Daily Photo: Giuseppe Sings for Breakfast, and Kittens

Giuseppe sings for breakfast.
Giuseppe sings for breakfast.

Giuseppe sings for his breakfast. His mother and siblings are not amused. Nor are they amused with me and my camera.

This was a Facebook post on Friday. The Five were a hit! After all the blurry photos, this one was worth it.

They’re ba-a-a-ack

They’re ba-a-ack! Simon and Teddy Bear conspire to keep me from getting anything done, and even laying on my hands to be sure I can’t type.

Am I Cute Enough?, 2014

Bean practices his utter cuteness by stopping me in my tracks as I walk through a doorway. A great way to enter the weekend!

Maximum Capacity One-and-one-half Cats, 2013

Mewsette and Giuseppe find a way to share a box that is really too small for either one of them.

In terms of actual physics, the box can only hold most of Mewsette OR Giuseppe, but certainly not both. However a little bit of feline ingenuity solved the problem of sharing the box—each of them has some of the box, and they are perfectly happy with that.

I love my loving siblings and the many wonderful things they do each day. I think I’ll try to come back from the store with a bigger box next time, though. Here is what they looked like from above.

A Moment With Mewsette, 2012

A moment with Mewsette.

Mewsette has been spending time with me in the mornings in the basement, and is a perfect subject, just being herself, and holding positions for whole seconds at a time.

After all the photos I’ve taken by this basement door, do I need to say I love the light that comes in at this angle, the shadows and patterns? Add a cat, and nothing could be better.

Wordless Wednesday: Here I Am

Mewsette peeks around the curtain at me, “How is this? Should I hold this pose? I’m ready for my close-up.”

A Kitty to Come Home To, 2011

Mimi Waits for Me

Every home needs a kitty who waits in the window for your return.

There is nothing more welcoming for me than a feline silhouette in one or more of my windows. Here, Mimi waits at the dining room window as I pull in front of the house with things to unload. Her greeting procedure once she has determined it’s me is to meow two quick “ee-eee” meows, stand up and stretch as tall as she can in the window, which is not terribly tall since she is tiny, and if the window is closed, slide her paws down the glass; if it’s open, she digs her claws into the screen—no, we don’t like this, but we live with it—stretch herself, then paw back down to the windowsill.

For half the 20 years I’ve been in this house I worked outside my home. The hours with that job were long and I rarely returned during daylight, but I had lamps on timers so that I wouldn’t come home to a dark house. I remember looking at my lit windows from as far down the street as I could see it, looking for my welcoming feline silhouettes—Sophie always at either the side window or my bedroom window upstairs in the front, Cookie in the front window downstairs, and Stanley and Kublai ranged around among the three downstairs windows. Even Sally, who was deaf, greeted me not just with a silhouette but with a meow I could hear outside even in winter when windows were closed. Any of the others of my feline family showed up at the windows as I walked up the side steps and came to the door, and all were at the door to greet me.

I can’t imagine it any other way.

  • Sometimes we sing when mom takes too long to get our dinner 😉
    We like peek-a-boo Bean.
    Julie is the one waiting in the window when mom comes home.
    Mom says it lifts her up 🙂
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,

    • Georgia and Julie, Giuseppe sings for everyone! Someone is always in the window when I come home, and it wouldn’t be my house without them.

  • bluemoonalone

    Poor Giuseppe..everyone’s a know how you feel about coming home to your cats…Best feeling ever…If no one else in this world loves me..They always show me that they do…

    • Bluemoonaloe, when I feel like I can’t do anything right, I know I can love them just fine and it’s more appreciated than most things I do in a day.
