Daily Photo: In the Absence of a Decent Piece of Paper

black cat steps on tissue.
Mimi steps onto the tissue, the only thing resembling a decent piece of paper in the whole room.

…a tissue will do. Everyone knows a cat can’t sit right on a cabinet. Humans need to be aware of these things.

Poor Mimi was left with nowhere to sit as we worked in the kitchen this afternoon. Often she sits on my cookbook, but I wasn’t using one, and not even a recipe could be found. I had opened the mail at my desk so there were no post cards or envelopes, and not even a Post-it.  She found this tissue, as yet unused, and decided that if that was all that was available, she’d have to make it work. And she did manage to give herself a complete bath and apparently found it quite comfortable. Each time she left it to follow me around, she returned right to it.
