Daily Photo: Interesting Formations

A strange formation.
A strange formation.

Sometimes I just don’t know what to do when Mimi and her kids go into a mode of patterns and formations, sometimes adding other feline household members too. The best I can do is just take a lot of pictures.

Yesterday first the four got themselves into a rather meditative formation, then Mimi came and sat near them with some intention.

After a while, they all got up and shuffled around and ended up in some disarray, but a nice disarray.

In disarray
In disarray

Then I looked again and they had all turned their backs on me, four in the back and one in front.

Facing away.

So I got my camera and walked all around them. They were roughly facing the front door.

Five facing.
Five facing.

Then Mariposa saw them and came to sit on the stool.

Mariposa joins them.

And they all stayed like that.

Staying in place

It never ceases to amaze me how they act together as a group. But setting themselves up in a row sitting with one crouching in front? I just don’t know. I just know I love them.

Photos from years past.


Exciting New Grocery Boxes, 2017

Maximum capacity.

Maximum capacity of this box is one Jelly Bean and one Mr. Sunshine less Sunshine’s tail which apparently doesn’t fit.

Below, Basil has his very own grocery box. I can see I should get bigger boxes.

Glad to be home and off my feet for a while.

You may see a few extra photo posts for a few days. I’ve been getting so behind in posting the ones from Instagram. My plan is to share them here when I share them on IG so you get to see them somewhere near the day I took them.

This will all even out eventually! Shows and studio time make it difficult but we are adjusting.

Bean laughs because everyone is laying on him!

They have to do everything in groups of three, or four…or five. A friend gave me a new bed for them, and this is the result, four of them in the bed immediately, even if they don’t all fit. Jelly Bean is laughing because everyone is lying on top of him. How can I tell them apart? Well, look at those expressions!

    OH. MY. GOSH! Synchronized catting! So lovely! Angel and Chuck stopped doing things together at an early age, and if they ever were in a window together or napping near each other, I’d snap away with my camera! Now, Da Boyz do almost everything side-by-side, and I have so many images of them, that I’ve devoted a whole day of my cat blog to just those photos! But yours…yours…it’s mind-blowing how beautiful they are! WOW!
