Daily Photo: Jelly Bean Will Greet You

Jelly Bean will greet you.

…if we ever have guests again! I know Jelly Bean would love it if we had people coming by. He’s ready to sit and purr so loudly you can’t hear another human talk. So would all his siblings and fur siblings. And so would I! I guess we’ll just have to be patient, but when it does happen again, you’ll know that a house full of kitties will be here to greet you.


From around this date in past years

Lazy Days, 2019

The top of the wardrobe is Hamlet’s favorite spot since his orange juice box collapsed, but Mariposa goes where she will. She enjoys spending quiet time with each of the other cats, just as she likes trying to get them to play with her. She and Hamlet are famous for stalking each other and their high-speed chases, and just as quickly it’s quiet and they are sitting side by side at a window, sniffing the breeze. Just two formerly feral cats living the life.

What a nice spot for kitties.

Finally Warm Enough, 2017

Five at the door.

It’s a beautiful clear and sunny morning, and finally warm enough to open the basement door.

Toe Cleaning in Black and Green
Toe Cleaning in Black and Green

A kitty having a bath in the sink is not terribly noteworthy, but in 2009 I was still discovering the magic of black and green and the green reflection of the sink on Jelly Bean’s fur and especially his toe pads, was enchanting, and I also like this photo for its somewhat abstract quality. Read more, and purchase.

    I know! I bet your sweet kitty and her friends would love to have people stay over and visit… It’s hard on everyone, and every living thing who lives with us, NOT being able to visit with other people (and even other creatures!).

    Happy Father’s Day!
