Daily Photo: Mewsette

Mewsette on the Table

Big fluffy Mewsette enjoys a sunbath on the table. I didn’t know whether to pet her plushy fur or stand back and photograph her, so I did both. She looks a little annoyed because I’d stopped petting her to take another photo. So I went back to pet her some more.

We Are Not Amused, 2017

We are not amused.
We are not amused.

Mimi has found the old park bench to be an appropriate place from which to view her domain. I think she felt Mewsette was just a little too silly with her antics in the back yard when she joined us again, below. Isn’t she beautiful?

But she started out making funny faces while downloading her pee mail.

That's some message!

And then, most horrifying of all, she engaged in her pole dance routine. Somehow she always manages to find her way to the clothes pole in the patio by the basement door.

In the meantime, Mimi found another use for her bench. What a great scratcher!

And I had posted these photos on Instagram first because the server at my internet host has been having issues for the past few weeks and is being replaced, so sometimes when I have the time to post the server is interminably slow and I just have to give up. But I visualize some of the photos I’ve taken even with my DSLR with Instagram filters. I liked the one of Mimi on the bench filtered but often Instagram reduces the resolution so I worked out how to achieve the same effect in Photoshop. That’s the photo at the top, below is the original photo where I think she stand out more. I like them both! Maybe it’s just because I like Mimi.

We are not amused without the "filter".

Pewter Kitty, 2016

This photo of Ophelia just happened to work out cropped this way. She looks almost abstract, so I removed the color from all but her amber eye.I see some designs coming from this.

Good Morning! 2015
Good Morning!
Good Morning!

The light is great on these early spring mornings before the sun angles upward and the trees sprout their leaves. Poor felines have to wait for their breakfast until I’m done taking pictures! Well, thy just have to work for their food. I know that goes against all felines stand for, but I really think they enjoy the attention they get from it!

From the left, Mr. Sunshine is turned around and bathing himself behind Giuseppe, then Mimi and Bean are in some sort of a little conversation, Bella is next to Bean and Mewsette is washing the top of her head. Bella and Mewsette have been spending some girl time together with little naps and grooming and also wrestling and wild chases around the house.

The fun part for me at mealtime, though, is trying to get a photo with all seven, which is usually not possible because not only is the cabinet a little too small, but they are very busy while they wait—the conditions outside the doors and windows must be monitored and all corners, nooks and crannies of the kitchen must be inspected, so there’s a lot of coming and going and jumping up and down. One of these days I’ll get a video, but having only two hands it’s difficult. They watch me from the cabinet because I am rinsing their dishes in hot water to warm them. Their food comes from the refrigerator and the warm dish helps to bring it to room temperature more quickly, helps the scent of it rise up to their noses, and just makes the meal more enjoyable for them. Then, most exciting, I am putting their food in the bowls and adding things like a probiotic or a supplement depending on the food, and always a little extra warm water, and it smells really good. It takes all their good manners to keep from jumping into the sink and onto the counter and onto me, but they are very, very good kitties.

Mewsette emerges into the sun with the blue fuzzy she has chased around and around and around my room until finally she captured it and presents it to me. I am honored. Her triumphal stance is priceless. Read more and purchase.

  • Bernadette, your cats are so beautiful and special. I have five black cats and one grey, and I cannot imagine life without them; I love them so much. Our oldest will be nine in October, and our youngest will be one this May. All have been with us since they were kittens. Your photography, stories, and artwork never cease to amaze and inspire me, and although I’m not good at posting comments, I wanted to take a minute to tell you just how much I love your cats and your blog. Thank you for all you do. With love to you and your cats, Agatha

    • Agatha, thank you for taking the time to write to me! I understand–I rarely comment on all the blogs I read either. What a wonderful household! All spread out over the years, and I wonder if your one gray kitty felt like Theo or Ophelia when they were here. I’m so happy to be able to share my cats and cat art and information with you. There’s a lot more to come this year, I can assure you! I’m lucky I have the time to post between the rescues and the new works. I can’t imagine what I’d be doing if not for my cats!
