Daily Photo: Mewsette’s Resolution

I just want to touch them.

I will not touch the two little screws Mama Bernadette placed in the middle of the frame.

Those two little screws are really tempting.

Do you think she's really looking at me?

They're right there...

But the wire is mine!

Mewsette gets her reward.

My erstwhile framing assistant, Mewsette, is nothing if not enthusiastic about helping me on my table. But she’s not always, well, helpful. I just have to let her have her way for a while, then she has to let me have mine. It’s hard for a kitty to learn that everything really is not a toy, especially those to cute little screws in the middle of the paper backing on that big picture. One swat and they’d be on the moon! But Mewsette has learned that if she does that, Mama Bernadette will pick her up and put her on the floor, and not let her back up on the table, and that just won’t do.

Happy Mew Year, everyone!

    I was not expecting THAT!! Silly human… you’d think I’d catch on, but no…. Luckily there were no cats on my lap when I saw this or they would have bounced off, I was laughing so hard!! I am once again in awe of your ability to capture these moments. BRAVO!!

      I have to let her have something! She has learned to curb her enthusiasm, but I’m glad you started out the year with a good laugh.

    Popped over from Rumpy Dog. This looks all too familiar. Even if it takes a bit longer to get things done, they are great company aren’t they.
