Daily Photo: Mimi’s Mother’s Day

Mimi enjoys the company of her children.

Mimi enjoys the company of her grown kittens on Mother’s Day. “They are all so good, so good to each other and so good to me,” Mimi says. “I am so fortunate.”

I don’t think so. I think she’s a good mom and they were lucky to inherit her sweet disposition. Really, I think I’m the one who’s lucky!

And, of course, we have to have the weekend “five black cats” photo!

A Righteous Yawn, With Lots of Whiskers, 2011

Mr. Sunshine’s big whiskers.

I’d give a big yawn too if I was lazing in the sun on my bed in the middle of an afternoon.

I just loved the way Mr. Sunshine’s whiskers caught the light, the compositions of dark and light in large soft areas and the clarity of that detail. It almost looks abstract at first. In this case, the colors in the photo were distracting from the composition, so I desaturated it and made it a black and white image.

Mom, You’re So Funny!, 2011

Mr. Sunshine is highly amused.

Mr. Sunshine laughs so hard at me he simply rolls around and waves his paws.

I have no idea what I did that was so funny, but I’m glad he’s amused.

Probably it was one of the times I nearly fell off my chair. Or I said something which only cats find funny.

Or perhaps he’s just feeling good on his table in front of the window!

I probably shouldn’t be such an intellectual about it…
