Daily Photo: Office Cat

Mimi was the office supervisor today.

Mimi was my office supervisor this morning from high-atop the sorting shelves, at eye level. I think she’s done with it for now. (What would I do without her! This was from Monday.)

Some other shenanigans in the office.

Mimi was of the opinion that the box, being small and rather flat, was the purrrfect size for her morning nap. Sans adult children. (From August 10.)

It's really just a small box.

Their box runneth over. Mimi got them back for joining her in the little box the other day by lying down on both of them. Really, the box is pretty flat by now. (From August 15.)

And some more office shenanigans—from years ago!

From the Archives: The Persistence of Cats, 2010

The Persistence of Cats

If you remember the painting by Salvador Dali, “The Persistence of Memory”, where clocks are draped over a tree branch, off the edge of a table and over an amorphous rounded object, it’s that painting that people refer to when they say, “It’s like that Dali painting,” when inanimate objects are draped over other inanimate objects in that strange surrealist way. Well, maybe that doesn’t happen all that often in anyone else’s life, but my cats draping themselves in total relaxation on just about anything has always made me think of that painting. I have always said I would do a painting of all my cats forever (so far) draped over random things in my household. Above is a start. Mr. Sunshine fully on his back leaning on the shelf, Peaches draped off the edge of the desk, and Cookie woke up and looked at me because that was her job.

Below is Dickie on the same day at the same time in one of his fantastical sleeping contortions on the butterfly rug. Sometimes I couldn’t figure out how he could breathe. It’s nowhere near that hot this August, but I remember that summer. Memory is persistent. So are cats.
