Daily Photo: Oh, Brother!

Oh, Brother!

“Oh, brother!” says Jelly Bean as he snuggles up to Giuseppe.

Jelly Bean just can’t get close enough to his brother, Giuseppe. Giuseppe apparently thinks he’s quite close enough.

“Oh, brother,” Giuseppe mumbles sotto voce.

My Toy, 2013

Mr. Sunshine is hitting the ‘nip, literally.

Someone’s been hitting the ‘nip lately, literally and figuratively. And actually shredding a few of the toys.

Mr. Sunshine knows I wouldn’t dare take his catnip toy. And even though it’s long past Christmas and he’s still celebrating with his catnip Christmas tree, I don’t dare put it away.

He’s as cuddly as he looks, though, when he’s not kicking a catnip toy to death.

Kelly With Apples and Scale, 2012

Kelly With Apples and Scale.

Kelly wins the pretty award today for choosing an interesting spot to sleep and making an otherwise cluttered spot look like an elegant still life.

The sun’s angle is really beginning to move now at the vernal equinox, and all the cats are rediscovering their sunny summer spots. Kelly loves this corner of the bookcase, and while I had had it somewhat decorated over the winter I’ve started moving things around to make more room for her, hence the clutter.

Looks like a painting to me.

And despite my best efforts to make a painting of it this past year, it is still a painting in waiting. Perhaps for March 19, 2014?

Guess not! I’ll try for March 19, 2015.
