Daily Photo: Open Your Eyes

two black cats in box
Jelly Bean and Mewsette attempt to ignore me.

“Here she is with that black box thing again. We can’t even get a little nap in.”

“Let’s try to ignore her, maybe she’ll go away.”

“She usually doesn’t stop no matter what we do.”

“She’s circling us now.”

“Next she’ll be waving her hands and talking to us as if we don’t notice her.”

“What do you suppose she’s waiting for us to do?”

“She probably wants us to look at her.”

“Do you suppose we should?”

“She did put this box here for us.”

“And we have been sleeping in it all day.”

“We won’t get any peace unless we do.”

“Let’s get it over with.”

    You were so fortunate they both decided to open their eyes at the same time and look at you. Love that photo so much! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    I am sure that is exactly what my cats think.
    Sometimes they will not even condescend to look at me.
    They make me work for those pics 🙂
    Though they did look at you, the expression is priceless!
    I also like mewsette choosing her cracker!
    Nancy & the kitties

      Nancy, I recognize when your cats are doing the same thing!

      You have one photo that I actually adore–it’s Tillie in her box, looking at you through the hand-hole and all you see are her eyes. And she looks a little annoyed!
