Daily Photo: Please Stop the Sweetness, I’m Not Getting Anything Done

two black cats
Such sweetness, I couldn’t take it any more.

Giuseppe and Bean exchange sleepy nose taps. I used one of the filters on my Smartphone to take this, on the “vintage” setting. I take so many photos of them at this window that it’s fun to have a way to vary them and the filters work well with the simple setting. But I don’t know how many I actually took! And I also had my DSLR there…

It’s hard to tell, but they are all tangled together, belly to belly, and just barely fit on the top of the wardrobe.

Sunshine came up after hearing all the fuss I was making, and the three tried to decide who would be where.

“We’re not planning anything.”

Kennedy wanted to know what was up out there and could he join? He’s feeling great, considering all his challenges. He wants to hang out with the guys!

Kennedy says “hi”!

And just after I got this one I stepped in there with him and Mewsette hopped up on the top of the baby gate, intent on his food, while he was intent on introducing himself. He talks to other cats. I missed the shot, the camera just could not focus in time, but it was incredibly sweet.

Then, back downstairs, Mr. Sunshine is airing himself out again on a hot day.

Mr. Sunshine exposes himself yet again.

A little later as I shuffled plastic bins Mimi and Bean took their positions once again atop this one, curling in one melting position after another. They’ve been at this for days and I think they have it perfected.

Bean and Mimi curl in various positions all through the day.

They followed me as I carried bins around and my tablecoverings from the wash. At some point some smart cat, probably Mewsette rubbing her face on the edge or swatting underneath for Mimi’s tail, closed the back door while Mimi was looking out the screen door. She appears highly displeased. But no one can get mad at Mewsette.

Someone closed the door with Mimi inside!

All in all, between that and the abundant garden with everything beginning to bloom in earnest, it’s a surprise I got anything at all done today but taking photos.

Photos pulled “From the Archives” were taken by one or another digital camera of mine between 2002 and, well, yesterday, but usually they are older than that, and I had never had the chance to feature them. They’re a fun way to “introduce” other members of my feline family who came and went before I began blogging, and to illustrate my feline family in general from days gone by.
