Daily Photo: Repeating Cats

four black cats
Another cat pile…

I had another photo for today, but this development came up late in the afternoon. They are repeating because they look like parentheses and two are in the same shape, plus they repeat this activity all the time…another day, another cat pile. There are only four of them here—Bean was excited to have the chair in my studio all to himself, but Giuseppe and Mewsette are face to face and paw to paw to make a nice soft warm bed for their mom, and Mr. Sunshine offers support over on the right. Glad I didn’t have any papers I desperately needed to see underneath them…I could not have brought myself to make them move.

Thanks to a reader!

When I received my mail today I had a soft package. Confused—I hadn’t ordered anything, I checked the sender on the label, but I didn’t know her. But this is what she sent, modeled by Mewsette!

“I saw this and immediately knew you had to have it. Just a little thank you for all you do for cats everywhere!”

Thank YOU! We love it! It’s very inspiring too…it’s been a while since I’ve made pillows, but I love the design too.

And you’re right, they are magical. Here are Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine modeling the pillow…until they decided to do the “I’ll wash your back if you’ll wash mine” thing, which is why it’s a little blurry.

  • Your reader is So Right!! That is a perfect pillow for you n yours.
    I’m so Glad she sent it to you.. I bet you were thrilled to bits, heart doing those hippity-hops with joy, when you saw it!!
    Unexpected Spot-On presents are unbeatably Cheering.. n reassuring. Definitely, in tune with the Universe moments for both of you.
    Love the cat pile, too, I’ve become fascinated by the way Mama Mimi settles herself, so frequently, ONTO her big, soft, warm nippers.. and it seems to please them as much as it pleases her :))

    • Annie, it was so exciting! That never happens. And Mimi always uses her kids as a warm soft cat bed–she would tell you that’s what grown children are good for!

  • What a lovely surprise, Bernadette…you definitely deserve it! And they ARE magical…:-)

    • Sued, yes it was, especially on a busy busy Monday when I really needed a break from my computer–and it’s their magic day to day that I try to share!

  • Janice Dugan

    Perfect pillow for the furball guards.

    • Janice, I have to decide where it will go so we really can share it!
