Daily Photo Reprise: Cookie’s Blessing, 2011

Mewsette requests a blessing.

Mewsette approached Cookie as she was at her bath today, with her head respectfully bowed. Normally Cookie ignores her and sometimes gives her a good swat, but today she reached out and pulled Mewsette’s face close to hers and briefly licked Mewsette’s forehead and ear. Mewsette’s existence is now justified.

Cookie obliges.

Cookie is 19, Mewsette 4, a big sister who is little, and a little sister who is big. Mousse often makes these overtures toward Cookie and, often, she will simply be near Cookie. Cookie doesn’t think she needs a guardian but likes Mewsette’s company.

Like Peaches before her, Cookie feels it’s just her due as the grande dame of the household.

Like Cookie before them all, Mewsette is simply being vigilant with her senior brothers and sisters.

Here’s another image of Cookie with Mewsette, who keeps watch as Cookie sleeps, and another from the archives.
