Daily Photo Reprise: Excuse Me, Girlfriend?

“What’s that, sister?” Cookie asks Mimi. It was no problem.

Cookie acts tough over something Mimi said. Catnip has interesting effects!

Cookie and Mimi actually get along just fine, but Mimi kept trying to: 1) steal the limelight as I was photographing The Goddess, and; 2) steal the catnip candy cane from under Cookie’s paws. Cookie gives a friendly warning, her ears and whiskers swept forward, and a warning was enough for Mimi, ears and whiskers swept back.

Cookie’s coloring looks odd because she is in full sun so her details are flashed out in order to get any detail in Mimi, who is in shadow. Why couldn’t they have been reversed?!

I mistakenly included this in a post from last week, “Catnip Party”. As I post reprise photos, I have been going back to the raw files and refining them in a way I didn’t have the capability at the time, and I often do several at the same time to save time, and at this time of the year they were having catnip parties in the sun nearly every day. This one is one of my favorites and I thought it fun to run it again.
