Daily Photo Reprise: Feeling Left Out, 2012

Bean keeps his white spot clean.

Sometimes Bean feels left out because he isn’t…exactly…a black cat. Not like his mom and siblings. He’s got those troubling…white spots.

But he makes up for it by being the cutest thing on four legs, and he makes the most out of those white spots too, lifting his chin to show his white spot so you know where to scratch him, and when he absolutely needs to he shows off his blazing white…thong.

Here he demonstrates how well he keeps it clean. Why did he decide to settle down on my desk, facing me, and offer this display?

It probably had something to do with the photo I’d just posted—his mom and Sunshine and Mewsette were about to become famous, and he had to have his part in the action!
