Daily Photo Reprise: I Thought I’d Make the Bed, 2011

five cats on bed
Thought I’d make the bed.

Every day it’s a race to get upstairs before they do so I can flip up the sheet and quilt and cover the pillows. Why? I just like it that way. Gone are the days when I used to do this as soon as I got up; I just don’t stand a chance with cats who run all over the bed and practically carry me down to the kitchen.

But too bad for me in a house full of cats who need their beauty sleep.

And then what else is a dark and cold October afternoon good for? I think it’s great for focusing on a big project and working all day. Who am I to question their choice of activities?

Here you see all four of Mimi’s Children with Cookie: Giuseppe, Cookie, Mewsette in a row, and Mr. Sunshine closer to the camera. You can’t see, but he is very present in the lump under the covers next to Mr. Sunshine, is Jelly Bean. Usually it’s Giuseppe under the covers, but not so this afternoon.

Here’s another with all four of Mimi’s Children much younger as Cookie shows ’em how to play with a catnip mouse. I know Mewsette is out of the photo, actually on the pillows, perhaps because she has already learned the lesson. This is the three boys, or the “three stooges” from January 2009.

“Are you watching?” Cookie asks.
