Daily Photo Reprise: Imitation is…2013

black cat on green sink.
I am not imitating my brother. I would never do that.

Giuseppe tries a “Mr. Sunshine” move since it gets his brother so much attention…

Are you going to turn our faucet on? Look at poor Jelly Bean, he’s desperate for even just one single drop.

All of you just had drinks at your fountain in the kitchen.

We’ve been waiting all day in here.

You just had breakfast.

Giuseppe gives me a piece of his mind.

Just one more drink from the faucet for old time’s sake?

You guys just play games with me, you ask me to turn it on and then when I do you leave.

We had waited so long we aren’t thirsty anymore.

That’s not the way “thirsty” works.

We think you like Mewsette better than you like us.

What does Mewsette have to do with this.

You always turn on the water when she asks.

Because she only asks once in a while, and she always has a drink.

You girls really stick together, don’t you?

You boys do.

Perhaps our needs aren’t as important to you any more.

Perhaps you need to shut up so that I can get a good photo of you, and eventually you can earn your living through it like Mr. Sunshine.

Certainly you don’t think I’m imitating my brother, do you?

No, Giuseppe, you are totally unique, and no one would ever mistake you for your brother.

Are you done with that black thing now? Can you turn on the water.

Since you asked so nicely…

Compositions in Black and Green 2014 and other calendars from The Creative Cat

Giuseppe is the October calendar cat in Compositions in Black and Green 2014, a calendar featuring the Fantastic Four and the Mama Mimi in the vintage mint green bathroom, just being their lovely selves. Based on Compositions in Black and Green 2013 with all new photos, this year even includes Emeraude and Lakota!

Special Offer for Black Cat Adoptions

Now through 2014, I’ll send a copy of my Compositions in Black and Green 2014 calendar to anyone who rescues or adopts a black cat so that you can use it to keep track of all the wonderful things your house panther does. Or keep track of the house panther you’ve rescued so that you can keep track of veterinary records and send it along with the person who adopts the cat you’ve rescued.

Just email your rescue story to me, or a copy of your adoption contract—all personal information you don’t want to share eliminated of course—and a photo of your cat. I will keep all of your information completely private unless you want to share it with my readers.

If you’d like to to purchase a Compositions in Black and Green 2014 calendar as a gift or for yourself, visit my Etsy shop.

    • Don’t tell Giuseppe I said so, but he has some practicing to do to catch up to his brother!

  • I bet he left after you turned it on, didn’t he?

    • Of course! They have me trained. I try not to waste too much water.
