Daily Photo Reprise: May I See Some ID? 2010 and 2007

May I see some I.D.?
May I see some I.D.?

“This is a private party for ‘Cats Who Drink Straight from the Tap’. You need to be a member of this club to enter.”

“This is my bathroom.”

“This is our bathroom. We grew up in here.”

“This is my house.”

“Nonsense. We spend more time here than you do.”

“I’m your human.”

“That’s nice.”

“I open the food.”

“Of course you do.”

“I might decide not to.”

“Of course you won’t.”

“Who turns on the faucet for this party?”


“Guess you have to let me in.”

“I was going to anyway.”


Stay tuned for a vintage dose of cuteness

So he not only has a little bit of practice at this head-tilt thing, he’s also sitting in nearly exactly the same spot!

Right now the vintage mint green sink is to your left as you walk in the door, flush in the corner, but when they were babies the end of the tub was in that corner. It really was a favorite ambush spot! When the bathroom was completely rearranged and my sink ended up there, Mr. Sunshine just “got a raise” because he still does this today!

But to put him in perspective, he is at about 8 weeks old, just about exactly five years ago, in fact, and here is what the little fuzzball looked like when I walked into the room…

Tiny Mr. Sunshine!

To see other photos of the Fantastic Four as babies, search Curious Quartet, which is what I called them as kittens.

The images above were featured in March in Compositions in Black and Green 2013, “silly cute and artful photos of five black cats cavorting against a backdrop of mint green and white, just the thing to show others what black cats can bring to your life.” I’m currently working on the 2014 calendar!

Click the image of the calendars to go to my “calendars” page to read more about each one including what photos are featured on each page and, for In the Kitchen With Cookie, which recipe is featured. I’ve provided a book-flip slideshow so you can browse the pages too. I’ll be offering all my 2014 calendars soon!
