Daily Photo Reprise: Mr. Sunshine’s ManCatCave, 2011

He’s got one, he’s not sure what to do with it, but he can always sit in it and look super-cool and enigmatic. Mr. Sunshine thinks of himself as the James Dean kind of a kitty. Not sure where he gets the idea. But the green bag sure beat the heck out of the pink and purple butterfly because it’s from Dick’s Sporting Goods and he heard that’s a manly kind of thing.

It’s a big green non-woven shopping bag that a customer gave to me to reproduce the artwork for printing. I put too much into it—the bag is HUGE, what else would I do?—and both handles came off. It’s come very much in handy for several days now to amuse a clowder of black cats, thereby keeping them off my desk for most of the time I’m working.

Mr. Sunshine wasn’t sure how to decorate his mancatcave, though I did find a catnip candy cane in there so perhaps he intended to turn it into a sort of feline opium den, mom and sister not invited. But he ended up with everyone in there at one point or another, then today I saw all four of them sleeping on it, flattened. So much for the mancatcave, but Mr. Sunshine felt pretty cool for a few days there.
