Daily Photo Reprise: Shades of Green, 2012

two black cats with green eyes
Mewsette and Jelly Bean model their green eyes.

This is not to take off on the title of a certain series of books, it is actually the first thing I thought when I looked at these photos; there was, of course, more than one photo to choose from. Now that the trees have leafed out the sunlight reflects green into the house and enhances all those green eyes. Even my yellow art glass bowl hanging in the upper right corner looks green, and the wall behind—actually those are seen in that lovely round antique mirror, the wall and ceiling of the stairwell colored green by the light from the big window in my office at the foot of the stairs.

What wonderful faces to greet me at the top of the stairs. And today Mewsette upstages brother Bean for having bigger eyes and longer whiskers, the biggest and longest in the whole house, unlike yesterday when Bean exposed himself for the sake of winning a non-existent cuteness award.

Don’t forget, you still have time to adopt a pair of house panthers to inspire you with their sleek beauty during Adopt a Cat Month!

  • Good shot – we have black cats and it is very hard to get clear photos of them. We also want to thank you for Angel Chica’s birthday wishes.

    • We have five here, and when they all get together they are like a big puddle of darkness. I’ve had seven years of perfecting the technique! We lost two tortie sisters last year, Cookie at 20 and Kelly at 19. We still celebrate their memories.

  • It goes without saying: If you celebrate International Box Day, you must certainly hand out cuteness awards.
    (So why did I say it. . . ?)

    • The kids have been lobbying for this. I ask them what their point might be.
