Daily Photo Reprise: The Apple Doesn’t Fall Too Far From the Tree…2012

two black cats
Mimi and Bean—who is built just like his mom?!

Wait a minute—seeing double, or what?!

What are the chances I’d get a comparison this clear? Jelly Bean doesn’t really have his mom’s facial features and his head isn’t quite as round, but he’s built just like her down to the divots around their shoulders. They have the same short fur with the distinct mahogany cast, petite paws, shorter tail, pleasantly rounded figure even to the angle of their front legs.

Wonder if Mimi is proud of her children? I’m sure!

Bean looks a little startled because we woke him up.

Here’s another comparison with her children, with Giuseppe in a box where you can clearly see the similarity in their eyes.

I got dozens of lovely photos on this sunny morning when all were gathered in this sunny area, but this one really stood out. Hope they gather there again so I can show off more of how beautiful they are on a mild sunny spring morning!

  • Mimi and Giuseppe seem to be identical! Mommy was smiling after she saw Jelly Bean and Mimi, but after she checked out the “Box Photo,” she was beaming! She so loves black kitties and all of yours are beyond precious. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

    • Kitties Blue, there’s just a difference in size! I was actually surprised when I took that photo and saw the similarities; because he is twice her size, the similarities are difficult to see in real life.
