Giuseppe looks out the window…in the mirror, and perhaps wonders about the kitty he sees there. Probably he sees a reflection of Fatso the squirrel on the nieghbor’s roof, but I did catch him admiring himself before I got my camera.
Really, it’s said that recognizing one’s self is a sign of intelligence and people debate whether animals truly can. I see the expression in my cats’ eyes and it’s definitely one of recognition, and I presume they recognize themselves. The Five all resemble each other but before these close relations my cats were all quite different, tabbies and torbies and torties and white and gray and spotted and long-haired and short-haired, yet I still saw the same sense of recognition in their expressions. And in my favorite photo of Jelly Bean I am absolutely certain he is admiring himself!
Later, he watches a stinkbug slowly traverse the bathroom ceiling, making for an interesting composition. Looks like two more for the 2014 version of Compositions in Black and Green.
