Daily Photo: Things Really Just Aren’t Fair Sometimes

Mr. Sunshine has the box and won't get out.
Mr. Sunshine has the box and won’t get out.

Mr. Sunshine just isn’t playing fair. He’s been in the box all day and he won’t get out. We’re supposed to take turns. Look how comfortable he is in there. I could be that comfortable too, if only my brother would get out of the box. This just ruined my whole day. And that human only has one box available anywhere in the house. How is a cat supposed to get his daily sleep without a box? I guess I have to sit here and wait for him to go and use the litter box before I can get in the box. That could take forever!

Jelly Bean sat there for the longest time (about ten minutes), looking at Sunshine in the box and then looking at the floor, and then looking pitiful. Sunshine did not wake up and get out of the box in that time, and I did not put down another box. Sad kitty. I hope if you had a bad day it was only because someone would not give up the box so you could have a nice cozy nap.

Charm has a few things to learn about manners. Basil was impressed, though.

I actually posted this last week and forgot to share it here.

Summer Birds, 2011

“That’s a house finch, the one with the red cap.”

“Okay, this noisy one down here who’s swearing at me is a tufted titmouse.”

“He is noisy! I thought the wren was bad with her language but this guy is swearing in languages other than bird.”

“Let’s keep staring at him.”


“He’s really nuts now.”

“That one’s a house sparrow.”

“No it’s not, it’s a female house finch! They all are—they’re the red guy’s harem.”

“Birds don’t have harems, stupid. They mate for life, just two birds.”

“Mom found an article that said that just wasn’t true, that birds played around.”

“Whatever, but that’s not a house sparrow.”

“Go get the guidebook!”

“Mom put it away in the book case with the door.”

“That’s no wonder. ‘Someone’ forgot to put it back on her pile the last time and she thought she’d lost it.”

“She leaves it all over the place, it wasn’t my fault.”

“Careful, she’s standing right behind us.”

“Oh, she’s taking a picture again.”

“Okay, the one that’s nearest the red guy is his wife, but the other two are house sparrows.”

“Let’s see if we can read mom’s mind. Sometimes she talks to herself and says it out loud.”

“Let’s both turn and look at her, she’ll probably talk to us if we do. Maybe she’ll say what they are.”

Hey guys, are you enjoying the birds?

“No good. What else can we try?”

Those tufted titmice are really squawking up a storm, aren’t they?

“Wrong bird. What next?’

Guess I’d better get back to work. Why don’t you two try not being so cute so I can get something done around here?

“I guess we’ll never know.”

      You don’t want to mix it up with Mr. Sunshine! Charm has climbed every screen once, just to do it. She’s pretty pleased with herself.
