Daily Photo: Three Cats Sharing One Sun Beam

Three black cats sharing one sun beam.

We haven’t had a whole lot of these lately!

The sun’s angle is finally changing so that we get a sliver of sun at the end of the afternoon. Mimi was the first to find it and settle, then as if drawn by some call that I couldn’t hear they each wandered in and sauntered through the sun while Mimi stayed where she was. Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe ended up sharing it with her and, believe me, not one sparkle of that sun beam escaped their gleaming black fur.

I am transfixed by their beauty when touched by the sun.

On the Box, 2012

How many black cats can fit on the top of a box?

Any new item must be used in every way possible by every cat in the house. I’ve been moving boxes of merchandise around and everyone has been very busy.

Here Jelly Bean, Mr. Sunshine, Mimi, Mewsette settle on the top of this box and pose for a photo.

Then they start to shuffle around, Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine trap Mimi between them and give her a good bath. After all, their mom has dispensed with a lot of baths of them. Jelly Bean just waits for things to calm down.

Then finally they all settle in, and Mr. Sunshine becomes the communal pillow, looking very relaxed and comfortable about his role here. Jelly Bean is on the end, on top of Sunshine’s hips, Mimi and Mewsette are sitting being him and draped over him, kind of like little baby possums line up on their mother.

Mimi and Mewsette use Mr. Sunshine as a pillow, and even Jelly Bean, that lump at the end.

I think Mewsette has the head-tilt cute-kitty slightly-sad-eyes down all the way.
