Daily Photo: Today’s Array

Smokie and Bella are ready, but they aren’t sure what for.

This was today’s array of fine felines in the kitchen. Mimi and Giuseppe are there because they wanted a little time with me as I made lunch. Smokie and Bella are there because Mimi and Giuseppe are there. Smokie and Bella aren’t sure why they are there or what they are supposed to do or if something is supposed to happen, but the lead ninja teacher Giuseppe-sensei is there and they are happy to do whatever Giuseppe does, and they have absolute respect for Mimi. I have no counter space to work on, and I ate lunch standing up.

Below, it looks as if the human may do something interesting.

We’re ready!

“Give me some of something!” meows an impatient Smokie. “Shut up, you little idiot, you’ll ruin everything!” says Bella.

Maybe we’re just supposed to have a nap?

A Secret Cat Bed, 2012

Bean enjoys his secret cat bed.

Jelly Bean discovered a well-hidden secret. Inside that big cabinet that all cats have spent much time on and around is a secret cat bed! Jelly Bean made his amazing discovery while his human was attempting to put away the laundry. She even had the nerve to ask him to remove himself from his newly-found treasure after he had spent quite some time preparing the dishtowels to his liking and then having a quick face wash before settling in for a long afternoon nap. What was that about “your weight”, and “it wasn’t intended to have a cat in it”? What kind of a house would a cat live in that had things that cats weren’t meant to be in? It’s the perfect size and shape for a Bean!

  • Love the looks of anticipation!
    The expressions on the young kitties is so intense,
    while Giuseppe has the 1000 yard stare that says “I would like some of that”
    Yup. Cats on “their” counter 😉

    • Giuseppe knows he’s not getting anything, but it’s worth a try, Georgia and Julie!

  • “I have no counter space to work on, and I ate lunch standing up.” I really, honestly, did laugh out loud. Laughing with you, not at you. Because I’ve been there.

    • Oh, Harry, I’m sure you don’t let your cats up on your counters! 😉

      • Oh, of course not. They do sometimes allow me to prepare my food on *their* counters, however.
        (PS – whoever said cat’s can’t taste sweet things has never seen a cat devour a pecan pie.)

        • And there isn’t much sweeter than a pecan pie, either, Harry!
