Daily Photo: Today’s Catpile

four black cats
They’ve put their heads together.

Yep, that’s really what it looks like when four black cats decide to have an afternoon nap on the bed. One by one they answered the call of the warm wool afghan and tucked themselves together like puzzle pieces, leaving Mimi and me to stop by and look at them now and then.

Below, all curled together, and they are purring. And delightful to press your hands into on a cold afternoon—they don’t even mind cold hands in a warm belly.

And they’re purring.

Mewsette wakes up for a brief moment as Bean resettles himself after a quick bath. Back to sleep everyone.

“Can we sleep?”

PeeEss! Mama Bernadette came home with white hairs on her clothes after she’d been out this afternoon! Couldn’t she at least have cleaned them off if she was cheating on us with another kitty? Checking on cats for a friend? Oh sure! That’s a likely excuse!

Well, meet Sweetie Pie, Bianca and Lucky, three of five kitties I visited tonight—Fairway and Molly got out of sight before I got out the camera! Believe me now?! All is well.

Computer? What computer?, 2013

Computer? What computer?

What made you think I was interested in your computer?

You turned your head so fast when I looked at you that your face is a blur.

So I can’t turn my head but you think I’m looking at your stupid computer? What would I want with it anyway?

It’s not you, it’s Mr. Sunshine I’m concerned about.

What does he have to do with me?

Don’t act all innocent. He’s right on the floor ready to jump up.

And do what? Order something?

Oh, Bean. I’m going to put my keyboard and mouse away just to be sure.

We weren’t going to do anything with it!

Bean, you are as transparent as you are cute. Don’t let your brother lead you astray.

No, really! We weren’t going to do anything!!

Your brother just snuck out of the room, Bean, stop protesting.

Mama Bernadette, [purrrrs] you didn’t really think I was going to do something with your computer, did you? [twirls around, bats eyelashes, purrrs and acts cute] I’m too cute to be bad!

I know you don’t have it in you, Bean, and I don’t mean in your nature, I mean up here in your head [kitty headlock].

I could never do a thing like that! [purring louder and giving headbutts]

You’re more correct than you realize, Bean.
