If it’s not the big purrfectly round green eyes with purrfect eyeliner, or the fluffy white mittens, or the loooong whiskers far wider than she is, or the way she talks to herself when she plays, or the way she snuggles up to each of the other cats and they take her in, or the fact that just short of a year ago she was living in a filthy abandoned house with some pretty mean cats and I have no idea how she learned how to manipulate the world to her liking, I couldn’t tell you what’s so special about Mariposa. I thought I’d give you a taste of the cuteness I have to endure.
I also have sooo many photos I’ve taken of her with my DSLR, which I prefer, and haven’t had the time to process them lately. I’ve finished a number of things and now I can catch up, with Mariposa and many other things.

I even missed a week on social media too.
This has pretty much been the scene all week, I work in the studio, they settle in the room next door because, of course, they can’t leave me entirely alone up here.
Go away human, we’re discussing important cat things. (Should I be worried?)
The Homeless Cat Management Team/Pittsburgh C.A.T. Spaghetti Dinner!
Baff time. Mr. Sunshine and Mewsette are having a synchronized bath as only siblings can do. Mariposa has more work to do with all that hair.
I know you’re both innocent, but what was that noise we all just heard coming from where you are?
Bella is not properly supervising me by napping all day, but I have managed to be productive nonetheless.

Mimi in the Cat Book Library, and a Beautiful Morning, 2018
Mimi took her turn in the cat book library today, watching the neighborhood out the door. She fits purrfectly in that little spot. I’ve been planning to put a shelf there so the books don’t get worn since everyone likes to spend time there. Below is another view of Mimi, but the cat tunnel in the mirror isn’t so nice. This is all after we had a nice adventure out in the back yard, below that.
Mimi loves her “real” cat tree out in the back yard. I still haven’t had the last section of the wild black cherry tree removed. I hope to get it removed now that the weather has finally turned warm, and we hope it stays that way. But until then, we have to visit the tree every day.
My camera decided to focus on the grapevine as Mimi was walking along, but I like the way it looks. It’s Mimi in her favorite space, kind of dreamy, part of the environment.
While Mimi was exploring her favorite spaces, I was exploring mine with my camera. It was a blue and yellow and green morning. I am so happy to finally have flowers to photograph.
What other photos have I shared on this date?
What’s Out There?, 2017
I have no idea what we are intently watching but I just whispered, “What’s out there?” and Mimi turned slightly and whispered, “Murf”, like, “Shut up.”

Ophelia is a formerly feral foster who came to me in September 2015. By July 2016 she was pretty relaxed, as you can see. But she is such a bundle of cuteness that she has to think her name is “Oh My Goodness”! I’ve also included the graphic I created to help promote her adoption. She does love that mirror.
