Daily Sketch: Birdwatching, a Family Activity

This is Mr. Sunshine (kind of listening to me), Mimi (intently watching) and Mewsette (crouching to pounce) watching birds at the feeder outside the dining room window. They sleep in a heap, and they watch birds in a cluster, all pressed together, often with mama Mimi in the middle.

This has been a favorite spot lately, especially for Mimi who spends time there by herself on a regular basis, though there are no more birds this year than before. It could just be because there’s a furnace vent under that window and it might be a little warmer. Or it could be that they are in the kitchen when I’m in the kitchen. In any case, I love to watch them watch birds.

    • I tried to get all the flutters in there, Maru; this was just as much for sketching the birds as it was for the cats.
