Double Decker Bath: 2009

two cats bathing on boxes
Double Decker Bath.

I just happened to see this photo as I was browsing for other photos recently.

It’s Kelly and Peaches, and apparently I’ve set my boxes of freshly-printed greeting cards and their envelopes on my desk for their use as after-dinner bathing spots. Cats are very quick to put elements of their environment to good use, and a good bathing spot is nearly as important as a good sleeping spot. By looking at my photos from this time, I had to leave these boxes there for at least three days for Kelly and Peaches to have their nightly baths. Creatures of habit as well, Kelly was always on the left-hand lower box, and Peaches on the right-hand upper box. Well, that was only right—Peaches was, after all, the more senior cat at 19 years old, Kelly was only 15.

Their positions as well are just so “cat”, Kelly with her leg in the air, and Peaches in one of her classic nautilus-style belly-washing poses—talk about flexible!
