From the Archives: Peaches and Kelly, 2008

two cats on bed
Peaches and Kelly have the bedroom all to themselves.

In honor of Peaches’ rescue story today, here’s a photo of her with her buddy Kelly on my bed from May 5, 2008. Kelly was always a little vigilant, even with me, but Peaches never had a care in the world, she just assumed everything was okay and every person and cat was good., it was really that simple. That’s the best thing about a senior kitty—for the most part, all the drama is done and they just expect to be loved.

Don’t they make you want to adopt a senior kitty or two?

It’s sweet to see the two of them together—today they’d be my daily sketch, but this photo was also in my “future paintings” folder. While I like it very much as a photo, I’ve been wanting to explore the two of them in watercolors, brighten up the colors a little and open up the shadows for more detail. Someday soon…

Browse the archive of all daily photos, just photos from the archive or vintage photos or Wordless Wednesday, or choose a cat’s name from the category list on the home page to browse an archive of photos featuring and including that cat.
