From the Archives: Still Life With Orange Cat, June 27, 2007

You humans are such a big yawn.

Mr. Peach thinks he’s hidden among the stuff on the cabinet by the window, but I saw him–and waited for him to see me! He found the whole thing very dull.

Still Life With Orange Cat

What’s an orange cat doing in my house? Mr. Peach, or Monsieur le Peche, was a kitty I fostered for a few months while his people determined whether the allergic reaction they were experiencing had anything to do with him. It did not, and he went back home shortly after this. You can read more about him in these links—and he’s also in the book I illustrated.

Please go away and let me nap!

Photos pulled “From the Archives” were taken by one or another digital camera of mine between 2002 and, well, yesterday, but usually they are older than that, and I had never had the chance to feature them. They’re a fun way to “introduce” other members of my feline family who came and went before I began blogging, and to illustrate my feline family in general from days gone by.
