From the Archives: Waves of Cats, 2009

Waves of cats.

From November 28, 2009…

Giuseppe, Mimi and Bean fit together atop a hand-knitted shawl, their ears and backs in graceful ever-increasing curves suggesting waves, suggested especially by the blue and green stripes in the shawl.

I’d set on the table while digging through the coat closet. Mind you, I was digging through the coat closet because some clever feline had apparently been climbing the coats and shawls and sleeping on the shoulders of my winter coats and everything in there was a mess. It certainly wasn’t Peaches or Kelly or Cookie, and that narrowed the suspects down to a few black cats I know. Yet even in their penitence (I’d like to think) they are graceful and artfully inspiring.

I think I’ll have another tomorrow, since we did the same thing the following day.

This may look a little more like waves…

      Cat, it was just something I saw at a glance, and it stayed when I looked fully at it. Hope no one thinks I’m nuts!

    I have the coat, shawl and scarf climbers here too. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to have clothing without claw marks, rips, tears and cat hair on it. They settle up on a high shelf, just out of reach and do this regularly when they sense that they may have an appointment to visit the vets office for shots or checkups. They can open any closet door in the house and if I try to make it off limits, they just get more interested in finding out how to make a clever break- in. And they know I still love them unconditionally – they taught me about that!

      Susan, it’s funny to try to figure out why they’d work so hard when they don’t have to. This closet door suddenly didn’t close all the way.
