I Thought I’d Make the Bed

Thought I'd make the bed.

Every day it’s a race to get upstairs before they do so I can flip up the sheet and quilt and cover the pillows. Why? I just like it that way.

But too bad for me in a house full of cats who need their beauty sleep.

And then what else is a dark and cold October afternoon good for? I think it’s great for focusing on a big project and working all day. Who am I to question their choice of activities?

Here you see all four of Mimi’s Children with Cookie: Giuseppe, Cookie, Mewsette in a row, and Mr. Sunshine closer to the camera. You can’t see, but he is very present in the lump under the covers next to Mr. Sunshine, is Jelly Bean. Usually it’s Giuseppe under the covers, but not so this afternoon.

Here’s another with all four of Mimi’s Children much younger as Cookie shows ’em how to play with a catnip mouse. I know one of them is out of the photo, but this is the three boys, or the “three stooges” from January 2009.

Cookie shows the three stooges and Mewsette how to properly play with a mousie.

    Such an interesting post! I enjoyed it a lot. I always find it very spirit lifting to see so many cats in one place.

    Bernadette, this is such a fine post. You put so much vitality and heart into the “ordinary” events in life.
