Interlocking Kitties

Interlocking Kitties

Giuseppe and Jelly Bean perform an interesting mid-nap conjoinment of paws and faces and tails. It’s another one of their gratuitous displays of brotherly sweetness that makes my day go by in an instant.


Unless I have linked the photo to something else, which is rare with daily photos, you can click the photo to see a larger version. I save them at 1000 pixels maximum dimension, and at that size the photos are nearly twice the dimension and you can see more detail in many of the photos I post. Please remember if you download or share, my name and the link back to the original photo should always appear with it.

    I know that you named some of the Fantastic Four after characters in an Opera, but how did Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine get their names?

      Laurie, they were named after the principal roles in La Boheme, which translates to “The Bohemians”, my favorite opera which I’d recently seen and because Mimi, the lead role, was an innocent but still a little loose.

      Jelly Bean was Rodolfo, the male lead, but as a kitten he was just too cute to be a seducer–he was “The Little Guy” and “Guy”, but he needed a really cute name for his cuteness and his nose looked like a jelly bean.

      Mr. Sunshine was Marcello, the male secondary, and he is very much like the Marcello in the version I saw but one day when he was about four weeks old he looked at me and I saw Lucy’s eyes–she was the kitty from an earlier litter who I’d lost to FIP and is the reason they came to me. I also caught myself singing “You Are My Sunshine” to him, which I had done all the time for Lucy, so he became “my little Sunshine”.

      Here’s the article with a little more information:

      Thanks for asking, you can tell I love to tell the story!
