Kelly Sleeping in the Cat Library

When Kelly sleeps, sometimes she just looks like a pile of legs.

The Cat Library was the place to be for a while there, then everyone got tired of it. It was always one of Kelly’s favorite places, though, and even though the slightly uneven heights of books may not seem to be comfortable, Kelly conforms her slender body to fit into each nook and cranny.

I had no idea setting up my cat book library in this way would make such a photogenic setting.

It was truly a trick to not get myself in this photograph as well, considering there’s a large mirror behind Kelly. Or perhaps I just don’t show up in mirrors. Ask my kitties about that.

      I’m glad I actually did see myself in the first few photos I took!

    She looks like she could be snoring…… so comfortable.

      She really does snore, and sometimes she gets so relaxed she rolls off of what she’s sleeping on.

    I love this photo! It reminds me of Charles Wysocki’s Frederick the Literate, which is hanging in my bedroom!

      Wysocki was one of my influences for working with detail–I know that print! Long ago I decided instead of purchasing one, I’d paint my own. The rest is history.
