Kelly’s Sunbath

Kelly is inspired by the warm evening sun to have a bath. Everything inspires Kelly to have a bath! I was waiting for her to sit up so the sun could highlight her outline, imagining how lovely that would look on her slender and graceful frame, light shining through her ears, perhaps catching her whiskers…

But Kelly had other ideas and sitting for a photo was not one of them since she never stopped bathing no matter what I did. Apparently that front paw, and the other front paw, and her face, and her shoulders were all critically soiled and needed to be cleaned, deeply and without pause. The first time I called out her name and waved a toy she looked at me quickly, then not again. Perhaps her expression below might give a bit of enlightenment about how Kelly feels about being interrupted at her bath.

  • I don’t mean to poke fun at you, dear little Kelly, for I know it is a serious business for you, but your exasperated expression made me giggle!

    • I am a shy girl but I get my point across! My mom has to learn some manners.

    • Thank you Susan! I’m glad I have a place to share them, blogging is truly a wonderful thing for that.
