Mewsette in Profile

Mewsette in profile.

Mewsette gazes dreamily out the window as the spring sun highlights each whisker and hair.

Did you ever notice how, in certain lights, whiskers have an iridescent glow? Both white and black do as well as the dark gray, but it’s most noticeable on black whiskers.

You can see a bit of Mewsette’s eye in profile. Looking at a cat’s eye from the side you see the clear area is very deep from front to back while the iris is a flat area behind this. I have read this was why cat’s eye marbles were named such even though the color swirls around in side them, because they mimic this clear area in the cat’s eye.

Mewsette has a somewhat rounded nose with just a little bit of a regal bump and very little chin. It’s part of her soft roundness.

Love all of that fur.


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’ll have to dust her off before I photograph her next time, don’t you think?
