Daily Photo Reprise: Mimi, 2012

black cat at sunny window

It’s when I see Mimi like this, relaxed, quietly happy by a sunny window, breeze ruffling her ears, her delicate features so lovely with the lace curtain, that I deeply sense she and I are both having a moment of appreciation for her life here, indoors, spayed, well-fed; often after one of these moments she turns and looks right at me, aware we are sharing the same sentiment, as she did some time after I took this photo when I’d simply stood admiring her.

I love Mimi’s delicate little face, and now that she and I are girlfriends I get to study her tiny nose, her delicate profile and sparkling whiskers even more often.

I liked this photo so much I wanted to share it even more. I used it for one of my wood-mounted art pieces, which you can find in my Etsy shop.

    I like to look at my cat and just admire her beauty and her ability to enjoy the moment. She is not worried about the past or the future but enjoying the present.

      Lisa, that’s the best thing about them, they are such an inspiration.

    She is a lovely lady cat. How lovely that the two of you have a special bond. So heartwarming. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

      Janet, it took Mimi a few years to understand it wasn’t all about her kittens, and now, of course, it’s all about her!
