Oooh! Aaah!

black cat looking upward
Ooh! Aaah!

From July 4, 2011, Mr. Sunshine isn’t really watching fireworks, he’s watching a moth inside the swag lamp, but it’s cute to think so.

Actually all five black cats disappeared as the neighbors lit firecrackers now and then, and later Carnegie’s fireworks lit up the sky a distance away (on July 3). Kelly hid in the entertainment center, but Cookie, who is pretty deaf, stayed on her cabinet in the kitchen.

I have a bi-fold door to the basement, and a small rectangle cut out of one lower corner for them to access the basement. I walked into the kitchen after the fireworks were over and suddenly basement cats where flowing out of the hole in the door—all five of them came up one after another with big round eyes, ready to run back down at the slightest “bang”. I gave everyone treats and catnip.

  • I love this photo. Great angle.

    • Zora, it was quite a trick to position him against the darkened screen door instead of the sink full of dishes, but he was so raptly attentive to the moth I did finally get the shot!

  • Black cats = Basement cats How funny – just like the meme!

    • Vicki, it just worked out that way, but it is funny to see!

  • I would have loved to see a picture of them all pouring out of that cat door…MOL
