That Wool Afghan…

three cats on afghan
All four cuddled on the wool afghan.

I admit it has been a little cold at night, and it was time to put the wool afghan at the foot of the bed, just in case we had a really cold night. But it’s as if they were waiting for me to get the afghan out of the closet so they could cuddle on it, and I’ve barely seen them in three days.

Jelly Bean, in front, isn’t sure it’s worth waking all the way up, but Mr. Sunshine on the left and Mewsette on the right are fully awake and no way are they moving. The black lump behind them is Giuseppe, who they’d actually been using as a pillow. It’s the only time he sleeps on to of the quilt, though he’ll no doubt be back under in a few days when the afghan gets old.

I had to touch up their eyes as best I could because I had to use the flash and they looked possessed otherwise.

Once the leaves fall from the tree out front I’ll have more light, but four black cats on a primarily black afghan will always be a challenge.

    They know where the most comfy spot in the house is — the one who loves and pets and feeds them!!! Mine does the same, as do all kitties — wise in the ways of the fur! 🙂

      They’re even cuter in real life. I can hardly stand it some days.

    What a wonderful pile of cats! They look so comfortable. I’m sure they are just warming it up for you.
