Two Great Minds

“Two Great Minds”

I’m reorganizing the bathroom as we put away all of Emeraude’s things and foods, although her comfy bed is still there by the tub, and will be for a while. I still sense her there. But her food bowls and memories of her on the windowsill reminded me of this little video I made from a series of photos I took of  the boys plotting to steal her food while she bathed on the windowsill. Don’t let them know I said this, but they were too scared to go in there while she was looking. Bean has the right idea: just ask. It’s nice to remember the open window and sunshine and summer breezes too.

. . . . . . .

My engineer and all-around fix-it cat and my charming and food-driven cat had a great idea when they discovered Emeraude had canned food in her room. I feed her a small amount of canned food at a time and I don’t like to close her in there. They are so polite that I can leave her door open and let her nip at her canned food at will, and they’ve never hopped in there and stolen it. But I caught this series of photos the other day that let me know it’s been on their mind!

I used the photos in the order I took them, and wrote the script according to the content of the photos. I was trying out a few new ways to make slideshow videos with narration. There are always minor things I’m unhappy about but it tells the story just fine, although you may need to turn up the sound a bit—I kind of overdid it with the whispering. You can watch it below, or click over to YouTube to watch.

And we’re still celebrating black cats!
