Waiting at the Window

Waiting at the Window

What a welcome sight to come home to! Mewsette, Jelly Bean and Giuseppe watched as I walked down the street from photographing the new moon; I could see their silhouettes as I came down the hill with my camera.

But photograph three black cats in the window of a darkened room with one bright light in the center of the photo to throw off all the levels, that’s enough to test both me and my camera. I had to use my flash, which I rarely do, especially with the black cats, but it was worth it for this.

Darn it, though, every time I wash the windows because I know I’m going to come home to see at least one of them in the window and want to photograph them (and birds and other outdoor things from inside), it rains or snows again and the windows are covered with water spots.

How much are those kitties in the window? Priceless!


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.

    your cats are quite a hoot!

  • That picture is just amazing and they sure are priceless. If you hadn’t told us about the water spots, we would have never known. Gosh I like that picture. And they all almost have the exact same expression. Great stuff.

  • WOW!! Too bad Mr. Sunshine wasn’t there, though. Amazing picture.

    • I looked for him inside, but he’s not a window sitter. Mewsette is the evening block watch kitty, JB is the afternoon kitty, but they wanted dinner, and Giuseppe didn’t want to be left out of whatever was going on.
