Basement Cats Have Come for My SoulPosted: June 26, 2011
I always knew the day would come. You can’t live with five black cats and not know there is a reason they’ve chosen you. Don’t they look a little somber? At least their little mom was not involved in the action.
Mimi was there, just on a different table top, and not at all concerned with what her children were doing.
Actually, they’ve come to observe me working, again. They are on the worktable/drafting table in the corner of my newly restored/renovated/cleaned/organized studio, which I have apparently place there with no obstructions for their benefit. In fact, I’ve carried out the entire month-long activity for their amusement and benefit. I’m glad I could be of service to them.
This room was always the “spare cat room” until it just got too crowded, the reason for the newness; in fact, I carried the Big Four and Mimi into this room in a box almost four years ago, and the drafting table where I had their big cage was in the same place it is now. Perhaps they remember it, but I doubt that. I think that’s just my human sentimentality!
I was a disappointed the photo was somewhat blurry, so I adjusted contrast, enhanced colors, ran it through a few fun filters in Photoshop and came up with something that used the soft edges and luridly described the situation. Here’s another take on it, red violet lighting to enhance the weirdness of the situation.
If you enjoy the articles, photos and artwork you find on The Creative Cat, please nominate me in the Petties 2011, Dogtime’s Pet Blog Awards. You can nominate for more than one category, but The Creative Cat seems to fit in the Best Designed Blog because there is no life without images, all those photos and artwork and visual ideas I love to share. You could also nominate me for Best Blog Post if there is a particular blog post you find memorable. I would send any award money to FosterCat for all they do in finding foster homes and permanent homes for cats who have no other chance. Here is the information you need for nomination:
