Listening to Mom

two black cats in sun

Giuseppe attentively listens to Mimi.

Giuseppe is resting but attentive when he and Mimi were resting together in the sun on the landing. I know they were communicating very deeply, and Giuseppe’s golden eyes were glowing as he calmly listened. Was she telling stories of life on the streets? Telling him about his daddy cat? Perhaps giving him tips on how to further woo Mademoiselle Daisy Emerald Marguerite? Perhaps the relative flavor of chipmunk versus field mouse?

Not for me to know, I suppose, silly human that I am, outnumbered and outwitted daily by the wisdom of cats.

So many lovely photos today I had a truly difficult time choosing. I think I’ll cheat and use a few others on other days.

And unless I have linked the photo to something else, which is rare with daily photos, you can click the photo to see a larger version. I save them at 1000 pixels maximum dimension, and at that level you can see more detail in many of the photos I post. Please remember if you download or share, my name and the link back to the original photo should always appear with it.


To see more daily photos go to “Daily Images” in the menu and choose “All Photos” or any other category.

    Thanks for that info. about clicking on the photo and seeing it larger. I’ll probably do that every time now!

    Love today’s intimate photo!

      Pam, I’m glad I mentioned it. That’s been one of my frustrations with this particular template, that the images just aren’t large enough. It never occurred to me to mention that except that I wanted everyone to see the details in Giuseppe’s face, but now I’m going to add it to every photo, at the bottom.

    No doubt that Angus and Donal would have benefited from more time with Mimi. Instead they landed here and learned the Art of War from Molly and thievery from Callie; she could likely have taught Oliver Twist’s Fagin a thing or two… luckily she never tried to open the refrigerator door (she’d have had THAT move mastered if she’d seen Kublai do it once).

      Amby, I’m sure the boys turned out just fine, even with those bad influences! I’m totally glad no one picked up the refrigerator door trick from Kublai though, no need to pass that talent down the line.
