Three-sided Cube: 2011

Three Cat Cube

How many black cats can fit in a cat cube?

Three, if Giuseppe sticks his butt out the back door!

Jelly Bean, down here in the lower left, was in there first, then his mom, Mimi, whose face you can see in the upper right of the opening, was cuddled with him.

Then Giuseppe decided he wanted to be in on the party too, and crawled in as far as he could and laid down, using JB as a pillow; you can see the back of Giuseppe’s head in the middle of the opening.

Poor Mimi had to sit up or be smothered by Giuseppe’s big hug.

This poor cube has only been here for six days and it’s taken a heck of a beating! When it isn’t full of big black cats, it’s being used as a big soccer ball as I find it all over the room, upside down, sideways, and yesterday I found Mr. Sunshine lying on top of it all flattened beneath him. We’ll see how long it can last with this type of treatment.

This was a challenging shot: I could barely get any distance between my lens and the cube, and three black cats meter pretty dark to begin with, then put them inside a red object and it was all I could do to get any detail at all. The flash lit up the cube but darkened the inside, so I had to use light streaming in from the window off to the side. Well worth the dozen shots it took to get one…

This cat cube was donated to my household by one of our tortie buddies who traveled to a certain book signing last April! Also visit The Conscious Cat to read about our the book signing, and if you have a tortie cat—I think many of you do—stop in and read ” ‘Tortitude’, the Unique Personality of Tortoiseshell Cats” and join in the discussion.


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 size the photos are nearly twice the dimension and 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.
