Puzzle Cats

Puzzle cats, because they fit together like puzzle pieces even if one is under the bedspread.

All tucked in with each other, Mimi and her children snoozed on the bed in the early afternoon. From the top at 12:00 is Mimi, at about 4:00 is Mewsette, at 6:00 is Mr. Sunshine and at about the 10:00 position is Jelly Bean. The lump under the bedspread at the very bottom is Giuseppe being used as a pillow by Mr. Sunshine.

Below…”What are you looking at? We are going to finish our nap.” The three siblings, four if you count Giuseppe under the bedspread, are never so close in personality as when they awaken from a nap together—they’ll often sit up and look at me in nearly the same position, ears and eyes and heads all angled the same, or very nearly so. Mama Mimi is not in step with her children, and that is okay for the matriarch of the family. But they did get up after this and I finally managed to make the bed.

They kind of remind me of meerkats or baby possums all lined up on their mother.

The Systematic Destruction of My Bed

It started out innocently enough with Mimi, Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine.

I made my bed today, but what’s the point some days? Every time I went upstairs my bed was a little worse for the wear and had one more cat on it. But who could resist? I made sure I had the camera with me each time.

Then JB joined and there were four, though someone had burrowed under the quilt, then left.

Then Giuseppe joined, but crawled up under the quilt.

I awakened them a little later. Giuseppe crawled out from under the quilt. Look at all those ears!

The final arrangement, hard to tell but things are piled up all over.

Occupy The Bed

Occupy the Bed

Well, they peacefully camp out there and they refuse to leave, fighting for their rights in this house, especially the right to the bed whenever they want it and in a way that is comfortable for them.

I really prefer to see my bed made up neatly, really I do, but there is always at least one cat who disagrees and often all of them do, and they occupy my bed, and I lose.

Well, they are the 87.5%.

A Sunny Afternoon Spot

Sleepy in the Sun

I wondered why I was alone at my desk. I went upstairs, and look what I found on my bed. What is my company compared to a quiet, sunny spot on a soft bed in the afternoon?

I just melt when I see them all together in tranquil settings like this. They may awaken and look at me with sleepy expressions, a little purr, a little bath for one another, then go back to sleep. They love each other so much, and I deeply appreciate their bonds with each other, their fusion as a group.

I do my best to join their warm little world, storing up information for a future painting or poem. What was the color of the sun on the bedspread? Who had the most mahogany in their fur? Didn’t the green leaves from the maple tree reflect into the shadowed areas of the white bedspread? Was the room warm? Could we hear the birds? Was there a whiff of lilacs?

This is only four; Giuseppe was in the cat cube, which yesterday was in the kitchen.
