Mimi on Mimi’s Day

Mimi Speckled

Because today is Mimi’s Day, the day she joined my household, I’m featuring a photo of her.

Rather than a photo that shows her quiet delicate beauty, I chose one that reminds both her and me that she’s no longer an outdoor cat, battling the elements, birthing kittens and risking her life. She’s just a happy housecat, sleeping in the sun with that fool of a human who follows her around with a camera. I get the feeling she’s loving every moment of it.

It’s also the day her children joined my household, but they’ve had enough attention lately.
