Big and Little Sisters: From A Year Ago

Big and Little Sisters

I knew this one was coming, and have to admit, when I first started posting images from last year and Cookie grew gravely ill around Christmas, I was hoping at the time we would make it to this date so I could post this photo. Cookie really turned around though she’s still a little wobbly and she’s not climbing into pots and pans at the moment, but she’s still with me, and Mewsette still looks over her. Concerning the ages, below, remember this was last year!

Cookie, 18, Mewsette, 3, a big sister who is little, and a little sister who is big.

Mousse keeps careful watch over Cookie, though Cookie may not know, sleeping deeply like the little old lady she is. Just as the younger cats took care of Peaches, so they keep after Cookie, though Mewsette is the most persistent.

Like Peaches before her, Cookie feels it’s just her due as the grande dame of the household.

And like Cookie before them all, who was vigilant with her senior brothers and sisters.

Copy Cats

Mewsette continues her adoration of Cookie and her daily practice as understudy to her little big sister.

Mewsette even dares to take a few grooming licks at Cookie as a way of showing she cares. Surprisingly, Cookie really doesn’t mind this, though she will occasionally scowl and growl, but she never lifts a paw. Once, recently, she even asked for Cookie’s blessing, and while Cookie usually pointedly ignores Mewsette’s overtures (hard to do, Mewsette is large and persistent), this time she gave in.

Personally, I like to see Mewsette taking care of Cookie. I’m glad to know that Mewsette’s big, gentle, quiet presence is keeping watch over my guardian kitty while she sleeps.

Cookie’s Blessing

Mewsette requests a blessing.

Mewsette approached Cookie as she was at her bath today, with her head respectfully bowed. Normally Cookie ignores her and sometimes gives her a good swat, but today she reached out and pulled Mewsette’s face close to hers and briefly licked Mewsette’s forehead and ear. Mewsette’s existence is now justified.

Cookie obliges.

Cookie is 19, Mewsette 4, a big sister who is little, and a little sister who is big. Mousse often makes these overtures toward Cookie and, often, she will simply be near Cookie. Cookie doesn’t think she needs a guardian but likes Mewsette’s company.

Like Peaches before her, Cookie feels it’s just her due as the grande dame of the household.

Like Cookie before them all, Mewsette is simply being vigilant with her senior brothers and sisters.

Here’s another image of Cookie with Mewsette, who keeps watch as Cookie sleeps.
