In the Cat Who books by Lillian Braun, the photographer (Bushy) is determined that he is going to gets pictures of Quilleran’s two siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum. They keep getting into wonderfully photogenic poses until he brings out the camera at which point they promptly do things like start to wash up their nether regions. He is determined to someday succeed in photographing them.
Lately our two rascals have taken to hopping into one of our bathtubs to wash themselves up. I would love to get a picture (or even better a video) of them doing so but they continue to either
- do so when I don’t bring my cell phone (i.e. camera) into the bathroom
- not do so whenever I do bring it in.
Last night, after missing yet another opportunity to get the picture, I gave up and went out into the living room to clean the litter mats. Night followed me and before I could get to the mats, promptly went over and sat down on one of them. She just sat there looking at me …
No, she really is not a demon cat. Jamey just had the flash on when he took her picture. (Does make for a great picture of her at Halloween though.)
So how do things stand now?
So what am I grateful for today? Two cats who make sure our life never gets boring.
