Though these photos may look antique and sepia-toned, they are neither. My cats are perfect models and knew to pose in the bright yellow morning sun in front of my round antique mirror and the narrow casement window with the lace curtain. I applied a few Photoshop filters to the original photos to make them consistent in tone and style. On the back is the story of the photo.

Mewsette in the Mirror
Mewsette settles here every day after breakfast, quietly reflecting in the sun, a space of beauty in the brilliant yellow morning light, in the old cream lace curtain, the very old and slightly clouded, pitted mirror in its round antique gold frame, the time-worn wood of the wardrobe, and contemplative Mewsette, soft and rounded in her thoughts.
Mimi in the Mirror
Mimi, pensive at the morning window, reflected in the mirror, reflecting. The mirror is very old and slightly clouded, pitted here and there; I intentionally blurred the reflection, Mimi softened, the window and curtain rippled by the old glass, the mirror is real, but what is in it is memory, influenced by the medium itself. I’m sure rescued Mimi has many memories to reflect upon in the warm sun of a spring morning.
Giuseppe watches the yard, Jelly Bean soaks in the sun at the upstairs window facing east. Sunny early spring mornings are intoxicating for all of us. We all pause when we find ourselves in a sunny spot and simply appreciate the gift of the sun’s warmth and the promise of more beautiful days to come. The rounded mirror in the background brings to mind the rising of the sun over the horizon.
Don’t You Wonder What They Think
I know their thoughts are filled with beauty, to countenance an expression such as that. Mewsette has always been the dreamy member of the family, kind of like me; we can be together for long periods of time, just looking out the window, or watching shadows move across the floor.
