Schooner and Pumpkin Bask After Breakfast
Schooner and Pumpkin were enjoying an after-breakfast sunning by the second-floor slider this morning when I decided to do some soul-capturing. Below, my picks of the litter. We'll start with Schooner, who had the best spot, snug in the sunshine next to the hot air floor vent. Of course, when he spotted me he had to start clowning for the camera. When this didn't produce the desired belly rub, he ratcheted up the cuteness. Meanwhile, Pumpkin humbly waited for his turn to be noticed. Pumpkin's massively affectionate and pathetically grateful for attention but, other than chirping hopefully whenever he sees me, doesn't push things the way Schooner does. So he was content to hold his pose while I zoomed in closer. And closer. While Schooner, bereft of attention for the moment, pondered the cruelties of his hardhearted human. Then they got up and swarmed me, ending the photo session.
