Vesper, my daughter’s Maine Coon cat, is right at home on our Norwegian sweaters draped over a chair. As if he isn’t warm enough, he snuggles in the luscious warm wool. It makes me want to take a nap…

I love the sepia tones (naturally from Vesper, the couch and evening lamplight) in contrast with the colorful Freesia flowers in the background.

Taken on a cold, fall evening west of Victor, Montana USA in our home. We had a roaring fire going in our wood stove as we were getting out winter clothes and doing the seasonal closet switch and cleaning. Of course Vesper was keeping a close eye on us and his favorite garments.

    Lovely light!! Gorgeous cat!! I have some of those sweaters, but no cat.

  • Thanks Kay. Jack and I have two cats. Then my daughter graduated from college, moved to Hong Kong and needed me to take her Maine Coon, Vesper. I love him like crazy, but if you need a cat….three cats and litter boxes are tough to keep up with! Just kidding. He reminds me of Jessa and I could never let him go.

    He looks as if he’s protecting your jumpers – “Nobody touch these, they belong to my people.!”… Lovely cosy-looking image!! :)

  • Yes, I think he is protecting them. Thank you.
