The Grandkitties

Rebecca’s mom requested pictures of the “grandkitties” so here are snapshots from last night. These are not the best pics but we do what we can on short notice! All three were snuggled up next to Rebecca–one on her lap and the other two right next to her on the sofa. Dale was on the other end of the sofa and received no love at all.

Sidney Poitier requires a flash photo! And he was not amused. But he purred anyway because he’s just a good sport in general. He has a tendency to rush the camera whenever he sees it. I think it has something to do with flash trauma.

Young Monty Clift is especially photogenic–he really does always look directly into the camera and puts on an air of quiet dignity that is rare in a one-year-old! His quiet dignity is only disturbed by the sprawl of new Ikea purchases on the table behind him.


Bela Lugosi is a bit camera shy. He doesn’t really enjoy having his picture taken (he had gained a lot of weight but is slimming down again thanks to Monty chasing him around the house at all hours of the day and night). He always looks slightly perturbed in photos, as if we’ve just bothered him to be frivolous while he was in the midst of a very important nap or bank statement or something.
