Well, what do you know! I’ve just been informed that today is National Cat Day. That’s all the excuse I need to share this photo of a friend’s kitten trying on her Halloween attire. I should mention that the friend happens to be an Egyptologist. Can you guess what the little one is meant to be? Take a good look at her headdress. Pharoah! 🙂

According to Kiya’s owner, DL, she selected the rug before the kitten selected her. Clearly this relationship was meant to be. 🙂

I almost titled this post, the sleeping giant wakes. But Kiki isn’t a giant. She’s a little bit of a thing, small enough to roll up and fit into a handbag. As I visit with my friend, she’ll sneak into my room at night and I wake in the morning to find either her little rump snuggled against my neck or her sea green eyes studying my face. She’s Barnaby’s younger partner in crime in this household.

I’ve been trying to adequately photograph her for days. She like her partner moves to fast for me. So finally I decided to wait until she woke up. Okay, okay, okay, I admit it. I “encouraged” her to wake up once I was properly positioned.

I don’t think she was too pleased in the moment. But I think she’ll forgive me. 😉
