Misty Grey

She has things to do, like occupying sunbeams, drinking out of the bathroom sink, and being beautiful – on four legs, or three!

Lazy Sunbeam Sunday

Filed under: Uncategorized — ddmckenna at 11:14 pm on Sunday, August 31, 2014

After a killer week and a super busy Saturday, the whole household is chilling today. Misty is occupying sunbeams while she waits for the rabbits I’ve got in the crockpot to be done. We humans had breakfast sandwiches for dinner made on an electric griddle while watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Now I think I’ll finish some artwork I’ve been working on while I watch a few episodes of Madmen.

Here’s my sweet little sunbeam girl:


I love how the light shines through her eyes.


Sprawled with her one little front paw sticking out. 🙂



What a face. I think the mottling on her little nose is very cute. But from photos I see that it was all grey when she was a kitten. I wonder how she got the pink spots – I just remember noticing them one day.  I hope they’re not because of injuries or something.  She did get into a lot when she was young – I remember her hopping up on the stove once right after I took a pan off the burner. She leaped off again really fast. I checked her feet for burns but I couldn’t even find any singed fur. Maybe sometime later she stuck her nose somewhere it didn’t belong. I could picture her doing that. I suspect that she’s used up more of her nine lives than what the cancer ordeal used up. Most in-and-outdoor cats get into trouble we never find out about, I’m sure.

“Occupying sunbeams”…you certainly seemed to have mastered that!

Such a sweet update on a very sweet kitty who takes really sweet pictures!

Misty, you and your humans really know how to make the best out of a relaxing blissful Sunday.

So glad to see you so happy and content. Keep these great updates coming, okay? Maybe your mom will even share pictures of some of her artwork.

Misty, I’m gonna take notes and go lounge today!

As for the pink spots; from what I read, animals normally lose a bit of pigmentation in their nose as they age. I would mention it during a routine vet visit but I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about as no other symptoms are present.
