Holidays Are Exhausting


Hi Pals,

Whew!  Holidays sure are exhausting!    I'm all worn out and just want to lay on my perch in the sunpuddles forever!  

We do have a  mystery to solve however.    Take a look at my perch and belly.  Both look like they are dirty - really dirty!   My belly is snow white not dirty..

M was horrified that I wanted to post the picture, but that's how i'm feeling today.    I promise my belly and perch are not dirty at all.   Is it a play on light with the camera or what?   M always hates taking pictgures into a window.   But this is one of my favorite spots because it's the only spot where the sun comes in thru the window.    I love my cat tree too, but that is not in a sunny window except late in the day in the summer.  So what exactly is going on?  It's a mystery!  I'm not giving up my favorite spot because I look dirty!  (There M, I have put my paw down.)

Oh Mario, you do look comfy there. It looks like the perfect spot. We think your belly looks perfect. You all have a most wonderful day.

I love seeing that belly and I know personally well that you are always spiffy and well bathed and groomed. Anyone who thinks differently will be soundly thrashed by me. XXOO

Your belly looks great, Mario! I wouldn't have noticed at all quite honestly. I'm always amazed how different Annie can look picture to picture just because of the lighting.

Your perch is so awesome. You have a wonderful window!

No worries, Mario! We don't think that you have a dirty tummy. Honest!!!

Enjoy those sunpuddles. They've become pretty rare over here!

Don't you worry! We know about "shadows" - they can make stuff look darker than it REALLY is so I'm SURE your tummy AND your perch are just "in the shadows" !!!!

Rest easy - that sun puddle looks great.....

Hugs, Angel Sammy

I don't think it looks dirty - it just looks like a shadow.

You look purrfect Mario! Good for you for putting your paw down!

What a wonderful location for a perch. Your belly looks great, but if your mom wants to see if she can make it appear as white as it is, have her try to force the camera flash "ON". That may help balance out all the light that's coming in from the window.

Mario, we think you look fine. The back lighting from the window puts shadows on your belly and perch. Nothing to worry about. We wouldn't even have questioned it, had you not said something. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We love your perch, Mario. And you look pretty happy there all sprawled out. We're sure that the "dirtiness" is just the lighting.

Cathy Keisha said...

They are known as shadows. Your belly is in a shadow. Also the photo is backlit which means the sun and light is behind you. I'm doing a FB Photo Challenge and Backlight is this week's challenge.

Your belly looks just purrfect.

It's just the shadows :) You look very comfy and that is what counts Mario. Have a great week my friend!
