Unusual Sights

I’ve got three unusual sights for you today. Or rather, one unusual sight at three different zoom levels to highlight the oddities.

First, admire this peaceful scene:
That’s right. Five cats, one bed. That’s unusual in itself, but when you consider that nobody is attacking anyone else–not even glaring at anyone else–it moves from “unusual” to “practically unique:.

Now, turn your attention to the lower right corner:
Rhubarb and Yuki aren’t exactly the best of friends. They don’t particularly fight, but Rhubarb generally keeps a wary distance between them. For him to actually play pillow is highly unusual. (Note, by the way, the modified Rhubarbasana pose. Still too tight a curl for my back, but might be useful for beginners.)

Finally, take a close look at Mr. Yuki.
Yes, that white thing really is a whisker, and yes, it does have a ninety degree change of direction. Actually, it’s even more convoluted than it seems in this shot: when seen from the front, it appears to wander off into a previously-unknown dimension–call it Whiskerspace. It’s his only white feature (his ear, lip, and other parts that appear white in this photo are actually black; they’re just reflecting the camera flash). Positively unique!

  1. The pillow is hilarious. Sometimes my eyelashes do what Yuki’s whisker is doing and poke me in the eye. Anais used to have all black whiskers, but more and more of them are turning white as she ages.

    • Somehow I suspect that, even in Japan, the market for cat butt pillows is small…

      And just for the record, Yuki’s black whiskers are all long and straight. It’s only the one white one that’s crazed enough to disappear into Whiskerspace.
