I could have chosen photos of sunrise, or breakfast for the “morning” Photography Challenge, but we have a resident cat named Morgen (“morning” in German), and I thought I’d have plenty of morning photos of her invading my warm bed. And I have! Many of them were taken with a phone camera, because I was still in bed myself, and the phone was handy.
A typical morning routine is – I get up and give her breakfast, make mine and take it back to bed. Then she tries to get a warm spot, which may involve sitting on me if she can.
You may notice two photos are almost the same, apart from a brownish patch on her flank – the result of sitting much too close to a radiator on a frosty morning. I didn’t realise just how singed she was until she had groomed off all the burnt tips of guard hairs, revealing her pretty apricot undercoat! I guess she couldn’t tell how hot her fur was getting through her winter insulating coat. Oooops!
