First, I saw Marmalade in the tree...
which isn't that unusual since he loves hanging over the tree limbs...
Then I looked up and up and up some more
and there was Opera waaay high in the tree.
Tushie shot!! Just can't help myself :)
So, whacho wanna do now, Marmie?
I dunno, Opera, whacho wanna do?
(Intelligent cat conversation)
I wanna get down 'cause I saw those hoomans put our supper out!
Yum! I'm heading for the supper bowl too!
Made it! Hurry up, Marmie!
Made it too, Opera!
But I'll have to rethink this jumping thing...
Of course both Opera and Marmalade met up at the supper bowl. They know what's good for them!
I thought you might be interested in how Opera and Marmalade got their names...
Marmalade is really Orange Marmalade and Marmie for short. Not a really he-man name for a boy kitty but that's what he looked like when he was a little tyke. Turned out he's a bit of the scaredy cat and apparently thinks he's safe in the trees... thus we are constantly spotting his tail and tushie hanging over a limb!
Opera has her own story -- she has a twin sister named Phantom! They each have the "Phantom of the Opera" mask on one side of their face. Phantom has more white on her chest and back (therefore, she is Phantom) and Opera has more black and brown on her back reminiscent of The Phantom's cloak if you squint your eyes and hold your mouth just right!
Phantom on the left and Opera on the right!
I'm so glad I got this shot -- they are just too cute sitting together!
