Opera and Orange Marmalade sitting in a tree....

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!

Phantom and Opera sitting side by side... I LOVE it!
Orange Marmalade looks quite content up in the tree :) I've seen Leo in our Oak Tree once, but he prefers laying on the garden shed roof!

What cuties :) I love the stories behind their names. We had a brother and sister pair named Bonnie & Clyde years ago. They always knew how to get into trouble!

What climbing kitties! I'd forgotten about Phantom and Opera, but reading their story again reminded me that you've mentioned it before. They're such cuties and those are great names!

Cats are just the best! I love all your pictures. Did you know that almost all orange cats are male? Amazing that he really likes hanging out in trees! Good pictures.
