The Window Cat

Now that the colder weather is setting in, I thought I'd dig out this photograph that just epitomizes summer for me.

I wake in the morning, feeling the warmth and hearing the birdsong of a new summer day. As I lie in bed my cat finds the prime spot for sunshine, and the strength of the light heightens the definition of his shadow. He sits there, soaking up the heat, and I lie there watching his shadow. His ears flick when he spots a bird, and once in a while he'll lick his paws, but other than that we are a decadently lazy pair.
