Not Photoshopped

Originally uploaded by Kitty LaRoux.

Top: Memphis, who you all know and love.
Bottom: Grapple, arguably Memphis' arch-nemesis.

Since we moved into BP:LE, Memphis and Grapple have "tolerated" each other, if by "tolerate" you mean "studiously ignore each other for 22 hours/day and spend the other two, preferably when the humans are sleeping, being generally pissy to each other and erupting in loud hissy (albeit harmless) scraps". (For the record: Memphis is usually the instigator.) Grap's cat-mom (aka my roommate) has been away since the beginning of the month and I've been gradually encouraging the two of them to be in the same vicinity so that they can both have pets and such.

This morning as I was getting ready for work, Memphis was sleeping on my bed and Grap came in the room. He hopped up on the bed and I expected the fur to fly, but Memphy barely opened an eye. I'm just glad my camera was handy, because I really love this picture.

Love the contrast. Great photo! I actually thought they were two different pictures at first. And I love that Memphis is on the happily decorated blanket, and his arch-nemesis is on the more ominous looking dark blanket!
