Vintage Photos: Inseparable Cookie and Sophie, 1997, 2002, 2005
Cookie and Sophie sit side by side at the basement door, these two BFFs and my guardian kitties. You would rarely see one without the other either right next to each other or very near, often cuddled together. The two would often sit here, together, in the summer when I had the interior door open. They are watching me in this photo from 1997, but they also enjoyed watching all that happened in our little garden and out into the yard from the ground level of this door. They did this so often that when I replaced the concrete step at this basement door, I wrote their names in the concrete. I treasure this photo, and until I began reviewing my boxes of photos a few years ago I didnât even realize I had it.
More memories than I can share are wrapped up in this photo and the ones with it on the same roll of film from 1997-1998, but I will add that this was my first summer in the garden without Kublai as he had died the previous September 1996; Kelly and Namir joined me in October 1997 and later in this roll of prints are the photos of the first time Kelly and Namir came down the stairs to join us, in spring 1998. Still later are photos of Moses rolling around on my bed, finally looking confident and playful at about age 10. Apparently, losing Kublai and Allegro, I wasnât taking as many photos, which I think was correct, but I did capture the essentials.
Other photos are from 2002, and then 2005 in the kitchen. Don't ever worry about having too many photos of your cats. .
