My Favorite Photo
This is Malkav (and Detective Pusheen, Pusheenicorn, Pusheenasaurus, and Mersheen. I may have a Pusheen problem). I found him in 2011 when we moved to a new apartment, and hear tiny meows coming from underneath the stairs. Sure enough we found a litter of four 6ish week old kittens. Three of them went to the SPCA, and we kept this massive, sweet, silly boy. He was the bravest kitten, if not the smartest. While the others ran away, he would hang back and hiss at us. I took this picture a few months before we lost him to a pulmonary embolism, and it was the last one I ever took of him. So that’s part of the reason it’s a photo I love. It’s also really just perfect. He’s lined up with the Pusheens so well, with similar positioning and everything. This is also the only time he ever did this (as far as I know). Our couch has moving parts, so he was never up there. It looks like I was doing something and had stuff on the couch? So maybe that’s why. I don’t remember. As photos go, it’s perfect. This is how I want to remember him: hanging out in the Pusheen parade, being silly, and so sweet, and making my day better.
