Hakuna and Matata relax on the sunroom loveseat.
Given that Valentine’s Day is hard upon us, I recalled this photograph of Hakuna and Matata side-by-side, each of them forming a Kitty-Heart against the cushions.
It’s a bittersweet thing, to look at this picture: a reminder that Matata is no longer with us. But that’s love, isn’t it? Bittersweet... with the sweet far outweighing the bitter, tasting all the better owing to the contrast.
Update: Friday Ark #282 is afloat at the Modulator. If you’re still hankerin’ for a heap of Kitty-Love, swing by Meowsings of an Opinionated Pussycat Sunday evening, where Nikita can fix you up with more cat-related linkage as he hosts Carnival of the Cats #309.
Update 2: CotC #309 is up.
