Ernie looking at mirror leaning against the wall

Mirror mirror
leaning on the wall…
Who’s the
most handsome
cat of all?

Note from the mom: I left this mirror leaning against the wall with the intention of hanging it. One day, I caught Ernie looking at it. He sat there for several minutes staring intently. I’m not sure if he knew that was him he was seeing or if he thought it was another cat. What do you think?

  1. Bet he is thinking “what a good looking cat”
    You are a good looking car Ernie!!!

  2. Ernie, the world couldn’t handle two Ernies!
    It would melt the timeline vortex, or something…

  3. ROTFL @ the Eastside Cats comment! πŸ˜€

    Ernie, you definitely are the most handsome mancat in the mirror.

  4. I think he was checking out his handsomeness.

    Have a fabulous day. Scritches to the kitties. β™₯

  5. You are by far the most handsome of all. πŸ™‚ XO

  6. Recognizing yourself in a mirror is a sign of self awareness. I think Ernie has it.

  7. What a gorgeous kitty, no wonder you can’t stop gazing at yourself Ernie! MOL!

  8. Whenever one of the Kitties Blue looks in the mirror, I wonder the same thing. I have always thought if I held them up and they recognized it was me in the mirror, they would realize they were the cat. But I am not even sure that is the case. Wish they could talk.

  10. You are the most handsome, Ernie! Mirror cat hasn’t got a patch on you!

  11. Awww that’s too cute! He was definitely admiring himself, as he should.

  12. I think Ernie knew the handsome boy was him.

  16. We kitties are weird with mirrors….some of us LOVE to play with the other kitty and some of us could care less, as in ME. Who knows, watch and wait, maybe you have a new playmate, Ernie. Or maybe you want to tear its throat out for being in your space, haha.

  17. Hmmm are all my whiskers in place??


    I too wish we could sense what they are thinking. I once found a large picture in a book of a meezer like Minko, and he got right up and had to smell it to make sure it was not going to cause trouble or something. He didn’t hiss, just VERY curious.

  18. I think he took his time analyzing that black cat he saw…..”is it me?? or is it friend? or maybe foe?” But in the end he winked and realized it was HIM! Mirrors are just a little confusing for us. My Mom says she’s confused when SHE looks in a mirror because she didn’t remember getting so old !!!

    Hugs, Teddy

  19. I think he never realized how handsome he was.

  20. TBT: None of The Mews have ever quite caught on to their image in a mirror.

  21. That’s so cute! I’m sure the mirror answered correctly, right?

  22. Oh how funny…so many things came to my mind when you asked what we thought.
    1. oh no I have bed head
    2. stranger danger
    3. Well hello Ernie you are a handsome man cat
    Cute photo
    Hugs cecilia

  23. You are of course.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. My best to your mom. β™₯

  24. that intense glare tells me he thinks he was looking at very handsome interloper cat!

  25. I think he was impurressed about his own handsomeness πŸ˜€ Pawkisses from Heaven from me and my Granny and Little Peachy and Stippie try to send one too πŸ˜€ β™₯

  26. We think Ernie is checking himself out. If he thought it was another cat, he might be jealous because it’s so handsome. πŸ™‚

    Mom Sue: I always find it interesting that some cats react to their reflection in the mirror, while others either don’t notice or don’t care one whit!

  27. That’s the famous cat in the mirror, Ernie.
