A Window for Sharing

Two different days..but the same two cats who love the smell of fresh air and the eye candy of various squirrels who dare run through our yard. Normally Sebastian displaces Angel at the window but in the first shot Angel stands his ground and keeps his paws clearly planted on the window sill.  In the second shot you can see Sebastian has found something of interest and shortly after, will jump right onto the sill behind Angel and start invading his purr-sonal space!

In case anyone is wondering why the outside of the window is violet..well, it isn't intended to be part of the standard colours of our house.  Several years ago a friend gave us some shocking purple paint, almost an ultraviolet, and definitely not in keeping with the colours you would see on the rest of the houses on our street. So we painted our back windows on the main floor to see how the color looked, and being on a roll, we popped around to the front of the house and painted the front door!  It did stay purple for a couple of years and then we switched to a more conservative (?) maple red color.

A lazy weekend

After seeing Trish's photo this week of a favorite cat napping spot I remembered hubby had taken a photo the other day when I had a chance to curl up on the couch with two nice warm cushions. The only problems are sharp back claws being pushed into tender skin when Angel is getting settled and a cold wet nose when Seumas goes to put his head on my leg. Other than that.. it was good to be able to snooze on the couch for almost an hour!

Fur-riends on another blog

Two of Cat's handsome boys are not feeling well ... and I do hope they get better soon.  It can be a helpless feeling, not knowing exactly what is wrong and not being able to understand what is wrong with your pet.  This morning, we had a whiny pup out on the 5 AM walk (nothing wrong with him) and we were discussing how frustrating it can be trying to figure out whether the whine means hunger, thirst, pain or simply just a desire to play with someone. He had a round of needles yesterday so it could be residual discomfort..but I wish he could talk just a little to let me know what is wrong.
