Cats Napping

 "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul
remains unawakened!"
Anatole France'
As indoor cats my girls love to get outside
 periodically for naps in the sunshine always
 supervised very closely by momma.
I set boundaries for them.
 "I pet her and she pays me back in purrs!"
Star Riche's
"Who would believe such pleasure from a 
wee ball of fur!"
Irish saying 
Cat Nap beside Catnip

Great photos of your two black cats. I have trouble getting good ones of my grandson, Big Al.

Sweet photos but do tell. How do you supervise a cat once it's outside????

I sit on a bench watching them and the minute they wander somewhere that is NOT ALLOWED I tap a straw broom beside them and they skiddadle back inside!
Babie knows her boundaries but my old girl Ms. Paisley attempts to get off the patio but never gets too far before the broom comes at her! Tough love at times but that's the trade off for getting outside the odd time. We are surrounded by the woods.I must watch them carefully!!!

Beautiful companions Anna.

So sweet! Apparently, one of my cats decided to nap in the nepeta, because they've made a nice little nesting place in the middle of it:)

Hi Anna, I loved your pictures and story of your beautiful black cats. A year ago we adopted an 8 week old boy and he is the sweetest, most affectionate cat I have ever had. I would love to be able to let them out a bit too, but I would have to supervise them like you do, but I am afraid one (the tortoise female) would slip away and I would have to chase her back. Pepper, our black cat has never been outdoors, but Piglet, the torty was rescued from the outdoors and she has strong desire to get outdoors again. Part of me really wants to let them bask in the sun on the patio like you do. But I'm afraid it will spell trouble.

What a great quote and I believe it is soooo true. :)

They are gorgeous!!! I have never been able to stop the cats wandering, so mine are strictly indoor only!!

Oh, they're looking good! I do love the purr factor -- isn't it the best?
