It’s a hard life

being a cat.  The picture below is what greeted us when we arrived home from a trip out today.  He opened one eye, chirruped and then went back to sleep.

The pose reminds me of Ronald Searle's cat portraits.

On another note my blind date** didn’t go so well last night, by the time I got to bed I was too tired to read much, resulting in me being bonked me on the nose by my blind date, as I fell asleep while reading.

  5. He blends in quite nicely on your lovely quilt! I can almost feel how soft he is, just looking at this picture! Truly a pampered pet.

  6. At least Cody acknowledged your presence - when I got back from a medical appointment this afternoon Zebby continued sleeping despite me dumping things on "our" bed.

    Cody's tum looks very tummy-rub-worthy. Does he like that? Zeb goes off into a super happy trance, then starts washing his face!
