Cats Outside

Most of the weather here has been cold and rainy, but during the few days of dryness, the cats like to be outside.

Tinkerbelle loves being up high. For such a tiny cat, she can be queen of the neighborhood and view things from above.

Pippin likes laying low, waiting for his favorite sky food.

Tas and Pippin like having a bit of a tumble now and then.

Molly wanders aimlessly, being blind, she must smell and feel her way around. She likes the softness of the grass.

But now and then she makes a wrong turn and ends up in the street. It's not too bad, there's never any traffic. But she can't find her way back, so I have to get her and bring her back home.

And then she likes to have a long nap after her adventures, curling up in my art nook on my shawls.

Have a great Tuesday!

Oh you do have some gorgeous cats! I love the name of your blog and the cat in the header, lovely! Looks like you have a tortie and a Bengal/mix too? Coloring reminds me of our Amber and Kosmo.

Your Molly is a very lucky kitty to have you as her human. My little Chester, who I lost last year, was blind in one eye. I wondered what I would do if he lost the sight in the other one but a coyote got him before that could become a question. The coyotes are why I won't allow my three outdoors. It's lovely that yours have a safe area outside to play in. They are beautiful kitties!

Pippin has wonderful markings!

Poor Molly, I would worry so for her. she is a strong willed one, being outside, although blind.

Thanks for bringing them all out for us! D :)
