It's Cats on Tuesday again. You can see other cat's pics and stories by going to Gattina's blog.

There's a new kitten in town! The neighbors have taken in a little stray girl-kitten, named her Smudge. She's a little shy, but friendly. I think she has to get used to me a little more. She comes over to see what I'm doing in the garden, and follows at a safe distance. She approches me when I'm sitting down, and I can approach her when she's on "her" wall. A cute and sweet little cat!

Molly likes a warm lap

Meow! It's Kittycat Tuesday! See other cat stories on Gattina's blog.
And if you have a few minutes (7 1/2 mins), go watch "The Cat Came Back", an animated short, just in the post below this!

Molly loves warmth, much more than the other two cats. If there is a warm spot of sun, she will be the first to find it and claim it to bask in. Mostly she prefers my lap. and will sit with me any chance she gets. Here I am at my computer, with Molly resting her chin on my hand. Makes it difficult to type sometimes! I try to do it lefthanded-onehanded. But that can't last long, so she would need to move.
