Let me in!

It's another Cats on Tuesday.

Pippin outside "Let me in. let me in. let me in. let me in... let me in!"
We have a cat door... That's why our neighbor's cat Tinkerbelle is always in our house. She helps herself to food and comfort.
But Pippin thinks he's special, and demands we open the door for him.

Me, opening door "Ok, Pipps, come on. ... Pippin? yoo hoo.. ... Pippin, did you want in?"
Pippin outside "Hmm.. what's that over there..."

Sunny Day Kitties

It was a lovely sunshiney Cats on Tuesday morning. Cats were outside basking in the warmth.

Can you find the kitty?

The view from the back door.. Tas on the grass, watches the visiting cats loitering in my back garden.

Farewell Molly

Molly passed away last week, while I was visiting my Mom. I'm sad that I wasn't with her during her last few days. But she was with my husband. She spent her last evening with him and the other two cats on the couch, watching a show on TV. She died that night. It was not unexpected as she was very old and was getting quite frail. But it still came as a shock to me, I hadn't thought I'd never see her again.
Here are a few of her last photos..

Rest well, sweet kitty..
