ABC Wednesday - N

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


N is for Napping Kitty.......




a rust colored cat sleeping in the evening light



This feral cat adopted us about 5 years ago, shortly after our cat had passed away.

He appears at the front door each morning for some breakfast, and makes another round about supper time for a handout.

He is very wary of anyone but us, and I was fortunate enough to catch him one evening as he was napping.

  5. Ruth,
    I like to catch a glimpse of him during the day, making his rounds. He is pretty alert and clever!

  6. Rick - He is waiting for his evening handout - the theory of getting more with honey than vinegar applies here!

  7. He's like, "what the heck are you doing? Can't you see I'm trying to concentrate here?"

    Nice shot

  10. Ha ha Fruity! He does catch some - and he likes to share. Have to make sure to thank him through gritted teeth as I pick up his "offerings".

  12. What a pretty kitty! Now why didn't I think of this when I posted a cat picture a couple days ago!

  13. Thanks, Dot! It took a bit to come up with the "napping" for the "N" - kitty just wasn't going to do it.

  14. Hi Kathy -

    Having seen several of your photos of this kitty, I had no idea he was feral. He always looks so pet-like in your photos of him. Well done (both the photo and your role in looking out for him).

  15. He's beautiful! Stunning shot.

  16. He's a very handsome cat Kathy. I've never had one yet often considered it but they are so independent. I used to have a neighbourhood cat visit me but he killed too many of my lovely wild birds so I had to discourage him. :( Lovely that he has adopted you though, I'm sure he's very fussy who he gives his affections to. :)

  18. That is a gorgeous shot! I think you captured his essence.

  19. Very nice snooze he seems to be having!! Napping...such a nice thing to do every now and then...

  20. Thanks, Bobbie - he makes the rounds at some of our neighbors too.

  21. WFW _ he is very fussy - he takes off in a flash if anyone else is around.

  22. Awwwwwww! What a pretty baby. I'm so glad he adopted you and you watch over him. The kitty angels must have sent him to you. Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

  24. That was a lovely story. I guess that feral cat was meant to belong to you.

    Great stuff!

  26. What a fantastic picture. I really mean it. He looks just like my cat Tomba... same characteristics. You have captured him well!!

  27. There is a feral cat gracing my home lately. He came around while my husband was ill, sitting and watching the house with such grace that it felt like a blessing. I fed the cat, of course, and now he comes around regularly, sitting and watching and blessing us inside.

  30. I said this to your hostas, but this photo is just amazing. Love the reflective ground, really adds to the photograph. Anna :)

  31. Cute cat, love cats, we used to have a stray that would come by, but our cat jumped up at the window one day and scared the crap out of her/him, haven't seen the cat since

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thanks, Anna - he was sitting on the car roof which was shiny.

  33. hi Bob - they are pretty territorial - this one stayed away until ours passed away. There is another one starting to come around, but it keeps it distance - until we hear them arguing at night.

  34. Beautiful cat and photo!!! I took in a kitten that had been dumped in the woods and found by one of my daughter's college professors. He's been the most special cat ever with the affection he gives us. I promised him he'd never go hungry again. :D He was only 6 weeks old when we got him.

    Hugs, JJ

  35. Gotta love cats. We had a Siamese that moved in with us some years back. He was skin and bones at the time but soon filled out and was an absolute delight

  36. Not a care in the world....gorgeous photo, Kathy! The reflection is a great touch.
