A Cat for Every Window

Now that the weather is warming up and I can finally open windows again after a long (and stuffy) winter, I am amused to see that the cats have apparently been as eager for this event as I have been.

Of course, each cat has his or her favorite window--and gods help the other cat who dares to try and sit there.

 Minerva prefers the bathroom window.
 Mystic likes the living room window. Probably because it is large enough to accommodate his bulk.
Samhain, on the other hand, insists on the kitchen window, despite the fact that she has to cross the (off limits) counter to get there. Still, it does keep her safe from Mystic, so I let her get away with it. There's no way Mystic would fit up here!
Of course, there are cats who don't care about windows...like Angus, who decided to stretch out on the dining room table, despite the "no cats on tables" rule. When I scolded him, he gave me a look that I'm pretty sure meant, "But MOM, this is where the sun is!"

I hope you are all having as much fun with your "kids" as I have with mine.

Oh, and don't forget, there is only a week left to sign up for the next online class. Herbal Magick & Kitchen Alchemy -- it won't be given again until next year.


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you and your furry kiddos! :D Ours are hanging out on the balcony since we've opened the apartment up. And the bird is snoozing on top of her cage. It's a nice relaxing day.

  2. Yay for a nice relaxing day! *waves at Sierra and the clan*

  3. Don't you wish you could snooze on a sunny windowsill? Wow that would make a good character in a novel. A shapeshifter who turns into a cat sometimes so they can sun themselves in a window.

  4. I know what you mean, Deborah. My cats know the table is supposed to be off limits, but that's exactly where they'll stretch out. No telling what they do when I'm gone---swing from the chandelier light above the table??

    1. Julie--I completely believe that. I sometimes come home and think they've been moving things around, just to play with my head.

      Of course, that could be the gremlins, too...

  5. The only thing Oberon likes better than the sunny kitchen table is a basket full of clean laundry...especially if it's dishtowels and placemats. Ugh.

    1. You mean the ones that were miraculously cat-hair free for all of 23 seconds? Yup, we've got that here, too.

      *looks at Magic the Cat*

  6. No cats here - allergies - but I do have a dog, Kady, who loves to lie in the sun. I wrote a whole blog post about her following a patch of sun all morning.

    Looking forward to the class!!
