 AVALON, trying to take a nap . . .  

RITCHIE, our gentle giant of a friend.

PATRICK, the cool, "Adventure Cat" we met on a hike!

DUFFY, AVALON and yes, WILHELMINA (who usually sits or refuses to jump up at all),  standing on an erratic together!

LEVON, quite intense when he finds a subject to observe.

MALOU, our sweet, Salty Licorice Baby.

WILHELMINA, the Ribbon Queen.

DUFFY, makes me smile when I see him smiling.

LEVON, trying to convince himself he won't fall asleep. He eventually did!

Fashion Friday : Crashing out in the car , wearing my car bandana!

Duffy, " Hi ya! Welcome to another edition of Fashion Friday. This week , I am starting and ending my photoshoot in the car because I am wearing a bandana covered in cars. That seems apropos. As you can see, I am bright- eyed and bushy- tailed at the start of my adventure."

 A car covered bandana.

Duffy, " But after a few hours of cavorting in the forest with the Wild Sisters and friends, I am now bushed on the return trip home! Teehee. I am looking a little expectant here because the humom is picking up her lunch at a restaurant and I want to head home asap!"

Duffy, " My comfy, cosy bed is calling out to me from home. My eyes are getting heavy and sleepy as I begin to crash out in the car. . . hurry person who will carry me to my bed!"

Have a fabulous Friday!
See you soon.

Sunday Selfies: Happy Blogoversary to Kitties Blue!

First of all, we wanted to wish , The cat on my head, a very happy seventh blogoversary. We have been sharing their adventures since they first began blogging all those years ago. Our humom has also had the pleasure of meeting Janet, the keeper of this particular clowder of cats, at a few blogging events. We hope they continue blogging for many years to come , as they always make us smile whenever we drop by for a visit. We also wanted to thank the Kitties Blue for starting the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We enjoy participating in the Blog Hop as it is a good way to keep in touch with our friends as life brings us together or at times, pulls us in different directions.  

On another note,  we have had a very busy past few weeks as we appreciate the summer ;  playing with and visiting friends , enjoying city walks as well as enjoying our usual forages into the great outdoors. The kitties have exciting news. They have a new, extremely tall, cat tree! They have been exploring and relishing every aspect of their new, tall, tall tree the entire week.  It's lovely to see them entertained and delighted. We hope you are also finding happy moments in your days and that you are enjoying everything delightful which sweet summer time can offer.

A very extra tall, tall, cat tree!

Malou , exploring the hidey-hole on the tree.

Levon , observing efurryone from the very top nest on the new tree.

Avalon's acute sense of her body and her easy ability to balance, is both fascinating and beautiful to behold.
