SKY CATS FELINE FRIDAY


Here are Brisbane and Hobart, sound to sleep in the window more than 10 stories up.  

Of course, Hobart got the spot on the desk because he likes to stretch out and lay on his side, Brisbane takes the window ledge because the warmth feels good on his old bones. 

When we first moved in to the apartment, they were wary of the windows...now we can't keep them away.

Oh, what a life. Brisbane looks so uncomfortable but then cats sleep in just about any position

Cute! I'd love to have a nice sunny window to nap by right now! :)

I guess sleep trumps fear.

My father always said that to find the most comfortable spot in the house we needed to watch the cats. He had a point, but the table isn't my preferred sleeping spot.

Great photo!! Looks like a good spot to me too.

I love sleepy kitty photos. Yours look so perfectly contented. They really know how to live the life of leisure!

Mike said...

Animals, you've got to love them, not a care in the world.
Myself and heights don't get along. Just looking at the photo down to the cars makes me queasy!

I still like your old "solar collecting" comment ��

Alison said...

I'm getting vertigo just looking at the picture and I envy them the ability to nap during the day. Oh to be a cat!

Cats, I believe, have a natural superiority complex. Often finding elevated spots to look down on us humans, haha

Hobart and Brisbane are certainly not spoiled or anything ;)

I need to go back and answer all these but I wanted to start here. I have always had a fascination with Australia and it's on my bucket list to visit someday. Just always been enamored of your country. So back in 1995 when I got my first cat, I named him Sydney. I liked the name for its connection to Australia. Then 2nd man and I got together and bought a house and we found the gray and white one as an abandoned kitten in the back yard. So we decided to stay with the names from there and used Brisbane. Sydney had a good long life and we lost him a couple years back (he lived to almost 19). We got the black one around that time and of course he had to be named for an Australian city. If he had been a 'she' it was going to be Adelaide. Alas, he was a 'he' and so I got a list out and it was between Melbourne and Hobart. He just looked like a Hobart and so here we are, ha. Thanks for stopping by!!! Come back anytime!!

Not at all, hope. LOL! I never thought about them liking to look down on us. They DO do that don't they? ;-)

1st Man said...

I know, right? Oh to be a cat......in the right household, ha.

1st Man said...

Oh they still love to do that. I need to do an updated photo for that.

1st Man said...

Oh that's the way he sleeps most of the time. It does look uncomfortable through, ha. He's our oldest so I think it's just more comfortable that way.

1st Man said...

And the occasional bird that flies by, ha.

1st Man said...

Aw, thank you!!!

1st Man said...

Napping in the sun is kind of relaxing isn't it?

1st Man said...

Cats always seem kinda fearless (or dumb, LOL!). I guess that's where the whole 9 lives comes from.

1st Man said...

Ha, good point. Yeah, not the desktop either.

1st Man said...

They loved it.

1st Man said...

It's different living up high isn't it?

1st Man said...

Not spoiled at all, ha. Thanks!! Sorry for the late reply.

1st Man said...

They just relax wherever and whenever.

1st Man said...

I don't mind the window, I'll stand right in it and look out but the balcony, nope, I'm good. ha. Thanks for stopping by!!!

1st Man said...

I understand. :-)
