If I fits, I sits...

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Last week I was out on my deck straightening up, getting rid of flowers that had died with the frost and just getting everything ready for the cold weather. I had my helper, Lloyd, following me around. After a while I took a break to photograph some pretty leaves I had gathered around the yard when I noticed Lloyd climbing into this tub we had on the deck. After he finally found a cozy position in there he napped for at least three hours.
What a heart breaker! I love when kitties curl up in things that are probably just a little bit too small to be comfortable, it's the cutest.

Hope you have an excellent Tuesday!
xoxo

  2. Ohh, that's so sweet! One of our kitties likes to sleep in the laundry basket, all curled up as a little bundle of adorable ^_^ Oh to be able to get as comfy as a cat can!

  3. So adorable! My kitty used to love sleeping in shoe boxes as a kitten and continues to try to, despite now being twice the size of the boxes!

  5. So cute!!
    Haha I keep seeing people posting "cat traps" on Reddit: empty decoy boxes on computer desks, so the kitties will climb into the box and not lay down on the keyboard. They appear to be shockingly effective!

  7. How precious! I love see photos of Lloyd. A while ago I was dying for a cute, stray kitty to make my porch his home. Just when I thought all hope was lost, one of the MANY strays in our neighborhood set up shop on my front porch. He's the cutest! I named him Walter. The only problem with Walter is that sometimes, when I open the front door to go in or out, he makes a mad dash inside!

  8. Lloyd = <3

    So I have to ask, are there plans to built him a warming hut for the winter?

    1. There are plans to put a kitty door into the garage for him and all the other strays. Instead of feeding them outside their food will be in the garage along with some beds, a little box, some toys and catnip (because I just discovered Lloyd LOVES catnip!) :D

    2. I love that you guys are wanting to give the homeless kitties a place to stay warm + fed in the wintertime! (let's hope the raccoons, squirrels + skunks don't figure out how to use a cat door ;)
      Lloyd is one photogenic little bowl-napping kitty!

    3. I've actually kind of got my fingers crossed we get some other animals in there too. The other day we found an opossum eating on the deck and I was just tickled pink. I'm a non-discriminatory lover of all animals (except pet birds, they're creepy!)

  9. *heart melts* Cats are too funny! Mine enjoys squashing herself onto tiny sheets of paper. Like all four paws on a sticky note :D

  10. I'm such a sucker for if it fits, I sits....My kitty does a similar thing, but it's more along the lines of "if I'm obviously not supposed to sit on that, I sits" haha! she likes to sit on piles of computer cords and other definitely uncomfortable things.

  12. Jeeze louise this is cute! Lloyd just melts my heart. We have a fruit bowl on our table that, when empty, serves as an ideal napping spot for our smaller cat (the fat one just looks on with jealousy).

    1. I dunno! With four cats already I have a hard time with the idea of having a fifth. I love Lloyd a lot but I think I'd like to focus on finding him a home instead of bringing him in.

  20. That turkey looks like he's ready to be put in the oven! LOL--I love how cats find the strangest places to sleep, hehe.

  21. Hahaha I love Lloyd. My cat used to lay in a basket that I keep magazines/newspapers in, and when I tried to put a blanket in it, she refused to go in it until I took it out. Cats are the weirdest. And the best.

  22. Heeheehee. Cute things make me laugh ridiculously.

    I have a kitty that always waits for me to start knitting then comes up to lay half of herself on one of my arms. It can't be comfy, but it sure is cute!

  26. I don't know why but animals sleeping in uncomfortable looking positions always makes me go 'awwww' - these photos are ridiculously cute xo

  27. So cute! Do you put any food out for your outdoor kitty visitors, or do they just know that you are a kindred spirit?

  30. Because it gets so hot here, our cat likes to curl up in the hand basin in the bathroom. Yes she is too big for it, but I am guessing the enamel is nice and cool or her to nap in.

  37. B'aww! My puppy does things like this. He's so tiny I find him in the strangest spots. Tiny gaps between storage, wedged between cushions, I have to be so very careful whenever I go to sit down. Thankfully as I generally sit cross-legged he tends to squish himself in the little gap which my legs make.

  43. so wonderful you caught his little cat nap! it's always fun to see where my olive disappears to— sometimes i find her curled up inside the giant speaker my bf is building. she also really loved it the one time we accidentally left the dresser drawer open (never again though— there are not enough lint rollers in the world to fix that kind of damage).
