Kit-Cat the Cuddle-Upper

“Cats never strike a pose that isn’t photogenic.”  ~Lillian Jackson Braun


“The ideal of calm exists in a sitting cat.”  ~Jules Reynard


Kevin and I photographed some Thanksgiving-themed place card ideas for this week, and even though I had just started pulling things together in that last pic, I just had to snap a pic when I came around the corner and saw Kit-Cat curled up in the bun basket. I texted the pic to my BFF/neighbor and she jokingly replied, “Remind me not to eat the bread next time we come over for dinner!”

Happy weekend to you and your cuddle-uppers!

    Tell your neighbor ‘everything tastes better with a little cat hair in it!’ It’s so funny the places they choose to squeeze into!

      BTW, I’m anxiously awaiting the airstone fireplace reveal! I saw them at Lowes last year and have been thinking about useing them on our tv wall. I can’t wait to see what you think about working with them!

    Pure adorableness. I bet you are so glad that little cat found his way to you. He seems very entertaining.

    I absolutely adore both of those pics. I will be showing those to my husband this evening, so he will see it’s not just our kitten that likes to get into everything!

    I love him sleeping in the basket. Years ago, we had a basket that we kept napkins in on our counter. Used to find our cat snuggled up and snoozing in that basket. Naughty naughty. :)

    So sweet! My boys would never be able to fit their buns in a basket that dainty…although they would still try!

Your new place is really taking shape and I am excited to see more as you get it transformed into YOUR place. Prayers continue for you and your adoption journey. So excited for you!! Thanks for sharing, sweet girl. Blessings, Linda

    So cute! This is something my own cat would do! He loves to squeeze himself into the smallest boxes and baskets.

    Love that Kit-Cat!!!! He sure loves the camera and the cat person that I am, I love seeing all the crazy things he does!!

    That’s so what I love about cats. They love squeeeeeeezing their little furry bodies into the tinest spaces. Kit-Cat’s adorable! LOVE the guitar case pic. It should be on the front of a greeting card…you guys could so market your own cards with these pics!

    Every time I see a Kit-Cat photo on your blog, I remember you first telling us about how you rescued him from harm but never planned on keeping him. He is just so precious! I have four kitty cuddle bugs at my own house (two which are attached to me as I sit in bed with my laptop, of course).

  14. says

    Great pictures. While they eyes peeking out of the guitar case is precious, the cat napping in a bread basket in the middle of a set dinning table, is classic. I have got a few god picks of my own cats, but most of the cuter scenes are lost to history, as my cats tend to move as soon as I grab my camera.
