Cat nap

On a hot, sunny day last week - the cat was looking about the garden for somewhere cool to lie. Eventually, she decided upon a muddy patch and curled herself up for one of her well earned cat-naps. Sometimes, because of her colouring, I find it difficult to see her in amongst the garden plants. Even though she stood out a little better on the soil - it still took a while to discover her hiding place. The patch must have had a little moisture in it as some of the soil was deposited onto her tail - imagine if the ground had been damper!
The cat's little snooze
Little note: for people who have wheezing and coughing attacks around cats (asthma, runny eyes and general irritations) - it is the cat's saliva (the general grooming by licking action) that often causes these reactions. To aid such problems - take a clean cloth, rinse it in clean water and gently wipe over your cat from nose to tail. This may need to be repeated on a daily basis to help alleviate symptoms . . . I hope that you have a very patient cat!

What a cute cat! Looks so peaceful! We have a foster cat that looks very similar.

Your cat looks just like my Spunky Doodle. Mine is strictly an indoor cat now though.
