  1. Great shots indeed
    Here at your feed
    Cocoa getting ready to climb up or just scratching?
    Bet a scheme is hatching
    lmao to 3 cans of pringles in one sitting
    A record he must be hitting

    1. Cocoa just scratched...
      upon the roof he doesn't latch
      At least not very often, you see.
      I had to save him up there when he was a baby.
      Harry floated around like he was on drugs
      with a spacey look on his little mug.
      Read somewhere it's like an opium high
      autistic kids get from potatoes...no lie!
      That's why we hide them in the first place,
      so they don't go floating in outer space. hahaha....

    2. lmao never knew it was like an opium high
      No wonder they want them piled to the sky

    3. I started hiding them in the freezer with a lock
      and last night he figured out how to break in! What a shock!
      He's never used a key for anything.
      He left the empty Ruffles bag in our bathroom trash and started to sing.
      Ate a one pound bag, he did.
      I guess I'll stop buying them as the poor addict can find them hid.
      lol.....geesh!

    1. It was a lovely day for autumn light...just glowing!
      Cocoa really is a stunning cat...he prefers to be outside so I don't get many photos of him!

  3. All gorgeous. Love the colour of the mums. Has your missing kitty returned?

    1. No, Grey hasn't returned. Two weeks now. So sad.

  4. Hi Betsy, the puddy tat is my fav of course. My friend had the fortitude to let her cat go yesterday. I was so relieved that she seemed to comprehend the hopelessness of his situation. Naturally, I'm so relieved for the poor cat. I wonder how his brother will fare without his sidekick. They were both born on Christmas Day in 2003.The remaining cat is such a little stinker who loved to start a rumble with his brother. He's so ornery you could almost see the wheels turning as he schemed. Lynne in NC

    1. I'm so glad she did....still so hard. Two kitties born on Christmas Day....aw...that is so sweet. I hope the one left adjusts alright. You're a sweet friend to be by her side through all of that. :)

  5. Beautiful! It's looking very 'autumn-y' in your neck of the woods! :)

    Saw your 'befores' on the kitchen and I just had to say how much I love your sunny desk spot off to the side and how light and bright it is. But, that being said, I am in extreme anticipation to see what your 'after' will look like. I'm sure it will be wonderful!

    Hope everyone (boys and cats) will cope well come MOnday! :)

    1. I do love my little nook in the kitchen with those windows! It's been all kinds of things...eating area with a table, sitting area with a loveseat, reading area with a rocker and fern stand...but this is my favorite and so functional for me. I always say I can check email and stir spaghetti sauce at the same time! ha.

  7. Gorgeous fall flowers! And I love the kitty's shiny black fur and pretty green eyes : )

    1. I love his eyes....maybe because he isn't a litter mate to the others and they are obviously different. So pretty!

  8. You have some witty commentors! I simply enjoy your photos. Yet, I can be (sometimes) wickedly funny (mean).

  9. Love those sunny fall mums in your pretty wicker stand. I remember when you first got that. So pretty. And my isn't Cocoa handsome - such luxurious fur and beautiful green eyes. And I continue to have a crush on Sentry Bunny! :-) Our day was lovely and sunny too but I have not noticed too much changing colour yet.

    1. I love that bunny, too! I guess I loved him so much because he was different from the typical and ever popular goose. I had him in my kitchen for a while...up on the island no less! Yeah, I'm different like that. ha.

    2. We had a famous circus clown living in Blackpool called Cocoa, which slightly spoils the ferocity image of your dear cat, what with seeing off the local Toms. Gladiator or Genghis Khan I thought might add a 'bit of clout' . . . as we say her in BritLand. You'll be expert at speaking Brit language soon . . . lol

    4. ROFL . . . .
      I thought my comment had gone into hypersapce
      Then I discovered it had gone to the wrong place
      It should belong to our conversation
      Three people down, upon investigation.
      You might wonder why I sent it twice
      Sometimes I have to send them thrice
      I rarely can send comments first time
      Hence this explanation rhyme . . . . . . lol

      PS. No need to send the men in white coats - just yet . . . lol

    1. Cocoa looks so big there but he's really one of the smaller cats. Nobody messes with him, though...he can really hold his own. ha. He runs of toms that try to come onto the barracks...he's vivicous! haha.

    3. I woke up yesterday, looked out of the window to see a typical Autumn day; dark grey sky, raining and cold. Today I looked out to a beautiful sunny day just dawning, the birds were blooming and the flowers were singing and I thought "What a wonderful country we live in, we don't get weather here, we just get samples!"

      Delete
    4. Hope your sample lasted ALL day. :)
