It's easy to see that the cats in our house are pretty spoiled.........
One of Olive and Astrid's favorite activities is bird-watching.
They can spend hours here watching birds. And with the early spring and warm weather we've had, I can open the windows so there is also sound as well.
The window perch is also a great place to nap in the afternoon sun. Astrid loves to groom herself as well as the other cats.
Any open window in the house is THE place to be..............
The window perch looks down on the back yard, where the bird feeders, squirrel feeder and the bird bath are located.
The birds also often land on the rain gutter right outside the window, for great close up views...........
Even the front hall window, with a very un-interesting view of the driveway and street can be fun, especially if I'm right outside working in the flower beds.
This extra bedroom that we don't use has kind of become the "cat room". I brought this cat tree up from the basement recently and put it near the window. A friend of Erik's actually made this for him years and years ago. It has been a favorite of both Olive and Astrid's, so I finally brought it upstairs.
As I said......I bet nobody can tell how spoiled our cats are................. ;-)
The scoop is a great place to look out the window, lounge and of course, nap.
The kitty condo is actually an ottoman. It has a hidey-hole that Astrid really likes.
When she doesn't feel like napping in the hidey-hole, the top of the ottoman works just as well.
....or the couch in the parlour......
Olive will sleep just about anywhere.......usually in a very un-ladylike position!
E.B., being an elderly gent of 15 years old, isn't much interested in bird-watching. He really likes sleeping.
Although, playing with toys is still interesting for this old guy.
When the weather is warm, Astrid likes to sleep with her tummy on the cool hardwood floor. I call her "Super Cat" when she lays like this.
Pets can be such a joy to have in our lives!
Thanks for stopping by!
