How sweet is he???

At some point almost every day, this guy snuggles in my lap...and sometimes two or three times a day if I set down.  He spends a lot of time outside, and comes to meet us when we come home.  He will walk in front of us and flop down on the sidewalk and squirms around.  He wants us to play with him.  If we walk around him and go on, he jumps up and runs back in front of us and does it again.

When I am outside doing something, he is usually not far away.  As long as I don't have something that makes a lot of noise.   If I sit down to take a break, all I have to do is say his name or pat my leg and here he comes.


The past year or two, he has started getting in behind the curtain like above.  I would love to know what goes through his mind.   We used to play hide and go seek.  I would run and there is a certain way/beat I pat my legs and call his name and it is Game ON.  Then I remain quiet and let him come hunt me....I jump out and scare him.  He is a jumpy cat...he is so easy to scare.  Anyway, I scare him and he takes off and I run to tag him.
******************
I raked a few leaves this afternoon...did a load of laundry... a tiny bit of housework...just this and that.  But felt good to accomplish a little.  Leftover chili for our evening meal.  Roger was even content with it.  I don't mind soup at any time but Roger is not crazy about soup in warmer weather.

This is my current read...O Rugged Land of Gold by Martha Martin.   I saw it as a movie years ago and when it told it was based on this book I looked at the library and believe it or not, they had an old copy of it.  It was hard backed and well worn.  And I read it probably a couple times over the years.   And I told a blog friend about it as well as some of my other favorites.  So in talking to her, I decided I wanted to read it again, so I just ordered my own copy.  And it is as good as I remembered it.

I so miss our cat that we lost unexpectedly three or four years ago. Your cat is gorgeous! Now, that we have Millie, we probably won't get another. We do have three barn kitties that help take care of the mice and rats. You probably aren't going to believe that I ordered another copy of O Rugged Land of Gold. It should be here any day now, so I can pick back up with Chapter 18.

Awww! What a sweet kitty. I can imagine the fun you have playing hide and go seek together!

I have never heard of this book. Your kitty is so pretty and sweet! He must really love you both. For a cat, he is so affectionate!

What a sweet baby. I don't know what I would do without my babies. They are pure joy and happiness.

That cat is a great companion which is unusual for most of the cats I’ve known.

I am totally shocked to see a cat here, I did not know you have a cat. if you have been posting about this cat, then I am in big trouble because I wondered where the cat pic came from. he is beautiful and what you do with him is like what I do with Big, he loves to be chased... yay for left overs. I am with Roger, no soup on hot days or chili. not sure why since all food is hot.

Our dogs are good company. Of the two small ones, Harley sits with Terry and Max with me. If we are settled in for the evening, it's hard to get out of our chairs because we don't want to disturb the dogs. What is WRONG with us? lol.
xx, Carol

Sounds like a special cat.
I used to play hide and seek with my dog SammyJo. Such fun.

The book came in today's mail; looks just like yours. The first one I ordered had a terrible odor. Every time I sat down to read, I got all stuffy and felt like I couldn't breathe. It must have been covered in some kind of mold. I actually got sick, but I may have caught something from the grands in addition to getting such an adverse reaction to whatever was on that book. Yay, now I can finish the story!

I love a sweet kitty like yours. He looks sweet. Lots of people, my husband included, say you can't teach a cat anything but that's not true. Cats are smart. Our Smokey disappeared Sunday morning. He ate and wanted to go out. This was around 5:30 am. Late Sunday evening I realized we had not seen him all day. He comes in to eat and sleep all throughout the day. I worried about him all night. At 4:30 am Monday he scratched at the front door. I was happy to see him. I said "boy, where have you been!!" Cats are funny.

Rose, I left you a comment on my last post, but in case you missed it... When I started this new blog I tried to set it up with Tabs like you had done here. (I loved clicking on your Quilts Tab and being able to scroll through them.) However, I was never able to figure out how to set up the Tabs feature. It seemed complicated to me! Thanks for the suggestion. I may try again some day.
