But there's one thing they agree on: When the sun is out, it's time to do some serious sunbathing. They stretch out together to catch some rays, and they don't care who watches them do it. See?
Totally shameless. They don't even care that I have my camera out, clicking photos a mile a minute. They want to nap, and they're going to nap. Period.
Cats and dogs with complicated histories should never be left alone in the same place without supervision. Cats can strike out at dog eyes and mouths, and those claws can do a lot of damage. And dogs can get in a big bite and shake, and that could be catastrophic for kitties. Even when the two animals seem fine, it's best to be careful. So Sinead and Jasper can only sunbathe when I am within about 20 feet of their preferred nap spot. That allows me to step in if something goes wrong.
And today, I tried to get them to stop sunbathing long enough to work with me on a selfie to share with the folks at The Cat On My Head. Here's what I got.
Um, no. That's what we call a cat selfie fail. So I'm doing something a little different for the selfie portion of our program.
Here's a snap I took on Friday at Willamette Humane Society for the cat blog I write up for them. This old guy is King George. He's 13+, and somehow, he got separated from his family. He was found roaming around the streets of Salem, looking for food. And he was having a hard time catching any food and defending himself, since he has been declawed in front.
George has been waiting for a home for more than a month, and he's grown a little depressed. He no longer hops down to meet new people. He just stays in his bed. But if you give him just a little attention, he becomes a leaning machine. I snapped this selfie when he was pushing all of his weight into my body. And right after I took the snap, he crawled up and gave me a full body hug.
Now, THAT is a selfie worth sharing, right?
Thanks for looking, and do leave me a comment, so I'll know you were here! Also, if you wouldn't mind, do share this information about King George. We need to get him a home, pronto!
Enjoy the hop!
