Catsky . . . in Heaven!

. . . when I see this . . .
I knew somebody is up on the roof again!
And then I understand why the agitated drooling hounds below are whining like mad again!

I call all visiting cats in our house Heaven as Catsky. . .

I really can not understand it because my dogs grew up with cats. My late Mom had 21 cats which she practically adopted from the neighborhood, feeding everyone as they come and go, until my Mom died, and her cats and dog stayed until their old age! Sweepys Mum and Sumo's mate Pica was my Mom's dog and Pica was put to sleep at 17 years old! The last of my Mom's 21 cats was Gold and Gold practically tolerated all of Pica's family until Bogart and Sweepy came along which proved too much for Gold and Gold stayed on the roof (where he was fed and his bed cleaned regularly) until he died of old age. . . Now the stray cats around the neighborhood still stray in our property even with my barking dogs but stays only up to our roof.

I missed having cats again.
And I love that the stray cats would still stay on our roof to sleep.
Apparently, our neighbor would feed them.

I love their indifference.

I love their elegant movements.

I love that they love to stay in Heaven . . . even with my noisy, drooling hounds!

There's a lot of stray cats in my neighbourhood too, I know a few ladies who would walk around feeding them in the evenings. I'm not a fan of them so I stay away from them.

Such a wonderful cat, and I can see its a male cat ;) So nice of you to let them stay on the roof and yhat they can come and say "hello" to you! :)
Oh my.. your mum must really loved cats, so many of them!! :O Then I can understand you're used to them. And her dog got to be very old and a good and long life!!

Well said! Our cats don't have access to our roof, but I wish they did. A cat snoozing on your roof is a lovely thing:). (sometimes I think dogs just bark to announce what's going on;)

A very interesting post. Your cat collage is so cute! I'm a cat lover, but I could never manage 20 plus cats. Thanks for your insights about spirals on my blog today.

I always lived with both cats and dogs and usually they got along quite well; romping and playing together.
