Shadow Shot Sunday


I love Autumn and so does my cat. She has her favorite perch by the window. This morning she tried to get me up and out of bed twice by jumping on me. First time at 7:30 a.m. didn't work, but the 8:30 one did. While I sat at my desk, half-asleep, sipping my coffee, she enjoyed her morning sun. For some reason, she wants me up in order to enjoy her sunning. What can I say? I love her dearly, so what she says, rules. And I got this shadow shot of her.

After the coffee took effect, I was glad to be up. It was a beautiful, sunny morning. In the evening, we had our first snow. It melted as soon as it hit the ground, but it felt good to see the snow.

What a beautiful shot of your regal Siamese, tail twitching, always on the guard...

We had only a skiff last night, but the sun eludes us today, but not the winds here on the Great Plains...oh the dreary days of winter...

This is a beautiful shot of your cat, and interesting shadows. It must be nice to have a perch like that one and spend your time gazing out of the window.

*Hello Kitty!*

This is a gorgeous photo of your cat. There's so much going on in the image, it's just lovely.

Your cat obviously adores you & simply wanted to share as much of the beautiful day with you as possible.

Or kitty was hungry & wanted an early breakfast ;)

That's funny that she wants you to keep her company in her sunning. We love their quirky personalities, don't we? Nice shadow shot.

Very cool shadow shot.
your cat sounds adorable, I really like that perch as well. maybe she thinks that the sunning moment is so comfortable that you will enjoy it too! cats like to share stuff when they like you =)

Thanks, everyone for coming by.

Sweet repose, winter is fast-approaching here too.

kat, yes, I liked that face shadow too!

bobby, greyscale, that is her favorite morning spot.

alissa and magic, thank you!

hey harriet, I had thought she was hungry too, but she had food in her dish. Next, I thought she wanted to play. Playing was not it either. Just my company.

lemon, sara, and hot fudge, she is adorable. And you are so right that she wants to share the moment, so I am touched by that.
What a wonderful picture..The shadows are so nice..Beautiful cat.

so nice of you to make a sunny perch for your kitty complete with pretty shadows too.
My doggie is the same way. I am only allowed to sleep in for so long & then she wants me back to routine. sometimes I think our beloved pets know what is good for us!
Great shot! I love the shadows on her body:)

Lily, I have to agree that sometimes our pets know what is best for us.

flytie, I think she does:)

thanks for visiting and your most wonderful comments!
That is quite a perch! My kitty would love one of those se she could sit in the afternoon sun and look out the window.. if only she could see how to get up there! (She's mostly blind now, just from the past few months)

Great shot!

Blue-eyed Siamese Cat flies to Japan

Today was filled with my art and time with Sputnik. She was bathing herself which gave me the chance to catch a photo of her. I actually adopted Sputnik as a kitten in 1998 when I was living in Mexico. She made the long trip with me to Japan on July 25, 2004. It took me about 6 months to plan the logistics of bringing her from Mexico to Japan. Since I had to fly via the U.S. on Mexicana Airlines and Korean Airlines, that meant 4 countries and two airlines would need to approve her transport. There were many details to keep track of for each country and airline. After 6 months of stressful planning, 16 hours of two airline flights and layovers, She made it to Japan safely! Korean Air allowed her to fly with me as my carry-on luggage, which was a relief for me. No worrying about whether she was scared or left at the Los Angeles airport! I didn't give her any tranquilizer to sedate her. Yet, she was quiet the entire flight and went unnoticed by other passengers. I h

Married Shadows

My husband and I haven't had a T.V. for the last 15 years, maybe more, so we often go to see movies at the Cinema. The last couple of ones that I've enjoyed have been Transformers II and Terminator IV. Two more of my favorites are Slumdog Millionare and Milk. These latter two were well done movies from all angles (acting, script, cinematography). This is us after an afternoon at the movies and eating out. We had just come from Starbucks and were heading to the train station. For more shadow shots and to learn how to join this Meme, please visit Hey Harriet's blog .
