Warmer Weather


It's finally warming up here in the desert.
We have open doors and windows in the morning, and the cold air monster on in the afternoons.  We approve of this routine.  Furthermore, we approve of Daddy working at home so he can implement it for us.
Here's what we're up to on a typical day:
 Felix sits on top of "his" stool by Daddy's desk.  Note how it's been made all cushy and comfortable by a rounder bed.  Mommy has been instructed to make one that's smaller and better-fitting.
Hop to it, Mommy!

Grayce keeps an eye on everyone from atop the Lotus cat tree.
Especially Daddy.  You never know when he might bust out with some snax.  

KonaKitty hangs out by the hall, ready and waiting to make a mad dash towards the Big Bedroom and get Top Secret kibbles served to her, in private, in the bathroom. 
Sometimes Daddy (and/or Mommy) forgets she's in there, so she gets a bonus nap on the bathmat.

The Baby bosses Daddy around!
Actually, she bosses ALL of us around.  Except Johnny, who wants to eat her.
In one bite.

May Ling hangs out, watching the pigeons.
That's our portable lawn outside the Catio, Daddy is growing us a fresh one.

Maui hangs out in an entirely different way.  He recharges his Crazypantz Capacitor during the day and runs around like a MadCat all night, discharging.


How many of us can you see?  
We're watching the little ground squirrel that recently set up house under the cabinet by the jasmine.

Scouty lounges in the Shooter Tube...

...while his brother CC hangs out with Sylvester.

Finally, Johnson demonstrates how to stuff a Cat into a box.
And that's our day, we hope you enjoyed it!

Happy Friday!

The Lounge Kats


  1. You guys sure know how to get optimal treat spots, we could take lessons!

  2. Dontcha just LOVE warm weather!! WE do!!! We enjoyed a warm, breezy day here in SC too.

  3. I think having thirteen cats must be fantastic!!! I love it when cats are just strewn about the house hanging out and doing their thing :-)

  4. It's so great to see you just hanging out and chilling. Or squeezing into impossibly small boxes. We love it when you blog does a tour of the house post as we can point at it all the bits we like and demand that Äiti provides us with the same facilities.....

  5. Warmer weather makes us cranky! But seeing you all relaxed calms us back down. That last picture of TJ cracked us up!

  6. Oooooh, that picture of The Baby all BOSSY and DEMANDING and STRICT got me all in a lather. Whew!

  7. PeeEss: Oh, and Ru-bella? See, there you are with the M-word again.
    You know that can't be a wise thing, right?

  8. We bet your daddy gets distracted a lot during the day seeing what all you are up to. There's only 3 of us and we distract our mommy constantly. We see 5 of you in that one photo.

  9. It is allus great ta see what you are ALL up to during the day.

  10. I'd say you guys are ready for the day to begin. Prime locations too. Oh, I counted 6 kitties in dat one picture. If there were more, they were well hidden.

  11. Wow! All you kitties have put the lounge experience to a whole new level. It's like watching a 3D movie with loads of pussies. purrrr....meow!

  12. It's important to keep an eye on your human. You never what they will get up to.

  13. You guys certainly have the life!!

  14. Ah, the joys of having 13 cats. What a great life (for the furries and humans alike).

  15. Hanging out and bossing daddy, dat's purrty much our day...'cept der are only three of us and mostly we sleep and let mom do da bossing.

  16. MOL..I love the way Johnny stuff himself into a box.Look like ready for delivery : ) May be to my house : )

  17. How sweet all these napping places ! I notice that all white cats have a special character, Arthur too is always bossing everybody around, lol !

  18. Thank you for the lovely tour and showing us your day - you guys are so well treated by your mommy & daddy.

    Johnson looks mighty squished in that box though, is he OK, do you think he will be able to get out ??


  19. It's lovely to see what you are all up to. Don't you just have a lovely time :) I think I need to demand some more brothers and sisters :)xx

  20. Yay!!!!! What a wonderful lovely day for y'all with Daddy to give you lots of treats too!!!!

    Enjoy you gorgeous kitties of katnip lounge!!! Take care

  21. does the squirrel know he has so many fans?

  22. Looks like you guys have such a great routine down for the day.
    No need to mess with purrrrrrrrrrrrfection.


  23. Y'all are sure ready for the nice warm weekend!!!

  24. Oooh...nice lounging. I want to lounge with you.

  25. A relaxing day spent napping, eating & watching wildlife!

  26. I love seeing what you are all doing. Except..except..where's my Rupert?

  27. Warmer weather sounds wonderfully relaxing at your house. At my house it means that all the bugs come out of hiding, they are called black flies and they are everywhere. Of course I am doing my part trying to catch and eat them all!

  28. We love the Catio. Though, looking at the pictures, we had to wonder if The Baby hadn't been drinking a little. MOL

  29. Woohoo for the warmer weather ... enjoy!

    WE count six of you in the 7th picture (that is, if you include the white toesies hanging off of the very highest ramp)! :)

  30. Well, no wonder it takes so many of you to keep those peoples of yours in order! If you ever need a few extra paws to keep them unde cntro, you just let me know, eh?

  31. We did enjoy it!! I think I saw either 7 or 8 kitties. Now I've got to know how many!!
    I love how Johnson is in the cat box. That is too cute.

    Have a nice weekend!

  32. You all have a very busy day!!
    Happy Friday from..

  33. It really does sound like you live in kitty heaven! We really enjoyed the update.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  34. All of you stay very busy during the day there. Great pictures of all of you doing your things. We see 5 cats in that picture. But I am sure there are some that are hidden. Don't forget you kitties to be nice to your Mom on Sunday. Our Mom has told us we have to be nice to her on Sunday. What is the deal with that?? Take care.

  35. Everyone is in his/her place with a smile on their face.

    Mom doesn't know why but everytime she reads
    "Johnny wants to eat Baby", she literally cracks up that is so funny.
    Thanks for letting mom know there are no rules when it comes to Da Bird...'cause sometimes I say HBO words to Da Bird.
    Hugs Madi

  36. Looks like a great day at the Katnip Lounge! I counted six kitties in that photo, one of which was just a black and white paw hanging off the top shelf!
    Love it!

  37. Well you know what they say...busy kitties keep the humans crazypants...or is that...crazypants kitties keep the humans busy...
    Well all looks good :)
    the critters in The Cottage

  38. Mum says she would just love to spend a day at your house seeing you all hanging out as it must be fabulous. Loved seeing how you all spend a day.. Hugs GJ xx

  39. We enjoyed this post very much and the pictures are terrific. Looks like all of you are having a great day and getting snacks too, yippee!! Hugs and nose kisses

    Sylvester I'm getting ready to teleport over!


  42. Looks like a great day at your house! I loved getting to see so many of you in one post.

    We have the windows open in our house. We like the breeze but the pollen in our fur is icky. We count elebenty hundred cats in that photo.

  44. We like how you guys spend the day!! Send some warm weather our's still too cool here!!

  45. You kitties had a pawsome day! Is there no box too small for Tiny Johnson?

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, and Hollie

  46. You have such a great routine going!

  47. I loved learning what you fabulous felines are doing on a typical day! :)

    Johnson that is a tricky pose you're doing there!

  48. There is no way you could possibly become board at your place! BTW, Teak is possibly a Turkish Angora. It's sad but over the past couple years in this crazy economy, when humans lose their homes they just let their cats out even purebreds. Mommy has belonged to the Bengal rescue since saving TyGr and she is amazed every week how many Bengals are saved and rehomed. All of us are glad we are loved as family members!=^Y^=

  49. There is a lot of loveliness here today!
    xo Catherine

  50. Great set of pics! And Chester loves the idea of being a MadCat ManCat like Maui! Mom has to measure Chester's whiskers to see if they beat Maui's!

  51. I love the set up you have there, ive just bought a lovely scratch post for Meg, she would love one of those multi tiered ones but we dont have the room.
    love reading your posts, thanks for dropping by to see Meg the other day, she says Meeeeeow x


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
