Oscar - I wish I were him

This is all I can say or think today: wish I were him....

There is a storm roaring over Paris today, it rains, it is grey outside, so I wish I could be a tiny little gnome hiding in this soft furr. Although I'd have to make Oscar sign a non-attack contract before and give him a can of thuna...he can be a bit catty at times when it comes to little animated things or beings...

I must admit my cats sometimes look so comfortable they tempt me away from what I should be doing (have just spent all afternoon curled up by the fire with 3 cats and a good book! Lovely photo of Oscar - he is so beautiful!

Andrea, Oscar is so gorgeous and I am a cat lover too! Wouldn't it be great to curl up in a soft ball when the storms come, like Oscar did? Wonderful photo!

Patti said...

I just love it Andrea - a cat being a bit 'catty'! lol :)

Hallo Oscar, wie kannst Du bei diesem Sturm so ruhig schlafen, ich weiche meiner Dosi in soo einem Fall nicht von der Seite, beschütze sie, wo ich nur kann. Ich bin ein sogenannter Kampfkater.
Zumindest träume ich das immer, wenn ich genauso vor mich hindöse, was soll man denn bei so einem Wetter sonst auch machen.
Viele Miau an Dich und ein Nasenstubs für Deine Dosi.

A storm roaring over Paris? Cuddle up with Oscar. Listen to the purr. That's comforting.

Kim said...

Awe, Oscar is fabulous. I do not have a cat...allergy to them...they are so dear to see.

I hope the sun is shining now and you are getting unstuck from the web...I am working on it :)

Laura said...

Hi Andrea, stormy winds here in Belgium as well, but at least the sun is shining at the moment.
I have been wondering why you were not blogging and then realised that somehow you were not on my Reader list! That has been fixed.
hugs, laura

Storms are so romantic. Dark, rumbling, lightening, the sight sound of the rain, the essence of slight danger -- very inspiring. And, I can see Oscar is very inspired - inspired to take a cat nap. This is a great portrait of Oscar - and he is indeed - a handsome devil. Extremely photogenic this cat.

Andrea,

Oscar looks so comfortable during that awful rain storm....I can see why you wished you were him!

Today,it's our turn, we are having another snow storm!

Gigi and Lady are sitting on their favorite chair watching the snow through the window.

I took a photo and posted it on my blog for you to see. I have 3 cats and I love them so dearly.

I really should watch out or I am going to become this old lady surrounded by 100 cats! :)

What a beautiful shot of Oscar asleep. He does look ever so peaceful. I must invite him over to romp with Henry V when he gets up. Henry is undoubtedly asleep under a tree somewhere in the shade as I left him out this morning when I came to work.
But they can play and you and I can go back to the museum together! I too would like to see all that jewelry you drew up above here. Beautiful stuff. Drooling over it. Now do get locked in, sounds like something Ms Doodle could accomplish! Idea!

I can imagine that feeling! I always have that when I see my cats sleeping while I0m stressing to get things done and it seems there is no end to the list of things I have to do.
If I were my cat Minoes now I would be lying on my own arm now ;) making it nearly impossible to type.........
