cat on a hot tin roof ...




Each morning on holiday we would find this cute puss, languid upon the terracotta tile canopy to the front door of our village house and clearly taking advantage of a sunny spot before moving on to seek shade from the midday heat. 

She was a lovely girl, extremely friendly and mum to three very sweet kittens who all sported the most adorable combinations of colours, patterns and splodges!  How I managed not to smuggle them home is a mystery!

  2. PS I brought a cat home from Greece once! She had to visit the minister of agriculture and get a passport from the vet with her shot listings and a nose print.... it was hillarious. She lived for many years afterwards in the forests of New England.

  3. Hello Jeanne:
    How absolutely adorable. We, like you, should have been so tempted to steal them all and smuggle them home. We do so hope that the kittens will make out well and, ideally, be adopted by a caring, loving family. But, alas, in these situations one never knows.

  4. Dear Jeanne, this reminds me of a holiday in Spain with my parents and sister when I was a teenager. We lived in a friends house for a month and discovered a cat on our roof after a a day or two, she had 5 kittens and we fed her and them during our entire stay. On our last day she brought them down - we were close to bring them home too. Then the day of our departure they were all gone, having moved to another occupied house. To this day we wonder how she knew that we were leaving.;)
    have a great weekend,
    xoxo

  7. Very cute cat! they're not daft are they, finding the sunny spot on a surface that will warm up nicely! I think I would have wanted to smuggle one home too :-)

  10. What a sweet looking cat. Yup, lacking of smuggling definitely demonstrates great restraint :)

  11. She's a little beauty. Love her smudgy black little nose. My two cats love to soak up the sun too.

  12. Mmmmm - what a lovely warm spot that must have been. I'd think a little cat like that would be some sort of good luck talisman.

  13. She is a very attractive cat, I love the way her fur colour echoes that of the stones behind her. I bet her kittens were so pretty, how wonderful to be able to see them each morning:)

  14. Sure beats riding out Hurricane Sandy, which is what we did last night!

  15. What unusual markings! But she's found the best spot hasn't she?

  16. Dear Jeanne,

    Such a cutie! I never knew I was a catlover until we moved to the country and became with stablecats. Now we don't only have stablecats, now we also have two cats in our home. Two much loved familymembers who we completely shower with love. :)

    Take care Jeanne!♥

  17. Oh what darling pictures Jeanne. He looks perfectly content there surveying his surroundings. What a darling marking on his face too. Pretty unusual.
    I have become quite the cat lover in the past few years and thankfully, many of the feral cats adopt us. I think it must be because we have many places for them to take refuge and stay warm in winter and they have the garden and fields behind us to hunt in. I feed them too...so that could be it. One things for sure, we don't have many mice around. Somehow, they just make a house a home.
    It was so good to hear from you!
    hugs...

  18. I just happened to find your blog, doing some research on cottage garden style. And of course I was absolutely smitten by this sweet little cat. I do hope, she has a nice home! So that the four cats will have a fair chance. I gave a home to three cats but in every holiday I seem to stumble over more homeless cats. So I know that feeling of being tempted to smuggle a sweet little fellow home...I will come back to your blog with pleasure!
    Kind regards
    Christel
