The Sun-worshipper

Everyone was still alive when I returned home from work yesterday. I don’t think the perma-cats liked Hector being out all day, but I doubt that he bothered them for the entire time, either. And the only way for everyone to get used to the new boy, and vice versa, is if they see him and interact with him. The experiment continues today.


In the meantime, the other beasts are probably feeling that too much time is being given to the newcomer. Therefore, allow me to show Portia when she was basking in the autumn sunshine this past weekend. The light is thinner now than it was, not as strong, but gentler. The sun is moving south, and it won’t be long until it doesn’t shine directly into the Cosy Apartment. My sun-worshipper was taking advantage of nature’s warmth while it lasts.

  1. I am so glad things worked out well and no one was insulted or whapped while you were gone (I think). And Portia, now that is some serious sunpuddle bathing. I'm surprised the other beasts aren't doing the same! I would love to see the trees filled with occupants, sunning. I have noted that the light is indeed thinner now and I don't feel as concerned about Katie lolling in a sunpuddle now as I did when it was so much more bright. Black fur and over-long exposure is not her friend.

  2. I'm glad there was no blood, no bodies. :-D

    Portia has a wonderful ledge on which to perch, or lie, to sunbathe. In a non-cat/pet household, that would be perfect for plants too!

  4. Portia *does* look like she's praying to one of the Cat Gods.

  5. It looks like this is going to be an easy integration for the perma-cats and Hector. Hopefully this will continue without much hissing and growling. Meanwhile Portia looks so comfortable relaxing in the sun.

  6. I am glad all appeared to be peaceful when you got home. The perma cats were probably tutting amongst themselves thinking you had forgotten to shut Hector in.
    Portia is enjoying the sun whilst it is still available.

    1. Ha! 'Forgot to shut Hector in'... Yes, that's probably what they were thinking.

  9. Portia sure looks to be enjoying the sun. So glad Hector and the PermaCats seem to be figuring it all out.

  10. I'm happy to hear everyone survived the new boy. Portia looks very content in the sunshine. She can keep an eye on the outdoors and stay cozy at the same time.

  12. Portia looks content and relaxed. Life is good at the cozy apt.
    Have you had any visitors to your outside bistro?

    1. Unfortunately, the only diner at Cafe Cosy has been a little grey girlcat who has a home. Sable has been missing for most of the year; Arliss has vanished; I don’t even get raccoons or skunks, anymore. Sigh.

  13. Portia you sleep like our Einstein. He also puts both paws straight out with his head in between. In bed he will move his head like he is suckling but not actually get a wet spot. He is the odd one. Does Poe do this a lot too? Cute

  14. Love how you are bowing to the sunpuddle, Portia!

    Nice to hear that things seem to be going OK as far as the process of integration goes. It seems to be moving along quite well...I too had a giggle at Jackie's comment about the tut-tutting, LOL!
