Something else that Max never warmed up to!
He will occasionally rub his face on it…
It’s kinda flimsy and that takes away from the intended use of it.
He is a bigger cat also…he doesn’t pass through very well…

Simon. The cat who has found he loves the catio. Will park his butt there for hours, it’s warm and humid but I think he likes it better than inside with air conditioning. His brother stays inside. Simon is the 2nd cat in recent years to want to sleep on a porch cushion.

Our only outdoors cat is the steel one at the base of the tree (center of frame,lol) catching a bird.

Mango and Pumpkin and the cat blanket on the couch. Their relative sizes is not an illusion. Mango really is twice the size of his brother Pumpkin.

A most handsome fellow!

Fine job on your part to capture this wonderful expression in a photo.

Judy and I won a blanket similar to yours with more cat sized cats…we put it over a couch…the cats stopped in their tracks when they saw it!

I have a cat story that was almost a disaster but ended up to be a happy story. My wife likes to walk on the MUT along the river in our town. Just by chance she was near the bridge where she saw a car with its window down through something into the river. It turns out it was a baby kitten only a few weeks old. A fisherman nearby immediately rescued it from drowning and gave it to a couple of ladies also out for a morning walk. They showed the little kitten to my wife. The lady cradling the kitten in a T-shirt the fisherman gave her to carry the little thing said "my husband will want to keep it when he hears about this".

A few weeks later my wife again saw the lady given the kitten by the fisherman and asked about it. She said that indeed when her husband heard about the kitten he wanted to meet her at the vet (where she took it straightaway) to make sure they kept it. It turns out he suffers from depression with old age issues and this little kitten really makes him happy. She said the kitten really prefers him and it is totally his cat. He just loves to be in his lap. In this case good had the final word and outweighed bad.

Or a rabbit or squirrel.
She dreams well, legs moving, cheeks puffing, chuffing sounds.

I like cats. Didn’t find out until I was older that me and firstborn are allergic.
