My little cluttered kitchen.

Outside the kitchen window.
Another gorgeous summer day.

The wildflowers are a treat for the eyes
and my one-whiskered garden cat
waits patiently for the glads to bloom.
Cats can wait for a long time.

Someone has just woken up and wants her breakfast.
On the window-sill. of course.

Cats just make a house a home, don't they?
Even a mouse-house.

  1. Cats certainly make a house a home.Sierra looks beautiful!

  2. Yes, cats do add something wonderful to a home... hard to explain, but like kids, I would find it hard to live without them. With Molly's passing, we are now down to 4 - and although there are no plans to take anymore into the house, the 4 we have have become even more precious. And your kitchen doesn't look cluttered, it looks cozy.

  3. I love your garden cat. So cute!

  4. I don't know what I would do without Charlie waking me up each morning! Cats do make a house a home!

  5. I wonder what the kitties think of the ornamental garden cat.

  6. They do make a house a home...don't know what I'd do without my fur-kids! Love the flowers and your garden cat is cool.
    Hugs and Purrs....

  7. Yes, I do agree with that! They add so much!

  8. Absolutely! I couldn't live anymore without at least one cat. We do have two and they bring us so much joy, make us laugh or smile. I love all their different sounds and habits. Cats are just wonderful.

  9. Your garden cat and the flowers looks cute...

  10. Love your garden of wild flowers. Oh I couldn't find any Glads this year but I will be buying the bulbs and planting them this fall for next year ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good weekend !

  11. Lovely wildflowers! My cats love to sit in the windowsills as well. Cats definitely do make a home. I can't imagine one without them!

  12. "Cats just make a house a home, don't they?"

    Yes, Deb, they do. : )

    Yesterday we brought home a little black boy kitty who is about 6 or 7 years old...

    He is currently in hiding but does come out for food, water and litter box use so we are good. And he is up for head scratches if you put your hand in. They said at the shelter it would take a long time probably for him to adjust to a new environment as it had there. They were right. Waiting for the same lovely snuggles we got from him at the shelter yesterday... oh to have to have such patience! lol.

    We have been kitties-less for 15 months after losing our last senior. I have been ill and had to wait to bring a new furry person home. Such a long time to not touch fur. So, this is very big in our lives.

    Thank you for writing your blog. I visit to read each post and enjoy so much whatever you are sharing with us.


  13. I have a wall plaque that states a home is not a home without a cat, it has a big white kitteh cat on it, I also have one in our bedroom with a big black cat on it..My good friend makes them for special people, I guess she knows I adore kitteh cats..It is so smoky outside with the many wildfires here decimating our pristine forests in Washington state, we cannot take another 90 plus day but there is nothing we can do. Our kitteh cats stay inside mostly our baby ginger cat wonders why she cannot leave the enviorns and our older matriarch cat Miss Cody sneezes so we had to get some medication prompty..I pray for rain and cool weather daily, 100 year drought and enough fires to actually believe in a hell on earth..I cry in my heart for those who passed from fighting the wildfires and to all those who lost their homes, it is horrible! Reading your blog helps a lot..Kudos for your love of all animals and people especially how tender you are to kitteh cats, have a wonderful week..ciao!
