Feline Friday: Hello, Stranger!

Feline Friday is hosted by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Steve's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!

Dansig is back so he can get a check-up from the vet, make sure he is still recovering.

He just laid down and made himself at home.
At first, EnigmaSissy wasn't happy, but eventually she settled down.

EnigmaSissy finally chilled out.
The kittens, of course, are bothered by nothing.

Not much bothers them!

  5. Let's hope Dansig is on the mend. Enigmasissy looks angry. I've got one of those cranky-looking cats. And kittens go about their business like they own the house. The spotted one is my favorite.

  8. And no one was guarding the fridge? Huh. I hope all are doing well. It could just be my bias for gingers, but Dansig looks like a lover.
