Feline Friday: Some adjust better than others.

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!

Some of the cats at the shelter are not at all phased by the construction and having to live in temporary buildings.

Nothing bothers me, I want to eat!


Others, however, are not having an easy time of it.

Some days are just like this!

  8. Can life get better than a full dish of cat food? Apparently not for that first cat! I hope for the tabby's sake that the renovations are over soon. Have a great weekend, Mimi! :)
