Awww Monday: The Look

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Join us every Monday for Awww...Mondays.  Post a picture that makes you say Awww... and that it.
Make sure you get the code from Sandee's site, linked above, and leave a link to your post so we can visit you.  What better way to start the week than with a smile!

These two were snuggled, but gave me "the look" when i opened their cage to snap a photo!

What a great picture, I love it!

So for some reason your blog is displaying differently than usual, in a long thin column. Not sure if it's my PC or if anyone else has encountered this. I'm guessing user error on MY end, probably I'm not sufficiently caffeinated and have some display setting wrong, but just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else has a shrunken version.

Ha ha..they don't like their snuggles interrupted!

Sandee said...

I'm not thinking they were all that impressed with you. I find that hard to believe, but they are a couple of awww worthy cutie pies.

Have a purrfect Awww Monday. ☺

They don't look ready for their close-ups.

Josie Two Shoes said...

Those little half-open eyes tell me they were snuggled up and nicely snoozing before the lady aimed her camera in their direction. They have that same annoyed look my cats give me whenever they see my phone in close range! :-)

joeh said...

I used to get that look a lot...from my second wife!

Kathe W. said...

Rock a bye babies! They are just pretending to be bored!

Arti said...

You are a brave soul to survive those stares!
I'd be a puddle of panic:)
Just came by to say thank you for your visits to my blog and for your very informative posts in April. I know I've said this before--but I'm in awe of someone who can blog daily.
