Cat napping in the autumn sun

On my Sabbath stroll this afternoon in the moshav, everywhere cats were half dozing in the last rays of the sun, fully enjoying the warmth before the chilly (down to 8 degrees C) night.
Cats are so smart.
At the dairy goat farm
and at the monastery.

Pay a visit to Camera-Critters this weekend to see more animals around the blogging world.

I keep telling myself I am going to start taking pictures of the cats I see in windows...but then I wonder what the people that live in these houses would think if they saw me taking the pictures and that puts a halt to it.

Anyway, I like these you took of the cats just being cats.

The places they find to chill, I mean warm themselves. :)

Cat napping in the sun, I'd love to do that now. Nice shots :)

Eki Akhwan said...

Are they feral cats, Dina? They look well fed and beautiful.

Misty Dawn said...

They look so comfy! Wish I could join them!

Dina said...

Rose, if cats are in windows it seems like an invitation to photograph them, no?

Indrani, good one! hehe

Twobarkingdogs, I enjoyed your two too.

Pietro, that's for sure.


Bobbie, carpe diem, capture the rays--almost the same!

Merci Webradio.

Sherrie and Jedidiah, so true. Sometimes I wish my computer wires were just a little longer, then I could "work" outside in the sun.

Eki, well, they are no indoor cats. Not many in Israel are. But these seem to have adopted the right humans: merciful monks and dairy goat farmers.

Misty, yeah, it's a cat's life. Must be nice...

Kris said...

Are they feral cats, or pets?

Carletta said...

I'm a cat lover so these are great fun - I love the second one.
Having been around them for years they really are smarter than most people think.

I once heard cats referred to as "energy leaches", but I think they are simple "energy wise". Nothing better than a happy cat.

the donG said...

are those ordinary cats or of some special breed? seems like they're enjoying their siesta!

Urang Awak said...

Cat is always my favorite pet and your cats here are georgous! especially the standing one on the top. I bet he/she was looking straight at you when you were taking the shot.

Have a nice day Dina! I heard that you will be fying to Down Under soon, Enjoy the vacation and my warmest hugs for Eyal!

I hope that you had a great Sabbath. I know that I did. It is quite cool here. We had a freeze last night. Just the second one of the fall.

Louise said...

As one of my cats was lying in the sun today, all I could think about was that I wish I were a cat!

Tootie said...

Very cute photos of the kitties. I loved the photo above, it is very interesting. Have a great week!

Torsdag said...

Nice to see one more "cat-post".
It is getting cold at night in our area and the cats like to stay at home.
