A cat bench

.
Kittens need a bench to sit on (or under), too.
This rugged bench is for RuneE at Visual Norway who invites us all to share our benches every Friday.
In case you are wondering why a tree branch with a shelf on it is protruding through the bench . . .
it's because this is a work-place for an artist neighbor. See his paintbrush on the shelf?
Here is one of his Etong construction block sculptures in progress.
.
Camera-Critters weekend meme is starting early this week. Over a hundred bloggers contribute interesting animal shots. Have a look or join us.

What a beautiful piece, your neighbor has a real gift.

This was a one of the kind, and I appreciate the setting. It must be the kind of thing well suited for an artist.

Thank you for the link - it looked very well for its purpose and I left a comment.
