Bench for catnaps

.
The neighborhood stray cats have taken over the young neighbors' little sitting corner.

It is too hot for the kitties to do much else than snooze in the shade.

A peaceful picture for Camera-Critter Sunday.

How lovely to have those catty nappers! I love cats. The benches are also great!

I am not sure I will seat on one of those benches... but I'll gladly post the picture on aBoB!

I know what the feeling is! :-)

What a sweet photo. Lazy days give us needed respite.

Dear Dina,
We love following your blog. We just bought a new home and in Malta we have the custom to give houses a name. We would like to give it a Hebrew name to honour God but since we have no knowledge of the Hebrew grammar we were at a loss. Then you came to my mind! Would you kindly tell us if Yahweh Mishkan (Yahweh's dwelling place) is good Hebrew?

Thank you so much
Isabel

I think this is a perfect place to take a cat nap. Nice photo.

Hilda said...

They do tend to take over almost everything in the neighborhood, don't they? Thanks for the smile, Dina.

Kate said...

The cats certainly have the right idea!

Pietro said...

Oh yes, funny picture!

It is the same here. Yesterday I found one in our shopping basket we forgot at the veranda..

Dina said...

Shalom and thanks to all.

VP, yeah, the furniture is quite gross. The young neighbor-renters should cut some weeds and remove from the sofa the rotting figs that fell from the tree.

Isabel shalom. I love houses with names.
If you want to use those two words, you have to reverse the order: Mishkan Yahweh.
I should inform you, however, that Jews do not pronounce the ineffable name. (IF Yahweh is really the right pronunciation; it is only a guess.) But YOU can if you want to.
An alternative would be Bet-El (Bethel), meaning the house of God.

Love it! Nothing better than a nap in the shade.

Cats are enviable creatures. We humans might do well emulating "some" of their behaviors -:)

I'd think everyone would want to snooze in the temps you've been suffering, Dina, not only the stray cats!
