My cats in winter

Just over 1 week to Spring and even though yesterday the maximum temperature went up to 27C (81F), today it has dropped to a maximum of 16C (61F) minimum 6C (43F) and the rain has returned.
Still good for winter temperatures if you compare them to European or North American winters...but I do prefer warmer weather.

Of course cats know just what to do when it's cold, and our cats, Fluffy, Twiggy and Shelley are no exception. Sometimes they will be curled up on top of a blanket on the sofa, in their little igloos in our bedroom, but most of the time they prefer to sleep in our bed.

Linking to Sandee's blog for Feline Friday and Eileen's blog for Saturday Critters.

  Shelley and Fluffy play musical chairs, when Fluffy decides to bully Shelley out of her igloo. Then she just climbs into the blue bed next to it, which none of the cats usually use.

  3. Our cats sleep in different spots around the house depending on the time of year and where the sun is at. Sleep well!

    1. The igloos in the bedroom are by the window where they get the winter sun. In summer they tend to nap under the garden bushes where it's cooler.

  13. Our cats sleep just like that, curled up with a 'hand' over their eyes! Sometimes I turn the room lights off even though I may be reading or doing sometimes that needs a light!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. That is funny Lea that you turn off the lights for them. I think they still sleep very well with the lights on :) Have a lovely weekend too.

  20. Dearest Sami,
    Oh, we all no doubt ought to learn from our kitties as they know how to chill out and stay cozy!
    Love their do-not-disturb me position with one paw shielding their face; ours do that too.
    Yours and ours are spoiled stinkers...
    Hugs,
    Mariette
