Weekly Pet Challenge: Five Photos, Five Stories

Black Beauty-020

Every morning when I get up the first thing I do is  open the curtains.  For several reasons.  Firstly it is to see what the weather is like – self explanatory.  I don’t rely on the weather forecast.  The most accurate forecast is to look out the window.  The second reason is to see if there is a good sunrise.  If so, then it is a matter of grabbing the camera and tripod and head on out.  Thirdly, is to see which cat it is that is watching over me.  So far I have found a couple of black cats, a couple of grey cats and a ginger cat.  I haven’t really seen the white cat much lately.

But I see cats around my house most of the day.  They come to say hello, maybe sit a while to enjoy the sun.  Then when they are ready they move on to the next house to check out.

This is for several challenges – Michelle’s Weekly Pet Share by Hope* the happy hugger and also for the Five Photos, Five Stories challenge.

So I would like to nominate Steve from Steve Says… to see what he can come up with. He has such a fresh quirky outlook on life and I am dying to see what he comes up with.

  1. Hi, friend!! I’m right there with you about observing Mother Nature to see what the weather is doing. I have stopped a long time ago listening to those who never get the weather right. LOVE this black cat by the way!! Great shot, Raewyn! Cats are not easy to capture. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤


  2. Beautiful picture and we love to read about your morning ritual. Granny is the weather reporter in our house, except when there’s a thunderstorm on the way, then I come in 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Wednesday 🙂 ❤


  3. You’re lucky that you don’t see cats until you open the curtains. I see them as soon as I open my eyelids. I usually have to open said eyelids as there is a cat licking them lol!


  4. No opening the curtains for us in the morning, nor closing them in the evening. That is because our backyard is totally private and we remove all window coverings the first day we moved in, over 3 years ago. It is great to wake up to the morning light, to fall asleep to the stars. Almost like camping out- but with all the amenities! 🙂 Love the story, and the cat!
