Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 197

Welcome to the 197th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

I figured that there are many cat lovers among you and I was definitely not disappointed by all the great cat photos that I got to enjoy this week! On top of that there were some really creative approaches that you brought to play. All of your posts were a lot of fun to peruse and view.

Thank you for all the wonderful posts!! Please share your appreciation with one another!

Here’s another view of Cashew…

Cashew flexibility

Cats will twist themselves into just about any direction, and Cashew is no exception. In this shot, you get to see a bit of his length at 6 months… He’s going to be a big boy!

Please enjoy the following blog posts:

  1. Kammie has a wonderful set of cat photos in her post in Nut House Central, which makes me wonder who is in charge in the Nut House?

Lazy Sunday Morning

Noodle relaxes well!

Sometimes, it’s nice to just kick back and relax on a Sunday morning, while the weather passes.  There’s one member of our household who’s very good at this…

It’s a tough cat life…

This is Noodle, our useless cat.  She’s not much of a mouser (ignores them), she spends most of her day lying around somewhere, insists in getting all over your keyboard when you’re trying to type, and only speaks up when she wants something from you.  Of course, that could just be the definition of the word ‘cat’.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
