Curtain Cleaning Tip: Lining fabrics can rot due to Ultra Violet (UV) damage. This may not be noticeable until the curtains are taken down.

  1. Fabulous – as always. Many thanks. Caterday is the best 🙂 No. 10 is a bit scarey.
    I hope you don’t think I am being too forward, but, have you considered doing a shoes that look like cats/have cat features/remind you of cats blog. I have a pair of cat shoes that I would love to share with the world (via your site), if you are up for it.

  2. I love these. I don’t know why I never thought of taking pictures of any of my cats when they get behind the sheers in the front window. It sure makes for some cute pictures. I see more cat pictures in my future! 🙂

  3. lol I have an afghan draped over one of my chairs. My cat loves to crawl into said chair and hide behind it, like the kitties hiding behind the drapes in your post.

  4. No8 is my favourite! I’m a dog person too but it’s hard to resist your posts on Caturday…

  5. hehe, why are they so adorable? I don’t even have a cat because Simba hates them but I love seeing photo’s of them. LOL! Thanks for sharing Russell. 😀

  6. And there’s no chocolate in it, right? Well, okay..sigh…I do like Chocolate Labs….

    ROFL!
    (Yes, I’m sure you’re tired of the chocolate thing, but I’m still having fun – okay to continue? 😛 )

  7. reminds me of playing hide and seek with kids, there is always at very least, a foot hanging out of their hiding places )

  8. I love the vicious cat talk along with the supremely beautiful gentle faces. You’re a lucky guy, they’re all gorgeous. One question. How is you have all that pristine gauze fabric and brocade and it has not been rendered to bits.
