N is for Nature (and Nimble)

Click to see theme
Ah, Nature! I love nature, and I love that my cats and dog love nature. I know that the cats have scent glands in their cheeks, and they like to rub things such as leaves with their cheeks to mark their territory, but they also love the way it feels. I mean, look at little Gracie here. She really, really loves her log. In fact, all the kitties love the natural logs I have laying in the yard for them. They also love rubbing their cheeks on the leaves, climbing the trees, and just being generally surrounded by nature.
I've made this gif available on this Tumblr post.
I have to include one more photo (a still one this time) of Cheetah in the pear tree, because it's one of my favorite pictures.
N is also for #Nimble. I used to be incredibly nimble when I was a teen. We used to have a clothesline in the backyard when I was in grade school and junior high, and I used to do all sorts of gymnastics tricks on it. I was obsessed with that thing. Well, I finally decided to buy a chin-up bar. I already dug the holes and bought the cement. I just have one step left!
My N for last year was "#Nothing (#Boston #Bombings)":


  1. I want to be that cat having a good roll around and head scratch. Luxury of making yourself feel great. And the pear tree cat. . .got to have me one of those to play peek-a-boo with.

    1. Oh, yes they are oh-so-happy! If you were a cat, you would definitely live in the lap of luxury around my house, LOL! :) Thanks for stopping by again!

  2. Stopping by on the 17th day of the #atozchallenge having a wonderful day visiting folks like you. We are without animals and loved sharing your cat for a few minutes. If you have time or interest, I am writing about gardening and related topics this month. Come and visit.

    1. I LOVE your blog! Thanks for checking out my kitty! :)

  3. Kristen,

    The pic of your cat in the flowers is gorgeous! I love those gifs too. I'd like to make some with my cats.


  4. Cheetah is the pear tree looks so cute!
