"Makes Me Smile" Monday

This is our neighborhood stray/barn cat, and he is our yard's bouncer !! We see him a few times a week, sitting on our patio or by the barn, just watching the festival of critters that takes place in our yard. He's a very friendly guy, too, and chats with Tibbs once in a while. And Jack has dubbed him Satchmo.

Being the hefty boy that he is, he helps keep our critter population in check. . . and this makes us smile . . . except when we actually see him flogging a critter !!

Here's hoping your domain is well-protected, too !!

what an awesome beastie! I just want to grab him and rub my face on that tummy! Ok, maybe that was too much information, but he makes me smile too!

wow! satchmo may actually be bigger and fluffier than my gatwick.

nice new blog design and photo, by the way.

Yeah, Satchmo is a big boy . . he's about twice as big as Tibbs ! Sometimes I want to just give him a good brushing, and make him pretty and fluffier !!

Glad you like the new look . . . time for a change !
