Some Cuteness This Way Comes

I had a post ready to go and guess what!?

Compared to this, what I had in mind was pretty lame.

This is what was going on first thing this morning:




Trapper, the golden retriever who has now become part of the ever-growing rectory family, had given up his bed so Mitty would be comfortable.

Glad we snapped this before somebody woke up. You all know that either one of these guys could have moved at any moment and the cuteness would have been hiss-tory!

For you Tinker fans out there, here's a little springtime snoozing from the Big Puss.






And, of course, here's Mitty again (he's still gazing out in wonder at spring, including a robin)



A mouse with wings?




A whole flock of tender and juicy robins landed outside the rectory, singing and digging for worms. The birds looked extraordinarily plump. They must have had their trip north catered.

Of course, you can see how interested I am in all the goings-on.



Have fun, Mitty. I think I'll check my bowl for food I don't have to catch.




So, there you have it. Friendships grow stronger and Mitty's still upstaging me. When he's old enough, I'll tell him to go and get his own blog.

Blessings and have a good weekend, furriends!

Its funny, I think I have more pictures of my kitties napping than any other pose...they can be just so darn CUTE! :)

Fuzzy Tales said...

Trapper giving up his bed for Mitty is just so sweet. Dogs will do that...can't say cats will give up their comfy spots for anyone else, unless they're pestered to. LOL.

Happy weekend to you all!

Mr. Pip said...

I give up my bed for my feline sisters all the time ...though sometimes I don't have a choice in the matter.

Your pal, Pip

Awwww gorgeous Mitty RULES!! Well over Trapper - who is so adorable too!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

That's a very nice shot. Sometimes when such opportunities present themselves, it can be hard to decide whether to risk grabbing the camera and have the furries move or just sit there and soak in the scene.
Enjoy your Bird TV, Mitty!

How kind of Trapper to give up his bed for Mitty - he is a very thoughtful gentleman dog.

No one could upstage you! Those plump birds are God's creations and you want to eat them? HAH! I almost had myself believing that. Have you submitted pics for Real Housecats, yet so we can work toegether?

Rumpydog said...

I love those pics. Lots of cuteness going on in the rectory!

Julia Williams said...

Awwww...Trapper has a heart of gold! These pics made me smile. Thanks!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Are you SURE Trapper gave up that bed voluntarily? Because even though Mitty's little, he does have claws to boop a doggy's nosicle!

Marg said...

That looks like our house. The cats shoo the dog off of her bed so they can have it the dogs are always nice about it. Mitty, you are such a lucky kitty to have such a good home. Hope all of you have a great week end.

We think its sweet how well you all get along!

Jewel said...

Kizzie probably wouldn't say no to a robin, but she seems to prefer sparrows at the moment.

sagechronicles said...

Haha. Trapper knows who rules the roost!

meowmeowmans said...

That Trapper sure is a nice woofie! What a cute picture of him and Mitty sharing. :)

Looking good, Tinker. And Tom ... we're with you, pal. We like watching the birds and squirrels and all, but food seems to magically appear in our bowls, so we'll stick to those. :)

Hugs to you all, and Julie, too!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Just dropping by to say hello, and by the way, that robin looks delishus.

Mitty has caught on early that the resident cats always run the house. There are 3 dogs next door but the cat Tippy is high exalted ruler there.
