Figaro was a very good hunter, but he didn't bring much of is loot home. He killed to eat, not to bring gifts to his humans. And he would eat whatever his big brothers brought home as well!

The king of relaxation! Sylvester had it down to an art.

Their first ever taste of snow. NOT acceptable. Not at all.

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

It was very very hard to go skiing with Ringo. He was super enthusiastic, but it was all about trying to murder the tips of the skis, making it very hard to move!

Such a tiny, lovable little creature Oliver was. And then... well... not so lovable ;P

Monday, December 12, 2016

This is why we can't have nice things. Especially not plants.

Some cats looks better in the "wild" than others! Figaro didn't think the wild was for him though, he hardly ever left the garden. Had to be within earshot of the fridge door!

 A couple of sprays from the liquid catnip bottle, and suddenly it's playtime!

Saturday, December 3, 2016

Tough as they might have been, my cats have never been big fans of snow. None of them. Outdoors and on the prowl all spring, summer and autumn, but walking in the white stuff? Nope. Not on a leash, not on their own. The year these photos were taken the snow came very early, and they were glad to be indoor cats.

Boo gave up on washing his paws back into bright white every day when he was an outdoor kitty. Weird seeing him with dirt on him, he has always been so clean and well groomed!

Saturday, November 12, 2016

Sylvester was such a star, so full of himself, such a lover and a flirt with everyone! He had many girlfriend cats and demanded cuddles from all kinds of strangers outside.

Our little foundling! If you want to know who this is and what happened to him, read the book! =)

Norwegian cats don't automatically like snow. I haven't had one that did. No matter how much they have been outside in the summer they have never been outdoor cats in the winter, insisting on being inside full time as soon as the snow started falling.

Sleeping in the washing machine, for some reason THE place to be for these two kittens. This is why I've always counted kitties before turning the washing machine on for so many years...

Friday, November 4, 2016

Ringo quickly found a lot of stuff to hunt inside when he became an indoor cat. No plant and no string was safe!

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Boo didn't really look at home in the outside world, so ... white. And when the world turned white, he refused to go outside ;P

Friday, October 28, 2016

Sylvester had loads of fun with autumn! Everything moves in the wind =)

Everyone loves Animal Planet! Especially Sylvester.
Very old photos! Very old TV ;P Our current one is somewhat more modern and larger. Which makes it even more funny when they try to hunt some tiny animal that is suddenly 50" big.

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Sylvester didn't understand why we took Boo into our home, but he thought it was a task for him to handle! It's not like I expected him to take on so much responsibility, but I wasn't surprised. He did the same thing with Figaro.

Monday, October 24, 2016

Eating has always been a peaceful activity around here. No matter how many cats that had to share one plate of something smelly and tasty!

Saturday, October 22, 2016

Figaro, Sylvester and Ringo could look nice and pretty, but didn't always ;P

Thursday, October 20, 2016

Boo was such an adorable little thing! Hard to photograph since he was so incredibly active, but I did manage some shots =)

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Figaro never liked to be photographed inside. He'd pose like a champ outside, but squint like mad inside.

Sunday, October 16, 2016

Going to the toilet alone at our house? Haha! No. Not guests, not residents. You'll have to plan it well to get privacy here!

Friday, October 14, 2016

Biiiiig yawns! Cats yawn a lot. Capturing it on camera isn't as hard as it looks. Some of them you can even get to yawn if you yawn first! Love the whiskers forward action that often happens =)

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Worming on the warm veranda floor in the mornings is an important part of the routine =)

Monday, October 10, 2016

Cat beds? No need. They will find whatever other places to sleep! The more expensive the cat bed the less likely they are to use it anyway. Buy a door mat or give them a piece of paper and they would rather sleep on that!

Sunday, October 9, 2016

I've tried many times to take nice Christmas card photos of my cats. Hasn't always worked out... These didn't make it ;P

Saturday, October 8, 2016

A new scratching post is always a big hit! I've stopped buying these cheap, flimsy ones though. Not worth the money, they are not cheap at all in the long run! I now buy a brand with parts you can change out when they are scratched to bits. And the sisal rope is voven, so it's not so easy for them to destroy anyway.

Thursday, October 6, 2016

The camera is tasty! My cats have never met a camera strap they didn't want to chew.

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Young cats outside! The stripes enjoyed it, Boo... well... he is more of an indoor cat.

Sunday, October 2, 2016

Belly fluff! All the belly fluff =) Totally wasted on a cat that won't let you touch it, but with Thomas there was a 24h all access pass! I hear he is not like that anymore, too bad for his current owners! I at least got my fill while he lived here!

Friday, September 30, 2016

Thomas looking like a dark silver fox!
Simple scrapbooking page made for a competition challenge, that I won! First and only time I've participated in something like that.

Zimba used to wear a collar with a really loud bell on it. Norwegian for "jingle" is "bjell". We could hear him from far away, jingling all the way home! So of course we called him "bjellbjell".

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Bags are all the rage! Cheap fun! You just have to make sure they don't get stuck. Cutting the handles is a good start.

Sunday, September 18, 2016

A pile of cats would always include Oliver. Because cats are made from warm, and Oliver always liked warm!

Some toys are just instant favorites. Sylvester loved that thing to death and beyond!

Monday, September 12, 2016

How can you resist such a cute thing? Seriously, I have no idea. Clueless!

Saturday, September 10, 2016

One cat does not just come with one face! They are so expressive =)

Oliver had a sweet nickname that I don't really know how to explain, or remember how we came up with. A google image search for "pludi" comes up with a lot of photos of flooding streets! 

King Zimba of the veranda!

Boo playing with a feather on a stick, making all kinds of silly faces =)

Figaro out in the snow, and not liking it one bit!
