    Default Cat in the basket....

    This is Arthur, my 9 month old scandinavian-european mixed breed cat. The nordic parent accounts for the bushy tail, thick coat. It even has fur stinking out between its toes, so he can walk on ice and snow without freezing its paws off (of course you cannot see this in the pictures)

    Love the pictures -- The first picture looks like he's really snoozing well or really comfortable! It's amazing some of the positions cats get into and their are comfortable in. I've got two cats as well - my two are Snow Tiger (aka Lynx) Siamese. I love seeing other peoples companions - thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful cat. I've got two (brother and sister, thought they don't look alike. They must have different fathers), 5 ˝ month old now. Beside the cats I also have a Yorshire Terrier, 1 year old now.

    Thanks for the praise
    My Arthur is quite a character. He is also a cat burgler, he carries around in the house different items ussally small items like socks, hankies, keys, jewerly, papers left on the table, but once tired to carry to his nest the tablecloth. Yesterday was a premiere, beaucause he stole one of my labrador' s toys (a heavy one at that). So everyone has to be tidy or risk loosing some of his/hers posesions.

    I swear orchid lovers seem to be cat lovers too. Don't see many posts about dogs that love orchids. Just cats who love to eat them or sleep on them, etc..... Not that I'm making fun of anyone, I have 4 of my own
