Cinnamon is supposed to be on guard, but she forgot...sound asleep!



She's awake here (after the first pic) but hasn't moved. Hey she was just resting her eyes!



Notice how her front legs dangle over the front of the stool. somewhere I have a picture of her all curled up on top of a smaller foot stool when she was a 3 months old. I'll have to find that. there's a story there, too!

I see she has her ferocious face on too. Keeping ghoulies away is hard work. She should have had a treat with her nap :D

Now a question. I see in the right of the pic an ice cream parlor wrought iron chair. I have the same ones. Have you ever had problems with pets getting toes caught in the legs where they form a "v"? Let me tell ya, it's not a fun thing to happen. Muffin likes to sit on them at the table and tease Dex, and he's jumping up at the seat to get Muffin, and as his feet come down, he has gotten caught. They scream and cry and it's a scarey moment. You gotta do sort of a reverse karate chop, coming from underneath and freeing the toe upward. With a dog it's fairly easy. But a cat writhes and whirls and bites and claws, and they nearly break a leg before you get them free. I'm considering putting duct tape around mine just so they can't get a toe down all the way. Might not look great, but I don't want any toes getting caught while I'm away. Just curious as to whether it's happened with your chairs yet?

I haven't had any problems with mine - it's a child size. It used to be my Mother-in-law's when she was a child. Needless to say, Cinnamon has never been able to get into the chair, let alone get a foot caught. I can see where it would be a problem though. I don't know if tape would help that or not. I guess you could try it and see. Good luck!

You know she'd be awake in a moments notice to save the day....it's part of the technique in the doodle handbook!! Jonah's in the front window like that everyday waiting for me to come home from work!

Yeah, well she's pointed toward the tree where she chased a squirrel once. You never know if it will be back! and yes, she almost caught it, ran right past another squirrel trying to catch the first one, while squirrel #2 was running behind #1. Now that's a fast 'doodle! Squirrel #2 was so shocked it was trying to back up and find another tree-it was like a cartoon! Cinnamon is a never ending source of entertainment!

Cinnamon is very beautiful and don't you love that look in their eyes as they start to drift off, I see that look also when they are eating something from your hand, it is the way they look up at you while eating. Just melts my heart. :) :) :)
