Gilbert the cat’s favourite new spot

These are some photos of Gilbert my Maine Coon cat on my shoulder when I am at the computer.  It’s his new favourite snoozing spot.


Happy New Year from Gilbert the Cat

Over Christmas and New Year most of us tend to overindulge, and this can be the unfortunate result.  The 7 stages of overindulgence as demonstrated by Gilbert.

Have a Happy New Year full of friends, fun, good health and happy memories!

My eyes are feeling a bit heavy.
I'm so full that I think I'll just have a little snooze.

Gilbert – Catnapper Extraordinaire

Today has been a pretty quiet, laidback sort of day, so I thought I’d post some photos of Gilbert  the Great doing what he does best – sleeping.  Despite his proximity to the whiskey on the nearby cabinet, he hasn’t been overindulging, he’s merely catching up on his beauty sleep.

More Pictures of Gilbert the Cat

 Today I thought I would just add some more pictures of our cat Gilbert.  He is largely Maine Coon and mainly an indoors cat, but enjoys supervised visits in our front yard. We live on a very
busy road, and he had only ever been an indoors cat when we adopted him, so we have expanded his horizons somewhat.  He had never climbed a tree when we first got him, and was very tentative at first, but is now a veteran, and loves climbing up the black wattle and giant black bean tree in our front yard.

He  loves sitting on the table on the front verandah
which has been netted so he can’t escape onto the
busy road outside our front yard.
