Cats and tents on 01/14/2011 16:27:19 MST Print View

My cats like tents.
Pip is always very keen to help when I set them up , her mother, Lucy, does not care for that much but she likes to sleep in them.
About 10 days ago I set up the Moment and because it started raining and rained for days I just left it there.
Lucy found the inner unzipped so she took up residence, night and day.(she is about 19)
Two days ago I took the Moment down and found Lucy sleeping in the same corner in the now pretend tent.
A Lucy moment
This morning she was there on top of an hessian bag that I put out to dry a couple of meters away from that.
Did not bother taking a picture of that because I thought that my wife had put the bag there but turns out that Lucy put it there, again in the same spot and slept on top of it...

So, you're saying you made Lucy homeless.

I hope you're proud. ;-)

Yes, when I took that shot (through the kitchen window) she had just got up from the spot ( bottom right of the yellow green area) and she is looking at me with that "what was that for " kind of look.
She normally sleeps in a corner next to the pond under the bouganvilla tree. Well protected and lots of soft leaves for her there.

My cat sleeps a lot--Tiny Tim at 14 lbs- He always comes to the backyard when I set up my tarp.

I have the same problem. They will go under a tent, inside the tent. Heck when I lay out one of my WM bags inside the house, they want to burrow in. Nice Seal Point Siamese Jay!

My sister's cat, Mary Jane...

Was a very nice cat that lived about 15 years.

camping cat on 01/14/2011 18:48:51 MST Print View

This one showed up at night by the fire when my friend Lane (who some of you know) and I were camping along the Yuba River. She spent the night with Lane in his tent (REI QuarterDome I think) and then came home with us. Lane's wife found her a home with a nice lady in San Francisco where she is now enjoying a significantly spoiled life.campkiki
