DYLAN: MY CREAMY DREAMY!








































Although our cat tree has three ledges on it -- one for each cat, no kitty ever sits anywhere except on top. The ledges are used, sometimes, as stepping stones to the highest seat in the house. So, here is Dylan as King of the Cat Tree (for the moment, anyway)!

The daylight allows me to take pictures of Dylan without a flash, and I find that the natural light indoors really softens his image. He practically blends in with the decor!

The cat tree is purrfectly pawsitioned for maximum viewing out the back and side windows of the family room. There is much to see out there, because squirrels and chipmunks are always running up and down the fence, and birds are constantly alighting in the branches of the trees which are only a few short feet from the window.

However, normally, the cat tree is used purrimarily for snoozing. After all, Dylan and his furblings need somewhere to rest after their outdoor excursions. And this way, they can still keep an eye (when it's open) on all the exterior happenings -- just so they don't miss anything (heaven forbid!).

Dylan did fall asleep after I was finished with my photoshoot. As you can tell by his direct gaze into the camera lens, he was quite aware that he was being photographed. I just love the creamy, dreamy effect Dylan takes on from the soft, mid-day light.

You can see that my kitties live a life of luxury whether they are inside or out. After all, they have their human servants to cater to their efurry whim. And believe me, they have whims! They are altogether too whimsical sometimes. A meow or a howl from one of them, and we all come running to ask them what they want.

In this case, however, Dylan wants for nothing, and is just content to finish his modelling task and fall asleep.

P.S. Dylan gives a shout out to his darling fiance, Kikyo. He says he'll see you in his dreams!

Very amazing windows! For some reason we like the middle perch on our tree...and on the same tree that we have in the shop for Cecilia and Madison, Cecilia is always on the top perch.

That looks like such a cozy place to nap. I can see why your kitties enjoy it. Those are some cool pictures of Dylan.

Aww Wendy he is a handsome mancat - Just as Dante is...

What would make that first pic better is having all three of the kitties in the picture!

Those windows are ideal to snoopervise from. We have two ledges on our cat tree too, (three if you count the den at the bottom) but we both only like to sit on the top one. Dylan, you are very handsome there.

Whitey does not have a cat condo... yet. Gandalf and Grayson have one, but they use ALL of the shelves. The top shelf is for nice naps. The middle shelves are used mostly for playing. The very bottom is for Assuming the Treat Position! Whitey can not wait for a condo of mai own!
