Dutch cats posing


Perhaps because it was so sunny, but it looked like all the windows in all the houses - and even shops - had a resident cat. Some where merely ornamental, of course,

But others appeared to be quite happy to sleep among the shop's stock... perhaps the cat needed to sleep it off. Can you spot the cat in this window?

Some shop cats had slightly more artistic surroundings, like this one:

This domestic cat thinks it is in a magazine photo shoot - but then, wouldn't you if you lived in such an elegant interior?

This one appears to be tapping on the window to get my attention:

Having caught my attention, the cat duly struck up a pose:

I think I will have to upload these, and more, on the following flickr group: 'cats in windows' - there must be a flickr group for just about anything!

I would hazard a guess that Dutch cats are the luckiest of the feline world. Not only do they have double-glazed windows to protect them from the chill, but there are never any curtains to interrupt the view.

PS. Thank you both for your birthday wishes. You usually (and quite intentionally, I'm sure) make it ridiculously hard to work out which of you has been by to visit!

Another reason to love Holland..cats and tulip vases make a wonderful combination.

Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog. I am so happy that it has led me to your wonderful blog! I absolutely love vintage buttons and quilts of all kinds. What a feast for the eyes you have here!

Love these cats in the windows. Every shop should have a wonderful cat around to supervise and survey their kingdoms from the window seat!

Love all your button photos, and the cats are lovely, the little one tapping on the sweet is that.
