Her Moment in the Sun

I was down the hall, in my office yesterday morning when I heard the most mournful cry. I dashed to the living room to see what was the matter with my girl. Mabel was standing at the back door, clearly looking at something... crying for it. But it was not her "critter cry." It was her "I want that" cry.

I looked out the door and realized what was up. She had noticed her softie rug was finally getting sun - something that hasn't happened in a few months on our Northern exposure back porch. I unfurled the crumpled rug which had been curled by the winds and Miss Mabel positioned herself just so.

It was a happy morning of sunbathing! Don't you love her "No paparazzi while I'm sunbathing face???"

She is adorable AND smart! One of our cats is always after that sunny spot on the carpet and he always looks so happy there. Plus, doesn't it make their fur so nice and warm? I love that!

How sweet!!! Phantom loves to sit in the sun too, but he likes to do it on the carpet:)

Mabel has such a sweet face.

Good thing you speak Mabel and could understand what she wanted.

Laura loved sun bathing too!!! I always wondered whether she got too hot to herself as her black coat absorbed heat faster and more easily.
Mabel is so cute there!

Let's review...she does math, she talks, she is the only being ever to be able to train Gizmo about staying away from fences...oh, she has 9 or 10 beds. Mabel Lou, you're a pretty smart girl!
