It’s Caturday, once again! Here’s Gidget, soaking up some of today’s sunshine in our little courtyard. (Well, actually this photo was taken in a shady spot, but she had been soaking up the sunlight.)

Gidget says I can’t use my computer chair today 😢

Update: The computer chair situation has been resolved. At 9:16am she got the zoomies and bolted to the kitchen 🤣

Usually I forget all about Caturday until I see all the North Americans’ Caturday posts on Sunday, but this time I am PREPARED 😅 Most of my recent Gidget pictures are snaps of her hilarious expressions of RAGE when she sees birds in the backyard, so that’s what you get. Enjoy!

I have a bit of a backlog of Gidget photos now, but rest assured, she’s doing well 😅 She LOVES my new office chair (seen here rolling about playfully on it), and she’s also letting Viv sleep in to the late hour of 6:30am now she doesn’t have to diet any more 😭

When the weather was nice on the weekend we took Gidget for some outside time. She spent about 20 minutes on our neighbour’s AC exhaust unit soaking up the sun, then went to a shady spot (not pictured) to cool down for ten minutes, then went to said neighbour’s front porch to camp out there. The whole time she was stealing glances at the next neighbour’s front door, to see if their cat was noticing her assert her dominance 🤣

Today’s been a beautiful day weather-wise, sunny and 19°. I’ve been out soaking it up this afternoon, and Gidget did the same from her windowside cat bed – she didn’t even have to deal with the wind from there 😆 It’s so rejuvenating.

That feeling of power you get when your cat has been nagging for food for three hours and you just go to the kitchen to heat up your own lunch and give the cat nothing 😎 (DW, she had her full breakfast this morning, she’s fine)

Gidget was OUTRAGED to see this total stranger tabby cat taking a jaunty walk through her yard! The other cat was VERY intrigued to see us through the window, but Gidget sent ’em packing with a fearsome display snarling and scratching at the window 😂 Poor other tabby.
