Southern California cats making the most of the sunshine



As much as I enjoy lurching out into Los Angeles with the sole purpose of exploring neighborhoods and taking photos, I do have other areas of my life that need attention. So right now I have to restrain myself until I get caught up with some other business and personal matters.

In the meantime, here is a photo of my 18 1/2 year old Tuxedo cat Friday. He is an indoor cat by choice and rarely takes the opportunity to sit out on the deck or balcony. But he likes to follow the sun around the house and sometimes it’s hard to tell where the sun ends and the cat begins!

On the other hand, my eight year old champagne tabby cat Pharoah lives out on the roof deck most of the day and on the front balcony in the evening. But as a southern California cat, if the temperature dips much below 70F (21C) he prefers to stretch out on the day bed in my office. I know the feeling.

Pharoah has the uncanny ability to take naps standing up. I have seen him do this for up to an hour without moving a muscle.

So, as my cats’ lifestyles are so different, not to mention their temperaments, they pretty much stay out of each others’ way.

I am an explorer and creative person. I've had many jobs, careers and interests... everything in life and the universe fascinates me. Born in Brighton, England, I've lived my entire adult life in Los Angeles, California. A few years ago I rediscovered photography which is a great excuse to get outside and look. I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

    • Pharoah is a sweetie…. a feral cat with some health issues still trying very hard to be a domestic cat after living here more than eight years.
