Feline Friday – #122 – every day is Friday


With most of us sheltering in place it seems every day is Saturday, every day is Sunday, every day is Tuesday and every day is Friday. So that lets me off the hook having to upload Feline Friday on the day formerly known as Friday! Right?

How many cats do you know who have their own cat-size chair? One spoiled feline here. Actually, my mother had this chair custom made for her so she could sit and reach the ground… maybe to tie her shoe laces… who knows. Anyway, it works for Frankie!

Can you find the cat in the photo above? Yep, there he is hiding under the throw covers on the rocking chair. If I can’t find Freddie anywhere in the house I know to look here.

Trader Joe’s is no longer allowing customers to bring their own reusable bags during the pandemic. The last time I actually ventured into a store to buy food was a while ago. But when I did I came home with five paper bags. I threw them on the floor as I unloaded and of course it only took Frankie a nanosecond to appropriate them for his own usage!

I covered the chair cushions on the chairs that Frankie likes to sleep on with towels to keep them free from cat hairs. For whatever reason, he wasn’t interested in the chair by the stairs so I didn’t bother to cover it. I temporarily placed my shopping bag on the chair and went upstairs. When I came back down this is what I saw. He has now taken over the bag and the chair. The master must be obeyed.

You may not want to believe me but Frankie is sleeping in this position on the stairs. I tried to get his attention but he wouldn’t budge. I went up to my office to get my camera and came back down… he was still in the same position and stayed this way for quite awhile as I was walking around from the bedroom to the bathroom and up and down the stairs. Can we all say “cat nap”….

Freddie just wanted to have the last word as that doesn’t often happen for him living with Frankie the Bully. I must have a million photos of him lying on the keyboard. Of course this only happens when I’m working on the computer. No self-respecting cat would lie on the keyboard when their human is off doing something else. It’s a losing battle for sure.

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 I'm also in the process of re-writing some of my unpublished short stories and possibly a novel. .

  1. Glad to see Frankie is keeping himself amused whatever day it may be. We passed laws that ban plastic bags and now I have a pile of assorted cloth type bags they don’t want us to use!


    • I just read that our Guv either already has or is going to temporarily relax the law on plastic bags… and we can’t even recycle the darn things.

      • I had a cat with his head thru the handle and bag on his back like a cape running through the house. Those bags are a menace. Normally I cut the handles but one slip up and you know what happens! unrrecyclable here as well. . . .

      • Yes Greg. I’ve had the same problem. Even without handles, plastic bags are a danger as cats can get twisted up in them, unlike paper bags. And then there’s the wildlife that die horrible deaths because of plastic bags. I went to the supermarket last week and brought home my groceries in plastic bags… I felt like a criminal. At least Trader Joe’s is using paper bags. I wonder if we’ll every be allowed to use our own personal shopping bags in this lifetime.


  2. Your kitties do really live in cat luxury style. They are well loved.


  3. Great photos, Roslyn! I think Freddie is ready to finally write that book…or maybe you can. A children’s book featuring your cats perhaps? ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you’re doing well.
