June 2009 Photo Challenge - Pets & sunbeams - Pets in the sun

June 1st, 2009, 09:51 AM
Can't believe June is tomorrow, but it is.

Any suggestions for June that are good for both cats and dogs?

Thx - Marko

My first thought was water....but something tells me the kitties wouldn't appreciate that. :rolleyes:

Someone suggested last month (sorry can't remember who :o) to do "Pets in the Sun" and "Sunbeams" which would work for the indoor kitties. :thumbs up

Good one! I like that too :thumbs up

Love the pets in the sun Rainbow--great suggestion. :thumbs up

sunbeams work for me :cloud9:

or we could do the colour yellow :shrug:

Pets in the sun/Sunbeams has the most support so it's the theme of the month.
Merging suggestion posts now and changing the thread title.
Ok then who is posting first? Thx - Marko

Some of you will have seen this photo already, but it's my favourite picture of Charlie and he's lying in a sunbeam, so it works!

June 1st, 2009, 10:53 AM
I might have posted this before, can't remember...

"remember to use plenty of sunscreen"

June 1st, 2009, 12:09 PM
AHHHHHHHHHHHH.....Basking in the sun

June 1st, 2009, 03:13 PM
EOF, aww, cute pic of Charlie .....just makes you want to rub that fluffy belly. :cloud9:

Melinda, I love that pic of Brina :D ....there is absolutely no way either of my boys would allow me to dress them up like that. :laughing:

3GirlsDad, lovely pics of your big girls. :lovestruck:

June 1st, 2009, 03:36 PM
Rainbow, Poor Brina puts up with anything *L*

dad of, I adore the first shot!!

EndofFashion...makes you want to get down and roll in the sun!

June 1st, 2009, 04:01 PM
This is about 2 months old but one of my favs

June 1st, 2009, 04:02 PM
This is as close as my cats will ever get to the sun...

June 1st, 2009, 04:04 PM
Awwww, the drooly boys. :cloud9:

June 1st, 2009, 04:05 PM
Joeyjoejoe, that pic is sooo sweet. :lovestruck:

June 1st, 2009, 04:35 PM
ok thats it, I want to find a sunbeam to go lay in!! great pics!!

June 1st, 2009, 04:41 PM
Great start everyone - soooo cute.
Finally an easy photo shoot for Ziglet! I won't have to disturb his Royal Highness when i shoot this one. :laughing:

June 1st, 2009, 04:44 PM
LOL Marko!!!! Ziglet might enjoy this photo shoot

June 1st, 2009, 05:07 PM
Melinda- I think that may be a form of animal abuse:frustrated:... Guess she will just haaave to come and live with me now:D Pleeeeaaaaaaase! :pray:

Great shots everyone! love them all!

June 1st, 2009, 05:14 PM
Very sweet pics, especially the bathing suit :laughing::laughing::laughing:

I am so glad to see other furkids in the sun. Ginger is not much of a sun dog but will swim. Hobo HATES getting his paws wet much less swimming but he has been following this sunbeam around the dinning room/living room practically from the day he moved in...

June 1st, 2009, 05:21 PM
By lunchtime, he has followed the sunbeam all around until he can't lie in it anymore...this is one of my faves...

June 1st, 2009, 06:02 PM
Nap-inducing sunbeams are the best! Aztec with his sleepy-face on:

A half-hearted stretch........

The sunlight made it quite obvious that there were no treats in the treat-mouse:

June 1st, 2009, 06:49 PM
EndofFashion - dont believe ive seen ure kitty before! What a cuuuutie!

Melinda - Omg that pic is so cute with the visor & bathing suit! lol

M&M - always love your boys :cloud9:

Posted these before, but bunduk does love his sunbeams :lovestruck:



I'll try to get some of Onnie :thumbs up

June 1st, 2009, 06:50 PM
SCM- Aztec has such amazing eyes! WOW!

Diandpat - what a cutie patootie!!

June 1st, 2009, 11:58 PM
We only have four windows in my little apartment and one of the biggest ones is the fire exit and the table is next to it. the cats always sleep on the table when we were away and run when we came on home cause i didn't like them up there. well i gave up and here is one i got of serena enjoying her beam. she's such a pretty cat.

June 2nd, 2009, 06:51 AM
omg what a great subject for this month, these pics are all so wonderful!!

Onster, daughter was not impressed when she came outside to see what I was up to and saw her 4 legged sister wearing her bathing suit *L* made me wash it 4 times before she'd wear it again *L* the visor is a doggie one so I was safe there.

babymomma *L* not a chance of her going to live with you!! besides, you'd send her back so fast, she's a very "vocal" doggie, not barking...but talking, complaining, grumbling, I've never had a dog talk so much, and that includes our late husky with his yodels *L*

June 2nd, 2009, 09:36 AM
Great pics everyone, this month's challenge is a big hit with the kitties!!!
joeyjoejoe- I absolutely LOVE that picture!
I will have to see if I can dig up some sunbeam pics.

June 2nd, 2009, 10:08 AM
Wow! What great pictures! Too many to comment on but I am in love with those Dogue de Bourdeaux :lovestruck: and love all the napping kitties :cloud9:

Bailey: While she is no longer with us, this has always been my favorite pet picture. :rip: my sweet golden angel


Gryphon TRYING to be majestic in the sun


I guess Kitty should of had SPF50 lotion on before crashing in the window sill. Please ignore the scratched up window sill although this one is in better shape then our dining room one. :yell:

June 8th, 2009, 06:19 PM
marko is your kit reaching for a real high c note? looks like a tenor really belting in out

That would imply that he's actually expending energy. He's just yawning cuz he's tired from resting :D

June 8th, 2009, 06:33 PM
Marko...your kitty's colouring reminds me of a triple choc cake...beautiful...perhaps it is just time to eat sups. :rolleyes:

June 10th, 2009, 09:24 PM
I spotted Molly snoozing in a sunbeam this evening and couldn't resist.... :cloud9:

June 10th, 2009, 10:07 PM

I snapped a new one of Zoe last night enjoying the soft grass and a little sunshine.

June 13th, 2009, 01:57 AM
Great pics of everyones pets. It's wonderful to see them all enjoying the sunshine that has been so lacking this cold wet spring. Here's a couple of Baxter and Bentley. Baxter shies away from sun so had to get a pic of him at dawn. :laughing:


June 13th, 2009, 09:16 AM
We finally have sun!

June 13th, 2009, 10:55 AM
Love the pics everyone! Nothing better than seeing pups and kits enjoying the sun. :cloud9:

June 13th, 2009, 02:11 PM

June 23rd, 2009, 04:54 PM
Here is a few when Stella was young (march 2009)

June 23rd, 2009, 09:22 PM
OMG! OMG! So many neat sunbeam shots! I've just skimmed through fast because I haven't been on in awhile. The one that really made me stop and laugh was Duffy's mug shot in the sun! Pure pleasure! This challenge thread is one of the best!

June 23rd, 2009, 10:56 PM
A shot of the gigantic bunny rabbit that lost it's way and ended up in my SIL's backyard....enjoying the sun and a carrot :D

June 25th, 2009, 09:16 AM
