All such great shots. The Mal's normally avoid the sunbeams - more so I find them laying in the shade!

Marty can't stay in sun or heat too long. I like all the photos and the kittens are so sweet looking

Glad it worked Reg!

Carmy was shocked when she saw this post today. She thinks this shot was too revealing in a centerfold kind of way

Baci keeps posing for me - and this one gets a bit of The Twigster (Twiggy) as well.

That is quite a pose and the green blanket bring out the color of is eyes nicely . I have a blanket made out of the same fabric and Marty loves to lies on it , he think it's his and I got it for b-day present. Our pets are not shy about making themselves comfortable. That a cute photo of your cat sleeping .

Fun in the sun

Smokey loves nothing better than to be "it" in a game of doggy tag. Puck and Tigger give chase.

Wow, terrific photo's everyone. Groucho is so cute, Soundy. He has such a dear little face. Rick, your photo's are superb as ever and that 4th photo is a winner, Ruby is just drinking in the sun, the scents and the awesomeness of her life there. LOVE your wildflowers. You do realise that we have to pay for them here? LOL. Shiloh looks pretty happy, and very intelligent. Still can't go past those cat photo's though, they all look disgustingly like sun worshipers to me. Whoever has to pick a winner has a hard job.

These are all such beautiful shots. I'm missing my gang at the moment because I've moved but haven't found a house yet. They've been living with my brother-in-law since early June. Being able to look at all the pictures helps me feel less lonely - thanks.
