The photo above is Chessie during a crisp fall day while I was planting daffodil bulbs. He was wild and crazy that day, and only about 6 months old.
Chessie loves to "lay down and cuddle" which is about the only command he will do upon request. Here he is enjoying one of my vintage chenille bedspreads.
Above he is lazing on some of my barkcloth coverlets, with a bit of my Auntie Lyn's afghan showing behind him.
This is Cheshire Cat in one of his favorite windows. It looks out to the hillside on the west of our home, and the wild birds like to sit in the tree outside because there is a bird feeder right below it with sunflower seeds in it, so of course it is a great view for the cats. I often sit on the bed at the window and read or watch TV, and sometimes Chessie snuggles with me on the bed.
Chessie is an indoor-outdoor cat and enjoys all the lizards and warm rocks and other amenities the foothills have to offer him.
Chessie often tries to strike various attractive poses at different parts of our home to aid in my photographic ventures.
