and the winner is. . .

KUSH!  I recently found out that Kush was awarded Cat of the Month on Cats and Co blog. We both felt quite honored. This inspired me to treat Kush to a manicure and pedicure at the local vet’s. (I’ve never trimmed a cat’s nails before and this pampering was a treat for both of us.) Kush behaved like a perfect lady for the technician so it was a painless experience on her part. I am already enjoying the benefit of a cat without killer claws. I didn’t realize that they were getting out of hand until I started to feel like a human pin cushion. Now I won’t look like I’ve played in a forest of rose  bushes – in a sleeveless shirt no less.

Today I am sitting outside, enjoying my coffee with Kush resting beside my chair. She is wearing a harness attached to a leash attached to a huge long nylon loop which is secured to a chair. Kush is an indoor cat, and I certainly don’t want to be responsible for loosing her in the great outdoors. I wanted her to be able to explore, but she seems quite content to rest in the shade and watch the world. Occasionally she stretches up to chew some grass in a flower-pot. Life is good. And just so you don’t worry about her getting tangled up in her restraint system, be assured I would not leave her out on her own. (I had to create the extension for the leash. I felt like an idiot following her around the yard, while she stopped to sniff and snoop every plant.) Of course now that she has a long lead, she hasn’t strayed more than 3 feet away from me. Silly cat.

After a couple of hours outside, we had to come back into the house. Kush decided to get comfy and have a rest in one of her favorite boxes.

  1. Wow, look at those eyes! I can see why she’s a winner 🙂


    1. She is very pretty indeed. I also don’t know how many cats entered the contest, but I’m okay not knowing!


  2. Well congrats! And here’s another one…I’ve enjoyed reading your blog, so I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine Blog Award! You can get all the info here:


    1. Wow! Thank you. This is my first award and I’m a little taken aback. But thank you!


  3. Cute Kitty! Fourth shot is refreshing.


    1. Thanks for that. It’s a jungle out there – especially when you are only 1 foot tall!


  4. You are one wonderful foster parent Terri – Kush is indeed a very lucky Kitty. To think she was treated to a pedi and manicure – I was just thinking of doing the same thing for myself….


    1. Thanks. I think you should treat yourself. Bet you won’t be able to get your treatments for less than $20. The princess is cat napping on my lap right now.


  5. I have a huge smile on my face after reading this post. Not only do I feel refreshed having lived vicariously through your sunny garden explorations, Kush is so sweet and beautiful that smiles just naturally come. Thank you! 🙂


    1. You are very welcome. I’m almost embarassed by how much fun it is having her around!


  6. great photos, and I think Kush is a deserving winner. Love the third and last photos !!


    1. Thanks! I just have to be careful that I don’t turn into one of those crazy cat ladies. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a crazy cat lady…


  7. That’s my girl! She looks so happy outside. Miss you both and keep up the good work kitty!


  8. Kush is adorable!
