SMELLS IN THE GARDEN

CATS ON TUESDAY




For the moment we really have a wonderful spring weather and we even could sit outside. Arthur who always loves company especially outside, walked around and sniffed a little everywhere. The grass has such interesting different scents ! All neighbour cats who walked through his domain, the mice and moles (I hope not) It's so good !

And suddenly he found a spot where it smelled extremely good !

He had to put his nose closer and closer and ....



He felt in love with this odor ! I don't know what it was and I didn't want to kneel down and put my nose on the spot too (Arthur probably would have hissed at me) but he put his neck on the spot.

and rolled around in it

and again and again





until finally he had drugged himself enough and returned to the terrace where he settled down for a well earned nap.

Oh, Arthur, you make your life so fun! Maybe there was a bit of catnip growing in that spot? Catnip always makes my kitties high. ;-) Excellent action shots of a kitty obviously transported into a different realm of being!

Oh, how exhausting for you, dear Arthur! LOL D :)

It's a great time for the cats. To discover the nature as they love it. And Arthur he knows how to show his joy. Great.

btw. Amazingly, I did find time to this important meme. Leaving for Cote d'Azur very early Wednesday. Tuesday is my B-day. ha-ha. A very quiete one...

seeing arthur sleeping is the most beautiful thing...

i love the pictures of him rolling about in the grass. what a character he is!

Jodi said...

I'm up early! Got lots to do tomorrow, will try to make some rounds later in the day.

What fun cats are! Rolling around outside, something Miss Lulu won't be able to do, I am afraid she will run off. We are still waiting for the nice spring weather! We are hit again with snow! Yuck!

How typically cat of Arthur! I love it. I'm glad you didn't sniff it because it was probably something disgusting (my cats roll in their kills!!). But that last picture of his nap? Precious! Have a wonderful week, Gattina! I am ready to about give up my soul for green and not white!!

Kuanyin said...

Could you send me the code again? It has completely disappeared from my sidebar leaving only a blank box! I wonder what is going on! Argggh!

Angelo said...

What was it Arthur? Catnip? Nermal loves his catnip too and rubs his face and neck in it... although Nermal does the same thing with my socks! So I'm glad you didn't put your nose to check what it was Gattina :) Good job with the napping Arthur! Happy Tuesday!

Kuanyin said...

I just checked, and now I have your blogroll TWICE! oh boy!

Mom of three said...

Now, if Arthur was a dog, we know he would be rolling in something foul smelling. But as a dignified kitty, it must have been something very lovely and nice indeed. A nap well earned!

DK & The Fluffies said...

Sophia loves to roll in the grass also.

srp said...

Oh, Arthur has the sweetest expression on his face when he sleeps. Did you ever figure out what it was he was crazy about?

Dragonheart said...

It looks like you were having lots of fun Arthur! :) Grass has very interesting smells! Yesterday it was nice and warm here, so I was able to go outside on my harness and in my stroller. You are very brave to venture outside alone!

Luna said...

Great pictures , Gattina !
It is so cat-like and typical !
If Arthur were in our garden, he would take the lilac bush at the pond. There the cats always stand and sniff the smell other cats leave there.
Arthur is an beautiful cat !
Have a nice tuesday !

I love the white cat on the green grass so much. One of my cats loves to eat grass (we grow it for her because in Florida, you can't let cats run around outdoors). Arthur is such a beautiful kitty.

I'll be visiting the other kitties later on...

Kuanyin said...

Aloha...it's finally fixed! Only one blogroll for COT at last, and my new COT posted too! It was ONE of those days for me I guess! Whew!

Salix Tree said...

Sleeping after an exhausing smellathon! He looks so sweet asleep.

Puss-in-Boots said...

Probably catnip, it's like cat marijuana!

Faz the Cat said...

We have this in our grass too, it's a moss that grows under the grass and has a similar effect to catnap. When I bury my nose in it it makes me go all wild eyed and run around and around the garden like a mad thing. I love it. FAZ

Luna said...

What was it Arthur?

Author still managed to look dignified!

Kim and Oscar the Puppy Cat said...

Wow, that must have been some scent!

Beaman said...

Nice site. I happened to write a poem today about my cat, Nigel and an incident in the garden. Thought it would be interesting for Tuesday Cats. :)

Irish Church Lady :) said...

Um.... Gattina, I think he was rolling in poo.

LOL

My Cats on Tuesday is up, rather late I know!

Karen Jo said...

I'm hoping that Faz is right and it's a moss that smells good to cats, rather than something stinky to humans. I guess you'll find out when he comes in for the night.

Just Sharlene and My Spice Cats said...

Haha...I wonder what is the odour that Arthur is so engrossed about!
