Daily Photo Reprise: Kelly Greets the Day, 2012

tortoiseshell cat scratching wood
Kelly has a good scratch on the wooden steps.

Ahhh, a good stretch, a good scratch, fresh air and sunshine, the best after-breakfast treat for Kelly. She really showed that top step who was boss, and left enough pheromones behind to scare off a herd of neighborhood cats.

Something about dry wood under their paws has always inspired my cats to have a good scratch-fest. Mimi loves the deck railings, Cookie did too, and in the house my wooden ladder, one of the wooden braces on my old drawing table, and 2×4 lumber in the basement have all been christened by feline claws. Those old carpet-covered things? Eh…I took the carpet off and turned it around to expose the jute backing and that was a hit! but best of all they like the one I left as bare wood when I discovered the carpet had rubber backing. Yes, everyone should have a 4×4 in their dining room.

    That photo is so cute. We love how her furs are kissed by the sun. She looks like our Astrid. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
