The past week has been sunny and gorgeous, so the cats have been glued to the windows every morning watching and listening to the wildlife outside. I don’t usually manage to get pictures of them together, so ran for my camera when I saw them doing this one morning. Please note the matching cat-shaped dents on the back of this particular armchair.
