Just Kitties

I've spent the last couple of days out in the cat pen getting pictures of all the kitties.  We had this built onto the back of our house a few years ago and it's just been the greatest thing.  The cats can go outside and still be safe.  Here it is in all its rustic glory, it's not glamorous, but it does the job!  My hubby keeps wanting to mow inside of it, but the kitties have a different opinion, they love hiding in the tall grass.
Harley, pretending he's in the wilds of Africa.
Trixie, after indulging in a little bit of catnip.
Cricket, the alpha male on his throne {tree stump}.
Thoughtful Maggie, who's always quiet and very intelligent.
Tigger, standing by the home made cat door.
Sweetpea.  I couldn't get her to come outside for a picture.  She's 18 years old and spends 95% of her time on this pillow on our dresser in the bedroom.  We like to joke and say that she visits her friend in the mirror, a friend who's so much better behaved than the other kitties.
Harley, the social kitty who likes everyone and who has his humans wrapped around his fuzzy little paw.  I tried to take pictures that show a little bit of each one's individual personality and I hope they were fun for you to see.  Thanks for stopping in and indulging this besotted kitty mother who loves every one of her spoiled fur babies!

Beautiful cats. We toyed with the idea of building a cat-pen when we moved into our house but couldn't find a good place to locate one that wouldn't cause problems. We instead went with cat-proofing the entire yard. The raccoons do their best to destroy it so the time for upkeep and repairs is very high. When we move we'll definitely be going with a large pen of some sort.
