Cats on Tuesday: Charlie the Barn Cat

I went out to the barn Saturday morning to see if any damage had occurred over the winte when I heard a tiny tiny meow. I recognized Charlie's voice in the rafters of the barn. He had been sleeping and I had awoken him.  

He was so happy sleeping in the spring sun and warmth under the sky lights in the rafters of the barn. In fact, I have seldom seen Charlie with such a relaxed and gentle expression on his face.

Then I remembered: he had been born and spent his kittenhood in a barn in central Vermont. Barns feel like home. Warm barns and sunshine must be heaven for him.

  11. Charlie is a keeper for sure. I love to look at cat poses. They can be blase, innocent, mysterious, and loveable. Cats do indeed rule!

  15. I guess I have the advantage of some of your other visitors in knowing that Charlie is much more a housecat than a barn cat, but barns were designed with cats in mind, I think, and maybe vice-versa. The top shot was downright awesome, Andree. Good work!
