Sitting pretty

I walked into the kitchen very early this morning and this is what I saw.

I was afraid to startle darling little Tiger Lily, that bad little kitty, so she wouldn't jump down and knock my antique bowl over onto the tile floor. My sister, mrsgreenthumb, sent me that beautiful bowl several years ago for my birthday and it is one of my prized and favorite antique glass pieces. I have collected several other amberina pieces (there are more behind little kitty).

Can you see my Kitchen Witch whispering to Tiger Lily not to break my bowl?

I got her out of the bowl without breaking it (after I managed to get a couple of shots of her looking so innocent). I proceeded to place a cup with pointy things in it in the bowl to discourage her from returning to it.

My friend Rosa down in Tennessee posted several photos of her kitties sitting in unusual places on Sunday. You should check it out.

How can you be mad at something so cute?

Your kitty is so pretty, she really doesn't look real. What a darling picture! Nice that you were able to keep your composure. :)

Actually, I think Tiger Lilly is pretty confident that she is right where she belongs! They have a knack for just going to a place where they know they shouldn't and flashing "that
look!"
Too cute!!!

Tiger Lily sure looks cute in your birthday bowl. I would be unhappy if it got broken. My cat does the same kind of thing. She especially likes a little basket I have with paper napkins in it. And they look at you with that expression, "Aren't I cute? Love me love me love me."

Tiger Lilly probably sleeps in that bowl. You were right not to startle her!
