    Our cats are weird. Well, it's said they take after their owners, so maybe I should stop calling them weird. :D

    Snuske loves the smell of horses, and is frequently found napping on my stable clothes, the horses rugs and the saddle rug. But this one was a new pose:

    On top of a saddle rug, but underneath Gabriella's newly washed saddle. :D

    I love the smell of horses to and if I had my way I'd be in the stables alongside Snuske. Well maybe not under a saddle as I'm rather large!! :D :D

    Everyone needs their own special place and Snuske has found hers. :stew1:

    She'll have it until Gabriella comes home from her holidays. We put her out to graze on Saturday, and she'll enjoy horse life until the beginning of August. :D

    I swear cats find the most unusual places to call comfortable!

    Frank and Droopy I laughed my head off at that cat on the horse video even though I had no idea what he was saying. Is that you singing Frank?! Bravo!

    Your kitty girl is ever so sweet looking Droopy! I wonder if she misses Gabriella and that's why she is hanging out under her saddle?

    Hehe, our cats do find the strangest places to nap, and they have frequently startled me since I didn't expect to find them there.

    The stable where we rent is a 7-minute-drive from here, so Snuske has never met our horses. She just likes the smell of them, and by association, also my smell most days of the week. :D

    Oh no that's not me Daisy, I believe it was Droopy that posted that video a few months back and I just bookmarked it. It is sung in Swedish and I'll admit I have some problems understanding all of the lyrics.

    Love the markings on your kitty! And I agree that the video was a hoot! Good symbiotic relationship...the cat gets a soft spot to nap and the horse gets a good back scratch!!!

    Good pic Droopy. You never know where you'll find them. Snuske is a sweetie. One of mine, Casey, likes to sleep on Papa's shoes with her head stuck inside the toe.

    What a lovely shot of Snuske, a tailor made little spot for her to snuggle in. She is very beautiful.

    She's traded the saddle rug for my youngest daughter's new, cuddly coat for the moment. :eek: Lord Paint, our other cat, has laid claim to one of Truls's old saddle rugs. I think Lord can keep it, since it's too worn to be of much use anymore.
