Yes... I do take requests!

This post is for sweet Anesha who is owned by
an adorable orange kitty named Skipper and who
requested more of Banjo!  I aim to please....  ;)

*~*~*~*~*~*

When it's cold outside and you are spending the day
relaxing on the couch watching the Feather Channel...


It's good to have a cozy blanket.... errr....
a cozy furry belly to keep your feet warm.


Yup...
nice and cozy warm under that big ball of...
ummm.... fluff...


Hmmmm....
that's a lot of 'over hang' Banjo.


But at least you are nice and warm
while watching the little birds
freeze their tail feathers off!

(Actually...it's really not that cold out and we only have a skiff of snow.)


Speaking of bird watching...
look who was at the end of my street again yesterday
when I got home last night after work!

Hey sweet owl!
Could you not move down from the light post onto perhaps
a low hanging tree branch so that I could
maybe get a better photo of you?


*sigh*
what I wouldn't give for a 400mm lens...

Happy Thursday!

Looking darn good Banjo!

Susan said...

You have the cutest posts! I always leave your blog with a smile on my face! Your kitty is so darn cute! And that owl! Maybe his feet are frozen to the light post! Anyway, you take awesome pictures!

Bossy Betty said...

Gorgeous pictures! Love that one of Banjo's sweet paws!

Super Models like the last one don't take direction too well, do they?

The Cat Guy said...

That was nice of Banjo to watch over those birds while they ate. Very thoughtful.

Good to know you take requests. I'll ponder that.

TexWisGirl said...

love your sweet fur-kid! what a beauty! as is that SNOWY!

Mariette said...

Dearest Catherine,

Gorgeous owl photo anyway! Oh, love the 'feather' channel post! We have one feline that is like Banjo and there seems to be nothing we can do about it. As long as they're happy; let them be.

Love to you,

Mariette

Banjo is one big cute boy....I am enjoying all these pictures of him and again Simon says to tell him hi...They surely have one thing in common, sitting on the back of a chair in front of a window watching the birds....I often wonder what he is thinking....

I think that owl likes you and doesn't want you to have to drive so far to get more pictures...Maybe he'll move on down your street in the near future.....He is beautiful.....

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That Banjo is a good looking guy. Now Charlie is asking me to share more photos of him! He thinks he is being short changed since that 'baby' came into my life. Love the owl! lucky you to even see him. hugs, Linda

S. Etole said...

Banjo and the owl seem to be color coordinated. Great photos.

silverthoughts2 said...

I can't believe you got so close in that one shot.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

I love the marking on Banjo... what a beautiful kitty!

I think the owl may be avoiding the paparazzi... =0

It's me said...

Owwww sweet Banjo...love from me...xxx....

Nancy Claeys said...

The feather channel. Lol. My cats could care less -- well, the indoor ones anyway...

Gorgeous owl!

BeadedTail said...

Banjo, you are just so handsome! We think you have a purrfect Mancat body! It's not nice of your mom to tease you just because she's lost all her fluff! Our mommy is still fluffy so she doesn't dare comment on our fluff.

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

A little bit of overhang never hurts anyone. After all this is Canada and we can use a little extra insulation in the Winter.
Banjo can always go hunting for that darling gopher come Spring to shed a little of his love handle.
Have a great weekend.

Becca said...

Oh I love Banjo posts! Thank you Anesha! I am heading back over there to see that beautiful orange kitty...after all I am a bit partial to the orange kitties! Humm, Fetzer has that same "overhang" but I just call it his "jungle kitty muscle" so I don't hurt his feelings. LOL
Wow, that owl likes you! LOVE the shots...one day he will end up in your yard.

Tracy said...

Cat, your photos are so lovely of the kitty and that snow owl, why doesn't he listen to you and move down a bit? he's probably male....

Ann said...

Well a big thanks to Anesha and Skipper for requesting to see more Banjo. Of course I love your bird shots to but it's always nice to see sweet Banjo

Linda R said...

Ahhhh... I just love seeing photo of cute banjo.. and that Owl is amazing. I am pretty sure we don't have those here in the desert.

Hugs, Linda

Chatty Crone said...

Pretty kitty and love the white owl. sandie

The Purr Diaries said...

Yay for more Banjo! He's just so beautiful! =^..^=

Katie and Glogirly said...

Catherine, all your photos are beautiful. ...but that first one of Banjo, well it's just amazing! You have a great talent.
; ) Katie & Glogirly

Linens and Royals said...

That's not overhang is it Banjo? That's your lovely warm winter coat.

Michael Manning said...

Banjo looks like he is in a somewhat "reflective" mood! ;)

What a terrific cat! Have a nice weekend!!!

SweetMarie said...

Banjo looks so cute and so soft! Those little birdies outside are so cute and have no idea that they're taunting a cat that could eat them all at once! Lucky for them Banjo is an indoor kitty. :)

Hope you're having a great week!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Banjo is a handsome fellow indeed ! Sweet birdies and beautiful owl. I think you got some pretty good images. Have a fab Friday. Tammy

SquirrelQueen said...

Aw Banjo, you are so handsome. That's just fluffy extra fur, it really helps to keep those toes warm.

That is a fabulous shot of the owl. He is a beauty!

Katy Noelle said...

Cat Cool! Doesn't care two bits about that, ummm, fluff or what you might think of it, does he? Ah, to be like that.

and "Amen!" to the lens wish!

and that's all that I can think to say at "too early o' clock in the morning"....I'm going back to bed, now!

Katy Noelle said...

OH! I forgot....

"xo" =]

cathy@home said...

And Banjo was his nameo

Reena Walkling said...

I always love seeing Banjo! Envious of your snowy owl! Hope to see one someday!

Kerri said...

Oh, Banjo is is delightful!

Deborah said...

Tamago said...

Awwwww we don't need blanket if we have that...cozy furry warm big belly :-)
This owl seems to love the light post very much! Maybe he enjoys watching cars!

Sylvia said...
