Sunny Days

Hey guys. We had a ton of sunshine over the weekend and I made sure I took total advantage of it by snoozing in a big sun puddle.

The mom thought it was weird that I napped with my tail straight out instead of curled up to my body. But hey…even my tail appreciates some sun time.

You know who else enjoyed the sunshine?

Geese in the sun

The geese. They came up on land and basked in the warmth of the sun. Of course, they weren’t quiet about it…honking and squawking the whole time. Noisy buggers. They know how to ruin a good nap.

But now those weather people say the sun is going away and we’re gonna get some rain and snow this week. I’m glad I got to enjoy it while it was here…despite the annoying geese.

  1. Now that is a sun puddle! We have those very noisy geese here too. They walk down the street and sidewalk like they own the place!

  2. Yep, our sun disappeared too Ernie and now the clouds and rains are back, yuck.

  3. It hasn’t rained here is a long time. I don’t like that because we live in a drought area. Oh well.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches to the kitties. ♥

  4. We had the sun at our house yesterday too! It was purrfect.

  5. That’s a huge sun puddle you found Ernie – room for you AND for your tail. Enjoy it while you can!

    Hugs, Teddy

  6. it’s important to tan your tail from time to time.

    we had a lot of sun too over the weekend. i was looking forward to spending time with the boyz but they spent a lot of time in sun puddles as well.

  7. What a glorious sun puddle you’ve got there, Ernie! You and your tail look quite relaxed 🙂 Glad you enjoyed a nice sunny day even with some noise in the background!

  8. Those geese should take a lesson from cats and chillax a little! I know Cat Dad and I followed our kitties example this weekend and got some good sunpuddle napping in. Enjoy your nap sweet Ernie!

  9. we are SOooo envious of your sunshine.. and to get ‘tail sun time’ too! Lucky you. It is so grey, damp and blustery here in old Blighty. Helen, Darcy, Bingley and Fred xxxx

  18. Always enjoy the sun whenever you get a chance Ernie!

  19. Time to stretch out and get as much sun as possible soaked into our bodies. Our snow storm has turned into not much of a storm. 6 inches down to a trace!

  20. Yoo look vewy comfortapurr, Ernie! Handsome mancat!

  21. Gotta soak up that sunshine while it lasts this time of year!

  22. Glad you are enjoying the sun. XO

  23. Sunny days are the best! Hope the bad weather doesn’t last too long.

  24. Ernie, what you said about your tail made mom smile a LOT!

  25. so sorry the geese were honking so loudly! They are Canadian geese so they should be a lot more polite!

  26. We had a lovely weekend too. No clouds in our future (sad because we could use a bit more rain).

  27. Weird? My tailio’s always out like that when I nap in the sun!


  28. Is that what you’re supposed to do with sun puddles? I’ve never seen any but today we went to a “hotel” and the entire floor was practically covered in sun puddles. I avoided them cos I thought I’d get sun burnt.

  29. Yup, we had that glorious sunshine too! And you know what…its going to rain here too…its already raining…to be followed by snow…sigh…

  30. Hey, just remember NOT to Honk If You Love Geese, haha.

  31. We think the tail out sleeping position is best for a sunpuddle. Maximum surface area and all to absorb the sun’s heat. I guess the silver lining is that those annoying geese weren’t blocking your sun!

  32. I’m glad you got some sun puddles, Ernie!

  33. Enjoy the sun for as long as it lasts, Ernie…and after you can always watch Goose tv live..with your ears close…MOL 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Tuesday

  34. We agree, tails like sunshine too 🙂
    Sweet dreams Ernie.
    Purrs,Georgia and Julie

  35. That is a lovely sun puddle, and of course your tail wants to enjoy it too.
    We have Canada Geese that live on the marshes of the river below us, and every morning and night they have a fly past honking all the way.

  36. Luke would be happy to come chase those geese away for you, since I won’t let him chase our birds! 🙂
    We enjoyed a nice, sunny weekend too, and even a sunny Monday! But we’re expecting rain and/or snow (who knows??) the next couple days as well.

  37. We had a sunny weekend too Ernie…we love finding sun puddles around the house. Looks like you have a great big one! Keep warm my friend!

  38. That’s right, you gotta soak it up when you can. Hope your week hasn’t been to rainy. Dad says he has some annoying geese at his work, and he often has to go out and clean up the mine field in the parking lot and on the sidewalks. And he says don’t even get him started on those cardboard dog things because they don’t work. He says the geese just get used to them and ignore them, and yes, he moves them as frequently as you’re supposed to.

  39. At least you have some cool geese to watch since your nap didn’t go as planned.

  40. Great sunpuddle surfing, Ernie. Sorry those honkers made such a ruckus!

  41. Dat looks like a lovely sunpuddle fur a snooze!! It has been a rainy mess here but today da sun is out so I am gonna find me a good sunpuddle to snooze in too 🙂

  42. Our sun has been so hit and miss this winter. If you have had the same craziness, we can understand why you were letting every inch of your furriness warm in the sun. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  43. Looks like you too full advantage of that sun! I hope it returns soon.
