Well, ya’ll, Spunk here. The temperature’s rising, and while the Paparazzo waters, he pesters us with his clicks. He’s such a pest, but at least the flowers are blooming.
Wisteria hanging in the hood
It’s me, Glenda. I’m enjoying the heat, the cat tree, and the blooming blooms! Fortunately, the pesky Paparazzo is smart enough to know he doesn’t need to water the cat tree. However, we need to make him understand he doesn’t need to water cats the same as plants when we are outside.
Look deep into my eyes, pesky Paparazzo! You are feeling sleepy, and sleepier. You’re asleep! You will not pour water on me or the other kitties when we are outdoors. We are Cats, not Plants!

Good evening! Gwendolyn here. Let me tell you that the pesky Paparazzo Bugs! He’s way worse than Spot, the orange ladybug, hanging out on the Peony buds.
Okay, you stupid paparazzo. Enough flower photos already. You are wearing everyone out. Especially moi!

Looks like we can add meteorologist and hypnotist to the list of kitty talents in your household
It certainly looks that way. They are always trying new things to control me. Thanks, JYP.
The kitties and flowers made my day. 🙂
Thanks, Susan. That makes all of us happy.
With all due respect to those of the feline persuasion, I like the flower photos very much, particularly the wisteria.
Spunks says he understands. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim. (Thanks for understanding, Spunk.)
That cats may find you annoying, but your readers sure do not!
I am so jealous of your wisteria! it does not grow here!
Love the iris photos.
Wisteria is really iffy here. The slightest dip towards freezing and it’s done. “¡Hasta la visit! Baby! I won’t be back!” Fortunately, the early morning temps have stayed in the mid to high 30s since it bloomed. Thanks, Dale.
At least it grows…. So pretty and I know it is considered a weed to some people! Not me. Not ever.
It does like to grow all ovr everything.
But so pretty!

Looks like you’ve really got a green thumb. Both the plants and the cats look like they are thriving and happy.
I wouldn’t say I have a green thumb. I do water the plants the best I can. Thanks, Rebecca.
The cats look happy with the higher temperatures and the clearly enjoy being outside. Also your plants and are doing very well, the Wisteria looks lovely !
I can never ever get enough cat or flower photos Tim, and these were just stunning..
Enjoy your rising Temps and keep dodging those water showers 😂🤣🐈😘
Thanks, Sue. Not much water to shower with these days.
Well, I can tell you, you’re not wearing me off… au contraire!
I love each and every one and all furries in between!
I hope my wisteria blooms too one day. I’ve had her for years but still haven’t seen her bloom…
Your wisteria must be identifying as a non-blooming plant. Thanks, Marina.
Well… I do hope she changes her identification! 🤣
Photographs of beautiful cats on a Monday morning… that’s a good way to start a day!
I have to agree. Thanks, Herman.
I love the cats and the flowers….thank you:)
You are welcome, Janet.
I love the kitties and the flowers! That Wisteria! I love seeing Wisteria as it does not grow here. I enjoy the Iris as well. I planted some here… we shall see if it grows. I have some at the Lake House… hope it survived the strange winter out East. (Perrenials need that blanket of snow to keep warm during freezes.)
Thanks for the fun post!
You are welcome, Nancy. I hope all you eastern plants made it through the winter.
I love the kitties! Where is silly Silver?
The flowers are beautiful. I would love to have a wisteria like that, too!
Silver was lounging inside and had nothing to contribute. Thanks, Lavinia.
Lovely color in the flower photos. The cat photos looked a tad, well, furry. 🙂
Fur happens. Thanks, Brad.
I love this post!!!😍
The cats are so cute!!! And, the flower photos are amazing; the Wisteria are my favorite!!! I have always been drawn to those! 💜 I’m counting down the days until we reach the 90’s here! 😍
Thanks, Samantha. I remember you saying you like it hot.
what a beautiful line up Tim.. the cats look pretty compliant of your tapping actually! 💗
Welcome Tim! ❣️
Every image is hypnotizing like all the eyes of the cats and kittens
And the eager pesky paparazo sitting in the wings to catch the latest pic and news.
Even the little bug is a great story.
What a lovely flora and feline home.
Taking me a week and a Sunday to download
You are welcome Timothy
You have super slo mo connections?
Yes it’s random like that. Even outside of loadshedding times
Wow, there are some really stunning pictures of flowers here. I enjoyed the cats too.
Thanks, Roberta. The cats think I need to post more photos of them.
Beautiful post Tim!
Cats and flowers, what a winner!
Especially lovely is Spunkie-Poo 💋 as cat bookends!
Spunk is still the model cat. Thanks, Resa.
Combine the two together. Take photos of Catkins.
We do have catkins on the cattails in the ditch. Thanks, Geoff.
New cat tree??? I remember one shredded and in tatters.
The newest of three cat trees. It’s on the deck. It will be a year old at the end of this month. I have already reroped parts of it. The kitties are really hard on cat trees. Thanks, Deborah.
What personalities your cats have. Learned from the best I am sure. Lovely pics
Haha! Thanks, Shey. There lies the ever puzzling question: Do we attack weird animals because we are weird? Or do our animals become weird because we are weird? Either way, we are a weird lot around here.
They say pets get like their owners….
Weirdos all around then.
Epic is more like it.
Amazing furries and wonderful plants to hand.
But I’m not jealous… Oh, no! No, no, no, not at all, in the slighest. Humph! Hahaha!
You could use a furry or two. Thanks, Inchie.
Those kitties have your number and by the look in their eyes, they mean business. That first shot cracked me up – like he is mentally daring that mercury to go any higher.
Spunk likes chanllenging things. Thanks, Brian.
Wish our wisteria looked like that, not a chance! So good seeing the kitties .. and those gorgeous Iris!
