CATEGORY: "VIEW"
[Hmmm, I have set the 'scheduled post' for 27th at 12:01AM but it's posting NOW! :shrug:]

So, there I was with little to do for the day. All my 'work' was caught up from my 'to do list', and I got bored. I've been working on some projects [crafts] for Halloween ---since I don't have enough [insert snort here --or maybe a witch's cackle!] stuff for decorating in October....

I thought I'd begin taking down the Autumn leaves and scarecrows to get the house ready to unload the tons of boxes of witches, skulls, spiders, webs and such for next week sometime. Of course, October begins on Wednesday [or is it Thursday?]. And for the last four decades I've been decorating for Halloween on the first day. It all stays up around the house and outdoors up until November 1st when I bring out the 'turkey day' decorations and bring back the Autumn things again.....

Where was I? Oh ya...the category for this week; view! I'm sure everyone or most everyone will interpret the word 'view' as in panoramic...a view of the mountains, or a view from their window. Me? I have a whole different twist to the word. This time, it's going to be a cat's eye view of 'fun'!! One box came out of the storage closet for Halloween the other day, and both cats jumped at the chance of something new and exciting. I seem to be in a rut also, I've been posting a lot of cat photos here of late...

Here are their views of the 'new toy' as I view them through the viewfinder on my camera [with mouseover captions] and should open in a new window if enlarged---

  6. Wonderful post of the cats. (How do you do those mouse over things? You've got talent woman - you could teach a class to us inept computer users.) Love the castle with the sunroof.

    As for posting when it wasn't suppose to; I have learned that blogger just has a mind of it's own at times and you can't do anything about it. For example, my posts kept posting all bunched up, there were no breaks between paragraphs. So now when I want a break I put a period in that break and then color the text white (to match the background) and wha-la, when I post it it looks just the way I want it. To bad I have to do it this way but some times ya just have to improvise.

    Have a great weekend!

  11. What a beautiful cat! Don't you wonder what our pets think of all our stuff?

  12. How cute, the curious cats ! Rosie last year played with a little witch which she was taking for a mouse probably ! Slowly some Halloween decorations show up in the shops here, I had a look, but I don't do anything until 2 weeks before. I will probably be the only one in the street, because it is not yet so much use in Belgium. Pumpkins at the doors yes.

  17. Trust a cat to play in any box they find! I've seen my fat old Ricky squeeze himself into some pretty tight fitting ones.

  18. That's a furry kitty! So cute!!

    I played too :)

  19. Love your holiday look for the site! I love Halloween, too - my favorite!

    Isn't it just like a kitty to play with the box rather than the toy that came in it?

    I finally woke up and posted, so I hope you'll stop by:

  25. Great shot! My cats fight over boxes too. LOL It seems like the smaller the box is the better they like it. I think they just enjoy seeing if they can squeeze their big butts in a tiny space. LOL

    Thanks for the comment! Have a great weekend!

    Cats and boxes. You know if you put the two items in a room together you're going to be laughing. It was fabulous that we got a view of Tahoe even though s/he was in a box, thanks to plastic window.

  41. Cats and kids have a lot in common. They can play with the oddest things and have the greatest time.

    Good series and captions.

  43. Very cute views! New boxes are always fun for kitties aren't they?! Here is my view.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Cats always have a different view of the world - good choice.

  45. wonderful thinking of "view"! happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Those are pretty cool view photos, Anni. I hope to get a chance to "view" some photos of your spooky decorated Halloween home later *g*

    The Halloween-y blog layout is a winner in my book. I ♥ it :-)

    Happy Hunting!

  47. Sometimez the ‘scheduling’ works for me … and sometimes it doesn’t. Luv the ‘kewl’ jack o’lantern in your sidebar. Love the ‘mouse-over’ captions for your pix … and thanks for you know what ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  48. A BOX! Woohoo! I love boxes! And that one has a built-in window, too!

  49. Fall is sure in the air now.
    It real pretty out side at my place all the leaves are turning color.

    During my week off. I had a few to do things on my list to do for fall but I came down with the crud and couldn't do it.

    Coffee is on.

  50. Hehe! Very creative "view"!

    Thanks for your comment on mine! =)

  51. Anni,

    The boys and I put up a few Halloween decorations last Friday when they stayed over, but we aren't done yet. Once I started so did some of the other neighbors. It's nice to have the outside looking like autumn and a few ghosts, witches and scarecrows don't hurt either.

    Love the photos of the kitties. Winston is adorable. Thanks so much for sharing. Tahoe certainly had a wonderful place to spend the day.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  52. Thanks for visiting my photo hunt and great take on the view theme!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. You are just too, too crafty for words -- loved the mouseover captions too

    ReplyDelete
  54. I like what you've done with the place! Makes me wonder what those chains lead to at the top of your header though...LOL! ;-)

    Love the pics of your 2 kitties playing with the boxes. Ain't that about right? You can buy expensive toys and bring them in and they won't play with them, but dig out some boxes or roll up some paper wads and watch 'em go.

    Happy Fall, Anni.

    Love and hugs,

    Diane

  55. We did the cat's eye view too! Great minds must think alike.

    And Annie - one can never post too many cat pictures! Keep it up - they are our favorites. :)
