Niszka in Sedum spurium

I just found this old picture taken when I still used to live in Warsaw. On the balcony I used to have a pot and growing Sedum spurium - its abundance - as you can see - not only me made happy. My cat Niszka (Neeshka) also loved it - her look on this picture is pretty... eee... absent - but she really loved to sleep there :)

Cats love to sleep in strangest places.
Our Max loves pansies and violets..
Just when I enjoy the flowers most he takes a nap on top of the flowers. This is a very lovely to keep..
Happy New Year...

Niszka is a beautiful cat. She has a beautiful bed in this picture too.

Lovely kitty cat and nice looking sedum. Both are favorites of mine.

What a sweet picture. I have a lot of that sedum growing outside, I hadn't thought of using it as a house plant. Good idea!

Oh, what a sweet photo!

Ha! I love that picture! If one of our cats were in a plant like that, he would be digging in the dirt, and would be about to get into trouble!

that is very interesting behaviour of your cat :) jealousy?
I am looking forward to new opportunities next year. I have opened myself for changes :)

Niszka was a sweet, little strange cat - she was mixture between european cat and siamese.

Sedum is perfect for containers - no need to worry they don't get enough water and also it is very showy after some time. That pot you can see on the picture collected lot of attention :) I loved it too. Now plant is in the garden, but I decided to go back to grow it also in containers :)

Normally she was not allowed to get on plants or to play with soil, but in this case when I spotted here sleeping there first it was too late, second she looked so funny, that I was rather laughing than angry. Also she was living only in the appartment with us, without going out and it was the major spot with soil, so I let her do it :)

Happy New Year to everyone!

LOL! Great photo, Ewa. It always surprises me that cats can be soooo fussy and then find the oddest places to sleep :-) Happy new year to you :-)

What a lovely picture... and based on what I know of the sedum, what a tiny kitty she must have been. :)

I read your blog and adore all you kitty pictures. Maybe you and your readers might be interested in reading me as well. I’m an impulsive gardener with moodswings who’s interested in food, photography and writing. Where do you live now? I look forward to hearing from you.".

Thank you for visiting - yes, it is always surprising to see what disturbs them and what is loved :)

:) ehe :) kitty was big at that time :) my sedum was growing like crazy :)

Welcome to 'ewa in the garden'! I have moved 3,5 years ago to a little town located 25 km south-west of Warsaw and enjoy living with garden. My garden is young and slowly I get the feeling that it is 'the garden':)

Happy new year!!
