Everything Old is New Again

While packing and unpacking over the past couple of months, some stuff has resurfaced. You know those things that get pushed to the very back of drawers and closets? And when you come across them someday you say, "Hey, I totally forgot about this!"


This basket resurfaced during our recent move and when I unpacked it here I thought, "Hm... that would work on in the office."  It wasn't long before Fancy Jane stepped into the basket and I remembered...


And it didn't take her long to remember either. She steps into this basket and starts walking around in a tight circle. She eventually winds herself down and around and tucks herself in for a solid cat nap. If you disturb her slumber she is not happy with you.


Which brings me to the point of this post. Carrie took this next picture of Fancy in 2004. This is the only copy I have - the one that [16-year old] Carrie put a green finish to. I have to say, this photo is one that consistently puts a smile on my face every time I see it. In fact, it cracks me up. I think the green finish is what makes it even more hilarious.


Who dares to disturb my slumber?!?!?

Ha.
Haven't we all been there at one time or another?

Do you have any photos from the past that consistently make you smile?
I'd love to see them!

Indeed! There is one of Henry sitting grumpily in Budapest one summer when he would rather have been home playing all stars. It's in his sports album.

hahaha they pick the weirdest places don't they! Many years ago I thought one of my cats had eaten her kittens because they were missing for a few hours .... then appeared from INSIDE the back of the sofa!! xx

Awww...I love my little Fancy Jane. <3 I LOVE the pictures you took of her, and it's so cute that she still curls up in that basket. That picture cracks me up too. lol I love that I used it for my "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat" album artwork on my iPod. ;)

I can't get over how much Fancy Jane reminds me of our Tom cat. Even to glare is the same lol! xx

Nothing can glare like a 'disturbed' cat!!!!

That is a great older shot - I think I may have that look on occasion when my slumber has been disturbed. LOL

I love how cats can sleep almost anywhere and they really like to get comfy in boxes and bags, well our cat does! Hope all is well with you and yours xxx

It looks like a really tight fit in that basket. Cats do choose the funniest places to have a little nap in.

Oh, what a cutie!!! And I want to say thanks for your sweet comments in my blog. I know it can be hard to understand everything, because I only blog in Swedish.... But sometimes it is better to let the pictures talk ;-)
