Observation Station

Observation StationElvis is a very calm cat. (Most of the time at least!) He’s very laid back and collected. He doesn’t often race around or yell or pester. He’s happy to just be.

Sometimes he likes to watch the world go by from a suitable comfortable platform. Somewhere where he can observe the comings and goings. It lets him see what Lola is doing (Is she sleeping? Will she start yelling again? Is she going to get fed, and might I be able to steal some of her food?), and to check what Sampson is up to (Is he asking for food? Is he getting hangry? Will he come and try to hit me again?)

Observation Station 2Other times though he is happy to just let the world be. He knows it will continue to be there, no need to watch and make sure everything is going to plan. He’ll curl up in a basket, on a chair, or a bed, with his nose tucked under his tail oblivious to everything.

    My cat Sunshine is an oblivious- that is not to say, he is not curious – that he is. His favorite place to sit is on our rocking chair,which has an extension for us to stretch out our legs, he loves to sit on the stretched out part.:)

    Elvis is a good looking guy. =^-^=
    Crystal has great supervisory skills, seems a bit more intense than observing. From the window she supervises the dogs walking their humans, chatters a reprimand to the squirrels when they get slack, and *tries* to keep her human on the schedule she has dictated. Mega hugs!

    Elvis has a face like big cats in the jungle. Our Kosmo’s favourite place is the kitchen window. We feed birds and Kosmo watches them and informs if a strange cat comes to our yard. Kosmo loves humans and he must to be very near us and he is curious, he checks bags, toilet, washing machine, fire wood, sauna…

    Purrseidon is an observer – preferably from the highest observation point available, but for some things, she wants her nose and eyes up close to see the details.

    My cat Scooby’s favorite places to watch and sleep are on wooden chairs either under the kitchen table or dining room table. The tablecloths hanging down make him hard to see and find. He is these days keeping his eyes open for food distribution. He is on a restricted diet. Elvis seems like a great cat, and he is great looking living up to his name.

      Oh our boys do like being on the chairs under the table too. I agree, the table cloth hides them well! Especially Sampson, who being black can often be mistaken for a shadow… Our boys are on a restricted diet too, and Sampson is particularly keen on looking out for any hint of food. I can’t take credit for Elvis’s name – he had it when we adopted him 🙂 Thanks for commenting!

    Elvis is so cute, love when they put their paws like that, the cutest thing ever. My cats are mostly oblivious, but there’s one – Freddie – who observes for them all haha, birds and squirrels, through window.

    • Lady Joyful says:

      It is adorable when they put their paws like that, you’re right! Oh it’s so funny to watch them observing critters outside that they can’t get! Thanks for commenting 🙂

    My cat, Jack is definitely an observer! He has MANY favorite places! His 2 favorite are “his chair” outside on the deck and the back of the couch, indoors! ? P.S. Elvis is very handsome! ??

    Emma is an observer. She likes high places (an old leather suitcase on top of a wardrobe, the box of my walking socks on top of another wardrobe) and the top of the stairs is one observation point; looking out to the street (alley) from downstairs is another and as the alley becomes non-vehicular shortly after her house, this vantage point is passed by many cyclists, children and dogs on leads, plus a prowling cat from time to time, all of which interest her. But of late she’s shown her increasing confidence (she was a stray) by settling down on the floor between the living-room and the dining-room at the bottom of the stairs to observe human comings and goings.

    • Lady Joyful says:

      An alley is surely a fun place to observe! All those comings and goings… Wonderful to hear that Emma is gaining confidence 🙂 Thanks for commenting.

    And last night, for the first time, she settled down on the printer. As this is situated on a table just behind my computer chair and desktop, it’s an ideal place to observe me from.
