Here comes the sun - dadadadee




Today was an absolutely beautiful spring day. PERFECT spring weather, 70 degree day. The sun was beaming into the living room. I put a pillow on the floor, and Dante sat on it to enjoy the sunbeam. Smart kitty. Dante is still as bad as ever, but every day, he gets a little better. He still bites us when he gets excited, we are trying to teach him better.

But doesn't he just look precious on the pillow soaking up the sun. It's almost hard to believe this gentle looking kitty can be such a bad biter!!

Nothin' better than sunnin' your furs.

My Grey Cat used to nip sometimes when he was being petted. I read somewhere that some cats are more sensitive than others to being stroked for some reason (how would anyone know that?) but some cats are may be just more playful or trying to be dominant. Dante certainly looks every bit the charmer in these photos!

Of course being the cat lover that I am I always love the Star Trek episodes that include Data's cat Spot. (What a great name for a cat! lol)

The siamese here have a yellow banana catnip toy that they love.. and the sun is their favorite place to sit and sleep.

Eric: I bite too when I get excited. When I was younger, it used to be hard bites, but now I try to keep them gentle, but I still forget sometimes.
I adore being groomed and I just get so excited I can't help myself.
Your sunspot looks nice. I hope we get some sun today.

Yes, that bitey thing has a name...here's a good link to info about it

The behaviorists I work with say it sometimes helps to pet with a glove, not on your hand but held so the fingers brush the fur instead of your own fingers and that can help desensitize the cat after a while)

We have been enjoying the sun, too. You look very happy!

Everything looks so nice! And what a perfect day! And Anastasia used to bite too - but was still the most wonderful cat ever! She was feral, couldn't help it.....
And you might have watched the latest CCSI caper already (we are beyond being organized!) - but of you didn't - you got to check it out!!! It is done totally different than the others and just way cool!!!

Oh man... we're still wearing sweaters over here in England. I mean... they're still wearing sweaters. The sun comes out more often, though and you will be sure to find me sitting right in a beam.

I can sing with him ! We have warm and sunny weather too. My cats enjoy the sunshine on the terrace while I am blogging outside ! Winter is over, youpeee !!
Rosie still bites too. And I got her when she was 6 weeks old. I think there are cats who are biters ! With me it's getting better, but Mr. Gattino has to be careful. I just give her a slap on her nose ! Once she bit me while I was sleeping ! I really was happy, I tell you !

I bite my mom sometimes! Usually soft! But sometimes harder! The sun is wonderful!

We want to thank you for the words for our human sister! She is better now.... she had a bad stomach flu for a couple of days!
