I'm on the feline trail this week for Sepia Saturday.
This is Nursie, a few months old in 1976, doing that funny kitten thing of suddenly flopping and falling asleep right in the middle of running round creating havoc. Nursie got her name from Night Nurse cold and flu remedy (whenever the Night Nurse advert came on TV she'd run to the screen and stare at it, absolutely mesmerised) not Night Nurse the famous racehorse. She grew up to be a beautiful ginger tabby with white socks and bags of personality.

Much, much more over at Sepia Saturday!

I have two dogs under my desk at the moment - one 14 and one 2 years old who have run themselves to a standstill this afternoon.
You would have thought they would have learnt by now,
Mind you I only have to say 'cats' and they would off again.
Why do cats seem to be made of bendy rubber when they flop down like Nursie?

That's so funny how Nursie got her name. What a beautiful cat.

What a lovely girl!

My late kitty loved to watch the National Geographic specials about cats. He'd sit in front of the screen for the full hour, never walking away. He never grew tired of it.
