Hmmm...  Indoor sunpuddle or outdoor sunpuddle today?  It's a big decision, for sure.

On the one paw, outdoor sunpuddles are bigger than indoor ones.  A kitty can get in a really good stretch, in an outdoor sunpuddle.  A way better stretch than in an indoor one, 'cause sometimes, if you stretch too much in the ones inside, you end up stretchin' right out of the puddle.  Believe me, I know.  MOUSES!

But on the other paw, on account of the rain earlier, there may be some water puddles mixed in with those sunpuddles outdoors.  None of that goin' on inside.

Again I must ask myself, indoors or out?

The peep did say today was to be unseasonably mild, and I do like to bask in a sunpuddle in mild weather.  Hmmm...

Eenie meenie miney mo, catch a puddle by its toe.

Nah, that doesn't work.  Everyone knows sunpuddles don't have toes.  MOUSES!

I think...  I think...  I think I'll try an outdoor sunpuddle to start.

Andy!  Why do you look like you just had a fur blowout done by someone who has no business blowin' out anyone's fur?  You been to the groomer or somethin'?

No, that was not a comment on your royal title, Sir Fartsalot, and your occasional need of a bum wash and trim.

But if the paw fits..

But do tell, Andy.  How come your fur is stickin' out all over the place?  You look like Albert Einstein havin' a bad hair day.  It's not the best of looks for a cat, for sure.

What's that?  You say you were just outside lookin' for some sunpuddles and there was a big gust of wind and...

How strong was that gust?

Really?  MOUSES!

I need to investigate this for myself.  Move over, Andy.  I'm headin' out.

OH MY MOUSES!  Andy, one moment it was as calm as calm can be and the next?  Well let me put it this way: had I had an umbrella with me, I'd be somewhere over the Atlantic by now.  You weren't kiddin' when you said it was windy.  No wonder your fur got all...  all...  all...  all whatever that look is, you're sportin'.

What's that, Andy?  Why is my fur not lookin' like yours after my bein' out there in that ol' gust of wind?  Well...  Well for starters, my fur is a lot shorter than yours, you see.  I never get a really frazzled look although at times, when dealin' with certain fur-sibs of mine, I can feel frazzled, for sure.  MOUSES!

Hey!  Who stuck these leaves on my back?

Ah yes, the wind.

You know, I enjoy a good leaf-chasin' game as much as the next kitty, but with wind like that...  Well let me put it this way: it's all fun and games 'til somebody gets a leaf stuck on their back.  MOUSES!

Hmmm...  I believe today will be an INDOOR sunpuddle day, for sure.

For mousin' out loud.  Look at that.  The sky has gone all cloudy and stuff, and there isn't a sunpuddle to be found.  Not indoors nor out.



  1. Hope you get some more sun puddles soon. Too bad the clouds had to come there.

  2. I'm always indoors so if I get the wind blown look something is really wrong! Hang in there, sunpuddle do return!

  3. On a very sunny morning we dogs can have 4 or 5 sun puddles to pick from. It is very hard.

  4. Well at least ya' got sun puddles to choose from huh?. We would be all fur inside sun puddles, after all, ya' wouldn't wanna miss a call fur treats. Just sayin' somepawdy might talk da peeps into extra treat time and ifin you're outside you would miss 'em. Have fun and don't get blown away.

    Luv ya'

  5. Sheesh the sun puddles are sure in short supply these days. We had a little today but not enough to warm up the sunny room at all.

    Stay safe indoors Seville!

  6. Those outdoor sunpuddles can be very elusive this time of year, Sivvers. And that wind! MOUSES! Better to stay inside in a nice warm bed. :)

  7. I think Andy looks adorable with the wind blown furs. I think indoor sunpuddles are best because indoor is safest.

  8. Hehe I does love a good sunpuddle almost as much as a good hedge to lay under, now if I could have a hedge puddle combo, a heddle or even a huddle I'd be over the moon, with that cow and all that cream! purrs ERin

  9. Outdoor sun puddles are pretty awesome! I hope yours return soon!

  10. Decisions,'m of the mind that indoor is best on a windy day. Outdoor is best on a WARM day. This time of year I'll be INSIDE searching out the best sunpuddle available! It's just a matter of what you preFURRRRR!

    Hugs, Sammy

  11. All that time trying to decide and you missed them all!

  12. My goodness, someone sure led you astray on the niceness of the outdoors that day, didn't they ?

  13. I hear hunting is much easier when you blend in with the surroundings ... like when you were covered with leaves, Seville ;)

  14. We hope the sun comes back to you and that you can still enjoy some nice sun puddles ! Purrs

  15. Hey Jerry! Yup, that's fine. Thanks!!! I tried to let you know over on Google+ but couldn't find a way to ask without leavin' my comment on a post 'bout somethin' else. I was kinda lost on Google+ before but now with the 'new and improved' version, I'm REALLY lost, for sure. purrs

  16. The kitties around here only ever get those indoor sun puddles. And, mouses, it sure is annoying when the clouds take away those puddles! I sure hope that sun is cooperating for you now, Seville, and giving you lots of sun puddles to choose from. Purrs!

  17. Oh no, I hope the clouds clear soon so you get your indoor/outdoor sunpuddle choice again. Our kitties are indoor sunpuddles only. Unless a sunpuddle reaches their catio.

  18. Thank you so very much for giving permission. You can see your linked header under All, Pets and Canada. If you could say something (preferably good) about here and there, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I know what you meant about Google+. For it was bad enough before, but now... Alas, I would like to change back to my regular Google profile, but I feel kinda trapped, For my Google+ profile has me with my real name while my regular Google profile has me as FishHawk, and I want to go with my real name as much as possible. I suppose I could set up a new regular Google profile with my real name under my SiteHoundSniffs email address, but I can imagine that causing more problems than solving. One of the biggest being my icon, which should be very recognizable to most because of being in the blogosphere with it for years and proof of SiteHoundSniffs not being some sort of spam-scan. Speaking of such, being on Google+ has brought a lot of exposure. I was shocked to see that my page was rapidly approaching 2 million views several months ago, and it was when I went to see what the number is now that I discovered the "new and improved" version of Google+, which evidently no longer has the amount of traffic received available. Sigh.

  19. Ah yes! My cats face such difficult life-altering decisions about where to enjoy the best sunpuddle everyday! If only our life decisions were so easy!!

  20. You have to grab the sun puddles when you can...
    Hope you get another chance real soon!
