A Room with a View for Sunday-Selfie


Jazmine, Mia, and Rolz share some window watching time while Peanut contemplates napping on the comfy bed.

My kitties are very blessed. We have a nice home with lots of wonderful places they can go to rest, relax, play, hangout, or whatever. But there’s one room that’s extra-special. It’s the room with a view that I call the “leopard room.” It’s decorated from head to toe in a variety of leopard prints, knick-knacks, stuffed animals, cozy pillows, and more. It also has a window that not only allows a curious cat to see the comings and goings of the world outside – you know, like people walking their dogs, but it’s also host to an assortment of tantalizing birds and squirrels that like to frequent the other side. But even better, it’s the room that’s always bathed in a soft glow of amber light, with an inviting sun-puddle to nap on if a kittyΒ so desires.

Not only do the cats love the room, but so do I. While it’s actually a guest bedroom, it’s where I go when I want some peace and quiet -whether to read, write, rest my head if I’m not feeling well, or if I just want to have a pile of cats cuddle around me. How about your house – do you have a room that’s extra-special to you and your cats?


There’s hardly a day that goes by that I don’t spot a cat catching a sun-puddle nap. This is Rolz and he’s clearly in heaven!


Jazz loved the leopard room. This was him in better days, several months before he passed on August 28 of 2013.


This was back when Harley was with us. She loved sunning herself on the window – joining her on the bed is Rolz, Zoey, Mia, and Peanut.


Oh my goodness! This picture just melts my heart…Jazmine was so tiny when we first adopted her! She and Kizmet met for the first time in the leopard room and they’ve been best friends ever since!


Sharing some quiet time with the gang when I was editing my book, Makin’ Biscuits. With me is Mia, Zoey, Zee, and Rolz. On the floor is Jazmine – note how she has a comfy pillow to lie on, but prefers the hardwood floor!

  1. HI. That sure does look like the perfect room for house cats to enjoy life and living and good company. It needs to be summer for us to have warmth in this Palace, but when it comes it’s too warm so I end up under a bush somewhere, chillin’
    Have a good week.

  2. the leopard room should be called the camouflage room cause those cats just blend in so well!!

  3. Baby Jazmine!!!!! I love all your cats … and that’s a very special room πŸ™‚

    I’ve tried to make every room in our home beautiful and comfortable. Since it belonged to my folks, it contains many memories of time with them and also with all of my/our feline loved ones who are now with them at the Bridge. All in all, I’d say our master bedroom is our Leopard Room. It’s full of softness and comfort and it’s our favorite place to curl up together and relax.

      That’s a lovely way to remember your folks and feline friends. All the rooms in our house are beautiful too – I want my cats to always feel happy and comfortable no matter where they are, but there’s just something extra-special about the leopard room.

  5. It looks like the purrfect place for you all..Roarrr πŸ™‚ Great Selfies of all of you πŸ™‚ Pawkisses for a Happy Sunday πŸ™‚ <3

  6. We have lots of windows that get great sunpuddles, when the sun shines, of course. So we love most every room in our house.

  7. Ellen Pilch says:

    That looks like a great room. I usually read in my spare bedroom which is KaTwo’s room because she doesn’t like other cats so it gives her some time with me.

  8. meowmeowmans says:

    What a lovely room. It’s no wonder you and the kitties love it so much. πŸ™‚

    Zoe and Gracie love being wherever we happen to be, but the living room with the big comfy couch is a favorite, for sure!

    I love that room! Looks so warm and cozy. Your guests are very lucky! I don’t think my crew has a special room they enjoy most of all. I don’t think I do either, come to think of it. Maybe I should do some redecorating!
