Meet Snuggles.
Snuggles is my friend from next door.
When I am at the clothes line, Snuggles jumps the fence to say hello.
I love Snuggles.

Our neighbour told me that she knows when I am at the clothes line, if Snuggles is inside, whether sleeping or not, he bolts up from where he was, and bounds out the door.

I loved when my neighbour told me that. I don't even feed Snuggles, it's just pure simple hello and a chat, oh and a cuddle, and a scratch behind the ears, but you know, I think Snuggles knows how much I love him.

I have never taken photos of Snuggles before, but this day, was a lovely day. Washing just freshly hung on the line, Snuggles jumps the fence to say hi, and instead of me just having a quick pat and chat, this day, I put the washing basket down, sat myself on the grass, and we had a wonderful conversation lazing in the sun. When I got up to go, he looked at me like he had more to say, so I sat down again. We sat in silence for a few minutes, both of us lazing in the sun, soaking up the warmth, feeling the cool of the winter air stirring through the garden. I got up again, to get the camera, I just so wanted to capture our few moments together.

Thank you dear Snuggles for my lovely piece of today.

Aw, what a cutie! I love how kitties are so loving and snuggly. Your chat in the sun with Snuggles sounds so lovely. Snuggles looks a bit like my Mum and Dad's cat, Pearl. Same little black streaks that remind me of eyeliner. hehe
