Cute little kitty.
Sometimes just "sitting and waiting" is not bad at all...it beats running on the ever faster turning hamster wheel that is work!
The cat has charm and patience. I agree that its paw is probably on a ball of yarn - - or else it's a snowball, because he's waiting for winter to end.
He doesn't live in Boston, anyway. :)
The cat's eyes look adorable. :D
Beautiful little cat.cheers, parsnip
You too, Jenny!It's a lovely cat. The person who carved it clearly knew cats well in real life.
I think it is a modern carving, Meike. It is lighter than some of the old wood carvings on the pews and also, as you say, more realistic.
Hi - just saying hell while I actually have an internet connection that works!
Ooh, yes, I must check on your blog to see if you are back yet!!!! You wrote this over a week ago....
Hope the weather is treating you kindly. .
Hello Jenny,What a fun image.Sitting and waiting......excitement is surely just around the corner!
A bit too much excitement actually, although I should not complain. :)
What are you waiting for, Jenny? I hope it is for something good and exciting.
Thanks for the picture; a great detail.
I simply love that the pews have little cats carved into their arm spots! Enjoy your busy time as much as you can! And breathe!
It can be such fun to go round old churches and see the amazing carvings, so full of life they often are. I am sure they helped occupy bored children during long sermons, too, Jeanie.
Yes, that looks like a happy cat just pausing. We all need a pause now and then. ;)
Good week for you too, here is much snow (comes to the door of my house) you can not do much. Good week for you too.
Looks like a sweet little kitty!
My ex came to visit a couple or so weeks ago so we could celebrate his birthday together (we're still good friends and always will be)...and he gave me two wooden cats, not too unlike that one pictured. :)
What a nice coincidence. Like I said to Meike above, I think that they are reasonably modern, well, 1960s. That counts as modern in many old churches!!
Sitting and waiting is an activity too. You could always add staring. Perhaps reading might be more productive? Or more entertaining?Staying warm and cosy is my first priority at the moment.
Good luck with whatever has you so busy!
Thank you Jackie!
Waiting can be hard but you seem pretty content about it. Really like this sculptural piece.Darla
Nice cat. As they say, good things come to those who wait! :-)Have a great week.
That carving makes me smile. It also makes me miss having a kitty.
Me too. We used to have 2 but our baby was allergic. They went to live in a home in the country and to be honest they were much happier than they had been in London! still it was sad to see them go.
Lovely carving. Yes, sometimes it's enough to be happy that you have something to wait for.
How pleasantly unexpected to find a kitty in a church! I suppose she's there to catch the wooden mice. ;-)
That is a pretty cat. I love wood carvings and cats are always so stately.
I always finding waiting a little hard.
We can learn a great deal from our feline friends. They teach us patience.
I hate waiting, I hope everything is okay? I miss our 2 cats too.
