Does my bum look big in this?

By RosaB
Well that was a tight squeeze but I made it!!!

I uploaded this for fun! Cats are wonderful animals but I am often left puzzled by their actions! It's 35c here in the shade in Crete and yet our old, large and much loved cat Mandy has decided to make himself comfortable in this bowl! I would have thought it was the last place he would want to be surrounded by plastic!
He always likes to try anywhere new and won't use the comfy cat bed we bought specially for him!
Why do they do that!!

Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments! Yes he got out OK Mandy! BTW we named him Mandy after the mandarin tree he slept under as a kitten before we new he was a TOM!! He was a feral cat and we eventually took him into our home and our hearts!
Excellent, a real fun shot

I've enjoyed the afternoon looking at all your lovely comments!
If you look at my last comment,Bec you will see the reason "he" was called Mandy! His brother was called Honey because he sat under the honeysuckle! Unfortunately he disappeared one day and we never saw him again!

What a lump LOL. He's the same colour as my horror who to my distress is constantly bringing in gheckoes every evening just to torment, they drop their tails which freaks me out as the tails then jump about by themselves.....aaargh! Are you overrun with ants as well, I keep finding thousands in the cat bowl. Sometimes I think I have more wildlife in the house than out.

Great fun shot. We used to have an old Black Labrador that would sit in things about that size. We used to howl at her.
