Monday Daily Dose of Cute: Looking for Santa?

Mr. Midnight loves to prowl around on The Shack roof

Want to meet the rest of our crazy cats?
Topaz (aka 3T)
Patchy Cat
Sarah Kit Kat Kate
New Cat
Molly Doodlebug (aka The Doodle Monster)

©, the feline foodie farm blog where yesterday this curious cat spent all afternoon locked in the back 'closet' (it's actually a falling down, poorly walled-in covered porch) because every time you go in there he pulls open the door with his paw and then rushes in at top speed (often without being noticed) despite the fact that it's freezing cold, totally devoid of mice, and really, really boring.


  1. sometimes, could we maybe see the shack? will it remain, since it is so historic??? i love black cats, and i am really a dog person

  2. I love have some beautiful ones, I especially liked Smudge, cutest little face! Molly Doodles...scary eyes! Looked very cat-tancarous! Mr. Midnight...all he needed was a white bow tie for his dinner-out! Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a great photo! I love the curiosity in my cat.

  4. This is the best photo - how lucky you were to catch it. Mr. Midnight is too adorable (as are all the animals!!) It's so much fun that you are able to capture some of their purr-sonalities!!

  5. Did I see my blogging friend in Country Living magazine (my favorite)?? What a delight!!

  6. If Santa is still in there from Christmas, he ain't gonna look too pretty . . .

  7. Love the picture! He's got that naughty look. ;)

    My big man is also black with a little white from going grey starting to show and one tiny manly splotch of white on his chest.

  8. My mom's black cat liked doing the same thing in the dryer. Once he actually got to go around a few times because she didn't see his shadowy self in there. Don't think he went in the dryer much after that.

    Yours looks awfully silky - boy do I love the black cats!

  12. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!!!! We love cats at our place, but can't seem to keep any around. I promised my husband that I'd never have more cats than kids (3). We have had our current kitten since May. That is pretty good for us.

    Thanks for sharing this one =)

  13. I love your photographs and am envious of your decision to 'leave it all behind', as I more and more long to do. I saw your article in Country Living Magazine and will follow your fantastic blog.

December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.
