They do realize their butts are touching?

Jemi Fraser said...

Those are 2 great excuses!
We haven't got quite as far as summer yet. We did have 2 icky humid days but now we're back down to heavy sweater territory again!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Charlie does indeed make a handsome screensaver!

Happy June to you too. Glad to hear the weather has improved. Bloody cold Down Under though! xx

Brian said...

They've got it covered fur sure!!! That is the best excuse ever!

Julia Hones said...

Those two are good excuses, Old Kitty. Now grab a paper note-book and write outdoors! Summer is calling you!

Rene said...

Oh look, the boys are sitting butt to butt, how cute!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Charlie seems to have overcome his aversion to being so close to Gumtree. Or perhaps it's only butt-touching that's permitted, i.e. no eye contact!

Have a terrific week!

Tamago said...

Oh yes, they make purrfect excuse :-)
Charlie sure is such a handsome baby and makes great screensaver!

Happy June to you, too. Wishing you a wonderful new month!!

Eileen said...

It appears Gumtree wants some attention!

Good to hear the weather has improved, I hope it stays that way. Have a wonderful week!

Adam said...

it sure feels like summer here too

Stephen Tremp said...

They have the right idea. Sit down at the PC and do nothing! I wonder if they shared a bottle of vino?

mshatch said...

We have summer here, too - 95 degrees here yesterday!!! Your kitties look very comfortable on your desk :)

meowmeowmans said...

Happy June to you, Old Kitty! We think those are some GREAT (and beautiful) excuses not to write. :)

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

Charlie is a BEAUTY! I wouldn't get any work done either if he was around.

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Your Charlie looks very similar to our Lulu. He makes a great screen saver!

Helena said...

My cat's favorite nap place is my office chair, and sometimes I just don't have the heart to wake her up and put her in my lap while I work on my computer. That's my excuse for procrastinating, so I understand why Charlie and Gumtree get in your literary way!

Manzanita said...

Aren't they a handsome pair, stretched out, doing their cat naps. Happy summer to the UK. Montana hasn't received word yet, that it's summer. Ha

Mark said...

It is getting pretty warm here and staying so consistently. My cat is always preventing my dad using his laptop. It's an excuse that fits with me.

Theresa Milstein said...

Two Charlies in one picture! I love this. Now you can make this picture your screensaver. :)

Summer hit here too. It's been in the 90s for a few days. But now it's raining and will be back in the lovely 70s tomorrow.

Have a great week!

Hilary said...

Charlie does make a great screensaver!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Those are most welcome distractions!

Natalie Aguirre said...

We still have two more weeks until school is out. Can't wait for summer to begin.

Madi and Mom said...

Good morning to you all and OH do we thank you for coming by to read Derry and Nicki's interview and on Man Cat Monday too.
Hugs madi and mom

Hannah and Lucy said...

We agree that Charlie makes a great screen saver but now will Gumtree want a turn too?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Jennifer Shirk said...

Too cute!!

Bring some of that summer over here!

Simon Kewin said...

Happy June to you too!

Maria Perry Mohan said...

Hello, Kitty. Your cats are lovely. We were having a very hot summer until about two days back in India, but the rain has brought a welcome respite.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Hey, that looks like fun. Think we'll join Charlie in a snooze.

tenku butang said...

Gumtree same size n color like my cat.. his name is Butang.. heee..

Norma Beishir said...

Think they'll ever give you back your computer?

Carol Kilgore said...

Works for me! My two excuses bark instead of meow, but the same principle applies :)

Janet Johnson said...

LOVE this! Can't think of a better reason to procrastinate. . . . Squirrel! ;)

William Kendall said...

They are a perfect reason to not get anything done!

fairyhedgehog said...

Very good excuses they are too!

Hope you're having a wonderful time in the sun.

ABBY said...

Aren't you both so sweet. Charlie you do make the perfect screensaver.
Oh yes we know it's summertime here with the arrival of stormy weather and tropical waves coming off of the African coast.

susanjanejones said...

They deserve to be looked at all day long. I'd never write a word if I had those handsome boys to look at Kitty. Great post.xx

LTM said...

Look at them--LOL! They are very snug on your warm computer... Speaking of snug, it was only 60 degrees here today. I'm ready for summer now! :P

<3

KarenMcG said...

Awww, we think there are three excuses for not writing...the Charlie screensaver counts as one, too.

klahanie said...

I was going to leave a comment. Maybe tomorrow, or the next day, or....ha ha and ha! :)

Take care, y'all

Katz Tales said...

Yeah! That's the purrfect excuse.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I want to cuddle them.

We got summer weather, and then we got rain. And lots of it. :P

Pasha said...

We double dare you to start typing while Gumtree is looking at you like that! :)))

Teresa Ashby said...

Happy June :-) Still not very warm here on the east coast, but at least the sun has come out! Your screensaver couldn't be any more handsome :-) x

DWei said...

Have you ever considered making a cat trap? Those are pretty good at keeping them off your desk.

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Oh my! Looks like you have the best sources of imagination....and they purr too! Happy June, friends!

Marilia said...

Have a wonderful June!!!!!

Deniz Bevan said...

Oooh, so fuzzy! I just want to kiss them!

Romance Book Haven said...

Of course, Charlie makes an awesome screensaver!

Happy Summer!

Nas

Lydia Kang said...

Happy June to you too!

Hart Johnson said...

*giggles* what handsome obstacles they are, though....

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Such cute kitties, or should I say distractions. My cats always find a way to distract me (not that I mind). : )

Maria McKenzie said...

Cats, everywhere you want to be!

Medeia Sharif said...

I love the screensaver. Happy summer.

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Haha! Cats-- they get you every time! I used to do projects on the floor, and the cat would lay on my papers!

Bossy Betty said...

I love your excuses! They really know where to park themselves, don't they!

Team Tabby said...

Charlie is right, that's an excellent screen saver. Enjoy the sunshine!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Charlie does indeed make a magnificent screen saver! Enjoy the beautiful weather, Jenn!

RaShelle Workman said...

Love your kitties. Happy Thursday!!!

Katie Isabella said...

Oh the BEST reasons in the world for writer procrastination. Tell you what, mom said she will hold one for you if you like. Whichever baby it is, that baby will get snorgles!!!

Marg said...

Yup, those two are such a great distraction. Charlie, you do make a great screen saver. Good job boys, snoooopervising the mom. Have a great week end.

Gina Gao said...

These are two great excuses!

Esme said...

Those are two very good excuses.

The Chair Speaks said...

Thank you for your well wishes and purrs. We appreciated it. Purrs!

You both are good-lookers!

Milo James Fowler said...

I could see them distracting me, too -- since I'm allergic to all that fur!

Claudia Del Balso said...

Awww they're so cute! I have two brats at home as well. One of my kitties is my avatar ;)
RE: summer, lucky you! We're still wearing light jackets/trench coats and sometimes boots. It's been a chilly spring and I guess summer, too. :(

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Quite possibly the cutest excuses for procrastination!

Summer has arrived here as well. Thank goodness! We had such a hot summer last year and then this year summer started off so cold...
