This is Jeff in his most favorite place in the yard: under the lavender shrub.

Jeff in his favorite place

For some time Staff did not understand why this place is so special. When the other cats started competing for a chance to possess it, an investigation was launched.

As it turns out, there’s a nice patch of catnip randomly growing there.

When Jeff is through rolling in it, he sleeps on it. This has generally resolved any competition issues.

    I bet those nice warm rocks have something to do with it too 😉

    That first one, the sort of medium distance one with jeff sleeping? 090314-1.jpg? Sigh…that’s beautiful. Everything about it: the light, the growing things, the stone wall, knowing it’s his favorite spot, everything.

    Catnip growing randomly? I think not. Jeff is so magnificent that catnip grows spontaneously wherever he steps. True story.

    It’s cat heaven.

    Seriously! A sunny spot, warm rocks, spontaneous catnip. There was divine intervention at work there. Probably due to Jeff’s many *offerings.* (Imaging what he’d be blessed with if he didn’t chomp down most of the critters first!)

    I agree with alex. Really great picture. I wonder if the calming effects of the scent of lavender that we humans experience occurs in our feline friends as well. Thanks for this online cat chronicle!
