I promised you a funny photo. This is 3yr old Evie sunbathing.

I call her Stuart's dog as she likes to play fetch with him, goes racing to the door when he comes home and is just very uncat like in her behaviour. She stayed like this for such a long time that I considered going and putting sunscreen on her tummy :D.

Well, I better be off to join in with LOTV'S challenge. See you again soon.
