If you don’t like photos of cats doing cute things, I suggest you click away right now.

Still here?

This is Leo.

He likes to hang out in a bowl on a bookshelf in my living room.


Wait. Is he sticking his tongue out at me?

He spends lots of time in the bowl.

He sleeps.

He stares out the window.

He just, well, he just sits there looking cute.

He makes me smile.

And I hope he made you smile today, too.

    Leo ALWAYS makes me smile. He has some VERY similar habits and poses to his long distance girlfriend, Cleo. She also has her tongue out, often. We wonder what she is thinking. Perhaps best not to ;-)

      I didn’t even realize his tongue was out til I was editing the photo :)

    Oh, Leo! I swoon every time I see you. And giggle, too. Just too cute for words!

      Thanks Suzanne. My hubby thinks I’m nuts for posting his photos so much!

    So adorable! I love how cats have such silly places to lie. :)

      I know. I wouldn’t choose a bowl if i were a cat, though…does not seem comfy!

    Oh, Leo, so very very cute. You remind me of a cat I know, only a lot younger and a lot more flexible!

      They do look so much alike ;)

      Used to be one of my favorite serving bowls, but now it’s his!

    That tongue-out behavior is something my male cat does when he is totally relaxed/sleeping…Love Leo and your photos!

      Thanks Liz…me, too.

    WOW! He looks so much like my cat! That’s crazy :)

      OMG they look exactly alike but your kitty has more white on the chin! I love the photo in the garbage bag…Leo would totally do that!

    He is so absolutely adorable I can hardly stand it. I actually love the fact that he is in the bowl as my ancient furry orange guy likes to do similar things but on my laptop and mouse. While I’m working. Maybe I need to get him his own bowl.

    He is wonderful! Reminds me of my kitty, Chaos. He has the same face, but is short haired. And probably weighs about 20 pounds! Thanks for a big smile to start my day!

    He’s ridiculously cute, I love that he’s found his bed and he’s sticking to it even if he spills out of it at times.

    Cats are weird and wonderful creatures. I have 2 and they never cease to elicit “awww” moments from me. Leo looks like quite the majestic sweetie.

    I’m not even a cat fan, but Winnie, this is too, too cute! Some of those poses are just too much. Totally huggable! :)

    we have a Sparky just like your Leo – makes us laugh all. the. time. Sparky is a Maine Coon and weighs about 20lbs – he’s a pill most of the time and a snuggler only on his terms. Leo is awesome!
