Black and White Sunday


Black and white cat Elsa Clair watches me from the window

Elsa Clair


They’re all indoor cats: Dawn, Athena, Calvin and Elsa Clair. I’ve trained them not to want to go outside, but they’re still curious about the happenings on the other side of the glass barrier.

Often, when I take the dogs outside, I’ll get that feeling that I’m being watched. Then I’ll look up and see someone–or several someones–staring at me.

In today’s photo, Elsa Clair plays the part of the cat in the window.


Do your pets watch you? What do you supposed they’re thinking?

  1. Beautiful photo! Cody and Dakota both watch us when we leave. Dakota, is sad, Cody is thinking “Just be sure your ass is home on time to feed us”

    What a face…”where are you going without me momma”? Jack watches out the front window whenever I go out without him. SInce you have to climb on a bench in order to see Maggie doesn’t, but she watches out the door.

  5. Mr. N is always watching to make sure I don’t leave without him!

  6. We already mentioned this on FB, but yesterday we were walking by a garden apartment and something made us look at the basement window. There were 3 cats watching us very intently, 2 black and one black/white. They had a great view at ground level. My cats loved looking out the windows we had window perches for them on the back porch and being on the second floor they would be out there all day. The Lady

  7. When I go out with the dogs, the cats don’t pay any attention because they have the whole house to themselves and can run around like crazy!!

    Our cats like to site in the window and watch us too. More often they are in the windows at the end of the day. It makes me think that they are waiting for dinner.

  9. Oh, that’s a great picture! One of our favorite things to do is sit in the window and watch everything that goes on in the neighborhood. We’re the neighborhood watch cats. 🙂

  10. 🙂 we just saw a cat on a leash at the park today. Our neighbor’s cat always watches Sugar.
    It was lovely to meet you at BlogPaws. Golden Woofs, Sugar n mom Rosalyn

    What a beautiful shot of Elsa Clair! We love it when we drive up, and see Moosey or the Girls in the window. 🙂

  12. Dogs N Pawz says:

    She’s beautiful! Love the picture!

  13. Rebekah says:

    She seems very intrigued. Lovely.

    Aww… sweet photo. My Athena is an indoor cat too and she’s always gazing out at the world through the window. Makes me sad, and I feel quite guilty at times, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. It’s a dangerous world out there, especially for our beloved pets.

  15. How cute! My gang is always looking out the window, especially if I or my husband are outside. They always have to know what’s going on!

    • They don’t say cats are curious for nothin’!

      It’s the stare that gets me; sometimes there’s a soundless meow that goes along with it.

      But I know the cats are safer inside, so I can deal with the guilt. 😉
