If you watch as much reality television as I do, you probably know that it almost all about dog-dogs-dogs, Which is fine, but imagine my elation at seeing Gizmo join the cast of Bravo's Southern Charm and then to see his owner, Craig, was bringing him out in the garden with him just sent me over the moon!
The tweet above shows a GIF of Gizmo enjoying some time out in the garden.
Gizmo has his own Instagram feed here, where he has opined that: "#gardening." He says he is a "chubby Persian with a bad attitude," but I think he is quite svelte and any kitty that rides in a garden cart cannot be too misbehaved, right?

My gardening pal, Anne Hardeman, is a fellow cat lover as well. Her kitties all stay indoors for their safety, but even inside cats have "cats in gardens" moments!
Anne writes: "This is my Maine Coon kitty Beau lounging in my greenhouse window. Leave it to this sweet giant to find the primo spot for sunbathing! It might be cold outside, but he is happy to settle in with my miniature orchids..."

Last week I stayed at the lovely Pheasant Run Farm Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster, PA. On the grounds were several barn cats (they actually live in the old chicken house). Most of them were very camera-shy, but I managed to get shots of two of the friendlier ones.
And here also are a few more photos of the farm setting to give you an idea of the beauty of the place. In a few more weeks, everything should be bursting into bloom and be even more gorgeous!

Joe Luebke of Hyattsville, MD, USA, said, “This is our neighbor Rose Fletcher cat, Tulli. She loves to climb this ‘Forest Pansy’ Redbud and eat the flowers. She showed up at their house and had six kittens -- all adopted off. She has been spayed and hangs out with two dogs now.”
Joe is a Horticulturist with GSA and was a longtime staffer at the Washington National Cathedral's gardens.
