  1. I have to say, I still get a kick out of this post a month later. Totes adorbs kitties FTW.

  2. Hahaha! Cats be so inquisitive! I like to pretend mine is inspecting for poison to keep me safe.

  3. omg! i wished my kitchen was lovely like yours and filled with curious cats too!

  4. this is so funny and cute, I have 3 teenage kitten who are seriously curious so I can see all of this happening with them!

  5. haha too cute!

  6. SO Adorable!!!! Thank you for these lovely photos!
    Being a cat lover and a cat companion myself, I know how these little cute furry friends can make life a lot more fun (sometimes more challenging too ;) )
    Thank you, thank you!

  7. Nice to see I’m not the only one with cats in my photos! I thought it was bad when I had one cat, now that I have two….I chase one off while the other is sneaking behind me to get to the food. I think they work together so that one distracts while the other gets to see what’s cooking!

  8. The story of my life :D

  9. This post makes me happy and sad at the same time – love the pics. Your kitties are super adorable.

  10. Hahaha. I love it!! They’re adorable :)

  11. Ha! They really do my cat does the same things. Too cute though to ever get mad.

  12. Aw my cats and my cooking are my fave things to photograph. My three boys would have been all over the place. There is discipline there…really…! Love the photos! :)

  13. I love how it’s almost entirely Sgt. Pepper! And Kalypso, because she owns it all. Desmond must the good kitty who stays out of trouble.

  14. I love your kitties! My cat would have done the same sorts of things. I’m a total cat person, but I must really love my husband a lot because I had to get rid of my cat when I met him. He’s deathly allergic :(

  15. HAHA If I’m shooting on the floor my little dog will do the same thing. :)

  16. I like your Blog a lot, (and I know all of the cat lovers will differ), but cats on counters and in food pictures-GROSS!!!!!

  17. First of all, SOOO cute. My cats act exactly the same way – especially if there is a box to sit in. Secondly, I love that you posted this because I love seeing how other people set up their displays, because I just never know how to set mine up.

  18. Just love your post. Love your cats :). It is really similar to our situations…. We own two curious cats and they want to be everywhere!


  19. I love this post !!! :D :D Zee kitteh will not let you take zee photo! ;)

  20. What beautiful photographs of your sweet kitties! Looks like they’ve mastered the art of “look but don’t touch.”
