Could this be the reason my containers don't do well?

Hmmm......

Glad to see my cat isn't the only one who does that...even after I put a basket with a pillow in it for her to sleep in. Darn cat!

Could very well be the reason. Amazing if anything would survive and thrive with a cat lying on it. Good luck with your containers.

Oh my! How kind of you to allow her/he to continue sleeping. I have several of my neighbor's cats enjoying my garden as well..including my birds..
Good luck!

Keeps the birds from nesting in your containers!

Oh, that kitty is precious! You just need to teach him not to jump on other containers.

Actually, I think your containers are doing very well as a cozy nap space! :o)

Loafing.

See how clever kitty is, searching out the higher soil temperatures in the pot to kip, and elevated too - perfect.

Felicia said...

Oh my goodness. That may explain my pot difficulties as well. Such a sweet kitty, how can you disturb her? :)

The cat says 'well this is the perfect size to cozy up in'. No plants can stand up to that. LOL.

Such a fine kitty specimen..."anyone" can grow an ole flower...LOL

Tough decisions happen every day in the garden. No doubt if you put one there for kitty, he would choose the planted one.

She looks adorable, that is if she/he doesn't poop in the pot! ;)
