Ella having a sleep in the plant pot!

ABC Wednesday was an idea I had back in 2007 and we are just about to enter Round 7! It is a fun project which takes place every week from 5pm on a Tuesday evening, or whenever convenient.Basically we take a letter of the alphabet and post a picture, text, poem - anything which has a link . Many of you have had a go, some in fact have been aboard since the very first round, but do check it out and do feel welcome to hop aboard! Easy to leave your name on the ABC Wednesday blog!


  1. looks a trifle uncomfortable to me but what a precious shot you've taken of ella!

  2. She just about fits in there! :)

  3. She doesn't quite fit but looks happy!

    I stopped doing ABC Wed as I found working full time gives me little time to participate. If I was the organised type I would sort it out at the weekend! I hope ABC keeps going so I can join when I work less hours.

    Yes it looks uncomfortable but it is one of her favourite places when the sun is shining!

    Snug as a bug in a rug! lol!

    Hop aboard whever you feel like it! Always welcome!

    Indeedy! lol!

  5. We have similar titles this week :-)
    That doesn't look very comfortable.

  6. Congratulations on a fab idea and meme!!
    I have someone going zzz too! yes, great minds think alike!
    ABC-W: Z

  7. Cats can zzzzzzzz anywhere. Sweet.

    Thanks for all your work on the meme, Denise; it has given so many so much fun.

    (P.S. I think you meant "back in 2007, no?)

    Shalom to you and Ella.

  8. It's amazing how cats seem to be able to sleep anywhere and in any position! She looks like a little darling. I used to have a little black cat we called Smudge!

    She loves it there - so strange! lol!


    well spotted - now corrected to 2007!

  10. Looks like a perfect fit to me! Fun capture, Denise! Thanks for the ABC fun and I'm honored to be a part of your team!! Here's to another round!! Cheers!


  11. Great pic for Z! I am so glad you came up with the idea of ABC Wednesday back when, cause its a lot of fun. My favorite meme of the week!

  12. is it only three years sometimes it feel like 10 months and sometimes 10 years!

    I'm not off to zzzzz yet though I sometimes think about it.

  13. I love ABC Wednesday and I thank you so much for starting it. I am excited to begin #7. Been here since the start and love the challenge of seeing the world through different eyes.

  14. Clever - a potted cat! CoZy. Thanks for starting and continuing ABC. It's such a pleasure to see photos from around the world, to read others thoughts and comments. Always a delight - thanks, Denise.

  15. Congratulations on this fantastic idea that seems to be getting bigger by the week!

    And I love your z for this week. Mind you, nothing can go wrong with a cat in the photo...

  16. It is amaZing how catZ can find comfort in almost any place!

  17. I love the way a content cat finds a place to sleep. They can sleep anywhere.
    Give me a ring when you plan to come to Rotterdam. My daughter Thyme(also on the blog) and I live only 15 kms from Rotterdam and a 20 minutes walk from the windmills.

  18. Cats do sleep in the funniest of places :-)

  19. Ella looks like one content cat!

  20. Such a clever shot of a very clever kitty! Thank you Denise for starting this meme and keeping it up - looking forward to the next round!

  21. Surely a sound one would love to hear. Please have a nice Wednesday.

    Thankfully we haven't all been zzzzz-ing on the job!

  23. What an adorable photo! A perfect ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!
    Take care!

  24. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww she is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo gorgeoussssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. I see kitty with slightly opened eyes as if to say, 'why are you bothering me with that camera?'
    He, he, a good title for this would be 'cat in a pot'!!

  26. I love a cat's ability to look as if they planned it that way in the most ridiculous of circumstances. Great photo!

  27. It may looks uncomfortable for human, but I believe the cat snugly fit in there! perfect place for some zzzzzzz

  28. what a pretty kitty!
    & thanks for starting this meme Denise. It's always fun.

  29. I have grown catnip and cattails, so I guess it isn't that far a stretch to grow a cat plant.

    I wonder what would happen if you watered it?

    Thanks for allowing me to be part of your team for ABC Wednesday, it has been an adventure!

    Looking forward to round seven!

  30. Goomorning! Now I´m awake, and I´m happy to join in!
    Cute cat!

  31. Dear Denise,
    Lovely shot! Such a sweet sleepy kitty! I could use some more of those zzzzzzs! But I can't just sleep anywhere! Cats are great sleepers!

    Thank you for making abc-Wednesday! It is a great idea and I love it.

    Best wishes,

    Anna's Z-words

  32. Isn't it amazing the places cats will settle for a nap! We buy them these wonderful cushy beds and they choose a pot! Go figure!? This is an adorable photo!

  33. I wish I could sleep like a cat! Looking forward to the next round- I have a plan for it already!

  34. I suspect I may be repeating what's already been said, but here I go anyway. Cats can sleep in the funniest places and positions! Great photo. I am looking forward to participating in the next round all the way through!

  35. remarkable z post,
    love that cat.

  36. I'm always amazed when my cats find these odd sleeping arrangements. Funny! Thank you again for your comments and for coming up with such an ingenious and fun ABC Wednesday theme!

  37. Bonjour sweet friend,
    What a perfect play to take a loooong nap!I think it's such a cool idea!
    purrs and love

  38. Eleanor Farjeon was right - 'Cats sleep anywhere'. Great shot!

  39. Dear Ella,

    I am commenting today for my pet, Ethelmae, since I feel we have a close kinship here.

    I, too, am a solid black feline, quite beautiful if I do say so myself. As are you, my sweet. I see that we both share the occasional white hair, and our hair is of roughly the same length - oh wouldn't you hate to be burdened with the long locks of some of our cousins, like those snooty Persians?

    This flowerpot of yours looks so tempting, but I cannot find an empty one at my house - Ethelmae has all of mine filled to overflowing with flowers - IMAGINE! The closest I can come to that kind of comfort is the punch bowl. It's actually quite nice, high above everyone on the top of the kitchen cabinets above the refrigerator. I can curl inside, sleep peacefully, and view everything below me through the glass of the bowl. I highly recommend this.

    And the best part is that your pet will go out and buy ANOTHER punch bowl for use at parties, so that she doesn't ever have to bother yours! Oh yes, punch bowls are definitely the way to go!

    Happy perches!


  40. I have a flower trough with the same pattern. I will cyber post it to you.. It looks like a more comfortable bed than you round one. I must go and take a photo so I don't have to dig for the old one.

    It also has dead plants. Maybe some one's cat has been sleeping on it.

  41. It's amazing how cats can balance on the rim of a plant pot and still sleep on it! Great pic!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking time to post a comment on my Zen Garden post. This is my 2nd or 3rd time at ABC Wednesday, and it's been so much fun. I'm so glad I found it. I hope to join you in Round 7. Thanks for hosting!

  42. How do they fold themselves into such tiny spaces? The definition of flexible.

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I've really enjoyed participating in ABC Wednesday and look forward to another round. There will be an updated badge, right? I'm finally figuring out how to get them up on my sidebar. Woohoo.

  43. Congratulation and we had such fun with ABC. Thanks!

  44. What an adorable picture ! Cats always find the most special places, lol !

  45. Lovely!
    The cat in the pot:this could be a nursery ryme!

  46. This is the first time that I come here. In the next thursday I'll post a picture.

  47. Cats get in the strangest places and thoughly enjoy themselves.


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
