Coco Selfie

It's Coco.
And it's Sunday. A purrfectly good day for us to share a selfie. And that selfie is of me, of course.

Last time we blogged Z-Girl promised a few photos of our newly finished front room. I'd just like to add that this is MY room. I love lounging on the big ottoman, I sleep inside the armoire, and also enjoy stretching out on the rug or the concrete floor, depending upon temperature and my mood. So of course, now everyone wants to hang up here. Valentina has her perch, and Manhattan really likes the ottoman. Now even that stripped foster cat Picasso likes take naps here. This is why I take refuge inside the armoire.

Please keep in mind that Z-Girl uses her iPhone, so these are native pictures. We'll see if we can invite Miss Wendy back to do a photo shoot when we get a replacement table and a nice mirror for the wall.

Allow me to explain what you see in this picture:
When entering the apartment, this is what you see to the left. The armoire is beautiful and is such a nice space for me. Z-Girl leaves the door ajar so I can go in and out as I please. There is also a dresser, and behind the dresser is a curtain with paper wall art hanging from an old piece of wood, suspended from the ceiling. Guess what is behind the curtain? Some of our litter boxes, and shelves to store extra cat food, our cat carriers, tools and some cleaning supplies! It's really nifty because for a long time, this was open and exposed. It didn't look very inviting at all.
The ottoman is in front of both white pieces, covered with a pretty AND snuggly blanket. The pillow on top of it is a style called Valentina! (we didn't name it--that's how it is listed for sale!!)

 This picture shows the right side of the room, where you can see how the hallway runs. You will notice here the KittyPod by Iti and also the Pet Fusion scratcher. Vali and Manhattan love those and spend a lot of lounge time there. When Z-Girl hosts her big party every October, all of these items are moved to the bedroom area and they move along with them!!

This is another photo, with better lighting, that shows the entry table and chairs. Z-Girl is in search of a nice mirror to hang above the table and ultimately wants to replace this one. But it does the trick, for now.

On the wall we have paintings by artist friends. We live in an artist live/work space so Z-Girl has accumulated pieces that she is so happy about having as part of a collection. The best part about each piece is that she knows the artists personally so it makes them really special.

This room is designed as a dressing room, as it is closer to the bathroom than the bedroom area; and it's away from the windows! But it doubles as a sitting room, and triples as our kitty powder room.

Hope you enjoyed getting to see my crib.

We are joining in the Sunday Blog Hop,  at The Cat on My Head, why don't you hop on over to see some other cool blogs?

 Coco, out.


  1. That's a great selfie, Coco. It was nice of you to show us your apartment with all your hideaway places. Your human has very nice furniture.

  2. What a lovely crib you have, for sure, and such gorgeous furniture. I have to say us cats do deserve these little essentials to keep us purring. When you have finished with that Otterman chap, could you send him round to me as I need someone to do some work for me and he sounds quite handy MOL
