It's the Autumn Equinox, the first day of Autumn.
A lovely time for a new set of paws to come and live at the cottage.
The trees are now starting to display their sunset colours.
Green giving way to yellow, gold and red.

Here he is, the new set of paws that came with the post this morning.
My pay it forward gift from Carole at Prim n Raggedy.

How kind and thoughtful to make Soggibottom cottage a cat to sit in the window.
Especially after the last few months when some of our beloved pets have gone merrily on their way through old age.

Mew noticed straight away.

I love the idea of pay it forward.

Kindness really does matter

Carole's cat arrived just on the right day. Smiles all round.
I know there are two Soggibottom readers who are going to help me pay it forward yet again. There is always room for one more.

Soggibottom also had a sunshine award last week, this is the first time I have had the opportunity to tell you about it. Thank you for thinking of us Shellie we love the award.
Especially the colours.

I know I should pick a number of other blogs and pass it on, can't do that.
I hope you will all share the award.
Make someone else smile and pass the sunshine award on.

Frank and Mew haven't pushed the new set of paws out of the window.
They were watching the last rays of the setting sun last night.
They might have to squash up a bit closer tonight as the window seat is starting to fill up. Frank might have been watching for anything that moved !

Cute kitty! Lovely gift for you. Amazingly I only this week realized that in your part of the world the season changes on the equinox. Over here we start our seasons on the first of the month - 1st Jan (Summer), 1st April (Autumn), 1st July (Winter) and 1st Sept (Spring). I learnt something new thanks to you. Enjoy your new kitty. I'm always intrigued to see who will be next to look out of that lovely window.

Mew does look a little unsure of this new checkered cat in your cottage!! Don't worry Mew this new one won't steal your food :)

What a sweet gift, Midge! The new kitty looks darling by the bear. Congrats on your award too! I can't remember if I owe you an email or not, I'll go check in a bit - very windy here, not sure if we're going to hang on to our power or not, yikes!
