Rusty came along as a stray kitten, 14 years ago, and stayed. Now he shares a home with four other cats (as well as sundry humans). He's a softie who craves attention.

Last month I put together a collection of ginger cats. The notices were good ("What gorgeous gingas!" - RaeJae). But it was inevitable that the ginger presence would continue on Four Legs Good.

Not just because ginger cats are endlessly popular, but also because I still have a truckload of ginger photos left over from last time - and they must be used! So don't be surprised if russet-coated felines play a prominent role in future Furry Fridays.

Today's lineup is of ginger cats at rest - sleeping or stretching or in some other way recumbent. The overall effect may make you want to curl up, yourself, so make sure you don't try to operate heavy machinery too soon after viewing.

Scroll and enjoy...and don't stop sending your photos.
