This week’s Photo Hunt theme was wooden. I thought about having a sculpture done of me in wood but then there wasn’t enough time. We do have some wooden cat whatnots around the house but those seemed too typical of a cat blog.
This stump was the most wooden thing we could think of that was some what original. This was a huge tree in our side yard but it was dying. Last summer the tree people came by and insisted that it needed to be cut down. Apparently when the main body of the tree was cut down there was almost a tremor in the earth. It was huge. I napped through it.
So now we are left only with the large stump. Why such a tall stump? There is another tree growing out of the other side, which you can sort of see in the right background. It is still healthy so we will have the stump for a number of years.
Skeeter, LC, and Ayla says
Neat picture! That sure is “wood”.
BTW, The Big Thing knows howta get stumps to compost organically. If ya wanna know, jus ask us… He hadda bunch yearz ago. Doesn’t take buyin annything…
The diameter of the stump shows how big that tree was!! Sad it got brought down though 🙁
Neil Duckett says
That’s one big bit of wood.
Karen Jo says
That’s a huge stump. I hope the other tree continues to do well.
Eric and Flynn says
That is a huge tree stump. Bet the tree would have kept our woodburner going furr a long time.
That looks like a nice climbing toy. perhaps your humans can put it in the house for you girls to enjoy!
I wish I could sharpen my clawrs on that stump! Skeeter, LC and Ayla have a good idea to make the stump somehow turn itself into compost.

Cool pic! Please stop by our blog if you have time… there is an urgent poose message today that perhaps you could help with. (You do have so many important connections!)
Shucks! I could have done a stump.. just didn’t think of it… Good Post!! Come see mine.
That is one *huge tree stump! That’s cool about another tree still growing there, though …
Excellent wood for today’s theme! That surely is one huge tree stump!
Now that looks like a great place to sharpen claws! Only problem is Mom won’t let us out.

It is sad that a tree that big, and hence that old, had to be taken down. But I guess we all have to go sometime.
My entry is up over at Flo’s Place.

Beautiful shot of that huge stamp.

I felt suddenly sad when i saw this cut tree but i have to admit that we do need tree to cut just for everything’s purposes, Happy weekend!
MY LIFE MY WORLD
thats a really good photo you did for photo hunt…. the outdoors… if only i could go..
Great choice for WOODEN!
That was one big tree!! Purrs Mickey
It looks almost like a large flower petal. Pretty cool image.
Gandalf & Grayson says
Oh, very sad for the tree. Mom especially hates to cut any trees down, unless they’re dangerous or diseased, of course.
Perhaps you can repurpose it and make a table top picnic area out of it. It could hold a nice cold beverage with just a little smoothing out.

Looks like a nice scratching stump to us!

We were surprised to come by to catch up and find you are already Prime Minister of Italy. Congratulations are in order.
And by the way, we tagged you.

We have a big stump like that in our backyard, too, from a 200-yer-old catalpa that got hit twice by lightning and died. My mom says she’s going to use it as her garden centerpiece this spring, but I say I’m going outside to scratch it into mulch!
I would say that’s wooden.
Ah… cool shot with a big wood in it (=
Dragonheart & Merlin says
Wow, that is a big stump! Neat that there is another tree growing right next to it. 🙂
Oh yes it’s true you’re very cute and I’m sure no one would hurt you…
Forty Paws says
Wowowowow! BIG tree, and old as well, I should think! It’s left a very beautiful design though – useful for catching the sun?
