Cat Pride

17

Mom has this really annoying thing that she does.  She walks around the house looking for one of us Furry Bambinos, while calling out “Who wants a hug?”

That’s our cue to vamos, hide, and make ourselves scarce.

If she finds one of us, she grabs us, picks us up, and given a human style hug.  Blech!

Mom, we are cats.  We do not want to be hugged.  Petted, scritched, told how beyootifull we are, YES. Hugged, NO!  You are destroying my image as a Big Man Cat!

If you do it again, I am calling the ASPCA.

I feel sorry for Meerkat and Padre! 

As you regular readers know, I only has one eye.  I had an infection as a young kitty and they removed my right eye.  It’s okay, though.  It was just an extra one as far as I can tell. 

Go ahead … try and get closer!

I can jump to high places.  I can catch and deadify mousies in the dark.

Panda Bear pins down the mouse!

I can get into “things I’m not supposed to”.

Panda Bear in the Refrigerator!

I can play Thundering Herd of Elephants with Meerkat and Padre.

Up the down staircase

I can chase and catch birdies on a string.

Panda Bear gets the red thing

I can be a pirate!  I’m fast and agile and nothing stops me from exploring! 

Panda Bear playing in the snow!

On the outside looking in

A stroll in the snow

And I can catch moths with my paws!

Poor Meerkat and Padre need two eyes to do all that!  How untalented of them.  Guess that’s why I’m so special!

Gramma sent me a really great cartoon recently.  It’s from a comix called “Mutts”.  Maybe you have it in your newspaper.  If not, you can go to their website and see the comix.  Daddy says something about “copy rite infrringment” if we post it here.  So, go read the Mutt’s cartoon

Hooray for one-eyed kitties like me!  We’re super great and don’t have any extra parts!

We were tagged by Bear and Shadow, and are hard at work on our “7 Useful Things” Meme. We will post it this weekend!

sycophant:  n. a servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by flattering influential people.

there he is just sitting on missus human’s lap and purring like his life depended on it.  and the way he took to the presents she brought!  i for one am not as easily bought.  here’s my idea of a cool cat toy:

An Even Better Toy!

between my brother and big grey cat, i don’t know who is the worse lackey. they follow missus human around from room to room and then (gasp!) sit in her laphave they no pride?  they worship mister human in the same manner.

big grey cat meets the humans every time they come in through the front door.  in fact, now that i remember it, when the missus human opened the door to our dorm room at the boarding school, my brother immediately jumped into missus human’s arms and turned on the purr-motor.  i guess i should have seen this coming.

you won’t catch me fawning all over the humans like my brother and big grey cat.  i will continue to resist the humans’ attempts to turn me into a groveling, kowtowing lap cat.  i am kitten, hear me roar!
