Tummy & Tails for Tuesday!

It's Tuesday, which means that Lisaviolet's Diary is featuring lotsa nd lots of tummies today! It's also the day that Gattina and those other Cats on Tuesday Bloggers tell us all about their cute, wacky kitties.

But today BJ and KC wanted to show off not their tummies, but their tails.

The only time these two can be seen this close to each other is when they are hungry and there is food before them both. Once the hunger has been satisfied it's almost as if they suddenly realise how close they are physically to each other, they give each other nasty looks and growls and one of them will usually walk away with a hiss! :-D

Max, on the other hand, has no problem showing off his tummy this Tuesday!

Man Cat Monday

When I saw this picture of Stripe's paw, I immediately thought of the words to the Hokey Pokey song! :-)

"Put your left paw in
Put your left paw out
Put your left paw in and
Then you shake it all about..."

Weekend Cat Blogging & The Friday Ark!

The thing with Sebastian is this. If you bring anything new into the house or happen to put something new down on a chair or on the floor he feels compelled to go and lie on top of it. New shoes, new curtains, new clothes...new anything. Here he is lying on top of my new curtains. As long as they were down on the chair this was his new sleeping place.

Puddy at it's a Byootaful Life is hosting this Weekend Cat Blogging Party nad is having an optional "Yellow" Theme in honour of the Simpsons Movie opening. Although I can't stand the Simpsons (gasp!!) Sebastian wanted to participate 'cause he just loves themes...and he just looooves to be in the spotlight! :-D

And don't forget that every single Friday The Modulator invites us all to come aboard the Friday Ark so make sure to join in the fun and visit both parties this weekend!

And she nails the landing! :-D

Man Cat Monday

This is the longest period of time that Stripe has kept his flea collar on. Needless to say he hates it. He usually manages to get it off within half an hour of it being put on him.
It's always so funny to see him for the first five minutes after he gets his collar. He does this little dance and backwards shuffle. Then he goes around in a circle - backwards, pulling his head back. :-D
Then he runs outside and about half an hour later he's back. Without the collar.

Tummy and Toes for Tuesday

Boy. Cats sure are the experts on the art of sleeping and sleeping well. One such expert is my own Max. This fat boy is famous for his sleeping marathons. He'll get up, stretch, eat, sit for a while in a daze, yawn and then go right back to sleep.
No wonder he's so fat! I wish I could get him more active. And no, he doesn't play with toys. I'll throw a ball or some other fun toy at him and he'll just look at it with utter disdain and turn his head away. The only things he gets excited about are pens and pencils. He'll play quite vigourously with a pen for about...30 seconds and then with a bored yawn flop back down somewhere and off to sleep he will go.
Anyway...here he is, fast asleep. He didn't even notice me as I snapped several shots of his cute white tummy. Make sure to head on over to lisaviolet's diary for the line up of more cute tummy shots today and every Tuesday!

Man Cat Monday

I had a plant in this basket. Over the weekend I put the plant outside so it could get some sunshine. I get back inside and hear a shuffling sound coming from the basket and this is the sight that greeted me: Sebastian.

A Tail for Thursday

Stripe is very protective of his tail. He doesn't like it touched, interfered with, admired, praised, spoken about or meddled with in any way by anybody, no matter who you may THINK you are. He doesn't like it when other cats get too close to it. He loathes it when humans think they are allowed to touch it. If you get too close he will warn you by growling. If you do not immediately retreat from the tail he will growl a little louder. If you still decide to be obstinate (whether consciously or not) he WILL slap you very, very hard. If necessary he will draw blood.
As I snapped this picture he was giving me the second warning : the growl. I snapped the photo very quickly and then beat a hasty retreat.

Tummy and Toes for Tuesday

Every Tuesday the cats gather for a very special party called Tummy Tuesday. The venue is over at lisaviolet's diary and man are there some lovely tummies out there in the catblogosphere! :)

Today over at lisaviolet's diary Potter stretches out his tummy for all to admire!

Here's Ms. KC's tummy this Tuesday along with some toes too!

Man Cat Monday

After this Weekend's Cat Blogging and the fun party on the Friday Ark, BJ was completely worn out. I caught him napping yesterday behind a couple of flower pots. BJ normally likes to sleep under trees outside in the open. When I saw the curled up ball of fur here behind the flower pots I thought at first that it was KC as this is normally her favourite place to snooze. I somehow suspect KC would not have been pleased to know BJ was in her spot as they cannot stand even the very sight of each other and have never, ever gotten along with each other for even one second!

Weekend Cat Blogging

What? It's the weekend? Already? How did it come back around so quickly?

Well, no time to waste! Let's go make sure we get a really good spot on the Friday Ark, you know... the spot right by the air conditioning vent. I'm sure that's where we'll find Upsie blogging this very hot July Weekend.

The Cutest Kitty?

Well Kashim and Othello , in celebration of their new blog, had a contest. It was a fundraiser for Megan's Elija's rescue.

We were all asked to submit our cutest pictures and to tell why we thought they were cute. As we wanted to help out with such a worthy cause, and...ahem...not because we think we are all that cute...ahem...we, along with so many cute kitties sent in our entries and Kashim and Othello did the round up. Well! Weren't we surprised to hear the news that Sebastian won the contest!! Yeah! We're so very excited about this news!

Sebastian was so excited in fact that he decided to do another cute pose for his victory photograph.

He insists that he was only posing for the camera and most definitely did NOT happen to fall asleep like this! UhhHuh. :-D

Thanks so very much to Kashim & Othello for having this fun contest and to all who participated in this worthy cause. We had so much fun looking at all those cute pics!
