The Trio Keeps Watch

 

The trio were sitting on one of the coucheswatching wildlife out the window when the silly human walked by and stopped to say hi.
Fortunately no creature worth mentioning crossed their territory. The birds and squirrels are safe for another day.

Cat Bodies per Square Meter

Yes, it’s the trio modeling just how many fully-stretched-out cat bodies you can comfortably fit in a single kitty bed at one time.  Of course, when the human and her camera got too close, The Big C put on his scowly face.  Even the Smirky One looks a bit aggrieved.

Meeting of the Minds

Corky was laying in one of the kitty beds when Caesar jumped up and decided to hop into an adjacent kitty bed. The Big Guy soon started mixing up a storm on the fleece fabric and singing a song.  Corky wasn’t sure if he was comfortable with how close Caesar was so they had a bit of a stare down.  Caesar ignored the Corkster and went on mixing and singing, so Corky settled down. Soon Caesar also curled up and they both fell asleep.

Squashed

First Caesar was laying in one of the kitty beds next to the human, who was reading. Next, Fireball hopped in and curled up beside the Big Guy.  Not long after, the Merkitty joined the party. Since there wasn’t much room left, she flopped across both Tiger Boys.  No one seemed to complain, but there wasn’t much room left in the kitty bed.

Just Hanging Around

This is Corky hanging out under a chair on the cute cat hammock.  You’d have to be looking for him to see him unless you were paying particular attention to the floor.  Presumably that’s what makes both hammocks so popular with the cats:  the opportunity to watch the human and other cats without being bothered in return.

Who Invited You?

Caesar and Mac were having a cuddle.  The silly human showed up and started taking pictures.  The Big Guy leaned back to see what the human was doing.  Not surprisingly, he gave the human “that face” and kept his paws on the Merkitty.

Clean Feet

This is Fireball washing his paws.They get so dirty running around on rugs all day.  <<If you don’t keep your paws in pristine shape, you might not be able to race up and down the stairs like a comet in the sky.  Besides, your brother might make fun of you.>>

Do You Think this is All An Excuse to Run Away and Play with Dogs?

<<It wouldn’t be the first time that our human disappeared for a day or two and came back smelling like a stinkin’ dog.  Maybe she’s off cheating on us. Sure hope she doesn’t bring one of those wretched creatures home with her. She does that, you know. Any poor abandoned creature will do.>>

Alien Invaders

See that little tail? It belongs to a cute chipmunk who likes to hang out in the bird feeder eating seeds. Said chipmunk is darned lucky that there are 2 panes of glass between him/her and the cat who is watching this alien invader.  He or she runs up and down the screens, which happen to be on the outside of the windows in this house, coming and going from the feeder. Sometimes the chipmunk and a little red squirrel who does the same thing (although never at the same time) will go sprinting up or down the screen right in front of one of the cats.  You can just bet that Pepe is on the job monitoring the yard and alerting the human to this insulting behavior.  If Pepe could get through the glass panes and the screen, he’d make fast work of that little creature. How disappointing that the human doesn’t help him do so.

City Kitties’ Cousin Pops in

<<While we wait for the bad human to get her act together out in the doghouse, here’s Juno (aka Junipurr), our cousin.  She’s chilling out and waiting for her human to give her some love.  Come to think of it, so are we. Awww.>>
