Friday Cat Blogging

The stuff on the table? It’s around here somewhere?

[Editor: Ringo has adopted Sox’s habit of jumping onto the table and sweeping it clean before laying down. She goes Sox one better by not sailing off the other side when she jumps on the table.

You have to love that “come hither” expression.

It was more “get lost”, because of the flash.

A “go thither” expression?

Some cats have exceptionally soft fur. Ringo looks as if she might be one of those. Am I correct? or is it just the color and reflectiveness that makes her look that way?

As to the clean sweep, it’s merely the most extreme of a typical housecat behavior toward tables. Samantha jumps on a table and immediately begins drinking any water she finds there (even from a glass; she hasn’t tipped one over yet, not even during hasty retreat as we chase her off) and investigating anything she thinks might be edible. Ringo is merely assisting you with the housekeeping: if there’s no food or drink there, nothing else on the table is important.

All she needs is a bikini, a bottle of sunscreen and a tall glass of lemonade.

Steve, her fur is like velvet, while Sox is like mink. It isn’t fair, because Dot is the one that tolerates sitting in your lap for an extended period.

Anya, she’d probably prefer a martini.

She’s always ready for flattery.
