Friday Cat Blogging

Where’s my drink?

[Editor: The lighter of the tabbie kittens naturally assumes that my neighbor’s lawn chair was for her convenience – else there wouldn’t have been a pad on it.]

Interesting how cats adopt a certain piece of furniture as “theirs”. I bet that kitten will be seriously annoyed if the neighbor moves that chair :).

I have a shelf above my computer with a bookcase stereo on it so I can hear my YooToob in full stereo, and Mencken adopted the top of the stereo unit as his, bouncing up onto the computer desk, bounding onto the shelf, then bounding up onto the top of the stereo, at which point he either perched like an Egyptian god or curled up and napped. Well, today I got a Creative Bluetooth speaker set and put it onto the blank spot on the shelf (and hooked it to the main stereo) so that I no longer have to plug/unplug my Macbook Pro into the stereo, I just reach up and press the button on the side of the Creative to turn it on in Bluetooth mode, then hit the volume icon in the title bar of the Mac while holding the option button and select the Creative as the destination. (Which mostly Just Works as you’d expect from a Mac, with the quibble that Bluetooth is annoying in the way it handles pairing and maintaining connections, but we already knew that).

So anyhow, Mencken bounded up onto my computer desk, then prepared to bound up onto the shelf above the computer… and abruptly stopped, because his bounding spot was taken up by that big Creative unit! He sat back on his haunches and *glared* at me for long minutes, as if saying, “Hey! you! Get that thing out of *my* spot!” But I didn’t, so eventually he sulked off elsewhere and appears to be boycotting me, TMF has jumped on my lap several times this evening for his purr-and-massage treatment, but Mencken has been nowhere in sight. Eh, cats ;).

It may be young but its worked out the concept of comfort!

I know what you mean, Badtux, as I have a printer table that has no printer on it because it was taken over as a cat bed before the printer arrived, and putting the printer there didn’t work as it can’t feed with a cat on the paper supply. It was easier to move the printer than to attempt to keep the cat off of it.

That is an ideal location for multiple reasons, Jams. It is not only comfy, it has the additional benefit of being a flea-free zone. The only problem is that it is under a tree, so there is no sun, but it is hot enough that the lack of the sun isn’t a negative at the moment.

i see another little tabby face under the chair…

They are never far apart. There was probably a ‘weasel’ attack after I left in response to the tail moving.

AWWW! Such cute kittens. That little face under the chair is such a terrific feature to the picture. How wonderful!

Actually, OWL, I didn’t notice it until Hipparchia pointed it out, I certainly wasn’t aware of it when I took the shot because I have to use the telephoto capabilities of the camera when trying for pictures of the ferals, and you can’t get much detail on the view finder screen.
