Friday Cat Blogging

Mr. “Suave” Takes a Nap

Friday Cat Blogging


[Editor: Property Income ignores the joys of a cat bed to sprawl at the back of my office chair. I not only zapped him with the flash, but he didn’t move when I sat down. I had to physically extract him from the chair. He takes naps seriously.]

Surely Property is exhibiting a serious desire to be skritched!

Else, why am I so tempted to reach right though my screen to do so…?

The posture looks cute but is it really saying “I’m comfortable on YOUR chair and what are you gonna do about it?”

Actually, Steve, he would be alright with tummy rubs, but his brother would leave you a less than functional hand. He was hot and there is a ceiling fan.

What I had to do was bodily remove him when he refused to slither away after I sat down, Jams.

That cat looks seriously underfed.

Uhm, actually, no :-).

Compared to Sox and his brother, he is practically skeletal. He runs it off every other night having a cat fit.

6 Badtux { 06.26.09 at 9:15 pm }

Sox and his brother must be absolutely *huge*.

Cat fits. Ah yes. That’s those things my two do from time to time while I’m trying to sleep, where it sounds like a herd of elephants thumping through my apartment, usually culminating in a couple of fur brains jumping off the top of the book-case onto the bed — i.e., 15+ pounds of fat cat landing on *ME*. Ooof!

Sox comes in at 15 pounds, and Excise at 13. In time Mr Suave will be a bigger cat than either, as he is conforming to the Korat pattern of very slow growth to maturity. His mother wasn’t fully grown until three. He is already taller at the shoulder and longer than any of the others.

Fortunately for the furniture, they don’t often play tag as much as they once did.

Property must have come with the Velcro Attachment®. I had a cat (gone now, sadly) who would attach himself to me each time I sat down, when I slept and sometimes even when I was standing in the kitchen. He’s been gone three years and I still miss him.

Cat fits. Ah yes.

oh yes. yes they’re a surprise when they land on you while you’re sleeping, but an even bigger surprise is when six of them who were sleeping on you [to stay warm in cold weather] suddenly wake up and take off into a catfit.

am i confused? i thought property was the grrrl.

For whatever cat reason, it is the chair that attracts him, SSG. It has to be very cold before he will get on the bed, but he will rocket through the house if he sees me headed towards the chair.

You aren’t confused, I was involved with replacing my Mother’s AC and misidentified him, Hipparchia. He is the eldest, Income, and Property is the grrrl. Since they don’t actually respond to names, I don’t get a lot practice attaching labels to them. I’m claiming a senior moment.

11 hipparchia { 06.28.09 at 10:05 am }

well, i think the fact that they don’t respond to names is reason enough. if they don’t care about names, why should we? i’m still in the process of naming my horde myself, and the dog was nameless for the first 6 months i had him too.

12 Bryan { 06.28.09 at 12:20 pm }

My vet is the only one who cares, but I can’t refer to the “blue tom who monopolizes my chair” here, even if that is what I think when I see him.

Actually, I think of Property as “Squeaky” because of her non-meow, and Excise as “Thump”, the sound of his less than graceful landings on my chest at night.

13 Badtux { 06.28.09 at 2:16 pm }

I never bothered renaming my kittehs from what the Humane Society named them. Well, except for the fake names I invented for them on my blog (they blog under pseudonyms too 🙂 ). It’s not as if they respond to their names anyhow, so why bother making their records confused over what is on the HS papers vs. what’s on the vet’s papers?

Dot is officially known as “6” and Sox as “7” on their vet records, as I paid to have them fixed 8 months before I ended up taking them to my house because their original owner got into major financial trouble and had to give them up.

They respond the same way to either – not at all.
