Oh Kitties, Too much pre-Halloween festivity has left me 
All Hallowed Out
That Hell-broth sure was tasty, especially the Adder's fork
but it packed a helluva hangover!

Plus, I'm still picking the bat wool out of my teef. 
No Trick or Treating for this Boy, 
just a nice cup of Tuna Tea and early to bed!

A Breakfast Rhyme on Easy Sunday

Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,--
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Well, a Boy can dream, can't he, 
while he waits for his Fancy Feast?

Stoopy Human Humor

Well, ha ha ha and ha.
Apparently SomeHuman thought this was amusing.

A Clean Face to Face the Day

Nuffing like a little baff to beat the heat
and make a Boy feel all fresh again!

Mouse Tails

At first, I was all, "I'm gonna swallow him whole," 
but then I felt a little nappish.

O mousie

You may think that Spitty don't see you up there, 
but he's thinking about you all the same. 
Constant vigilance, Mousie, constant vigilance.

This Better Be Good, Human

Because I was *really* enjoying my nap.

*     *     *     *     *

Sigh. Somekitties are just never satisfied
till a poor Boy is ambushed 
eating his late-night snack.
There. Can we have a passing grade now
so I can eat in peace? 

Oh, also, evidently some OTHER kitteh thinks I'm
Like there's something wrong with that?

All Right, All Right

Does a Boy have no privacy? I try to be discreet, and what do I get from my furriends? 
Yes, Kitties, this means YOU.  
"O Spitty," they say, "that's not a 'tocks shot. That's
Bum-of-Disrespect shot."  
Oh, all right then! Here!
Y'all happy now?

What're They Doin' Out There?

I thought that was illegal in sixteen states.
Quick! Call the Purrlice!

Small 'Tock

Ha ha ha ha ha--Small 'tock! 

Medium 'tock (with orange mousie):

Kitteh Quintet

Why, Hello my Tiny Friends!
It is good the Human has you for company since I cannot be there for her during the school day. 
I hope you are behaving yourselves and not getting detention!

Our Thursday.....GARDEN Tour

Yes, Kitties, this is our very first It-Is-A-Garden-Tour.
All right, strictly speaking it is not OUR garden. In fact, we had absolutely nothing to do with the planning or maintenance of any of it. But gosh darn it, we feel LEFT OUT on Thursdays!

So this is the little garden at the Human's school. Here's what you see when you are at the top of some steps leading down to the classrooms where the Evil Math Teachers live. Everyone calls it MathLand:
Here's a pleasant little bush. Is it a hydrangea or something? We don't really have any idea.
We know this one! It's a fuchsia. The Human knows that because when she was a little girl she spent a lot of time in Santa Cruz and these were everywhere. Her Grandma called them ballerina flowers.
Hmm. No idea. The Human thinks it looks a little like a pansy, but we are pretty sure it's not.
We're almost positive the next three are roses.
This one was growing from a small tree-ish plant. It kind of looks like it's seen better days.

So, Kitties, that's it: Our First (and probably our last) Garden Tour. It was fun being part of the group for one day anyway, even if we are kind of frauds!

P.S.  In other news, Nellie asks:
Are my eyes green or gold?

I say it's all in the eye of the beholder.

Wordless Wednesday

Yes, really this time. Wordless. I swear.

Tower Tuesday

I love my Tower. Sometimes I lie here and think deep thoughts.
And sometimes I think about what's for dinner.
It's all good.

Mancat Monday

They're baaaaaaack!
Kaspersky updated their update!
We can see you! Hallelujah!

My furz are a little discombobulated today as we continue to stress out over our Blogger issues. (Translation: The **Human** is still fretting and and whining & nutty. Me, I have calmly accepted the situation and patiently await a solution which will ultimately be found. But she is making me crazy.)
Thanks, Kitties, for coming to visit me yesterday. It was very soothing.

The First Real Clue:  Kitties, Are any of you running Kaspersky anti-virus program on your computers? It seems that a Friday update to Kaspersky may have added blogspot to its "blacklist"--aaugh, but at least it's a clue about what the heck is going on!  
NB: Since I use my laptop on the network at my work, I unfortunately can't delete Kaspersky (of course it also means I can't see blogspot blogs there either)! Grrrrr. Just have to make do for awhile I guess! You'll have to forgive us if for now we can only respond to text instead of the pictures of all your glorious selves!
I am fretting today over our Blogger problems. Even though the Human found a temporary way for us to see our own posts (yay, Photobucket!), we still can't see our furiends' pictures! 
We hope crazy Blogger will get a fix going because now the Human is starting to see more unhappy and frustrated people discussing the same problem on the Blogger-Problems site.
Meanwhile, I am here looking all sad and soulful. 
Do you think someone could come over and cheer me up?

Muggy Misery

UPDATE:  6 p.m.
Well, I have found a temp workaround for posting. If I upload my pix to Photobucket first & then load them into Blogger from there, I can at least see my OWN pictures, although no one else's (except non-Blogger friends).  So, it's a start.  We'll see what's what tomorrow.
Sigh, Bad computer!

Hi Kittehs! We loaded these pics before everything went kerflooey on us and we think MAYBE other people can see them....dunno for sure! Happy Caturday to all!
If any smart Blogger folk can help solve our problem, we'll send you a gajillion toonas! (More explanation at top of Friday's post!)
Note:  I've tried Chrome, IE, Firefox, cleared cache, rebooted....done everything I can think of. Aaaaugh! Maybe it's the weather ;-)
Note #2:  Last night, I posted on a Blogger forum for help & this a.m. see several responses & other posts from people having the same issue, so perhaps it IS a Blogger issue? Anyway, stay tuned!
Note #3: I can see pictures at Brian's, Nellie's, Sparkle's, Island Cats--all non-blogspot addresses. This is making me crazy! Well, I'm off to the East Bay for the day...maybe things will heal themselves in my absence!

HELP!  Can anyone advise me about why suddenly today I cannot see images in most blogs--including my own! I can't make images show in a new post or see any pictures in my previous blog posts. I have checked every setting I can think of but nothing seems out of place. I've shut down and restarted and it only seems to be worse! Earlier this afternoon I was able to upload images to a new post, but now I can't see them and any new uploads are just blanks! I don't see this problem mentioned on any blogger help sites so I think it's just me :-(  Any and all advice welcome. We has the sads!

NB:  Isn't it just so very attractive that the Human 
covers the "nice" chairs with these colorless comforters? 
A decorating touch worthy of Architectural Digest.

Double Exposure

Hello, Kitties!
So, a few people asked yesterday what my crack crunchy bowl contained, so I will tell you! It's a mixture of Royal Canin "Indoor Beauty," Wellness salmon flavor, with a few Fancy Feast bits tossed in for their fabulous tastiness. I tell you, my furiends, it's a flavorlicious festival of kibble!
I am also thrilled beyond words that my darling Admiral is feeling kittenish & frisky today. Yes, we had a lovely evening, but Spitty don't kiss and tell...much.
And me? Well I'm enjoying this lovely Thursday in my pawsome hammick. Life is good!

I really like my new crunchies!
As you can see (or maybe you can't because the picture is what they used to call overexposed, though that probably is not the term anymore since nobody uses film), I have an untouched little plate of stinky goodness, just sitting there being ignored because these new crunchies are crack for Spitty.

Looky Looky
My friend Cathy Keisha made me this fantabulous holiday header!
Thanks, CK! I love it!

In the Forest

Looky Looky! Despite her horrifying vet experience 
(surely soon to be a major motion picture),
my friend Cathy Keisha made me this fantabulous holiday header!
Thanks, CK! I love it!
Today I'm chillaxing amid the forest of chair and table legs, 
meditating on the drama unfolding daily on Wall Street
The Human keeps watching the stock market 
and fretting and worrying
but I figure as long as there's food money and a toy fund
it's all good. 
Hey, maybe I can get a job--
I hear Cat Fancy magazine needs a centerfold?

Snoozy on Mancat Monday

Seriously, could I be any more adorable?

Sunday, October 9, 2011

I'm Toesie-licious!

That's right--come closer for a tiny nibble. 
Spitty won't bite.

What Are You Doing?

I can see you're trying to awkwardly reposition the flashy box 
to take a picture from the opposite side, but honestly, 
it's damn annoying and I wish you'd stop it. 
Have I made myself clear?

U is for Utopia

Which is a perfect state of being. 
Like me.

Therapeutic Thursday

Toy time is very soothing to my spirit.
So why is it that the Human has been so negligent 
in this regard for several weeks? 
Just what will it take
to encourage more frequent playtime?
