Spittyless Sunday

So the Human and her friend went up into the Berkeley Hills Friday (no, they didn't hike, they drove, because they are Doddering Old People*), and the Human made this little video from a spot right above the campus (which is A&W&M's Dad's Alma Mater). You can see the campanile (a 307' bell tower in the middle of campus) and a whole bunch of boring other stuff, too.

Warning: I am not in it. Sigh. But if you listen carefully, you'll hear that at least the Human knew I should be!

*Full disclosure: They actually did attempt a nice hike in Redwood Regional Park, but the Human was hot, and the trail had a lot of uphill, and there were signs like this one:
and warnings about ticks and rattlesnakes, and after about five minutes, she began whining and complaining and carrying on, so their planned hour-long hike turned into a 20-minute walk, perhaps to the chagrin of A&W&M's Dad, who nevertheless gallantly agreed that perhaps this was not the day for a hike after all.

  2. Oh Spitty, your human sounds like such fun. And yes your appearance would have made it all better, not that it wasn't beautiful but a cat is such an addition. And by the way our Person is very doddering too. She can barely make it down to the mail box. Have a great weekend.

  8. Oh, as long as they weren't hungry, I'm sure those mountain lions would have left your human and her companions alone!

    Does that make her feel safer?

  9. OK Spitty, we agree, your Human is lame. Although OUR Mommy would EXPIRE without RUNNING WATER within reach at all times. She is a civilization addict.

  11. A cat would make that better! But then, a cat makes everything better!

    We're glad you have your cloak of invisibility for when the human is around more, Star must have one too.... Or else when I cant find her, she's over visiting you. Oh, she says yes, she will be over later, hoping for some pink beddy snuggles I think..

  17. Your Mommy went hiking!?! My Mommy does do that anymore since she gots old and fat -- er fluffy!
    We's gots a cougar hunting in the river valley that goes through our village. They hunts at night so Kozmo and me is not allowed outsied between 5 pm and 7 am. The Hairy slobbery sisters is not allowed to goes in the back yard after dark and Mommy and Daddy goes out with them when they does their "Business". That Darn Cougar has gots 4 dogs and 6 cats. Me hopes they catches and relocates that cougar before winter!

  18. Spitty, Caroline got all fainty when she saw the title of this! And even though you didn't get to go, she's relieved you're OK. And at least your human thought of you while *she* was out having fun.

  19. Spitty, we'd much rather see you...or at least some mountain lion or something like that.

  20. Mommie says she does not blame your Mommie for not walking around the mountain lion area. They are scary!

  24. first, my Mom says to tell your Mom's friend "GO BEARS"!!!...what ever that means...shakes head..and Mom really luvs that park so she is sad to learn they did not enjoy it. She did not see any mtn lion signs, and they just stayed on the trails, which were very wide...and one was even mostly paved called the creek trail...maybe your Mom didn't go in the main entrance??? Oh! Your Mom can come over and my Mom will walk with her! there ya go, Paw pats, Savannay

Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
