We.Are.Not.Amused.

I must address those cruel and unkind suggestions Thursday that I have now grown too zaftig for my chair-hammick. 

Kitties, I am wounded to the very core.

It is the incompetence of the Human
in fastening those complicated straps,
coupled with my joy in unwrapping them,
that has brought this hammick low.

Tomorrow, or next week, or surely 
sometime, the Human will attempt to re-attach the straps and I will resume my efforts to undo them.  All will be well.



Five hours later . . .




Now, see, the Stoopy Human 
re-hung it (crookedly). 
Soon, I will undo the straps again.

Oh Spitty, we would never accuse you of being too zaftig! Something about living in glass houses and throwing stones. ;)

Keep up the good unwrapping werk Spitty! But what a briliant idea to attach a hammick unner a chair; we have some that are never used (so there would be no dangerous Bein feets around), but they have stretchers what would get in the way.

Zaftig? NEVER! You are merely...um...robust.

I thought you were fluffy

Catio Tales said...

The scales never lie, King Spitty. Nor does gravity as it drags the hammick down to earth. Has she got superglue ?

Of course your ability to undo the ties is never to be questioned too.

Oh Spitty!
mes KNOWS it was our ear washing that knocked the Hammick Down!!! Don't lets your human suggest it is your (now round) tummy.
Still tingling

PS - Mes hopes your human is feeling better!

Dearest Spitster, we NEVER meant to be unkind. It is SO obvious that your human is the culprit here and not your handsome physique.

Oh Spitty you look so regal sitting in your hammick.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

I don't see what you think is extra weight on you, so I would never suggest that. Frankly I think the spare poundage is in your imagination.. I did suggest that the hammock fell because you wrassled too many ladycats in it *snickers* I still think that might be part of it! But it does not surprise me that you undo the straps yourself! MOL

Star says: Well I'm glad it wasn't me making that thing fall because I'd hate to give up a snuggle spot at your place. Of course you undo the straps! If the human can't hang it correctly, evenly, and perfectly, it's up to you to point it out so she can try, try again! Now, can I come over and bounce in it with you until it falls so she can make another attempt? Purrrrrrr

I think it sounds like more fun to untie the hammock than sleeping in it!

dArtagnan Rumblepurr/Diego Hamlet Moonfur said...

Dude. You are perfect mancat size.

Perfect.

Kjelle Bus aka Charlie Rascal said...

Spitty , who said you where getting to zaftig for your hamick ?!
Just tell me ho and I go and punch that person right on the nose !!

Brian said...

Well, it does look like fun while it lasts but I think I would untie those things too Spitty!

Katie Isabella said...

Boy, looks like you have another International ally, Spitty. And a furry handsome one too. His latest harness has FLAMES on it! Whew...what an ally@

Katie Isabella said...

Sorry for the @. xxoooxx

Spitty my darling...you are perfect in every way. Always. xxxooo

that's why I don't have one. I AM too "zaftig" or however you spell it, for one!

Pat Hatt said...

LOL you fill it out just fine, blame the human every time

We hope you deduct something out of their pay for such horrible service! Lee and Phod

The Indulged Furries said...

Spitty, I cannot believe you are too hefty for your hammock. You're half floof! Hopefully your human was having an uncoordinated day when she hung your hammock and will fix it so you don't have to lounge at an odd angle.

Mariodacat said...

He he - Spitty pal - you are always one step ahead of your human aren't you. Good job. We have to keep them on their toes.

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

Hmmm... It seems to me that a ham-mick lyin' on the floor is nothin' more than a mat. Just sayin'....

Purrs,

You are not too zaftig, you look fabulous. I think it's a general problem with this hammicks. Once my dad had a crash landing too with such a hammick, maybe they are recycled products from former ejection seats?

Terri said...

Spitty, the obvious problem here is the chair legs are not splayed out enough! The hammock just slides down ;)

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

I think the best strategy is a human-proof hammock. There are too many things they can do to make us look bad.

Stacy Hurt said...

Dearest Spitty,

At first I thought you might be falling victim to that character flaw that Royalty sometimes possess. I am speaking of course, of paranoia. I am absolutely certain no kitty would be so crass as to make any direct link between your size and the fact that your hammock had fallen to the floor.

I feel you might be thinking that sharing this perceived insecurity is simply a way to provide the illusion that you are like the rest of them. That's just nonsense.

Snap put of it at once.

You need a hammock like ours. It won't ever make you feel too zaftig...but you might get sore teeth and a sore bum if you tried anything cheeky...

Sparky Spitfire said...

Zaftig? wuzzat? sounds like the name of a Heidelberg Zeppelin company, which SURELY no one intended in reference to YOU. Unless it also means 'seductively stealthy panther-like Zeppelin..." which it could, German is odd like that, I hear...anyhoo...just make sure teh hammock has enuff tensile strengths to hold me in it too. Auf Weidersehen, liebling...

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Spitty we thought you looked quite content in your hammick!

Unknown said...

You are purrfect in our book, Spitty. We got 'one of those comments' awhile back - something about weighing in. We don't weigh here!

(angel) Grrreta and Fam said...

We thought you were testing out some sort of kitty slingshot. We're relieved it was just a hammock.

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

I think its great sport for you to undo the hammock again and again. Te he keep the humans on their toes.. Hugs GJ x

Tamago said...

Hahaha it must be fun to undo the hammock and watch your human reattach it. Though you look very comfy in it :-)

CATachresis said...

Spit fella, it is our bounden duty to make the human's lives a misery! Keep on keeping on, buddy!

Cathy Keisha said...

Boy, I totally missed that one. I must be slipping like the hammick. If'n your human put it up a little higher where the other bar meets, it might not slip down but then you'd have to be really thin to climb into it unless the string is a bit longish.

Kitties Blue said...

In spite of your mom's incompetence, you look very comfy in your crooked hammock. Do you think if you keep taking it off the chair, mom will get it tied on correctly? Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We didn't say a thing. At least, we don't think we did. And if we did, well, we didn't. But we really do like those kinds of hammicks and someday, our dad will find one for us. And then you can say whatever you want because we know venting is sometimes a good thing. Purrs...

Oui Oui said...

Maybe your Viceroy could help with that ham-mick problem!

Just Ducky said...

Good help is hard to find Spitty.

Julia Williams said...

Well...I am glad to see it was all fixed and you can nap in the hammick again, Spitty.

Bawahwhahwhhawaa oh Spitty that last photo is HILARIOUS xxooxx

Spitty I must confess that I took note of the sad condition of your strapless hammick the other day but did I make a comment about it?? No....did I say anything about pawsible weight issues being the cause of the low-slung condition of said hamhock - er - hammock?? No....I did not. However, it does look quite comfy and no doubt you will have it BACK on the floor soon. Straps are a fine challenge. Go for it dude.

Kitty Hugs, Sammy

Pretinha said...

Spitty, sua humana precisa mais treinamento agora sei porque você desamarra a sua rede, o serviço foi demorado e torto hehehe

A Tonl said...

holy CAT, what's a kitteh to do, to get good human help these days. Huh?

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Zaftig? All I see is a handsome mancat with perfect fizz-eek lounging in his hammock.

WHAT! You are purrfectly proportioned NO ONE would call you that "Z" word

Deb Barnes said...

What a clever spot to put a hammick... we must simply plot to get one at our house...
