Snoopervision Saturday

No, really, I'm awake and watching you, Neighbors. 
Y'all better behave yourselves out there.

Spitty Says: It's UnSpeakAble

The Horror! The Horror!
Kitties: Is there a grade lower than an F?

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

The Desk Inspector

gives you a Failing Grade. He'll be back for a surprise visit soon. 
N.B.:  And your calendar is a day behind.

The Big Event

This is the one straight stretch of the nauseatingly windy (that's long-i windy) road that leads 
to the lovely little town of Mendocino, where yesterday
my Beloved Aunties became genuine, official Married People with fancy rings
and a fancy cake and everything. And afterwards, right across the road . . .
several actual whales (this wasn't really one of them, though) came 
to disport themselves throughout the reception! 
While the newly-married pair were the main attraction,
they didn't mind sharing the stage with their uninvited--
but most welcome--cetacean guests!

Hello, Kitties! The Human is getting ready to abandon me tomorrow to drive up to Mendocino, a pretty little town on the northern California coast. 
It's kind of far for a day trip, especially on a school day, but she is happy to do it as the trip is to attend the wedding of my beloved Aunties who take care of me when the Human 'bandons me for anything more than a day. 
The Aunties have been life partners for more than 20 years, but it is only now that they have been allowed to celebrate their union by getting married. They are happy and excited, the Human is happy and excited, and their family and friends are coming from near and far to witness their vows and make merry afterwards! 
To tell you the truth, I think it would be swell if Onyx, their sweet little girlcat, and Yours Truly could attend also, but it's kind of far and I suppose we might misbehave.
We'll be back Tuesday with a repurrt on the proceedings.

Okay, the brush and the Magic Fishie can stay. But the rest of the clutter needs to disappear, Human--and, No, you can hold the sarcasm: I do not mean me!

Sweet Friend

Prancer Pie, Princess, Precious and, eventually, Princeton 
were some of our first friends when we started my blog 
back in 2010. I am sure Princess was there at the Bridge to welcome 
Prancer Pie with open arms. We will miss you, Prancer Pie, but 
rest easy, Friend: We will all look out for your family till you meet again.

Buttermilk Biscuit Boy

Y'all ready to get busy? 
Now, buttermilk biscuits here we go
SIFT the flour roll the dough
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
Move your butt to the funky beat*

Sir Mix-a-Lot (lest anyone mistakenly think the Human was clever enough 
to come up with such fine, complex verse)

What's Making All That Noise Out There?

Oh, it's Humans. Well, of course it is!
Honestly, you'd think those Seahawks would've
shut their moufs for them, wouldn't you?

Tuckered-Out Tuesday

Why, hello, Kitties! Here I am, recovering 
from my Monday Embraceathon.
The Human has been adequately attentive,
the sun puddles are warm, the noms tasty,
and the company was beyond compare.
I am dreaming the pleasant dreams
of the fulfilled. Hope you all had a fantastic
weekend, too!

♫ ♥ ManCat Monday ♥ ♫

Embrace me
My sweet embraceable you
Embrace me
You, irreplaceable you

Just one look at you
My heart grows tipsy in me
You and you alone
Bring out the gypsy in me

I love all
The many charms about you
Above all
I want my arms around you

Don't be a naughty baby
Come to papa, come to papa do
My sweet embraceable you

A Festival of Fishy Fun

Sometimes, the old toys are the best toys. . . 
especially when the Human sprinkles a little Silvervine 
on the toy's tummy. I had a nice workout 
with Mr. Magic Fishy today, for which I thank
Punapippuri, Tutu, ManxMnews, and even the Human.
Time for my nap now!

Success at Last: Post-Snack, Post-Brushies

Can't you just feel the contentment emanating in waves
from Yours Truly this evening?
You did it, Kitties: You guilted her into coming home early
and catering to my every whim
Ahhhhhhhhh. ThanksSee you tomorrow!

Thursday, January 16, 2014

Yes, My Friends, It Has Come to This:

The Human has become so neglectful, I have to brush myself
Please, can someone help me?

Monday, January 13, 2014


I have whisker holes on this side, too.

Sunday, January 12, 2014

Yes, In Fact, We Do

still have some Christmas décor around.
So what? It's still January, right?

Should I Sue Her for This?

A boy can't always help looking ridiculous 
when he's deep into open-eyed slumberland, 
but it is cruel and unusual punishment 
for his Human to publish such a thing 
on the Innerwebs, don't you think?

That Traitorous Harridan

 Miss Madie Mitten Kitten
Sweet Wally

Oh, I'm cool with 3M & the Walman.  
I mean, it's not their fault
my Human is a disloyal harpy. Is it?

Wednesday, January 8, 2014


Yet again, the Human has let essay-grading go down to the wire. She's older than dirt, and still she has not learned how not to procrastinate. It's an outrage, Kitties, that my blogging needs should suffer because of her irresponsibility.

However, she says we will be back Friday evening or possibly Caturday, with my full report on her many failings. Meanwhile, we are turning off comments on this post because she has at least the good grace to feel guilty about not helping me visit my furiends, and reading charming comments only makes her feel guiltier.

As well she should, Kitties, as well she should.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday:
Tutu Is Too, Too

Tutu makes me think of happy tunes
She's the most fun a kitty could ever imagine! 
Thank you, my sweet girl!

Spitty's Video Trilogy, Part III:
The Tongue-Lovers Special

So the Human just *might* have sprinkled 
a controlled substance on the edge of my pink beddie. 
You think?

P.S. Later in the week, I will have an exciting report on the embarrassment of riches that came my way on this very day! Woo-hoo, I'm a lucky boy, yes I am!

It's a Bird . . . It's a Plane . . . It's a Toy from Finland!

My friend and fellow Royal, Punapippuri KKCofF(N), 
made me this fantastic toy with his very own floofy paws!
Wait--what? Oh, well, maybe if you want to get all tech-ni-cal
about it, it might have been his Äiti who made it.
Pfft. Whatever. It's a Ton of Fun!
 Kiitos, ystävät

Oh My Cod, Kitties: Look at This!

The Unbelievably Talented Human of Ms. Stella (et al.) 
sent me us this fantastic wall hanging! 

Here's a close-up of the individual cartoon panels--
do you see they are ALL House Panthers??

This is the most beautifulest thing anyone has ever made for me, and we cannot thank The Fantastic Ms. Stella and her Human, Stacy Hurt, enough for sending it. 
We it sooooooooo much, and we ♥ you too!

Pink Beddie and Pinky

Can you see Pinky? He's hiding out waaaaay back there. And yes, no doubt you've noticed that I am blissfully asleep once again. So I nap a lot! Like you kitties don't? Pfft. Sometimes it's the very best part of my day, you know? 
I mean, many of you Facebook users probably read of poor Sparkle's being subjected to an attack of kisses (shudder). So really, napping might save us from such indignities, don't you think? And even if our Humans *do* try to sneak in a kissie or six, we might sleep right through it!

Happy New Year, Kitties!

The first day of 2014 was as sunny as all the days of 2013. 
I'd like to put in an order for some winter, please? Thank you, I'll be expecting it soon!
Meanwhile, I do enjoy hanging out in the sun. 

Hope you all had a safe and sane NYE (I was unexpectedly sociable during the Human's gathering), and I wish you an exhilarating year ahead!
