RTS* and
Our First Night on the Road: Santa Fe

*Restless Tail Syndrome  I first learned this condition had a name from Sweet Screamoline at William's. Even though I am in the very very deepest of slumbers here, my tailio, she never really sleeps. This is rather an enchanting little film, quite mesmerizing; though some might call it "dull" or even "boring," they would be wrong. Well, you be the judge, Kitties.
*****************************************************************************

Pricilla and I spent the first day of our roadtrip in Santa Fe, where it was a balmy 60 degrees today. We drove up into the mountains a little ways, and I brought out our picnic while we enjoyed the sunset. Ah, it's a good life! Headed for even warmer climes tomorrow!

Spitty, I would say that tail is telling the paparazzi to go away!

Cathy Keisha said...

Did anyone tell you your tailio is short? MOL! That being said I thought I felt something jumping about the blue pillow last time I teleported over.

Spitty, I suffer from RTS too. It's like my tail has a mind of its own. ~Zoey

Catio Tales said...

Hmm, it is hard to imagine you are knocking out the zzz's there. Maybe here we have to stop any RTS because some kitten or another will jump on it.

You and Sherpa must be related.....
Pricilla is one lucky goat. The others will be jealous when they learn she had all of those apples to herself

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Oh Spitty, you look so blue-black and silky in the sun! Greg was just commenting the other day that cat's never really stop moving their tails, MOL, guess you proved it!
You had a heck of a view in Santa Fe!

Bud, I had to distract You-Know-Who from seeing the part after the RTS video, because if she knew you were this close and not stopping in, you'd be able to hear her screaming. But she did enjoy the video very much.

Pee Ess. You seriously never bit on that new mat of yours? I could teach you how.

That film is destined to become a classic, Spitty. It's filled with gorgeous actors, it's got movement, suspense and a wonderfully engrossing plot. My only quibble is that your human's camera work was a little bit wobbly. I know that that can be done deliberately for effect on occasions, but for this film, I thought it detracted from the serenity and mystique of what you were trying of convey. (I know, I know - good staff are hard to find.)

RTS for us too Spittty. Peeps says it looks like a propeller when I am hunting squirrels. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Your tail must be having some good dreams to keep moving like that! That is a lovely view that you are showing Pricilla.

Cats Herd You said...

Tails have minds of their own. No wonder so many of us have RTS!

Mariodacat said...

Are you off on an adventure? That would be super cool.

Katie Isabella said...

I have that too! Did I catch it from you, or you from me? Our tails get entangled you know..when we are.

Pricialla much be having the best of times. Those peaches look yummy. You are such a wonderful host. ❤️

Tails just fly about on their own. We'd like 60 degree weather

I wish I was with you, it is so snowy here.

Eastside Cats said...

LOL! Megan's comment above...hahahaha!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Spitty I have no tail ... just some puffs of fur that look like I do. But nope I have no cartilage at all there.
You and Priscialla have a great time!

Lovely picnic you have there and what a view! Looks like a roadtrip for memory-making that's for sure! As for Restless Tail Syndrome - I too suffer from that.....Mom calls my tail "the amazing levitating tail" - mine will rise and kind of float around aimlessly when I'm asleep - I say I'm dreaming of being a concert maestro.......

Hugs, sammy

Our sister Pia's tail is constantly flicking this way and that, even when she looks like she's napping. She says its her lookout, as in, LOOKOUT, I'm going to POUNCE!

Kitties Blue said...

What a beautiful sunset. You are lucky to have encountered such warm weather. Hope it was a great picnic. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

What a beautiful sunset. That tail is a thing of beauty Spitty :)

Looks purrfect from here in the cold East Coast.
When deep asleep our Einstein gets the tail and feet going with a few mews thrown in fur good measure.
Is that RTLMS?
