                             The Human and I Disagree

Now, here's the thing, Kitties. Yesterday was Post #299 for 2016. I say, We have 
19 days more to reach our 300-post goal for the year. What's the hurry? There will
be lots and lots of opportunities that don't involve pictures of Me, King Spitty I,
flailing about in a most undignified way on the dining room floor.
But, "Nooooooooo," says the Human. "We need to get #300 in the books 
and then I won't have fret about it or listen to you complain about it
every single day." Besides, she says, I look funny and people and kitties alike
need something to cheer them up in these stressful times, right?
Well, maybe she's right. But I think she just wants a good excuse to skip a lot 
of posting days. And please, don't laugh loud enough for me to hear. 
I do have feelings, you know.

We say wait for THE picture to wrap up the year sometime between Chrissymouse and New Yeerz. And go for 305 before then!

Some Helpful Tips to be Going Along With (from an Avid Fan):
- you need to focus attention on your headlines, Spitty. "The Human and I Disagree" is hardly commentworthy, let alone a headline - it's the standard state of affairs, I would have thought, in your household. Headlines are meant to grab attention. More effort required please.
- now, you know that I'm on your side, 10000%, don't you? So, you've also got to know that when I provide constructive criticism, it is well intentioned - designed to help you continue to improve yourself and your reputation and your blog. So - are you ready? Here's the thing: in complaining about having these particular photographs published, you are, I'm afraid to say, being hypocritical. It wasn't all that many weeks ago that you complained about the fact that the Human had the temerity to post without including a pic of you. And I agreed. So, it's hardly fair or proper that you're now complaining that the Human has included pics of you in today's post.
- you couldn't behave in an undignified way if your life depended on it. You are a King. It follows, by definition, that everything you do is regal - and dignified. You are worrying about the wrong stuff: today's pics are delightful.
- people do need things to cheer them up. And kitties are the things designed for exactly that purpose. Indeed, that's why the internet was invented: so that kitties would have much wider scope for getting themselves 'out there', cheering humans up no matter when in the world they were. Carry on the good work
- where did this entirely arbitrary goal of 300 posts per year come from? There are 365 days in the year and, to be honest, I think you've set the bar very very low if you're aiming for only 300 posts. 365 per year would be reasonable, and 400 a good 'stretch' target for 2017 - surely there's so much you want to share with your readers that trying to squeeze it all into 400 posts per year would be a struggle. Let it out, Spitty.

See ya tomorrow ('cos it's not too late to make a last-minute pitch to achieve 400 posts in 2016, you know).

The trick is to quickly flip back to all fours when that stoopy camera comes out. Even if Snapoline gets a kick out of seeing your belleh.

We are reeling and laughing from Megan's comment. My goodness King Spitty, you can learn a lot there. *runs away VERY fast*

Dood, even flailing about on the floor, you're magnificent. It was worthy of #300. Yep.

It's the season of flailing about, tell your human that!

Katie Isabella said...

Spitty, what's to laugh about. You are merely showing off your athletic prowess. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth ad Calista Jo

Do you and your human ever agree?

I wouldn't laugh at you Spitty. I sent you a little something so check your mail tomorrow or Thursday.

Oh Spitty I don't think you are flailing - I think you are gracefully performing gentle stretches after hours of sitting in your throne. A guy needs a good stretch from time to time. Kings do NOT - I repeat - DO NOT - flail. Just sayin' !

Love, Angel Sammy

Flailing? I thought you were attacking the chair leg for having the temerity to be so close to your royal self.

Spitty, this time we side with your human. You might as well get #300 over with...besides, we love seeing you no matter how you look.

Nothing like reaching your goals for the year. Even better to exceed them.
