Sunday Selfie: You Rang?

Now look, you called me and I walked all the way over here, which I didn't *have* to do, to see what it was you wanted.

And as far as I can tell, it was a ploy to take a picture. Even worse, I saw you had my favorite brush in your hand (which, strictly speaking is the only reason I came), but there were no brushies on offer. Only the clicky machine. There was no treat. You ordered me to help take a Selfie. Yeah right. Pull out the Temptations and then maybe we'll talk about it.

You know, if you fake me out like that often enough, I just won't come anymore when you call. Yes, yes, I know: I rarely do now. But how about Never? Does Never work for you?

Our humans trick us to take our photos, too, Spitty. The nerve!

We can’t believe she tricked you like that, Spitty. She owes you some brushies.

Megan said...

Oh no, Spitty. That's not the way it's supposed to work at all - Not. One. Bit.

First, you're to be offered treats or brushies. Then, when you've made your choice, she's to deliver, and only after that can she ask you very politely if you wouldn't mind standing still for just a moment and looking winsome while she helps you take a selfie.

Them's the rules. Insist that she play by 'em.

Hi Spitty, sounds like a union issue to me fair pay for a fair days work. OK so a days work for us is maybe a few minutes in the human frame, but thats the contract, MOL
Toodle pips and excellent selfie none the less, which shows what a pro you are....

Wait, NO reward? I'd say no photo! That's not right.

Spitty I am happy to see you still run the household. And with an iron clad paw! Tell her. Otherwise she will never stop. And her assumption that you are easily fooled makes even me want to unsheathe my claws and show her that I am an able Viceroy!

Brian said...

That sure seems to happy a lot around here too Spitty!

Hey Mr Spitty!
I want you to know that I, Marvelous, have been reading your posts in my email. THAT does not show up in your stats! And because I read you in my email on my tablet and my human finds commenting on the tablet difficult, we have not been telling you what an inspiration you are for me.
Queen Penelope tells me I should aspire to be JUST LIKE YOU! and I, Marvelous am trying.
Now excuse me, I must go harass that Black--Mr Spitty wanna be (Ninja) who has just moved in with me and Mom (so has his human, but I don't care about that)

Oh my Ceiling Cat, look at that displeased royal face! That was quite the low trick.

Kitties Blue said...

Spitty, you are so handsome in this photo. I, for one, am happy you came when called, but you did deserve some brushing or treats or both. I would understand if you ignored the summons in the future. I am so happy you enjoyed my Caturday Art. Sending lots of purrs and kisses 💋 Misty May

Yee-OW-SA! Never? That sounds so . . . definite!

Little Miss Titch said...

Gosh No payment for working?That's outrageous!!!!xx Speedy

Pam and Teddy said...

I am SURE you have made your point Spitty - surely she doesn't think you will fall for this ploy or any ploy again! It's an insult....pure and simple.

Hugs, Teddy

I hope you got brushed and treated.

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

That is the worst. Showing you the brush and then no coming through? That's worse than rattling a bag of treats and then no treats.

M Dawson said...

Oh dear. ALL THAT WAY and no treats, no brush, NOTHING?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Charliepuss said...

You tell her Spitty! She of little respect deserves some lip from you!

That was a sneaky trick she pulled on you.
