Heat and Smoke and Fire, Oh My!

I'd love to get up and play, but . . .

In other news, the Human encountered this on her walk this morning. Given that it is sizzling and smoky, not to mention still freaking September, it seemed a little . . . odd:

Sunday Selfie: The Backslider

No, not me, Sillies! Her! Of course, her
Every day I say, "So Human, do you think we could post today?" And she looks at me guiltily and says , "Maybe, Spitty." 
But then M-T-W-T-F-S went by just like that.
And nuffing is what happened!
Well, here we are again. And we'll see if she can do better this week!

Sunday Selfie: The Cube of Many Windows

Moody stare. Paw placement. Light and shadow. I'm . . . intriguing.

(Non-alliterative) Caturday Fill-Ins

These fun fill-ins come up from the wonderful peeps (and their kitties) of 15and Meowing and the Four-Legged Furballs!

1. If you are looking for obedience, try adopting a poodle.

2. A tiny bowl with half'n'half inside fills me with hope.

3. It’s only a matter of time before she gets a salary decrease.

4. Ladycats are my favorite conversation topic.

I'm thinking of making a run for it.

Yo! LadyCats

I gots lots of curlyfurs and plenty of room.

Tuesday Tailio


Sheesh! Sometimes a ManCat just needs a few moments to himself, you know, to recharge his batteries.

And yet, every stinkin' time she tracks me down.

I don't know how she does it.

My Kingsguard


Even Joffrey Lannister would be envious, don't you think?

*The Human says that in reality these Noble Beasts guard the entrance to Sutro Park, but I think she is just trying to diminish the glamour & importance of my royal position.

Sunday Selfie: Hallway Hijinks

So I imagine you may have wondered what it is I find so alluring about Hallway Times. Well, I can't entirely put my paw on it, but I will say it has Expanded My Horizons, and made me feel quite kittenish

Granted, Yours Truly can't sustain strenuous playtimes for long, but every now and then I do Get My Kitten On, and finally the Human had the camera in the right place at the right time.

Friday Fevvers and Fill-Ins

Our friends at 15 and Meowing Four-Legged Furballs created these intriguing Friday Fill-Ins:

1. I wish I had been alive during the reign of the Pharaohs when we kitties were treated with the respect we so richly deserve!

2. My favorite way to have apples is slathered with butter and covered in shrimp. And honestly, you can just forget the apples.

3. I was sad to find out that Humans can't purr, poor things.

Moff-murder isn’t rocket science.

It's Always Good to Hide . . .

. . . when the 'Pocalypse comes.

This was our living room yesterday morning about 10:30 a.m. It really never got any lighter. Today is better, but still not what the Human and I would call 'normal.'

Scorcher, Day 3

Wake me when it's over.

Sunday Selfie: Frying and Fretting

Oh hello, Kitties and Humans!

We have absented ourselves for a few days, as the weather has turned on us, and you know how we HATES the heat.

Plus, I am an Old Mancat now and do not do well at all in the Hots. I hasten to add that the Human is an Old Lady, and we both have our various ailments to contend with, none of which are improved by temps in the 90s, or Cod forbid, worser even than that. So while we have both been frying, she is the only one who has been fretting, mostly about moi, of course. We have reached that stage of the Human-Kitty relationship when she stares at me to make sure I am still breathing. ::eye roll::

Still, this morning I had quite a bit of food and, even better, drank quite enthusiastically at my water bowl. I had fun during morning Hallway Time. 

Speaking of which, I have been largely successful in the past few days at getting Hallway Time on demand, though I have not yet shaken the Babysitter.

So that's the report from Chez Spittola. We are supposed to have one more day (Monday) of the Really Horrible Hots and then a few days of Warms before we return to our cooling ocean breezes and daily fog that creeps in on little You-Know-Whats!

A Modest Proposal

So Human, I've been thinking. I have come to see our building's hallway, stairs and little lobby as natural extensions of our apartment.

I would like to negotiate a new arrangement. First, a once-a-day excursion seems awfully restrictive. I propose three: One late morning, one mid-afternoon, and one before bedtime.

Also, it's a little humiliating to have you babysitting me out there. Just leave the front door open, and I'll come in when I am good and ready.

Wordless Wednesday:
Can I Help You With Something?

Surely you did not track me down in such a stalkeratti-ish way for no good reason?

I'd love to assist you in solving your problem.
