You Be the Judge

A. Imagine if you will a winsome and endearing kitty seeking only a spot of relaxation and warmth in his day:

B. and a group of Young Lady yoofs at the Human's school braving the rain to have their say:

A or B? or B or A? Who's the Fairest of them all?

The WatchCat

I had to argue long and hard to convince the Human that this photo was not too unseemly for use on my very own blog.

After all, I consider it my sworn duty to stand guard over the Human when she is, um, busy in the Human Litterbox Room.

She felt that perhaps this topic might be somewhat undignified, but I told her there was absolutely nothing undignified in a fine ManCat ensuring the comfort and safety of his Human in her time of need.

Right? Right.

Sunday Selfie: Come to Papa, Little Birdie

There, that's good.You know I wouldn't hurt you.


'Cause I'll want to play again soon, right?

There, there, no need to scream.

The Human Likes to Sit Here

Sometimes, that's  allowed
But not tonight.

Tonight, I was here first.

And can't you see how thrilled I am?
Why, I have even opened one eye.

Sunny Sunday Selfie

There were sunpuddles today so I wasn't as mad as I might have been that the Human spent the day at school. This was the first day of their "ack-reddit-tay-shun" visit. Whatever that means. She says it'll all be over Wednesday. But I dunno. I don't find her the most honest person.

Since some of you inquired about what a "soft story" is (and believe me when I say we didn't used to know either), herewith is Wikipedia's explanation:
A soft story building is a multi-story building in which one or more floors have windows, wide doors, large unobstructed commercial spaces, or other openings in places where a shear wall would normally be required for stability as a matter of earthquake engineering design. A typical soft story building is an apartment building of three or more stories located over a ground level with large openings, such as a parking garage.
This was the picture that accompanied the little article. Maybe we'll stop complaining about the retrofit now:

Once Upon a Seismic Upgrade

The last time the Human parked in her garage was July 31, 2017. 
On that day, Anthony Scarramucci, The Mooch, spent his last day at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Prince Harry was still footloose and fancy free, & Elon Musk's Tesla was still on Terra Firma.
In all its infinite wisdom, the city of San Francisco issued a decree that all residential buildings with 6 units or more and a "soft story" must be retrofitted. Worst case, three months they said.
                              Tick    Tick    Tick    Tick.
So, as we embark on our eighth month of Honda displacement, yesterday appeared this Thing just outside our front door, looming like the portal to a distant and dangerous universe. Or maybe just a particularly ominous port-a-potty covering.

How will it all end? we ask. But no one replies.

Obligatory picture of The Kitty, so you can tell how much he's fretting about the Human's parking difficulties:
