Look, Look! It's an Award!

I want to say a big Thank You to Travis at Lone Star Cats for this shiny new Shine On award.

After 4+ years of blogging, I'm not sure there is even one fact, let alone seven, that you don't already know, my Fine Feline Readers, but I will do my best!

a. Sometimes I like to try new flavors of stinky goodness, but as soon as the Human buys a bunch (see 7/19), I decide the old stand-bys are the best after all.
 Lately, I have softened the Human up by snuggling a little bit when she goes to bed, and actually sleeping nearby for much of the night, but then I change my mind and sleep in my tiny tent or on the bookshelves. It makes her soooooooo frusterated!
x.  meow like a little girl kitten.
&.  I am embarrassed that I am still a Tenderpaw in Cat Scouts.
U.  I've been thinking about getting the Furrari out. It's been a l-o-n-g time.
1. I totally stole this numbering system from the Lounge Kitties.
p.  I'm working on memorizing a soliloquy from Hamlet. I'll let you know how it goes.

My Human is far too lazy and inept to help me figure out 15 kitties who haven't received this award yet....but we would love to read 7 facts about you, so please help yourself! And thanks again, Lone Star Cats!

♪ If everybody had an ocean
Across the U. S. A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californi-a ♫

The Human and her friend went for a nice little walkies Sunday afternoon. Weren't they surprised to see me on my board, catching a wave or five in the frigid waters of the Pacific! While those others wear wetsuits, I eschew such silly Human accessories and let my furs do the job.

Surveying the Kingdom

Last night, I took advantage of the Human's absence to teleport downtown and take a gander at my Kingdom around Union Square, where apparently Halle, Calle and Sukki have been doing a fine job as Viceroys.

There was a lot going on, all right, but it all seemed orderly enough, and I was delighted to see the new street signs.

Excellently done, Viceroys. Your King is well-pleased.

Shopping Trip

So the Human went shopping Friday afternoon, and I don't know whether to be flattered or offended at the contents of this PetSmart bag.

"Picky Cat"? Phhft. Discerning feline gourmet, I should think!

On the other hand, I don't hoover my food down like some Little Piggy Boy.

And do you see the Ambrosial Jars peeping out at right? Now there's the food for a "Picky Cat"!

True (and Humiliating) Confessions

Well, Kitties, it's time for me to pay up. Foolishly, I was suckered into making a wager on the World Cup final with that sly & wily Punapippuri, King Kitty Cat of Finland (N).
The stakes were these: the Loser (i.e., ME) was to post an embarrassing secret.

Well, Furiends, I have struggled mightily for Lo, these many years to hide this humiliating reality: When I am warm, and sleepy, and comfortables, and my heady is being scritched just so, I drool. I can't help myself, okay?

Well, King P? Am I all paid up now?

A Comedy of Errors

Today, Kitties, I bring you a story about how the Human scared me half to death yesterday. There's a tiny semi-circular table (see photo) in our living room, and when The Human came home yesterday afternoon, she could see my tailio and paw protruding from beneath it. Obviously, this was because I was comfortably curled up under there, deeply immersed in slumberland. 

Except . . . she had never before seen me snooze under this particular piece of furniture, and in fact had no idea I could even squeeze myself into that little space. Well, Kitties, she freaked out and thought maybe I was dead or something! WTF??? I was S-L-E-E-P-I-N-G, Lady--emphasis on the was.

So, because she was all freaked out, she came straight at me at an almost-run, frantically calling "Spitty! Spitty! What are you doing???", thus waking me instantly and sending me into Full Panic mode myself, as I scrabbled like some crazed Ninja Cat to get out from under that little table and far away from her. 

It was like a damn Marx Brothers movie in here for a few minutes. Anyway, I ended up glaring at her from across the room, wishing I could say, "Have you lost your f'ing MIND, Human?" We is all calmed down now, though, and I have since been napping peaceably on my kitty tower. 

It was a tight fit down under that table, but I liked it. It was SNUG. Now, I don't know if I will ever feel comfy under there again.

Morning Routine, Summer Division

Now, during the school year, I am lucky if I get so much as a Good morning, Spitty from the Human. In the summertime, however, we sometimes enjoy a virtual stroll through Facebook and some kitty blogs over a cup of coffee and a soup├žon of kibble.
Can you guess whose Facebook post we are admiring this morning?
