Sunday Selfie: The Sweet Sound-Stylings of Spitty

I think you've all suspected for some time that I am no longer the edgy ManCat in fighting trim that once I was, aloof and self-sufficient. The James Bond of the Kitty World. 

No, now I've become an embarrassing old softie with a hint of a paunch. I mean, just listen

Jailhouse Rock

I mean, right now I'm just practicing, but I think 
I'd look good in the outfit, don't you?

                                  I'm Invited to a Rave

Honestly, I don't  know what that is, 
but apparently I can get all blissed out  
on the wicked disco biscuits and what-not. 
The Human says I'm not allowed to go, but
I am welcome to play with this thing.

And Now for Something Completely Different

A few years ago, the Human found this on reddit and because she's pretty stoopy, it intrigued her for a Really. Long. Time. An.Embarrassingly.Long.Time.

Maybe you are smarter? Well, of course you are--you're 
a kitty! And, besides, it's a pretty low bar.

The task is easy: Find the Kitty

                                         I Feel Pretty

Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and bright
And I pity any kitty who isn't me tonight

11-11: Remembering

Lord, bid war’s trumpet cease; 
Fold the whole earth in peace.
--Oliver Wendell Holmes

The Human's Dad served his country in World War II and remained a peace-loving patriot for the rest of his life.

She thinks about him all the time, but especially on a day like today.

If Only, If Only . . .

She weren't so messy!
I'd look fantastic on a neater bed. Sigh.

                         (Almost) Wordless Wednesday

  There's nuffing like a sunpuddle in the cold weather. Thanks for arranging it. 
I hope you can keep them coming on a regular basis. You can, right?

Sunshine Superman

Sunshine came softly through my a-window today
Could've tripped out easy a-but I've a-changed my ways*
*Not really.

                                 I Has the Pom-Poms

The Human says I could be my own cheerleading squad if I could 
somehow detach my pom-poms to use in my dance routine.
She also says I look like an adorable kitten* in this box. For once, I completely agree.

Did You Get Fired Or Something?

Yes, Human, it is nice that you're home with me this morning and 
I've enjoyed our little chat. But I wonder: What are you doing here?

Well, okay, I can see this is not going to be interesting to the Kitty 
so I'll just excuse myself now, all right?

The Heartbreak of Infidelity

This is Jon Schnow, the 15-week-old puppy of one of the Human's colleagues. He came to school with his Dad today. He is a Mini-Schnauzer. He is adorable. He is friendly. And playful. And he doesn't has claws and he doesn't draw blood when he bites. The Human fell in lurve.

And where's the challenge in having him as a pet, I ask you? So boring and predictable. Phffft.

                         Happy Halloween, Kitties!

The Human says this is a pumpkin, but I don't think so. Do you? Well, I thought not. But I wish it would go away and let me nap.

OK, I'm Waiting. Anytime Now, Fog.

I think I scared the Human today, when she found me all sprawled out on the floor like this! 

Hey, it's nearly Halloween, right?  

Time for a little scare.

94° and Counting

What is wrong with this picture?

Cat on a Hot Dining Room Floor . . . 
with a blanket?

But wait . . . it actually feels kind of good. Ahhhh...(n)i-i-i-i-i-ce!

Sunday Selfie: Box. Feather. Spitty.

This has turned out to be one heckuva box, Human. Thanks for not throwing it away.

But honestly, is the price for 10 minutes of playtime yet more photos to prove I don't sleep 24/7?

I mean, I almost do, but that's because you're so old and boring.

                         Caturday Afternoon Naptimes

The Human says I look adorable all a-sleepies like this. 
I really can't say I disagree with her.

                   Is the Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

I say it is 100% full. What more could it possibly need?
A pretty LadyCat? Well, okay. Now you're talking.
I'm waiting.

All Right, Lady

What in Sam Hill are you trying to do to me here?


Hands off now, okay?

                                         This & That

Ahhhhh, yes. Right there, right there is gooooood
Brush, and brush, and brush . . .
Hey! Who said you could stop?

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
In the news:
This is our street, looking up to the hospital two blocks away.
It's a bit hazy today, but not as bad as yesterday. 
They say the winds will kick up over the weekend, 
and that will mean we'll be smokier tomorrow.
The Human says she feels like she's been sucking down Winstons again.
We know we are lucky to just be a tiny bit uncomfortable.
The losses up north are incalculable.

Only a light dusting of ash on the roof of the Human's car today.
(And frankly, it was none too clean to begin with.)

I Don't Always Care Much about Human Woes . . .

. . . but today I am purring very hard for our friends just to the north in the Santa Rosa, Napa and Sonoma areas, where wildfires are burning homes and shops and businesses and hotels and animal habitats, and anything else in their path. Thankfully, the wind has calmed, but the fire is not at all contained yet. The Human thinks that the pretty road and wonderful little area of Calistoga she visited right before school began might not look the same for a long time. Bless all the firefighters and the people trying to help up there.

               Sunday Selfie: All Played Out

So after a couple days of good playtimes, I had a nice nap in the sun. Life is good, eh? 
I really need some new stuff to complain about. This is  . . . unnatural.

Sweet Contentment

It would have been nice if the Human had cleaned 
the schmutz off my eyes before we made this little movie. 
But go ahead and turn up your sound, press play, 
and close your eyes:

I Like to Keep You Company

while you work here at your desk, but I think it's kind of unreasonable to expect me to pay these bills for you.

You don't even give me an allowance!

  The Human Says . . .

I has the Mel Tormé earsicles. For once, I won't disagree with her. Do you know what they called Mel Tormé? I do.

***And the winner is . . . Ducky's Mum in the very first comment! *I* think my ears are like velvet and they look a sort of foggy color here, don't you think? He was one of the Human's favorite jazz singers--here's a good one: When Sunny Gets Blue.

                         Sunday Selfie: My Favorites

So I played with my toys like a maniac for a long time last night and again this morning. 
The Human says she is afraid I might be taking methamfedameens speed or something, 
but I told her I am having a second kittenhood and she seemed to buy it. Heh, heh.

Saturday Snack Time

So, Human, you gonna make me open this myself? I mean, I let you go to your stoopy j-o-b on a Caturday, for Bast's sake.

You owe me.

Alrighty, then. That's more like it. ::nomnomnom::

                           Cat on an Empty Blue Pillow

Hot cat is hot.
Long cat is long.

Long, hot cat seems . . . lonely.

                                       It's a Miracle

Miracle One:  She came home right after school--before 4:00!
Miracle Two: She said she'd play with me!
Miracle Three: She did play with me!
