belledame222 said...

omg, you should've seen him chattering at the birds this morning *dies is ded*

Caren said...

Sooooo cute!!!! Can I take 'im home?

Daisy said...

Looks like one of mine! Adorable.

As for the "chattering" at the birds, my daughter used to shine a flashlight at her ceiling in the dark, to make her kitty do the "chattering" sound, which is just so cute.

Cats are the Ultimate Supervisor. You are wise to keep one handy.

belledame222 said...

Why do they do that chattering, anyway? Is it to, like, imitate the birds? Is it frustration? Is it just the equivalent of drooling YUM YUM?

Rootietoot said...

They're just talking. Have you ever wished you could do that scary yowl/growl thing they do when they're threatened or pissed? I mean, do it without the police showing up...

"ohhhhh, my dog, ohhhh long johnson..."

...actually, no, not really.

the CLAWS would be cool, though.

and, i wish i could purr. i ask WB if he'll teach me to purr, but he never does.

I love how proprietorial he looks in that box in the last picture.

One thing I love about cats is the way they seem to be going "Bwaha, I'm going to rule the world some day, the World shall hear from me again, I will be Supreme Leader, Bring me my pearls in vinegar o mere mortals, I... oh look, a bit of dangling tape! Wheeee! *Swipe!*"

that is one cute cat

in Dilbert, the evil human resources head is a cat ("Catbert"); Scott Adams said it was the playful sadism that made it feel perfect.

"Can I get my budget approved?"

"No. Now hold still while I bat your head around."

stripper said...

Aww. Please post more pictures of your cat. So cute!

Rootietoot said...

Oh I'd forgotten about the talking cat video. Junior (may he rest in peace) never meowed. He would say "boing".

What is it about having a cat mess with your stuff that's so endearing? Is it their helplessness due to lack of opposable thumbs?

belledame222 said...

Hm, maybe, never thought of that. although I know people think raccoons and baby monkeys are cute, too.

I think it's more how absolutely engrossed in it they are. "What's THAT? What's THAT??"

also, mine likes to "help" by jumping onto the bed while I'm trying to make it; i'll make the bed right over him, which i swear is exactly what he's waiting for. then i go, there's a LUMP in the bed! a LUMP, a LUMP! o NO! better smoooooooth it out

and the lump goes,

mrrrmrrrmrrmrrrmrrrmrrr

kitties are just delightful, really.

stripper: thank you! you can actually find a few more pics if you click the Wee Beastie tag, here.

"boing??"

Joan Kelly said...

I am an admitted crazy cat lady so there's no such thing as a cat I don't like the look of, but...the cats I've known who have your cat's coloring have all been so fucking sweet natured and silly in personality, to exactly match their faces. *sigh* I never get tired of a here's-pics-of-my-cat thread! :)

My favorite kitty ever (who's passed away now) used to do this. It was so fucking adorable. She could hear me shuffling sheets from the other end of the house, too, and she'd come racing in and jump right in the middle of the bed and then crank the purring up to 11 as I buried her in covers.

In another overlap story, I am sitting in the exact same chair as pictured in your post. After a year in it, my insufficiently padded ass is urging me to get something else.

belledame222 said...

uh oh. well--i just finally got it to replace the wooden kitchen chair i was using in lieu of the piece o'crap chair that kept falling apart. hopefully it'll last a little while. anyway my ass is pretty well padded.

JustmeKaren said...

I love how cats don't need to read the instructions to put things together, along with their "Of course I meant to do that!"

belledame222 said...

hey, welcome, Karen.

JustmeKaren said...

Thank you! :-)
