Feelin' Catty

Cats. They are EVERYWHERE. Or at least it seems so to me in the last 36 hours.

First, it was Tal over at Renovation Therapy. JeanMartha regularly reports on Tal’s exploits which always seem to center – or be right in the center – of whatever she’s doing. We love Tal!

Then there’s Buddy and Finn, the stars of Satan’s Fur Puppets. Buddy seems to forever be hangin’ around his mistress’ keyboard. He and his brother are adorable.

Of course, Gene at DIY Insanity, can give you some great tips on building special places for your constant cat companion(s).

And last night, I nearly choked reading a post of Jayne’s over at The Kelly House. Maybe it’s because a friend of her son’s gave a description of her resident feline with issues, Marie Antoinette, that struck way too close to home for me: "That cat is a demon who wants me dead."

The description reminded me ever so much of our mentally unhinged Toby the Cat. But he’s just so damned cute, isn’t he? If we aren't playing peekabo, during which his eyes get as big as silver dollars, he always seems to have this disdainful scowl pasted on his face.

Here, he's using his brother's loofa toy as a footrest ...

Hmmm ... I wonder what bit of orneriness I can cause today ...
He did, of course, wake me up at 4 a.m. -- after I'd gone back to sleep from the gazillion mile an hour winds that woke me up an hour earlier. (Yeah it's a whopping 10 degrees this morning.)

He's cute, to be sure. Don’t be deceived though. He really IS a little demon.

All cats are nuts. Part of the cuteness (of most of them) is that they choose unique ways to be nuts :-)

We love our little fur people! Mine is a flesh-eating cat, tried to taste my new roomie, an exchange student from Korea. I warned her about his quirkiness.

Gene -- Yeah, I guess they are. Toby truly is the exception rather than the rule. Unlike any other cat we've ever had (and we've had DOZENS), he's the only one who just doesn't want to be held or even petted. Makes me sad.

sewwhat -- Oh, that Al! He is second only to Maria's insane cat in felines I seriously keep my distance from.

Toby & Marie ARE alike! I thought Brian's remark about Marie was so funny that I just had to put it in my post about her. She'd hide under things & jump out to bite Brian's legs when he walked by her. More than once she wouldn't let him leave whatever room he was standing in. Hee hee.

And I about fell off my chair laughing when sewwhat? said "Mine is a flesh-eating cat." LMAO!
