Three cats. Three silly, silly cats. Do they deserve to be humiliated over the tubes of the internets?


This is hardly the sleep of the righteous. Ellie tried to attack a squirrel through the sliding glass door just this morning. And then she jumped up on the counter and tried to lick the butter.

If Nicholson doesn't want a stupid bow tied around her neck (which Ellie will later attack), she really shouldn't block a person's access to the Sunday morning papers.

It isn't polite to stick your tongue out at the camera, Claudius. Just be glad I didn't post the shot of you sniffing Ellie's tail-less you-know-what.

Bookish content should return to this blog tomorrow. We're going to see Doctor Faustus tonight--let's see if my opinion of the play improves after seeing it performed.

Don't forget to visit the Ark on Friday; The Pets Garden on Saturday for Weekend Cat Blogging and The Scratching Post on Sunday for the Carnival of the Cats.


  1. Oh, that's just what I needed! Thanks for the smile!

    And I see Nicholson's bow even matches her eyes :)

  3. Great pictures! I'm finding all kinds of fun sites through the Once Upon a Time challenge. Your cats are adorable!

  4. The cats say thank you! And Nicholson would like everyone to know her eyes are really Siamese blue. Wish I could get a decent picture of them, but I cannot.

  5. Long time reader, first time poster. Ellie looks adorable but the other two look possessed. "Look deep into my eyes. You're getting sleepy. Sleeeeepppyyyy."

    Anyway, just saying hi, as I should have so long ago.

  6. Hi Petunia. I'm glad you said hi because now I know about your blog. :)

    I tell Ellie she is our only normal cat. Claudius is a paranoid psychotic and Nicholson has some kind of personality disorder.

  7. Uh oh! Nicholson does not look very happy about the bow on her neck. I think she would have preferred a feather boa.

  8. Cute photos! I don't think Nicholson likes having the bow around her neck, however.

  9. Hahahaha! You have a nice fur fambly!

  10. Sounds like you have your hands full with your furry owners! I agree, Nicholson didn't look too happy...

    Those are way too cute--especially the top one!

  12. Wonderful, all of the pics.
    But especially the first one.
    I feel like this, EVERY DAY, during the first hours of work!


A bang, not a whimper

  Two months into L.'s retirement, and I'm finished with the stockpiling of books. No more book purchases! Or at least, no purcha...
