Dinnertime Watch-Cat

Allie: See anything yet, Maxie?

Maxwell: *sigh* No ... nothing.

Maxwell: Wait. Is that ...?

Nope. Not them.
They did say they were coming home from work on time today, didn't they?

Not that I'm borrowing trouble or anything ... but my tummy's growling.

Allie: Well, we could always open the cabinet and rip into the bonito flakes.
And blame it on Faraday when they come in.

Maxwell: That's, uh, kind of devious, Allie.

Allie: Yes, but completely in character for him, thus a workable ruse.
(Hmm. Who knew I'd actually pick up a few pointers from the Brat? Is that Hell I hear freezing over?)

Thursday's Purrs: Blossom

We first introduced you to Blossom last November. This marmalade girl is still looking for her forever family. Won't you please share?


"Hullo folks, I'm Blossom, the rare orange girlcat! Did you know most orange moggies are of the male persuasion?

Although some humans may call me a bit ornery, I'm really a very sweet and fun-loving girl -- with a healthy side of catitude.

My loves are playing, sun bathing and long afternoon naps. What are yours?
I love to be with people, and let me tell you, those head and neck scritches totally rock!"

"My dislikes are being picked up and taking my medicine, (well, duh, what kitty would like that, I ask you?). I've been told I need the stuff twice a day, though, for a delicate tummy.

"I've been called a 'chatty cathy' (whatver THAT is). I am pretty talkative and would love to chat you up if you're willing to chat.

I'm an Independent Girlcat of Means, and I take my role of House Investigator very seriously.
When not working, I do love a good round of Red Dot.

Being a Proper Ladycat and all, I'm a diligent  kitty post scratcher -- and I never scratch the furniture."

"I get along well with dogs, but prefer to be the only cat of the house.

In exchange for your love, I promise cuddle up with you at night and be a loyal companion. I desperately want a home of my own and a human who adores me and accepts me for who I am. (Which if you ask my foster parents, is a pretty darn great!)

Won't you come meet me and see how we get along? I'll bet we'd get on famously!

Orange girlcat purrs,

Blossom's available at the Main Campus of KC Pet Project. Come meet her today!

Cat Conversations, Part 2

Allie: Don't expect to chat me up at the screen door, Brat.
I'm not as patient as Maxwell.

Faraday: You're not the Boss of me, Allie.

(long pause)

Allie: (sniffs, eyes wide) 

FARADAY. Did you just ... ?!

Faraday: (obstinate look)

Cat Conversations

Faraday: Nice day out, Maxie.
Maxwell: Yup.

Faraday: Not too hot, either.
Maxwell: Nope.

Faraday: Great whiffs, too.
Maxwell: Yup.

Faraday: Catnip's lookin' good.
Maxwell: Yup.

Faraday: Izzat a squirrel under that tree, Maxie?
Maxwell: Ahh-yup.

Faraday: Seriouslies, Maxie. What'd you do, use up all your big words on Friday?

Maxwell: (contemplative pause)

Big Word Day PeeMail Dustup

Who knew Big Word Day would cause such friction?
Or maybe Allie just likes stirring the pot a bit ....

Not that Faraday had the first clue what Maxwell was saying ....

Happy Big Word Day! Did we expand your vocabulary a bit?
Writing this post sure did it for us!  ;-)
