Thursday's Purrs: Garfield

"Excuse me. Do look like a cartoon to you? No? I didn't think so."


"Guess I can't help it that the cartoonist guy decided he needed a handsome mancat to model his 'toon after. Just one thing:  how did he know how handsome I'd be, years before I was born?

I mean, I'm only a 2 year old guy and all.  It's a puzzle, I tell ya.
Maybe I'll be able to figure it out after a snack. I hear it's more difficult to think on an empty stomach."


"Got any treats on you?  I'd gladly take one or two off your hands. Hey, I'll bet you have even more at home! What if I head on over there with you and we make it a date?

I promise I'll be very diligent managing the rodent population. As you can see from my resume photo, below, I'm quite adept at it."


 "What do you say? Think we should seal the deal over a bowl of cream?

Dutifully yours,
Garfield"

Garfield is waiting for you. Come meet him today, at the Main Campus of Kansas City Pet Project.

Not a Fan of Fall. Not. At. All.

Did we call it, or did we call it?
Note the accusing glare .... and the offending brown leaves.

It's October 20. How do you plan to observe it?

So not fair. Or is it?

Maxwell: *sigh* He's at it again.
Taunting me, throwing his good fortune right in my face.


Is it really fair that he gets to go out in the harness and I'm stuck inside on my lounger?


Faraday: Well, if you'd let other kitties have some time on that lounger Maxie, maybe I'd feel your pain.  (thoughtful pause)  Or not.

Maxwell: ... don't look. Just don't look .... don't look .... Is he gone yet? Don't look ....


Faraday: Seriouslies, Maxie, you channel Houdini every time Mommy puts you in a harness.
It's not my fault I'm a perfect angel when it comes to walkies.


Maxwell: Angel? Did I hear that right? 
He said angel?
 
Uhh, I think I might be feeling a bit little sick ....

Poor Maxie.

Goodbye, Green. I'll miss you!

This August and September were some of the wettest ones on record for us, and they resulted in lush greenery.


Something tells me Allie's going to miss them ...


I could be wrong.


Nah.


I predict a period of mourning at the first freeze.

Poor girlie.
