(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

Sneak peek at our new kitchen window and sill (coat of paint to come!).



And it looks like somekitty's getting in a bit of practice for next week's National Be an Angel Day. Keep at it, dood.
You could use the practice.

Just sayin'.

Never Mess with a Girlcat in Pearls

Remember the epic battle Faraday tattled on while the mom was out of town last week? 
Here is the full tale, unredacted.

Allie: Move over, Maxie. Let someone else have some lounger time.
Maxwell: Yeah, riiight. Think again, Allie. This lounger is TAKEN.


Allie: I said---
Maxwell: And I said it's TAKEN!


WHAP! WHAPPITY! WHAP!


Maxwell: You want a piece of this, Allie?

Well, DO ya?


(moments later...)


Maxwell: All right. All right, FINE.

Just quit it with the CLAWS, Allie!


Looks like Maxie fell for Classic Blunder #3, "never mess with a girlcat in pearls."

Dood, look out for Sicilians and land wars in Asia, too. Just meowin'.

A Little Construction Advice


A few weeks ago, construction began on our house as we had a few windows replaced.
Some kitties wisely decided to retreat from all the loud noise and chaos.

And then there's Maxwell.

Part I: Deconstruction
  
Maxwell: ... and after you remove that one, there's another storm window over here ....
 

Maxwell: Ah, yes. Very good. Very good.


Maxwell: Dood, I think you missed a screw. No, down here, in this corner ....


Maxwell: Yeah, that's the ticket. Now, after you remove that one ....


The crew was entertained by Maxie's "dedication" to the project!

We'll show you the "after" photos soon.

Thursday's Purrs: Hera

"Hullo! I'm Hera. You know, like the Greek goddess of women and of marriage? Except, no offense, but I'm kind of over the whole family thing.

You see, I got thrust into motherhood much earlier than I really wanted. Six kids - and three of them weren't even mine!"


"But honestly, what was a girlcat to do? I was still practically a kitten myself, but those poor little things, they had no one else. So I took them in, along with my own three.

But now they're all off on their own adventures, and me?

Well, I came to KC Pet Project a bit exhausted, to tell the truth. The nice lady who fostered me said I looked utterly worn out. Like a skinny, nervous teenager needing a place I could just crash!"


"Bless her; she gave that to me and more. I now know what it will be like to have a family of my own and let me tell you, it's nice to be able to let go and be taken care of myself, for a change.

"I've discovered head butts and tummy rubs! And ooooooh, I love them!"


"Do you have room in your life for a young, former teenage mom who is now ready to enjoy a long life with her BHFF*?

Come meet me, please?
Purrs and headbutts,
Hera"

*BHFF = Best Human Friend Forever

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

National Lazy Day




Allie: Can you push that feather a little closer, Brat? It's just out of my reach ....
Faraday: Seriouslies, Allie. After you hired Maxie to turn on his own brother?

You could do with a bit more physical activity. Get it yourself.


*cue creepy scary murder music from Psycho*
*Faraday sits paralyzed while his life flashes before his eyes ... *

(okay, well, maybe he's just sitting there...)

Allie: ... FINE.
 Then you can just find some other chair to sit in.
 OUT of my sight.

Faraday: *relieved breath* Works for me. I was just leaving ....


Allie: Hrmpf. The little plebeian obviously is unaware that tomorrow is National Lazy Day.


And what better way to observe than with one's favorite feathers?
*deep inhale* Ahhh yes, these were a lovely vintage.

Faraday: (mutters from safety of living room) ... at least she didn't reference Chianti and fava beans ....

Tomorrow is National Lazy Day!
(how do you plan to observe?)
