Back Away ... Slowly, Dood.

We continue Monday's saga:

Maxwell: ... she's behind me isn't she?

Faraday: Hey Maxie, if you don't make it through this, can I have your lounger?
Maxwell: (releases mousie like it was a hot potato)

Allie: Were you playing with my mouse, Maxie?
After expressly being told not to?

Maxwell: Uhh-h-h ....
Allie: How many times do I have to say it?


Allie: (primly) I think that's a very reasonable request. Don't you?

You won't catch us arguing with you, girly. No sirree!

'Toon Tuesdays: Punny But No

Poor Jerry. That must have stung ... #yeswewentthere

Toon Tuesdays feature animal (and sometimes human) humor created by the peeps over at Shoebox Greetings (Hallmark approved. Sorta.) - where our mom works, too!

She'll never know. Right?

We continue Friday's saga:

Maxwell: Allie's sure taking her sweet time with that nap. And this mousie's just sitting here, all lonely and bored.

Really, when you think about it that way, I'd be doing mister mousie a service by playing with him.

And I'll bet I could sneak in a good solid hour or so of mousie play, and she'd never know ....
*reaches out to nip at mousie wire*

Faraday (from under table): I wouldn't do that if I were you, Maxie.
Maxwell: Uhh, why not?

Faraday: In fact, I'd step away from that mousie real quick, I would.
Maxwell: *gulp*

Hey dood, is that what a "deer in the headlights" looks like?

Whose mousie, again?

Maxwell: Cool, Allie. A mousie. 
Allie: That's my mousie, Maxie. And once I'm done with my nap, I intend to play with it.

So paws off--- *yawwwnnn* -- 'k?

Allie: Really, I'd hate to have to hurt you over a mousie infraction.
Or have you forgotten the lounger incident from last week so soon?

Maxwell: (casually stretches paw out and snags mouse while giving leg a nonchalant lick)
Um, yeah, sure Allie. Whatever.

Allie: I saw that, Maxie. I think I'll just nap with my mousie, if you don't mind.
(hugs mousie chastely to her breast)

Allie: ... and maybe I'd better sleep with one eye open.

... or maybe both eyes ....

That's probably a good idea, girlie.

Thursday's Purrs: Rose

"Hi! My name is Rose.
Due to very unfortunate events, this is my second time at KC Pet Project. No, it’s not my fault. The first time, it was because my human passed away.

I was adopted by another wonderful human and she says I’m the sweetest, most cuddly cat she’s ever met. She wished with all her heart that she could keep me, but she was moving away and was afraid the stress of the move would be too much for me.

I admit, I do start off as a very shy kitty, but with time, love, and effort…I will be your best friend, honest."

"I am very scared of the shelter, so I need your help.

I prefer quieter households. My mom isn’t sure if I get along with other cats, but I can tell you right now that dogs aren’t my favorite.

Oh, and I do have one requirement: I MUST be able to sleep with you. You see, I'm a real cuddler. Feet and bellies are my favorite!

I love to play, too. Jingly balls are my fave, but wand toys are okay, too. I eat dry food, but I absolutely adore wet food. YUM!"

"Let's see.... what else can I tell you about myself?  Oh! I’m real a lady.
In fact, always cross my legs when I sit.

I know I’m scared and quiet right now, but if you take me home, you won’t regret it.
Won't you come meet me?

Shy purrs,

Rose is available at the Main Campus of KC Pet Project. Come meet her today!

(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'.
