Crazy Train

The Mom: Awww, a cardboard box train. Okay kitties, pose for the camera ....


Allie: *perk* Did you say "strike a pose"?
Maxwell: No. No, she did NOT.


Allie: Is this my best side?


No, wait -- I think this would be better ....
Maxwell: *heavy sigh*


Allie: I'd like an 8x10 glossy, please. For my agent. 
And a few reprints, you know, for my fans. 

Just a hundred or so, Mother. 
No need to tax the budget or anything.


Maxwell: I did not just see this.
Tell me I did not just see this.


Sorry, dood. Guess it's a bit late to tell you to hide your eyes?

Allie's Fashion Faux Paws


Allie: The Fashionable Feline uses the light to its best effect.
And everyone knows the Golden Hour provides the best lighting. Am I right, ladies?


... of course, the Golden Hour is best observed outside, Mother.



*cue pointed -- and longsuffering -- look*

Snake=1; Maxwell=0

When last we left our tale, Faraday had been rudely interrupted mid-strike by Maxwell, confident his snake-wrangling prowess was equally on point. 

We join our story in progress ....


Faraday: Seriouslies, Maxie. It takes skillz to defeat a vishus snake. I'm not so sure you're up to --
Maxwell: Nonsense, boy.


Maxwell: All it takes is a bit of detailed inspection, the application of a bit of fluid dynamics, the concept of torque as applied to a ---


Hey! Wait --!


I wasn't done measuring the --- aaack!


I, uh --- think I'm done now.


Dood. You look like Braveheart, wearing that snake like a sash and stuffs.

Cat v. Snake: Mano a -- uhh, Cat-o

The Great White Housepanther squares off against his opponent, staring death fearlessly in the face.


Sneak attack! But the Claws are ready.


He pulls the vicious creature into a stranglehold....


Prepares to clamp down on its venomous tail ...


...with steely jaws.


Maxwell: Dood. You're narrating your own snake battle? Really?
Faraday: *scoffing noise* As if you could do better.


Oh, the gauntlet's been thrown now.
Stay tuned!

December's Chill

Allie: Is it still cold out there, Maxie?


Maxwell 
(glances outside): Ah- yup. Looks like it. Even the squirrels are shivering.


Allie: *sigh* this is going to be a long winter.



Happy December! 
Is it cold where you live?

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday



Wow, Fall flew past us so quickly! Seems just yesterday the leaves were barely turning.
And Faraday was enjoying window whiffs. And now ... it's almost December!

A Little Post-Turkey Workout

Faraday: Seriouslies, Allie?
A nap? Right in the middle of the kitchen floor?


Allie: Well I was napping, Brat. Until you rudely awakened me.


Allie: And why not the kitchen floor? It's conveniently located next to my food bowl.


Faraday: Mommy sez you need more exercise an' less foods, Allie.
Being the generous kitty I am, I'll let you have the next mousie turn while I nom your treats, 'k?


Allie: Really, Mother? We're really doing this?
*sigh* Okay, fine.


*half-hearted swipe* Oops.


Gaaargh ....


 ... a little closer, please?


Allie: ... I think I'll just wait for the next swing ....

Faraday: Look, Maxie, she's so out of shape the mousie's totally dominating her.
Allie: Dominating me? DOMINATING me?


Allie: Step away from the food bowl, Brat, and watch how a Huntress dominates.

(cue claws of doom™)


Allie: A little tough. Pass the pepper, please?

As the saying goes ... or not.

Faraday: Hey Allie, why're you smiling an' stuffs?
You usually growl when I sit next to you.
Allie: Because, Brat. "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar."


Faraday: Well duh. Honey's super sticky an' stuffs.
Allie: *sigh* What I meant was "if you dream it, you can achieve it."

Faraday: Seriouslies, Allie. You can't achieve anything while you're dreaming. You only dream when you're asleeps. And everyone knows that you can't achieve anything but a nap when you sleep.


Allie: *baleful look*
Look, Brat. I'm just trying to convince Mother to let me OUTSIDE by being well-behaved.

Faraday: Pffft. Well, why'nt you just say so, huh?
Allie: *heavy sigh*
