oh my, fun days ahead! our youngest is 14 and wheelchair bound, all our house-proofing is for the pets! we got middle aged cats so did not have to survive kittens, but our in-laws are trying to survive a four month old kitten. it has been quite a adventure by all accounts!

I love the look on Perro's face! It's like he is accusing you of stealing all of his nice warm laundry :-)
She likes to attack my feet through the holes in the basket.

Your pics from yesterday are great. I love the one of Perro on his back. Is he a Bengal...or just a beautifully spotted tabby?
Tabby of questionable heritage

That's one epic scratching post, Methos!

I did another photo shoot with Their Feline Highnesses over the weekend:

Is the video itself around, or just the gif? I would like a large version.

Funny no matter what. My cats know what that "thing" does and would never get that close.

Re: Feline Follies

Yes, there is a YouTube video. It plays a little longer maybe 15 20 seconds. You see more of the "set-up" as the kittens crawl upon the upright. Then, just at the edge of the frame, you witness the movement of a cord, implying a human purposely plugs in the machine to startle /tease the fluff-balls. (The first time I saw it, I wondered if one of the kittens somehow tripped the power switch, but given the camrera is perfectly aimed at the vacuum and the glimpsed activity at the edge of the screen, it was planned.)

Screamingly hilarious regardless of the circumstances!

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Feline Follies

That's great Davros!

Hubby and I always joke that it is a good thing that our cat doesn't have thumbs. He loves pens, and would watch me for ages while I was working with pen and paper while studying. If I left the table he would try to "work" the pen. A few times he did manage to mark on my papers.

We always thought he was trying to write his plans for world domination...but maybe he was simply trying to organize a group of cats for a milk run!

Either way...it is good that he doesn't have thumbs!
