  15. You know what? One time we were watching MI-5 (I think it's called Spooks in the UK where it's made), and in one scene some spies were breaking into a house when at a particularly tense moment, a kitty jumped out at them! One guy said, "Oh, it's just a moggy." The Human thought that was about the cutest word she'd ever heard! She loves your word today.

    Also, excellent balance beaming. Another Olympic skill!

  18. Love the picture, Austin! I'm going to have to remember this word for Nate. It seems there are many things that Clancy does that transmogrify him haha.

    Love the new layout, Austin looks great with glasses! :)

    Love the balancing act!!

  21. Austin, you daredevil you!

    We STILL giggle when you say "wheely bins!" hehe!

    By the way, I can be transmogrified VERY easily. Just ask the UPS man. ; )

    xo, Katie

  22. Hehee! My humans transmogrify me fairly often....but I try to be tolerant. After all they are trying to cater to my every whim, so I give them the benefit of the doubt. LOL
    Love,

  23. Great word Austin. We are so glad to know what it means. We don't think we get transmogrified. But great word. We are just going to be so smart when we get done with these big words.

  27. I must say that both Mama and Mimi (meow, everybody) love watching that handsome devil Austin.... and me, well I'm a wordaphile (I know there's better word than that, but I'm too tired to look it up), so I give you thumbs up on today's word, as well!!!

    YAAY!!!

  28. Yo Austin! You still on that fence? Jump down and let's go have a tall cool one!

  29. Hey Austin. How's it going?
    That is a great photo. A little cropping and I see a calendar and big bucks in your future. Seriously! That's a money maker!

    Nice whiskers, too.

  31. Austin, you are such a catwalker!!...just like all those models who strut their stuff on the cat walks of fashion shows...yu can show them all a thing or two...and I only get mildly angrified (VBP) when it is nail trim day...and mostly it is because I am scared...purrrs

  33. hey Austin, I'm thinking that transmogrify and that other even longer one are lovely words but all my praises are for you. How easy you're making that very dangerous walk along the handrail between the wheelie bins (put in especially for Katie & Glogirly, who giggle everytime they see those two words)look....what a beautiful tail you have (love it's little kink)and the view beyond is just gorgeous.

  34. That really is a wonderful picture. Just grand. LOVE it!

  35. Crossing a cat? Sounds like the first part of a joke: "What do you get when you cross a cat with..."?
