Introducing Austin Mini-Me!

Austin here!

At last the time has come. I would like to introduce you to …….. Mini-Me!

But it seems that already the young whippersnapper is trying to stage a coup!!!

  

This is outrageous! You can hardly tell the difference ;)
It's called ruling by stealth!
Here is the culprit


I am told he is the spitting image! Even to the extra long sock on the off-side rear leg!

The Staff keeps laughing to herself! It's a bit unnerving!!!

And there's more…….



A mousie and a fish in a bowl :) I am warming to them!! 

video

NB from The Staff. I took the above video by using the new Takes App. It has a novel way of taking images and making videos.  If it doesn't work, then here are some stills …...



Austin is fascinated by the little bell on the mousie. He doesn't know what to make of it!!!

A BIG BIG thank you to Lynne of Dip Dip and the Bridge for volunteering to make a mini-me for the auction for Benny.  Despite Austin's initial doubts and fears, we absolutely love him and the little toys :)))) BTW Lynne is an excellent artist as well as a crocheter!

PS Thank you very much for all the positive comments from Austin's Mousebreath interview. If you haven't read it yet, you must! It is very good especially if you suffer from insomnia ;)



minimal, mini-mal - could be a very small animal or possibly a tiny shopping centre. I need to do a bit more research

  2. Your Mini Me is so cute! It looks just like you and I had a job to tell you apart. I had to laugh (sorry) when you made the bell dingle and it made you jump.

  3. We just love you and your mini-me Austin - that first picture is brilliant!
    Enjoyed the video too, you showed that mouse who is boss.
    Thank you again for your generous bid, it was Mum's pleasure to create a likeness of your glorious self.

  5. Goodness that is such a great Mini Me Auxgtin. It really does look just like you. What fun. Love the video. We would like to get a mini me for a good friend of ours. Take care.

  6. Mini Me ... er, you is adorable. But a bit cheeky trying to already take over your word of the day. :)

  7. Oh, re your word of the day. Definitely a tiny shopping center. :)

  8. Oh my gosh! The resemblance is uncanny! Love the video of you gingerly touching the mousie's tail and then taking obvious delight in hearing its bell. Lynne is so very talented. All the little toys are so clever.

  9. That mini-you looks just like you, Austin. Though we much prefer the real you. :)

  10. Mini You looks just like you but I told you he'd be nothing but trouble. He's already staging a coup just like HHGutt did. That video was a hoot. TW loves when a cat is hesitant to touch something new and sticks the paw out tentatively. HAH! Enjoy your new toys.

  19. Austin that mini-you is incredible....it really looks 'zactly like you - so much it's a bit scary! Have you given it a big smacky paw just to make sure it doesn't meow or hiss at you??? The toys are quite cool too. How lucky you are to have them! I gave you another award on my blog today - as if you needed MORE!!! :D :D :D

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  30. That's too cute but Austin is not fooled for a second by his doppelganger. He wisely goes after mousie instead!

  43. Your Mini-you is just soooo cute , Austin :)

  44. Ahh a "doppelganger", eh? Well, at least he won't eat your food. (PS - Teach THAT word to your Staff! MOL)

    I loved the interview & it's so good of you to help the Staff w/her vocab. You can never express yourself too clearly, can you? Especially when asking for important things like noms ...

    PURRZ!
