The Giant Budgie Face-Off!

As The Staff played around in PicMonkey with this shot, she and I feel that we fit the criteria to enter into the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by Athena and Marie. Click on the link below to see the other blogs participating.

Breaking News: Pink tongue makes you fuzzy!

Do I seem a bit fuzzy in this pic?
It's the pink tongue which makes that happen!

See! No pink tongue! No fuzzy! :)

Sunday Selfie and poem!

The humans really do their best.
But when it comes to where we rest,
They think that we should lie atop,
And not below and be a mop.

Here she comes, all of a fluster,
Mumbling that I've become a duster.
But I assure that I'm ok
and under here is where I'll stay.

There is a reason that I'm here
And it's not because I'm feeling queer.
Or that I am lacking vigour,
But, in fact, I'm dodging Tigger!

He eats my food and takes my bed
He worms his way into my head.
He's like a parasite, my mate,
He's only here to irritate.

So until that day when he is gone,
Or, heaven forfend, he cottons on!
That I am here below the chair
Waiting for him to disappear...

I shall be very calm and quiet and still,
 And do my best to not be shrill.
But if he sees me down here nestling,
We shall indulge in some all-in-wrestling.

The jury's out on who'll be victor.
Tigger's big, but I am quicker!
The time has come to end this rubbish,
So point the mouse and click on "publish"!

Radiator Cat!

This hilarious creation was achieved by using piZap
Ok, the hilarious bit is an assumption and not based on fact.

What's on the menu today?


The Staff says I'm a bit on the chubby side of slender!
How rude!!!
But maybe I should have plucked the pheasant first! :-)

Shun day Shelfie!

I have gone all retro! This shot was taken on 11th April 2008 at 09:17:34! I had been living at Caer Twr exactly 5 months, 2 weeks, 4 days, 19 hours, 43 minutes and 31:29 seconds.  You can see that I am super slim and sleek (try saying that with a mouth full of tuna!). You will also note that unlike the elephant on the shelf above I am not being used as a bookend! It appears I am being used as a dust trap and paperweight.

If I had known the reason for my incarceration at Caer Twr I would have at the very least negotiated more appropriate terms and conditions! i.e.:

1) Paperweight and dust trap duties will take place between the hours of 12.01 and 12.03 only

2) During the 23 hour 58 minute rest period between 12.03 and 12.01 Whiskas chicken and cheese treats will be freely available

c) During working hours minutes, above mentioned treats will be freely available

iv) No leaky printer ink shall touch my delicate furs at any time

£) If I should choose to sleep on the job computer, The Staff must get up and go and do something else

Sicks) The Staff will not complain when I unintentionally click "Buy Now" in Amazon and fifteen pantechnicons full of the best Colombian nip is delivered to the front door

L) Paperweight services will be withdrawn if the imprint "Court Summons" is accidentally branded on my chest from the Council notice lying on top of the pile of final demands

Ate) I will not collect any dust on my white bits

nein) Or my black bits

dix) Or my whiskers!

terms and conditions - rules made by cat to which the human adheres at all times. 
In exchange the cat will whap, thwack, claw and "put the bitey on" whenever they feel it necessary to keep order and the status quo

Is Austin about to clapperclaw?
Uh Oh! It looks like someone, who shall remain nameless, but probably has two legs and a pea brain, is about to receive some unwanted and painful attention!

Advice given to Pea Brain: "Run like the clappers"!

Advice taken by Pea Brain: She ran like the clappers!


"like the clappers" (Brit.) - very fast

clapperclaw - 1. to claw or scratch with the hands and nails (or paw)
                               2. to revile; abuse

i.e when you are reviled by a cat it is best to move fast!!!
