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L) Paperweight services will be withdrawn if the imprint "Court Summons" is accidentally branded on my chest from the Council notice lying on top of the pile of final demands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

  14. Austin, your ability to type your conditions in numerical order is truly giggle worthy...um...inspiring! You're a cat who knew how to lead the household beautifully by laying down the law immediately! :p

  15. We hope all those conditions are met, Austin. But you were the best looking dust trap and paperweight.

  16. Oh we love your post today! MOL MOL MOL!

  17. You certainly were a little guy and should not have been expected to know what to ask for or demand then. We suspect that even if you did not negotiate for all those items on your list that you do exactly as you want at all times. Mom had to look up pantechnicon. We are sort of surprised you did not come up with a good definition for that one. A salesman who tries to "con"vince a shopper that the pants he is about to buy are worn by all the most accomplished and successful techies. We're sure your definition would have been better. Anywho...thanks so much for joining and supporting our blog hop, dear furiend. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  20. Well Austin, I've made a copy of that list of demands you SHOULD have presented when you came to live there because in my NEXT life I intend to present a similar list to my human.....I've run this household now for 15 years with no written rules - it's worked for me rather well but I feel in my next life, I want something in writing to hold over the head of my human in case she/he/it begins to become lax in keeping me in the custom to which I want to be accustomed. (huh?) Well you know what I mean!

    Hugs, Sammy

    ReplyDelete
  24. OH! Your numbering system ROCKS!

    Also, how in the world do you pronounce "TWR"??? Where are the VOWELS???

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love those terms and conditions as well as the definition.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Live and learn, huh Austin? It would have been great to know then what you know now. Love your numbering system.

  30. You drive a hard bargain, Austin, but we think your human should be able to live up to those terms. If not, we know you will whack and put the bitey on anyway! MOL! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. My goodness, you are a kitty who ponders lots of topics. I just enjoy my good food, beds, toys, love. Maybe I should give my living conditions more thought.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Whoa! Hard bargain, Austin. Can your Mom keep up?

    ReplyDelete
  33. We sure hope all of your conditions were met.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sadly you missed that opportunity by a few years. Do you think you could negotiate a new contract?

    ReplyDelete
  35. So terms and conditions??? You mean like the conditions you put in your hairs to make them soft?
    Love,

  37. Ha ha ha! Buddy, how old were you then?? Clearly you had been STARVED--why, you're so thin I can hardly see you! I do perform anything that could remotely be called a "duty" for the Human, no matter what kind of payment she offers. Who knows where it could lead???
