Feline Friday – #109 – good places to sleep

I packed some household items into a box which I left by the front door to take out to the garage in order to donate them to Goodwill. When I attempted to pick up the box I felt some movement inside the box. A snake?

A little nose appeared in the opening of the box. No, I don’t think this is a snake. Just a Monster.

Lucky for Frankie the Monster he decided to make an appearance before I left him at the Goodwill dropoff!

Later on I sat out on the deck to enjoy the last of the sun’s rays. Frankie jumped on my stomach and settled down. Freddie The Giant Cat was not happy with this arrangement so he very uncharacteristically pushed Frankie out of the way and settled on my stomach himself, forcing Frankie to slide down to my knees.

I was surprised that Frankie accepted this but perhaps he was too comfy to argue. Good thing I only have two cats or I would need longer legs.

Feline Friday – #107 – posers or poseurs

This pose scared me. Is Freddie morphing into a boombox or is the boombox morphing into Freddie?


A poseur is someone who poses for effect, or behaves affectedly, who affects a particular attitude, character or manner to impress others, or who pretends to belong to a particular group. (en.wikipedia.org). Sometimes I get the feeling this definition fits Frankie to a T… or is that an F for Feline?

In the above two photos Freddie is demonstrating two of his favorite sleep positions. So far I’ve catalogued 1,237 distinct different positions (!)

I’m not crazy about either of the cats sleeping on the desk but at least Frankie fits in between the keyboard and monitor somewhat better than Freddie The Giant Cat

Freddie

Hey, Freddie knows good art when he sees it so he likes to snuggle up to my painting of the Alaskan Fjords in this tiny basket.

Surprisingly, Frankie is more of a book worm… and he admires my tile collection too!


These guys certainly look like they are sleeping the slumber of the dead but I hope they don’t need that final expense life insurance anytime soon!

Oh no, Freddie did it again. He hit the power switch with his Big Butt and just as Columbo was about to explain how he figured out who the murderer was, the TV shut off. This happens about five times an hour. And, you may notice he knocked the antenna off on to the floor. But I have to admit I’m getting a better picture now!
