During the last spate of dreary weather …

21 May

After that one nice day when I took the pictures of the electrical transmission tower (about 3, 4 posts back) we got another rather prolonged spell of weather that was, to say the least, non-photogenic. Dreary and grey, in other words, and not too bloody warm, either.
Well, as usual, the little Oly was within reach, and Mr Cat was doing what he does best, i.e., being himself, and therefore, amusing.
So, here they are, from several different days.
First, his intense look:

(Note: There was absolutely nothing unusual out that window at that time.)

This is during a section of his usual daily 20-hour nap:

And here, he says “WTF do YOU want? This better be important!”

Next, after having found himself a suitable pedestal (a very sturdy shoe box), He regales everyone with stories of how he was the model for the Egyptian Sphinx. Due to the construction of his mouth and vocal apparatus, the closest he can get to “Sphinx” is “Mrrrow?”

I reckon it’s just lucky for us that we appreciate his true importance.

“You better believe it, Bud!”

“Aha! Trying to sneak up on me in the dark, eh?”

“Cripe! I’m going back to being a sphinx again.”

“I’m getting mixed up … no … sleepy, that’s it.”

“Good night, folks …”

    All of that plus our cat is talkative. Extremely. When we come home from work she will tell us how her day was, how much it sucks being left alone at home and what she really thinks about us.

    And then she will repeat it.

    I work with a load of cat haters. They’re mad! Mad, I tell you! What isn’t there to love about cats!

      True. I’ve only met a couple of them that had attitude problems.
