Overdue cat blogging

The marvellous fluffiness of Pavlov's cat made me realise that there haven't been enough cats on this blog, despite there being plenty of cat action around Duck's Private Jetty.

Look at them.

Mr Padge

Mr Pooter

Butter wouldn't melt in their mouths, would it?

But witness this:

That's what happens when you watch them too much. They start showing off. All over the garden, all over the house. Sometimes we have to put them on their naughty chairs to make them ponder their behaviour. It doesn't seem to make much difference. Where's the Cat Nanny when you need her?

Wicked exhibitionist moggies. Tch.

(PS: Did you mean to disable quacks on the previous post? we wanna mock the spammers too!)

Argh! No I didn't. It's fixed now, so feel free to mock without mercy. pack of nobs, all of them.
Has anyone got the one I got this morning that warned of someone hacking into 'popular Australian banks' and asked you to be careful of your details and to click a link? It had a very official email name but the 'real' email name (quite obviously on show) was something really dumb and unofficial. Meh.

Mr Padge looks as though he disapproves. Has he been hanging out with the disapproving rabbits over at Kate's?

Ampersand Duck said...

Padge has the most bunny-like capacity for disapproval, but oddly enough, he's a very placid cat that doesn't give a stuff as long as his belly is full. Pooter is the disapprovingest kitty in the world; nothing is quite good enough for him, but he doesn't have the body fat to convey bunny levels of snobbery.

Both cats discovered the Disapproving Rabbits site a few months ago and are BIG fans, which is why they have put it in their section of the sidebar. When they sit on my lap/desk/keyboard, they insist upon my visiting their favorite sites, no matter what I'm doing. It's very distracting!

Extremely bad cats who need immediate and sustained punishing, I suggest letting them sit on your lap and giving them each seventy strokes. That will teach them, perhaps.

Splendid cats you have, and burmese ones too.
My favourite indeed, though Tonkinese is just as nice.

The hallmark of a truly civilised individual is the owning of a pair of these cats....

oh, that would be me, too.
For punishment I kiss their noses.

Nice animation, Ducky. And while you think your comments link is fixed, I have to report that it is only half fixed - it's not displaying the correct number of comments. It said '2'...

Those boys of yours are wonderful, do you ever feel outnumbered?

Ampersand Duck said...


But then, I remember a time when I was a single parent with one boy child, a female cat, 2 female guinea pigs and 2 presumably (or at least accepted as) female fish. Boy child got a bit cranky about it at times, so I guess it's kit for kat.

Mummy/Crit said...

Well, indeed. There must be balance in the universe.
