Cats on Tuesday...

Quite an eventful week for the cats.  Cath and Helen came to lunch which ruined Charlie's day and didn't do much for Pepper either.  Both are martyrs to their nerves.  Mrs P took it in her stride of course and Posky lapped up the worship from more adoring females.  I then discovered that PETA had also used Mrs P's photo for Feline Friday too!  Despite this moment of fame she did blot her copy-book somewhat this morning by asking for seconds at breakfast and then throwing up in the hall.  Hey ho...  

As Pepper and Posky featured in Cats on Tuesday last week it seemed only fair that I featured the other miscreants this week.

Here's Charlie doing his...
'I've thought of a plan so cunning you could
stick a tail on it and call it a weasel' look.


Mrs P and Charlie ignore each other...25/366
This is just unheard of!
Not a brilliant shot but an even of such rarity
deserves to be recorded.
This was Charlie trying to menace Mrs P off
'her' blanket.  Mrs P is obviously made
of sterner stuff, and Charlie caved in first and got down,
at which point Mrs P moved to the middle of the blanket and
spread out so he couldn't get back up!


Mrs P with the new lens... 24/366
... and this is her looking triumphant
about the whole thing...
'We shall fight them on the cat blanket...'


The first and last shots were taken with the new 50mm f/1.8 lens - I am positively swooning over the lovely depth of field...

I know that when they "fight" for a place ! Little Rosie is a real little bitch, she looks where the favourite places from the others are and then sits on it with a triomphant look, Pookie gets angry then, Arthur is a philosophe and waits until she is gone, Kim as usual doesn't care, she loves all places without humans !
I wished I could record Rosie's strange growling, but of course so far it didn't work !

The battles over territory can look and sound pretty scary but I found amongst my gang it's all "hot air"

Lovely close-up indeed! And blanket time is worth fighting for!

Were it any other cat, that first photo would be an innocent one of a cat merely washing his paw. Only Charlie could make such an activity look like sinister plotting! :-)

On the photo of him trying to bully Mrs. P off the coveted blanket, it looks like you took your photo at the very instant a bit of self-doubt and worry was creeping in. I think he was under the misapprehension that Mrs. P would have vacated the blanket by that point. Mrs. P, on the other hand, looks positively sanguine in her self-assurededness. She KNOWS she'll prevail in the Battle of the Blanket - and she looks not only triumphant in that final photo, but a bit challenging too. "Anyone else want to try to take my blanket? Or call me "Fatty" one more time? Bring it on!" LOL

Such nefarious doings in your household! I love the cat tales.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

fabulous photos and I am sooooo happy to be back! I never stopped following, I just had such an awful time reading the old typeface...THIS is fantastic!

Au and Target said...

MOL, watching cat politics is one of our favourite things. Isn't it odd that some cats adore company and their fur family hate it equally as much?

MacKayla the Empress asked me to convey her congratulations to Mrs. P for standing her ground and winning the day -- she is most impressed since she has to argue with her brothers quite a bit over *her* space! How dare they, the presumption!

Your kitties are beautiful, I loved all the photos!

Many thanks.
Laloofah: Yes I think Mrs P's philosophy is 'He's not worth the effort of arguing with, if I ignore him he'll go away poor misguided fool...', and it worked! I never noticed before but she does look a bit 'in your face' in that last shot, LOL! 'You wanna piece of me??!?!'.
Caren: Hiya (waves). So glad to see you and Cody again.
Au and Target: Cats are strange and unusual creatures - I've lived with them for years and still don't understand them (although I understand them slightly better than I do men who are an entirely different kettle of fish).
Marie: We are humble and grateful that the Empress sent a message to Mrs P. Thank you xx
