Chats du jour

Photobucket

Bring it on, Shirley. The game is afoot. We'll see how much you want to jump on the island now. Cats aren't supposed to like sticky stuff on their feet*. I have covered the island with upside-down contact paper.

Great. She found the one non-contact paper space. But she's not stepping onto the sticky paper.

Ah. But she is. This was at least her third trip on to the paper. I kept hearing the sound of feet being pulled away from the adhesive. I think she likes it. She won. How come the dumb cat keeps outsmarting me?

* We used to put scotch tape on our cat's feet when I was a kid. Mean, I know, but also very funny.

Ok, this is her at all of 6 weeks old. But trust me!

Elizabeth, our cats do look alike! Ours are lynxpoint Siamese, which is a cross between a tabby and Siamese. They get the worse qualities of both cats: they talk all the time and they shed like crazy.

Mine is a stray, so we're unsure of her lineage. More than that, she was found as part of a litter: her brother is twice her size and a long haired black cat with green eyes. Her sister was a orange/grey/white calico. Far be it from me to insult someone's mother, but little Chai's was clearly a feline of loose morals.

Whoa. Unwed cat mothers who sleep around. Sounds like an episode of Jerry Springer.

No, your kitty is *our* kitty's twin! Or are there triplets? Is she a snowshoe? Love the contact paper... and the fact she is up there anyway!

Princess, the crazy cat lady said she was a lynxpoint, but it turned out that all the papers we got were for another cat, so we have no idea. They both shed a ton, for whatever that's worth, so there's not a lot of Siamese in them, much to my dismay.
