    1. He really does! He didn't seem amused that I was laughing at him, either!

    2. Cats really do know how to give the evil eye. If looks could kill I'd be dead several times over.

    3. Velvet is the one here that really can give the evil eye. I think she's saying, "Don't even think about trying to pet me!"

  2. That's pretty clever though, maybe it's easier if you have fur to tuck your legs into.

  4. Betsy, they (the photos and the kitties) just keep getting better and better. Love the eyes. You can really imagine them thinking what you wrote in the captions. Juvenile Coopers Hawk on my next door neighbors' roof today. That means no bird feeder business for a while now. Lynne in NC

    1. I used to have a hawk hang around our neighborhood every year, waiting for birds to be in the feeder. Haven't seen one the last few years...maybe it's the cats. Although, cats hang around the feeder for the same reason the hawk did! haha.

  5. I'm not sure why, but we always referred to this as the meatloaf position. Ha!

  6. Oh that is too funny. I would have been laughing too. They do look quite ROUND with the feet tucked in. Love how they talk to you.

  8. Remember those toys we had that looked like a clown or something and had a round bottom (?) weighted with lead so that no matter how much you tried to push them over they wobbled back upright? I give you Jack! Next time he does that, give him a prod and see if comes back upright. . . . . .

    1. Yes! That is exactly what I think of when I look at him! Hilarious!

    2. I think Samantha is thinking "Oh, NO! Not that camera again! Can't a girl have a bit of peace and quiet?"

      Delete
    3. Yep...I couldn't even get her to look at me! Of course, it was hardly fair since I was making fun of her at the same time. :)

    4. You are very naughty you know! Go and stand in the corner.

    5. Cats have feelings. If I laugh at Dinky I am rewarded with a withering icy glare. . . . .for hours after!

    6. You have a great sense of humor and I enjoy reading your blog.

    7. Keith ~ I went and made dinner instead of standing in the corner. ha.

      111 ~ Thank you! I always enjoy it when you stop by! :)

  11. Funny cat conversation . . . . they definitely look as though they are thinking something . . . . like, "Where's my tea?" . . . . . :)

    1. Weren't there some called Weebles? Seems like I remember a little catchy tune, "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down..." ♪♪

      Yes, she's a pretty little thing, isn't she? She's the only one of 9 kittens from Velvet with those slanted eyes...so girly!

      Delete
    2. Yes - "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down" ha! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFzhjnjXc2o

      Her eyes are just stunning - I don't think I have ever seen a cat like that with such slanted eyes. Beautiful.

    3. She's really sweet, too..the one that greets all the guys with licks on their faces. And when I say hi to her, she always gives a little meow back. Cute!

  13. I had to read the comments before leaving mine and sure enough, Anita said what I was thinking. We also call it the meatloaf position. It was from an illustrated cat book by artist B. Kliban popular back in the 80s. http://www.gocomics.com/klibans-cats/2013/06/27

    1. Yep...the speech bubbles say it all...

  16. Too funny! Our last cat used to sit like that and tip over, so we call it kitty tipping mode. :)

    1. Oh, that is so funny he would tip over! I've never seen one do that..so far they've all kept their balance.

  17. Cats are so cool! They can get into the weirdest places and spaces. Mine doesn't get up on the counter or table, but she loves to try to sit in the window sill. She's just too fat to stay up there very long.

    1. They certainly are entertaining, aren't they? Never a dull moment....they even make me laugh when they are sleeping with all of their funny twitches and positions.

  19. Oh my goodness, Betsy! Those pictures are absolutely AWESOME! And I love the way you have typed their words! That could TOTALLY be what they are saying!
