“NOM NOM NOM, there is NOTHING as tasty as a sock-covered foot! Unless it’s a slipper-covered foot!”

“NO! That are MY foot for chomping on! You go away!”

“Hiiii! I’m Reacher, and I’ll be in charge of eating your foot today!”

Don’t be fooled by the sweet face. Corbett also enjoys chomping on feet.

“So I told her and told her I wasn’t pregnant, and she just kept saying ‘Ha, ha, RIGHT you’re not pregnant. Give me those babies!’ and then she took me to the vet, and the VET told her I wasn’t pregnant, and apparently the VET knows more about my pregnancy or lack thereof than I do, and she was all ‘J’accuse!’, but seriously, what did I need to do, spell it out in poop or something? I TRIED TO TELL HER! And now the halcyon days of eating kitten food and sleeping off 63 snacks a day are OVER, and I ask you – is that fair? Am I to be punished for NOT being a harlot?”

Over the weekend, I spilled half a container of flour on the kitchen floor. Elwood ran right over and started EATING the flour, as if it were the finest cat treat I could have given him. I shooed him away, but not before I got a picture of him. See the coat of flour on his chin? Crazy boy.

  1. Awww Maura – you gave me the bestest laugh of all yesterday!! You really are a wonderful and very clever kitty! LOL!!!!! So not your fault hoomans tend to be er…. well not as clever as you!

    Yay!! Bookworms are lovely and adorable and just so cute as always!

    Elwood likes his flour. Now that really is a first! I like the way he’s looking as if to say “What? It’s flour, it’s spilt, it’s yummy. Woz yer problem???”.


    Take care

  2. Those are all cute pictures! What is it with kittens and feet – and actually with cats and feet. I will never understand that one!

    And Maura, you silly girl. We know it isn’t your fault that you got a bit pudgy – you just enjoyed the good life!

    And wow, Elwood and the flour – I don’t even know what to say about that one, because I just don’t get it. But then, it made me think back, and I am pretty sure someone (maybe Barney) was licking the flour I put on the table when I made pizzas. Still seems odd though.

  3. lol, maura. the whole situation is the funniest thing i’ve heard in a long time!

    i love your floury chin elwood!

    <3 reacher <3

  4. That picture of Elwood is so adorable, even more adorable once I saw the flour on his chin! I love how kitty chins can often be indicators of where they have been 😀

  5. @ Amy – more than 50 per cent of the cats I’ve lived with have been irresistibly attracted to toes! I guess it’s because they’re small quick things that often show up in cats’ fields of vision… a bit like mice… 🙂

  6. I have a kitten with a serious wheat addiction. She eats through the paper to get at bags of flour and bread. She only like the bread crust though. I’ll wake up in the morning to find the crusts chewed clean off a whole loaf of bread, the center discarded on the kitchen floor. We now hang our bread from the ceiling, away from any counter tops.

  7. Poor adorable chubby Maura-she thought life in the house was just that great I bet. Sorry your party is over little girl and welcome to reality-still not a bad thing at Crooked Acres. She just had such a wonderful little “peel me a grape” kind of thing going on. I will miss her little sweet self when she goes. Hope she finds a new owner as sweet as you’ve been to her. (Aside form the excess food ofcourse 🙂 ).

  8. I don’t know which I like better – your pix or your wit. Okay it’s the pix, but you crack me up lady.

  9. no.. no.. new kittens? aw well, Maura you’re beautiful enough I’ll forgive you for depriving me of kittens!

  10. Elwood’s flour is so sweet. I fuss at them but secretly love it when kittehs get into things they shouldn’t!

    Maura’s story is still cracking me up and the Bookworms are just as cute as they can be. Cuter, maybe!

  11. Miss Maura, you played us!
    P.S. We had a kitty two years ago who faked a pregnancy on us. Not only was she not pregnant, she’d been spayed…
