Robyn, here in Ireland it’s actually warm enough this week that we need to leave some windows open at night to sleep comfortably. Our windows here are usually divided into the lower portion which opens out like a door, and a smaller, upper part that pushes out like an awning. It’s the upper portion we’d opened a little ways to allow some air in, but we still had blinds down and closed and the curtains drawn. All of that background info to say that this morning, several hours before my alarm was due to go off, we were awakened by the squeak of paws against the window and then the inevitable crash of our neighbour’s cat, having jumped through that little upper window from the roof, landing graceless in the blinds. Our own cat was none too pleased with the breaking and entering, while the neighbour’s cat hissed at her like she was the one in the wrong house! Let me tell you, acting as peace negotiator between those two and trying to convince the interloper to curtail his leisurely tour of our house was not my idea of pre-7am activity. I thought I might just be able to get back to sleep for an hour before having to get up, but our own cat waited until I was almost sleepy again before she regurgitated something gross on our bed (for the first time ever!). That’s when I gave up and got up. It’s a good thing they’re so cute.
This made me laugh SO HARD. Been there, done that!
I’m starting to think that Carlin could be the Poutiest Cat on the Internet. Even when he’s sitting there purring, he looks like he’s pouting about some perceived injustice.
Yay for Rickles! And I hope his new family looks at Love & Hisses so they can see his awesome “Jazz Paws Somersault” video!! 😀
I’m sharing this comment just so I can post that video again!
Robyn, the kittens made it onto Buzzfeed. Scroll down to #20.
I love Buzzfeed so so so much (also, we’re gonna take over the world with that Rickles video, I think)!
I clicked “Random Post” just for the fun of it and got the story of Stefan being half feral. Even more humor for the day!
HA. Yeah, that’s Stefan. He is one feral boy – I mean, when he’s not flopped down in the middle of the floor on his back or giving me the Hopeful Eyes when I’m making dinner, he’s SO feral.
I’m amazed that he ever had the energy to make us think he was feral.
As an FYI, I’m at the end of the pictures I took before the kittens went off to Petsmart (though you’ll be seeing Louis for a few more days). So savor them!
Video! Before Louis went off to Petsmart, and he and Skelton (and you can see a little of Carlin in the background) got all smug and self-satisfied (and sleepy).
