  1. My Siamese, Simon, is a minimalist. So he spends his free time tap-tap-tapping everything on every surface to the floor. This is why he thinks his full name is Simon G*ddammit. Ed, our buff tabby, has no irritating habits and I wonder if it’s because he’s an indoor/outdoor cat. Maybe he gets all of his orneriness out while he’s outside.
    I think I’ll name my next two cats Hookers and Blow.

  4. If that were any other one sentence post, I’d have some complaining to do, but considering we got two Henry pictures out of it…I’ll allow it. I think he’s adorable even when he’s up to no good wrecking your aluminum blinds.

  5. Aida Velveeta kneads my hair every night so that I look like the chick from Dilbert in the morning. She sleeps under the covers in the guest room all day.
    Those are her two speeds –hair dresser or decorator accessory.
    Awww, Henry! You’re almost a growed up cat now!

  8. Thank you for the OHPs – I was beginning to think that because he has entered that awkward gangly teenage stage that you weren’t going to post pics of him anymore. He’s still cute as a button.
    Aren’t those the renter blinds you want to replace anyway?

  9. Henry is adorable, ornery or otherwise!
    What are those things lined up at angles on that shelf behind Henry? There’s a beige one, a white one, a blue one and a black one. I see buttons on the blue one.

    Mattel Electronic Baseball
    Mattel Electronic Football
    Space Invaders
    A Roulette game?
    I have every one of those exact games! Junie, either you and I or Marv and I are kindred spirits!

  11. I was gonna comment as to what those “things” are, but Hulk beat me to the punch. Now I can only wait with child-like giddiness hoping that Marvin will let me play with them whenever I come to visit. I had the baseball and football version as a kid but my wicked step-monster threw them away when she sold my childhood home.

  12. My youngest and skinniest cat, Angus MacPhee, does that exact same thing to the blinds. He especially likes to pull that shit to the blinds on either side of our bed in the wee hours of dawn. It’s loud and annoying as hell, due to the fact that he has to climb on either night stand to do it and knock books, glasses of water, alarm clocks and cel phones all over the floor in his weird compulsion to see the sun coming up.
    Then he is tired after all that activity and wants to cat-nap all day. Ask me how much fun it is to walk by him and “accidentally” knock into the chair he is sleeping on and wake him up.
    See, dog lovers would never understand why cat lovers would put up with such annoying habits.
    Thanks Hulk for answering what those remote control looking devices were!

  13. I feel much better now. Thanks, Hulk. Only reason I noticed those gizmos was because they’re at a most disturbing angle. Why the angle, Junie? That would drive me bonkers. Things have to be at perpendicular in my world. (OCD much?)

  14. Yes but does he do the “I’m an African Lion stalking my prey”? Lester the head of security (our old cat) would pretend he was stalking big game in Africa, insert one of the dogs here, and then he would pounce from very high up with claws extended. This is probably what got him eaten by coyotes.

  15. Lately I’ve been thinking about getting a kitten. I adore kittens and have so missed their cuteness. Our cat is 9 years old and we are afraid she might revert to a shitting, pissing mess if we brought a kitten into our home.

  16. I love teenage cats, or “cattens” as we call them around our house. Henry has big feetses to grow into; I predict he will be a big cuddly lump of sweetness in a few years.

  17. LOVE that Henry! Ya gotta forgive all when you see that sweet fella’s feets and legses all stretched out like that. As far as being a major PITA sometimes, I’ll put Moses up against Henry any day. Moses can jump from floor to about 5 feet up, no prob, and climbs every friggin’ thing in the house. Which might not be so ding dang annoying if he didn’t also feel compelled to very delicately and deliberately push everything he encounters to the floor. Pure cat.
    Furry, I was tickled by your description of Aida Velveeta’s two speeds – so funny!
