Lucky (not as cute as he appears)

Last night we were relaxing on the couch...with four cats. Mike had G and Aggie on him and I had Lucky and Tuffy sprawled across my outstreached legs. Tuffy on my shins and Lucky on my thighs. Suddenly, Lucky jumps up, stands on Tuffy and bites down on his back. Tuffy hardly stirs. We laugh, I pull Lucky off, he lies back down, and we return to TV.

A little while later I said to Mike: "What the heck was that about? What do you think about Lucky getting up and jumping on Tuffy?" I hardly finish the sentence and Lucky does the exact same thing again.

Cat parts

I love my cats. Obviously. And sometimes I just take and take and take pictures of them. And I get some pretty strange shots.

Before and After

Our Aggie is such a sweet, shy kitty. She's just recently decided that she might join us downstairs once in a while. Even more surprising is that she is following the trend the others have started. Now, I know for you non-catpeople - this is pretty disgusting but some of our kitties like to sit on top of the fridge. I know, I know - health hazards, fur, etc. I don't eat anything that ever comes remotely close to touching my counters (or feed anyone things that do). If you could see how happy they are staring out the window from their fridge perch you might understand. And - if Aggie - the shyest of shy cats gets up there - she's more than welcome.

So - here's Aggie one step above the fridge on a ledge at the top of the kitchen. She's acting lovable and rolling around up there wanting her belly rubbed.

And here's Aggie during her "mishap". She rolled right off the ledge onto the fridge. I was just trying to take a picture of cute little Aggie and thanks to the wonders of old, slow technology - I got another picture I didn't mean to take. A kitty in mid-air. She didn't fall far - mind you - but it sure was funny (to us at least).

Lately, I've seen and heard about a lot of sad animals. What with Katrina and the fact that it seems to be squirrel season here at my work. (I work accross the street from a park.)

Anyway, a heartwarming story for sappy animal lovers like me:

Here's our Aggie. She was a bit younger in this picture - but I think it's a good one of her. She was (and still is) a very shy cat but she's getting braver. She's actually been on top of the fridge a lot lately. Which is something for her - she has to actually come out from under the bed to do that.

For the time being...

Since I'm out of cat photos - and since my last few posts have been "politically charged" - I thought I'd share one of my favorite pics of W.

I promise this pic has not been doctored in anyway. It was just poor placement of the fella. I found this picture on Yahoo a day after the 4th of July this year. I hope you enjoy it.

Great Quote

"The United States Senate has been hijacked by the Democratic leadership," said Majority Leader Bill Frist. "They have no convictions, they have no principles, they have no ideas," the Republican leader said.

Lovely quote. Seems like this quote could be useful somewhere...

or maybe retracted.
