I’ve Been Shopping on the Innernets

I’ve been shopping… What could I have bought? These might give you a clue:

Wigger and Teddy

These are some of my cuddly toys. Wigger is the big tiger and Teddy is, well, the teddy bear. The little tiger is Tiggy and the black cat in the foreground, which you can’t really see properly, is an as yet unnamed pencil case. If you biggify the picture you will see that poor old Wigger is very, very dusty. He’s been with me for most of my life. Oh, sorry, just tested it and neither of these pics will biggify. I had to make smaller copies to upload and I must have overdone it, lol! Just as well though, coz I didn't really want you to see the dust in all its gruesome detail!

This is the net curtain at my bedroom window. Ahem, I should mention that although the curtains are dirty, they are not as dirty as they look in this picture! Seriously!

The two cats who have lived with me at this house liked to sit on my dressing table and look out of the window, but to improve the clarity of the view they would move the curtain aside. Not having Opposable Thumbs, they would make judicious use of a claw or four…

Actually William almost did have opposable thumbs, though he still preferred to steal our sweet corn and peas by spiking them and eating them off a claw! To see more of him and the cat who came before him, Oliver, go here and have a look in my photo album “Cats”.

BTW, I’ve just realised that I forgot to do #5 and list who had played before me in the Desktop Meme, so apologies to everykitty! My excuse is that it was about 4.30 a.m. Doh!

I think you really need to have another cat in your life :). I know of some GREAT meezer and ori breeders in the Yoo-kay :). I think that's what you should shop for.

Bringing myself back to earth however....I do like stuffed animals so if you're shopping for them that's nice too :) Great picture of your friend in the pot!

Well,if you are accepting opinions...get a House Panther(Black Cat)! Heh,heh,heh. WE cats do make good company as you know.
William had the ability to help himself I see.Cool cat.

Also reguarding #5.You did not forget to do it.I did NOT include it on my blog when you came to get it. Therefore apologies are mine,no,no, Mom's!! I even forgot to say it was chairman Mao that tagged me!!!! I have to go edit that now .Purrs!

Spiking corn and peas on a claw sounds like a very cool talent!

Ramses said...

Oh my goodness so there are cats out there like my housemate Tigmut'hep who are made for peas and sweetcorn!? It's amazing, 'cause I've always thought he was weird, what with his love of teddy bears, Lego and toy cars too... ;) Oh well he's not as dexterous as your William, far from it in fact! Mummy says he's got paws on him like an elephant and is about as dainty too! ;) It's me who turns on the TV using the remote with my paws if I get locked out of the bedroom! :) Maybe I'll teach Isis that trick once I'm feeling better... ;)

Hi again I signed your guestbook.Is there any way you can delete the one with the spelling mistake?I'm on there twice.Gah!

Mickey said...

Re place names. I think it might have to do with your internet provider.Wherever they are located is where you are "from" .I'm not 100 per cent sure tho :)
Thanks for fixing the spelling.Cheers

Hi! I just found your blog and think it's very interesting.

One of the Ones Who Came Before in my house was named Pfredd and he just loved corn any way it was fixed. Mom says the only time he would get into the trash was when corn cobs were thrown away. He'd pull out the cobs and chew them until they were completely bare!

I think that Kaze, Latte and Chase are right. You should get a kitty sibling. They are way fun. I love my brother Clyde.

Chairman Mao said...

Oh man oh man, I think you should deffinitely get a kitty sibling! I don't know what I'd do without my siblings -- I speshully love my big bruther Brainball -- he and me are the bestest of buds! -- but I also love my sisfurs, Marilyn and Dorydoo, too.

And Brainball's so happy to be propperly acknowlegged as a boy that he's grinnin' from ear to ear!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Now, that's a priceless photo. I don't know if I like sweet corn, I've never been offered any. If it comes slathered in butter, then I'm sure I'd love it. I love butter.

Hugs...G
