Behold the ferocious watch kitty

Penwiper is very ferocious. If he hears a strange noise outside, he'll run to the top of the stairs, growling menacingly.

If someone actually rings the doorbell, though, well...

Happy Birthday!

Just a short note ...

It was on this day in 2004 that our senior feline overlords, Whitey and Billy were born.  Happy birthday to our Catzilla Brothers!

Random note ... I just noticed that as of this writing, each Catzilla brother has exactly the same number of posts (156).   What a team.

Photo Weekend Extra: The Longest Cat

Yesterday Billy joined me for watching the The Longest Day, the 1962 movie about D-Day. Here he is lying on my leg:

And then when I got up, he did what he always does -- claim the warm spot for himself:
"You were sitting here, but it's mine now."
Fortunately, he's not big enough to commandeer the entire couch.

Photo Weekend: Penwiper's Nose Redux

In a shocking turn of events, Penwiper got his nose scratched.   Again.   Here it is after it has healed a couple of days.

Penwiper arrived on my desk just as I captioned the photo.  As I put him in the tower behind my desk (the same one as pictured), I also felt a small scab on the tip of his left ear.    I really wish he didn't annoy his armed housemates so.

It's a cat's world, we just live here

The Pacific Northwest is, apparently, the cat capital of the United States. In Seattle, cats outnumber both dogs and children under 18.

While the Kitten Farm is not in the City of Seattle proper, the Feline Overlords inform me that the area's priorities are where they should be. Or they would, if it weren't for their afternoon naps.
