Note from Rudha-an: Lastech wrote most of this post. I wrote the bit about Titanescu. It was a joint effort, but he did most of the work. 🙂
Miss Jenny has been picking up an annoying habit lately. Some time at night, she’ll pick up one of her balls with her front paws then toss it or just drop it. The sound of her hard plastic toy with the pieces of tin inside hitting the floor wakes me instantly.
I now hide the toy in question every evening. But that got me thinking about all the odd stuff the pointy eared ones do. Once in a while I’ll find a present on the bed near my pillow. Nothing gross, just odd… Jenny leaves me the occasional wine cork or curiouser yet, the odd potato.
Why? What goes on behind those blue peepers? The Boober had his own eccentricities. Like loving my singing Corsican songs to him. From across the room he’d look up wide eyed then amble over to sit on my chest purring. I couldn’t begin to tell you how we started this routine, he and I, let alone why he only reacted to this particular type of song.
Kitsy the Space Oddity rabbit kicked me the first time I blew raspberries on his gut, but he grew to enjoy the attention. With him, it wasn’t just one odd thing. The way he did everything was strange and entertaining.
Tito likes to spoon water off the fountain with his paw to drink it. And when he begs for food it’s usually for another cat. Go figure…
Rudha-an: Titanescu is still showing us who he really is. His real oddities will shine through at some point.
Why are the pointy eared people so weird at times? The video says it all. 🙂
It’s Caturday again and Time for the pointy eared people to shine.
If you visit often you’ll know that we adopted a crotchety older kitty earlier this year. We alternate between calling him Titanescu and Titanus Grumpicus Bunny Butt. He spent the first month hissing and swatting at the other two. Then it was reduced to the occasional half-hearted swat. Finally, they could sleep within a foot of one another for at least 10 minutes without a slapfest.
Then I saw this:
Then it went to this:
The above is a milestone as this pic shows what Titanescu is normally like. 🙂
Cute warning! Be sure watch until the end though. My thanks to a Facebook friend who shared this with me. 🙂
I’m hoping to post more often now. I started a project almost a year ago that took up far too much time but I finally finished it. I have a new project, but there’s no time limit and I can do a bit here and there. I’m hoping to have the rest of the pics from our Angel Island trip posted soon.
Now it’s time for the pointy eared people to shine.
Titanescu, on the other hand…
This is just a random bird pic. I was at the park a while back and this Steller’s Jay collecting peanuts.
As anyone with cats knows, they spend most of their time sleeping followed by going berserk for about ten minutes. Sadly, their manic moments usually occur at 0400 when we’re sound asleep at which point we become trampolines. As a result, it’s usually easy to get pics of them being lazy, but not playing.
For your amusement (or horror) I now present a video by cyriak. It begins with cobwebs, but in true cyriak fashion, it ends up with a lot more and gets very weird. 🙂
Just in case the video creeped you out, here’s some cuteness to make the “ick” factor go away.
Another Caturday rolls around and we’ve gone from having a heatwave to having a very cool spell. The pointy eared people are happier, at any rate.
This post is running late as Tito wanted lots of attention and it’s impossible to type around a cat with terminal elevator butt. Of course, he got a lot of scritches and pettings. As you can tell from the title, the theme is “eyes” today.
I couldn’t resist this vid by simonscat at YouTube.
Today he is 49, so next year he hits the half century mark. I can’t resist a dig as I’m going to be 52 at the end of the year. 🙂
For his birthday, I decided to take some photos that he took one night and play with them. They were taken with his phone, in the dark, and without flash. He came home with the first one and wasn’t fond of it at first. I played with it and showed it to him. He liked it and came home with a few more.
For Lastech with much love from me, Tito, Miss Jenny, and Titanescu
All photos are by Lastech and I call them Carousel Dreams
Here is the original photo he brought home. It was taken through the plastic sheeting that covers the carousel at night.
Fall is here. The weather is very confused. Summers in San Francisco are generally cold and foggy. Fall is supposed to be warm and sunny. Karl the Fog can’t seem to make up his mind if he’s coming or going. The other day at the beach (previous post) it was sunny but very windy and cold. We got so sand blasted that I was pulling sand out of my ears. Tonight, Karl returns and tomorrow we may have rain.
The weather isn’t consistent, but the pointy eared people are. They’re consistently strange, sleepy, or cute. Take your pick. 🙂
And from ShoKo (Shorty and Koko) at Youtube, you have this video proving that cats are strange. 🙂
