Before I get started, Stormy wanted me to say something. In reference to Ammy's post about the Cat Burglar, she wanted me to reassure all our friends out there, especially our feline friends at Jan's Funny Farm and Witty Kitty over at Forget Sit & Stay, that no harm will come to ANY kitty around here. Stormy forbids it. We can stare, but that's where it ends. Or else. So fear not. And she's on to the fact that Am and Dave don't agree.
Anyroo, did you happen to see Witty Kitty's post today? It was all about Cat Naps for Dogs; it was so inspiring! Witty Kitty - this post's for you!
As I was saying ... a Working Group member's work is never quite done. And my job this week, (among other tasks, of course) was to come up with a new cute pose. This one works paw-in-paw with WK's Cat Naps for Dogs advice. Without furthur ado... here I am:
I'm a professional; do not try this at home!
Exhausting just looking at me, isn't it? It was all I could do to hold the pose until Mom and Dad saw me and found the camera.
Like Witty Kitty suggested, I like to cat nap alone. I like my own space. I also usually like for my head to be under something, propped up on something, or for my feety-feet to be crushed against something. Stormy also gives us bonus points if we're laying somewhere that makes the bipeds have to step over us or go around. What are your felines on that, Witty Kitty?
In this new pose, I've got the feety-feet thing going on, plus a tail prop-up. Check it out:
Pretty cool, don't you think? And the snooter balancing ever-so-carefully on the edge of the step:
Not only did Dad feel compelled to step over me to go upstairs to get the camera, but Mom HAD to smooch my snooter. I mean ... look at it. How can any biped resist?
Here's one last look for you, from a slightly different perspective:
Mom was worried that I might totally melt and slip down the steps or something. That got me not just snooter smoochies and camera time (I happen to LOVE the camera!), but caused Mom to fuss over me with some sweet talk, worried about my fall. Being a very agile Siberian, let me assure you, I was never in danger of falling - but did enjoy the schmoopy talk. Well... up until the time I'd had enough, then jumped straight up and onto my feet (rather like a kitty, I might add), then took off in a huff.
It was great! But very, very hard work. I had to hide out and take another cat nap in one of my favorite spots to recharge my batteries. Whew! It's a good thing I'm a trained professional!
Play bows and cat naps!
