Some Days You Just Can't Win


OK, so the Princess is feeling a bit down today. But at least I didn't have the kind of day this little guy had.

Yeah, sometimes I throw the cats in a pool of water when I'm having a bad day too. :-)

I like the way his little ears are laid flat against his head.

I have felt like that a lot lately. My tail is twitching, too :p

Heh. Me, too. :) Lots of good things happening lately, some stressors that test me, too. :P

In Russia, cats throw YOU in water and make YOU swim. Bwahahaha!

Now, bring me Moose and Squirrel!

His expression tells me that he's going to remember who did this to him, and his payback won't be polite when he's bigger.

Czar Brouhaha reminds me of a joke.

Countess Maria Bolkonskaya celebrates her 50th anniversary, the whole local Hussar regiment is invited, and the Countess boasts about her presents. "Cornet Obolensky presented me a lovely set of 50 Chinese fragrant candles. I loved them so much that I immediately stuck them into the 7 seven-branch candlesticks you see on the table. Quite fortunate numbers! Unfortunately there is one candle left, and I don't know where to stick it..." — The whole Hussar regiment takes a deep breath... And the Hussar Colonel barks out: "Hussars, not a word!!!"

Huh. I thought Grim was pronounced the same in both languages.

Different inflection on the vowel, maybe?

It's the roll of the *r* that gives it that Eastern bloc schwaggah.

How to give a kitteh a bath. Kevlar gloves, leather...

I liked his paws and ears. He just looks like he needs to go to his mama for a licking.

speaking of licking, every time my mom washed her hair, our late cat would come and lick her hair... very diligently... with a "poor-wet-you" expression on his face...

Aww. That is priceless! Trying to dry her off.
That is what makes a pet so priceless; what they give to you of themselves.

I am sorry for your loss.
