The "Notes from a cat's diary" is my favorite piece about cats -- it describes the inner mind-workings of several cats that I have been blessed to live with, including one of my current roomies, Cupcakes. Cupcakes loves me dearly, but has been attempting to assassinate me daily for years by walking in front of me at just the wrong time. She understands geometry or trig (whichever) -- when I start walking one direction and she is across the room, she starts walking at an angle that will bring her exactly in front of my feet.

Cupcakes came through the pet-door once with just the tail of an Inca dove sticking straight out in front of her - I was able to extricate the live bird and release it without a scratch. (although I've since learned that the pasteurella bacteria in a cat's mouth might have killed the bird without it receiving antibiotics.)

I love the "dog diary" also -- it's so true. I love living with both dogs and cats together because of their differences... watching the cats think caustic remarks while the dogs are bouncing around gleefully because I'm back in the room after being gone for 60 seconds...

Looks like Woody gives you a nice little head rest.

That was so funny. I loved it.

How sweet. Great shot. Archie color co-ordinates with your furniture. I thought I would attach a picture of my black devil Shadow. It made an interesting artistic picture. I saw her sitting in the sunlight and noticed the shadow she cast infront of her. So... it's entitled "Shadow's shadow". I made the image greyscale and hand colored her eyes. Kind of makes Shadow look like a panther, but she's real pussycat

Barb - I love that picture of your cat on the back of your chair. I don't have to deal with a cat on the back of my chair, but Kira likes to climb into my lap and rest her head against my left arm - making it very difficult to type! (And of course, I don't want to disturb her! ) And keeping my legs level so that she doesn't fall off is not too great as far as ergonomics go!

This same cat likes to climb on the back of my husband's chair (only while he's sitting in it) and stand so that her back legs are on the chair back and her front legs are on his shoulder - then starts licking his head (i.e., giving his head a "bath". )

Lisa - I love that picture - had me chuckling all morning.

Jeanie

Lisa your Shadow looks just like my Missy. Sorry my pic is so small

It's interesting that everyone's pets help for posture My other kitty Dimple does exactly the same as Jeanie's Kira, but I have the additional problem of my German Shepherd sleeping at my feet, so I can't move my chair forward under the desk. This means I'm probably leaning forward at a worse angle than Barb with her Woody headrest.

BigAl, it looks like Missy has a cat's favorite toy -- a paper sack. Looks like she's gotten it just like she wants it -- with some proper peekaboo holes to use to see who's watching her be adorable while playing.

Hmmm, reminds me, my cats haven't had a paper sack to play with in a while (plastic just isn't as much fun, as well as being dangerous) -- have to go to the grocery store...

Did you ever try a ball of tin foil? Mine loved batting that around. Cats are great for finding cheap toys around the house.
