Fall Fever

The cats were nuts today!  Swinging from the chandeliers.  If we had chandeliers, that is.

First up, Barney.

We started on the ground, fighting off the Red Menace.  Not the Communists, you sillies.  The sash to my robe.

Next it was straight up the screen to the top of the door.  We can do this these days because it’s been the most glorious fall weather ever.

Barney pauses to consider.

Wonder what’s back there.

[Well you can’t see!  Not for family viewing!]

OK, Barnes.  Here’s the money shot, to make up for that rank indiscretion.

Uh-oh. That somnolent look again.   Get down, Barnes, before the need to nap overcomes.

Whew.  Safe in the ess.  (No idea what the airplane ears were for.)

Next up, Bugs.  You have picture the next sequence done at top speed!!

First, we must take a mad dash and flying leap up into Base Camp shelves.  It’s a wonder those poor excuses for shelves didn’t collapse; as you can see, they’re pretty lame.

Next, into the bedroom pronto.  Air conditioner, with locust (by Bugs’s chin) who chose to creep into the window-frame and die there.  Why?  Why ask why.  I like the balancing tail.  Notice also the lovely African piece, relegated down there in the corner because various tails kept whipping her off the wall and onto the floor.  Life with cats, you know what I’m talkin’ bout.  At least I can see part of her this way.

Next post-haste into the living room.  Barely caught him as he dashed past Nelson’s Column.

Long-gone here.  I think I hear him back in Base Camp.

Yup.  Base Camp north window.  Note the balancing tail again.  I love the tracery effect of the vines.  Which, truth be told, are threatening to engulf this little cabin.  Must be a relative of kudzu I got growing out there.

Now the bathroom north window.  I must do something about that cord.  Kindly ignore the dryer-sheet stuffed in the crack there.  That was from the ant infestation.  Ever heard that one? — dryer sheets make ants disappear.  True.  Works.

Thank Cod.  Winding down at last.  Too bad about the blue eye.  Red-eye removal wouldn’t work.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

  1. It looks like they’ve become great pals!

  2. Nice weather makes for wonderful doors and windows open, but also makes for some nutty kitties! MOL Love that they’re doing their own thing, but also ending up in the same door!

      Egging him on, are we. But srsly, I really am happy he’s so full of beans. And how about that butt-shot. Never mind the censored bit. It’s that scoop of white belly that did me in, I tell you frankly.

    Who needs television when you have cats?

  5. I can see you’re having good times with your boys! And that butt shot? Love it!

  6. MelanieJ says:

    Hahaha, censored. Thanks for making me choke on my drink!

    It sounds like your boys are getting along better than most of my cats (with the exception of Annie and Bit) ever have. Reluctant toleration with perhaps the threat of mutual destruction should negotiations break down too far. That’s about how it goes.

    That last picture is just gorgeous, with the two of them sitting side-by-side.

  7. Sounds like mad cat alley in your place. Very funny post 😀

    Love the huge mitt in the first photo! Great pictures 🙂

    • nadbugs says:

      Really, his paws are forces of nature. I want a really good shot of them stretched out to max coverage, to show the mind-boggling size and, also, the bright pinkness. Truly amazing.

  9. There’s nothing like a cool down to get the wind in a Cat’s fur and cause crazypantedness!

    Barnes keeps a pretty clean machine, by the way…

  10. looloo says:

    Hello, Anita, is Barney narcoleptic, or did he close his eyes just when wou took the picture?

    They are really cute!


    • nadbugs says:

      Honestly, I don’t know what gives with those crazy eyes! He makes them all the time like that, and I really don’t think it has anything at all to do with being sleepy. He is just — Barney!

  11. CATachresis says:

    I am exhaustipated!!! 🙂 Glad you censored the shot. Sensibilities you know! 😉

  12. LOVE Barney. What a character. Thanks for your kind words and wisdom. Purrs to all.

  13. OMC! they were both on a tear! I do that sometimes…maybe I need a partner to up my game…hmmmmmm, paw pats, Savannah

  14. Basil says:

    Looks like they both had a very busy day!!

  15. For once I find censorship really amusing… No wonder Bugs doesn’t do hugs – he’s too busy patrolling and protecting. Good job, Bugs!

  17. Marilia says:
