Friday Night Mews-ings...

Tallulah has become fascinated with the cursor on my computer screen in the past couple of days...
She's good, though, she touches the screen very carefully with her claws retracted (thank goodness!)...

I wonder if she recognizes Leo on the screen...
~
When one of my "Angel Kitties" (if you don't know about them, look back at my post from March 23rd...), Muppet, first came to us (she was dumped downtown behind my husband's shop...) and we were at our first vet visit to make sure we weren't dealing with FIV or anything before bringing her home, there was a poster with a cat face in the examining room...Muppet was really staring at it, and our vet said, "Look at that...she recognizes that as another cat!" ~
So, I think they pay attention, even if the image isn't moving.
Mine certainly watch television, and "Video Catnip"....whoa! They love it!

Oh, let me play with your camera strap, too, Mom!

Here's my sweet Angel-Muppet...♥

Leo got a bath last night...look how fluffy he is! Persians can be kind of "oily", so besides regular pet shampoo he gets one lathering with Dawn, like they use on the poor little marine animals that get oil on them from spills...
If you look at Tallulah's fur in the photos above, you can see it looks kind of "clumpy", even with grooming...she's next for a bath!

What?? Another bath? ~ NO!
It's okay, Leo...you're de-greased for a while!

One more thing...
Look at this scary reflection!
Don't worry, he's dead...(a natural death, I am assuming)...
Jonathan found him, and was going to try and freak me out by putting him on my keyboard...
His dad, knowing how afraid I am of spiders, tipped me off.
Lucky for my child!
~
I still screamed and carried on a little for Jonathan's benefit, however, which he took boyish delight in...:).
~
You can't tell, but this thing's probably  2 1/2" long, at least ~ and that's with the legs slightly bent.
For some reason, when it died it didn't curl up like they usually do...
It's just kind of...pliable...
So, after the hysterics were over, Jonathan made it do a little soft-shoe on my mouse-pad, while he sang "Hello, My Baby" in a perfect Michigan J. Frog impersonation...
Wish I had it recorded!
So...it's on my buffet...drying, I guess. For now.
LOL...rarely a dull moment...
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Anne

  3. When I showed my persains I learned about using Dawn and have always used it ever since. I also used Goop mechanics soap when doing a show bath. The funny things we do to make them gorgeous!

    My kittens totally love watching TV and the computer. So funny. Cute post!

  4. Your kitties are so sweet and must be very calm and laid back. Jingles would never let us give her a bath. Yikes! That spider does look big. My 13 year old hates any kinda bug so he would definitely give Jonathan a good show if he tried to startle him with anything like that. :) Happy day to you. Tammy

  6. HI Anne! Oh, the kitties are in their usual beautiful form, aren't they?
    I didn't know you had to give Persians baths. Yikes!
    You've reminded me that I must vacuum the basement so there won't be any surprising Wolf spiders. Creepy!

  7. You've captured some lovely shots of your cats...the spider made me jump though! My Mum is terrified of spiders and as kids we used to place plastic ones all over the place (even above her bed on the wall and in her bed) to scare her. My poor Mum ...how she must have suffered! I just blame my brother.

  8. Beautiful photos of your cats. My cat Milhaus is here with me now with his head on the keypad which is making typing this rather difficult!

  13. Cute kitties. I tried to give our kitty a bath a few times....she was NOT happy.
    That spider picture is pretty cool.

  14. WOW, your brave to give a cat a bath!!
    The spider is huge. Better at your house then mine;), although they don't bother me. Snakes, now that is different...

  15. Your cats as always are so lovely, and so photogenic! My cat has never noticed anything on the computer, but my brother's on the other hand, I think secretly surfs the internet, because he can't seem to stay off or away from it!

    Your son, has found my favorite kind of spider--A dead one! :-)!!!

    Enjoy your weekend!!

  16. Hi Anne,
    the photos made me laughing loudly. Leo's face after you mentioned the bath! Yea, thats exactly what he thought, I can see it in his eyes. So very cute. And they recognizes a lot. Wiski hear cats meowing, dog barking and birds twittering on the TV and reacts immediately. But he was never intested on the computer, Thank God.
    Have a great weekend (and wait with the bath for Leo!)
    Best greetings,
    Johanna

  22. I love your kitties. They are so much company, aren't they? Typical boy with the spider.

  23. What sweet and beautiful babies you have! Oh, man, we call those Wolf spiders, but I don't know if that is their real name. They are scary. Most spiders don't bother me much, but those do.

    Glad you survived the prank okay!

  27. The cats are so cute! Unfortunately we can't have a cat in our house ;(, husbands allergies plus we have a bird. That wouldn't work so well either!

  28. What delightful kitties you have and that Leo just melts my heart. I am "without cat" at the moment and have just not been able to risk my heart again (just yet).

    Spiders are just one micro-notch above snakes in my book. You are very brave.

    Bises,

  29. Anne - your pics are wonderful - they make me smile (well the kitty ones) not too fond of spiders either. Sounds like your son might be a bit ornery or at least likes to torture his mother. (LOL)

  30. Hi Anne, what beautiful cats you have. Our cats (we have 12) don't pay any attention to my computer normally, but one day I was listening to bird sounds on WhatBird? and they were absolutely fascinated. I had a row of them around me and behind the computer, wondering where the birds were! By the way, I got the Cypress Vine seeds yesterday. Thank you so much for sending them!

  31. Ah - another cat lover!! We have to stick together you know. You have some beautiful kiddos there!

  32. Oh I'm so glad I stopped by so I could have a little furry respite before I sign off for the night!

    Your puddy cats are sooo beautiful! I just want to give them purry hugs.
