Cats Behaving Badly


Ok, it’s a bit of an exaggeration.  They aren’t doing really bad stuff, but I have pictures to take and they stubbornly being unphotogenic.

Julius did do this number yesterday, though.  That moulding he is standing on is the top of the bathroom door.  And he’s doing it just to annoy me, too.


I don’t mind Gus sitting on the end table that much.  He does have a bad habit of ‘enlarging’ with time and nudging other items on the table to the floor.

Calla has decided to sit low under this little table, where it is tough to get a shot.  I tossed the little ball to get a rise out of her, but no dice.

    Gus proves the old adage about cats being liquid — they ooze.

    Julie quite clearly has the “nyah nyah, can’t stop me, ha ha” look on his face.

  2. Ok, I’m sorry but that picture of Julius is AWESOME! Far far far too cool and precious! Why did it annoy you so? Did he tap your shoulder when you were coming and going? I would have to just giggle at him, and I am!
    Ah, Gus. Enlarging to fit fully in his space… so typically cat!
    Why does Calla’s face make me think she’s saying “I vant to be alone”??

      When Julie was a tiny kitten, on his very first day here he trotted to the railing above that spot and fell all the way down to the tile below.

      Every so often he decides to walk the top of the railing, or do something else risky, and he makes sure I see him by meowing really loud until I watch. He did the same thing before that shot,

      Perhaps I’m being over protective, but on the other hand I also saw him roll down a couple steps by accident the other day when he was wriggling for me, so I don’t see his judgement about his balance as 100 percent reliable.

    I love that shot of Julie!

    Gus: “Those things were better off on the floor, anyway. I doing you a favor.”

    Have they been talking to my Sylvia? She does the cutest things until I snag the camera and then it is game over! LOL! Still I do manage to catch her now and again!
