Frustrated on Friday

Hi kitties. I would like to share a story with you. I know that Mom and Dad love Mattingly and I very much, but sometimes I don't think we get all the respect we deserve. I'm going to give you an example below.

One morning I was sleeping peacefully on the bed:

This is a very comfortable sleeping position and I sleep like this a lot. But I should know better... because it is very easy to get disturbed in this situation. And sure enough, Dad saw me, and even though he was getting ready for work, went and got the camera.

The flash and the camera noise bothered me so I covered my eyes and asked him to leave me alone. But he couldn't help himself and had to rub my tummy. So I was awake and irritated, as you can see in the picture below.
Dad finally left me alone and went off to get ready for work and I went back to sleep, but before I knew it, he was back in the bedroom to put on his socks. And where did he sit? But almost right on top of me!!!I glared really hard into his back to see if he would get the hint and move, but he didn't right away.Eventually he did leave and go to work... but by that point I had given up on the bed and was off to the living room somewhere. Does this ever happen to you? The beans can have the bed at night, but during the day it belongs to the kitties. When will they learn? I wish I could say this was the first time it happened, but things like this happen all the time. I suppose it's a small price to pay for the food, and shelter, and toys, and all the love we get. But still... we are cats... we deserve respect!

Here are some leftover shots from the photoshoot I showed yesterday. They are appropriate for Toesday!

Photo Shoot

So I'm certainly not on par with such accomplished cat models as Daisy and Skeezix, but I was inspired to do a bit of modeling of my own after our TV seemed to run old episodes of America's Next Top Model almost continuously this past weekend. For some reason, my Mom is hiding her head in shame. Anyway, since we are so relieved to hear the good news about Lilly Lu, Mu Shue and Iris, I thought I would step out of my comfort zone a bit and show you how I let loose on the bed and let mom do a photo shoot. Enjoy!

Does this still qualify for Mancat Monday? I'm not so sure.

Praying so hard

We had a fun post to put up tonight, but we aren't in the mood anymore after hearing about the News with MuShue, Lilly Lu, Iris, and their Momma. We've decided to just spend our energy on extra purrs and prayers for them. We can't even imagine what their Momma is feeling tonight, but we hope she can sense all the love and support.

Not very lady-like

Here I am trying to look more refined and lady-like in my photos and Mom went and took a picture of my behind!

That's not very polite at all. I'm appalled. Really.

A Little Goofy on Monday

I've been working on trying to look regal and pretty in my photos, the way a real ladycat should... but sometimes I just can't help being goofy.
