Feline Friday: Curiouser and Curiouser

Feline Friday is hosted by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Steve's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!

Sweetie says it best when he says, "That Link!  He's always up to mischief!  Always trying to get into something!"


Link would probably "resemble that remark," except that he's busy:

Now, I know I smelled something good in here, where is it?

  7. Ha - our cat does the exact same thing. I often wonder if it is because he sees me put the spoon that I use on his soft food treat in there? He licked a clean plate once though - I did let that one stay in the dishwasher for the next cycle.
