Feline Friday: Attention!

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!

  3. Tuna usually works. The can-opener works. The ruffling of the treat bag works. There are lots of things that work.

  6. Seriously! That is the ONLY time our cat Cashew has got up on the dining table. I had tuna and crackers out, and left to use the washroom, only to return and find him licking the crackers clean!!
