  1. (((insert joke I am not funny enough to think of about an invisible comment)))

  2. sweet baby. just want to pick her up and hold her for a moment.

  3. That is absolutely correct. So precious.

    Have a purrfect Wordless Wednesday. ☺

  4. smart kitty- undercover and close to a bite to eat! BIg hugs to you!

  5. I get such a kick out of our furkids and their concept of being invisible. Twiggy often sneaks under our bed to wait for lights out and cuddle time, with her long fluffy tail hanging out, and then she is surprised when we reach down and collect her, like "How did you know I was in here?" :-) For as much mischief as they can get into in full sight, I'd hate to think what havoc they could create if we truly couldn't see them at all, just cupboard doors popping open, trash cans tipping over and food slipping off our plates!! :-)

  6. I can't see you, but you are adorable.

  7. I remember hurricane Ivan. Why do cats like sit on chairs that are pushed under the table?

  8. Cats are naturally mysteries, wrapped in riddles, hiding in the shadows. ;)

  9. Cats always think they're hiding even when most of them is visible.
    I'm not going to tell them and be the one who spoils it ;)

  10. LOL - our cat would totally try this trick! He likes to hide in places and then leap out at you when you walk by. It's pretty much the only interaction he has with us -- just scaring the crap out of everyone in the dark. Cats - not to be trusted!! LOL


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
