Best of Friends

...with so many shared interests: bird, squirrel and rabbit watching, eating (clearly!), meow-whining for more food, waiting on the back steps for me to come home, more eating, more meow-whining, more waiting, carrying things up from the basement, attacking moths, carrying around ballpoint pens, batting balls back and forth, stalking each other, perching on the arm of the chair, inhaling catnip, cuddling on the couch, general grooming, lying on my feet, still more eating. What a life!

Your cats are enormous!

strem said...

Yes, they are. The left one, Simon, is especially so. When he was given to me, he weighed 23 pounds. Since then, he's lost 2. I keep feeding him less and less, but he's not losing weight. So, I've been playing with them and trying to get both of them to move around more and more. Hopefully, that will work.

Sounds like the life to me.

Imagine: a kitty excerise regiment. One and two and three and four, nose to the floor! and stretch!
Protien, protein,protein!

(it makes me laugh to think about)

strem said...

Yes, that would be hilarious. If only I could make them do it! Instead, they just chase feathers and strings...and me everywhere I go.

Here is a funny for you!

After a fulfilling life with the now dead prince, she happily sits upon her rocking chair, watching the world go by from her front porch, with a cat named Bob for companionship.

One sunny afternoon out of nowhere, appeared the fairy godmother. Cinderella said, "Fairy Godmother, what are YOU doing here after all these years"?

The fairy godmother replied, "Cinderella, you have lived an exemplary life since I last saw you. Is there anything for which your heart still
yearns? I will grant thee three wishes."

Cinderella was taken aback, overjoyed, and after some thoughtful consideration, she whispered, "The prince was wonderful, but not much of
an investor. I'm living hand to mouth on my disability checks, and I wish I were wealthy to carry me through these difficult times."

Instantly her rocking chair turned into solid gold. Cinderella said,
"Oh, THANK you, Fairy Godmother!"

The fairy godmother replied, "It is the least that I can do, Cinderella. What do you want for your second wish?"

Cinderella looked down at her frail body, and said, "I wish I were young and full of the beauty and youth I once had."

At once, her wish became reality, and her beautiful young visage
returned. And then the fairy godmother spoke once more: "You
have one more wish; my fair Cinderella. What shall it be?"

Cinderella looked over to the frightened cat sitting in the corner and said, shyly, "I wish for you to transform my old cat, Bob into a kind and handsome young man." Fairy GodMother smiled a knowing smile. And magically, Bob was suddenly transformed into a handsome and complete gentleman, indeed!

Fairy Godmother winked at Cinderella and said, "Enjoy your new life. You have earned it." With a blazing shock of bright blue electricity, Fairy
Godmother was gone as suddenly as she had appeared.

For a few eerie moments, Bob and Cinderella just looked at each other. Cinderella sat, breathless, gazing at the most beautiful, stunningly perfect man she had ever seen. Bob walked over to Cinderella, who sat transfixed in her rocking chair, and held her close in his young muscular arms.

Bob leaned in close, blowing her golden hair with his warm breath and whispered, "I bet you're sorry NOW you had me neutered!"
