Friday Frolicking

Friday Frolicking

It's Friday and I'm inviting you to "pet my tummy." Heh heh. At your own risk, of course. Much to TW's dismay, I've yet to become a "lap cat" or even a snuggler. But if you visit and read my Flashback Friday Foto Frenzy, you can come in closer to the screen and pet away.

This is a stunning one cos I'm looking so playful. I'll bet TW was smitten with the position of my paws and feet. TW had just learned about getting down to my level to take fotos. She went much further and actually put the camera on the floor. There's no shakiness or anything like there is when she's holding it so it's crystal clear. She might also have been playing around with the camera settings cos there's 16 pics with some darker and some lighter. That pink thing is a straw that I was about to reach for.

The next two fotos were one-offs. TW loves to capture me peeking around the ultimate scratching post. You can see the Tunnel of Pain and Suffering in the foreground. Rumor is the TofP&S isn't long for the condo. I might be finding a new one under the Christmas tree but that's between you and me. She did a great job focusing on me but a poor job with lighting. Was I about to run through the tunnel, use the scratcher or something else? I'll never tell.

This foto shows that TW wasn't much better with the analog camera then she is with the point and shoot unless she was trying to focus on the counter/pass-along. Early in 2007, we had the kitchen redone with new counters and cabinets. Prior to that, I used to enjoy sitting on the countertop until it got all crapped up used as a pantry. If TW had taken this foto today, all you'd see is the microwave instead of a stunning cat.

Shameless plug: Aunt Pauline's latest book The Dark Days features several cats who may or may not wind up to be heroes. It's on sale this week on Amazon too.

That's all the Foto Frenzy fun for this week. I wish I had more history on the fotos but one-offs are hard since they don't jog the memory like a long foto shoot. I have to try to get into TW's head and that ain't pretty; in fact, I fear I've been traumatized.

How are you spending the first weekend in December?

You look like you are enjoying yourself in these photos, CK! Touch your tummy indeed - MOL!

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Great photos and Mum wants to touch your tummy. I won't let her of course. She is only allowed to rub mine!

Well you are a stunning cat, so does it really matter if you aren't a lap cat or a smuggler? we think not.

Yin, the sweetest and most loving of cats has an evil twin at the vets. The evil twin did not to wish to get back in the carrier to come home and she.....................scratched Mommy. MOL the vet tech had to bandage Mommy up.

Miss CK.
Your belly up with a cute face, my mom asks " Is that a trap ? " ( MOL... she doesn't have a good experience with me )

Brian said...

Oh CK, you're always so darn stunning!

Three Chatty Cats said...

I would love to pet your tummy but don't want to lose my hand. So I will just observe your beauty from afar.

Tamago said...

Oh my goodness, the top foto made me squee! I would go pet your tummy even if I know the consequence :-)

Those are pawsum fotos CK. Ifin mommy took such great unedited fotos, we'd be thrilled. MOL Let's just say her skills are really sub par. Anyways, great fotos. We're gonna be snugglin' as it's gonna be cold and stormy this weekend. Big hugs to all. By da way, mommy says she'd have to risk it, cuz dat furst pose is one of those tummy sxhnozz times mommy just can;t resist.

*shudders* You tried to get into TW's head??? I wouldn't go near the Staff's if you paid me in nip and noms!! Great pics, though! xxx

Colehaus Cats said...

OMC, Straws! A good toy for you, too? Getting into human's head isn't pretty at all, is it.... we're sure it's confusing and filled with all sorts of things NOT RELATED TO US CATS. What's up with that? We'll have our Mom check out your shameless plug!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

You look so sweet and kittenish in your first photo. A look of innocence luring an unsuspecting hand to it's doom.

Sounds like you're getting something pretty exciting for Christmas! I'll probably be home alone this weekend while Mommy goes Christmas shopping :( Wanna come over? --Mudpie

I like all these photos of you. Thanks for letting us know about your Auntie's book.

The Island Cats said...

We like that first pic of you, CK. It shows your playful side. We're spending the weekend staying warm since it's suppose to get colder here this weekend.

Shoko Neilson said...

Mol Love the photos CK. I want to rub your tummy and then run like the wind.


Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

That's okay that you're not a snuggler, C.K. You have your own way of showing T.W. that you love her. I love your pictures - especially the first one ... you truly are exquisitely gorgeous!

meowmeowmans said...

Awesome pictures, CK! We especially love that first one, but we know better than to try to pet your belly. :)

well, we spent the first weekend in December with leaky eyes over the loss of our pals Sammy and Easy. Tough way to start the month for sure. But your photos always make us smile BFGF. You are the most gorgeous ladycat
