Friday the 13th Fotos, Floods and Fires

Friday the 13th Fotos, Floods and Fires
Chosen by Angel Sammy
February 2011

Do you feel lucky on this Friday the 13th? I do cos you're all my furrends and you help me blog every Friday including today. The other day I told you about how TW went out to that meet and greet and stuff. Well, the night got more bizarre after they came home. About 10:40, the fire bells in the common hall started to blare. Pop guessed a pipe had burst somewhere in the complex and he was right. Those alarms kept blaring while FD was in da house. Finally they were reset. About an hour later, they sounded only once but that was enough to scare me and TW wide awake. 

She was finally beginning to doze at about 2 a.m. when there was a LOUD explosion outside. At first we thought something flew off the roof at the construction site next door. Then we realized it might have been a blown transformer although TW's clock and the night light were still one. This morning, Pop axed if the electricity went off during the night cos his alarm never sounded. Guess we got our answer. Score one for the transformer.

Angel Sammy picked a stunner with #1447. This was an extremely long and arduous foto session particularly cos I'm waiting to play on my Tree of Pain. She did get a bunch of great fotos that day while I waited. The sun was shining and the light bounced off me just the right way. That bright day, she took closeups, far away shots and shots from every angle. In the first foto, I'm holding onto a nip carrot with a big feather stem. My dew claws are dug into the side of the perch on the ToP. She has a paw fetish so I'm sure she was drawn to my claws although I moved them by the second foto.

September 2014

There are three types of fotos TW is always trying to capture: me using the scratching post, me using the litter pan and me eating. Before I started to review cat food, she was always afraid if she clicked away while I was eating, I'd stop eating and be afraid to go back to the food. My food station was considered my safe spot where I wasn't bothered by the flashy box. She wanted me to feel safe eating. Occasionally, she'd try to steal a foto from a distance. I can tell I'm eating my FF grilled tuna cos this is my special tuna dish. If she tries to mix things up, I won't eat it. I practically always eat standing up. Do any of you guys stand when you're eating?

HAH! Bet you thought you wouldn't be looking at any more Christmas fotos until this coming December! Last week Travis, Crockett and Angie thought it appropriate to check out the foto that coincided with our new year. I agreed. TW barely managed to get this shot before I came down. I jumped up on the bookshelves to investigate the toys Pop had placed up there. For the most part—and I haven't a clue why—he places all the stuffies on top. What's the fun of knocking a stuffie off cos it ain't gonna break. It's hard to see but what makes our garland special is that it lights up to add to the festive decor in the condo.

A big thank you to Angel Sammy, 3 Chatty Cats and Lone Star Cats for your input in making today's post fun.

I dunno about you, but I can't wait for this winter to be over. I want the heat to shut off although I know come Spring I'll be suffering with my allergies and asthma. If it isn't one thing, it's another. Is there anything you love about the winter?


Summer at said...

It was pouring down rain today, which almost never happens here in southern California! Like, really, really buckets! I was fascinated! It was like somebody had turned on a faucet full blast! Later on, I got a bath (I'm at a cat show this weekend) - that was one downpour that did not impress me.

It sounds like you had a really eventful time. Where we live, the people across the street sometimes have the power go out and we do not, or (more likely) the other way around. So a transformer blowing always makes us wait to see what happens. We hope you used up all of your Friday the 13th mojo already and the day goes smoothly, CK.

Goodness! You live an exciting life, CK! have to say I couldn't get past the first pic without a little swoon!! Angel Sammy done got taste!! ❤️❤️❤️


Here in Florida we do like winter because it gives us a break from the humidity and heat. Those were great fotos CK!!!

Colehaus Cats said...

Well, we bet that night was "exciting." NOT! About your Dad putting unbreakables on the top shelf of that awesome collection, he knows he's doing it wrong, right? MOL!

Shoko Neilson said...

An eventful evening CK. The pictures were super. I eat sitting down usually. Kali eats laying down, if mom leaves her be. She makes a dang mess but she's happy.

We love winter because it's cuddle and snuggle weather...we're sappy like that :) And I pick on Mudpie all the time because she eats standing up! (Usually when she's less than thrilled with the offerings and plans to make a quick getaway...if she really likes something she'll sit down.)

It was below zero again here this morning. That is just a little bit cold.

My goodness, you had an alarming night!
It's interesting that you have a special dish for tuna.
I like winter because the heater is on and I lay on the vents.

Y, Dat furst foto CK is just pawsum. We say dat's a foto fur use anytime. As fur winter, we don't like it. Da only thing good 'bout it is da 'lectric blanky and all da extra snuggles with mommy. But we could do dat anytime. MOL Mommy says to tell TW fank you. And dat she had no idea dat's what they meant by cleanin'!!! She ain't fur dat at all. Big ouchie fur sure. MOL Hope things have quieted down 'round your place. Big hugs to all.

Luv ya'

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Bear Cat usually loafs it while he eats ... but occasionally, he'll stand up if he's eating from his food bowl and the kibble level is a little low. I've never seen him stand and eat off a plate ... so maybe it's something about the bowl? You are beautiful, CK ... and trouble ... but that's a different story entirely!

Kitties Blue said...

Anything we love about the winter...NO! Sammy totally selected a winner of a photo. You are definitely stunning in that one. Cooper Murphy asked us to pick a number for him: #1717. Hope you haven't shown it yet. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

Three Chatty Cats said...

Angel Sammy did a great job picking that photo. You're quite stunning. And nope, none of my cats really stand while they eat. I guess you're unique like that, CK.

meowmeowmans said...

Holy Cat, CK. That was a crazy night you had after TW got back from the meet and greet! We love all the fotos that got chosen -- that one of you on the cabinet amidst all the decorations is awesome. Yes, we're ready for winter to be over, too. Hugs!
