T is For Teamwork (and Tired)

T is For Teamwork (and Tired)

Yo! Word! Whatsup? You like my widdle pink tongue sticking out? Pop was giving me a workout. He rarely plays with me except early in the a.m. before he goes to work. Yesterday my peeps decided to work together to take photos for this week's Pet Photography Challenge. The theme is "A Lower Perspective." TW wanted to get some action shots but couldn't get down low and play with me at the same time. She isn't that nimble or talented like Summer's human.

Enter Pop. Actually, TW ordered him to come over, gave him my elastic string and then sat down on the floor.

TW keeps that string well hidden so when she brings it out, I celebrate. As soon as I saw it, I went crazypants: jumping and stretching while the camera clicked away. I figured you guys would like to see some of the outtakes of myself in action.

T is For Teamwork (and Tired)

Reaching up high. Maybe if I get a little higher, I'll get it. I'm up on two paws.

T is For Teamwork (and Tired)

Wave your paw in da air if you wanna dance! Oh sorry. Wrong storyline. Getting wild and crazy over Mr. String. He gonna get it!

T is For Teamwork (and Tired)

Now you're over here? I gotcha! There's no escaping now. Feel my vicious, ferocious teeth, Mr. String! Did you notice I'm bambidextrous? I can fight with either paw.

T is For Teamwork (and Tired)

You are so my bi-atch! Whadda ya mean I look like I'm flossing, Woman! I'm showing Mr. String who's boss and it ain't him.

T is For Teamwork (and Tired)

See what you did, Woman! He got away! Come back and fight like a string! I hope Mr. String isn't gonna surrender already. He has met his match and has been drubbed like the Packers yesterday defeated.

That sure was fun. In fact it was so much fun I didn't even realize TW stiffed me. I cooperated on the photo shoot but didn't get any treats as payment. What's that all about? "Thank you" doesn't feed the cat.

Anyhoo, the pics didn't come too bad given that I was crazypants and TW was shooting with our little point-and-shoot which doesn't let her change shutter speeds and the like. Oh, and BTW the box I'm standing on is a cat tower that's been in the box well over a year but hasn't been constructed yet. Can you believe it? Im not getting any younger.

About the challenge: We wound up using a real old pic where I'm sitting on the Tree of Pain. All this work for nothing—not even a treat. Have you gotten crazypants lately?

You really did give Mr String a good work out! Probably Dad, too!

Wait, you mean getting to play isn't payment? I need to discuss this with my human.

Great action shots from down low. I think you showed that string who's boss.

Darling, that first picture with your delicate and enchanting little pink tongue, well it distracted me so much I could barely pay attention to anything else. But then I went back and looked again and I find myself so gobsmacked with your beauty and athleticism that I need to go lie down for a bit XOXOXOXO

We love you, CK. You crack us up every time. You definitely showed that stupid string who's boss! And what's up with no treats? You DEFINITELY need a better contract!

Patty Woodland said...

Those are some great actions shots. You showed that string who is BOSS

Brian said...

Way to go CK, you are your own string section!

Tamago said...

Great action shots! That was a good teamwork of TW and Pop :-) But they should definitely pay you with treat for all your work!

Colehaus Cats said...

Whoa! Crazypants crazy! We can tell (see photographic evidence #6) Mr. String was trembling in fear. TREMBLING! Thankfully, it looks like he will live to fight another day. We know you will be ready, but will he be?

Cool that you got to have some fun, CK, while your humans had to do all the work. :)

Mudpie goes crazypants on a daily basis!!! TW is so right...playing with the cat and taking pictures at the same time is pretty much impossible!

Great shots of you showing that string who's boss CK. As for the box containing something FOR YOU which hasn't been "installed" - I do hope it will be SOON that you have a new tree to climb...

Hugs, Angel Sammy

The Menagerie Mom said...

I bet that was a super fun photo shoot, CK. It sure was fun for us to see! And that string better know who's boss after that.

Mariodacat said...

MeOW CK, those are some great shots. Mommy can't get on da floor fur foto shoots. and when she does end up on da floor, she ain't innerested in takin' and fotos. All she wants to do is get up. MOL TW sound purretty nible and spry to us ifin she can still get down there. Sometimes girl, ya' don't give her enuff credit. MOL As fur da tree in a box...What? TW and pops haven't constructed it fur ya' yet? Dat's not right. Not right at all. MOL Big hugs to all.

Luv ya'
