Friday Cat Blogging ? 15 August 2003

FRIDAY CAT BLOGGING….On the left, we see Inkblot guarding the house against intruders. What a good cat! But who is he guarding us against?

Moments later it all becomes clear: we are keeping a sharp eye out for tabby cats. Luckily, around here anyway, tabby cats know exactly how much attention to pay to this kind of thing.

(Make no mistake: Inkblot is big and dumb, but petite little Jasmine is the alpha feline around here. Inkblot occasionally goes nuts and starts chasing her around the house, but he never lays a paw on her. The opposite, however, is not true. Jamine is one cat who can take care of herself.)
