Muffin: The male monkey has started calling me “Hell Raiser”. That means I’m big, mean, and tough, right?
Muffin: I’m vicious and ruthless, right?
Muffin: I’m a wily predator on the hunt, right?
Muffin: I can take large prey down and eat them for a midnight snack, right?
Muffin: Well….. I can defend the tree in the middle of my territory from a pack of evil hyenas, right?
Me: I suppose so, yes.
Muffin: Mmpf, grnp, crunch crunch crunch, murft?
Kitty: Just eat your supper, kid.
One day Muffin will have Kitty’s wisdom! lol
I see someone has assembled a new “toy” for the Muffin Man. I worried when I saw him batting at your hands that I’ll never have a kitty to cuddle with on my lap when I come to visit. Will just have to take care of my digits. What say you?
When he stops playing, he hops into my lap, purrs like a freight train, gingerly touches his paw to my cheek, and looks into my eyes. (He’s a shameless charmer.) Then he goes to sleep. Does that answer your question? 🙂
My husband does the same thing Suzanne. Must be a man thing. 😉
It looks like Muffin is getting to be quite a character! I was watching carefully for the claws, during the video! He seemed to be keeping them in…right? He’s such a cutie!
Amazingly, he does keep is claws in. I suspect Kitty taught him that. I’ve heard that a cat won’t play if the other one is too rough, ie clawing and biting. A “I’m not going to play with you if you hurt me” deal. Muffin tells Kitty if she’s getting to rough by squealing at her. When he does this, she stops. If Muffin gets too rough, Kitty stops play and ignores him.
Love the way he purrs, even when he’s playing!
He’s the loudest purring cat I’ve ever been around. We can hear him easily from across the room.
Such a loud purr!!!!!
Love how cats always have to suddenly lick themselves in the middle of something, LOL!
Time out. I have a dirty spot I need to take care of. 🙂
Smiles, smiles, and more smiles. And such patience from Kitty. Well, patience from you, too. Is he one of those who wants you up when he decides to be up?
It’s just pure joy to have these posts pop up. I’ll bet it’s pretty joyful having those warmer temperatures up there, too. We were in the 70s today, and I just now closed the windows. Spring will come!
Yes, he is. When we are ready to go to bed is about the time his little wind-up key is wound tight. He tears around, into everything, top speed, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. But he’s such a joyful presence, we can’t help but love him more and more each day. Kitty of course will always be our favorite little lady, and he is our favorite little boy.
THIS IS SO FUNNY. I HAVE 2 CATS AND WITH ALL THE COLD WEATHER AND SNOW THEY HAVE BEEN AT EACH OTHER FOR DAYS. I FINALLY MADE A MOUNTAIN OUT OF GIFT TISSUE PAPER AND NOW THEY ARE JUMPING AND PLAYING IN IT TOGETHER…..CHEAP WAY TO GET SOME REST!!
It take so little to entertain them doesn’t it?
These two make a cute sister and brother couple. My two are brothers but one out weighs the other by at least five pounds. The smaller one gets all full of himself and tries to beat up the bigger brother but to no avail. Twinkle the bigger of the two will just look at him and take his guff then worse comes to worse will turn him over and sit on him. I tell Sparkle the smaller of the two, that is what you get when you try to live on chicken and deli meat and not eat your nourishing dry food. I don’t think he cares.
Both the fur kids make great company on winter nights or any nights. They enjoy watching the fire in the fire place. Their favorite toy is an empty box. No matter how big or small they love them all. Enjoy your furry friends.
I loved your story about Twinkle and Sparkle and how Twinkle sits on Sparkle. Kitty does a variation of this move on Muffy. She watches him and his nonsense for a while, and then she jumps up and does a belly flop move on top of him. She weighs 10 pounds and he only weighs 5, so it’s very effective and he’s helpless to do anything as she just lays there squishing him.
Just a brief reminder as to who is in charge. They are cute to watch when they do that. Enjoy! The cheapest form of entertainment you can have.
Love your posts. I love my fur babies too, I tried to sleep in this morning because I didn’t have to work but they double teamed me. One Siamese looking straight at my face while sitting on my pillow and the stripped one attacking my feet. It was breakfast time!
oh, and Happy Valentines Day everyone!
