Well the feline memes were starting to pile up so let’s titillate our cat lovers out there. For Miss Maude and all the other cats who I know read this: we are laughing with you because we know better than to laugh at you.

It has been mentioned that the feline population has been neglected on the past few Mondays. So to make up for it here is a whole box full – feel free to use it when its empty!

Did anyone else ever feel sorry for poor Tom?

What you expect sympathy from a feline? You made the decision buddy, you live with it.

I guess this is our Pun for the day?

No! No! It’s just the neighbour’s cat – he wanders in sometimes! Shoo! Shoo!

Well I guess I’m part cat then.

And you know there is always a biblical reference.

I’m not sure how different this is from Nicky and Nora some days.

And this one is for Miss Maud and Joan.

And not being a cat owner I can’t say how true this is but if what I have witnessed in the homes of friends with cats I’ll trust it.

Well you know by now, faithful reader, that if last week was canine this week will be feline. Equality for all say I! And today is dedicated to one special feline – Happy Birthday Maud!

So let’s set the mood for the day: La Chat c’est moi!

And while we’re on a historical bent: Vive la revolution!

From royalty to deity:

Why this one? Because it’s cute that’s why!

You know how their antics amuse them? Well ….

La Chat s’amuse!

Not sure why the hammer and sickle as it’s not just propaganda – it’s reality.

Looking towards the oncoming week??

True to my word I’m starting the week with special attention to our feline friends.

Yes I know we are in the Octave of the Epiphany but I didn’t want to save this one til next Christmastide.

When we went on our first ocean cruise I noticed that the bow of the ship was strictly verboten. When I asked a friendly crew member they explained that there were too many Kate and Leonardo wannabees. You can’t fix stupid but apparently it drowns easily.

I’ve always said: Never trust a tom cat!

The mighty may have fallen but felines remain.

I’ve never understand how cats (and dogs) can sleep in the most uncomfortable positions. Perhaps Laurent is right there is a “sleep of the innocent”.

I’m not sure I’d feel comfortable drinking tea from this pot.

Should this not be “Inaction Figure”?

This pretty much applies to us all.

Well actually according to the OED and Scrabble rules it is, as is “meow”.

This one is not a funny just a beautiful example of feline line and form as an Art Deco lamp.

The word for January 17th is:
Grrr /ɡər/: [exclamation]
Used to express anger, frustration or annoyance.
Mid 19th century onompatopoeic word derived from the growling of an animal.
Well so much for cats being that smart!
