Sunday Photo Blogging: Crazy Cats

As it's been so long since I posted pictures of the cats, I'm sure you were all wondering if they were even still alive. Yes, yes they are. And crazier than ever. (The cat doesn't fall far from the tree, as the saying goes.)


Be careful what you say in my apartment. The trash cans have ears.


Note to self: be careful not to recycle the cat. Strange place for a nap, no?


"Thank you for finally doing the dishes so there's room for me in here."

Oh boy, bathtime! Whenever I turn on the faucets, the cats come running. (Yes, my bathroom is gross and the water is a funny color. Welcome to Washington Heights.)


Rocky likes to sit on the edge of the tub and watch it fill up. He bats at the bubbles when they get close enough. Starbuck is the one who likes to watch it drain.

Every cat I've ever known has been terrified of the bathtub. So of course here's Rocky hanging out, just letting his tail float in the tub. Having a cat sitting over your shoulder in the bathtub takes some getting used to.

Tasha used to hang out in the bathroom with me while I bathed. She liked to lick the water off the side of the tub.

i have to put mamie out in the garage when i do dishes.
she hears the water, and just has to come and play in it.

My cat sleeps in my recycling can, too : ) ...

Her few interactions with the bath have been traditionally anti-water, starting with the first one where she casually, curiously, and unexpectedly(!) lept into what I was doing, which was filling the tub. It was 6 inches deep--she tried to leap back out again before her feet hit the bottom of the tub ; ).

She also disconnected the fiberglass shower-stall liner from the wall, fighting to get out one of the two times (in 6 years) she's gotten so dirty I tried to wash her ...

Love the trash can shot... have you ever thrown something in the can without looking and woken up your kitty?

Strange. Very cute, but strange! :)

Claudio likes to watch over me when I'm in the bath too.

I've never gotten over how vulnerable it feels to be in a bath with all those claws so close...

Andy, you have some absolutely adorable cats.

I used to have a cat who looked a lot like Starbuck. She used to get in the bathtub after I'd showered and lick the bottom of the tub.

Weird.

The water in Portland is CLEAR! So you have that to look forward to, anyway...

Oh, no, my late Jason, an orange tabby, used to LOVE sitting on the side of the tub. He never fell in but I was always cautious. He liked to 'fish' in the water. And one of my current cats absolutely loves to jump on my shoulders post shower; I think he likes the lavender soap I use.
