Secret Meetings and Glorified Squares of Cardboard

I think I busted up a secret meeting yesterday. I walked into the kitchen to find Phoebe and Cosmo looking at each other, obviously engaged in some sort of clandestine activity. When they saw me, they pretended like they were never communicating. They are bad liars.

Also, I just want to point out how Phoebe claimed the box which barely has sides to it. It's more like a glorified square of cardboard. She doesn't care ... it's a box. Sort of.

My New Accountant Uses a Litter Box

I've hired an accountant. Her name is Phoebe and she takes lots of breaks. I figured since she likes to walk across keyboards, keypads, and buttons of any kind, she'd jump at the chance of having her very own calculator. Plus, no matter what she does, she'll probably be better at math than I am.

My name is Angie and I have a cat for an accountant.

Fanned Toes? I'm a Fan

I recently caught Cosmo sunning himself by a window. And then he did that thing that drives me absolutely crazy: He stretched his legs and fanned those little toes. And the fans stayed like that for quite a while. Of course I had to poke a finger between those toesies. I'm a huge fan of those fans. I love fans.

Dream Homes ... Made of Butter

Phoebe thought she was going to score some butter when my son snapped this pic. A good sniff was all she managed to grab. I think my cats would like a little house made out of butter. Hell, I think I would like a house made out of butter. A big one.

She Might Miss a Cracker

Last night I was addressing envelopes at the kitchen counter and had the certain feeling someone was staring at me. I turned around and, sure enough, that someone was Phoebe. She was so tired, but wouldn't go to sleep. She might miss watching me do something, you know. Like something that's relevant to her interests. Like eating a cracker or taking the cap off my pen.

What Goes on Behind the Laptop

Sometimes when I'm working, Phoebe sneaks behind my laptop and bats things around, and who knows what else. The other day I decided to turn the camera on her to see what in the world she was doing. This is the look she gave me. Message received.

Toddler Cat Flashback

Another flashback with my sweet Cosmo!

Cosmo occasionally likes to sit in my lap, like a toddler. He especially enjoys this position when I'm doing my "business" in the bathroom. Other times, he'll sit for awhile when I'm just chilling on the sofa.

Here's my view of him sitting toddler-style. Of course, it's always a treat to see his fuzzy little "panties."

FYI: I am not sitting on the toilet.

Stinkeye Rewind

Taking the weekend off, so here's an old stinkeye post for ya!

Cosmo likes to be held like this -- really, believe me. In fact, he looked totally adorable and happy right before the shutter snapped. I just managed to catch him at the exact point his mood shifted. Of course it did ... because I wanted a "Happy Cosmo" pic.

This, my friends, is a fine example of the feline stink-eye.

My Cat Likes to Squeeze

Cats find that one little sun puddle, and then squeeze themselves inside it best they can. I've found my cats lying on top of squares of sun about the size of Post-it notes. They don't care -- they just want some part of their body to feel tropical ... or in the case of a black cat, like the surface of the sun.

The Craft of Biscuit-Making

After breakfast and dinner, Cosmo retires to the pink cat bed and proceeds to make some very serious biscuits. Last night Phoebe had already claimed the bed, so she got to be witness to his craft.
