Either Napping or Prepping for a Monorail Cat Tryout

I’m guessing napping, myself.

  1. What about hugging? It looks like the cat is holding on saying, “You aren’t going to take away my couch.” But, that’s just me.

  2. Oh. My. God. A white couch? With Cats? Poor Krissy! Great picture, though. My cat’s favorite spot is monorailed behing my head on my office chair

  3. Yeah, but the couch is in my office and it’s already been clawed to hell, so a little cat fur isn’t going to do much damage at this point.

  4. I don’t remember seeing the couch in your previous office pictures. Is it what you stand on to take the pictures?

    In which case, a bit o’cat hair isn’t going to make much difference.

  5. I’m guessing napping, until big-noisy-thing-with-flashbulb came along and interrupted. I can just see the “get out!” look in those eyes. But if cats are going to lie around looking cute, they just have to live with the consequences. Nice picture.

  6. No no, your cat is cognizant of the emerging oil and motor-fuel crisis, and is training for the soon-to-be sorely-needed mass transit expansion!

    What a fine, noble creature. You should be proud!

    It’s been in a few office pictures but I am indeed usually pointing the camera in the other direction.


    Actually I try not to use the flash with the d70s. It’s a really strong flash and tends to over expose things. Also, you get red eye. Her she’s noting the shutter click.

  8. O Great Scalzi, this is such a heartstopping picture of Her Glorious Perfection that our hearts have stopped.

    The Executive Committee of The Official Ghlaghghee Fan Club is so pleased with you that we have decided – without submitting it to a vote of the full membership – to award you for this superb depiction of Her another (and partially retroactive and overlapping)

    (valid for the entire month of May 2008)

    We are confident the entire membership will confirm our decision.

  9. Hmm. If the cat were male I would suggest checking if your couch were in estrus.

  10. Ulrika:

    True. The last thing we need is a litter of ottomans running around the house.

  11. I’d say she was more like stretching out the limbs and tendons to make those wicked scissor kicks found in the higher levels of cat-fu.

  12. The Look…
    you disturbed me and now you get to scratch me…


    My legs are just the right length to fit AROUND your thigh..
