Long Drink of Water

Not really, it's an expression.

Okay, again, I need some feedback here. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think all little boy-kitties like to hang their heads down & let the blood rush to their heads. I know Xander does. A lot! He also trusts us to not let him fall. Take this pose for example:
This started out with him in LoML's lap. He gradually oozed over & down until this was accomplished. His front paws were about an inch off the floor. And he stayed like this long enough for me to go in the next room & get the camera (which, again, should be around my neck at all times when I'm in the house!). Incidentally, after I snapped a couple of pix, I cupped his little head in my hand and held him up that way for a bit and he just purred. Funny boy!

Okay, I realize this is a delicate subject to be discussing here...and I may very well lose some of you forever with this post...but it's a topic that must be tackled. It must be talked about openly. We must bring about public awareness. I'm talking about FFoC - Feline Flatulence on Command.

It's a survival tactic to rival that of the octopus' ink. At the ripe old age of 4+ months, Xander has mastered it. It's deployed something like this:  You're a busy tiger-kitten (at least in your mind) with lots of tiger-y (Tigg-ery?) things to do. One of your staff abruptly picks you up and starts smooching on you and making silly baby sounds. You don't want to bite the hand that feeds you at that particular point in time (tho' that's a valid option many other times) so you deploy a silent but effective weapon designed to make your opponent let you go. That's right, feline flatulence. On command.

People, we need to be aware of this. It's a very real phenomenon. At least in our household. I need to know how pervasive this is. Feel free to comment and share your experiences.

And for those who stuck with me to the end of this post, thank you. Here's a cute picture to try to make up for the content of this post.
The culprit...back when he was still little...Is this a yawn, or a laugh???

Yet More Sleeping Poses

So, so busy with wackiness! :::sigh:::

Here's a few more sleeping shots from a couple of weeks ago:
A rare occasion where himself didn't run her off the table, but fell asleep instead!

Okay, not a sleeping shot...Xander chewing on my camera strap while I'm shooting pix! Note Gwyn's tongue out!!!

Exhausted & sleeping with favorite toy--a ball of paper :D

CUTE CON 5...and beyond

Here's a direct quote from an email my SIL sent me (hope she doesn't mind me doing this!) after my last post:
 The level of cuteness on your blog has reached CUTE CON 5. (like Def Con, but cuter)  CUTE CON 5 is the highest level of cuteness that can be withstood by a human being.  After that, body parts start bursting into flames.  And you know, about the time I hit the second or third picture of a sleeping ginger kitty with his paw resting on a voluptuous white divalicious girl kitty, I thought I smelled smoke!
I asked her last night what comes after CUTE CON 5 and she replied "Armageddon." Well, get ready...

Initially Xander was sleeping stretched out in his cube...
..later he moved onto the bed where Wil' was already asleep...

..after rolling over, he started licking her! First, the bottom of her back foot (her head is upside down with her nose tucked into her front paw).. he's licking her ear I think....she was not amused to be awakened like this! Tomorrow there will be video evidence of what transpired be continued..
