Tabby & Tuxie Tuesday

Dante here! I will start Tuesday's post by showing you some great pictures of my orange tabby self doing two of my favorite activities! The first pic features me playing with my green fish teaser toy. You can see how hard I am concentrating on killing the fishy teaser toy by the way my tongue is all stuck out. Grrrrr!


This next picture features me hanging out in my laundry basket. Mommy actually thinks that I like to help her out with laundry but, in fact, I want the basket for my own! Aren't I cute?



Some of you have asked if I really only have one eye because of my pirate patch in our header. Well, as you may be able to tell in this picture, the truth is I have only about 1.5 eyes - you see the eye opening on my left eye is actually not big enough so I cannot open my eye all the way. Aunt Susan had a kitty eye doctor check me out and she said I can see purrfectally, but I just cannot open my eye and that I was borned this way too. Mommy and Daddy call me "Squint" sometimes because of it but I think it makes me look like one tough pirate kitty!

Oh and since it is Tuxie Tuesday too, here's picture of Captain Jack hanging out on our back porch enjoying a nice fall day.

Dante, I am glad that you can see perfectly, even if one of your eyes doesn't open all the way. The fish teaser toy looks like a lot of fun!

Captain Jack, you look very comfortable in the sun.

First, let me thank you both for welcoming me in my new blog! =^_^=
Dante, I see you have a fun toy! I have one like it. I proclaimed it royal property soon after I moved in with mommy and took it away from my sisters/subjects. It is pink, but I am secure enough in my man-catness to play with pink toys. I like to bask in the sun, too, Captain Jack! My mommy tells me one day I will have a sun porch to call my very own just like you!

Dante, as long as you can get around OK, it doesn't' matter if your eye is squinty. It makes you look more dashing.

Capt. Jack, I see we're the same age. I'm 3 too!

Welcome to the cat blogging community!!! We are so excited that you all have joined us!

I'm a ginger like you Dante. And Josie, one of my sisters is tuxie like Capt. Jack. Maggie, my little sister, looks like she's winking all the time because when she was kitten she had to have one of her eyes removed. Mom always wants to put a pirate patch on her, but dad won't like her.

PS Nice sunny porch spot Jack!

Don't worry about the eye Dante we have a cousin Pierce who is a one eyed kitty and he is just fine! That laundry basket looks like a load of fun. Can we come and play?????

Tiger Lily said...

I think baskets are the most fun! You are both very cute.

Your brother Samwise looks like a very nice woofie. I have 2 woofies who think they are kitties. They try to tell us what to do but we usually ignore them except when we want to play.

Donny and Marie and Casey said...
