Friday catblogging!

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at September 10, 2004 3:05 PM

Catblogging, which I believe originated with Kevin Drum in his Calpundit days, is a Friday tradition on certain blogs. I have never participated for the obvious reason that I own no cat to stalk with a blowgun digital camera.

However, my new apartment seems to lie on a sort of highway for neighborhood strays; I've seen at least three different cats pass by and occasionally gaze at me plaintively through the glass. Sorry, little dudes! All I have is beer! But I can offer everlasting Internet fame...

This one was standing right up at the screen door, but when I approached with the camera, he* must have decided I looked more intimidating up close, and retreated to the partial concealment bonus of one of my plants. I snapped this photo when he peeked out from behind the leaf.

I couldn't have been too scary, though—he came back last night to pace in front of the screen door.

*I'm using the male pronoun in a generic sense; I didn't actually check. ("I respect its privacy.")


Oh my goodness, that is one cute kitty ^^ *hughughugkitty* Whoops, sorry... but dang, that's an awesome picture, you should take more.

It looks like my Whisper! Even though I know it can't be, since he's on the opposite coast from you. Shall I send you some treats to give them?

Sure! (Unless it would be more efficient for you to recommend treats that I just pick up here, rather than sending them across the country. I haven't the first clue what's appropriate to feed to a stray cat, but I do feel guilty when they turn up at my door and I have nothing.)

Partial concealment, eh?

So you had a 20% miss chance...
