Cat Blob

(Courtesy Diablo's mom, "blob" has now replaced "bolg" as the Misspell Of Choice -- sorry, J-Haff, "bolg" had a good run.)

After Internet Sensation (TM) Larry aka "Douchepacker" went to live with Diablo's folks (sniff -- I miss you, my little estranged son. Oh, you too, Ernie, I suppose.) I despaired that I would never again have cats who would cause the kind of internet rage that Larry did.

And then Trixi came into my life, and brought with her these two lovelies:



On the left there is Bayswater, aka "Flyswatter," aka "'Swatter," aka "Fish Boy." I call him Fish Boy because his crazy cheek tufts make him look like a half man/half fish creature who perhaps crawled up from his undersea domed city to explore the world of humans. To this end, I invented a voice for him that sounds like he's talking through a layer of bubbles, with which I speak for him thus:

"Your air-breathing ways confuse me, human! What is this 'love' you speak of?"

On the right is Pyewacket, aka "'Swacket." All that can be said about her is that she's very pretty. And also very meticulous, given that she spends TWO HOURS A NIGHT cleaning up the litter box to her exacting standards. Also, she runs around crazily at 3 AM and says this: "Row-wow-wow-wow-wow." Also, when there is no food in the dish, she coordinates with Fish Boy to create a plan to annoy us from 5 AM until we wake up whereby the two trade off jumping on Trix' back and just STANDING THERE AND STARING for ten minutes until one of us gets pissed off and swats them away.

Hopefully one of them will create a STAGGERINGLY HUGE INTERNET SENSATION THAT YOU CANNOT ESCAPE FROM like Larry did. Oh, those halcyon days.

The Cat Blob is making me giggle to the point where my office mate thinks I'm mad-crazy.

I Love Pye's 3 a.m. Freak Outs! And don't forget her voice, which has a childish Cindy Bradyesque quality to it 'He breaksss my toyssss. Why doessss he schtep on my toysss an breaksss dem?!?'

.....which is something I do CONSTANTLY, accidentally stumble around breaking poor Pyewacket's little plastic toys.

That is the most awesome cat-tribute. Ian speaks to our kitty Bettie in a special way, to. He also calls her evil and we seak of getting her adopted. She's another of those cats who wakes me in the early hours- not staring- but chewing my HAIR. The noise of it wakes me. She once knawed a chunk of hair OFF and I thought I'd have to get some Rod Stewart-like layers put in.

Of course that was meant to be TOO not TO.

It's okay, Jonny. Bolg had pretty much run it's course. Blob it is!

Cute cats, btw.

I would also like to put forth my nicknames for the kitties - Baysil and Pyepul. "Pye-pye" too. It's no "Specktacular," but what can you do.

You always have the best SO cats!

MissTrixi said...

Awwww...A nice nod to Speck aka Specktacular there BrashLion!

He was everyone's Zen kitty that left us on January 2nd. Didn't quite make it to Cali, but if he had the Blob would have been all the sweeter with him in it. Now he's giving headbutts in Kitty Heaven, keeping company with Buddha Cat.
