Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

This is what I often see when I’m in the garden and I look UP . . .

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime

I’ve been rather quiet lately, I know . . . It’s just been too hot here to do much, and my brain doesn’t work well in this weather. I suppose I could write posts in the evenings when it’s cooler, but then there is dinnertime and playtime  . . . and then sleep-time. Life is just so busy then!

This week’s photo challenge is all about lunchtime. I don’t get lunch, as such. I have to wait until dinner time to get a decent meal. But Lisa gives me some “puppy cookies” (see note at bottom of post) as she calls them, to tide me over until then. I’m pretty good at rationing them out throughout the day, and only eating one when I really need a snack. Often I take a dog biscuit with me when I go and take a nap, just in case I wake up mid-nap with a snack attack.

Willie and I both think that “puppy cookies” is a silly name for them. I’m NOT a puppy any longer, but Lisa often calls me her “Little Pup”. When is she going to realise that I’m a big dog now? Well, maybe not big, but all grown up.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the details

This week’s photo challenge is: Lost in the details. So I asked Lisa to take some close-up photos of me. Basically, an eye, ear and nose sequence, so you could see what three of my sensory organs look like up close.

We tried to get the Neurotic Cat to participate in the challenge, but she ran away every time the camera got too close.

My eyes are really my best feature . . . They say your soul is reflected in your eyes, but I can only see the blinds etc reflected in them. 😉

This funny looking thing is one of my ears. Ears are very useful – I can hear much better than my humans. My ears look a little wet in the photo. That’s because I had just had a bath. I smell very good now.

My nose . . . I can smell even better than the Neurotic Cat. You could say I’m like a shark on dry land. The area just below my nose and around my mouth (with all the little whiskers) is very sensitive and I feel things with it.

The Daily Show

Every day I watch in amazement as the Neurotic Cat contorts herself while she’s conducting her daily cleaning routine. All that licking does seem to be a bit OCD to me. The licking carries on for several minutes, and then just when you think it’s stopped . . . it starts all over again. But I have to say I’m impressed – by the ability of Neurotic Cat to contort herself, not the licking so much.

I sometimes offer to help her clean her tummy, but she usually “shows me the paw”. So I have to content myself with just watching.

Neurotic Cat has this long, skinny body which she can twist far enough around, so that she can lick her spine quite comfortably. Comfortably for her, that is. Watching it can be a bit alarming! I keep thinking she’ll hurt herself.

This is really better than watching television. Can your cat do this too?
