Butter’s cameo appearance

December 24, 2008


Hello. I can’t say I’m thrilled to be in this silly red hat. Can’t believe J bought it for S and she actually wore it all evening.

Anyway, Arthur is meant to be the one with the hat and saying Merry Christmas to all. But his fur is too short for the clip to hold. Today is also not a good day to put a pointy hat on him because he was thoroughly frustrated by a laser point he was chasing. He emitted this irritated tsktsktsk chatter.

So yes, it’s me. Do I look grumpy? I guess I do. But really, I do wish all of you a Merry Christmas, and a blessed New Year!

The importance of being cute

December 24, 2008

Today I overhead S comment: “Arthur will not be able to survive half a day on the streets because he lacks the necessary life skills and instincts”. Needless to say, I was (and still am) highly indignant.

Even if you agree with her (which you shouldn’t) that I am not a good hunter and cannot defend my territory, the point is, I don’t have to fight for survival. The trick, guys, is to be cute. That way, I can just charm the socks off humans and trot home with them.

Why do you think I got adopted instead of the many other kittens available at the SPCA? Well in case any of you require more proof of how absolutely crucial it is to be cute, let me show you. I can even do cute in my sleep.
