The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
It seems someone has given the poor cat a jolt of ststic electricity. I bet if you brushed Robyn you could probably light your flat for an hour.
Surprisingly we get little static of the big fella. With him though we could brush him for an hour and he'd still look like a scruff!
How charming that he has a name as posh as Robyn! So cute
Ah freelance, Robyn is named after our favourite musician, Robyn Hitchcock (Ted is named for Father Ted!)
"mildly annoyed" . . . . he looks fuming!
99.9% of the time he is a gentle and placid cat. It is rare for him to get the arse!
Robyn has a "tigerish" look about him, possibly because of the shape of his eyes and mouth.
It also helps that he is a pretty big fellow too! In reality he is rather timid around strangers but when he gets to know you he's a big gentle lump!
"Mildly" annoyed? Well, OK, jams, you have given us pictures of Robyn without the qualifying adverb, and I agree that Robyn can look even fiercer than this. But his expression in this pic will do the job, don't you think!
Nothing a little catnip can't fix
Oh he certainly can Steve. Usually he relies on his quiet authority to remind the others that he is the top cat!Sadly he doesn't react to it. Ted on teh other hand turns into a junkie!
