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.
Are you sure that the cat in the last picture is alive? Looks worryingly like poor Marmaduke, our cat who went missing. Judy found him six months later in her flotation tank, which we've never got around to using. He looked just like that. Very calm but also very stiff.
Ah, yes, Ted being Ted, and Robyn entirely too busy, so it falls to Mimi to take up the slack for the lads.She's entirely too accommodating.
Definitely in the next Pets Roundup.
Richard, I can assure you she is perfectly fine - she's just eaten a huge plate of cat food and gone out for a dump!THat is very true Bryan. While the boy will give me the cat equivalent of the finger, Mimi will play ball. She knows she will get a lump of cheese if she does.Absolutely James!
You have such photogenic cats! Anytime I get mine in front of a camera, they run in fear. What is your secret?
Now you got me, Sir. Especially photo three reminds me of a yet untold episode.And now for something completely different:Did you happen to read "Lily & Hodge & Dr Johnson"?It's published by Silent Books (1991), containing engravings by Yvonne Skargon which are accompanied by quotations of Dr. Johnson.ISBN 1-85183-088-XQuite sure you would not dislike it. :)
Luckily Robyn, Ted and Mimi are unfazed by the camera. Bebe normally legs it though.I hadn't seen that book Sean. I like that Hodge is immortalised by a statue near Dr Johnson's house. I will have to get a copy.. THanks for the tip
And I love you too
A great blog Sebastian Dangerfield has. His Technorati ranking will skyrocket if he-she goes on like this. Maybe you should moderate the blog.Online scum can exist as long as you let them be, as we well know.
Another silly sod. As if the internet hasn't enough already, Red!
Great shots! Happy hunting.
Great idea for the theme ;) Have a great weekend. Mine is up at http://mlizcochico.com
Cute! My cat looks so long when she stretches... and she's long haired, too!
Cats can really stretch O_o. Well, not easy capturing it though My Long Version

Love that LONG. I've been following mine around all week with the same idea, but without success. Normally they stretch themselves all over the place!

Those are wonderful photos of your cats. :) We cats can certainly stretch out nice and long when we choose to! Great choices for this week's Hunt. :)Dragonheart.
Cool photos you got here... Thanks for dropping by mine...
I sympathise. Our cat could have done long, but would he co-operate? Great shots! Have a good weekend (hope there is less rain where you are)
Great idea for the theme! Happy photo hunting, and thanks so much for stopping by :)
I have to admit to favoritism and bias and prejudice: I am totally in love with b&w cats and wish I had a houseful. So your first photo stole my heart. I have grays and I have tigers and long hairs, as you. They are wonderful members of the family but those black and whites. Maybe I'll go get me a couple today . . .
Like the captions as well as the pics! ;b
love the first photo... appears so cuddly. ^-^
now that's "long" on cute!
Too funny. I'm a sucker for kitty pictures. Cute choice for The Hunt.
Haha - great post - you obviously know your cats very well! Leo's good at doing long, but he also refused to pose for any pics. Have a great weekend!
Way to go...I KNEW kitty would do a nice stretch for you for the them this week! lol..My photo is up, please come visit Maggie
Hahaha.My dog does that, too (stretch). Are all these cats yours?Have a great weekend.
