A Galloping Gourmet.

The feeders spend time in the kitchen, feeding us of course, but also cooking for themselves. I enjoy the cat feeding, obviously; indeed, I spend some considerable time ensuring that this schedule is rigourously maintained.
After that, I like to survey the territory, and plan future missions. Of course, I try not to look suspicious; successfully I feel?:



Despite my nonchalance, Fritz, sitting happily outside the kitchen. looks on. As usual, when he's looking at me when I'm planning, his expression mirrors exasperation, tolerance, annoyance, condescension....resignation?



I've planned, and therefore I act. Jump, pose, jump:, pose: that's my motto (works very well indoors).



I must say, it's somewhat dispiriting that Fritz isn't impressed. I mean, I'm scaling heights, climbing up things, etc, etc -I think he's being a stick in the mud...this is the look I get?



I'll try again, this is one of my "I may pounce at any time" poses...



...but Fritz, well, he's just not impressed with my antics and he's not taking the bait; this is really his look of weary disapproval and he's saying, "please, just have a nap...."



Eventually, Fritz wins. He can sleep? Well, then so can I, with more panache obviously; (eyes open, just to check if Fritz is sleeping with as much style as me)? ....

Ernest, you are a great climber! I do not understand why Fritz is not impressed and awed.

You did a good emergency drill, Ernest. I think Fritz is conserving energy. I'm very energy efficient myself.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Fritz and Scout should start the "can't we just take a nap" club. Scout is such a party pooper too.

Caesar and Princess said...

Silly Fritz, he should be impressed by your acrobatics! We hope you had a good meal before that nap!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Wowy - a bunch of posers!

Forty Paws said...

Tee hee. You guys are hilarious! Obviously, Fritz is a bit older than you Ernest? That might explain his disdain of all your attempts to impress.
