A New Roost for King Cat

A new try with the colors. Any thoughts?

We're putting out some things in preparation for the big sale in a couple of weeks. Firestar was happy about us clearing off Son's old computer desk. He likes to sit up high.

Okay. Snap your picture. See if I care.
Now are you doing?

I think Firestar's going to be a bit torked when some of our things go away. He's going to have fewer things to jump on. What does he care about the problem of moving things? He doesn't have to do it.

He's such a gorgeous cat.

I like the blue background. I must admit I always prefer white background to text as it's easier for me to read but I'm happier now the yellow has gone.

Bevie said...

He is. Both in appearance and personality. Didn't mean to fall in love with him, but I did.

Yeah, that other color was kind of sickening. Way too much. Blue is such a softer color. I can lighten it up if you think that would be better?

I like the blue. Lighter might be a bit better and easier to read. I would prefer a little border between the text and the darker blue. As I get older, my eyesight gets worse. Makes me a lot pickier about what it all looks like. Heck, I used to read in the dark when I was young.

Fred loves open windows. They don't disappear, but the windows are usually closed.

I would like a border, too. Originally, the blog was one color and it wasn't an issue. Trying to figure out how to indent the text.

With spring here, Firestar gets wild with the windows open. It's like he can't contain himself.

Gosh I don't even remember the color before! At least it isn't a black background. I find that super hard for reading text
Nice of Firestar to get his paws prints and furr on the newly cleaned desk

Bevie said...

We're selling it, so it doesn't really matter.

Yes. With my monitor, black backgrounds are a nightmare.

Just a love song.

“She’s got tuna. I know she’s got tuna.”

“Shut up, Sethra. Stay on mission.”

“What’s the mission? I thought the mission was to get tuna.”

“No, you stupid fluffbrain—it’s to escape and become outdoor cats, walking by ourselves, on our wild lone, waving our tails.”

“Oh, yeah? And isn’t it you, my dear stripy sister Aliera, who keeps pushing the FEED button on the printer and waiting for tuna to come out?”

“That was when I was much younger. Anyway, she’s at the computer—yes, eating tuna casserole—so we can go into the bedroom and see if we can knock the window screen out.”
“You do it, Aliera. I’d rather mess with her stuff.”

“Will you GET OVER that fixation on her wristwatch?”

“I like the feel of the Velcro on my paws. Hey! That reminds me. We’ve been declawed. How are we going to survive as outdoor cats?”

“New plan coming up….”

“What’s the big deal about being outside cats? Even StalkerCat, who used to hang around and chat us up, is a house cat now and loving it. We’ve got it made—food, petting, toys, valet service for the litter box, and we get to sleep on her bed twenty hours a day. And we can stick our noses up to the window and smell anything interesting going on outside. Why ruin a perfect situation?”

“Sethra, have you no sense of adventure? No curiosity? No cattitude? We were meant to live wild and free, to stalk and slay our prey, to be mistresses of the night!”

“Look, we’re cats. We were meant to rule the world, but that doesn’t mean we have to WORK at it. You can if you want, but I don’t need to. After all, I’M beautiful!

“Did I mention she’s got tuna?”

At 8, you'd think Mikey would understand that he's a carnivore. But, no, he's rather fond of the shrubbery! At 20+ pounds, the veggie-enhanced diet is likely mitigated by a love for long naps on a warm comforter, wet cat food, begging at the table, and a nice lap to drape himself upon in the evening. And he drools when he's happy, which may or may not mean there's a Siamese ancestor lurking in the old dna.

What? Green teeth attract mice!

Firestar is a tough cat. He has to be, living in Minnesota. He takes care of his family: wife, husband and their son. This was recently proven by his daring capture of yet another mouse in the house. Foolish rodents. They never learn. When not engaged in derring do, Firestar naps, looks out the window and sleeps. Firestar was born in April of 2006.
