Sekhmet, you fucker.

(Good news! I'm starting to think in blog posts!)

This is the couch we owned when we adopted Sekhmet:
See how it's all sagging and drooping, like there's been a cat laying on the back of that couch for seven years?

Yeah. So when we got the new living room furniture last year, we both agreed that the one place the cat was NOT allowed to be was, yes, on the back of the couches.

So where does she want to be?
Sekhmet, you fucker.

Well, to be fair... you *did* provide her with those throw cushions expressly designed for her comfort, on top of the couch.

oh please-- you expected differently?

And it's by a window.

Looks like a perfect spot for Sehkmet to me!

Galad said...

Of course that is THE spot for Sehkmet, just like my cats insist that placemats on the table are really miniture cat beds.

Another good cat spot is on top of whatever you're reading.

be grateful that sekhmet is merely a couch-potato cat.
her evil boy-twinm scruffy, continues crapping in the hallway when the litter box doesn't suit him.

it is well and truly said that cats do not have owners, they have staffs.

Good luck with that...

Hi! I'm Janis. I've been lurking for a while - I honestly don't remember how long - and I don't remember how I found your blog, but I love your humour and matter-of-fact attitude!

My cat does that same thing; I think it's written into cat DNA to get to the highest place so that they can loom and lord over anyone below them.

I know you used to post pictures of your nail polish, so I thought you might be interested in nice, almost-free nail polish! The website is called Julep, which is kind of like a monthly club for nail polish.

Go here: and click the "GET STARTED" button in the middle of the page to take the survey. Enter your name and e-mail address, then click the "JOIN NOW" button on the next page. When it asks you for a discount code, put in PENNY. This will bring the cost down to one cent, which, for a couple of nail polishes, is pretty amazing! You will have to put in a credit or debit card, but you can cancel at any time without a fine.

I got a couple of nice nail polishes with this!

Also, if you don't like me posting this here, I'm very sorry and won't do anything similar again!

Bubble Wrap. Cats don't really care for it.
