Tabby Tattletale Tuesday


It has come to my attention that some non-tabbys out there are trying to sit in sun patches to gain the beautiful bold stripes they naturally lack.  Even Cory whippersnapper was trying to do it...but guess what?  She failed!  I thought I'd rub it in and go for the double stuff today...kind of like a double stuff cookie only more beautiful.

Meanwhile, I've had to suffer through the Olympics.  The only good part is that mom is spending more time sitting on the couch watching it all which means more lap time for all of us.  I had no interest in competing for a sport since adorable belly exposing wasn't an event.  That is my specialty.  Maybe they'll add it for the 2012 games.

We are all still locked out of the bathroom.  The toilet is back but mom and dad said something about way more to do in there and Cory keeps trying to run in there to nom on plastic bags and stuff.  She's a bit nutty, I mean naughty.  Mom fusses over her and says how cute and adorable she is.  Makes me want to hack up a hairball.

Grete woofie goes back to the v-e-t for her check up this week.  She has been on limited leash walking after her incident of being roughed up at the dog park.  She's making us all crazy because she wants to play and doesn't understand why she can't cut loose.  I would say purr for her, but really I want you to purr for me because she's been so annoying.

Of course Ginger -- I mean, it's all about you, really! All those other kitties are just annoying.

You look wonderful with your stripes on stripes -- very artistic of you!

Keep up the gossip -- I love it!

One Cats Nip said...

You are one lovely tabby lady! You don't need those window stripes your stripes are lovely enough! BTW I understand the dog nonsense that why i dont keep them in my house anymore

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

No doubt about it, Ginger: the only true tabby is a true tabby!

We are keeping all paws crossed for Grete. Tommy well understands how she feels and can't bear it.

Love Meow said...

No worries, Ginger. You will be all right. We are always here for ya! :)

Tobiko said...

Toby would definitely make it on the U.S. Olympic Adorable Belly Exposing team with Ginger!

Eric and Flynn said...

We love your beautiful double stripes Ginger. We hope Grete's vet visit goes well.

Simba said...

Doublestuff Tabbyness is such a brilliant idea!

Poor you, you have to put up with so much from the others, don't you? Even the parents with all the Olympics watching. To be honest with you,it all looks pretty similar to me - lots of white, with people taking ridiculous chances doing dangerous things.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Ginger you are gorgeous with the double stripes!

And we know that adorable belly exposing wasn't in the regular olympics or cat-o-lympics, but it sounds more like a summer sport so you can probably participate then!

And we hope Grete gets better! And if she is better she won't be annoying - double bonus!

Fin said...

Puurrr Ginger

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Well, we can see how you feel about Cory and Grete ... and yourself.

Did we miss something about Grete getting roughed up at the dog park or did we ... uh, forget?

Purring and praying for you - hope you always fit!

Did you help ?

Junior and Orion said...

Oh Ginger....you must be more accepting of all your housemates! Grete needs our purrs, cause hse is still hurt and having thsoe other woofies attack her was not a good thing.

We do agree....they need a floofly tummy category for the Cat-olympics!
