Tuxie Tuesday

 
This is not the best photo of me.  Mom could certainly do better.
 
Do you know what mom and dad have been calling me?
 
Pigpen!
 
Mom said this photo illustrates why they call me that.  I think it's unfair.  I mean, who could resist the feel of luscious dirt and leaves and nip and bugs and stuff ground into ones furs?  When mom calls me to come inside, it's my "last call" to grind in as much as I can. 
 
Yeah...and what do I get for my efforts?  Pigpen.  Figgy Piggy.  Big Fig Pig.  The Notorious F.I.G.P.I.G.

Notorious FIGPIG!!!! BWAHAHAHA!!!
Love this.

Figgy, you just go ahead and roll around all you want. Ignore the commentary. They're just jealous because the neighbors would talk if they saw THEM doing it!

; )

How rude! We bet you smell absolutely divine, too. (we'd sniff you!)

Happy Cat Family said...

You look gorgeous! Roll around as much as you want - if they have to clean the house afterwards.... Well, not your problem - they are the ones with opposable thumbs!

Hey, I've heard of humans putting mud on their faces, so why can't you have a dirt bath, Figaro?

We know you're just trying to bring the outside in with you. It's thoughtful, really.

Figaro, that is the reason I never get to go out...all I want to do is roll in the dirt. The humans should try it sometime and see how fun it really is!

How can a kitty resist such a heavenly experience as a roll in dry dirt, leaves, twigs and bugs? Your humans are rude to call you names!

The Whiskeratti said...

That is certainly rude! You are just enjoying one of kitteh-kind's great pleasures. Hoomins should try it too.

You need to go NOOD!!!

Poor Figgy. We suspect you really don't mind a little name calling as long as you can keep getting dirty. Sounds as if the word "bath" is not in your humans' vocabulary. Lucky you. Purrs and Hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Mom is laughing at your nicknames! She is just so rude!

My dad calls himself Pigpen when he plays online Poker. I haven't noticed him rolling around in the dirt though.

Eileen said...

Silly beans! At our house Saku is the roller in the dirt guy...hey, he's a tuxie too!

We thinks you should leave the beans a prezzie for their rude remarks. A lovely hairball with a little leaves or grass sounds just right, MOL!

Of course you have to roll around when you are outside !
My mom too is naging about me taking in a lot of stuff in my floofy fur :)
