lunch with tabby cats

when mom came home for lunch yesterday,
we waited patiently, as always, to be fed.
we were well-behaved, as always!oops! nitro's caught stalking the wild turkey-slice!!
(photo's a little smeary--photographer reaching for schpritz bottle)
oops!! another stalker!!! (at this point,
ed departed the table--he saw the schpritz bottle.)
nitro was brave even while staring into the cannon's
. . . errrrr . . . schpritz bottle's mouth! (left lower corner)
he took what was coming to him, no excuses.
(xing doesn't get schpritzed; she's already skittish enough.)
then came detente, even between sworn enemies nitro and xingxing,
since there was turkey gravy on offer to seal the deal.
(ed and nels opted for private dining facilities in the window nook.)

Yes, I can see how well-behaved you are. Practicing for Miss Peach's Victorian Afternoon Tea, no doubt.

Wow, Blogger is still acting wild. I'm getting all kinds of error notes popping up while typing this.

At least KC got Mr. Linkie to work this last try!

That dumb ol spray bottle! We always ask fur mom to share but she usually doesn't. Well, not lunch anyway. Dinner is a free for all!

The spray bottle is evil! I hate being squirted with water. You are very lucky to be able to lick the leftovers. Yum!

Yummy turkey gravy! You were all very brave to stand up to that bottle. It looks mean.

Oh we hate the spray bottle!! Our beans call it "The Hand of God" cause we hate it. Just looking at it makes us run off - not cause we are scared mind you, but beacuse it takes forever to groom the furrs back to how they were once they get wet.

I think you were very well-behaved. And I am glad you were rewarded with licks of delicious graby!

Any left? We're coming right over. Hey Getzger, go get the keys from mom's purse, okay? Tubby, you know where Chez Pierce is? Is that like cheez? I like cheez. Cuz I'm hungry. Mom won't put more food in the bowl. She sez we can shake it a bit and get more out. I don't wanna. But I need food soon cuz hunger's making me be NICE to beans and I can't do that. If I can get Getzger to drive, we'll be there in a few minutes.
