Fuzzy Paws

Chairman Mao here. As you can see, Momma forgot to say "Stinky Goodness Turkey Flavor" when she took my picture.



Anyway, my big sister Brainball has the fuzziest paws I've ever seen on a kitty. Here's a picture, so you can see 'em too. Lookit all that floof between her toesies!



Dorydoo wanted to show off her paw, too. Hers is little, slim, and sleek. And purr-etty except for when she swats at me with it.



The only paws Marilyn MonREOW's thinkin' about are Mickey Mantle's. Here she is, blowin' him a kissie ("Mickey! Mickey! Wherefore art thou, Mickey?").



And all of us Ballicai keep purrin' and purrin' for Lilly Lu.

Dear Marilyn,
Wild Nights! Wild Nights! were I with thee
Wild Nights would be our luxury.
Futile the winds to a heart in port, Gone with the compass
Gone with the chart--Rowing in Eden.
Ah the Sea! Might I but moor-- Tonight in thee

Yours ... The Mick

Chairman Mao said...

Dearest Mickey,

Ooooooooooh, my stars, I'm blushing bright red from my pink skin to the tips of my white fur! Thank you from my heart for those beautiful words, and here are some for you, my dearest dear:

My letters! all dead paper, mute and white!
And yet they seem alive and quivering
Against my tremulous hands which loose the string
And let them drop down on my knee to-night.
This said,---he wished to have me in his sight
Once, as a friend: this fixed a day in spring
To come and touch my hand . . . a simple thing,
Yet I wept for it!---this, . . . the paper's light . . .
Said, Dear, I love thee; and I sank and quailed
As if God's future thundered on my past.
This said, I am thine---and so its ink has paled
With lying at my heart that beat too fast.
And this . . . O Love, thy words have ill availed
If, what this said, I dared repeat at last!


Yours most purringly,

Marilyn MonREOW

Mao, you definitely don't look like you want to have your photo taken in the first photo!

Brainball does have very fluffy toes! Wow! The complete opposite of mine!

Daisy said...

Wow, Brainball has built-in fur slippers! Dorydoo's paws are very sleek. I can tell who is on Marilyn MonREOW's mind. Chairman Mao, you are a good brother to show us all about your sisters.

Chairman Mao said...

Thanks, everybodies, and kittyhugs and purrs all around! And hehehe, Mickey and Marilyn are really gettin' into that love poetry stuff.

Kimo & Sabi said...

That little love affair is almost as sickening sweet as a preteen crush - gag!

Hi Mao!

Chairman Mao said...

Hi there, Kimo & Sabi! Yeah -- I don't know why Mickey and Marilyn aren't more worried about gettin' cooties or somethin'. Goodness knows I don't want no girlcooties, hehehehe!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

The Meezers said...

Faz the Cat said...

Hi Chairman Mao (what do I call you - Chairman or Your Excellency?) These pictures of paws are very good, I think cats are so lucky they have such lovely feet rather than those big plates of meat that humans have. FAZ

Boy said...

Nice paws!
And sweet Mawiwyn too!

Caesar and Princess said...

Well, we agree that Brainball's paws are extremely floofy.

Mao, you look very cute, and so is DoryDoo, and Marilyn's is just beeeeyoootiful as always!

Chairman Mao said...

Thanks, Meezers! Yeah, it sure is hard to beat that stinky goodness, turkey flavor.

And hiya, Faz! Human feets are funny lookin', aren't they? And Chairman Mao's my full name, but most everybody calls me Mao or MaoMao. Or MaoKnocker. Or MaoBrain.

Thank y'all, Boy, Caesar, and Princess! Yeah, my sisters are purr-etty cool, for girlz, that is, hehehehe.
