Easy Like Sunday

MaoMao: It's hard fur Momma to get a good picture of me 'cause I'm such a spaz! I won't hardly hold still fur the camera, so that means she gets blurry pictures of me. And lots of times, when she thinks she's gonna get a good picture, I'll turn away at the last minute, like I did here. Ha! Fooled ya, Momma!




Marilyn: I, on the other hand, love the camera. Here I am, glamming it up.

"Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood
Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it." ~from "Vogue" by Madonna








Dorydoo: As the Heat-Seeking Ballicus of the house, I'm napping in front of the heater. Oh, the warmth feels so good on my furs!




Brainball: And I'm busy snoopervising Mom. Humans can never have too much snoopervision, and as Alpha Cat, I am the most qualified Ballicus for the job. (And I love to make a kitty meatloaf of myself on top of her computer!)

But Mao Mao, you've got to start letting your mom photograph your face so we can see how handsome you are!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Like you Mao Mao, I love to turn away just as the camera goes off!

Sweet Praline said...

Mao Mao, I would love to see that handsome face of yours!

Cory said...

MaoMao, don't deprive us of your adorable face!

Cadbury is with Mao on the photo thing. He's very hard to take a picture of, always moving at the last second so I can't get his cutest poses. It's like they KNOW.

Gretchen and Mike said...

Of course Marilyn glams it up when the camera comes out...she's a STAR! She knows how to pose for the camera like a pro.

Me...I do what Mao does, I turn my head at the last second...
hahahahaha! It drives her nuts!

Dorydoo knows how to keep warm. And Brainball is so kingly in his catloaf pose.

I didn't get to wish you all a Happy New Year. Mom bean wrecked her left arm and is waiting for that to heal...she said she pulled a muscle in her neck. I'll sure be glad when her arms are all better...I got balls to play with.

Love you guys...fluffly country cousins. Hugsabunces...Gretchen

Mom takes so many photographs we do not even care anymore. Except the flash thingy is no fun. We don't stick around if that's going off.

Brainball, you made a real nice kitty meatloaf!

Forever Foster said...

Marilyn, you are the very definition of 'glamour puss'!:)

Zoolatry said...

Yes, Mao Mao, you are an official member of our CACC (Cats Against Cameras Club)... Marilyn on the other hand, is going for America's Top Model.

The Island Cats said...

We don't like the camera much...but we've given up trying to fight it...

Happy New Year to the world's most fabulous Whitester!

Grrreta said...

MaoMao, please don't deprive us of seeing that handsome face in pictures. My sister Chloe moves around so much that Mommy can't ever get a good picture of her either. We do have lots of pictures of gray blurs though.

Lux said...

I hope you all have a lovely day today!

Black Cat said...

You're all so gorgeous, backwards or forwards! But Mao Mao, your face is far too sweet and kissable for you to deprive your fans of the sight of it!

I hope you all have a wonderful year and your Mom's books get published and bring in squillions of dollars! :) xxx

Jake and Bathsheba said...

Glad to see that you all are lookin' good in the new year. Happy new year to all!

Fat Eric said...

nice relaxing!

Mao Mao, maybe your mum should try videoing you instead. My mum has been following me everywhere with the Flip video camera she got for Christmas!

Cat with a garden said...

Mao, it IS a shame that you turn away, but we understand that you don't want to be easy prey for the pawparazzi. Marylin, you really look dashing! Dorydoo: Toasty paws are the best. Brainball - you are such a perfect loaf-cat.
Purrs, Siena & Chilli

Fin said...

I'm with you Mao Mao, never give the pawparrazzi what they want.

Daisy said...

Mao Mao, you are just like my brother Harley! He will hardly ever sit still for modeling.

JB's Big World said...

Great shots of you all. And anoopersiving is very important. Marilyn, just like Misty sure does have a bit of glam in her!

Two Sisters said...

Great pictures of all of you! Bouncie like to turn his head just like you Mao when Mom took pictures of him so we have a lot of pictures of him with a blurry head!

Marilyn as always is a beautiful lady. Lucy likes the heater just like Dorydoo. Brainball is a great snoopervisor!

The Furry Kids said...

I do the same thing to The Mom - give her a great photo opp and then turn away from her at the very last second. heh heh

Dorydoo, you look very lovely.
Whiskie kissies to you,
EG

Cats said...

Good to see all you guys being happy and comfy. Funny Mao, Puretty Marilyn and Dorydoo and Alpha cat Brainball! Sending you many hugs and purrs. Have a great week :)

Camie's Kitties said...

We love to turn away too - just as mom is about to take the picture. You all look great.

Tavi, Cody, Camie and Miss Jade

Sunny's Mommy said...

Marilyn, you are such a good model. Ollie used to be good and sit still for the camera, too. Now all she wants to do is headbutt her camera, or get the red laser grid. Ack.

MoMo said...

Good to see the Ballicai beautiful faces (and back). Marilyn is gorgeous, as always! Don't we mature kitties look so much better than the human version!

Cory said...

Thanks for the tip on the fish oil MaoMao! We'll ask our v-e-t if that's ok...as long as Jonesie and Ginger aren't allergic to fishies!
