"Sorry, were you using this?"
Athena likes the television.
"Uh. Will one of those things be appearing regularly in the house?"
Just by the look on his face, you can tell what Beowulf is thinking here. "Uh, you want to get this thing out of my face?"
She'd run around some more, but she's too tired.
Here's Athena seriously annoying Beowulf.
Athena thinks my mountain bike is really cool -- she likes to climb up on the handlebars.
"What's what? Whap!"
Clearly this dry erase marker attacked her first and this is self-defense.
"Hey! Hey! Hey! Can I help?"
|Pictures of Beowulf||
Okay, okay. So this is a really tasteless shot. What can I say, I couldn't help myself. I see an opportunity and I take it. Besides, the cats like to walk in on me all the time -- this is my revenge.
Here's a picture of Beowulf drinking from his preferred water hole. There's always a fresh bowl of water in the kitchen (right behind the cat food dish in the CatCam), but for some reason he likes to get it from the place he's not supposed to. What can I say, he's a cat.
"Uh, excuse me. While you're busy focusing that thing and taking your nice little picture, I'm sitting here losing weight even as we speak. Nowshoo."
"You know, if you could stop flashing that thing in my face getting to sleep would be a much easier process."
"Why can't you just leave me alone?"
This is a good one -- I managed to catch Beowulf in mid-meow.
"Yes, I know I'm not supposed to be up here. You may notice that I'm sitting directly on your mousepad. Hope you like that."
Either he just finished getting a snack, or his tongue is stuck.
"Hmm, I wonder what this smells like."
|Pictures of Loki||
Taking a rest.
Learning where to go.
Here Beowulf was giving Loki a little bath.
|Pictures of Ebi||
I got myself a 4 mW, 670 nm laser pointer. Ebi can't get enough of it.
See, at least Ebi knows where he's supposed to get water from.
One of Ebi's favorite resting spots is in a box full of junk in my bedroom.
I managed to get a shot of Ebi meowing while sitting in his favorite box.
Here's Ebi on a short bookcase I have, one of his other favorite places to sit and survey his lands.
"Wha -- hey, that's not funny. Give me that camera. There's no way I'm going to let you put that picture up."
"Well, if you're going to sit there with your damn camera, I'm going to have to entertain myself."
"As you can clearly see, while the food dish does actually contain food, it is clearly not enough to sustain two cats as fat as we are. Please put down your little camera and put more in there."
Here's as close as they got to the real world, being housecats. It's the carpet right near my sliding glass door. I had to sneak the camera around my big fan.
"So here's the deal. At oh-three hundred we'll sneak up on the bed, torture him until he gives us the secret of how he brings the food in from outside, then we'll go on a rampage around the city and get all the food that we want. Got it? ... Uh. I get this strange feeling I'm being watched."
|Pictures of other things||
Here's an actual picture of the CatCam itself. It's under a table, on top of (yes) a phone book, and housed in a little juryrigged structure made of styrofoam and a Mahjongg case so that the cats can't easily bump it.
