Let Chickens Out, Then Blog Phineas...

I'm trying to finish up this post while Phineas is still romping outdoors this morning.

Guess that didn't work out.

We have a clock that meows on the hour. It's supposed to have different (real) meows, but it seems to be stuck on just one at this point. At any rate, Phineas is the only cat in the house that when he hears the clock strike the hour (meow-meow-meow. meow-meow-meow) he often comes running and sits at the base of the clock, staring up at it fixedly.

"There's a cat stuck in there."

He doesn't do this every hour. It's somewhat hit or miss, depends on what he's doing at the time. But he did it again this afternoon. We grabbed the camera and I triggered the meows again and again until Miss E got the shots.

Ozzie asks "Whatcha doin'?" Note the scuzzy black line where cats have been rubbing their chins for several years now.

"There's a cat caught in that clock, see?"
"I don't get it."

"Nobody gets me."
It's lonely being Phineas sometimes. He lives in a world of one.

And no, we did not train him to do this stunt. All on his own.

It's so funny when he does it when no one is around. You just see him go tearing into the kitchen and plunk himself down like that. I felt a wee bit guilty triggering the sound over and over. But only a bit. We needed to get that shot.

LOL. Are those bird pics low on the fridge? Are they for the kitties too?

I don't know if there are any birds in those magnets. Miss E has always been into ocean stuff, so I suspect some are fish. Others are probably animals. They've been on the fridge for years now, along with assorted papers about school. The cats do play with the magnets from time to time. You find them around the house, the ones they can get off and roll around.

Oh, Lord, that's adorable. I wish I has similar pics of my Toonces freaking out that there are Cats ans Dogs and Birds on the TV when we watch America's Funniest Videos.

Cats: endless entertainment.
