Just Too Cute!!

Sometimes our pets just do the cutest things and yesterday was Tucker's turn, though he would die of indignation if he knew he was being accused of anything so dastardly as being cute. He's fought that battle his whole life. Alas, he's never realized that fate stacked the cards against him by giving him that long, lux, grey fur and cute little mug!
You're bothering me. The paper's mine. ALL mine.

At our house, anytime the UPS person brings a package, its for everybody, not just whoever's name happens to be on the box. Any packing materials, like crinkly, crunchy, smelly paper belongs to the cats, especially this one! He attacks, romps, beats, smacks, rolls, hides, and sleeps in "his" paper nest!

Maybe if I ignore you and that light you'll go away.
Either that, or I'm going to have to bite you.

We put the paper down and Tucker immediately begins to shape it to his satisfaction. Woe be to any misguided feline that happens within batting range during this stage! This time he managed to create a tunnel. The photos were all taken from underneath a chair with the help of a flashlight. If I use the flash, he's gone in a flash as he hates the bright light. Not to mention it makes him look like a demon with red, glowing eyes.

If you're not going away, would you at least turn that light OFF?! Like, now!
Wanna play?!! Stick your hand over here. Yeah, go ahead. Try touching my paper.....

As nonchalant as he appears, he would love nothing better than for me to start tickling the edge of the paper so he could pounce on "the noise!" Either that, or he'd really like for me to turn that irritating flashlight off.

  2. Awwww...he is adorable. I'm sure he got much joy out of his tunnel--maybe even enough to make up for being called cute and adorable and having a flashlight shone in his face...

  5. Hahaha! He's sooooo cute. I just love kitties. Bip does the same thing...any box, paper or bag is fair game.

  7. He's a cutie! In my daughter's house, the dog gets those papers and has a ball ripping them up. Once he's "killed" the paper he walks away and forgets it. My cat doesn't like the paper so much but loves to crawl into the boxes. (Did you get my email on making books? I just want to make sure it didn't go to SPAM)?

  8. That look would curl the whiskers of any cat that would dare to intrude upon the master while he is creating. Turn that light of dad nab it.

  9. Adorable. I love it when Cats take things over like this. I have never thought of a flash light..Flashs ruin a photo most of the time when taking them of my cats. Cute pix.. thanks for sharing.

  10. Yep, my cat does the same thing! I keep a supply of white tissue paper on hand for an unexpected play toy for Rascal. He loves to dive-bomb it from across the floor. If only we could be so easily entertained.

  15. Aren't cats just one of the best things on the planet?!
    Definitely don't tell Tucker or he might tell Raphael and then I too would have my hands full :D
