    Cats are always like “whatever”.

    @de stijl:

    She looks to be plotting an attack on the weird moving shadows and lights currently invading the ceiling.

  3. Jon says:

    @Kathy: In my experience, pretty much any time a cat is awake it is plotting something. How nefarious that plot is depends on the cat.

  4. de stijl says:


    The plots never go anywhere.

    Napping is the prime impetus.

    I love it when they give us the look that says they think we are idiots.

  5. Kathy says:


    Of course. That’s what cats do.

    As nefarious as the cat. Ramona, my cat, never plotted anything past her ongoing exploration of my bedroom, and getting me to give her things to stalk and pounce on. And, naturally, the slow demolition of the ottoman she loved to scratch.

    Cats have busy lives.

  6. de stijl says:


    Scritches from me to Ramona when she is amenable.

    @de stijl:

    Alas, a cat may lead a busy life but not a long one.
