True story Thursday

The following conversation took place last night between Kate, Kate's friend Nikki and Nikki's three-year-old son Xavier, while Nikki was reading Xavier one of the Spot the Dog books...

Xavier: Where's Suzie? [Suzie is Spot's baby sister, who appears in some books]
Nikki: I don't know, she's not in this one, maybe this story happened before Suzie was born. Do you remember when it used to just be you and me and Papa before Esther was born? [Esther is Xavier's baby sister]
Xavier: Yes.
Kate: Do you remember when Esther was in your mummy's tummy?
Xavier: Yes... [pause] ...and Pablo was in your tummy.
What the... ?

Farewell, Bonnie

[Thanks to Zoolatry for the lovely Bonnie graphic]

The lovely Bonnie Underfoot went to the Bridge last Thursday. On behalf of the Pablo Fan Club (of which she was a loyal member), I'd like to send my bestest purrs to Victor his family at this very sad time. We'll miss you, Bonnie! Please visit Bonnie and Victor's blog to send your condolences and read Victor's touching account of Bonnie's last hours with her loving family... but take tissues!!

(Portrait of a) Tabby Tuesday

A few weeks ago, Nick and Kate's seven-year-old niece came around for a visit with her family. While she was at our place, she chose to render my likeness in felt pens (you Americats call them magic markers?). I was extremely flattered.

She also wrote a series of questions for Kate to answer about me. You'll have to biggify this to be able to read it.

Cool, huh?

A little late, but here's my six-word memoir

Quite a while ago, Zoey from Zoolatry tagged me for the six-word memoir meme. Here are the rules:
1. Write your own six-word memoir.
2. Post on your blog, and add a picture if you'd like.
3. Link to the one who sent it to you.
4. Tag at least five more blogs.
5. Let the tagged blogs know by leaving a comment.
6. Write your memoir - have fun!

Now that all the excitement of the premiere of CCSI III is over (by the way, a big fat conCATulations to the team who put the show together... I've never worked with a more professional group of animals in my life), I've finally had time to consider the six words that best describe me and my life and times:

'Eat as many chickens as possible!'

[Oh Kate, that photo is SO unflattering!]

I know it's kind of a cheaters' way to tag cats, but this one has been doing the rounds for a while, so anycat who wants to give this a go and hasn't been tagged yet, you're it!

It's almost showtime!

Hey everycat, don't forget that this weekend is the premiere of the new CCSI drama CCSI III: The Missing Mummy Caper. You can check it out at Sassy's blog: Being famous sure has its perks... check out the gifts I received from the CCSI III executives for my involvement in the project:

Do you think this means that I won't be getting paid? Might hafta talk to my union about that one...

Break a leg, everycat!

I'm a celebrity! Yay!

Seeing as I'm about to become an uber-famous celebrity (I'm in the cast of the new CCSI production CCSI III: Missing Mummy Caper), I thought that I'd better take the Catster 'Which celebrity is your pet?' test. This was my result:
Keeping a straight face around Pablo is a cheek muscle-wrenching nightmare. Try as you may, but giggling is inevitable because Pablo is comedian Will Ferrell! For a while Pablo was just funny on Saturday nights, but that's all changed now that he's taken his act on the road. Whether he's being silly in real life or on the silver screen, Pablo has a true knack for making people crack up. Pablo has even managed to make the crossover to the cyberwebs, where he delivers raw, fresh, uncooked humor to his countless cyberpet fans. A fast runner, Pablo runs marathons when he's not dreaming up his next slapstick routine. Widely talented and able to impetsonate any number of two and four-legged critters, Pablo's fans will be lapping it up for a long time to come.

Hmm. We love Will Ferrell in this house, but even I don't think I'm good-natured enough to be likened to such a great guy. I think I'm a more unapproachable type... like Marlon Brando. Anyway, I made Kate take these glamour portraits of me at the weekend just in case Vanity Fair contact me at short notice and Annie Leibovitz is on assignment:

Ooh. Brooding. Sultry. Yet oddly captivating.

Here's to fame and fortune!
