Photohunt ~ Whiskers-Napoleon

Actually, cats do this to protect you from gnomes
who come and steal your breath while you sleep.
- John Dobbin -

Hai Furriends,
Since this is a 'Free' day on TNChicks Photobucket, I thought I would tell you something about my whiskers. When I was a kitten..about 17 years ago, I had some long, pretty whiskers. I grew into a big kittycat and my whiskers grew, too. My whiskers tell me if a space is big enough for me to go through, and many other interesting things. Now days my whiskers are longer than I am wide, because of my CRF and weight loss.
I have found the best thing they do is wake Mom up at 2:00 A.M. You know, sometimes we get hungry when she is sleeping. If you, my furriends do not already know this, all you have to do to wake up your person that feeds you is put your nose on their nose, then move your whiskers all around their face. This will, I have found, wake them up pretty quick!
Check over at TNChicks to see what other Photohunters found for their Free Day.
Happy Hunting and stay safe to all our beanfriends and buddies expecting snow or bad weather. All of the Beans around Atlanta are loading up on milk and bread. That is what the Beans do.

  1. Beans do some mighty odd things, don't they? I'm sure that your awakening technique is very effective!

    You probably won't approve of my post today, unless you are a very tolerant cat. . .

  4. We hope that while your bean is stocking up on milk and bread that she is also stocking up on stinky goodness and Temptations for you guys. Oh, and hay for Patrick and Bob, who we are sure will be in the basement weathering out that storm. Stay safe!
