Scooter: What's THIS??

Me: It's where the hair parts on your tummy.

Scooter: How COULD you?? The horror. The mortification.

Me: What?? It's adorable. Look at that fluffy soft fur!!

Scooter: It's embarrassing. Besides, I don't want just anyone looking at my tummy fur. It's a sacred thing.

Me: (stifling a snicker) Uh...sacred?? Aren't you getting a little carried away now??

Scooter: No. I'm very serious. I have a following of people that have come to expect a level of dignity and decorum on these pages.

Me: We're talking about the same blog, right??

Scooter: Please don't talk to me right now. I'm feeling violated.

Me: Perhaps you should go and lie down.

Scooter: Good idea. I'll grab a bite to eat on the way.


Our cat is just as guilty of vanity as the next person is.

It's comical.

He primps, he preens and sometimes when you catch him doing his "tubby time" he's mortified. He wants to slink away and hope that you weren't really looking in his direction.

He'll even change the subject by suddenly and very deliberately staring off in another direction. We try to go along with the little man, but there are times that Scooter becomes the comic relief in the day.

Sorry Scooter.

He's retired to a quiet corner and following his snack he is no doubt contemplating his next hairball.

Thirteen Things Scooter and Shelley Question

Shelley: 1. Why did anyone make Ranch Dressing after Hidden Valley??
Scooter: Who needs salad anyhow??
Shelley: You seem to like my violets after you blap!!

Scooter: 2. Why don't they make a cat food can that cats can open??
Shelley: Get real here buddy. You're too lazy to open your own food and LIKE having a minion.
Scooter: Good point.

Shelley: 3. Why when you drop a roll of tape on its side does it land so that the roll is now covered with fuzz and cat hair leaving a fuzzy line down whatever I tape!!
Scooter: I can't help but feel this is a personal blow.
Shelley: Because I said cat hair?? Well, if the claw fits...

Scooter: 4. Why can't I go outside??
Shelley: This is not a valid question.
Scooter: I'm suffocating...gag...choke...whine.

Shelley: 5. You're not suffocating...and this is taking up another question.
Scooter: You go outside. I get 5 minute supervised field trips with Daddy.
Shelley: After which you realize you're outside and come running for the safety of "IN". Next question.

Scooter: 6. Why aren't there more shows on tv with cats as the heroes??
Shelley: Possibly because cats sleep 22 out of 24 hours and none of the cats could stay awake for the filming.
Scooter: I need a nap.

Shelley: 7. Why can't they make an ice cream container that doesn't collapse when you try to scoop ice cream out??
Scooter: I really only like chocolate.
Shelley: I've yet to figure that out too.

Scooter: 8. Why don't I have a dog to swat??
Shelley: Well, for one we can't have a dog here.
Scooter: Because they're inferior lifeforms, like humans. I understand.

Shelley: 9. There you go we've got to carry this on to another question. Dogs are NOT inferior...and neither are humans.
Scooter: Uh, hello you (human) clean my litter box and dogs well, are known to eat from the lit....
Shelley: SCOOTER!!!!!!!!!!!

Scooter: 10. Why don't I have my own queen size bed??
Shelley: I give up.
Scooter: What?? What did I say??

Shelley: 11. Why why why do grocery stores insist on opening just 2 or 3 registers when there are lines of people waiting to get out??
Scooter: That reminds me...we're out of "Ground Mealtime" so next time you're out...
Shelley: You're all heart there Gandhi.

Scooter: 12. Why don't they make a remote for cats without thumbs??
Shelley: Uh, what would you watch??
Scooter: Lassie of course. A big smart dog (snicker snicker) saves the world. I love comedies!!

Shelley: 13. Why do I have this cat?? Tell me again??
Scooter: It's my sweet demeanor, quick wit and stunning good looks.
Shelley: It's not your humility.
