It’s laundry day, and Newton provides dedicated snoopervision.
Afterwards, he also provides an important reminder: No touching the fluffy mancat tail!
A couple weeks ago, Cathy Keisha posted about using mackerel mode on a camera to get better images. The head peep has been playing with this with a lot of success. Normally, she takes her photos on her eye-phone, because it’s usually close at hand. But if she uses her old digital camera’s mackerel mode (which uses a symbol of a tulip for some reason), she gets a lot more clear detail.
Talk about detail… If you click to embiggen this photo, you can actually see the loose furs on top of Newton’s head because the head peep scritched him and didn’t pull them off before taking the picture. How embarrassing for Newton.
You can also get a really good closeup of all of the hair that Newton deposited on the cat tree that the head peep didn’t clean off before taking pictures or Photoshop out of the photo. It’s so hard to get good help.
Anyhow, paws up to CK for reminding the head peep that the camera had something other than point-and-shoot mode. If the head peep is going to be chasing us around with a flashy box, the least she can do is make us look good.
That’s it for today. Except Newton had one last message for all of you…
Newton: Hello, ladies…
First of all, we have to admit that we have gotten lots of awards in the past and have never managed to acknowledge them here on the blog. The head peep just hasn’t been organized enough to do that. We had a stern talk with her and told her that she made us look ungrateful, and she said she’ll try to do better. So to all of you whose previous awards we thanked you for on your blog but never addressed here, a belated thank you.
The last award that was bestowed on us was My Favourite Things Award from Oui Oui over at Tinkletoe Tails. It wasn’t actually bestowed on all of us. It was given specifically to Newton.
From what we understand, Newton needs to tell you his six favorite things:
1. I like to look good for the ladies. This can be a lot of work, but it’s important that I put my best paw forward for the ladycats and ladypeeps all around the world.
2. I love to find new places around the house to hang out. The laundry basket is just one of the many things I have explored and claimed as my own.
3. I love catnip! There’s nothing like the intoxicating scent of the nip to get me going.
4. Sometimes I sleep in really uncomfortable-looking poses, but they are comfortable to me.
5. I know where all the best comfy is found.
6. I love to chill out. There’s nothing like kicking back after a long day.
We’re also supposed to pass the award along. Of course, the head peep waited so long to pass this along that we have no idea who already had it, so please, if you haven’t already had this award, feel free to take it and tell us six new things about yourself!
Thank you again, Oui Oui, for the award!
Newton: I have a new plan for getting attention… *Pushes foot between cushion and chair back* I seem to have my foot stuck in the chair.
Newton: Put down the flashy box and come help me out of the chair. This isn’t funny.
Photographer: But Newton, your foot isn’t stuck.
Newton: You’ll be in trouble when she shows up. In the meantime, do you happen to have any tuna?
