Cat Blogging, sans Pictures

There's a tradition in the blogs that every Friday cat pictures are posted by the bloggers who are owned by cats. I would do this as well, but I'm not quite up to speed on getting images into here yet, so I'll just give an update on Smokey.

Smokey has fitted in pretty well after about three weeks of being out and about in the house. She's a young cat, so she loves to sneak attack the others (and our feet when we sleep, doing that kittenish "waitwaitwait, now lean back and POUNCE" move!) Shadow takes it well and will play with her, Robin takes it or leaves it, and Casper - who until Smokey came was the smallest cat here - seems to enjoy watching someone smaller than him try to fight. Ziggy, though, has still not quite decided Ms. Smokey is on the up-and-up, and unleashes a truly fearsome hiss whenever he sees her. This is not helped by the fact that Smokey is a bit of a greedmoe, and has tried to shove Ziggy - who probably outweighs her three-to-one and is at least half again as big as she is - out of the way of his food dish.

This went over about as well as the KKK guy who crashed the Black Panther meeting in full regalia. Only with less hissing and swatting. I don't foresee Ziggy and Smokey cuddling up together anytime soon.
