Looking Around


I wish I were a more minimalist kind of blogger, because then I would have the good sense to post this picture of Ferris, and leave it at that... go for a run, meet my personal trainer, life coach, manicurist type person. I would know that nothing I can say, and no other pictures, are going to be quite as captivating or good as this picture of our energetic and stealthy attack cat.

There I go.
Can't stop myself from saying one more thing, sharing one more picture.

Oh. Look. How timely. Geoff just sent me a link to a photographer's blog. A successful blogger. Wholey cow. It's a mind blower.

Hey, remember my resolution for the new year... about not giving up?
Yeah, I give up.

Just kidding.

Hey, it's the cat, again. Looking funny, but not quite as blog worthy as in the first image, and not even remotely as blog worthy as anything in "Stuck In Customs.com"

Fortunately, I had no plans for this post. I was going to think of a witty, possibly self-deprecating, way to say that I am sitting here eating a slice of my birthday cake. I thought I would mention that robotics and FIRST kick-off is in four days, because I know how "well" that goes for my readership. Otherwise, this is an entirely undirected, floundering post. I don't even have another cat picture. Or any more cake.

This is the one thousand seven hundred and twelfth post to Chickenblog. Leaving a comment on this post will ensure that spring will follow winter, and it will also contribute to your overall sense of well being.

Thank you.

Wooo Hoooo - my sense of well-being has been contributed, and I'm SOO glad that spring will now follow winter, all because I commented! Thank you, Natalie! :) Ferris is such a cute cat!

Your blog posts ALWAYS contribute to my sense of well being!

Yours is my favourite blog - as for the other you mention, well, it has some cool pictures but I'd never heard of it before and I won't be going back day after day for that 'feel good' factor I get from THIS blog!!
NEVER give up!!

I blame the animals. If they would not do SUCH CUTE THINGS then we could stop after only one photo.

tara said...

Ack, that cat is so cute.
I would have left a comment even if I didnt want to be responsible for spring not coming after winter. I rely on that fact.

MMMMMM... cake!

That cat is hilarious. Happy Day!

Kate said...

Wow, crazy Ferris!
And your comment about personal trainer/manicurist totally made me laugh. Thank you.

What darling photos. Ferris is priceless, and so is your blog. Mind blowing photos have their place yes they do. But I agree with Annie, they can't compete with the wit and wisdom gathered here at Chicken blog.
In fact Ferris inspired me to adopt a kitten here at work. One last little girl, the very same color has her older California cousin. Now you must understand I'm cat poor,I didn't need another kitten. But the fact her 7 brothers and sisters went in a heartbeat, and she was all alone. AND the color of the Blog STAR Ferris. Well it sealed the deal. So Miss Sonata, of the pale blush orange color now resides in kitten splender. She isn't quite as active as Ferris, but she's young yet :)

I'll take any guarantee that spring will follow winter...bring it on!

Natalie, the Chickenblogger said...

You all are so awesome!
Spring will come!
And I wish you could see Max beaming after reading all the sweet comments about his baby. Max and Ferris... they are a pair.
Many thanks... for your comments, for saving spring, for kitty rescues, and for your support of blogs with periodic bouts of doubt.

Ferris wouldn't want you become a minimalist blogger - and neither would I!

Happy belated New Year and Merry Everything, Natalie!! xxoo

Val said...

Happy new year to you, and what sweet pictures. I love cats' front paws and legs--What great captures. :)

Susan said...

Hahahaha! I would have been worried if you had just posted a picture, Natalie, no matter how worthy it was! I love your words, so you just keep on keepin' on, girl. You are so good at what you do!
