Carnival of the Cats #209

Hi, Cubby here. Welcome to the 209th Edition of Carnival of the Cats, St. Patrick's edition! We are still getting set up but all the impawtant stuff is already here!

Shy Cubby is doing the Carnival? I can't believe my eyes!


Beware of people who dislike cats...Irish proverb

Just because it's still winter outside in some places doesn't mean we can't have spring in our hearts--or inside the house anyway.

From Allan Thinks: Mr. Jones shows us his reach in a very cool photograph of his feet and toes!

From The Poor Mouth: These two desperadoes don't seem like they're going to be coming to their senses anytime soon!

From Catymology: Where does a pear shaped cat sit? The gang says, anywhere he or she wants to!

"To please himself only, the cat purrs." - Irish Proverb

From The Scratching Post: Whoever thought taking pictures of a gorgeous Tuxie could be so complicated?

From My Cats and Funny Stories: Rosie's found a new home for her mousies, now if only they would stay!

From Manx Mnews: Ping and Boo engage in that tried and true sibling game of I-was-here-first/I-want-it-now!

From the House of Chaos: Do you think that cats all basically sleep the same way? If you do, you don't own cats. ;) Here is a great analysis of different sleep positions in one household.

From Blog d'Elisson: Hakuna, missing Matata, experiences what we all ultimately must. Your loved one passes on but life does not stop. It goes on and you continue to live and love, so it is with us and our feline friends. The missing loved one lives on in our hearts.

From No Deep Thoughts: What an adorable video clip of Kate playing fetch with her toy...just don't let her catch you with her claws! Ouch!

From Momma Grace & Company: After Ruse and Audace enjoy a spring romp, it's time to relax and enjoy! On another occasion, Grace puts up with some stuff left on her back in order to get her paws around a catnip mouse!

From Anniemiz: Smudge and Clara snuggle up together so sweetly but look what happens when the camera comes out!

From Lab Kat: Coby's face says it all: ah, warm sunshine!

From Cascade Exposures: Check out the whiskers on Spectra and Seal.

"Who could believe such pleasure from a wee ball o' fur?" --Irish saying

From Chance: The gang here agrees with Chance: scritches make everything better!

From Perfectly Parker: Parker's waiting patiently (or so it seems) for his mommy and daddy to get back. He misses them!

From Chey's Place: As the presidential race gets tighter, Chey answers some tough questions!

From Sleeping Mommy: Aw, Mo and Jasmine's kittens are 10 days old. See the adorable pictures!

From Meeyauw: This week's LOL cats' lectionary Bible reading is for Palm Sunday and is taken from

Matthew 21:1-11
Procession with Palms
Isaiah 50:4-9a
Psalm 31:9-16 (Ps. 31:5)
Philippians 2:5-11
Matthew 26:14—27:66
or Matthew 27:11-54

From Artsy Catsy: What a great connection! Artsy Catsy announced new fundraisers for Lilly Lu and Moki with Earth Rights artwork. Anyone concerned about the stuff we are putting into our water and air can also help pay the bills of a couple of kitties by taking part in the fundraisers!

From Sisu: An accounting of the 100 furs war...and check out Babe's eyes! She approves of the new thermal carafe--so does she like to drink coffee or just smell it? And what draws women to hoard cats? Could it be eyes like these?

From Composite Drawlings: We always enjoy hearing the background stories of kitties online and today we learned about Peanut. Thanks for sharing!

From CatSynth: There are some interesting pictures of Luna but some sad news as well about a friend's kitty. We send lots of prayers and purrs to Upsie at What Did You Eat.

From Elms in the Yard: Rahel's taken pictures of some very pretty kitties of different shades and sizes!

From Mind of Mog: It looks like Meowza's having fun playing on Wordless Wednesday. He also shows off a very handsome tummy! On Sunday, the ever lovely Neighbor Kitty shows up for a visit.

A cat's eyes are windows enabling us to see into another world...Irish legend

From Missy & KC: Miss Faith Boomerang has got a long floofy tail! She reminds us of our Amber but Miss F-B definitely has a longer and floofier and elegant tail!

What do you think, Miss F-B? I think we are both bee-yoo-tee-ful!

From A Cat's Perspective:
What big beautiful eyes you have Samantha! No wonder you have such a wide-eyed innocent look, you and Tigger are perched on Mommy's office stuff!

From Diamond's Lair: Diamond Blue Eyes shares a scrapbook page on this lovely easy-like-Sunday morning!

"There were once two cats of Kilkenny.
Each thought this was one cat too many.
So they fought and they fit
And they scratched and they bit,
'Til excepting their nails
And the tips of their tails
Instead of two cats there weren't any."
--Traditional limerick

From Stranger Ranger: What decadently luxurious chair! Look how tiny Ivy and Maddie seem to be! It makes us wish we had a time share, too!

From the TT&TOT gang this week:


Man Cat Monday: A New Present
Cats on Tuesday: Looking Out For Each Other

Well, that's all folks! Happy St. Patrick's Day and don't indulge too much!

Oh, too late for me! I over-indulged in 'nip. I don't even know who I am...Mouse or Sox. Better sleep it off...

See you next week at Chey's Place for Carnival of the Cats #210!
