Great shot Pat:)

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Hahahaha! I love that! Cats are so patient when there's food to be gained. You WILL give them the food.

Ms. A said...

Awwww! Haven't heard how Buy Me Barbie's family is doing. Any news?

Dawn said...

Haha! No way! I won't even let my kids sit on the counters;))
Sweet pic.

Belle said...

Our cats eat on the dining room table so the dogs won't eat their food.
Love the photo!

Edie B. Kuhl said...

I'm not a cat person but now that I have two of my own I reluctantly admit they are fascinating to watch. What a great shot!

You know, the kitchen is always the hangout spot, no matter what house you're in and what company you keep! They're so Cute:)

Pat Tillett said...

Alex - The black one will steal food off your plate if your not looking!

salarsen - Klassic Kats! Mine too!

Esther - That's funny!!! Medium well, please!

mice - Thankis so much! You are so right!

Hand of Zeus - The fur would fly! That's for sure! Thanks...

Karen - I'm not sure, but you are so right!

California Girl - Thanks! Me too!

Betty - Love those kitties! Have a good week...

Alan - Funny! We have a third, who is on a diet also. We've had her for several months, after she'd spent about 8 months in a cage...

Ren - They all seem quite a bit alike!

Bossy Betty - I sure did! I knew you'd like it...

Oilfield Trash - Thanks so much! We like 'em!

Brian - Counter balance! That's funny!

Berit - Thanks so much! Have a good week!

TVA - You are totally right! They know exactly what they are doing!

Ms. A - Thanks so asking! Everyone is accounted for. They are all safe and nobody is hurt.

Dawn - We have better control over the kids. The cats seem to have taken over!

Pat Tillett said...

Belle - We used to have a dog and had to do the same thing. The dog liked catfood better than their own. Thanks!

Edie - They are fascinating! I believe they see things that we can't!

Nancy - So true! Cat's, dogs, or humans! The kitchen is the place! Thanks Nancy!

Pam Tucker said...

Oh, I LOVE kitties... these are adorable! ;)

They are so cute Patrick.

becca said...

haha too cute

Lynette Killam said...

Our pets are such a joy, aren't they? The dog tries to steal the cat food, the cats get into the dog's food when nobody's looking, and all three of them take it for granted they'll be given choice morsels off our plates. They have trained us wonderfully well...LOL!

Pat...
that is really funny and it made me laugh!

Warren Zoell said...

Cats are smarter then dogs.
response in 5, 4, 3, ...

TS Hendrik said...

They don't mess around, they know what time it is.

Nat said...

Hope their patience paid off!

Mynx said...

I love the symmetry and the contrasts in this pic. They look like gorgeous cats

Marlene said...

HA HA HA...I Love it!! Cat butts!!! (Well, close enough!)

Chuck said...

Easiest way to take pictures of animals...when they are a sleep or when the are waiting for food. I start doing something with food and they don't move a muscle...or blink.

Stickup Artist said...

That's a classic! Gotta love em.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

They look so determined, and I can't even see their faces. Cute shot, Pat.

Pat Tillett said...

Ven - My wife shares everything. I don't because they are never satisfied. We have one that will tap you on the elbow when she wants a bite...

Pam - Me too! They are pretty cute! Maybe I'll do a post each of the three...

Costas - Thanks Costas!

becca - Thanks becca! Our current children!

Lynette - They sure are! We no longer have a dog, but the same thing happened at our house! You are right about the training...

Tracy - Thanks Tracy! Happy to be of service!

Warren - Yes, they are! Dogs are like unruly children!

Tim - I swear, one of them can read the clock.

Nat - It usually does!

Mynx - They sure are! thanks! It was one of those things you see and have to get the camera.

Marlene - Pretty close!

Chuck - Oh yeah! Otherwise it's don't touch me...

Stickup Artist - thanks! You sure do!

Robyn - Thanks Robyn! When it comes to food, they sure are determined!

We get the
"Here I am, hungry, starving and waiting for food" look three times a day from Nelson. It takes a hard heart not to cave.

Baby Sister said...

That is an awesome picture. Lol.

Copyboy said...

That looks like my guinea pig – minus the tail, oh and the stripes.

Jhon Baker said...

why do you feed them people?

John McElveen said...

That's the Cat's Meow right there! I swear that is OUR "DOC" on the right!

Shrinky said...

Nevine said...

He he he... it's like they're in a meeting... planning who's going to get what when dinner is served! Neat shot, Pat!

Nevine

Sérgio Pontes said...

Mine also do the same =)

altadenahiker said...

Maybe she tries to keep it a secret, but Emma has some raccoon in her background.

DumbFunnery said...

if you had a few more cats you could maybe get a cat-version of cheers going on?? i'm seeing these cats and just thinking of norm and cliff.

Stickup Artist said...

Hi Pat, just stopping back in to answer your question about the location of the burnt Joshua Trees. I found them driving into Wrightwood on the Angeles Crest Hwy soon after exiting the 138. You may be familiar with the 138, it is where the Mormon Rocks are. Happy Trails!

Ann Best said...

Re: your comment on my post. I'm so glad you wife's relatives in Japan are safe. They are SUCH graceful and patient people. We can learn much from them, during this incredibly difficult time. Whenever I start to complain about some "little" thing, I think of the millions without heat and food, and repent.

And aren't animals wonderful! I love this photograph!!

tapirgal said...

Expressive tails.

Megan said...

Love the b&w and love the felines too! Man, I miss my cat.

Pat Tillett said...

Rosemary - I understand that! I'm pretty good at ignoring them, but my wife, not so much!

Baby Sister - Thanks so much!

Jesse - It could be a disguise!

Jhon - Because there are plenty of them available!

John - It just might be! Have you seen him around lately?

Shrinky - thanks! Delicious for them anyway...

m. - thanks so much Michaela!

Miss Becky - Thanks so much! I'm not sure where they got them!

Eliza - Thanks so much for commenting!

Nevine - The one on the right always defers to the black one. I guess that's because she was the runt of her litter and the black one was feral at one time.

Sergio - Cat's are pretty much the same everywhere!

altadenahiker - She sure does look like it! A racoon that is attached to my wife whenever possible.

Brad - That is so funny! That never entered my mind, now I can't get the image out of it...

Stickup Artist - Yes I am! Thanks so much for the info...

Ann - They are really up against it over there right now. Earthquake, tsunami, volcano erupting, radiation, etc...

tapirgal - They sure are! thanks!

Megan - I'm a big time cat person... I'm sorry you don't yours anymore.
Nevine -

Awesome photo!

One Woman's Thoughts said...

Reminds me of a cartoon.

Cute.

Katsidhe said...

This is too perfect for words, Pat. Adorably beautiful.~

Also I meant to tell you what a sweet response you made on my comment a while back where I said that your poem struck a chord with me and your replied then we must be in tune. That really touched me, and I love that idea. ^_^

Anthony J Langford said...

haha - well observed Patty...

Francisca said...

An image with a story, for sure. Beautiful cats (and I'm not even a "cat" person...) :-D

TheChieftess said...
