Carnival of the Cats #214
It's time to celebrate the Carnival of the Cats, and this week we've got a lot to celebrate. That's why I've got my beads and mask all ready!
First of all, Happy 2nd Birthday to Audace and Ruse. Leaf through the family album at Momma Grace and Company, and then help them open their presents.
And Happy 3rd Birthday to Delilah, whose BIG Birthday Adventure unfolds at Dr. Tweety's blog. What a brave cat she is!
For Vincent and Mike, it's birthday number one. They say Happy Birfday To Us! and show off their fabulous present.
Meanwhile, at Wine on the Keyboard, the story of Pink and Green unfolds, proving that it takes a family to raise a couple of handsome, happy felines. (A sense of humor helps, too!)
We don't know exactly what they're celebrating at The Poor Mouth, but it looks like several of the celebrants are already deep in their cups.
At Tacjammer, a lot of fur has been flying, which oddly seems to make the humans shout with joy. And before long, it seems there'll be a lot more fur Incoming in this household.
But it doesn't take much to make some felines happy: Miss Abby of Manx Mnews is just glad it's Finally Friday.
At The Scratching Post, K T Cat demonstrates the perfect work ethic. You'd purr too if you had this job!
By the way, have you ever wondered Why do cats purr? Why not ask an expert at HowDoWhy?
The power of positive thinking seems to be right up Henry's alley at Texas Oasis.
Lest we forget that more than one cat is running for President, Cato weighs in with some thoughts on Presidential Peep Toes. No, no no! I am NOT making this up: the candidate did.
Meeyaow offers new verses from the LOL Cat Bible. Ceiling cat, where art thou?
Mog's been busy this week with cat sightings on multiple blogs: Tuxie Tuesday; Flowers And Cats; Flowers And Cat; Meowza is On the lookout; but now we're Done!
At Chickens in the Road, everyone is jubilant about Finding Sugar.
What do cats do when their humans leave the house? Dolphin has the evidence on Feline Friday. (Psst! Some of us don't wait for the humans to leave.)
Did anyone else feel the earthquake in the U.S. Midwest on Friday? Composite Drawlings says Peanut kept cool. But Rocky reports that the crew at Artsy Catsy was pretty shook up.
Earthquakes are nothing, though, compared with another story reported by the Artsy Catsy humans. An Indiana cat-rescue operator is in big trouble. Learn how you can help them at URGENT HELP STILL NEEDED!.
And now for something completely different: a video of The Curiously Awesome Cat Man posted at the curiously named Vat19.com slash Blog.
Some lucky cats get to enjoy A Day Out in the Sun at Nanashi-Inc.
Parker sums up his philosophy in One, Er, Ah, Two Word Wednesday.
Catsynth contrasts the lovely Luna and Geometry.
At No Deep Thoughts, there's a Mystery Kitten.
Sisu weighs in on Pope Benedict's recent visit, illustrated with gorgeous feline pictures: "To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak"; Mugged by Pope Benedict XVI; and George W. Bush, our first Catholic president?.

On the other hand, if your idea of perfection is more like a sunny napping place, check out This, That and the Other Thing for Sunday Morning: Sunshine.
Willow also is enjoying a sunny Sunday: Look What I Found.
Apparently China Cat agrees, the best thing in the world is My Purr Pad in the Sunshine.
And now for the big finish: via my human niece Lee, here's a helpful video for clueless cat-owning geeks: the Engineer's Guide to Cats.

What's for dinner?
I wouldn't want to miss dinner time. So, I am occupying the place mats and, while I wait, I thought I'd wash my face and paws.
Check out today's Friday Ark at Modulator, and on Sunday, the Carnival of the Cats will be at M-Cats Club!

The well-trained human
After I complained loudly about the pile of snow and ice between the door and my back yard, my male human went out and shoveled a path. It's still sort of cold and slushy, but at least my feet don't sink in up to my belly. I think I've got him trained!
By the way, for those of you who are wondering how there can still be snow here: first, it's Minnesota; second, my back door faces North, and so the steps and patio nearest the house are always in the shade.
Check out the latest Friday Ark at Modulator and the Carnival of the Cats today at CatSynth.

Into the light
And this is what I had to put up with!
But when I finally reached the sunny patio, it was worth it.
Am I not the biggest, bravest cat in my neighborhood?
