I am worshipped

The mighty Fang has taken to sitting in my lap and gazing up into my eyes with a worshipfull expression on his furry little kitty face. Well, big kitty face - he's 18 pounds, after all! Yes, quite a lapfull, his butt is over thin air on one side and his paws are over thin air on the other.

I find it somewhat disconcerting. Most cats want you to worship them, not the other way around. If I wanted to be worshipped, I would get a dog.

Of course, it might just be that he's purring because he's thinking about what a nice meal I'd be...

Badtux the "What's for dinner" Penguin


  1. Now, that's one BIG shiny healthy handsome kitty!

  2. As big as he is I would not be surprised if he is not thinking of eating you. I would be very careful while sleeping. ;-)

  3. Most cats choose not to love their humans. Many cats only show affection when they want feeding. To have one that just sits and loves you is a Very Special Thing. (Of the three that own me, one is like that. I consider myself extremely lucky.)


  4. What a beautiful coat. I bet he could make some dandy fine gloves! Have you ever thought about showing him how to crochet. It would give him something to do while you're at work or sleeping and you'd have some great gloves for winter.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
