Jake and Bathsheba

A blog by two cats who used to live in the same house in Northern Virginia. Unfortunately, they are both no longer with us.

Jake's Mr. Litterbox Entry

I REALLY wanted to enter Zeus's Mr. Litterbox competition, but I wasn't sure if I could qualify. I don't have any evening wear since I wear the same fur coat everywhere. (And my secretary, Mom, doesn't have Photoshop. Sigh.) As for strength and form, I wasn't sure how to depict that. My greatest talent is getting Mom and Dad to serve my every need. However, I am pretty good with a crinkle ball,and I thought that this could also serve as a talent.
Talent Entry:

Here I caught a crinkle ball that Mom threw to me. She also thinks it's a talent to sit up on two legs like a human, but I hope you cats don't deduct points for that!
I know the competition is fierce, but it's fun just to participate.

Jake, we need more tabbies in the Mr Litterbox competition. I fink you should enter.
Tell Bathsheba she can do the meme by copying it and pasting it into a new post, then changing the answers to better suit her. Also, since it's long, you can skip any questions that just don't werk for you.

Hi Jake, I'm a friend of Daisymae Maus. I'm impressed with your crinkle ball moves and dexterity.

I agree with Phoebe, but I'm a tad biases ... Meow!

You look furry sexy on that sarapé, Jake!

It's an excellent talent--and you look at you on uneven footing. I have to admit though, the competition for this one will be fierce!

that's an excellent talent - especially in that position!

you're right, we do have some catching up to do. our Secretary was unable to help us blog, read blogs, or leave comments, for several days in a row now. plus, when she wasn't busy doing all that stuff that's not nearly as important as blogging, she was torturing us with clipping, medicine and new foods. it turns out that we really love the Science Diet crunchies for itchy sensitive skin. anyway, about the 3:01 AM...we started doing that with old blogger because we found that it would show "blog updated" on the different services in most of the time zones, so we'd just set it to that no matter what time we posted. we're not sure that it works anymore with new blogger, but it's gotten to be kind of a habit. purrs!

Great talent entry, Jake. It definitely takes talent to catch a ball while sitting like that. The humans sure love to see us sitting like them. I can't figure why they do that, though. It's so uncomfortable. They need to learn to curl up like us cats instead.

You are a very talented kitty!

I know how you feel, Mom doesn't have photoshope either, so its hard to enter these and be competitive. But some of the cheapy stuff works pretty well too.

Mom is a member of the California Native Plant society. It is cool your mom belongs to the Virginia version!
