Tales of Maddie Black

...or should it be tails, mateys? Yaar and avast, lubber scum! Lock up your vittles and guard your vitals, or Maddie the Pirate--

Well, enough of that. Apparently you humans recently observed something called Talk Like a Pirate Day. I'm sorry to say the things you do to amuse yourselves can be rather stupid.

Which is not to say I don't indulge myself in a bit of piracy now and then. If Macks and Deer are so incautious as to leave delicious baked goods unattended it's only right and natural that I invoke the right of salvage and claim them for myself!

Pita in a lunchbag? Mine to plunder! Bread in the cupboard? I'll take carbohydrates over pieces of eight! I am Black Maddie, Queen of the Counter-Top!

Speaking of which...

From Maddie:
Speaking of favorite sleeping spots, I thought I'd share our current favorites with you! Probably our most favorite spots is anywhere we can make a cat pile! On top of the couch cushions... or nestled in the corner of a chair... If we do opt to a go solo, I - being a traditionalist - go for the tried and true, such as the ever-popular office chair: However, I think I should get some style points for my superb paw placement! Washie is just weird. His latest favorite is on top of our scratching board toy that we got for Christmas last year! Whatever, Washie!

We are very lucky kitties. Not only do we have lots of fun toys, good yummies, and a bunch of wonderful napping spots, but we have two very special Poppas!

Happy Poppa's Day! We luvs on you lots!

Reading is fun!

First things first!

From Maddie:

For some reason or another, I wasn't having too much luck Tweeting and on Facebook. Then it hit me...I'd probably do a lot better if I could understand what all of those goofy little symbols on the screen meant! I think it's call wreeding...or maybe, reading? I dunno...I'm not too good spelling yet, either!

I started out nice and slow with some very pretty books with pictures of big Kats in them!

Now, I'm on to books with the symbols in them. I can never remember, though, if you wreed the symbols from left to right, or from top to bottom! This is very confusing to me. I think I need some comfort food.

Bonus Adventure!

It seems Macks has featured us at his own web domain, Malevolent & Benign. We don't recall granting permission to use our lovely mugs to give color and interest to his otherwise drab site, but this once we'll allow it. Click the image below for more.

Somebody's been sitting in my chair...

From Maddie:
I was looking forward to some lazy Sunday morning Tweeting, when I noticed that someone was in my usual spot. At first glance, it looked like my Dumb Brother hogging the office chair again. But, wait a minute, Washie doesn't have white pawz....


Could it be Seattle/Chicago Beastie?

Another Beastie altogether? Were Deer and Macks trying to tell us something by inviting another Kat into OUR home? Didn't they love us anymore? Pass me the tissue and some comfort food...

Upon further inspection, none of the above disastrous scenarios were true. With her pretty string and sticks, Deer actually knitted said Beastie for the daughter of her wonderful boss:

Still, we had to make to sure. It really did look like Washie.

Whew! This Beastie definitely wasn't a threat and it went to its new home during the little girl's birthday party today. So, I'll pass on the tissue and the comfort food...well, maybe I'll take a little comfort food just in case...
