Great list! Happy TT.

And you know, many of those statements could be applied to my dogs as well...

Blue Momma said...

those were great! My cats? All 13!

Gattina said...

I fully agree THIS is the truth about cats ! The poor things are very often misunderstood, lol !

Dragonheart said...

That is a wonderful list! :) What a cute Sphynx kitty photo. :) Of course, we Sphynx don't shed, and we usually aren't fat because we have fast metabolisms to help keep us warm! :) I really enjoyed your list!

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

AHHHH such a sweet kitten! Hairless like Drake! That was a very good list:)
Purrrrsw Miss Peach

LOL, I am also very often motivationally challenged. ;o)
Great list, and funilly, all these apply to my dog s well. Maybe she really got born again in the wrong body or something...
Nice to see you use one of my headers. :o)

Gledwood said...

wow what amazing music (was) coming through my headphones... now stopped bc I'm on this commentary page... Hi Gracie! I've just found you are NOT in my links.. I used to come by every week on that random blog button, which i was writing about tonight... they've gone and "updated" it so badly it doesn't work any more to just press and randomly get to a blog you don't know... that is what I call progress in the modern world... Hey I gave you a shout ~~ wahey!!

Sanni said...

I didn´t play this week and we are not owned by a cat - but your TT is so cute I hd to come over and let you know!

It's a FLIP-FLOP World said...

G'day from Australia,

Thanks for visiting me, Grace - and thank you for your very kind words of praise.

I've enjoyed my first brief visit here but I'll be back.

At the moment, I'm into the final stages of my second novel, so I might not be the most regular visitor for a while.

Do keep in touch

David

Danielle said...

LOL That's a cute list!

I used to have a cat that was catnip appreciative. Then he would run through the house helping gravity do its job where ever he went :-)

Random Magus said...

This was so cute. I have added you to my Thursday 13 link.

Jeni said...

Sounds about like my house which is ruled - alternately -by our two cats - Gracie, the elder and Nina, the young. One lazy now, and a bit senile too -after 16 years attending to a family, that wears a cat down you know and the younger is a little spitfire, always on the move, looking for other things to explore.
Great TT, Gracie!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

One of my cats is sitting here, front paws on the edge of my keyboard, nodding agreement. Especially about the rug redecorator...

Love the picture of the sphynx!

Travis said...

Mass enhanced! I love that! That's definietly Mr Tucker.
