Legend – Balancing Act

Thought For The Day
There are few things more heartwarming in life
Than to be welcomed by a cat.

Legend loves to startle me by jumping on the back of chairs (while I’m in them) to see how high he can make me jump! Today, I turned the tables on him and caught the wide-eyed prankster in action!

Farewell GFC – Hello Google Plus

    You really did catch Legend by surprise, great capture! I love his expression. Such a handsome kitty.

    Wow! My cat tried that once and shortly after realized that the char was way too light for her to balance. Has he ever fallen off before?

      My office chair swivels and the only time the poor cat has missed is when he was jumping (unbeknownst to me) and I turned the chair and we both caught each other off guard – not a pretty sight! My chair is full of claw marks as a result!

    My mom’s kitty loves doing that! She jump on the chair then whack us in the face with her wagging tail. LOL Thanks for the linky!

    I always wanted to have more balance like a cat!

      ME too! I used to have a cat that could balance on a thin (no more than an inch wide) rail – it was amazing! I had another one who used to find great joy in running around the tops of the ceiling pipes in a former basement! Sometimes I think they do things simply because they can!

  6. First of all, I LOVE this link thingy–it’s terrific that it shows a little picture!

    Second, I found you through Creative Every Day–I’m trying to get back in the studio after a bunch of personal stuff, and am absolutely with you on the idea of creating with joy! I wish we encouraged this more in the schools, but that’s a whole ‘nother rant…

    Third–I will absolutely post a picture I took, next time. My dad just passed away and this picture was tops in my mind.

    I just love looking at pictures of cats. Their faces sometimes have the funniest expressions. Beautiful cat.

    I love the way he’s looking at you, like “What?”

  9. Penni says:

    What a fabulous photo of Legend. He looks as if he is quite good at balancing!!! I have to say that it is definitely not one of Orion’s strong points!!!

    I love jumping on the backs of chairs too – maybe my human will capture that once she gets her office organized!

    We have 2 kitties and one of ours is a “balancer” too! Sweet picture.

  13. Paula J says:

    Cats are so sneaky it’s a riot when you catch them in the act lol. Surprise! They never expect it 🙂

    Thanks for hosting WW!!


  14. LadyD says:

    I can’t believe tomorrow is March 1st! I especially like your cats name, very ‘commanding’ presence! Happy WW!

  15. Funny!! Life with cats is always a three-ring circus!!

    Gosh almighty! I know he deserves “kudos” for the balancing act, but I just can’t get over HOW HANDSOME HE IS!…:)

      Thank you so much! You should see him when he’s really hamming it up! I really caught him off guard because I’ve never jumped out of my chair and started taking his photos like this before! 🙂

    What a talent…and handsome as well!

  18. Annie says:

    Such a pretty kitty!! I had no idea linky had a followers widget. That’s pretty nifty! See you around 🙂

      Hi Annie

      The Linky Followers Widget is new – it was launched at the beginning of February in response to request from several Mom Bloggers for a replacement for GFC that allowed them to follow blogs in a convenient way (without having the social connectivity that Facebook and Google Plus requires!) It’s nice and gathering steam fast – hope you try it out!

      You can get a lot of info on how it works by doing a search on it – a lot of the moms involved in the development have written extensively about it! 🙂

    Your cats cracks me up. So expressive. Love to see your photos. I’m doing an artwork giveaway. Hope you can join in the fun. God bless.

  21. Marcie says:

    Kitty doesn’t quite look like he wanted his picture taken!

    Thankfully I don’t have to worry about GFC quite yet. I haven’t joined Google Plus yet.

    Linked up, Happy Wordless Wednesday and Happy Leap Day, hope you did something fun with this extra day of the year!
