Wordless Wednesday – Scrutiny

Legend - Scrutiny

Thought For The Day
Cats can work out mathematically
The exact place to sit
That will cause most inconvenience.

Legend – Scrutiny

This week, while Prince Charming was sorting vitamins,
Legend came to scrutinize his work.

Legend is fascinated with pills and vitamins.
He thinks that they are tiny little toys for him to bat around!

We have to be extra careful when we are working with them,
Because he will frequently appear out of nowhere,
Feign disinterest,

Then slowly inch his way towards them and
When he things we aren’t looking,
Try to sneak a few under his paw
For his later amusement!

As you can see
There is never a dull moment
When Legend is around!

    Dogs like to trip you when you walk by getting right under your feet.

  7. Rebecca says:

    I wonder if you have a pill with powder inside…if you can empty the powder out and put the pill back together and let him play with the empty pill. He’s a beautiful kitty.

  8. Parent Club says:

    Lovely pic. Thanks for hosting.

    Probably wondering why we take so many little pills.

    Oh my! They can be really sneaky can’t they. My Storm would take one look at that pile and try to eat them all. Sigh…we have to be very careful around her and pills…she seems to think they’ll taste like bug.

      Hmmm… never thought of it that way! I know I always freak out when I drop a pill on the floor for fear that if I don’t find it – the cats will and will gobble it right up!

    He really is staring pretty hard! Has he managed to swallow any yet??

    • Create With Joy
      Twitter: CreateWithJoy1

      Not that I know of! I do my best to guard my cats like a hawk – I am assuming he hasn’t swallowed anything behind my back as he hasn’t developed any mysterious illnesses!

  17. Sarah says:

    This would make me so nervous. I’m always worried my son or one of my dogs will stumble upon a pill somewhere. I guess cats know not to eat them?

    • Create With Joy
      Twitter: CreateWithJoy1

      No, we REALLY have to watch that they don’t get a hold of them – we usually end up putting them down when we are sorting to be safe but my husband throught he’d take a few photos first this week!

      (Cats are like little kids – given half a chance they will put ANYTHING in their mouths – so you REALLY have to be good parents and keep a supervisory eye on them at ALL times!)

  18. Summer says:

    Cool shot! I hope he didn’t eat them up secretly! =)

  19. Rae says:

    Legend is just beautiful. What a sneaky kitty! 🙂

  20. Legend, what big paws you have … “All the better to steal your pills with , my dear” .His is a common habit among felines … little things that wobble when you bat them and that have the potential of tasting good. That is the part you have to be careful with … the tasting good, could be a serious problem. But, I know you watch your babies, so I am not worried …

      One of the things my doctor “prescribes” for me is fish oil (I use it in quotes because it is not a prescription, per se, but I am supposed to take it for health reasons.)

      I just received a new brand of fish oil pills in the mail and opened the bottle to try the pills.

      I could not believe it, but the MOMENT I opened the bottles, Legend (or should I say, MISTER NOSE) was right at that bottle, sniffing around and trying to pke his nose inside to see what treat I was planning to share with HIM! (I wonder if he finds likes the smell of these pills… I can tell you I don’t… but you would think there were cat treats in the bottle the way he was trying to get at them!

      I find it funny that animals actually are smart enough to try to steal and hide things. I had a dog who used to try to chew on things he wasn’t supposed to right under our noses (while sweetly sitting at our feet) – then cover his misdeeds with his paws!

  21. just say no kitty…just say no!

    Legend is certainly fascinated by these tablets! Thanks for hosting.

  23. I’d be worried that he mights swallow something if it broke open, though I know how difficult it can be to medicate a cat deliberately.

      Isn’t it funny how, when you NEED to medicate them, it is IMPOSSIBLE to get them to swallow their pills and med, but when you DON’T want them to touch something, it takes an army to keep them away from your stuff?!

  24. Carolyn says:

    Hey Girl! I don’t think I’ve said “hello” in a few weeks. =P I look for you first on w/w! Hope you are having a great week, and I adore all the pictures of your sweet kitties!!

      Look forward to catching up with you 1 on 1 soon! 🙂

  25. DinoMama says:

    Cats! They do the darnest things!

  26. Paula J says:

    I wish I could get inside a cat’s mind for just a day 🙂

    Happy WW!

  27. Cute! My parents cat is like that too.

  28. carmen says:

  31. Brandi says:

    Such a curious kitty!! Just making sure everything is in order I’m sure hehe 🙂

  32. Xmasdolly says:

    Thanks for the linky. Now that Cat is just too funny! I wish I would’ve known your Cat when I use to work for food and drug lawyers. We told vitamin companies what they can and cannot say on their labels. If I had your kitty maybe he could’ve made life simpler for me. LOL

  33. Romina says:

    Wow, look at that focus. He must really love those pills.

  34. Mirjam says:

    Cats always focus 100% on the task at hand. I love the way he is observing those pills, deciding if one of them is a good candidate for a game of chase!

  35. Henrietta says:

    Legend sounds like a very amusing kitty!

  36. Emilee says:

    His facial expression is priceless!

    My human is just too good at keeping me away from her vitamins – I would LOVE to scatter them across the floor!

    The “thought of the day” with this post is spot on! My cat’s favorite spot to lay down is directly on my morning newspaper…lol! As usual love, love, love the photo of Legend. Happy WW! =)

  39. Ahhh….to a dog you are family….to a cat you are staff! My favorite cat quote…Your cat is fab! We have just brought Marvelous Marv to our house…a 9 week old kitten who promises to have personality galore! In fact that is why I am up before 5AM…some little kitty wanted to play!

  40. Flora says:

    That’s a beautiful cat! Our girl loves to stalk us when we’re opening bottles of scented household cleansers. 😀

  41. Kate says:

    They find the most unusual amusements don’t they.

  42. That is absolutely true about the quote!

  43. Cats do have a tendency to stealthily infringe on what their two-leggers are doing, don’t they? 😉 Legend is such a gorgeous (and smart) cat! 🙂

    Thank you for hosting my friend. Look at all these wonderful blogs! xo

  45. Loved the quote! I think I would be wealthy if I got a dollar for every time one of my cats sat somewhere that caused inconvenience to me! Of course, I would never, ever think to move them…

  46. Jennifer says:

    it looks like she’s counting them lol

  47. jet says:

    Hey Legend, Hey Prince Charming, Jet here.

    Puffy and Fluffy, my feline brothers enjoy similar inconvenient locations. They like to bat about Mom’s pens!

  48. Natalie Z says:

    cats always find the oddest things to amuse them 😉 Thanks for sharing!
