Wordless Wednesday – The Stare

Legend - The Stare

Legend – The Stare

Thought For The Day
When addressed,
A gentleman cat does not move a muscle.
He looks as if he hasn’t heard.
Mary Sarton

This week I am designing my creative space.
In my previous home,
Legend loved to hang out in the Paper Palace.
Now, it appears that Legend’s favorite spot is
The Creative Corner!

Every day, he saunters to the best seat in the studio –
A window perch where he can see what’s happening in the world!

Already he is making new friends in the neighborhood.
One day, a hummingbird flew right up to Legend and
Hovered in front of his nose to say hello!

Legend is a sweet companion by day…
But when night rolls around,
Mister Naughty Pants likes to rear his mighty head!

Mister Naughty Pants does not like being told what to do.
He does not like being asked to leave his favorite hot spot.
He believes he deserves an all night pass to Studio 54!

So, when I announce to Legend that it’s time to go,
By some innate process I do not understand,
Legend undergoes a radical transformation and
Morphs into Mister Naughty Pants!

All of a sudden my sweet cat
Becomes hard of hearing…
Glares at me defiantly…
Quizzically trills at me as if he doesn’t know what I want…
Curls into a cute kitty ball and hunkers down…
Runs around the room in amusement as I try to shoo him out!

In the end I prevail…
But I can’t help but feel that Mister Naughty Pants
Is planning some devious strategy behind
The stare!

    Oh that Mr. Naughty Pants! I love the stare and the story! Thanks for the sweet share- so love your boys! Not sure I will link today but will catch up at the end of the week. Pressing on with the 31 days- it is quite the challenge! Blessings to you in your new creative space. Hugs to the boys! Especially from Ashley and Aurora (My girls!)- Dawn

      Kudos to you for that 31 day challenge!

      I JUST looked out the window (where Legend is hanging out) and noticed, for the first time, that one of my neighbors has a cat…
      A pretty red and white kitty is sitting looking at us from another window!

      I don’t know if Legend has noticed or not, but that is just another reason to make sure the boys stay supervised at all times!

        Oh my! Do the boys go outside? My girls are indoor only. Hmmmm. They might be jealous of the new hottie on the scene! lol- BTW Love the tea picture with the bear! Can’t wait to see your space when it’s satisfactory to you!

      • Create With Joy
        Twitter: CreateWithJoy1

        No, my boys are strictly indoor cats too! The reason they are not allowed in my room unsupervisd is that it is on an upper level and they like to lie in the windows and lean against the screens (Maine Coons are cold weather cats… we do not live in Maine!) I am terrified of them pressing against the screen and falling out (they are HEAVY!) In our previous place, Tsunami actually knocked the screen out partially but thankfully did not go through and I caught him in time. I try to break them of the screen-leaning habits but they are like kids… the moment you turn your back, even if for a moment, and turn around again… they are doing something to make your heart skip a beat!

        I thought of your kitties and how jealous they would be when they heard about the new neighbor! This is the first cat I’ve seen since I’ve been here. We live in dogland – most of our neighbors have multiple dogs!

        Don’t worry, though, Legend and Tsunami are QUITE loyal! 🙂

  24. Susan says:

    Wow…what a beautiful cat!!

  25. Mimi says:

    I feel like he’s staring right through me. hahahahaha He looks hypnotized!

  26. A very lionesque stare he’s got.

  27. debra says:

    That kitty is a beauty for sure and your story is funny as can be….my kitty is on the windowsill watching the critters and birds for most of the day as well! 🙂

  28. Charlotte says:

    He looks scary this week. Thanks for linking up, I have done the same.

  29. Kate says:

    Very intense indeed. Love the story and the new nick name.

    Cats can stare a hole through you, I think. I remember one time house sitting my BIL & his wife one summer, waking up to Mischief (their very hateful kitty) staring down on me like a Vulture. I was certain if I had not woken up she would have gone for my throat in my sleep. So creepy! Thanks for hosting.

      Ah, Mischief… that name says it all!

      My sister had a black cat named Midnight that hated men. She dubbed it her attack cat. Made her dating life VERY difficult for the longest time!

      Have a wonderful week!

    Naughty Mr. Naughty Pants! I never can disturb a cute little cat all curled up in a ball sound asleep!

  32. Lori says:

    How amazing that you were able to capture that “stare” so well in a photo–amazing job! Thank you for hosting…Lori

  33. xoCATox says:

    Wonder how long he can go without blinking? 🙂

  34. funthreads says:

    Hahaha. We had a cat that would stand up and turn his butt to you when you talked to him. When you finished talking to him he would turn around and lay back down. Cats! LOL

    Good morning Ramona – linked up to my WW post, and now I’m off to visit some of the other participants. Thanks so much for this fun blog hop . . . .it is truly one that I look forward to every week. Have a blessed and joyous Wednesday, my friend! BIG Hugs, Nina

  36. One could interpret that stare in many ways, but I think you are right … Mr.Naughty Pants is thinking of ways to avenge your insensitive ejection from “his” room. He looks very serious about it too … I would be concerned. Watch your back!

      Hi Andrea,

      Legend often comes up and taps me on the shoulder, back and leg while I am at the computer. At least I have thought it was him seeking attention. Now your comment has me wondering… maybe it is Mister Naughty Pants seeking his revenge for those late night evictions! 🙂

      Have a great day!

  37. Crystal C says:

    Too much of a beauty to be a beast. 🙂
