An Afternoon of Banjo

"Is that the electric mixer I hear?"

"What you making mom?"

"Nom nom nom... mmmm...
strawberry mousse...
like mouse...
only it's not."

"Oops... sorry about that...
got a little on the camera... here...
let me get that for you."

"More mousse please."

"GAAAAK!!! Mom's vacuuming!
I will assume the position and
give the vacuum my scary stare..."

"Maybe I will throw in a
growl with my airplane ears.
A little hissing never hurt..."

"All that evil staring,
growling and hissing
works up a kitty's appetite."

"Now a refreshing drink from my
water fountain. mmmm....
that's good stuff."

"Are you going to follow me around
with that camera all day mother?"

"You want a close up? I'll give you a close up!
How's this?"

"OK... I've had enough of you now.
Please leave. It's snoozy time."

Have a good snooze Banjo.

Deb said...

That tongue picture cracked me up. I guess it can be annoying being followed around with a camera but I wouldn't know...no one bothers. I would be flattered, Banjo. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

Oh My... that sweet Banjo..... I'm sure he was exhausted after that camera lady kept following him around... But I do have a questions for Banjo???? Why did YOU not help Mom with the vacuuming???? I'm sure she could use some help..... ha ha

Cats are deathly afraid of vacuums, aren't they????? ha... Read a cute cat quote today.... Have you heard this one?

The problem with cats is that they get the exact same look on their face whether they see a moth or an axe-murderer. ~Paula Poundstone

Made me laugh outloud.
Hugs,
Betsy

What a good life you lead, Banjo!!

We call those "yoda ears" around here and yes, the vacuum tends to make our kitties do that too!

Tamago said...

Did you enjoy your mousse, Banjo? I love your close-up photos!
I also like your photo with airplane ears :-) One of my boys hates vacuum machine, too. He does not growl, though. He just disappear. I hope someone will make a vacuum with no noise some day...!

The Island Cats said...

We think some strawberry mouse would be good!! And we hate that rug sucking monster too!!

Sandra said...

Yes, that cat does deserve a nap after all that activity, what with licking the mouse off the camera, making faces at the vacuum cleaner, keeping watch on the banister...sheesh..

Jen said...

Fun post (gotta love those airplane ears ;o)

ratieh said...

as always, i love your pictures. i love Banjo too! ^^

Katy Noelle said...

A day in the life of banjo (delivered with your usual panache)! I've been wondering why cat photos are so fascinating. If one pops up on the photography forum, I stare and stare - especially at the closeups. I took some wonderful photos of the dogs, yesterday, but they're not just the same - great, but, not the same.

Jaime said...

lol..I love Banjo posts..they make me laugh. Does he really hiss at the vacuum? My bunny tries to attack and growl at the vacuum. Actually, he hasn't done that for a while, but when I bring out the broom, it's war.
