he does not like it much...

Okay Banjo, I won't tell her you really do like it!

Sandra said...

love the pics even if Banjo did not like having them taken.. He is a beautiful kitty for sure... great shots to. i am still dancing to the music, thanks for the inspiration.

Fuzzy Tales said...

LOL! Poor Banjo. Derry likes to be picked up and cuddled, I walk around with him in my arms or rock him like a baby. Nicki--he'll tolerate being picked up only for a moment or two. :-)

Deb said...

Oh my goodness, that's funny. I could see him shooting straight up any moment.

Crafting Queen said...

THat looks so much like when I try to give Skipper a cuddle!! LOL
Have a great day both of you. :)

Maggie from Stillness at Cherith said...

Banjo does NOT look too happy =)
Ungrateful feline!
(Our Winston kitty is the same way)

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Ha-ha! Jingles is the same way. She only wants cuddles on her own terms. And if Zack puts his head towards her when she is sitting with him, she will bite his forehead.

As for the cookies, I have a gas oven so never know what the temperature is. I would imagine 350 would be good for 10 minutes or so. Just until they are set and golden on the bottom. I usually know when things are done because they start to smelling really good. :)

Have a great day. Tammy

Dearest Catherine,
That's typical CAT! We are their servants and not the other way around...
Hugs,
Mariette

My Vickie insists on doing that too. Sometimes it is a pain, but most the time I like it.

How funny! That looks like Coco when I try and hold her. The problem is the only time I hold her is when it's flea medicine time.

Sylvia said...

Aw...you're too cute Banjo! I would want smooches and loves from you too! Great captures!

Ann said...

Aw Banjo, mom can't help giving you hugs and smooches, you are just too adorable

SweetMarie said...

this is too cute! the expressions on his face are priceless!

Heather said...

Ha...I've had kitties like that... hate being cuddled... but I think there is a compulsion in us that just makes us want to try anyway... little devils! Cheers~

It's me said...

Owww so so so sweeeeeeeeeeeeet Banjo !!!...xxx...

Tamago said...

LOL! I do that, too and often being kicked! Banjo it's so sweet to let you force cuddling. Hehehe :-)

Mary said...

But he looks irresistibly cuddly, so you can't help yourself! :) What a sweetie. But you're right, he looks a little like he's looking for the eject button. :D

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Oh that's too funny.

Do you know that until sometime last year, the Boo wouldn't be a lap kitty. Then one day he jumped into my husbands lap, and that was it.

Cuddle kitty, lap kitty, hold me sideways, no upside down for me kind of kitty. Still not into perching on shoulders..but he's come a long, long way.

Banjo is adorable...

Oh, and I checked with human resources....nope spring is not coming this year...just kidding.

Jen

Chatty Crone said...

Awe he looks pretty happy to me! sandie

Eileen said...

Banjo is such a .....cat! Saku is much like that too, when he wants loving, it has to be right now, but when he doesn't the look on his face says it all!

Lin said...

Thank you for posting that because that is EXACTLY how my two act when I'm passing out the smoochies. What is with them??! Their sole job is to love us. That's IT. And still, it's too much to ask. Sheesh.

Betsy Adams said...

OH --he loves it... BUT he remembers he is a CAT and shouldn't act like he's enjoying it... ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Linda R said...

Too cute.. I love to do the same thing to my cat.. She so old now she doesn't even fight it anymore..

Hugs~

Katy Noelle said...

My mind just scattered in all different directions with this!

First, I thought how beautiful you are.... but that was quickly interrupted by a minute of straight out very loud laughin! Banjo's face.... heeeheeeheeee!

Then, I started thinking how beautiful the tones are in these!

Then, I stopped to just wonder... how did you do this? Assistant pressing the shutter button?

But, ultimately think, "the two of you!!!"

Love to you!

Sorry I've been so silent and absent lately! I've been in a very, very good think-tank! I'll be back later, though, to catch up - wouldn't miss it - not a thing! =]

xxo

Madge Bloom said...

Oh, gosh you mean your kitty Banjo is like my Gelly... sometimes I think I hear her under her breathe, 'Geez lady will ya just let go already??!'

Carolynn Anctil said...

LOL...next time, try eating some tuna first. *wink*

Hot Rocks said...

What is it with cats? I do the same cuddling with my cat, and he has that same look of "get me outta here" on his face too! However...he loves to be petted, and have attention.

Janet Blue said...

Oh my…some of us are just like that. MOL from us and LOL from Mom. Sometimes you just got to give it a try. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at www.thecatonmyhead.com, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Susan said...

Oh animals, especially cats. They sure like when THEY want it! You are awesome Cat! You can hug me anytime!

Kerri said...

Banjo is like my Babie...not the cuddly type! Oh well we just squeeze them harder when we get the chance! Purr-Zzzz

Splendid Little Stars said...
