The One-Armed Hand!

Kitties!

Our Daddy is a nut.

Really!

He brought home a mannequin arm the other day.  How many people do you know see an arm and think "I could have some fun with that"?  Would that be NONE?

We thought so, too.

Mommy thought it was creepy.
So Daddy balanced it on the kettle, where it scared the bejeebers outta her in the morning!

But that's not all: 
He started doing other...erm, "stuff" with it.

He gave it a name:  "The One-Armed Hand". 

He took more pictures:
Sneaking up on Puffy Cat!

Aaauuuuugggghhhhhh!
The One-Armed Hand is eating Felix's face!!

Whew.  He escaped.
What's all the commotion about this thing?

It smells lip-lickin' good!

Daddy's creativity slipped into weird gear... 
Salem:  ::sniff sniff::
Sweet Pea:  What in the name of Cod is this contraption?

Salem:  The One-Armed Hand DOES smell good.
Sweet Pea:  I'm OUT of here.  That thing is just plain wrong.

The Arm decided to do some work.
Good thing it doesn't have a nose!

Too bad for the Laughing Dude, he does!

Grayce cuddled up to the Arm, but it left her cold.

Sweet Pea wondered if she should bite the hand feeding her.

Since it wouldn't scream, she concentrated on the treats.

And, once again, Felix was unimpressed.

So, is Daddy crazypants or what?

Happy Monday!

  1. that's pretty weird! Hopefully he doesn't make a lamp out of it, like the leg lamp in the Christmas Story.

    surest way to get the hand to go bye bye is to pee on it!

  2. OMC! Mom is laughing so much I think she might be a little bit crazy too!

    Something about the "thing" scooping the litter pool....

    Yes your daddy is crazypants! In a good way.

    Purrs,

  5. Yeah the Woman is laughing. I do have to say we liked it scooping the litter as well. However, the arm in the boxes, creeped the Woman out a little thinking about what she would think if she came upon it at night... in the dark... not expecting it...

  6. Your Daddy is very weird, but packs and posts a good parcel so he's still our hero.

  7. Never a dull moment at the Katnip Lounge, is there? tell your Mom not to walk around the house at night without turning a light on!

    ReplyDelete
  8. We think it's especially weird because it's so....muscular and stuff. Also, it has a weird injury on its middle finger. Was that from Grayce?

    We think it might be the arm of the man who killed Dr. Richard Kimble's wife.

  9. MOL we love crazypants dads and moms!

  10. Daddy has clearly gone bonkers. Kindly anchor him in a chair with a large rum and coke, and keep topping it up until he calms down :-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. And I thought MY human was strange!

    ReplyDelete
  12. LOL! This is hilarious! Although, I'm with Sweet Pea too. It's so wrong.

    There's definitely never dull moment at the Lounge! Crazypants are always fun!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, if it's giving you treats, it can't be all that freaky. Actually, sometimes all Pisi thinks her human is is a device for transporting arms.

    ReplyDelete
  14. As if there wasn't enough excitement in a house with 13 cats your daddy brings home an arm? He is certainly a crazypants but he is pretty funny!

    ReplyDelete
  15. AWESOME! Major jealousy over here at thekittenpile! (from the hoomans... the cats could care less... :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Your daddy has some disturbing resemblance to the Rumblemum... she too would have hours and hours of amusement with a disembodied arm...

  23. Katnip Loungers,

  24. First , when I saw a mannequin arm, I think it's pretty creepy but the last bit when a mannequin arm turn to be a wicked food bowl.. I think that's pretty cool..MOL

    Miss Salem, you should kiss me instead * Lift nose waiting for sweet kiss *

  25. It looks like you're all a little crazypants to us. George and Gracie

  26. good scene,.. your are creative using the sculpture and picture....
    nice

    ReplyDelete
  27. OMC! First stew pots, now single arms? Run, friends, run! Don't bite the hand that feeds you... Don't come anywhere near it! If you don't know the story of Hansel and Gretal, perhaps you'd better read it... They're fattening you up! Isn't it too coincidental? First the new kibble to get you eating loads, then the toys to lull you into a false sense of security, now the hand! I'm sorry, friends, but it all adds up to only one thing! I'll hide you here. As long as you wear a bell, my human'll never know there's more of you! There are some advantages to her having broken eyes, after all. Incidentally, she too is laughing her asterisk off and says to tell your crazypants daddy thank you, cuz that's just what she needed today. I say tell him nothing, as you'd have to get close to him to do it, and that's zactly what he wants!

  28. Initially I read this with a certain amount of detachment, but then I saw there was no 'arm in it! Geddit?

    I spluttered all over my weetibangs. Thanks for that :D

    Have a great week The House of Crazypants! x

    ReplyDelete
  29. Crazypants ? Absolutely!! But we love crazypants, its fun as long as its 'armless . . . .lol

    If forewarned is forearmed, just think how much notice five arms give!

  43. Being home all day with you cats isn't driving him crazypants is it?

    This is THE BEST post we have seen in a long time, and gave mom a laugh out loud start to the day. Much needed as she has had that dreaded "D" word hanging over her head that your mom knows so much about. Thank you!

  44. Whoa, that's downright puckish...I thought about the leg-lamp thing too! You guys are too much fun!

  48. You definitely have one crazy pants living there with you but what fun to have an arm around as long as it isn't really around you. Put some catnip on it and see what happens. The possibilities are endless. If you could just teach it to scratch the kitties, it would be very useful.Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  49. *snort*

    This is totally something we would do. You've met Manny the Meerkat, right? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  50. Maybe your Dad thought he needed an extra hand taking care of the gang!

    ReplyDelete
  51. OMG! Who would have thought a fake arm could be so funny. You guys have one cool daddy. When he gets it motorized to do the scooping, vacuuming, and brushing, give me a call.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Humans do such strange things sometimes. We think the only good use for that crazy arm is to keep the hand filled with cat treats at all times!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. WE loved it guys! Your Daddy has a very good imagination! We love how the arm fed you treats, now that we could go for.

  54. What great stuffs ta do with a one-armed-hand! We specially loved seein it clean the litter pool...

    TBT said he would attach it next ta the front door, palm up, with a sign that says "Solicitors, please leave a donation here".

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm a bit worried that I'm weird too now - I was scrolling down through the pictures thinking, " If I had that hand I'd put food in it to see if the cats would eat it!! " then suddenly there it was... he had!! Crazy, er I mean, great minds think alike MOL =^..^=

    ReplyDelete
  56. That Woman say's your dad is a geeeenius! The box person is the awesome! She can think of lots of things an extra arm & hand around the place could do. We won't print ANY of them here. She is too weird & we doesn't want to give your dad any more ideas.

    hang tough kitties and when all esle fails, just pee on the thing.

  68. You know what, kitties? We think our dad would do that same kind of thing! In fact, he would probably love it as a Halloween decoration. Imagine the fun he could have with that!

    ReplyDelete
  69. OMC your Daddy is SILLY!!

    Are you sure he isn't my ex-husband??? lol

    My ex used to DJ weddings/parties, Halloween was one of his favorite holidays.

    EVERY year he brought home a fake/hand/arm and he mostly stuck it in the fridge.

    He got me EVERY TIME!

    I literally used to cry out of fear! lol

    ReplyDelete
  70. HAHAHA!
    We have a whole DOG mannequin here!
    I torment it. Mostly because I know it can't chase me.
