Toes and Tummy Tuxedo Tuesday

Kitties!

Salem here.
I'm having a little fun with the ESS.

And apparently Mommy is having a little fun with me.
*sigh*

The blue ESS that lives in the living room is very unruly, so I have to claw and pummel it into submission at least once every evening.  It's particularly prone to sprouting feathers at the corners, especially if Mommy is around.  Pretty weird, huh? 

I enjoy playing with it with "plain", too...

...and it's the best prop for advanced yoga poses; here I'm demonstrating the devilishly difficult "Impossible to Crop Satisfactorily" position.

*wink*


Happy Tuesday!

That is a very good exercise routine and we know just how unruly esses can be . The sprouting feathers is not something that happens here though - maybe because we have no FBB's to speak of.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

You remind me of my sweet Mr Toes! Love to see you play!

The Chair Speaks said...

Hehehe, we claw like this too - relaxing style! Our human tried but could not take any pictures of us doing it; we'd run off. Purrs!

No, we did not have to form a sub-committee to decide EJ's punishment.
We just demand more attention, combing, food and toilet cleaning to make our human super busy and work extra hard! Hah!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Oh, the JLLS!!! In plain view in multiple poses! Be still my heart! Whew. Is it hot in here?

Patty Woodland said...

The Farm cats do not have an ESS. Perhaps they need to acquire one

The Furries of Whisppy said...

You sure know how to have fun with your ESS!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Salem, I need to get my human to put MY Ess in a better place! We don't play with it much, but that is mainly because it is in such an out-of-the way part of the living room - we never even go there!

Mr Puddy said...

Roll my belly up and catch your wink ! ..and WOO...HOO ! I got it ; )
Miss Salem !!!! I miss you !!!
Now I smile and smile and smile

The correlations between your Mom's presence and the sprouting of feathers is most intriguing, Salem. Definitely worth following up!

Purrs,
The Chans

The Island Cats said...

You sure are giving that ess a workout, Salem!!

Lin said...

Hmmmmm, we don't have one of those. Are they fun? Right now, we just have an empty room because we have painters coming later in the week. The cats are having a hey-day just tearing around the empty room. Go figure.

Shaggy and Scout said...

Lovely, Salem. Just lovely!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I STILL don't have an ESS...my damn cheapskate Mommy!

Maggie M said...

You sure know how to use that ESS. We can tell you have found many uses for it. We have one in the living room that gets a workout by Snookums after Mumsy goes to bed at night. We wish Popsy would learn to use the camera so he could get pictures. Keep enjoying that ESS. Hugs and nose kisses

Yours is very clean-looking. Ours is all fuzzy and ripped.
