That's My Boy.

I really need to stress that he does this to himself. He got himself in. He got himself out. And at no point, was he ever anything other than terribly terribly intent on getting to whatever he thinks lives down there.

    (I see quite a bit of that side protruding from various places....)
  • Robert Oschler 9y

    He looks like one of thosee Garfield "rear view" stick on dolls here! Definitely a classic shot!
  • andrea z 9y

    He was doing this again last night, BTW. By the time I found the camera it was mostly over.
  • Robert Oschler 9y

    One of those photos that makes me laugh every time I come back to it.

    Is he part of the president's "No Cat's Left Behind" program?
  • Missy 9y

    LOL, what a silly kitty. This is too cute!
  • feline fancier 9y

    What are you keeping in there (apart from the obvious)? - maybe there's a sider or two to hunt! Love the rear end shot - very funny!
  • Denise 9y

    This is something my Harley Taittinger would do, and his butt is about the same size. Totally enjoyed this shot.

    this is the view I most often see of my ginger cat too
    what makes them so curious?
  • andrea z 9y

    The orange cats pool has a place for cats likes ours! (Also Cats in Odd Places.) There've been a few discussion threads on that topic and others. Consensus is that ginger cats are more likely to be nut cases, though.

    Do you ever sneak up behind him and tickle his butt when he's buried head-down in a portal candidate?
  • andrea z 7y

    yeah, sometimes you just have to go for it! Although not with the umbrella stand, or when his hindquarters are sticking out in mid air. (It'd be too easy for him to poke his eye out or get tangled up in electrical wire, or something evil like that.)

    But buckets and boxes and shoes, all the time.

    I'm so glad we have Pete to protect us from the umbrella stand monster. I feel much safer now.

    This is a hilarious series!
