Let me in!

It's another Cats on Tuesday.

Pippin outside "Let me in. let me in. let me in. let me in... let me in!"
We have a cat door... That's why our neighbor's cat Tinkerbelle is always in our house. She helps herself to food and comfort.
But Pippin thinks he's special, and demands we open the door for him.

Me, opening door "Ok, Pipps, come on. ... Pippin? yoo hoo.. ... Pippin, did you want in?"
Pippin outside "Hmm.. what's that over there..."

Isn't that what all cats do? Jessica also behaved that way always. She would ask for the door to be opened but she will still stay outside lazying about...unless it's food time.. haha :P

haha very cute! I love how he is suddenly disinterested to come in once you open it.

By the way, I love your background for this blog. Is that a fabric you scanned in? Chris thought it looked familiar, but wasn't sure.

What lovely kitties you have! I read quite a few of your posts. Our sincere condolences on losing little Molly. We have cat doors and we have found that if we stare at them long enough, Mom, Nana or Grampy will open the door for us, too.

You have the most marvelous garden! We would love to explore it! So many lovely things to look at!

Very cute. I just recently saw a cartoon with that, the cat really wanting in, but when the door was finally opened, seeming disinterested.

Kelly, I designed that myself as a fabric for the Sims2. See here
(scroll down) , and made the background for it brown for this blog.

Too funny! We are indoor-only cats, so we think any cat that goes outside is very brave!

Hi, thanks for visiting me! Pippin's got a very pretty coat. At first I thought he's a tortie but then I see stripes on his neck...is he a tortie/tabbie mix or a tortie/bengal mix or...?

Irishcoda,
Pippin is a classic tabby. My son thinks that he might have a bit of oriental mixed in because of his longer nose and legs, and also the oriental-cat personality.

Wow, very cool to see your Sims work. I love that pattern - you should design a few more and get them printed. I know I would buy it. I love the brown version especially!
