Well, it's about time that we here at Chez-Ranger stopped living off the sweat of other's brows and contributed to the Great Cat-Blogging Community. From the humble desire to give back to those who have given us such great pleasure over the years, we present the 169th edition of the Carnival of the Cats.
Maddie, say "Hello" to our guests:
Ah. Well... enjoy yourself under the bed... Since you are all coming over, we put a big ol' animal leg on the grill. Ivy, do you have the party food ready?
Ah. Well...Let's just get everything rolling then, shall we?
Skittles, over at The Whole Kitten Kaboodle, sets up her yoga studio and gets ready for the crowds.
Sweetie may have a career in Law Enforcement, though it sounds like Captain Jack could use a doctor instead. Thanks to If at First You don't Succeed for taking care of an kitten in need. Maddie and Ivy send good wishes.
Hemmy discovers that it's not the bird in the paw that counts, it's the humans that don't let you keep it that count. Sounds like the good people who can tell us How To Hold a Cat have to install anti-bird shields atop the chimneys. They've also got some lovely pics on the main page.
Someone seems to have incurred Ted's wrath.
Can a Pear-Shaped Cat fit into a 3x3x3 inch box? Aloysius seems to think so.
Henry comes to the belated realization that the beach blanket is a decoy. Payback will shortly ensue.
Bean Sidhe, Zorro, and Lou Garou provide a tutorial for Little Hrimnir. (SPOILER ALERT: not for the tender-hearted).
Leonardo once said that even the smallest feline is a masterpiece. Peanut proves him right.
Mycah helps make sense of the cable-salad at TacJammer.
As are many cats (when it comes to chicken on other people's plates), Baby is brave. As are all cats (when it comes to their territory), Tiny is watchful. Tuck deploys the Giant Paw Of Dinner-Grabbing-Doom as he prepares to go after the Spring Chicken Delight. Thanks to Sissy for presenting all this feline goodness!
The good folks (feline and human) at This, That and the Other Thing feel that Indigo needs some help overcoming her shyness. Well, if exposing her to the wider world of Cat-Blogging doesn't work, nothing will!
Amar and Luna at Catsynth make their first appearance on the Carnival! Welcome!
Valerie reports that Bows has an infection, but is on the mend. Good luck collecting those vital feline fluids.
Cascade Exposures presents a Bath in a beautiful, but puzzling (to us non-felines) spot.
Pushkin and Orloff take comfort in each other as they begin their day on purpose.
Many Many Thanks to Laurence, the GodFather of Cat-Blogging, for allowing us to host.
And to wrap up this week's Carnival of the Cats, The Scratching Post presents a post with a title we can't possibly argue with: A Fine Ending to a Great Week. The Maximum Leader, Jacob the Syrian Hamster, the humans and even the garden, celebrate.
We here at Chez-Ranger think it's been grand having you all over. If I missed anyone, or messed up somehow, just let me know and I'll do my best to fix things. Thanks for coming!
