Tabby Tuesday: How Much Does Attention Cost?

      38 Comments on Tabby Tuesday: How Much Does Attention Cost?

tabby tuesday simon 10032017 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!It’s Tabby Tuesday and Brother Brian said I need to practice my blogging skills and I needed to get up on the couch and help the Dad with the blog.  Brother Brian also said I needed to pay attention.  Okay, so who is this attention  dude and why do I have to pay him?  As far as I know attention hasn’t done anything for me so I don’t think I owe him a thing.

Then Brother Brian said I wasn’t very good at paying attention.  Obviously Brother Brian wasn’t listening.  I’m not paying attention one darn thing unless he can prove to me why I owe him anything!  Besides, I don’t think attention has anything to do with our blog and I’m up here helping the Dad just like I should be.

Does that attention dude every show up at your place?  If he does I’d suggest you go hide somewhere until he goes away.  He can be quite the pest!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Oh Simon, you are being very funny this morning. We certainly wouldn’t pay that darn attention either. Good thinking on your part. Sending our best purrs to Sascha and hope she is all right. You all have a great day.

I agree with Eastside Cats! Heck with paying Attention. What’s he EVER done for you? You help Dad and just forget about Attention. He’s just a troublemaker!

OK, Sion. The answer is quite simple, really. The more you pay attention, the more treats you are likely to get!

We are sad to report our dear cat Freckles passed away on the way to the Vet yesterday. So sad to lose another family member in 2017.

it’s difficult to pay attention when humans tickle a keyboard… but being da muse and da ins-paw-ration is a a kind of attention too… and it deserved a treat… or two…

Simon…OMCS brudder Brian is pulling your long gorgeous cat tail. Toooo funny.
When my sissy started high school (which was the same one Daddy graduated from) she came home one day and asked Daddy where the pool was in the high school. Daddy said there is no pool. MOLMOL the upper classmates were pulling the legs of the freshmen.

Silly Simon, you don’t have to pay money to attention, just focus on the blog. I love your fireplace and how it is decorated.

I remember that “Attention” guy from when I was in the Navy. Every now and then somebody would call out his name, and we would have to stand up straight and stay still. 🙂

I kind of ignore the “pay Attention” thing. I’m not paying a soul anything until I get my allowance anyway!

We only care about attention when he’s being elusive and Momma refuses to pay him!
ps – We’re thinking of all of you … poor Sascha.

Don’t fuss Simon….we don’t pay attention either. Like what are we suppose to pay him with? I have such broken toys I can give em and Shoko can give him a belly dance, that should make him happy. mol

He’s definitely a pain in the butt, that attention dude. I was glad to read that Brian is doing okay… and I am sending POTP to Sascha.

Simon, I am always being told to pay attention too. I am only a young pup with no money – how am I to pay attention and who is this attention anyway? I know that if Mom tells me to pay attention, if I listen to HER, I get some treats – I am still confused.

As long as you stay cute and adorable Mr attention dude will stay away from you. Although it doesn’t always work for me. tabby’s are naturally cute. Smart too.

But why would you pay someone or something to be a tension? I thought kitties were supposed to be calm and relaxed?

This attention dud, he keeps slipping just out of our reach….

MOL. We don’t pay that attention guy any mind, either, Simon. Well, unless Mom or Dad bust out the treats. For some reason, that makes a difference.

We don’t pay that attention guy any either. He needs to get us to like him first.

We only have to pay attention when we are doing our sports or if Mom asks us for something. Cats are better at the ignoring thing.

So that’s why I can’t get no attention around here. I refuse to pay to play.

Simon, you definitely appear to be on the lookout for that attention guy in case he comes looking for the pay out. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

I think the attention dude is actually the pawparazzi that seems to hover a lot around all us kitties these days. The pawparazzi knows that we kitties make the best stories and pictures! You are smart to want to hide under the bed, ’cause sometimes they can get into our purr-sonal space! Hugs!
