Tabby Tuesday: The Fine Art of the Hidey Hole

tabby tuesday simon 11212017 - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello there everyone and welcome to Tabby Tuesday! I wonder why it’s not called Simon Tuesday since this is usually my day? I’ll have to speak to the blog owner Brother Brian about that. Hang on, I’ll go ask him. Well, he was snoozing in one of the cat beds so I think that question will have to wait until later.

Let me ask you this, do you like my hidey hole? I’m starting to like it, especially since when I get way back in here nobody can see me, and that makes pouncing out even more of a surprise. I’ve discovered quite a few hidey holes around here and I’m not sure why I hadn’t noticed them before. There really is an art to the hidey hole thing and the first rule is to pick one that is close to your fur colors to help in catoflage effect. Oh, another important thing is to pick a hidey hole where there is a lot of paw traffic, that way the opportunity for many surprises exist. Sometimes you’ve got to be prepared to get whapped though if you surprise the wrong kitty!

Oh, I think I hear someone coming this way so I’ll see you soon.  Always remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Oh Simon, that is a terrific hidey hole. Our Lil Mum, loves to ambush all the cats here. But that does look like such a great place to hide and then pounce. You all have a fantastic day.

“if you surprise the wrong kitty …” Yep. That’s how it works. And I bet you just can’t resist – even when you know who the wrong kitty is!

Simon, that’s a great hidey hole. You have obviously mastered the art of hiding and then pouncing, something Pierrot loves to do too. Even if you surprise the wrong kitty, it’s worth it, isn’t it?

Hey Simon, dat looks like a great hidey spot. We don’t have many of those here. ‘Course we live in a much smaller house than you do. But it does sound like fun to surpurrise kitties and your mommy and daddy. Careful of those whacky paws. MOL Big hugs

I love my igloo cos I can hide in there though it’s blue which is the color I look most stunning up against. I have made jumping out of my tunnel an art form. You should see how high TW jumps when I grab an ankle.

Simon! What a rocking hidey hole! I, Marvelous have several but have not even gone into them yet. I do, however, like to hide under the bed and leap out at Mommy’s feet!
