Willow: I really AM royalty! (Click on any picture to see larger view)
"Cats, as a class, have never completely got over the snootiness caused by the fact that in ancient Egypt they were worshipped as gods. This makes them prone to set themselves up as critics and censors of the frail and erring human beings whose lot they share." ~ P.G. WodehouseYes, Willow is ready for Halloween in her Queen's crown and hood. Part of her furry self loves the idea of being "Queen" but another part is simply annoyed that this thing is on her head and she is being held against her will. On top of that there is a flashing light with a lens stuck in her face. Oh the indignity of it all!!!
Willow: We are not amused!
"All I Ask Is That You Treat Me No Differently Than You Would The Queen" ~ AnonymousScarlett, has her own crown to bear.
Scarlett: This is so embarrassing!
"There is a particular disdain with which Siamese cats regard you. Anyone who has walked in on the Queen cleaning her teeth will be familiar with the feeling." ~ Douglas Adams (British comic Writer, 1952-2001)Scarlett wiggles and squirms and backs up, in a circle; trying to get the crown off her head. Deep in her little cat heart burns the fire of her namesake; that Irish daughter of the South, Scarlett O'Hara. Her disdain goes far beyond the crown and the stupid human who put it on her head; it encompasses ALL the other feline members of the household.
Scarlett: As God is my witness, I AM Queen of the South!!
"A cat's got her own opinion of human beings. She don't say much, but you can tell enough to make you anxious not to hear the whole of it." ~ Jerome K. JeromeYes, after being forced to try on their costumes for the camera, Willow and Scarlett are none too pleased with their domestic human help. Such bothersome behavior is rewarded with hisses, snarling and a prolonged session of remedial grooming under the bed, far from the reach of human hand.
Hopefully, they will both be over their "drama queen" attitudes by Friday, so they can visit with their other animal friends at Friday's Ark. And on Sunday, the day before Halloween, catch them at Carnival of the Cats, this week hosted by Watermark.
