Nosy Clover

Clover, what is that on your nose? (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"You're a very nosy fellow, kitty-cat, huh? You know what happens to nosy fellows? Huh? No? Wanna guess? Huh? No? Okay. They lose their noses." ~ The Thug In The White Suit (Roman Polanski), Chinatown
Clover isn't a "fellow", but she is NOSY. She tends to be in everyone's business; makes it a habit to sniff the other kitty behinds, at times with dire results. If there is an open closet door, she's there. Open the front door, she's there. The door to the garage, she's there. She's quiet, too quiet. Clover walks through a room without a sound, even while wearing a collar with five bells attached. Scarlett is watching birds? Clover has to get into the act, scaring the birds away. What? A bag behind the cedar chest? Clover has to stick her head in it.

What IS that on her nose? I'm not sure what happened here; but I have an idea. It looks like Clover managed to get into the library when my dad wasn't looking. He tends to drop little pieces of paper from spiral notebooks in there. She "nosed" around in the trash can and there you have it. Paper stuck to her nose. It isn't strange that some souvenir of her adventures sticks to her. It is strange that she seemed oblivious to the paper on her nose for a half an hour. Really stylish there Clover!

Clover will be wearing her new "nose ornament" to Friday's Ark this week. Well, I'm certainly not going to tell her it's still there! With her luck, it will still be plastered to her face at this weeks Carnival of the Cats, hosted on Sunday by Animal Family.
