Don't Be Ashamed

I don't think I need to tell all of you how embarrassing humans can be. We only have so much control over our human family/staff.

So here's a little game you can play over at your place, if you'd like to join in. If you'd like to point out some of your human's goofy behavior you can post this little badge with honor or shame (or make your own badge of shame).

Here are the things I'd like to report on over here:

  • Mom sings goofy little songs like "Put your paws in the air, Me Me Me-Me-ow" with an accompanying hand gestures above her head, and a little hip action thrown in. I guess this is meant to imitate me politely requesting my meal, as if.
  • Both of them pretending to bat at my cat toy to make me jealous and want to play too.
  • Calling me goofy names like Tinkerfluff, Move It, and Moocharella.
No friends, there won't be any winners in this contest, we wouldn't want to encourage them.

All I can say is that they're lucky I can't take pictures.

And I thought my Mummy was embarassing!

The Monkeys said...

Wow, yeah, that is a little uncomfortable.

My Mom burst through a screen door and fell, almost crushing me in the process. She apparently thought I was going to jump up to the balcony ledge...what a weirdo! So I definitely feel your pain, Fin. I may have to borrow your badge.

Oh humans! Ours holds us in her lab when she's on the toliet (not that we didn't ask to jump up into her lap, mind you) and she dances round the living room with us (talk about "So You Think You Can Dance!" and she makes little nom nom nom sounds when she's making up our plate of canned food (but then she eats something else).

We don't spend too much time trying to figure her out (it's the other way around, MOL)

Oh, I could write a book...but then she does take care of me. Just the other day she was trying to take cute pictures of me rolling in the sun on the deck and she knocked over her wine glass...shattering glass everywhere. I had to be removed immediately and it totally ruined my time in the sun not to mention there are NO pictures to document my cuteness. My mother...I'm so ashamed...

Bet you get some interesting stories!

MoMo said...

Good badge, SIF! just don't get me started on that SS of mine. The way she goes on her babytalk to me, you'd think I am an itsy bitsy kitten rather than a fully grown granny cat.

The kitties over at Our family cat-a-log said...

Let's see, momma haz sum silly namez fur us.

Rosemary = Wosemawy Posemawy

Camille = Chameleon

Forrest = Powest Dude or Da Dude Man or Widdle Man

Aurora = Awowa

Why does she do this? She named us. She knows who we are, but, the silly names seem to give her some sort of pleasure. Oh, sure, we come when she says them because there is always a treat in her hand ☺ when she begins to babble!

I think that all of us humans should be grateful that cats and dogs can't work the camera. This is a great idea and I hope to see lots of stories.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Ha Ha!! My mom won't let me write about her!

Cat with a garden said...

Hahahaha! Without words! So embarassing!

Tracey and Huffle said...

If only you knew how to drive the video camera!

We wishes you could the singing with hand gestures would be too funny if you could get a video of them.

Our beans embarrass us too.

I could go on for days. It seems even worse out here in the country, it's like they lose touch with reality or something. Maybe they are bored or have had too many blackfly bites.

So, so embarassing.

What a great idea Fin! All kitties are embarrassed by their hoomans at one time or anudder. But remember that they loves you, too -- that's why they act so funny. It's all about love!

The Island Cats said...

Yep, humans can be so embarrassing...we cats have to endur so much...we might be posting that badge everyday...

The Creek Cats said...

Haha! This sounds like so much fun!

Zeus said...

Those are the moments that make for the spice of life, Fin. As much as I hate to say it, if my human pet wasn't so entertaining, I'd have nothing to write about. She's my moneymaker!

The Cat Realm said...

Ohhh - we HAVE to make time to play this - this is FUN!!!
If you do want to see silly pictures of humans - we did do a contest (it was one of our Dares actually) about that once, go here and laugh:

Parker said...

Oh Fin, the stories I could tell...I am going to have to try to sneak on and do this without the 'rents seeing. They do hunt for my food afterall...

Daisy said...

When my Mommie is making our foods, she sings "Yummies, yummies, good for your tummies!" And her voice, it is very bad.

Tristan and Crikey said...

Your beans are just as nutty as ours! It must be the breed. We're playing along with you today, Fin.

meemsnyc said...

Our beans always do goofy things. Its too much to list. LOL.

Pemberley said...

What a fun contest!

MaoMao said...

hehehe, that's so funny! Our Momma is funny, too. She sings at us and does funny little chants at us alla time, like "molecules of Ballicules, little molecules of Ballicules." We all have silly nicknames, too, and she also likes to meow at us. She sounds so much like a cat sometimes that we've gotta sniff her to make sure she's still a bean!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

VampyVictor said...

hahah Fin you are not alone! I thinks all our mommas are crazy in private.. some in public too! *cough my momma cough*

Sweet Praline said...

Maybe as soon as I can sneak on the laptop, I can tell embarassing things about my mom.

LizzyBean said...

We know how you feel, Fin. The Beanes over here are forever making up silly songs and even sillier names for us; I mean, are they serious?

Your furriends,
Tiger and Gold Kitty
