Floofy Friday

Mom was so tired when dragged home the last two nights we missed our Peace Day post and I'm late for Floofy Friday. Honestly there are times when I wish I could replace her, on the secretarial front anyway. Well at least there are fresh Porch Time pics!

Let's stay out here for awhile Mom!


Can you tell my floof is a bit thin right now? I know, I still look pretty floofy, but I'm just starting to grow my winter plumage. Growing floof is hungry work, and I am packing in the treats and gravy to make sure it's thick and extra soft like I like it. Floof Making is also sleepy work, so lots of naps in between the eatin. Porch Time in the cool morning hours also encourages the furs to come on out. My weekend will be busy ensuring my neck frill is full and fluffy.

Mom ::Stiffles yawn:: will be working on... something. She had taken a little writing break from her non-cat book and I think she needs to jump back in! I'd like her to start on my next book already... did I recently mention what a great holiday gift Housecat Confidential (the book-available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle and on their UK site too) would make?

I hope everyone has a great weekend planned. It won't be long before we are all shivering over here, so enjoy it while you can I say.

Bonus Pic: Here I am at about 11 months old. I had outgrown my kitten floof and was just about to grow into my full floofitude. My parents thought they had dodged the long-haired cat bullet. It's funny.

You can really see my tabby stripes and my laser eyes!

Oh Fin you were such a cute child. But now you are a gorgeous lady. We are thrilled that you are working so hard on your floof. Take care and get lots of rest so you can make lots of floof. Take care.

You are very beautiful girl!! Love the baby picture... We are pretty cold here already - Mo slept under the covers last night.

The Crew said...

Oh Fin, you were so darling!

I'm with you on the lax secretary thing. Mom is darn near useless, but unfortunately I don't have enough green papers to hire a replacement.

Hi Fin and Mom!!! We missed your floofy self!!!!

Can't wait to see you all furried-out!!

Cat with a Garden said...

Finny, we love the 11 months old pic! Too cute. And yes, the floof is kicking in around here too, although mom says I was already extremely floofy during Summer. As I'm only 2 Years old I hadn't reached full floofitude before yet, I guess. Keep your mom busy! We do with ours too.
Purrs for the weekend.

Fin, you were a cute baby and you're just floofy lovely, looking forward to that thick floof for Winter.

Brian said...

I love the little Fin picture!!! Hey everyone, if you don't have the book it really would make a great gift...it's good!

Floofalicious! Minnie is getting her winter floof now, too, so her fur is just about irresistable. One of these days, she's going to get tired of me sticking my nose in it. :)

Katnip Lounge said...

Fin, I am doing the same thing! Everywhere I lay down I leave a clump of old floof. My winter coat is gonna be great this year!
I will follow your tips on eating, napping, and just the right amount of fresh air.

pee ess: You were an adorable kitten!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Fin, after this past week, with 100 degree weather here in SoCal, none of us kitties are in the mood to grow extra floofage! Supposedly it will cool down here this weekend. I hope so!

P.S. If you get fed up with your human but don't want to totally get rid of her, maybe you can hire a temp to help out when she is slacking off. I am considering doing that.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Do woo need me to send some fur woo until you've refloofed sufficiently?

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

What an adorable baby picture!

I agree. Floof shedding and growing is totally a full time job!-Shaggy

The Island Cats said...

Oh Finny!! Look how cute you were!! And we are amazed that you didn't have a lot of floof back then!!

Have a great weekend!

Simba said...

That is funny that your parents thought you weren't going to be floofy and then you turned out to be! Your kitten stripes were much more obvious than now. My parents didn't know me as a kitten so do not know how floofy I was when I was little.

Glad you can get some porch time now. here it is cold and wet today.

Kas said...

Oh my FIn,

You were such a cutie and you have grown into such a floofy cat.

ABBY said...

Oh Finny we love you so much!

Oh Fin, how cute you are ... and were.

"The Boys" and I think you are just the best.

Glogirly and Katie said...

Hi Fin,

I really like the whole floof-growing line you've got going to justify extra treats. I'm not particularly floofy, but I'm thinking your strategy just might work for me.

I will keep you apprised.

Mr Puddy said...

Hi Fin,
When I first saw your baby photo, I can't tell it was you till I read.
because right now, you have a beautiful long hair.
when you was a kid, you are so cute !
When you grow ...you are gorgeous lady, Fin

Banana and Cheese said...

Father Tom said...

Honestly, whenever I visit I get so creeped out since we look a lot alike.

Julie says..working on a book is hard. Doing a follow-up book is harder.

Finny...love the young floof!

Cory said...

There's nothing quite looking at baby pictures of you Fin! At 11 months you were still technically a kitten, and oh so cute!

Mom has been ridiculously busy at "work"...sigh. It's getting hard for her to keep up her obligations to me.

Purrs, Cory

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

Oh my goodness, that kitten picture is so cute. All eyes.

MoMo said...

You look so different in this kitten pic.

Want some floof? I am moulting badly with the coming of the warmer weather.

Cat said...

Fin I never would have recognized you from your kitten pic!

hahameow...they thought you were a DMH? A domestic medium hair?? A new strain of shorthaired NFC's? You sure showed them!
