Midnight Monday

I am blending in to my surroundings as good House Panthers are known to do. This allows us to reach out and snag a hand for biting, or a Cheese-It from a bowl. mmm Cheese-Its....I digress.

Blending in is easy for House Panthers to do especially at night. It is always amusing to watch beans running around the house looking for me "Hendrix, where are you? It is time for bed" "Come here sweetie, mommy wants to pet your pretty face" and then when they see the me, I'm always laying right there!

It is truly entertaining to come stretching out of my "hiding place" like "what's the deal? Why are you freaking out? I'm right here!" I love it.

PS Mommy FINALLY posted my M-Cat Club badge on the right side panel. Bendrix has yet to get a photo that suits him to send in. He is working on it. Remember, when he is out, the camera is usually exchanged for a squirt gun!

I know. I love being black cat! You can hide in a patch of shadow or on something black and the humans can't see you. So much for their so called superior eyesight!

I hope you had a Happy Eastern Mr. Hendrix!

Ivy says she can't wait to see Bendrix's badge!

You look very pantherish in that pic, Hendrix.

Luna often blends in, too, since I wear mostly black.

My Cornish Grandma has a black Scottie woofie. She had trouble finding him in the garden at night when she wanted him to come in. So she bought him a fluorescent collar, now he glows in the dark! Don't tell your humans, they might buy you one!

You are doing a fine fine job of blending!

PB & J said...

Maybe your mom needs a camera with a squirt attachment?!

Happy Easter Hendrix! Hope you had a great one!
It's great that you can hide from your parents so easily. While I was reading this post I was thinking of my uncle cat, Tommy. He reminds me of you, but when my grandma goes to bed, she yells out "Tom! Bed time!" and then he trots down the hall and jumps onto the bed and goes under the covers to sleep...
Love Clover xo

That sounds like a brilliant way to agitate the human. Hopefully, bendrix can tip her over the edge into nervous breakdown territory by pretending to be missing. That way, she will be home sick from work and consequently be on hand to wait on him hand and paw.

A cunning plan! x

Wow how handsome you look in that M-cat club badge ~ it is one of the best M-cat badges we've seen!
We totally agree with the blending part ~ we iz not house panthers but sometimes we blend with the wooden furniture in case of Forest and Leo (with their brown furs) ~ once our bean searched for hours for Leo before finding him napping right in front of him he he!

You are very good at blending in. What fun it must be to blend in and play tricks on your beans!

Animals with Opinions said...

what a lovely cat you are!! i have two blacks that live with me that are shiny. they hide in shadows and jump out to frighten us when we go by! it is great fun! i wish our black cats would get older so they would fill out more.i guess i shouldn't talk as i am still a kitty too. i wouldn't say goat tastes quite like pork tenderloin but it is just as tender probably more tender and delicious. you should tell your humans to get you some.

penelope
thanks for the visit

Maggy & Zoey said...

Just curious (as cats can be...) to know if Mr Hendrix ever received his photo doing "dirty dancing" with Patrick S.
We read somewhere it t'was a favorite of his....

Veronica (M) said...

Hi Mr. Hendrix!

Halloween said...

Hi Mr. Hendrix. Do not settle for "Cheese its", Cheetos, etc. Demand real cheese! The people are depriving you of something special!!
