Tabby Tuesday

Oh, first I'd like to thank everyone for their concern for Mom and her coworkers, who found their day hunting place under attack from vishus deer! They have safely escaped to a new, more secure day hunting place. Even so, I've urged Mom to get some VDR* and keep it with her. It's a big, scary world out there!

I've been studying photography with Dad, so I kindly reminded Mom that I don't need the flash. I warned her not to use it, and see? I was right; too much light.
Smile!
What's a "Smart-Alec" and why did she call me that?

  2. I think "smart-alec" was the named for a cat name Alec who was very intelligent so, now whenever a cat is very very bright, people call her or him "smart-alec". Congratulations on being a bright kitty :)

  3. Alec was this really old dood; he has a beard and he invented Guinness (aka the "Mother's Milk that Skeezix likes so much.) He was so awesome that even the queen of England called him "sir." So he must be smart. And if your mom called you Smart Alec, she thinks you're like, 6 kinds of awesome!

  4. Nina, maybe someday she'll learn that no flashy = open eyed Nina.

    Mom thinks it's very dangerous having a Dairy Queen in an office building.

  9. I do not enjoy the flash, either, Nina. It's best just to squinch your eyes real tight like that.

  10. Yeah, a snart Alec sounds clever to us, so it must be good.There's a place called Land's End about 70 miles from us. Is your mum going to post you to there?

  16. I am glad that your Mom and her co-workers are safe from the vishus deer now. You look cute in that box, even if there was too much light.

  17. We are glad to hear that your mom and her co-workers are safe from the VD.

    We have no idea why your mom would forget your name and call you alec instead of nina. It should be smart nina.

  18. We think being a smart-alec is a compliment. Besides, you look so good in that box, it HAS to be a compliment.

    Purrs,

  19. We agree with Zeus. The flash brings out your pretty ginger highlights.
    We are glad mom & her coworkers are taking every precaution against the vishus deer.
