Duly Noted



After scolding one's cat one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word.
And has filed it for reference.

Now that one made me laugh! Great one!

Wayfarin' Stranger said...

Yes, without a doubt!

Miriam said...

Understood every word...and maybe didn't care one bit? That's my cat Petunia - she is impervious to any sort of scolding I might try to inflict! At least Oliver looks a little abashed...

Deb said...

That goes without saying.

Sharon said...

Gotta love Oliver... and he appears to be one smart cookie!

Betsy said...

Yep. I totally agree with that! haha.

Mama-Bug said...

Surely you didn't have to scold sweet little Oliver! I love the expression on his face.

John Gray said...

I have been wanting to take a photo of my Albert like yours for an age... just can't capture him!!!

DJan said...

Oh, ouch! Little Oliver could never be bad, could he? Of course he IS a cat... :-)

Country Gal said...

Getting into trouble was he ! Harley has some funny looks on her at times ! Now Oliver you behave for mum ! Have a wonderful day !

Sandra said...

i think you are right, looks like he will remember what you said and of course hold it against you

Ginny said...

I get those looks from my two girls!! Ha Ha.

At the bottom of the field lives a cat with 5 "toes" on each paw...and she has taken me on as a project! I seem to have passed the test of suitability and she will grudgingly sit on my lap while I try to read the paper. so priviledged!!

Babs said...

So true...Giggle. Poor Oliver.

Star said...

Yes, that's definitely a thoughtful cat. You'd better what your behaviour and your words. He's counting...

L. D. Burgus said...

Yep, that is a cat's way. I am above all scolding and correction.

Jeri Landers said...

Ah, I know that look all too well. In fact, it is sitting across from me right now, silently simmering.

Swamp Dog said...

Yes, they give you the attitude, 'you best be careful or I will banish you from MY kingdom'. They think you are privileged to be allowed to be in their presence. Such aloof and regal personalities, I guess that is why we love them so!
