Scrabble cats

Last night we played a rousing game of Scrabble, and Alex found a great place to nap:

For the record, according to the Scrabble dictionary, "gook" is not just a racist insult, but also means "guck" or thickly-applied make-up. Gordon wanted that clarified, since it's one of the words on the board!

Meanwhile, Julius snoozes on the kitty credenza, high above us all...


  1. Are you allowed French words? Otherwise I couldn't play. Ah!well...I'm good at snoozing. I would do scarbble oldie instead.

  2. Ooh what handsome fellows. Do you have a pic of Gordon curled up in a board game!

  3. As so often, Jams was quicker than me.

  4. Alex and Julius look quite comfy.
    Dave won't play scrabble with me... he'll only play games he has a chance of winning - so mostley we play ches, becuase we are pretty evenly matched.

  5. I have several cat in box pics. My kitties would squeeze their derrieres into any box handy and have a pleased-as-punch look about them.

    Kitties do love their boxes! The other day I took down an open-top basket that I keep greeting card paper in and almost immediately my cat, Neferkitty, hopped inside and went right to sleep. After I finished making the card I didn't have the heart to disturb her, so I left the basket on the floor. Am I a sucker or what?

  7. Claudia, I think they have Scrabble en français, with a special board and tiels. But of course I would let you use all the mots français que vous voudriez!

    Jams, I'm afraid Gordon would crush the box, but he curls up on the couch quite nicely.

    Sean, who can keep up with Jams!?

    WanderingCat, I'm glad you and Dave have found something you're evenly matched at. I usually kill Gordon at Scrabble but he doesn't seem to mind. He doesn't have my killer instinct!

    Shona, don't you love kitties in boxes?

    TTPT, I would have left her too. You are sweet to your Neferkitty!


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
