Hairy Eyeball

Sweetie, taken in May 2016
She does a pretty good sneer!
I was allowed to sleep in yesterday.  The Hubby fed the voracious Manny and Chili Bruce, gave Angel her bowl, and put food out for The 'O' Cats.  When I awoke, he mentioned that Sweetie had not appeared when he set out breakfast.

When I put down fresh food bowls later that afternoon, The PO'M was there, but no Sweetie!  OH NOES!  In my zeal to make sure she was okay, I pulled The Cat Hotel out from under it's awning, in an effort to take a look inside.  If Sweetie was ill, I was going to find out!

As The Cat Hotel was about halfway out, Sweetie exploded out of it, and turned to me with such a look, that I can only describe it as the Hairy Eyeball, or Stink Eye!  The Hubby was watching too, and we laughed for a full five minutes, interpreting her expression as, "What the heck, human?  Can't a kitty get some sleep around here without you bothering us?"  Or something like that, with a few cuss words too.  If looks could kill, I'd be a dead woman!

I did not snap a photo of it, but Sweetie's look is imprinted on my brain forever.  She has appeared for every meal since, however!

Oh wow, that was funny! Guess she wanted to sleep in today.

We understand, it does make you worry when the normal isn't there.

Well, I'm glad she's okay! Btw, it took me forever to see her in that photo...!

The Island Cats said...

Sounds like Sweetie wanted to sleep in too.

That's too funny! Sweetie must've needed some serious beauty sleep!

Ha ha ha ha! Sweetie's look was probably about the same as our mom gets if she doesn't know we're in the catbox when she goes to clean it!

Nobody does stink eye better. LOL

(But, you were a good kitty mom to run a check on her, even if she didn't appreciate it.)

The Indulged Furries said...

I'm sure Sweetie thought it very rude of you to upend her home while she was sleeping in it.

You made my morning better with this blog today. :-)

I always get worried when one of the cats doesn't show up right away for food, so I would have disturbed her rest too, and gotten the ol' stink eye! :)

Marie Symeou said...

Yeah, I get the stink eye quite a lot from Athena too!

Caren Gittleman said...

Geeze, Sweetie is right, can't a kitty get ANY peace and quiet around there?

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Some kitty just wanted some peace and quiet. I understand though ... between the time I met Bear and when I brought him inside, there were several days he was no where to be found and I panicked (including the day I'd made an appt for the vet to have him checked out before we brought him inside).

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! TW had to biggify the image and it still took her 5 minutes to find Sweetie. She's a bit old and senile and the eyes are going. Glad Sweetie is ok.

Kitties Blue said...

At least your heart and mind were put at ease. Mom knows that sinking feeling when a kitty does not show up. She's forgotten all about your rude behavior! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

The Menagerie Mom said...

I'm so glad that Sweetie is fine, and that she made her message to you loud and clear. Purrs to all!

We're glad she's okay. Has she gone back to usin' the hotel? We sure hope she didn't get too scared to use it. It's just too cold fur her to be out in the weather. Big hugs

Luv ya'
