Cat in a Crinoline

The other day I was sorting out my crinolines: tidying them away.  I set them down on the floor for a second, turned around to pick up a cord to tie them with, and turned back to find this:

One cat, comfortably ensconced on the crinolines.

She wasn’t moving either.

No pleas, treats, temptations, blandishments or threats could get her off.  She just sat there, paws crossed, and surveyed her circular domain.

For an hour.  And a half.

Yep.  My cat sure knows how to be the centre of attention!


  1. I read it “no pleats, treats…” 😀 You know, a sewing cat…
    I love how she outstretches her paw. Just so you’re sure she’s claiming all of it.

  2. If you look carefully, you can tell that she’s a cat on a crinoline, looking like the cat who at the canary :}

  3. What a lady: keeps her ankles crossed even in a floor-length skirt!

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.

  4. She is like “*paws crossed* Nope, not leaving here. That’s all mine now.” So cute. 🙂

  5. My favorite posts are the ones featuring this beautiful cat 🙂

    We wouldn’t have Miss Fissy any other way. So delightful.

  7. Oh, she looks so graceful with her crossed paws. I am sure she knows exactly how pretty she is.

    Felicity just needs a little crown of feathers and she would be exactly like the ballerinas in swan lake when they bow down in that pose with their tutus all around them. Does she KNOW how cute she is? I think so!

  9. How confident she poses, like a real old fashioned sovereign. So lovely, as if she had understood what ‘to be in the centre of attention’ means.
    Thank you so much for your cat posts, they always make my day!

  10. So cute, I love the crossed paws and the look in her eyes that says “you want me to move? no way!”

    I love seeing posts with Miss Felicity she is adorable!
