MANCAT MONDAY: DYLAN THE CLOWN PRINCE

Dylan is normally very single-minded.  When he wants something, he doesn't give up -- easily, anyways.  He is also a bit of a clown.  It's his facial expressions that get me every time!  Mostly he looks rather alarmed at something, but it has a hilarious effect.

Here he is just out on the front bench, and then making an awkward transition back to the front porch where he decides that he desparately wants back inside.  Silly boy, er mancat!

Am I being tailed by any chance?


It's a split decision.  Do I go this way or that?

(Maybe if I speak to it nice, it will open.)  "I adore you, door.  You're my one and only!"

Gotta think a little harder.  I hear sticking your tongue out helps your concentration.


Or staring hard off into the distance!

Time to regroup even though I'm all by myself.


I has to get up to scratch if I wanna get in!

Oops!  My claws got stuck in the wedderstripping!

I guess I better just wait for my mama!  Where are you mama???

So we leave our mancat, forlorn and out of luck.  Not every story has a happy ending.  And everyone, including mancats can't always have what they want -- at least not immediately!

Patience, my pet!

Doors are stupid. The only thing they have to do is open or close. And they can't even do that right.

What a great series on Dylan! His expressions are priceless. I love to watch cats think and also capture it on "film" if I can.
