Monday Madness With Merlene

First of all, we would like to wish all our furriends and family a HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!  May the year of the Water Dragon bring you good health, good blessings and much happiness.

MEOW WEE!   Felix, mah man, you're so white, I need shades!
You're right.  You're definitely longer than my outstretched paws
*Clunk* Dang!  Can't clear the ESS like Uncle Boomer
I have the graceful twirl of a ballerina
Ooooffff!
*No kitty was harmed in this game*
Yikes! What is that thing?

OMC, those photos are just fabulous! Look at Merlene go! Talk about acrobatics. LOL.

A very happy Chinese new year to you all as well. The mom was born in the year of the dragon, so she hopes this year isn't as sucky as the last one. :-P

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR !!!
Me and Mom just LOVE the action photos on Merlene and the other cat´s !
Our favorite is the one there Merlene is dancing like a prima ballerina :)

Marg said...

Those are the best pictures. You should enter some contests with them. That Merlene is something else. We love the ballerina one. Happy Chinese New Year to all of you too.
Be sure to save those pictures. If I find any contests, I will let you know. Those are just fantastic. Take care.

So, we see gravity is NOT enforced at your house!!! GREAT photos! We are all MOL-ing like madcats.

Merlene is Crazypants...

Happy Chinese New Year!

Finn said...

Wow, that is some impressive acrobatics! Nice work!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

So doesn't Merlene like fall off the earth or something when she does all this? 'Cause I'm pretty sure gravity can't be quite strong enough to hold her down!

Ha ha ha at the "ooof" shot--gotta learn that lesson sometime though!

Happy New Year!

Lucy the Cat said...

OMG! TW gotted a nice exciting envelope today! But guess what!! It was opened and resealed by U.S. Customs at Los Angeles. There was a sheet that said the package contained "fresh unknown leaves" and that the "prohibited material was removed and destroyed"!!!! ::sob:: You sent some leaves from a silvervine plant????

FORTUNATELY, the package of powders came through just fine and we are ridiculously excited by the great bounty you sent us! It's enough to get every kitty on the West Coast higher than a kite, MOL!! In fact, the Human has already started! She shared a little with her friend, the Dad of Aggie and Wally. She will write a report on how much fun they had once he lets them at it.

THANK YOU guys SO MUCH! You are sooooo generous! XOXOXO

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Come on over, Zoie got a present!!!!!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Believe me, your Mommeh was not as disappointed as this Boy that those leaves gotted stolen!! I bet those Customs Guys taked those leaves home for their OWN kitties! Yeah, that's what I think!! Thieves!!

XOXOXO

orbit said...

Ha ha ha, these pictures are a riot. What great action shots!

Clooney said...

Oh what precious shots of Merlene in action! Unbelievable and fantastic!

Tamago said...

What a wonderful set of photos!! I see they all have so much fun!
And I always wonder how you take such great action shots. I try to take photos of my kids in the air, but usually I capture after they landed. Either I am slow or my camera is slow....!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

My Human wishes she could just reach through the screen and grab Merlene and bring her here for a little visit. She's SO much fun!

So, Boomie, it looks like Rutabaga and you and me are kind of circling around Katie, eh? Not to mention a dozen others. Well, we shall see....

Au and Target said...

Excellent whapping there. Love it!
