About Too Fast to be Perfect.

Previous Entry Too Fast to be Perfect. Oct. 25th, 2006 @ 11:52 am Next Entry

I tried to take an action picture of Kinky Tribble in mid climb but, as usual, she was too fast, swerving at the last second. It's difficult to hold your nerve and a camera when the fastest tribble in the West is racing up your clothing. Almost the perfect kitten picture. If only I'd had a wide-angle lens.

The debate on who was at fault for the last picture turns nasty. "What do you mean it was my fault!" shouts Kinky at her fellow tribble supermodels.

With the departure of four tribbles for catwalks new, the last tribble is promoted to the big bowl. Xena folds back her left ear to make room.

And makes him feel welcome at night.

The Last Tribble is settling down very well. He eats, sleeps and plays with Kai and Xena and knows all the really small places a tribble can run and hide under when the big kittens get too rough. It's going to be another wrench when he leaves in a fortnight's time.

Kai, meanwhile, is auditioning for a new role in the garden. A role on a pole. He's not sure if he sees himself as a weather-kitten or a scarecrow.

Scarecrow? Don't you mean "'fraidycat"? ;)

Did I miss something? Who's going away? Why? Where?

BTW, I couldn't post anything about the figs as 1.) I don't like figs, 2.) we have a fig tree in our backyard in brooklyn that yeilds two crops per year, 3.) each crop is attacked by squirrels roughly one week short of ripeness (two squirrel bites taken from each fig on the tree), leaving me 4.) unable to give the figs to my favorite neighborhood chef up the block for her restaurant.

Figs make me a little crazy.

It's the final stage of the great tribble re-homing project. An English couple wanted a boy tribble but couldn't pick him up until they returned from holiday in November.

And Gypsy agrees with you about squirrels - they are perpetual schemers and never wait until anything is ripe. With us it's hazel nuts.

Hazelnuts (also known as Filberts) are my favorite kind of nuts, aside from my LJ friends, of course. :-)

Must be hard to stop yourself from bonding with the last tribble, he looks so cuddly!

I love the happily confident look on Kinky Tribble's face in the first pic. Priceless!

I love your kitty photos. The one with the kitten feeding with the 2 bigger cats is priceless. I wish mine could get along that well.

I love the second picture where he is yelling, LOL! I hope your wrench isn't to bad, when he leaves for his new home.

It's amazing how cats can balance like that!
