pooky meets the poppet

sorry i’ve been invisible of late and haven’t posted something new or visited anyone’s blogs. my mom is visiting me in england for the first time, so i have barely had any time to go on the internet. in the meantime, here is pooky meeting the poppet.


one cool thing about my mom visiting (apart from seeing her, of course!) is that i’m taking lots of nice photos of oxford for future posts. one of the regular segments that i have lined up for this blog is a post relating to oxford. i love living here. it’ll mostly be photos and interesting little facts. i’ve got lots of nice photos of christ church and today i took cool photos of blenheim palace (where churchill was born).

i will return to internet-land on thursday and i’ll be putting up a new post about words! “which words”, you ask? well, just words! haha! thursday will be the start of another regular segment in which i’ll write about words that i like, or think are cool, or find funny. knowing me it’ll mostly be ones that i find funny!

 in the meantime here is another photo of pooky and the poppet. this happened a few seconds later. i’ll leave whats happening to your imagination…

    Fun pictures! The angle that the first picture is at makes it look like the Poppet is leaning into the cat to sniff it as well.

    Hope you’re having fun with mom. Look forward to you returning to the land of the internet on Thursday.

    Absolutely adorable photos! I love cats 😀

    Have fun with your mom. I look forward to the “virtual tour” of Oxford!

    I love the pictures! I introduced cat to poppet yesterday and (Chani meet Little Red) and Chani dominated that experience. Now to find a home for Little Red that isn’t on such a tempting shelf to knock things off of.

    That first picture is so cute, the second one though… can we have another of the poppet just to make sure it survived the encounter 🙂

    What a cute picture!! I’ve been gone a few days myself, but now I’m back!!

    we’re having a great time, although its also very tiring. yesterday we went to the randolph for tea, which was very cool. she’s going back later this afternoon and then i’m back to work tomorrow again. i feel like i need a holiday after this holiday, though! 🙂

    i’m glad you guys liked the pooky pictures!

    carl, you’re right, the poppet is leaning into pooky! thats wholly unintended, but what luck, though.

    fence, the poppet did indeed survive the encounter. it was a close call, though…! the poppet is currently recouperating, though and her agent has advised her to decline making a statement. apparently she’s thinking about legal action.

    chris, later today the mystery surrounding the “word” posts will be a mystery no more! all will be revealed…!

    i’m glad you’re looking forward to the oxford posts, nymeth. i am too. 🙂

    kim – ooh we’ve gotta see a picture of chani and the poppet! or maybe just chani – she sounds so cute. is she named after the character in “dune”?

    by the way, nymeth, how do you make that emoticon with a large smile? my emotions are extremely limited at the moment with just two expressions! are there more than three?

    Great pic’s. They cracked me up.

    I’m also looking forward to your future Oxford and word posts.

    As for legal action. I’m not sure the poppet has much of a chance. I think that stare she was giving Pooky was a clear challenge and Pooky actions were well within her feline rights. Pooky was just defending her home. 🙂

    pooky wants to know if she can call you up as a witness, should she need to?

    glad you liked the pics!
