"Tis the season to be silly!

A warning to all my feline friends who have been made to look ridiculous by their beans - it's that time of year, called the funny season. Look out! My mommies have gotten "The Look" in their eyes. You know what I mean? The look that says "What can we do today, to create a laugh at Shrek's expense?" This photo is of me in a Springbok supporters jersey. My one mommy is totally rugby crazy. The beans' Springbok team won the World Cup in 1995 and again last year, 2007. They had family from England visiting at the time and they still can't resist rubbing their faces in that great victory. Especially as the Springbok Sevens have won in Dubai and George - again thrashing them Brits big time! (Or so my beans say!). I am just waiting for my cousin Alfie to get on line. But he must wait for his slaves, Rhythm&Blues to co-ordinate themselves to be in the same place at the same time, but this is more difficult than said!
Oh boy, here come my mommies with the Santa suit! But first I post this scenic shot:

This is Table Mountain as seen from Blouberg. Taken by Rhythm&Blues on their 2008 trip to Cape Town.

Oh, and by the way, my beans would like to thank Ann and Zoolatry for making all these wonderful changes to my blog. We could not have done it all on our own in such a short period of time! You girls rock! I just had to re-load my blog list because that disappeared into the ether.

Oh no, a Santa suit? She wouldn't make you wear a beard and boots, would she?

We can see why they call it Table Mountain!

Shrek said...

I fear not the Elf outfit! I fear the Santa outfit!
