Nice To Be Here -- Carnival of the Cats #115

Mycah welcomes you all to the 115th edition of the Carnival of the Cats. Not that she was going to do any of the work. Let's just say she supervised.

There are loads of great submissions this week. And so, without further ado, let's proceed to the Carnival, shall we?

Nights In White Satin

Nights? No, knights. No? Well, would you believe a bow-tied superspy in red satin? The fate of the world is in his paws — the most beauteous Gigolokitty will save us all!

Plus, a shameless GK plug at Mind of Mog.

The Day Begins

Boots and Tess get ready to party — Musings has the details.

Added: The Egoist's Morris considers exactly which day he should be celebrating.

Higher and Higher

Idempotent has a kitty that really knows how to get high. (Pretty impressive, if you ask me.)

The WordOM

Pearl at OldController provides the navel. It's up to the rest of us to do the gazing.

I Am

... too irresistable. No, not me — Mind of Mog's Bazel, of course. Bonus: Blogging with Cats, and Tomorrow.

Never Blame the Rainbows For The Rain

Kitties of many colors, at Elms in the Yard.

"Life, Florida, Whatever." Whatever? How about a fine collection of critters?

New Horizons

Breaking news — Cat Graduates from Feline School of Massage Therapy! Film at 11.. no, the film is at Catnabbit!

Lovely To See You

There are two new catblogs by new-to-blogging Elaine, Cat Care Blog and Cat Health. Check them out.

And The Tide Rushes In

Hurry, don't be late! Late? Never, for Jelly Pizza!

For My Lady

Ping does even the very mundane for his lady, at Manx Mnews.

Talkin' Talkin'

At Sisu, Babe recharges before a diplomatic mission, and has an opinion on suppertime.

Vintage Wine

Oenophiles everywhere tremble before the wisdom of Cato.

Send Me No Wine

Thirsty kitty! No drinking problem there, that's for sure.

The Actor

Bella wonders about her motivation, at Tiny Bubbles.

Music and Cats... two of my favorite subjects. Lyra does an amazing Three Stooges impression.

Butterscotch is ready for his close-up, brought to you by Mensa Barbie.

Added: Laurence Simon's mighty hunter Nardo stars in Kitty Movie Monday 8. It sounds like a slasher movie to me — I'm sure the lizards think so, too.

The Voice

Beezer understands... especially when t-r-e-a-t-s are involved. I wonder if he can spell?

Eyes Of A Child

Texas Oasis shows us an adventurous youngster. Sort of reminds me of a certain cat of my sister's acquaintance.

My Little Lovely

Michael Turner presents the very lovely Tinker. Update: now with an added audio link. Cool.

Pixel and Pasha never cease to overwhelm with their adorableness.

TsuTsu may be the cutest little thing you'll see, thanks to Personal Financial Advice.

No, it's a tie! The babies at Composite Drawlings are just precious. And, what an adventure for the little guy!

Out And In

Mostly out in this post is Nosey, an indoor cat, exploring the porch.

The Story In Your Eyes

Betsy Cat exerts her will, while Pookie Cat takes a different tack to get her way, courtesy of El Capitan at Baboon Pirates.


At White Pebble, Lucy and Satchel are a bit under the weather. Hang in there, Patti. Mycah is a sugar-kitty, too, so I'm right there with you.

At Niobium, the Tale of the Tail. Or is the the Tail of the Tale? I can never keep that straight.

Dawning Is The Day

Happy "Gotcha Day," Rafe. And here's wishing you many happy returns.

Watching and Waiting

Just you try to get past LadyGunn's Sydney. I bet you can't.

Clover, Rhett, Nicky and Willow all pull their share of birdwatching duty.

Wherever You Are

After completing the labors of Hercules, Aloysius takes some time off to see the sights, at Catymology.

Slings And Arrows

Maddie and Ivy aren't quite bosom buddies. Yet.

Are You Sitting Comfortably?

K T Cat is hard at work at The Scratching Post. I wish I had such a great job.

Cats... couch potatoes? Say it isn't so! Well, I suppose it is so, as seen at Rosa's Yummy Yums.

Hakuna and Matata are excellent examples of felis recumbens. Plus, Matata has a good time, at Blog d'Elisson. IKEA is involved.

Miss Scarlett takes sitting to a new level of difficulty.

Rocket at KeeWee's Corner picks a perch and trains his humans.

Rondi's Orloff and Pushkin "debate" the merits of footstools.

Lazy Day

Even the Lord and Master of the Apartment A-203 likes to take a little time off.

Git a long little kitty! Mr. Gato demonstrates his summertime nap technique.


RTO hits the road, and Carlos hits the sack. Maggie Katzen has the proof.

Omnibus Driver misses her travelling companion. I would, too.

Veteran Cosmic Rocker

Elvis takes a bath. I imagine he does a better job than that guy from Graceland did.

Strange Times

When it comes to haberdashery, Chocolate Chip is a real helper.

At Val's Bien, we see that Bows knows how to turn a "Kodak moment" into a reminder of every elementary school class photo ever taken. What a show-off.

No More Lies

Bagheera asks a vital question. Think carefully before you answer, or you will have to face the wrath of Huckleberry.

I Know You're Out There Somewhere

Gryphon hides at Where The Dolphins Play. Such a master of camoflage. Sneaky kitty.

It's Up To You

And finally, at Watermark, Gracie recommends high quality reading material about our favorite subject. Hint: four legs, fur, and mouse-breath.

Someone is awful tired after all that. Not moody, not blue. Just tired... time for a nap....

Me, I'm just sorry to have kept you all waiting.

Thanks, all you catbloggers for participating, and thanks to all you who are visiting. Make cat blogs part of your daily or weekly routine!

And so, until The Day We Meet Again... take good care of yourselves and all your wonderful furballs.

I love your Moody Blues theme and you picked the perfect tune for my little lovely, Tinker. In honor, I posted a streaming player under her picture and readers can click on it and hear the tune. Thanks for a great job and yet another name I can call my kittie.
