It’s probably best if I leave you to interpret the photo.
Only 4 days left to enter the competition!

i’m not a cat person but you have a cute cat.
my roommates have three cats and they like to cuddle with me sometimes. i like cuddly cats more.
Was that the box you kept him in?
He is almost definately thinking “nightorday, nightorday”.
I was more thinking ‘Not again, Seb, not again.’
Looking like a mellow me. Cute cat. Haha.
He’s probably wondering how the fuck he’s going to get down off the bench without hurting himself!
I have a really fun story to tell about Eric and climbing on/off things.
Let’s just say it’s normally a case of trial and error. But I’ll save that for THE Eric Entry, coming sometime after the competition.
It’s very, very funny watching him climb up onto a table that’s not actually there.

jellybaby has it. “Why can’t I feel the ground in front of me? Has the ground evaporated? Am I UP on something? Who the hell put me up here?”
You’re mean to Eric. I think you should let him come and live with me.
is that one of erics bribes next to him??
Yes, that was Pink’s female ‘just add water’ cat that she sent to try and win the competition. Eric saw right through the ruse, however.
Pink & Tina — It’s actually surprisingly hard to place a blind cat on a bench made of slats — his legs kept falling through the gaps…
you weren’t supposed to add water….there’s where you went wrong…
double mean. nasty Seb.
SO mean! But he’s a cat so part of me is okay with that.
Oh… you mean… you sent a live cat… and by adding water I kind of… ruined things?
If you met Eric, Tina, he’s more like a dog. Incredibly obedient, follows you everywhere, likes being slapped hard on the side instead of stroked… odd, old boy is Eric.

Lies! You not a cat person, how could you lie to me like that Seb. I’m hurt. Wounded.
Clearly you are a true blue cat person. Don’t be ashamed, just embrace it.
I LIKE cats, I’m just not a cat person. I like dogs just as much (maybe more!), my mother just doesn’t want a dog, so I’ve had to settle with cats.
There’s a vast difference between liking cats and being a cat person.
It’s like the difference between gently scratching a cat behind the ears and and dressing it up in a lobster suit. It’s a big difference, damnit.
a cat who is like a dog is just perfect.
because i like both. equally. it’s possible.
You can’t ride on the back of Eric, though (well… not for long, it seems). And it’s unlikely that he’ll fend off any thieves that come hunting around our estate at night.
His eyes are more red the his ears…. is that a good thing? cause im not sure about cats!
I think that’s because he’s been crying…
“If I jump off this chair and end it all, would they really miss me?”
“If I try and look really sad, will all the cute kittens want to cheer me up in their own special way?”
(If he is anything like you, I’d bet on the second option…)

seb oh seb, what did you do to poor eric????? he looks rather…. sad.
I think he’s plotting on how to swim across the Atlantic so that he can come live with me and wear pretty clothes and become a movie star. (his voice will be done by Leonardo DiCaprio and his romantic interest will be Drew Barrymore)
Please tell Eric that I love him. And give him a kiss from me.
Wow, his very own animated feature film, Hannah? I think you might just have won his heart for the competition with that one. Though he says John Candy would be much more ‘him’. Even if he is dead, and a bit… fat.
Drew Barrymore just happens to be like… one of my fave girls ever. Drew and a younger Lindsay Lohan.
I got my mother to give him a kiss, Pink. He’s not used to me showing him affection; didn’t want to freak him out.
Maybe we can make a cat version of Uncle Buck and we’ll give little Eric the title role.
OK. You get out the necromancy book, I’ll go get the funding.
it’s out and ready to go, lol

This comment has nothing to do with this post, but I had no idea how else to get in contact with you. I thought your comment on my blog was spam for a minute, but then I clicked on your name and can see that you are definitely not spam. Kudos to you for being a real, live person. Ha.
How did you find my blog? I am so confused….
Your kitty is precious.
