Shaggy 'n Bob

in their own words …



The turning or bending of any wave, such as a light or sound wave, when it passes from one medium into another of different optical density.
Obstinately resistant to authority or control.
ShaggyHelp! I scaled a gigantic tree and became ensnared by this humungous blob of gooey sap!

A little privacy please

BobSo I’d just got back in from a busy evening maintaining the borders of our new territory. I woke Shaggy to pass on the local gossip and indulge in a little social grooming. Within a minute our human pops up, pokes his camera in our faces, and starts taking photos. Well really! Has he no sense of decorum? Our intimate toilet activities are not really appropriate for public display!

Keeping tabs

BobIt may come as a shock to you but there are certain skills that we felines find hard to master. One of them is typing. That ludicrous keyboard is atrociously designed – the keys are far too small for our paws. As a simple expediency, therefore, we dictate our blog to our human while he types it for us. Of course no one likes to be deficient in any skill so while dictating we also practice our typing enthusiastically, killing two birds etc. (such a pleasing adage). Bizarrely our human seems not to appreciate our attempts to better ourselves!

Bob proof-reading his last post

The risk in delegating such an important task to our human is that he may subtly distort our words. We have to be certain that our views are properly represented so of course we carefully proof-read everything!


Changing shape

Bob_webWe are changing shape! (Actually Shaggy looks like he’s changed shape already!)
We are changing to a new WordPress theme (Yoko) and abandoning 2012 (mostly ‘cos we think the comments look neater in Yoko).
Shaggy_webOy! Changed shape indeed! I was just doing my impression of the bow scene from “Titanic”.
Anyway … we apologise if any of our post formats look a little weird during the changeover, but we’ll pounce on any bugs with alacrity … we’re good at pouncing!
Bob_webAll done. Looks ok from our end. If it looks weird from your end let us know and we’ll complain to our human.

Ebook vs Paperback – the feline perspective

Birth of an idea

Birth of an idea

Bob_webWhile mousing other cat-friendly blogs I came across the Weekly Writing Challenge which led to the birth of an idea. Shaggy and I should advocate the feline perspective on the ebook vs paperback issue and submit it to the human world for their consideration.
