more stuff

I must get this off my (manly, hairy) chest right away: Massah-in-Law has a blog up and going again, but it's called SURREALIST HEPCAT. What?! Hepcat? Is she helping CATS?! And is she going to be on The Surreal Life? I went there and I don't understand any of it! Maybe it's in code...?! I'm quite confused. And significantly concerned, especially since CAT is in the title.... I'm going to sit down and have a heart to heart with her tonight, particularly since I've been spending so much time with her lately:

I love sitting on her.

Her lovely, lovely lap.

Anyway, I have been doing other things too since we've moved. I lay on this pillow a lot. I call it Mr. Substitute Ottoman and I quite like it.

I also spend time looking out the windows.

And snuggling with Motch.

And Mean Sister Fig has even let me cuddle up to her a couple times since we've been here!

I think it must be because she's so tired.
I also spend an extraordinarily large amount of time with the camera in front of my nose here. For some reason, Massah-in-law think it's hilarious to take pictures of me and then show them to Massah and then they laugh and laugh until they cry and their stomachs hurt. This was the latest guffaw-inducing shot:

I don't know what's so funny about it. I think I look very wise.

NO TAD! NO CATS!!!! hepcat is just a cool hip 1950s beat lingo term. and if you REALLY want to know about surrealism and all that stuff, i'll discuss it with you, but just so you know that's one of the reasons i love visiting you because i can relax and get all the thesis crap out of my head!

but i must admit i'm surprised that you haven't questioned me before about my thesis (since you have a sis too) and my master's degree (since i'm a massah-in-law, not a master-of-arts!)...

Tadpole, you look smashing sitting on that big green pillow. Like the little Prince that you are.

I must say that you & Fig are adorable all snuggled up together. Reminds me of me & Penny.

Your BFF,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Tad.
Yes, you need a good talk with Massah-in-law to clear things up! For now, this sounds surrealist for me!
I never thought I could see lovely pictures of you and Fig! Seems that you love each other! Am I right?
Have a nice day

Peanut said...

Hmm I went and looked and I don't understand that stuff massah in law was writing. Mom said it was very good though. I love those pictures of you and Fig.

Ruby Bleu said...

OK, I can't be bothered looking at Massah-in-law's site since neither you nor Peanut understands it. I'll send Mom over to check it out tho.

Those pictures of you and Fig!!! OMDoggie they are the absolute bestest. Maybe she is starting to like you? I hope so.

And that last picture of you...well, it had my Mom laughing like crazy. I'm not sure why, I think you look quite dashing myself!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

That green pillow looks pretty comfy man.


PS We saw a wanna be Tadpole in the new Ikea catalog but he was NOWHERE as manly as you.

Frasypoo said...

Hi Tadpole
I thought you looked wise in the last picture too !
You should frame that one with you and Fig !We visit Figs blog every day but some setting does not allow us to comment so we gave up!

Toby said...

Oh Tad, I must agree with yah. What oh what in the world is so funny about that last picture?? I would say you not only look wise, but you look oh so cool!!

Humans....can never really "get" them.

Your massah in law is going to be on The Surreal Life for Cats??!!!?? What? VH1 really needs to rethink their programming.


Poppy said...

Mr. Substitute Ottoman looks to be just the right size for you, Tadpole. I wouldn't give it up if I were you. Take it with you when you leave!

In answer to your question about my sweater, I had to wear it because we live in northern California. Summer at the beach in NorCal is all about sweaters and blankets and fog. I didn't eat the sand, but I sampled the iceplant. Yummy!


The Airechicks said...

Oh Tad:

You look like your enjoying being a Motch's place .....

Green is your color...look really good on the ottoman..

Fig is diggn' be in there too...

Tofu Burger said...

Hey Tad... C-A-T's? Can't even say the word, gots to spells it. I'll send my mama over to massah-in-law's blog. I don't want nothing to do with them.

We are wayyy more dignified than them... take look at your photo! Might as well have glasses, smoking jacket, and a brandy in hand. Very wise.


Seadra & Zoe said...

We love the pictures of you and Fig.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Tasha & Eva said...

It's good that you have been cheering up Massah-in-Law. Give her a snuggle from us.


Stanley said...


This is Stanley's girl, Lisa. I'm sure you hear this all the time, big boy, but you REALLY ARE more smoochilicious than any dog I have ever seen!

You and Fig look so cozy and sleepy together. She definitely needs some extra snuggling since Sadie went to the bridge, and you're the dog to do it! (Good job, little brother).

I see you in those photos with MASSAH-IN-LAW and MOTCH and wish I could get a little Tad time in with you. Maybe someday...

Ok. Gotta go. Stanley's taping his claws at me, wanting to get onto the computer.

Love ya, babe!

Stanley said...


It's me, Stanley.

Sorry man.

My girl appears to be an even bigger goober than *I* am.

Goob love (and major eye rolling),

Ricky Pepper said...

Tee-hee! My mom loves the paint colors in your temporary abode! Tad, I think Meanie Fig might actually like your bald buttocks. Thanks for complimenting my highlights...mommy luuuurves them too :)


Casper said...

Hey Tad, we LOVE LOVE LOVE that last pic of you. You are the MOST HANDSOMEST DOGGIE EVER!!!

(PS- this message is from Nikki and Winnie- the girl doggies in our house)

Joe Stains said...

are you passing gas in that last photo or what? Looks like your temporary home is pretty comfy! I am almost not believing those pics of you and Fig, did you photoshop those?

Amber-Mae said...

On no! Cats??? You know what happened to me today? I came to greet one of my bad bad kitty sis & you know what she did to me? Ofcourse she hissed & then she gave me two hard wakings on my my nose until her long, sharp needle claws sunk into my flesh & now there's a piece of skin torn from my nose. I didn't understand why she did that to me...Hmmppff! It was painful ya know. CATS should be murdered even if they are nice to us, as long they are cats they all MUST be terminated!

By the way, you look cute sleeping on your Massah, must be comfortable eh? Heehee...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

coco said...

HAAAAAAAAA! You look very funny in that last photo - you little palomino pony-dog!

kissie cuzzie kisses, coco
