Whisker Humps

One of our newer blogging contacts is Kismet at The Blog of a Big Man Cat. He commented that I had big whisker humps.
Well it isn't that they are big and bumpy, but more that they stand out against the lighter fur of my muzzle.

And Kismet hangs his legs out in front of him. Good way to try to keep cool on a hot day.
Oh and his bean is from Whiskonsin, so that is good.

It has finally gotten nice enough to have the windows open again. So I have been watching and listening to all the stuff outside the house. Birdies, buns, squirrels, crickets and such. We had a nice rain this morning with a little bit of thunder boomies and lightning.
Virginger was enjoying the rain. She showed off the grapes getting bigger on the vine. Soon they can be eaten.Plus a purrty flower, mum calls it a Stargazer Lilly. A little something for my Princess.

Kismet said...

Big whisker humps is a good thing! You look GREAT with your paws out like that, Derb! And your silent lady cat friend is lookin' good.

Edsel/The Pooch said...

Kismet said...

All of these comments are making me feel bad. Big whisker humps is a GOOD thing! It is one of my most favorite things about me, and one of my most favorite things about you! It was definitely not meant to be an insult. It is a compliment! You should be proud! I think you are very handsome, Derby. I did not mean to make you feel bad. Honest. It is a great thing!

Derby, you look like Superman with your arms all out like that!

Oh, and I hope Virginger doesn't eat all those grapes!

Derby said...

Kismet, I know you didn't mean whisker humps as a bad thing. So no problem man. Guess some of the gang thought so, but maybe big whisker humps mean wonderful, long whiskers.

Flying like Superman, wheeeeeeeeee.

I think having big whisker humps is good for us hoo-la-less guys. We have to have something, don't we? To prove we're still manly, I mean!
