POOR KITTY.

Poor kitty?!? More likely 'poor kitty' just deliberately dusted its face with snow and fluffed up its fur immediately before sitting there to do the puppy dog eyes thing in the sure knowledge that an extra helping of something tasty was sure to come its way....

Cynical about catz, moi?

Actually, to me that cat is making more of  a "oh you did NOT just lock me out..." face rather than a "I can haz door open now, plz? kthxbai" face.

Or perhaps a "Hey!  You forgot to shovel the back yard!" face.  Much of cat facial expression-reading seems to involve movement.

I associate that particular fluffed meatloaf look with a cold cat hunkering down to wait*. Though the eyes could also be saying "What? Not the eyebox! Open the damn door!"

* The Woodinville house would often loose power. If we were home this wasn't a big deal - well if I was home - because the wood burning brick oven could heat the whole place. But if we were out, it was funny how much friendlier the cats would become. Once, I came back during a power outage to find the house 40 F, and all five cats curled up together on one chair - just a mass of ears, eyes and noses.

Cats are a cowardly, superstitious lot.

Earlier in the week, during Car Disaster Night, I managed to be six hours late getting home (and providing the habitual Tunafish Treat).  By the time I'd returned, the cat had established a Cargo Cult, and had sacrificed a  mouse for my return.


Though, to be fair, it worked.

Best laugh I've had in a long time!

(Even better than last night's German class where someone's 'Das Wetter war schlecht' was heard by all the Brits as 'Das Wetter war sh*t', which got the meaning across admirably, even if it did reduce half the class to tears)
