Saturday Scribbling

I love pencils.

Being a cat with many toes, I can almost hold one.




Mom Julie saw me with a pencil the other day and grabbed her camera to capture my success if I was able to do it.



First I had to get a good hold




Again, a good hold




Oops, dropped it on the floor. For pete's sake, would you put the camera down and get my pencil, please?




Okay, let me try it this way




Guess not. Oooh, this eraser sure tastes good!




Never mind. I'll just have to practice when I don't have that flashy thing to make me nervous!

That's right! How are you to concentrate with that flashy thing blinding you every other second? MOL.
Just make sure you don't eat the pencil like what Mommy's cousin's dog did. Hahaha.

Are you ever good with that pencil! I'm a pen mancat, myself. I love 'em. I even collect them. I store my collection under the fridge. purrs

Chewing is probably better than drawing anyway! Mom has never shared her pencils with us so we don't know for sure. MOL

I wonder what you'll write once you get the hang of it.. MOL
Hmm, I wonder if Leo, with his extra toes, would like to try writing..

Truffle likes to play with pens.

Mary said...

Well.. you're indeed talented Tom! If any kitty can do it.. you sure can. :) I love pencils too. And pens, and sharpies. I have quite a collection. They're such fun, and enable us to be so creative.. don't you agree? Have a wonderful weekend, friend!

Kjelle Bus said...

Good grip you got there , Tom :)

Tamago said...

Yeah that flashy thing! I know you can hold it when your mom does not have it :-) You sure look like enjoying the eraser. Does it taste like chicken?

sagechronicles said...

Just be careful you don't get too proficient with that pencil, Tom. You might end up doing all the writing for your Mom's book as she dictates it to you.

Stupid cameras, always getting in the way!

I'm sure you'll get the hang of it soon

She sure is persistent with the camera! Your feet are wonderful!

Um, it really is easier to write your life story using a computer keyboard. Especially if you can get your Staff to do the typing.

Isn't it funny how the folks spend lots of $$$$ for kittie toys that we don't use and we find so much more interestings to do with our time. Great job in mastering the pencil. Well done!

Katie Isabella said...

Oh you look like a CPA sweet Tom! Have you figured it all out yet? xxoo

meowmeowmans said...

We believe you can use that pencil, Tom. The camera makes us a little nervous, too. Hugs!

Cathy Keisha said...

You're so talented, Tom. You do need your privacy though in performing such a trick.

P.S. Mom Julie says even I can hold a pencil and learn to write, you might not be able to read it, hehe
