Blue Cat Hides Out


Sometimes you just need to stay out of dangerous situations. You might think you can handle things, but why take the chance? If you’re trying to lose weight, you just don’t need that pack of Oreos staring at you every time you open the cupboard, and you don’t need to go out for a loaf of bread if it’s blizzarding outside.

Blue Cat was in the same situation this weekend. He wanted to hang out around the house, but there was danger there. Danger in the form of a seemingly cute 2-year-old. Danger that looked like this:


Wanted for Crocheted Cat Kidnapping

She may look cute, but she’s been known to kidnap crocheted cats and give them too many hugs. So Blue Cat stayed out of trouble – waaaaay out of trouble – by keeping his distance from danger.


Is it safe to come down yet?

So do yourself a favor and stay out of danger’s way. You – like Blue Cat – will be glad you did.

Blue Cat and the Portal Cake


Blue Cat was invited to a birthday party earlier in the month, and they served the cake from the video game Portal. The cake was not a lie (recipe from here), but it did teach Blue Cat a few things:

It looks good, but 737 calories and 63 grams of sugar per half-slice?

I’d eat more, but I’m stuffed…

Blue Cat made a new friend at the party – looks can be deceiving, but Blue Cat thinks his friend ate a whole slice of cake.

He may be small, but he’s a mighty eater…

There was a bit of cake left, and it was in the refrigerator for a little too long…

Sometime the cake takes on a life of its own…

and so Blue Cat had to take matters into his own hands…

Take that, cake!

(Yes, there is a bit of cake missing – Blue Cat suspects his sumo friend had a last nibble before the creature was dealt with.)

Blue Cat learned that you need to know what you’re getting into before you start a project, and what the results might be. We think a course in risk management is in order. And a lot of exercise.
