Well hello there felines.  So I goes to my tunnel in the wee hours of the morn...and what do I find?  There waiting for me was an ostrich feather!  Can you believe it felines?  Theese one is a good one! 

Neytiri was the first one to put the "official bitey" on the ostrich feather!  And she was quite taken by it...

Of course, I myself had never seen a big feather that was so fluffy before so I couldn't help staring at it for awhile...But don't worry felines, I did put the bitey on it and tried to eat it after I got over the initial shock!  Do any kitties out there have an ostrich feather that they like to play with? 

Join me each TUESDAY felines for other magical and mysterious appearances in my tunnel.

Well hello there felines.  So I goes to my tunnel in the wee hours of the morn...and what do I find?  There waiting for me are Ping Pong Balls forming a Letter "C"!  Can you believe it felines?  I was very excited about theese one!  

Here I am checking out the ping pong ball...

And here is Neytiri getting her "ping" on ...or is it her "pong"?  We'z not exactly sure but our Welsh-speaking tuxedo friend Austin knows all about it!  Theese ones make great toys...especially in the wee hours of the morn!

Join me each TUESDAY felines for other magical and mysterious appearances in my tunnel.

St. Paddy's Day

Well hello there Audience!  Happy St. Paddy's Day to you all!  Before all the festivities get underway this fine evening, Uncle Cloon has some tips for you...

Make sure to incorporate a few drinking party games to spice things up!  A few Mini-Mugs of Green Ale will act as an icebreaker for felines who may have wallflower tendencies, increasing one's social prowess and allowing one to circulate oozing intelligence...

Make sure to follow the Leprechauns this evening...they always know where the best parties are.  If a Leprechaun befriends you, run off with his hat check out his gives you privacy to plan your strategy for the evening, take a cat nap or...

View the PAR-TAY from a unique vantage point!

To really get the party started, try playing "Spin the Duck"...

Warning: When one finds oneself with theese expression on one's face...PAR-TAY over! 

Today would have been our beloved "Girlfriend's" 13th  Birthday.  Please join me in raising a Mini-Mug of Ale to "Girlfriend"...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
The line forms here for the kisses...

Well hello there felines.  So I goes to my "tunnel" in the wee hours of the morn...and what do I find?  There waiting for me is ...Mini-Cloon!  Can you believe it felines?  I was besides myself with excitement!  Not only is my tunnel off strike and back up and running again (a.k.a...the bribe worked), but it created a mini-replica of Yours Truly!  Isn't that fantastic felines!

Here I am posing with Mini-Cloon...Note the striking resemblance!  Watch out world...a takeover is imminent!

Join me each TUESDAY  felines for other magical and mysterious appearances in my tunnel.

Whisker Hump Wednesday


(Please envision Clooney breathing with ease through his nose with a healthy respiratory system...Thank you!)

March 6, 2012


Hello there felines.  So I goes to my tunnel in the wee hours of the morn...and what do I find?  My tunnel is still on strike!  Can you believe it felines?  Even after presenting my tunnel with a lucky bamboo, I guess that the luck just didn't rub off...So theese time I had a big brain storm...and I am pulling out all the stops!

I know that money I decided to pay my tunnel cold, hard cash to get it up and running again!  Nothing like a wee little bribe to "grease the wheels" so to speak.  I presented my tunnel with a $1,000,000 dollar bill!  Yeah, that's heard me felines... 

I went into my Secret Research Laboratory and printed a hot one right off the ol' press...One of my hobbies is "printing money"...(uh but don't tell the Authorities...OR MY TUNNEL!)  Let's see how theese one works to cheer up the tunnel, shall we?  

Join me next TUESDAY felines to see if my magic tunnel is off strike and up and running again.

I loves me ham!
I do!  I loves it, Cloon-I-am!
And I would eats it from a "tunnel"!
And I would sips it through a funnel!
And I would eats it in my Laboratory...

And I will eats it on the Red Carpet...
And the photos will go to market!
And I would eats it day and night...
Oh yes, oh yes, it is so right!
Oh how I, Oh how I...
Loves Me Ham
Thank you!
Thank you,

On The Red Carpet

Clooney: (Tap, tap and then in a Bridget Jones voice...)
The, uh.., mike's

Neytiri: Let's turn it on, shall we?

Clooney: I'd like to thank the Academy for my Oscar The Furries of Whisppy for presenting me with The Versatile Blogger Award.  I do believes that I am "versatile" as I have my paws in many pies, so to speak...But enough about me...The Furries of Whisppy have a wonderful blog with a very special Mommy who helps stray and feral kitties.  The Furries are all very photogenic and the action shots taken of them are amazing!  You must go on over to visit them!

As Neytiri was being photographed by the Paw-Purr-Azzi on the Red Carpet, she was Tagged!  Out of the corner of her eye, she caught a glimpse of Austin Powers  Austin the Welsh Tuxedo Mancat  fleeing the scene.  Now Austin has awards coming out of his ears...let's just call him "The Artist", shall we?  But deservedly so folks because he and his Human Caro are uber-clever.  You must go on over to CATachresis to be entertained and impressed!  Now we will answer the questions that we have been tagged with:

1) Describe yourself in 7 words:
Clooney: easy on the eyes, intelligent, a character 
Neytiri: fluffy, tomboy, persistent, sweet, humble, enchanting, independent
2) What keeps you up at night?
Clooney: boredom
Neytiri: Clooney
3) Who would you like to be?
Clooney: A Zoo Official
Neytiri: An Entomologist
4) What are you wearing now?
Clooney: If you purchase a Clooneymobile, I'll tell ya...
Neytiri: Rabbit fur
5) What scares you?
Clooney: Going to the V-E-T and the vacuum cleaner
Neytiri: Only that heart balloon from Valentine's
6) The best and worst of blogging?
Both: A chance to have fun and be silly and making great blogging friends is the best.  The worst is being behind in visiting blogs.
7) Last website you've visited:
Both: CATachresis to get the tag questions!
8) One thing you'd change about yourself:
Clooney: I'd like bigger biceps...
Neytiri: I'd like to live somewhere tropical where there are more insects.
9) Slankets or no?
Clooney: Only if they make them in Argyle...
Neytiri: Definitely not!  Although I'd like to see "Ducky" in a slanket! (Do they make them for ducks?)
10) Tell us something about the cat that tagged you:
Austin only speaks Welsh but writes haikus in the guy talented or what?

Oh and we're back...Ok Audience, it's a double whammy, we tag The Purr Diaries and give them The Versatile Blogger Award too!  If you haven't been over there, you must visit their blog!  Sarah is a very talented artist and has two very irresistible Mancats: Bosco and Oliver. 

And now returning to our regular OTRC programming...  Here are our Awards/Picks from the 84th Annual Academy Awards:

1) Neytiri's Warm Fuzzies Award goes to Meryl Streep and her classy acceptance speech (we likes our Meryl here at Headquarters).
