Cats That Think They’re Hiding

A few weeks ago the Ellen show did a segment featuring viewers’ cats who thought they were hidden but weren’t. The gallery can be seen here:  http://www.ellentv.com/2012/11/09/gallery-of-the-week-cats-that-think-theyre-hiding/ It’s too bad I didn’t hear about it before because my cats are very good at getting themselves into places that perhaps make them think they are being stealthy. Nigel is the one most often caught in strange places. I think I will have to being taking more pictures to document his places! Here are just a few of my favorites:

Take this decorative hat box down to dust and Captain Nigel of the USS Polkie Dot steps in in all his solemn, serious, glory.

And when standing guard gets tiring, it's time for a nap in perhaps the most uncomfortable looking "bed" I've seen.

Nigel lies in wait for someone to come by...it really gets in the way of my laundry soap making!

Nigel strikes this very serious pose every time he sits in something. He remains statue-still for minutes at a time, probably unde.r the assumption that as long he's still he won't blow his cover

Not to be outdone, this is what happened at Christmas. Oscar doesn't usually hide in boxes or bags, but when he does, he takes it very seriously.

This one took a bit of acrobatics as I did not move the baskets from under that shelf…he had to dive in head first and do a flip from inside the baskets to get here. Again…the statue pose.

A different sort of statue pose, this pose involves more of a bat-like approach to hiding amongst drying clothes. He has not attempted this in a few months, but this was a regular occurrence for the first year or two of his life.

CatSitter

Yes, yes…hiding from the squirrel on TV is a perfect way to sneak up on it. Well played.

Uno

Levi is perhaps the least stealthy of them all. His approach typically seems to say “If I can’t see them, they can’t see me.” I see uno fluffy butt there, buddy.
