Kitties With Thumbs

You know how experts say to keep your blog focused and relevant?

Yeah, well, fair warning: this blog post has nothing to do with writing or reading or... anything other than cats with thumbs. I suppose it is slightly connected to my novels, though, since one of them does have a cat. It doesn't have opposable thumbs, though.

Enjoy.



And if you are looking for something a bit more reading related, might I suggest Naina Gupta's fun novel, The Bollywood Break-Up Agency? Very entertaining, and on for a great price on both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.

See, I did manage to get something reading-writing-related in there. Happy Monday!

  8. lol! Let me tell you, mine can open doors and one who picks up small balls--in both paws--and tosses it. They all sing, too, well sorta, when I bring out the milk carton.

  9. I love cat adverts. They are so aloof aren't they, so arrogant! But I love 'em, lol.

  11. Excellent! Cats are clever enough without opposable thumbs!

  12. Can I just tell you how incredibly entertaining I found this? What does that say about me?

  13. Heh!
    Love me some cats - especially cats with thumbs. It's only a matter of time before they take over the world

  14. JOGON, KITTIES.

    Actually, some cats DO have thumbs, they're called polydactyl. (They're also called Hemingway Cats because Hemingway had several, I suppose.) Not opposable, though, sadly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polydactyl_cat

  17. Ha ha! Thanks for posting this, Talli. Brilliant!

  18. I'm terrified. Thanks so much, Talli, now I'll have nightmares about my cats getting into thumbcat gangs, and terrorizing my kitchen. No pie will be safe.

  19. I LOVED this advert. I am known to make the 'discovery meow' sound myself. Anything for amusement.

    ReplyDelete
  20. OMG, that was hilarious. I can't even imagine my Evil!Kitty having thumbs. I'm sure he'd murder me in my sleep.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That was funny! There goes his milk.

    ReplyDelete

  23. Oh no. My iPads acting up and I can't see the ad. I'll try later though. I realized just before I read your blog that I'm getting tired of just reading book blogs and need morebthat are fresh and your Tallinn is just that. I never know how you gonna do it but you always entertain me. Props.

    ReplyDelete
  24. omg is that a real commercial?? LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I haven't seen that advert before - cute and funny, perfect!

    And experts say a blog is meant to have a theme, um, how about a nice pretty theme rather than a topic - does that count? lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hah! Oh, I needed this today. Thanks for sharing, Talli! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Blah, blah...focused and relevant. I say keep it interesting and fun! Loved it. Happy Monday...well, almost Tuesday now!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hilarious!

    Anyway, its okay to break the rules now and again. We're allowed to have other interests, like cake, and handbags, and stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great! I'm going to have to post this on Facebook!

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOL!!! I loved it! Thanks, Talli :)

  31. Cute cat and good commercial! Checking out your llink for Bollywood Breakup Agency.

    ReplyDelete
  32. This video cracked me up; thanks for posting it! I especially liked the part where they're snapping their...um...paws. It also speaks to my slightly irrational fear that cats are out to get us.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I adore this advert. Tim Curry's voice over is brilliant too. I find that Cravendale usually make some of the better adverts these days.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You make everything entertaining Talli! Cute cats, but your original story about the squirrels was the best! Julie

  35. Love the cat ad - have never seen the whole thing and now the end bit we see on TV makes far more sense!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Sometimes posts should be about something irrelevant, just so we can smile. Funny avert!

    ReplyDelete
  37. "Gangs of cats with thumbs" - I love it! How cute - thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  38. oh, that was hilarious! Thanks for the kitty chuckle this morning. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. AHAH! I've seen that video before but it makes me laugh every single time. So, so cute (and a little scary). Ditto what some of the other commenters said - please write a book about cats with thumbs. Maybe a cat matchmaker who brings together two clueless humans with its thumbs.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Brilliant!

    The cat rules in our house for sure. xx

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, that's brilliant! I love the one reading the book on military strategy!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My blog is focused on the random : ) I don't think that's what they mean but it works for me.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Cats are always relevant.

    ReplyDelete
  44. That was super! More cats on the internet make it a better place to visit. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. So cute! I can imagine all the trouble Abbie would get into if she had thumbs! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ha, oh wow! That was great. Thanks for sharing. :D Makes even cats seem ominous, eh?

    ReplyDelete
  47. HA! Now that was funny! If cats had thumbs and prehensile tails, we might be a little lower on the food chain.

Coffee and wine for all!
