Tortie Tuesday

I'm good at lots of things like holding down furniture but I'm not so good at things like scratchers. I have claws and all but I just don't understand how they work. My little sisfur is so good at them that she sounds like she's popping popcorn. Today might be the day I finally figure this thing out...
I'll try it from a position I feel secure with, from the floor...
Dagnabbit!
Slippery little sucker...
Guess it goes to show that we can't all be good at everything. I may not have the scratcher gene but I have lots of Tortieness genes! Our diversity is what makes us unique, interesting and beautiful in our own way. Celebrate what makes you special!

Hope you enjoy your Tortie Tuesday!
Isabella

We all have the scratcher gene here, including Binga!

Sumi has the scratcher gene - her (new) scratcher already looks shredded! Sammy is more like Isabella...:)

I don't care if you don't have the scratcher gene, you're still the cutest tortie I know

Marg said...

Oh Isabella, you are just so cute. Some of us don't get the scratchers. We are back again. The computer tried to misbehave but we fixed it. No time off for the puter. You all have a great day.

Isabella, try one flat on the floor instead on inclined. That may do the trick.

you're right Isabella - we all have things that make us wonderfully unique.

Oh Isabella, my new little Tortie kitty has yet to get the hang of the scratcher but I'm trying to teach her! So far she just ignores it! Maybe you could come give her some lessons in trying!

Wow, those things look mighty tricky!!! It's important that you and Angel each have your own hobbies, as well as share some.
Happy Tortie Tuesday!
Yours sincerely,

You should never have to work that hard so scratching is something you really don't need to learn how to do. You're purrfect just like you are.

Have a fabulous Tortie Tuesday Isabella. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥♥♥

Maybe you would like one that lays flat on the floor, or maybe your nails just aren't all that long. Just so you're not practicing on the furniture...

you are so cute! Did you think that maybe you just don't love scratchers? I am one of those cats that doesn't love them. Love, Cody catchatwithcarenandcody

Good try at the scratcher. You are such a cutie.

Isabella, such excellent advice for all of us, cats, humans and even woofies. Being cute excuses us torties from being good at everything. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Hey, not every cat likes the ones on the ground.. maybe your scratcher is one that is standing upright..

You're so right, Isabella. Our differences is what makes us all special. Though I'd love to give that scratcher a nice scratch. ~Wally

We're a lot alike cause I'm not into those scratchers either Isabella! You are a very special and unique kitty! We missed you and Angel too - sending lots of kitty kisses and purrs. Love, Moon xo
