"Show and Tell" Time!

Mel over at came up with this great idea some time ago.  The idea is that every week, people who choose to participate can "show" and/or "tell" about something.  Then, we get our blogs put on a list of people who are participating, thereby generating more readers, etc.  Plus, it's just fun!  You can find the list of other show-and-tellers here.

I always read hers, but I've never really had a great idea for what to do for my own post.  So, I decided to go through my iPhoto and decide on something for this week's edition.  I give you...Latte!

This (above) is the very first day we got him from my Mom.  His real name is MooLatte (like from DQ), but we all call him Latte.  He does hilarious and weird things all the time!  I'll share a few!

He likes to sit inside bags and boxes! An empty pop box is his favorite, but anything will do!

He loves water! He always jumps in the shower when I'm in it, but never when Nick does.  In this picture, he had gotten himself stuck in the corner of the bathtub and couldn't get out.  So, he fell in.  Now, a normal cat would have jumped out immediately.  But Latte chose to stay there long enough that I could take a picture with my cell phone, send it to my mom and consider taking another one!  He then jumped out, getting me, Asher, the bathroom, the kitchen and the dining room soaking wet!

Here, he is pictured with Mia, our middle cat.  They love to cuddle and wrestle.

He, of course, loves to sleep.  This cheap, red Walmart pillow is his favorite.  He's been known to sleep curled up on top of it, or just use it like a human would.

Here, you can see him "helping" give Asher a bath.  It never goes well.

Here he is with Mia, again.  Sleeping in their kitty bunk beds.  Obviously, Mia is too big, but she stuffs herself in there anyway!

Here, you can see him in his other favorite spot: the bathroom sink!  This particular evening, Asher had been reading this book on the potty.  I decided it would be hilarious to put the book in with Latte and take a picture.  Obviously, Latte doesn't agree.  (Shortly after this picture was taken, Asher dipped the book in the bath's a library book.)

So, there you have it!  My first attempt at "Show and Tell!"  Now, head on over here and see what my other classmates are up to!

Welcome to Show & Tell - you did a fantastic job!!!

OMG - Latte is quite the character.

He is much like our newest kitten - Zoey. She loves the water too!

Love to see more pics anytime!

He is such a character!! I love cats with spunk like that. It is always so fun to see them zonked out inside of other things. :)

Latte is hilarious! I've never known a cat to like water, and I've had several as pets through the years.

So before I scrolled down, I saw the word "latte" and was drinking coffee and became instantly confused when I saw a picture of a cat :-) My brain has caught up now. Very very cute.

LOL! I love that latte loves water. That bath picture is hilarious.

I also love the kitty stuffed inside the bunk-bed-tower.
