Noll's Amusement

Noll's tail offers him
endless hours of amusement.
Here he is, staring at the curled tip
that hovers inches from his face.

Noll on the Bed-Box

The leopard print kitty bed-box
we received for Christmas is THE in place to be!
Room for only one, prepare to take a number.

Here I am, napping away the afternoon. 
Can you say "coiled cozy and tight?"

Unfortunately, timing is efurrything.
And, if you're lingering over your breakfast pate,
(like Tiggy often does,)
You'll never be first in the bed-box!


Noll is a Proud Member!

Noll was recently inducted into The Naughty Kitty Club. 
Not that he's just recently become naughty; 
Noll has been naughty for years. 
But now, Noll has a place to hang
with his fellow feline naughties! 
All hail to the kitties and cats
who give in to their every impulse =^..^=

Thanks Amy & the House of Cats!
I loves my badge & I loves being NAUGHTY.
I can't wait to read efurryone's exploits
and add a few of my own ;)


Noll's "Showing Some Love" Award

I got this lovely award from handsome Jack, the Husky puppers dog (http://sscyber-sibes.blogspot.com/)
I am especially thrilled because, here in the Nip Patch, huskies are near and dear to our hearts.

The rules of this award are to award it to five blogs which
 "show some love."
Like Jack, I agree that all the blogs I follow speak love in volumes.

So, I'm going to be a Casanova
and give it to some of my special lady friends.

Baby @ Lisa Lisa & the Cat Jam (http://lisa63artist.blogspot.com/)
Angel @t a Wizard & an Angel (http://awizardandanangel.blogspot.com/)
Kia & Momma Kitty @ the Rustic Ranch (http://rusticranch.blogspot.com/)
Katie @ Glogirly (http://glogirly.blogspot.com/)
Daisy @ Daisy the Curly Cat (http://daisythecurlycat.blogspot.com/)

Now it's your turn to show some love.


Noll Gives Tiggy Control

Last but not least, to my litter mate Tiggy,
I give control of my blog, and the post of honor.

Tiggy and I are as different
 as day and night,
as Yin and Yang,
as Peanut butter and jelly.

But we complement each other purrfectly!


Noll Grants Uncle Keaks the Same Favor

And to be fair, (which I always am).....Drum roll please!

I proclaim January 16th
"Uncle Keak's Day."
I have created a marvelous banner for him
and, this front row center spot on my blog.

Uncle Keaks is often referred to as "The Best:" 
As in, "Keaks, You ARE the Best!"
The best behaved and the best in temperment.

Which begs the question, "Compared to Whom?"

(Certainly not Moi, the Kitty from Heaven!)


Noll Recognizes the Big Guy

Luigi has noticed that he's not getting
 his due on my blog.
(doh, that's because it's "MY" blog!)
And seeing that he can whomp
the puss 'n' boots out of me,
I gladly pronounce on January 15th,
Noll's Nip will hereby be known as
"Luigi's (half-butterfly) Lip!" 

Noll's New Motto

"I can't wait until tomorrow
 because I get
better looking every day!"

With special thanks to A Few Good Cats
for this excellent motto!

Noll Gives the Answer

Thanks to all for playing along.
Eric and Flynn, your answer made me smile.
Mr. Hendrix, you are correct. 
Auntie Darlene, you are also correct.
The correct answer:  Noll's tail is #1 & Tiggy's is #2.


Noll's Tale of Two Kitty Tails

A tail is a cat's pride and joy.
It goes perpendicular when happiness happens.
It switches, it twitches then curls like a coil.
A tail is a cat's personal play toy.
Like a man's clothes, a tail makes the cat!

Floofy or sleek, plain, striped or fat,
A tail is as unique as the cat that's attached.
Take a look once, Take a look twice.
Guess if you must, Give up if you'd like.
What I want to know, truth be told
Is, can you tell Tiggy's tail from Noll's?


Noll's Winter Wonderland

The sun shone warm and bright. 
The landscape resembled heeping swirls
of marshmallow whip.
 How could anyone resist the temptation
of walking on this sugary confection?

Look at my face. 
Am I not serious? 
Do I not mean what my face conveys?

What if I fist-pounded the door?
  Would you believe me then?
I demand out!

It's not at all cold.
This is a Tai Chi pose
I call the tripoding cat.

A little snooping under the deck,
and I am soon acclimated to the winter wonderland!

I am brave.
I am hearty.
I am one with the snow!


Noll on the Stairway to Heaven

The stairway to Heaven,
is adorned with cats.


Noll Resolves:

 to be even more
HANDSOME in 2010!
