"Dinner at Eight"

It was a formal, white-tie and tails affair with assigned seating.
hahaha love this! My Itty loves to sit on the table, too. It's her spot.

hahahahah....look who's first on the table =)
beautiful cat and table setting, louise.
posted June 18th, 2010  
Love it!! Glad to see that my kitty is not the only one who thinks SHE owns the kitchen table!
posted June 18th, 2010  
He looks so regal.

Ha ha! Neat photo! Thanks for the comment on my picture! BTW! Every time I see the little thumbnail of your picture, I think it's you in Football gear! Ha ha!

Oh, he looks perfectly at home. That's so cute!
posted June 18th, 2010  
This kitty can come over for dinner anytime!
posted June 18th, 2010  
What a beautiful cat! And a wonderful picture too, of course :)
posted June 18th, 2010  
"May I show you to your seat?"

How cute! Perfect timing, and his face is just right. I love it!
posted June 18th, 2010  
Lol, my cats think they can get away with this too, they think they can sneak up when we're "not looking" aha, but how can you say no to something so beautiful and cute like a kitty face! ;)
posted June 18th, 2010  
oooh, that is too funny!! love it!!
posted June 18th, 2010  
I love it! How cute. Definately made me smile. What a pretty white kitty.
posted June 18th, 2010  
It looks like he is in charge. Beautiful cat. Nice photo.
posted June 18th, 2010  
And Dill was dressed for the occasion... beautiful!
posted June 18th, 2010  
I simply adore this, Louise! Dill couldn't look more handsome!! Brilliant shot! ;-)
I want to write more, but I've had a long day. We drove almost the whole afternoon, tracking down the hardwood floor we wanted, plus Jeremy got the outside of the house painted today. The Missouri river is only 5 min. away from us, and there's lots of restaurants right on the riverfront. Once we move there, I'll share photos from the area ;-)

Good night ;-))

P.S. Tao says "Hi" to Dill. ;-) He's just getting his dinner - better late than never ;-)
posted June 18th, 2010  
LOL! This is SUCH a great shot! Dill seems to be wondering where his fellow diners are and when dinner will be served.

Thanks for the pep talk on my photo today. Sometimes looking at all the beautiful work here, it's hard to remember we all go through our down days. Tomorrow's always a good chance to try again! :-)

hahahha dont leave me out lol love it
posted June 18th, 2010  
Haha, really fun shot! Dill looks so dignified.
posted June 18th, 2010  
I think Dill is thinking, "I plan to sit here all night until they set a place for me - hmmmm see who gives in first"
Wonderful photo!
posted June 18th, 2010  
ahhhhhh these cats! as for my picture kerouac and neal are freedom and the lure of the open road....john lennon .....dreams.....and bud and lou are just fun! but if you look a little deeper they are all tragic in their own way.
posted June 18th, 2010  
and Dill had his assigned seat, as well - right smack dab in the middle of everything!
posted June 18th, 2010  
I think Dill was the guest of honor!
posted June 18th, 2010  
HAHAHAHAHA! Dill is awesome!!! Love him!
posted June 18th, 2010  
Per Your Comment: Yes squirrels seem to be great models and they are very fun creatures I love watching them in my back yard. Thank you very much for your very kind compliments. Your cat looks very amused by the way. Great Capture
posted June 18th, 2010  
What a regal looking kitty! This scene just captures my attention.
posted June 18th, 2010  
It seems as if you are surrounded by cats! What a good way to be...
posted June 18th, 2010  
I'm sorry, did you say "white tie" or "white fur" required??? looks like you'll need to add one more place setting! love the mantel in the background...one of my favorite things to do is explore the room in shots like this.... :P
posted June 18th, 2010  
What attitude he has,I can see it in his eyes, I think you are the guest in "his" house,lol.
posted June 18th, 2010  
this pic made me LOL...what a perfect place for a kitty! And such a face! By the way...i've fallen behind on 365...just now responding to your comment. Now I have to put "Broadway Rhythm 1944" on my netflix list! Wild!
posted June 18th, 2010  
Hope Dill had a place set for him! Looks lovely setting and he really is just so cute.
posted June 18th, 2010  
He appears displeased that there is not yet food on the table.
posted June 18th, 2010  
awwww love this---the cat looks so regal :)
posted June 18th, 2010  
Heee heee hope you all enjoyed the dinner! What a lovely capture of little Dil!
posted June 18th, 2010  
So classic! I just love his paws.
posted June 18th, 2010  
Love this!!!
posted June 18th, 2010  
Terrific shot - FAV!
posted June 18th, 2010  
Table for two? He's very serious about his duties.

and yes, I do love the back and forth of the 365. I feel like I'm making friends. Wash U is right down the street. I work in Creve Coeur. Warrenton's just a click to the west.
posted June 18th, 2010  
hehe, so who assigned the seating? Dill? lol. Gorgeous shot Louise, he looks like he's just daring you to try and move him :)
posted June 18th, 2010  
That is adorable. He looks like he would be very upset if the seat placement somehow got mixed up!
posted June 18th, 2010  
love this! made me smile!!
posted June 18th, 2010  
LOL!! So fitting! At least someone comes when you call them for dinner!

Thanks for tipping me off to the monarch. I'm so glad that people think of me when they see one! I had seen it and become a follower right away.

Adding this as a favourite!

Re: milkweed - I'd be more than happy to send you some seeds in the fall! I have some from last year that I overwintered in the fridge but they don't seem viable. You might want to plant swamp milkweed, which is not as invasive but really beautiful. I have that as well. Thank you!!
posted June 18th, 2010  
Great photo. Dill's thoughts are screaming "Just try to move me!" How wonderful that he could join you for dinner.
posted June 18th, 2010  
she/he looks like a perfect statue (other people have floral centerpieces but i always figured you as being different...this i mean in a nice way)
posted June 18th, 2010  
Well, like I said, I do believe it is Dill's home! He's just allowing everyone else to visit. haha! :)
posted June 18th, 2010  
Really wanted to pop by and say ...well done on appearing on the Top 20 page! Wow! I still aspire with every shot to be on the popular page and must admit to being disappointed when I'm not but also I say...must try harder! I think over the past few months the bar has raised considerably. I'm not into photo editing so that makes it even harder sometimes. Now this new page has set new personal targets,,,so well done you, Louise!!
posted June 18th, 2010  
Do you know what growing zone you are in? They are just starting to make milkweed available for sale here in Michigan. It is considered a weed so it's hard to find places that sell weeds LOL. Look for a butterfly garden in your area and they should be able to tell you where you can get some, or they may offer you seeds or plants. I have a garden group and I often give some away to whoever is willing to grow it. I am not sure when you can plant there, or when the seed pods might develop. Ours don't come till fall.

This is a fantastic shot Louise! I love it! I left a close up of Kodak and Murphy on my blog so you could see what they looked like.

Louise, your postcard arrived today and I want to thank you so much! It's just beautiful! You are such a dear to send it to me. I will hang it near my computer. And again, let me know if you ever need some milkweed seeds and I'd be happy to send them along. Thank you!

the table arrangement is so inviting...it looks cozy too..and with the company of this white fur snowy beauty..it will be a very nice dinner indeed...(with candlelight I think it's a dinner function..:-))..fave!
posted June 19th, 2010  
The look the Dill's face is: "I've been waiting here for 10 minutes. *You* are late. The dinner is cold now." narrows eyes, "You have ruined my dinner plans."
posted June 19th, 2010  
Haha this is adorable :) When I first brought home my car Garfield he would try to get onto the table too. But he stopped real quick when we started spraying him with water whenever he did, hehe.

Thanks Louise commenting my lantern pic. I will enjoy the games of this weekend, Japan tomorrow and Brazil on Sunday.

Yeah, the kitty is so pretty. I'm not surprised why your distinct neighbor likes your company, he knows well a lovely person you are! Have a nice weekend!

Hahaha, his expression is so formal, he looks more like he'd be your maitre d' rather than one of your dinner guests!!
posted June 19th, 2010  
Love the way you coordinated the candles with Dill's formal suit.
posted June 19th, 2010  
Louise I have a feeling from your last note, that you think my anniversary is June 19 but I have a whole month still to go. I will save your good wishes for the big day!

Whew...I am tired from scrolling down so far...that's what I get for not keeping up with my comments while away last week.

This is just the most precious shot...this cat looks like he would totally rule any roost he decides to set foot in. On the thumbnail I thought it was a statue...such perfect posture!

Last night I uploaded 8 photos...gosh it was so frustrating last week not being able to comment except from my phone which is less than ideal since it takes forever but mostly frustrating b/c I could not upload my pics....well, I will eventually catch up on things ...at least now I am on summer vacation!

@katswhiskers Thanks for giving me a reason to go back and relive some of the moments on my calendar! Yes, I laughed (and grabbed the camera!) when I saw this, too. It probably can only be appreciated by another cat lover!
