Copernicus debuts with MC Hammer dance

leave a comment »


 

Copernicus has finally arrived in Oakland! He’s stepping up big time in this stop motion video to pay homage to Oakland native (just like himself) MC Hammer and the song that seems apropos to the non-stop living that this cat displays on a regular basis. If you haven’t gotten a Da Bird for your cat yet, you are completely a bad cat guardian…and worst yet, a terrible person for not giving your cat(s) this glorious cat activity to fulfill his/her/their otherwise drab and dreary, most of the time banal lifestyle.

Why don’t you take a page out of MC Hammer’s 2 Legit 2 Quit remix and Copernicus’ victorious and legendary no quit attitude and buy your cat this toy! Better yet, just dance to this song first, then go buy the toy!

It’s Friday and a joyous time to send out the love because Caturday is around the corner! Woo-hoo!

Here’s a few lazy afternoon images of our cats, Jhumpa and Copernicus!

Jhumpa definitely is the queen of laziness. Add this image to her loungy photo session.

Copernicus still loves the laundry basket…why? Dunno, but he’s sold on it and has been since he was a kitten.
One of his many “buddy guy” quirks.

Perni Look

Recently had another spell of inspiration from getting another Canon 5D (sold my original last year) and married it with a 50mm Zeiss 1.4 ZE Planar. I had the old 5D with a Zeiss 35mm (excellent glass as well). This Fifty though…creamy and soft when wide open at f1.4, and sharp and crisp when stopping down.

Understandably, more catshows will be coming.

Birth-Caturday

Caturdays are celebratory days for cats and cat guardians (that’s me and my wife). Not that ownership is a derogatory or demeaning terminology, but we’re very appreciative of having our furbabies arounds and quite thankful to have them in our lives while taking good care of them as they take care of us.

January 12, 2013 marks the day that our Copernicus turns one years old. We found him in March of last year a little after his two brothers were adopted as we were arriving at Berkeley Humane. He really has given us a lot of joy, comfort, love, and laughter. And, he’s recently learned (without our training or asking) to jump on our backs and hang out. It’s quite hilarious. Add it to his quirks, I guess.

Happy Birthday, ‘Perni…you are, and forever will be, my buddy guy.

Our Copernicus recently turned 10 months old. So much happiness has happened since he arrived in our home. Here’s a quick look at the cuteness suprema! He reminds us a lot of our cat, Cafe con Leche, who passed away earlier this year. He’s never going to replace her and her wonderful spirit, but he is full of character, charisma, and cuteness.

These were taken a week after he came into our home. We were invited to our friends’ house to have a viewing party. Paola and I thought it was a good idea to put a bell on him just in case he decided to hide. However, around these two photos of him in the kitchen, about 12 people were standing by, eating and mingling. The oven was on and he couldn’t help but nestle himself next to it. He does this now when our oven is on…evidence of him doing that to come soon.

The images below are of him recently growing into his comfort zone. He wasn’t able to jump onto the credenza two months ago…and I knew that once he was able to, that was going to be the end of the world. He’s found a great spot on top of the airport device (of course, it’s nice and warm).

One creepy, but very cute thing he does now is stand behind the tv, on top of the airport, and looks at us through the mirror. He hides, then peeks…he even does it when he jumps into the tub and watches us behind the shower curtains (queue stalker music from Jason).

Copernicus is like every cat. Lasers are intriguing to them. But I never saw this coming until last night. We usually play laser with them. And just run the laser up and down the floor and in circles, but when I began to go back and forth with the laser THAT quickly, the moment became clear, VIDEO NOW!

We love calling him stupid or stups sometimes because the fact is, he’s too cute to be stupid! Doesn’t make sense, but that’s our buddy guy!

Enjoy!
