Tight Lipped Tuesday #17

Three days to go before the collar comes off.

Any cuddles gratefully received, even if it’s from somebody you’ve only just met.

    Are you using your moggy to chat up strange men?

      That’s an idea. Not this one though as he ‘belongs’ to my daughter and is the same age too 😉

    Love this: it looks like the image on the shirt is like Henry’s ‘thought bubble’. He does seem strangely relaxed, though…

    With all my cats, I don’t have one that would let a stranger hold him like that! Hell, they won’t let *me* hold them like that! I hope Henry is freed from that collar very soon.

    The countdown begins! What a relief for Henry when that collar comes off.

      It’s a good one isn’t it?

    If only his mates could see him now. What a softie!
    Great T-shirt by the way…

      Yes, love that t-shirt.

    Your cat looks just like Jones too!

      Haha! Took me a while to think who you meant but now I get it.

        🙂 Don’t know if you realised but Mr Hicks was named after Hicks the marine.

      • #14 by tialys on September 8, 2019 - 10:48

        No, I don’t think I did realise – or if I knew, I’d forgotten. I guess you’re a big Alien fan then.

        I was, but I also used to use the names of the marines in Aliens as passwords. That somehow got into the discussion of what to rename Hicks when we got him from Battersea (He was originally call Scholes! After Paul Scholes.) and the girls latched onto Hicks because he was the hot one. I always said I’d name my next dog Hudson, but Harry was a good name and his recall so good, I wasn’t going to mess with it.

        Thanks for the explanation – I like a good back story.
        All those ‘Hs’ bring to mind (vaguely) my neighbour in England who gave all her sons names beginning with ‘D’. Devlin, Darren and Denvil. I was perpetually confused.

      • #17 by Dartmoor Yarns on September 9, 2019 - 13:28

        Crickey! What a choice of names! Let alone all the Ds. What was her surname? Did that begin with a D too? I hope so.
        Having another dog with a name beginning with H does mean I occasionally call him Hicks. But then I used to accidentally call the girls Hicks when they were at home too – so maybe that’s more to do with my insanity.

      • #18 by tialys on September 9, 2019 - 14:49

        No, funnily enough, her surname began with an ‘H’.
