Camera Critters #73 Pet Pride Monty and the jigsaw

Both Winston and Monty like to see what's going on in the house. 'What are the humans up to now?' they ask each other and follow us around. Recently, I've been doing jigsaws. Every so often I revert to childhood and while away (waste) a few hours testing my powers of observation. I like to do them without reference to the picture on the box but Gillian prefers to study the picture. As she was staying with us recently, the picture was on show.
Winston likes to jump onto the jigsaw board, stretch his claws, sharpen them and then settle down to watch and eventually sleep. Monty leaps onto the jigsaw, clambers into the box of pieces and scrabbles around then walks across the partially complete jigsaw and lifts the blocks with his claws. After that he decides that he can do as well as the humans so picks up the pieces in his teeth. Eventually he lies down on the jigsaw making it impossible to fit any more parts.

We discovered three pieces were missing as we neared completion - h'mmm . . . MONTY!!!

Many thanks to Misty Dawn and Tammy for hosting Camera Critters and to Bozo and his human for hosting Pet Pride.


  1. Monty, my sister does jigsaws, do the pieces taste good?? I may have to try that soon, thanks for the tip. You are very handsome.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  2. Sasha - you know how to make a chap blush . . . I think they taste a bit fishy. Let me know what you think?

  3. I used to LOVE to put together jigsaw puzzles, but methinks trying to do them with a cat nosing around could be most frustrating.
    Hugs and blessings,

  4. hey monty... now you sure have thrown down the gauntlet to your human to finish the jigsaw!

  5. storyteller - it's one way to realise I should be doing something more constructive (ha ha ha!) - like stroking the cats. Cats will not be denied!
    Bozo - it's certainly a challenge but wouldn't life be dull without challenges?

  6. I used to love jigsaws. I haven't done one in a long time but you've peaked my interest again. Pretty kitties :)

  7. Denise - I have phases of doing jigsaws. I mean, it really is rather a pointless exercise since they're broken up when finished. Some people frame them and hang them up as pictures but that doesn't appeal to me.
