  12. "Wiley Knapp Likes to Leap" is totally a children's book. With apologies to the late Dr. Seuss...

    Wiley Knapp likes to leap!
    He leaps on beds where people sleep.
    And while he's leaping on the bed,
    He leaps right over Cecil's head!
    He'll leap up here, he'll leap up there,
    Why, Wiley will leap anywhere!
    When Wiley's out of quarantine,
    He'll leap for Charlene Butterbean!
    He'll leap up onto Laurie's lap,
    That lovely leaping Wiley Knapp!

  14. Me too, Waheeda -- I swear, Laurie, this is possibly the most hilarious kitten post you have EVER done! The photo after photo after photo of little feet hanging in midair -- oh my, how do you get ANYTHING done with this batch of kittens around????

    ReplyDelete
  15. Those skinny little legs and pot belly kill me dead.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I agree, those skinny legs and belly are just too much! What a cutie! How you manage to get these photos astounds me. I would hardly be able to hold the camera still from laughing at his little stretched out legs. And great leaping effort by Sylvie too!

  17. Best post ever. You have outdone youself, Laurie.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I agree about this being one of the best posts ever - with the exception of Linus Medley looking out the window. Great action shots, and I love the way Cecil is watching Wiley. Very funny.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ok, confess now...that's not really a bed but a trampoline hidden under a bedspread!!

    And then the tongue picture made me laugh even louder!

    Kath - Best.kitty.poem.ever!! :)

  26. I was starting to think you were just holding him up just out of the shot until that almost full body one.. My goodness he gets some air doesn't he??

    and can there be anything better then jumping on the bed??

    ReplyDelete
  27. My windows are open as I read this post, laughing out loud at the bellies, gangly legs, kitten feet... Neighbors must think I'm the crazy cat lady. Wiley is such a perfect name for this tiny jumper. Kath's poem--brilliant.

    Thank you for truly brightening my days.

    Thank you for the laughs, Laurie! This is such an awesome set.

  35. Those are some really excellent shots of kitty tummy. And that last one with the tongue! Adorbs.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Funniest photo series I've seen in ages! Fierce legs, Wiley. I can't imagine what you're going after out of frame ...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Brilliant poem, Kath! And Laurie I agree with the others. The composition in this set is absolutely hilarious! Would you give us a clue how you did it? Seems like you'd have needed a tripod or an extra set of hands to incite leaping while snapping the shutter.

    1. No tripod, just me, a camera and a feather wand.

  38. Laurie, I really do hate to criticize, but I'm beginning to think you may have chosen the wrong surname for this batch of itty bitties. Wiley, especially, doesn't seem very disposed to (k)napping. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. That boy sure can leap! Love those little legs and the podgy little tummy :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the little toesies! Thank you, and Wiley, for today's chuckle.

  41. The truth about Wiley Knapp is that I can't handle the truth! He's like a funny little muppet

    ReplyDelete
  42. Laurie - that is the funniest post you've ever posted. I love these kitties.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh my gosh, I was laughing at the photos of him leaping and then got to the end about his tongue and his nose. totally unexpected ending which made it PERFECT!

    Hugs from Karen in California.

  44. oh my - that's just awesome! made my day!

  45. I'm interested in putting up some photos in my apartment that will make me laugh and I've added this collection to my list of hopefuls. Are these available for purchase from your flickr account (or elsewhere)?
