it's the little things...

Thursday, August 11, 2016


like taking hiiiiilarious photos of your cat.

Since getting my Fitbit I've started jogging in place a lot. What I first considered "cheating" in terms of getting my daily 10,000 steps became something I do quite often. It's a nice break from working on the computer mid-day and it certainly gets my heart pumping.

So, the other night I'm running in place in front of my window air conditioning unit because that's the only place to do it and not instantly overheat and out of the corner of my eye I notice Professor on the bed going absolutely nuts. He's darting around, jumping straight up in the air, and genuinely just looking crazy. It takes a second before I realize my phone is reflecting light onto the ceiling, and he thinks he can get it. While I jog, to keep my mind off how boring it is, I play games on my phone. Currently Dots & Co.  I immediately ran out of the room, grabbed my camera and tripod, and set up to get what turned out to be some of the funniest shots ever.  I literally spent my Saturday night laughing so hard I had tears streaming down my face as I edited these. I hope they make you smile too!

And finally, Professor falling off the bed. You're welcome!

PS. His bowtie by PETS by Carvas + if you need more photos of him in it - see here!

  2. Oh my gosh, that first photo made me giggle and scrolling through the rest of the images made me laugh so hard. Especially the last one! Professor is hilarious :)

    The one on the right, just above the one where he's about to fall off the bed, is killing me! Hahaha! Looks like he's laughing at the light, like "I've got you now"-insert evil cartoon character laugh. What a cutie!

  6. That bow tie is the cutest thing ever, oh my god. I basically need one for all my pets now. I really want to get a Fitbit soon - running on the spot sounds like the perfect excuse to not leave the house

  9. Oh my goodness, these are hilarious, what a kook! I love one of the last ones where it looks like he's cackling. My cat chases the light from my phone too, but he doesn't get as daring as your guy!

  11. I hadn't even got past the first photo and I was already smiling at Klaus in the background, hahaha! This post definitely brightened up my evening. I like to think Professor sticking his tongue out is him noticing you laughing at his light catching attempts ;-)
