Stiff Upper Lip and All That

What’s the difference between a cat and a Brit? One is finicky, overly concerned with grooming, emotionally reserved, impeccably mannered and enjoys a quick nip. The other is a cat.

Quite right, Groucho (black Persian) and Kelly M.!


  1. The original GoldenEye.

  2. brinnann says:

    Giving us the StinkEye.

  3. Is that the James Bond theme music I hear ?????

  4. Pip pip!

  5. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Eevil kitteh is eevil. I think he wants my lunch.

  6. skippymom says:

    Whatever you want, kitty! I’ll do whatever you say–just don’t look at me like that!
    (pees pants)

  7. Fird Birfle says:

    Hoooooh BOY that they-uh wuz funneeeee skippymom!!!!

  8. Elena1030 says:

    Oh, my word, did Sauron just acquire another eye?? And ears? And whiskers? Somebody warn Frodo and Sam!

  9. victoreia says:

    That’s a kitty with some disapproval!

    (P.S. love the comparison!)

  10. Kitty is all in your face: toodle -oo and pip pip get me my tuna spit spot!

  11. Alice007 says:

    *wraps self in Kevlar* *dons protective gloves*

  12. Standing by with first aid kit.

  13. victoreia says:

    Standing by with mop and bucket.

  14. brinnann says:

    *averts eyes from the carnage*

  15. MerryCat says:

    Organ Harvesting team on the way.
    POP gurgle gurgle glub glub. Chianti is poured and breathing.
    Groucho reserves the right to the giblets and liver.

  16. EHarrah says:

    Good luck! I salute you. *Hail Britania playing in the background*

  17. tracylee says:

    Kitteh’s eyes look eeeeevil
    Help me, Dog! Save me!

  18. How rude!
    True…but rude!
    Us Brits do not have such fabulous eyes though – what a gorgeous (slightly eevil) kitteh.
    Off for a cuppa tea, a jammie dodger, and a jolly good bout of “Let’s-Mock-Those-Vulgar-Americans”. Toodle pip!

  19. Some of you do have very nice eyes indeed. There’s a normal distribution. :mrgreen:

    Hey, if this doesn’t bring Hon Glad of the woodwork, what will?

  20. ashagato says:

    yea, really!

  21. warrior rabbit says:

    Normal distribution — they all have two? ;)

  22. Indupitably!

  23. bookmonstercats says:

    Mostly….. we have occasional, very strange, slightly in-bred looking populations in remote areas. Odd in such a small country, but true. We refer to them as “three-eyed” (v rude, I know)

  24. diddleymaz says:

    like Norfolk

  25. I was thinking Hampstead myself. :P

  26. TrixandSam says:

    Theresa, last time Hon Glad went MIA (resurfaced 2/7/2011), he had been laid up at an internet-less home nursing a sore foot. Do you think he had a relapse???

  27. I hope not. Better he could be making a nuisance of himself on a beach in the Greek Isles or Mallorca, or something (see the pic in my posting above; or this: )

  28. Fird Birfle says:

    *prays sincerely for HG*

  29. Ah yes, the Brits. All that, and one drink (or ‘nip) away from this:

  30. :mrgreen:

  31. I got scared there for a minute, Brits + drink often = full monty.

  32. Also, one of them pees on your front door late at night.

  33. And then you have to stand in the tea chest and sing “Jerusalem.”

  34. PS: Alan Rickman Cat says “Do not disappoint me.” :evil:

  35. ashagato says:

    such a cool looking kitteh! LOVE

  36. Hello. I am Disapproving Kitteh. Do not anger me.

  37. Right?
    Quite Right!
    Your bloody well right
    You got a bloody right to say….me I don’t care anyway
    (Supertramp – the epitome of British wordly-wise)

  38. Noelegy says:

    Something tells me he’d like to have kippers for breakfast, mummy dear, mummy dear. :)

  39. Fird Birfle says:


    (“and the other one is a cat” = HA HA HA HA and furthermore, HAHA!!!!)

  40. :twisted: That kitty needs a snorgling :twisted:

  41. bob drummond says:

    That feline does remind me of two different people
    -Darth Vader
    -and the Ayatollah Khomeinie.
    I’ll take Vader any day of the week!

  42. Remember that scary book by Stephen King, “Cujo”? This is “Catjo”.

  43. he looks like darth vader :)
