Cat Mummies and Mephistopheles

This post may contain offensive material, so be warned.

Some of my guests at the picnic wanted to look at the cat mummies in the university museum and there was also a request for it to be unwrapped. So, here they are, only that we couldn't convince the curator to unwrap it fully; he would only consent to unwrapping the head for our viewing.

The following is that of the mummy of a kitten, together with the xray

The next one is put up on Charlie's request. It is her favourite fountain in the University ground - the Mephistopheles Fountain

I apologize if this post is a bit morbid but if you know SS, it is sort of in her nature......

Sheesh Pyewacket, you are SUCH a baby. You didn't run away when we helped Trixie dress up as a mummy on topcatrules for the Halloween competition.
And you just sniggered at Her dressed up as a skeleton for the I Dare You competition.
Ya big sook!

Oh, guess what I'm holding? Yep, the keys to Dragan's pink BMW!
"Dude! We got the car!"

"And along came Scarface claw! Yowllllll!!!"

First we want to apologies. Roscoe and I are very embarrassed about the cat mummy incident. He really didn't think about what might happen when he grabbed the string of the mummy. He really should have known better as he has unwound a few toilet paper rolls in his day. We hope that we are permanently baned from the University. If you want, I can leave him home the next time.- Opus

Mi scusi (mee skozie, Italian for excuse me). - Roscoe

Sorry we got the party off to a late start. The humans got home at 2am and there wasn't any chance that SHE was gonna turn on the computer for us. We are ready now, come when you can.

I am very fascinated by the cat mummy!

Sassy Kat said...

Ah, yes that cat mummy. What a fun memory boy that Roscoe sure ran when he saw the museum human running after him for unwrapping it. Wow I didn't know that I could run that fast myself too. See you soon at the Mafia party in Italy. I guess the humans were bad and wouldn't turn on the puter for the boys. Come when you can I will be there for the long haul. See you soon.

Look out your window, do you see a hot pink BMW? It's Dragoan's and we have borrowed it again. We have some cans of Dr Pepper to take to the party. Hurry up and get ready, we are taking you.
Let's teleport to Italy!

Hey, those mummies are pretty cool, actually. I think it's very interesting that those Egyptians realized that cats are so important that we should be gift-wrapped even after we go to the Bridge.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
