Oh, what a fine interpreter of felines you are.

I like the last photo, lovely and funny!!

Andreea said...

The Red Ripper caught in the act! The poor scooter didn't stand a chance :)

Hilda said...

Oh my goodness. I wonder if he does that regularly to this particular scooter. No wonder the owner never bothered to have the seat repaired. Naughty goldie!

Already damaged seat? This is some kind of euthanasia then…

Jilly said...

What a beautiful cat. I wonder if he belongs to the owner of the scooter?

Cezar and Léia said...

He is doing the same of my Luna,he is trying to put his smell all over the scooter!
Cats love doing it!
Beautiful post!

Good job, little big Red Ripper! No worries, mate, plenty more scooters around in Italy once you're finished with this one! Just avoid VP's scooter!

cieldequimper said...

LOL! I love the end.

spacedlaw said...

Cute (except for the poor scooter, but maybe it has an addiction to cat claws?)

Jacob said...

This one made me laugh out loud, too! We've had cats like that only they didn't tear up my scooter seat but my couches. I had another friend whose cat had left his entire living room - I kid you not - in shreds!

So funny, VP!

When I was five years old, my uncle gave me a ginger cat, who I named Truls....
"Seriously", I think he is living his new life in Italy!??
I think he is hungry....
The insurance company might like to have these shots, before they pay out any money? ;-)

Virginia said...

This is why I had second thoughts a few years ago about adopting a kitten. Friends warned me. I'm glad I listened!!! These three shots are just priceless. I'm LOL!

@ Rob and Mandy - I am one of the few (three, four at most) Livornesi without a scooter, so I can happily take pictures of kitties tearing them apart!

Jacob said...

Are you sure you're Italian? With no scooter? Surely you jest. I thought y'all were running around on those things from birth! ;-))

Anzu said...

I love ginger-cat.

However it must be a unwelcome stranger for the owner of this scooter.(LOL)

Tinsie said...

Cute cat! Shame about the scooter.

Luis Gomez said...

Well now you know what gets people's attention.
No scooter? Hmmmm!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Ai-yi-yi--keep him away from my motorcycle!!!

LOL!

Asta said...

Hi there,

LOL-:)
What a funny post!
Your pictures are fantastic! You just caught him right in the middle of his doings. Great shots!

Best regards

Kate said...

In the top photo the cat looks like its ready to spring and rip your eyes out!!

Vogon Poet said...

@ Kate - At first he was watching something behind me, but he's a very good cat, if you aren't a scooter seat.
I was very close and let him head butt my hand a few times. I'll keep in touch with him...

White Oleander said...

That is one huge cat!

tapirgal said...

Your essay is so funny!

Layrayski said...

that is funny. good thing you had that camera ready for the ripping up and the asking for forgiveness phases :)

gatti rossi: i migliori! Romeo, il mio gatto rosso, ha ridotto tutto il salotto come lo scooter della foto.
bellissimi attimi da fotografare.

Funny!

Stine in Ontario said...

OOPS! I sense trouble brewing! Very nice photos of the cat.

JM said...

Great and funny captures!

Petrus said...

This cat needs a diet !!

Wolynski said...

Too funny. That cat loves his scooter and shows it by scratching. Judging by his size, he's not one of your Livorno strays.

Paula said...

Red Ripper is a sweetie! I love him!

Ellie Vellie said...

That is so cute /because this is not my scooter/. I had a cat like that long time ago.
