The two faces of the Ham

Hello friends.

I feel I must tell you something about that Hamlet.

In our apartment, there is ONE place I was able to go to in order to avoid the big Ham. There's a very high spot above the bed on Rumblemum's side.

The other night, while I was enjoying some Ham-free time, we discovered he could jump up and STEAL MY SPOT.

'Unacceptable!' I can hear you saying... 'how does he get away with it!'

It's because he has two faces. There is this one that I think illustrates the concentrated naughtiness:

WAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
And this face that he shows the Rumblefolks:

Who...me? 
If anyone out there knows of a spot that a Rumblepurr can be a Rumblepurr without kitten interference, please let me know *gRumble*

Pixel says, "Rumbles, come over here! It's a kitten-free zone! (Well, except for me. And you, if you're here.)

Simba said...

Oh, dear, that second picture reveals all. I am afraid I don't have any good suggestions for you, Rumbles, unless you can squeeze behind the couch or under the bed.

Mr Puddy said...

Ha..Ha..Ha...Look at his face..Funny and so Evil in some way ! And after I Look at his adorable face when Hamlet show your pawrents ! , Rumble, This is Hard Task !!!!
Kitten-Free Zone might be a bath tube, but I don't think you want to go there, Me neither !

Sparkle said...

Rumbles, there are THREE girlcats here! I don't know why you have not come over yet!

Madison said...

The mass manipulator kitteh he is. I am almost impressed, but you can do better Rumbles! Get in there and give him a big swat and then when your Mum turns around clean his head ever so sweetly :<)
Hee hee, MEOW

Old Kitty said...

I got a safe place for you...*points at cooking pot*....he he

Marg said...

Oh Rumbles, you need to have your own private spot. We would invite you over here but there are way too many cats here for you to get any privacy. We are sending all kinds of purrs to you to find a Ham free place. Take care.

The Island Cats said...

Poor Rumbles! That's the problem with brothers...they always wanna hang out with you. I'm still looking for an Ernie-free zone.

Hmmm - How bout hiding in one of the bathroom cupboards (if you have any), if not crawl into one of the cupboards in the kitchen, den close the door just enough so Hamlet can't see you in there. I see he has that "innocent look" down pat too. Poor Rumbles!

Brian said...

I am certain you will discover another ham-free zone!!!

The Whiskeratti said...

We think you've illustrated the duality of kitten nature purrrfectly. Sadly, since he's now the size of a Volvo, we don't think there is a kitten-free zone anymore!

FURKIDSMOM said...

We hope you'll find another Ham-Free Zone! We've got to admit, he's purrfected the "look"!

Sorry Rumbles, but on seeing that last photo we can't believe that Hamlet would ever get up to any mischief. At all. We think he sits neatly like a good boy wearing a very handsome face.

Pandafur said...

I hate teh way othercats takes ovar stuff. If you figure owt how to eliminate othercats let me know okai?

The Kewl~Kitty~Krew said...

HEE HEE HEE...what a silly face! We think moms lap is a great spot!

Random Felines said...

We like the lap idea - maybe she can protect you. We would offer you sanctuary, but we gots foster kittens here....

Cat said...

We think your rumbleparents should help you get your spot back by distracting the ham-kitten LOL!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Ha! That first pic is hilarious. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

We're fresh out of ideas for a Ham-free zone. Though he can't be two places at one time--do you have two large climbing kitty condos? :-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

We would be delighted to have you as a guest Rumbles.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Cory said...

Oh Rumbles...you are doomed. Hamlet has mastered "the look". The only solution is for you to move in here!

We would tell you to come here, Rumbles, but we have the same problem with the little guy Lightning -seems he is finding all our secret spots too.

Funny how they can turn on the innocence look, isn't it?

Fluffy and Heather said...

Try the shower or the bath after the hoomans have finished with it. If he's a normal kitten, he'll stay away from that area of the house completely!

Furry Bottoms said...

Aw, trick Hamlet into being interested in something AWAY from that spot and then pounce on that spot and refuse to move as long as it drives the ham crazy. That's what I'd do!

Pumpkin said...

What a little sneak! My poor Rumbles, you just come to my house. There's lots of places here to hide from Candy & EK. We can even go on top of the kitchen cabinets.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I hide under Momma's desk and then he cannot get there because I swat him when he tries,

Michelle said...

Rumbles, babe, that Ham is one slick character. One thing you have on him is the wisdom of age. You'll find another kitten-free zone before you know it!

Punapippuri said...

We wish we could help you big buddy but we have the same problem here. And boy, don't their expressions change when they think they will get caught!

Elyse K said...

Diego, you are a-dor-able! And Rumbles, I hope you get your kitten-free zone back soon or that you find another one. Hugs to you sweet handsome guy.

BeadedTail said...

Hamlet has his sweet look down pat! You are more than welcome to come here with us Rumbles! We'd love to have you visit!

Lynx217 said...

Now forget all those other ladycats and just come on over here, I got plenty of spots that brofur can't get to... oh wait, that means you might not either! Oh well, there's always the cabinets! or the closet! hahahaha

Oh my word, Rumbles, what will you do? You'll have to trick him into showing his naughty face! Or else...um...ah...we don' know :(

Lita and the boys in Melbourne said...

PS: what Madison said :) it's all in the timing...

Sweet Purrfections and Angel Praline said...
