I read that WordPress is not going to do the traditional Annual Report this year so I guess I will have to improvise and do my own review.
I thought I would first post some of the best photos from the Bad Cat Chris blog starting in January.
It was nice to see Chris and Frankie getting along
Chris is our resident lap cat.
Some days the excitement was just exhausting.
In June I changed jobs and had to say goodbye to the feral cats that I was feeding. I really miss them.
After seven years, Chris is still a biter.
Even with the addition of our kitten, Floki, I still think Frankie is our most photogenic cat.
Puck is not too happy at the vet.
One of Frankie’s many escapes in 2016. He knows I can’t catch him under vehicles.
Frankie may be photogenic but Chris knows how to be cute.
This is a rare group shot of all of our cats (at the time).
Frankie likes to stick out his tongue.
Sometimes you have to stop and smell the flowers.
On July 4th we adopted our kitten, Floki.
Six months later and Chris and Frankie are still getting along.
Floki has to get his shots at the vet and he is a bit nervous.
Chris has no problem letting me know that I am starving him.
Floki and Frankie being cute.
Floki came to our house with an eye issue and soon everyone had it.
Pucks favorite spot.
Frankie the stunt cat shows off his skills.
Chris is not content with dominating just Puck.
After a “good” period, Chris shows he can still be “bad.”
Floki challenges Frankie for most photogenic.

That is a whole heaping lot of kitties, cuteness, and mischief. Happy New Year, friends!
Love and licks,
Happy New Year to you too.
Love your “year end review”………..no doubt about it, you have no end to mischief, mayhem, and CUTE with that crew of yours! Here’s to a wonderful new year for you all.
Pam and Angel Sam
It is one adventure after another. 😀
These are great pictures hunny, you really capture a lot of their shenanigans!
That’s because there are always shenanigans going on. 😂
What they are not doing the annual report? 😮
That is what I read but it could be wrong.
You were correct. No annual report as it apparently takes them too much time. 😦
Hmmm I thought they had computers for that now.
That was my thought too. But apparently they’ve been crunching a lot of those numbers manually according to the post I read… working on something more automatic for next year. A real shame as I loved the annual report. 😦
I thought it was great too but it gave me a chance to write my own which turned out good.
True! I should have done a bit more work on mine but I didn’t realise there was no review post and had anticipated it xD
Oh well. I will confess my post was a last minute quickie that, luckily, turned out good.
Haha! Never give away a good secret or I might ask you to do my yearly report next year. 😼
I thought yours was much more fun tho! 🙂
Thanks. Even I enjoyed reading it. 😀
Chris, you must be my feline twin… and guess what? we can make our dads to twins too… that’s magic right? Have a wonderful 2017…
I agree and hope you have a great year.
It looks like the kitties had a great year! Well, except for the eye problem – that was a PITA for kitties and humans alike!
Chris still has minor eye problems but I’m glad that is over.
You had a most pawesome year overall. We aren’t bothering doing a year in review……we don’t feel like remembering it lol
Well, I hope you have a great 2017.
Pawsome year in review ! All the best for 2017 ! Purrs
Thanks, and to you too.
It’s been quite the year. Great pics…we look forward to seeing more in the new year!
Thanks. I look forward to seeing you too.
They all know how to be cute 🙂 Happy New Year!
Yes they do. Happy New Year to you too.
I wish you and your family, and of course your cats a happy new year Charles 🙂
Thanks Dennis. We wish you a great 2017.
I just came upon this in need of some cat (any paraphernalia) and I declare ever more to be so content in being surrounded by the abundance of cat collages available on the internet.
P.S how come my cats never have any of these typical feline behaviors for stunts or cupboard opening? They’re just dogs in cat suits.
I don’t know how typical my cats are. All of my cats, before Chris, did not behave this way except as kittens. Perhaps my cats now have used Chris as a role model.
And people say they aren’t teachable. Perfect case of mentorship right here haha
I have seen, over and over, one cat learn a bad behavior from another. 😀
Ha ! So the most we can say is they are selective in their teaching , which is only is the smartest kind of evolution.
I’m just picturing Cat College. 😀
Precisely , they seem to have proliferated quite well in your household despite their choice behaviour. And I’m of no person to judge while I hear my two noisily stick their face under the bedroom doorway to holler in
😀 Bad cats can be fun and entertaining.
It fuels my verbal abuse to call them all manners of stupid and still manage to be wrapped around their paws – What does that say about my intelligence haha
