Someone New is Joining the Fun

A few weeks ago, I was concerned when I started getting comments on my Blog from someone who had become an "Allred Fan"   

Are you kidding me!!!

I mean Seriously...... ALLRED

Allred has a fan base.

Luckily, My Vickie has had a chance to email with this very confused soul and through the emails, they have become fast friends.

Allred, of course totally supports this friendship as do I and with a little bit of convincing we have gotten 
Sankissjuice  to start her own blog.
Sankissjuice (Sun Nee) is from Malaysia and is in Vancouver for her graduate school. So if you get a chance head on over and welcome her to Blogville.  We are pretty sure you will become followers after the first time you meet Darwin and Einstein.   So CLICK HERE and head on over for a visit.

Now I don't want to take away from all this focus on Allred (you know, the pictures and such) but Murphy and I played tug-of-war the other day and My Vickie thought you might like to see what a good sport I am.  I mean Murphy is big and he plays really hard.  I mean, I think he wanted to jerk my head off, but as you will see, slow, strong and still wins the race.

Happy Sunday Everyone.

Allred fan base. Is it a fan base of one? I will go check this "fan" out anyway.
I think Murphy just had mercy on you Bert.

harrispen said...

Hi Bert, Looks like your persistence paid off. I'll pop over to visit you friend too.


The Cat From Hell said...

Ahem! Me is a fan of Allred! Me thinks he is the bestest naughty cat (next to me)
And me loves that yous posted pictures of him and me LIVED the video!

You know, cats secretly think they run the world, so a fan club is not that far of a stretch--We just let ours believe it, but we know the truth, just like you do! :-)

Sankissjuice said...


Your strategy really worked. Conserve energy until the time is right! I have never seen a doodle like Murphy. He is really unique.

Thank you for promoting my blog. I am your humble follower and I worship you on my altar. Hehe


PS I think Allred caught my attention because he is so feisty, a total opposite to Sasa. You two have a great dynamic!

Sankissjuice said...

Hehe, I am still laughing at Goose's comment. Well, a fan base of ONE is still, technically a fan base, right?

Goose has a great sense of humour. It must be why you two are such great friends.

Murphy said...

We popped over to say hello! Couldn't get the video to play.

Your friends,

Murphy and Stanley

PS - Guess what? We have webbed feet!

Allred may have more fans than you think

We think Allred is secretly trying to take over the fan at a time.

Declan said...

You know what Bert mate? Mum thinks Allred is sooo handsome. crazy huh?! Deccy x said...

What a shaggy hairdo Murphy has! I love it, I wonder if it would suit me?

The Furries of Whisppy said...

That video of Murphy's head jerking moves had us laughing!
We must admit we are fans of Allred too. ;)

georgia little pea said...

Dear Bert, you know I think (for a cat), AllRed is rather magnificent (or perhaps I mean maleficent). But I think that's where I will draw the line. Dogs rule. (That's like you and me and that handsome boof Murphy.) Nuff said.

Mitch and Molly said...

Murphy likes the jerky method! You're the winner, Bert! yeaaaaaaaa

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Bert, we caught Penny checking out photos of Allred the other day too!! Sheesh. Loved the tug o war video. NO worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Molly The Wally said...

Hi Bert we did pop over to your friend to show our support , always hard when you are starting out!
Best wishes Molly

Catherine said...

Well I must admit, I never met a cat I didn't like. And although I have never met Allred in 'person', I'm sure I would enjoy this grumpy faced kitty. ;)

I will go check out your new friend.

Have a happy week!
xo Catherine

Mango said...

Gads! He could have pulled your head right off and I'm not kidding.

I am horrified that there are Allred fans out there. Conspirators with the devil, that's what they are.


Nerissa said...

Guess what, Bert? You won an award! That's right... an award! Yoo-hoo!!! Check it out on my blog. purrs

Wyatt said...

Good one, Bert! You have to wait until your tug opponent get's distracted and go for the final tug! Is that an Olympic event?


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OK Bert... EVENT though Allred Scares the CRAP outta me... I went to his...
FAN (note Singular) and am now the 6th follower... I even commented with that word varification thingy being on... I suppose that must be some SECRET Code between SUN and Allred... Aiiiiiiiiiieeeeeee
MOOOOOOOOOOOM .... please come chean my chair.. it has a BROWN SPOT on it.

Bert, the best part of your win is that you don't seem to have had to work anywhere near as hard as Murphy:)

Happy Sunday, we will stop by and say hello to your new friend.

The Army of Four said...

Way to win the Tug-o-War!!! Ha roo!
We're sure glad Sun Nee is blogging now! She has left so many nice comments on our blog - it's great to get to know her and her family a little better!
That second pic of Allred is KILLER cute! Seriously. Why aren't the girl-cats lining up, swooning over him?
Play bows,

Two Doodles and a Dane said...

hehehe, love this!

OMD you and Murph have a BLAST!


Meeka said...

Way to go, Bert. You're the King of Tug-O-War.

Carol said...

Murphy is big and he does look like he plays hard, but you showed him.

The silvers and more

snoopy@snoopysdogblog said...

That was a brilliant video Bert - all that effort Murphy put in and you just calmly took it off him - Tee Hee

As for Allred having a fan, I simply don't know what to say - I'm lost for words!!

Have fun,

Your pal Snoopy :)

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

You mean like an Allred GROUPIE? Wot is this world coming to? Mom thinks Allred is cute (this be a woman wot thinks earthworms is cute) but I SWEAR she is not in the fan club. I will not allow it.

NCmountainwoman said...

Way to go, Bert!

Patrice and Higgins said...

OMD, Allred has a fan base?? I will not tell our Front Porch Dweller that likes to be called Fred. It would be no good for me for Fred to think that other cats like him are in this world!! Grr.


Lorenza said...

You won!
Happy Sunday!
Kisses and hugs

Keith Andrea said...

I think Allred is handsome...isn't it?
