The majority of us know to keep our bums away from the camera, especially during the month of October. One of us kitties, however, did not join our ranks until last January, so he is ignorant with regard to the Tock-Tober tradition. Cooper Murphy has no clue, but we are fairly certain if he did, it wouldn’t matter. He’s pretty much of an exhibitionist at all times. At this very moment he is lying on is back with legs akimbo, exposing himself. For the remainder of us, this is a good thing. We didn’t have to worry about keeping our rears to the rear, so to speak!

For his first Tock-Tober Cooper Murphy did find a clueless friend to share the spotlight. And Cooper’s photo is somewhat modest for him.


Cooper Murphy andsSquirrel show off their tocks for Tock-Tober.


If you are new to blogging and unfamiliar with Tock-Tober, here’s a bit about it. And if you don’t know, “tocks” are your buttocks!

Normally, we would be joining Annie (McGuffy’s Reader) and Ellen (15 And Meowing) for Friendly Fill-Ins, but we didn’t want to dilute the importance of this International holiday. We hope they will accept our apologies. Mom says we can include the fill-ins with our Caturday Art tomorrow.

We know many of you have been showing off your tocks all month, but we hope to see lots more of them today.

Happy Birthday at the bridge, Derby. We hope you are looking down on all of us with a big smile your face.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and the “clueless” Cooper Murphy

Looks like Cooper Murphy got the hang of it! There’s just something extra-special about ginger tocks!

Mr Cooper Murphy and Mr Squirrel,
You 2 have much furryier tocs than me.
Mommy forgot that Toctober was for Mr Derby. I am surprised that she actually got the day right. She has been missing so many things these last few months….

Very well executed tockage Coop! Like the squirrel tocks too but then again, they are ALWAYS “tail-up” and exposing their bits!

Hugs, Teddy

So that explains a lot! Now we know what Tock-Tober is. Hmm, methinks I’ll have to check for some with the hope they weren’t all deleted! LOL!
