So we all know Marceau is a drag queen cat, but the latest evidence doesn’t really fit with his previous behavior...
Before it got so freakishly warm again (don’t worry, it’ll be cold again next week), I was using the living room fireplace a lot because A) the heater broke and B) it’s pretty. And all the kittehs love fire (Ti-Jacques a little TOO much), so all was well in the Hoo Household. Until… Monday.
Marceau comes trotting past me and for some reason, keeps his head turned to the side so I can’t see his face. My Mama-senses immediately went off, so I stalked him down and grabbed him, only to find his normally white mime-face was now gray. The crazy little bastard had covered his face in fireplace ashes! One paw was gray, too, so I know exactly how he did it — he patted it on like face powder!
So far, the theories include (but are of course open for discussion!):
- Marceau is a hitherto unknown Catholic cat, and Cat Ash Wednesday is later than people’s… and on a Monday.
- (This is DSM’s theory) He has grown tired of looking like a mime and is trying to do blackface instead.
- He is some kind of ninja commando.
So what do y’all think? So far, the only thing I’m sure of is that fireplace ashes are kinda greasy or something and won’t wash off… oh, and that cats don’t like it when you rub their head with a wet washcloth.
