The White Blob

Hey guys. Did you know the Red Dot has a cousin? I met him the other day…he calls himself the White Blob.

I sat and watched him for a while. Then I tried to catch him.

Rats! I almost had him!

I got you this time, Blob! Ugh…close but no cigar.

Hmmm…looks like White Blob is as tricky as Red Dot. I can see I’ve got my work cut out for me if I’m every gonna catch him. But I can be very patient….


The mom here…the White Blob is a result of the sun reflecting off the screen of my iPhone. I didn’t know it was creating a blob until I saw Ernie trying to catch it. He almost did, too…a couple of times. He’s pretty quick…and great entertainment.

I took a quick video. Not my best cinematographic effort because it was tough holding the phone and the camera at the same time. But it’s worth the watch. Ernie has got the moves!

  1. Hey Ernie, good moves pal. That’s what Sister Seal thinks is the light fairies and she is always on the alert now.

  2. Awww, Ernie is working very hard indeed. Adorable.

    Have a purrfect day and week. My best to your mom. ♥

  3. Good job Ernie! Fast reflexes (of course) and I think you definitely will get that white blob one of these days. I’m sure of it!

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. so close to catching it…

  5. What technique, what atheleticism! You nearly got it too!

  6. Ernie definitely has the moves, I loved the video. I should try this with Derry, since he’s a red dot guy. Nicki never really got the whole red dot thing.

    And on that, I do so appreciate your taking the time to stop by with condolences. I haven’t quite wrapped my head around it yet, never mind my heart.

    Take care and I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.

  10. Ernie! Love to see you in action!
    I’ve discovered the same thing happens with Da Boyz; they are supposed to be napping on my legs as I play on my phone while laying on the futon, but then they get up and start chasing! I’ve learned to tuck my phone under the blanket…LOL!

  11. Wow Ernie, you are all over that white blob.

  28. That white blob looks as entertaining as the Red Dot.

  29. If you can’t catch it , no one can.Thank you for the kind words you left on my blog for the loss of KaTwo. XO

  30. Ernie, one would think those extra toes would give you an advantage. You certainly have all the right moves. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  31. You’ve got the moves, Ernie! We bet you’ll catch that blob one of these days!

  32. It used to be safe for a cat to walk into the room. Now we gotta deal with dots and blobs every time we turn around!

  33. Ernie, Evan says he’s coming over to help you catch that white blob. It’s always trying to escape him, too.

  34. Whoa you really do have the moves!
