Happy Caturday


Happy Caturday, furriends!

This is a flashback pic from our time in North Carolina.

A bit of Did You Know for today:
Mom loves to sing silly song snippets at us. 
One of her favs - the Monkees' theme song.

"hey hey we're the Monkees, people say we monkey around,
but we're too busy singing, to put anybody down" ****

for any of you younger peeps who don't know it.

Also, the sticky lil peeps' song, Pop Goes the Weasel.
All we can say is, as often as we're forced to listen,
it's a good thing no real weasels are a poppin', cuz that would be.... a really huge mess!

Yes, this is our life. Mouses!


**** we just realized, that this is a really good thing to practice, especially in our current climate.

The Princess and the Pillowcase



It's really a shame when a princess can't be comfortable in her own home, don't you think?

Mom got a bit grumpy with me last night.

ALL I did was get on the bed and scrub off my paws on the pillowcase. It was fresh and clean and just put on the pillow the day before. And mom really loves high quality bed linens, so it felt just purrfect on my tiny, regal paws.

Well.... I *may* have just come from doing most unladylike business in the facilities area. That possibly might have formed the basis of her 3am complaint.

Really, she should understand, a princess like me deserves only the best! And hey, we've got more fresh pillowcases for tonight!

Happy Tuesday, furriends.

Happy Caturday!


Good morning, furriends! Today is an impawtant day - it's Chewy Review day!


Here I am supervising mom while she prepares the buffet area. As we wait, I'll give you a peek at our selection this month:


Taste of the Wild - 
did WE go wild over it? Let's find out. 


And the taste test results are IN! 

It's... Ok. We will eat it. Mom mixes it with our regular noms. One thing we don't much like is that it's got large chunks. 

But we appreciate Chewy sending us stuff to try, and report to our furriends on. As always, the reviews are unbiased and straight from the kittehs. And that's our official disclaimer. 

PS: 
Chewy sent mom something too : gorgeous birthday flowers! Thanks, Chewy. 


For anyone who wants to see the chunkiness:

Dear Neighborhood,

We hate fireworks. They make all of us here very cranky.

That is all.

Mancat Monday - Resistance is Futile.

But I'm gonna do it anyways, cuz that's the kind of cat I am. 


Moms have their little tricks, don't they?
Mostly we get to win, except... When it comes to medicine or the Stabby Place. Then they really won't be swayed by OUR little tricks. 

You see, this morning I didn't want to take my meds. Mom says I've been a real little stinker about it lately. So I ran UTB. Very effective. Can't reach me now, mom ! (Unless I lay too close to the edge of the bed, then she can just slide me right on out on our hardwood floor. Rookie mistake!)

Mom trick: lay on the bed and call for... Leia!! She knows I just can't stand for that hussy to get attention unless I get some too. It's like a light for little bugs, can't resist. I pop out, and MOUSES, she's waiting with the pill
! Just like this morning. 

Sneaky, mom. 

Note:
Last Friday I had my thyroid checked, had to double my dosage. Best part - I'm putting the Fear of the Orange into that place, I'm definitely getting a rep there.

Finally Friday


A week to furget, definitely, but we've reached the end. May we all have an excellent weekend.


Tonight, something happened that Mom haaaates: power outage. 
Storm came through, high winds, and oops there it went. 
So once again we felines leapt into action to help mom.

Above you see Leia keeping guard on the outside perimeter.


After awhile we moved the base of operations into the bedroom.
Here, you see ME keeping watch over mom.

And THEN


Oh, glorious day in the night - the power came back after about 1.5 hours.

Now, mom does also have a LOOOOVE list.
And this is extremely high on it :


O2 Cool Fan, battery operated, 10 inches. 

We have three of these guys now, one with an AC adapter. 

Trust us, everyone NEEDS these. It helps with coolness, obviously, but also with moving air around if you have breathing issues, and it's just frankly disconcerting to be without electricity, emotionally. 
And also, mom really appreciates the soothing white noise it makes, 
helps to provide a buffer around her.

It does require six of the biggest batteries, but these are green papers well spent. They can be bought from Amazon, Walmart, and a lot of other places, but the 10 inches are hard to find in stores.

*** This is a spontaneous love note to O2 Cool, no compensation here.
