Happy New Year to all Our Furrriends


We think this is wonderful advice. So we're gonna take it.

Mancat Monday

Finally! Back to normal, Mondays are all mine again. I'm not sharing with that lil hussy for .... awhile any way. After all, it's gonna be elebenty hundred days before Sandy Claws comes again! Ha.


So anyway, recently Mom was upstairs calling for us. And she was doing it in meow language! Oh furriends, it was just awful. She had no idea of the things she was REALLY saying - she used some shockingly bad words, too. Not fit for polite kitteh ears, at all. If she only knew...

And her accent !! Just atrocious, really it was.

We ended up scampering to her pretty quickly just to get her to stop.

Leia and I were both awfully embarrassed for her.

Wednesday, December 23, 2015


I applied in good faith 
To pull that dang sleigh 
So what’s a kitten to do 
When employment is through
You curl up by the fire
And look elsewhere for hire 
For humans aren’t the only ones
To go out on Christmas Eve runs
So, who needs dumb Santa Claus
When I can work for Santa Claws
Ok so he delivers mice and not toys
To all the good kitten girls and boys
And there’s no sleigh to pull
More like a litter box that’s full
And we fuel up on cat nip
To fly high on our Noel trip
Actually it’s by far a better gig
Than what Rudolph ever did 
I get to tatter up the tinsel
And break the lights that twinkle
Then scurry up the tree
To mark it with my pee
Oh yeah, this job is the best
Let those reindeer have the rest 
So Meowy Christmas to you
And a Feline Navidad too !

Multi Kitteh Monday


Mom said we'd both take this Monday. I started to get grumpy about it 
(the SECOND week in a row I'm bumped!)
but then she reminded me that Sandy Claws likes people who share stuff....


and are nice to each other...


and what with it being so close to Chrissymouse and all...
I decided to welcome Leia to my blog day.

Nicely.

See how nicely I'm sharing, Sandy Claws??

Finally Friday

Woo!! Mom is so excited it's Finally Friday, you have no idea.

Now - on to our Very Special Presentation for today, hosted by ME!


Yeah, that's right, *I* am taking over the unveiling of our brand new original artwork by Quint from Colehaus Cats. Just arrived today, and we luff it.


It's called "Touch of Frost" and it's our second Quint original.

Happy Friday, everyone!


** don't think I didn't notice that SOME KITTEH slipped
by me Monday 
while I was resting and stole my spot.

Leia on Monday


Ha! 

I, Leia, am TAKING OVER today. I'm pushing that beastly Toby out of Mancat Monday, 
same way he pushes ME out of my couch spot, more and more.

Um... um.... I don't have much to meow about though... 

I yakked on the carpet last night. That's something.

Plus I look really beautiful in my bed. Mom said so.

Happy Monday, y'all.

PS: We're real close to Chrissymouse now, everybody
needs to be good so Sandy Claws will visit us.
He's very forgiving of us kittehs but best not to make it TOO hard for him...

There Are None So Blind...

Mom says this is a saying hoomins have among themselves, but we think SHE needs to see more clearly! Something just awful almost happened yesterday....

For work she had to visit another office, kittens, and there were DOGS there. Yes, DOGS. We're told one was a reasonable sized collie but THIS was also there:


And he, Luke, did THIS:


A LOT. 

She thought he was being "sweet" but we know the truth -
she was being taste tested. Look at that cow sized tongue!

Terrifying, truly terrifying.
How could she not see that he wanted to EAT her?!
Luckily she got out of there whole, but it was a close thing, we're sure of it.

Hoomins. The blindest of all creatures, indeed.

Goodbye Sweet Moosey

Our hearts are very heavy right now. We just learned that Moosey, he of the most adorable, sweetest face, has passed to the Bridge. Please visit his family if you haven't already done so.

It's times like these that we wish we had better words to help ease the pain of our furriends and their families. We can only say that although we have never met in the fur, you - all of our furriends in the Cat Blogosphere - are truly loved and cared about. We smile when good fortune or amazing toys come your way, we are anxious waiting through the news of health updates, and we truly grieve when our furriends have to leave this earth.

Mancat Monday


Mom says I can do regal disdain like nobody's business.

I haz no idea what she's talking about.

Happy Monday.

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Oops....


Sighs. I'm kind of in the doghouse today, can you believe it? 
And I'm a KITTEH.
This has to be all kinds of wrong, seriously.

Just because I demanded noms at 2 am ish, what's wrong with that?
I do it every morning. Ok, so maybe this is the second - or third -
morning I've woken Mom up AGAIN two hours later for more food.

When she's very deeply asleep. I've noticed she gets very cranky the second time.

And maybe today I also laid on her head.
But only because she wouldn't get up and do what I wanted the second time.

What of Leia, you ask?

Do girls EVER get in trouble for anything???

Mancat Monday

Good morning, furriends!

Sometimes we think Mom lives just to bring stuff into this house. You have no idea. And it's so tiring, because of course we have to inspect everything, supervise its placement and/or assembly, it can be very stressful.

But this one we actually like:


Mom got it from this thing called an "estate sale". She put our furry blankie over it in the hopes that we would both use it and not destroy it (to be fair it does have wear and tear already. We think it's kind of old).


It passed the Paws of Approval test!

Enjoy your week. We're a bit sad that Mom has to go back to work today.

Happy Caturday!


Looky! I have a new bed. Mom bought it for me yesterday; 
she says it's an orthopedic bed and has memory foam in it too.
 TECHNICALLY it's a bed for woofies, 
but on account of me being a big guy, 
she had to look elsewhere.

This here is our upstairs second bedroom window area, the place that gets
the most sun - especially impawtant for those cold winter days.
Leia gets the small woofie bed you see to the left (it used to belong to cousin Max)
but I lounged on the floor. I tried the bed a couple of times but most of me just 
didn't fit in it.

Yeaaaa me!


Mom. Mom. Mommy! We haz to talk.

Toby was such a BEAST to me the other night! 
Why did he get a present?!

Mom: I know it doesn't seem fair, Tabby Girl, but Toby's old, creaky bones
need extra help. YOU have that nice plushie bed, he needs something too.
And this wasn't really a present, you know. 

Leia: Hmpf. This may require the back of disrespect. I shall have to consider.

In the meantime...

Happy Caturday, furriends!

Tabby Girl Tuesday


Ohhhh last night was exciting! Too exciting, really.

Toby was an absolute BEAST to me, but Mommy SAVED me.

At the cost of her foot, that's true, but it was a small price to pay to keep my furs whole.

PS: Toby - this raspberry is for YOU!


And now a meow from the beast himself....


Dear Mommy,

I'm very sorry I attacked your foot last night.  I didn't mean to but it got in the way of attacking Leia. 

Which I know you didn't like either, but ... but... I HAD TO. There were awful ebil introoder kittehs in our courtyard - he even went up on the steps! Right outside the door! The CHEEK!

So I admit I got over excited and went after Leia. I mean, that was safer than going after YOU.

Except that I did bite and scratch you. 
And you didn't take kindly to that and said some rather rude things to me about it. 

- Sincerely, your VERY VERY loving furry orange son, Tobers


Mom's note:

I *thought* I had cat proofed the courtyard against wanderers. Clearly I didn't.

But, by the end of this weekend, it will be. By the grace of Lowe's and my own creativity.

Mancat Monday

Mom says it's Thanksgiving week - we hope all our furriends have a great holiday, 
and especially lots of turkey!


Oh, and our stern talking to got us our fried chick-hen. 
So we've stopped our plotting for revenge. THIS time.

Sometimes when I come to Mom for a head scritching, she will put out both hands. 
Then I have to decide which direction to lean into. One hand is a much easier choice, don't you think?

ThankLESS Thursday


Mom, we have to talk.

Do you realize it's been a whole WEEK since we last had fried chick-hen??

What's up with that?


Exactly! I too am all fainty with the chick-hen hunger, Mom.

If we don't get some SOON, steps will be... taken....


You've been warned.

Girlz Only!

Mom got a new toy today. Well, sometimes we do have to allow our hoomins to do that, otherwise they can get cranky.


It's from Triple T Studios (The Tiniest Tiger), The Cat Walk Cross Body Phone Bag. She has a few other items from there too. This bag is one of a set of three items. It has a different design on front and back.


Mom was impressed at how nicely it was created. The zipper teeth are even real metal!
She doesn't see this much anymore (possibly because she's rather cheap).

And the inside has a cute little The Tiniest Tiger name tag.


She says if anyone wants to get this - or any of their items - sign up for the newsletter and wait for the discount code. She gets at least one code a week and is pretty allergic to buying stuff full price (hey, I TOLD you she was cheap!).

*** We were not compensated in any way for this post. (unfortunately). Mom just wanted to share her newest toy.

Caturday Is Here!

What, now? But I'm trying to NAP! 

Oh, all right. Just a few.





Ok, that's all - I'm off the clock now.

ZZZZZZZ.....



Happy weekend, furriends. Stay toasty

Tabby Girl Thursday


As you can see, I'm meditating. I do that a lot, I have great patience.
I can sit here, or anywhere really, for minutes and minutes.

It always impresses Mom.

Toby**, on the other paw, can't seem to meditate for longer than oh... maybe 5 minutes. 
You know, for a kitteh, he really doesn't have much patience. AT ALL.

Ok, now it's time for my nap.

For which I am very thankful. I LOVE my naps!






** the boy does get style points for his napping though.

Fare Thee Well, Madison

Our furriend Madison from the Cory Cat blog has passed to the Bridge. Please go visit his family.

Multi Kitteh Monday


Normally I wouldn't share Mancat Monday with Leia but this week is a bit different.

As every kitteh knows, we wear many hats when it comes to our hoomins - sometimes we soothe them, stir them up, supervise deliveries and assembling things. We take care of them when they are sick - and what a pain that is! - and even do things just to amuse them. They really are very simple creatures.

But.

Caturday was a .... different kind of day. Mom has been fighting with the company that brings our Internet service into the house. We won't name it but it starts with a T (think clocks.....). It was the second disruption of our peaceful household this week, but they weren't able/were too lazy to fix the problem. The tech was actually very rude, lazy and incompetent, and basically told her she had to "suck it up" when it came to not getting the proper speed. Whatever the problem is, it's on THEIR end, not ours. He spent 25 minutes here, most of that on the phone to someone else.

She got so mad, she ordered him to get out. WE had sense enough to stay out of the way upstairs. Even when we came down, we were just a bit careful. Let's just say the energy was... um... crackling for awhile.

Some days you really do just need to leave the hoomins be. This is our Multi Kitteh Monday Public Service Meow for the week.

***yes, it was rude to order him out and shut the door in his face while he was still talking but he deserved it. I'm having a very hard time being sorry about it.

SPOOKY Finally Friday


Are you a-skeered? 
Are you fainting with fear?

No? Well, we kittehs are made of sterner stuff, 
but I bet your hoomins are quaking at my ghost kitteh routine! 

I'm practicing tricks for next Meowloween.



Happy Finally Friday to all!

Mancat Monday


So, it was a long weekend, furriends. We actually had some sticky little people show up on Halloween - all because Mom forgot our outside light was on a sensor and turned on at dusk. And it happened while our dinner was being prepared too. Threw me right off my game for maybe an hour.

And today, oh today - Mom was cleaning and found one of our....secret... toys - a water jug ring. Great for chewing and batting around. We're not actually allowed to have those, but SOME KITTEH forgot to hide it again when she/he was done, and it got found. And trashed.

Drat. Those are hard to come by, don't you know?



PS: Pee on the carpet JUST ONCE and you've got a rep
for all nine lives. How fair is that ?

Not Really Wordless Wednesday


So, Mom found this picture today at work looking for something else. 
She is quite fond of turtles, and thought this was almost kitten cute. 

We graciously consented to allow her to post this on OUR blog.
We don't really think it's all that cute... honestly,
we're wondering how tasty it would be... and how far a mighty paw whap could send it.
