Mancat Monday - Action Shots!

Mom broke out the last of the toys from the Kit 'n Nip box we got a few weeks ago. 
I woke up long enough to get my turn.

That box had some seriously pawsome toys in it!
Here I am wrestling this one into submission, teaching it who is who in this house.

Hi - yahhh!!!! Take THAT!

Oh yeah, Leia liked it too.

This one is for YOU, Brody!

Happy week, furriends.

Easy Like Sunday

What, Mom? Doesn't every one sit on the top of their chair??
Oh, they don't? Too bad. The view is better up here.

Ok, fine, we can go hang out on the table now.
You may admire me from close up.

I did NOT authorize this close up tummy shot, lady.
That is a private area.
Expect to hear from my cattorney, Katie Isabella, about damages!

WHAT is all that noise going on??? Have you both forgotten this is EASY Sunday?
So that means be quiet, people.

Fluff this. I'm going back to sleep now.

It's Wednesday

You know.. 

On reflection, biting the momma
 is maybe not the BEST idea. 


Gator Update:
Unfortunately, he turned out 
to be 5 ft, 7 inches long. He sure didn't
look that big at a distance. 

So no more gator.

Sunday - MOM!

I just want to hang out with everyone, and the dining table is a great way to do that!
Mom sits in the chair and snuggles with us both. I'm all for it. I roll around and show off my tummy, she gives good tummy rubs.

Why is Toby such a brat about it??

I remember the days when that girl didn't get on the table. It was just me. Or just me and mom.
Sighs. Those were glory days, right?

*I* remember the day I bought this dining set and brought it home, back in NC.
I had this crazy notion I could actually eat at this table. By myself. No cats.
I think I've eaten maybe three meals on this table in about a year and a half.

I think I've just been deeply insulted and slandered. I'm leaving.

Dear furriends, do you see how I'm suffering!!!

Finally Friday - Life in Florida

We live in Tallahassee, which is essentially a city plunked down in a forest. 
There is a large lake just down the street from where I work and live.

Today, a lady called my office and said there was a gator on our property. So of course I had to go look for myself. And who looks at stuff these days WITHOUT their cell phone camera??

This guy is between 3 - 4 feet, and has taken up residence in our holding pond, up by the road.
He was enjoying a bit of sun here.

I couldn't get closer for a better picture, but he was kind of cute.
Obviously, we're grading on a curve here.

For now - he won't be so cute when he's a solid 8-footer.

Florida Game & Fish will be sending a biologist to evalute him. 

Under 4 feet, relocation. 

Over 4 feet.. well...

In case you are wondering, this is not unusual at all for pretty much any part of Florida.
Especially in drought conditions, they come up all over, including front porches, swimming pools, etc.

Mancat Monday: Reunited...

and it feels so good!!

Here I am with my wonderful HLR (hoomin litterbox room) rug.
It's relatively new - and soooo luxurious.

But it went missing. Because it got wet. 
Because I may or may not have barfed all over it. 
My entire breakfast (allegedly). 

And mom had to wash it, so it was wet for days while it dried.

But now it's BACK!!! 

And this time, rug, I'm not letting go.

Thursday, April 5, 2018

Mom, mom, mom....

Sighs. Once again, you have cut us to the quick. How could you have so little faith in us?? 
Honestly, woman.

Dear furriends, you see here that I'm watching one of the outside kittehs
we feed enjoying his/her evening snack. Calmly. Quietly. 

Not hitting the glass with outrage. Not screaming, hissing, spitting.
NOT inflicting my redirected aggression onto my tiny sisfur, Leia.

And here you see it's not just me, it's her too.

Mom, this is what we mature, sophisticated individuals - also known as "cats" -
 like to refer to as a growth experience.

So there. Neener neener neener.

Tiny Tabby Tuesday

This weekend, Mom was doing laundry. As you can see, 
I know exactly what to do with fresh from the dryer stuff! 

For some reason, she started laughing when she saw me here,
and rushed to get the camera.


PS: guess who was JEALOUS when he saw me get here first?
Especially since it got all put away right after these pics were taken.

Mancat Monday - A Report

Now, I'm grooming, very impawant, leave me be!

.... mommy, I luff you, SNUGGLE with me!

Mancat Monday - Everyone Is Getting One!

So many of our furriends are also getting the Art of Paws heated cat bed, 
it's like Chrissymouse all over again!

As you can see, it comes in a very nice box. Too flat to be of much use to us kittehs,
but our hoomins like nicely packaged things.

So - Heated. Cat. Bed.

That says it all, doesn't it? But if you need more..

bite proof cord, removable/washable fleece cover. 10 watts.
Warm enough but not so warm that anyone is in danger of getting burned or over-hot.

I feel quite like an emperor here... Mom, you may kiss the paw now.
You're welcome.

(Toby may have seen one too many Youtube clips of the HBO show Rome.)

We got one for free to review. We did really like it, though Leia has yet to discover it.

Toby Thursday

  • Happy Thursday! 

  • I was looking for Leia to do today's post but I don't see her anywhere. She's been kind of miffed since my last post, so she's been sulking. Or possibly plotting revenge... She's a girl, you never know. 
Anyway, mom decided to give me a manicure last night. I informed her very clearly I was not pleased. I even hissed and growled at her! Such fierceness I displayed. 

And she... she... Told me to quit it. Not scared at all. MOUSES!! OK, I've never actually followed through with that threat but still. She could have pretended to be scared, couldn't she???

Mancat Monday - the Truth Is O U T !

And you know what? I'm GLAD!
Leia, you run the house, and do all the work.

While I do THIS :

Ha ha meow!

Finally Friday

Yesterday was Women's Day. Can you believe Mom forgot to post about me?? So I insisted we do it today. 

Yes, as some of you have suspected, I DO rule this household. I am the fierce huntress of things that get in... I am the discipline-r
 of badly behaved Boogie Mats and other assorted toys... And I bring sweetness and light, with just a tiny bit of spice, to our home.

Go, me. 

**** Here I am hunting a bug! See? Always on the job.

Mancat Monday - 2 vs 2

It's Monday  - time for ME!

So, 2 vs. 2.

2 dislikes I have:

1). Tin foil! Horrible thing, that noise it makes.
Why hoomins would ever use such a thing is beyond me. 

2). Mom's Ace bandage. Last summer she tore her calf muscle, and ever since she uses this to wrap up her leg when she exercises. (She wants you to know that this is amazingly useful, if you ever have need of one, it is truly extremely helpful). But when she puts it on or takes it off, it's very upsetting to me. I refuse to hang around for this. It's just seriously freaky to me.

Now for the 2 loves I have:

1). My nip hamster, bought many years ago. We got it from Cat Faeries online shop. We're soul mates, that hamster and I. I like other toys just fine, but hamster and I are FOREVER.

2). My mom's hair. When I was a tiny, tiny tot I would sleep in her hair, curled up by her neck. Now I'm way too big for that but my head fits there just fine. We sit at the dining room table for snorgle time, and I demand mom take her hair out of the ponytail (I paw at her head. Every time.) so I can get my hair fix. This makes me very, very happy. Even more so than my hamster-time.

So there you are, some facts about ME, Toby.

Happy week, furriends.

All Hail the Great Friday!

Mom does luff her Fridays.

I look so cute and sweet here, but what you don't see is that I'm disciplining our Boogie Mat. Toby lets it get away with such awful behavior, but I'm very firm about these things. 

Has anyone else seen the movie "The Great and Powerful Oz"? We helped mom watch it recently. The monkey, and especially China Girl, were our favs. 

This is us last night, patiently waiting for Mom to come to bed. I swear, sometimes she's really slow about doing what we want her to.

Sorta Wordless Wednesday

Hmm... yep, let's go with this one, Mom, it shows off my best side.

Mom has a story:

On the way home through my neighborhood on Tuesday night, 
I saw something I'd never seen before: a cat caught a squirrel! 
Didn't get to keep him, but he definitely caught that tree rat.

I saw the cat, a beautiful white and gray tabby (and kind of tubby, too) stalking something.
When he pounced, I realized there was a squirrel by the tree, apparently ignoring this not
particularly stealthy cat just feet away. The cat grabbed his sides with both paws,
but that cheeky fellow just scampered up the tree. He probably suffered a few scratches,
but I don't believe there was any real harm done.

Happy Caturday

So this is how we have decided to spend our Caturday. 
We had so much fun the other day, we're still hungover and tired! 

All great pawrties must be paid for.

We've Arrived!

Mom is so excited - we just got asked to do a review for KitNipBox, a monthly cat subscription box! Our first ever. The box was delivered today. All nicely packed inside.

Now on to the action shots!

We both dove right in, it all smelled so good. I, Toby, went straight for that thingie I'm holding onto for dear life. Mom says I just about licked it into non-existence. But, we all know hoomins just don't appreciate a fine nip experience.

Leia chose the yellow guy. After we calmed down a bit,
Mom gave us a taste of the dried whitefish treat. Pretty darn good!
Although, we both had some trouble figuring out what to do with it.
Fair warning, it's got a strong smell to it.

So this is the rest of the box, in addition to the two toys we had first. 
All the toys are transportation-themed. And there is a card that says they donate a portion of each box to kittehs in need. Who can't luff that?

We give it all two paws up!

Now for the obligatory stuff:

The box was free in exchange for our honest review.
We'd have told y'all if we thought this was a stinker, but really we all enjoyed it very much.

Here is the link for the company's site; KitNipBox.
We even have our very own coupon code too: Whiskeratti,
good for 15% off a new subscriber's first month.


Wowwie, have I ever got a nip hangover! Leia, you can take this for awhile.
