A New Purrrspective

I'm just keeping a watch out for Caturday!

(Mom says it's always Caturday for us.)

Our Mom's Chrissymouse Presents (to herself. Cuz Why Not?)

Today we'd like to show you what our Mom got recently. She's quite proud of both of them!
We helped by being the Lovely Assistants, modeling them.

First up:

This bit of artwork was created by the very talented and handsome Quint of Colehaus Cats. It's a limited edition paw painting based on Starry Night. It came with a tiny easel. If your 'rent is looking for an original creation, we highly recommend visiting his shop.

And now:

Ok, this wasn't cat-created, but it was hand made by the husband of Max the Psychokitty's mom. (And just for the record, Toby objects to being the "Lovely" Assistant. He insists on being known as the Completely Handsome & Noble Mancat Putting Up with More of Mom's Silliness Graciously.)

He also has other stuff in his Etsy shop. Totally worth a look.

**Mom's photography doesn't do justice to either of these.

Meowwy Chrissymouse!

To all our furriends and their families,
we wish you a wonderful holiday and New Year!

Now 'scuse us, we're going back to bed.

A Tisket, a Tasket...

a kitteh in a basket!

Mom saw this at work and 
knew it would be just purrfect for me,
so she brought it home.

I made it mine very quickly. It's an excellent fit, don't you think? 
There is padding in it, too, so it's quite comfy.

Only two days to Chrissymouse!

Open Letter

Dear Mr Heating Fix It Guy,

Thank you for fixing our thermostat. Now it runs the proper amount of time, not too much and not too little. And now all our thermometers agree with each other, instead of a ten degree difference. Our Mom is very happy that our electric bills will be under control now.

More green papers for us is good, since that means more good stuff for all of us here. We even forgive you for driving us UTB.

However, we do have a MOST SERIOUS issue with you: you brought those vile, nasty, why-do-they-even-exist??!-fleas into our formerly flea free home.

Now we itch and must endure that cold wet stuff on our necks. Mom is doing a lot of grumbling over this too, so not only do we itch and have to endure that cold wet stuff on our necks, we have to put up with her crankiness.

And also now begins a 21 day cycle of Noisy Beast visits. Every.single.day that thing will come out.

These are most difficult to forgive.

Not a Mancat Monday

Nope, it's me, Leia!

Mom is always amazed at how small I can make myself when I want to.

She gets a little gushy over it. It can get embarrassing.

Friday, December 13, 2013

Today! It's Today!!!!

Hear ye, hear ye: be it known far and wide, today is THE day for:

Thorin Part II!!!!

Some unenlightened persons may know it as The Desolation of Smaug, but really, it's Thorin Part II.

Click here for fandango.com to find your showings. :) 

Yes, our Mom is just a wee bit excited over this.
She has taken the day off to see it, which will be
only slightly delayed by the unexpected car repair that
has to happen this morning first. Why that couldn't take place during
one of our scheduled Stabby Place visits, we have no idea.

And for those who, inexplicably (to Mom), don't care about Thorin,
we offer this cat butt:

This is what our Mom thinks is funny. See what we live with ?

Going, Going, Gone

Or, what I did this weekend:

Thursday, December 5, 2013

The Verdict Is In!

After careful, prolonged testing and multiple kitteh-to-kitteh conferences, we have declared the new couch a KEEPER!

Unfortunately for Mom, it's rarely available for interspecies use at the same time. But she does have an office chair to sit in. It's not like we make her sit on the floor.

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

A Face Grumpy Cat Would Love

Ok, this is what I look like when Mom 
lets the Noisy Beast out of its cage to be, well, NOISY!

I do NOT approve.

Sunday, December 1, 2013

Sunday Easy

Well, here we are getting used to the new couch.

We're not completely sold on it yet but... not too far from it.

Friday, November 29, 2013

So the Mom Went Shopping...

and let's stop right there. Do you ever dread, or feel suspicious about, their shopping trips? You just never know what they are going to drag home, do you?

And after today, we will carefully inspect everything she tries to get in the door. Because we might just want to put down a firm paw on it.

She bought a new sofa. A NEW SOFA!!! Do you, dear furriends, know what this means?

• Strangers in the house
• Rearranging of everything in the living room!!!
• A complete disruption of all that we have been comfortable with for years now
• WHY?

Ok, well, we might be willing to consider this. It does add extra seating for us all, and more impawtantly, will keep Mom from sometimes making us move from the bed during the day for her own naps, etc.

And she swears she did all she could to make this as feline friendly as possible.

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

We wish all our furriends and their families a wonderful holiday weekend.

To our furriends who have lost loved ones, especially recently, we know this will be a difficult weekend. You have our warmest good wishes. Jasper's family - we know you aren't American so this isn't your holiday, but still, we are thinking of you today as well.

PS: Mom wants to know if anyone's hoomins are brave enough to venture out shopping tomorrow? Or tonight?

Goodbye, dear Russell

We just read that Russell, another wonderful orange, has left for the Bridge.

None of them are fair, but this one, really really really isn't fair.

Please go visit his family if you can.

Sun Vs Bug

Ok, so the two of us are just relaxing, enjoying our Easy Sunday sun bath.

(yeah, we know only Leia is pictured here, but trust us, we WERE both right

And then Mom walks in and sees this really big bug on the floor. She looks at
us - we look back at her - and she wants to know why we aren't doing anything
about this great big bug on the floor.

Well, that's not entirely fair. We WERE watching the bug. Just not, y'know,
doing anything about it.

So she ends up dealing with it. Well, duh.

Bug or Sun Puddle (and on a cold day too!)?

We aren't stupid!

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

Well That Was Rude Wednesday

In the wee hours, Mom and I were headed towards the bed. In the dark. I knew she was there but I guess she didn't see ME. Hoomins have no senses, I swear.

So we collided. People, she actually stepped on my toes! She apologized so I was gracious about accepting. And then:

"I'm glad it was you and not Leia. You're the feline equivalent of the Washington Memorial."

???<>! Mom! (I don't really know what the Washington Memorial is, but I'm thinking it must be big).

This is what I have to live with. No respect.

PS: My official lab report came back. Nothing to worry over.

Monday, November 18, 2013

Purrayers Needed for Russell

Our furriend Russell, another orange, is having medical problems.

Please go visit his family and offer support, if you can.

A Word about Litter Box Liners

The feline community here is taking the day off, so it's my turn!

And I want to talk about... litter box liners. It's unbelievable what I've been going through lately just to find durable liners. Unscented. Not even going to talk about price, either. Until recently we used Jonny Cat liners. Those critters were very tough.

Then they started carrying only the scented ones. Anyone who knows cats, knows they hate scented stuff. Also, who wants to do anything to risk putting them off using the boxes? That's got to be one of the Top 5 in Unwanted Cat Issues! I've tried two others since, neither were very good.

FINALLY I found a good substitute today - Boots & Barkley liners. So far I'm very pleased with them. Paws crossed that they don't start with scents.

In other random news.....

I had to verify that I'm not a bot earlier today. What this site used was amazing and unique. Never seen anything like it, so I made a screen shot. And here it is!
 Wishing everyone and their furry families a great pre-Thanksgiving week!

- Cathy, Leia & Toby

I Haz a Suspicion.....

My Mom and I were snorgling today. She was giving me the usual - head and tail scritches,
letting me rub my chin against her face, all the normal stuff.

She also likes to give me big compliments. Which I love and agree with. Yes, I'm beautiful, soft, graceful, intelligent, wonderful, with the most beautiful green eyes, and I especially agree that Toby does NOT deserve me. I love him, but he really is a cad with me.

Then she starts with how I'm the most beautiful, etc, kitteh in all the world. And I realize - she says pretty much the same thing to Tobers! When I point this out to her, she says the same thing can be true for all kittehs in the world at the same time. That we are all the most beautiful, wonderful, etc., ever ever ever.

There is a flaw here somewhere, I'm just not sure where.

The Report

Well, Mom took me to the Stabby Place yesterday afternoon. At least it wasn't on Caturday!

I was not pleased, and I let her know with a few well timed meoWWWs in the car. But not on the way back, I was too tired.

Oh, the indignities I suffered! The lady vet there was ...ok... I guess... who can ever say their vet is NICE? These people poke and prod us, and deserve a good whap for it, I say.

Mom said there was a pretty, white furred ladykitteh in the waiting room. I wouldn't know, I didn't want to meet her. I don't want to talk to my own ladykitteh at home, why would I want to meet a strange one?? (Mom is laughing. I don't know why). Then I came home to recover.

Mom has the rest of the report:

The vet looked at the slides and said she only saw fatty material, so we are pretty sure it's nothing. We're waiting on the official lab report, which will be back in a week. We want to thank all our furriends for their well wishes!

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I Have a ....Lump

Mom says I have to go to the Stabby Place very soon.

She found a soft, movable lump on my chest.

I meowed that it was nothing, but do Moms
ever listen to us? NO!

So tomorrow she is making an appointment
for me, for Caturday if possible.

Isn't that just an awful way to spend
your Caturday?

Caturday Is Here!

Time to party down, feline style!
Plus, our Mom has a three day weekend
so we get lots of attention.

Maybe a bit too much.... hmmm..
anyway, we hope all our furriends
get extra time with their hoomins
this weekend.


PS: I wanted to prove that I, too, could entirely
fit into this box. Not just that little hussy girl, Leia.

Goodbye Jasper

As you can imagine, his family is heartbroken.

Please go visit.

Workin' Hard Wednesday!

Actually, we work hard at this every day.

Happy Birthday Max!

Our woofie cousin Max has turned 17 today!

Totally pawsome. Enjoy your day, dude!

PS: we think your Mom should give you steak.  :)

Here I am, surveying my kingdom 
atop my favorite throne.

It's good to be a Princess!

She's having some problems right now and could use your support.

A Point to Ponder

Happy Halloween!!

This morning our Mom was giving us scritches and pats. It was a nice thing so early in the morning, right before we started our early naps. And then - WAY before we were ready - she says she has to go take a shower so she can go off for the day.

She does this every.single.day. We complain but she just says she's not self-cleaning like we are, and it has to be done.

So we thought - doesn't this seem like a serious design flaw in hoomins? Ok, just one of many, it's true, but this is really annoying. And perplexing.

Maybe Ceiling Cat can fix this.

***** the above confused and irritated kitten tot is NOT one of our household. Merely a dramatic reenactment. Thank you.

The Paw Project

Dear furriends,

Miss Sparkle has a very impawtant post today about The Paw Project.

This is dedicated to eradicating the evil that is declawing felines.

She's designed a really pawsome tote bag, the proceeds of which
will be donated to the Project. Please go by and check out this
message, and if you can, whap your 'rents until they go and buy
this tote too.

Caturday Conundrums

Furriends, it's a lovely Caturday here. A bit chilly outside.

But there is one thing.... WHY do hoomins have the hardest time
resisting my furry tummy? She keeps rubbing her face in my warm, orange
floof, disturbing my rest. Does this look like a tummy to take liberties with to you ?

I don't understand it. If not for this... intrusion.... I'd be happily
napping away.

Ah well. I suppose she means well.

Enjoy your weekend!

Monday, Monday

We had so much fun this weekend with the interview! 

Thank you so much to all our furriends 
- including the newest - who stopped by.

Monday, this one is for YOU!

Friday, October 18, 2013

Here It Is! Read all About It.

This is our big surprise - we were interviewed on Mousebreath!

We're very excited and proud to have been chosen for this honor.

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

We Haz a Surprise!

But we aren't meowing a word. Nope, not a lil peep from either of us.

Not even a hint, because our furriends are smart and will figure it out.

We can tell y'all that it will be unveiled to the world - or at least 
to the CB - on Friday.

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Monday, October 7, 2013

Happy News!

Finally, we have some wonderful news to help spread through the CB.

Erinn Zuzu Niblet of the Colehaus Cats has given birth to four amazing, lil kitten Niblets.

(One of which is an orange. We're quite partial to oranges here!)

Monday's Coming

and we just can't face it.

My Determination

Here I am, demonstrating one of kitteh-kind's most Special Rules:

1. No matter how good the sleep spot, it's ALWAYS better with Mom's (or Dad's) clothes on it.

Awhile back, Mom put out these clothes for me to use, on a permanent basis. And that was really nice, I always sleep there.

But yesterday, she added these awesome jeans to the mix. Only now she says
it was an accident, she just tossed them there for a moment, but since I have clearly
appropriated them, it seems only just to let me keep them.

I'm determined on this matter. This is my determined face. Do you see it?

The Bridge

We have lost another member of the Cat Blogosphere, Gracie from Mass Destruction.
Please go by and visit her family.

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

It's Official. Kittehs Rule the World

Really, they should just crown us the Best of Everything of All Time and be done with it.

Miss Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat, has just pawed on to become the Friskies spokescat.
How awesome is that ? But we have to wonder; what kind of endorsements does
the amazing Maru have? Hmm...

Monday, September 16, 2013

I Understand

Yes, Mom, I know your nose is cold.

I know my orange furs are warm.

But don't you think you've spent
enough time warming YOUR nose
in MY furs for one day??

I need my sleep, y'know.

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Sunday Easy

Here we are, taking our Easy.

Enjoy your Sunday, furriends.

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

My New Apartment!

Looky! My very own new apartment, conveniently located in our house. Right near the food bowls and the pursonal facilities. Plus, rent and utilities are FREE. Who can ask more than that ?

As you can see, it's quite spacious. The front and back entries are nicely cut for easy access, with high sides to allow for proper lounging. Mom let me move in right away.

And the floor is made up of something Mom calls Publix shopping bags. Her sister mailed them to her as packing materials for something else, but they make a wonderful addition to my apt. And they smell really good too.

I'm very pleased. Thanks Mom!

Friday, September 6, 2013

Moms Are Sneaky

Sighs. Here I am, hanging out on the floor with Leia. Mom joins us.

We thought that was nice - some family together time, right?

As IF.

She brought the flashy beast with her. And took THIS!

How embarrasing.

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

The Reason Why

This is why our Mom didn't dry her hair with that noisy thing this morning in our bedroom. She went out into the living room to do it.

Furriends, WHY do our 'rents have so many very noisy things? Can't they do anything quietly?
