The Case of the Airplane Ears

Dear furriends,

Last night mom saw my ear innards were looking a little... well... grungy. I tried to tell her I was cool with it and to leave them alone, ok? 

Yeah. You already know how that story turned out.

After, I had the WORST case of airplane ears! So I got on the bed to recover, after a good head shake. Mom asked if I wanted to snuggle. I was torn.... I mean, she did this to me, but she's also the one who makes me feel better. So after I changed my mind a couple of times, we did settle down for some quality time.

Still. All is NOT forgiven!

Meowwy Tuesday

Mom wanted to post something funny she saw on an online t-shirt, and we wanted to sleep, so we told her to go for it.

 In my defense, the moon was full 
and I was left unsupervised.

PS: kittehs, never let your peeps be unsupervised!

Dear Miss Madi

We imagine by now the sad news is flying throughout 

Our hearts are broken. We're grateful she was spared the worst of her health issues,
but we were not ready for her to go. Of course, we never would be.

To her family - thank you so much for sharing her adventures with us.
She was an amazing diva, wasn't she?

We send you our deepest sympathies and softest pawhugs.

- Toby, Leia, and Cathy

Sunday - Chewy Review

Yep, it's that time again!

First, we are very grateful to be part of the Chewy Influencer program, so we always feel
bad when we have to report that a product isn't exactly a bucket of primo nip.


We recently got the Tiny Tiger Canned Cat Food.

Chicken, and Turkey n Giblets flavors.

Neither were a smashing success. 

We didn't really tell Mom WHY it wasn't so great, but let's just say we were
happy to get back to our regularly scheduled Fancy Feast.

But at least they are grain free. So there's that.

So far we've also reviewed the Science Diet and Taste of the Wild foods.
We were very enthusiastic about the S.D. 

And the Wild pate was pretty good too, after the chunks got smooshed down.

But this... yeah, nope.

We hope all of our furriends are having a safe, and dry, weekend.

** Chewy sends us products to review for them, at no charge, for our honest opinion. 
We really don't think anyone could ever accuse us of NOT being honest!

We here at Whiskeratti try very hard not to let the real world intrude on our blog,
as do most of our fellow cat and dog bloggers. We regard the CB as a haven.

But, the situation with Florence and her destruction is breaking our hearts.

Until about 1.5 years ago, we lived in Fayetteville, NC, which is currently taking a huge beating. Massive flooding, winds, everything is just awful there. We are very grateful to no longer be living there, but we did during that October two years ago when Matthew came through, and we remember.

If you are following the stories, you will be hearing that name mentioned a lot, for comparison. The flooding was intense, for much the same reason as now - we'd already had too much rain by the time he came through.

However, what we really want to focus on are the amazing stories of people coming together, to help each other, and strangers, and most especially animals, get to safety. So many of them! 

The Cajun Navy just saved over 70 animals from a pet shelter second floor with the roof caving in, and flooding, at the last minute; how can anything be more heartwarming? 

People donated money to help a woman with 7 rescue dogs who was unable to evacuate and wouldn't leave them behind. They are all safe now. 

Over 100 people came together to save the town of Lumberton, 20 miles from Fayetteville, from another horrific flooding, as it did in Matthew. They put out a FB call for volunteers to help with sandbags to shore up a low point. And they came.

We live in a time with too much contention, but times such as these not only try our souls, they also bring us together, as one. Bless them all, for doing what they could. No one will see their names in the paper, their pictures won't be shown, they will individually be unknown but what they did as a group will be to the benefit of many. Their reward will be the results of their labors. 

And we would like to end with this message for the powers that be:

It's Almost Here...

In the last week or so, Mom has noticed that I've been getting up on the couch, with the warm blankie Auntie Mary gave us for Chrissymouse last year. Normally I'm on the back of the couch, if I get up there.

Our temps are just barely below the summer temps right now, but you can see it and feel it anyway. Shadows are falling differently; sunset sets earlier; the sky is a deeper blue.

Fall officially starts on Sept. 23. But we kittehs do not need a calendar to know, do we?

So what is the bestest thing for any feline to do ??

Our purrayers and thoughts are with our furriends, and everyone, 
in the path of the big storm out there. Especially Miss Madi.

Stop! Thief!

STOP that woman with the clippers!!

Furriends, it was awful.... my claws were purrfection. 

Long, curved, wicked sharp, ready to decimate any introoders unwise enough to breach our perimeters. I'd been growing them most carefully. 
Don't let my tininess fool you - I am VERY dangerous!

And then - snip snip snip! She stole them away, littering the comforter with the instruments of my Bast-given superiority.

Sighs. Now I have to start all over. Again.
