Caturday Cattitude Cats

Do you mind not interrupting my bath? Really!

It’s all about the Cattitude.

Did you hear me? I’m starving!


Friday’s Fab Felines

I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror today in all my glory. Dang, I’m fabulous!

I’m so Fabulous! (Okay, maybe Twilight is too)- but I want you to meet some other Fab felines!

This one made my human lose it. She was already close to losing it anyway.

But then she saw this one, and OH MY FLEAS!

Hey- maybe if I convince Twilight I’m a Bobcat, she’ll stop pouncing on me when I’m trying to sleep!

I’m letting the Can Opener sleep in today.

But I won’t let her get used to it.

The reason I’m letting her sleep in, is because yesterday her sister had a medical crisis and went to the hospital, and I hardly saw her at all until later in the day. She was busy comforting and taking care of her sister from the time she woke up- (it had started the night before)- until late last night.

I’m letting her sleep in to keep her here for a while. Then when I’ve had my snuggles, grooming, playtime, breakfast and treats, I may wake her up and let her do her thing.

Bottom line is, the Can Opener owes me extra cuddles and treats and a boatload of whipped cream. I might demand a can of tuna too. That was not cool. Both Sushi and I were not happy. We don’t mind her helping her sister, but we had to be stuck with the dry cereal in our dish for hours until things got stabilized, and then when she came home she was busy cleaning.

Really, human?

I’m wiped out from watching her run around!

She was also very upset, because her sister had been severely dehydrated and was in distress, and the emt’s said she needed to go to the hospital. Once they took her to the ER- (no one was allowed to stay with her)- they just left her in the lobby and she was cold, crying, in pain and scared. There were only two other people in the E.R., but somehow she had to wait from 11:00 -3 pm before she was even taken to a room. That’s a long time for a person in crisis to have to sit alone waiting for someone to even come and take them to a room to be evaluated.

But 4 hours later she was taken to a room and evaluated, and today is doing better. Tons of fluids, and stabilized, she’s back home and starting to look more like herself.

It’ll be a week or more before her sister is really okay- but Sushi and I won’t be letting the Can Opener out of our sight again for a while.

And if she thinks we’re going to let her sleep in again in the morning, she has another think coming.

Not this time, human.
Get up and feed us!

How to Train your human.

There are certain rules that any self-respecting cat should insist on.

Twilight’s Illustrated guide to the top 10 Cat Rules….

When a cat enters a new home, its critical to lay down a few ground rules that the humans are expected to follow. Here are a few of the most important ones.

Rule 1.) Never let them put you on a diet!
Rule 2.) Watch what they do online so they can’t sneak a dog in the house.

Rule 3.) Never let them leave you with Grandmayou’ll have PTSD for the rest of your life.

Rule 4.) Don’t try too hard to please them. It upsets them and then you don’t get treats.

Rule 5.) Don’t let them cramp your style!
Rule 6.) Don’t let them hog all the coffee!

Rule 7.) Deny Everything.
Rule 8.) If there isn’t a back-up Can Opener in the house, make sure they get another one FAST.

Rule 9.) Try to liven things up. Humans can be SO boring.
Rule 10.) Life is short. Leave your mark!

Twilight’s Cat Careers

Twilight – the botanist. These plants aren’t going to study themselves, you know!
Serafina – the yawn instructor.

It’s very important to yawn correctly. Nobody wants to stretch out your jaw muscles. That makes it really hard to catch those delicious birds and mice.

Abby- the Break Enforcer.

When someone’s working from home, they need constant reminders to stop and take a break to eat, stand, or PET THE CAT.

Sushi the Lawn hydration inspector.

On hot days when people are having garage sales, it’s important to make sure they didn’t forget to water the lawn first.

Serafina the model.

Yes, even cats aspire to be models. But she’s doing double duty here. She’s not just posing for a portrait, she’s also faithfully holding that fuzzy blanket in place. It won’t go anywhere with her around!

How are you? No, I mean Really?

The Can Opener is wondering. I was supposed to ask, so I did. Now back to my nap!

In dark days, everyone needs some peace and comfort.

A person doesn’t have to be constantly watching the news to know that there are some weird and STUPID things going on in this country. And whether anyone says it or not, everyone knows why. My human says in times like this, people need each other. Even if there are plenty of people trying to divide them. Some people don’t need anyone trying to divide them – those people thrive on causing trouble for others and making others miserable.

But the majority of us want peace. We don’t like division, hate and lies. Take heed to your hearts. Don’t buy the poison that is being spewed out everywhere. Most people just want to live in peace and enjoy their lives and make a better life for themselves and their families.

Don’t let the ones who are filled with hate, also fill your heart. Take heed to your hearts- out of your hearts you speak, and think and act. What is in your heart?

My Can Opener prays that everyone reading this who desires to live their lives in peace, freedom and prosperity will be kept and preserved from all the evil that is being pushed all around us. The truth is that Jesus Christ gave His life to bring us all to the Father. His prayer for those who love Him when He knew He was about to be crucified, was that;

“…Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given Me, that they may be one, even as we are One.”

John 17: 11

Every child of God regardless of race, ethnicity or geographical location belongs to Him, is part of the body of Christ, and is precious in His sight. In heaven there is no racism, no violence, no disease. He died to bring peace and salvation to EVERYONE who believes in Him. Don’t let seeds of division, violence and hate take root in your heart.

This is my human’s prayer for all of you: (she didn’t write it, though)….
