A Catified Monday

Just in case your Monday is a little rocky, here’s some cuteness to brighten your day!

Are you CAT-ified today?

The Can Opener has had a lot on her mind for the last year and a half. Sushi and I decided she needs more CAT-ification, so we’re tag-teaming her to get her mind off all the other stuff going on. I started by climbing up on my favorite box to swat at her when she walked by on her third trip to the bathroom putting away fresh towels from the dryer… while Sushi yelled at her for walking too close to her tail as she lounged in the carpet.

Watch out for that speed bump, Mom!

She started laughing at us and then thought about all of you and realized she’s missed a few days typing for us- (AGAIN). So after generously rewarding us with treats and tuna, she finally decided to do some typing for us. We’re going to take advantage of it before she can think of something else she needs to get done!

So we want to put some smiles on your faces today and remind you that if you’re feeling stressed, depressed and oppressed, it’s time to get OBSESSED (with cats)!

There’s all kinds of benefits to (thinking you) own cats…

We’re great therapists- and we don’t interrupt you when your bawling your eyes out-(but we may fall asleep).
We also help you with your grocery shopping, making sure you don’t buy spoiled produce or get charged too much per pound.

We support you when you fall off the diet wagon.
As long as you share…
We greet you when you come home from a long day at work- even if it is to remind you we’re hungry!
We help you stay alert when you’re working those long hours at home on your computer.
We also help protect you from temporary insanity.

Dear Twilight,

Forgive me, your Royal Highness…

I have noticed your narrowed eyes glaring at me from the cat tree, the windowsill, the top of the refrigerator and the kitchen counters -(by the way, you’re not supposed to be there).

I’ve also noticed your refusal to come to me when I call, or to play with me since I left you and Sushi home on Easter Sunday. Then there’s also the tell-all revelations from “sleepy Sushi” that you didn’t think she would tell me when I got home.

Thanks for ratting on me, Mom- I think I’ll go visit my friends in the jungle….

“Tell- all revelations” from Sushi, huh?

But Twilight, my dear sweet girl- it was Easter Sunday! I didn’t abandon you and Sushi – (I came back home, right)? And the reason I smelled like Serafina and Abby is because I spent the day with the Critters and their parents and Serafina and Abby live there!

Hey Twilight- we’re cousins!
Yes Twilight- we’re not trying to steal your Mom-
we love OUR MOM!

So, what will it take to make you feel better?? Another thousand belly rubs? Another boatload of treats, and more whipped cream? Or an open refrigerator?

💚That’s what I thought!💚


This is mine. Back off!

Cat claiming a box for playtime.
This is MINE. You can’t open this package, Mom. This box is my toy perch now.

I know it was sent to you- but it’s MINE now.

Yes, Mom. I know my big bag of food is inside- but I’m not hungry- and besides, I haven’t finished the first bag. So that means this is my new play perch, and you can’t open it. It’s just the right size for me to perch on so I can swipe at you when you walk by- and the best part is, Sushi can’t get up here!

Just buy me another bag because if you open my box It’ll fall when I try to jump up here. But hey- why don’t we play while you think about it?

By the way, Mom- don’t tell Sushi I said it, but you need to give her the eye treatment now….while I go hide!

And after that, maybe you can tell me why you left me and Sushi alone yesterday —ON EASTER— and came back smelling like Serafina and Abby??

This better be good….


Before you answer, just remember who I’m related to….
