Hi! I'm Twilight!
Champion Mouser, purrsonal (human) trainer, hypnotist, and sleep therapist. My new sister, Sushi and I are always up to no good, but we have a lot of fun. Join us for all things cat! We will soon be starting lessons for you cats to
teach you how to master the humans around you and have them wrapped around your little paws!

This morning started out perfectly. The Can Opener finally slept well (since the TMJ started) – and took her coffee outside with me so we could listen to the chatter of the birds (even though she won’t let me catch one), and she could enjoy the pretty flowers and pick some raspberries, while I soaked up the sun.
It’s still early, and Twilight’s out someplace with her Mama. She’s trying to impress her Mama (cat) with her hunting abilities. The Human still has the annoying headache she’s had for three days now. But she’s starting to feel a little better- and I’m starting to put Sheba in her place, so she doesn’t harass me and swat at me like she does everyone else. I think it’s a good thing I’m bigger than her, because she knows I can flatten her if I have to.
She got a new pillow a few days ago, and (according to her doctor), it triggered TMJ in her jaw- she woke up a couple of hours after falling asleep 3 nights ago when she slept on her new pillow, with extreme pain in her jaw on one side, and difficulty opening her mouth.
The next morning she had a hard time eating, and has had constant pain in her jaw, and pain when touching it, and since then, she’s also had a bad headache that refuses to be relieved.
She says this is why she’s had a hard time helping Sushi and me post. We’re not buying it- because she still drinks her coffee and lemon water and eats ice cream just fine.
I’ve been telling Sushi we may need to trade the Can Opener in for a newer model, but she says “Why? Her hands still work, and she still feeds us.”
We’re going to have a serious talk with that human this morning- because “her headache” is apparently making her slack off on other things too – (like handing out our treats in a timely manner). The doctor says this could last 3-4 weeks – but I don’t think we can.
She was advised to try acupuncture if it lasts longer than 4 weeks (WE’ll DIE)!
So Sushi and I are sharpening our claws – we’re going to try some “acupuncture” of our own! 😹
Breakfast? Why Yes, Mom- Make it Redi Whip with a fresh mouse garnish, please.
Mom got up at 4:00 this morning and wanted to cuddle me. But I’d stayed out til 2:00 and just wanted to sleep. I had no plans of getting up just to get snuggles (I can get snuggles anytime)- But I heard Mom go in the kitchen, and Sushi told me the Tiny One was coming. All of a sudden I was starving. I ordered breakfast, but the Can Opener never gets it right. She sometimes gives me the Redi Whip, but she NEVER remembers the fresh mouse garnish. And, she makes me eat food first. Who told her I was a toddler?
I wonder why Sushi always thinks I need her opinion. Soon after breakfast, I heard the giggle heard around the world and the loud BUMP that follows it through the front door and I ran out the back as fast as possible. The next thing I knew, the Tiny One and an even TINIER one was out in my yard haunting all my favorite spots.
Since it wasn’t safe to stay outside, I came in for a long nap – and when I woke up from that, the Tiny One had fallen asleep (finally)! I went out to practice my duck hunting and came in later after they had gone home and found my human getting into a book of Brain puzzles she got on Mother’s Day… “Find the Cat.”
Today she got on my last nerve. I know she was trying to sleep, but all I wanted to do was play. She didn’t like that idea, so she got up and swatted me and I defended myself and she got even MORE mad. I really think this diet is making her too grumpy to live with.
Look- here’s how it went, just because I tried to play with her.
Please either take her off the diet, and FEED THE THING (enough to satisfy her), or let me sell her. Thanks, Twilight
Disclaimer: No cats committed crimes today (at least not any of us), and no kittens were really hurt.
A Celebration of Father’s Day For the Backup Can Opener
Today was set aside to be an early Father’s Day celebration for our Human Daddy. He was completely surprised. So were we. Sushi and I didn’t know our humans were going anywhere. We just woke up from our naps and they were gone. And so was our warm, sunny day. I think the Weather guy got confused, because our warm day turned into a cold, rainy day. And our humans didn’t come back home until later. We’ll get even with them, you can count on it.
They spent the day with the Critters and their parents, playing games and having a barbeque. They came home smelling like burgers, and french fries, and hot dogs- and chocolate. And none for Sushi and me. Like I said, we’ll get even later.
They discovered a game called Cat Crimes– They played it for a long time- with Serafina Coaching them and snoopervising. She had to show them how to play…
When they were done playing that game, she had to teach them how to play Exploding Kittens.
They played that until the food was ready and then everyone forgot about the games. Including Serafina and Abby – (who was too busy looking for burgers to hang around for pictures). Then they played video games. Boy, do they have a LOT of explaining to do.
Tomorrow, Sushi and I will have some plans of our own. And WE won’t be playing games!
But then the Critters showed up. The Big Critter and the Tiny One made me so happy the minute they came in the door. Their faces light up so much when they see me, and they race to me and pet me and compete to give me treats- and they make me happy. I guess I just have to admit I love the noisy little turkeys.
I keep a watch on them (for the human Can Opener) while she’s busy making breakfast and lunch and treats for them- and I help when she helps them with their schoolwork- (although I do fall asleep sometimes).
What I think I like most about them is the laughter and joy they bring (even if they do bring a lot of noise with them at the same time). And I like watching the Tiny One play.
I like a lot about them -(especially when they fall asleep)…
But this drawing the Big Critter did today says it all….
Yeah- I think I love the Tiny One- just a little bit.
I think it’s time to find some things to be Thankful for. Maybe it’ll help Sushi not be grumpy….
Okay, maybe not. But I still am a very thankful kitty, and I think Sushi has a lot to be thankful for – even if she can’t see it.
Oh, I’m thankful, Twilight. Really. I’m thankful for my home and my soft queen sized bed, and that I have a crazy cat lady human who spoils me, and I’m thankful for you- (sometimes). But I’m especially thankful for my food and my tuna treats.
That’s not your queen sized bed, Sushi- that’s the humans’… they just let you sleep on it with them, so the backup Can Opener doesn’t drag all the blankets into the floor – because with you on the bed, nothing moves- not even the humans, when you’re laying on them….
Yes, I know- that’s something else I’m thankful for. That way I stay warm and cozy- even if they stay flattened!
Now that’s enough thanksgiving. Be quiet! You’re keeping me awake!
We think you’ll enjoy this video- it’ll help you understand your own kitties better! Enjoy!
