We’ve had problems with our internet connection for the last couple of days- for some reason, everytime we have stormy weather here, the internet goes out. So Twilight and I have been itching to get our paws on the laptop again -(she to complain, me to brag)!
It’s been pouring rain for the last couple of days- (on and off all day long)- and Twilight has been miserable since she couldn’t go outside (without getting wet).
So this morning the Can Opener brought out the catnip and I got so EXCITED! But not Twilight-
Twilight thinks I’m crazy for loving this stuff- so when Mom brought it out she just stared at me like I’m a lunatic, while I rolled all over the rug and got crazy. It was the most fun I’ve had in a whole week!
Twilight lost interest in playing after Mom brought out the catnip and decided to go out in the rain after all and intimidate a squirrel or two. That’s fine with me, because after I got tired of playing, it was grooming and cuddle time (my favorite)!
Why did she say she could make a whole new cat from this?
Cats love Caturday. Unless their humans leave them alone all day, or they have a bazillion creatures running around tearing the house apart, throwing things, screaming and shredding the drapes – (before you get the chance), or putting their grubby little fingers in the cat food, and dumping out your water. That might stress a cat out – just a little.
When a cat has to deal with things like that, they might show some signs of being a little hissed off. They might misbehave a little bit- or just plain lose it altogether…
And especially if there are little critters running around in the house with their playmates, your cat might get slightly exhausted from all the chaos and just drop into a coma…
But if they don’t drop into a coma or lose their minds, they may decide to spend some time problem solving…
Or use their Caturdays to settle a score…
Whatever you humans have planned for your Caturday, better make sure your cat is happy too!
I spent the first part of my Caturday keeping the Can Opener company while she had her coffee and prayer time. Now I’m trying to play with my favorite wand toy (with colorful bows on it)- and Twilight keeps trying to snag it. I swatted the fleas right off the little brat and told her to go catch a mouse or something, then I decided to park on it so she can’t pick it up and drag it away.
I think the Can Opener was shocked. That’s okay- that just means she’s fully awake now and Twilight knows not to mess with me. Now she’ll probably go dig up a flowerbed someplace.
While the Can Opener is outside enjoying the sunshine, I want to ask how your Caturday is going? I know some of you cats may be lonely and bored (which is a great excuse to nap)-
Or maybe you’re stuck in a house full of those tiny little noise-makers trying to be good and not scratch them to ribbons…
Or, maybe your sniffing the air looking for a neighborhood barbeque to inspect… (let me know if you find one- with GPS coordinates, please)… or
Maybe you’re making dinner plans for later… I’ll be right over to help you with that Door Dash. Happy Caturday!
I’ve been talking to Sushi about ways to get the Can Opener to settle down and do something to relax for a while and today we found just the thing- so we want to share it with you too. We didn’t think there were any cats cuter or more entertaining than us, but after seeing this handsome Siamese and the other clown cats in this video, we just may be wrong.
Well, Sushi may be wrong- I’m never wrong. And if this is wrong, it’s Sushi’s fault. *Just sayin’.*
Watch and laugh- but the Siamese is going to be my new boyfriend- (I’m going to tell him-Just so he knows).
Wait – No. Why should I give the spotlight to other cats who clearly aren’t as cute as me?
Oh. THAT’S Why. The Can Opener says I have to. She really is getting on my last nerve.
Since the Can Opener is starting a little LATE with our post today (she’s getting on our last nerve) … We decided to show you some cats being at their ultimate Caturday Cuteness. Of course, Sushi had to insist on being first.
It’s hard to be a Motivator with my heavy napping schedule.
But somehow, between listening to the human whine, uh- “tell me her troubles,”- and reminding her of exactly how often I should be fed – (Every time someone goes into the kitchen) – combined with my heavy napping schedule and keeping an eye on what Psycho Cat next door is doing, I still have managed to help quite a few intelligent cats like myself find new careers for themselves.
Today, I’d like for you to meet some of them:

Our human woke up with pain in her back- so she got her coffee and sat down on her bed with her nice, warm heat wrap to lean against while she groomed me this morning.
At least that was her plan. But she made the mistake of leaving the wrap on the bed right next to me, so I decided to make sure it stayed nice and toasty until she came back.
I never said I would give it back. When she came back with her coffee and sat on the bed, she got comfy then noticed her wrap had disappeared. I pretended to be asleep so she wouldn’t take it from me.
I had no idea a heated pillow would feel so heavenly. I couldn’t help kneading my paws into it as I drifted off to sleep. Anyway, it wasn’t my fault that it was so warm and fuzzy and smelled like lavender. But right when I was thinking how nice it was that she let me rest on it, she decided she needed it, and woke me up by taking it away.
I was just about to object loudly, when I noticed that she had something in her hand that wasn’t coffee- treats! Well, they aren’t warm and fuzzy, but they’re delicious- so I settled and let her have it back.
Twilight and I decided last night that I’m the cutest.
Just don’t tell her I said so. By the time we came to that decision, I was tired of talking and fell asleep leaving her to talk to whatever mice she might find. I mean, really, I don’t see the point of the discussion anyway. Some things are just facts that can’t be disputed. One of these days, she’ll finally quit arguing with me.
Speaking of cute cats, I decided since it’s Caturday, it’s time so share some other cute cats- since nobody can look at cats for long without smiling. It’s a good way to start the day. You’re welcome.
