A Sleepy Morning

I’m not getting up yet, Mom.

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?

You ARE a toddler, kid. Listen to the Can Opener.

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.

Well, There goes my duck hunting.

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.”

Looks like she found the cat!
She didn’t have to strain her eyes to find THAT one! MOL!

Twilight Tattles

Dear Mom; I’m going to sell Sushi on E-Bay

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



Twilight’s Tuesday Thanks

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.

Waht?

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!


The Sushi Diet Chronicles

I AM REALLY NOT LIKING THIS DIET.

I have only been on this diet since my last vet appointment. I can feel myself melting away to nothing. So, what’s so bad about weighing 16.3 lbs? I know a lot of humans who WISH they only weighed my weight. But they’re not on the diet- I AM. Poor innocent Sushi. It’s not fair…

The human heard me “snoring” during my nap today. Know what? I wasn’t snoring. THAT WAS MY TUMMY GROWLING! I can’t believe she actually bought me “weight management” food. When I complain that I’m getting fed less often, and getting different food, she tells me I’ll feel better when I’ve lost a few pounds. “One ounce at a time, Sushi.”

I’d love to give her “one ounce” of my claws.

Twilight knows its hard on me. And she doesn’t rat me out when I finish off her food. She just heads outside and leaves her dish for me to finish. But the trick is finding it before the human sees it and picks it up.

But at least the Can Opener is playing with me more now. I love that.

And Twilight makes me feel better.


Sleepy Sunday

A cold, windy day- Perfect for napping!

Today suddenly went from warm and sunny to cold and windy so I didn’t want to go out with Twilight. She loves to be outside when it’s windy- she flies around, chasing butterflies, hunting squirrels, threatening birds, and climbing trees. I prefer to snuggle up inside with the Can Opener while she has her morning devotion and coffee. This morning I completely took over the pillow she had put in her lap for her Bible and journal. I knew she’d let me stay there. And she did.

I fell asleep within minutes but then Twilight came in- and she didn’t like that I had “her” spot with the human. She took a swipe at me, and right away I swatted her back- then of course, the human intervened and I went back to sleep.

I was happy to hear the human playing with her in the living room after that, so I knew I could sleep without being ambushed again. But wouldn’t you know….

She came back! This time she didn’t bother me. But the human had gone back to the bedroom to do her journaling and Twilight wanted to nap near her.

Fine with me- as long as she leaves me alone. Nothing like an annoying little ‘sister’ to wake you out of a purrfect dream!


Twilight Therapy

I hear you have been seeing a lot of Sushi lately….

I’m noticing that Sushi has been hogging my blog lately- I’ve also heard from the neighborhood cats that she says I’ve been running around with my “boyfriend” all the time. So I decided to clear up some things.

First of all, Mr. Sootface is NOT my boyfriend. He’s stalking me and I’m not hanging out with him, I’m trying to run him off. He has 16 wives and about 300 kittens scattered all over America and I’m not about to let him add me to his harem, or whatever they call it. I’m too cute for that nonsense.

In fact, I’m not looking for a boyfriend at all. I’m looking for MICE. Or, at least a duckling. But mice are a lot easier to catch, and then you don’t have an angry mama duck chasing you down. They really can be so unreasonable!

You know, that hummingbird could be a fun catch, too…

I suspect that diet the vet put Sushi on is making her grumpy. No, wait- she was already grumpy.

Ooops. She heard that.

I think I’ll just take a nap now, Sushi.


Twilight’s “Mother’s Day”

My Mama spent the day with me!

The Humans had Mother’s Day recently. But My Mama wasn’t here.

This morning when the Can Opener woke up and got her coffee she opened the back door for fresh air and my (still feral) Mama was there! We were so happy! My human has been taking care of her since she had me in the back yard (her second litter of kittens)…

They got her to a vet, got her shots and had her spayed- and tried for months to get her adopted. Though the cat rescue place took her in for two months, she just wouldn’t stay. So when they found homes for the (3rd litter of kitties) she was pregnant with they asked to bring her back where they found her. We were thrilled to have her back. I had missed her and kept looking for her.

Over the years, she’s learned to trust my human, and will let her get close enough to put food down for her. My Mama will actually sit and stare at her and “talk” to her and slowly blink her eyes at her. But my human mama has never tried to touch her, because she doesn’t want to scare her away.

But this morning we had breakfast together. My Can Opener saw us playing hide-and-seek together under the bushes and playing together on the playset – we chased butterflies and caught some bugs. We wanted that cute little green hummingbird that keeps visiting the lilac tree- but it’s too fast for us. Then we went duck hunting at the stream behind the house.

I had looked and waited in the windowsill all day looking for my Mama on Mother’s Day, and she never came. I guess all the extra people in the neighborhood that day made her nervous. So today, I gave her my breakfast and my Redi Whip and treats as a sort of late “Mother’s Day” present. Oh, sure – I was hungry. But I can eat as much as I want whenever I want. My Mama can’t.

I even carried a couple of my favorite toy mice outside for her to have something to play with because she doesn’t have any toys.

So all you kitties (and humans) out there, take good care of your Mamas. Because they’re the reason you’re alive. And they need love too.

Now I need a nap, so I can stay out with Mama tonight when she comes for dinner.

goodnight!

Sunday “Peace Treaty”

On Friday, Twilight and I had a discussion.

It didn’t go very well.

We fought over the Tiny Human. It started with The Tiny One wanting to play with me with my new wand toy. But Twilight decided she wanted the Tiny One all to herself…

Every time the Tiny One started to come to me, Twilight got to her first, and started asking the Tiny One to play with her. I got mad. So, we decided to have a saucer of milk together and talk about it like adult cats.

That saucer of milk never happened. The “talk” did. It went like this;

After careful consideration, Twilight decided she’d rather go outside and play, so she did.

Meanwhile, while she went outside, I made a point of letting the Tiny One know I would love to play with her while Twilight was out. I’d even be helpful and take care of any stray treats she had laying around someplace neglected and forgotten. I knew the Tiny One is very conscientious and would want to help keep things clean, so I felt it would be rude to not offer my assistance. She agreed.

Thirty or so treats later, she decided we’d rather play than tidy up, and I agreed, since the chicken bites were looking almost empty.

The problem with the Tiny One playing with me though, is that her attention is too easily diverted to the swingset in the backyard. Pretty soon, she ditched me to go outside and play with the Can Opener and her sister. And the Human’s sister gave the little One a monkey to play with. And then, right after that, Sheba came out to play with her and her monkey. Just my luck!

I decided to take my nap- but Twilight had come in and took MY SPOT! *sigh*

She feels no guilt at all.

Twilight’s Tuesday Tickles

*YAWN*

The coffee just isn’t working this morning.

Maybe it’s because I stayed out playing late last night – (best time for mouse hunting) – maybe it’s the fact that it’s pouring rain outside, or the fact that the Can Opener is taking “Quiet time” before the Critters keep her hopping for the rest of the day. All I know is the coffee isn’t working for me- (or the human).

Maybe it’ll liven things up a little bit if we look at some funnies together? Let’s give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by peeps. Have a great day- it’s my naptime.
