Friday Fab Felines

I want to introduce some of my Cat Careers graduates!

Fab Felines Cat Career Graduates

It’s been a while since I’ve done my Cat Career classes- but that’s only because my napping schedule is way behind. I’ve only slept 18 hours today, and I’m exhausted! However, I keep sniffing out skills that my fellow cat-mates have and show them how to develop them into careers!

For example, in my own career as a Cat Purrsonal Trainer, sleep is very important. That’s why I make sure to set a great example by consistently demonstrating effective napping techniques and the importance of staying on schedule.

You’re welcome.

Since Fab Felines are the topic today, I’m introducing some of my favorite students and their new careers!

Pixie- she has a thing for studying math. Now she’s a tutor.
Mittens- smarter than most kittens, I trained him as a remote technician.
Mitzi and Frank – comedians.
Slyvester always had an answer for everything.
Now he’s a politician.

Well, I’m late for my 8th nap, so that’s it for today! Enjoy! I’ll be back soon with more graduates!


“Tumbling Tom” was always a little weird. I got him a job in a psych ward at the local animal hospital.
Goodnight.

Twilight’s Tuesday Therapy

You need to play with me more, Can Opener…

Play with your cats, or else…

Hey, humans- I know some of you are wound up tighter than a cheap clock these days- but did you know that we cats (and other pets you have) can feel your tension and anxiety too?

Humans use different things to relieve their stress- like vegging out in front of the tv (which can also cause stress)- getting on social media (which not only can drain hours out of your day, but can also add to your stress), and play video games (which can be good- but not for endless hours)… and some do better things like spending time with friends, reading, and exercise- or better yet, going to the beach, parks, or any place that is fun and relaxing.

But in case you never thought about it, there isn’t a lot your pets can do to relieve their anxiety if they are indoor pets, and particularly if you are preoccupied with other things and don’t spend time playing and interacting with them.

Did you know that playing and interacting with your pets helps relieve their feelings of loneliness and anxiety? It not only makes them happier, and gives them some exercise and stimulation, but it’s great for helping you to relax, feel less lonely and anxious, and even lowers your blood pressure!

And just as people don’t like to be ignored, or feel lonely, neither does your cat.

And like people, when cats get bored and lonely- they just might take matters into their own paws… *just sayin’. *

The real reason for the toilet paper ‘shortage.’

And if your cat gets jealous because you spend too much time on the computer, well- he might decide to do something to get your attention…

You’ve been warned!

And if you get too busy to feed the cat, watch out when you go to fridge again- you may get an unpleasant reminder that the cat wants to eat too…

Just a subtle reminder….

And if you don’t play with your cat, they will find other ways to get their exercise and entertainment…

Open the door, Human. We have a guest for lunch!

Trust me, it’s just easier to play with your cat in the first place!


Thursday Therapy

It’s been a while since you’ve had some Twilight therapy-

What’s more therapeutic than cats?

There’s a reason we cats have taken over the internet (and the world)! We are adorable, cute, funny, full of purr-sonality, great for insomnia, great for stress relief, great exterminators (delicious!), and we not only can be trained, but we actually train our humans! Yep, that’s right.

But, did I also mention that we’re loving and sweet and cute?? Here’s adorable little me being cute…

Taking over the desk chair to force my Can Opener away from the computer (demanding playtime).
Wiped out after playing kitty golf with the Can Opener last night.
Here I am not only being cute but being sweet- grooming Sushi to console her after the Can Opener put medicine in her eyes. (Also helping her secretly plot revenge).
Oops- caught in the act! Hey, at least I didn’t pounce on her afterwards – (THIS time)! 😹

Okay, I guess Sushi is cute too- that is if you’re into crazy cats …

I think Sushi gets a little too excited about her grooming…
Sometimes she gets a little- well, STRESSED.
Here’s Sushi’s reaction to the word “Diet.”

So. Who’s the cutest?? Vote below! (For me) 😹


Thanks for your vote!! I’ll console Sushi … 😹

Yesterday it was Spring.

I want to know who stole Spring?

Yesterday and the day before were sunny and warm- the neighbors were working in their yards and visiting (outside) again, and Sushi and I were enjoying the sun.

The doorstep was warm and cozy so Sushi was enjoying her ‘sauna.’ It felt really good on her side after those 4 shots at the Vet’s office…
I went next door where the Can Opener and her sister were talking about plans for the garden while Sheba kept chasing me away when I tried to go sit with them.

The lilac tree is blossoming, and cherry blossoms were flying through the air like snow. I love those- Just like with falling snow, I chase the blossoms and try to catch them when they fall. The Can Opener gets a kick out of watching me do that.

However, she didn’t get a kick out of my threatening the duck couple that came moseying into our yard…

* My goodness, what delicious, I mean, adorable little dinners, DUCKS! *

It was sunny and warm and perfect the last couple of days- and this morning I was all eager to go outside and find my little fillets- I mean, FRIENDS again (just to say hello, really!)- and then the Can Opener opened the door and all of a sudden, it’s Noah’s Ark all over again!

But the funny thing is, if ducks don’t mind water and rain, why didn’t they come back? I just can’t understand it!

But I’ll be waiting when it stops raining.

Sushi and the Vet- and the dogs

Mom- I don’t like it here! What is that black thing the size of a horse with its tongue hanging out? IT’S STARING AT ME!

Hey, Mom- I assure you you don’t have enough treats to buy your way out of this one!

I knew Sushi wasn’t going to appreciate the trip to the vet – But she appreciated it a lot less when we walked in and found that every Human being in the waiting room had a dog with them – (or two). The dogs ranged in size from a cucumber to a mini horse, and then there was the little walking mop with bleeding paws. He had his hair pulled up in a scrunchie with a pink bow on top of his head and couldn’t seem to keep his tongue in his mouth (the rest of them couldn’t, either for some reason) – and he was on a long leash and seemed quite enamored with the gray thing in the pink box with the big green eyes. He wouldn’t have been so enamored if he’d seen her claws.

The appointment was at 6:30 and we were still waiting for Sushi to get taken to a room at 8:00. Sushi objected loudly (and was getting hungry)- so she really didn’t like those overgrown hairballs staring at her and getting closer to her carrier.

Can we go now?
I think they already went home, Mom. Let’s get out of here.
Hey- you said I was here for a checkup- I checked myself and I’m okay! Let’s GO!

By 9:00, Sushi had been examined and the vet confirmed my suspicion that she had an ear infection in her left ear. I also finally got the name of the “skin condition” she has had since we adopted her- and she got an antibiotic shot for that, another antibiotic shot for feline acne (I never knew cats could get acne, but apparently they need either stainless steel, ceramic, or glass dishes to avoid getting it).

Then there were her Rabies and Distemper shots, and a tube of antibiotic ointment for her ear. She got so many comments on her pretty coat and big green eyes, but that didn’t smooth things out enough for her because by now, rain was pounding like a jackhammer on the roof making her even more nervous, and she was cold.

As soon as we got home, I put the carrier down and opened it, and she flew out of it and ran right to her food dish (big surprise).

I felt awful for her, because that was stressful for her- and having to be in the carrier so long wasn’t good. But once she saw she was safely at home and fed (and given her pain medicine)- she stayed as close to me as possible and kept giving me love all night as if to say, “thank you.” It turns out her skin condition is hyperplasia- which makes her skin extra sensitive (nerve condition)- and giving her back scratches too long actually turns painful after a few seconds. My poor baby!

But at least now I know why she sometimes hisses when we scratch her back, and it is being treated, and I’m happy I noticed she was having a problem with her ear and was able to get her help. Already, she is much calmer and happier. And I’ve gotten rid of her dishes that weren’t glass, ceramic, or stainless steel.

Today, she even followed me outside and got to enjoy the sunshine!

I feel all better now, Mom.
Hey, Twilight’s been really sweet to me since I got back- what’s wrong with her?

Goodnight! 💚

Sushi sees the Vet

I would laugh, but the Can Opener would take away my treats…

Our Can Opener can’t let me post right now because she has an appointment this morning- but she promised to let me post after that.

Unfortunately, I have to be nice to Sushi for a while- but believe me, I’ll make up for it later! Mol 😹

What was that about “being nice to me for a little while??” I can still sit on you, you know.

Sunday Saint

I told you, Mom.

I’ve been telling Mom I’m not the brat Sushi says I am

But she didn’t believe me until the halo appeared over my cute little head as she was loving on me this morning. See? I really AM a cute little saint! Sushi still has a different opinion, but well, (how do I say this nicely)??- She’s a tortoiseshell, and well, you know…. they’re a little neurotic…

What was that Twilight? Did you say I’m NEUROTIC?
I’m going to sharpen my teeth, and when I’m done, You’re going to be in TROUBLE!
NO! Of course not! I said, “the human needs a narcotic!” Get your hearing checked, will ya,?

Well, time for me to go find my Mama!! See ya!


Twilight’s Tuesday Musings

I haven’t posted for a few days because I’ve been busy helping the Can Opener.

I’ve been working as the heating pad

It’s hard being a working cat. Since the Can Opener provided hospice care for the Backup Can Opener until he passed in January, she was spending a lot of time running around the hospital and staying there a lot and wasn’t able to keep up with her previous regular workout schedule. As a result, she’s now having some ligament problems and back pain and needed a heating pad to relieve the pain. So, since she likes me a lot better than the heating pad (and she doesn’t need a place to plug me in)- she put me to work and man, have I been busy! *sweats*

This lady is really cramping my style! Just LOOK AT THOSE BIG, FAT DUCKS!

I kept trying to get up and run off at first- because I’m a serious cat. I have ducks and mice to catch, dragonflies to chase, and stray cats to run off! Did she care? No! I was so irritated – especially when I could see the neighbor next door feeding the 30 or so ducks that come to the fence for the bread, he tosses to them.

I told her to use Sushi instead- she’s a queen-size heating pad whose content to lay like a stone for hours, anyway- but the Can Opener just gave me the uplifted eyebrow (uh-oh)- and just stared at me for a minute and then I realized…that’s why I was the one chosen. The Can Opener is hurting enough without a 16-pound speed bump laying on her knees.

(The huge bag of treats sitting next to her really had nothing to do with my decision to give her a break and be her heating pad, just so you know)!

Whew! I’m finally off for the day- time to go DUCK HUNTING!

Don’t miss your doctor appointments, human- I’ve got business to tend to!


I need to go turn those ducks right side up, Mom.

Friday Fab Felines

I love this chair, Human. Nobody else gets MY chair!

Cats that are (almost) as fabulous as Me!

It’s been busy around here for the last couple of days, and the Can Opener needs some rest. So, I told Sushi to sleep on the laptop so she couldn’t get online and spend time ignoring us to do her grocery shopping. At least, that was the plan.

Unfortunately, even though Sushi’s a whale, The Human was still able to pick her up. So, we had a long, boring day while she shopped online and then, did her grief counseling, and set up physical therapy appointments, and signed a new lease, worked out, and attacked the house with that electronic beast (AGAIN). I hate that big, noisy thing!

Now she’s in pain, and “can’t” play with us. We knew this was going to happen, but we couldn’t stop her from wanting to “get things done.”

Staying busy helps her deal with grief. But, when is there time to relax and play? So, since I can’t stop her from all this busy- stuff, I just sit and glare at by her and work on my guilt inducing glares. Apparently, she either isn’t noticing, or I’m losing my touch.

So, I consulted some of my cat pals in the neighborhood for ideas on how to distract her from her distractions and get her attention. I found some pals that are (almost) as cute as me. I’ll try some of their ideas and hope for the best!

I wonder what she’d do if I sunk my teeth into her desk drawer like this? Probably would hurt…
Maybe I’ll borrow her blow dryer like this guy did- if that doesn’t get her attention, nothing will!
Hey! This will WORK! Now I wait until she goes to bed….
Now, here’s an idea… If I sit in one of her favorite plants and stare like this, she just may wonder what’s up…
Well, not a bad idea for such a tiny little kitty. I’ll try this next.
And now I wait… She can’t stay awake forever!
