Meme Monday

Why does 4:30 am come so early? I’m going back to sleep!

Memes to kick-start your week!

It’s that time again- time to start another week! Did you know your mindset when you first wake up every morning -(not just on Mondays)- will determine the rest of your day?

There are two things the Can Opener starts her mornings with regardless of how she feels when she wakes up- the first is thanksgiving. She thanks The Lord every morning for a new day to know His goodness, love and grace-

She thanks Him for getting her safely through this last year- (with sanity intact)- she thanks Him for the fact that she was safe as she slept, for the ability to see clearly, to breathe without need of assistance- to take care of her own physical needs, and for all her mental and physical abilities that so many even younger than she have lost.

Then, she thinks Him for humor! For us kitty girls, because we give her lots of love and snuggles and make her laugh- and we keep her company.

The Lord showed her that no matter how she feels emotionally or physically when she wakes up in the morning, there is great power in giving thanks and choosing joy.

So this morning, we want to encourage you- no matter what may be going on in your life, to focus your thoughts on the good things in your life- to voice thanksgiving that you woke up today- and to expect that something GOOD will happen in your life.

Then- LAUGH. There is strength in joy. And here’s a few things to get you started in case you’re having a hard time today! Enjoy!






Caturday Crazies

Mom! Make this box bigger!

It’s Caturday Finally!

The Can Opener’s schedule keeps changing but it’s finally Caturday and I have her all to my cute little self- (when Sushi’s sleeping, that is). So I’ve been a little crazy this morning, you know- zipping in and out of the house, and up on top of the desk so I can hit Mom in the head with my silvervine sticks from above while she’s on the computer.

It’s a good thing she doesn’t have a temper, because when I did it she had just sat a fresh cup of coffee on the desk, then got herself a bowl of cottage cheese and blueberries, and before she could even pick up her spoon, I knocked the silver vine stick off the top of the desk and it fell within 1/4 of an inch of her breakfast.

Man, my aim is off lately! I need more practice!

Earlier I hopped up onto the dresser in the bedroom and discovered a great felt-lined box that just had to be put there just for me- (it had a bird on the lid, so why else would it be there)? So I got Mom to open it for me, so I could check it out- but she needs to stretch it, because I can’t fit into it very well.

After that, I teamed up with my Mama who had stopped by for breakfast, (and mid-morning snack, and lunch-) and we tormented the neighborhood squirrels for a while. Sheba came outside and got mad that my Mama was breathing her air, and tried to chase her away- but the Can Opener heard my Mama cry out and she got MAD at Sheba and chased her away!!! 😹

Now I’m tired and ready to steal the heating pad and take a nap- then I’ll take some of these suggestions from my friends for fun when I wake up!

Mom NEVER leaves the paper towels where I can get my paws on them. Sometimes she’s so rude.

Oh yes, I’m going to have fun when I wake up! 😹

Let’s play a game next, Mom!


The Sushi Diet Chronicles

Oops. She CAUGHT ME!

It started out good today- the Can Opener had a busy morning and after getting home from work, she fed me. Then she gave me love and saw that I knew she was about to get on the computer and I wanted to be on the desk on my fat pillow next to her, so she put me up there.

Then she went in the kitchen, washed her hands, and I climbed up on my pillow, got all comfy, and went right to sleep. A little bit later, I woke up to a heavenly aroma and saw the Can Opener walking back into the kitchen- and right in front of me was a delicious roast beef and ham sandwich she had made just for me!

So I did what any cat in her right mind would do- I dove into it! I certainly didn’t want her think I was ungrateful-

I was wondering though, why she would put that funny green stuff and that brown funny- smelling stuff she calls ‘mustard’ on my sandwich- but nobody’s perfect, right? I was just glad she didn’t put the red pepper on it (this time).

Then suddenly she comes back to her desk with a PICKLE in her hand- did she really expect I’d eat that thing?

Then all of a sudden she noticed how much I was enjoying her sandwich, and she said “Sushi! NO!!”

And all of a sudden she jerked up the sandwich and cleaned up the mustard and green stuff off her desk, and there went my great sandwich -(well, the ham and the other stuff anyway- I’d already eaten the roast beef) – except for 2 pieces that she pried out from under my paws and threw away! How rude can you get?

Now she’s going to be watching me like a paranoid hawk again because I’m
on a diet– But she gave it to me! And anyway, I’m not the only kitty that “steals” food!

These guys do it too!

And I thought she was just being super sweet today….HMPH! 😿


Twilight’s Monday Mischief

Hey, Can Opener. You need to find another weatherman. I don’t like this one’s reports.

The Rain is here again. Time to get creative.

Once again it’s raining constantly. As if that wasn’t enough, its also freezing cold. There goes my hunting plans. I’m convinced that the rats and mice in the neighborhood have orchestrated this debacle just to torment me, only I can’t figure out quite how they managed it.

But boy, when I do figure it out- they’re going to pay!

Meanwhile, I have to find less appetizing ways to entertain myself until the rain stops and the sun comes out again. I can only play so many tricks on Sushi- (she’s got no sense of humor)- and the Can Opener only plays with me for a few minutes at a time before she darts off to do something else, so I’m connecting with some of the neighborhood cats to get some fresh ideas.

Hey- This idea promises to be fun!

Maybe I’ll just start hunting for Bigfoot-

Well, What do you know! I found him!

Well, that was short-lived. Now what am I going to do?


Sushi’s Catty Wednesday

No it’s not my fault, Twilight!

If I’d had MY way, I’d be posting every day.

It isn’t my fault like Twilight says. (I heard that little brat)! I’ve been doing my part to make sure our Can Opener remembers to type for us. I mean, if planting myself on her lap within 60 seconds of her sitting down – (and informing her I’m not moving) – doesn’t tell her to sit down and blog, then I don’t know what does. I mean, what else does she have to do if she’s planted for a couple of hours while I get my beauty sleep?

But do you know what she says? “I can’t do that with you on my lap, Sushi- My computer’s on the desk!” EXCUSES!

I see no reason why she can’t hang the laptop from the ceiling or something (without it resting on my belly while I’m asleep on her lap)- she’s always up for a challenge, but for some reason she insists on yanking me off her lap and plopping me on the couch like her bathrobe or something when we want her to type for us. I think she’s just being stubborn.

But, she has been working a lot lately – and her sister’s health problems keep coming back- (all the more reason to sit down and snuggle me when she gets home)- so maybe I’ll cut her a little slack- as long as I get my snuggle time.

Meanwhile, she has been taking time to play with me more often. I just wish she didn’t always schedule my playtime during my naps when I want to be sleeping!

Well, that was fun- now I’m ready for a nap. That stretching is hard work!

Now for some laughs!


Good Grief!

Actually, there’s nothing good about grief…

Too many people are burdened by anxiety, stress, and grief- and cats are the cure.

Our Can Opener has had her paws full lately. And everywhere we look we hear bad reports and see a lot of anxious or grieving people. The Can Opener herself is still grieving- and so is her sister. But they know of several things that really help- (we’ll talk about those later)- but guess what? We cats are great therapists!

From the beginning time, humans have seen that their cats make them smile, bring them warmth and comfort, and give them a reason to get up in the morning. That’s because if they don’t get up in the morning, their cats will eat their donuts before they can have a chance to.

But besides serving as your faithful alarm clocks (to remind you of our 3 am feeding schedule), and helping you avoid those un-necessary calories in those donuts that you always regret eating later, cats are great for your mental health in a ton of other ways.

Friday Funnies

If you think I’m working out, forget about it!

This is just my way of guaranteeing I get the Can Opener’s immediate attention! 😹

She’s busy with the Critters today- those loud things that eat everything in sight and leave a trail …. and she loves every minute of it. But that means I don’t get the attention that the Queen of the house deserves. So I decided to amuse myself while she’s occupied with the loud things.

This is how I cheer myself up, when my crown gets brushed aside…

I would tell the Can Opener I want to hang out with her, but with my luck she’d do this!
At least this cat warned his human. No warning from me!
Our Can Opener does the same thing! Every. Flipping. Day! Outrageous!
I think I’ll pack my bags- as soon as I find one that fits….

Here he is again….

Go someplace else, Smokey! This is OUR HOUSE!
I’m Smokey- and they don’t know it yet, but they’re going to adopt me.

I’ve been stealing everyone’s heart

Aren’t I cute? I’m absolutely adorable, and I know it because every neighbor around here tells me all the time. Today I visited Twilight and Sushi’s house -(they have the best food, and the Can Opener doesn’t yell at me and chase me away like some of the other neighbors). A lot of the neighbors around here are trying to help find out where I belong- if I’m lost or something.

But I keep telling them where I belong! Right HERE on Twilight’s throne! The problem is, Twilight and Sushi disagree and the Can Opener listens to them, not me. So I have to convince the Can Opener that I’m cuter than them.

So far I’m not having much luck. And the big one looks like she could eat me- so I’m kind of nervous, but the food is great in the neighborhood- and sooner or later, somebody is going to adopt me!

Mom- he’s back- get rid of him or I WILL!

FINE! I’LL GO…(But I’ll be back)…. at dinnertime!
