Thankful, (Rainy) Tuesday

Rain, Rain, and More Rain.

I can’t play outside unless I want a shower- and from the looks of it, If this keeps up, I’ll need to swim! But I am (sort of) thankful for the rain. Because now there’s no more wildfire smoke choking out my air and making my fur smell like awful.

And, it does keep my grass beautifully soft and green, and makes it grow better so I have plenty of places to lurk around waiting for Sheba to saunter by so I can jump out and scare the whiskers off her!!!

Mom- I’m not doing “A little Obsessed!”

I’m also thankful that The Can Opener is making Sushi exercise every day- but I think she gets more of a workout sharpening her claws on the mat, than she does playing and constantly trying to follow her food dish until the human sets it down.

I need it to stop raining though- even though the humans love it- because the little Critters will be here tomorrow, and if it’s raining, and they’re stuck inside, and I’m stuck inside, it’s not going to be good…..I just may be tempted to get micheivious…just sayin.’

I’d better start planning now…

Caturday Cats

Finally a warm, sunny day to monopolize the yard. It’s about time!

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.

Grumpy always brings a smile.
Must be a critter in the house lurking around someplace.
Finally, a cat with my point of view!
Again, another cat with my point of view!
I wouldn’t advise these cats to say what they’re thinking.

HAPPY CATURDAY!


Discussion with Sushi!

I want to post about how beautiful and sweet I am. Twilight disagrees. We’re discussing it.

This could get heated.

Sushi and I can’t decide what to post about. The Can Opener has been waiting for us to make up our minds. But I’m not the problem. I want to post about me, and Sushi doesn’t want to.

Meanwhile the rewards are waiting for us to come to an agreement. Looks like it’s going to be a long night.

Well, at least she came to the living room to discuss it …(because it’s strategically close to the kitchen).
Let’s sleep on it Twilight. *Snore*

So much for that discussion.

Goodnight.

Twilight’s Tuesday Thanks

Good Morning, Can Openers! It’s important to be thankful. And to manage your stress levels. Here’s how I do it.

I want to give you all my recipe for happiness!

I’ll bet you didn’t think cats keep recipes did you? I didn’t think so. Well, you’re right. We don’t. We’re too busy chasing mice and those delicious little delicacies that hover around the hummingbird feeders, and running from the little 2 – legged monsters that are louder than a flipping jet engine.

But we have to cope somehow, right? How do we do it? Well, here’s one of my favorite ways of coping- One of my favorite things to do is sneak up on Sushi while she’s sleeping and swat the holy fleas right off her.

*note*- I never said Sushi likes it. I just like doing it. It’s a great stress reliever-

Disclaimer: Don’t try this at home.

It could be hazardous to your health.

Seriously though- You have to make time for FUN! Take time to unwind and relax. You humans seem to have a really hard time with that – but one thing my humans have found that really helps them is taking time to do something they enjoy (like feeding me treats).

And don’t watch the news. It’s hazardous to your health! I mean, really- why bother? It’s always the same stressful nonsense anyway. Just record it and replay it for a few weeks, and you’ll see it rarely changes. So, skip it. Instead, focus your thoughts on all the things in your life that you are thankful for. If you can’t think of anything, go visit someone who’s worse off than you, and all of a sudden you’ll see a ton of things to be thankful for in your own life.

Also remember- all the things that are so stressful right now won’t go on forever. Things will get better. Love your families. Be kind to others. BE the change you want to see in the world. Don’t be overcome by darkness, but overcome the darkness with light.

And one more thing- don’t go around swatting people who aren’t messing with you. That only works if you’re a cat.


And get enough sleep…

Fab Furball Friday!

I’m posting about fabulous furballs today- so of course, I have to start with myself!

Fabulous felines who know how to get what they want

I need to be more professional in my safety violations…
This sweetheart is very compassionate for the poor little canary all locked up. He believes in freedom!
This kitty knows how to use “wind” to his advantage!

I agree! Order some squirrels from Amazon, Mom.
This guy is apparently good at spelling…


And just in case you’re still not smiling,…. here’s one more reason!

Just to help you appreciate how flipping pawsome I am.

Sushi the Brat Cat

I’m mad at Sushi.

The Can Opener wouldn’t let me stay outside tonight because it’s going to be cold- and she wanted to play with me.

We were having fun- kicking my favorite golf ball back and forth, along with some of my other favorite toys that I haven’t played with for a while (because I love to stay out at night).

But then we wanted to play with the feather toy, and Sushi woke up and gave me a dirty look for playing with her toy- and since I didn’t want to get flattened by her sitting on me, I decided to hop up on the counter and then on top of the fridge, and then on top of the kitchen cabinets and stay there until she fell asleep – (she can’t get to me up there).

We were having so much fun!
But then I looked up,…
Leave it to the ten ton tuna to spoil my playtime!

Watching over our Human

Our Can Opener burned her thumb and three fingers this morning so Sushi and I are babysitting her-

It was this morning while she was making breakfast for the critters. She has been hurting all day and has seen the doctor because she has white patches and missing skin on her fingertips and down the length of her fingers.

We’ve been trying to help her ever since this morning and she has tingling and numbness in her fingers and partly up her elbows.

She is having a hard time doing things and her thumb and fingers are swelling – luckily the big Critter was here also and she jumped into action abs helped the Human with the things Sushi and I can’t do. She helped a lot with Lily, and kept the dishes washed all day and made our Human feel a lot better.

The doctor said she had second degree burns and some nerve damage. She’s had a rough time doing anything on the computer because it hurts to type, so we told her to use the swipe keyboard in her phone instead of sitting at the computer at her desk. Swiping with her pinkie is much easier.

I’ve been sticking close to her- all day. Oh- And check out my new collar!
I even told Mocha, (my boyfriend) to stay away for a few days so I can take care of our Human.

It’s Sushi’s shift now. She missed her vet appointment today- lucky girl!

It’s my turn to take care of the Can Opener now. Go play Twilight! I get dibs on the treats!
Thank you, doctor!

Thursday Therapy

Sometimes we just need a little comfort- And a good laugh doesn’t hurt, either.

It’s been a long week- and it’s getting super hot again. We think it’s time to bring some smiles!

So we’re going to share some goodies. Take a few deep breaths, and relax for a few minutes.

There are few things that are as calming as a teddy bear.
Especially in the hands of a Tiny Critter.
And cats (of course), are soothing too… Especially funny ones!

Have a happy Thursday!


Twilight and Sushi’s Cat Facts

We’ve been talking…

Sushi and I want you to understand some basic things about us cats. Ready?

1.) When you call us, we hear you just fine. But we’re waiting to see what’s in it for us.

“I can’t hear you!”

2.) Just because we scratch, doesn’t necessarily mean we have fleas. Sometimes we just can’t figure you out.

” Eight zillion humans in this world and I got stuck with this one.”

3.) Yes, we talk about you, judge you, and sometimes laugh at you too.

“Oh, my Fleas! Humans are such morons!”

4.) We take our playtime seriously- you should too. Don’t tease us!

“You’re stopping already?”

5.) Everything is forgiven when treats are opened *purrs*

Have we told you lately how much we love you?
