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.

How to Train your Humans

That’s it, Human. Good little human. Now hand over the treats and you can go have your coffee.

Training Your Human and the other pests in your house

Greetings fellow felines. It’s been a while since I’ve done some lessons on training those moron humans of ours. That’s because I’ve been so busy training my humans and Sushi that I’ve barely been able to keep up with my busy napping schedule.

As you may know by now, The Can Opener around here has been trying to help Sushi the fat cat to lose weight. I don’t think it’s working. She still is the small mountain in the middle of the rug that they have to walk around. So, being the great trainer that I am, I’ve been busy trying to assist the human in training Lardbutt- How?

Well, when I encounter a mountain in the middle of the living room, I climb it. (Sushi doesn’t like that), and since it makes her mad, she sits up to swat me. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! It makes her sit up and move! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

GET UP AND MOVE!
KNOCK IT OFF, FLEA!

Sometimes that’s the only way to get her to exercise. The Human tries to play with her, but sometimes she will only play for a little bit, and the human is dealing with the small critters all day (most days) too.

THAT’S MORE LIKE IT!

Now, when you work so hard to help your human do something, you should be rewarded, right? That’s what treats (and playtime for you) are all about.

If your human is too busy to play, you can trick them into it, by head bunting them, “asking for pets” … when they start to pet you, sit there and purr for a few minutes, then gently wrap your paws around their hand and attack! Not too hard, though- if you do it too hard, they’ll get upset and stop playing. They’re a little bratty that way.

Sometimes you also have to give them some gentle hints. Like dragging your favorite toy to them and sitting there waiting for them to wake up and figure it out. This is what I had to do with my Can Opener this morning….

Now my morning is off to a good start. Playtime accomplished, training Sushi accomplished, and demanded treats given. Now I can go conquer the rest of the world!


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?
