Mornings with Sushi

I’m still waiting for my coffee human. Why are you on your third cup without serving me?

It’s all about me, human. Move it.

And please quit telling me I need to lose weight. I know what the vet said- but look at me – I’m not even 20 pounds yet! You and I both know that I exercise regularly- It’s hard exercise walking from the bedroom to the kitchen every morning, and it’s even harder to jump up on the couch for my grooming. And anyway, I’m sure I lost almost a whole pound just trying to get away from you and your nail clippers!

Besides- Look how huge Twilight looks! I think you should put HER on a diet!
Nice try, Sushi- that’s not going to happen!

Fine. I’ll just take a nap. Wake me for lunch!

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.

Thursday Thanks

You know, I’ve been thinking...

It’s been a while since I’ve counted my blessings. What about you?

The Can Opener says that everyone’s having a hard time no matter where she looks. And I overhear all the troubling reports that she hears (even without watching “the news”)- most troubling, especially is the shortage of baby formula- but also the looming ‘food shortages’ and all the other bad stuff.

I’ve also noticed that my human has been making a point of giving thanks and singing praise when she hears these reports. While it won’t change the things going on around us, what it does do, is change her perspective and lifts her above discouragement and and worry- and it keeps her blood pressure and stress under control too.

I’ve decided to start cultivating a thankful heart too. The Can Opener says a thankful heart isn’t automatic. You have to cultivate it. Like you would cultivate a garden. I don’t know exactly what “cultivate” means, but I get a feeling it means you practice being thankful. She says everyone has SOMETHING they can be thankful for.

Like breathing. No matter how bad things look, there are two things you can be thankful for if you’re reading this.

1.) You’re alive. That’s a definite plus. 2.) You’re breathing – (which is another plus)- 3.) you’re reading a blog post by the sweetest Siamese cat in America (whether you realize it or not).

See? Three reasons right there! Now let’s see if I can think of another reason;

There’s rain- POURING. While I hate the rain (it cramps my style)- the human loves it because it means less wildfires and it’s watering her garden and keeping my lovely back yard nice and lush and green.

But I’m most thankful that the Can Opener and Sushi and I have a place to call home so we don’t have to be out in the wet, cold weather. I’m thankful for my kitty treats, and food, and that the Can Opener is stocking up on our food- just in case.

I’m even thankful for Sushi…. (almost)- okay, I’m trying! I guess I am thankful for her, because she keeps the human distracted while I get into the butter.

The Can Opener is always brushing her and I get jealous. But she says she has to.

I’m also thankful for the big, furry pink blankie the grown critters got our Can Opener after the Backup Can Opener went to heaven in January. I melt into it and sleep so comfy- and I’m thankful that our human is doing better and isn’t overcome with grief. She’s getting counseling and is doing research on colon cancer- she has some plans she isn’t talking about just yet. Hopefully they’ll work out for her. Because then she’ll be even happier!

What are you thankful for?


Happy Mother’s Day!

Sushi and I want to wish all you Moms (and Grandmas, and Great Grandmas, and Great, Great Grandmas) …..
Get to the point Twilight- you’re keeping me AWAKE!

As I was trying to say, Happy Mother’s Day!

We know that Moms have the hardest job in the world and also the least appreciated job. Moms never get a day off, they don’t get sick pay, they don’t get holidays off, and if we had to pay them for sitting up late at night with sick children (or husbands)- or pay them to deal with temper tantrums, make healthy meals day after day, pay the bills and balance the budget, do all the laundry, (often while also juggling a job)- and de-crank cranky kids – Nobody could afford them!

Our human says Moms (and grandmas) deserve a lot more respect and honor than just one day a year can offer. We’re just cats- and our cat mamas don’t do half the stuff that those human moms do- so we just want to take a few minutes from our busy napping schedules to say thanks to all you Moms (and Grandmas) – out there who love your children, teach them to respect others, and to be responsible and kind.

You are making the difference for generations to come.

And with that- we want to start your day off with a smile! 😻

I made you breakfast, Mom.
Okay Mom, you can let go now.
You always make me feel better about myself!
I had a present for you Mom but I got hungry and it disappeared!

Sushi’s Musings

I’ve been hearing some unbelievable things from the Can Opener!

The Can Opener says some cats are naughty!

I just can’t believe cats ever misbehave, because I know I’m such an angel… no, really! I don’t ever fight with other cats at all- (I just smack Twilight when she insists on pawing at me to make me play when I don’t want to) – but that’s not naughty- that’s discipline! These young twerps these days just don’t like to take “no” for an answer!

I also notice Sheba’s naughtiness- she keeps her Mom up all night long and won’t let her sleep- and every time Twilight follows our human when she goes next door to visit her sister, that crazy Sheba hisses and fluffs up her tail and chases Twilight out of the house! Even when Sheba comes here, she tries to chase Twilight off her own cat tree! But Sheba won’t mess with me, because I’ll eat her. (Not misbehaving- I just have a great appetite)!

Psycho Sheba

I even hear that some cats eat houseplants – (a vegan CAT?), and some attack toes- (Twilight, are you listening)? And others poop outside the litterbox! I never do these things because I’m a good cat – but from what I hear, these things can really upset the humans and cause some problems. So I decided maybe I should pass on the video my Can Opener found while doing research to help her sister not to be so fur-rustrated with Sheba.

Check this out- maybe it’ll help you or someone you know who has a very mischievous cat!

Just remember you heard it from Sushi- the good cat!



Morning Coffee with Sushi

One of these days, human. One of these days!

That Lunatic Can Opener did it again-

I’m really getting tired of this- every time I so much as sneeze the Can Opener takes me to the vet. Just because I’m older. I protest, but she does it anyway. I’m not sick, but again the other day she took me in for a shot. She said I was “due for a distemper booster” – and in spite of all my objections, she whisked me away anyhow- and on top of that she had them trim my beloved claws!

I don’t know what a “distempter” booster is, but it must have worked- because it definitely boosted my TEMPER! And this morning I’m still sore from that shot and yet the Can Opener still insists on picking me up to groom me. I smacked her a zillion times with my tail this morning, but that didn’t stop her from grooming me anyway. And now I’m exhausted and need a nap.

Actually, I do feel better since she groomed me, but I’ll never let her know it!

Leave me alone Mom. Wake me up when you buy sardines.


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 … 😹

Morning Coffee with Sushi

Okay human, I can sit up by myself now. How about that coffee?

I don’t like Mondays. They make me get up.

I hate it when the Can Opener wakes me up on Mondays for no reason at all except that she thinks I’m cute. Of all the nerve! If it’s not that little Albino Flea swatting me on the head to make me play, it’s the Can Opener saying, “Come on, Sushi- It’s time to groom you!”

What the flea! I’m a CAT – I can groom myself- well, okay, except for my belly and my lower parts that I can’t really reach myself because I’m so beautifully upholstered… and that spot at the base of my tail that I can’t quite reach…but still. Those two are seriously disrupting my normal 18 hour a day sleep pattern. I’m going to disrupt something of theirs, too. Right after I get some coffee- extra cream, hold the coffee.

While I’m waiting for my coffee, I think I’d better read some comics so I can forget how irritated I am at those two lower life forms.

I feel better now. Unfortunately, it’s still Monday.


It’s Caturday!

Twilight can’t play with my wand toy, Mom. She can go catch a mouse. It’s MY Caturday, and I’ll pout if I want to.

How are you spending your Caturday?

I spent the first part of my Caturday keeping the Can Opener company while she had her coffee and prayer time. Now I’m trying to play with my favorite wand toy (with colorful bows on it)- and Twilight keeps trying to snag it. I swatted the fleas right off the little brat and told her to go catch a mouse or something, then I decided to park on it so she can’t pick it up and drag it away.

I think the Can Opener was shocked. That’s okay- that just means she’s fully awake now and Twilight knows not to mess with me. Now she’ll probably go dig up a flowerbed someplace.

While the Can Opener is outside enjoying the sunshine, I want to ask how your Caturday is going? I know some of you cats may be lonely and bored (which is a great excuse to nap)-

The attack of the sunbeam

Birthday parties were designed to torment cats

Or maybe you’re stuck in a house full of those tiny little noise-makers trying to be good and not scratch them to ribbons…

Or, maybe your sniffing the air looking for a neighborhood barbeque to inspect… (let me know if you find one- with GPS coordinates, please)… or

Why isn’t anyone grilling over here yet?
By the way human, don’t forget to order the pizza and leave the door open for me…

Maybe you’re making dinner plans for later… I’ll be right over to help you with that Door Dash. Happy Caturday!
