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!

A lazy Day

I’m just going to lay here and be cute all day.

Yesterday was a busy day for my Can Opener. The critters were here. 🙀

The big one was complaining a lot about random things, the tiny one was busy trying to see how many times she could walk across the back of the couch and jump down to the floor before making a hole in the floor, Sheba (the psycho next door )-kept popping in to see if our human had opened a can of tuna yet, Twilight kept nipping at the human’s feet to get her to play, and I threw up a few times- just to make sure the human didn’t forget I’m here.

It worked beautifully!

Today, however, I’m going to just rest and be cute- just to see if I can outdo myself. After all, there’s a lot to compete with around here for attention.

But don’t worry- I already left a nice surprise hairball in the kitchen floor for the Can Opener. That way she starts the day off knowing she’s loved. It’s important to show your loved ones you care.

Caturday Snuggles


I needed the Can Opener to go to sleep so I could track down the new bag of treats she’s been hiding from Twilight and me. So I decided to snuggle up with her when the Tiny One took her nap, and conveniently “nap” on her lap until she fell asleep.

But the problem is, the Can Opener never takes a nap. She reads, or plays games or just talks with someone while the Tiny One sleeps- only this time, luckily, she did fall asleep because the night before she had tossed and turned all night.

I thought it would be a breeze to just sneak off while they slept and find my delicious bag of treats. Unfortunately, I fell asleep for real. By the time I woke up to begin my treat hunt, the Can Opener was already trying to wake up the little One.

So, I didn’t have the chance I thought I would to track down the treat bag. I guess next time I’ll have to try harder to just look asleep. But I did get a lot of love and snuggles and my belly rubbed a lot.

Twilight says she is going to teach me her tricks- I don’t know what she does differently, but she sure knows how to get what she wants every time. So, I guess after she teaches me her tricks I’ll try again. Meanwhile, I’ll settle for the best tummy rubs I’ve ever had in all my 9 lives!



Now, Back to my Michevious (Christmas) Plans…

This guy is starting to pop up everywhere.
Oh yay. It’s Santa’s spy again.
Let’s see now…. Where do I start?


19 Days til Christmas!

Time for me to start dropping my Christmas gift hints a little harder. The Can Opener appears to be totally clueless as to my (and Sushi’s) Christmas wish list. Of course, she is only human, which is a huge drawback- but even she has to have a brain in there somewhere… The question is, how to get through that head of hers?

What Sushi wants…

I asked Sushi what she wants for Christmas, and all she said was “a nap.” You know, I know she’s part of the family and all, but good grief. No imagination at ALL.

So, I told her what I want and she said I should write a list for the Can Opener and leave it someplace where she can’t miss it. Like the mirror. Or the refrigerator. Or better yet, taped to her face.

But I think she’s forgetting I’m a CAT- writing and taping is a little hard for my paws. Maybe I should have a talk with that creepy little elf that keeps popping up. If he’s going to be hanging around so much, I may as well put him to work.

I think I’ll make a list and leave it for him to take to Santa.

I sure hope he can read.

I’ll probably leave him some treats too- in case he needs a little “motivation.” Maybe all those cookies kids leave for Santa is why he keeps coming back every year. If all I had to do for treats was drop down a chimney in random houses once a year, I’d probably do it too. That is, if there’s no fire in the chimney! MOL!

No more rain, Please Mr. Weatherman!

Caturday at last!

The best part of waking up ISN’T Folgers in my cup-

Finally a little sunshine after days of freezing cold RAIN!

As soon as Sushi detects life in the kitchen, she’ll finally get up off my front paws so I can move, (assuming I can still walk)- and then I’m heading outside to find some mice!

It’s been a while since I’ve treated the Can Opener to breakfast in bed!

She had a rough day yesterday, with the little tiny critter having her heart set on a tea party and then being able to paint with the Can Opener…

But after the washing machine poured water all over the kitchen floor, that ruined their plans, and after that there was no satisfying the little rascal since the Can Opener had Lake Eerie pay an unexpected visit in her kitchen and had to spend the next couple of hours undoing the damage while trying to keep the critter from jumping in the BIG PUDDLE! Mol! 😹


Uh oh … here comes the critter!!

I had decided to play it cool and stay out of the lake in the kitchen so I went to the nice leather desk chair to stay dry until somebody decided the world wasn’t really ending- but then the tiny critter remembered the chair SPINS!! 🙀

Time to go- breakfast Can wait!!
