A New BOX! PARTYTIME!

It’s a NEW BOX – just for me! (Sushi get your own)!

A Sunny day, a new box, and the Can Opener!

When I heard the knock at the door, I darted under the bed, because it was a hard, loud knock- but a few seconds later after the Can Opener answered the door, I smelled something delicious coming from that big box. It was more of my favorite food! But then, when the bag came out, there were big sheets of pawsome brown paper inside (I LOVE CRINKLY PAPER)- And before the Can Opener walked away with the food, I pounced into the box to try it out!

I claimed it immediately! Then I hinted at the Can Opener to put some more tissue paper in it and the next thing I knew, I was having the time of my life!

Sushi, however, isn’t impressed with the box- (she has her own favorite)- So I had fun circling under the flaps of the box and swiping at my favorite wand toy (with all the pretty bows that I just can’t seem to untie- yet) … Give me time, and I’ll untie every one of those pretty bows!

Sushi on the other hand, was just watching the show. And bathing. And bathing. And BATHING…

And barking at the Can Opener to come brush and cuddle her.
Now I’m all played out. But I informed the human that the box STAYS.

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!

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 … 😹

Yesterday it was Spring.

I want to know who stole Spring?

Yesterday and the day before were sunny and warm- the neighbors were working in their yards and visiting (outside) again, and Sushi and I were enjoying the sun.

The doorstep was warm and cozy so Sushi was enjoying her ‘sauna.’ It felt really good on her side after those 4 shots at the Vet’s office…
I went next door where the Can Opener and her sister were talking about plans for the garden while Sheba kept chasing me away when I tried to go sit with them.

The lilac tree is blossoming, and cherry blossoms were flying through the air like snow. I love those- Just like with falling snow, I chase the blossoms and try to catch them when they fall. The Can Opener gets a kick out of watching me do that.

However, she didn’t get a kick out of my threatening the duck couple that came moseying into our yard…

* My goodness, what delicious, I mean, adorable little dinners, DUCKS! *

It was sunny and warm and perfect the last couple of days- and this morning I was all eager to go outside and find my little fillets- I mean, FRIENDS again (just to say hello, really!)- and then the Can Opener opened the door and all of a sudden, it’s Noah’s Ark all over again!

But the funny thing is, if ducks don’t mind water and rain, why didn’t they come back? I just can’t understand it!

But I’ll be waiting when it stops raining.

Sushi sees the Vet

I would laugh, but the Can Opener would take away my treats…

Our Can Opener can’t let me post right now because she has an appointment this morning- but she promised to let me post after that.

Unfortunately, I have to be nice to Sushi for a while- but believe me, I’ll make up for it later! Mol 😹

What was that about “being nice to me for a little while??” I can still sit on you, you know.

We’re Just Too Cute. Really!

Hey, Sushi- how about you write our post for tomorrow? I just want to lay here and watch for My Mama to come for dinner- That way the Can Opener has more time to prepare a feast for Mom and me
What? But I’m taking a nap!
Well, fine. I need a snack now anyway- and besides, SOMEBODY needs to write about our cuteness- (mine, specifically)!

“Once upon a time, there was a Siamese cat, and a beautiful, highly intelligent Tortie, (who was also very beautiful and smarter than the little flea Siamese, and their human liked the Tortie more than the little white flea uh- other cat,….and…”


Oh NO! MY STORY DISAPPEARED!

Twilight, why did you do that!!!! It’s all your fault! And now my paws are hurting and I don’t want to type all that again- and anyway, everybody knows I’m the cutest…


Oh forget it! I’ll do it later- I need another nap.
Sushi, you’re such an idiot! *Sighs*


Caturday’s Crazy Cats

It’s a NEW BOX! And It’s just my size!

Sushi and I have been busy

I’ve been talking to Sushi about ways to get the Can Opener to settle down and do something to relax for a while and today we found just the thing- so we want to share it with you too. We didn’t think there were any cats cuter or more entertaining than us, but after seeing this handsome Siamese and the other clown cats in this video, we just may be wrong.

Well, Sushi may be wrong- I’m never wrong. And if this is wrong, it’s Sushi’s fault. *Just sayin’.*

Watch and laugh- but the Siamese is going to be my new boyfriend- (I’m going to tell him-Just so he knows).


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sushi, The Can Opener and I want to say Have a GREAT Valentine’s Day!

Oh, for Heaven’s sake! Knock it off!
We love you all!
Okay, Sushi- we know you’re cute.

Hey! Enough with Snapchat!! Just say
“Happy Valentine’s Day!

Remember, LOVE, respect and tenderness – seasoned with grace and forgiveness-

is the whole point of Valentine’s Day.

We just want to know one thing…

Hey- Maybe our followers will know!!

Where can we buy a cheap pair of thumbs?

Sushi and I have decided to stop waiting on the Can Opener to feed us, and to take matters into our own paws. Our cousin, Serafina, gave us the idea. A couple of days ago, the Critters’ parents ran out of dry cat food and borrowed some of ours. The big Critter forgot to take it into the kitchen when she got home from being at our house, and Serafina decided she wasn’t going to wait for feeding time. See for yourself!

What a great idea!
No wonder Serafina always looks so happy!

Last week, the Can Opener had a mystery surprise delivered and she couldn’t figure out why she got it- she hadn’t ordered anything- but when we opened it, and we loved it! It turns out, it was from one of the grown Critters that came from out of town when the Backup Can Opener went to heaven… and we knew right away it was for us!

Our Can Opener was so happy! She smiled bigger than we’ve seen her smile in WEEKS!

And of course, Sushi tried to claim it for herselfbut that’s okay- as much as she sleeps, I don’t have to worry about it.

The Can Opener’s grown Critters are really sweet- when they came to help her care for the Backup Can Opener, they took turns caring for him at night so she could rest. They took her out to eat while their hubbies stayed with him because she was too stressed to even remember to eat. Now she’s worried about gaining weight! Anyway, they got her through it, and made things so much easier for her because she didn’t feel alone. And besides, she loves them and hadn’t seen them for a long time.

They brought gifts for her – and COFFEE- and new coffee mugs- and that made her smile too. And they sat around the hospital bed talking about their favorite memories of him. It’s amazing the difference a loving family makes at a time like that. They even thought about us kitties- and the Critters’ Dad, even said he would take over feeding Sushi and Me (and giving Sushi her medicine)- so Mom didn’t have to worry about forgetting to feed us.

But they’re gone back to their homes now- so Sushi and I aren’t playing games. We’re going to find ourselves some thumbs so we can open our own cans!


That’s my Can Opener!
