Full update coming soon

Thank you for not giving up on us.

Stage 4 Adrenocarcinoma

Our humans are in the fight of their lives- but God is so good to them in it all. They are strong and Sushi and I are making sure they stay that way.

Their strength is from The Lord-not their own. So that’s good- because those two Can Openers wouldn’t have a chance otherwise!

Our Can Opener has almost forgotten its Christmas! The family was called in and she hasn’t had even time to think since all this started.

She asked me and Sushi to update you all and to thank you for not giving up on our blog- all of you are also her source of strength. Sushi doesn’t do anything but sleep and hiss when we walk to close to her tail, so I decided I’d better do it.

She also said she hopes none of you are also going through anything like this- and that you all have a purrfect Christmas!

We’ll be back!! We love and appreciate every one of you! 🎄

Holiday Busy-ness!

No time to think!

There have been back-to-back birthdays to prepare for, (including her own this week)- Critters to teach, referee, and entertain, hubby not feeling well, Psycho Sheba (cat) next door trying to take over our house, Christmas gifts to make (and wrap)- baking, planning, and cleaning.

Then there’s Sushi and cute little me. The schedule has changed, routine has changed, and everything else on earth has changed. No wonder the Can Opener rarely takes time to play with me!

I know you’re busy, Human. But it’s raining and I’m BORED! There’s not even a Christmas tree to knock over!

BUT she did yesterday! She knows I love paper bags, and sparkly, shiny things and ribbons and bows and GOLF BALLS – and BOXES!

I had so much fun- I was sure that when I kicked the golfball to her on her yoga mat today as she was getting ready for her workout- (not yoga)- that she was going to tell me she couldn’t play with me yet. But she DIDN’T!

Psycho Sheba gets locked out of her house and then pushes her way in our door and hunts for our treats!
This is how I feel when the Critters are here all day.

And right when I start to think she has forgotten to take care of herself, she starts to work out. Great. I’d rather play. But she tells me that she can’t afford to not work out with all the stress in her life and I try my best to give her the look to make her feel guilty….

And that reminds me of how special she makes me feel and how lucky I am not to be a stray anymore.

Maybe I’ll stop making her feel guilty… for now.

She gets mad at our human when she’s not allowed to eat our treats and growls and hisses at her- then gets escorted out.
The Can Opener has been playing games with the tiny Critter too.

Sometimes I think our Human is so busy taking care of everyone else that she forgets to take care of herself too.

Then I remember the new bed she bought me that I still haven’t used. Because I like hers best.

It’s that time of year again…

Time to help these poor humans get the Christmas tree set up JUST RIGHT!

People don’t realize how hard we cats have to work to “help” the humans get it right! No matter what we do to correct their mistakes they always come around and undo our contributions.



Twilight’s Thursday Therapy

I’m so glad you’re home Mom. Sushi wouldn’t play with me while you were gone. She didn’t play with anybody else either. Not even that big black spider.
What do you mean “What spider?” The one right there on the couch next to you….
Don’t worry! I got him! He’s a tasty snack!

So, Let me get this straight, Human….

Are you telling me that you spent the last 4 DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS WITH ABBY AND SERAFINA??

How COULD YOU?


Oh, come on, Twilight. Give her a breakShe came back and spoiled us with a NEW BED AND TOYS!
I can’t let her see me in that! Besides…. I like hers better.
I’ll deal with you later. Go away.

Sunday Smiles & Coffee

What? I don’t have anything in here. It’s just a bag….

No, you can’t have my pink thingie. It’s my favorite toy!

Good Morning! It’s time to get some coffee & get ready for some smiles!

There’s been so much happening – today is a big day for the big Critter- it’s her birthday! So our human has been busy getting things done for a pawsome surprise. Meanwhile, I’ll just sneak up on Sushi while she’s sleeping and have some fun while you look at some things guaranteed to start your day off with a smile!

Twilight’s Tuesday Musings

I can actually be nice to Sushi sometimes. (Without pouncing on her afterward).

A little Comfort for you

Our Can Opener feeling better, but the Back-up Can Opener is still not feeling well, so she spent extra time praying last night. I like it when she does that, because she tends to pace back and forth sometimes and I like to hang over her shoulder and purr as she holds me and prays. When she’s done she’s more peaceful and I’m ready for a nap.

She knows things are hard for everyone right now, not just him and her. So this morning is all about comfort.

Did you know that we cats are great for stress relief? Yep. And that’s not just coming from me. Even doctors agree.

Here’s a few random facts for you about the benefits of having a pet – (cats, specifically, because- well, I’M A CAT).



This is the short version- there are many more benefits to having a cat.


We are great companions and reduce loneliness- and petting a cat helps our owners relax and even reduces blood pressure! Studies also have shown we reduce the chances of heart disease, and strokes, help your immune system(s), and our purrs even help heal your bones!

And if that’s not enough, we also have been shown to help autistic children, and to help prevent ashtma (in children) and improve your mood.

I could go on- but you might want to read it for yourself here.

Or, you could just consult your cat. If you don’t have a cat, I think you should get one- immediately if not sooner.

Siamese like me are a great choice- we love to play – and talk.

She’ll also keep the sheets down on your bed. Trust me.
We even greet you with a smile..
A tortoiseshell like Sushi will talk to you- CONSTANTLY. And guard the remote.

And if you’re blessed with TWO cats, you’ll always have live entertainment.

Sushi’s Sunday Musings

Yesterday the Can Opener tried to clip my claws. She got clipped.

I’m keeping my claws, Human. Trust me.

That psychotic albino flea gets bored and keeps pretending to snuggle up with me and groom me only to turn around and SWAT the fleas right off me trying to make me play. I’m telling you, one of these days….I’m going to swat her clear to the moon!

She’s got it coming… I can’t even enjoy a nice, long, nap on a rainy day without her pouncing on me. And now the Can Opener is insisting on trimming my claws. She got two done before I decided it wasn’t going to happen- not in this lifetime!

Oh, come on, Sushi- I’m not THAT bad….
Okay, well, maybe sometimes- but I can’t help it if it‘s raining and I get bored!

Okay, fine. Then I’ll start attacking the Can Opener so she’ll play with me. Geez! You sure have an attitude!

I know how to get Mom’s attention and make her play with me- I’ll get on her computer!
Yes – do that. JUST LET ME SLEEP!
