Kitshka Friday: Zzzzzzzz

I know, I know. I was supposed to post about the remaining awards yesterday, but I didn’t. I will tomorrow, promise (I’ve got my paw on my human today!).

I thought it’s been a while since we had a Kitshka Friday, so there you go!

I’m not sure if I want to take a bath or have a nap…

I think I need a nap

I’m not sure…

What?

You know what?

I’m gonna rest my head just for a little while and think about it…

Zzzzzzz…

We all know that humans can make some strange food choices. While some good humans would prepare yummy food like the Greenies humans, some humans eat citrus and oranges and these smelly stuff that have no interest. My human also loves chocolate. Chocolate! But we kitties cannot eat chocolate!

Granted, my human did try and bake for us. Sometimes it was good. Sometimes it was so-so.

But sometimes, when humans bake for themselves, it’s plain meh!

The past weekend, my human decided to bake what she calls a Tiramisu Buche. We didn’t know what it was so we decided to investigate.

Well, guess what? Not only did we not taste what mascarpone was – although it did look like something quite good – but she sprinkled the buche with… yes, you guessed it! Some kind of chocolate powder! Oh, the humanity!

I mean, look at this!! Doesn’t it look plain meh?

So, when she tried to take a picture of us from above, well, she got what she deserved:

My human has been postponing this post for too long now: the thank yous to furriends for awards and other nice attentions.

~~~

I am very very VERY late in thanking our furriends Mollie and Alfie for creating a great Halloween costume for me. I know Halloween is over but I still want to thank my furriends and show you what they did:

They are currently dressing furriends for Christmas everyday, so go check their site!

~~~

Now for the awards… I am even more late in accepting them so I hope you won’t be too mad at me. I will bend the rules just a little. I will answer the questions for each award (or let Kitshka or Milou answer) but I will nominate 15 fellow bloggers for all the awards and they can pick and choose some or all of them.

1. For the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, I have to thank Princess Zena as well as Mollie & Alfie, and Sammy, and Angel’s Whisper, and Cats & Co. Thank you!

For this award, I must finish the sentence ”A Great reader is…”

A great reader is a reader who cares about reading what he or she is actually reading and focuses on the reading
~~~

2. For the Shine On Award, I have to thank Minnie Mouse at Hot Rod Cowgirl. Thank you!

For this award, I have to share 7 things about myself and answer some questions. I’ll let Kitshka answer for herself.

#1 Any food that I can get my paw on will be eaten, even if it’s Texas’ or Milou’s food
#2 I growl when Milou is trying to taste my food
#3 The female human has plenty of nicknames for me, the most frequent being “Petite Belle”
#4 I like to be petted by the female human when I eat
#5 I like to explore the world on the male human’s shoulder
#6 I like to read bloggies with Texas. Although I am often distracted, never am I when I read Quill’s bloggie!
#7 I enjoy watching TV

The questions to answer (still by Kitshka):

– What is my favorite color?
Just about any
– What is my favorite Non-Alcoholic drink?
Tuna juice!
– What is my favorite animal?
Humans?
– Do I prefer Facebook or Twitter?
What’s that?
– What is my favorite number?
3 (the number of Greenies I usually get by combining mine and Milou’s)
– What is my favorite flower?
What’s that?
– What is my passion?
Running around like crazy!

~~~

3. For the Beautiful Blogger Award, I have to thank bodhisattvaintraining. Thank you!

I already have this award so I won’t go through the acceptance again. But thank you so much for thinking of me!

~~~

4. For the Seven Things About Me Award, I have to thank Princess Zena, and Savannah, and Binky. Thank you!

Milou? 7 things about you? No need to hiss at me! Pfft

#1 I snore when I sleep
#2 I am starting to play a little bit with Kitshka
#3 I like my human very much, I like to snuggle on his lap
#4 I like to eat a lot
#5 I made myself a new bed with my human’s wife’s backpack
#6 I steal food from Kitshka’s bowl when the humans aren’t around (which is not often enough!)
#7 I still miss Grouik

~~~

5. For the Super Sweet Blogging Award, I also have to thank Binky Thank you!

I already have this award so I won’t go through the acceptance again. But thank you so much for thinking of me!

~~~

I have two other special awards that I will share separately, on Thursday (the Blog of the Year Award – Thank you Zena! – and a special award by my furriend Bowie, that I want to acknowledge).
I hope I didn’t forget anyone. If I did, meow in the comments and I will have my human give me a treat for her mistake!

~~~

In the meantime, here are our nominees. It is difficult to choose just 15, so I will try to nominate new furriends or furriends I have not nominated before (Yes Kitshka, we will nominate Quill! Stop pulling my tail now!!!).
You can pick all of the awards above, or just the one you don’t have or the ones you want. Or none if you’re not into awards, I understand =^.^=

1. Quill at Housecat Confidential
2. Dayak at Les aventures de Dayak
3. Da Tabbies at Trout Towne
4. Star and Leo at Celestial Kitties
5. Bailey at Bailey Boat Cat
6. Mollie and Alfie at Mollie and Alfie
7. Archie, Oscar and Henry at My Three Moggies
8. Esme and all her family at Critters in the Cottage
9. Katie Isabella at Katie Isabella
10. Spitty at Spitty Speaks
11. Nellie at Cat from Hell
12. Captain and Billy at Wheezyrider
13. Selina at One Eye on the Future
14. Janis at Catonauts
15. Dash Kitten at Dash Kitten

Now my dear furriends, if you will excuse me, I need a nap.

My Three Moggies Update

It seems like their site has crashed and is for now inaccessible :-(

Hope our furriends will be back online soon and that they have not lost everything like they said they might have in the comments of my previous post.

Gotta go backup my blog, methinks.

Purrs to Archie, Oscar and Henry and their humans!

UPDATE ON THE UPDATE: They are back with wordpress.com for now

Hiya furriends,

A quick post to direct you to My Three Moggies’ new bloggie: click here!

Were you already following them but have stopped receiving notifications? That’s because they have a brand new, beautiful blog! But they lost their subscribers along the way :-/
So please, if you were already visiting them but haven’t for a while because you didn’t get their notifications, visit them today and subscribe again.

If you had not been visiting them before, go say hiya to Oscar, Archie and Henry. I bet you will love them!

More later, furriends!

A great Sunday from us to you =^.^=

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks:
=^.^= to our humans, when they deserve it
=^.^= to the humans who produce the Greenies
=^.^= to our furriends for visiting our bloggies and for writing bloggies, too

It is also a time when humans give thanks (that’s when we have to be careful because they tend to give extra cuddles and kisses).

And of course, it is a time to relax with our family…

…and to enjoy a lavish (VBP) meal!



From our family to yours: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Finally here is the result of our little contest launched on Sunday!

You had to tell me what you were seeing on the picture. I asked you to tell me what was going on, who you were seeing, what you were seeing.

The correct answer was Kitshka’s paw trying to reach for a Greenie (treat was a fine answer). When my human did the Halloween pictures, she had to lock Kitshka in the humans’ bedroom if she hoped to take a pic of me getting to the Greenies in the plastic pumpkin. In the process, a Greenie fell on the floor and Kitshka was furiously trying to get to it from under the door. No food is safe when Kitshka is around!

So, my human put all the names of furriends who said in the comment that it was Kitshka’s paw trying to reach for a treat and then… then she tried to have us draw a winner. (keep reading to have the name of the winner)

Are these treats?

Nope. Then, not interested.

Kitshka to the rescue…

Are these treats?

Kitshka: These aren’t treats!
Texas: I’m outta here!

Then, the human had the brightest idea in years: she put Greenies inside the box with all the names, in the hope that we would draw a name while trying to get a Greenie. But we’re smarter than that. We just ate the Greenies.


(Milou, whose paws you can see on this last picture, wasn’t quick enough to get a Greenie from the box)

So, in a last effort, my human just put all the papers on the floor hoping Kitshka would choose one. And she did!

And the winner is…

Rumblepurr!!!

Congratulations to my furriend! Wait for an email from me coming your way.

Thank you all for pawticipating! I will have another contest next month with something from France to win. Stay tuned.

Purrs to y’all!

I am taking a break from the usual “Mondays are for memories” because we just feel like doing nothing today.

You still have until midnight today to play to our little game. We’ve seen many good answers already! Someone is going to be treated to a little package soon =^.^=

In the meantime, we’ll just do what we do best!

Hiya Furriends!

I am glad because yesterday my human’s Mom arrived to stay with us for Thanksgiving. She’s coming from France!
I like her very much: she used to be my cat sitter in France and I spent some time with her. Also she was easier to train than my human ;-)

On top of that, my American furriends all know next week is Thanksgiving. In order to say thank you to all my readers, I will have one game with a secret prize (today) and one giveaway next month!
I really enjoy blogging and I hope you enjoy reading about little not-so-old me and my fur family! I know I like to read your reactions in the comments!
Also I won some prizes on furriends’ bloggies so I want to reciprocate (VBP). And soon it will be Christmas!

So, what about today’s game?

Below is a picture of something going on at our home recently (three weeks ago). But what is going on exactly? That’s what you have to tell me in the comments! I need to know: What are you seeing? Who are you seeing? What’s going on?

You have until tomorrow, Monday 19, 2012, 11.59 pm EST to comment. I won’t answer comments or give any details. Once time is over, I will take all the good answers and draw a winner randomly.

What’s the prize? Well, since my readership (how classy does that sound?) extends to more than just kitties, I will adapt the prize according to the winner and his fur family. It will still be a surprise but my human will send something we think you will like! Also, as long as you live on Planet Earth, you can play! [Sorry Martians, but my human can’t afford sending stuff to other planets]

So are you ready? Below is the picture. I hope you have fun!

Good luck!
[Yes, the image is a little blurry but that adds to the fun! You can biggify it by clicking on it!]

I had already mentioned how Milou mastered the art of photobombing here and here and here.

Kitshka is quickly learning too:

I had already prepared my post when I read this post at the Conscious Cat. The post was about humans building cat walls for their kitties. I thought that was very nice of them. Sometimes we kitties build our own stuff too!

I made myself a brand new castle and I love it! What do you think about it?

Guess who wanted to join me? (Hint, she’s on the first pics)
Yes! Kitshka!

Thankfully, she understood that everyone should have their own castle… or box. What Kitshka? Why, no, your box isn’t too small for you! Kids these days, they never get enough!

Hiya furriends!

Another 1+ week without being able to blog or read your bloggies… I know my human was trying her best, but since she’s not a kitty, her best just wasn’t enough. Sigh. Sorry.

I have many awards to acknowledge and share, and many furriends to thank. I will be doing this in the days to come, probably one at a time.

In the meantime, here are some warming (I hope!) pictures for those who are in cold areas or (still :-/) without electricity (one of my humans’ friends in CT just got his electricity and Internet back and we know some still haven’t).

[My human is saying that it is stupid since they can’t see the pics if they don’t have electricity. Duh! I know, human! But I’m sending warm thoughts and purrs!]

After this very pointless, human interruption, here are the pics. Yeah, I didn’t looked pleased on the pics because Kitshka and I were having the bestest of naps and my human woke us up with her awwwwwwwws! Do humans and interrupting kitties go together, you think?

Warm purrs to y’all!

This quote, by a famous French author, illustrates the innocence and peace of us kitties, according to my human (French and original version at the end of the post). What do you think?

Reading my furriends’ bloggies, I saw that today many of them were pawticipating in a special blog blast titled Dona Nobis Pacem: Grant us Peace.
You can find more details at BlogBlast4Peace as well as on Mimi Lenox’s website.

This is our first time pawticipating in this event and we wanted to do something special. Of course, us kitties know the secret to peace and happiness (and many other things, some we will not share!). So I wanted to share part of this secret with you. How Kitshka and I find peace. Are you ready?

*** We wish you all
Peace in your home
As well as in your world
And we send lots of purrs
to help you on the way! ***

Humans say we are creatures of habits. But they are creatures of predictability!

They had prepared some treats for Halloween to give to kids. I don’t know whether that was because of Sandy (I heard the humans say 90% of our town had lost power! Talk about a Ceiling Cat-blessed home we have!) but no kid came. Not a single one. My human was kind of sad… not that she would have to eat the candy herself, but that possibly kids couldn’t have as much fun this year.

So a huge plastic pumpkin, 3 or 4 times the size of Milou’s heads, and full of human treats, was still waiting next to the door when my human suddenly, yesterday evening, just before going to sleep, had the most stupid idea ever. She emptied the plastic pumpkin and, guess what?

Yep. She put Greenies in the plastic pumpkin.

Of course Milou fell for it.

So did Kitshka (with Milou waiting in line for a second round).

Little not-so-old me couldn’t be bothered to enter my head in the pumpkin for a couple of Greenies so that my human could take a picture. I cannot be bought for a couple of Greenies! Now if she had put fresh salmon in there… No, no, no! I get my Greenies on my terms!

Furriends: I am back to reading your bloggies. No seriously. So I’ll see you in a short while!
