Archive for December, 2012

Let’s start with WordPress and issues with comments and the reader. For a couple of months now, there have been some bugs (not the yummy ones) with both:

  1.  When some of my regular readers try to comment, their comments are sometimes, although not always, sent to the “spam” or to the “to-be-approved” folders. There doesn’t seem to have any consistency (VBP) regarding who or when some of my furriends get sent to these folders instead of their comments being instantly published,
  2. The WordPress reader seems not to have been working (and not just for me) for some time now. Result is while I started following some new WordPress blogs, I can’t ask to receive notifications or see the new posts.

If you’re in one of these categories, and have noticed some problems I apologize on behalf of, yes, WordPress. Hopefully they are going to make things work better in 2013.

Nevertheless, I don’t want to complain too much as they make available for free a wonderful tool that enabled me to find new furriends all around the world. So thank you and keep up the good work, WordPress!

I thought I would show you some pictures of what we got from our humans, for Christmas. I’ll also do another post later with pictures of our Secret Paws lovely package – thanks to Marg and her furry family!

So, from the humans, we got a Pet Fusion Cat Lounge. We love it!

We also got a selection of toys from Nips & Bones, you know the ones that smell really good!

I got a silvervine fishie. I love my fishie. AND SILVERVINE!

Kitshka and I also each got one of the new Neko flies! Here you can see me play with one of the (silly) humans:

Milou got a catnip heart and a honeysuckle octopus:

Kitshka got, well, a neko fly (but she hasn’t played with it yet, she played with mine – hmpf) and a lizard wool toy:

So yes, basically, while Milou and I were getting a little high checking our sense of smell was working, Kitshka nomed and conquered a lizard. I’m so proud of my little sis!

See you tomorrow for the last day of 2012! And remember on January 1st, it is one of my best furriends ever’s birthday: it’s Sammy‘s birthday and he’s hosting a pawty!

Today, Mademoiselle Kitshka is 6 month old! Happy birthday, Kitshka!
Now that you’re almost not a kitten anymore, could you stop playing with my tail? What? No. Pfft. Okay.

Here are pictures of little K. striking a paws on (in?) one of our Christmas gifts!

~~~

Since today is Boxing Day, we didn’t want to miss it! We LOVE boxes! And that is part of the wonderfulness of Christmas: boxes left behind!
I know on this day we are supposed to give our humans a gift, but aren’t we, kitties, a year-long gift, really?

~~~

And last but not least, I would like to say thank you to Ann at Pawsitively Pets for making me a drummer kitty in her fabulous Anipal Tribute to the 12 Days of Christmas. Check it out, it is fantastic! Here’s little not-so-old me:

Thank you Ann!

Purrs to all!

From our family – Texas says ho!, Milou says ho!, Kitshka says ho! (the humans are cooking but they say best wishes!) – to yours:

a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Hiya furriends!

Yes, we are still alive. No, the world has not ended for us either. And yes, we intend to keep on blogging. My human is now on holidays for about 10 days so I expect her to take care of me and my blog!

I was a little mad at her (not too much because otherwise, Santa Paws might not come…) because the place she goes to work, the mysterious place called Manhattan, takes a lot of her time.

First, she told me that she had the opportunity to meet the lovely Ingrid King of the Conscious Cat last Wednesday. I was a little jealous! I love the Conscious Cat and Ruby & Allegra! I was glad that Ms. King autographed her latest book, Purrs of Wisdom, to my human and me though! Purrs to you! And to Ruby & Allegra!

Also, my human has been updating her own blog with a daily picture of the place called Manhattan at the time of Christmas. I couldn’t care less really. At first. But the other day, she called me and told me: “Texas, look, I’ve got some pictures for you!”

It seems that several decorations in the place called Manhattan were about animals! Yes, really! Look at the selection below and click to have a bigger view, and my comments!





But I’ve kept the best for the end, kitties! The French jewelry brand Cartier has 2 gigantic… kitties! Well, okay, probably panthers (putting a paw on your hand so you would check this link – no, you don’t need to know French). But kitties are just apartment panthers, aren’t we?




So now that I see that there are plenty of interesting things in the place called Manhattan, I think I would like to go. Yes Kitshka, you can come with me.

What do you think kitties?

Hiya! This is Milou blogging today!

Texas told me if I wanted to blog I could. He says he is too ashamed to blog before his human help him visit his furriends. He says he’s on a strike. Whatever that means.
Kitshka? Well, Kitshka is siding with Texas, of course!

So I take my chance to blog!

You noticed that Kitshka wasn’t too interested in her post-op (VBP) bunny.
I thought the bunny might feel a little alone, so I thought I would console him. Okay, plus he had nip in his pants. What? That’s true!

Come closer, little bunny...

Come closer, little bunny…

Here's a snuggle for you!

Here’s a snuggle for you!

What do you mean by "ouch"?

I think the bunny likes me. What do you think?

Just some things before we call it a day at our home.

=^.^= Some of my furriends’ humans asked for my human’s tiramisu buche recipe. Hmpf. Seriously? Okay, you can find it on her blog in English and in French. There is a picture of Kitshka that she has not posted on my blog. Double hmpf.
You’d better make me taste mascarpone next time, human!

=^.^= We want to wish our Jewish furriends a HAPPY HANUKKAH! There’s a Chanukah Blog Crawl starting today. Check it out!

=^.^= Kitshka has a new pink, catnip-packed, bunny friend. My human had got it especially for her, for after her operation.

But to say the truth, I think the bunny was more excited than Kitshka. She was more interested in what Milou was doing. She’s almost back to normal ;-)

Nite-Nite furriends!

First of all, thank you all very much for your purrs, thoughts and purrayers. We all really do appreciate so much!

The humans went to pick up Kitshka at the V-E-T about 1 hour ago and they say this is my little sister but I have to say she smells very different.
I first had my doubts and had to hiss and grow a little just in case, you know.

Of course, she looks like Kitshka and she acts like Kitshka: she’s all crazy and stuff, running after me and wanting to climb the furniture to get to my food. So I guess it’s really her. Her tummy has been shaved though and is all pink!

The funny part is my human running behind her saying “Non, non! Kitshka, non!”. MOL!

So what so you think, is it my little K?

She is a little tired now, so I am going to let her sleep while I’m visiting your bloggies. Thanks to all of you! We’ll be back tomorrow!

Kitshka will be 6 months the day after Christmas and the humans say it is time to get her “fixed.”
Huh?! I know Kitshka can be a little fury but not so much that you would want her “fixed.”

Then my human reminded me when they brought me to the V-E-T a long time ago, too. I sighed.

Kitshka is going to the V-E-T tomorrow. My human says she has to, although my human seems to be a little sad and nervous about it. Can I please ask that you send some purrs toward K. tomorrow?
She’ll be back home on Friday. My little K sister.

In the meantime, Kitshka is being herself alright. In fact, she is competing to become the naughtiest kitty of the year at our furriend Sammy’s place. Check it out, you can vote for the naughtiest kitty! Maybe Kitshka?

You see, my food is inaccessible to Milou because he has a special urinary diet, and so far was inaccessible to Kitshka too, because she, too, has her special (kitten) diet. She couldn’t reach my food.

Although she cannot jump to the top of this piece of furniture yet, she really wants to. Well, she wants to reach my food!

Clever little K quickly found out how to use the drawers’ ledge to climb her way to the top!

It took some time to my human to get the final close-ups, because she is quick! It also forced the humans to be extra creative and redecorate the drawers ;-)

What do you think? Naughty Kitshka? She’s not alone though! Go check at Sammy’s and vote!

What human? I was naughty too when I was a kitten? Meeeee?! Nah! That’s different: your wallpaper was ugly, I was helping you redecorate!

So I had to help my human wrap gifts to our winner RumblePurr as well as to our Secret Paws (shhhh!).

I love wrapping activities (especially when it involves ribbons, although my human is always holding the ribbon).

It took a little longer because my human picked up the wrong package at the post office. So she had to go back…
Kitshka and I did inspect the content of the package to make sure nothing was missing.

Okay human, you can send it... now!

Okay human, you can send it… now!

For a hint at our secret paws package, click here. Thanks to Truffle and Brulee for organizing Secret Paws!!

[there’s also a little something on its way to Mollie and Alfie]

Er, how about postponing it again? My human has this purrsonal (the nerve) thingie to do which includes reading stuff on paper. She says it is very impawtant for her (yeah right – can’t be more impawtant than me!) and that she has to do it. Plus, her head is going to explode if she spends 10 more minutes in front of her computer, she says.

So she just gave me 5 minutes to post and apologize to the furriends who awarded us. We will post er… we will not say anymore when but we will post about these awards at some point.

Lazy human. That’s what the song says about my human! Pfft. Here are the tocks of disrespect!

[The awards post will come later today – I have something to show you first]

Did you know that our furriends Star and Leo, from Celestial Kitties, and their human, are running a Christmas Fundraiser for Winnie’s Wish?

WWchristmas fundraiser banner

Star’s and Leo’s human, Andrea, is making (herself! – it’s not my human who could do that!) beautiful Christmas ornaments, some of which can even be purrsonalized with our names!

Here are ours:

Xmas-Ornaments_01

You can even ask for catnip inside. Since the humans won’t have a Christmas Tree (they are afraid we Kitshka will destroy it), the ornaments serve as toys for us. Yep. Ours have catnip.

For a donation of $15 you get three ornaments. Additional ornaments are $3 each.

Every dollar above postage and a very tiny materials amount goes to Winnie’s Wish! That’s about $12 a basic set! Winnie’s Wish is dedicated to rescuing abandoned or feral kitties and finding them great homes where they can be loved for the rest of their lives!

Go check the details here!

They were instantly successful with us. They are beautiful, smell sooooo good and make great pillows too!

Look at my reaction first!

Kitshka was first hesitant, but that didn’t last long!

Milou was a little shy because he’s not used to being featured on a blog…
[click on any picture to biggify]

Okay Milou. Thanks for this but the goal was to play with the ornament. Never mind.

As the nip guru, I of course had to try each and every ornament, to make sure the nip was extra great quality. It was.

What? I know it's Milou's!

What? I know it’s Milou’s!

Yes, I know it's Kitshka's!

Yes, I know it’s Kitshka’s!

I'm not stealing them I'm testing them!

I’m not stealing them I’m testing them!

Look!
