Stop calling me, human. I don't feel like moving.

When the humans are in the kitchen, I like to be not too far from them…

Sometimes, little yummy noms fall on the floor and I catch them help the humans clean up.

Sometimes, the humans want me to clean their fingers too. I like to clean their fingers.

But the best moment in the kitchen is in the morning…

That’s when the humans get the cream cheese out of that white and cold closet behind me… Mmmmh… cream cheese…

Is it the white closet they’ve just opened?!?

[Still not sure what VBP is? Check here.]

Posts on my bloggie have been sparse (VBP) again; visiting my furriends’ bloggies has been barely possible. Truth is some things happened in the past 2 weeks that I want to tell you about.

About two weeks ago, on a Saturday morning, I regurgitated (VBP) my food twice or thrice (VBP). My human thought I might have caught a bug (!) or something and rushed me to the vet. Truth is my stomach and I were upset because an evil suitcase had appeared.

Anyway, the visit to the vet was quite a thing. The nice vet had a new assistant which I decided I didn’t like (remember there was the suitcase in my human’s bedroom). So I was not really nice. But I had nothing to do there! I wanted to go home and I wanted the suitcase to disappear!

The vet gave me some fluids and sent me home asking the humans… kitties, hold on to your scratching post… asking the humans not to give me food for 24 hours! 24 HOURS!! I thought I would starve! And I almost did.

The day after, on Sunday, the human gave me my first food in 24 hours of forced starvation… and she took her suitcase and left for 3 days to sunny California, the home of some of my furriends (Sparkle, Savvy, Spitty…) without asking if I wanted to come or send a message for them.

The human: Texas, I went there for work, I was in a delimited area in south Los Angeles, and I didn’t have much time even for myself!

Don’t bother reading the human’s excuses. Excuses, always excuses.

Then she came back on Wednesday morning, very early. I was very happy! Not an hour passed, she caught me, put me in my carrier and took me to a photo shoot!

The human: Texas, it was the Westchester Magazine photo shoot, remember? You asked your furriends to vote for you, and they did, and you were selected.
Texas: And because you have no time for me, I wasn’t yet able to tell them!
The human: We are telling them now.
Texas: Pfft. Back of disrespect. AND airplane ears (I think you like airplanes, don’t you?).

Anyway, it was kind of a dark place with some very bright spots, with HUGE lamps. It was kind of scary. And there were TWO pawpawrazzi! It lasted about 10 hours [The human: less than one actually], and there were dozens of dogs to force me to comply [The human: the next animal to be photographed was a dog, and arrived about 10 minutes before we left].

The human: Am I complaining that they took a picture of the two of us while I was just “fresh” out of the plane, which means not really ready for a photo shoot?
Texas: Who cares? I’m the star, am I not?
The human: You did behave like a little star, yes ;-) I couldn’t even take pictures of the photo shoot to show your furriends, because I had to run after you all the time. Not to mention the photograph had to take pics of you lying on the floor because you were hiding under the couch!
Texas: Hmpf.

I want to seize (VBP) this opportunity to thank again all my furriends who voted for me in the Westchester Magazine Pet of the Year Contest. I am one of the ten pets of the year and I will be featured in the March or April issue! More on this as soon as I have more news.

Here are last week’s pawticipants. As always, click on the bluey badge at the bottom of this post to enter your link for this week. And don’t forget to grab the badge! Thanks to everyone!

We had three links this past week from bloggies that entered their URL but did not pawticipate (we could not find any reference to VBP in any post). It would be unfair to pawticipants to post the links of bloggers who do not do a VBP post. So, if you don’t see the link to your blog, yet have entered one, you can post the link to your VBP post in the comments. If we have missed it, we will add it. Thank you for your furry understanding =^.^=
If you have any question regarding VBP, you can check the simple rules here and don’t hesitate to leave your questions in the comments!

Today I conclude my thanks for the great prezzies we received the past year thanks to Zee & Zoey (check here and here).

We received a Lickety Stick, Salmon flavor. Of course, Milou and Kitshka loved it! They wouldn’t stop! Me? Hmmm, I have to say, not really. But Milou and Kitshka had no problem making up for me!

On the other hand, we all liked the World’s Best Cat Litter, which also came with a scooper and… a bag!!! A BAG!!!

Bags. The bestest human invention. After boxes.

Read Full Post »

Yesterday, I was reading Daisy’s post at PetMeds Blog and I learned that today is National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day!

Needless to say, all three of us – Milou, Kitshka, and I – have questions for our humans! So there you go!

Milou

How come I cannot eat Texas’ and Kitshka’s yummiest food?
Because it makes you seriously sick, then I have to get you to the V-E-T and he performs outrageous things on your business end to fix you.

Why are you feeding me only 18 times a day when I’m hungry 28 times?
Because I actually have to work so I can afford your diet food among others, and get a little sleep (I don’t require 18h a day but still).

I’m hungry. Can I have food now?
You had food 10 minutes ago!



Kitshka

Can the birdies outside be invited inside the house?
No sweetie, they are meant to live outside. Inside, they could not fly.

How come I cannot eat Texas’ and Milou’s yummiest food?
Because you have your special kitten food, so that you can healthily grow into a beautiful Ladycat. Texas is currently on diet food* and Milou has a special urinary diet.

Why don’t you let the cream cheese on the table, ever?
I don’t want it to turn sour.**



Me, Texas

Why don’t you eat fresh shrimps more often?
Because we don’t want to eat shrimps everyday.

Why can’t we keep all the boxes you receive?
I know you love boxes, Texas. And there will always be boxes for you to play with. We cannot have boxes everywhere though. We, humans, live here too, you know (not in boxes though).

How come I cannot eat Milou’s yummiest food?
Because Milou has a special urinary diet, he cannot eat*** anything else, and this type of food is very high in calories.

* Texas: Human! You didn’t have to tell!
** Kitshka: Yeah, right. Just because I am a kitten doesn’t mean I am stupid. You just don’t want to share!
*** Milou: Speaking of eating…

Hiya Furriends,

I hope you all had a great weekend, wherever you are!

First, I want you to know that something compelling (VBP) is coming up, so stay tuned!

~~~~~

If you haven’t read my post about Architects for Animals, you might want to check it here.

Interestingly (VBP), I recently read about an initiative that has some relation to this project. I read it at a French furriends’ bloggie Deux Chats dans ma Cuisine (Two Cats in my Kitchen) and I thought you might be interested in knowing about it and… helping. Don’t worry it is as easy as cleaning your toesies.

The project is called SOS Couvertures (Blanket SOS) and here is what it is about:

Animal shelters’ cages are located outside, so everytime temperature falls, animals are very much exposed to cold weather. Shelters then need blankets to help warm the animals.
SOS Couvertures’ goal is to help finance these blankets. Everytime someone clicks on the [clic] button (on the left) our sponsors finance 2 square centimeters (0.002 square feet) of blanket. Thank you everyone for your help.

That’s right. All you have to do is click on the “clic” button. You can do this once every 8 hours. Easy as cleaning your toesies!
You can see pictures of some delivered blankets here.

Can you click? It will benefit French shelters, but everyone can click.

~~~~~

And now, I offer you pictures of Kitshka in front of delicious noms (SHRIMPS!!!) to help you start your week well.

Can I have some? Can I have some??

Can I have some? Can I have some??

OMC! The human is putting one into bits for us! OMC!

OMC! The human is putting one into bits for us! OMC!

Should I stay or should I go now?

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:

You can click on each picture to biggify them or use the slideshow below by clicking on any of the pics!

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!

My silly human forgot about the following video when I first posted about me as a kitten playing with fruits.

Silly human.

Hope you like the video.

When I arrived at my furever home as a kitten, I was amazed at all the toys I could find in my human’s (soon to be mine) home.

One thing I found very exciting and funny was fruits that were around. Some could roll! Of course, it soon became forbidden (my human pretended that some fruits could be dangerous) – as was jumping and walking on the table to get to them. But I couldn’t care less.

Until the fruits disappeared from my sight. Hmph.

What was your favorite toy as a kitten?

Hiya everyone!

Today is a holiday here in the U.S. It is Labor Day. So my human will be working for me, since it’s LABOR Day. Heh. Happy Labor Day, human. She’s happy with that apparently =^.^=

Here is a video of when I ate my first can of wet food. It was very yummy and I wasn’t about to let Milou eat it for me. Although my human bought even better food since then, like with entire pieces of tuna or chicken. But I digress.
I was almost 4 months at the time. It was in my human’s boyfriend’s tiny apartment in Paris.

It’s a bit long but Milou is patient and also, if you wait til the end, you can see that even Grouik had a hard time having a bit of my leftovers.

Enjoy Monday!

Hiya my furriends, furry and human furriends alike!

I cannot believe it’s been a year since I first started blogging here! WoW!

I want to thank all of you who have visited my blog, liked posts and/or commented. It’s been quite a year and I am so glad I found so many furriends along the way.

I don’t want to single out just a couple of you but… I remember that among my very earliest followers (apart from family – Hiya Janina!) were the beautiful Sparkle, the adorable Catpurrology, Sweet Savannah and my good furriend Sammy! I’m not sure how I found you all or how you found me but I’m glad to know you! Then most of my furriends readers followed. I love you all so much!

To all my readers I send purrs today to thank you for coming and visiting my blog.

There are a couple of my earliest readers who didn’t have blogs that I do not see anymore. I hope you are doing fine too.

So, to celebrate, I was so so glad to discover that my human had bought me two gifts: a new toy, filled with catnip (a great toy – they claim it has the best catnip of the universe but unless they buy it from my furriends at the Katnip Lounge, it cannot be the best of the universe, sorry) and new Greenies treats (the SmartBites ones!) and they are yummy!
You think I should get my human something (because of the typing you know)? Well, since I’m doing all the cleaning on the little brat sister, I might be able to get her a fur ball for tonight =^.^=

Below are some pics and a video (thanks to my human’s husband!) of me enjoying my new toy and my first blog anniversary! Please come join me and have fun!

If you have a minute, I’d love to hear in the comments about a particular post you may have enjoyed and remembered!

THANK YOU ALL! I hope I’m starting another great year and I hope to spend it with y’all =^.^=

Purrs

Today is Kitshka’s birthday. She is two months old. It is her first birthday at our home. Her home =^.^=

Despite the fact that she has already stolen all of our toys, my human bought her a new one for her first birthday with us, a Kong Cozie Kickeroo. It appears to be some kind of blue raccoon.
The label on the toy says “Your cat will love you for it.” Ahah! My human is trying to buy my little sister’s love! Well, here she is, playing with it during… about 1 minute and 18 seconds. Kids.

Happy Birthday Kitshka! Don’t forget tonight you’ll have a little special treat too. Well, that’s usually what my human is doing for me ;-)

Hiya everyone! Hiya my furriends from Katnip Lounge!

Recently, I was the lucky winner of some fresh catnip harvested by my furriends’ Mom from the Katnip Lounge. Thank you SO VERY MUCH my furriends!!! It is the BEST CATNIP EVER!

I received it yesterday!! WOOHOO!! Can you tell I have tasted this delicious catnip already? CaNyOUTeLl REALLY?

I was a bit concerned because our mailman was on vacations and I feared he had run away with it. But thank Ceiling Cat no!

My human could only smell it when she opened the envelope (which was addressed to ME by the way, human!). Humans and their poor, inefficient noses. I could smell it the envelope closed. Can you tell?

My precious…

I got a little cute note too, and read it. Yep I read it! (Smelled goooooooood)

Then – horror! – my human tried to steal my nip! Can you believe that?! She pretends it was to take a picture… yeah right.

I took it back and finally… ahhhhhhhh… Blisssssssssssssssssssssssssssss…

My human took it back because she said I was putting catnip all over the place. Duh! You bet I was. Plus I had to open it myself (my human was way too long to act! So I used my teeth)

Ahhhh… it was wonderful. I had catnip all over my paws and my human sprinkled a little more on me. Loved it!

Then I had to find the catnip that had fallen on the floor. You don’t let such good catnip go to waste! No no no!!

I think I might have some left on my chin

Miam !

Did I say it was pure bliss?

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go find out where my human stored the precious bag…

Thank you SO MUCH to Katnip Lounge! It’s the best catnip I’ve had EVER and my human says she’s never seen me enjoying catnip that much! I confirm.

Hiya Furriends!

Sorry again for the long silence. After her seminar thingie, my human and I played a lot, like you could see on my last post, and then she began having some “important” stuff to do, of which I will tell you more later in this post. You’re going to be surprised! I know I was!!

First, an update on Grouik’s page: it will be up soon. The humans are making videos of all the footage (vocab builder) they have. I will let you know when it is ready.

Secondly, I received several awards from furriends: THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH! Sorry for being so late. I will accept them in a special post on Tuesday (because Mondays are for memories you know, and I already missed one, and I owe you Part 2 of my adoption day).

Thirdly, I want to send a HUGE thank you to Sparkle that had a giveaway of Fancy Feast Mornings a while back and I was one of the winners! I received it this past week. There was my name on the package! Look:


Wow, that’s for me?


Can someone open it now?


What you mean “it’s called mornings and it’s the afternoon already?!” Seriously?!


Okay. Here is my prize, this is morning and we’re still in bed. Wake up and open these for me now.


Human?


Ah, finally! Mmmmh those look good


Can I open these myself? Hmmmm…


For the grace of Ceiling Cat, human, open one!


Are we done with the pictures? Can you open one now?

Thanks to the humans at Nestle Purina for this yummy package. Milou cannot have it (because of his health diet). But me and the kiddie love it.

Yeah, that’s right, that’s my fourth point, the humans being busy: I’m no longer the youngest member of our family. Sniff.



Friday evening, they came back home with a kitten! Look at him:

His name is Frisco. He cannot stop moving! Except when he takes long naps.

Well, okay, okay, I will be able to get over it and play with him (we have already started to play together actually), but at first it was kind of scary: are the humans going to exchange us for this kitten, will my human keep on giving me treats, cuddles, and everything?

Milou didn’t want to get it at first. We both had to make it clear who was the Boss here (Hey Newbie, we were here first!).

All in all, Frisco is, I must admit, fun, and I will finally have a furry friend to play with. BUT, I say the humans could have asked (Gee, Milou is now hissing at everyone in the house again). For example, yesterday night, I surprised my human joyfully playing with the little fur ball. I was outraged! She saw that and tried to make up for it, but it was too late: no cuddles, no petting, no purring, no nothing but the back of disrespect! Was she going to replace me just like that?!

But today we played, both with the human and the kiddie so I think it might – might – be a good thing. If the kiddie stops eating food from my bowl! Ah kids!

Here are some pics of the both of us. Sorry they’re blurry, but Frisco can’t stop moving!

Since my human is again gone for the week to another of these seminar thingies, I thought I might as well go fishing!

Please forgive the mess my human left behind. This is her desk. Well, no, sorry, this is my desk but this is her mess.

Anyway, the humans say to get fish you need to fish or go fishing. So fishing I went. But there were no salmon to fish. No fish at all actually. Nothing but Milou…

. . .

Meeeeeee-looooooo…

Where is my salmon in papillote with catnip pesto? I’m waiting…

Service just ain’t what it used to be!

(Full disclosure: those pictures were taken in France but, guess what? I’m still waiting for my salmon in papillote with catnip pesto!)

P.S.: my human is once again going to one of these seminar thingies, so forgive me if I am a little slow to comment on your bloggies in the next few days.

Purrs!

As promised yesterday, here is my new video. Remember that if you like it, you can nominate it for the Internet Cat Video Film Festival here (reminder about what the festival is about here).

Just a few words about this video.

I love olives. My human once caught me licking olives on her table. Ooops. The good part is that she decided to give me one as a treat from time to time. She DID ask two vets if it was okay and they said it was if I get only one once in a while (also check here and here).

Olives have a stronger effect on me than catnip. I love to smell them and if the olive smells very good and my human is keeping it too long between her fingers, I can bite the fingers to get it (olive effect). The good thing with olives is that it can also be used as a toy! Most of the time I just eat part of it after playing.

Not all cats love olives though. Grouik and Milou for example couldn’t care less. So, use your good judgement, humans.

Remember that my human brought back home some fresh catnip some time ago? Indeed, I offered some to a good furriend. Also I reported that contrary to my half brothers, I couldn’t smell the nip from the plant.

Well, I thought I would give it another try, now that what was left of the plant had had time to mature a bit.

Hiya! Let’s smell this plant to see if it’s really catnip

Sniffing…

Snuffling…

Ooooooh… Smells good… let’s taste it…

Gimme more!

Oooooooh la la… it feels so good…

Looks like the nip only needed to “ripen” for it to really feel good! Delicious! Now if you’ll excuse me, I need a nap… Is there some nip left? Just asking…

Here is something we like in common my human and I: Ladurée. She keeps the funky, colored, round thingies she eats and I keep the bags!
My human, she calls it a win-win situation. I say I’d rather have the bag than those colored thingies she calls macarons! Hence, I win!

Hiya!

Look at what I got myself into!

Keep out! This bag is mine!

Look at the genius of Ladurée bags: there’s a string attached! Two actually!!

I can play hide and seek from the bag.

Love this bag!

But the center is in France :-/

450 cats and 200 dogs are in a full board hotel in Elven. Twelve years ago, the company Diana Pet Food set up one of the biggest testing centers for pets in the world there, in order to assess what food they like best. Kibbles and pâtées makers love it.

According to the article, cats live the good life in this place similar to a “3-star hotel” and can choose the food they prefer.

That’s exactly the goal of this “3-star hotel” for dogs and cats, based in Elven (Morbihan, France) . . . . to test the attraction of the pets to the ingredients that Diana Pet Food prepares in order to go with kibbles and pâtées. Powders or potions, “made with natural ingredients,” that the company will sell to Purina, Mars Royal Canin, or retailer groups brands…, the biggest names in animal food. “We hold 55% of the global market of appetence factors,” explains Jean-Pierre Rivery, Diana Pet Food’s President.

Apparently, there are 200 dogs and 450 cats living there. It is kind of like human homes only with a lot more food options.

What bothers me a little is that dogs and cats come very young from breeders and “work’ there only for a period of 4 to 5 years. Then they are “given for adoption.” But we all know that adult cats (and dogs I guess?) are less wanted when they are already adults…

They also say that the food has to smell good to… humans!

In Elven, humans give their opinion. “We must give satisfaction to the animal and the smell must please their owner” [sic!] analyzes Isabelle Guiller, R&D Director. “If it smells bad he [the human] won’t buy it again.” But owners [geez!] are received in white, sterile cubicles. For in Elven, the VIP room is for [pets].

There’s a video in the article. It’s in French but you can see a little bit the testing center.

So what do you think?

Mojitos for hot summers

I know I blogged this before but… this might be useful these days + I like the music =^.^=

I bet my human is going to rush to the store to check it out. I’m talking about Ms Reich’s children book, “Minette’s Feast: The Delicious Story of Julia Child and her Cat”

The story, she said, should delight not just kids, but foodies, cat lovers, Child fans and Francophiles.

“Minette’s Feast: The Delicious Story of Julia Child and her Cat,” was released May 1 by Abrams and tells the story of Child’s first cat she adopted when she lived in Paris in 1948 with her husband, Paul. At the time, Child was learning to cook and the couple lived in an old apartment near the Seine.

I have lived in Paris too! Oui Madame !

Reich explained that as Child was learning to cook, she would often give Minette the leftovers. Her apartment, she added, also had mice in the walls.

“The crux of the story is about the cat preferring the mice to anything Julia Child cooks,” Reich said.

This reminds me something

Gotta tell my human to buy it. Also you can check the author’s website.

My human likes to cook (although it’s not always to our taste – ahem). And she likes to read cooking blogs. In fact, she spends way too much time reading cooking blogs while she could be playing with me instead. Anyway.

Nevertheless, I noticed a nice post today that might be of interest to my readers. It comes from Sprinkle Bakes, one of my human’s favorite cooking blogs, and it’s about making peanut-honey cupcakes for dogs. Check it out!

I also happen to completely agree with the human who wrote it:

His history is somewhat of a mystery to us, but we were told that he came from a pretty bad situation. You’d never know that from his demeanor. He’s the sweetest real-life teddy bear you’ll ever meet! And he instantly fit right in with Biscuit-the-pug and our three kitty-cats. Words cannot express how gentle and loving he is. It breaks my heart that there are so many animals of similar docility that get taken to the shelter. I don’t like to think about that too much, but I felt that I must mention it.

My human has the same reaction. And so do I. I often pray Ceiling Cat that he may keep them safe and find them a forever home.

Let’s go back to something more fun! Let’s wish Churro a Happy Birthday! Many purrs to you, Churro!

We’re glad Simon and his cat are very successful and well-known. It is nice from Simon to recognize that this success is mainly due to his cat though ;-)

We are very much a fan of Simon’s cat in this house, furry friends and humans alike. That’s why after the videos, we’re going to ask our humans to check the book:

I think I’m hungry. Let me get my human to give me some food ;-)

Fish attack!

Learn your lesson furriend: a fish that has been eaten doesn’t attack ;-)

It’s not clear how the feline was able to gain so much weight in just two years. Adult cats typically weigh between seven and 12 pounds.

“If you go online, you’ll see a lot of fat cats and these are people who have fed them just one thing, like meat or something that’s not nutritionally balanced,” Swan said. “Then the cat refuses to eat anything else and then they just get fatter and fatter and fatter.”

Here is the entire article. Hang on furriend!

Let’s start with a video:

Us cats are kind of picky regarding our food. It should smell good. It should taste good, of course. And we like some variety. Humans (usually) eat different meals everytime they eat so why wouldn’t we? So don’t be surprised if we sometimes adventure on the table to taste your food. You should actually be honored because you eat some strange food sometimes (who can even get close to smelling this? I mean yuck!)

My human loves to cook. She cooks cakes for her human… and treats for Grouik, Milou and I too! I already mentioned a recipe before. As posted, I think that’s a really nice attention from our humans to cook for us.

My human is currently reading a book titled “The Natural Pet Food Cookbook“.

She was reading it on the sofa the other night and I was looking at it from time to time. It looked like the book was full of info on our needs in terms of proteins, carbs, vitamins and stuff like that. My only critical point would be that the book is divided into a section for cats and another for dogs and, well, let’s concentrate on cats ;-)

Here is a recipe from the book that my human baked for us: Champion Cat Turkey Kibble

For some reason, humans appear to enjoy taking pictures of everything (us especially) including food. I say why take pics of food when you can eat it instead? Anyway, here are a couple of pics my human took of the baking process and of the finished kibbles (let’s be nice to our humans and let them add to the editorial content of our blogs from time to time).

First you gotta mix the ingredients:

Mix, mix, mix

Add the turkey

Then my human did several actions that made noise and prevented me from completing a well-deserved nap… and when I checked next, the dough was ready and they were creating the kibbles with her human. Milou noticed, too and was very much interested!

To the oven the tons of kibbles went… smelled bonito fish… and tada! Des croquettes !

For some reason she left them in the oven all night (I think my human is a little lazy sometimes). And today was the day to taste them.

Smell…

Taste…

Ok… now furiends, don’t get me wrong, it was nice of my human to bake something for me, err, us. But if she would have consulted me, err us, first, I would have let her know that I prefer food with sauce or gravy. Sorry, but I’m not exactly a fan :-/

They are not bad though, I will try some more later. And I’m sure Milou will eat them anyway ;-)

My human promised to try other recipes :-) Maybe next time she won’t bake like there are 10 Milous in the family though!

Check the book for plenty of other recipes for your furiends. Don’t be too disappointed if your furiend doesn’t like the first one. We’re all different with different foods we like, just like humans, so try again!

And don’t forget to add catnip!
