Sorry furriends, gotta run!…
Archive for the ‘Food’ Category
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!
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!

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