The other day I found a super cool box…

Something is telling me I won’t be able to keep it to myself long though…

Read Full Post »

In French, the word “bookworm” can be translated into the expression “rat de bibliothèque” (library rat). Well, I’m certainly not a rat (!) or a worm (!!) but I’ve always loved books! I guess that makes me a bookcat!

These pics were taken when I was about 9 months old, at my human’s Mom’s home. I was on top the book case. You can click on any picture of the gallery below to biggify and get to the diaporama but first I want to show you something.

Can you see the wallpaper peeling a little near the ceiling? It was me! I wanted to be a home decorator at the time! And can you see my tail? That’s because my human thought I wouldn’t be a good home decorator! The nerve!
You will be able to see that on several pics I am watching my piece of art very proudly!

Speaking of books, my human and I will review a wonderful book on Thursday.

I also learned from Cat Wisdom 101 that April is National Poetry Month. It will finally (I say finally because this has been a project since last December!) be the occasion for a book giveaway linked to poems, drawings and… kitties of course! And this will be on Caturday!

So I wish everyone a great week and hope to see you all on these two days especially!

A Box Story

Not so long ago, when my human’s Mom sent me my favorite food for my purrthday, it was packed – you guessed it! – in a box. The box is from the French post office and it can be folded and unfolded.

Of course, it is not enough that the usual suspects would play with MY tunnel… some Mademoiselle has to get MY box too!

I was peacefully napping in my box when…

Who's this? Is this Kitshka?

Who’s this? Is this Kitshka?

Yes, it is Kitshka...

Yes, it is Kitshka…

Kitshka: Hiya Texas! Can I come play in your box? Texas: No!

Kitshka: Hiya Texas! Can I come play in your box?
Texas: No!

Kitshkla: purrlease... Texas: Seriously no!

Kitshka: purrlease…
Texas: Seriously, no!

Kitshka: Come on... Texas: Get out or I'll bunny kick you out!

Kitshka: Come on…
Texas: Get out or I’ll bunny kick you out!

Kitshka: But we can both fit in it! Texas: Out! Out!

Kitshka: But we can both fit in it!
Texas: Out! Out!

Out out out!

Out out out!

Kitshka: Texas is being mean with me, sniff... Texas: Awww... well, okay, let's share the box...

Kitshka: Texas is being mean to me, sniff…
Texas: Awww… well, okay, let’s share the box…

Kitshka: Hooray!! Texas: I think I'm gonna have to find me another box...

Kitshka: Hooray!!
Texas: I think I’m gonna have to find me another box…

Kitshka: Don't take so much room, Texas! Texas: Yep, I need another box...

Kitshka: Don’t take so much room, Texas!
Texas: Yep, I need another box…

Hey, Texas!

Hey, Texas!

Are you leaving?

Are you leaving?

I guess that means the box is mine then, right?

I guess that means the box is mine then, right?

Tunnel Envy

My tunnel is super cool and super fun to play with, in, around! I haven’t used it to teleport yet but K and I had lots of fun chasing each over through it.

Needless to say that everyone here, except the humans – Thank Ceiling Cat! – wants to play with it!

Here are the usual suspects, waiting for their turn.

Of course, you’ve seen Kitshka already. Look at Milou.

If only he would stop hissing at me all the time, we could play together!

Have a great, playful Sunday, everyone!

So, as you know, Texas celebrated his 7th purrthday last week. One of his gifts was a super cool tunnel!

I have been having lots of fun with it. I LOVE it!

I wonder if I could use the lights to teleport Quill and Greyson here…

Hiya everyone!

Oh! Someone’s coming! Who is this?

Oh! This is Milou! Hiya Milou! Will you play with me?

No, Milou! Don’t go!

Is someone ever going to let me play with their tail?

I must apologize (again) for my human: I was unable to post a VBP post the past week and only my furriend Savannah posted one here. Thank you, Savannah.

As a reminder (VBP), you can still post your VBP post until tonight for this week and enter the link to your post via Savannah’s post by clicking on the bluey badge.

Between her “work” and her “classes,” my human monopolized (VBP) the computer and ignored our longing (VBP) for blogging and visiting our furriends. Hmpf.

But fear not my furriends, tomorrow there will be a new VBP post AND I will also post the links to the past two weeks’ pawticipants =^.^=

Meanwhile, Kitshka and I are getting ready for Spring, preparing our fur as necessary. Except Kitshka is more interested in playing… (Notice the laser eyes to the human ;-)

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Who tried to drown the catnip mousie in one of our water bowls?!
This is NOT the best way to get catnip tea!

That’s what’s left of it.

The pom-pom of the Cat-a-pole that is.

See the difference?

I am so proud of myself! I nom-ed it ’til the end!

I thought the female human would be proud to see my prowess when she woke up.

But she was not really pleased. That’s because of what was behind me. What was left of the pom-pom.

Shouldn’t I be proud? Now what I’d like to know is when the human is going to order a new one. She says I have to wait a bit because I destroyed it. I didn’t! I nom-ed it! That’s different!

Also, as evidenced by the pics above, the female human is not taking good pictures when just out of bed.

Also, the humans do keep the cat-a-pole in a closet but I had managed to grab the pom-pom and go hide it some place (I can’t tell where). That’s also why they were not pleased with my prowess, you see.

These pictures were taken in March 2007. I was 11 month-old! And living in France with my human.

So we are a day late posting our VBP post this week. Sorry about that. But I can use this very human mistake to remind you that you have an entire week to post yours! You don’t have to post on Thursday, you can post between Thursday and the next Wednesday! Isn’t that a nifty (VBP) blog hop?

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, as you know, and someone here was very excited because she got mentioned and invited to play.

Kitshka got invited to play tag with Quill, at Housecat Confidential. She was mesmerized (VBP).

Kitshka was actually so thrilled (VBP) that she thought she could travel to Quill’s through the laptop screen. Tsk tsk tsk.

I say no chaperon, no playing tag. Yep.

In any case, Quill, we all hope your Mom is doing better. Kitshka says she sends special fluffy purrs!

Last week, we mentioned bloggers playing with words. Sparkle pointed out that we had forgotten our good furriend King Spitty. That’s the human’s fault, of course.

Spitty @Spitty Speaks with his dictionary of Acronyms.

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!

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

We have not told you yet (I think) but this little project, initiated by Jet and her Mom, was started several months ago. The humans’ lives being what they are, they sometimes got in the way and hampered (VBP) its realization. But everything comes in time, and in the meantime, we have discovered that several other bloggers have a keen (VBP) interest in words.

So today, I thought I would present to all of you a potpourri (VBP) of those we have discovered.

Austin @(CAT)achresis with Dr. Austin Tuxedo’s Word of the Day at the end of each post. Dr. Austin sure knows how to play with words!

Liousha & Tiki @Liousha & Tiki and Graffiti, Zingara & Romeo @La Voix aux Chats-Pitres with Charabia (check here and here) give us French kitty vocabulary lessons!

Saffy, Cosmo, and Phoebe, and their human Angie @Catladyland with Fanglish, or the “the underground feline code of lingo known as Fanglish.”

Nerissa @Nerissa’s Life with My Personal A to Z Challenge (here is the latest post in the series)

I am perplexed (VBP). I think my human is forgetting some bloggers…

If you happen to be regularly playing with words and expressions on your bloggie and you are not on the list, we might either have missed you or the human has forgotten to include you. Leave me a message and I will do a sequel (VBP) next week!

Happy VBP everyone!

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 »

Remember when I had won this fabulous toy that is the cat-a-pole?
Well, the prize also included some great toys from Moderncat (now Hauspanther.com), as well as litter (World’s best cat litter) and a lickety stick (but we’ll have a post about those last two tomorrow or on Sunday).

We really wanted to post pictures because we love these toys, AND I think it is the least we can do to say thank you. But that was a period when the human was super busy (huh-oh, looks like more busy-ness is to come) and we never did.

So here are some pictures… and a video of Kitshka!

[You can click on any picture to get a bigger version in the slideshow.]

My preference went to the ModKicker, which smelled good catnip! Kitshka and I both like the Felt Rollers, but Kitshka is playing with them more than I do. She is also having fun with the Junk Food Flyer but her favorite one, actually really one of her favorite toys EVER (she takes it everywhere in the house), is the Lynks Felted Wool Toy! She loves it!

So, we want to say THANK YOU to Zee & Zoey and Moderncat for the fun!

Today, I am emulating (VBP) Savannah’s post last week: I am posting our VBP post and I am pawticipating in the Thankful Thursday blog hop!

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

Killing two birds with one stone (VBP) click.

I have good news for all my furriends who were concerned about my welfare because the humans had killed the boxes. We I got brand new ones!

And guess who was determined (VBP) to play with my tail?
[you can click on any pic to biggify it]



So, what are we thankful for, this week?

Me, for my boxes. Kitshka, for my tail. Jet, Savvy and I, for your pawticipation in our blog hop.

The other day I was looking for my silvervine fishie that my human had ordered at Nip & Bones for Christmas FOR ME. Remember my silvervine fishie?

Well, look what I saw! First Kitshka…

Then Milou!! Milou is always stealing my stuff!

Look at how he abused my little fishie!

LOOK AT THIS! He kissed my fishie!!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to nom my fishie to show everyone whose fishie it is!

Today is VBP (Vocab Building Project) Thursday!



What am I talking about? One cool, versatile (VBP), and funny blog hop for those who love to learn new words.

You can enter a new entry each week. The hosts, Jet, Savvy, and me post every Thursday but YOU, my furriends, can post anytime you want from Thursday to Wednesday each week, and then all you have to do is enter your permalink (VBP) to the collection of participants by clicking on the little blue badge at the bottom of our Thursday post. All the details can be found here.

Mark Twain is supposed to have said that

Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.

Well, our furriends did just that this past week: their posts (action) were loud as often as their words… if that makes any sense! (No I didn’t have nip. Yet.)

Here is this first week’s collection of pawticipants: 9 PAWTICIPANTS! (If I take away Savvy and I, as well as Spitty, which I believe said he mistakenly entered his post? Spitty, easy on the nip, pal)

Here they are (click on the image to visit the VBP post, on the name of the blog to visit their blog):


Bama from Shat Cast


Fenris from Alasandra, the Cats and Dogs


Ann from Pawsitively Pets


Loy from Yikes! Loy Turns 60


Easy from Easyrider


Misaki from The Misadventures of Misaki


Mollie and Alfie from Mollie and Alfie


Gizmo from Terrier Torrent


Dogs N Pawz (I am not sure about your name, furriends, sorry)



Isn’t that dazzling (VBP)? THANK YOU so much for your pawticipation!

Now, since I had to input each furriend one by one (because wordpress.com doesn’t allow script – whatever that means!), I think I need a little nap.

Before that I would just like to remind you that I have a giveaway for two pawsome 2013 created by The Creative Cat. Check it out here and don’t hesitate to pawticipate (wherever you are)!

We are looking forward to your next VBP entry! Purrs y’all!

Hey It’s Jet, Savannah and Texas Here.

By now, you probably figured out that Texas, Savannah and I have put our collective fur together, (ok, our Moms helped, too), to make the Vocabulary Building Project an official Blog Hop!

We enjoyed giving you hints all week: click here for Savannah’s post, here for Jet’s post and here for my post in case you missed them.

How did we begin? Texas and Savannah turn to Jet…you better tell this part, Jet…

Oh, Ok…Jet Here… let me tell you how Mom and I started this a long time ago on our blog:

Mom’s Papa always asked his children and grandchildren to keep pen and paper beside their beds so when they read their books and came upon an unknown word they could jot it down to look up later. When the family got together they played lots of vocabulary building games. So, when Mom and I began blogging, she wanted to avoid word ruts.

Last spring, Mom inquired whether Savannah and Miss Linda might like to collaborate (VBP) on making VBP a hop… Savannah and Miss Linda introduced us to Texas and Miss Carine creating the VBP Planning Committee.

We’ve been working diligently (VBP) ever since! Miss Ann, Zoey and Maggie from Zoolatry created a pawsome badge, which Miss Carine did really high tech thingies to! Check out Zoey, Prop Mistress extraordinaire, helping with badge arrangements.

First, she made sure the dictionary was sitting properly (VBP) on the table… (notice it is our very special dictionary with all our initials on it)…

Then she had to hop up to make sure it was going to stay straight for the photo shoot and she wanted to see if she could get the bookmark stuck in too…

Great job Zoey, thanks for the help!… as you can see, our VBP Badge is pawfect!

So let’s all talk about what to do now…

How to pawticipate


The Vocab Building Project, or VBP, is a blog hop that invites you to

learn new vocabulary and how to use it,

have fun in the process, using new words in a weekly blog post,

discover new blogs and make new friends.


What do you have to do? It is very simple.

  1. Every Thursday, Jet, Savannah, and Texas will write a blog post containing 2 to 3 words or expressions that are not often used in their blog posts (see examples here, here, and here),
  2. If you decide to join us in the fun, you have one week (you can pick any day you wish, from Thursday to the next Wednesday, that’s how flexible this blog hop is!) to write a blog post containing 2 to 3 words or expressions that you do not use often – it does not have to be the same as the hosts’, this is your choice,
  3. Pick one of the following badges by copying its code below (select the text in the box, right-click on selected code and copy), paste the code in your post (you have to paste it in the Text/HTML section when you write your post), write your post and don’t forget to add (VBP) after each new word you are using. We strongly suggest you only use 2-3 just to keep it easy and interesting,
  4. When your post is online, enter its URL/permalink by clicking on the Inlinkz image that you will find at the bottom of our Thursday VBP post,
  5. The following Thursday, at the end of our VBP posts, we will link to all the participating blogs, so that we can all visit participating blogs.

Any question? Leave a comment below and we will get back to you as soon as pawsible!

Another great Vocab Building Project Blog Hop day!

Have you read my furriend Savannah’s post yesterday? There have been crazy things going on at her place.

Isn’t it strange? I mean, human letters going crazy… hmm… I can’t say I like it lots. I’d rather have shrimps flying around, if you ask me.

So Savannah called me through her Fast Leopard Teleport Tunnel to ask me to help. Only it was about midnight at her place… which means about 3 am here.

I can’t say there have not been some strange things going on here too… Some furriends have noticed!

What is this secret page on my blog’s menu?… Katie Isabella and The Cool Cat Blog wrote their concern to me…

Also the other day, Kitshka came to me to show me a letter she had found! She had found a B!

Wait! I found much more letters, later!

But there were too many! What could that possibly mean?!

I think the best thing to do is to ask another furriend… Jet.

Yes. Let’s all meet at Jet’s place tomorrow!

I don’t know what I love best: my fishie or the silvervine in its tummy. I lick it, I nom it, I play rough with it… okay sometimes I kiss it too. Everybody needs a little love, even silvervine fishies.

Nobody is allowed to touch my fishie though. Not even Kitshka. This is MY fishie.

You can click on any picture if you want a bigger me on your screen. Who wouldn’t want a bigger me on their screen? Not you, I hope!

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:

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!

[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!
[click on any picture to biggify]

Kitshka was first hesitant, but that didn’t last long!
[click on any picture to biggify]

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!

Look!

You know what?

You know what?

I love this ornaments

I love these ornaments

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!

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!

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!

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.

Finally, the long-awaited post I told you about is here! Woo-ooh!

~~~

Most of my readers probably know that Katie of Glogirly was recently elected Cat Ruler of the World in a contest in which the real winners were the shelters each of the cat-idates was supporting (and especially the new ruler’s choice, here Blind Cat Rescue).

The great election contest was organized by Zee & Zoey and their human Ms. Deb Barnes (Hiya!). The contest was backed by generous sponsors who donated meals, litter and other prizes to shelters. Please follow the link just above for all the details.

Some of the kitties voting also won some prizes! I was one of the lucky Facebook winners!!

We first received the Cat-A-Pole, directly from Ms. Barnes who added a sweet little card!

Okay, the picture isn’t great, but it’s just to give you an idea of its size and everything. Just check the website of the toy for more details.

It was an instant success with me.

The little fur ball with feathers, at the end of the pole, moves in all unexpected directions! Plus it seems the humans get tired less quickly which means we can play longer! So the toy is more enjoyable to both the human (I know, we don’t care much about them but if that can make them play longer ;-) and the kitty.

Milou did play a bit with it too but the human didn’t have the time to take pictures. Truth is, tornado Kitshka spotted the toy and took immediately possession of it. Literally.

She enjoys the Cat-a-Pole so much that I or Milou cannot play with it when she is in the room. Want me to prove it? Check the following video. Don’t forget to turn your speakers on to hear her growling and hissing at the beginning (understand: “the toy is mine!”). And don’t miss the end when she helps the human edit the video.

[If you cannot see the video from my blog, click here]

The toy was – is – a huge success! Thanks to Ms. Barnes and Cat-a-Pole!

Many things happened while my human was doing something else than posting on my blog…

But first things first: thank you all for sending purrs and messages to Dayak. Her Mom left a message in the comments of my post to say that she was sleeping a lot due to the medication. We are waiting for more news and hope she is going to be better really soon. I keep sending purrs.

In other news, from my home this time, Kitshka has deaded another toy. Really deaded.

See, Spitty? This one has no magical powers I’m afraid and will not come back to life. It never was a favorite of mine or Grouik or Milou, but Kitshka liked it a LOT. As you can obviously guess. But that’s okay because we have other toys. More on this in the days to come ;-)

Some time ago, I was one of the lucky winners of a Purina Be Happy T-Shirt over at Cat Chat. Thanks to Cody and Caren!

So my human and I went to the site (actually their Facebook page) where we could make our own t-shirt. Because you see, the coolest part was that we could “make” the t-shirt the way it pleased us me. So I told my human to make it about me.

Guess what? Yep, she messed up. Check the t-shirt.

It is a very nice t-shirt but how is it about me?


Doesn’t smell like me…

Is the kitty supposed to be me? Just wondering because I don’t have any fishbowl to fish from here…

Here’s what I think about you making this t-shirt a tribute to me…

Busy busy busy…

Shhh shhh!

What?! Yes, human, you can wear this nice t-shirt… as long as you get me a fishbowl with a magical fishie inside, like Spitty’s

Actually, I don’t really need the fishbowl. I’ll be magnanimous (VBP): the magical fishie alone will do.

Thanks to Cody and Caren and Purina and Happy Caturday everyone!

Where my human’s Mom lives, there is a small forest nearby. My human and her husband brought me there a couple of times when I was still almost a kitten (about 5 months old on the pics).

I loved it! I was on a leash (my human was frightened at the idea that I could run away) but that was still pretty cool. I could smell the different plants and animals. I could climb trees. It was a great adventure!

The pics are not that great because my human had just bought her DSLR and she was learning to use it. But they’re still good memories =^.^=
