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?!?

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!

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:

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!

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?

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.
