Those pics were taken just two weeks after I was adopted.

I have a love-hate relationship with suitcases. While they are fun to play in and sometimes comfy to sleep in (especially when the human has already put clothes in one of them), they usually mean that the human is leaving for an undetermined number of days. Sometimes I might travel with her, though.

When I was younger, my human had to travel a lot, and I quickly understood that suitcases were not a good sign: they have the power to steal my human from me!

One day, to show my discontent, I peed in an empty one my human had left opened. You think my human would have thanked me for trying to prevent the suitcase from kidnapping her? Pfft, not even! She was not pleased at all!

So I tried different techniques, but mostly sit-ins. It never deterred my human from leaving :-/

Yes, human. It is your lingerie. Why?

Yes, human. It is your lingerie. Why?

Do you like suitcases and if not, do you have a technique to make them disappear?

My human had an urgent (understand: she had completely forgotten about it) paper to finish yesterday and could not finish the post we wanted to have today.
This morning, she felt like she had caught a cold or something, so today’s post had to be rescheduled.

I haven’t posted a “Monday are for Memories” for some time now, so here is a picture of me napping in my carrier when I was a little less than 3 months. I had just been adopted (3 days before). The picture was taken on my human’s birthday (really human, who cares about that?).

Have a great day, furriends!

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!

I am taking a break from the usual “Mondays are for memories” because we just feel like doing nothing today.

You still have until midnight today to play to our little game. We’ve seen many good answers already! Someone is going to be treated to a little package soon =^.^=

In the meantime, we’ll just do what we do best!

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!

Hiya furriends!

Another 1+ week without being able to blog or read your bloggies… I know my human was trying her best, but since she’s not a kitty, her best just wasn’t enough. Sigh. Sorry.

I have many awards to acknowledge and share, and many furriends to thank. I will be doing this in the days to come, probably one at a time.

In the meantime, here are some warming (I hope!) pictures for those who are in cold areas or (still :-/) without electricity (one of my humans’ friends in CT just got his electricity and Internet back and we know some still haven’t).

[My human is saying that it is stupid since they can’t see the pics if they don’t have electricity. Duh! I know, human! But I’m sending warm thoughts and purrs!]

After this very pointless, human interruption, here are the pics. Yeah, I didn’t looked pleased on the pics because Kitshka and I were having the bestest of naps and my human woke us up with her awwwwwwwws! Do humans and interrupting kitties go together, you think?

Warm purrs to y’all!

I only recently discovered that October was also Tocktober… The month to show our tocks!
I discovered that by reading my furriends’ bloggies.

I happen to show my tocks to my human not only in October but also whenever I am not happy with her work.

Here is a picture of Kitshka and I taken in early September (Kitshka was a little littler):

And here are pictures of, first, Kitshka and I, and then Milou, both taken in October:

I think Milou wins if there was a contest between us. What do you think? Do you like our tocks? Are there other funny cat blogosphere events we should know about (I liked showing my tocks to the humans!)?

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!

Furriends,

Is it just us – or our part of the world – or is it getting cold these days?

We – Kitshka, Milou and I – spend most of our days napping (which means more than the usual 10-hour mandatory napping), sometimes cuddled next to each other.
Even Kitshka sleeps more!

She is NOT checking something on the floor.
She DID fall asleep like that.




Milou even made himself a warm tent with my human’s hubby’s sleeve-free (!) jacket.

Taken!

Zzzzzzzzzzz…. ***snoring sounds***

What is the weather like where you live?

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?

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!

Alright furriends, I am so not pleased with my human and her not giving me time to 1) post on my blog, 2) visit all my furriends’ bloggies (I tried this but didn’t manage to visit all of you yet – sorry).

Sooooo, being a French kitty, I’m threatening to STRIKE: no more purrs, no more letting my human pet me if we are not back by THIS Friday (and have additional dried tuna treats everyday and tuna juice twice a week)! You hear me human? Of course I will train Kitshka in the art of French strike.

Kitshka has started making banners out of Christmas gift paper she found behind a closet, hidden (!). Agreed, she needs a little more practice.



Today, we have planned a sit-in in front of the desk.

Oh and human, we KNOW where the Greenies are. So Friday is the lastest limit.

[My human was scared enough about the no-purring threat that she helped me post this one, so Kitshka and I have high hopes]

…to keep you waiting.

Are we forgiven now?

We were busy

Sorry furriends for not posting these past couple of days. I’ll be back to regular blogging tomorrow (when the human is ready to get un-busy) and I have some really cool stuff to show you!

In the meantime, check how Kitshka and I really got ourselves busy on the humans’ bed.

Dancing

Singing

Supervising the human: “What are you doing exactly, human?”

After-work napping

Yeah, alright, Kitshka did pretty much everything. But heh! She’s a kid, she’s young! Besides that gives her the opportunity to learn!

Purrs to y’all!

I was asking my human to type the subject with “nappy Sunday” but she told me I shouldn’t because nappy means something else. Ah?
So here’s to you for a napful Sunday!

And look who’s conquered Milou’s grumpy heart?

Read Full Post »

I has a sad.

What you are about to see is a little bit gruesome, so if you have a sensible heart, you may not want to see the following pictures.

Let me start with why and the least gruesome of pics.

Kitshka is very energetic. Well, she’s a kitten, so that’s quite normal and healthy.
As mentioned before, despite the fact that the humans got her brand new toys just for her, she had to use our toys.

And destroy them.

Here is my beloved Kragonfly, all torn and chewed.

Now is the time to turn away if you can’t bear to see destroyed beloved toys…

Here is our Da Bird, or what’s left of it.

My human doesn’t want us to play with it anymore, but she says she cannot buy a new one just yet. Hmph.

And here is the little lady responsible for that. And proud of it!

I want new toys!!

Kitshka Friday

Today it’s been 4 weeks that Kitshka has joined our family. So I thought I’d do a Kitshka Friday! Enjoy!

[The pictures are in chronological order, except for the “measurements” at the end, but the two measurement pics are themselves in chronological order too]

Hiya furriends,

I know I haven’t posted or visited your blog for a couple of days now. I apologize. But I have a good reason.

We were so in the spirit of Labor Day Kitshka and I, with our human laboring, that we thought we should nap not only for us, but for our humans too. Aren’t we kind kitties?

We will be answering your comments and visiting your blog some time today, after our nap =^.^=

In the meantime, here are some napping techniques to help your human benefit from your napping.

Curled-up-position, or the Cat (sometimes mispronounced “Chi”) position – Let the energy flow all around



On the side position – Let’s direct the energy in the good direction



The yin-yang-kinda position – We provide the napping while the humans provide the laboring. We all have our part to play.

This position is very powerful. Let me show you how much it is powerful.

Can you feel the energy?

The top-down position – A great way to share the energy, from the top



Occupy-the-human’s-desk position – Obviously, my human’s husband’s desk needs a little “cleansing energy”



The raised-behind position – A revolutionary technique developed by Kitshka, and supervised by myself



The long-distance position – The greater the length of kitties in the house, the better



Obviously, as you can see, Kitshka shows great and promising skills. She has a good master =^.^=

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 ;-)

This video is not excellent quality because my human used her point-&-shoot camera (which she needs to clean btw). She thought she was going to record a funny moment.

There you go. Filmed and edited by my human’s husband which is better than my human very good at that video thingie.
My human prefers photographs.

Here’s our welcome to little Kitshka.

Enjoy and Happy Sunday!

I admit, I might not have realized, at the time, that I was just a kitten full of energy and that Grouik and Milou were old(er). And that maybe, they didn’t have as much energy as I had.

Well little Kitshka is fun to play with but she is like a herd of kitten’s worth of energy and she doesn’t understand the concept of stopping a game to take a nap.

So I had to teach her the virtues of a good nap after we had played.

And she got it.

Yesterday night though, at around 1:30 am, she decided she needed to do some exercise and she started running in circle on the humans in their bed. Bad idea Kitshka. The humans were not very pleased as they really needed sleep and ended up closing the door to their bedroom. Me? I was inside already with them! Nice night we had after that.

I’m not sure today is going to be a good day for naps because I heard the humans plan to clean the house. Which means the abominable aspirateur!

So, I’d rather go take a nap on the humans’ bed now. And then after the cleaning, when the fresh, clean sheets await me.

Happy Caturday! What are you gonna do today?

Today, Kitshka, our new little sister, has been home for a week exactly (well, tonight it will be a week).

The humans had kept her in their room at first, separated from us. As if we couldn’t smell her. Well, Milou didn’t seem to realize. I think he didn’t want to. She had her little bowl of kitten kibbles (the same yummy ones I had when I was a kitten too!), her little bowl of water and her little litter box.
Since she felt like exploring after the first night only, they decided to prudently open the door and see what our reaction would be. Of course, we didn’t like the idea at first and we had to make it clear, was the little brat fur ball to stay, who was there first.

Below is a video of Milou and I first meeting her. Please excuse the humans’ mistakes: the orientation of the iPhone camera, the mess, the feet!

As I have mentioned before, we started playing on our second day of knowing each other, and we still do! Milou has been hissing a little less these past couple of days so it looks like she has won everyone’s heart almost. Welcome to your furever home, Kitshka!

Hope you like the video!

Miss Satchie and family: if you’re reading, we thought a lot about you yesterday. Let me explain.

So the humans brought Frisco to the vet to make sure he was in good health and so he would get his vaccines. Frisco is in perfect health but the vet decided to check, to be sure you know, that he was a boy.

Well…

No, the kiddie is a little girl. MOL!

Of course we all love her the same (Milou’s still hissing too) but the humans decided to change her name to Kitshka (They wouldn’t tell me why this name!).

You Go Girl!

P.S.: Sorry, awards acceptance tomorrow. I need a nap now.

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!

Well, what your human needs actually. Or is it the Fireman? No! It’s the kitten of course, right?

Now if I could just get my human to STOP watching the vid. She says it’s for the kitten, but somehow I have a doubt.

Now check the following one. Who’s the star? Who’s the star? Exactly Ladies.
