Sunday Selfie

I am joining the blog hop hosted by The Cat on My Head again today, with my latest selfie.     I am sticking very close to Mom since they returned home, so it was not hard for "us" to get a closeup selfie yesterday.

I Showed Them

KITTIES!!   My humans abandoned me for two whole weeks!     julie came and fed me and saw to my litterbox etc, and she was very nice, even worth some purring.    Pretty good for a cat caretaker.    But two weeks is too long not to have anyone to carry me around, or to snuggle up to at night.  When I walked around complaining to be picked up, there was nobody to do that.     And I got no BRUSHIES!! (Mom thought I might try to put the bitey on Julie if they asked her to brush me)

So I decided to show them my disapproval by horking up an extra large hairball:

Wordy Widebody Wednesday Redux

Kitties, Mom thought she would look back to see what I posted my very first Wordless Wednesday post.   It was on 9/30/09 and titled Wordless Widebody Wednesday.     I think I am quite a bit thinner now than I was then.  

We did not realize that I had been writing this blog since 2009!!

Sunday Selfie

First, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who told us that we can just skip the "Prove you are not a robot" step when commenting.   It is so FREEING!

Here is my selfie for their Sunday.    I am joining the kitties blue at The Cat on My Head  for today's blog hop.

Some Words Wednesday

Kitties, I am in a bad mood.  Because MOM is in a bad mood.   She is very frustrated with the new verification process to post comments where she has to identify all the sushis, or all the soups, or all the signs of a particular type etc to prove she is not a robot.     Poll your humans:  who else HATES it!  (the sushi seems to be the only one she can get right!)

Pee Ess:   It seems that if your blog is set for embedded comments below the post, it isn't necessary.  It only comes up if the comments appear in a pop-up box.   So if you check your blog settings, you could help some kitties out!

Stranger than Strange

Yesterday, Dad let me out on the deck, where I discovered that he had draped an old painting tarp over the table to help keep the impatiens he had recently transplanted from getting cold overnight (it went down to 33 F!).      Kitties, I was TERRIBLY interested in the tarp!!    Unbeknownst to Dad, somebody must have put catnip or something similar on it!

See how I am sniffing it?

And loving up to it?

I did that for a long time before I went in underneath it to check out the little plants.

Mom and Dad are STILL wondering what delicious smell I must have discovered on it.

Update:    Today Dad moved the tarp over some stacked chairs and small tables.     Guess where Mom saw me napping?   It's like my outside blankie!!!

Another Katie

I wanted to do a special post today for my cousin cat, Katie.    Since I have at least two friends called Katie, it can get a bit confusing!   But my Katie friends are black and white, and my cousin is tabby and white.     She is my cousin because she is my Mom's sister's kitty.  

Here are some pictures of my cousin:

What amazes me the most is that she has such very clean white parts, even though she spends a lot of time outside.    I guess the second picture of her cleaning herself so prettily is a clue as to how she does it.    Lots of hard work!

Katie lives far away, overseas, so I have not actually ever met her "in the fur".    However, we know that we share a special bond, in spite of the great physical distance between us.

Spitty's Awardie

A couple of days ago, King Spitty graced me with the Creative blogger award.      Thank you very much for that honor, Spitty.

Here is the lovely graphic that goes with the award:

I am supposed to tell you three things about myself, so here goes:

1)   My Mom is experimenting with feeding me my wet food on a plate, rather than in a bowl.     She thinks I eat more that way.   Dad always gives me my food in a bowl, so it is a constant competition/battle between them.    I guess I also told you something about my humans in #1

2)  I have two cat beds in the basement, on the wide basement window ledge.   before Audrey flew off to the Rainbow Bridge, I hardly ever slept in a bed, and if so only if it was in the dining room.    But after she left, I started to nap in one of them - it is the smaller of the two beds and I have to really squeeze myself in a tight circle to fit in it.    Because the bed is black, it is now covered in ginger furs.

3)  The other day, Mom had a ziplock bag with a whole lot of my toys marinating in catnip in it.    The zipper part was open.  Somehow in the time it took for her to go to the kitchen and make a cup of tea, I managed to get every single toy out of the bag and spread them all over the room.     The bag was still pretty much in the same place as before.     Mom has no idea how I did it.  

Now I must nominate three blogging friends to receive this award.      So many friends are creative, it is a hard choice.     I hope I am not duplicating, if you have received the award already.
