Happy Caturday

It's always amazing to us what Mom spends our green papers on -
I mean, just LOOK at this thing! ***

It's a cat magnet. If cats had crazy bendable arms and legs.
And everyone knows this is NOT true. 

AND it's orange!

...well... ok... that is a nice color, I admit.

- Toby, pondering the oddness of hoomins.

*** Mom got this from Hobby Lobby yesterday. 
We're told there was much squealing when her eyes fell upon it.

Mancat Monday

Yes, mom, I do rule (our) the world.

Your point?

PS.... Umm... Maybe don't tell Leia I meoweed that.... You know how girls are.

The Whiskeratti - Nursing Duty ACTIVATED!

We've put aside - temporarily! - our kibble investigation to assume our emergency nursing duty hats.

And like the good kittehs we are, we sprang right into action, too.

On Caturday afternoon, Mom tore her calf muscle. She was doing that thing hoomins call "exercise". We were asleep, but we're told she lunged forward on the contraption below and POP went the muscle. She said it was like the fleshy version of tearing paper.

She hobbled off to the people Stabby Place where the people vet said "not your lucky day!"
Treatment - 6 weeks of wearing a fracture boot or the bandage below if she can't get a boot, Motrin, special exercises (haven't you learned your lesson on that one?), ice, elevation. And, trust us, a fair amount of HBO words when she moves wrong. 

There is also a lot of general crankiness. 

Not to worry, we will do our best to take good care of her. 

With all our combined hearts, we wish all our furriends
and their families a BETTER week ahead than our weekend turned out to be.

Caturday Suspicions

Dear furriends,

We've made it to another Caturday! Of course, for us felines, it's always Caturday, really,
but we like to help our hoomin celebrate this day.

We've been on canned food for years now. We like it ok.. it's not nearly as good as the dry kibble was. We got used to it. But lately Mom has been pouring out KIBBLE! But not for us. Oh no, not for us.

This morning she poured it into a cup, and we both came running.
But did we get a single kibble bit? Even a lick of the crumbs? NO!

She says we can't have any, that we have our own food. Then she takes it outside with her.
 But WHAT does she do with it?

Is she... eating it herself? Would she do that??

Suspicious minds wanna know.

It's Tuesday

Sorry, Mom. 

We know you want to go to sleep now, but there are no more vacancies.
Next time, use the call ahead app for your reservation.

We hear the couch is available, though.

The Inkblots

This extremely handsome fellow, or lovely ladycat (I don't know which) is who is making my cats crazy. Actually, there are three look alikes that run around here, sometimes in a kitteh pack.

I think they come from a house around the corner. I don't know that he doesn't officially have a home; I just see him a lot around here. Lately I've noticed him napping on the other covered back porch we have, the one that thankfully my cats don't watch much.

I can't do much for him; taking proper care of my own on one income is almost more than I can manage as it is. I don't have the emotional or financial resources for more.

What I can do is leave him alone, to have this porch as a safe space, out of the elements. I can provide clean water; I can put out kibble so that if a hunt isn't succesful, at least he/they don't have to go to sleep hungry. Though I appreciate the irony that his natural diet is probably very much healther than this cheap kibble.

And not least, I can absolutely hate the people who didn't bother to fix their cats that at some point, produced this litter that runs around. 

But, what I can't do is develop an emotional connection with him. I don't speak to him, and he watches me carefully, ready to run. If this weren't a rental, I could do more, but who knows how long we will live here? What if the next people hate cats? 

Can I just say, one more time, how much I truly hate people who are so careless with these furry lives????!!!
