it was NOT me

when mommer came home last night, she shrieked an' hollered--it was mostly dark an' she couldn't see furry well, an' she thought we had made a really big mousie go ded inna kitchen. then she hit the light switch an' an figgered out it was her "chrissmiss red" nail polish, an' she started to shriek an' holler again, but this time it was mostly werds from the bad werd list. well, whattaya expect when you leave a roly-poly object onna table where kittehs play??

howefur: i can say wif certainty that it wasn't ME. i dunno who it was, acause i couldn't see inna kitchen. it prolly wasn't xing unless she figgered out how to break outta her rooms. nitro was sleepin' mosta the day inna chair by the fire box. an' i din't see iggy much at all that day. but i know santa paws is comin', an' i am no dummy. i was sittin' right here inna liffin' room corner onna ol' chair, not doin' nuffin'. alla time. all day long. an' that's the truth . . . thpppppbt.

duck 'n' cover!

last night i was unner attack!! it was finally warm enuf to come outta the nap pile, an' i was playin' in my crinkly tunnel in fronta the sofa. the dbd was layin' onna sofa just above my head, an' all of a sudden, she asploded!!! her head wagged about a skillion times, her not inconsiderable body levitated a coupla inches offa the sofa, her ears flapped so hard i thought she was gonna fly up onna ceiling fan, an' the most nockshus schpritz flew through the airs--i was just comin' outta the tunnel an' got soaked!!! an' this is not to mention the drefful but indescribable sound that assaulted my ears! natchurly, i, ummmmmm, sauntered away slowly to get a better view of the debree field.

after a while, efurrything looked as normal as it's efur gonna look where the dbd is concerned, so i reapproached the tunnel, stoppin' to examine the dbd's nose (from which had issued the asplosion). she drew in a quick breth, an' i saw my brief life flash befur my eyes . . . the whole thing started ofur AGAIN! billions of tiny particles rusht towards me like wet, angry bees, her ears flapt, an' this time, i, uhhhhh, sauntered ofur to my safe, cozy catcave unnerneath the platform rocker. i'm stayin' here fur a while to be sure the asplosions are ofur fur good!

13 December 2010

not today, furriends

it is 4 degrees F on our carport (that's MINUS 15.5 C for our furriends ofur the pond). we are goin' back to our snuggle pile. that is all.

gone to the dawgs!

video
this is where our mom goes day-hunting. they are haffin' a company meeting, what's wrong wif this movey?? YES!! there are dawgs drippin' offa the walls and there are NO KITTIES!!!!

they useta haff a kitteh named "k.c." (kolar cat) there fur a coupla years, but she got out one night an' was gone for two nights anna day. mom an' the ofur lady inna office were SOOOOOO upset that when the folks next door finally called to say they'd found her, the other lady took k.c. home to liff at her house wif her two kittehs, because neither she nor mom wanted to liff through anofur scare like that. so k.c. still liffs wif miss nanet an' her two catbrofurs to this day, an' the dawgs has tooken ofur the office.

once again, hell freezes ofur


yes, ladycats and gentlemancats, the above-titled amazing Event of Biblical Proportions has occurred again! the hissy, squirrelly girlcat, the fat fluffy cat, an' the aggravated ginger cat all shared mom as the temperature outside (and inside) plummeted an' warmth was at a premium before dad built a fire inna firebox!! you will notice that xing gives edmund a spectacular view of her best side, while ed tries (unsuccessfully, thank bast) to light her butt on fire wif his laser eyes, an' nitro just wants to be left the heck alone to sleep.


igmu's whereabouts are unknown, which is a blessing, otherwise this "peaceful" gathering would not have occurred, iggy's penchant for stirring things up being what it is.

mancat ed


mancats know how to find comfy nap spots in quiet, out-of-the-way places.


however, moms, in pursuit of cuteness know how to find and disturb them with the flashybox. drat their hides!

we meows fur peace!!!!

c'mon, human beans--we're cats an' dogs, fur bast's sake.
if WE kin do it, YOU kin do it, an' that'll make a better world fur all of us!!

this is the mom speaking:

ok, i saw you boys over in that corner, whispering together. then you all sauntered to the kitchen table and one by one jumped up into your usual positions around my breakfast plate with the peanut butter sammich on it. then you, mr. instigator igmu sapa, reached over and smacked ed on the tail. as expected, he whirled around. then because no one was there, he sat back down--ON MY SAMMICH!!!! i know you all knew i wouldn't eat it after that.

my only question is, did you plan that together so that ed sitting on the sammich was the point all along? or did you younger boys tell him you were gonna do something else, then depended on him being confuzzled enough to forget to turn back around after iggy swatted him? we all know his logic has been "fuzzy" for years. i'm pretty sure it was the first choice; ed may be getting older, but i doubt that he's old enough to have forgotten which end eats the sammich and which end . . . well, you get the picture.

very clever, boys; very clever. but your cleverness got you no ill-gotten gains: the dbd got the whole sammich AND got to lick the plate where the peanut butter had squooshed out the sides of the bread after ed's ample arse landed on it. i don't even wanna know how ed's butt gets clean. keep it to yourselves.

me and the bad-cat bottle? we're gonna become best friends. we'll be watching you! ::points to eyes, points to cats::

29 October 2010

ahhhhh!!!

i love My Daddy!! last night, it got furry, furry cold out. so he made the fire box all warm an' cozy, an' me an' mom drowsed all comfy inna sleepin' chair--until he poked her an' tole her to go to bed, she was snoring!! (i was, too, but in a more ladycat-like fashion, so he din't hear me. besides, he knows better'n to poke ME.)

sorry, derby--mom din't get herself in gear in time to post this yesterday for your purrthday, so here's a belated pair-o-tocks we deddycate to you . . .

ed to the left, xing to the right, making a duo of indignant 'tocks:
XING: what? you DARE to sit on My Mama while I am sitting here?
ED: youdarnbetcha! she was MY mom furst!!
XING: well, here's a moon for YOU!
ED: an' here's one for YOU!

(mom notes: somehow, mooning just doesn't have the same impact when the butts are pointin' AT each other . . . )

weird wednesday

we've told you before about the lady robin who makes her nest efurry year onna ladder by the carport where the vehicles live, an' how much exercise we gets while watchin' her an' the daddy bird flyin' in an' out. well, this last weekend, our daddy was out beside the ladder gettin' ready to go cut some firewood, an' he noticed there was anofur egg inna nest!!! he thought it looked kinda funny, so he stepped closer an' it looked odder still--until he realized it was a black walnut from our tree!!! some silly brushy-tail (we can't say "squirrel" out loud or the dbd has a spazz attack) stashed it there for "later"!! too silly!

the ed-itor in chief

ed instructs mom as she helps wif a new post. he dictates an' she types, an' makes sure that she's spellin' effurythin' right! that's furry aportant, you know--if yer gonna maintain crebidility as a germalist, you gots to spell right!

thankful thursday

although we dis her a lot, cocoa is really a pretty good sisfur as doggies go. she don't chase us (much), she don't hurt us when she does catch us, she shares sleepin' places, she lets igmu cuddle up to her, she don't bark a whole lot, an' she plays pretty gentle for someone who weighs 6 or 7 times as much as we do! an' she's pretty laid back as this picture shows. we're furry thankful she's our dbd instead of one of those yappy little aliens down the block!

13 October 2010

play wif me!!!

rocky: please play with me, nitro! c'mon--wakey-uppie! cocoa is sleepin', too, an' none of the other guys wanna play with me . . . c'mon, nitro!! please????? i'm askin' nice an' pettin' yer paw gently . . . i could be ticklin' yer whiskers or pullin' yer ears. c'mon!!!

nitro: ::opens one eye a teensy bit:: i'm gonna send you to ichiro or nicky fuzzypants if you don't quit buggin' me. THEN you'll find out what it's like to be played wif. now go 'way an' lemme sleep. ::the eye slams shut::

rocky: *sigh* won't anybody make me fly through the air like my namesake? chase me an' chew me an' slather me with malodorous spit???

mom & dad: ewwwwww. no takers here, buddy. you may as well take a nap, too.

NB: we must correct the impression that this post identifies catspit as "malodorous". not so; rocky is the dbd's pal, and therefore is accustomed to being slimed with execrable slobbers of the canine kind. he thinks that ALL spit is the same, because the meowers have nefurnefurnefur put their pristine widdle moufs on him. he was just desperate to have someone to play with.

tufty toezies!

My Mama refers to the hairs in my toezies as "xing's ice skates". i dunno why; she KNOWS i nefur put my dainty paws in ice or snow!!

holed up!

igmu! you better be careful--i don't think nitro's lasers are set on stun!!

08 October 2010

i know NUTHING!!!

honest, mom!! i dunno nuthin' 'bout nocat knockin' ofur the pile of stuff onna footstool!! i'm lookin' an' lookin' an' i don't see no villaincats nowhere!!!!

3-cat night

it was furry cold last night--a 3-cat night!
well, ok; one of them was the dbd's nasty-lookin' squirrel (rocky), but nitro & ed like him better than iggy, acause rocky don't bite their ears or shove 'em over to hog the best spots on dad's lap!!

05 October 2010

toezies

edmund's patient toezies, as they wait to pounce on a crumb of peanut butter sammich! he is polite an' doesn't grab for the sammich, so he gets more than the other, pushier, cats. which is just wrong; initiative should be rewarded!!!!
