Basket Case!

FRODO: Though I love my new friend Busy, sometimes a feline needs just a little personal space, and though he asked to share my basket with me I  felt I had to say no cause that’s my big brother Zulu’s spot (which I am sure he will reclaim once he comes out of hiding in the basement away from Busy!)

FRODO: Busy did his best to look cute…but I had to say no

FRODO: Finally Busy saw I meant business…

FRODO:…and claimed his spot at my side…but on the floor! Amarula would be proud of me!

It’s A New Cat…No, It’s A Piglet…No, It’s A Puppy!?!?

AMARULA: Well, it’s finally happened as I have long predicted! The human lost her marbles. She brought home what I first assumed to be a cat but what now appears to be a cross between a pig and a dog. Apparently it is a French Bulldog. Whatever you call it, I call it ENEMY!

AMARULA: The good news is that apparently the human has not lost her mind completely and is only babysitting the puppy (who goes by the very apt name Busy) for a week. I mean seriously, is this creature even sentient?

AMARULA: Look at the THING! It appears to be too stupid to even fear me! And it’s actually ignoring my giant fluffy tail (clearly a signal to any intelligent beast of its impending demise!) I mean it’s even drinking out of my water bowl! Zulu stop hiding in the basement and get up here! We must work together to beat this atrocity into submission!

ZULU: Sorry can’t help Amarula! I am busy in the basement! And I am not hiding down here! I am amassing an army of mice to help us in destroying the interloper…yeah, that’s it…definitely not hiding…

AMARULA: Coward! Well, one thing is for sure…we can’t under any circumstances let Frodo see Busy the puppy. That creamsicle cream puff is so stupid he might actually befriend the puppy! The nincompoop is too friendly for his own good….oh no…I think it might be too late…

AMARULA: Come on Frodo! Prove yourself to be deserving to be part of the noble Feline Family and show that pup your Claws of Death!

AMARULA: That’s right come on…give that ferocious puppy a good scratching….wait a minute…no no…what are you doing? Don’t do it…DON’T DO IT! Do not roll over….noooooooooooooooooo

AMARULA: I said show him the Claws of Death…not the Tummy of Tenderness! Arrrrrgggghhh!

FRODO: Yipee! A new friend!! I love new friends…and puppies…and Tummies of Tenderness!

Sunday Selfies: The Trio is All Ears For Easter! (Starring the Fabled Tortie Bunny!)

FRODO: Not only has spring arrived and we’re back making visits outside but Mom got us these fantastic bunny ears that I just love wearing! Look at me eating my favorite cat grass — I look just like a real Easter bunny!

AMARULA: Ha Ha! Look how ridiculous Frodo looks! He actually thinks wearing those ears is fun! This just further supports my argument that he has the IQ of a lampshade!

AMARULA: Oh No! I think the Human has spotted me! She has that look in her eyes! I gotta make a run for it! Nooooooooooooo!

 

FRODO: Zulu come quick! I think we have a rare tortie rabbit in our garden!

ZULU: Man! I don’t know whether to make fun of you or be jealous!

AMARULA: Shut up Zulu! Go away!

ZULU: I bet I would look great in those ears! The blue would set off my fur wonderfully!

AMARULA: The Human has exactly three seconds to get these off me or there’s not gonna be a Happy Easter for anyone!

 

ZULU: Yippee! Look how great I look! Naturally they were too large for my svelte, swan-like neck so Mom put them on me like wings!

ZULU: In my heart I am a (very good looking) flying Easter Bunny! Wheeeee!

ZULU: Yep, I love Easter! Happy Easter Everyone!!

Christmas Comes Late (…or very early) and It’s Great!

We participated in Secret Paws for the first time this year and unfortunately (through no fault of our wonderful Secret Paws gift-giver Pawesome Cats— the gifts were coming all the way from Australia! It says on the package they were mailed end of Nov on one part of the package and the other says…get this…Sept 9, 2015…I think the Australian postal service might need some help…either that or they have the ability to go back in time!!) they arrived just a teensy, weensy, itsy bit late. But the wait was worth it! See for yourself…Yeah Christmas in March!

FRODO: A package for us!? This is so exciting. First we win the St. Patty’s Catnip Mat from 15andMeowing and now this!? What a week!

ZULU: It sure smells good!

AMARULA: Now just wait a minute! Why is this addressed to ALL of us. Surely you two nincompoops can’t be deserving of Christmas presents!

AMARULA: Well I will admit the gifts were beautifully wrapped and came with a lovely card (again, shamefully addressed to Zulu and Frodo as well as myself. I mean really…I don’t even think those two can even read!) It says “Wishing you a happy Christ-mouse from the Pawesome Cats Charlie, Max, Ava, Amber and Mom Tracy!”

AMARULA: It was wonderful!!! Look at all this stuff!

AMARULA: It came with these great snacks!

AMARULA: …and the most colorful, cutest toys we’ve ever seen!

AMARULA: Look how pretty those toys are!! We loved them.

AMARULA: Seriously…I don’t really have to share do I?

AMARULA: Frodo quickly made off with one of the toys and promptly fell asleep with it in his paws!

AMARULA: Of course, fatty Frodo also tried to steal all the Kangaroo treats but I put a stop to that! I have never seen these giant mice called “Kangaroos” but I can indeed attest to their deliciousness! (Seriously we loved them so much that I saw the human checking to see if they –or any form of kangaroo treat– is available in Canada and sadly they are not!!). As soon as we get our feline passports we are all flying down to Australia to thank you personally Pawesome Cats–make sure to have lots of those giant hopping mice treats in supply!

Many Many thanks from all of us! This was the best Late/Very Early Christmas Gift Ever! Thanks Pawesome Cats! You live up to your name! And a HUGE thank you to Paula at Sweet Purrfections for organizing Secret Paws!

Selfie Sunday: Amarula and Her Best Friend Mr. Scratchy

 

AMARULA: As you know, dear readers, I don’t usually like having my photo taken, but after having both Frodo and Zulu trying to use my scratcher, I wanted to take this selfie to have photographic evidence that it is MINE!

AMARULA: I love it. How could I not? My scratcher plays an important role in keeping my nails sharp and in ready condition in case I gotta show my brothers the Claws of Death! It should be noted that, being the generous cat I am, that I am willing to share my scratcher with any fellow tortie who wants to use it to sharpen her nails!! We tortie sisters gotta stick together!
