A Family that Plays (or Fights?) Together, Stays Together

 

ZULU: February 20 in some provinces across Canada is a holiday called “Family Day.” So in honor of this special day, all three of us felines have gotten together (a very rare occasion to get all three of us together!) for a family portrait

ZULU: Now isn’t this nice? All of us getting along. Now Frodo you have to try to curb your need to play with Amarula so we can get some photos taken…Frodo….Frodo?

ZULU: Frodo, you’re getting that look in your eyes again…

FRODO: But I just know Amarula wants a hug and is just too shy to ask…

ZULU: Oh no…

AMARULA: You have exactly three seconds to remove your paw from my belly before I release my tortitude on your as…

ZULU: Frodo…You better stop…actually, you know what…go ahead, this could be fun…I’ll just sit back here and watch the action…

FRODO: Who wants a hug….? Come and get it…


AMARULA: Nooooooooooooooooooo

FRODO: See Amarula! Aren’t hugs wonderful!?

AMARULA: I hate Family Day!

ZULU: Hee Hee. I love family day!!

FRODO: I wouldn’t trade my family for the whole world!!

Winter! Could it Get Any Worse? (Oh yes it can)!

Amarula: Winter! Just look at all that cold and snow. It looks like it will never end and I am stuck inside until it does! At least things can’t get any worse…

AMARULA: What the…Frodo when did you sneak up behind me! This is MY winter viewing platform!

FRODO: Hey there big sis! Isn’t winter wonderful? Since you aren’t going out much we get to spend so much more quality time together

AMARULA: I would take issue with the word quality

FRODO: I have a whole list of things we can do together now that you’re inside so much. I’ve even set aside time for extra hugs and those play fights that you seem to love so much! We can nap together, eat together, use the litter box together, sit by the fire together…

 

AMARULA: I think I will wait outside for spring to arrive.

Here are Amarula’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader!

  1. Snow is my number 1 nemesis! (well, actually it’s certainly in the top 3 and vies with Frodo and Zulu for first place depending on my mood!)
  2. My favorite kind of soup is chicken of course with Goldfish crackers! Though why humans feel the need to add those horrible vegetables to it is beyond me!
  3. When no one is around, I like to …dance like no one’s watching!
  4. .Catnip is my first love

Some Cats Prefer To Think Outside The Box!

 

ZULU: Frodo sure seemed to love being in his box last week. Maybe I’ll give it a try.

ZULU: Hmm. This isn’t too comfy, I must say. Maybe I’m doing something wrong…

ZULU: Maybe if I just shift over….

ZULU: Nope. Still no good….

ZULU: How did Frodo do it!? I think boxes are just not for me….

 

ZULU: I think I’ll stick with my rocking chair!

Caturday Art: A Box Full of Beauty!

These photos of Caturday art are taken from those photos of flexible Frodo in his crazy positions inside his favorite box from Monday’s post!

 

The above is Edtaonist from Luna Pic

This is Brave (which Frodo definely is cause he just won’t leave Amarula alone until she loves him!) from Luna Pic

This is one of my favs: dark luna from Luna Pic–Frodo — normally an open book–looks very mysterious!

The Art of Compromise

FRODO: Hey there big sis! Wanna play?

AMARULA: No I certainly do not want to play. Now get down from there — you are in my spot! Only I get to sit at the top of the sofa! It is the perfect perch from which to oversee my domain.

FRODO: Come on! Let’s play! Come up here and get me!

AMARULA: Come down at once!

FRODO: Pfffffffffffffffttttttttttt! Come and get me!

AMARULA: How dare you show me the raspberry! You really have no common sense whatsoever do you? You asked for it….

AMARULA: Whack! Bam!

FRODO: Wheeeeeeee

THE HUMAN aka mom: HEY! What the heck are you two doing?!?

A few minutes later….

AMARULA: I can’t believe the human broke up the fight and is making us share the top of the couch! What of my dignity!? What of a respect for my superiority!?

FRODO: Fight?! I thought we were playing! I thought you were trying to tickle me! Oh Amarula, you have the funniest sense of humor! I LOVE YOU!

AMARULA: Silence you creamsicle cretin!

  1. My favorite kind of cookie is _S’mouses (like a S’more but meatier!), chocolate chipmunk cookies and peanut birder cookies.
  2. The famous Mudpie the tortie of course (only a fellow tortie can capture my tortitude and her blog was the first cat blog I read with a tortie as the star–which is of course, our natural role) would play me in a movie about my life.
  3. Love is easy to find! I feel it every time I look in the mirror!
  4. For Valentine’s Day, I just might suspend hostiles between myself and Frodo and Zulu! But Frodo is on real thin ice at the moment!
