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!

This is Amarula’s Selfie Sunday for The Cat On My Head Sunday Blog Hop!

Nap Time Interrupted…Again!

AMARULA: Doh dee doh…oh I am so looking forward to my nap. I got my favorite scratcher beside me and there’s no sign of Frodo nearby (so he can’t interrupt my nap like last time) so I can enjoy a pleasant snooze….

AMARULA: What the…? Where did you come from!?!

AMARULA: Get off my scratcher Zulu!

ZULU: Hey there Amarula. I know how much you hate to nap alone and how much you love to share your things so I thought I would join you. Hehehehe…Pftsssssst!

AMARULA: Do you see what I have to put up with!!

 

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

Week 47: March 31, 2017

 

  1. The first thing I think about in the morning is how can I best terrorize Frodo and Zulu today?

 

  1. The last thing I think about before sleep is _Have I done enough to terrorize Frodo and Zulu today?

 

  1. I am looking forward to finally finding my passport and returning to South Africa from whence the Human stole me (naturally I would have to burn Frodo and Zulu’s passport to make sure they don’t follow me there!).

 

  1. I am so pleased when at the end of the day I’ve gotten lots of attention, treats and mice and I can fall asleep knowing that the day has been all about me and I’ve really put the “I” in tortie once again!

We’re Winners!

FRODO: You may remember that a couple of weeks ago 15andmeowing had a contest to give away a St. Patty’s Day catnip-filled mat as well as some catnip toys and we won! I was so happy! Amarula sometimes calls me a loser so I wasn’t sure I was eligible to enter a contest but it seems like I am in fact a WINNER! Well, I should calm down…Amarula, Zulu and me are ALL winners!

FRODO: We were so excited when the package arrived. It smelled so good!

FRODO: I went a little crazy by the smell of the catnip mat and tried to stick my head right in the envelope!

FRODO: Amarula and I had a bit of a “discussion” over who should get the mat first and I won!

AMARULA: You didn’t win! I gave you a raspberry and left! I decided that the best gift of all was the fact that the mat would keep you distracted and you would leave me alone!

ZULU: I loved the catnip toys the best! I had so much fun throwing them in the air and showing them who was boss!

FRODO: Meanwhile the catnip-filled mat did seem to drive me a little crazy!

MEOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!

FRODO: Finally I laid by the fire with my our new mat

FRODO: The I asked mom to tuck me in…

…it was heaven!

FRODO: At one point I wanted to be closer to the fire but did not want to leave my blankie!!

FRODO: Finally Zulu came ot join me by the fire and we had a nap in the blankie! It was a great day. Thanks 15andmeowing!

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

The cats all want to wish you a happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

AMARULA: Speak for yourself! I don’t want to wish anyone anything! And certainly not a happy day!

AMARULA: Get this off me…oh the indignity!

AMARULA: That’s right human… just a little closer…just get a little closer and you’ll be drinking green beer in the emergency room!

ZULU: You who…over here…mom…take my photo!

ZULU: Oh no my eyes were closed! Try again!

ZULU: Oh yeah! That’s my good side…hey ladies! Now let’s try one with the hat too!!

ZULU: I almost feel bad that one cat can look so darn good!

AMARULA: Ha! You look like a cross between a pimp and the Green Goblin Zulu!

ZULU: Quiet Amarula! You’re just jealous of my inner suaveness and gorgeousness! Hey Ladies!

…and then there’s Frodo…he partied just a little too hard on green catnip…

FRODO: Happy St Patty’s day!

IMPORTANT: pls visit fellow cat blogger Frimousse’s site (lives in France) he was just diagnosed with cancer and is not doing well!

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

  1. The oldest item in my home is the mouse I hid behind the fridge that the human has still not found!
  2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is _see above (yep, I also hid one IN the refrigerator!).
  3.  My family heritage is NOT the result of a co-mingling of road tar and a pumpkin exploding (as Zulu would have you believe) Rather my heritage includes some African lion, Tasmanian devil and wild boar with just a dash of stallion (that’s where I get my effortless grace from)
  4. My favorite family tradition is beating up on Zulu and Frodo…ok ok I admit it’s not actually an allowable family tradition BUT IT SHOULD BE!

Selfie Sunday: Winter…It’s Back!!!!

YESTERDAY:

AMARULA: This is wonderful! The best March ever! Record breaking warm temperatures! I can start going outside again and resume terrorizing the neighborhood…no more locked in the house, trapped with those nincompoops Zulu and Frodo! There is a God! Yippee!!

24 HOURS LATER: ….

AMARULA: What the H@!#??… It’s back?!…Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

This is Amarula’s Selfie Sunday!
