The Tender Side Of Amarula: Chin Scratches and Tummy Rubs!


Amarula would not want any of you to know this but–despite how she acts around Zulu and Frodo and how “ferocious” she likes to appear even regarding “the Human”–she is a very tender cat. One of her favorite things in the world is for me to hold her in my lap with her tummy exposed while she gets tummy rubs or chin scritches.

She especially loves when she gets tummy scratches while sitting with me outside watching the squirrels.

She positively melts when I rub her chin!

AMARULA: Hey! You’re not photographing this are you? I have a reputation to uphold!

Shhhhh. Don’t tell Amarula you know her secret!

Amarula and Zulu: New Best Friends?

ZULU: Hey Amarula. What ya doing in there? Come out and play.

AMARULA: No! Leave me alone. I am busy sulking because the Human refuses to get rid of that stupid puppy Busy! He is the bane of my existence.


ZULU: I thought Frodo and I were the bane of your existence?

AMARULA: You are! My enemies are legion!

ZULU: You know that Busy went back to his owners a few days ago, right?

AMARULA: What did just say?!?!

AMARULA: Why was I not informed the dog left!? I have been hanging out with you in this room cause I thought the puppy was still here!

ZULU: But hasn’t this bonding time been nice, oh ill-tempered tortie?

AMARULA: Only if by nice you mean torture! I am outta here!

ZULU: Come on! Don’t leave angry! Come play.

AMARULA: I can’t even look at you right now!

AMARULA: Human! Look me in the eyes and promise me you will never take in another puppy!!

Selfie Sunday: I Am Not In the Mood!

AMARULA: As long as that hideous creature Busy continues to trespass in my territory you will get no happy selfies from me! (Thank God he goes home in a few days!)

AMARULA: The nincompoop doesn’t even notice my death stares!

AMARULA: But I will happily show off my fluffy tail of terror (which the idiot also ignores)!

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

Zulu and Amarula: Working Together To Destroy A Common Enemy?

ZULU: Doh…dee…doh…Busy the puppy is having a nap so I can come out of the basement and …wink…wink…spend time with my ladies! You know who you are…

AMARULA: There you are Zulu! I’ve been looking everywhere for you. I can’t believe I am saying this but I need your help!

ZULU: What?!?! Have you been into the extra-strength catnip again you Tortie Terror?

AMARULA: No you idiot! We have to get rid of that puppy Busy! Look behind me.

AMARULA: Do you see that big box with the “Caution Heavy” stickers on it?  (Thank God for the human’s addiction to Amazon) I have devised a plan to lure the puppy here and we can both push it over so it lands on him (whispering…and if it lands on Frodo too even better!)…hold on…wait a minute…what is he doing here…

AMARULA: FRODO! Get out of here! Be gone foul demon! I blame you and your overly loving personality for this puppy mess!

ZULU: Boy did you send Frodo running! Look Amarula, as much as I agree that dog has to go, I am occupied at the moment trying to pose charmingly for the camera! Speaking of my good looks…do you think this pillow makes me looks fat?

AMARULA: Oh Brother!! Why do I even bother!? I can’t believe you Zulu!

ZULU: So just to be clear….is that a yes or no on the pillow making me look fat?

AMARULA: Do you see what I am dealing with here? I think I have changed my mind about who I am going to push that box onto!

AMARULA: I can’t even look at you right now!

ZULU: Really? That’s too bad cause I am looking incredibly cute….

Week 51: April 28, 2017

  1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is my life story. Granted I have not written it yet but clearly with my intelligence and penchant for drama, as well as my mystique, it would clearly be a bestseller.
  2. If I could afford a billboard, it would say Busy the puppy: free to a good home! Willing to throw in two cats as well (doesn’t even have to be a good home!)
  1. I have a hard time    being modest: I am just so good looking and intelligent! How can I be modest!?    
  1. I really enjoy  terrorizing Frodo and Zulu, and of course Busy the pup who the human is babysitting –thank God he goes home in a few days!!
