Zulu: My Fav Coworker!

ZULU is one of my favorite coworkers. He loves sitting near me as I work on the computer.

He is a conscientious colleague. He makes sure to groom so he always looks his best.

Though I will admit that he does get playful and can be very distracting

ZULU: Of course I’m distracting. Look at me I’m gorgeous. I’m amazed you can get any work done at all with me nearby!

NOTE: I am headed to South Africa and will be traveling in Southern Africa for about a month so you may not hear from me until early May! Despite Amarula’s protests I am refusing to bring her with me to return her back to her native country but I have promised her that I will not bring back another South African stray.

AMARULA: Look me in the eyes and promise me you won’t be bringing back any more felines! One South African tortie per household only!

Love is in The Air

You may recall from my post a few weeks ago that there is a neighbourhood cat named Harry who is really trying to win over the gang and convince them he could be their new best friend!

Frodo is on board and wants to invite Harry inside for a play date but Zulu and Amarula (in a rare moment of agreement) are definitely not in the mood for Harry’s love and friendship.

FRODO: Let’s invite Harry in! He is such a handsome cat it’s like I am looking into a mirror

ZULU: No way! I am outta here

ZULU: Now he is making house calls at night too!? Intolerable!

FRODO: Come on squeeze through the bars Harry!

AMARULA: If that orange menace comes any closer I am going to use him as my own personal scratching post

HARRY: Come on let me in! I love visiting all the neighbours!

Amarula On A Rainy Day

Amarula loves to sit on the porch and survey her domain. Sadly she doesn’t like doing so on rainy days!

AMARULA: Stop staring at me and do something about all this rain! You know it’s time for my neighbourhood rounds which I can’t do if it’s raining.

AMARULA: You don’t want to see what happens when a tortie gets wet! Trust me!

Amarula Goes Birding

Amarula loves patrolling my hummingbird feeders to look for snacks. She insists she’s just protecting her territory from invaders.

They are so fast that Amarula has never even gotten close to catching one! (and she’s actually quite frightened by the quick buzzing noise their wings make–though she would never admit it!)

AMARULA: They look so yummy!

I’ve got my eye on you Amarula!

Zulu Interrupted!

ZULU: Feast your eyes ladies! Yes I really am this handsome–no photo editing!

ZULU: And I always make sure I look my best with extra grooming

AMARULA: No one is interested Zulu. We all know who the real beauty is in this house!

ZULU: Why must you always interrupt my photo shoots Amarula!

ZULU: Is someone going to remove the tortie!!??

AMARULA: I’m ready for my closeup!

Oh No! Roadblock!

Every once in awhile Amarula uses Frodo’s catio (she rarely uses it because she is the only cat allowed outside on her own) and then sits at a spot where no one can pass her to get into the main part of the catio. While I am sure this is certainly not a passive aggressive manoeuvre on her part (wink wink!) it is still very inconvenient for the other kitties (namely Frodo) who need to pass her to get into the catio!

FRODO: Mom as you can see we’ve got a bit of a situation here! I know Amarula loves me to bits (how could she not?) but she does tend to get “slappy” and “hissy” when I ask her to share her space! Or, come to think of it, any time I speak to her at all.

FRODO: And as you can see, she pretty much takes up ALL the space and doesn’t leave a passing lane! What’s a kitty to do??

FRODO: Please mom…could you ask her to move for me? Please!
