Home Sweet Home!

I’m back from my trip to Spain! The trio spent about 10 minutes greeting me but an hour checking out the suitcase! They each had their own typical reaction to my return…

ZULU: You went all the way to Spain and didn’t bring me back a Flamenco outfit?!

FRODO: Yeah! So glad mom is back. I’m going to stay in the suitcase so you have to take me with you on your next trip!

AMARULA: What do you mean you didn’t bring me back a Spanish mouse or even some Spanish cat nip? I am not amused.

Wordless Wednesday: When the Cat’s Away….

(Not quite so) Wordless Wednesday: When the cat’s away the mice will play! Let’s check in on the cats and see what they are up to while the human is traveling in Spain…

Zulu is discovering new and exciting things…

ZULU: What!? No one ever told me there was a mirror up here! The gold frame really sets off my fur! Why would mom not let me up here? I’m never leaving this perch!

As expected, Frodo continues to discover more tangled sleeping positions…

FRODO: Zzzzzzzzz

And Amarula is her usual self…

AMARULA: Where is the human!? Not that I miss her, of course, but someone should be here to worship me 24/7!

Luckily the human is home soon!

Frodo: Guilty or Innocent?

THE HUMAN: Oh oh! Someone got into the catnip! I think it was you Frodo!

FRODO: What makes you think it was me?

FRODO: Well yes, it is catnip that I’m licking off myself at the moment but I don’t know what happened! Honest! I don’t know how I got all covered in it!

FRODO: One minute I was sleeping….And when I woke up I was covered in it!

FRODO: But it just doesn’t make sense! Who would wanna frame little ole me??

Who indeed…(look closely under the chair!)

PS: The human is away for the next two weeks –she will try to post sometimes but please forgive her if she can’t make comments on your blogs as often as usual!

Amarula Has A Nose For Trouble!

AMARULA: What’s that you say?

AMARULA: My Tortie nose is so cute you want to touch it?

AMARULA: Go ahead, pet my nose. Don’t be put off my the fact that it’s incredibly close to my pointy teeth. You can trust me…

Here are Amarula’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader! We are also joining Feline Friday from Comedy Plus.


1. Luring humans into a false sense of security and getting them to do something stupid like pet my nose is one of my many talents.

2. I am ready for winter to be over. Enough already!
3. I have a hard time being modest due to my overwhelming intelligence and beauty. Clearly, Frodo and Zulu can’t sympathize with my “burden”.

4.Being Tortielicious is easy for me.

Amarula Is All Ears For Easter!

AMARULA:  Someone phone the Cruelty Against Torties hotline and get me otta here! Oh the shame!

Here are Amarula’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader! We are also joining Feline Friday from Comedy Plus.

  1. For Easter ( or Passover), I plan to focus on the EAT in Easter and take a bite otta my human for putting me in this stupid outfit!!
  2. My favorite Easter ( or Passover) treat is bunnies of course—but not the chocolate variety if you know what I mean!
  3. Lately, the song Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Seen‘ by Louis Armstrong is stuck in my head. For obvious reasons!
  4. The A-Z Blogging Challenge….. the alphabet is a human construct that I don’t subscribe to. The only thing I need to communicate with are my claws! And I am sharpening them right now….

 

Mancat Monday: Worship Me!

It’s a Monday and Zulu likes starting off the week by being admired!

ZULU: Am I good-looking or what?

ZULU: Louder I can’t hear you!

ZULU: I belong in the spotlight!

ZULU: It’s hard sometimes to be so good looking…..

AMARULA: Oh Brother! I think I just threw up a little!

ZULU: Quiet Amarula! You’re just jealous!

Faint-Worthy Good News For Frodo, Zulu and Amarula!

 

YEAH! Did you hear the news?! We are proud to announce that we are finalists in the Best Pet Humor Blog category in the 2018 BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards. We are honored to be in such esteemed company as Valentine’s blog Noir Kitty Mews, as well as The Rufus Files and A Dog Walks Into A Bar.  A special thank you goes out to Bear and his momma who nominated us!

The cats’ reaction to the news was in line with what you have come to expect:

Frodo promptly fainted and upon revival shouted out his glee to the whole world…

FRODO: Yahoooooooo! They like us, they really like us!! I love everybody!!

ZULU: Contact my agent! I want new head shots! Oh Yes! I am ready for my close up!

ZULU: Wait a minute…I wonder how many hours of grooming that gives me to prepare before the red carpet!? Better get started!

And Amarula was all Tortie:

AMARULA: Nominated? Humor, you say? Do they mean funny or funny-looking cause with Frodo and Zulu one can’t be sure! But go ahead, you may kiss my paw.

AMARULA: Now be off so I may dream of my acceptance speech.

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

  1. I am the _________________ in my family. I can’t answer that question cause family implies that I am in some way related to Frodo the Creamsicle Cretin and Zulu the Dunderheaded Dandy. We Torties are a world apart!
  2. I have _see above_ sibling(s).
  3. I am looking forward to patrolling the snowless (thank God) streets once again and reminding the neighborhood cats who’s boss this Spring.
  4. The first sign of Spring this year was the human pulling out that insipid and undignified, bell-strewn Birdsafe collar she makes me wear to protect the birds when I go outside. If she tries to put that on me again the birds won’t be the only ones who need protection!

 

(Birdbesafe collar–they look funny but they seem to work!)
