Amarula Meets Frodo’s New Friend

AMARULA: What the heck!? What is that thing in Zulu’s tunnel?

AMARULA: Sweet God! It’s a cat! It must be that menace that Frodo has befriended and Zulu is still hiding in the basement from.

AMARULA: Oh no! It has the same dull, naive and friendly look in its eyes that Frodo does! I do not need another Frodo in my life!

AMARULA: The dullard actually appears to be moving closer to me! It seems to have no fear or common sense at all! Why is it not quaking like a leaf as I give it my best Amarula-Terrifying-Tortie death stare??

AMARULA: I gotta get otta here! I can’t take more Frodo-friendly visitors. I’m gonna make a call to the Humane Society and alert them that there is a dull-witted cat in need of rescue in my backyard!

The Best Seat In The House

ZULU: Mom’s lap is always the best seat in the house!

ZULU: And after my brave investigative efforts on Monday, mom rewarded me by letting me sit in her lap for a whole afternoon!!

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

1. October is the perfect time to _celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving which is on Monday Oct 9 this year! The human always gives us some turkey!!

2. Halloween _is the best night to terrorize young children and steal their candy! I am so dark they don’t see me when I stand in front of their feet to trip them! Boo! Mwahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

3. Every October, I  start plotting out how I am gonna get my passport and papers in order so I can fly back to South Africa (from where the Human stole me from the streets) and avoid the upcoming Canadian winter.

4. My experience with the supernatural world is plenty!! Cause I am SUPER and ALL NATURAL! (unlike Zulu who has had work done–and don’t let him tell you otherwise)!

Psssssssssst! Frodo Has A Secret!

FRODO: Zulu, come closer I gotta tell you a real important secret.

ZULU: I don’t like the look in your eyes Frodo! I have fallen for that one too many times!

FRODO: No really, Zulu, just move in a little closer…it’s real, real important

FRODO: Gotcha!! Now I am gonna slobber you with kisses! It works every time!

ZULU: Not the ears! Not the ears!

  1. I would never be friends with someone who… what is this thing you call “friend”? I don’t understand. I have worshipers only.
  2. I will never refuse __to speak about myself– that would just be cruel to a world that so desperately needs to hear about my greatness!_
  3. I have never been to __Cat Island in Japan , but  I know they would make me their queen if I ever visited!!
  4. When it comes to   __what I want most right now   , I  think most about Phoebe from 15andmeowing who is not feeling well and I (along with Frodo and Zulu) send her and her family lots of love!! It’s the only thing the three of us can agree on!

Play-Doh Returns For Another Visit

AMARULA: I heard the human throw the cat food bag down the back stairs. I ran because she always lets me lick the bag before she puts it in the trash but what did I see?? That neighborhood menace Play-Doh  had the same idea!

AMARULA: Looks like it was gonna be a show-down….

AMARULA: But as I had just given myself an extensive bath, I decided to let the nincompoop have it! But the human really must do something to ensure the neighbor’s cat ceases his trespassing!

AMARULA: He then went into MY catnip patch!

AMARULA: And he proceeded to roll around and have way too much fun!

AMARULA: Naturally, Zulu (aka fraidy cat) sat on the porch and observed Play-Doh with a mixture of fear and interest.

AMARULA: The Creamsicle Cretin, as to be expected, was ecstatic that Play-Doh had returned for a visit.

AMARULA: And they spent the day together smelling catnip! Won’t someone save me from this madness!??

Being The Boss Is Hard Work

AMARULA: Why am I napping you might ask? Because I have spent the day overseeing the construction of the neighbor’s deck…and it does NOT meet with my approval. They refused to take any of my suggestions!

AMARULA: Where are the scratching posts? Where is the flat-screen TV to watch my favorite Garfield reruns?

AMARULA: And where are the private alcoves for litter boxes?

AMARULA: Humans just have no sense of aesthetics and decor!

Week 70: September 8, 2017

  1. September bucket list:  1) torment Frodo, 2)  torment Zulu , 3) repeat 1 and 2
    2. If I came with a warning label, it would say something along the lines of that quote by Joanne Clancy — ‘Be the kind of woman feline who, when your feet hit the floor each morning, the devil says Oh, no! She’s up.’
  2. Truth be told, what is this thing you call Truth?? Sounds like something I would eat for breakfast!
  3. I would rather give up Friskies tuna treats for a week then endure another Canadian snow-filled winter!

 

Mancat Monday: Frodo’s Love is Back!

AMARULA: You may remember that last year we had a serious trespasser in MY backyard domain: Play-doh. Frodo promptly fell in love with Play-Doh (who belongs to the neighbor and who we have since discovered is a male cat…but I don’t plan to tell Frodo that…Frodo falls in love at the drop of a hat. I don’t think gender is of concern to him). Well, reader you will be happy to know that I have not seen the miscreant this summer. I have been patrolling my domain and you can rest easy knowing that we will not have to run into that troublemaker….

 

Are you so sure Amarula?

FRODO: Well, I know my big sis Amarula was never a fan but I sure miss my good pal Play-Doh. I wonder what she is up to?

AMARULA: Play-Doh! Noooooooooooooooooooo! I give up! I am outta here!

FRODO: Is that really you Play-Doh!?

FRODO: Yeah! It is you! Yippee! Let’s play!

FRODO: What do you mean you have to go already?

FRODO: Well, then give me a kiss goodbye!

FRODO: And then off Play-Doh went through the fence to her side of the world.

FRODO: Come again soon!
