In the Doghouse: Frodo Goes For A Midnight Snack

THE HUMAN: Alright, which one of you cats got into the fridge when I left the door open and knocked the water bottle to the floor?

ZULU: Not me! I’m too busy keeping my nails sharp in case Amarula is in one of her “moods”

AMARULA: Please! I don’t snack! I have to keep my figure looking good for all my male cat fans like Bear and Veikko and so many many more! Though I may have told a certain orange menace that you love when food falls out of the fridge onto the floor cause it makes it easier for you to find it! Mwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

THE HUMAN: Frodo, was it you?

FRODO: No way mom! Not me!

THE HUMAN: Really, cause the evidence seems pretty damning!

FRODO: Maybe if I don’t make eye contact she won’t notice me!

FRODO: Woo Hoo, I’m king of the world! I can practically see the whole house from here!

FRODO: Look at all the food choices! Why do I only get tuna flavored dry or wet food?

FRODO: Oh oh! How do I get down from here?

Three’s Company!?

ZULU: Wake up Frodo sleepyhead. Time to get this Friday started!

ZULU: What the heck!!?? You won’t believe this Frodo but Amarula actually slept beside us all night! That’s a first!

AMARULA: WTF?! My head is groggy. Where am I?! I knew I had too much catnip last night!

FRODO: YEAH!! We are all together! This is the best morning ever!!

AMARULA: Oh Brother! Kill me now!

AMARULA: I can’t believe I woke up beside you idiots! I will never live this down!

ZULU: Pssssst Frodo, I bet Amarula would LOVE one of your famous Good Morning Wake-Up Hugs!!

AMARULA: I’m otta here!

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

  1. When I am nervous, I beat up Frodo and/or Zulu.
  2. When I an angry, I see above
    3. Today, I know for sure see above.
  3. For St. Patrick’s day, I know the human will try to put me in a ridiculous outfit!




Amarula Steals The Spotlight

AMARULA: Oh my! The spotlight on little old me! I’m honored!

AMARULA: Oh, who’s kidding who?! We all know I was born to steal the spotlight!

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

  1. My favorite Dr. Seuss book is _The Cat in The Hat of course. We torties are so lucky that we look good in everything, including hats! Imagine a dog trying to wear a hat! Never! They would look ridiculous. Unlike us felines, they lack the dignity and elegant bone structure to carry it off!
  2. The most interesting person I have ever met is I will give you a clue…a see her every time I look in the mirror!
  3. Besides books by Dr. Seuss, my favorite book as a child was though I have not actually read it yet, I assume I would love 101 Dalmatians. Apparently, Cruella De Vil takes a bunch of Dalmatian dogs to make a coat. It sounds marvelous! I can’t think of a better use for a canine!
  4. Lately, I have been working on my memoirs. I plan to call it: A Feline Opines: The Sage Musings of A Misunderstood Mouser. Send money now for your autographed copy!

It’s Quitting Time!

Amarula has a special way of letting me know when she thinks I’ve been working too long and it’s time to call it a night!

AMARULA: What part of quitting time do you not understand human?

AMARULA: How could this computer possibly hold your interest more than me?

AMARULA: Clearly it’s time for the stink eye.

AMARULA: Don’t think ignoring me will work! I’m digging in my heels!

AMARULA: What part of “pet me NOW” don’t you understand? I am perfectly prepared to “deposit” a little “present” on your desk if you continue to ignore me!

AMARULA: I said NOW! Look closely into my eyes! Do I look like patience is one of my virtues?

HUMAN: All right! You win Amarula, I’m done for the night.

AMARULA: I always win! Mwwwwwhaha!

Amarula’s Between A Rock and A Hard Place

AMARULA: There’s danger to the right of me and danger to the left of me and I don’t know where to turn! Help!

Amarula also wants to thanks Bear (and his human) from Momma Kat and her Bear Cat Blog for nominating one of her posts (Monday Madness: Amarula Has Cabin Fever!) ” in the “Best Pet Humor Blog ” category in the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose awards! Amarula is honored just to be nominated!!! Thanks!

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

AMARULA: Thank goodness the human got her computer fixed in time for me to offer my erudite and oh-so-drole answers to the fill-ins! She apologizes for not being able to post or visit blogs for the last week!

  1. My favorite president is the president of the “Vote Amarula for President” club because naturally, I am the president (and the only member if I’m being honest).
  2. This weekend, I have plans to shred, maim, nap, nap, nap, cough hairballs up on Frodo while he sleeps, nap, nap, poop in Zulu’s favorite bed by the fire, nap, nap, revel in my tortiness, nap.
  3. I love my fur coloring. Though Zulu describes it as “something that Halloween threw up” I believe I look resplendent!
  4. I believe in Tortietude!

Amarula Has A Cold Snap!

AMARULA: Sigh……..

AMARULA: Why can’t I escape the feeling that this never-ending winter thing…

AMARULA: Is somehow Zulu and Frodo’s fault??

AMARULA: I think I’m gonna go find them and whappity whap them back into summer!

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

1. Trust a tortie at your peril! Mwhahahahahahaha….

2. I would protest WOULD?!?! You mean DO! Protesting is pretty much my life! In fact, I protest this fill-in!!

3. I have hidden a dead mouse in the kitchen cupboard. The human has been asking “what’s that funny smell” since  “ last Tuesday!” I have to do something to amuse myself through the winter!

4. Right now, I would kill for a Bailey’s Irish Cream to help warm me up! I wonder where that human hid the key to the liquor cabinet this time! I vehemently protest the locking of the liquor cabinet!!

You Know It’s Winter When….

You know it’s winter when Amarula actually doesn’t mind hanging out (for very short periods) with her brothers! Although Frodo did ruin it a second later by going in for a hug! The little guy never learns!

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

  1. I have never been able to _get used to using an indoor litter box. Those contraptions are for felines who are trapped inside cat-containment units (aka houses) not for free-wheeling felines like myself. Because I won’t go outside I have to use them in the winter…But I don’t like it!!! And I show my displeasure by throwing litter everywhere! Ha ha!
  2. I wish I could still smell the ocean air in Cape Town, Africa. It was a hard life being a street cat in South Africa but at least I had no snow and the air always smelled oceany! (Though I will grudgingly admit Canadian air smells pretty nice too! Don’t tell the human I said that!). 
  3. March 19th (the last official day of winter) is my ideal winter night.
  4. Zulu and Frodo get more interesting the longer I am trapped indoors through the winter (don’t tell the human or those two dunderheads I said that). Occasionally I even try to play with them for about five seconds. Then I come to my senses, shake off my winter fever, and give them a good swift wappity whap.

Amarula Gets Cold Feet

AMARULA: I don’t care how cold it is outside. I needed to get out. I can’t stand being locked in that house with Zulu and Frodo. Cold as it is out here, at least I can have some time to myself….

But someone had other ideas……

AMARULA: Do you ever have that feeling that someone is watching you….

FRODO: Hey sis! You forgot to tell me you were going outside! Good thing I found you

AMARULA: No!!! Who let you out?

FRODO: Don’t worry! I won’t let you out of my sight Big Sis!

AMARULA: This is my tiny patch of gravel. Go away!

FRODO: So do ya wanna build a snowman?

AMARULA: I give up! Maybe if I stand in the snow long enough I will get hypothermia and lapse into a coma. Wake me when summer returns!

Amarula: Go Ahead, Make My Day

AMARULA: Hey what are you doing? Stop taking photos I am trying to nap.

AMARULA: Yes I know I look cute but leave me in peace!…. On second thought, I was being harsh. Please forgive me. In fact, why don’t you move in closer….that’s right.

AMARULA: Closer….I’ll even let you rub my belly. Don’t you wanna rub my belly? Come on…

AMARULA: Just a little closer…my belly is waiting. Of course, you can trust me! Would I lie to you!?

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

  1. My guiding word principle for 2018 is: “It’s time to turbo-charge the Tortitude!”
  2. A house is not a home without a: rotting mouse carcass on every floor (extra points if the human can smell it but just can’t find it! Heh Heh!).
  3. I look forward to: continuing my reign of terror in and out of the house this year.
  4. I really need to have a one-on-one with Mother Nature, because this winter is lasting way too long and being indoors for so long is not good for my figure!
