Cats Going Stir Crazy

ZULU: I need to get out of the house! Look how sunny it is out–there is no way that that white stuff is snow! Just cause the human is in quarantine doesn’t mean I need to be.

ZULU: Wow Frodo. I didn’t see you out there, move over so I can come out too!

FRODO: Let me in! Let me in! Zulu, the sun has betrayed us! That white stuff is indeed snow!

ZULU: How could Mother Nature do that to us!?

Happy Holidays!

MERRY Holidays!

FRODO: Is it just me or can anyone else hear a bell jingle whenever I move my head?

ZULU: I love Christmas cause red is really my color! Don’t you ladies agree?

AMARULA: I really hope you like this sweater human. Cause it’s the last thing you’re ever gonna see once I get my claws on you!

Frodo Makes A Run For It (again)!

FRODO: I don’t know why mom won’t give us supervised outdoor time in the winter like she does in the summer. Luckily I was able to escape onto the porch when she took out the garbage! It’s not so bad out here. Although I can kinda see why Amarula doesn’t like this white stuff…it is quite chilly….

FRODO: OK, I’m ready to come in now! Open up!

FRODO: Helloooooooo?!?! Anybody home?

FRODO: MOM?! Hurry up and open the door! Or your favorite creamsicle is gonna become a CreamICICLE!

Amarula Barks Up The Wrong Tree

AMARULA: Why have I never climbed a tree before? This is wonderful! I can see my entire domain from here.

AMARULA: And it’s a great scratching post!

AMARULA: Here me roar! I am queen of the world!

AMARULA: Wow! That is actually a long way down.

AMARULA: How the heck did I get up here! Why doesn’t this tree come with a ladder??

AMARULA: Someone better call the fire department cause that’s the only way I’m getting down from here!

Frodo Gets Led Astray (Again)

FRODO: As you know, my new bestie Tony (the neighbor’s cat and Play-Doh’s brother) has been visiting me a lot lately! I love spending time with him! He seems to have a higher tolerance for my companionship than my other besties and siblings Zulu and Amarula!

FRODO: I love following him around. For some reason his humans let him go everywhere! So I just knew he would lead me on a great adventure like…GASP…BEYOND THE FENCE……

FRODO: I tried to return when I heard mom yell for me to stop! I really did! But what’s a daredevil, dapper orange mancat gonna do when he hears adventure call!?

FRODO: He answers of course!

FRODO: So I pretended not to hear mom and followed Tony into the Great Unknown!

FRODO: It was amazing to watch Tony in adventure mode! I have so much to learn! Sadly, mom quickly came and brought me inside. She was not pleased that I went beyond the fence!

FRODO: So I am gonna wait by the window and hope for Tony to return so we can go off again on another exploration of the Great Unknown!

Sherlock Hopeless Pet Detective: Part 3 Mission Accomplished!

AMARULA (aka Sherlock Hopeless Pet Detective): As you may recall, last Monday I had finally cornered my greatest nemesis: Play-Doh (that’s right, as in that sticky, clay-like stuff kids love to play with!). Scuttlebutt among the neighborhood cats is that’s the ridiculous name her human’s gave her! Humans can be so cruel! Hee hee!

weak-start

AMARULA:  I will be frank. She proved to be a greater foe than I imagined. She has nerves of steel! Neither of us proved victorious for the sidewalk showdown so we had to take the competition up a notch! It was time for the dreaded “Bouncy Belly Beatdown”. In this fierce battle maneuver, both cats display their bellies in a competition to see whose is the cutest and most rubbable. She started the Bouncy Belly Beatdown:

who-has-most-rubbable-belly

AMARULA: She was off to a weak start…

show-off-playing-up-to-camera

AMARULA: But pretty quickly she starting giving it her all by exposing what even I must admit is a very rubbable belly!

close-up-please-pet-detectiv-mission-accomplished-i-am-victorious

AMARULA: So then I showed her my stuff! Close up please…

belly-cute

AMARULA: Have you ever seen a cuter tummy? And look at that exquisite toe curl! Then I just flash my emerald green eyes and no one can resist me! I mean it’s incredible, right?!

stare-down

AMARULA: Finally we had to admit that both our tummies were incredibly cute and call a tie. So we moved on to the final competition: the Staredown!

gaze-of-terror-pet-detective

AMARULA: She gave it a noble effort…

sent-her-running

AMARULA: But finally she had to admit defeat! I was victorious! The streets, sidewalks and backyards of the neighborhood were once again mine!

ran-away-in-fear

AMARULA: Look at her run in fear (well, alright, maybe not so much run as saunter)! She was a worthy opponent who fought fairly so we came to a compromise that she could visit MY backyard once a week. At other times…

her-side-of-the-fence

AMARULA: She has to stay on her side of the fence!

AMARULA: Where she and Frodo can stare longingly at one another from a distance!

Sherlock Hopeless Pet Detective: Part 2 Sidewalk Showdown!

sherlock-hopeless-cat-detective

AMARULA  (aka Sherlock Hopless Pet Detective): Well, I did it! Phffffft to all you naysayers! I told you I would track down that sneaky feline who has been coming into MY backyard to hang with Frodo and I did it! While my extensive investigative search a few weeks ago proved fruitless, (I simply could not concentrate because I always felt like I was being followed!) this week was much more successful!

patroling-the-streets-sidewalks-pet-detective

AMARULA: I was doing my regular neighborhood-watch patrol of my sidewalks, minding my own business….

sidewalk-confrontation

AMARULA: When Blam! She jumped out of a pile of leaves!

fancy-footwork2

AMARULA: I relied on my lighting-like reflexes and used some of that fancy footwork us torties are known for to avoid the fluffy ball of danger! Yet she persisted in following me! Did the idiot not realize that I intended to introduce her to my “Paws of Death” to persuade her to stay away from my backyard!? Clearly all that fluff has gone her head!

sidewalk-showdow-pet-detective

AMARULA: Well, I hated to do it, but clearly this was going to call for some serious feline ferociousness! It was time for the dreaded Sidewalk Showdown!

sidewalk-showdown

AMARULA: The goal is to protect your side of the sidewalk until one feline gives way and admits the other’s superiority. It ain’t pretty folks and can get quite fierce! You may want to hide your children and look away…

get-comfy-this-could-take-awhile

AMARULA: Dear readers, you may want to get comfy… this could take awhile…to be continued…

Catting Around: A First Date!

AMARULA: So I told you earlier this week about the handsome tomcat I met when the human and I went on our walk…

dreamy

AMARULA: His name is Charlie. Isn’t he dreamy (but don’t tell him I said so)!!

invited me on a walk

AMARULA: Well, we went on our first date yesterday! He invited me on a walk. (Now pay attention ladies and you might learn something about proper dating etiquette)

stayed a respectable distance behind

AMARULA: He was a perfect gentleman. And I kept enough distance behind him to make it clear that I was a proper lady and expected to be wooed!

lookaway

AMARULA: Naturally I looked away every time he looked back to appear disinterested. I didn’t want him to realize how smitten I really was.

wentbacktohisplace

AMARULA: After the walk we went back to his place to hang out.

mybestcomehitherlook

AMARULA: Finally, I figured it was time to send a clear signal that I was interested! So I gave him my best moves and batted my eyelashes and looked all coquettish.

ohplease

AMARULA: He then showed me his best moves (and his belly)!

first kiss

AMARULA: And finally I figured he deserved a kiss! I can’t wait to see him again! Meowwwwww!
