AMARULA: The work day begins when I say it begins and right now I have a litter box in need of some attention!

Here are Amarula’s Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs!

  1. Fireworks go off every time I enter a room. My very presence is just that exciting!
  2. My favorite 4th of July picnic food is hotdogs. Sadly, I have since learned that they don’t actually contain dogs.
  3. I begin every day with fireworks. It’s just the way I roll cause I am cool like that!
  4. Unsliced bread_is the best thing since sliced bread. It’s just easier to shove in your mouth when it’s not sliced!

Amarula: Caught In the Act of Being Cute!

AMARULA: Yummy yummy catnip-covered toys!

AMARULA: Hey, What’s going on here?

AMARULA: Did I say you could photograph me in one of my cute, playful moments??

AMARULA: No! I certainly did not! No siree!

  1. My favorite Disney character nemesis is Mickey the Mouse. One day my friend you shall be mine. One day!_
  2. If I could stay any age for life, I would choose to be age _tortie’s are timeless! Age matters not as long as my claws and canines stay sharp!
  3. __Keeping Frodo and Zulu in line_ is my NOT SO secret talent.
  4. Life is like a box of…litter. It’s messy with many dangers buried deep inside. But it’s also wonderful once you just dig in and let loose!

 

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…

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….

 

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!

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!

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: 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!?

  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!

 

Winter Wins This Round

AMARULA: No! I do not want inside. I refuse to let winter win. I am staying here and not moving until all the snow melts.

Five minutes later….

AMARULA: OK I give up! Let me in! You win this round winter!

 

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

1. I can’t wait to see the human open my gift to her. It’s in the litter box, where I leave all my presents!

2. I have had the same sour expression since winter arrived.

3. I would not mind if Santa were to bring me some fresh cat nip. Frodo got into my last batch! 

4. On Christmas Eve, I always get into the eggnog. That stuff is more potent than cat nip!                     .
