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!

Channel Surfing With Zulu and Frodo

ZULU: I don’t know why Amarula hates winter so much Frodo. These TV winter specials are the best.

FRODO: I agree Zulu! This is so exciting!

ZULU: Wow! I don’t know where to look next! Lucky we have such a wide screen.

FRODO: It’s almost like they’re watching us too!

ZULU: Oh boy! What a close-up shot right outside the window! I would rather watch this than the winter Olympics!

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!!

Amarula: Winter and the 5 Stages of Grief

WINTER: The five stages of grief…

Stage 1: DENIAL

AMARULA: I wonder why the human was acting so odd when she let me outside this morning…hey, what is this strange white stuff that seems to be everywhere?

AMARULA: I wonder where all the birds are? Well, I’ll just wait by the bird feeder and terrorize them as they fly by like I always do…if I could just get this white stuff off of my paws…

Stage 2: ANGER

AMARULA: SNOW! Noooooooooooooooooooo! How could you do this to me again Mother Nature! Curses!


AMARULA: If winter would just go away, I promise I would be nice to Zulu and Frodo.


AMARULA: I can never escape winter! I might as well bite down on this electrical cord and end it all now!


AMARULA: It really is everywhere isn’t it?

AMARULA: I’m outta here! Let me inside!

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

  1. Snow is the ENEMY
  2. I is my favorite word in the universe! I like to think that I put the I in tortIe!
  3. One holiday memory that I cherish is when I managed to hack up a hairball right under the Christmas tree! Is there any better gift to show the human just what I think of the holidays and her festive spirit???
  4. I always thought that Santa is clearly a dog person. Why else would he LEAVE presents instead of TAKE them? Clearly a dog lover; no self-respecting cat person would ever do such a crazy thing.


Amarula Falls Apart

AMARULA: What the #@!% One minute it is all beautiful, hot and the middle of summer and I have one tiny little nap and wake up to find this mess of leaves everywhere and a cool breeze in the air?! What is going on!?

AMARULA: This can’t mean what I think it does, can it? Fall is here AGAIN!? How could you do this to me Mother Nature???

AMARULA: How many times does this season plan to keep showing up! And does this mean WINTER is gonna come again too!?

AMARULA: Maybe if I look real cute Mother Nature will cancel winter… I mean, could you say no to this face?

Monday Madness: Amarula Has Cabin Fever!

FRODO: Oh what a wondrous, magical day! You are not going to believe this…I barely believe it myself…but Amarula kissed me! I know, I know…you are incredulous…but I have photographic evidence!

FRODO: I was sitting in my box dreaming about chicken again when suddenly…

FRODO: …Amarula decided to join me! I was so happy cause I love spending quality time with my big sis even though she tends to really enjoy playing “swat Frodo with my paw” a little too much (but don’t tell her I said that please I don’t want to hurt her feelings!). Suddenly she got this strange look in her eyes…

AMARULA: I feel very strange…I think not going outside is making me stir crazy…or maybe it’s just gas…

FRODO: Suddenly she moved real close to me

AMARULA: What’s happening…what am I doing…?

FRODO: Then blam! She kissed me! It’s hard to see but I still have the wet spot on my forehead to prove it!

FRODO: She seemed a little embarrassed so I quickly looked away so she would think I didn’t notice

AMARULA: Oh my God! What have I done? The snow is going to my head! Maybe if I look away he’ll think he imagined the whole thing!

FRODO: You saw that right?! Yeah! My big sis loves me!

AMARULA:  This is all WINTER’S fault! I gotta lay off the mulled wine!

Winter: Is It Over Yet?


AMARULA: I have a brilliant plan to beat winter this year….


AMARULA: I am going to close my eyes and when I open them all these leaves are going to be gone and winter will have moved on!


AMARULA: Nooooooooooo! It didn’t work! How dare you disobey me Mother Nature!!!



Despite the fact that winter appears to have me beat, I did my regular Friendly Fill-Ins hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader!

  1. Why Cats are Better Than Dogs and Should be Human’s Overloards_should be taught in schools.
  2.  The last item I donated was … an especially nicely shaped piece of poo. I didn’t even charge for it! I’m not sure why, but my human minion loves to collect them!
  3. My (personal) song is Cat Scratch Fever by Ted Nugent because I so love the idea that a tiny scratch from my little ole claw could make a human sick…such power!
  4. Three things I am thankful for this week are: my good looks, a clean litter box, and my good looks (I really am just that beautiful).
