Zulu Has A Belly Ache

Poor Zulu was sick last week and needed an ultrasound because he wasn’t eating. Turns out it was pancreatitis. Luckily he is feeling much better but he is very sad he had to have his belly shaved for the ultrasound.

ZULU: I feel naked and cold without my beautiful belly fur! What will the ladies say!?

ZULU: You don’t think anyone will notice do you?

His brother Frodo seemed very worried about Zulu and tried to comfort him.

ZULU: I know the little guy is worried about me and is trying to comfort me but could you please ask him to stop drooling on my head! (Sadly Frodo is indeed a big drooler!)

New Year Resolutions

I think this dynamic duo did a little too much partying with catnip on New Years eve!

You may recall from my post from a few weeks ago that i found an amazing Christmas cat blazer while traveling in Ecuador. My sister was so sad to hear that i found it at a used clothing store so there was only one which meant I could not buy her one (she’s a veterinarian who specializes in cats and it would clearly be perfect to wear to the office). Well, because i am the Best Sister In The World I searched and found an exact copy on eBay and gave it to her as an early Christmas gift! The perfect gift for a vet!! Now my town has two of these amazing blazers!

Happy Holidays!

ZULU: I wonder if actual reindeer ever felt this humiliated?

AMARULA: Bah humbug!

AMARULA: I think we both know that if you don’t get this ridiculous outfit off me right now one of us will be spending Christmas in the emergency ward.

FRODO: I love dressing up like Santa! Why do I only get to do it once a year?

FRODO: Though I can’t help feeling that this outfit used to fit me a whole lot better. Mom must have accidentally shrunk it in the wash

Merry Christmas to all!

Let Sleeping Cats Lie!

I got an early Christmas present! A very RARE site indeed. All three kitties in bed together!

I am used to waking up with Zulu and Frodo, but Amarula usually jumps right off the bed when she sees the other two. This time she stayed for a whole five minutes! She must be filled with the Christmas spirit! Humbug!

AMARULA: I am clearly sleepwalking! There is no explanation for me to be here with those two otherwise! Sleepwalking I tell you! I am definitely not filled with Christmas Spirit!

Amarula and Frodo Go For A Walk

Still having a heat wave here in Southern Ontario Canada! So Frodo and Amarula went for a nice neighbourhood walk (Zulu prefers to stay close to the house and doesn’t join us on neighbourhood walks!)

Frodo follows Amarula’s every move.

FRODO: Hey bestie slow down I can’t keep up!

AMARULA: That’s the idea!

Amarula does try to get ahead and lead the way (she likes to be the boss — and get some space between her and Frodo!)

FRODO: Wait for me Amarula!

When we got back home, Zulu joined us in the neighbour’s garden.

Here’s a very short video of Frodo and Amarula walking – you can see how close Frodo tries to stay to her.

Please let me know if the video doesn’t work!

I won’t be posting for the next two weeks as I will be going to Ecuador and the Galapagos!

Frodo Is All Fired Up

It’s the first fire of the fall! And Frodo was so excited he didn’t waste any time grabbing a prime spot by the fire!

Though he is definitely stretched out sufficiently to ensure he gets as much of his body warmed by the fire as possible, it’s a bit odd that he’s pointing away from the fire!

FRODO: I’m lying in the wrong direction cause I am out of practice! That’s why we need to leave the fireplace on all year — even through the summer!

Now can you please give me a quick tummy rub and spin my pillow in the right direction? And please ask Zulu to join me! He loves the fire as much as I do!

Your wish is my command little guy!

Catnip Party!

It’s rare to see Amarula hanging out with the boys but she was waiting until they left so she could take a turn rolling around in the catnip patch.

All the more important to do now that snow will likely soon cover the catnip!

AMARULA: Hurry up you two. I want a go… Look at the two of them. Rolling around like animals. Have they no dignity or pride??

AMARULA: Speaking of having no pride…I will now allow the human the great honor of rubbing my belly!

Feline Sulking: A Play In Three Acts

Well I told the cats that their human is going off on a trip to Africa (Uganda to see the gorillas and then Kenya for safari) for 3 weeks! They were not amused!

AMARULA: Just make sure you leave the catnip cupboard unlocked. Will I miss you?! I’ve already forgotten your name!

ZULU: I am going to just try to sleep through the whole thing and wake up in three weeks. I don’t want to get too stressed out cause it’s bad for my complexion

(I love how Zulu has that single tooth that sticks out!)

FRODO: What do you mean you’re leaving without me? Can’t you see what the box says? I’m essential!

I will miss them and sorry if i don’t get a chance to respond to your blogs for the next three weeks. I don’t know what internet will be like. I leave on Thursday! I’ll share whatever photos of big cats i get! In the meantime here is a photo of the first hummingbird I had in my yard this year – on the feeder right outside of my office window!

The Gang’s All Here!

FRODO: Hey when are you going to turn out the light? You know how grumpy you get if you don’t get your 8 hours of sleep!

FRODO: Five more minutes and then lights out please!

(This is a very rare event! Amarula never sleeps on the bed  — and certainly not that close to Frodo — so it’s very rare all 3 are together at bedtime! And Frodo does hate when I don’t go right to sleep cause he hates if I move around when reading)
