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)

Zulu Has A New Friend

Zulu was in the backyard when he noticed there was a new cat hanging out. It’s Remington my neighbour’s cat. (I have seen him in my yard only a couple of times. He likes to sit near the black tubes to see if there are any chipmunks inside. I leave the tubes in the back yard in the summer so the chippies have a place to hide if a cat [some of the neighbourhood cats come to my yard] tries to get them. It has worked wonderfully so far!)

Zulu followed him around for awhile to determine if Remington was friend or foe.

Zulu really had to think about it. Remington appeared to fall asleep while Zulu was making up his mind.

ZULU: Sir, I do not like that you trespassed in my yard but I do admire your fluff! This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

Finally Zulu seemed to decide that Rem was not a threat and they just hung out for awhile.

Hopefully Remington will be back for a visit soon!

Frodo Is Not A Morning Kitty!

FRODO: What do you mean it’s time to get up! (Frodo’s expression says it all! He is not and has never been a morning kitty!)

FRODO: Can’t you see that Zulu and I are having a fantastic snuggle session. Can’t we please have a couple more hours of sleep? Do you really want to break up this bromance?

Could you say no to these two adorable kitties?

Alas, I could not

FRODO: thanks! Zzzzz

Dumb and Dumber

Note the chipmunk (behind the brick) that decided to hang out with Zulu. I’m not sure which one would win the award for “dumbest.” The cat who doesn’t even notice a juicy chippy standing right behind him or the chipmunk who thought it was a good place to hang out!

ZULU: I have the strangest feeling someone is watching me…

Last Night By The Fire

ZULU: Did you hear that Frodo? Mom said the hot weather has arrived so she’s going to shut down the fireplace until the fall!! This is our last night by the fire until fall comes!

FRODO: I know, but don’t you worry Zulu cause we can still hang out here together even if the fireplace isn’t on! Let’s just enjoy this moment together buddy.

Happy Easter Monday!

The Easter celebrations are still going strong over here!

FRODO: When does the egg hunt begin!?

AMARULA: Are you seriously making me wear an Easter egg collar? That’s it, I’m contacting my lawyer! This is a clear case of cruel and unusual punishment!

ZULU: A tie with sequins!? SEQUINS!? Sequins are so last Easter! I will never recover from such a major fashion faux pas!!!!
