Kitties, It was 97 freaking degrees here in the City by the Bay today. I do not approve. I am ordering a 30-degree temperature drop for tomorrow. Can any of you help me out with that?
By the way, I am licking a drop of sweat off my pretty black nose. Oh, and notice my manly leg dangling in the breeze. If there were a breeze. Which there isn't.
Well, Kitties, here I am, back with Chapter 2 in the Tales of the Box of Bounty from Katnip Lounge!
Here is what made me so sweaty and fainty that I needed an extra day to gather my wits about me:
Kitties, Can you imagine? Actual FURZ from Salem, The Baby, and KonaKitty!
Of course, my Human had to set up a little challenge for me. With all three lady-furz arranged in a semi-circle, and me plopped down in the center....whose scent would entice me first?
Yes, Kitties, I confess I was drawn right off to The Baby (which of course should surprise no one)!
But wait! No sooner did I inhale that wonderful Baby-Scent than I rushed to bury my nose in the beauteous furz of KonaKitty. I was so intoxicated I took the furz in my pink little mouth and jumped off the table, and rushed under it to inhale and taste to my heart's content. The picture below was taken just before my leap:
Sadly, the Human snatched KK away from me for fear I would run & hide, & she'd not be able to retrieve the sample for further challenges in the future.
By this time, I was quite exhausted and not ready to resume. But Salem's card had fallen to the floor in the midst of the KonaKitty excitement, and (despite the blurry photo), I think you can see my interested was reawakened by the proximity of Salem's alluring scent:
Kitties! Wait till you see what the Katnip Lounge* (*Longue) kitties sent me!
There was so much glorious bounty in the little box that I can't even take it all in yet. (And the very best, most exciting part of it made me all sweaty and fainty, so I will have to wait a day or two to show you.)
But this very morning, my breakfast tray looked like this:
I have a new STRIPED placemat! Isn't it beauteous?
And then after breakfast, I played so hard with this mousie I almost hurt myself (I think because it absorbed some wonderful scents while it was inside its package!) The picture is a little blurry because I was moving so fast!
I want to say a huge THANKYOU to the Katnip Lounge Kitties & their Momcat, too!
Why doesn't the Human ever enjoy a nice plate of the Stinky Goodness with me?
Why does the Human step into a big curtain-thing and let water spray all over her? Doesn't she know how to use her tongue?
Why does the Human get up when it is still way dark and expect me to be awake and affectionate? I mean, *I* don't have to get dressed to go earn the green papers! That's her job! She should just let me get my beauty sleep.
If the Human wants me to play with her, then she should get down on the floor and roll around in the nip and then bat the sparkly ball around for awhile. I'd play that with her!
Today we are visiting with our friendsAggie & Wally, who just three short months ago were, according to the Human, "adorable" little kittens.
Yeah, well, times have changed. They may be better described these days as the Spawn of Satan, according to their dad, who was not quite prepared for the destruction wrought by adolescent felines. Heh, heh.
Here's beautiful, albeit very serious, Aggie. If you look closely, you can see that now she must be held firmly in position in order to keep her still enough to photograph. Does she look thrilled to you? No, I didn't think so:
And here's sweet little Wally, the cherryblossom-that-was! He's a little more cooperative about sitting for his close-up, although note the restraining fingers:
Finally tonight, here they are, looking for trouble. Note Aggie is still something of a stalker. Can you see how BIG they are?
Okay, that's all for now! Bye, Kitties!
P.S. The Human apologizes for not visiting for a couple days. She'll be back tomorrow!!
I wonder what that guy across the street is doing?
I know it looks like night in my picture, but it isn't. It's only like 6:30 pee emm, but the flashy box makes it look really dark outside. The Human is not even technologically adept enough to change the settings on her own flashy box. And I wonder why it took her so long to get me a place mat! (Which, by the way, is now residing in the laundry basket--where it may sit forever, as far as I know--and I am back to a bare tray again.)
Yes, I know it's shocking that I am interacting so intimately with the hose of the Sucky Monster, but I have discovered that, for a kitty of my particular proportions, the flexible Sucky Monster hose makes a purrfectchin rest!
Hello Kitties! Yes, it's Caturday and, as promised, I'm baaaaaaack! And not a moment too soon, I assure you. The Human should have let me blog last night, but, no, She was all tiiiiired and wanted to go to bed eaarrrly, never mind that I might have important things I want to say.
Which, as it happens, I really do not since it is such a sleepy, sunny, lazy day and I am happy to snooze it away on a full belly. I hope to come visiting later & catch up on all the kitty news that I am woefully behind on.
Apparently I am not important enough or highly-placed enough to make it onto the Human's "Priority List" until Saturday. I have not been allowed to visit my friends, nor make any interesting new posts for days and days and days and days.
Ordinarily, I am rather private about my tummy and associated regions. I do not fling myself about with abandon, exposing my tender parts to all & sundry.
However, a warm day and a truly excellent sun puddle caused me to momentarily lose control of myself. The Human leaped for the flashy box and before I knew it, there I was, captured in bits and bytes for all the world to see.
First, the Human went to a birthday brunch (not hers) by the beach on a beautiful morning (I was not invited):
Then, I was given a snippet of store-bought nip (acceptable):
Then the Human went to the little greenhouse at her school to check on the Real Nip:
Then the Human went to see "The American" (only so-so, but she says it is always enjoyable to watch George Clooney). Afterwards, she visited the Kids, our friends Aggie & Wally, who seem to find their dad's antics puzzling:
Well, I am staging a one-day protest and refusing to pose for the Human. She saw fit to desert me last night while she went to an exciting and important birthday party in a town that's 75 freaking miles away from here. It was almost 11:00 p.m. when she got home and then do you know what she did? That's right! She went to bed almost right away without hardly playing with me or talking to me AT ALL. By 11:00 p.m. I had been without my dinner for hours and hours and hours. I was on the verge of starvation. It was a close thing, I tell you.
So, no pictures today.
But, yes, here's Wally bathing carefully as a budding Mancat should after his snack:
And here's his BFF, Aggie, immediately after she killed that dangerous little screw of paper with her mighty teeth & claws. Oh, and yeah, she and Wally have managed to litter their dad's hallway carpet real good:
Finally, who could resist this pose? Not my Human, evidently.
