China Cat is 11 Today!

Hooray - Today is China Cat's 11th Birthday!
My Food Lady let her open her first present this morning.
I wasn't sure what all the excitement was about
because it looked just like a pillow to me.
OK, it was a very nice looking pillow,
all blue with cats pictures on it.
I was so very curious.
I thought it would be OK to check it out.
Oops, I walked across her new pillow...
China didn't get real mad
but she did kind of give me a bit of a glare.
I carefully walked up to sniff the pillow.
Oh wow - It's positively filling the air
with the scent of Catnip!
Now I understand - China's birthday pillow
is absolutely full of Catnip!
What a great idea!!!
Maybe I can roll on it too??????
I know it's China's...
she said maybe we could share...
Maybe later...

Tomorrow is China Cat's 11th Birthday...

China Cat's birthday is tomorrow
and I have the greatest idea of what to get for her...
She loves them and she loves me
so she will probably share them with me!!! What a great birthday idea! I will hide them from her until tomorrow!

My 1st Wooden Cat Wednesday

When I introduced my 3 wooden cats on Cat Art Sunday,
Jeter Harris suggested a Wooden Cat Wednesday.
So I got all 3 wooden cats together and we went over to see
if it was time for a Wooden Cat Wednesday.
Of course,
we went to ask the Wooden Cat Clock.
We had to get real close
because the Wooden Cat Clock is very quiet.
What's that???
Wooden Cat Clock told us it is definitely time for
Wooden Cat Wednesday!
Don't worry, the black wooden cat jumped right back up,
after I got out of the way!

Missing Oscar the Puppy Cat...

I didn't want another sad story...
but our friend, Oscar the Puppy Cat is also gone.

Tummy Toesday

Oh, you caught me sleeping with my head down,
Sometimes I just need to really stretch out my tummy...
You also may notice how I point my hind toes
for leverage...
Wouldn't want to slip off the edge!!!

Cat Art Sunday with Wooden Cats

I prepared for Cat Art Sunday.
Here you will meet the "3 Wooden Cats"
which my Food Lady bought but has not yet named.
They were a "Fair Trade Product from Indonesia"
according to the tag that was on the black wooden cat.
They don't do much but they're fun to look at sometimes.
Maybe they could go on adventures and that would be fun!
~~~~~ ~~~~~ It's Sunday so it's time for the Carnival of the Cats!
This 179th edition is being hosted
at The Scratching Post by K T Cat

Everyone loves you Anastasia...

Anastasia, please find your way home, if you can...

I'm Sleepy...

Lately this chair has been my favorite place to nap.
I was all sprawled out here yesterday.
As you can see it's quite comfortable.
I don't know why
but sometimes I like to nap
with my head hanging down.
China Cat kept talking about the porch. She always wants to go out... I'm staying right here... Stretching out my hind leg
feels good...
Will you please stop
taking my picture?
It's nap time, Mom!
No, I will not smile...
Can't you see it really is nap time!

My Toes are pointing...

I was just hanging around the kitchen,
looking at my food bowls,
pointing out that they are empty...
see, I'm pointing... my toes...over at my empty food bowls... toes still pointing...

Full Monty Friday...

I did it! I was able to enter Monty Q's Contest.
I would like to share my entry here:
I have never done a Full Monty before - at least until August 12th.
While snoozing on the couch,
I rolled on to my back with my feet up.
I didn't know what a big deal it was
until my Food Lady was exclaiming "Full Monty" repeatedly
and flashing the flashy box.
There you go...I now have my entry!!!
(P.S. I haven't done it again so far...)
I will show you my other "almost" entries later!
But now it's time to board the Friday Ark - everyone,
go enjoy all the kitties!

Thanks on Thursday...

Kashim and Othello had a contest
that China Cat and I entered.
We just received some presents from them for participating!
I was thrilled to see my name on this envelope!
It had terrific smells on it,
after all it did come all the way from Austria!
My Food Lady helped us open the envelope
and there was a letter from Kashim and Othello!
And, see at the top, there is a picture of them!
I really like the way they look - so very floofy!
Look at all the toys!
Thank you so very much, Kashim & Othello!

My Nose Twin...

I was looking all over trying to find a Nose Twin
so I could accept George's Challenge.
Much to my surprise,
last night I discovered
who could be a Nose Twin of mine.
Why, it's the Grate Jeter Harris, himself.
I kept looking back and forth, at him and at me,
and I do believe we do look somewhat Nose Twin-like.
Then I found a picture of Jeter
with his squillion, Laffin an Laffin
and look here I am with my squillion, Sadie Katie! This morning I found another possible Nose Twin...
look it's Lucky Charmz.
We look a lot alike too! This was a fun Challenge!

Meet my NOMSS friend, Bogart!

Willow and I accepted Karl's dare
to make friends with another species.

We found Bogart who is an Airedale Terrier
with a terrific blog.

We emailed him that we would like to be friends

and he wrote back that he lives with

"4 kitties and have a bunch of other cat bloggers
that I visit too, so I'd LOVE to be friends!"
October 2, 2005 was a very important day for Bogart.
That is the day that he traveled all the way
from Virginia to Los Angeles, California.
He is a purebred Airedale and he was only 7 weeks o
when he made this trip to meet his new mom and dad.
Here is a picture of Bogart on October 13, 2005 when he actually received his name, Bogart.
And then on October 18th, he was officially registered with the AKC as Bogart Handsome Devil - I agree that he is a very handsome looking dog!
Bogart goes for long walks with his mom and dad. He loves playing with sticks and even has his own stick collection.
Bogart also likes playing with soccer balls. He even has his own soccer jersey that he got from his dreamgirl, Sunshade.
Last for today is a picture of Bogart with one of his kitties. This kitty is named Kafka. In October 2005, when Bogart was still little he enjoyed watching Kafka stalk a moth. He was impressed that for a fat orange tabby, Kafka could really jump up high. Kafka jumped straight up about 4 feet and caught the moth with one paw, landed and then ate that moth. At that time, Bogart was hoping they would become friends and play moth retrieval together.
As you can see, they are good friends now!
