Sending Secret Paws

Both China Cat and I have received our Secret Paws packages in the mail! I don't know how we will wait until Christmas to open them.
We just mailed both of our Secret Paws packages to some wonderful cats... but I hope that they will get them by Christmas time. My Food Lady was a little slow on the packing but as you can see, we both snoopervised and made sure that all the presents were good cat presents for Secret Paws! I think that my Secret Paws will love these Temptations!

He is here again...

Here I am, looking for that new little guy that keeps coming over to my house. My Food Lady calls him her Sweet Grandbaby and Little Pooky. That's not what I would call him but no one asked me... He is part of the reason that I don't get to blog as much as I did before... sigh...
See, behind me is something that he sits in. Sometimes he is quietly playing but sometimes he is loud and he tosses toys on to the floor. These are not cat toys and I am not allowed to play with them. At first, I was afraid of him but now that I know that he cannot escape that saucer I like to sit on the couch and watch him. He likes to watch me too!
I don't know what will happen if he gets out of that saucer...
Here's where to find all of the Weekend Cat Events!

But I hope that everyone had a nice and safe Halloween!

Derby's Tock-Tober

Happy 6th Birthday to Derby!
I wanted to join in on the Tocktober Fest
and I think that this might be a good Tocks picture of me.
I was snoozing on my Big Janitor Dad's lap
when suddenly there came the flash from
my Food Lady's camera!
Time to head on over to Derby's Party...
See everyone's tocks over there!

2009 Meow Like A Pirate Day!

'Tis time t' Meow Like Pirates again! I be Pirate Willow th' Wicked an' I be ready to ride the seas,
lookin' for treasure.
Later, I be lookin' for Cap'n Mao Fang of the Cat O' Nine Tails. He took over for Cap'n Nels the Cranky who we lost last year, but still hold close in our hearts.
Here is my official Pirate Name:

My pirate name is:

Calico Bess Rackham

Often indecisive, you can't even choose a favorite color. You're apt to follow wherever the wind blows you, just like Calico Jack Rackham, your namesake. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!

Saturday Caturday Fun for Me

I love to be way up high on top of my refrigerator. That's where my water pitcher is and sometimes I just like to sit up there. The garage door is to my right and when my Food Lady leaves the door open to bring Groceries and Treats into the kitchen, I can see all the way down to the street.
Today I was looking at a fly that came into my kitchen. You can see by my eyes that he is up by the ceiling and too far away for me to pounce on him or swat him down.
Well, I couldn't reach that fly and it is pouring down rain so I don't want to go out in my screened-in porch. My Food Lady decided to make a fantasy picture for me.
See, it's me but now I am outside looking at leaves and a pretty heart-shaped balloon. Maybe it will stop raining soon and I really will go out and see leaves and balloons!

Almost My New Box

My Food Lady's laptop crashed to the floor and broke the monitor. My Big Janitor Dad tried to fix it but so far it just is NOT fixable. He told my Food Lady that the hard drive is OK so all of our pictures are still safe - whew, we were all relieved at that! So my Big Janitor brought home a new laptop for my Food Lady. She took out the laptop to look at it, and I jumped right into that box! See how I am showing her how much I like this box! I told her to look at me - I fit perfectly in this box!
Well, it wasn't to be...
My Food Lady found that the new laptop wasn't strong enough for her Photoshop program where she makes pretty pictures, so the computer had to go back into it's box and back to the store.
My Food Lady get another new stronger laptop but it didn't have a good box. It was just skinny and flat. It made me a little bit sad...
I wish that we could have kept this nice box.

My Tea Time Pictures

These were pictures from a tea party that I had with China Cat. Don't worry, I wasn't really drinking tea - my Food Lady put my crunchies in the tea cups!
It was such a fun tea kibble party

Since it is World Cat Day

I think that I should go out into the World. Never mind,

I don't want to go out.

I think that it may be scary out there

for an indoor cat.

I'm staying here - I love you, Mom!

Thanks for taking care of me!

Tummy Time

My Food Lady was reading the newspaper at one end of the couch so I walked over her and went down to the other end to take a nap. I am not a lap kitty with my Food Lady but I like to be with her. See how big I am - I can use the space on a whole cushion all by myself. I was happily snoozing down here when suddenly there was one of those blinding flashes that always wake up cats. My Food Lady told me that she couldn't resist taking a picture of me all stretched out and showing off my white floofy tummy. Wow, what a huge yawn!
Can I return to my nap now???

Toesday Today

Hey, it's Toesday today!
Time to enjoy seeing my perfectly aligned toes!
Here I am sitting on top of the refrigerator where I have my water pitcher. Sometimes if I am lucky someone will come in from the garage and leave the door open so that I can look out. My Food Lady thought I looked so cute she quickly got the flashy box, after telling me to stay where I was and not move. I could see somebody walking with their dog outside so I was happy to just sit inside and look out!
Anyway, my Food Lady loves the way I align my toes all in a row. This is how I almost always sit so I don't know why she still gets so excited about it...

I found this box in the family room!
Thanks, Food Lady!
And everyone has seen my porch box!
I like to lay in this one almost every day!

Noisy Sunday Morning

This morning I went out in the screened-in porch to enjoy some fresh air and look for birds and bunnies. I was under the couch looking at a robin through the screen. I heard a noise behind me and quickly turned around and came out from under the couch. It was my Food Lady sitting on the rug. She wanted to take a picture of me looking at the robin but I didn't know that when I came out. My picture is a bit blurred because I was walking toward my Food Lady. I sat down and listened...
There was a noise that wasn't there before...
Excuse me, Food Lady,
did you hear that noise???
It is kind of a shrill barking type of noise. I know that two little dogs live over that way. Now those noises are getting louder! There is a deep barking noise back there.
So far I count at least 2 little shrill barking dogs on the right,
2 medium barking dogs on the left...
and now there is
a really loud big dog barking behind my house.
There is the big black dog that started everybody barking!
He is new around here and he sure likes to bark.
My Big Janitor Dad thinks that he is just visiting.
I hope it's just a visit - I like my porch quieter than this!
Here is a collage of my Noisy Sunday Morning.
And now it started thundering so I am heading into
the house to hide under the bed!
I'll be back out when it is quiet again!

Tummy Time

My Food Lady was in her office so I thought that maybe she would help me blog. I jumped up on her desk and tried to get her attention. She just kept doing some work that had nothing to do with my blog. I needed to take drastic action to get her to notice that I was here and waiting to blog. I had a brilliant idea... I rolled around and turned my head upside down. That was working so I then showed her my tummy and I started purring very loudly!
She told me that yes, I could blog today!
But she wouldn't share her strawberries
or her glass of water with me!
Look, my Food Lady even put me into a pretty picture!
I am so glad that I got her attention today!
Now I am napping on her keyboard...
Zzzzzz Zzzzz Zzzzz

Life is good, indeed!

My Gotcha Day is Today!

It's my Gotcha Day today!
Five years ago my Food Lady and I met at the Humane Society. I was the last kitten left after my two other siblings were adopted first. My soon-to-be sister-cat, China Cat needed a kitten. Samantha, the One Who Came Before, had recently gone to the Bridge. My Big Janitor Dad and my Food Lady were afraid China Cat was lonely. I was so happy when I went to my forever home - China Cat is the best ever sister-cat!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

I really like to sit in the front window. From here I can see birds, bunnies, squirrels and chipmunks. I also see people and dogs walk by my house. My Food Lady surprised me by putting this gray cat bed here for me. She was laughing at me because I kept licking my cat bed. What's wrong with that??? I thought that it tasted good. China Cat always licks my head - I guess I taste good too! Lately what I have been looking for out the window is an Orange Intruder. The Orange Intruder looks kind of like China Cat but it's not her and I don't like the OI to come up on my porch. He or she usually comes by when it gets dark. then I jump at the window and yowl very loudly. My tail poofs up really big and I start panting and yowling some more. That is what happened the other night at 11:00 p.m. and my Food Lady wasn't happy that I scared her. But then she told me what a good kitty I am to protect the window from the Orange Intruder. We are trying to get a picture - well, my Food Lady is trying to get a picture. She'll have to take it when I am not looking or I'll scare the OI away before we get a picture! Well, my house is safe today
so I guess I'll go see if I can have a snack...
