Throwback Thursday

As y'all might now, I'm almost 21 years old.  I've been around a LONG time and wanted to show just how long!  Here's a picture of me and my typist.  The first one was taken 20 and a half years ago, when I was a kitten and she was 6.

This one was taken today.

We make a pretty good pair!

Getting Attention Back On ME!

Hi kitties!  I'm doing pretty good today - got lots of good napping in.

I've been having a problem lately, and I'm sure it's one a lot of us have experienced.  The human slaves actually think they have other things to do than cater to my every want!  Things like - sleeping, eating, reading (seriously, how can they think a book is more interesting than this face), knitting (and it's not even for me!) or being on the computer (and not being MY typist!).  

So what do I do to get the attention back on me?  I just crawl right on top of whatever they're doing.  And I mean RIGHT on top of it.  There's a book in their hands?  Just go sit on it.  They have that computer on their lap, taking up the primo lap space that a cute little kitty deserves?  Go sit on it!  And then it'll be impossible for them not to pay attention to the cat, which is the only slaves' REAL job.

It works pretty good.  I suggest you all try it out.

I also like sitting on dogs when they're in the slave's lap.  Just to make sure I'm the one closest to getting pets!

Crazy Kitten

Even though I is almost a year old, I are still wild and crazy like a lil kitten.  Last night were a gud xample.  My momma gave me my usual half a can of cat food so I wouldn't wake her up meyowlin for more foodz.  It usually works.  But last night I ate my foodz and den I started meyowlin like I were starvin.  After all, all my momma were doin were readin a big dumb book.  Somethin bout witches or somethin.  I don't knows, it were not about TUNA, so I were not interested.  And it were not a book called How to Feed Your Cat More.  

Anyways, I were meyowlin like a crazy starvin dude who had not eaten in a million jillion years.  And what did my momma do?  She just kept on readin and told me "Shut up Travis!"  Me, shut up?  I don't think so.  I kept meyowlin and eventually she played some with me with my feather wand toy.  Which were fun and all, but what I really wanted was foodz.  But dat playin wore me out so I just went to sleeps.  At least I got some more foodz when my momma wakeded up dis mornin.  

And she made pizzas for dinner.  I smells 'em, but I don't get to eats it.  Life are just unfair.  Guess I'll really have to turn on da Crazy Kitten mode tonight!

Napus Interruptus

Hello human slave.  I see you there with that camera that is apparently permanently attached to your hand.  I know I'm beautiful, but really?  Can't you see I'm sleeping here?  

Ugh, the slaves and the unfailing ability to wake a kitty up from a perfectly good nap.  I'll have to think of some revenge - maybe a hairball or a poop outside the box?  I'll think on it some.

Happy Caturday!

Hey - it's Travis here.  Hope y'all had a pawsome Valentine's!  It are hard work on Valentine's when you is adorable as I is.  Ya has so many Valentine's and ya gotta work extra hard to make sure dey all gets special attention.

Of course my main Valentines were my momma, Miss Jezebel, and Miss Whitley.  Da momma are da most important one - ya gots to be extra sweet to your mommas to make sure dey give you extra treats!  And I did get some extra treats and tasty stuff.  I even gots some of da bacons for breakfast this morning - yum yum!  And of course I are Valentines with Miss Jezebel.  She might deny it, but she likes me.  And not just because I are warm.  And Miss Whitley, she are a dog who are crazy for kitties.   I think she likes kitties more dan some kitties do!  So she are a pretty good Valentine too.  And Miss Finley too, she are a fun pup to play with!

But I are not done!  I also are Valentine's with my momma's momma.  She likes giving me head kissies and I like rubbing on her.  And my momma's sister who owns my BFF (at least I think we are BFFs, he has got some different ideas sometimes) Maurice.

So it were a busy day!!  And my momma got dis crazy singin and dancin pink monkey thingy.

It are a lotta fun to watch - I love watching dose movin things and I thought they'd all gone away once da humans put up da Christmas decorations.  

Well, I hear da fridge opening, so I gotta go investigate . . .

How to Sit On a Lap

Hi everycat, Jezebel here.  A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about how I've become a lap kitty in my well, "advanced" years.

But I realized, there are a lot of kitties out there who don't know how to properly sit on a human slave's lap.  I've seen those boys I live with, Travis and Maurice just plop themselves down a slave.  There's a lot more to it than that.

First you have to crawl up on the lap.  Don't be dissuaded by something else being in the lap - whether it be the computer, knitting, a dog, you name it.  In fact, it's even better if something else is in the lap because then you can make your slave stop paying attention to that and start paying attention to YOU.  Which is, after all, their only purpose in life.

I especially like when there is a dog in the lap.  Not only do you get the slave's attention back on you, where it should be, but dogs provide heat and warmth.  It's like a breathing heating pad.

Now, for the technique.  Slowly crawl on to the lap.  And I do mean slowly.  Then stand there for a few minutes.  The slave might try telling you "just sit down already."  Don't listen to them.  This takes time.  Then slowly turn circles on the lap.  You have to find the purrfect spot after all.  My purrfect spot is usually directly on top of one of those warm personal heater dogs.

Your slave might ask you some dumb questions like "what are you doing?"  or "do you even know where you are?"  Ignore them.

Finally, sit down and snuggle in.  It's best if you're snuggling down on top of either a dog or a fleece blanket.  Even better, a dog on top of a fleece blanket!  And prepare to sit there for hours - after all, it's not like that human slave of yours has anything better to do.  Unless it's feeding you of course!

Happy Caturday!

Jezebel here - hope everyone is having a happy Caturday.  It's been really cold here lately, which I don't approve of.  I'm an inside kitty, so I don't really have to deal with the elements, but the house has been colder and worst of all - my sunspots have been missing!!!  How am I, the Queen of Everything, supposed to sunbathe if there are no sunspots??  I did not give the weather permission to do this!

We had some of that "snow" stuff - one of the dogs seemed to like it, but the human slaves were not that excited since it was not enough that they could avoid working.  I don't know why they insist on doing that anyway.  I know, I know, it keeps me in cat treats, but the whole idea just seems so uncatlike.

Well, I'm heading back to my fleece blanket to nap.  Hope y'all have a nice Caturday with lots of sunspots to nap in!


P.S. My other "little brother" - the youngest human slave's cat, Maurice, just started his blog - Maurice's Meowsings.  Go check it out.

Hey palses!  Travis here.

Last time I wrote, I wrote all about how I loves da people food.  I loves it so much, but I do not always gets all I wants.  Tonight I wanted some hot wings, but I didn't get any.  Dey kept it all to demselveses and kept telling me dat "hot wings aren't for kitties."  Who made dat rule, I wanna know?  Because shouldn't everything be for kitties dat kitties want?

Anyways, I started thinking - maybe I should ask for da foods I wants so da people can get it through their headses dat I want it.  A couple days ago, dey were eating brunch.  I got a couple pieces of da bacons (way to small, dey shoulda give me more!).  Dey were good, but den I started thinkin - I's never had lamb.  And I'd really like to try it.  So I let out a new meow I'd been working on - it went kinda like "maaaaaaaaaa."  It were like I were baaing like a sheep!

I are real good at new meows - I learned how to copy Miss Jezebel's loud "MEOW!" and sometimes I sound like two kitties havin a cat fight.  I use dat one when I are stuck in my room - hopin my momma will look to see what mean kitty got in dere and are harassin me and den I can sneak out.  But this were da first time I'd ever baaed like a sheep.

Still no lampchop for me, so I guess I are gonna have to work on perfecting it some more.

Hmmm, I think I hear da fridge door opening - meow at ya later!!
