Me kneading the blankets making Mom and Dad believe I was comfortable on their bed. Genius!!
Well this morning I was so tired I didn't hear him rustling around in the livingroom and I didn't have time to sneak away from my new sleeping spot. By the time I realized he was awake, he was already in the kitchen. Let's just say that his belief that I never walk on the counter was found to be a big fat lie, especially since he caught me slinking quietly out of the cupboard! Yes it's true, I love sleeping in the cupboard right next to the bowls or glasses, wherever I can squeeze in. It's just so nice and dark and high up!
I'm not sure how I'm going to manage it again, hopefully he'll forget about it tonight and I'll be able to pry those cupboard doors open again with my incredibly strong paws! Even if the cupboards are closed too tight, I'm sure I'll find a new place. It'll also be in a place Mom and Dad never suspect.
What unusual places do you guys sleep in?

The entree of choice tonight was Sheba's Ocean Seafood Cocktail with Sauce.
It looks like chunks with a sauce. Is that a clam or oyster?? What the....
Look, I waited patiently yet eagerly for this food but when I looked at it and took one whiff, I ran away. I almost knocked Mom down while she squated near me to take my picture. Zoe didn't waste any time either. Dad even brought her back but she ran away.
I was so annoyed that I sat in a near by chair and chewed on my nails. Anything is better than that food!!
Zoe sulked under the chair. Mom left the food down for about 2o minutes to see if we'd change our minds but NO WAY!
Finally, she cleaned out the dishes and got a second can of food out, Friskies Fancy Feast Ocean Whitefish & Tuna. I could tell that this food was more like our style! We don't really dig that stuff with chunks or sauce on it.
As soon as Mom put down the dishes, we got to business. The subtle aroma of the fish wafted over us as we gulped it down. It didn't take long to clean our bowls!
Afterwards, I groomed myself and fell asleep. Zoe went to bed in her cat tree. Our vote? The Fancy Feast won by far!!

Apparently piles of soft food left over night untouched and hardened has garnered their attention. Today they brought home several different foods for us to sample: Friskies, Priority, 9 Lives, Fancy Feast, Fancy Feast Medley and Sheba. We'll let you know how it goes.

After consulting the Internets, some friends and the vet, Mom first put butter on the tops of my paws. WELL I FLIPPED OUT and ran away, leaving a trail of butter behind me. Looking back, it was pretty funny seeing streaks that looked like a skier had been in the kitchen. Anyway, next Mom wrapped me up with a towel in what she calls The Burrito (usually saved for rare occasions when she doesn't trust my claws) and gave me some olive oil.
I was not pleased!
I swallowed most of the oil but some of it stuck in my fur for days. It was in that hard to reach spot on my neck. Anyway, Dad went to a local store and looked for some of that stuff in a tube that they usually give me but he couldn't find any. The final last step of abuse I suffered was the removal of the hard crunchy cat food! Mom decided we should live on a diet of soft food for 24 hours to help "move things along." Most cats would enjoy that but personally, if I had a choice I'd go for our Iams Hairball formula any day.
They decided to wait it out and see what happened. The thing they didn't notice until much later was a small hard turd lying in the doorway of the bedroom. Even when I'm not feeling well, I'm sure to keep the element of surprise!!
Over the next few days I made several large deposits in the litter box. Mom and Dad even had the gall to STARE at me and watch my every move! It was so embarrassing, I couldn't bury my business fast enough! The good news is I'm back to normal. Mom is talking about making changes to my diet so this doesn't happen again. Hopefully it doesn't involve The Burrito!
I'd like to thank you all for your well wishes, I feel so loved! Mom is a little jealous that more cats comment on our blog than humans do on hers but she has NO idea how tight we cats are!

Plus, it's been extremely hot. Mom has been kind enough to run the AC even when she's not here. But the humidity at 75% is just awful!
Well, back to the litterbox for me.

This morning I heard her say something about visiting her Mom. But how can that be? Her Mom lives over 1200 miles away! I'm confused. She and Dad seem to be up to something, there's a lot of commotion, laundry being done, clothes being put in those boxes with handles, etc. They even had the neighbor-that-pets-me come over and they showed him our food and litter box! Something doesn't smell right here!!

Not much to write about the days. It's been hot so mostly we just lay around on our Dad. He got a new receiver which means he now has another remote. There's three remotes in this picture, can you find them all? Meanwhile, his remotes are keeping his hands busy and we're not being pet. ARGH!

Yeah, ME!! She actually took the disk and swirled it around in circles on the top of my head.

Here I am sitting patiently with loud intermittent meows waiting for her to throw the mouse between fetches. Simba doesn't understand my passion for fetching the mouse!

1) I love trucks. Whenever a big truck drives by, I run to the bedroom window and stare out. My favorite is street cleaners.
2) I don't like people petting me when I'm sleeping. If someone pets me, I'll give them the stink eye.
3) The only soft food I eat is Friskies. And ONLY Ocean Whitefish Dinner or Ocean Whitefish with Tuna. And nothing froo froo like gravy.
4) The tip of my tail feels like the bone is sticking out. It also feels like it was broken once a half inch from the end. It was like that when I came home to live with my Mom.
5) I have freckles in my mouth, on my toe pads and in my ears.
6) Catnip is OK. I'd rather just roll around on it than eat it.
7) When Dad calls me and points, I know he's telling me to go look at whatever he's pointing at. Usually he's pointing at birds outside on the fence or on the patio pavement.

By the time I made it over to the catibus (I almost didn't believe Simba, but I could smell the stench of it's lovely leaves), Mom had put it outside and planted it in a big planter so it'd grow up and make even more leaves for us to eat. I can't wait! I'll show you pictures when it's grown up.
