The Awesome Man was playing with the meezers last night with a Temptation tapped to the Whirly Bird. He tried to get my active and waved it in front of me but I was smarter than him. I knew that he would give me a pile of Tempations later anyway and I was right. For the grand total of no energy used I got a nice pile of Temptations.
I was generous with my handsomeness to the Woman. I've been snuggling with her and even giving her some hugs. She was really busy cleaning out drawers and switching from the summer to winter human coats that they wear on their bodies. She had these really cool bins that she was putting clothes in and I kept jumping in and taking naps. She almost took me up to the attic!! She said the one felt more heavy that the others and she found me folded in the folds. It was cozy so I wanted a nap.
So I was chasing Kaze down last night when she turned and ripped and tugged and pulled my fur! Tufts came out! I was so shocked I just stood there and sniffed at them. Latte (ever curious) came and sniffed to so I whacked him a good one just because I was mad at Kaze and had to take it out on someone. Kaze of course ran away because she knew my wrath would not have been good. No harm done, just a little bit of my undercoat is now gracing the dining room floor.
The lovely Black Cat bestowed this upon us yesterday. She was not the first but we realized that we were so far behind! Kaze, Latte, and I have been very very VERY behind in our wonderful awards that our friends have bestowed upon us. Also with meme's. Don't blame me, blame the Woman who's been too busy and/or tired and/or DUMB. We're working on "Stink-Torture" punishment where we take turns leaving such stinky vile poo that the smell never leaves the kitchen. Especially when guests come over. Obviously she is vowing to never let us down in this regard again. So we deeply apologize for not mentioning everyone who have awarded us these lovely awards.
Anyhow, we thought we'd take an opportunity to thank everyone who reads our blogs and loves us because we love ALL of you for your different ways. Its always so hard to properly let you know what you mean to us. You are the first and last things we check on in the morning and night. If given a free moment one of us nabs the computer and checks our Gmail for comments and Spokeo for new posts. Sometimes life gets crazy for the humans but we consider all of you our family. We are completely devoted to each and every one of our readers and friends.
As many of you know the Woman was going through some weird human mental/physical stuff but she's been much better with her attentiveness to our needs and things are getting back on track. Thanks for bearing with us.
Chase, Latte, Kaze, & The Woman
Most of you saw our family picture on Kaze's blog on Tuesday but I thought I'd show again just how different in size we are. I am 14 lbs, she is 9 lbs. She is pretty much paper thin while I'm a bit more of a pumpkin middle. My head is big and my ears small, hers is small with HUGE ears. I coo softly and not very often and she screams constantly.
However we are both tabbies. And we love to play tag. And we have very special people even though they are very different. So while Kaze and I aren't in love I do have my uses for her. She keeps the Woman from annoying me and she's really fun to play with.
But the fact still exists: I am a BIG man cat.
I don't usually show you my back because my front is more handsome. However if you looked at me from behind you wouldn't know I have white paws and a white belly. I have swirly furs which are pretty cool.
I got stuck in the closet yesterday. The Chip Man didn't know I was in there but he yelled at Latte for trying to "rescue" me. Haha, I loved watching them freak out when I ran out of the closet all proud of myself.
Do you like my new header? I made the Woman do it for me. Generally good weekend all around here. The windows were all open so there were lots of great things to sniff. I've been sleeping a lot of course. AM played with me and we had lots of nice purring/snuggling sessions. Even the woman was allowed some purrs.
Ugh, the woman weighed me and now I'm in trouble. She said I weigh 14 lbs and I need to loose a pound. Well she can forget about that unless she wants to feed us all alone and I know she's too lazy for that.
Oh! And there was that crazy wind thing that happened on Friday and I had to "flat cat". It was askeery and the only way you can hope to live through a wind storm is to flat-cat. Its a proven fact.
Usually Latte is our designated House Hunter. I don't really mind, I've been there, done that, and I'll admit I was beaten by a red squirrel once. I'm not ashamed of that, I was a kitten and I hunted that thing all night long without sleeping. The fact that it escaped was because the humans tried to intervene.
Anyhow, the Woman came home with some food stuff and when she turned around to the counter she saw one of her most hated creatures ever....the centipede. She hates them. When she was a little girl she had one in her hair. I don't blame her! I saw the create and ran after it. Luckily for it the creature ran under the dishwasher. The Woman FREAKED out and ran out of the room. I hunted it for a while but it didn't come out. This is their time of year.....
So yeah, sometimes Latte slacks on his job and I have to step up. Its hard to be in charge sometimes.
I know, its hard to not stare at my handsomeness. Its overpowering- I understand. My golden eyes....white paws...tiggery fur....its too much to resist. It is a fact that I am the most handsome cat in this house.
Rats got us locked out of the sleeping room last night. Stupid rats. I sleep either at the end of the bed or on the scratching post but those two walk all over the humans. So I suffer. Eh, I like taking over Latte's favorite bed anyway. Hehehe.
I'm working on my Halloween entry, should be done soon.
About my look from Friday. Cheysuli and Parker were closest saying I was getting a butt spank. The Awesome Man scratches my ears and they get all itchy so I put them off to the side like that. He was also spanking my butt a bit after the picture. But all who guessed Kaze...good guess, she is my major annoyance in life.
This weekend a HUGE box arrived at our door. As all packages are for us cats and not the looser humans (who no one sends anything) we got to investigating quickly. The box smelled heavenly!!! I could tell that my Charmers Mittens & Patches (even though she's with Brainball now, I always keep lovin' my girls) had rubbed on the box. The box was gift enough but inside was just heaven!! See for yourself!!! Kaze LOVE LOVES LOVES the string thing especially and Latte got some pink mice! The Calico Mom is really good picking out presents, we also got THREE bags of Temptations! Oh and the Woman was thrilled because she got some pinecones from the Piney Woods. The Woman is WEIRD and she loves pinecones so she was thrilled. And now we have a piece of the woods with us always. Thank you so much girls and Happy Gotcha Day!!!!
Every cat has "the look" in our arsenal. In fact we have many looks for different situations. You know what this look means, its the warning look. The "Do not mess with me!" look. Why do you think I'm giving the look? I'd like to see what you think annoys me. I'll post the answer on Monday. Have a great weekend!
Have you seen Mickey's Thursday Thirteen? It is so cool! It features 13 expressive cat faces (of course I'm honored to be included) and you have to see it!
I won the Calico Girl's Gotcha Day gift!! I'm so excited I've even woken up from my nap!
We live in a very lovely town that has a huge old canopy. It is very charming and the sycamores really create a lovely ambiance. This is our main street on the 4th of July when we have a big parade.
The Awesome Man and the Woman were driving home from the barn last night when they heard a strange crackling noise. Suddenly there was a huge CRASH!!!!!!!! A large branch came from the sky and landed in front of the car and bounced up while the wussy Woman covered her eyes (like that was going to do any good). Luckily the AM was driving. They drove home, which was a block away. The Woman called the cops and they showed up at the house 5 minutes later. They couldn't find the big branch so the AM had to drive up there and help them remove the pieces.
Luckily no one was hurt but it could have killed a pedestrian and certainly any cats who would have been outside! The car is wounded and they are trying to figure out if its the homeowner, the Boro, or the County who is in charge of the tree. The policeman said they will have to get back to us. Luckily it is driveable, just scratched up and its ear hanging.
This is a highlight from my one-on-one red dot time with the Awesome Man. The meezers were locked in a room and the red dot came out. I did laps around the house, I climbed the walls, I spun in circiles, I.....I.....was exhausted! I'm not quite sure how on earth those meezers can go for an hour at once and not just fall asleep mid-air! I had fun but boy I would rather take a nap!
I wish I had more to say but I don't. Nothing at all happened here this weekend of any note. The AM was outside scraping/sanding/caulking the exterior of the front porch and the Woman was at a wedding shower on Sunday so no one was really around at all. They *gasp* didn't even take one picture the whole weekend! And those are our time to get daylight pictures because the Woman (aka photographer) never had time to take pictures like she usually does.
You've probably heard me refer to the Bite-Game before. It starts when the Awesome Man comes over and starts tap-tap-tapping on my head with his flat hand. This gets me to put my ears back while I focus on the attack. He keeps on tapping until I'm ready to grab him and he pulls away really fast. This is me trying to grab him as he pulls away. This is only the start of the Bite-Game, bunnykicking and kitty situps are the other parts. Also, when he thinks we're done we're not. I always run after him and bite his ankles. Hehe. Oh, and there is usually tail-poof.
This is the Woman's at work screen shot. She has a Mac at home and is just incompetent and can't figure out how to get a screen shot of that. This is a flower in the garden of the Woman's grandmother, a hydrangia or something like that. It was white but then she made it sepia.

These are the "kitty-sit-ups" as the AM calls them. My tummy is just fine thankyouverymuch. I don't need any exercise because I'm fierce and Manly and beans should fear my ferocious jaws!!! Ugh....still....this used to be easier when I was a bit younger. That just means I'm older and more experienced though, just smarter really.
The roofer men took the weekend off so I had a nice quiet break. That is until the Awesome Man decided I need exercise. He sucks. He said I'm getting out of shape because I can't do my "kitty-sit-ups" where I grab his wrist with my front paws and bunny-kick his arm with my back paws. Alright, so the mid-section is a bit more round and I'm just not exactly interested in bunny kicking. Nothing wrong with that in my opinion. At least he put the meezers away and played with me and the red dot. I'm not as athletic as I once was (leaping up the walls) but I hunted the dot for quite a while.
