My Idolizing Fans

What can I say? These little guys just love me. I can't even sleep alone. Especially that Sophie, she just can't stop purring once she sees me. It's kinda embarrassing to be fawned over, like I was a rockstar or something. It's a hard job, but momma says I'm helping her out a lot by keeping on eye on them. If they choose to worship me in the meantime, well what's a mancat to do?

Sunday, July 29, 2007

Here's what my momma looks like, as a Simpson's character, She followed the link on Kimo and Sabi's blog,, to get there in case you'd like to create a replica of your bean. It's kinda fun.

We're going to take an easy day of snoozing. Mom is reading a good book and the rest of us are gathered around in our own sleeping positions. Mine is on the back of mom's recliner where she's sitting. I like it when she turns around and asks me for a kiss. Unless she has been a bad bean, I always lean over and give her ear snuggles. It's something just between the two of us. No other cat snuggles with her this way. This makes her MINE all MINE.
Enjoy your Sunday,

Is Jake Normal?

Tyler's mom here: I have a question regarding Jake's possesive behavior around Sophie. Where they used to share a plate of stinky gooness, now I have to separate them because Jake starts to growl when Sophie comes near what he's eating. A few minutes ago, Jake dragged over a wand toy that has pieces of fur and bells tied to the wand. When I started to shake the toy in front of both him and Sophie once again he starts growling. She backed off and left him alone. He seams to this more with food and toys that are made with real animal parts. Is this normal behavior? Or do I have an overly aggressive boy here?

Wednesday, July 25, 2007

Bianca, Sadie and Wilie of Mosaic Cats tagged Jake for the proverb meme. And wow is he excited. He thinks it's too cool to be tagged on Tyler's blog site, before his brother was.

A proverb is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated, which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of mankind. They are often metaphorical.

Here is one proverb created by Willie and Bianca together: There are only twenty-four hours in a nap.
(I don't know how to count hours yet, but it sounds good to me except when I'm not napping and then I'm terrorizing....but then that's cuz I'm a kitten. I loves my naps, but when they're over, THEY ARE OVER. Not like my ancient sister Kali who only naps.)

And Sadie, who is described as being spiritual gave us this one:

Morris 5:37,38

"No one puts new clean litter into dirty old litter boxes, or else the new litter will touch the poo poo parts, and it will be stinky, and the clean litter will be skanky.
But new litter must be put into clean litter boxes, and both are good. No cat having scratched new litter immediately desires old, for he says, ‘The new is better.’ "

Wow, Sadie must have gone to cat school or something. That's a lot of words. I like the part about the clean litter and the clean litterboxes. That was the best part, Sadie.

Okay, here is mine: A rolling vet or vet helper gathers no sticking owchy sticks that hurt young kitty's behinds.
or maybe I'll change it to: A rolling vet person gathers no sticking owchy sticks unless they stick themselves while they're rolling.

And another one I dedicate to my Momma:: Better never late than ever.

My last one is: Eat to live and live to eat.

That's all I've got for now cuz my typist is leaving the house. I tag Lux, Angus and Chase.

Happy Proverbing!
Jake (who's the one who was given this meme and not his older brother who didn't get it)

Rules to Dragonheart's Contest

Now, for the exciting news: my birthday contest is going to be a Scavenger Hunt! Every day for the next week, at random times, I am going to post an item or a list of several items on my blog. If you want to participate in the contest, you need to find the item(s) and post them to your blog at the end of the contest! The items may be tidbits of information or photos I've posted to my blog, they may be tidbits of information you need to find on the web, or they may be something you have to create! (Don't worry, none of the items you need to create will require technical knowledge or photo editing software, unless you choose to use such for creating your item.) At the end of the contest, you need to post all of the items on your blog in one post. The last item to be collected will be posted on my blog on July 25, 2007, and you will have until July 29, 2007 to make your blog post with all the items.

There will be several prizes awarded at the end of the contest. One prize will be for the cat(s) that find the most number of the scavenger hunt items. If more than one cat finds all the items, there will be a draw to determine the winner. There will also be a prize for the most creative entry, as determined by myself and my humans. As I mentioned, some of the items will be something that you have to create, and so the creativity of these items, as well as the creativity shown in putting together the final post with all the items, will be judged. There will also be a random prize that will be determined by placing the names of all the contestants into a hat, and one name will be drawn at random. Other prizes may be awarded, depending on the number of entries, at the judges' discretion. If you do not wish to receive a prize (for example, if you do not want to provide me with your snail mail address) I will make a donation, whose value is equal to that of the prize, to the charity of your choice.

This contest is open to all cats with a blog.

I reserve the right to change the rules of the contest at any time.

If you have any questions about the contest, please feel free to ask!

According to Jane Reilly, editor-in-chief of Cats magazine, Mr. Bigglesworth's real name is "Ted Nudegent," *NOT* "Mel Gibskin" as mistakenly reported by USA Today). Jane says that Mel is another Sphynx that gets some airtime in the movies (Mel is full-grown now but played the role of mini-Mr. Bigglesworth in the sequel), but Ted (or "Teddy", as he is sometimes called) fills Mr. Bigglesworth's collar. Thanks to Jane for setting us straight. :)

Rats, cats work together to sniff out land mines

Lately Sammy and Miles have been talking about jobs, green papers and such. I was positive that I wouldn't want any stinkin' job. Living in luxury, with a mom that dotes on me, iIs all I need in the world.

But then I ran across this article. In Colombia I coud get a job as a bomb sniffing rat trainer. I would be responsible for saving human and cat lives alike, with ALL the danger left to the red-eyed rats! I wil be called a hero. "Hero Tyler, how does it feel?" " Hero Tyler how many bags of Temptations may we offer you? "Hero Tyler, please let us reward you with the company of our Shakira Kitties for the evening, dining on imported stinky goodness under the Colombian moon, without your mother in sight." ¡A sí, este es el trabajo perfecto para un gato como yo! (Ah yes, this is the perfect job for a cat like myself.)

Rats, cats work together to sniff out land mines
Colombian police put felines in rodents’ cages to make them more focused

Fernando Vergara / AP
The Colombian police force has been experimenting with training rodents to detect explosives in minefields. The process would take advantage of rat's acute sense of smell and low weight, which would allow them to find mines without activating them. The cats are included in the training to help rats become used to possible predators.

Updated: 3:49 p.m. PT July 24, 2007
BOGOTA, Colombia - Who says Tom and Jerry can’t be friends?

For the past year, a special Colombian police unit has been locking rats in cages with cats as part of a project to train the rodents to sniff out the more than 100,000 land mines planted mostly by leftist rebels across this conflict-wracked Andean country.

Bringing the rats face to face with an enemy allows them to stay more focused once they are released, veterinarian Luisa Mendez, who’s been working with the animals for two years, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
The rodents are taught to freeze in front of mines, but had difficulty staying put for fear of being attacked by predators.

“Here the cats play with the rats instead of attacking them,” Mendez said. “The cats wear shields on their nails so they can’t cause any injuries and as a result the rats feel comfortable playing around them.”

Col. Javier Cifuentes, who oversees the project, said the rats’ success rate in mine detection is 96 percent. Unlike dogs, the rats weigh a lot less and therefore don’t trigger explosions.

Colombia is home to the world’s largest number of land mine victims. Last year, there were 1,108 victims, or about one every eight hours, the government says. Nearly a quarter of the victims die from their injuries.

He's Negative

Jake was tested and came back negative. He even had his rabies vaccine given so now he should be good for a while. Poor guy, they took him in back and I could hear him screaming. It was awful. Now he's sleeping it off. I'm looking forward to spoiling him tomorrow.

Jake's Monday Mankitten Pose

Momma am I old enough to be a mancat?
Momma: You are my lttle mancat.
Jake: NOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooo! I wanna be a real one!
Momma: I'll have check into the official rulebook and let you know. Until then, why don't you just enjoy being a kitten.

No Blood Test

My mom forgot to tell you all that after waiting to be seen for an hour and thiry minutes, they never stole my blood, yeah!!!
Once we got into the room, the vet's helper told my mommy that the vet who was there that day isn't very good at taking little kitty's blood. She told my mommy that all he does is stress the kitties out, cuz he rushes to get to see other kitties and woofies. Well, momma didn't want me to be wrangled by that guy so we left. Now momma told he I HAVE TO GO BACK tomorrow, on Monday. Before mommy know what was happening the lady gave me the nasal FIP vaccine. Last Mon. my vet and my mommy said that I didn't have to take it because I will only be an indoor kitty. At first my mommy was really mad, because we spent a lot of time just waiting around in the waiting room for no good reason. But now she's happy that the vet's helper would be honest with her. She says that I'm worth all the time in the world if it means that I will be more comfortable while getting my blood stolen. Momma really liked Monday's vet. He knows a lot of stuff and has neat tricks for giving medicine so that us cats don't get upset. That's the only vet she's ever seen at that place. Next time she'll make sure we only sees him. But the very very bad news is that I have to go back tomorrow. I'm going to ask momma if Tyler can come with me to protect me from that vishus Siren.

Mom here: I bought this PTU (what does that stand for, by the way) at Pet-N-Go
I bought the carrier bed and top cover at Cat In The Bed

I absolutely love Linda who handmakes everything at Cat in the Bed. I also have a sofa saver from her. She makes everything quickly. She's in the middle of trying to sell her house and she still got things to me within a couple of weeks. She sent free catnip cat toys that she hand makes with each of my orders. Enought said. I think if you check out her site, you'll see all the different fabrics and beds and quilts that she makes.

Jake's Journey

"I remember seeing how some cool cat (maybe Tripper) showed the visit to his vet in picturees. I asked momma if could take some pictures of this visit. Here I am in my new PTU. "Where are you taking me Mom? "


"Uh, oh."

"Quick Mom, put the cover back on."

"Who's there?"

"Not again! Mom!"

"Oh goody, Siren can't find me here in the exam room."

"Ah, crap!"

Scary News

Tyler's Mom here: I came home yesterday and found a message on my anwsering machine. it was from my vet, who had seen Jake on Monday. He said that he had been thinking about Jake and wondered if he'd been tested for FeLV and FIV at the SPCA. (Where I had adopted him.) I thught the question strange. I'm thinking he must have been tested, with all those cats, they must be tested for both. I'd never put my own cats at risk by bringing an untested cat home. When I found

Wrong! On the last page of the packet I received with Jake says the following. "Cats available for adoption at the shelter are not routinely tested for FeLV and FIV. We recommend that you have your adopted cat tested by your veterinarian. Keep your new cat separate from your cats at home until you have the testing done."

Now I'm angry. Jake has been here over a month. I was given a separate computer generated sheet that told me what exactly I needed to do next for my boyWhen I found Sophie on the street, I wouldn't take her home until I found a vet who would test her right away. I just can't understand why it wouldn't be routine testing. Don't they want to prevent the spreading of these diseases? Do they see the animals as disposible as a paper plate?

Now I'm angry. Jake has been here over a month. I was given a separate computer generated sheet that told me what exactly I needed to do next for my boy, at the vets and at home. When I found Sophie on the street, I wouldn't take her home until I found a vet who would test her right away. I just can't understand why it wouldn't be routine testing. Don't they want to prevent the spreading of these diseases? Do they see the animals as disposable as a paper plate?

I didn't read the paperwork until midnight last night. My vet has walk-in hours without appointments today for three hours starting in 45 mins. I didn't sleep for more than an hour total last night, worrying.

I"am also angry at myself for assuming that the tests were given. I know better than to trust blindly anyone or any group of people. If he's sick, I am going to have a hard time forgiving myself. Ok, let's be positive. The vet said in the taped message that it's rare for a kitten to come in sick. I don't know how long it will be before I have the information. I'll let you all know as soon as I do. Please send positive thoughts our way.

Full Monty Practice Session

Mom: Cookie, you're the best at the Full Monties. Will you show the kittens how it's done?

Cookie: I don't think so.

Mom: It's for Monty Q's contest. You could win a really cool prize. You're our resident expert. The kittens need you to teach them.

Sophie:"Look ma, like this?"

Jake: "Momma, is this it?

Cookie: Exhibitionists.

What collar?

"Tyler, Sweetpea, what's different about you?" wonders Momma.
"Don't know," evades Ty.

"Ok where did you leave it?"' asks Momma.
"Couldn't tell you," mumbles Ty.
"You wore it for less than a month. It was made from fine soft leather and it was quite thin so you wouldn't notice it around your neck."
"I noticed."
"I need it back," says Mom.
"Hmmm.... I'll get the word out...not.

Tuesday's Tabby's Toesies

Cookie does her part in modeling for the day.

Bad Kitty!

Boy, oh boy, what a day. This is Jake the ginger kitten here. Momma tooks me to my own doctor for the first time. My doctor has a monster living in his waiting room. I was sitting all innocent and sweet in my PTU waiting for my Momma to fill out the paperwork and it happened. I was attacked! This white and tabby big cat-like monster came up to MY mobile room. She sniffed me a lot. I went up to her and rubbed noses with her through the window. All of a sudden this hellcat started hissing at me. I've heard that sound before, so I hit the floor showing her my belly. She tried hitting me through my saferoom. Thats when my Momma told that girl to move away from me, or else.

Why would my doctor keep a mean old girl like that in his waitingroom? Momma says her name is Siren. I told Momma there should be a siren warning little kittys like me about the beasty beast. I'm really ok now. But a hissy girl like that is very unexpected. Momma and I both thought she would be a lovely girl, since she's the hostess kitty of the place. I'm secretly hoping that a woofie comes in today and puts in her place. I would like to be a fly on the wall for that one. He he he, I like the idea of seeing her hairs all sticking up and trying to excape by climbing up the curtain.

MY vet doctor says I'm a very healthy boy. He had to stick me several times and put yucky medicines in my mouth, but I was a very brave boy. (Mom here: The vet says he's very mouthy. He asked me if he's very active and boy is he ever. He zooms around here and Sophie the other kitten can't keep up.)

So if anyone wants to go to Acacia Pet Clinic in San Jose, CA, watch out for Siren the Hissing Bogeykitty. Stay inside your PTU's and stand up for yourself if she dares to hiss at You.

As you can see, I need to rest and recover. Hope you all get some good snoozing in today. Thanks Ty for letting me use your blog. Your friend Jake (the cute one)

Schmoozer Award

Another Award!!! Wow, I'm really liking this blogging stuff. I was nominated twice, once by beautiful Gretchen and secondly by my Taiwanese buddy, Adan. I bow my head down in gratitude. Friendships are very important to me, so this award will be treasured.

Details about the Blogging Community Involvement Award are as follows:

"As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability 'to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.' Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship."

Okay, now I have to nominate five other friends for the Community Involvement Award. I picked The Crew and Mr. Hendrix!
Thank you all for taking the time to post and make others pleased to hear from you. Let's have a big round of applause for these new friends!
Happy Sunday! I hope you all get lots of cat naps in.
Toodles, Tyler, One of the Schmoozers

Here they are, my new cousins!

These are my brand new kitty cousins. The grey girl is Crystal and her brother is Chase. They're nine weeks old. Momma says that they're super sweet. On their first night in their new home, momma stayed at their house too. The babies spent the night playing in momma's bed and sleeping on her chest. She had a hard time saying good-bye because they live two car hours away.

Welcome to the family, cousin kitties.

Do I LOOK like a chew toy?

I found an important picture Momma not for the blog, but to show you how I suffer. Once again my reputation as a hunky vigorous mancat has been blackened. I will be seen as a kittens' plaything, a trinket, a trifle. Momma, you've gotta explain to him that my tail is ...well...MY TAIL. I am the only cat allowed to touch it. Ok? Tell him cuz he doesn't listen to me. And when you go out and get him that toy maybe you could compensate me for all of the emmotional distress I've suffered at the paws of those two babies. Proper compensation: Temptations (big bags all to myself!), Merrick's Gourmet stinky goodness (all to myself), Pounce (all to myself), live 'Nip plant (all to myself) and my very own laptop and a stroller for Cookie because she has suffered also. Ok, maybe the laptop you can save until my birthday to give it to me. K, momma. Go to the store now and bring me back my reparations. Now please.

Huh, you're going to put it on the blog? Oh momma, don't click on that orange but...

Where Oh Where Did She Put It?

We're all out of pictures. My momma packed the battery charger to take to my Auntie Beth's house. She wanted to take pictures of my two brand new kitten cousins. Two more kittens in the family. They are tuxedo babies that just left their mommy when Auntie Beth and Momma went to pick them out. Turns out that she left her camera home with us. Now she can't find both parts to the charger cable. So no new pics.

Everything is much calmer since momma refilled the Feliway dispensers. I even saw Cookie on the same couch cushion sleeping next to Sophie. She allows Jake to come near when Momma is there to praise her for not growling. Poor Jake sees her and rolls over in submission.

I hope everyone has a perfect Friday.

I nominate...

I want to nominate Timothy Dickens for the Rockin' Boy Blogger Award! He's a wonderful guy who is great with kids. He also goes to visit his Grammie in his new stroller. It's really cool. You should go vist his site at Way to go Timothy. (He doesn't know it but he also shares his name with my cousin bean, Timmy.)
Toodles, Tyler

Thursday Tattles

Yes, I too have been honored, by Bogdan, Miss Sara and Kat 3, the owners of the Morning Scratch Newspaper, with the Rockin' Boy Blogger award. This is such a tremendous commendation because I was not expecting it. As you know, I'm new here to Blogland. I did not expect anyone to recognize my rockin' attitude in such a short time. Also those that nominated me, are some very smart cats because they have their own newspaper. They appear to be a very loving family. They recently lost their last ferret member named Fiona. California has a very ridiculous law that says NO FERRETS. Why? There is no logic. But this family took in their Fiona at risk of having her removed by force. Can you imagine?

Before yesterday, I had never read their newspaper. It is an interesting read and I recommend that you check them out at I think you can all understand why I am tremendously honored. I am going to search for someone else to nominate and I will let you know when I find the perfect cat.

I also was tagged by Mr. Hendrix, the very courageous cat to whom I look up, to fill out this MeMe:

Who's out there?

THE KITTENS: AHHHHHH! Momma! Are those the vishus deer eyes we've been reading about?
MOMMA: Let me turn on the lights.

THE KITTENS: Oh, he, he. I guess we're safe.

MOMMA: I guess so. I think I need to vacuum that curtain.

My Other Two Sisters

Here are pics of my other two sisters. The dark one is Kali, my very old big sister. Momma forgot to charge the camera's battery, so this is the best pic she has. She's a 17 year old tortie. She's a very grumpy girl with everyone except momma. She forgets that I'm the real boss around here. When I go in her space to remind her that all spaces are really MY spaces she bats at me. She also tries to sleep in momma's lap that is MY lap. Yesterday when she turns around to get down I gave her the bitie on her backside. Momma made me get out of the chair. Momma just doesn't understand that all she has to do is honor and respect my alpha male status. Momma says there's also something about "old lady status". I don't think she really knows what she's talking about, but what can I say, even I know momma's the biggest boss of all.

The other photo is of Cookie. She's showing momma her hairless tummy. She wants momma to know that she's had a lot of stress due to the little rodents that are running around here. She licked alls her hair off down there. She's getting better now. Her hair is growing back. Mommas put up that Feliway stuff everywhere. She made some secret hiding spots for Cookie. Cookie now tolerates 'em. But if they try to use her tail as an attack toy, Cookie meows very loudly, whips around and gives the offender the evil eye. Now the kittens know all about Cookie's evil eye so they just hang around me instead.

Thank you to all my visitors. I love the attention. I'll try to get to your place some time really soon.

Happy Birthday America! Toodles!

Kittens, Kittens, Kittens

Ok, today I'm going to introduce the kittens 'cuz they think they should go next. They SAY that they're real cute and peoples are going to want to see 'em. Now I warn you they appear cute and they can be. But do you know what they do to me? Now, you don't know me very well and I want to assure you that I am a manly beefcake type of cat. So when I tell you what they do to me, understand that if I wasn't such a self-assured type of guy, my dignity might be hurt. Okay it started off with the calico kitty, Sophie...when she finds me lying down trying to nap, she tries to NURSE on me. Now if that wasn't bad enough, the other kitten, Jake has started to join her in this very embarrasings activity. Momma says she feels sorry for the kittens because they must have left their mommas too soon. She tells me it's good to be patient. I have compasion I dos, but tell me, how much is a dignified mancat suppose to put up wif? So I let them try to give me hickies for a few moments and then I push them off and say "meOWS" real loudly. They STILL go at it purring like a couple of, well...kittens. I needs to just get up and goes.It's not fair because they gets to stay near momma and I'm the one to run off. Sometimes momma lets me stay with her with the door closed off from those two and it sure is nice to get a break.

So here's sweet picture of the kittens and then a picture of Sophie trying to milk me, Sheesh. My ears tell it all don't you think?

Momma says not to leave out how we gots the kids. Well, Sophie just showed up to momma's school(she's a teacher) one day about a month ago on 5/30/07. She fell in loves with her and brought her home that same day (after she saw the V-E-T). And well she was so wild with the rest of us, momma desided to get her a brother, her own age, at the shelter. So momma went and found Jake the next week. Sophie got all hissy and spitty with Jake when they first met. Here she was just a few days here in her safe room and she didn't want to share it with no other kitty. She knew he wasn't a kitty who lived here befores. By the end of that day, they were bestest friends. All we know about both of them is that they were lost babies on the street. Noew they have their forever home and momma loves just like the rest of us.

I have two more sisters I'm going to show you tomorow.
Toodles, Tyler

So then I had to use not my best picture of me. I'm much more handsome than this out of focus one. I'll ask momma to take more pictures so you can see just how handsome I really am.
