Oh Jake!

Last night Mom decided that she wanted to brush Jake. She knew that Temptations bribery just wouldn't be strong enough for that boy. So she pulled out the serious stuff, fish flakes. We wish we had captured a movie of what my brother did. As Mom concentrated on zooming him as quickly as she could. Jake would stick his paw in the can of flakes and out would explode a bunch of flakes onto Mom's tummy and lap.  Jake would pig out on the big gobs of fish as he tried to pull his body away from the zoom groom. Once the large bits of flakes were eaten, Jake would again pull out big gobs of fish. Mom put the lid on so he would carefully eat the tiny pieces of fish that now covered her whole front and lap. Instead Jake ran away and let Sophie and Cookie eat up the smaller bits. He was quite a comical sight pulling a fast one on Mom by eating the big gobs of fish and trying to run away before she could finish brushing him. That boy is very clever.

Merrick's b. g.

We've been doing some taste testing of a new brand of cat food in order to help our mom out. She's always looking for a healthy food that we'll go crazy about too. Well, this is how it stand so far. The canned chicken is bluckty-bluck-yucky bad. The canned salmon flavored Jake ate about 2 tablespoons worth and the rest of us wouldn't take a bite. We still need to taste the quail, beef and tuna wet food. The dry crunchies we like better.  The tuna was the best, but we liked the other two chicken and salmon just fine. This brand is called b.g. (Before Grain) and it's made by Merrick which makes other healthy stinky goodness flavors, that the kittens sort of like, but I Tyler won't eat. Cookie and Kali don't like healthy stinky goodness at all. They both like Fancy Feast, but mom won't buy that for us. She only lets us have it if some one gives it to us as a gift. We're seriously deprived over here. We have yet to find a tasty healthy stinky goodness. It's very sad. We read about others enjoying their stinky goodness on a regular basis and we just don't understand why we too can't life the good life. We thought Mom loved us, now we have serious doubts. >>Sigh<<

We're Back!

Hi friends! We've been away for such a long time. I demanded that my mom take some time to help me write this post. It's without pictures though because mom doesn't know what she did with thing that uploads the photos. 

My brother, sisters and myself need to thank Queen Snickers and Empress for our Swap n Tails package. We were delighted with a huge bag of Pounce treats. Mom has been using them to brib us to sit still for our furs to be Furminated. They also gave us Fancy Feast stinky goodness. It's so tasty that even Cookie is eating it and she NEVER eats the stuff mom buys. There were several yellow pom poms that Jake took to right away. He likes grabbing those furry things and acting like he caught a real live mousie. Mom encourages by calling him a brave hunter, sheesh that kid will do anything for a little love. Those two lovely ladies gave my mom a citrus smelling bottle of oil that has reeds you stick into it. She saw one at my aunt Beth's spa and liked it's perfume. Now she has one just for herself. 

In other news, I'm being mistreated by my old geezer sister Kali. The old gal should know by now that mom's lap is mine. Yet she comes over while I'm already there and starts whapping me on the head very hard. Now I whap right back of course or now I've learned to turn the other cheek and let her go at my backside as I cringe away. I know mom will save me. That makes me look like the wonderful child in her eyes. And then when I'm alone with Kali, I let her have it. I've got to teach her to respect me. 

Yesterday Cookie sneaked out the front door. Mom was so frustrated that she told her to just take off already because she needed to carry in a box that the Fed Ex man had left by our door. Mom then turned around to see how far my roaming sister had gotten. Well, when mom didn't run after her, my frightened little sister came back and was right by mom's feet. Silly, silly girl!

Mom has some exciting news in her life. She has been wanting to change schools within her district for years now and it looks like next school year it's going to actually happen. The school she is moving to is a very good one. She is going to learn new skills and work closely with her teammates. So closely that she may not have to work as hard as she does now. She is very excited to make this change. 

Happy lazy Sunday on this long holiday weekend. Hopefully mom will get herself organized so that you can see my handsome face again sometime soon. 

Oh yes, and hugs to everyone. I think this is a sweet way to honor Bonnie.

Although we're late in posting this, we want to say good-bye to feisty Bonnie. We so much enjoyed reading about how you ran your house and let Victor know who was the boss. We hope you've found loved ones over the Bridge who will obey and honor you, dear girl. We pray that your family will soon heal from your leaving and just remember the good times.

Tyler Tattles on a Tuesday

Tyler here for the big fat tattle on my mom. She disappeared again for a whole day and NIGHT again last weekend. When she came back, she had that aroma of strange cat on her. Each of us took turns investigating the smells on her arms particularly. She had been unfaithful. She even had strange tuxie hairs on her PJs. Now I know I've got a lot of siblings and they come in all colors and hues. What I don't have is a tux brother OR sister. Mom wouldn't talk, so today I broke into her iphoto and who did my little eyes spy but two tuxedo cats staring me down. Here's what I found:

Having found the evidence, Mom claims she, get this, "forgot to tell us" that she would be sleeping with our cousins. Well, she's in trouble now. I'm thinking up the proper consequence. Mom's a teacher and talks about consequences having to be natural and not punitive.  I don't know about that. I think the punitive ones are better. Or at least having her worried about the various punishments I may come up with is better. Of course I'm open to suggestions.Or perhaps you may refer me to a published list of acceptable punishments for the beans various crimes.  Especially, if they've worked with your person or people. Gotta run, take care. Thanks for any ideas you may have.

Mancat Monday

Hi, it's Jake here. And it's my turn to do Mancat Monday. I'm a year old now. Although Mom doesn't know my birthday, my Gotcha Day is June 6th. I was around 8 weeks old when she got me. So now that I'm a real man, do you think I'm any less hyper? Well, just a little bit. Last night I slept next to my moms head, which was a first. I let her cuddle with me while she fell asleep. Never before have I slept near her. Oh, I might snooze by her feet, where of course she couldn't touch me. It was sort of nice to be snuggled, but I haven't decided if I'm going to allow it to happen again. You'll just have to stay tune to a future Mancat Monday.

Knock, Knock. 
(Tyler, Kali, and Cookie: Um, Mom are you going to get the door?)
Knock, Knock.
(Sophie & Jake: Mom, the door!)
Knock Knock.
Who's there?
Nobel who?
No bell, that's why I knocked!

Okay that's our joke for Camie's Kitties'
  fundraiser. You should check it out!

Mom can't figure out how to format this post correctly, but that's what happens when she tries to post after 1 am.
