Thursday poetry reading

I'm Only A Cat

I'm only a cat,
and I stay in my place...
Up there on your chair,
on your bed or your face!

I'm only a cat,
and I don't finick much...
I'm happy with cream
and anchovies and such!

I'm only a cat,
and we'll get along fine...
As long as you know
I'm not yours... you're all mine!

Confessions of a Housekitteh

Well. Our Mom has been feeding us Innova Evo, dry and wet. Sadly, the only wet flavor we like, Vishus Deer, does rather bad things to me on the way out. Leia doesn't have that problem, but I do. So we've just been on dry kibble.

And... we're losing weight!!! Not that Leia really needs to, but Mom says I'm a little too much mancat. Hey, I am only 17.4 lbs. Or I was. Dunno what I am now, but I'm getting a lot sleeker, I'm told. But now I'm worried - where will it STOP?? I eat just fine, but it's like I'm losing more than I take in - how will the foods know when to quit taking bits of me away?? Will it take my furs.... will it steal my tail??

Anxious kittehs wanna know!


We want to give a shout out to Melvin. He and his Mom are having a bit of a rough time, and they need some virtual hugs. Also, his Mom is a really talented artist and is selling sketches of kittehs. They are the AWESOME!

PS. Vote Misha!! He should totally be the next Top Model!

Mancat Monday

Wow, it was a busy weekend! There was the Catwalk Caturday... and Meow Like a Pirate Day... lots going on in the CB. It was fun but it's time now to get back to doing what we do best: nothing!!! Long naps, nomming, shedding fur, snoopervising the Mom. The usual.

And now, we leave you with this prayer to Ceiling Cat:

"Praise Ceiling Cat, yu be watchin us, yu can has cheezburger.

"Wut yu want, yu gets, srsly.
In ceiling and on teh flor.

"Giv us dis day our dalee cheezburger.

"And furgiv us for makin yu a cookie, but eateding it.
And we furgiv wen cats steel our cookiez.

"An do not let us leed into teh showa, but deliver us from teh wawter.

"Ceiling Cat pwns all. He pwns teh ceiling and teh floor and walls too.

Woofy Wednesday

I'm as brave as the next guy, but when you're sniffing a gray lump on the ground that suddenly turns out to have wings and starts flittering around, a guy just is naturally going to take a few steps backwards. Unfortunately, my person laughed, so I had to show her. I tugged the leash out of her hand and scampered (her word, not mine) down the sidewalk. Even when she said, "Stop!" I kept going...until she grabbed the leash back and yanked me up short. I got even, though. I refused to move! She had to pick me up and carry me home. Serves her right...she shouldn't have laughed.

"If your cat snores or rolls over on his back to expose his belly, it means he trusts you."

Well. Ok - I do luff my Mom and I do trust her, but sometimes, a Full Monty is just a Full Monty, people. I just wanted to get a good stretch of the nether regions; and sometimes the furs on my tummy NEED to be aired out, don't you know?

So there I was yesterday, having my Easy Like Sunday naptime in front of the window, all twisted around and displaying my mancatly tummy to the world, when the Mom goes into her SQUEEEE mode. She didn't just snorgle my tummy once or even twice, oh no. She KEPT snorgling!

Seriously, woman, I know I'm irresistible and all but really - dignity, please?

Now THIS is a DOG!

Good morning, Kittehs of the CB!

Wandering around online while our Mom is out making green papers for our kibbles 'n kennel, we came across this news story about the most expensive dog ever ($582,135). Ok, we weren't too impressed at first - but then we saw the picture and read the story.

First, he is a gorgeous goggie. And we think maybe his bloodline stretches back thousands of years... we have very strong opinions on breeding but this is a dog worth duplicating, we think so. His bebehs would surely never want for good homes. They probably would sell for more green papers than our house cost!

But we especially liked the last bit of the story, about his homecoming: met at the airport with a motorcade of thirty luxury cars, and hoomins waving welcome home banners for him. Now that is style, friends! Wouldn't it be amazingly wonderful if all new furkids could have that kind of welcome?

Favorite Kitteh Quotes

Well! Kittehs of the CB, we sure came together yesterday. We nobly and thoroughly showed the Back of Disrespect to all who would ban kittehs (even if just for a day). In keeping with that theme, we would like to to present some of our fav kitteh quotes. (Add your own in the comments!)

With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience, dignity, and courage that cats have, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats? -- Fernand Mery, French writer

Cats are a mysterious folk. There is more passing in their minds than we are aware of. -- Sir Walter Scott

As anyone who has ever been around a cat for any length of time well knows, cats have enormous patience with the limitations of the human mind. -- Cleveland Amory

Celebration of Kittehs Day

Today, we celebrate the awesome that is kitteh!!
And there are two of us here, so it's like, doubled!
Happy Special Kitteh Day, everyone!

Tuesday, September 8, 2009


GASP!!! All kittehs of the CB, take heed: "Day Without Cats" is scheduled for 9-9-09. How can anyone be so evil! A day without... kittehs?? How could anyone want to ban kittehs? No cute pictures? No cute videos?

Toby Toesday

WELL!! Our Mom is all cranky with me this morning. Just because I got started with the "please feed me NOW" at 3:30 am or so and didn't let up until 5:30 am... you'd think she would just get up and feed us! I guess she's not that smart.

Oh, and well... this is embarrasin'.... there was that early morning litterbox episode. Apparently it was so... fragrant... around 5:30 that she simply HAD to get up and deal with it, and by then she's up anyway so she fed us. All right, fine, some of it didn't STAY in the litterbox but whatever.

We win. :)

Saturday, September 5, 2009


Yay!!!! We LUFF Caturday! Today we got a fresh can of Vishus Deer.... we're baking on the front porch - the weather is absolutely lovely for baking - is a very good day. We hope all the kittehs of the CB are having a purrrrfect day too.

Toby Thursday

Good morning EveryKitteh! We're one day closer to Finally Friday - which means nuffin' to us but it does get the Mom all happy.
We've been gettin' Evo Innova canned foods. We LUFFED the Vishus Deer, the chicken was pretty good, but the duck was PLEH!!!! And this morning we got our first beef Evo. That was really good too. It's kinda in second place of Happeh Flavors right now.
While I'm on the reviewing stand.....
We recently got the Cat Dancer toy. Just a bit of cardboard on a wire, supposed to make bird-like movements. Umm... yeah.... it went over here 'bout as well as a dirty litterbox. Ok, Mom, we're ready for the next toy!

Woofy Wednesday Warning

To all small (in stature, not heart) dogs out there, take heed. If you go into a flower bed, say for purely innocent reasons, you just wanted to see what was in there, take care. Those dang flower petals are likely to drop into your coat and stick. At least long enough for somebody ... who shall remain nameless because she is in charge of the food ... to laugh at you.
