It's Official

We are moving. Mouses!!!! Mom sat down with us last night and explained. She said it's a much nicer place, bigger, actually energy efficient - she says that means we won't be so cold in the winter - and it has stairs we can run up and down.

We're not happy about this. At all. But we know she's doing this anyway.

But...... there is a surprise for us - what she's calling a Kitteh Loft. (Don't tell her, since she apparently doesn't realize this, but it's really just the attic refinished). It doesn't have a window, so we don't know how much we're actually going to use it but we will take it under consideration and get back to you.

Monday Begins

Mom calls this my "bed fur" look. 

*I* call it rude. Can't a guy have a nice long nap without having 
to wake up every five minutes to make sure every fur is in purrfect order??

That's what the time BETWEEN naps is for.

Any civilized purrson knows this.

Sunday Suspicions

Dear furriends... we are concerned here at Chez Whiskeratti.

Very concerned.

We were enjoying a late Caturday evening together. Quiet, nothing much going on, just all relaxed and shedding everywhere. Normal stuff. And then..

Mom starts putting stuff in boxes.

Oh no. No no no. It doesn't mean - it can't mean - can it?

Hoppy Easter!

to our all our furriends.

Also, this is a Cautionary Tail. See the picture? 
With me having this silly thing on my head? 

Yeah, this is how low the pawparrazzi will stoop. 
I was distracted, you understand, there was a woofie 
about I had to keep an eye on.

Don't let this happen to you!

Hey, who makes up these rules anyway??

Mom is home today. Another case of those bugs we can't see, but they make her feel bad.

We were all in bed, where it's warm and comfy. She gets up, I get in her spot, she came back a few minutes later. Do you know she has the cheek to tell me that we can't call dibs on her spot when she's sick? Well!!

We worked it out though. I stayed where I was. She curled up around me.

Speaking of Screaming.....

My stove got rained on this morning. Yes, I know that shouldn't happen; generally speaking, electrical appliances and water don't mix well. Hence the desire to scream.

I didn't, but I wanted to. This is just the latest in a string of house repair situations. I had a plumbing repair on Caturday, though that was minor.

So I came to work and told my administrator that I would need yet another half day off to deal with this. His response was to find me a new place to live. A much better, nicer, more energy efficient place to live. In case you're wondering, I work for a church. So this sort of thing isn't so unusual here. :)

Now I just have to tell the cats we're moving next month... for now, let it be a surprise to them. Please don't tell your own felines, because they will undoubtedly send a mental text to mine. But when the boxes start coming home, they WILL know.

- the Mom

As you can see, I've become quite attached to our new nip turtle. 

I should meow, MY new nip turtle.

Mine, all mine!!!!!!

Mom luffs this day more than any other. We hope everyone welcomes Friday properly!

Our New Fountain

Mom bought us our first ever waterfall fountain. 
It's the Drinkwell Pagoda. It has a bowl and twin streams to drink from.
 She wants to make sure we drink more. Oh, and two new dishes with plenty of whisker space.

So far we haven't used it much, and certainly not where she can see us.  :)

And yes, Mom, we do know HOW MANY green papers it cost you!
Mostly cuz you never let us forget. ****

Oh, and here is the new nip turtle we got today. That's been fun.

Here's to a whole new week for all of us!

Mom: I've been planning this since Tobers got sick. It's expensive so I couldn't
just run out and buy it, I had to wait on the money. Finally I got it, found a great price
and brought it home. I was anticipating how much they would love playing with the
streams. Like watching kids on Christmas morning. And they are all "meh"! about it!!!

Our Reading

Good morning, furriends! Recently we were offered a pet compatibility reading and just got the results back yesterday. If you would like your own reading, please contact Sunny Minorics (
If you are a cat owner (or from their purrspective, are owned by a cat), it’s no secret that our feline friends can be hard to read. Cats can be just as secretive as they are temperamental. However, as is the case with humans, the stars can help reveal the secret personality traits of our pets with the help of pet psychics. By taking a look at the specific pet zodiac signs of Toby and Leia, the experts at Hollywood Psychics are able to determine how Cathy can help strengthen her bond with her cats.
Cathy is born under the sun sign of Cancer. For those born under Cancer, creating harmony in the home is a top priority. Not only is Cathy sensitive to her own needs, but she is also ultra-sensitive to the needs of others; this intuition all comes from Cathy’s Cancerian influence, which grants access to deep emotions that are often unattainable to other signs.
How do the signs of Toby and Leia affect their relationship with intuitive and expressive Cathy, as well as each other?
Cathy and Toby
Toby, or “the Great Orange One,” is a presence. He is born under the Libra sign so he has a fun, sociable, and very pleasing personality. Libra pets also know how to use their personality to charm the pants off of anyone and are highly capable of getting what they want. What they usually want, however, is love, affirmation, and to make the others in their household happy.
Given Cathy’s desire to make others (including her pets) happy, she and Toby are a great match. He just wants to make her happy and she just wants to make him happy. Does it get any better than that?! Cathy’s positive reinforcement rearing its head in line with her Cancerian nature meshes well with Toby’s Libra love of being loved. Continuing to praise Toby as well as giving him attention and stimulation will keep Toby pleased.
Cathy and Leia
Leia is born under the sign of Leo -- “the lion.” Much like the lion, Leo pets like to be the center of attention and “king” of the household. In this case, Leia the Leo reigns as “queen.” Leo pets desire the best food, toys, and accessories; don’t try to get away with giving them hand me downs! They like to rest and take it easy, but also expect their housemates to continue paying attention to them. However, they only want attention on their terms. Sometimes they just want to bathe or take a cat nap so they can continue to look their best.
Cathy’s intuition allows her to generally understand when Leia needs her alone time and when she wants attention. This keeps a harmonious energy between the two. As long as Leia feels she is in charge and is calling the shots as to when she gets attention, she will be satisfied.
Toby and Leia
These cat companions actually work together pretty well for the most part. Being a Libra, Toby needs companionship and it is usually recommended to give Libra pets a second pet to bond with. He is passive and non-aggressive, so he won’t be threatening to the Leia the Leo; he just wants her to be happy. However, there are most likely times when he oversteps Leia’s boundaries, not knowing she was in need of her space.
The Trio
Both of these cats are charmers and seek attention, so this duo may take advantage of Cathy’s strong desire to nurture and please others at times. Cathy also might feel conflicted on which cat to pay attention to since both will want plenty of it and may, at times, compete for it. This can cause Cathy to follow the other side of Cancer, which is reservation and withdrawing into her “shell.” This doesn’t bode well with Toby and Leia either because they both crave the loving and attentive side of Cathy’s Cancerian personality.
Nonetheless, this trio works together pretty well most of the time. If Toby and Leia both get their desired amounts of attention, they will be at their best, generally get along well with one another and working together to build a warm household that fosters love and happiness.

Our thoughts:
This is pretty much accurate, I think. BUT while the cats do often want my attention at the same time, I don't withdraw from them (the rest of my life is another matter). Also, Toby has never entirely forgiven me and Leia for her coming into our lives, so her happiness is NOT a priority of his. Anyway, it was a fun experience to have. Thank you, Hollywood Psychics, for the opportunity!
