Mitten Monday

Long time readers of this blog will remember Mittens.

Mittens is a neighborhood cat Mom and Dad have fed over the years. They are quite fond of him.

Mittens showed nothing but respect for Angel Fin, I'm told. Never a hiss or a swat. So I figured we'd be chums. The first time I met Mittens (through the screen door) I squeaked out a joyful hello.

And Mittens hissed at me. I was a little shocked, but I figured I'd just surprised him. I'm sure he was expecting his friend Fin.

This morning Mom opened the door to give Mittens some food (my food by the way) and I figured it was time to introduce myself again.

Hey buddy!

Mittens: Hissssss.

Seriously? You don't want to be pals?

Mittens: Hisssssss.

So there we are. I was nothing but a gentleboy to him and he is still all hiss. How do you think I can be his pal?


Flooflet Friday

There I was minding my own business... 
When I saw him out of the corner of my eye.

You again Mr Tail? 
::Whispers:: He keeps getting bigger! Longer AND floofier! ::Shudders::
I hope you all have a great weekend - I have a tail to keep under surveillance. 


Spidey Cat

Spidey Cat, Spidey Cat!

Does whatever a Spidey can. Watch out! 
Here comes the Spidey Cat!

Impressive right? For reasons I don't understand, my parents have refused to open the door, or windows the whole week.


Abandoned Update

Mom was too busy to read your many suggestions of revenge before I had to make a plan of action. I have chosen to attach myself (sometimes literally) to Mom's leg at all times.

I am now tall enough that I can nip at the tender fleshy thigh as she lumbers about. She does not appreciate this development - and has expressed this in no uncertain terms - but I am a kitten, I forget. Some things.

I have allowed her to go to the human litter room alone once - but when it was taking her longer than I thought was necessary - I came to hurry her along. 

I am not sure how long this snoopervision will last, I have to say a nice poop on the pillow seems easier...

Gotta go friends - I think the Great White is on the move!



You will never believe what happened to me this weekend friends. It all started Thursday night when a stranger came over to the house. I thought all the talk about hoping I'd "Come Out" for the stranger, and my parents showing him where my food was odd.

I did get some extra treats out of the episode, so I was fine with it.

Then Friday morning, out came these fun zippered boxes with wheels. They had new smells, and I had a great time playing in them. Dad noticed how much fun I was having, and started adding his clothes in it. It was fun.

I was pretty tired by the time Dad wheeled them away. Then Mom and Dad snuggled me close and told me they were just gonna visit Dad's parents because they were celebrating 50 years of marriage, or something like that. They said I would hardly notice they were gone, because they would be back real soon.

You know what friends? It was a total lie. I absolutely knew they were gone! Two whole days, and nights!! And the stranger? He showed up to "Check on Me" and feed me.

Who does that? Who abandons their ample-sized kitten for two days and nights? Trusting a stranger to care for their furchild... sure Dad says he is his best pal, but he isn't mine.

Now I'm torn - do I love up on my parents so they never leave again, or do I nibble like I've never nibbled before? No one better be leaving this house again.


Flooflet Friday

It has been such a sad week for so many of my friends. 

We wanted to send pawsitive vibrations to everyone.

Quill and I are hopeful things are going to be looking up soon.

Until then please accept our e-purrs and e-hugs.


Windowless Wednesday

I guess I'm in a little bit of trouble friends. I guess this could have been another day during Consequence Week...

Every morning when I go to work in our office, Mom opens the window to let me look outside, and get some outdoor whiffs. I love it. Mom loved it too - says it gets me out of her hair (which I'm rarely in by the way).

Yesterday I saw a bug on the top part of the screen. Course I gotta kill it, right? Right. Sure it was on the outside, but I didn't know that for sure. I had to investigate, right? Right.

So I climbed up the screen to the tippy top. I figured out the bug was outside, and I was gonna jump right down while Mom was still on her conference call - cause she hadn't noticed me yet. Then I noticed how nice the view was, and I clung on. Then I jumped down, and I did it again.

I guess I was pushing it. Apparently ample-sized kitten claws - make ample-sized holes in window screens. Who knew? Oops. I was put in time-out, but nothing too serious.

Then this morning, there was a total lockout! No open window, no screen, and no whiffs. Sigh. Indefinitely!


Trashy Tuesday

Mom: Quill?

Quill: Huh? What? 
Mom: Do you think you could get out of the trash can? I need to use it, you know, for trash.
Quill: But Mom, it's a lot nicer without all that trash in here. It's a perfect hidey hole for an ample-sized kitten.


Consequence Week - Wrap Up

I have to say I am not fully convinced I liked Consequence Week. Along with the other consequences you already saw, here are the other ones Mom was happy to share with me:

  • The consequence of climbing all the way to the top of the screen door spidey-cat style, was the back door was closed. Although my parents were impressed, I still think this consequence stinks.
  • I was scolded as a consequence from the following actions:
    • Nibbling on Mom. 
    • Nibbling on Dad.
    • Whapping the light cord - by Dad, I do it so often, Mom barely notices.
  •  Mom laughing really hard during a conference call as I marched across the desk with Ratty, and my swing toy in my mouth. I loved this consequence cause I also got playtime with Mom after her call.
For those of you wondering - I still haven't enjoyed the consequence of Mom finding my baby tooth. The Kitten Tooth Fairy has still not come. My friend Wendy sent over this avatar of me and the consequence the Kitten Tooth Fairy might face if she doesn't pay up soon.

Looks just like me!
We can't have the consequence of the weekend not starting properly because of a lack of floof can we? Not on my watch friends!

By the way, the consequence of me giving one of these looks - snuggle-fest.


Consequence Week - Mystery

Mom said this is a consequence, but to me it is a total mystery.

During the Olympics I figured out I could jump onto the TV stand. It was so much fun friends! All the athletes were so fun to whap at with my Paw Of Doom!

My parents loved it too. They loved to see my kitten-head in the screen. They would yell out with such excitement! Then one of them would get up and put me down on the floor so I could practice jumping up there again.

It was the funnest game!

Then one day I was whapping at some runners, and the TV got angry and started getting really loud!

I got a little scared and jumped off. It must have made the TV feel better, cause it got quieter again. After that day, every time I jumped up on the stand, the TV got loud.

So I stopped jumping up there. So I guess the consequence of making the TV angry is it yells at you.


Consequence Week - Treats!

Mom: Take a look at this cool trick. Behold the little kitten treat - all by it's lonesome, with no kitten in sight.

 Whatever will become of the poor lonely kitten treat? I take my training clicker, and...

Quill! I haven't even be able to click it yet. You're ruining the photo shoot!

Quill: Sworry, chomp, chomp, Mom, chomp, and gulp. I just really love my treats! Here I'll pretend I don't notice the clicker again... see?

Mom: No, that isn't going to work, I don't have another kitten treat.

Quill: So how about the consequence of my coming over to soon is another treat? I know where they are! I even know the sound of the lid coming off, you really don't even need the clicker Mom!

Mom: I know. You are so smart! Now that I have you coming anytime I click, I don't really know what to do next to train you.Although you seem to have me very well trained. Here's another kitten treat, cause you're such a smart boy.

Quill: I love Consequence Week!


Consequence Week - Mom Edition

Quill: Mom I'm so excited to start Consequence Week!!

Mom: Me too! But there is going to have to be a small delay.

Quill: What? Why?

Mom: Well when some kittens carry off camera cords to secret locations, some Moms can't upload cute kitten pictures.

Quill: Oh, so that is a consequence?

Mom: Yep. A consequence is the effect, result, or outcome of something occurring earlier. 

Quill: My friends told me to be careful about Consequence Week, but maybe I don't mind consequences so much. Since the flashy beast is out of commission, can I chew on you instead?

Mom: No! How about you help me find the cord instead?


Flooflet Friday

It's Friday! You know what that means, a little flooflet!

Aside from being adorable, you might notice how huge I am. My body now stretches across the entire chair. Mr. Tail doesn't even fit anymore! 

I'm not even six months yet! I'm gonna be huge!

Remember next week is Consequence Week! I am super excited about it. I still don't know what a consequence is, but Mom is really excited to show me. 

I sure hope the Kitten Tooth Fairy shows up this weekend! Have a great weekend Friends!


Re-Decorating II

I wasn't done with my decorating project yet. I'm not one to slack. You'll see these flowers look much better off the shelf.

I look really cute next to them, but you can see they take up a lot of desk space, desk space I like to lounge on. So they have to move. 

I would be happy to have them dangle off the edge, but I just couldn't make it work. I had to let them go...

Yes! After a quick sniff, and a couple of whaps it is now in the perfect location! Victory!

What? I took an extended nap, and found Mom had put it all back the wrong way! Honestly, an office kitten's work is never done!



I'm still waiting for the Kitten Tooth Fairy to come, so in the meantime I've been spending my time re-decorating our office. Look at this shelf...

You can see it's a little cluttered with girlie objects. There isn't much room for a generously-sized kitten to snoopervise Mom's efforts. You can see how I have already improved it with this change.

So much nicer like this! Plus it's easy access to whap the little dangley crystals on this girly lamp. It's so much better now, and look how much roomier it is without the other flowers...

See? A huge improvement! It's still a touch cramped, so I'm not done yet. Don't worry Mom, I will make this desk look even better! You don't need to thank me.


Tooth Tuesday

It happened! A baby tooth has been found! Outside of my mouth!

Mom noticed one of my double-decker fangs was missing, and the hunt was on.

Mom noticed it on the floor right where her tasty cankles usually rest. I had been enjoying a nice snack before the tooth was discovered - I can't say the two were related.

Sparkle told me about the Kitten Tooth Fairy, so I am very excited to put the tooth under Mom's My Pillow. I wonder what treats, or toys the Kitten Tooth Fairy leaves?

My parents got all sappy about my tooth of course. All nostalgic about how big I am getting, and growing up. You know how parents can get. Lots of snuggling happened, which I didn't really mind too much.

I still have lots of baby teeths to come out, so I really hope the Kitten Tooth Fairy brings good stuff!
