Toysday Tuesday

Because we all know that some of us cats wouldn't be seen dead playing with expensive shop bought toys. Here's some tips for cheap and cheerful cat entertainment.
  • Paper (not plastic) bags without handles are great for pouncing on and hiding in.

Clementine from Life Frome A Cat's Perspective has a great demostrative post here.

  • Catnip stuffed and sewn into an old sock will make most cats delirious with happiness

Father Tom from Whisker Messages From A Chruch Cat has a wonderful post about catnip stuffed socks here.

  • Plastic shower curtain rings are fun either on their own, linked to others or tied to a piece of string and hung in an inviting spot.

  • Reflected sunlight, such as from a watch or piece of jewellery, gives cats something to chase without you barely having to move! A torch beam is also great for this purpose.

  • The tubes inside paper towels or toilet rolls will keep a cat happy.

  • 'Fetch' isn't just a game fir dogs; cats love it too. A ball of foil will make a satisfying noise, too.

  • Any ball will satisfy a cat, although those with holes in will help the cat to carry the ball more easily. An empty bathtub provides a fascinating arena for a cat with its ball.

These tips and more are available from Cats Micellany by Lesley O'Mara

Have fun!

Mithering Mancat Monday

Being a rough and tough introoder battling Mancat is a 24/7 job. No time for naps, except at nap time.

As you may have guessed we're back after quite a break from blogging. This is because The Mum went and got a baby in her tummy. Which is pretty careless if you ask me. Anyway, it won't be coming until after Christmas, so that's plenty of time to find it and give it the wrong directions.

Silly Saturday - I Won't Survive

I Won't Survive

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without Temptations by my side
I spent oh so many nights thinking how they taste so good
They are so NOM and they are my favourite fud

But now they're gone, from the counter space
I just walk around now, with a sad look upon my face
I should have chewed a little less
I should have not have made a mess
If I'd have thought for just one second of the taste that I would miss

So now go, walk out the door
Don't turn around now, until you've bought me lots lots more!
Don't look back and try to give me your 'Goodbyes'
I think I'll crumble, I think I'll just lay down and die

Oh yes I, I won't survive
Oh, as long as my tummy rumbles, I know that I'm half starved
I can feel all of my ribs and I assure you that's no fibs!
I won't survive, I won't survive. Hey, hey.

Mancat Monday - Nip Narna

There's nothing like a Nip Narna to start your Monday morning off right!

Charlie O'Marley x

P.S. We're still having major issues commenting on Blogspot blogs. We can comment on some but not all. It keeps asking us to sign in and when we do we go round and round in circles (and going round in circles is for dogs!). We have been told to clear our cache and our cookies, which we have done. The Mum says she has eaten all of the biscuits in the house, but it still hasn't made any difference.

We are still reading and visiting you though!

Toysday Tuesday

Yesterday was wet, windy and above all boring. That was until I found our Plague Ratsie, I love our Plague Ratsie! He was hiding out in the bottom of the toy box, along with all the other great toys. Why do they do that? Anyway...

RAWR! I'm going to bite and bunnykick you to Kingdom Come and back again, Ratsie. You'll think twice about hiding from me again!

Wait Ratsie! Where are you going? You can't get away from me!

Monochrome Mancat Monday

We've been experiencing some issues with Blogger lately, ever since it crashed. For a while we couldn't even get into our Dashboard, post or comment. So we apologise for the lack of activity.

Meanwhile, since I've had a lot of time to spare I have spent it checking all the windows for introoders. Shh! did you hear that? Probably nothing, working too hard. Better have a nap, hard work never hurt anyone, but you can't be too careful.

Suspicious Saturday - Whodunnit? - Catnip Capers

It's simply shocking! Shocking beyond all fathomable belief. Someone, some heinous person has been cutting our catmint plants and leaving the remains strewn all over the garden path. Who could have done such a diabolical thing? Who?

What do you think Charlie?

Sorry, what where you saying, Thomas? Never mind, I don't really care.

Woah! Maaannnn. Look at all the dragons! Pretty dragons, all the colours of the raaaaainbow...

Good help is so hard to find these days. If you don't talk to your cats about Catnip, someone else will!

Toesday Tuesday - Exercises with Lola

Ah, I see that you're back for another lesson in taking care of one's toesies.

You're late! But never mind that now, let's get down to business.

Now, we all know that cleanliness is next to catliness, so it is extremely important that one's toesies are clean and impeccably well groomed before one begins.

Make sure you get all of those hard to reach places, like the back of the hock. Once one's toesies are perfectly quaffed, then one is ready to begin with some gentle stretching and warming up exercises. Of course making sure that one is in a sun puddle speeds up the warming process.

Now s-t-r-e-t-c-h!

Elongate those toesies. You may wish at this point to stare blankly at nothing in particular and thing of relaxing things like, a dish of temptations or a spot of bird watching.

Now, with the warm up over we're ready to step it up a notch and attempt some of the more difficult poses, such as the 'Leg Over'. Here I am demonstrating the correct execution of the 'Leg Over'. Please note that this move is for intermediate kitties only!

You may want to check that your 'assets' are covered from view. A lady cat should never flash her 'assets', as it is unladylike and gives tom cats the wrong idea.

Excellent! You're all doing extremely well, so well in fact that I feel you're now ready to move up to the more complicated, expert moves. Here we have 'Salute to the sun'.

This is a very difficult move and as such should only be attempted in the company of a competent adult with ready access to all manner of cat treats. Again, do take great care to cover those 'assets'. Please note the careful placing of the tail.

So there we have it. Toesies feeling limber and gorgeously kissable. That was such a tough work out that I thoroughly recommend a gentle snooze in the sun. After all, we don't want to over do things now, do we?

Toesday Tuesday


Today I am here to talk to you about toesies. Toesies are an important part of one's anatomy, they help us with walking, stalking and well, clawing. So it is important that one takes good care of ones toesies.

One can of course accomplish this by careful washing and exercise of the toesies. Let me walk you through my toesie exercise regime.

Ready? Okay.

Right, that's enough of that. We don't want to over do it, do we?

Mandog Monday - In a flap

Keeping the house free from introoders is a very important job. A job I would be unable to do if it wasn't for the installation of these nifty viewing portals, we have one in nearly every external door to the house.

Now I can check the whole of the back yard without even having to veure outside. This is especially good on those cold, windy days - like today.

Silence and Rememberance

"I'll lend you, for a little while, a cat of mine," He said.

"For you to love while he lives, and mourn when he is dead.

It may be six or seven years, or maybe two or three,

But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and shall his stay be brief,

You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay, as all from Earth return,

But there are lessons taught down there I want this cat to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in my search for teachers true,

And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes,

I have selected you.

Now will you give him all your love - not think this labour vain,

Nor hate me when I come to call, to take him back again.
I fancied that I heard them say, 'Dear Lord, thy will be done.'

For all the joy this cat shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shower him with tenderness and love while we may,

And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.
And should the angels call for him much sooner than we planned,

We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand."

If, by your love, you've managed, my wishes to achieve,

In memory of him you've loved; be thankful; do not grieve.
Cherish every moment of your furry charge.

He filled your home with mews of joy the time he was alive.

Let not his passing take from you those memories to enjoy.

"I will lend to you, a cat", God said, and teach you all you have to do.

And when I call him back to heaven, you will know he loved you too.

~Author unknown

Remembering our friends who have left for Rainbow Bridge.
