Cats vs Camera 1:1

Oh – I accidentally published this post! I wanted to write about our blog break before showing “normal posts” again. Well – now you got a picture of us anyways. The blog break will continue for some time: we’re in the middle of moving houses, and I’m very stressed. But don’t worry: we’re doing fine, and we’ll be back to blogging when we’ve settled down at our new place!

Victory! I finally got a nice picture of them together!

EasyPill Cat

For their own best:

Whoever combined the words easy, pill and cat is hopefully FAR AWAY from my kitchen right now.

(No, nothing serious – “only” deworming before their annual vaccination shots.)

P.S. Sorry for the blog break, we’ll be back to normal next week. Thank you for all your comments and thoughts – I haven’t had time to catch up yet.

Now the drugs do work

I’m not surprised that Äiti has difficulties to take sharp pictures – her drugs are too good! I mean, I was just casually walking through the kitchen when one of my innocent paws touched a Polliwog. Next thing I know, I was laying intoxicated on the floor.

… going wild. Ok, at least by my standards. I could name some cats who think that this is normal behavior.

Now… what was I originally planning to do? I can’t remember, but it sure was something very important?

Dashing through the snow

Huh huh. I was just jumping into a very compelling box, and next thing I know, I landed upside-down several meters away!

I expected Mom to comfort me, but she was only laughing. She said that smaller accidents are part of the sledding fun.

Not sure what she means, but I certainly wasn’t laughing all the way. Quite the opposite I’d really need some treats to recover!

On Watch

l hope you all had a great weekend. I’m a bit exhausted because I was very busy with my guarding duties. I’m glad the human went to work today, so I don’t have to protect her all the time.

To be fair – she really tried to make herself useful as she finally got animal tracking books from our library. Mom was very proud of her detective skills when she identified footprints from Leporidae. However, she forgot to measure the size, and doesn’t know whether these belong to a wild rabbit or a hare.

Sigh. I’m afraid she’ll never become a great hunter. In the opposite to a certain brave, strong and talented predator!

It’s strange though – Mom thinks that this feline predator doesn’t really know what she’s doing?

Eventually, Kajsa joined us, and the felines finally outnumbered humans again.

Propaganda Bluff

Feline Friends! Just because SHE has thumbs doesn’t justify her report of us innocent kitties being involved in some kind of Hostile Takeover. First of all, it’s not her, but our computer. Second – it’s not true that we occupy the keyboard all the time! 

I apologize for the poor quality, but I had to proof that a peaceful co-existence is possible. At least from the feline side: it’s HER who doesn’t want to share the keyboard.

how to work from home when you've cats

Hahahahahahahahaha. Talk about hard evidence! IN YOUR FACE, human! Eh … ok, almost always peaceful.

Cat4-001A blog hop is a specific topic bloggers write about on a certain day. The blog hop (hopping from one blog to another) collects all links, and makes it easy to see how others have interpreted this topic. This posting is part of The Cat On My Head’s blog hop Selfie Sunday.

Laundry Day

The lazy human finally emptied this very compelling laundry bin, and I moved in immediately.

Hm. She says that I’m on the wrong side because I’m too dark for light-colored laundry?

Sigh. And of course Kajsa had some objections as well.

Ok then, I’ll change sides. Oh, and don’t you complain about blurry pictures! And why are you laughing?

How did you see that coming???

Whatever. I’m on the dark side now, hehe: a great base camp for my regime. Now, get me some treats!

Greetings from the basket

So here I am, in my wonderful basket. And yes, it’s the very same basket I rejected. You wonder what happened?

Mom put the basket for a second on a table because she was rearranging things. And there I was, ready to take over, to fill this basket with my gorgeous body.

So yes, I’m very satisfied with myself and my life right now.

Mom says that she’ll sometimes need the desk for herself … but I know it’d break her heart to remove the basket now when I finally use it.
