Granny lives in an apartment building in the center of a big city. Mom had the brilliant idea to take me for a walk to the basement because she thought I’d like to explore long corridors.

cats hate closed doors

Eh …. shouldn’t she know that we cats hate closed doors??? And that we love windows?? Total fail. After several attempts to make her open doors, I showed her in no uncertain terms that I had enough. Bah. A basement where people store a lot of stuff in boxes sounds fun, but not this stupid corridor. Honestly – what was she thinking???

Feigned innocence

So Tessa thinks she’s a very smart cat, but I’m not only more beautiful, but also the master brain in this house. Tessa is far more playful, and it’s normally her who’s playing pranks. However, I often manage to fool Mom and make her blame Tessa for my mischief.

Mom heard a metallic sound in the bathroom and knew immediately that Tessa was playing with one of her favorite toys, the shower drain cover. I’m just walking casually in the bathroom, but Tessa is hiding and very interested in the drain strainer. Mom assumes that she’s hiding for her next attack.

ich wars nicht katze

Bad luck that Mom accidentally took a picture on her way to the bathroom. This photo shows the crime scene 3 seconds earlier… Tessa isn’t in the bathroom at all! And Mom got hard proof and can identify the perpetrator on this piece of evidence. Humph.

It was only because she was going trough her pictures that she saw what really happened. Bah. Surveillance state??

Intergenerational competence

Thank you for your support, kitties, I’ll go for the maximum number of boxes!

Today I want to share some inter-generational wisdom with you to get maximum attention from your humans! Occupying Mom’s laptop is a very powerful tool to get her full attention. However, I’ve never seen Granny with a laptop, so I tried sitting on her newspaper. Success!

Even better – on the newspaper and crossword at the same time.

Hehehehehehe. Needless to say: look as sweet and innocent as possible!

Intruders and traitors

They call me Closet Cat because they think that I’m the sole ruler of Granny’s closet. I wished this was true.

Tessa for example hasn’t quite understood what sole ruler means, and claims the closet to herself when I’m busy with other duties. And no, the closet IS NOT big enough for both of us, Mom. 

Cats fight about closet

However, Tessa is not the worst intruder. Hiding is not helping me, Mom takes this *#*§’* chair to fetch me. She says that we need to get brushed regularly in summer time because we’re loosing so much hair. Bah.

  1. How could she possibly see me??
  2. Granny told us that Mom was like me as a child: she hated brushing, and would hide as soon as she saw Granny with a brush. So why on earth is she now betraying her own vows?

The Brain Of Homo Sapiens

Yepp – Kajsa was photobombing with her whiskers yesterday!

Feline friends!

We all know that humans are weird, but the recent events at our holiday domicile are in a class of its own. Granny has a great sofa: perfect for two humans and two cats … IF the humans were sitting which is only fair as they’re so tall! However, both Mom and Granny are very egoistic: they lay down (why do they have beds then?) and force us to go away! This is an ongoing battle, we were already fighting for our rights in January!

Now, the real bummer: we had no idea that you can turn the sofa into a queen size bed!!!

cat doesn't want to share sofa with me

Mom explained that “we” only need the sofa bed when “we” have overnight guests.

Eh what??? To make this one clear:

  1. Our humans complain that we take too much space
  2. They could significantly enlarge the sofa
  3. They say it’s only necessary when they’ve overnight guests
  4. Tessa and I are staying at Granny’s place for several weeks
  5. However, we aren’t considered overnight guests
  6. They say the sofa is too small for all of us

Any idea how they managed to get a sapiens behind their species?

On the closet

Kajsa spends her holiday on this wonderful closet, and she’s even trained Mom to play with her there.

Indeed, a flying Valerian mousie is always welcome.

We wonder when she’s “coming out of the closet”, as we suspect that she’s pondering over a great master strategy. And of course she had to rest a lot, too – the last weeks in Finland were very exhausting. Thank you for asking, King P., we’ll write more posts on the new apartment and moving soon!

Who guards the guardians?

I swear it wasn’t me. I’m just making sure that nobody gets hurt because Granny is sometimes very clumsy.

I mean, I was just being nice – exactly what Mom wants us to be at our holiday home. Now, this is very difficult to bear, but Mom didn’t believe in my innocent intentions? She clearly confused offender and guard!!

We’re back

Feline friends! What a summer!

neugierige katzen

We moved houses, but had no time to settle down at our new apartment before we went on a long vacation to Germany! Many of you know that we’re normally living in Finland, but staying for several weeks a year in Germany at “our” grandparents’ place. We’re stuck for another two weeks in Cologne, but to be honest – we love living with Granny. Mom says that Kajsa and I get spoiled rotten here, but so does she…. Hehe.

Mom slept for about 4 weeks in a row, but said that she’s now getting ready for blogging again. That’s great, but I’m for now far more interested where she hid my treats this time. Besides, any ideas why my new nickname is Mole ???
