Being your cats’ foolish doorman

Hellooooo? I want to go out, but the window is closed! Mom? Meow? I want out!

Oh yes, I do know that the balcony door is open, but that’s totally irrelevant here.

I mean – is she flexible in her habits to go out? Of course not – she always uses the door. So why can’t I also have my own preferences?

 

Training for the Olympics

Feline friends – I’m very sorry for the poor quality, but I can’t help sharing pictures of my gorgeous athletic body.

  1. Can anyone hire a better photographer? Mom sucks.
  2. Is this technically a handstand? Mom says no, but I think she’s just jealous: we all know that humans are stuck in inflexible bodies. Ok, some humans can stand on their hands, but certainly not our human.
  3. Can a cat participate in the Olympic Games?

 

Help! Have you ever grown catnip plants?

Total number of catnip plants: 14
Total number of plants my cats find interesting: 0

Staged picture. I put treats on the table to get a picture of Tessa and Kajsa in the jungle.

Their ignorance drives me mad. Why are they not interested?? Any ideas? Does dried catnip smell more intensive than fresh?

Other random questions:

  1. Is it me or does catnip smell a bit like weed?? I thought my neighbors were smoking marijuana until I found out that the smell is actually coming from our apartment.
  2. What is the difference between Nepeta faassenii (blue flowers. Common names catmint / Faassen’s catnip) and Nepeta cataria (white flowers. Common names catnip / catmint)? We have the latter.
  3. Will I ever learn that my cats are spoiled rotten and will ignore most things I do for them?

 

Cat Logic on Closeness and Distance

What is it now? Are you surprised that we’re sitting side by side? Thought we only do that when our catsitter is around* ?

Well. We do indeed sit close to each other here, but technically, Kajsa is on the fridge and Tessa on the Grand Throne – something compleeeeetly different from sharing one piece of furniture. So don’t ask why we can’t hang together on your king-size bed; you’re comparing apples and oranges.

* Cats will understand, but if you’re a human reader: yesterday one was sitting on the scratch tree and the other on the laundry bin. Again – close to each other, but on different furniture. Makes total sense to us.

 

Things humans do when no one is watching

Our silly human was very surprised when she got this picture from our catsitter: we never sit like that when Mom’s home.

Come on! Why should we behave the same with a different person? Did she really think that we’d sit all day on our usual spots and miss her?

Besides, when she gets visitors, she also behaves different, and does a lot of things she normally doesn’t. Like closing the bathroom door. Getting dressed. Eating at the diner table instead of in front of her computer. Covering her mouth when she’s coughing. Hiding our tampons. Picking her nose only in the bathroom.

Ups. Guess she wanted to keep that a secret, hehe.

 

 

The cat inside a double-glazed window

My favorite spot in summer is not on our balcony.

No, that’s only something Mom would like to see. I again love that it’s warm enough to open the inner window of our double-glazed windows.

What? Just because you built a freaking catio and cat-proofed all other windows with nets, doesn’t mean that I prefer fresh air to this cozy window spot?

Now get lost and find some new hobbies. I want to take a nap.

 

Red Tooth Fairy

Any idea why Mom chose red nail polish to distinguish Kajsa’s toothbrush from Tessa’s? Hehehe.

She’s crazy. She’s been brushing our teeth once a week for over a year now, thinking that we’d get used to it, eventually making it to a nice daily routine. *shudder*

Worst of all – despite her efforts, we do have tartar, and will soon meet our vet again. You should think that she’d learn from her mistakes and stop brushing our teeth, but she just gets encouraged to brush our teeth more often.

WHAT?? Don’t big companies sell very tasty snacks for dental health ?!? Mom is very suspicious of them: if snacks helped minimizing plaque,  the market for human health products would explode in endless variations of dental snacks. Bah. Just because humans don’t have dental snacks means that we can’t have any?* Human logic anyone?

*Although she’s promised to give it a second thought and try, so let’s see. A portion of tasty dental treats could indeed become a very nice daily routine!
