Cat versus mouse

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 disturbs me when i want to sleep


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?

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!

I got my cats on one picture

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.

Feline Embellishment

Mom was searching for something called “tape” because she wanted to wrap a present. I don’t understand why she’s upset – I really like this funny ribbon!

cat loves to play with tape

It’s strange though – Mom didn’t appreciate my help! Quite the contrary, she shooed me away and said that I have already done my share of embellishing.  Eh ??? Turned out that I’m her prime suspect in this lost-tape business?

My response in selfies (that’s apparently what the kittens nowadays do)

Really, it was Not-Me ! Besides: even IF I had a paw into that tape thing – doesn’t embellishment mean that something looks better??

I love you

Humans never stop surprising us: today is Love Your Pet Day. How weird that they need a special holiday for loving us?

*** CAUTION! CHEESY CONTENT *** Mom agreed and said: “I don’t care what day is today, as long as I can spend it with you.”

I couldn’t agree more – now, give me some treats!

The other side of the story

Oh, just in case someone feels sorry for Mom because we reject baskets and three-floored cardboard houses: the story also goes the other way around.

I was thrilled when this wonderful box showed up.

cat cant get enough of boxes

It has the perfect size.

cat is very picky about boxes

… and I can continue working for James Bond.

So what does she mean with “I need this box for something else” ??

Wrap Around The Clock Tonight

Feline friends! It’s not always easy to be the dominant species of the world. Do you also feel sorry for your humans when you see them struggling? They may have thumbs, but their body is otherwise underdeveloped.

Our stupid human fell down the stairs and sprained her ankle. Sigh. It’s hard to believe that her body is so inflexible, and that her ankle can’t handle an ever so small fall. However, it’s not her fault that she didn’t get a perfect feline body. And to be fair, she’s helping us out with our thumb problem: she opens cans for us every day.

So we decided to forgive her for using our pillows to elevate her foot. We were also busy nursing her, one of us sat on her chest whilst the other observed her foot from the kitchen countertop (note Tessa in the background!).

sprained ankle and cats

It’s strange though, she didn’t appreciate our help when she changed bandages. Ok, maybe we got a bit too excited about this loooong cord, but we really just wanted to check if she had wrapped her ankle correctly! Bah. Ever heart of gratitude??
