Tessa

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?

 

Secret Activities

Find the cat!

Ok, I guess this wasn’t difficult.

The door of my bedroom is small. I was too lazy to fold the laundry rack, put it to another room and to rearrange all clothes. So when I just wanted to fix a small thing on the floor, I decided to store the clothes horse on my bed.

Mistake number 1: the rack fell on its side.
Mistake number 2: I thought it was funny-cute that Tessa immediately took advantage of the opportunity to place her fur everywhere.
Mistake number 3: I didn’t get the degree of “placing her fur everywhere”.

The laundry dried. I folded towels and didn’t pay attention to their color. Some days later, I was puzzled over weird strains on my towels. It didn’t make any sense until I found parts of a hairball on a sheet. Turned out that Tessa must have yakked a very juicy hairball while she was sitting under the tilted clothes horse. Gnarg.

I’ve no idea how she succeeded doing this in secret. Throwing up is very hard work for Tessa, and is normally accompanied by weird “pumping” sounds while hopping backwards at the same time.

 

Petite Boxing Day

We’ve great news! Mom became nocturnal and spends her nights with us! She doesn’t appreciate her new style of life though, and says that it isn’t funny to cough all night. However, she’s feeling better for each day, so don’t feel sorry for her (it only makes her lazy and demanding). Thank you for all your greetings and wishes: Mom will answer you soon.

Now to the important part – it’s Boxing Day! All boxes belong to cats, so it’s today we celebrate Catmas. I wanted to go petite this year.

Mom thinks that this box is too small for me…. I don’t agree.

Told ya!

 

Graymailing

Ahem, Tessa? I really really need to get up now. You need to move.

Ahem. That’s not what I meant.

Ok, ok, ok. It’d break my heart to force you getting up now. I guess I can take the later bus today.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering: I’m wearing a bathrobe. Tessa always waits in front of the bathroom when I shower, and wants to cuddle as soon as I put on my bathrobe… I’m again so addicted to her soft fur that I can’t say no. Just one of those confessions people make online.

You’re my sunshine, my only sunshine

Can you believe that Mom seriously thought that it was too difficult to jump onto the fridge?? Well. Kajsa was on the fridge a minute after she came to our new kitchen for the first time, and it’s been one of the most popular spots ever since. The surface was of course way too hard for our delicate bellies, so we made Mom give us her acupressure mat. Right… as if she’d ever used it, haha. Why do humans invent uncomfortable mattresses??

There’s a very tiny time frame when the sun is shining on this spot. The silly human is so surprised that I know exactly when the sun will come around.

I’ll go the kitchen at about 2 pm, but of course only when the sun is shining. Why is this so amazing? Does she think I’m stupid? Why should I keep sunshine timetables on a rainy day? I’m a very important and busy cat, and have lots of things to do, it’s hard as it is to find time for my afternoon nap on sunny days.

Oh yes, just look at this gorgeous paw, the burning paw of power, ready to rule over the world, and especially over all silly male cats up North.

It’s a pity that the dark time of the year has just begun, but I’m hoping for a sunny 2 pm nap every now and then.

Fail

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???
