The Ess

Ya know what we forgot to do?  Talk about the Ess that TBT got for us a few months ago.  He says we are ungrateful sometimes.  Well, its more that we get behind on out posts an sometimes forget things.

So he brought home an Ess in September an we love it.  Well mostly me.

 Its the best part of my evening.  TBT carefully tosses mousies through the tunnel part of it, an I LOVE that!  I grab them as they run through.  I run all over it, unner the tunnel, around the sides with my claws, all around.  I love it.  I even drag it around.

Usually, its in the living room, but sometimes I even drag it into the bedroom.  Thats a way down the hallway!!! I need ta figure out how ta get it up on the bed so I can play with it on TBT at night.  He might NOT appreciate that so much, so maybe I better keep it in the corrner of the bed, where I usally sleep.

What can I say?  I like the Ess, I like the bed, the 2 ought to be together.  I havent figured out how to lift it to the bed, though, and Marley an Ayla wont help.  Anny suggestions?

Weighty Issues

Iza:  Oh Bast, its getting worse.  TBT googled Tonkinese an I'm sposed ta weigh only 8-10 pounds MAX!  If I have ta lose 4 pounds, I'm gonna die! 

I look like THIS:

He thinks I should look more like THIS:
Now tell me, is THAT just wrong for me or NOT?

Um, gotta admit, is DOES look good...  Dang, I might be able to climb a tree like that.  Evan catch a evil skwerral!  Cuz I AM allowed outside iffen I want to go (cuz I dont try ta climb the fence)..

I gotta admit, I sure would be a outside huntress like THAT!

An TBT says he sure would like me better on his lap with a few fewer pounds of weight.  Seiriousy, I put his legs to "sleep".

So what do ya think?

Wensday Weigh Day

IZA:  Im in Trubble!  We all got weighed today.  Last time was almost 3 months ago.

Ayla has gone from 5.5 lbs in July (when her last spay operation was successful) to 9.5 lbs in Toctober, but is down to 9 lbs now.

Marley weighed 12 lbs in Toctober, an is 11 lbs now.

I weighed 12.5 lbs in Toctober, an now I weigh 14 lbs!   TBT just looked at me an said "DIET"!  Oh this is awful.  I pleaded that I was normal weight.  He said "Adult female siamese, 8-10 lbs".  Ouch!  OK, but we think Im really a tonkinese, we're "sturdier".  He said "OK, I'll give you 2 lbs for that".  Oh Bast, that only gets me to 12 lbs at best!

So I tried arguing that I get all the exercize I can.  I run up an down the cat trees, I chase all the mousies he tosses me at dinnertime, an I have to go up and down the stairs ta get to the litterbox.  But as soon as I said it, I KNEW that was the wrong thing ta say!  If Im getting exercize, theres only one other way ta lose weight - less foods!  "Liposuction?", I said, hopefully.



"OK" I said, "how ya gonna DO it?"  Ha, THAT set him back!

Or so I thought...

After just a minit, he said he had some ideas:
1. No treats (which are really just Eukanuba kibble)
2. I eat in the Mews Room an get smaller portions of Stinky Goodness
3. He chases me around inside the house an hour a day for more exercize
4. Secret plan he wont tell me

Oh, man, that last one worries me most...

An Announcement

We are changing email addresses!  The Big Thing changed us from Comcast to Verizon.  Apparently it was a "cat vs big rat" struggle to get our new emails set up.  But it all got fixed.

The main point is that our new email for the blog is "marksmews2118 AT verizon DOT net".  You know to use the @ and . symbols, we trust.  We hope this isnt confoosing.

TBT says we get half of the savings next month in neat new foods.  Cool!

But the main thing is, we wanna let ya know our new email address is "marksmews2118 AT verizon DOT net".  So iffen ya got us on a list, ya gotta change it!  The current Comcast addresses will vanish in a couple days.

Mancat Monday

Sometimes, Ayla is TOO attentive.  Ya know?

I need SOME space SOMETIMES.

Window Whiffies

The weather was OK yesserday, but not purrfect, so we got Window Whiffies fer about 30 minits!

Enjoy with us...

The neighbor cat is outside!

He BETTER not come in OUR yard!

Noises outside.
  I see the neighbor cat again, walking shamelessly in its yard!
 Iza wants a better view than my butt...
 Checks the left side of the yard...
Accidental butt-touching...
We were both embarrassed.

Of course, it helped that he was lookin out the door at the time...

Oh Bast, when the ecitement of prezzies hits, all sensible thoughts go RIGHT out the windows!!!

We saw the word "Parker" on our Secret Paws prezzie package an we jumped off the roof of the house onto the weeds of a conclusion.  So apologies AND proper thanks are in order!  In order to do this as best we can to make up fer our blind prezzie lust, we have decided to do a "Top 10 List" like on the David Letterman talk show (but we're not good at jokes):

10.  If the package says it was from Finland, it probably wasn't from someone we know in the US!  Smarter kitties would have noticed something like THAT! 

9.  We are not just stupid, we are PROFOUNDLY stupid, like American Republican politicians.

8.  The Big Thing should NOT EVER EVER EVER try to drink wine AND post at the same time.

7.  The Punapippuri are the BEST kitties in the whole world!

6.  There are even MORE of them than there are at Katnip Lounge, an we dint know THAT was possible!!!

5.  Their names are:  Harris, Lewis, Stran, Aila, Punapippuri, Tuomo, Mirsku, Rilli, Risto, Roosa, Ruska, Pekka, Jaava, and Jura (and we SURE hope we got all those names right)!  Our paws are REALLY not used to some of those letter combinations. 

4.  Aiti (sorry we can't add the umlats or whatever they are called, because it probably matters) has to be one of the BEST Beins in the world.

3.  If the labels on the toys are not in English, it probably means they came from FAR AWAY!

2.  If the labels on the toys are in Finlandia (Finlandish?, Finnish?), it means they are things we NEVER saw HERE.

1.  Did we mention that the Punapippuri are the BEST kitties in the world?  EVERYKITTY should go visit them!
Aita Parker and Kissa:  Please forgive us our error.  These were the loveliest prezzies we ever got an we are going to TRY to teach The Big Thing to read WHOLE address labels in the future.  The sisal rope/feather toy is now a house favorite, we all LOVE the wand toy, and we can't WAIT to get at that glove thing on Chrissymouse Day!  Ayla is especially taken by the glitter mousies!  She carries then all over the house.

And we are REALLY glad that you celebrate Solstice!

Ayla, Iza, Marley, and The Big (dumb) Thing

(Now, evrykitty,  go back an read our previous post with this "accuratified" in mind)

Secret Paw Prezzies!

UPDATE:  OOPS, we got the sender wrong.  Dumb The Big Thing!!!  See the above post for corrections and apologies...

OK, we know it was early.  It was early in the morning, and it was before Crissymouse Day.  But we do Solstice Day here cuz it is a natural event, and we couldn't wait anny longer ta open our prezzies on the day it was allowed!

We bugged TBT all early morning.  We just couldn't wait an were so ecited.  So he got up. dragged yesserdays clothes on, stretched and griped, an got out in the rooms.

We got ta open our prezzies.  We were so thrilled!  Our Secret Paw was PARKER!  One of our best friends!  So we attacked the package.  We COULDNT rip it open!  Man, Parker must have stock in wrapping tape!  Even TBT hadda use all his strengths an thumbs (and a knife) to pull the package open!

But what great stuff we found when he DID!

Here is the most wrapped package we EVER got.
We sniffed it thoroughly.
There was a lovely card!
Iza found a cool toy right off.  Sisal rope with FEVVERS!!!  And Nip.
She went right after it...
Chased into all the corners of the house.
And there were THESE mosusies.  Oh man, we nevver had GLITTERY mousies afore!!!
We think this glove has multi-mousies dangling, but TBT says we should save THAT one fer later.  We think he wants to play with it first (to see how it operates).
 And A package of mousies like we never saw before...
 Iza sniffies...
Ayla sniffies...
Marley sniffies...   We all approve.
Iza takes the last package from the table to the floor while I'm not looking...
She REALLY likes it, so it must be great.
She claims it.  But all toys here belong to all.  She knows that!
Look, its a wand toy!!!
Many colors, too.  And a mousie at the end.
Iza attacks it!
Waits for it to move...
I help it move.  Iza goes crazy loving it!
She waits while it stops moving...
Then attacks when it moves.
 And again!  She LOVES this thing...
I left it on the floor.  In just a hour, it has been pulled around from the living room, down the hall, into the bedroom, back down the hall, down the stairs, and back up...

Parker, thank you so much fer these REALLY GREAT toys!!!  We are havin a wunnerful time with them!

Ayla, Iza, and Marley, an The Big Thing
