Hiss


Beware when a cat hisses at you. It’s a warning. We may not like you. We may not like the way you’re treating us. Or perhaps we just don’t feel well. Cats like humans can get irritable. We get sick on occasion. Hopefully, not very often. When our favorite people die or never come back to visit us or be with us, we get depressed. We can get upset when new people come into our lives. But a hiss is just a warning. It means we want you to give us some space. Just leave us alone for a bit. … Continue reading Hiss

Being Shy Can Cause Others to Overlook You


I wish it wasn’t true. I know it’s true though. Sometimes even cats get overlooked because we’re shy. In my case, I can be fast and I know how to hide. But in my girl’s case, people just like to overlook her because she’s not outgoing enough for them. I don’t understand that attitude. Being shy shouldn’t cause this reaction. I know we don’t always want to be around others, but does that mean we ask to be overlooked? No, it doesn’t. I know I’m quiet. I still have things to say and write about. I have much to contribute … Continue reading Being Shy Can Cause Others to Overlook You

Kittens


Can be quite annoying until they grow up. Can be too playful. I had to raise one and he adored me from the start. I couldn’t stand him at first. He wanted to play all the time. Yet, I know I was a kitten once. I did play then too. But I don’t think I was ever as bad as Spot was. I’m just not silly enough to have been like that. Kittens have so much to learn. I know I learned a lot as a kitten. I also taught Spot how to be a good cat. He learned from … Continue reading Kittens

Lily & Nuri Star in Game of Cats


My girl likes to doodle or actually draw at times. One thing she can draw is cats. So, she drew some cats and eventually came up with a little comic with just one episode so far known as Game of Cats. It features Princess Tiger Lily versus Lady Nuria. It’s just line drawings, but it gets the point across. Those who have seen this as a movie find it funny. I’m not surprised people find it funny. My girl can be silly and she adores us cats quite a bit. So, it’s a good thing for her to do when … Continue reading Lily & Nuri Star in Game of Cats

Playmate


For kittens and those cats who remain playful as adults, having a playmate is a good thing. I didn’t mind playing so much when I was a kitten. It was how my brothers and I learned how to fight and how to play without hurting each other. It can be a good way to deal with tensions with other cats without killing each other. Just a playful way of letting others know you’re a bit annoyed, but won’t actually attack and cause harm. I know I enjoyed having Spot around after I had gotten used to him. We used to … Continue reading Playmate

Lily is Old & Cranky


Lily is getting older and doesn’t feel great much of the time. It can happen to any cat. We all age and sooner or later we do feel old. My girl just hopes we still get to experience good health too. She doesn’t mind if we slow down and require some humoring now and then. She’s good at taking care of us. She just doesn’t want us to get sick. Lily has digestive issues and that can’t be helping with her mood. So, she gets cranky at times. My girl knows that and so doesn’t hurt Lily whenever she poops … Continue reading Lily is Old & Cranky

Nuri Still Wants to Play


At eight years old, Nuri still likes to play. She tries to play with Lily and that doesn’t go over very well. Lily doesn’t like to play and thinks and insists Nuri is trying to attack her royal highness. So, my girl does the best thing she can do. She plays with Nuri. My girl tells Lily she plays with Nuri to protect her royal highness. Lily still doesn’t like it. If she had her way, Nuri wouldn’t be around. My girl won’t agree to any such terms as she and Nuri are a bonded pair. Only death can separate … Continue reading Nuri Still Wants to Play

Servants


As a cat who has lived indoors and outdoors, I can say it’s wonderful to have servants tending to my every need. It’s rough living outside. Inside it’s possible to have at least one good servant taking care of one. However, finding the right one can take a long time. I know when I finally found the right one, I had to train her as she didn’t know much about taking care of cats. I’m glad I took the trouble to train her. She turned out to be the best one to take care of me. She was a little … Continue reading Servants

Nuri & Lily Had to Share a Garage


It has reached my attention that Lady Nuria and Princess Tiger Lily had to share a garage for two months. Lucky for them, my girl slept out there with them. I know that had to help out. I remember when Spot and I had to stay in a garage together, I thought it was great when my girl slept out there with us. Nuri and Lily had two litter boxes and separate food and water bowls. Nuri didn’t have a real problem with it as my girl kept her company. Lily had some trouble. She was separated from her humans … Continue reading Nuri & Lily Had to Share a Garage

Vet


Not a human I particular like to see, but sometimes it’s necessary. I prefer that I don’t take any medication even when many would think it would be better. I don’t like medication as my girl knows. The few times she’s had to give me some, she would use a liquid that I couldn’t spit up. She’d have to chase me and catch me first. But getting routine check ups and vaccines are a good idea. It’s a preventive sort of medicine. Not pleasant and I did my best to pretend I was somewhere else when they were examining me, … Continue reading Vet
