OUR 2020 MEMORIAL DAY
by Inkee-Bear, Sophee, Spirit on May 25 2020 Add Comment

SPIRIT:  We're celebrating what today?

 

SOPHEE:  Memorial Day -- used to be called Decoration  Day. (Remembrance Day is a Holiday celebrated in other countries on our Veterans Day. My apologies.)

 

SPIRIT:  In memory of what?

 

SOPHEE:  In memory of all the animals and hoomans killed in wars.

 

SPIRIT:  Killed?  What's war?

 

SOPHEE:  It's kinda' like a big fight.  It's a hooman thing, I guess.

 

SPIRIT:  Why do they have wars and what makes them fight anyway?  Hoomans are smart, right?

IT'S MOM'S DAY 2020!!
by Gracee, Sophee on May 10 2020 Add Comment

 

GRACEE:  OMG!!  Mother's Day?  Didn't we just celebrate that? Guess not. I'm getting forgetful. Our Vet says I'm a Senior cat now. Do I look like a Senior cat? I don't feel like a Senior cat. My mirror doesn't tell me I'm a Senior cat.  Do I look like a Senior cat to you, Sophee? 

 

SOPHEE:  I'm not touching that with a 10-foot pole. I don't know what a Senior cat is anyway.  I do know what a Mean cat is. Hate to tell you, Gracee, but of the four of us, you're the only one that hisses and swats all of us.

WHO'S IN THE BOX NOW?
by on Apr 24 2020 Add Comment

INKEE-BEAR:  Like my box?  I have it all to myself!  This box came from Mary at Corsica Deli.  Know how I know?  We cats have super sensitive sniffers. Mine detects turkey, cheese, avocado, and bacon. That means my hooman's fav sandwich -- the turkey club -- was in this box.  Our hooman is so weird.  She only eats half the sandwich and puts the other half in the fridge. Not me!  I inhale every morsel set in front of me.  And, remember, it never hurts to ask for more!

THE COVID-19 EASTER (Click here if you can't see each cat's 'tail' about their Covid-19 Easter)
by Sophee on Apr 12 2020 Add Comment

Sophee says:  "I'm investigating this gray Easter Bunny in our cat tree -- wearing a mask like our hooman -- to fight Covid-19!  I don't know about your house but we're sure enough fighting it here.  Everything that comes in our house gets sprayed & sanitized.  It's a big hassle but our hooman reminds us:  'We gotta do this.  We're in this together & we WILL be in this together for however long it takes.'"

GOOD MORNING!
by Spirit on Mar 20 2020 Add Comment

Top of the morning to you!  We're doing what we're supposed to be doing -- quuar-end-teening -- or something like that. You do the same (if you can) cause we don't want you to have to go to your vet & get your temp taken in your you-know-where, get shots or coned or anything like that. 

SPIRIT:  Did you know that today is Saint Patrick's Day?  I wonder if hoomans will be out partying, drinking green beer and turning rivers green like they usually do.

A SLO-MO CATURDAY

Greetings from all of us on a slo-mo, overcast Caturday in Sunny (usually) Southern California. 

SOPHEE'S CHRISTMAS TREE (If you can't see this video, click HERE!)
by Sophee on Dec 24 2019 Add Comment

Our hooman loves Christmas Carols & blinking Christmas lights.  She just got my fav blanket out of the clothes dryer.  It's sooo warm & soft.  I'm gonna' curl up on it right here & take my much-needed catnap. We get so busy  this time of year. So catnaps are mandatory if you know what I mean.  You can listen with me to our hooman's fav Christmas Carols.  Merry Christmas to all & to all a good night!

EYES LIKE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
by Sophee on Dec 24 2019 Add Comment

Here's another pic of us in the dark. Our hooman didn't edit this pic or make it lighter.  My eyes are super bright cause I'm looking directly into the camera's flash.  The shine comes from that reflective layer at the back of my eyes called the 'tapetum lucidum."  Spirit sits above me but he's not looking so directly into the flash of the camera.  Our hooman says our eyes shine like Christmas Tree lights!  Merry Christmas!!

GIVING VS GETTING
by Inkee-Bear, Spirit on Dec 24 2019 Add Comment

Inkee: We're wishin' all you critters out there a Meowy Christmas!  Spirit:  Is't this when we get treats?  Inkee: Yes, but this is also when WE give treats to others. T'is the season of GIVING. Understand?  Spirit:  Yes, I understand. So who's GIVING  me MY treats? And when?  Inkee:  Sigh. T'is hopeless.

EYES THAT GLOW IN THE DARK
by Gracee on Dec 14 2019 Add Comment

My eyes are glowing like Christmas tree lights!  I'm off to the left of this picture peeking over the edge of my Sleepypod.  When it's dark or getting dark, if I look directly into a light or a flash of light, my eyes shine!  All cats' eyes glow at night when a light shines on them.  So do the eyes of dogs, deer & other night-time animals. We have a special reflective layer at the back of our eyeballs called the tapetum lucidum.

WOOLSEY FIRE FELINE VICTIM
by Inkee-Bear on Dec 8 2019 Add Comment

This Woolsey Fire kitty victim is being treated for his injuries. The Santa Ana winds blew the flames so fast that animals didn't know which way to go and many couldn't be caught by their owners before they themselves had to flee. Fortunately, there are hooman angels that went into the charred, still smoking neighborhoods and rescued what animals they could find. Some hid under cars, some waited on the front doorstep of their totally burned out home, some wouldn't be caught but managed to survive.

PARADISE LOST
by Spirit on Dec 8 2019 Add Comment

Confusion reigned for wildlife in the aftermath of the Paradise Fire in Northern CA in 2018. Experts say that the fire traveled football field lengths in a matter of seconds due to the Santa Ana winds. The single road in-&-out of Paradise was jammed & fraught with obstacles like fallen trees, electrical wires & utility poles. 

THE KITTEN SAVE
by Gracee on Dec 8 2019 Add Comment

Fire Captain Millosovich carried a cage of kittens out of harms way. He told AP Photgrapher Noah Berger that the cage fell from the bed of a pick-up truck as an evacuee drove to safety during the Paradise Fire in Northern CA in 2018.  A few of the kittens are orange like me. I'm not only the oldest cat in our house but I'm the only ORANGE cat in our house.  Saving kittens, particularly orange kittens, makes him a purr-fect hooman.

BRAVE FIREFIGHTERS
by Inkee-Bear on Dec 8 2019 Add Comment

This fire was a year after our fire, the Creek Fire. These Woolsey Fire flames are like monsters bearing down on this lone firefighter. These firefighters run TO the flames!  We run AWAY! They work 36 hour shifts, sleep on the ground -- no catnaps for these heroes. They're super hoomans!

HELPIN' & CLEANIN' UP AFTER THE CREEK FIRE
by Spirit on Dec 7 2019 Add Comment

Here we were helpin' our hooman clean ALL the window sills after that fire.  We're always tryin' to help out around the house, know what I mean?  The smokey smell inside the house was gone but we had to get rid of all that black, dirty, smelly soot stuff in the window sills.  Otherwise, it was going to smell up our house again when we opened our windows.  So Inkee-Bear and I were tryin' to help our hooman clean ALL the window sills. It was a tough job but somebody had to do it. Sigh.  READ our hooman's "Creek Fire 2 Year Anniversary (Dec 5)" article re our evacuation!

DECEMBER 5: THE CREEK FIRE TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY (If you can't see this video, click here)
by Spirit on Dec 7 2019 Add Comment

You can see in this video that it wasn't just hoomans and little animals that had to evacuate, it was big animals too. I'm not afraid to admit it,  I was worried. We didn't know what was going on. There were orange pieces of something flying through the air - our hooman said they were hot embers. Our hooman and Auntie Rika were rushing around tossing things in their cars. All we could do was wait. We stayed at Auntie Rika's one night then we had to go to a boarding place. Made us sick.  We finally came home. Read the "Creek Fire 2 Year Anniversay (Dec 5)" article.
