TIME TO CELEBRATE NATIONAL SIBLINGS' DAY!
by Gracee, Sophee on Apr 10 2019 Add Comment

SOPHEE:  Gracee, what are you looking for? GRACEE:  More siblings. SOPHEE:  Why? Sometimes you act like you don't like the ones you have!  GRACEE:  That's precisely why I'm looking! I want a little brother that stays little. SOPHEE:  Little cats always get big & guy cats are always bigger than girl cats. We're girls so we're little -- like our mom, Red Lola.  So, let's celebrate the siblings we do have on National Siblings' Day.  GRACEE:  You can celebrate. I'm gonna' look.

WHAT'S NATIONAL SIBLINGS DAY?
by Inkee-Bear, Sophee on Apr 10 2019 Add Comment

INKEE-BEAR:  Exactly what is National Siblings' Day?  I like to paw-tee but I gotta' know fur what!  SOPHEE:  I know what it is. It's the day when we celebrate being together, in our house, with our hooman. It's who we play with, who we cuddle with, who we don't play with, who we can't cuddle with. Understand?  INKEE-BEAR:  I get it. But did you know that you & I have the same Dad?  His name is Kool Kat.  SOPHEE:  I knew that. It's cool to have a dad named Kool cause we are, afterall, cool - if you know what I mean.

SOPHEE'S AWARD INSPECTION
by Sophee on Mar 30 2019 Add Comment

What's this? An award? For us? The Cat Authors? -- & our hooman?  Yowl!  Time for a pawsome celebration! We tell our hooman what we think. Sometimes we show her what we do -- dopey or serious -- & she puts it on our blog. Congrats too to all the other 'Certificate of Excellence' winners!  The Cat Writers' Association is our home where we're mentored, where we learn & where we meet other like-minded critters -- big & small.

NOW WHAT?
by Gracee on Mar 29 2019 Add Comment

Picture time? Photo opportunity? Seriously? I'm starving -- anyone can see that -- & you, my unfavorite-hooman-at-this-very-moment, persist in taking my picture? Have I not trained you properly? When it's time to eat, it's time to eat!! I don't care if my siblings are waiting for their dinner where our food bowls are -- in the kitchen -- on the FLOOR I might add.  I wish to eat here -- at the dining room table! Now!  I don't care if you say I'm so cute or that you love me. Think food! 

HOOMAN, HAVE YOU NOTICED?

Hooman, haven’t you noticed? T'is dinner time. I’m waiting, I’ve been waiting. How long must I wait? I mean , really. Can you believe this?  

SPIRIT'S GETTIN' READY
by Spirit on Mar 23 2019 Add Comment

OK.  It worked. Told ya' it'd work.  My hooman says we can go outside now. But I have to be either in our secured stroller or on a leash & wear this harness thing. But I don't want to be seen in this flowery, hoody getup. How embarrassing. If I gotta' wear something, then at least get me something that expresses me, the REAL me -- something more manly if you get my drift. Do I have to 'splain everything to my hooman? 

SPIRIT SULKS
by Spirit on Mar 23 2019 Add Comment

I'm watchin' my hooman from our loft. I told her that I want to go outside!  She said no -- she's busy -- hoomans say things like that. So, I wanna' see just how busy she really is!  Know what I mean? So, I'm watchin' & puttin' on my best 'sad sack' face -- it works sometimes. The object is to make her feel bad, real bad -- & guilty. I'm sure I can do it. I've done it before. Besides, it's worth a try, right?   

RESTIN' UP FOR SAINT PATRICK'S DAY
by Inkee-Bear on Mar 16 2019 Add Comment

I'm not entirely sure what our hooman has planned for Saint Patrick's Day. But, I want to be ready so I'll start restin' up right here, right now. Then, before she wakes up, I move up the stairs, jump on her bed, curl up & go back to sleep. Then, when she wakes up, I'm the first feline she sees! I go into my purr mode immediately. Can't help it. And, if she could purr, she would be so happy to see me, she'd purr. Yes, there are other cats on the bed -- Spirit & sometimes the girls. Have a Happy Patrick's Day!!

CHECK THIS OUT
by Spirit on Mar 16 2019 Add Comment

Don't mean to turn my back on you but I wanted you to see my new collar. It has shamrocks on it -- our hooman says she saw it, thought about my green eyes & knew she had to get it for me, her fav feline. Well, I am. Inkee-Bear says I'm NOT her fav -- it's just that I'm the baby/youngest of our pack so she has to look out for me. But I can take care of myself if you know what I mean. Anyway, the Shamrock has been a symbol of Ireland since the 18th Century.

GRREEEN, GRREEEN EVERYWHERE!

They do what on Saint Patrick's Day? They drink green beer? They turn a river green?  Nah -- & if you believe that - well, you get my drift. Everyone wears green? Why? So they don't get pinched? Yikes. Well, I won't get pinched. I have green eyes -- all us Maus have green eyes. Oh, my new collar has green on it -- as a matter of fact, it has shamrocks on it. So, if what Inkee-Bear says is true --that shamrocks bring luck -- then I'm one lucky feline!

SHAMROCKS & CLOVER
by Inkee-Bear on Mar 16 2019 Add Comment

All Spirit thinks about is partying or, as he puts it -- purr-dee-ing.  On the more serious side, see the three leaf plant on our plates? That's a shamrock. The word 'shamrock' comes from the Irish word for 'young clover.' The Druids believed that a three-leaf clover would enable them to see evil spirits & escape in time.  A 4-leaf clover warded off bad luck & offered magical protection. The odds of finding a 4-leaf clover? It's 10,000 to 1. Let us know if you find one!

GOING GREEN?
by Spirit on Mar 16 2019 Add Comment

In our house, we're  'going green' on March 17!  Are you? It's Saint Patrick's Day!  An Irish Holiday!  We like Holidays. As you can see, our hooman has Saint Patrick Day plates & napkins. We're ready to party or, as we cats pronounce it, purr-dee!  

 

NATIONAL NAPPING DAY — MONDAY MARCH 11
by Inkee-Bear on Mar 10 2019 Add Comment

Today — Monday, March 11 is NATIONAL NAPPING DAY!! Did you know that? It’s always the day AFTER the return of Daylight Savings. It’s to compensate for that lost hour. Daylight Savings is a hooman thing but it suits us purrfectly cause napping is what we cats do the most — the best. When we’re awake, we race, chase, climb, jump, pounce, play, meowl  — then we eat &, you guessed it, we nap! Be sure & snag your nap today — after all, it’s legal cause it’s officially National Napping Day! 

 

LIFE IS ALWAYS A BALANCING ACT
by Gracee on Mar 7 2019 Add Comment

In case you didn't notice -- it's March 8 -- International Women's Day! What am I going to do about it?  I'm meowing with female felines, hoomans & critters to make our world gender-balanced. For hoomans, it's sorta' complicated. They want gender-balanced boardrooms, government, media, employment, wealth, sports, economy & community. We felines? We want a gender-balanced home -- cat trees, toys, food & litter boxes. So, turn your paws palms up @ your shoulders & get on with balancing our world!

WOMEN'S DAY -- OUR DAY!
by Sophee on Mar 7 2019 Add Comment

March 8 - Friday is International Women's Day 2019!  Women are celebrating across the world, across this planet -- maybe beyond. This year's campaign theme is: Balance for Better. What am I doing right now? I'm 'balancing' on an overhead beam -- watching my world from up here. As every agile feline knows -- The Better you Balance, the Better your World! I know, I know. It means so much more than that. Women want gender-balance in -- well, in everything. That's not hard to understand -- hard to acheive -- but not hard to understand if you know what I mean...

TAX DEDUCTIBLE? GOOD TRY!
by Spirit on Mar 2 2019 Add Comment

Our hooman saw this cartoon & thought it was purrfect for our blog. She had to pay for it -- or it could be a copywrong issue -- no, I mean a copyright issue. The cartoon's text at the bottom of the cartoon might not be visible due to pixels or whatever. So, I'll 'splain it to ya'. The Accountant is telling his patient, I mean client:  "Mr. Reynolds, you can't count your litter box as a deduction just because you do your business there."  Be sure & read our hooman's article: "CATS: COSTS & -- DEDUCTIONS?"

TAXES OR TAXIN'
by Spirit on Mar 2 2019 Add Comment

Just 'cause I'm sittin' on my hooman's tax receipts, you might think that I'm bothering or 'taxing' her. But I'm not. I'm tryin' to help her stay calm, cool & collected. She just said:  "OK, Spirit. No catio this year -- the possibility of getting the usual/any tax return is diminishing. Sorry, little guy."  That's depressing. She knows how I love to go outdoors. The only way I can go out now is in my very, too-secure stroller or on my harness/leash. The other cats don't want to put their paws outside. BUT I DO! I deserve a catio! Don't you agree?
