Furry Monday!

March 8, 2010 at 4:32 pm (cat behavior, cat photos) (, , , , )

As my friend Huffle Mawson pointed it out- Mama is not doing very well with her 2010 resolution. I (with some help from Huffle’s mummy) managed to ‘guilt’ her into blogging for me by pointing that out- so there we go!

Today, I have my Mama home with me; even though Papa is out all day hunting. It is a pub-lic holiday here in Victoria- it probably means that Mama is a pub-lic and Papa is not, but I still have no clue what this word otherwise means. Anyways.

It also means I’ll have to keep a close watch of when Papa gets back home.

I have helped Mama today in cleaning the house, even though I have no idea what is wrong with having cat furs all other the place… I mean- what CAN be the problem with having zillions and trillions of cat furs all over the place!

Humans and their ideas of cleanliness!

Play time!

September 27, 2009 at 9:05 pm (cat behavior, cat photos) (, , , )

The headache that Mama had through last week- continued through the weekend, too. But she was still better because she was home; and I was home… and Papa was home.

There is no place like home, after all. We cats know that. Sometimes humans do, too.

Anyway, see the photo- you’ll see I had fun… with Sam the puppy, Greenie the croc, Toydle the turtle. Also, I think bean bag sofas are one of the best things that humans ever invented!

Okay, I’m off to meow at my humans. Hope you had a good weekend!!!

I don’t understand Papa’s camera much. It’s much bigger than the small compact a-little-bigger-than-a-matchbox camera that Mama has- it has a trunk like an elephant’s (oh… did I tell you that I am all eyes and ears whenever any animal channel is on the telly? I know elephants!); and many a times- it seems like it’s staring at me… through that trunk!

Meow! We cats don’t like that. You don’t look straight into our eyes! We think you are threatening us by doing that! But I trust Papa, even when he has the camera that is staring straight at me. I let it go. I’m not that difficult usually.

I have now learnt to differentiate between different members of my jungle, in their intention and the usual norms- I know Mama and Papa means well… even when they don’t let me climb the kitchen sink, even when they leave me behind for their daily hunting, even when they don’t always open the doors that I want them to, even when I sometimes pretend their hands are what I am hunting… I never bite them- I just wrap all my legs around them and ‘pretend’ that I’m fighting them.

You see- you need to understand- no matter how many years I am tamed as a housecat, I do have my predator instincts. You’ll believe me when you see me hunting an insect- I am alert, I cackle, I hunt- I do what I have to do to get it under my paws. See this photo with this post? That’s me when I caught a glimpse of a small fruit fly- believe me now?

I am a little version of other big species that live in big open-sky jungles and are known as vicious hunters. I am vicious too. And just like them- I do care for my family. Yes, my family with two humans in the jungle where I rule.

We all have our vicious sides, even the humans- even though they tend to turn a blind eye to that sometimes.

Photogenic Sherkhan

August 9, 2009 at 11:30 am (cat behavior, cat photos) (, , , )

This ‘weekend’- Papa was at it again. You know how he sometimes goes goes crazy with the camera? Well.. I mean that.

He thought I’d be a good ‘subject’ (I hope that’s a good thing), and he took many snaps of me sleeping, hunting etc etc etc. Most of it he is keeping to his white box (insert by Mauzzie: Laptop), not sure what big plans he has with them for now- but I will post them in due time; in other words when Mama can steal them from him, or when he lets us have them :).

Mama thought this was a fine photo of me. What do you think?

Yes, I know… I know… I AM a cute kitten!

I am sometimes on my throne:

But no matter where I am- my heater friend has to be somewhere near:

A big ‘Thank you’ to my heater friend for keeping me warm in this cold cold Winter. Meow!

My Little Human Friend

July 11, 2009 at 12:00 am (cat behavior, cat photos) (, , , , , , )

My little human friend (Papa’s 4 year old niece) left for the far far away home about two days back with her parents.

Here’s a few photos from two weeks back with me playing with the little one with…. guess what… ribbons!!! Very exciting!

Little Human Friend

Little Human Friend

While I am playing here with my little human friend- Papa is, at the background, as usual looking for his life’s answers inside his ‘white flat box’. Humans have no clue how to have fun, the little ones know of it somewhat though 😛

I hear my little human friend also has a kitty in the place where she went away. I wonder if that kitty blogs too?

Kitten Food: Sherkhan on a Mission

June 23, 2009 at 1:58 am (cat behavior, cat curiosity, cat photos) (, , , , , )

I don’t know about you other kitties but me, I like my food wet and full of stinky goodness. So my Mama, being the good human that she is, gives me my food just the way I like it: two pouches of wet food (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) and some dry food to snack on through the day.

Till like two weeks back, I used to like Whiska’s kitten food as my preferred wet food – then… well… I stopped liking it.

Mama had a few boxes of Whiska’s in stock but she got concerned and gave me ‘Science Diet Chunky Chicken’ instead, so that I don’t go without dinner.

Papa thinks that was a mistake, he says- Mama is bit too indulgent and easily manipulated. And, I obviously know the art of manipulation- I am a kitten after all, it does not take much for me. Heehaahaa… so I mean, yea- may be Papa IS right- but ‘SHUSH, Papa’!

As I was saying- I don’t like Whiska’s anymore now, and Mama is having a hard time finding the exact Science Diet- as the local vet does not keep it in stock, neither does the local pet shop. She is placing the order with the vet today, but it may take some days to arrive. She is a little worried about what to do with my food.

Me? I’m still refusing to eat Whiska’s and asking Mama for my favourite stinky goodness every time she even ‘attempts’ to give me Whiska’s! I’m sure my trick will work….

Why? Well when you look like this do you even need to ask why?

No, you don’t! LOL!!

There is only one thing I’d need to say:

“Get your supply chains fixed, Science Diet! Jeez! I’m on a mission here! Help me help you, will you?”

Heehee… now- you kitties- do you like your food wet or dry?

me on day 1

May 23, 2009 at 12:29 am (cat behavior, cat photos) (, , , )

Today is the 5 month anniversary of my got’cha day.

On the eve of this event, I’m presenting yet another video.

This is me from the evening I was brought to my home. I was set free in the living room and given a toy mouse that I absolutely loved:

I was still a little scared of my humans, but I guess I was just weary.

I WAS very small, wasn’t I?

kitten duty performed….

May 17, 2009 at 11:40 pm (cat behavior, cat photos) (, , )

As you kitties know, I take my kitten duty very very seriously.

All of us experienced with humans, we know humans do not always act like we’d want them to. Right?

Like, I don’t want my humans furs to smell like ‘shampoo’, but I guess it’s just a human thing. They like shampoo and I have my suspicions that they even like the smell of it. I do not like this fact, but I guess that’s part of the package and you cannot train humans of certain things- like grooming themselves like we cats do. Sigh.

Anyway- so when my humans use ‘shampoo’- I do this:

I think it amuses my humans because they dont really stop me. Whatever works, you know?

Laundry?!

May 16, 2009 at 11:33 pm (cat behavior, cat curiosity, cat photos) (, , , )

I get very little sleep on weekends… I am amazed at some things humans do when they are home and I choose to watch them over sleeping!

One of those things is what they call ‘doing laundry’. You see- it’s when they wash their furs in a big white noisy machine.

Mama did her ‘laundry’ yesterday and I was adament that I WILL catch the ‘furs’ this time from that round window of that big white machine. So I did this:

Sigh. I still could not catch the clothes 😦

Wish me luck for next time, eh?

[Note from Maussie:
Apologies for the video quality. I know it’s bad :). I just did not want to distract Sherkhan by getting up to turn the lights on]

rugs are good!!!

May 16, 2009 at 12:20 am (cat behavior, cat photos) (, , , , )

My humans are home; and even though I just see one of them now, I know the other is behind that door on his human bed taking his nap. That tells me that today is a ‘weekend’.

Mama told me that I am almost 7 months old now. Almost, as in- I still have 7 days to go. She kept on talking to Papa about how time flies and how it seems like yesterday when the humans got me home. I does not seem like ‘yesterday’ to me though. I have been in my home forever now!

Anyway, Mama looked into her big black box (insert by maussie for the human readers: laptop); and found some of my videos from when I was a kitten. Apparently, I have not changed much except for my size. I am bigger now…

YES! I am a BIG BOY now!

So here’s a video of me playing with the floor rug and the cat tunnel in the living room from about 5 months back:

I was so silly *sneers* (and small)!

Greenie

May 10, 2009 at 5:22 am (cat behavior, cat photos) (, , , , )

Have I told you kitties about Greenie? Guess I haven’t.

Well.. Greenie is my friend. Mama says Greenie is my ‘Hobbes’… and when she says that, she calls me ‘Calvin’- which certainly is NOT my name and I have no idea where this is coming from;- but well… for now, I’ll just call him ‘my friend’.

Greenie is a green crocodile from the IKEA-place. He has been with my humans from before I was born. He does not do much usually- just stays there on the living room floor… I play with him a lot. But I’ve heard that crocodiles can be vicious, so when I play with him- I’m very very careful that I am not too agressive with him. Obviously… you know? Who wants to be bitten by a crocodile. No one!

Here is a video of me, playing with Greenie:

The bean who’s holding Greenie so that he cannot come too close to me, that’s my Papa. See.. I can always count on my Papa to protect me from vicious teeth!

Papa and I

April 18, 2009 at 12:43 am (cat behavior, cat chat, cat photos) (, , , , , , , , , )

My Papa is well enough to go hunting now and he has been since Easter.

I think humans say they are ‘working’ when they are ‘hunting’. I’m not sure why. I mean- obviously when you are collecting those shiney things (insert my Maussie for the human readers: Coins/ Money) to hunt food with- you are hunting! Why’d you call it ‘working’ is beyond me. Duh!

Anyhow- back to Papa. As I said, he goes hunting now that his new cor-nea is better… for those of you kittens who didn’t know it- my Papa had his own cor-nea trans-plan-ted with another human’s cor-nea about a month and a half back… Mama says a month is 120 catnaps long. Seems not so long ago to me! I’d think Papa should have rested more, but it’s some human feeling of wanting to ‘start back’.

I miss Papa a lot now when he goes to work. I used to love the company at home. And now- Sherkhan is again all alone in the house ALL day- till the humans come back from their hunting when the blue sky turns light grey. I have been a little frustrated with the change of routine…. and this is what I have been missing the most:

Papa does try to make it up to me when he is back from his hunting and I am trying to understand that big cats (in my case- big humans) need to hunt to help the small cats survive- but I still miss him.

I’ll be okay and that’s my update. So- how have you other kitties been?

Hey, I’m back!!!!

April 11, 2009 at 1:15 pm (cat photos) (, )

Hmm… it HAS been a while, hasn’t it? I hope all you kitties have been well. Well.. me… I have been well, I think it’s mama who’s been a little crazy with all the work.

I have grown a little bit more now. See for yourself:

the five month old furball

Mama says I look a little older in this photo than my 5 months and it’s when I sleep or cuddle mama, do I look like the kitty-cat I really am. I’m not sure I agree that I am a kitty-cat, but you know MUMS!

Okay, here’s me and Mama- cuddling each other. Papa took this one when I got all excited to see Mama when she got back from work! It’s a mobile pic; that’s why it’s hazy.

Mama thinks this is a cute one. I agree!

kitten memories

March 20, 2009 at 10:47 am (cat photos) (, , , , , , )

Today- I’ve decided that I will share some of my favourite pics with you kitties. These pics are a few months old, from around December 2008. I was 2 months old then.

Now tell me, don’t you think I am cute as a kitten? Oh wait… I AM a kitten! I guess I am just CUTE AS…!

Heehaahaa!
