Yet another ‘humans are crazy’ post

July 19, 2009 at 5:02 am (cat behavior, cat curiosity) (, , )

I was on one of my daily territorial ramblings when I saw this:

I sniffed that my humans were upto something, so I decided to take a closer look:

I think these papers are called ‘manuals’ and Papa has been reading them to create a ‘backyard monster’!

And then, Mama took out her backyard monster and Papa, too, the one he created and they set off for a good few hours…

Humans… whatever can be done about them?

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!

My fur makes papa’s eyes itch! Not normally, but now that he has had an op-e-ra-tion- the furs hurt his eyes- I think the operation is called a ‘cornea transplant’- and it’s made him a little ‘sensitive’.. there is a risk of getting in-fec-tion….

Papa also smells different for all the drops he puts in his eyes. I tried to jump on the bed and then I realized how different the bed smells…. I was so shocked that I stopped myself. Also sometimes when I look at papa, I think he does not really see me. I meow and walk over to him- only then he pets and talks to me.

Mama was telling me that papa will soon be ‘as good as new’. I want my old papa back, but I guess that’s a human way of saying that ‘my old papa will be back’.

I need to go to a cat boarding again :(. I’ll miss my humans, but I guess they could not help it. They miss me terribly when I am gone. I can tell by the way they cuddle me when I come back. But I know that the worst thing for our family at the moment would be if anything goes wrong with papa’s eyes.

After all it’s just 7 days….

Why do humans use that foul smelling thingie?!

March 7, 2009 at 10:15 pm (cat behavior, cat chat) (, , , , , , , , , , )

Humans!

Mama’s hair AGAIN smells of that foul thingie (insert by Mauzzie for the human readers: Shampoo). I HATE that smell. It smells ‘flo-we-ry’!

You tell me, why would a HUMAN smell of a FLOWER???!!?

Everytime I smell it in Mama’s hair, I groom her. A LOT. She better smell of ‘me’, than some wretched flower!

I don’t get humans! Don’t they like their own smell??!! I thought everyone likes their own smell… was I wrong?

i want to go home!

March 5, 2009 at 4:24 am (cat behavior) (, , , , )

I have not seen my humans in 3 days!

I think I am in a cat boarding that they dropped me to because papa needed a surgery and they would not have been home!

I want to go home! I think I’m going home tomorrow.

HUMANS! Take me home!!!

papa’s eyes and other noos’!

February 28, 2009 at 7:08 am (cat behavior) (, , , , , , , )

Mama and papa have been busy and I had no one to help me blog! They’ve been busy at home, and mama complains about work too- that she’s drowning in work. Not sure how one ‘drowns’ in work. It’s not like ‘work’ is ‘water’!

Humans!

I think papa is having a surgery in a few days. Cor-nea trans-plant. This is a com-plicated way of getting another human’s cor-nea and getting rid of the one he has now. I wonder if it will still smell the same. I guess I’ll need to find out in time.

Meanwhile, I think it’s good that papa will stay at home with me for some days. A kitty needs com-pany and papa makes a good com-panion! Besides, I’m a big boy now and I can take full responsibility of grooming the human!

We all know humans need grooming and cats do it best!

Besides the tops on human bellies make the best cat beds!

i’m a big boy now!!!!

February 23, 2009 at 11:36 am (cat behavior, cat curiosity) (, , , , , , , , )

Did I mention that I am now a four month old kitty? Four months and two days, to be exact. I now weigh close to two kilos, am much longer if I stretch myself fully. I guess you can call me a ‘big boy’ now. I am much pleased about that already! Yipppppiiiee!!!!

Anyhow- all else aside, since I am a big boy now- it’s only fair that I’d like to do big boy things- well… things like going outside near the birds (and kill them if I can!), like using the basin in the bathroom (I can handle water!), like protecting the house and my humans from other invisible cats (they are invisible and humans cannot see them!), like waking mama up from her sleep about 15 minutes before the alarm clock rings (I don’t want her to get all startled when that scary alarm rings all of a sudden!).

I have been meowing at mama to let me out for a while, I have been pawing the water when mama brushes her teeth in the morning, I have been arching my back and looking outside the house in the evenings to fight the invisible cats, and I make sure to meow hard to wake mama up at 5:30am- her alarm goes off at 5:45am- so I make sure I don’t miss it!

True, I get a little chirrupy meowy kittish like small baby kittens when I am sleepy and I seek out mama so that she can hug me and cuddle me- but apart from that I AM a big boy now and I am learning to be res-pon-sible!!!

just so you can judge- here’s a picshure mama took of me today while i was waiting for papa to come back home…..

the vet and more on orange flames…

February 17, 2009 at 12:24 am (cat treatments) (, , , , , , , , , )

mama took me to the v-e-t yesterday. this vet that i go to, his office is far from our home- but mama still takes me there because she says i have a ‘rappo’ with him. i guess she is right. the other ‘orange tabby fur (insert my maussie for the human readers: ginger haired)’ vet near our place does not talk to me like i am a person, he just talks to mama… but this ‘black fur’ (insert by maussie for the human readers: black haired) human who calls me ‘little sherkhan’ and actually talks to me like mama and papa does! i am surprised some humans think cats do not ‘get’ it when they speak to them! humans are so silly! meow!

anyway, it wasn’t nice when the black fur vet poked a sharp pointy thing inside my skin though. it pricked me! but he gave me a good massage after that so i got okay! mama told me it was called an ‘in-jec-tion’ and it will help me ‘not’ falling sick as days go by. oh well… i’m not sure why a prick on my skin will help me in any way- but what can you do when humans make you do things…. besides, i’m sure that was why i felt so crappy the rest of the day. mew. I napped through the evening!

you know about the orange flames (insert by maussie for the human readers: fire) that are eating up our forests (insert by maussie for the human readers: melbourne bushfire)? those orange flames made the whole city very smokey. mama and i both had a headache yesterday because we breathed the smoke in when we went to the vet, but mama thinks we should not complain much- lots of humans, cats, woofies, koalas and kangaroos has been having it a lot worse in the past 2 weeks.

mama cried yesterday when the flat black box (insert by maussie for the human readers: laptop) told her that lots of humans were eaten by the orange flames because they wanted to stay at their homes instead of selfishly fleeing leaving their cats and woofies behind to burn alone. i guess, humans are nice, even though they are a little silly at times.

window seat

February 9, 2009 at 2:33 am (cat behavior, cat curiosity) (, , , , , , , , , , )

there is something i really like doing: looking out the window. i can sit there for hours. usually i sit there around the time when papa and mama comes home… mama comes a little earlier than papa does… and i wait for them to come and cuddle me.

do you know what i see from the window?

birds… and yes, those shiny noisy big fast moving things too (insert by maussie for the human readers: cars). the birds make a lot of noise too, and i sometimes try to mimick them. mama laughed out loud one day when i tried to mimick those black and white birds (insert by maussie for the human readers: magpies). she thought it was funny… but you tell me, what’s so funny in that? humans think everything is funny!

also, the the bright thing (insert by maussie for the human readers: sunlight) falling on the top of my scratching thing landing is nice. i cannot catch it though, i tried. but well… i stopped trying it now. i just know it feels nice when it falls on me so i let it.

oh.. guess what? mama is home today. i have been guarding the door- so that she cannot go out, but i think she is really not going outside today! my plan worked!!! papa went out though. i have been guarding the door for him too, but he went out while i just looked. after all i am just a small kitten and humans are so big…. what can i do?

ahh… humans..!

February 7, 2009 at 10:22 pm (cat curiosity) (, , , , )

if only the humans were not so confusing *sigh*

my humans kept on moving from room to room last night. i kept asking them ‘wassup?’… and they kept talking to themselves about ‘hard con-tact len-ses’. i think whatever that thing is- papa had that stuck into his eyes for a long time and both of them tried to get that thing out.

i could help *mirrup*! but obviously humans think they know it all- and they did not even let me! they did not even think that i could help!

oh well… if only humans could understand cat…

cats purr when they are happy… mirrup!

February 5, 2009 at 11:26 am (cat behavior, cat language) (, , , , , , , )

i purred so much today that i thought may be my purrbox will run out!

i was so happy to see mama after the whole day. i purred purred and purred… i even drooled all over her… i marked her with my head so that all the cats in the world know that she’s my human! I licked her, nibbed her and then i slept on her… right on her shoulders! she laughed a lot, but she also gave me lots of cuddles!!! i think she likes me… miaw!

anyways… all is well now. mama and papa have been home for a while and i am not as desperate now. i am watching the birds from the window… and trying to plot a plan… i wonder how i can sneakily get into mama-papa’s room and stay there for the night…. hmm.. i need to plot a plan… meeow!

and mirrp… i made sure to check my purrbox… so i did a small purring test on mama again and IT WORKED! i did not run out! phew! after all, if i stop purring all of a sudden one day- i’ll be just half a cat and THAT cannot be good!

turn off the heat!

January 29, 2009 at 12:09 am (cat behavior) (, , , , , , , )

i thought my house was on fire last night- it was so hot. i could not sleep and i kept on knocking and meowing at my humans’ bedroom door. i know humans can make things right with their miracle hands- i was hoping they will make the weather right too. i don’t think mama-papa heard me meowing at all, because they just kept on sleeping! if only i had hands- i’d open the door and get into that room and wake the humans up!

humans are not like cats- they sleep only once a day and for a long time. i think it’s very weird. how can an animal sleep for so long and so deep??!! what if a bigger animal comes and hunts them while they are sleeping?! i KNEW it would fall on me to guard the house. these humans cannot do a thing! oh well… so now poor little sherkhan (that’s ME obviously) stays awake and guards the house when the lazy humans sleep… sigh.

i heard the humans talking about the weather yesterday- they said it was 43 degrees cel-ci-us and that the whole city had a fire-ban etc etc. i have no clue what it means other than that it’s probably very hot and i am a furry kitten so it gets even more difficult for me! they also said that today will be 45- so it probably means MORE bad news.

i don’t want it to get hot. i want the humans to make it right! MEEEOW!

hunting?

January 27, 2009 at 11:06 pm (cat behavior, cat curiosity) (, , , , , , , , , , )

i am home alone again *sigh*.

mama told me that they need to leave me alone 5 days a week, so that mama and papa can hunt food for me. the humans have been hunting whiska’s kitten food for me the last few weeks- i decided i like beef flavour the best and chicken flavour the least. i wonder if mama will teach me how to hunt whiska’s, so that i can hunt beef flavours more than the chicken ones? maybe i should try to make her take me hunting with her!!

i did not bother mama too much this morning when she was going hunting. i am hoping that she will hunt beef for me today. mrew! she seemed upset that i chew her white ear wire (i think the humans call it an ‘ipod earpiece’) in two halves (or was she upset because they were not equal halves? may be i will do it better the next time!). meow.. also it scares me when mama is upset.i know humans make silly pets, but i sort of like it when they cuddle me and upset humans don’t cuddle kittens!

meeeow! i think my humans are silly. chirrup.

i am a restless kitty!

January 26, 2009 at 11:20 pm (cat behavior) (, , , , , , , , , )

i think my humans are planning to leave me alone (again) in this house today, so i am making sure that they cannot do that! i am guarding the door and staying awake. i meowed at mama and groomed papa’s hair, but i refused to let them cuddle me to sleep. so i am running around in the house and guarding the door.

yes, i WON’T stay alone today!

i want to catch the clothes!

January 24, 2009 at 11:32 pm (cat behavior, cat curiosity) (, , , , , , , )

mama did the strangest thing today: she took the clothes that she kept inside a grass-cloured basket and put them inside the big white box in my litter room and then she did something that made the clothes turn round and round and round. i can see the clothes turning from the round window of the box and i tried to catch them- but i cannot! I CAN SEE BUT NOT TOUCH! something’s wrong there, it seems.

i tried a lot and i am taking a rest now but i will go back in a while to try some more. I WANT TO CATCH THE CLOTHES!!!

mrew!
