Canoe Cat!

August 11th 2010 10:21 am

I still have no idea what I am, breed wise... But hobby wise I am officially a Canoe Cat! So far I've been on two canoe day trips: Rice Lake (Minnesota) and the St. Louis River (Minnesota, Wisconsin border river!). Mom and Dad bought me a life preserver. I wear it for them now and then, but I have a hard time getting in my covered litter box with it on, so I squirm out of it a lot. Mom slaps it back on me though, whenever I start looking out at the vegetation or wild life with that lusty drooly playful expression.

So far I've only jumped out of the canoe once. We were near some cattails (CATtails?!) and I was dangling over the side batting at stuff. Then I started climbing the edge. At first Mom thought I was being clumsy and helped me back in before I touched the water. Then she realized that I was jumping over the side intensionally, and let me.

The water was muddy muddy muddy. And it smelled like a swampy mess. Mom caught my leash as I swam away from the canoe. She pulled me back in by the handle on my harness. I was all glowing eyed and happy! She seemed surprised by that. (They have a cat that eats socks and veggies, and they're surprised that the Canoe Cat likes swimming?! Goof balls!)

When we got home, I ran up to Sparkman to show off my muddy dreads. He took one sniff, laid his ears back, and ran away... I guess I was really stinky cause Mom dragged me in the bathroom and dunked me in the bath tub. Noooooo! I like swimming, but I HATE bathes. Afterward I went all wet and still kinda smelly and bathed on the bed, on the hoomins' blankets. Ha! Take THAT Mom!

But the St. Louis River went even better! I thought about hopping out when I saw the lilly pads, but decided to stay inside the boat this time. It's sure fun dangling over the edge, feeling the breeze in my fur, sniffing the air, and watching for wildlife. Those duck things are fun to watch! But watch out for those cranes & herons... They're HUGE! I went in my litter box when I saw them.

Yup. I'm now all about canoeing. And chewing on my friend Sparkman... Gotta go find him and bite him. Purrs!


Explorations In Sparkman's Veggie Land!

As I've said before, I'm totally thrilled and delighted to have a big brother Sparkman. I pretty much follow him around all day and try to get him to play or cuddle with me. Lately I've noticed that at treat time, he gets special treats. Capt. Morgan says not to bother with his taste in foods, but everything about Sparkman fascinates me.

First he was hanging out by Mom, chattering at her, while she cut up something called "Po-tah-toes." Sparkman was lapping them up one right after the other. I sat down beside him to beg for one too. Mom leaned over and offered me a piece... I can't say it even smelled like something I wanted in my mouth. I took a sniff, and then realized it smelled like Sparkman! I sniffed him, sniffed the potato, sniffed him again... I decided to lick his head instead of the potato. And he ate the potato.

But this afternoon Mom's making something called "pickles." So she keeps throwing Sparkman things called q-come-burrs and green beans. I licked a cucumber and made a yuck-yuck head twitch at Mom. But those green beans are another story... I don't want to eat them like Sparkman, I just want to play with them! I stole one from him and hid it under the carpet. Now him and me are chasing each other around the house. He keeps pausing at the carpet and reaching under for the bean, and I pounce him. How long will this go on? I hope for HOURS!!!


Getting Along Just Fine!

I'm fitting in just fine now with my new family! Sparkman AND Moose are my wrestling buddies. Captain Morgan lets me lick his head, but doesn't wrestle. (Isn't he a blood thirsty Pirate?!) As for the humans, I've decided that Moose is right, and that Dad is just wonderful. Mom? She's okay if Dad's at work. But Dad's so cool! He lets me ride around, draped over his shoulder and bite/licking his ear! And his beard is a great place to scratch my face and shed fur on. Purrrs!

And I finally got my own harness for going outside. It's as big as Sparkman's, but a nice grey-blue color. I look so handsome! I still don't understand though, why I'm supposed to wear it. I often wiggle out of it so I can reach that grass just out of reach, or hangout with the humans by he clothesline and such. They always look down, see me naked, and then pick me up and bring me inside. I don't get it.

Anyways, I just heard Moose make that chirpy noise that lets me know I can play chase games with him! Gotta run.


Wrestle Mania!... But Not Today.

Moose and I are having a regular morning wrestle match. We like rolling and bunny kick fighting in front of an audience, so we wait until Mom and Dad are drinking their coffee stuffs. Moose starts it out by walking to the carpet, flopping over like he's doing that weird Moose-Yoga stuff.

I walk in the room, give out a little "Mmmm!" chirp sound, and Moose answers with a huff or another chirp sound. I chirp back, and then run over to pounce on his exposed belly. We roll all over the carpet, play fighting and play growling at each other. It's great! And usually we're flipping each other in the air, we're bunny kicking till our ears wanna fall off, and we're only pausing now and then to catch our breaths.

And I gotta tell you, that Moose guy packs a mean wrestle! He really good and rolling me into a ball, holding me down so I can't move, and then just biting me all over. His other signature move is to get us both in a roll, then toss me up in the air to land awkwardly on my back... Yes that's right, I'm a cat, but I land on my back! He's just THAT good.

This morning, though... We're tired! But too stubborn to give up our game. So We started out the chirp and chirp back. I slowly walked over and just put my head in his paws for biting and bunny kicking. Moose kinda slowly rolled me over and bit my head, then licked it, and then bit it again. We paused as I yawned. Then we rolled a little more, but in slow motion. After a few more kicks, we unlocked our wrestle embrace and licked our paws. Then we both wandered off in opposite directions without eye contact. I went to the food, Moose to the glassed in porch. Yawn! Too early for wrestling today!

Whoa! My birthday?! You know what this means: party time!!!!
And Sparkman's grumbling cause Mom & Dad never officially threw a party for him. So tonight, our place, bring your own nip. It's tiny baby cats (as Mom keeps calling us) birthday party time!!! Gee I hope they make two cakes. I don't want potatoes on mine.



Purrseus purrings...

Whoa! I am officially lactose intolerant! I'd give details, but Ewwwww! Mom's not going to let me drink her cereal milk anymore. Which sucks, cause I LOVE the cereal milk! But yuck. That's gross.

That said, it's not slowing me down! I am still jumping on Moose and wrestling all over the carpet. That and I've started sitting on top of the fish tank (Like Captain Morgan) and watching those swimmy fish guys. They even have a filter that spits out water, and hypnotizes me. Okay, gotta go play again. Being a kitten sure involves a lot of bouncing and playing!


Happy Turkey Day!

I am visiting my Grandma & her cats! That Rainbow cat is sure purr-y. He even licked my head the first day I was here! Tutu the cat seems to hate me. She has a very loud hiss/spit/growl. Rainbow's little sister Niinii growls, but mostly just tries to ignore me. The humans talk a lot about missing Spot. Apparently they miss him every day here. I'm trying hard to purr and sit on laps and give loves like he did, but geez that's exhausting!

I'm having a great time hunting mice in garage, bugs in the basement, and eating TWO wet cat food meals a day! I kinda miss my brothers, who are having a vacation from my kitten-ness (According to Mom). I kitten called the hallway for Sparkman or Moose to come out and play... But these older kitties are more into napping than wrestling. Mom brings out the ball-in-track and wand toys for me.

I'm looking forward to this turkey thing that's gunna happen tomorrow! I hope you're all as lucky as me to be in the same room as a bird three times their size!!! Happy Turkey Day!!! Purrs!


My Visit to Grandma's and Grandpa's house!

Mom's finally home long enough to help me put up photos from my trip to Grandma's & Grandpa's house! Grandpa made me Cat Spurs. Mom said they'd help me right cat sized horses or dogs. I tried wearing them around a while, but didn't find anything to ride.

There was a HUGE squirrel that came to eat out of the window feeder every day. I kept running over there to watch it and drool. The birds out there were fun to watch too, but that squirrel was as big as me without my fluff, Mom said!

And lastly, Mom and Dad brought me something called a "Cattail" that they found outside. It was fluffy and fun to bat at, but don't lick one of those things. Yuck! That fluff just sticks to every prong on your tongue! So here's a great pic Mom took of me making my Yuck Face.


I Am a Helpful Kitten.

I was a Daily Diary Pic yesterday!?! That's so cool!!! I'm going to write more today, just because I'm famous. Was that my first ever?! I think so!!! Thank you friends for all the presents and well wishes! This is just so so so exciting!!!

Mom and Dad have been wrapping up stuffs in pretty tastey colored paper and getting boxes in the mail that area also fun to gnaw on. My rescuer Mommy said that I used to chew up and shred cardboard. I haven't done this since I moved to this house, but I sure love gnawing on corners of boxes! And oh boy is that paper ever fun to claw and chew on. I know Mom says "NO!" but I just can't help my kitten self.

Sparkman specializes in helping Mom wrap stuff by bunny kicking to death the cardboard tubes after the paper's gone. Captain Morgan sits there trying to steal the tape to chew on. And Moose usually pounces on the scissors while Mom tries to cut the paper. So if you ever get a present or mail from us: rest assured it was through great effort on our parts to restrain ourselves long enough for that.

My other fun this week has been hiding in closets and cabinets. Mom opens something, I climb in when she's not looking, and then she has to come find me later when I'm done napping and start crying! It's a great fun game. You should try it!


Boxing Day!

Mom says it's Boxing Day today. But she couldn't explain why which has me confused. So I asked Sparkman, and he just bopped me on the nose and started trying to well... Box! I asked Moose, and he said it's when you go hide in a box. Captain said it's when you steal small boxes from the humans and hide them. He's headed for that tree thing.

But me? I think I have it figured out: it's the day to SHRED boxes! Bwa ha ha!!! Cardboard fears my mighty-ness.
