Orange & White Tabby

They like to play a lot. They absolutely love to hang out around our dogs Mickey and Neville. I don't think they know that they belong to different species.

The vacuum cleaner, in case they happen to be inside for a visit. Freaks them out. Some do not like to be picked up, especially when they see a cat carrier somewhere. They hate that. Bad hoomins!

Favorite Toy:
Fake mousies and real chipmunkies. Other than that, everything they are not supposed to get their paws on, when they come inside.

Favorite Nap Spot:
On the bridge to our front door.

Favorite Food:
They are spoiled and get a mix of canned and dry food from me. They do also hunt their own kitteh haps.

Sneak inside or "run over" me, when I open the door.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
Hidey, one of our outdoor mousers, happened to have her 5 babies exactly two weeks after her sisfur Fraidy had her litter. Just like Hidey and Fraidy, as well as their Mommy Daisy, we "adopted" the kitties into our care. Four girls...Blondie, Itsy & Bitsy and Samba, and one boy, Mambo. Blondie is the only one with almost no pattern and medium long hair, while Itsy & Bitsy are striped and Mambo and his sisfur Samba have a bigger, blotchy pattern...just like their late uncle Bungee (Our Fallen Angel) showed off. They are the cutest little fluff balls and we love them very much. They come inside to play in the house and take a nap and have adapted nicely to their barky step-sibfurs Mickey Blue Eyes and now Neville but are living outside...most of the time. Just now do the three semi-indoor katzen, Nudel, Dudel & Strudel begin to accept the Mouseketeers as permanent furbies to be around. Those three have been very protective of their "empire", especially inside. Nogie, our oldest (15 1/2) and only indoor katz, is still totally overwhelmed with what he considers a rude take-over by invading enemies. We hope that he will eventually tolerate all the other cats and let them be without retreating to the second floor constantly.

Having a total of 11 outdoor mousers is a little much, so I agreed to eventually adopt them out. It will break my heart to separate any of the kittens from the rest and I'd rather not find a new home for them than the wrong one. It will drive me nuts...but hey that's okay, because according the hoomin I am married to, I am already crazy. Hidey, their mommy, has her spaying appointment come up, and I will take care of the four little girls too, as soon as they are old enough in a few months. I am in no hurry to find new pawrents for the kittens and will definitely keep them until they are several months old and more mature. :-)

We Are Soooo Old Now...One Year! - purred by Blondie

Yoy! We had our first Purrthday yesterday.

That is a biiig day in the life of a mouser. Yes! Especially, when one is an outdoor mouser like we are.

Well, part of our life we were allowed to spend some time inside the hoomin nest...mostly during the cold, cold winter. That was nice (and cuddly), because of the snow and ice that made our little paws hurt.

Now we have to live completely outside again and that is not good for my long and fluffy fur. It gets so badly tangled up in stuff and I have a hard time looking good. I am the only one among my sibs, who has the long hair...and it needs care, yes!

I hate bad fur days!

Yes, that is important on a special day like a purrthday. At least for a katzi girl. Samba and Bitsy agree, although they have short hair. the 5 of us turned 1 (ONE) year old yesterday. OMC!
Itsy has been on some sort of vacation for a quite a while and wasn't here to celebrate. However, Mama included her in the celebration "in absentia"...or whatever she called it.

We got special kibble, nicely mixed with extra yummy wet food. Some tuna meal. H-e-l-l-o yummy food, just hop into my mouth!
Tomorrow we might get canned chicken mixed with veggies. Oh, so healthy but also tasting very good.

Neville and Mickey, our barky brothers, wanted to get chipmunkies for us - but dogs don't do well catching those little whirlwinds. I can picture them trying to corner one, ha, ha. Anyway, it was a nice gesture. They showed us the little outfits they had bought in the hamster section at a pet store.
A-d-o-r-a-b-l-e, wish we could have put them on the chipmunkies!

Oh, I remember that my cousin Strudel said I should behave more like an adult katz now. Pfffffffffffff! I am way to cute for that. It's way to early for that. Way, way, way!

I let my sibs try out that adult thingy first. I will watch them for a while (a long while) and then decide, ha, ha!


We Got News From Our Non-Furry Hoomin Step-SibFur This- Weekend!

Meowing all over the place here!

Spring has been trying to box the bad, bad weather away, but the dark clouds keep coming back and rain down on us. NO FUN! What kind of life is that for outdoor mousers? Since our hoomin had all us kitty girls spayed, she does not let us into the house anymeowre. That stinks! We like to snuggle with her but even more so with our barky sibs. Those big hairy things make such great cushions! Oh well...I know that she misses us, too. I heard her say that.

This weekend, we had the hoomin kids (daughter & husband)with their 2-year old non-furry little one come visit. That little booger started squeaking every time he saw us. Meow. At least someone is still excited to see us.

When the window was open, we overheard the big news: There will be a new, hoomin kitten joining the family this year! YAY! That will be exciting for everyone, even us. I hope we get to play with it, too.

I will meet with all my purrmachines and make plans what to get it for a gift. When do hoomin babies start eating food like mousies? Do they catch their own, or will we have to do that for it? Do they like chipmunkies, too?

It takes so long for the hoomins to hatch. Do they not want to or what is the problem? We have to learn a lot. When the first blond, hoomin kitteh arrived, we were new and little ourselves and did not care about all that. Now we are adults and want to act it.

I have never seen a hoomin litter box. Do they use it secretly in a hidden place? On the carpet is a no-no, even for the itsy bitsy hoomin. I think they have secret rituals that they keep away from our eyes... Weird, weird, weird!

We will definitely come up with nice gifts, and if we get them early, then we don't have to worry about doing it all last minute. A well stored mousie tastes especially good. The fragrant scent and yummy flavor of an air preserved mousie is breath taking. Everyone will be happy.
