Our alarm kitties found a NEW way to wake us up...

Well, our four pawed alarm clocks found a new way to wake us up this morning, and they were at the other end of the house at the time! Our house has a security system, which we normally do not have activated when we are home, although meowmy sometimes does have the door/window sensors on when she is home alone. Even when the system is disarmed, we still get a triple beep on the control pad in our bedroom whenever any of the door or windows opens or when one of the glass break detectors, one each in the living and family rooms, activates. About six this morning the triple beep went off, waking both of the humans. I found both of the house felines in the living room, with doors and windows secure. Nothing was broken, but in the past the glass break detectors have triggered on something as small as a key dropped on the tile in the entry. Exactly HOW Saphira and Viola managed to wake us up will probably always remain a mystery, because so far neither of them is talking.

 

Saphira's latest trip for her pawdicure

Saphira's dad again, I think we have discussed how much Saphira does NOT like any part of getting her nails done one little bit. She hates being forced into her carrier (and I have the scars to prove it!), complains loudly during the drive to Petsmart (a whole three miles, max), and the last time we took her the tech who usually trims her claws was not available, and she did not behave well. She got loose in the grooming room, and after they corralled her again she was so agitated they decided not to even try to do the trim. Yesterday we decided to try again, and I decided to replace the thin little pillowcase in the bottom of her carrier with something more comfortable, so I replaced it with a much thicker bathroom rug. BAD MOVE! As soon as she saw me opening her carrier, she knew what was up (Ocis are VERY smart, and figure things out fast), and immediately hid and would have nothing to do with me. Our bedroom is pretty large and has a lot of nice hiding places, so I decided to just wait her out. Our time was limited, since her preferred vet tech was leaving early. She won the contest, so we decided to wait until today to try again. Later that evening Meowmy was getting ready to feed our spotted pride of felines and asked where Saphira was. I immediately checked out all her favorite hangouts, no luck. I headed into the bedroom to see if she had shown up there and where did I find her? INSIDE the hated carrier, guess she was checking out the new upholstery. Thinking to self, "why can't she do that when I WANT her to?"

Flash forward to this morning; meowmy and daddy are watching the morning news on TV when I notice Saphira again heading into the carrier. Not being a total dummy, I immediately closed and secured the door, and she is trapped, no trauma for either of us, the trip to Petsmart was much more relaxed for her, and she settled right down as soon as we got her home. She is curled up beside me as I write this, and she approves of this entry.

 

Real snow this time!

See my sisfur Viola's diary for her story of seeing her first snowfall last Tuesday and Wednesday. I had seen one little tiny snowfall last year, right after I move here to my furever home. It was not all that great, and happened before I was here on Catster, so I never wrote about it. This one was better! A little bit fell Tuesday night, and meowmy called us to come see it, but in the dark it was kind of hard to see. I guess that is why Viola tried to sneak out the front door when daddy opened it to take a look outside, she was lucky daddy stopped her. Wednesday morning it was snowing again when we got up, which really looked cool. Daddy said we had an inch or two on the ground, everything looked so nice and white. We both spent a lot of time in the front windows looking out, our favorite place to take in the world. We would love to get to go out and play in it, but daddy said it would really be cold on our tender paws, and besides, we are indoor kitties.

 

OMC a big rock crashed in Russia!

Daddy just told me that a big rock from space (called a meteor) crashed into a city in Russia yesterday, and a lot of people were hurt. Sending healing purrs their way, I hope all my Russian Blue kitty friends are OK!

 

The mystery of the expanding fuzzy mouse population...

Saphira and Viola's dad again, adding the same entry to both diaries since I am not sure who is responsible, quite possibly both are involved. I think we have mentioned (multiple times!) how much both of our spotted girls love to play fetch, and how we keep a stash of fuzzy mice on our bed where they are easily available to toss for them to retrieve. They usually toss them around a bit for themselves before they return them to us. The both also sometimes pick them up from the bed and take them to other parts of the house to play with. Over time we have bought dozens of mice, at least fifty or more, but due to the way some of them get stolen and hidden, we were down to about a dozen on our bed. For some reason, over the last week they have suddenly started reappearing! The count went from 12 to 14 to 16 and finally peaked at 21. The number is down a bit, but I really think it is kind of cute how they are returning their toys now. Meowmy says that having two Ocicats is like having a couple of two year olds. Not quite, when our kids were two they NEVER picked up their toys without being told, many times!

As we started saying soon after Saphira (our first Ocicat ever) joined us, she is probably the most interactive and amusing feline we have ever met, and two of them are even more so. They are both just absolute joys!

 

DDP!!! OMC, Thank you Catster!

Thank you Top Cats, I was so surprised this morning when daddy told me I was a DDP today. My sisfur Viola was getting a little bit too taken with herself and her three recent DDPs. She already was getting a bit hard to live with, telling me that my purr is broken and she hers is so much better. It's true, mine is very quiet and gentle, but that is just because I am a very feminine and dainty girl, and my momma cat taught me to always be polite and quiet. I also meow very quietly. Purring a VERY quiet thank you!

 

How to make a "daddy sandwich"

I think it has been mentioned here that since Viola and I have been getting along well, we both sleep with meomy and daddy. Usually I curl up with meowmy and Viola curls up with daddy. But sometimes we try something different, like last night. Instead of curling up with meowmy as usual, I decided to spend the night with daddy, daddys need kitty loving too! Daddy was sleeping on his side, and Viola curled up against his, uh, backside. That left me the front, so I curled up against his tummy. With a kitty on each side (and I mean touching daddy, not just close to him), we had him hemmed in so he could not really move without crushing one of us, which of course he would never do. Kind of a "daddy sandwich"! About 6:30 this morning daddy woke up and realized he was getting pretty stiff from being stuck in one position for so long, and he finally gently moved me out of the way so he could move around and stretch a bit. We kitties know all about stretching! To give daddy a little room, I moved over to meowmy and curled up beside her until everybody woke up later. When the breed descriptions say that Ocis like to be near their human servants, they REALLY mean it!

Oh, and big concats to my sisfur for her THIRD DDP in less than two weeks. Way to go, Viola!

 

A sad anniversary...

Daddy just reminded me that today is a very sad anniversary. Daddy is what he calls a "space geek", and used to work on space stuff. This is the tenth anniversary of a very sad day in space history... On February 1, 2003, the space shuttle Columbia was returning to earth at the end of a successful mission. As it reached the point where heat really built up, a hole in the left wing caused by a piece of insulation the broke free from the tank during launch allowed hot gas to enter the wing and cause damage that ultimately led to the loss of the spacecraft and crew. We are purring very sadly in memory of these brave explorers. Like most of us kitties, they were very curious. They died trying to help us learn more about the universe.

 

My sisfur Viola is a DDP, MOL!

My new sisfur is a DDP today, how cool is that? Of course she is going to be impossible to live with, but we are all really pawroud of her. I am going to have to keep reminding her that I am still the top cat in this house, having already been COTD, DOTD, AND DDP! But she is still a pretty nice Ocicat, though I tend to be a bit jealous of her spots, since they are darker than mine!

 

Having a sisfur is pretty nice after all!

Daddy has been telling you how I have been kind of hissy with my new sisfur Viola, so I thought I should let you know how we are doing. We are getting along much better now, we touch noses a lot, and we also chase each other all over the house really fast. Not sure if meowmy and daddy always like that, because sometimes while we are running we are not really looking where we are going, and we accidentally run into them at warp speed. They still think we are pretty cute when we do that. We also follow them around the house together, and both of us are pretty good about coming when called. This having a sisfur thing is really starting to be fun!
