We had snow! New thing for me... It's cool!

Tuesday night meowmy called to daddy and told him to bring the kids (us!) to the living room right away. We all trotted in there and meowmy was looking out the window. It was kind of hard to see since it was dark, but it was all white outside. Daddy said it was something called snow. He opened the front door to take a peek outside, and I saw my chance to go try to go get a look for myself. I tried to slip out the open door (remember that I am an indoor kitty, and I am imprisoned here 24/7), but got caught as daddy was closing it and had to back out quickly. In daddy's defense, he did not see me trying to sneak out, I move really fast and am a stealth kitty. We all went to bed, and in the morning we all went back to the living room to see all these white flakes falling, daddy said it was snowing! It really looked nice, and with the sunlight we could see that everything around was white, even our cars (the ones they use to take us for our pawdicures) were covered with it too. I sat on my favorite kitty tree by the window, and daddy took some pictures of me looking out at the pretty scene, and he also went outside and took some of me looking out at him and the snow. Daddy will try to post some of them here, but lately Catster seems to have fleas that keep him from being able to post cute pictures of us. I REALLY wanted to go out and play in the snow, but it all melted and went away.


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!


Yet another DDP! How pawsome is that?

Thanks again Catster HQ top cats, I feel so honored, and so is the rest of my family, both two and four pawed. I am starting to feel a bit like that great writer, Ernest Hemmingway, who loved kitties with extra toes (daddy calls them "polydactyl", but that is a really big word for a little kitty to say.

And thank you to all my furiends here on Catster who have send me best wishes and pawmails about this. Purring thank you!


ANOTHER DDP??? This is just TOOOO much!

Viola demonstrates static electricity

This entry is from daddy, since this story involves some electrical stuff that most kitties don't understand.

The other night I was doing some work on the desktop computer in the den, where we also keep some boxes that we use to store things in. One of them had been used to ship a small radio, and still was full of those expanded plastic pellets, AKA "popcorn". I heard a noise coming from that box, and then saw Viola's head poke out. I reached into the box and gently pulled her out. Now anyone who has ever petted a cat when the humidity is low knows that this can generate a lot of static electricity. Well, pulling her out of that box did the same thing. As she came out of the box, the entire rear half of her body was covered in that popcorn, big time static cling! She looked SOOO funny, half chocolate spots and half white popcorn pieces!


OMC! ANOTHER DDP! This is just too much!

Another DDP! And only ten days since my first DDP! This is just so purrrfect! Purring a big THANK YOU! to all my furriends for their nice pawmails and gifts.

As long as I have your attention, a little update on goings on here in our cathouse (where we DO allow our pawrents to hang out with us)... My sisfur Saphira and I have been playing together a LOT recently! Chasing each other all over the house is so much fun! Meowmy and daddy really think it is cute, except maybe when we either run into one of them or tear across their bare feet (our sharp little claws can hurt, so they say). But we make up for it at bedtime, when each of us curls up with one of our humans and goes to sleep with them. I particularly like crawling under the covers and sleeping by daddy's feet, it is nice and warm down there.

Daddy always says that I finish off a Fancy Feast meal in less than two minutes, turns out he was wrong. He actually measured it this morning, took me eighty seconds, not counting licking the plate afterwards.


OMC, little ol' me a DDP!

I was so surprised when daddy (the big two pawed kitty who lets me crawl under the covers with him) told me that I am a Daily Diary Pick today! It has only been a few months since the pawrents adopted me into their family and added my Catster page. Once my sisfur Saphira learned that I am a pretty nice little kitty and fun to play with, we have been having a great time chasing each other all over the house, and we both love playing fetch with all the nice fuzzy mice they keep for us to chase.

Thank you to the Catster Top Kitties for this pawsome honor! We are all purring happily!


Viola has a new place to drown toy mice!

Viola's dad again. Think I have mentioned how Viola likes to drown captured fuzzy mice in her water dish. This morning I found that she has another location for mouse destruction: There was a white fuzzy mouse floating in the toilet! We have started always leaving the lid down!


BRRRRRRRR!!! It was REALLY cold here!

Night before last it was pretty cold here, daddy said it was 21 degrees outside, and 59 in the house. I don't know what a degree is, but I know it was really cold. Usually Saphira and I sleep in bed with meowmy and daddy, it's heated so it's nice and warm. Sometimes I sneak under the covers and nibble daddy's toes a bit, but always before I came right back out when I was through playing. I guess since it was so cold, daddy let me get under the covers again with him. He fell asleep, and he seemed a bit surprised when he woke up in the morning and found that I was still down there by his feet. It was so nice and warm under the covers! I think I might do this again on cold nights!


Viola has a new way of dispatching fuzzy mice

January 12th 2013 5:40 pm

Viola's dad again, she has a new way of (I think) dispatching the fuzzy mouse toys after she catches them and is through playing with them. In the last week I have "rescued" eight of them from her water dish, sometimes in pairs. Not sure whether she is trying to drown them or just thinks they need a bath. She does like to toss them in the air and then try to catch them, as does her sisfur Saphira. It is a bit of a stretch to believe that in a bedroom that measures over four hundred square feet, eight mice could land in a dish that measures less than half a square foot by pure chance. They had some feline help, the only question is why? Anyone have any ideas, Viola is not talking!

Update: Last night she brought me back a mouse that was totally soaked! I assume she dunked it in the water bowl and then returned it to me, dropping it into the bowl and then fishing it out again would be really hard for her.
