A Regular Kitten Tree Fort! --or-- "I am kitten, feel my claws!"

Okay, so there was total complete weirdness among the humans this weekend! They actually have finally completely lost their minds. I am in utter shock and amazement at this one! I mean, they dragged in a TREE! Needles flying everywhere, branches sticking out and whacking stuff... I could never in my wildest kitten super hyper speeds create this much chaos in the house! It was INSANE, I tell you! The Captain, Moose and I stood around telling them so, and pawing at the thing... sniffing wild eyed and in utter disbelief...

Then I took action! "Mom," I chirped, "Trees are not decorations, they are jungle gyms. Let me show you how we use them for training here at superhero kitty camp!" And like a little squirrel I shot up the trunk! Mom was grabbing at me but I just wrapped my paws around a branch and started biting and clawing and showing her how we utterly destroy, repel, and decimate invaders of the tree! I am kitten, feel my CLAWS!!!

So eventually she retreated her hand out of the tree and just let me hang out. It was fun! A regular kitten fort! I came out and went back in quite a few times. Mom and Dad said something about "tying it to the banister" and "waiting to decorate it." Whatever all that means.

And you know, afterward I did not hear even one of my usual accusations of "smelling like a kitten." Rather, I think they liked my wild woods kitten scent! I got to go to bed without even the usual threat of a kitten bath! But my paws were so sticky! I was just walking around sticking my paws on everything-- floor, carper, newspaper... I must improve my kitten fort. and drink its tasty water bucket! mmmmmmm... purrs!

Oh, my! Mommy and I were startled to hear this, but very grateful to our pal Chumley [#336620] for the information! THANKS, CHUMLEY!

Mom says if any Catster buds ever read about me getting into things that might hurt me, please let us know! I'm posting what Chumley said below...

and a paw wave out to Chrissy too this morning! [#293447] She really decorated my page!! I have such fantabulous friends here on Catster!!!

************************************

"I am concerned about you, playing with plastic bags. My Momma doesn't ever allow us to have plastic bags, because she is afraid we will hurt ourselves. It would be so easy for us to chew off a little bit of the bag, and suffocate if it caught in our throats. Please, please, please be careful, Sparkman! Or maybe your Mama could try to keep the plastic bags away from you kitties. If she does let you play with them, don't let her even look away for long enough for you to get a little piece in your mouth."

 

My Heroic Battle with Demon Eggplant Sent Out to Destroy All- of Kitten Kind! and drink my milk!

One of my new favorite games is to explore those plastic shopping bags. So when Mom and Dad go to a store and bring home a bunch of them, I AM IN HEAVEN!

So there I am, bouncing from bag to bag and chasing my tail. Having QUITE the kitten time when I bounce onto one that still has something inside it... and it kinda rocked from side to side when I pounced on it... I sneaked up and did that ninja paw kitten chop on it... deciding it at least had no teeth, I backed up and dove head first into the bag. And what was in there but ANOTHER BAG! It was clear and I was rolling for joy and biting at it when I saw IT. The most incredible, the most pounce able, the biggest kitten toy ever-- an EGG PLANT!

Now its the same size as me, so you know its not really just a harmless vegetable fruit thing... It's really a masked demon monster sent out to destroy all of kitten kind!!! and to drink my milk!!! So I did a double back flip and grabbed the thing by the front paws and started kicking it wildly with my back feet! Die monster eggplant!!!

Well after a little while, I realized Mom might try to save it and put it in the fridge, as she does a lot of my toys (green pepper, apples...). So I took action!!! Moose and Captain Morgan created a distraction-- Captain started pawing at a bowl of cherry tomatoes Mom had just taken out of the fridge, and Moose started running around under her legs tripping her.

I grabbed the clear bag in my mouth and started dragging the danged heavy thing across the floor to that bat cave toy den I'm eventually going to make. And I had gotten it out of the bigger bag... past the food dishes... almost to the hall when a giant hand came out of the sky and picked me up! It was Mom! How had she gotten past my brothers?! Dang it. She picked up the eggplant and put in with the green peppers and apples... foiled again! Don't blame me if it drinks the milk!

 

okay, learned a lesson...

okay, so I was jumping around the radiator biting Captain Morgan as he slept, and I slipped. I landed between the radiator and the bookcase... There was no way out of there!!! So I just sat and whimpered until Mom found me.

now shes moving the book case over so I won't get stuck there when she's not around...so embarassed. I guess I shouldnt have bragged about being able to attack my brothers up there... pout...

 

Super Kitten reaches New Heights-- RADIATOR!

Well it has FINALLY happened! I am finally just amazing and talented and everyone wishes they were as frickin' awesome as ME!!!! I am finally big enough, tall enough, strong enough, clever enough... okay okay need to breathe... I CAN REACH THE TOP OF THE RADIATOR!!!! Just like a real cat!!!!!

Oh, you just don't understand how very excited I am! I mean, the radiator is where Moose and Capt. Morgan go to hide from me when they’re sick of cuddling or getting their tails bit. (Moose does occasionally dangle his tail off to the side so I can jump for it) But oh my gosh! It's so very fantabulous!

All I have to do is jump on the couch (EASY!), walk to the back part of it, Jump onto the box shelf (short jump, but big scary gap I could fall down), climb along the windowsill (long hard hike, but worth it!) and then its jump onto the other bookshelf (a little scary because Mom's plant is in the way... but it has LEAVES or should I say it HAD leaves!), then its just a small hop onto the radiator!!!

Moose greeted me last time with a glare and a paw to the nose. He must be trying to play already?! I'm just so excited, I tried sleeping up there but it's just so exciting to BE up there I just cant keep my eyes shut. So exciting in kitten world!!

 

Sliding Around in the Water Spraying Tub Thingie!

Okay so, Dad was in the people watering thing getting sprayed, and I was like "oh, poor Dad! Mommy's making him bathe too!" But Mom was still in bed, so I thought I'd peak in and tell him so he didn't have to be in there, we'd lie for him! So I stick my head around the curtain, realize I have to actually climb along the side of the bath tub thing to see him even, and I chirp at him just as I take another step and slide RIGHT INTO THE SPRAYING WATER! It was terrifying, I got wet; I saw my whole life flash before my eyes!!! I struggled and by some feat of superpowers I managed to climb out and back onto the side ledge of the tub thingie.

So being the cute kitten that I am, I started to head towards the curtain, then turned and walked back realizing I hadn't told Dad anything, when what did I see behind me?! That silly wiggly tail of mine! It is just such a teasing thing! It was following me and mocking my every movement (it does that A LOT)... So I was getting ready to show it who was boss; I lifted my front paws to pounce and then bath tub thing I went! I mean, it was like ten seconds after the first fall and there I was sliding around in the water spraying tub thingie again! I was so miffed. I again used superpowers to climb out and then sat in the hallway, wet, and waited for one of my brothers to lick me off. Just a horrible morning.

 

I am Just an Overwhelmed Super Kitten.

It has been such a busy time here! I just can't keep up. I am swamped with work. I mean there are not enough hours in the day for all my tail biting, curtain swinging, garbage pail diving, toe biting, toy tormenting, litter showers, lamp climbing, kitten naps, broom battles, chirping, chipmunk watching, bug eating, television attacking, house plant killing, or even my blanket tunneling habits! Sometimes I just get so exhausted I fall asleep right on the ball in track toy, or lay limply while gnawing on Capt. Morgan's ear. What is a kitten to do?! This house needs ten kittens, but there’s only me. And I'm sure glad I'm such a super hero, because I'm the only one who could make all of this happen!

But every now and then, I am just an overwhelmed kitten. Mom and Dad don't seem to notice the lengths I go to not to blast off into space or self combust with all this energy. At least my big brother Moose seems to be trying; he twitches his tail while he sleeps and all but tries not react when I pounce around biting it... such a noble deed! Thanks Moosey!

 

Am I GROWING?!

Well geeez! I was trying toeat my lunch, and of course I DID decide to eat the big cat dry food and not the little cat dry food. But that's no reason at all for this! I was just munching along, minding my own business, when Moose walked past behind me. I got nervous and decided to eat facing towards him, just so i'd know where he was... I turned and backed up between the food dish and the water dish and kept munching. It is so good to eat the big cat food! So there I was munching along when I realized my butt was wet... then my back legs... then my tail... I looked behind me and jumped! Straight in the air! I had somehow managed to stick my whole rear end INTO the water dish! How did I get so long?! Am I growing or something?! I can't grow! This will spoil my cuteness! Oh, no! I'm going to get HUGE like Moose or Capt. Morgan!!!

I ran up to Mommy, who'd been watching me with a strange smile on her face... oh, she knew i was sitting in the water dish... anyways I sat my wet rump on her socked foot and cried. It was just so humiliating! I'm glad she washed the water bowl before anyone important found out... you know... like Capt. Morgan!

 

The Brilliance of Cow Milk!

October 24th 2006 6:36 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

Every morning I want milk, and seeing how Captain Morgan doesn't let me nurse him, which makes NO sense! He's my new jungle gym, scratching post, chew toy, napping heater, bather, and masseur... why can't he give milk too?! I keep trying! But he just doesn't let me near his nipples.

SO I have to drink SOMETHING besides just water in the morning; I mean, Mommy drinks cough-ie every morning! So I wait until she gets the cow milk (what IS a cow? Cause it seems to fit in this jug in the cold cold box and produce so much milk... does it swim in it in the jug?).... She is SO easy to cat-ipulate.

What was I saying? *chews on own tail in contemplation* Oh, yeah! MILK! So so sooooo, Mommy gets out the cow in the jug that swims in milk and pours it into her cough-ie. I stand in the middle of the kitchen and go into hysterics. REALLY. I jump around screaming and crying and doing my best dying kitten routine: legs up in the air, head rolled as far back as it'll go. I am amazing!

Moose and Captain Morgan come running to save me, and here’s the good part; they start climbing Mommy like she's a tree; clawing her legs and screaming too; saying things like "Make him stop! SAVE HIM!!!" And I flop on my side, pretending to be completely out of breath. Then she has to walk over to the little sushi set (big cat on each leg and me jumping along between her two feet) and get out a dipping bowl for my milk!

And while she’s pouring that first one, I notice she pours a second in case Captain wants milk too... Which is a GOOD thing because he rarely does and my second helping of milk is right there!!! When she puts the milk down I jump up to attention right away to let her know I'm not really hurt... afterward I always run over and show her my milk beard! I’m amazingly cute.

phewww that was a long story. Nap time! *Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr* *Falls flat across keyboard* ghudgjkxu

 

There's Like WAY More Than 10 Cats in the World!!!

You know, I thought there were only me, my litter sibbies, and Mom in the world; then I found out about Captain Morgan and Moose... But now that I'm on Catster; there’s like WAY more than 10 cats in the world!!! There’s like a hundred... a thousand... a katrillion! Wow... so many tails to bite.... Where do I start?
(Silly question! *rolls on side and bites own tail*)

Thanks for all the treats and rosettes and stars!!! I feel so impressive! Its like when I climb all the way to the top of that carpet teepee thing that Moose sits in. I dodge his big paws and claws and I barely make it past the dangling feather strings without toppling off to bite them and then there’s Captain Morgan looking so tempting back on the ground with his tail tucked around him while he sleeps and I just close my eyes really really tight and keep hopping my back feet... phewww! I'm exhausted.

Time to curl up with Captain Morgan... *pounces on Captain's tail* *Chomp*
ahhhh, nap time!
