Shhh…Calico cats rule!

Shhh….be very quiet.  Finally that little orange newcomer is asleep.  Ok, so after 2 1/2 years she isn’t a newcomer any more but she is the youngest and very annoying.  Why is she annoying?  Because all I’ve heard lately around the house is how this little cat has a blog.  Are you kidding me?  I’ve been with this human for….1..2..3…4…hold on I have to use my other foot…5…6…7…8…now I have to use a back foot, so hold on another second…9.  Yes, nine years I’ve been with this human.  Nine years and do I have a blog?  No.  But little miss “I’m so special because only about 15% of orange kitties are female” has her own blog.

Now I know that my human has spent a long time looking for a female orange kitten, it had something to do with her other female orange cat named Fritz that she loved very much who died many years ago (which was what prompted her to adopted me).  I know my human cherished Fritz and because my human is deeply sentimental and wanted another female orange kitty Tigger joined our family.  But did Tigger really deserve her own blog?

So, in defiance of my human (and to crush that little orange kitty under the pads of my paw) I, Princess Callie Boo-Boo, (legally know to the vet as Callie), have decided to hijack this blog for today in honor of all the calico cats in this world!  Why hijack the blog in honor of calico cats?  I will tell you why.  Did you know that calico cats are the second least likely coat color to get adopted?  The least likely coat color to be adopted is black, followed closely by calico.  So, I have taken it upon myself to use this blog entry to encourage all those who love us cute and adorable felines to consider adopting a calico cat.  We calicos are just as beautiful, loving, and entertaining as any other cat.  If you don’t believe me ask my human because there are three calico cats at my house (see pictures of the other two calico cats, Gracie and Zoey, below), so we must be quite awesome to have around.

Hugs and love to all my humble human friends,

A lesson for a multi-cat household: Sharing

Tags

, , , , , , ,

We felines are often thought of as independent and solitary creatures, and whether or not this is true, many of use find ourselves living in multi-cat households.  I know a few of you are the kings and queens of your households not having to give a care about having to share anything within your domain.  However, many of us live with one or more other cats or “creatures” and learning to share is a helpful lesson to learn.

I myself live not only in a multi-cat household with five other cats, but we also share the house with two dogs.   Let me tell you that sharing is very important as you must learn to share things like:

…the food bowls

…and the furniture!

As you can clearly see, sharing is a big part of the feline lifestyle when living in a multi-cat household.  So learn this lesson early and you will have not only a great life, but lots of friends to share your life.

The importance of looking cute

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today I want to talk to all my feline friends about the importance of looking cute.  Cuteness is one of the most important skills we felines can master.  It is because of our cuteness that we get adopted into homes, receive tasty treats, get awesome toys, enjoy lavish amounts of praise and petting–cuteness is our ticket to a glorious life of luxury and excellent massages.

Above is a prime example of cuteness.  This is one of my feline housemates, Abbie.  Abbie has perfected the art of cuteness and uses masterfully to manipulate our humans into giving her special treats, lots of toys and loving massages.  Look at how she has made herself look helpless and vulnerable.  Notice how she has made direct eye contact with a look in her eyes that just shouts to her human “Love me because I’m so sweet and cute.”  So, to all you young kittens out there–look, learn and practice the art of cuteness if you hope to have a wonderful life of kitty luxury and excess.

As you can see below, Abbie is not the only feline in my house that has mastered cuteness.  I also have honed this skill and practice it every moment I can, and I can do it with my eyes closed.

Cats in Action

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

I know it is hard for some of you to believe that a kitty can blog, but in the 21st century cats have stepped out of the our humans laps and into activities previously reserved for humans.  We have, as you humans like to say, “come a long way, baby!”  Today we felines not only have our own blogs, facebooks pages and twitters, but many of us have our own websites.  The 21st century technologies that have made it so easy for humans to “reach out and touch someone” technologically, have also allowed the feline population to try new things and take on new roles.  Of course, we must thank our humans for all their help, love and support–without which many of us would still be sitting on a lap somewhere mindlessly purring.

Cat Logic

Tags

Today I would like to clear up an issue that has been on my feline mind, that being the cat logic concerning the food bowl.  For some reason you humans believe that if there is any food in a food bowl the bowl is full.  However, those of us in the “feline know” understand that if you can see any part of the bottom of the food dish the dish needs to be filled.  As we felines depend upon our humans to provide us with sustenance a constantly full bowl is a must!  What would happen if the bowl were almost empty and our human decided to stay out late with friends and we had nothing but crumbs to sustain us for two hours?  Or, what if our human were to stay the night with friends and we ran out of food before our human came home? This is why it is so important that we meow and cry when we see the bottom of our food dish–or we might starve to death waiting for our human to come home.  This is why I need all you humans to understand the “cat logic” behind our food bowl obsession.  Thanks for reading my first post.

Loving purrs to you all
