Friday Funny

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here.

This is not me, but sometimes my bean brofur throws me into the snow outside the sunny room.
Next time he does I am going to show him this picture.  Or maybe not, MOL

The mom bean told us today she abandoning us is going away for a week.  That is like elebenty seventy nine kitty days or something like that.  She better watch out too 'cuz she might find something in her shoes when she get back.

Have a great week efurrybody.  We hope time goes by fast and we'll see you soon.

Thankful Thursday

Hi efurrybody, Sami here!

I has another story for you about a furry lucky kitty, and I is furry thankful he will be okay.  I thinks he is too!

The story in the news says "the car was brought into Winnipeg SuperLube to be serviced, but when a technician lifted the hood of the car, out popped a motor-oil-soaked cat."

Oh my goodness, can you imagine?  He must have been furry cold to get into the car and then to stay there while the car was moving is furry scary!

He got took to the Humane Society where he got a bath.  I think he looks more scared in this picture!

The story says once he gets a clean bill of health he will be available for adoption.  Oh, you suppose he has to go to the v e t.  If he does I hopes he rides inside the car this time.

Purrs to Garfield we hopes he finds his furever home furry soon!
Hope you all had a great Thankful Thursday!

Tuxie Tuesday

Hi efurrybody, Saku here.

I'm kind of busy at the moment so I's gonna let mom tell you the rest of this story.

MOM, get that flashy box out my face!

A few days ago I read a blog post, I think on one of the foster blogs about feline health issues that can result from old and dirty litter boxes.  I was embarrassed when I realized I hadn't replaced my litter boxes for a very long time.

I generally clean the boxes of debris and clumps every second day and wipe down the rim and outside "as needed".  But I only really empty and scrub out the boxes when I can take them outdoors and hose them down. (Sometime in the summer)

After reading the post, I was inspired to do some major changes in the cats' litter box room. It is an area under the basement stairs and next to the furnace room. I also read the furnace room isn't the preferred spot but my cats are accustomed to it since their boxes have been in the area in both this and the old house.

This is the before picture, with the four (very dirty) old boxes, and the two new pristine ones...that won't last.

I had hoped to find a small pool like the one the Katnip Lounge uses but it's too early in the season  to be in stock.  Instead I found two smaller boxes at Wallyworld.

The more expensive of the two has an additional piece to allow for screening of the litter versus scooping.  I'm not sure how well it will work, but if I don't like it, I can always remove the screen and just use it as I would any other box.

I removed ALL of the litter from the four existed boxes, then tossed out one small and one large box based on their condition as they both had broken lids.

 I scrubbed the older boxes first with a brush, then used a rag to clean up every corner, rinsed them carefully, and after assembly of the new boxes, I filled the four with fresh litter.  The floor was swept and washed (that's done weekly) and the area was ready for future deposits.

I was able to shift the newest boxes away from the back of the book shelf.  As you can tell, it's been the target of a few misplaced mancat aims.


Seriously mom?  Misplaced aims...those wasn't nothing misplaced about my aim.  Thanks for the new and cleaned up digs...but don't forget tuxies rule, you beans drool!!!

Have a great Tuxie Tuesday efurrybody!

Mancat Monday

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here.

Although it was a holiday* for most beans today , the mom bean had to go chase green papers, so she abandoned us to the company of our bean brofur and sisfur.

We (beans and kitties) all spent the day doing pretty much the same thing.


Of course a mancat does it best.

Hope you all had a marvelous mancat Monday!

*Today is Family Day in Saskatchewan, a provincial holiday however I work for the federal government so don't get the day off. :(

Snowy Sunday

Hi efurrybody, Sami here!

Yesterday the sun was shining so my brofurs asked mom (nicely) to go out to the sunny room.

She shut the door 'cuz it was only 1C out there (just above freezing).

Sasha figured out pretty quickly it was too cold for a kitty out there and asked to be let in.

Saku isn't as smart as Sasha.

The mom bean had to get the treat bag out to convince him to come indoors.

Maybe he's not so dumb after all, MOL

Today, our cat television isn't furry clear, and the mom bean isn't furry happy.

She says there doesn't seem to be much snow falling but it sure is blowing around.  And that means more shovelling.

I don'ts care because I'm a cat.  And a smart kitty too, 'cuz I has found place to curl up and take a nap.

At least I will when the mom bean gets that flashy box out of my face!

Have an easy Sunday efurrybody!

Catchup Caturday

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here.

Sorry we has been away most of the week, the mom bean has been doing silly stuff.  Like getting up at early o'clock to watch the O'Lim-picks on the shiny box and those silly beans yelling hurry hard!  Though it means I get more snuggle time so most of the time I don't mind.

The problem is she isn't capable of tippy tapping at the same time as she watches, and 'cuz she was tired after chasing green papers she didn't do much when she came home either.

If I wasn't so tired, I might just fire her! MOL.

We has had another cold week.  Sometimes mom opens up the door to the sunny room but it's too cold.  I just stand there shaking my paw...I will not go out there!
Mr. Bunny was hanging out in the snow outside the bedroom window.  I am happy I am not a bunny.  I don't like the cold!

So while mom spends her time in front of the shiny box, I'm going to stay warm and cozy next to her and have a nap.  Have a great Caturday efurrybody!

Friday funny

Hi efurrybody, Saku here!

We has a furry funny story for you today about our furriend, All-T.  It starts out kinda sad though, ‘cuz All-T’s bean mom and dad are going away for furfty eleben days and All-T has to go to a boarding place while they is away. They do this efurry year ...silly beans!

The other day, All-T’s bean dad was at the boarding place to pick up paperwork for her stay.  The bean helping him wored a sticker saying “I’m new” and when another bean working there said, “oh, All-T is coming back, wonder who she’ll hurt this time”, the sticker bean says, “why, does she bite?” 

The other bean said “Only when you look her in the eye.”  

MOL, now that’s cat funny!

Happy Valentine’s day efurrybody!

Silent Sunday

Hi everyone, it's mom here today.

Who do you suppose did this?

Take a look at these faces and see if you tell who the guilty party is.

They're not talking, but I'm pretty sure who did it.

If you look at the first photo, you'll also see there is a cushion under the chair.  This is because someone, who shall remain nameless, likes to crawl under the chair and climb into the seat.

Perhaps he thinks I need new furniture? (I guess you can tell it wasn't Sami!)

Cat-in-a-box Caturday

Hi efurrybody, Saku here!

I's having a furry good Caturday.  My bean sisfur wented to a Cost Co store and gotted me a new box.

Sami, get out of the way, efurrybody can't see my box.  Silly sifur!

 It's a great box to rub my face against, and better bean putted a nip toy in it for me to play with.

Today I feels like I'm the world's luckiest kitty!

Hope you all has a wonderful Caturday!!!

Thankful Thursday

Hi efurrybody, Saku here!

Today I is bringing you the story of a furry lucky and thankful kitty!  Mom founded it in the news stories on CBC tv.....hmmm I wonder if that is catbycat television?  I'm going to have to ask her.

Anyways, meet Whiskers!
Saskatchewan Mounties were the cat's meow Thursday following a car crash north of Regina.
The early morning rollover on Highway 6 left a man and a woman with minor injuries.
The crash apparently spooked their short-haired cat, Whiskers, which fled the scene in -30 C weather.
An RCMP officer found the pet nearby, walking along the highway.
The officer scooped Whiskers up, placed the cat in his warm patrol car and returned it to its owners.
An RCMP spokesman said it appears the cat was uninjured and is "feline fine."

Hope you all had a thankful Thursday where you was warm and safe!

Mancat Monday

Hi efurrybody, Sasha here!

Hang on a sec, will you?  Nom, nom, crunch, crunch, slurp.

Sorry, but this stinky goodness is sooooo yummy!

Where are Sami and Saku you ask?  Well, I'm a little older and a little slower so I take my time getting to dinner and enjoy it a little longer than those two.

Then Mom has to stay and watch us eat 'cuz the piggy brofur Saku will push me out of the way to eat my share.  What a rude kitty!

Now, if you'll excuse me I want to finish before the kid shows up.

Hope you had a wonderful Mancat Monday efurrybody!

Easy on Sunday

Hi efurrybody, Sami here!

The mom bean was up early this morning and is watching other beans on the noisy box.  Those beans are doing lots of yelling, things like hurry, hurry or harder or whoa!

When they aren't yelling, mom is running around the house doing stuff,  She brought out the sucking masheen, folded some stuff out of the warming masheen for me to sleep on, and wetted the kitchen floor.

Seriously, I don'ts understand why beans can't just be like kitties, and take it easy!

I plan to spend the rest of the day, just hanging around MOL.

Have an easy Sunday efurrybody!

Another Catchup Caturday

Hi efurrybody, Sami and Sasha here!

We're finally back for real.  The mom bean gotted home yesterday but she was too lazy busy to help us tippy tap so we has lots of visiting to do to catch up with our furriends.

I's found a furry comfortable chair to curl up on while I waits for mom to start reading to us.

Sasha is snuggled in next to mom on the chair.  It's nice and warm and he can make sure mom doesn't get distracted, MOL!

Have a great Caturday efurrybody, see you soon!
