Following Felines

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This week Lola has been dogging my every move.

First she followed me over to the food bowl and stayed two steps behind me, and then she sat down and just stared at my back:

That was not exactly a relaxing meal…

I then tried to get away from her by jumping up onto the half wall, but she scrambled to the top of the stairs staring down at me and acknowledging my every move:

It’s driving me absolutely crazy! Why are you torturing me like this Lola?

Oh, you don’t like it? I thought you looovved it! If you hated it so much you should have just said something.

Oh, for heaven’s sakes, Lola!

But Sasha, you’re not the only one following someone else’s steps! You just started doing my thing, hiding under Zoe’s bed waiting untill she falls asleep and then get onto her bed:

Ok, fine, I guess we’re even then…

Yeah, let’s say we’re even.

FUN FACT:

Pigs are very clean, keeping their toilet area far away from where they lie down and eat. Even newborn piglets will leave the nest to go to the toilet within hours of birth.

And I have been practicing my disappearing act, where I vanish into the closet in Zoe’s bedroom!

That is my favorite act of yours, I must say, Lola! Mostly just because you disappear for a while… And because every time you do the trick I can make a cheesy joke about coming out of the closet…

You know Lola, you’re a pretty weird cat.

Yeah, that’s true. I think the humans love it too! Here is a video that Zoe took of me getting in the zone while lying next to her on the couch:

FUN FACT:

The most commonly observed two-headed animals are turtles and snakes.

A Pawfect Way to Drink

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

I have been enjoying the new cat bed that we got!

Yeah, and totally stealing it from me!

Well, sorry, but you have been so preoccupied with inventing new ways to drink.

Oh, right! Yes, I invented a totally new way of drinking that no cat or human has ever seen until today!

 

So, what is it really that you are doing here?

Isn’t it obvious?

No.

I am incorpurating my paw into the complicated manouver of this special drinking method that involves years of intense training until you have enough skill to pull it off.

 know what you’re thinking: “When can I start my lessons?” Well, you can call me on my private cell and book an appointment.

FUN FACT:

Cats require 2-4 ounces of fresh water in addition to their food. This of course depends on if the cat is eating wet or dry food.

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

We have been thinking of what it would be like if Zoe was as tiny as a fairy! We have used this same theme in other blog posts, but you guys can’t seem to get enough of it! Now Zoe is the one who has changed her size for the better!

Isn’t that crazy? We think it’s pretty cool.

What if that could one day be a reality…

Yeah, then we could carry Zoe around everywhere and she could ride on our backs as if we were huge horses!

Awesome!

FUN FACT:

The world’s oldest cat was a tortie and she reached the age of 27 years!!!

Mystery Snow Sculpture

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

Just yesterday we had a major snow shower! It’s been really fun because we have had abnormally little snow this winter so far. And apparently it’s been fun for the humans too! On Saturday morning Zoe and her mom went outside in a jiff. They started to build something out of snow in the back yard. We went to check it out — Umm, I went to check it out because you were too scared because you said that what they were making looked like a huge frog.

Naha!

Yeah!

Ok, FINE! YOU went to check it out then… jeez.

Well, we still have no idea what it is… Is it a frog? It it a dragon head? Is it a two humped camel? An alien? Is it Jabba the Hut, that thing form Star Wars? What is it? It has whiskers so it can’t really be a frog. Can you readers help us figure out what it is?

FUN FACT:

Wood frogs can survive more than 60% of their body freezing for as long as two weeks.

Loopy Lola

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This week Lola has been very kooky.

Naha!

Oh, really? Well, I have been taking some pictures of your “moments” of the week:

Ok, so first off we have some pictures of you on the halfwall. What was that all about?

Well, I don’t know. I think that is just something every cat has to interperet himself.

So, um, what is happening here?

Well, this one is quite interesting actually. I had an itch on the back of my head and I was scratching it on the pointy corner of the halfwall as I saw a weird splodge of something on the ceiling, explaining my odd face expression. And just for the record, the splodge turned out to be just a shadow… 

I see.

What’s going on here then?

Isn’t it obvious? I’m taking a selfie. Duh.

And what’s happening in this ending picture?

I am taking a bow, and contemplating my last move.

Hey, you know what Sasha?

What?

One of these days I am going to follow YOU around with a camera taking pictures of all the weird things you do!
