Bath Time

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

I’ve been perfecting my drinking skills:

Wow! Looks like you’re really multitasking! Drinking and getting a good washing in between your toes!

Yeah, well speaking of washing your body, here’s what I saw you doing this morning:

I wish you played with me as much as you play with your own tail, Sasha!

Ends and Odds

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

We have been looking back at some of the little kooky things we’ve done this winter.

We investigated this really stupid cat toy:

I dug in the snow:

*Note: The door sill is about a foot above the ground, so there was a lot of snow out there..*

And this week I watched a really smart crow solving a complicated problem on tv:

I  think that crow is smarter than you, Sasha.

No comment.

FUN FACT:

Crows are emotional animals. They react to hunger and invasion by vigorously vocalizing their feelings. They display happiness, anger and sadness.

No, Lola! I’m talking about International Respect Your Cat Day!

What? I’ve never heard of that Sasha. I’ve only heard of Hairball Awareness Day, National Cat Day, National Feral Cat Day and Happy Mew Year.

Well, Lola, International Respect Your Cat Day is one that our humans missed.

Talk about not getting respect, Sasha!

Yeah, they thought that they would just let that holiday slide by and we wouldn’t notice!

Yeah right.

Yeah, that’s right Sasha! We have Hairball Awareness Day to look forward to on the last Friday of April. That’s a holiday that they won’t forget! 🙂

A survey showed that most pet owners would prefer to stay home and cuddle with their pet (63%) than go on a romantic date with their significant other (35%).

That won’t be our humans after the last Friday of April…

This week a circus came to town. And guess who is their latest high wire artist. I’ll give you a hint: It’s a cat that lives in this house and its not me. Take a look:

Haha! April fools! That didn’t really happen! Sasha is actually sitting right next to me trying to get cozy with Zoe on the couch:

Jeez, Sasha, it looks like Zoe isn’t really in the mood for some cozy time! But that doesn’t stop you!

Nah, if I wanna cuddle, it’s happenin’!

FUN FACT:

The smell of a skunk can be detected by a human a mile away.

Speaking of circuses, here is a video of the world’s best circus, which by the way doesn’t use any animals!

 

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.

Siamese (Twin) Cats

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This week we have been practicing our siamese-twin-cats act!

We think we are prety good! What do you guys think?

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.
