Cat Spat

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

Well, I have been trying to figure out what has been going on in Sasha’s crazy head these days.

Oh, really? So, am I crazy now?

Yes. Here is an example:

First you were cuddling me and licking me:

Yeah? So? What was so crazy about that?

And then two seconds later you just start attacking me!

Oh, come on! Don’t act like you didn’t fight back!

Well, I did exactly that after a little while. And then it wasn’t you chasing me, but me chasing you!

Workout Buddies

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

Well, I don’t know about you, Lola, but I sure have been workin’ up a sweat with Zoe!

It doesn’t look like you were doing much of the actual workout, Sasha.

Oh, really? As opposed to you, Lola? I haven’t seen you as much as twitch your tail all day!

You’re kind of a hypocrite, Lola…

Oh, don’t you worry, Sasha, I’m not critical of hippos. But what do hippos have to do with this?

Never mind…

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.

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.

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.

Fairry Sized

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!!!
