World Premiere

Hey efurrybody, we're movie stars! Yes, its true. Our Uncle Tod gave Meowmy a camera that makes videos! Wasn't that nice of him? He said that he had a new camera and didn't use his old one anymore so he just gave it to her! So now we get to star in our own movies. So far we just have one but we would like to share it with you. We'll wait right here while you go get some nip or popcorn or something. Dum...te dum dum....are you back? Ok great, lets start the show!

So what did you think? Pretty cool right? Meowmy said that she didn't like her voice and that she is still learning how to use the camera but all in all it wasn't half bad, especially since there was no script and it was filmed on our back porch on a windy day. We hope you enjoyed it, til next time!

-Stryder & Scotchy

Creepy Crawlies

So here I was last night minding my own business, my girl had been calling me and calling me to come in but I just wasn't ready to yet. She had come home from her weekend with Almost Dad and was wanting to snuggle with me but I was taking my time and making her wait. She should have figured that something was up cause I am normally waiting at her car door to escort her into the house when she gets home, I don't punish her for not being home, I'm happy she comes back.

Well she just couldn't wait (can you blame her?) so she scooped me up and took me to her room and let the loving commence. I got on her chest and got all scritched and scratched and pet and purred for a good 10 minutes and then it was off to the food bowl. When I jumped back up onto the bed I went to my corner and began my bath. About 5 licks into it I got up and turned my back on her, she just thought I was being discrete but I had a secret. And I left it for her on her blanket.

At first she didn't see it, she just thought it was a clump of fur but boy was she wrong. I had to focus all of my attention on it before she would investigate. My powers of mind control finally paid off cause she got off her duff and took a closer look. And guess what she found. A SLUG!! He he ha ha ha! Boy was she unhappy! Even after she removed the poor thing she still was looking all over for slimy things all night. I tried to spare her from it but she was just too impatient. I guess she got her Halloween trick a little early this year!

P.S. Voting has begun for the Halloween Floof Costume Contest, be sure to go cast your vote for your favorite post!

Nipped Out!

Oh man oh man! I scored some of the best catnip I've ever had this weekend. Its 100% pure organic and fresh as could be. Meowmy cracked it open and gave it a squeeze between her fingers to release the scent and I was off on a wild ride!

First I inhaled deeply filling my nostrils with the heavenly aroma of pure pleasure.
Then I took a little nibble out of my mouse's tail to cleanse my palate.
Next I licked individual pieces of it off the blanket and savored the taste.
By this time I was in my own little world. Man what a trip! Efurrything started to get all fuzzy and look weird. It was so cosmic! I think I even started to hallucinate.
I looked around for my Meowmy and here's what I saw instead!
Ha ha! She said she likes deviled eggs but she doesn't want to be one. That catnip sure was potent. But don't worry folks I use it responsibly, Meowmy helps me to ration it to just a pinch or two efurry once in a while. After I saw my Meowmy as an egg I was ready to sleep it off. I passed out for several hours and woke up refreshed and no hangover. It was a great night to be me.

Holmes wants to enter too!

Isn't he cute? His mom said that he wanted to be a skeleton so our Meowmy worked on this pawsome costume for him. Ha ha! We think he looks great. He's already been making the rounds to all the houses. He's got Party Mix and nip nanners! Special thanks to Moki Joe Designs for the use of their freebie background.

It's not too late to post your own entry into the contest. If you need some help with a costume there is a certain Human who advertises on the Cat Blogosphere about doing pictures for special occasions...hint hint. Maybe she can help you out?

Things That Go Bump In The Morning

I know I missed Tattletale Tuesday but this just happened and I HAD to share it.

This morning while my girl was in bed she rolled over to get more comfortable before going back to sleep. Well apparently this seemed like a good idea to stupid Stryder so he rolled over too. Only thing was that he was all snuggled up inside his favorite blanket and he didn't realize that he was on the edge of the bed.

First there was a loud thunk of claws trying to sink into mattress to hold him on. And then there was an even louder THUMP as he fell off anyway and bumped into the laundry hamper! He ran like a scardy cat straight to the door like someone was out to get him! Ha ha ha!

That's what you get for hogging my girl all to yourself at night. ::sticks out tongue::

She's crazy, that never happened. I don't know what she's talking about. Meowmy...did you tell Scotchy about my secret?

Guest Spot for Mancat Monday

This is CJ or Holmes as he is better known. He own's Almost Dad. He is 15 years old and still kickin! He recently was chased up a tree by a mean woofy and was stuck up there for hours cause it was too high to get down. He came down as low as he could but ended up falling and scaring efurryone. Although he was sore and a bit weary we are glad to report that he is perfectly fine!
When asked about his encounter with the mean old woofy he replied "no comment". But from the look on his face we could see that there was a lot he wanted to say about it! Back in his younger days he had a reputation for being a woofy smacker. He knocked a tooth right out of the mouth of one!
Holmes is a great mancat. He has been a best friend to Almost Dad since day one. They play games like soccer, guard dog and Can I Take Your Order or Talk into the Mike. This is where Almost Dad picks him up and holds him like a baby but then holds his back paw like a microphone at a fast food place. Because they are such good friends you can see that he doesn't want Almost Dad to leave for the weekend. He tried to pack himself in the bottom of the backpack twice before settling on top of the knapsack. It's hard to say goodbye to such a great mancat but he's always there to say hello when he comes back.
