Hunting…

20170426_112835Dear Furiends,

M often mentions his hunting prowess – of course, that was a few years ago. And he also has told me that I’m not a typical cat (apparently, he is and that means cats are grumpy as well as boastful about hunting. Anyway, I really do want to be a proper cat, so I’ve been working on my hunting skills … and have been practicing on our geckos. Did you know that when you catch them, their tails fall off? Shocked me something fierce the first time. The good news is that the tails grow back. I know this for a fact because because just about all the geckos in my yard are now missing their tails… And they are a lot speedier without those tails, but I occasionally catch and release one. That means I’m a good hunter, right?

However, I doubt that I will EVER be a hunter of this caliber!!!image(5)

I assure you that M isn’t even in that category!baefef0a35775a2c1c3691bb0ee897f8--kitty-cats-kitten

Thankfully, I’m not in this category, either:

P1190573Dear Furiends,

A pumpkin rotted on the porch,… oh, what a mess! As you know, they last very well if they aren’t cut or gnawed… Someone suggested that Halo might have nibbled… He swears that he is innocent, and, as you can see, he is still guarding the indoor ones. 20171023_115931So, why would he mess with an outdoor one?

Saphera suggested that it might have been that dreadful trash bandit… anyone who would dig not one, but FOUR holes under our fence – holes that are big enough for Saphera to get through – then strew trash all over the yard is capable of anything, right?

While that does seem true, M, who refuses to blame anyone without evidence, suggested that the exterior cameras should be consulted, and we discovered this incriminating scene: IMG_20171108_190032

Obviously, we have TWO rogues loose in our yard!

Oh, the horror of it all!

Since he was our hero (and half asleep), M agreed to pose for a Sunday Selfie, as long as I would also include the dove, who has moved into our star fruit tree.Mute1

Lastly, here is the dove…. M is thrilled that the birds are returning to our yard and so am I. doveDo you think I could ask them to help me come up with a plan to rid my yard of bandits and tree rats?

Friday Fillins

1. I can’t wait to eat turkey and pumpkin pie with real whipped cream on Thanksgiving.

2. My favorite kind of pie is hmmm, that depends on your definition of ‘pie – it’s either chicken-pot-pie OR anything with real whipped cream.

 

m33. This year, I am particularly thankful for my family and furiends.

4. A funny holiday tradition in my/our house is that Christmas gifts be made (or, on a rare occasion purchased) prior to Thanksgiving…. They do this so they have plenty of time to get the needed bits and pieces… They mainly purrfer to make things because it gifts something special... this might not be very good for those who aren’t very talented at making things, but my staff is quite competent.

This post is purrticipating in a blog hop hosted by McGuffy’s Reader & 15andmeowing Yesterday, they asked these 4 fill in the blank questions:happy-1992300__340

Nutramax Cosequin Calm Chewable Tablets Dog Supplement

Saphera loved Nutramax Cosequin Calm Chewable Tablets Dog Supplement
and so did Livie Lou.  (She shared.) An acquaintance  that she always barks at came over, and while Saphera barked,  her reaction wasn’t even remotely close to how she normally behaves. That was quite unexpected and appreciated.20171108_202246_001
Saphera and LIvie Lou both acted as if the pill was a treat and at the moment, they are happily relaxing. Purrseidon views this as a prime opportunity  to play with tails and give kitty kisses.
The pills are shaped like adorable little bones and made in the USA.

I suspect with a Nutramax Cosequin Calm Chewable Tablet and her thundershirt, she might actually let strange adults touch her… If you don’t know Saphera, you don’t realize that years ago, when she almost looked like a polar bear cub, we found her running next to the interstate – she was in a ‘blind panic’. Among many other injuries, her tail had been broken. What we didn’t realize was that her injuries went deeper than fur, skin, sinew and bone – her nerves were a mess. We say she has ‘doggy PTSD’. Thus, it can take her years to accept a new person. Unless they are a baby – she loves babies. Unfortunately, she loves them to the point that she doesn’t want to relinquish them to their proper parents. This is why Purrseidon views Saphera as her surrogate mom.
Alas, medication that we’ve previously given her in the hope that she would be able to deal with new people, unexpected situations – or thunder, have not helped very much. Worse, other medications have upset her stomach. So far no tummy issues with Nutramax Cosequin Calm Chewable Tablets.p1110164.jpg
We felt fine allowing LIvie Lou to be a co-tester, even though she is half of Purrseidon’s size, while Saphera is some sort of husky blend because this medication is labeled as being appropriate for all sizes. Apparently, whoever came up with the blend noticed that dogs don’t know how to take a deep breath, so they designed this to help support balanced behavior and relaxation in dogs that show signs of fear and anxiety in situations like thunderstorms, travel, loud noise and visitors…. We couldn’t brew up a proper storm to test this, hence the visitor.
