I'm Back!!!

My little break turned out to be longer than expected. My humans were supposed to be back on Tuesday, but ended up not coming back until Wednesday. Jen got sick over the weekend and had to go to the doctor on Tuesday. I'm happy to report that staying with Frank's Grandma turned out just fine. She gave me lots of love, attention and treats!!

There is a big kitty and a crazy woofie at Jen's parent's house. I asked her to share pictures of them with you...

This is Bigfoot. He has six toes on each of his front feet. I bet he is a wise mancat.

This is Lucy. She is only a year old and is still crazy. If she calms down a little then I can go visit West Virginia. I hope that happens. I very much want to meet Bigfoot.

Please Don't Go

Dear Humans:

I know I bite your feet in the middle of the night and steal food from your plates while you are trying to eat. I may have scratched up the loveseat and put holes in the new sheets. I am possibly responsible for the bowl full of potpourri that disappeared and for hiding that brand new SD card you bought for the digital picture frame. But I didn't mean it. I'm just a mancat in training and have to play. Please don't go away for the long weekend. I realize Jen hasn't been home to WV since Christmas, but can't you at least take me with you? Oh yeah, I forgot about the crazy woofie who you say will scare me. You say that I'm going to stay with Frank's grandma, but I'll miss you. Four days is gonna seem like forever. I won't even get to visit my friends. This is so not fair. You better bring me back a really good present.

Worst regards,
Tuck, your forgotten kitten

P.S. I hope all the kitties and their humans on the CB have a really great Memorial Day weekend!! See you on Wordless Wednesday!

Mancat (In Training) Monday: You Can't Stay Mad at Me

I have learned a very important lesson in my mancat training. When a kitty does something bad...ummm, say like knocking one of his human's favorite candles off the shelf and breaking it, he must quickly do something impossibly cute. Humans can never stay mad when you are being cute. It's even better if you hold the cute pose long enough for them to get the flashy box. Like below, I pretended to fall asleep with a feather on my face. I stayed that way just long enough for her to get the picture. Then, I crawled up in her lap and snuggled.

Candle? What candle? She has already forgotten about it! Another lesson mastered.

Fashionable Friday

Even Mancats In Training need fashionable accessories. I found this great little mancat bag yesterday. It's perfect for carrying around life's necessities...things like treats, toys and bits of lettuce.

Mancat (In Training) Monday: Kiss My Paw

So human, you want to sit down next to me on the loveseat? I suppose I can allow this on one condition....

Kiss my paw. Oh yeah, and go get me some treats.

It's an Addiction...

Like some of you other kitties out there, I also got an email a couple of weeks ago from Isabel, from Addiction Foods, inviting me to try their food. I said sure. I'm an adventurous sort of mancat-in-training, so I'll try anything once.

Jen said it is very healthy. It's all-natural, grain-free and contains lots of things that are good for me, such as venison and dried vegetables. I checked out the ingredient list and sure enough, some of the first ingredients are venison, dried potatoes, dried kelp, dried carrots, dried cranberries, dried apples and dried spinach. Yum! Addiction also makes all-natural canned food, but I'm not allowed to eat that. I only get dry food. For any kitty who doesn't like venison, they also have Salmon Bleu...which is made with real Salmon, cranberries, blueberries and raspberries! It sounds delicious!

Hmm, what do we have here?

This package smells pretty good. Why haven't my humans opened it yet? They are so slow.

Let me me see what's in here...I want some of that!

I couldn't even wait to get it in my bowl. I made Jen feed me out of her hand.

More please...

Fine, I will just take matters into my own hands!

As you can see, I took to the food immediately! The closest pet store that carries Addiction Pet Food is a half hour away, but Jen told me she can order it online. I think I am going to make the switch. The only thing that could make this any better would be if it was served to me on a bed of lettuce! JEN...did you hear that??

Oh, one more note...Addiction also makes food for woofies. Apparently, the food won an award by some woofie magazine. So if you have a woofie sibling they can get addicted too!

Mancat (In Training) Monday: Make My Day

So, you won't share your chicken? That's fine. I'm here watching, waiting. You have to put your feet down at some point. And when you do I'm putting the bitey on those toes.

Sunday Wash

No better time than the present for a bath. The humans have been holding me and petting me, so I can feel their filth on my fur.

First, I have to stretch the neck. Don't want to pull a muscle or anything...

Now, I start with the shoulder. It needs the full tongue squeegeeing.

Then, I move down the leg. It's important to go with the growth of the fur, never against.

Last, I wash down my paws so I can use them to clean my face and neck. My humans love to touch my face and rub my neck (and maybe I like it a little too.)

There we go, I'm all clean. I can now relax and enjoy my Sunday. Hope you all have a great one!

Fat Friday?

I had to go to the V-E-T last weekend for a couple of shots. I was worried because Jen kept saying that it looked like I had gained weight. I was becoming concerned because this could impact my status in the lovely Chilli's Silky and Slender Crew. The first thing the V-E-T said when he saw me was "did he fill out some?" Oh no, I thought, time for a diet. And then they weighed me. I only gained one ounce. Turns out the fur on my belly is getting pretty long and makes me look chubby. Great.
Now, I am going to be paranoid when the flashy box comes out. Do you think this picture makes my tail look fat?
