Meezer Monday- Happy New Year!!!!!

Castor: Hey effurrycat! Boy this has been an exciting week. First off, Christmas! Wowie! Sandy claws was furry good to us. We has lots of goodies and toys to play wif. And best of all, mommy made effurryone (including us and the two woofies) ham and cheese omelets for breakfast Christmas morning. Here we are gobbling up our yummies!

Pollux: I eated too much ham.... oooo my tummy!

Pollux: Here I am posing wif our not furry sister Emily. She's got bed head, doesn't she? You can see some of Sandy Claws goodies in this picture.

Pollux: The next day we went to the vet. We came through our hoohahectomy just fine. So now we have been assured we have no reason to return to the vet for a whole year! He may have kept our hoohahs for some strange reason, but if it means no more shots and rides in the kitty carrier, that's OK. We were a bit woozie from the operation, and were furry confused that we couldn't land our jumps very well that night. We have a clean bill of health. Castor is now a solid 3.5 pounds, and I am just over 4 pounds. I may look thinner, but I carry all my weight in my lankiness.

Castor: Yesterday, Pollux had a bit of an unusual misadventure. Mommy and daddy went to have dinner with friends, so we had the whole place to ourselves. When they got home, I let them know Pollux was in trouble. They called for him, and he didn't come running. They was furry worried. Well, he started to meow and call for them, and they finally found him. IN THE WALL!!!!!

Pollux: You see, they are remodeling their rec room, and we all know that we meezers are furry curious. Somehow, I got up to the top of the wall eight feet up. The ceiling has not been reinstalled yet, so, somehow I wound up inside a plumbing chase wall where the kitchenette will eventually be. Mommy and daddy did the only thing they could think to do and cut a hole in the wall so I could get out. I was SO glad to be free.

Castor: Here's the hole in the wall that Pollux escaped through. Good thing the humans are good at drywall repair! Excuse the mess. It's a big construction project right now!

Pollux: I immediately used the litter box and had some stinky goodness and water to ease my poor frazzled nerves. They we furry curious as to how I wound up in the wall. While she was taking a picture of the hole, mommy got a clue as to how that came about... I likes ladders.

Castor: OK, so that's our exciting week. Now it's time to be party cats! Mommy and daddy have a bottle of champage ready for the evening's festivities, and we might just have to help ourselves! Shhhhh! Don't tell them!

Effurrycat eat, drink, and be merry and celebrate New Year's Eve safely! Cheers!

Family Game Night Friday!

It's Friday, so time for Family Game time! Mommy and Emily wanted to play High Ho Cherry-o, so I got to learn a new skill. Here I am spinning the wheel. This is a perfect feline game. That wheel is really cool!

Pollux: My turn, Emily!

Emily: No my turn!

Pollux: N0, my turn!

You all may wonder where Castor is. He has decided that soemtimes Emily is too loud for him. He usually hides when Emily gets too loud. I just know he'll come around to her though. It's now her job to feed us stinky goodness, and we are ALL ABOUT stinky goodness!

Daisy asked us what we eat. I am delighted to report we eat Science Diet hard food for kittens (usually a bowl a day between us!) and we share a can of Iams stinky goodness for kittens (usually chicken flavor! Yum!), and whenever the family has eggs, we always get our very own plate of scrambled eggs. There are also yummy treats for special occasions. Last night we got our claws trimmed. I don't mind it so much, but Castor hates it and growls. For a treat afterwards, we got TURKEY!!! It was all purrs and forgiveness for the humiliation of having claws trimmed after that.

There has been a rather disturbing conversation around the house lately. Mommy made an appointment for a trip to the V-E-T on Dec 26th. We've been for shots before, and we really don't mind Dr. Davis much. He's a nice enough human. But there has been some talk about how we're starting to come of age now for neutering. We're not really sure what that means, but it can't be good. Mommy says it's what's best for us so there aren't more kittens in the world than there are homes for them. I guess that's OK, but what does that have to do with us? We have a home. She also said we'll be microchipped so if we ever get out of the house, we'll have a better chance of finding our way home. That sounds OK, and she said it's just like a shot. We're not looking forward to our trip to the V-E-T, but we know mommy will have yummy treats for us when we get home, so I guess it'll be OK.

Meezer Monday- Tusselling Lesson #2

Pollux: Today's lesson- Get plenty of rest between rounds. It especially helps if you get as close as your opponent is willing to let you and yawn REALLY big in their face when you have aromatic kitten breath!

Castor: Whoa! That is some smelly breath! Smelly cat, smelly cat! What are they feeding you?

Pollux: Same thing they're feeding you, bro! Sorry to disappoint you guys, but I haven't attempted to learn that 5 foot pounce yet. I was exploring and studying the pounce from on top the shelves last Tuesday. Mommy wasn't watching me, but was sitting at the 'puter right next to the shelves. Well, I guess I wasn't so graceful that day 'cause I FELL right off the top of the shelf! Mommy was furry surprised, and so was I! I just sat there stunned for a moment, then regained my grace and sauntered off. I needed her to know that I MEANT to do that.

Meezer Monday- Tusselling Lesson #1

Greetings! I Pollux have decided since Castor and I are expert tussellers, we will impart some of our knowledge on our fellow feline bloggers. How are we experts? What are our qualifications you might ask? Well, we've been sparring partners since our Mommycat Stella concieved us, and we spend literally every waking moment trying to get the upper paw on each other. So I'd say that qualifies us as experts! So, while tusselling the other day, I noticed, that Castor kept getting the upper paw on me. Not hot! So, I decided Lesson #1 is to seek higher ground!As you can see in this photo, I DO NOT have a good position, although I can still push Castor away with my paw. I'm WAY lankier!
Here, I have sought higher ground.... It's only a box though, and moments later, Castor pounced and knocked me off the box. You see, though I am lankier, he's stockier. He's always pouncing me and throwing his weight around!
Castor: It helps to intimidate your opponent by looking bigger too. As you can see, my tail is totally fluffed out, so Pollux know's I'm bigger and way badder than him!

Pollux: OK, you've got me on the bigger part, but I tend to be more of an explorer. Here, I have sought higher ground. I am ON TOP of the tall shelves in mommy's office! I'm seeking out my unsuspecting prey beneath me!
One must be careful, however, to avoid distractions! I have never been on top of the shelves before, and I found this nifty deer skull with HUGE antlers! I simply had to investigate this new find for a minute!

OK, snooping over. I have my prey clearly in my sights now... I have the Upper Paw! Now, stay tuned for next lesson- how to pounce from five feet in the air... To be completely honest, I have to work on that lesson myself... I never completed this pounce. It was simply too high!

Warm Wednesday

Pollux: After much scuffling over the highly priced (and momentarily lost) furry mouse, we have decided that snuggling in our fleecy bed is much better, especially since it's now in the low 30's at night outside. Mommy and daddy have even spoiled us by putting our bed next to the space heater!
Castor: This fleecy bed is one of my most favoritest places, espcially when the heater is on!
Pollux: I'm still WAY more interested in being where the people are. After all, they might mess up my filing system if I don't snoopervise them!
Castor: That furry mouse sure was fun though. We may have to whap it around a bit more after a few hours of cat-napping!
Pollux: I was the one who won the Mexican Standoff by the way. I made the first pounce... but Castor somehow was the one who walked away with the mousie... I don't know how THAT happened... I'm not sure he fights fair!
Castor: All's fair in love and mousies, my brother!
