Autumn Tortie & Calico Slideshow

Well WE have been verrry busy kitties the last couple weeks, putting together an autumn slideshow honoring forties and calicos such as MUDPIE, CALISTA JO, PIXIE & MORE!  After all, what felines have such autumnal colors? 35 of our FB readers And blogging buddies, proud owners of these fiercely individualistic fireballs participated.  
Next week we will be doing a "black cats" slideshow for Halloween. CLICK BELOW TO SEE THE SLIDESHOW.

Alittle about these multi-colored furballs:  torties & calicos, in beautiful orange, black, cinnamon and sometimes white, are notorious for being, um, "free spirits."  Remember the word, "Tortitude?" These gals have lots of that!  They can be little terrors when things don't go their way but are also playful, inventive and fiercely loving.  As the secretary for 2 calicos, I agree with the above completely!

Now that you have visited all us scrumptious Torties, we hope you will hop and meet many more cats with their interesting stories...

Window Spats

Alas, Our human fell in love with black & white this week so our lovely Peach colors are just a memory.

 I want you to know that Peaches was very discourteous to me when we were looking out the window this week. So I swatted her one. Do you blame me? Love, -- Paprika the Cat

I was just attending to my cleanliness routines...why is my brat sister harassing me?

So I SWATTED her one.  Do you blame me?  

Peaches:  I don't have to takin NOTHIN' from you, squirt.  Check out the angle of my beautiful pointed tail. Bet YOU can't do THAT!


Paprika: I can do that and MORE. And I think my sister Peaches is a "spoil-sport. Tune in soon. 

Today we're joining Marie and Athena's Caturday Art hop. Our pix fixed the Lunapic Escher black & white effect. Fun! But we want to be peachy again. See you there and please visit those fun artsy kitties below!

The Last Days of Summer

Well, we have decided to make the BEST of the labor day weekend at THE BEACH as summer time is almost over! I finally persuaded Paprika to enjoy it with me! We are joining Caturday Art Saturday and Cat on My Head's Sunday hop to enjoy it!

Paprika getting into the spirit at last while I try on yet another pair of sunglasses!

Paprika apparently went way overboard about the whole beach experience. The things I have to put up with!

Here she is, feeling no pain!

We had a blast playing with sandcastles. That activity is MADE for cats!

All good things must come to an end...Mrow & alas...

Happy Labor Day weekend to all and may you enjoy these last blissful days...

Peaches & the Fox Blanket

Well, surprise, surprise, I got a new blanket. My human thought it would be fleecy and nice...she did not notice there was a FOX on it. Well I got on this blanket and saw this pair of eyes...WOOW...who are YOU? I asked him.  The fox didn't answer my questions so of course I decided to make a pillow out of his head and go to sleep.  What a weird experience....

So my human told me I looked kinda grouchy in this picture. I ask you, what is the purpose of being a tortie-calico if you can't show TORTITUDE?

This week we are joining Athena and Marie's Caturday Art hop.  Our undaunted human used Lunapic's filter Landscape cuz she admired Athena's picture last week!

Happy National Tooth Fairy Day!

TOOTH FAIRY TUESDAY!!! I have been commissioned to be a tooth fairy today in celebration of National Tooth Fairy Day! So if you know any children or have any young relatives who need teeth, I, Paprika, am authorized to deliver one. Peaches has agreed to act as my assistant though she has been very bossy about it, like I don't know my job. Hope you'll forgive my not celebrating Tummy Tuesday, but they made me cover up my tummy today with this pink organdy stuff. Don't know what gets into humans sometimes. Need any teeth?

Love, Paprika the Cat

PS: As you'll note from the conversation below, Peaches tried to "take over" and I had to put her in her place!

Paprika's Rapture

Check out that  sly,"zoned out" pic of me on bottom left.  I was flying' high!  Happy Caturday to all!

Meowbox Summer Camp Collection Product Review

Camp Cats Peaches & Paprika ready for action!

Oh Boy!  We heard  today that a special box just arrived for us. It was the "Meowbox Summer Camp Collection" - a surprise  we heard about from our adoring human.

Naturally we dressed for the occasion!

Meowbox, according to our human is a special "goodies" box created for cats like us who like surprises.  We had just gotten a different box from another company last month that was b-o-r-i-n-g.  But we guardedly held out hope that this one would be neat.

It WAS!  This  Meowbox had the most scrumptious goodies in it we ever experienced!  A cat could not be more pleased.  Here's how it went down!
We were delighted when we opened the box to find our names were on it! And a cool gift card about kitties at Camp. These greetings made us feel warm & fuzzy.
And then we pawed the box open! Mrow-Wow-double Mrowwww! 

There were the most incredible things in it which SMELLED GOOD:

  • KITTY CAMPER DUO: a HOT DOG and CAMPFIRE toy with catnip which got us excited about camping! (and catnapping)
  • CATNIP S'MORES: tasty catnip filled treats
  • CAMP BADGE TRIO: Crinkly stuffed 'MEOWIT' Badges
  • CAT CAMP BALL CHASER: - by Animalove. Blue & yellow handmade toy with sisal, rattan & wood. We chased after it immediately!
  • "IT'S PURRELY NATURAL" Chicken Treats 
  •  - freeze dried & containing no additives

The first four items were by R2P Pet Ltd, who surely knows about felines and furballs. The chicken treats were by Animalove. Yum!

Of course we could hardly wait to try it all out, but deciding what to try first was part of the fun!  Sniffing and Whiffing and cat-vestigating were an integral part of the camp experience!

Kitty Camper Duo: - Hot Dog & Campfire Toy

We were mesmerized by the large "hot dog" and far more so, once we, um "whiffed" it!


We thought this toy was beyond adorable! We tried to pull off the marshmallows and there was a little tree behind it!

Camp Badge Trio 

Every kitty camper needs badges! These stuffed 'Meowit' badges from Camp Meowbox fit the bill! Paprika likes the blue one...I'll take them all!

 I was then told by my human to "play nice" and share with sister, Paprika. Bah!

 "It's Purely Natural Chicken Treats"

Since we started to feel drowsy, it was time to wake up with some tasty treats.  We gave in at last. Our human told us we could have some another day too!

Cat Camp Ball Chaser

The last toy we tried was the most fun of all cuz we got to chase it! It is a unique toy handmade with sisal, rattan & wood.  I took it over and would not Paprika near it!

Throughout the, um, "event," we were all "high energy" and outdid ourselves with jumps and lunges. Paprika even rose up into the air!

Paprika's Bliss 

So at the end, sisfur Paprika (left) completely "blissed out" and I myself went into a divine catnip stupor as well!

- Signed,
Peaches the Cat
