Our World rocked by Holiday visitors

This past weekend - a 'CAT-ASTROPHIE" turned our feline lives upside down.  OVERNIGHT VISITORS!!!

Carol's trying to show me off but it won't work!
We were minding our own business, awaiting Carol our human's return when...THREE humans returned.  The two stranger-humans LOOKED like Carol but were NOT Carol. We were told they were something called "cousins", an invention made to fool cats.  We took off were having none of it. Just look at us in those "leopard boxes" Carol brought to placate us: do we LOOK happy?

Are we enjoying ourselves? NOT!

That night was even MORE confusing.  There was a lump on Carol's bed and when approaching I was horrified to find it was NOT Carol but a "cousin."  I went to look for Carol but she was asleep in her den but on a small cot and it was hard to position myself properly.  Plus Paprika got there first & got the best spot.

new places to rest

I walked out to the living room, seeking out the soft velour sofa but horrors, there was another "cousin" on it, wrapped in a blanket. this was more than any cat should have to put up with. All my secure places turned topsy turvey.

I ran back and forth between the den and living room, wailing soft
Soothed to sleep...finally
ly and trying to tell them they were doing it wrong but no one would listen!  This was outrageous. My wails grew louder. Finally Carol came out to whisper to me to be quiet and coaxed me into the  en where she petted me and where I uneasily settled on a "cat bed" Carol had brought for us. I have told her so many times I'm no longer into "cat beds" - did she forget?

I find a place to display my charms
The next morning was better.  The cousins were finally upright and took up less space.  I got brave and ventured to the sofa finding a good place to display I my charms.  It worked. One of the cousins took my photograph.

At last I was in my element...in pictures! Finally they left not a moment too soon.  The motto of this story is...if we put our paw down and stay, they will go! We had not really slept for hours and
conked out in the den.  Here we are, out cold.  See you in a few days!

Taking a seat at the Thanksgiving table

We feel furrballs should be part of every Turkey event so this year decided to take matters into our own paws. We felt a bit nervous about it but it worked out Cat-tiffically! We've decided to share our experience with the Athena & Marie's  Caturday Art crowd. What are we if not "artsy kitties"

Cats in Thanksgiving Hats

HAPPY UPCOMING TURKEY DAY TO ALL! Wouldn't you know there was a "request' from our human for  us to don Thanksgiving Hats this week.    At least there are "virtual hats" so we don't have to endure wearing a real one. We tried to look as sweet and charming as possible but just for the picture. After this, we "revert" to our real selves. Hey, how do you like my fashionable "bonnet?" Love, Peaches the Cat

The Cats of Sebastion House Slideshow

You won't believe this but our human was unfaithful to us AGAIN.  With OTHER CATS!  She left us & drove an hour to photograph the dogs & cats of her favorite animal shelter 'OUR COMPANIONS' in Ashford, Connecituct..  She makes a slideshow for them annually to help their fundraising & adoption efforts. She told us it is an amazing place with 3 cozy cottages where dogs and cats are showered with love while waiting for adoption...

We are joining Caturday Art and Cat On My Head's Sunday blog hop because, in truth it's creative  our human thinks you would like to know about this beautiful place!

Peaches Picasso effect
Peaches & Paprika Floating Hearts-Lunapic
Here we are recuperating from Halloween  in our FAVORITE POSITIONS!  Our human had fun using Lunapic's Picasso effect for Peaches but for our together shot, we got "floating hearts" so she can show how she loves us!    BUT

While we were resting our human was unfaithful to us!  She put together a slideshow of Fairy Villages for "Winding Trails" a nearby nature place.  Even though it has nothing to do with cats she insisted on showing it to you, saying it is "creative."  We'll show you creative, girl! Anyway for those who want a "cat break' we hope you enjoy the fairy villages.  
Love, P & P

BAAAAD Cats during Halloween week...my report

In the rush of finishing the Halloween slideshow, we're posting this portrait late.  But I want to report Peaches and Paprika for being BAAAAAD cats this Halloween week.  I don't know how they knew about the red devil costumes I made them...but THEY FOUND OUT! This week my usually well-behaved furballs:

1) Got into a cat fight on my ANKLE! Ouch! Paprika was hanging out on my foot, only to be attacked by Peaches who decided she wanted that exact spot. A scuffle on TOP  of me ensued.  

2)  They BROKE INTO MY CUPBOARD.  They STOLE & ATE their probiotic paper envelope Forti-Flora.  Yes, they ATE the envelope! Peaches threw it up later. I knew they loved it but not that much. Will hide it better next time.

There's more: like the hell-bent all over the house crazy chasings like Halloween maniacs but I'll stop here.  I just wanted to REPORT THEM as BAAAAAD cats!  Shape up, Girls! Play nice! No more cupboard thefts!  They truly did live up to their "RED DEVIL" graphic this week.
