A Typical Morning with a CAT!!!!!

So I’m a night owl and usually go to bed at 1 or 2 am  and sleep for 10 hours.  That’s how I function and makes me happy.  Dac thinks that is WAY to long to wait to be fed so she insists on being fed between 7 am and 10 am.  Here’s her routine:

  1. Scratch at the blanket so the human lets me in.
  2. Climb all over the human and poke her with my nails.
  3. Lick her hands or start to make biscuits.
  4. Climb out of blanket.
  5. Repeat 1-4 until human gets up.

I get up and fed all three fur balls and climb back into bed.  I don’t free feed my cats because of the risk of obesity.  Java is a pig and would eat herself silly.  I would love to free feed Dac, but not going to happen because of my other two cats.  It’s much easier to have healthy weight cats than have to get a cat to lose weight.

Daciquiri

Daciquiri aka Dac is the baby of the family.  She was born in fall of 2013.  I had two cats already and didn’t really want another one, but I fell in love with her.  She also had a stump of a tail and I have always loved unique cats.  In October I smuggled her home so nobody would know I had acquired my third cat.  It took a while, but eventually my other cats started “tolerating” her (I can’t say they love her because of her massive amounts of energy).

Dac is an energize bunny, a busy beaver, a momma’s cat (can’t be out of my sight for long periods of time), a cuddler, and is very inquisitive.    If I need a laugh Dac can make me laugh.  She also loves to carry things in her mouth and can basically just flop any which way and fall asleep.

Swimming in the Toilet

Dac has a fascination with the toilet and she loves watching when I flush the toilet.  Normally I wait til she jumps off and close the lid, other times I leave the lid open.

I went into the bathroom to wash my hands and Dac jumped onto the toilet and I heard a kerplunk and a splash.  Yup the lid was open.  I chased after her with a towel and tried to dry her off the best I could and contain my laughter.  Luckily it was only her back legs and tail that were wet.  And no she hasn’t learned to avoid the toilet, she still loves it.

The other day I went to use the toilet and she had dropped my toothpaste into the toilet.  I fished it out with the toilet brush and promptly threw it out.

Yup, Dac is an entertaining cat.

18 Struggles Only A Cat Owner Understands

I need to write something/blog something.  Quick, think…………  Ah here’s an article I can write on:

https://www.thedodo.com/struggles-every-cat-owner-has-1150355704.html

#1.  Yup Dac did this to me.  I actually went outside to see if she escaped, even though it was physically impossible for her to go outside.

#5.  I have just accepted the fact I had “sand” on my floors.  I really need to buy a mini or a handheld vacuum cleaner to quickly sweep up the “sand”.

17.  I have given up having plants in the house.  Plants and cats don’t mix.

18.  Yup, good thing Dac is a cutie.

Cloning Cats

For some reason last night I was thinking of cloning cats.  If the technology existed would you clone your cat(s)?

Dac I would never clone.  One Dac in a lifetime is enough.  She is a beautiful cat, but her energy level is insane.

Eddie I would consider it if they could take out the gene that causes him not to use the litter box.  I have 3 litter boxes and clean them nightly and he doesn’t use them.

Java I would clone in a heartbeat.  She is a beautiful and shy cat.  I have nothing evil to say about her.

The start of crazy season has started.  It’s actually not that bad, but still I’m finding it hard to find time to blog.  I want to keep the wheels on this blog so lets see if I do it.

Welcome to Unipurrsity

Hello my name is Purrfesor Daiquiri Gray Trouble.

I will be teaching you the course ” Living life to the fullest like their is no tomorrow”.

In this course you will learn how to maximise the use of your nine lives.  We are the only species with nine lives so let’s make sure we use them up wisely and have as much fun as we can cram in.

Class will be held on Tuesday and Thursday.  It will start at 1 pm with a 15 minute cat nap at 1:30 pm and end at 2:30 pm so you can squeeze in another cat nap at home before supper time.

Course work:

  • Obtain decibel rating of your human when you are either swinging from the chandelier or re-arranging the blinds.
  • Learn what swear words your human likes uttering so you know when you are really living life to the max.
  • Learn cat yoga so when you’re enjoying life your humans stress won’t affect you

{52 Snapshots of Life} Week 18: Below

Everyone who has a cat knows that cats think the world revolves around them so the human is below and the cat is on top.

During the summer months I’m super busy and sort of (in my mind) neglect my cats.  I feel kind of guilty and being a crazy cat lady I promised to make up for it.  A week ago I got a cat tower and it’s their mom feels guilty, Christmas, and birthday present.  Dac is in love with the cat tower.  Eddie and Java are sometimes on it, but the amount Dac spends on it, it was well worth it.

{52 Snapshots of Life} Week 16: Quizzical

Quizzical is an expression.  A look of confusion and going hmmmm.  So I’m going to make my readers have very quizzical looks by doing a quiz, bwahaha.

  1. What breed is Dac?
  2. Where did I get my cats from?
  3. What does the human like doing?
  4. What is Dac’s favorite toy?
  5. How many cats do I have?
