Pull Up Your Cat

8:59 am in Uncategorized by Margaret

Hello Cat people. It’s Sunday so it’s time to pull up your cat and share kitteh stories, (though other animal stories are welcome too). Pretty slow couple of weeks here at Margaret’s Kuroneko’s house. Kuroneko has decided that she likes the carpet on the side of the sofa and she spends a lot of time climbing up, batting at me and then running back down. For a five year old cat, she still has a lot of kitten energy left, though she also spends a lot of time sleeping in her Closet of Solitude.

She really enjoyed Thanksgiving turkey…on Thursday. By Sunday, she gave it a sniff and looked at me with a “what, are you kidding me?”, look. So she’s back to her regular diet. She’s been putting on a lot of fur for the winter which I find odd as so far it’s been even warmer than last year. I’ve worn a sweater twice I think. I even had the air conditioner on yesterday! Poor kitty is going to have this enormous, thick blanket attached to her and no need for it I’m afraid.

On to the pictures.

Kuroneko picture of the week. I took a surprise pic of her
in her Closet of Solitude. The flash made her eyes look like
she’s full of anti freeze. (Don’t give anti freeze to your pets!)


Obligatory cute kitten picture of the week is a Christmasy kitten, via lolcats.

The Pirates of Penzance show us how to walk with cat like tread, (though they don’t seem very quiet to me, get a load of Kevin Kline’s dancing! w00t!)

Please share your kitteh and pet stories with us. We love hearing them. I hope everybody has a wonderful week. Please be sure to set aside some time to spend with the animals who share your life. Feeding them, giving them clean water and making sure they are healthy isn’t enough. We need to let them know they are loved and appreciated too.

Pull Up Your Cat

Good morning! When your owners have decided that they are through having you feed and admire them, pull them up right here for some kitty pictures and stories.

Really nothing to report here. Kuroneko has finally gotten used to the new side on my sofa and she’s starting to use it to scratch, which is great as that was the intention of doing it to begin with.

I always worry when it’s cold outside because I don’t like leaving the furnace on when I’m at work but I can’t leave her to be cold all day while I’m away. It’s an electric furnace though so I suppose that it’s no more likely to catch fire than any other electric appliance. The best I can do is keep the filter changed and try not to be such a worry wart. I sometimes make a nest for her with blankets but she never uses it, preferring to do her own nesting.

I have a request for our community: I’m hoping OmAli will stop by because I tried to email her a few weeks ago to help support Richard’s cats but the email bounced back at me. I’m not sure if I copied it wrong or what but maybe I can get one of you who knows my own email to give me her contact information? Thanks a bunch!

On to this week’s pic of the pics!

Check out this video of, (not actually), Swedish skydiving cats. Meeeeeeoooooooowwwwwww!

Kuroneko picture of the week: Kuroneko sometimes finds that little arrow thingy that moves on the screen fascinating.


This week’s obligatory cute kitten picture is a two-fer. The tortie makes me think of Richard for some reason. Awwww. Via lolcats.

I hope everybody has a wonderful week. It’s Thanksgiving so make sure your pets are safe if you have a houseful of people or are traveling but above all, have a safe and happy one. Whatever your plans, please be sure to set aside some time to spend with whatever animals share your life. They are simply devoted to us and we owe it to them to treat them like the monarchs they are.
