Newsday Tuesday—All the Mews That's Fit to Print

In this week's headlines, shortly after 11 the other night, we heard GUNSHOTS that sounded like they were coming from the street behind La Casa Keisha. There were anywhere between 5 and 8 shots. Pop thought they were firecrackeres but TW and I knew instantly what they were. I used to hear them all the time on the PAW back in the hood. TW had a friend in "Alphabet City" in NYC, who she used to stay overnight with. Gunshots are the norm in that part of town but we NEVER hear them around here. She told me to stay away from the windows as if I didn't know Anyway, Pop turned on his police scanner and the cops were combing our hood so Pop knew they weren't firecrackers. C'mon, doesn't EVERYBODY keep a police scanner in their house? It has nothing to do with my background.

If I get a new tree, I hope it's WAAAYYY  taller than this one
BREAKING NEWS!!! We had a huge box delivered today that weighs a ton or more. The box says Majestic Cat Products! I wonder what Pop bought me! I hope it's a new tree that reaches the ceiling. I've almost worn all the sisal off my old one which is only about 40 inches tall. TW needs to get video of me climbing up that tree. I wonder if we'll donate this one to A Call 4 Paws or if Pop will let me keep BOTH of them! They could get rid of some of THEIR furniture and they will fit nicely. Don't you think that's the humane thing to do?

I've been very good the past 3 days and have been eating all my grain-free stinky goodness. I'd been off it a couple of days and TW was worried that I'd get dehydrated or something. Secretly, I think she was more worried that the money she'd spent on this food, which is not cheap, was flying out the window. Right now, I seem to like the chicken best. Usually, I only eat the tuna and salmon. I like to keep her on her toes.

I'm sorry if we haven't been commenting on my furrends' blogs daily. TW either has an ear/sinus infection, pinched nerve in her neck or her vertigo came back big time. When she sits at the computer any length of time, she get incredibly dizzy in the head. Just turning her head makes her dizzy She's even talking about visiting Dr. Quack, her know-nothing doctor. Unfortunately, her insurance doesn't cover any tests so his guess is as good as hers. MOL! I think she just needs to be bitten by a professional like myself.

There's a 24-hour Santa Paws Drive pawty this weekend. Lots of cool prizes. I'll be djing Caturday night. Don't forget to donate a few green papers using the widget on the sidebar. They're also selling $1 raffle tickets to win some pawsome goodies like a year's supply of Greenies, a cat scratcher lounge and even a Bissell turbo prize pack. Read about the wonderful shelters who's pets will have a Merry Christmas with your help and mine.

Last bit of news is there is still time to enter my Royal Canin giveaway. Any comment received before December 14th will be entered to win one of 10 RC Discovery boxes filled with their Selective formulas. You know you want them! This food is CK tested and approved!

Yes CK, by all means, keep aways from the windows! Hey, a new tree sure sounds like fun!!!

Yikes - CK - I think you and your family had better move here by me. We never hear gun shots, but M says it does sometimes happen in the city. So happy you and your family are safe. So sorry TW is still not feeling better. Hope she's getting lots and lots of rest and can get some medicine to help her. Dizzies are no fun cuz M has had to put up with some of that too. Purring for TW to feel better. purr purr purr purr purr

Sparkle said...

That would be awesome if you got another cat tree, CK! And of course your humans should let you keep both - what do they need furniture for anyway? They can make do.

Pumpkinpuddy said...

I'm so glad you're all right and the gunshots weren't near enough to you to hurt you. I'd be furry scared if I heard that. *shivers*

Can't wait to see pics of your new cat tree!

Clooney said...

Whoa, CK there is lots going on at your house and your 'hood for sure. We hope your pressie is a cat tree that would be awesome. We send healing purrs to TW for her to feel better as soon as possible.

ugh vertigo!! No fun!!! Mom gets that too, as if she isn't DIZZY enough!!

We donated to Santa Paws a week or so ago :)

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Bissell??? Oh dear Cod, don't they make like (shhhhhh) vacuum cleaners or sumfing? ::shudder:: That is very inneresting about the gunshots. We don't ever hear any around here, but The Human works in a sort of shady neighborhood where drivebys are a regular occurrence. I purrsonally do not like the sound of THAT!

I think the Humans should donate a piece of furniture so you can haz BOTH kitty trees.

Finally, I LOVES my new header ♥ ♥ ♥

Angel Prancer Pie said...

We agree! More kitteh furniture, less hooman furniture! We'll cross our paws fur you to get it!

Fusa said...

GUNSHOTS???? I would be so scared I would never come out from under da bed! Sure hope TW's neck gets better and that it not too serious. And I definitely think you should get to keep BOTH cat trees of course. Our neighbor was selling hers, it's brand new and never used since her cat ran away. Mom wanted to buy it but dad said no, that I already climb on everything in the entire house and that there's no place to put it. Hmpf I say!

Tamago said...

Oh, no's scary. I heard gunshot once (I believe it was gunshot) when I was living in an apartment long time ago. That neighborhood became more and more dangerous and I am glad I moved.
Please be careful, stay safe.

Admiral Hestorb said...

CK, you and TW stay safe, well your Pop too of course! I haven't heard a gunshot in the neighborhood For a while and hope I don't anytime soon.

My mom still remembers your mom calling her when she was so hurt with her broken wrist and terribly hurt legs. Mom appreciated the care so much snd has never forgotten that kindness.

Now my mom said she wishes she could purr for yours but I will do that and she can purray.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hello, my Sweet Tough Girl! Hope your Mom is feeling better, and also hoping you are making progress in convincing the Humans to let you keep both trees. I sense the Male Human may be the weak one. Start there.

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

CK, we hope TW feels better soon. Glad you are a'scared of gunshots, just stay low. And we're with Spitty on working on the male human to keep both trees, just think you could have a forest.

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

Sorry. We meant NOT scared.

GLOGIRLY said...

Go easy on TW, CK. She deserves a little slack. Emphasis on LITTLE. Tell her to feel better. I hear chicken is good for her ills. How about sharing a little stinky goodness with her?
xo Katie

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Okay, here's the deal. The Human DOES refrigerate the rest of the jar, but I will not eat it cold. So she has to take the jar out and let it come to room temp before I will enjoy it a second time. As if I should eat it cold--puh-leez!!

This stuff is a rare treat and sometimes I eat half the jar and then it keeps getting shoved back in the fridge and eventually goes bad. That breaks my flinty little heart! When I get some, it seems such a tragedy to let half go to waste!!

Yes, okay, I *do* like it off her finger like a big wuss, and no I NEFFUR put the bitey on her. Self-interest, y'know?
