Monday Mews Report

A bunch of stuff has been going on recently. What kind of stuff? I'm gonna fill you in.

Woman, this is what a spider looks like even if mine wasn't in the bathtub.
Thursday I, the World's Most Stunning Cat, found an itsy bitsy spider in TW's bathroom. Not only did I kill that spider but I ate it as well. It was nommy. I'm sure it tasted better than that 4-lb choco-bunny I featured yesterday.

Then Saturday, when Pop opened his blinds, I was amazed to see another small spider. I was staring at it but it was beyond my reach. Then it jumped on the adjourning wall, where TW attempted to kill it with her slipper. Let me tell you, she whacked at that poor thing without showing any mercy. Only thing was, her "spider" was actually a thumbtack hole in the wall. Pop killed the real spider. HAH! Last week they finally cleaned the outside of our windows and Pop sez they disturbed all the vermin and sent them scurrying inside.

You may have been reading about this campaign to elect the Cat Ruler of the World over at Zee and Zoey's blog. It's all done for fun and for charity. Four of the six cat-i-dates are furrends of mine. I was tearing my furs out trying to decide who to back. I love Austin's platform. I love Brian's charity and how he's supported it faithfully for years. Who doesn't love Sparkle's wit and wisdom and her campaign slogan has great appeal for me. And Katie is Katie.  Should I wait for the debate to decide? I made no secret that I could be bought. That's what politics is all about here in Hudson County. Only one cat-i-date had the initiative to contact me with a proposal that would make me richer than I could ever dream of. I have jumped aboard the campaign trail as out-in-the-field campaign manager for one of these kittehs. You'll have to read that cat's blog to find out. This is gonna be a really fun ride.

In other mews, the peeps pulled out the refrigerator to clean behind it and I'm embarrassed to say there were only *whispers* 2 things of mine: a small spring and a security plastic from a bottle. I've read about humans who find hundreds of smousy toys, etc, when they look under stoves and refrigerators. Color me red for embarrassed. I'll try to do better this year.

So CK, whose campaign did you jump onto. We can't wait to find out. It is a really hard decision. Hope you made a big pot of catnip for helping that certain kitty. Have a great week. Loved the story about the spider on the wall.

Spider snax are yummy Keisha. Have a great Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Brian said...

I don't think any spider stands a chance with you on the job CK!

4 out of 6? Why aren't you our friend? We are gonna kick ass in the debate tomorrow.

CATachresis said...

Hmmmm! Austin is gutted! He's been trying to play it clean (meaning the underhand dealings are behind closed doors!) Obviously he has to do a bit of a rethink on tactics!!

Deb Barnes - Zee and Zoey said...

Meow-Wow!! Let the games begin!! This campaign sure is heating up... poor spider, doesn't even get a chance to vote now...

Sparkle said...

It actually didn't occur to me to solicit among the Cat Blogosphere for a campaign manager - I wanted to keep any controversy out of my choice. Which left me with a) my human or b) Binga... maybe I should be soliciting!

Katnip Lounge said...

We can only hope you held out for the sammin, CK. One should be bribed with only the best.

Sherlock the cat said...

Good job at your spider patrol. They are nommy snacks!

Mariodacat said...

Ohhh I love spiders. So tasty!! They are fun to bat around too., Hmmm you a campaign manager!!!! Congratulations. I'm waiting to see you the lucky cat will be to get you! Way to go CK.

CCL Wendy said...

I know what you can do, CK! Hide all the spiders you've killed behind the fridge so your peeps can find them next time they go to clean. That should give you plenty of time to stockpile them. Good idea, huh?

Katie and Glogirly said...

Who could it be, who could it be?

I can't imagine ANY of these fine, upstanding cats offering a ::shhhh:: bribe.

I mean, nothing wrong with a gift or two or twenty between furriends...

CK - Sassy here. Once I caught a lizard! I was very pround of myself! But Mommie took it away from me. She said she did not know what kind it was.

The Island Cats said...

CK, it sounds like TW might need some glasses, beating that thumb tack hole like that!!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

As I said to Katie: Katie, You have just made this ManCat's decision even HARDER. I mean, I love YOU, I love CK, I love SPARKLE!!! I efun love Austin and Brian! I'd prolly luff the others too, if I knowed them. I dunno WHAT a ManCat is supposed to do! Why, maybe he'll set up four dummy blogs and email and vote four time?? That's what Mayor Daley woulda done back in '60. Hmmmmmm.

Now onto the spider story---HA HA HA!! That is SO something my Human would have done. If her glasses are not on her face, almost ANYTHING could be a spidey! Yeah, 2 toys is pretty lame. I do way better than that -- though to be fair, the Human does not clean behind the fridge every year, either, so I have longer to amass a collection.

Anonymous said...

squeeee!!!my Mom would have dedded that spider even it was a spot on the wall!! She is crazy over spiders!!

As for election...I am all for the lady cats, but I do luv Brian's platform, and Spitty is my neighbor across the bay...hmmmm...must watch and record the cat-i-date debates...will decide later...Savvy

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Keisha spiders drive me NUTS! Oh and don't feel bad about not having many toys under your fridge, that just means you are adept at HUNTING and CAPTURING your prey. you don't let the prey slip outta your paws!
Love, Cody

The Cat From Hell said...

Dearest Katie!
Me agrees! me loves all the candidates and me would like them all to win, but since yous is Katie's Manager, me will has to choose...who shall it be?
Kisses
Nellie

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Oh CK, I just do not know WHAT to do! Fret, fret, fret! Katie! And Sparkle! And Brian! and AUSTIN, my mate Austin!

I dunno if I have to follow my heart and vote for the LadyCat(s) or be true to my Brothers and go for one of the Boys.

Fret fret fret.

At least it's a distraction from having been mutilated.

I was SO relieved to hear Ban Ki-moon reassure us that the UN was not going to invade Texas, MOL!!
