Catching Up With Keisha

MY ToP! All mine!
So many have axed about my Tower of Power so here's the poop. Uncle Vince came over with Aunt Marta and little monster they call Violet Tiffany. Pop wasn't home so TW axed him to put my ToP together even though she knew how much Pop wanted to do it. It took him about 15 minutes and there were no HBO words or anything. It went THAT smoothly. You can see Uncle Vince in the Nightmare video here. The peeps say Uncle Vince is an Angel cos then he set up our Wifi again. Aunt Marta's job through all of this was to keep Sticky Little Human occupied. Nonetheless SLH kept coming into the room I was in watching Uncle Vine on the computer. TW finally had to shut the door because whenever SLH would come in, I'd start hissing, growling and spitting. Heck, I even hissed at Uncle Vince and I've always liked him. Usually, I'll go in my office UTB when someone comes over, but Saturday, I refused to back down. It was bad enough that I couldn't come out of Pop's room. No way was I staying UTB all day.

TW said babies are like cats! Can you believe this?? I don't see it. So SLH played with all my toys and put them all in her mouth. So she can't speak the human's language and she has trouble holding onto things. That has nothing to do with cats and TW owes me an apology. Like I said, Pop wasn't home and TW was too busy shooting video to realize how my toys and tunnel were being abused. She did take my food away so SLH couldn't eat it this time.

I did shoot up to the Penthouse a few times but not long enough for TW to get the flashy box. Today I fell off the 3rd floor. Don't be alarmed, I grabbed onto the 2nd floor. My claws are sharp and I have no fear.

You, too, can purchase a Tower of Power just like mine at Petco. In fact, it's on sale right now. Click and ye shall find. MOL!

In other news, TW finally discovered why her photos were coming out so dark. She had the exposure set at -1 instead of 0. She pleaded innocence and as usual had no idea how she managed to muck it up. She found out that Photoshop has a magic little button to correct it. All she has to do is set the exposure to +1 and it will cancel out and lighten the photo. Hooray! But I bet all you Photoshop experts out there already knew that and are laughing at us. You can see the difference in the mug shot below. I have faith that she's still gonna find a way to take lousy pictures of this stunning cat.

This becomes THIS!


Moving right along, Willow of Devoted to Willow was kind enough to give me The Next Big Thing award. Even though I've posted about the award before, I thank her very much for her kindness. I also made a new furrend because of this award. I passed it on to Jessie Janie and she passed it to a sweet German cat named Janis Felidae. Janis and her huMum have a very cool blog called Catonauts, which IS the Next Big Thing. I think you'll like it. She's also on Twitter.


Play time! For a year and a half, all I've wanted to play with were the foam missiles. Now, I've been going through a smousy laser phase. I hadn't played with the laser in a long time but I'm having a great time with it now. My favorite place to play is the tunnel in the hall. I LOVE the location! It's so inconvenient for the peeps!  I run through the tunnel after the evil red dot. My one-track mind is stuck on smousy laser.  TW can't wait for me to start playing missiles again—heh heh—because the batteries in the laser cost green papers. She's found it's cheaper to just buy another smousy laser. I'm switching back to the foam missiles channel since I got the ToP. For some reason, TW finds this cartoon about the red dots highly amusing. You can click on it to biggify it. Hmm, you don't think SHE considers it the Laser of Power, do you?

  1. I like the SLH's name - Violet. That's my daughter's name too and she's also a SLH. Gonna be 1 soon. She got to terrorize our KKMM for only a little while, but she was still young then. My big daughter got the cool weapon I bet you would like - it's a bow and arrow that shoots big foam arrows!

  3. Zowie that Tower of Power is to die for. I asked M for one and she said "no". She mumbled something about downsizing sometime and where would we go with it. Dang! Consider yourself lucky CK - all I get are window perches!

  5. That Tower of Power is SO YOU. Better keep those claws sharpened though...once the missles start flying you might have to save yourself from an even bigger fall!

    Kudos to TW on the camera revelation. ...and yes, Photoshop can do some nice magic tricks, but it's always better to get it as close to right when shooting the photo.

    Hey...I LOVE your mug shot. Can you send me your biggest file of it? ...might come in handy someday. heh heh

  8. Paws up for finally getting that cat tree up! And I will tell you something: even though my human acts like she is some sort of know-it-all when it comes to camera and Photoshop stuff, there is still TONS she does not know about her camera! Like today she finally figured out how to change the display settings, because up until now, she could not figure out how to get the histogram she wanted so badly.

  13. That is some ToP you have there CK! Your post made us VERY glad there are no SLH in our immediate family!

  14. That is one awesome ToP! If we hadn't just gotten the manpeep to build us a cat tree, we would have to ask for one of those. The different levels look like they would be awesome for various lounging, observing, and pouncing needs.

  15. What an awesome ToP, CK!! How great that Uncle Vince put it together for you and you didn't have to wait for your Pop.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow, CK--now THIS is a post rich with entertaining material! The secret backstory of the SLH, the ToP, the picture enhancing nd topped off with the great cartoon. Now THIS, this is what my Human (in fact, all Humans) should be doing every day--devoting hours of thought and care to our blogs. At least your Mom does that sometimes.

    Congratulations on the award! Love the cartoon!

  20. That is a great tower!! We are glad you didn't fall all the way off! Keep those claws sharp so you can save yourself if you happen to fall again.

    Purrs,

  21. NICE tower!

    We were wondering what ToP stood for but didn't want to appear stoopid by asking. MOL!

    Enjoy!

    PURRS!

  22. Allie: Ooooh CK! Your ToP is PAWEsome! We have one - in the box now - and banished there until SOME human finished our floors (which might happen before I reach the ripe old age of, oh I don't know - 5 or 6....).

    Concats on being awarded the Next Big Thing TWICE! *squee!!*

  23. This was a very full and newsy post. All I can say is I am jealous of the ToP and remember to keep your claws sharpened at all times in readiness for any passing SLH! xx

  24. CK, that Tower of Power is da bomb! Keep those claws sharp, girlfriend ... they are real lifesavers, aren't they? :)

    Good job by TW with the camera. Hey, better late than never. And NOPW she can capture your true stunning-ness!

    Concats on your award!

  25. OMC! Momma is laughing right now, you always seems to make her my furriend. She says she just loves you! I would be hissing and spitting too!! How darn they assume you should spend all day under the bed! *high paws*

  29. Clearly, I am one lame BFGF...how I missed so many of your posts, I have no idea. I know I read them with Mom, but we forget to go back and comment once we get to the laptop. No excuses, please don't fire me as you BFGF!
