Who's That Knocking at my Door?

Hola kitties! It's 9 pm on Thursday night and I'm busting it trying to get this post started AND finished in time to publish it at midnight. I'm sorry if I haven't been a good visitor. It's the holidays and TW hasn't even been on the computer today. I've got some fill-ins and flashback fotos for your entertainment but don't know if I'll have time to do the art thing again.

Meet the New Cat in Town

Hola kitties!  TW is still whining and coughing all over the place. I think I should be wearing a surgical mask so I don't catch no germans. I should let HHGutt catch them for me. Pop says he still don't feel too great but he sounds a hunnert percent better than TW. This blog, however, is about The Cat so let's get serious.

Friday With Keisha's Back

Hola kitties! Blogging means never having to say you're sorry. I am sorry I've been awol. TW's strep infection has hit her hard. She's been unable to concentrate on writing, commenting or anything else; in fact, she hasn't been spending much time on the computer at all. After a week of antibiotics, she's still barking like a seal. Woman, pull yourself up by your bootstraps!

4 Pet Photo Fails to Make You Laugh

Hola kitties! Can you believe TW forgot last month's Pet Photo Fails? I can, since she's #senile. You're in luck cos it's the last Friday of November—in fact, the last day of November—and she remembered! The Pet Photo Fails blog hop has been hosted by Miss Cuddlywumps, Paisley and Webster of the Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles blog. Sadly, I have to do this one in tribute to Roby Sweet aka Sarah Andrews, the author of the blog. She passed away on November 5 from cancer at the young age of 49. Sarah left us way too soon and we'll miss reading Cuddlewumps Cat Chronicles. I will continue to post photo fails until the end of the year in her honor.

Good Things Come in Plain Packages (Too) #ChewyInfluencer

Hola kitties. As you know, we're very design conscience around here. Our blog was designed by Glogirly Designs—although it prolly needs a redesign to freshen it up—and TW does try her best to design images you will enjoy. I've been known to dabble in art too which I show off almost every Caturday. Believe me there's nothing about this cat that's plain.

CK's Thanksgiving in Fotos

Hola kitties! Hope you got plenty of turkey yesterday. Let's just say I got my share. Instead of doing a Foto Frenzy, I'm gonna take you through my Thanksgiving Day in fotos.

Bring on the Turkey! CK makes stuffing

Hola kitties and Happy Turkey Day! I'll bet many of your humans are spending the morning in the kitchen cooking. Many may have even started earlier in the week like my peeps. TW spent all day yesterday in the kitchen cooking and baking even though she's sick. Since I can't seem to find out when the Blogosphere shopping around the world days are, I figured I'd share my human families stuffing recipe at the end of this post. It doesn't look like much—OK, it looks like slop to me—but the peeps think it's better than turkey.

A Black Friday Gift Idea …

for the sticky little humans or cat lovers on your holiday list.


Hola kitties! Last week I gave you some hacks to help with designing your holiday cards. With that out of the way, you're now looking forward to Black Friday and starting your holiday shopping.  Recently I received a book in the mail that I think should be on everycat's list cos it was written by one of our own in the cat blogging world.

Looking Forward to Turkey Day

Hola kitties! I have Friday on my mind all week since I'm dictating this post to TW on a Monday. Of course, not the fill-ins but the rest of the post. Lately, I've been thinking about turkey. The peeps are getting closer to the $400 they need to spend to get a free one in the soopermarket. Thinking about it makes me happy—and hungry. The peeps are still eating leftover Halloween candy so I don't think Pop is ordering a 3-lb choco turkey this year but don't underestimate him.

5 Christmas Card Design Mistakes to Avoid

Hola kitties! It's almost the season to be jolly and I'm sure you're pestering your humans to make your Christmas card. Every year we receive some of the most creative cards from our kitty furrends. Most are better than any store-bought cards—not that there's anything wrong with store-bought cards. I thought I'd give you a few tips for designing irresistible cards. These tips will help you avoid the mistakes that TW has made in the past. Those design mavens can admire my pics since they know what I'm going to say. They can also feel free to correct me. *tries to sharpen claws* Darn nubs!

Look What They Done to My Claws, Ma

Hola kitties! The past few weeks have been a whirlwind for this kitteh and not entirely the good kind. Yesterday both TW and Pop were cavorting with Pinera and her ebony furrend. I hear-tell from my sources that those cats were rolling all over the peeps. Then there's the relentless teasing I've been getting cos the evil vet stole my claws right down to the quick.

Fill-ins and Flashbacks Featuring Bonus Embarrassing Foto

Hola kitties! TW frittered away the day into the evening so we're on deadline here. Can you believe we may or may not be expecting snow Monday? It depends on which forecast you listen to. I prefer the one that says rain to snow. Pop's gonna have his computer at home anyhoo so it doesn't matter to him.

G-d Save the Cat (I Mean it Man!)

Hola kitties! Saturday didn't quite go as planned. TW and Pop got up early—well Pop gets up early every day but not TW. They did me wrong. Very wrong.

G-d Save the Cat (I Mean it Man!)

I got up for breakfast around 4:15 a.m. Then when I woke up again at 7 a.m. TW was preparing a second breakfast for me. Score! Right? No it tasted funny and there was hard, bitter white specks in it. I tried to eat around the biggest piece. Then we both went back to bed.

Dona Nobis Pacem

Hola Kitties! We are once again participating in the annual BlogBlast 4 Peace. This is the 13th year for one of my favorite blogging events. I've been doing my part since 2011. Mimi Lenox, the founder, wanted to know what would happen if the entire blogosphere posted about world peace on the same day using the same title—Dona Nobis Pacem. It hasn't changed the world—yet—but it's provided some creative and wonderful images of peace. The theme this year is Words Are Powerful. I put together a few peace songs for you.

Mixing It Up on Feral Friday

Hola kitties! The Halloween tablecloth is finally still on the table, the candy has been bought and the Christmas lights have been lit. We're all ready for the jollies to begin with The Cat in the thick of it. The peeps bought a ton of candy since last year there were about 50 tricksters but this year there was only 10. Wonder if the witch on the door scared them As you know on Friday we combine three posts into one cos TW is too lazy to post every day. Bast knows we have enough content.

Halloween Nightmare 2018

Hola kitties and Happy Halloween! Pop had a Halloween nightmare the other night. I'm not saying we have ghosts around here but some ghost kitty vishusly attacked and then hissed and spit at him at around 3 a.m. As you can imagine, the room was quite dark so the ghost kitty was invisible but it's teeth were sharp. Surely you don't think it was me, do you?

CK's Dirty "Litter" Secret #ChewyInfluencer

Hola kitties! The press has been hounding me again. Seems that some pretty serious allegations have been leveled at me. I called a press conference to talk about cat litter but I bet they want to talk about my so-called dirty "litter" secret. I'm about to go into the Green Room. Why don't you come in and watch me keep them honest. I handle the press like a pro.

CK's Dirty "Litter" Secret #ChewyInfluencer


CK: I called this press conference to talk about Dr. Elsey’s Clean Tracks cat litter; a fragrance-free litter that's gentle on noses and paws but tough on odors. I'm gonna start by telling you a bit about Clean Tracks cat litter and why I like it. I'll take questions later.

DJCK Morphs into OMCK

Hola kitties! I always look for an opportunity to become DJCK and to share some tunes with you. Today thanks to my pawsome friend, Ann, at Zoolatry I have the opportunity to morph into OMCK with a brand new, shiny costume for those fancy clubs I work at. I'll have the premiere at the conclusion of this post. For the month of October, Zoolatry has been transformed into BOOlatry. Ann took orders last month and is trying to make some anipals Halloween wishes come true.

Hola kitties! Take TW. Please! Bada boom! A cat walks into a bar. Bada boom! Are you surprised to see me on a Sunday? Well this is gonna be short and sweet. Wait, I'm like Tina Turner. I don't do anything short and sweet. It will be short and stunning though. I wanted to show you a pic. Hmm, did I leave my iBone on the porch by the pumpkins?

EZ On Flashback Friday

Hola Kitties! Today is far from over. In fact, it's just beginning. I'm finding it difficult to get out of bed though. TW keeps me up past my bedtime every night. I can't stop playing on my new cat tree. I've really laid a guilt trip on the peeps that they waited so many years to build it for me. I'll have to get up soon so I can share some Flashback Friday Foto Frenzy fotos, the Friendly Fill-ins and perhaps some art. I also have a story about a little stray cat you'll want to read.

Sing Song

Hola kitties! Does your human sing songs to you? And they make up silly songs or hit songs with the words reworked? The reason I ax is that TW has some songs that she sings [badly] to me. It's a song that she used to sing to Nicky with different words. The song will explain the image below. Lemme sing it to you.

Gone Fishing With Castor & Pollux #ChewyInfluencer

Ahoy kitties! Bet you're wondering what made a landlubber such as myself take to the high seas. I'm trying to catch some salmon for dinner cos nothing tastes better than fresh wild-caught fish. I can't say the fish were biting as much as I was, I did catch a few. I didn't realize it would be such hard work. I've worked up an appetite and I missed my nap. Glad I bought along something to eat that doesn't need preparing.

Not Forward Facing Friday Flashbacks

Hola Kitties! Welcome to another cat blogging extravaganza! Welcome also to the return of the Flashback Friday Foto Frenzy. It's back by popular demand but most importantly it was requested by Aunt Pauline. She's almost through with chemo and looks forward to putting this adventure behind her. Speaking of looking forward, you'll notice the thing that ties our fotos together is I'm looking left in both of them. That's us—a left leaning family.

CK Gets Silly; TW Gets Bit

Hola kitties! I've got a short post for you today even though TW just uploaded around 60 images from the flashy box. I posed like a good kitty with a bunch of inanimate objects that TW said are for review posts. Hmmm, I'm still waiting on my treats for all my hard work. I noticed there's a whole post full of photo fails for that monthly blog hop. Her fault; not mine.

More Moldy Ducks and Fresh Fill-Ins.

Hola kitties! This blog is about news. News about a stunning cat. I post everything you'd ever want to know about ME and what goes on in my condo. F'instance, remember when we just had the moldy ducks cleaned out of our walls? Well the odor returned after the smell of the sanitizer wore off. The peeps were beside themselves wondering what the next step should be. Pop hoped they wouldn't have to open the wall up to evict those ducks

3 Times a Genius

Hola kitties! Aren't you happy to have a furrend who's not only stunning but is a genius too? Yep! Once again I heard TW utter those immortal words—this cat is a genius. This time I made sure she remembered why she said it since she's been known to forget.

3 Times a Genius

TW first uttered the genius word in 2013. Then Facebook confirmed I was a genius too. Lemme tell you what TW realized this time.

Mail Call!

Hola kitties! I had another post planned but I had to postpone it so I can tell you about a funny thing that happened Sunday in the condo. It must have been funny cos TW was crying and wheezing she was laughing so hard. I hope this isn't one of those "you had to be there" type stories.

This Month's 5 Best Pet Photo Fails

Hola kitties! Wanna see some of TW's greatest Photo Fails this month or perhaps all time? You're in luck cos it's the last Friday of September so it's time for the Pet Photo Fails blog hop hosted by Miss Cuddlywumps, Paisley and Webster of the Cuddlywumps Cat Chronicles blog. Then as the coup de grace I'll have my Friendly Fill-In answers at the end. This is gonna be a great post with great words and not so great pics so fasten those seat belts but don't adjust your glasses. Better still take them off cos the photos will look better that way. I'm embarrassed to even publish these on this blog.

Feed Your Inner Tiny Tiger #ChewyInfluencer

Hola kitties! Do you ever feel like a tiger? Let's talk about this tiny tiger and noms. When I first moved here, I ate everything put in front of me. The cheapo supermarket brands I was served would make your fur stand on end. More importantly I wasn't served enough wet food and soon found myself dehydrated.

Feed Your Inner Tiny Tiger #ChewyInfluencer

Now I get premium cat food but the older I get; the more finicky I get. That's why TW said I needed my own restaurant so I founded Chez Keisha. TW was at the point where she was wondering if I should continue to review food. What good is having a restaurant if I can't taste new brands to serve to my diners?

This Cat is Moving on Up

Hola kitties. It's still rainy and damp where we live but at leave we didn't get run over by Florence. She left many anipals homeless and even destroyed shelters and factory farms killing hunnerts of gentle creatures.

This Cat is Moving on Up

I'm moving on up but it's not quite a deluxe apartment in the sky. I finally started exploring the top perches of the Cat Tree That Took Forever to Get Built. After being a ground-dweller for many years, I've discovered I can still jump. I can hide up here cos TW doesn't think to look up when searching for me. If she does find me up here, the flashy box is often employed usually to disastrous results. You'll see them next Friday during Pet Photo Fails.

Are They Gone Yet?

Hola kitties! It's finally in my rearview mirror. You don't know what? The air duck cleaning. They came Wednesday and evicted the ducks from our walls. They sanitized the vents where the ducks were squatting cos the ducks had done all kinds of nasties while they were living there. What a racket those vacuums made and the quacking was about four hunnert decibels.

Never Forgotten Always Remembered 9.11.01

Hola kitties! A few weeks ago while the peeps were walking to the supermarket, they came upon a couple of people talking in the senior building parking lot. They were discussing their memories of watching the horror of September 11, 2001 on tv from their homes. Seventeen years later, it's still on everyone's mind in this area. No one has forgotten and how can they?

Never Forgotten Always Remembered 9.11.01

Pop looked at TW and said "I was there. I watched it in person; not on tv." Yes, Pop was close enough that he was accepted into the 9/11 Health Program in which they monitor the health of first responders and the "survivors" who lived and worked downtown. TW watched from the window of her office in midtown as the towers collapsed and will forever remember the screams of anguish of her coworkers with friends and loved ones working in the World Trade Center. It wasn't until she saw the first tower fall that she realized Pop might be in danger.

Hola kitties! What's up? I usually don't post Sunday but since I won't see you till Tuesday, I decided to put something up today. I'm sure the five of you who visit were getting tired of viewing the Friday post. I'm showing some Polaroid Love. Do you remember the old One Steps?

Pleased 2 Meet U. Keisha is My Name

Hola kitties! You'd think since we're barely posting that TW would have all sorts of ideas of what to post about. But noooooo. The best she could come up with on a short (HAH!) one week notice was a foto frenzy. She thought it would appease me if she mentioned that many of my furrends have been posting flashbacks and bloopers lately. I'm not sure I'm buying cos those furrends post almost every day.

Bloopers. Bloopers. Bloopers.

Hola kitties! Are you ready for me to embarrass TW? Yes, it's time for me to show how bad a photographer she is. Bloopers. Bloopers. Bloopers. I'm participating in the Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop. A blog hop is when a bunch of bloggers post about the same subject and we link them together so you, the reader, can easily find and be able to laugh at everyone's photo fails.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day—Autumn

On this Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2018, we are remembering a very sweet calico cat. Autumn was Gramma's cat. She was a real love bug who became TW's and Pop's when Gramma passed away. To know her was to love her (just like me!) although Nicky didn't think so as you'll read below. She purred up a storm, even at the vets or when the groomer came to trim her claws. Here's Autumn's story.

Phil 'N the Blanks

Phil 'N the Blanks was the name of a pop band in the 80s. I think they're still around playing weddings. They weren't a favorite but their name was. I thought it would be a clever title for the Friendly Fill-in post.

Let's catch you up on what's been happening first. There's been a lot of strangers coming and going here lately. Too many. The Fios guy and Uncle Vince were here last week. After Uncle Vince left, I'd had enough and started coughing. TW thought my asthma was attacking me but after a minute or two, I frew up some food that I'd just eaten. I was just upset.

The Tale of the Possessed Washing Machine

It was half past midnight on a dismal summer night. Pop was in bed sound asleep. I was napping on the pink gym and TW was reading the newspaper. Suddenly I was awoken by an annoying beeping noise. TW heard it too. She thought it was coming from the hall but, no, it wasn’t.

Music Monday—It's All About the Cats

Hola kitties! It's been a hot week in our neck of the woods. OK, we don't live in the woods per se but it's still been hot. Pop worked at home Tuesday and Wednesday cos the heat index was close to a hunnert. We also had some nasty thunderstorms. I liked the music theme this week so decided to roll with it and share some tunes. I know what you're thinking—I only post like once a week and this isn't a real post. I'm a cat and I have catitude. My blog and some people like listening to some tunes.
