Feral Friday—Food or Prey?

Hola kitties! Welcome to this edition of Feral Friday where I prove just how feral I still am. TW sez I eat like a feral cat. Can you believe that? It's not like I scarf down my food like there's no tomorrow. Just the opposite. I eat slowly … very slowly. So why is she saying this?

Here's to the Next 10 Years

Hola kitties! Today is our 10th Blogoversary. Break out the champagne! Cue the confetti! Caviar for everybuddy! What? Nobody bought me presents?

Art & All That Jazz

Hola kitties! Another week has ended and another weekend begins. Today is National Coloring Day. My art today isn't a coloring page since I did one last month. I hope to have a new one on my Facebook page sometime today whenever TW lends me her time and opposable thumbs.

Patriots Day—18 Years Later

Hola kitties! Has it been 18 years already—nine since I first posted these first-hand accounts—since the senseless act of terror on September 11, 2001? An event that happened before most of us kitties were born is so important that we have to keep the memory of that day. This post is to honor all those who gave all. This is something humans—especially American humans—need to remember. I concentrate on the World Trae Center but we can't forget those who lost their lives at the Pentagon and aboard Flight 83 who crashed in Shanksville, PA.  We decided not to make this post image heavy cos it's the words that should stand out.

Patriots Day—18 Years Later

18 years and names are still being added to the wall of fallen firefighters. 22 more firefighters have died from 9/11-related illnesses this year. 18 years and the remains of two more humans who perished were identified within the past two months. 18 years ago 60,000 people were ferried to safety from lower Manhattan including my Pop to our town. 18 years and the hell is still very real to those who witnessed the events of that day and those first responders who are sick. 18 years but we remember the first responders who are fighting for their lives today and every day.

All In the Family

Hola kitties! Isn't that a fun post title? If you think I'm gonna write about my fur family from da hood, I'm sorry cos you be wrong. Since this is Music Monday, if you think I'm going to share the music of artists who are related, you be wrong again.

Feral Friday—Joining In

Hola kitties! What a week it's been. Pop has been on staycation. Someone has been attacking him. I blame it on the dog. Don't ax. I was upset he was blaming me and I frew up Wednesday. We didn't really have to worry about Dorian coming to visit. The peeps mostly had to worry about what was—or more aptly wasn't—in my litter box. It was a mostly uneventful week for The Cat, which was good.

Wednesday Wisdom

Hola kitties! Monday was No Labor Day. TW started the day doing three loads of laundry. I thought she did enough labor. I decided to step up to make sure the insanity stopped. I'm always happy to help with the chores around the condo.

Labor? No Comprendo. (No Labor Day)

Hola kitties! At first I decided to give TW the day off. Then I realized even if I reposted our Labor Day post from 2014 which I did, we're have to redo the images so I put her to work. She had to work late into the evening since we only discovered this after dinner. I blame her cos she frittered away the entire day rather than copy and paste the post. She didn't change the last image though I instructed her to.

Labor? No Comprendo. (Happy No Labor Day)

Feral Friday—Bloopers Galore

Hola kitties! It's TW's fave post of the month where I get to show her recent photo fails and bloopers. It's a rare month that we don't have any new bloopers but this isn't one of those months. HAH! Did I scare you? That's why I have the stink eye. No image of mine should be a blooper. I also have fill-in answers and some good art which I will draw while you wait.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2019

Hola kitties! It's a happy/sad day for the Cat Blogosphere. It's Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Sad cos we remember the cats who came before and happy because we remember the cats who came before. We remember the good times and the laughs and love they brought into our homes. TW has been thinking a lot about cats past. She's sad that she doesn't remember the dates they ran off to the Rainbow Bridge but happy that she has this day to remember them.

Hola kitties! Do you know what today is? It's Music Monday but it's also Women's Equality Day. I'm a woman cat but I consider myself not equal to but better than humans of any gender. I am kitteh, hear me roar! What kind of music should DJ CK play this week?

Feral Friday: It's All About the Crop

Hola kittties. No, the title isn't referring to those crop tops young humans wear that show things we cats don't wish to see.  At least if TW wore one, I wouldn't want to see it. Hope you enjoyed my last post. Strange things happen around here for sure. Stranger things happen but are cropped out of our lives and our fotos. Today's Flashback Friday Foto pic certainly illustrates the need to crop the fotos TW takes.

Cleanup in the Cat Tree Aisle

Hola kitties. No, The Cat didn't make a mess. Wonder why there are never any pics when the peeps make a mess. There just never are. Sure there's a lot of HBO words thrown around not to mention towels and the like but the flashy box never comes out. I was traumatized to say the least. Lemme set the stage.

Everybody's Got Something to Hide (Except Me & My Root Beer)

Hola kitties! DJ CK here with you. Bet your wondering why I'm drinking a beer on the job. A root beer, that is, as opposed to one of Hank's Bacon Beers. The peeps haven't drank soda in years but when they did they drank birch beer. In fact you might remember the Great Birch Beer Caper. (TW tried to play with the original post and mucked it all up.) Fact: this can of root beer contains 45 grams of sugar which is equal to 11 tsps and none of the sassafras root that originally gave root beer it's flavor.

Finally Feral Friday

Hola kitties! It's that time of the week again; time to break out your feral streak whatever that is for you. I can get feral by attacking the peeps or a wand toy or feather. Looks like Mr. Summer is returning this weekend with temps and heat indices over 90ºF which is hot for the northeast. TW says it's feeling hot out there right now. I love the ac.

A Few Blasts From the Past

Hola kitties! I thought since Monday's post was so long and wordy, I'd do something simple today so I picked a few fotos; a few blasts from the past. Next month is my 10-year blogoversary after all. I hope you like 'em. TW and Pop have been keeping me laughing lately with their senile banter and petty squabbles. One was particularly funny having to do with Pop knocking stuff outta the pantry and TW misinterpreting exactly what he dropped. I'll leave it to your imaginations.

Supermarket Sweep #MusicMonday

Hola kitties! Anyone remember the old tv game show Supermarket Sweep? TW says it was on a hunnert years ago when she was a kid. Gramma watched it every afternoon. Anyhoo, TW just found out her favorite local supermarket is closing at the beginning of October. One of the reasons is prolly cos another big supermarket with the initials WF just moved into town but is nowhere near our area. She's bummed for a couple of reasons. I'm bummed for other reasons entirely.

Feral Friday Treats & Toys

Hola kitties! We’ve been having some severe thunderstorms in the hood. TW had the nerve to storm shame me on her FB page! She—the one who needs a thunder shirt. The truth is that I remembered something I needed to do in my office UTB. That’s why she saw me scamper under the bed. I admit the timing was bad since it was seconds after a huge flash of lightning and crash of thunder. I’m a feral kitty and I’m not scared of anything. End of story but not this post.

Who's Not A What?

Hola kitties! I  found this draft from 2013 that never ran. I put some bells and whistles on it and here it is. It's not filler.

TW says that although I look like a cat, she can prove I'm not a cat. She claims I don't ACT like a cat. Say what? What kind of double talk is that. I'm gonna let her cite 5 reasons she thinks that and my rebuttals. OK, TW, how IS a cat supposed to act?

The Cat Days of Summer #MusicMonday

Hola kitties! Did you know about the Cat Days of Summer? Does anyone really know when these dog cat days are? Some say they are the 40 days beginning July 3 and ending August 11, which coincide with the dawn rising of Sirius, the Dog Star. TW always taught me they run from the day before her birthday to Gramma's birthday—July 12 to August 20—which around here are the hottest days of the summer. Why am I telling you all this?

Aptly Named Feral Friday

Hola kitties! Pop says I'm a  feral [bleep] only he said an HBO word. The other day Pop was working at home. I jumped on the chair next to him. He started to say "You're the best cat in the world" only instead of world he yelled OUCH! cos I'd bitten him. He wasn't even touching me. That's how I roll. Yeah, I guess I do still harbor a feral streak which is why I call my Friday posts Feral Friday.

Shocking Truths I Recently Learned

Hola kitties! Last week one of the fill-ins axed what I recently learned. Well, since I know everything, I had to search for an answer to fill in. Then TW dug up that car which neither of us remembered I had so that became my answer. It was a learning experience for both of us. Before that answer fell into my lap, I researched the subject extensively and this is what I discovered. Shocking, I know.

Hanging on the Telephone #4M

Holla kitties! I've been sitting here forever waiting for a special call. Who? You may ax. I'm not saying. I'm just saying that this phone hasn't rung all day except all those robo calls. The phone company is gonna have to do a better job of blocking those calls. We have Nomorobo and they just keep coming. Those spoofers gonna get bit for this cos I'm running outta patience.

Feral Friday—Another TW Fail

Hola kitties! It's TW's fave post of the month where I get to show her recent photo fails and bloopers. Before then, let me catch you up on some condo news. Pop found his glasses that he lost a few weeks back. I believed him all along and I was right and TW was wrong. A store with the initials H.D. decided, no, they weren't going to hook up our washer/dryer even though the contract said they would. The fight continues. Lastly, the moldy ducks are back! This time we're gonna have an inspector come to make sure the ducks aren't in the walls also. We're all getting sick from the smell. Last night I was even coughing.

Do they make thunder shirts for humans?

Hola kitties! I’d read that The Woman was afraid of thunderstorms in the journals of the cats that came before me. I just didn’t know how afraid till the other night. We had the mother of all storms. I wonder what size thunder shirt to order for her.

Who's Your Idol?

Hola kitties! Do you have any idols? I'll bet I'm one of your idols. I am an American Idol. Have you ever watched that tv show? Me neither but I was a judge in 2013. I know who my idols are and I'll share some of them with you later in this post. I'll also share a pic from when I was a judge so stick around.

Contemplating on Feral Friday

Hola kitties! We've made it to Friday! Whoa! Did we have some bad t-storms last night! I'll be writing more about them next week. I was fine but I do have a funny story to relay. I have some other business to attend to before then. I'm a cat and I don't like to get political but I can't figure out a way to answer today's fill-ins any other way. I'll try to keep it short.

On the Beach

 … or not! Hola kitties! It's been hotter than a hound's tooth around here. You'd think we were on a tropical island but where are the niptinis or iced nip tea? *fans self* We have central air which provide some relief for the humans. I'm wearing a fur coat so I can still feel the heat and humidity. This weekend the heat index will be 105-110 degrees F (about 40-43C). You can fry an egg on the sidewalk or on TW's head since she just came in from outside. Why did she go out in this heat and with an air quality alert? you may ax.

Another Feral Friday Birthday Wish

Living and Laughing With 2 Senile Seniors

Independent Cat #MusicMonday

Hola kitties! DJ CK, the most popular feline DJ around is gonna spin some Music Monday tunes. This week's prompt comes from John of Driller's Place. Y'all know John if you participate in the Wordless Wednesday hop over at Comedy Central.

Independent Cat #MusicMonday

He suggested "songs that celebrate your independence, personal or national." My personal independence day is January 29 cos that's the day I was freed from the shelter in 2006. The PetFinder pic that got me freed is in the header. It's a very special day for both my peeps and me. You can read the complete story of my independence. You've heard the cliché of "who saved who" but I saved Pop's life which is why we're so close.

Feral Friday Fancy Free & Easy Flashback

Hola kitties! I gotta open by wishing Aunt Pauline a Happy Birthday! This is also the start of Pop's staycation. It's gonna be a great week. I bet it's gonna be a hunnert degrees and they will stay home with me all week. We'll order in some Chinese food. I'll get treats whenever I ax. In short, The Cat will be in heaven.

Summertime #4M

Hola kitties! It's July and it's finally beginning to feel like summer in the northeast. Time to chillax with some iced nip tea and listen to some music. Whoever wrote that song "Summertime" wasn't a cat and didn't know my peeps. MOL! Let's examine the lyrics.

Summertime #4M

"Summertime, and the living is easy" except if you're a homeless cat looking for a shady place to chill and some water or a human working in a shelter in the midst of kitten season. No, it's not easy. "Fish are jumping"—I ain't never seen any of those jumping fish but I'd like to. "Your daddy is rich"—no he's not—and "your momma's good looking"—they couldn't be more wrong. They obviously never saw TW, even though she's not technically my momma.

Feral Friday Fails & Fill-ins

Hola kitties! It's Friday! I'm gonna flashback a couple of weeks and tell you about our washer and dryer delivery. Early on Friday morning—too early for TW—our maintenance guy came up to disconnect the old machines. I should mention that our machines are in a small closet. Not that long after he left, the delivery dudes came with the new machines. From my spot in my office, I heard the peeps arguing with them.

Cat World Domination Day 2019

Cats Run the World

Hola kitties! It's one of my favorite days of the entire year! This, the 24th day of June, was declared Cat World Domination Day by Sparkle Cat on her 10th birthday in 2012, several years before she went to the Rainbow Bridge. Summer is now carrying on the tradition. I've been celebrating by posting since 2013. This might be the most important holiday of the year although I dominate every day. Believe me, I don't take this holiday lightly even if today's post is in cartoon form.

Hola kitties! Welcome Summer Solstice. I'm glad you could finally join us. It's been raining all week so I hope to see the summer sun at some point. I'm a treat whether it be summer, spring, winter or fall. The peeps should be honored to be bitten by me. Don't you think so?

Fotos That are a Joy to Behold

Hola kitties. This has been a tough week for TW. What are the chances that the same time our washer/dryer is down that the laundry room in our building is also down? Apparently it's a hunnert percent cos that's what's happening. She's behind on her housework and trying to make time to apply for Medicare but there's so many other pressing things. Poor poor pitiful TW. But what about The Cat? My blog doesn't type itself!

Feral Friday: Hey Biter Biter

Hola kitties! Wanna know where this title came from? TW was watching the Yankees/Indians game earlier this week and the sign behind home plate read "Hey Biter Biter" rather than "Hey Batter Batter." It was an advert for hot dogs. She looked at Pop and said that would be a perfect title for the post. Of course, I had no say in it. Considering this is Feral Friday it does make sense.

She's Eating … Now She's Not

Hola kitties! I told you about this new chef the peeps have. They're getting dinner from her rather than ordering Chinese. Well, the new chef is killing me. Check out the fun items on this week's menu: Shell Fish Stew (with clams, mussels, shrimp, crab and BACON!), Crispy Sweet & Spicy Chicken (can be made not spicy), Lamb Souvlaki Meatballs, Vegetable Lasagna Roll Ups and Cajun Spiced Wild Tilapia. With a lineup like that, what did the peeps order? The Lasagna Roll Ups and a salad. Srsly peeps? No meat or fish for the most precious member of the family? I have to eat cat food?

And Then This Happened …

Hola kitties! You would not believe what happened over the weekend! Since it's been warmer, I've been able to get whiffies and I've been spending some time on the window sill daydreaming. In the early morning, there are sun puddles to lay in. I might add they're the only sun puddles we get. I also have an update on my injured paw at the close of the post.

Feral Friday: Limping into the Weekend

Hola kitties! I'm not feeling too feral right now. This little ghetto kitteh has been hurting. Getting old is a contact sport. The peeps and Dr. D. think Arthur-itis has been attacking my right front paw. I've been limping and standing with that paw raised. I sent pics to Dr. D. who said there was no swelling which was a good sign. Cos I've been hurting, I haven't been eating much which worries TW more than the paw.

Wednesday Weirdness: Ode to the Founder of Psychedelic Music

Hola kitties! DJ CK here. I was wondering what to do for my Music Monday freebie. Then the answer dropped into my lap. Two musicians who may not have been household names—but should have been—passed away late last week. When we tried to create a playlist, YouTube wouldn't let us save any songs so Music Monday became Music Wednesday. Our playlist is a lot different than the songs you're used to hearing from me but as the title suggests really weird. Weird as in different.

When Life Gives Me Lemons

Hola kitties! So this stinks. In case you were expecting a Music Monday post—and we were planning one—it's moot. We can't share or make a playlist on YouTube cos Google is down and TW left writing the post till the last minute. We have to think up something sneakier. BTW, I had a terrible weekend. Thanks for axing.

Fails on Feral Friday

Hola kitties! What a week it's been. Seems like we've been under a severe thunderstorm/tornado watch/warning all week. What's up with that? We're in the Northeast. This isn't tornado alley. TW is down to her last nerve cos she doesn't like t-storms and she's had a fear of tornadoes since she was knee-high to a grasshopper. Pop kept me safe by locking me in the bathroom with him the other night when two actually touched down in our state.

Checking Out Smiling Paws Pets’ Expandable Soft-Sided Pet Carrier #sponsored

Hola kitties! Do you travel with your peeps? Other than the stabby place, I mean. Would you want to? One thing that stops humans from taking their furry family members with them on their vacations is they don't have the right carrier aka PTU (prisoner transport unit). After what happened in Florida where all the pets traveling in the cargo section died, you want your pet traveling under your seat.

Straight to Hell

Hola kitties! You all know Nellie Bellie was The Cat from Hell but did you know she made me an honorary cat from hell? TW was not amused. She doesn’t like the devil in me even though she’s always called the markings around my nose “devil horns.” She'd prefer a sweet cat such as Nicky was.

Feral Friday: Nipped Up in the Condo

Hola kitties! Welcome to the Memorial Day edition of Feral Friday! We've been feeling lazy and a bit nipped up and uninspired lately which is why some of you may have missed my wit and wisdom on Wednesday. Prolly not though. So what have I been up to? There are some hints in this post.
