2020: The Year of Perfect Vision

Hola kitties! Happy New Year! As the last hours of 2019 draw to a close, are you ready for 2020? Pop calls it the Year of Perfect Vision. Get it? I'd like to get that trending. Have you wrapped up any loose ends and decided on goals or revolutions for this coming year. When you're perfect like me, you don't make revolutions. There's only one year left in this decade so we have an entire year to prepare for the next one. You can google that. I hope we'll all be around to see it and they'll be no stupid computer viruses targeting it.

Feral Friday: Après Christmas

Hola kitties! TW and Pop went out last Sunday and ran into Santa doing a practice ride in his sleigh! His elf gave them candy canes. Further down the block, there were carolers and they gave the peeps a special show! Wasn’t that exciting? It wasn't for The Cat who sat home alone again after being alone all afternoon while they went grocery shopping.

Merry Christmas!

Hola kitties! Merry Christmas and all that jazz. Was Santa Cat good to you last night? Did he bring you lots of treats and prezzies? Did you get any cool boxes? I'm gonna make your day merrier and brighter cos I'm gonna share my 2019 Christmas cards.

Merry Christmas!

Feral Friday: Santa's Posse

Hola kitties! Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice and next Wednesday is the big day! Are you expecting anything fun under your Christmas tree? My Jewish furrends get to open their first Chanukah gift on Sunday. I didn't ax for anything this year cos I know we have a big assessment on the condo coming due soon but I know the peeps will treat me well. Are you ready to meet Santa's posse?

Feral Friday: Finding Furbie

Hola kitties! It's time for the weekend roundup. The peeps sprung Fraser and he's here but still nekkid. He even had an ankle bracelet on which is how I knew he was in the pokey. This post isn't about Fraser, however, it's about something much more important. FURBIE WENT MISSING!

Feral Friday: Comfy & Cozy

Hola kitties! Are you keeping warm? I am and so is my Pop. For his birthday, instead of giving him what he really wanted, TW gave him a warm comforter and I gave him socks. Now that the cold has arrived, he's thankful for both. In fact, he says the comforter is so toasty, he's having a hard time getting out of bed to go to work. He was on vacay most of this week so that wasn't a problem.

Wednesday Wisdom: Calm Cat

Hola kitties! What's the good word? The good word here is calm. Pop is on Staycation this week and even though a lot has been going on, this kitteh has stayed very calm. I've remembered my mantra and have been practicing cat yoga. It's all good. Meanwhile the peeps have been going crazypants decorating and creating havoc. It's always an adventure when they do anything.

Feral Friday: Seasonal Bloopers

Hola kitties! Did you get your fair share of turkey or did you have to help yourself? OMC! What a fiasco Thanksgiving was in the condo! Anything that could go wrong in the kitchen did. TW bought cheapo aluminum foil and when Pop took the unstuffings out of the oven, the foil ripped. Stuffings were all over the oven and everywhere else. As if that wasn't enough, when he dumped it on the table, he pushed TW's full cup of tea over. Think about it. Right now we're only a few seconds away from this month's Pet Photo Fails where I share those pics that embarrass TW cos they're never my fault or are they?

My Musical Christmas List

Hola kitties! Have you began to think about what you want for Christmas? Soon the heavy-set human with the red suit and white beard will be breaking into your house to leave all sorts of toys under your tree. If you're like me, you'll tie him up and ransack his bag and take what you want. HAH! Even if you don't celebrate Christmas like DJ CK does, I hope you'll get gifts for whatever holiday you celebrate.

Feral Friday: Cheap Centerpiece

Hola kitties! We're getting close to Turkey Day but you'd never know it in the condo. The Halloween decor is still on display. The table still doesn't have the Turkey Day tablecloth. That said, last Saturday the peeps traipsed off to a Thanksgiving pawty. Of course I was left at home to starve. They played some weird game at the pawty which TW won. What a wonderful prize it was! Was it an all-expenses-paid vacay to some warm, sunny island?

Monday Music: Looking Forward & Back

Hola kitties! Are you ready for DJ CK to play a few amazing tunes? I like participating in the Monday Music blog hop but you know what this kitteh isn't quite down with? Those freebie weeks when we get to choose our own prompts. There are just so many songs and themes that float through my stunning head. After trying to settle on a theme all week, last Thursday a few songs presented themselves that were new to me although they shouldn't be.

Feral Friday: Nip and Cigarettes

Hola kitties! Tomorrow is Tuxedo Cat Day! We finally have a day to celebrate myself and other tuxies! Seems like there's a couple of ginger cat days and an entire month dedicated to black cats so it's only right that we have been represented and honored at long last.

Feral Friday: Nip and Cigarettes

People have axed me if I've ever played with my Halloween toys. OK, no one has axed me. Heh heh. But I'll tell you anyhoo. At first I didn't give them a sniff cos they smelled of nip mixed with cigarette stink. I'm glad neither of my peeps smoke.

Medicine Cat

Hola kitties! Back when I was a Twitter dj, we used to have themes for our pawties. Many of the themes were hard to fill an hour with songs fitting the theme. One week the theme was "Cowboys and Indians." I knew which side I was on but I was worried I wouldn't have enough music to fill an hour. The town I live was once the territory of the Hackensack and Tappan, of the Turtle Clan, or Unami, a branch of the Lenni Lenape.

Feral Friday: Drugged & Dragged to the Vet

Hola kitties! What a fun day I had yesterday! I can hardly speak of the indignities endured by your stunning feral furrend—ME. I can hardly speak at all as a matter of fact. I was handled roughly and unfairly. I was drugged and dragged to the vet even though I've been fine. Even my asthma has been behaving itself.

Dona Nobis Pacem (Change Your Climate)

Hola Kitties! We are 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 Change Your Climate. If you've been listening to Greta Thunberg, you've heard some powerful truths about our environment; our climate.

Feral Friday With Special Guest Bloopers

Hola kitties! Guess what? It's appropriate that I'll be posting art today since it's International Artists Day! Art is such an important part of human and feline culture that it hurts me to see declining numbers of posters on the Caturday Art Blog Hop. I know there are many talented artists in our community.

Feral Friday With Special Guest Bloopers

It's also the last Friday of the month so here's some sooper bloopers. There were so many this month too. I'll start from the earliest to the most recent.

Feral Friday—Tock-tober Edition

Hola kitties! Happy Tock-tober! Years ago Angel Derby declared Tock-tober to be celebrated on this, his birthday month. Derby's gone to the Bridge but we join his brofur Ducky and the Cat Blogosphere in celebrating Tock-tober in his honor by showing our tocks. I didn’t really know Angel Derby but that doesn't mean I won't help him celebrate.

Feral Friday: I Deaded a Burd!

Hola kitties. How was your week? Mine was exciting and I'll tell you why. I know those Trout Towne Tabbies ain't gonna like seeing a burd but it's a dead burd so it should be OK with them. It's caca-dropping days are over. I wonder if I should consume it.

A Toy To Soothe the Feral Cat

Hola kitties! Happy Feral Friday! It's time for our weekly get-together. Do you miss me? TW is trying to get used to not being at the computer all day. I've been eating better. Unfortunately I've still had to do some posing. In other breaking news, the peeps both got shot for the flu and those noisy wall duck cleaners were here again. They brought a YUGE sucky machine and some smaller ones too. We're keeping our paws crossed that the moldy ducks went to the Bridge this time for good.

Remember Me Bloopers

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 new bloopers but this isn't one of those months. HAH! Did I scare you? 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.

The Littlest Victims #RememberMeThursday

Hola kitties! Are you aware that today is Remember Me Thursday®? Of course you are. The Helen Woodward Foundation created this campaign (and is sponsoring this post) that means the world to this little ghetto kitteh who was once a shelter cat. Remember Me Thursday® is a global awareness campaign uniting individuals and pet adoption organizations around the world as an unstoppable, integrated voice for orphan pets to live in forever homes. Each year over 2.7 million pets die in shelters without a forever home which gives this kitteh leaky eyes. Just 30% of pets in households in the United States are rescue pets. Sad.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
