Another Feral Friday Birthday Wish

Hola kitties! I have to extend another birthday wish today. I'm beginning to feel like Phil Rizzuto. I've heard during every broadcast, he used to send birthday wishes to lots of people. Maybe I should start requesting that readers send in their birthdays with their number requests. Anyhoo …

Living and Laughing With 2 Senile Seniors

Hola kitties! You wouldn't believe what the "oldsters" did this week! On Monday TW pulled a rock! What a silly goose. She can't stop laughing about it. HAH! Last week it was Pop's turn. I hope I never get #senile.

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.

TW, These are all Wrong! #ChocolateWaferDay

Hola kitties! Do you know what special day it is today? I didn't think so! Whatchoo say? No it's not Independence Day. That's tomorrow. It's Chocolate Wafer Day! Yeah! There's a reason I point this out and a reason I'm laughing at the peeps. Can you guess what it is? I'll bet the post title gives it away.

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.

Pop, Bunhead is Home!

Hola kitties! I'm gonna tell you a dirty little secret we have around here. We talk about the neighbors. HAH! Who doesn't? Am I right? What do you do when you talk about the neighbors but you don't know their names?

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.

Feral Friday—I'm Always a Treat

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!

Supernatural #4M

Hola kitties! We had some weird stuff going on in the condo Friday night. Being DJ CK it reminded me of some songs that I wanted to share on Music Monday. This is another freebie week where I pick the prompt. Let me set the stage.

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.

And Then This Happened …

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.

It's All Relative

Hola kitties! Contrary to the post title this Music Monday post isn't gonna be song titles that include the words mom, dad, aunt and uncle. This week is a freebie meaning I can share whatever songs I darn well feel like. Truth be told, TW does most of the choosing cos I'm not an audiophile so she better have chosen a good theme that I approve of.

Feral Friday Fill-ins, Flashbacks, Flair

Hola kitties! We're doing a three-part post today so pour yourself a cuppa joe and relax.  If you'll notice the background color on the lead graphic is orange. I'm honoring Angel Crockett from Lone Star Cats who met with a horrible accident this past week. His brofur Travis axed that we wear orange to pay tribute. We don't post on Saturday and I don't wear clothes so this image color will have to do.

Straw Hat Dare

Hola kitties! Nope, the title isn't a typo. When TW told me today was Straw Hat Day which used to be a big deal in the Cat Blogosphere and presented me with a straw hat, I replied "Is it also national 'Oh My G-d, Look My Hand is Bleeding Day'?" She backed off very rapidly as she should have.

Table Manners

Hola kitties! So we were gonna participate in this week's Music Monday but we already posted our songs about body parts so that ship has sailed far, far away. Of course I could think of hunnerts of other songs to use or ways to spin the theme so there just may be a song at the end of this short post.

Feral Friday: Fresh Nip & Other Delights

Hola kitties! How was your week? Did you achieve a good ratio between napping and playtime? I didn't. All naps and no play make kitty a grumpy cat. If you ax TW, she gave me "loads of playtime" but "I didn't want to play." I just "stood there and looked at her." Fake news! I am a playing machine; a very playful kitteh.

I'm Frenzied But it's Not Friday

Hola kitties! Whoa! You bet I'm frenzied! I thought TW started this post days ago. It's 5:30 Tuesday and the Yankee game starts in one hour and there's thunderstorms on the way. I guess she won't be watching the game tonight cos we've got work to do. OK, get your herbal ice tea. Sheesh. Get ready, Woman, cos it's time to start moving your stubby fingers on the keyboard.

Feral Friday: Past, Present & Future

Saturday is the annual #Chilipawty and I'm spinning tunes again at 9pm Eastern time. This year's Chilipawty benefits Northeast Animal Rescue (@NARcats) in Philadelphia, PA. Come for the pawsome prizes, stay for the noms and music!

I Am Not a Skunk Review

Hola kitties! Last November I told you about a wonderful new book for young humans written by Miss Ellen of 15 and Meowing. Guess what? There's a follow-up!

I Am Not a Skunk Review

I Am Not a Skunk is the second children's book (ages 3-8) written by Ellen J. Pilch and published by Mirror Publishing. Ellen is staff and writer of one of our favorite blogs, 15 and Meowing, in which Emmy plays a starring role. The book is illustrated by Nicolas Peruzzo. This story is a fictionalized version of how Emmy found herself living in her forever castle with Ellen and family.

Feral Friday Fiesta of Fails

Hola kitties! I have the illiteration going today. It's time for another Pet Photo Fails. TW and a camera is a blooper waiting to happen. Blooper may be her middle name. I thought since we aren't doing reviews that TW and her flashy box would leave me alone. I guessed that would mean no new photos of me. At least that's what I thought.

Who You Calling Macaroni?

Hola kitties! Great post title, isn't it? NOT! As you can tell, after our serious post on Monday, this is more a fluff piece or a "wordless Wednesday." Let me set the stage. TW got the bright idea to stick a feather into the igloo and somehow or another she started calling it "Macaroni." What kind of name is that? Does it make sense to anybuddy? She found it so hysterical she had to take pictures. I think she finally waved buh-bye to the last of her marbles.

What You Need to Know About Separation Anxiety in Cats

Hola kitties. How many of you know a cat with separation anxiety? You all know one cos this little ghetto kitteh has it. Truth. I had a really bad case when I first moved in the condo. The peeps were convinced I'd been adopted once before and returned to the shelter or abandoned.

Festive Feral Friday: Easter Edition

Hola kitties! I'm a feral kitty. Did TW really think she was gonna get me to wear those bunny ears? Who does she think I am? Summer? I don't care if you got gray to match my furz. It doesn't; so no can do. I don't care that it's almost Easter neither. The Easter bunny doesn't bring toys and presents so I don't have to be good.

CK Poses; TW Goofs Off

Hola kitties! TW is still slacking off. Can you believe it? Maybe my teeth aren't sharp enough or—GASP!—she just doesn't care about me or this blog anymore. What kind of "life" can be more important to taking my dictation three times a week? Dunno if I can take this stress anymore so today I yakked all over TW's yak rug while she was eating her yogurt parfait. I tried again on the runners in the hall which certainly got her attention. At least the goof-off had an excuse not to do the post while she was cleaning the rug.

Music Monday With One Cool Cat

Hola kitties! It's Music Monday time again. It's been a hectic weekend what with the peeps shopping and not playing with The Cat. Pop is on staycation this week and I hope to get lots of Pop time.

Can you tell I'm talking guitars today? Actually the guitar in the image isn't the one I'm talking about but I'm allowed poetic license on this here blog. BTW, thanks for all the nice words about last week's Music Moves Me unusual rock and rap pairings selections.

Feral Friday Featuring The Cat

Hola kitties and welcome to Feral Friday where I'll be your host. Lots going on in the condo. We have fourth floor men peering in our fourth floor windows. Prolly Stunning Keisha fans dying to meet me. They're on some scaffolding making lots of noise. They've visited for the past two days. TW gets upset that they look in the window but she still changes her clothes in front of it. [Ed Note: I DO NOT!] Do so! I'm surprised they didn't jump down and run away screaming. HAH!

Cheap Chocolate

Hola kitties! I wanted to dictate a post about separation anxiety today but TW went and had a physical which took most of the day. Can you believe she let someone else take her bloods? I'll bet she didn't yell, curse and get mad at them like she yells at me. She said "let's do a quick post." Bully on her. So I guess we're doing a Semi Wordless Wednesday.

Who You Hangin' With?

Hola kitties! It's Music Monday. I've got some tunes for you although I'm sure you'd rather have tunas. HAH! I slay myself sometimes when I think these lines up. OK, TW first typed tunas rather than tunes. It wasn't a flying fish but I caught a little flying thing the other night and it tasted good. My post is about unusual pairings like cats and dogs; especially CK and dogs. Don't forget to hover over the images for my secret thoughts.

Hola kitties! I love the name Feral Friday. I can't believe I couldn't convince TW to use it sooner. Seriously, this is why I answered fill-in number three the way I did.

Hola kitties! They don't call me Stunning Keisha for nothing as today's post will prove—NOT that I need to prove anything about my stunningness. It's there for everyone to see 24/7/365. This post also proves that TW did, in fact, take some shots that are in focus. Do you like my new Foto Frenzy header?

They Call Me The Hyacinth Cat

Hola kitties! It's April 1st! April Fool's Day! For Music Monday this week I followed the prompt but turns out all the tunes I chose come from bands where one of the members worked in a record store so there's a second theme. How cool it must be to work in a record/music store.

March Pet Photo Fails & Bloopers

Hola kitties! It's time for another Pet Photo Fails. TW and a camera is a blooper waiting to happen. Blooper may be her middle name. She and her flashy box has, for the most part, left me alone this month. Mostly I just had to pose when we did reviews and we prolly won't be doing anymore of them. I guess that means no new photos of me.

Oh Canidae! #ChewyInfluencer

Hola kitties! Heh! I guess this title could be a bit misleading since the brand in question isn't a Canadian brand. As a matter of fact, they're from Texas and sourced from the American heartland. You can't get much more American than that. I just like paraphrasing song titles to fit my needs hence the title. Keisha's Café, an off-shoot of Chez Keisha, prides itself on selling local brands. See what I did there?

Guess What I Got!

Hola kitties! It's Monday but I'm not doing a Music Monday this week. I'll explain more about that later. I got a brand new and exciting toy, The Cat says sarcastically. When a kitty's staff notices kitty needs something new to play with, most go out and buy kitty a new toy. Something with nip in it or a wand toy that's way overpriced. Not The Woman. Listen to what she did.

Feral Friday: Back End Edition

Hola kitties! The title will have meaning when you look at both Flashback Foto Frenzy picks. Incredible how that happens when two compatible fotos come out from the randomizer. Speaking of incredible, can you believe that once again the peeps have given up eating meat twice a week for Lent? They do this to me every year cos giving up meat is easier for them then giving up chocolate. Once again, The Cat suffers for the peeps' sins. Literally.

Can I Haz Gravy? #ChewyInfluencer

Hola kitties! Do you like gravy? I like to lick my food dry and then maybe I'll eat the morsels. I found this cute gravy boat at, er, an antique show. Bet you didn't know I like antiquing. Perhaps I'll write about it someday. That's where I located my peeps. HAH! TW and Pop are antiques. They have so much old junk in the condo, they were thinking of getting a storage unit. I convinced them to throw it all out instead and saved them some $65 a month. I hinted that I could use $65 to spend on cat food.

Hola kitties! It's the middle of March. Join DJ CK for a big pawty honoring those born this month! Ernie, Summer, Leo, Neytiri, Scylla, Crockett and Pixie are some blogging kitties celebrating this month. In fact, today is Giulietta's birthday so Happy Birthday! To this kitteh, these are the famous birthdays this month but that's just my opinion. Every month at Nipclub we used to have a pawty for the anipals born that month.
