Lori’s note:

I wasn’t sure when I would be moving again when I first moved in to the apartment. So I stored (hide) boxes under the bed. I decided recently to reorganize my stuff under the bed. DAMMIT CATS.

The most magnificent scratch post for the most magnificent cat

Oh. The human did right with this one. The most magnificent scratching post.

I love that this allows me to go for a full stretch. I love “kkksshh” sound that it makes when I sink my claws into it. I love that it has so many different corners to scratch on.

Wut. You haven’t told me not to scratch it yet.

The bonus? It doubles as a bed! Afternoon naps are perfect on the throne. During the winter, I lay on top to for the delicious ray of warm sunlight. When it get’s too hot, The bottom serves as the perfect hiding spot.

Comfy chair!


(who’s this? More about my friend in upcoming post)

Recently, the scratching post is sadly starting to fray just a bit. But this just makes it better. The frilly bits are so vexing, so strangely delicious, and just so much fun. I have made it a mission to create as much frilly bits as possible

Feel my wrath!!

The human seems to hold a grudge against my prized possession. Often trimming away my hard earned frilly bits. No matter. A magnificent cat learns to put up with his humans misgivings.

It’s seen better days but I love it anyway

Hanabi seems to share my affection for the scratching post. Curse that spoiled brat. Always stealing my spots.

UGH HANABI

GO AWAY. it is my turf.

What confuses me is the scratching post’s twin in the other human’s room. Everytime I try to claim that as my own, the other human spritzes me with water. Does she not know that my fur is not to be trifled with? Silly humans and their double standards.


 

Lori’s note: The cats are actually rather well-behaved. They only scratch what they are supposed to. I borrowed the chair from my roommate for a guest, and Kuma claimed the chair before I could train him. Oops.
After a whole year Kuma is still obsessed with this:

Thanksgiving Special: Pumpkin Pumpkin Pumpkin!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

This is Lori, Kuma and Hanabi are taking a break from blogging. Instead, they are taking the blissful food coma nap.

As a Thanksgiving special, I will be talking about a favorite/pantry staple for the me and the cats: canned pumpkin!

Kuma and Hanabi both get a bit constipated from time to time. I googled and saw pumpkin is a great way to add some extra fiber and moisture into their diet. Conveniently, my voracious kitties lap up pumpkin like it’s the best treat in the world.

Nom nom nom, my favorite!

Nom nom nom, my favorite!

Hanabi: hey hey, watcha eating?

Hanabi: hey hey, watcha eating?

Kuma: Omg move. My pumpkin

Kuma: Omg move. My pumpkin

It is my pumpkin now!

It is my pumpkin now!

I buy my cans in bulk from Amazon here:Farmers Market Organic Pumpkin, 15-oz. (Count of 12)

Remember, whatever you choose, opt for the pure pumpkin purees without any additives! I give my cats about 1 tablespoon a day. It definitely helps when they are having.. ahem… bowel movement issues (pictures of healthy looking cat poo as proof available upon request).

Human, write my blog for me... zzz

Hanabi Observation Diary #2 ~ the copycat

Hanabi has been vexing me. It has become almost unbearable.

Recently, she has made it her job to constantly invade my bubble.

The great Kuma was there first! hmph.

The great Kuma was there first! hmph.

The human, ugh, the biased biased human is always on her side. Because of that, lowly Hanabi is no longer scared of me. I hisses at her. She barely moves a foot away.

Hanabi not scared of my hiss.

Hanabi not scared of my hiss.

Worse. She now copies my movement to mock me.

Wait is she copying me?

Wait is she copying me?

She is definitely copying me.

She is definitely copying me.

No matter. Kuma the magnificent has more important things to worry about.

No matter. Kuma the magnificent has more important things to worry about.

Whatever. But no, seriously. Stop it Hana!

Whatever. But no, seriously. Stop it Hana!

Seriously, Hanabi?? Grrr... rr..zzz... wetfood.. mm...zzzz

Seriously, Hanabi?? Grrr… rr..zzz… wetfood.. mm…zzzz

Is there an end to my sufferings?


Lori’s note:

Yes yes, Kuma hurt his back. I’m not sure how it happened. But no worries, it’s healed now. Post about Kuma’s cone of shame coming soon!
