Happy Independence Day to my American Furriends!

Hiya everyone,

I’m making progress with my human: only 3 months passed since I last posted!

I hope you are doing well. I wanted to wish you all, as well as your humans’, a Happy Fourth of July! Stay safe inside but make sure the humans share treats with you =^.^=

I Am a Dinosaur Now. Roarrrrr!

Hiya everyone!

Texas, a Parisian Cat in America

(These are toys from Christmas that I haven’t been able to post about yet)

My human says she is sorry she has been so busy she could not help me with my blog (again) (she sounds like what humans call a broken record). She says she’s slept only 2 hours last night (humans are nuts). So?

Today is a special day. Today is my birthday and I turn 10! Kitshka told me I was a Senior now. Hmpft. Then, by email, my human told me the vet in NY had said I was a Senior when I turned 6. HMPFT.

Anyway, the good news is that rumor is my human is coming back for good in about a month (how many kibbles does that make?), so paws crossed. I’ll organize a big pawty when she’s back so you can all learn to know who I am again!

In the meantime, the male human bought me some special wet food that I really like.

That was good! Can you tell what I like most? You can have the leftovers. No wait, Kitshka and Milou already took care of them. Sorry!

Happy New Year 2016 + Resolutions for My Human

Happy New Year my Furriends!

May 2016 bring you health, kibbles and wet food aplenty, and loving humans!

What do we expect 2016 will be like at my place?

Well, there will be more sleeping…

…more of me waiting for my human…

…everyone trusting Kitshka with the car key… er, not sure this is the greatest idea, human!

Speaking of the human, we expect to have to try once again to keep her here…

…I know Kitshka, it’s kind of boring to have to do it every time.

Which brings me to my resolutions for my human:

  1. Come back to the state named after me: that’s where I am, plus it’s warmer and it’s friendlier, and that’s also where we are!
  2. Make me and my blog your priority
  3. Give us more treats
  4. Buy me more catnip toys…

Okay, I’ll stop here because I’m a nice, reasonable kitty.

My furriends, I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, and a great New Year! I’ll make my human help me with my bloggie and visiting you more next year! Now, if you’ll excuse us, we all need to nap now because my human is coming home tonight!

Cats in Washington, DC: A Nice Kitty around Eastern Market

Here is a nice kitty that my human met in the streets of Washington, DC, in the Eastern Market district. The district is rather residential, with houses with nice gardens.

My human reports:

The kitty was sitting on the sidewalk, just looking around. She had a collar and seemed to be familiar with the practice of monitoring what was going on in the street. I thought I would try to pet her, of course, when I saw a man walking a dog on his way to the cat. The dog started barking at the kitty that quickly got behind the bars of a garden, and hissed at the dog from behind the bars, where the dog couldn’t reach her.

Smart kitty.

When the dog was gone, the kitty responded to my calling her. She came out of the garden, and since I squatted down to be able to pet her, she jumped on my lap, settled down, and started to purr.

I won’t comment on that. I could do that too human, if you were here with me.

I had to leave for I was awaited, but this kitty seemed to know that a kitty’s purring would be much appreciated!

We’re very good at at, aren’t we? Now come back home, human.

New Year, New Meow

Not new me human, it’s still little old me, but a new meow because a new name and design for my blog!

Finally, human!

New Blog Design

I had announced this a while back. My human I finally decided on a name, and the design has been slightly changed, but there might be more design changes (that is if my human decides to work on it before another six months pass…).

What do you think?

I have also updated my Facebook page with the new name:

Promote Your Page Too

If you don’t already follow me… well you’re missing on plenty of cat stuff, so you should definitely make it a priority for 2016 to follow all my social media accounts.

I have also changed my Twitter handle. If you were already following me, you don’t need to do anything. If you weren’t, well, you need to follow me:


I’m also on Instagram:

Instagram

And on Pinterest:

If I am not already following you on any of these social thingies, feel free to let me know and I will gladly follow you back!

Last but not least, my human also updated my About page and the one for my fur family. Last time she updated them was 2012! I think the humans would call this a Christmas miracle!

Now, I just need her to come back home.

Humans On & Off – Currently MIA

Hiya my Furriends,

Texas looking up | Texas, a Cat in Austin

How are you doing?

It seems like what I had initially considered a joke – a bi-monthly update of my bloggie-, has become a reality.

My human is still in the place called Washington, DC and although she has come to visit several times, she has always left afterwards.

Kitshka and I have tried to keep her stuff to prevent her from leaving.

But when time came for Milou to help us, he fell asleep on the job!

Worse, my human has seen other cats. As you know, she visited Crumbs & Whiskers, the cat cafe in Washington, DC, but she has also visited the one in Austin the last time she came! While we were staying at home!!

Even worse, she is again living with a dog. More on this soon.

I don’t know what went wrong with how I trained her, but she’ll have to go through a “My cat Texas is my first priority” boot camp when she comes home.

Last but not least, she won’t be home for Christmas, only the New Year. Which means we’ll have to wait for our presents! The nerve after all she’s done!

If you have tips on how to rein in my human’s rebelliousness, please don’t hesitate to post them in the comments.

Other than that, how have you all been doing?

Purrs,

A Visit to Washington, DC’s Cat Cafe “Crumbs & Whiskers”

My human, not content with spending those days away from me, has chosen to go to the new DC cat cafe for her birthday yesterday.

The good part though is that she could report to me on the cat cafe.

Overall, my human really liked the cafe. There are two floors and about 20 cats going about their business, letting clients pet them – or not. They are also all for adoption, so the cats in the cafe, hopefully for them, will change as they get adopted. You just have to book the time when you want to come online, and then come, have some coffee or tea and be a slave nice to those kitties.

The cafe seems to be successful as it was packed at 9 am on Saturday. She said the humans who worked there were very nice too and obviously love cats.

I think it’s a great idea to help cats and humans know each other better and to get some homeless kitties a home and a better chance for adoption as the humans can freely play with them.

If you think about it, these kitties have dozens of servants all the time. I wonder if one of them would be a better typist than my human…?

What do you think about cat cafes? Have you visited one before?

Outrageous News About My Human Update: She’s Gone Again!

Outrageous News About My Human Update: She’s Gone Again!

She’s off to DC again. She abandoned us!

Well, okay, we’re with the male human and his lap is more comfortable than my human’s lap, but this is still not right!

She said it’s just for a few months… what does that mean? Now we’re back to Skype again. Hmpft.

The male human seems not to like DC furry much. Well me neither! I don’t like whatever is taking my human from me. I’m hissing at DC! Wait what? There’s now a cat cafe in DC?!?!! Is that why she left? (No, says the human)

And my human is getting a back of disrespect. Because today is also my Gotcha Day! Pfft.
