Kitshka in the House

Hiya everyone!

Kitshka | Texas, a Parisian Cat in America

I am very excited to be taking over Texas’ blog. I want to continue his legacy and study humans–what a task!–only probably the blog is going to be a little more girlie than it used to be. I am after all a pawsome ladycat and I want to share my secrets for pawsomeness with my furriends!

So what happened the past few months? A LOT! Enough to ruffle my fluffiness!

Kitshka | Texas, a Parisian Cat in America

The female human and I still miss Texas furry much. It was very hard to learn to live without him. Then the humans had to let Milou go, and for a little while I was the only kitty in the house. Nobody to give me a bath! I tried to teach the humans by showing them a little on their bare skin – ew! – but they’re not as smart as we are and they didn’t get it that they had to do it to me too!

Then the humans adopted Whiskey (more in his introduction post soon). I am not sure whether the female human thought I’d think this was Texas or she thought Whiskey was close enough to Texas, but I am not stupid! After all, I am a cat! This was not Texas!

Nevertheless, Whiskey is rather nice (except when he is trying to play with my beautiful fluffy tail!) and a good companion.

Then, it becomes a bit hazy in my mind. That’s when Texas’ expertise as a humanologist would be helpful. I remember good vibes mixed with bad vibes for a while. The female human talked about a roller coaster. What is that? I know how to make a coaster roll, but a roller coaster? Anyway, Texas had taught me that humans kissed because they sometimes try to do that to us, and I got really good at avoiding the female human when she tried to do that to me! It’s ew! But between humans it’s the same as cat headbutts apparently. So good vibes.

What I do not like at all is when humans talk very loudly and it happened too… and I swear I saw them hiss! Something close!

Now we live in a new place, which I like very much. It’s smaller than the house where we used to live, and I feel more comfortable with that size.

We is me, Whiskey, and the female human. The male human is not here. I liked the male human. I liked to headbutt him on the chin when he had what the humans call a beard (really, can’t they call it hair?!). I like the female human too, and I’ve been sharing my pawsome energy with her a lot because she needs some purr therapy badly! She’s very nice with us and she gives us liquid treats. But it’s not the male human. I don’t understand why the male human is not here anymore though. The other day, the female human came back from behind the big door and she smelled like him. I rubbed my beautiful fur on her so I could keep some of the smell with me. Do you think the male human has become invisible or something? The female human is extra nice though… but she feels the need to try and grab me and hold me close between her arms. They call that a hug. Also I let her kiss me on the head sometimes because it feels like it makes her happier. Also she plays the cat-o-pole with me!

I don’t know how Texas was doing, because I don’t understand humans. And I don’t think Whiskey has a clue either!

What have you all been up to? I look forward to visiting all your bloggies and making new furriends!

P.S.: Can someone tell me how to get the female human to change the color of this blog to something more girlie like… pink?

Thanks to everyone for your Thanksgiving wishes! We hope you had a good one too.

Did you get some turkey? We had just a little (no really) and it was enough to make us snooze ;-)

If you have the impression that the size of our pics is strange and not really the same for all pics, it’s not an impression. That’s because the female human cropped them so that you would not see too much of our excellent work of turning the black couch white. I think she has given up on the couch being black!

Hiya everyone!

Before I tell you what beautiful me is doing, I want to remind you that we have a giveaway for 2 Shelter Cat Dolls from Dream Pillow. Here they are:

Dream Pillow

Follow the link to yesterday’s post (by clicking on the image above) to discover what you have to do.

This is not a giveaway for catnip sticks, kitties (it seems some of you misunderstood. Easy on nip, kitties!). It is a giveaway for these 2 shelter cat dolls.

So, what have you been up to lately?

Today is a crappy day where we live.

Milou is at the vet again for, er, constipation issues. Nothing serious but I bet he is a bit tired of going to the vet regularly because of this (and surprisingly, we don’t get any reward cards for free treats for going to the vet regularly like the humans have in their stores! I think that is not fair!).

It’s been raining, and there is a LOT of wind outside, and it’s in the 30s (that’s a temperature of around 4C for our European furriends), which means nothing to see on TV that is much interesting. So we’ve been busy doing nothing Texas and I.

I found an abandoned blankie that is quite comfy on the couch. I made it mine, since it had been abandoned. Now if only the human could stop taking pictures. That’s the problem with rainy days: not only is there nothing on Bird TV, but the humans can’t go out to take pictures so guess who is being photographed?

What are your favorite activities when the weather is that bad and the humans can’t stop bothering you?

Kitshka hiding | Texas, a cat in Austin

You might have wondered what we’ve been up to?

Kitshka hiding | Texas, a cat in Austin

No, we were not hiding! But the female human, who is our typist, had less interesting other things to do and wanted a small break. That’s too bad that she planned her posts on her blog, but not ours Texas’ if you ask me.

But where is Texas, I hear you think? He’s here, only he is not meowing to his human right now. Because of the bloggie thingie. Plus he hasn’t visited the Cat Scout blog since he registered. Talk to the paw, he gestured when the female human offered to post something here finally!

So I volunteered.

The human promised to help us post and visit more, but I don’t know if we can trust her. What do you think?

Oh I almost forgot! On Thursday, we will have a furry nice review of a furry nice product that is also helping shelter kitties. And there will be a giveaway! I hope to see you then =^.^=

Kitshka Friday: The Scoop Pillow

Kitshka Friday: The Scoop Pillow

The other day, I found a new pillow on the couch. It had a sticker on it that said “litter scoop”). It was a scoop pillow!

I have to say it was not exactly comfortable, but just when I was starting to get used to it, it disappeared and I found it back near… our litter box! The sticker had disappeared though! How strange is that?!

Yes, this is our – Texas’ and mine – fur on the couch. We are working day and night to keep it not black. We work faster than the humans trying to clean the couch.

Are your humans using weird pillows too? And are they constantly taking your fur out of their your stuff?

Kitshka Friday: Helping the Human to Be Productive… With a Song or Two

Kitshka Friday: Helping the Human to Be Productive… With a Song or Two

Us kitties know that to be productive, we need to take lots of naps between the productivity sessions.

This is Texas’ human I was dealing with below (sometimes, Texas has to nap so I agree to take over). See, I settle behind her computer screen, next to the window, so I can both snoopervize her and watch Bird TV.

But humans like Texas’ human rarely agree to take naps (silly humans!). So I have to invite her to take a break. My super cuteness helps, as you are about to see.

Human! It's time for a break!

Human! It’s time for a break!

Ah! She's not listening! Let me rock the boat a little...

Ah! She’s not listening! Let me rock the boat a little…

Rock The Boat screen, Work The Middle...

Stroke it for me…

Human: Kitshka,
I’d like to know where you got the notion…
To rock the boat, don’t rock the boat baby,
Rock the boat, don’t tip the boat screen over…

Oh! That's a different song! You're singing!

Oh! That’s a different song! You’re singing!

Gotcha! You took a break!

Gotcha! You took a break!

Will you take a break with us on Friday?

Kitshka Friday: More Of Us On Instagram!

Did you know that I was on Instagram?

Kitshka-Instagram

Well, technically, it’s Texas’ Instagram account, but I make apparitions. So does Milou and well, of course Texas!

Kitshka-Instagram

Texas showed the back of disrespect to his human because she was posting pics of us on her account. He wanted his own account. And he got it! But now we have to show the human that we can get more followers than her on Texas’ Instagram account! Will you follow us if you have an account? Chances are we will follow back (except if you are posting weird pictures, like some humans do… OMC!)

Texas’ name is @Texas_le_cat

Many pictures will be new (not posted on the blog!). So we are waiting to see you!
