Mondays Are For Memories: My Monchhichi

Mondays Are For Memories: My Monchhichi

For those of you whose humans are not too young, your humans might have had a Monchhichi (in French, we pronounced it Monkeykey) monkey doll when they were kids.

My human had one and since she wasn’t playing with it anymore because, she said, she was already an adult when I adopted her, she gave it to me. It seems strange to me that she would stop playing with it because it’s a fun toy and I loved it.

Did you or your human have a Monchhichi?

Mondays Are For Memories: My Tent

When I was still living alone with my human near Paris, one day she brought back a super cool tent from the pet store.

I played and played in it, outside of it…

…alone or with my mousie!

I loved it to bits.

When we moved to America, I thought my human had thrown it away or it had been lost during the move.

But no! And my human resurrected it recently, when we moved to the state named after me!

I just love it still!

[Note from the human: this tent was given as a gift by my pet store, although I had not even bought Iams food. It is not very solid – in fact, Texas and now Kitshka, destroyed it many times, but Texas loves it so much that I keep on fixing it as I can. And to think I would probably never have bought it because I would have thought it to be not of such good quality!]

Chicken, Shrimp, and Nip

Thank you all so very much for coming to Milou’s pawty on Monday! Milou was very touched to see you all at his purrthday. I hope you had a good time, for we sure did!

The humans came back home with some more gifts for Milou: a nip mousie, that was not super successful so far (of course, Milou prefers my magic carrot!), and a wand toy with birdie and peacock feathers (my human wasn’t able to get any picture for this one).

As mentioned before, Milou has a special diet and it is extremely rare that the humans would give him anything else for fear it would cause him health problems. But for his purrthday, he was treated with one of my Almo Nature wet food of chicken and shrimps that he devoured in less than 2 minutes… and he didn’t leave any crumb behind. Kitshka checked.

And then Milou went back to his favorite activity:

In other news, have you heard that a cat cafe is opening in Paris, France? My human and I are very excited about it, as you can guess!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside (Outside The Box, Inside The Box: Think About It! It’s A Box!)

Many of you already know that tomorrow is Milou’s purrthday.
Turns out that he already had his birthday gift. Well, let me tell you a (human) story.

When we moved from New York to Texas, the male human was sure that they would forget our water fountain if they didn’t pack it with everything else. But my (the female) human argued that we kitties’d rather keep our fountain until the end – right – and that they could not possibly miss the only thing that would be left in the house before they leave – wrong. My human messed up and realized when we arrived in our new house that the fountain had been left behind. So we went back to drinking in a bowl for a while.

Milou, who especially needs to drink but never does, seems to have found a new passion for drinking water here. Don’t worry, he’s not drinking more than normal, but he is drinking, period (in NY the humans had to add water to his food because he rarely ever drank from either the fountain, or the water bowl).

To keep a long story short – well kinda – Milou (and Kitshka and I) got a new water fountain for his purrthday. And now you expect to see a picture of the fountain.

Well no, for what is more important than the fountain? Exactly! The box it came in! Want to come and join us? We are having the biggest fun!

Could you guess that my human took pictures while lying on the floor? That was so easy to play with her too! Here are some photobombing pics!

Mondays Are For Memories: My First Cat Tree

Mondays Are For Memories: My First Cat Tree

Do you remember your first cat tree? I do!

It was all small (I mean for an adult cat, which I wasn’t at the time) and I loved it! It had a little cave, scratch posts and a huge circle I could use to travel around the tree.

Let me show you.

When I was teeny tiny, I could play inside the circle on top and try to catch the pompom! And yes, those were my toys at the time!

Did you have a tiny tree once?

Tunnel Envy

Tunnel Envy

My tunnel is super cool and super fun to play with, in, around! I haven’t used it to teleport yet but K and I had lots of fun chasing each over through it.

Needless to say that everyone here, except the humans – Thank Ceiling Cat! – wants to play with it!

Here are the usual suspects, waiting for their turn.

Of course, you’ve seen Kitshka already. Look at Milou.

If only he would stop hissing at me all the time, we could play together!

Have a great, playful Sunday, everyone!

Kishka Friday: I Love My Texas’ New Tunnel

So, as you know, Texas celebrated his 7th purrthday last week. One of his gifts was a super cool tunnel!

I have been having lots of fun with it. I LOVE it!

I wonder if I could use the lights to teleport Quill and Greyson here…
