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?

Blog Changes, Videos, And Prime Boxes

Just a quick post today to let you know that you might see changes pop up on my bloggie in the weeks to come as we make changes in order for my blog to be more attractive and feline-friendly (okay also furry friend and human-friendly).

For example, I have asked my human to add a page in the menu dedicated to videos. You can find all my vids up there in the menu (tab “videos”), or by clicking here. We still have some of Grouik’s videos (which are not on my YouTube account) to add, but I wanted to let you all know about it.

I also want to thank you all for your compliments on me wearing a cowboy hat =^.^=
Since my human still doesn’t want to tell me why she photoshopped me with a cowboy hat, I decided to make mine a brand new prime box and by doing so, to make my feelings (about not knowing) known to my human. What do you think? Do you think she’ll understand?

Someone Is Enjoying Her Sunday

Someone Is Enjoying Her Sunday


I have no more information to give you regarding yesterday’s post. Something is going on but for my human, mum’s the word! I don’t know what my human is doing/planning (does she even know?!). As soon as I know more about what’s going on, I promise to tell you!

Meanwhile, we all hope your Sunday is as enjoyable as Kitshka’s!

Still Time for VBP + Bath Time (Before Spring!)

I must apologize (again) for my human: I was unable to post a VBP post the past week and only my furriend Savannah posted one here. Thank you, Savannah.

As a reminder (VBP), you can still post your VBP post until tonight for this week and enter the link to your post via Savannah’s post by clicking on the bluey badge.

Between her “work” and her “classes,” my human monopolized (VBP) the computer and ignored our longing (VBP) for blogging and visiting our furriends. Hmpf.

But fear not my furriends, tomorrow there will be a new VBP post AND I will also post the links to the past two weeks’ pawticipants =^.^=

Meanwhile, Kitshka and I are getting ready for Spring, preparing our fur as necessary. Except Kitshka is more interested in playing… (Notice the laser eyes to the human ;-)

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Are you resolute enough with your human’s resolutions?

Are you resolute (VBP) enough with your human’s resolutions?

Just yesterday, I was commenting on Sparkle’s excellent (as always, may I add) post on her resolutions for her human: I had planned this present post for yesterday but… guess what? Yesterday’s post was supposed to be posted the day before yesterday but the day before yesterday, I posted nothing because my human claimed to have hurt herself while doing the house cleaning (how worse an excuse can we get from humans, really?!).

So if I have, for myself, one resolution for 2013, that would be to be more resolute in having my human stick to her resolutions. We have to keep an iron paw on this stuff, because you know, humans can’t really stick to their resolutions.

Note that this resolution for me is really forced on me because of my human. We kitties don’t need no education, er, resolution. Whatever. We are purrfect. On this, again, I salute Sparkle for reminding this to the humans.

So without further ado (VBP), here are my resolutions for my human:

  1. Wake up earlier to feed Kitshka: she won’t bother me because she’s hungry AND that will give you more time to work on my blog
  2. Organize, plan ahead and schedule… and stick to it! In order to help you, human, I have offered you – okay unearthed (VBP) from your library – a book that will help you:
  3. In order to remind you what’s really important, put a sticker on the cover of the book, like this:
  4. Click if you can't see the sticker

  5. Never run out of Greenies again – EVER.

Well, I think that’s a good start. I don’t want to ask too much because, you know, humans have their limits (and these limits are quite… limited).

Do you think I am asking too much? Are you asking more or less of your human?

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks:
=^.^= to our humans, when they deserve it
=^.^= to the humans who produce the Greenies
=^.^= to our furriends for visiting our bloggies and for writing bloggies, too

It is also a time when humans give thanks (that’s when we have to be careful because they tend to give extra cuddles and kisses).

And of course, it is a time to relax with our family…

…and to enjoy a lavish (VBP) meal!

From our family to yours: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

We’re back and we missed you!

Hiya furriends!

Another 1+ week without being able to blog or read your bloggies… I know my human was trying her best, but since she’s not a kitty, her best just wasn’t enough. Sigh. Sorry.

I have many awards to acknowledge and share, and many furriends to thank. I will be doing this in the days to come, probably one at a time.

In the meantime, here are some warming (I hope!) pictures for those who are in cold areas or (still :-/) without electricity (one of my humans’ friends in CT just got his electricity and Internet back and we know some still haven’t).

[My human is saying that it is stupid since they can’t see the pics if they don’t have electricity. Duh! I know, human! But I’m sending warm thoughts and purrs!]

After this very pointless, human interruption, here are the pics. Yeah, I didn’t looked pleased on the pics because Kitshka and I were having the bestest of naps and my human woke us up with her awwwwwwwws! Do humans and interrupting kitties go together, you think?

Warm purrs to y’all!

Hiya furriends!

Thank you all for your support yesterday! I’m glad to announce that my human was terrified at the idea of my purring strike – and also wanted to keep some of her Christmas paper for Christmas, how strange it may seem! – so we won!

I am back to blogging today (one day before the lastest limit). We didn’t get the extra treats and tuna juice though (the human wasn’t too pleased with the strike threat per se) but we’ll find a way.

We will go back to visiting your bloggies starting today. Yeah!

In the meantime, as proof of goodwill from everyone, the humans decided to build (yet) another shelving thingie to accommodate (Vocab Building Project VBP) more of my human’s books and let Kitshka and I watch supervise.

As you can see, we got everything under control. We were there to help them measure stuff.

We were there to support the humans.

What are you waiting for?
Start the job! We have blogging stuff to do!

Not too bad, human. Keep on keeping on.

Kitshka got a little distracted along the way, but that’s okay, she’s still young.

Tomorrow, I’ll start showing you some of the cool stuff I was so lucky to win! Have a great day my furriends!

Getting your human’s attention: when too much is too much

Remember a couple of days ago when I explained how to get your human’s attention when your human was reading in bed? Well, it looks like I got a little too much attention. She decided she wanted some snuggling time instead of reading!

Seriously, what’s with the snuggles and kisses?! I just need to play and get some tuna!

Human! What are all the Ladycats reading my blog going to think now?! I’m a grown Mancat for Ceiling Cat sake!
