Living with Carnivores

A vegetarian human's adventure with cats

The Monster under the Bed is Now IN the Bed!

The human was trying to make the bed. <<Silly human!>> Pepe had other ideas.  He slid across the surface and put his head under a fold of sheets and blankets. Over onto his back he went with legs kicking. The human tried tickling him, which led to flailing paws and fake biting attempts.  Do you see the little kitty face peering out at the tricksy human? Aren’t those toes cute? Eventually the Monster tired and lay still, although he kept one paw out just in case.

His Majesty

The human was trying to make the bed. Caesar wasn’t budging.  So His Majesty was (sort of) made into the bed. He posed in a regal fashion.  At least she didn’t mess with his paws.

Mer-Kat Goes Incognito

<<The human wasn’t supposed to notice.>><<But she did, and that ruined all the fun of playing incognito.>><<Worse still, the human approached with her clicky-clacky camera in hand.>><<She never once asked if it was okay to take even a single picture, let alone a whole bunch of them.  Nor did she ask if she could post them on the blog. That’s the kind of life we live here with that two-legged who thinks she’s in charge. >><<Then she wonders why I smirk and scowl.>>

New Architectural Wonders

Interestingly, the human’s own bedding has been getting the architectural treatment of late. Although the human is very diligent about making up her bed as soon as she gets out of it in the morning, a few hours later when she walks upstairs, she’s been finding this kind of structure. It would appear that one of the kitties is making a kitty cave out of the human’s own blankets.  As you can see, this kitty cave is adjacent to another of the kitty caves made from layers of fleece in one of the kitty beds. There’s always something new and interesting going on in this house.

Changing Architectural Styles

In the beginning, when the blanket sculptor struck, he or she left layers of blankets sticking straight up in the air.  The architectural style seems to be evolving, as more recently the pattern has shifted to little domed structures like those shown here.  Do you suppose this represents a different exit strategy from the blanket pile or is it that there is a second architect now at work creating structures?

You aren’t Seriously Going to Bother Me, are You?

This is Fireball, the kitty architect, in one of his little caves made by rearranging fleece blankets…

The Architect Himself

This is Fireball peeking out from under the fleece blankets in one of the kitty beds.  He digs at the corner of a blanket until he’s folded back the fabric, then he slips underneath.You can see how he creates a little kitty cave to sleep in. When he leaves, the blankets stay up in that interesting position.

Double Decker

It’s that time of the month when boxes arrive at the house with litter, crunchies, and special kitty treats. Of course, the best part of any package is the box itself and the crackly paper inside it.  The other night, the human folded down the flaps on two boxes and then put the smaller one inside the larger and set them on the floor to see what would happen. Predictably, the Merry Pepster hopped inside the combo boxes.  At first, all that could be seen was his tail waiving in the air.   Then Pepe flipped on his back as the human got up close and personal with the camera.  Finally, he sat nicely in the boxes…at which point the bored human wandered away with her dreaded camera and its flash.
