Living with Carnivores

A vegetarian human's adventure with cats

Category: Other animals

Squashed

First Caesar was laying in one of the kitty beds next to the human, who was reading. Next, Fireball hopped in and curled up beside the Big Guy.  Not long after, the Merkitty joined the party. Since there wasn’t much room left, she flopped across both Tiger Boys.  No one seemed to complain, but there wasn’t much room left in the kitty bed.

Just Hanging Around

This is Corky hanging out under a chair on the cute cat hammock.  You’d have to be looking for him to see him unless you were paying particular attention to the floor.  Presumably that’s what makes both hammocks so popular with the cats:  the opportunity to watch the human and other cats without being bothered in return.

Who Invited You?

Caesar and Mac were having a cuddle.  The silly human showed up and started taking pictures.  The Big Guy leaned back to see what the human was doing.  Not surprisingly, he gave the human “that face” and kept his paws on the Merkitty.

Clean Feet

This is Fireball washing his paws.They get so dirty running around on rugs all day.  <<If you don’t keep your paws in pristine shape, you might not be able to race up and down the stairs like a comet in the sky.  Besides, your brother might make fun of you.>>

Do You Think this is All An Excuse to Run Away and Play with Dogs?

<<It wouldn’t be the first time that our human disappeared for a day or two and came back smelling like a stinkin’ dog.  Maybe she’s off cheating on us. Sure hope she doesn’t bring one of those wretched creatures home with her. She does that, you know. Any poor abandoned creature will do.>>

Alien Invaders

See that little tail? It belongs to a cute chipmunk who likes to hang out in the bird feeder eating seeds. Said chipmunk is darned lucky that there are 2 panes of glass between him/her and the cat who is watching this alien invader.  He or she runs up and down the screens, which happen to be on the outside of the windows in this house, coming and going from the feeder. Sometimes the chipmunk and a little red squirrel who does the same thing (although never at the same time) will go sprinting up or down the screen right in front of one of the cats.  You can just bet that Pepe is on the job monitoring the yard and alerting the human to this insulting behavior.  If Pepe could get through the glass panes and the screen, he’d make fast work of that little creature. How disappointing that the human doesn’t help him do so.

City Kitties’ Cousin Pops in

<<While we wait for the bad human to get her act together out in the doghouse, here’s Juno (aka Junipurr), our cousin.  She’s chilling out and waiting for her human to give her some love.  Come to think of it, so are we. Awww.>>

Taylor & Ing Kitties – Part VII

Caesar’s dedication to grooming the other kitties knows no bound (or boundaries)…and the Merkitty is just fine with that, thank you very much!

Tuxedos Meet New Kitty Carrier

The human found a nice soft-sided kitty carrier the other day.  She brought it home and decided to open up both ends so the kitties could explore.  As luck would have it, the two tuxedos were in the kitchen at the time and they decided to check it out. First Pepe stuck his head into each end and had a sniff.  He actually followed some pen caps he and Mac had been chasing to the edge of the carrier and cuffed them around.  Next Mac went in the proper “door” and walked through the carrier and out the “window.”  For some reason, that got Pepe all jazzed up.  He returned to the carrier and looked out the window. Meanwhile, Mac was checking out the side pocket and a second larger “window.” He wisely understood that squeezing out the “window” would be a tight fit. (So much for this being a “big” carrier.) He backed out and hunkered down beside the carrier and peered at Mac, who was gazing off without interest.  Next, he prepared to pounce on her, but she was having none of this and got up and moved. This jockeying for attention went on for about 10 minutes.  Then all the cats disappeared and the human was left to pick everything up. Such is the entertainment found in this house most mornings.

Scrubber in Chief

This is Caesar, the scrubber in chief of our household.  He never met a fur coat that he felt was sufficiently clean (or dry)….such as Macaroni’s here.Any and all of the other meows must be prepared at any time to submit to a washing administered by The Emperor.  If  they don’t submit willingly, he grabs them with those big Caesar paws and holds them down while he scrubs and scrubs. It’s kind of like meeting the Borg. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated (or at least thoroughly washed)!
