Sleepy Sunday - He Is Mine!!!

Yes, this is Emil. And yes, Karl tries to do the Sleepy Sunday.... But I own him - and I will wake him up any moment now so he plays with me!
By the way: Our beds are sitting on the stain glass window that the butler is making right now.

Anastasia's Box of Live

I decided to do this meme which was created by Miss Peach for Anastasia.
Here is her "box of live"

and I put the detailed post about it on her own blog.

I miss you and I love you, Anastasia!

Our Secret Paws!!!

Our Secret Paws arrived actually a while ago - but I was so busy with CCSI that I postponed posting about it...
We got a wonderful package from
Zippy, Princess Zipporah!

Emil and I are bringing out the package and then Emil and Mrs. OZ opened it and found all these wonderful things!

Temptations in THREE different flavors! Gourmet food. Great toys. And HOMEGROWN CATNIP!
The maid took that away and said something like "rationing"...

Then Emil really got into the fish on the string toy. I am just supervising, I am a famous and successful writer, I don't do such silly behavior....

In the back you can see Anastasia's 'box of life' - I will post about that this weekend.
While Emil plays and I supervise, Mrs. OZ guards the rest of our secret paws treasure!

Thank you Zippy soooooo much!!!!

P.S. Do you see how BIG Emil is??? And he is only 6 month old!!!!!

Happy Birthday Maid!!!

Mrs.OZ, Karl, Ruis and Emil in front.

Meanwhile back at the ranch we have the house to ourselves!!! So I invited my boyfriend Ruis over for some days and today we will celebrate the maid's birthday with a big PARTY of our own!!!
Anybody who wants to join: there is plenty of food, we have the whole fridge for ourselves, and of course plenty of niptini..... hahahahahahahahahaha
Let's party!

Thursday Thirteen: Excuses

Thirteen excuses why I am not visiting other cats right now:

1. CCSI - I had to do re-writes.

2. CCSI - I am working on sets.

3. CCSI - I am working on costumes.

4. CCSI - I have more than a dozen emails every day and as soon as I answer one there are two more!

5. CCSI - I have new ideas that I have to write down.

6. CCSI - I get distracted by Ruis when we are together at the set....

7. CCSI - We have a black hole that swallows emails and creates time consuming confusion.

8. CCSI - I am working on some more sets.

9. CCSI - I am working on some more costumes.

10. CCSI - I have some more new ideas that I have to write down.

11. CCSI - I have to think about my Oscar acceptance speech.

12. CCSI - I got niptinied at Marilyn's party and lost time due to a hangover. I drank the niptinies to calm down from CCSI production!

13. The Maid - my typist will abandon me for five days to celebrate her birthday in New York.

And yes, those are really just excuses because nothing should be more important than visiting your friends! I hope our show - airing in four parts, starting December 14 - will make up for it.
And to tell you the truth: it is a whole lot of fun to be part of the production! I love it!!!

Busy At The Set....

My deepest apologies to everybody for not visiting at the moment. I had NO idea how busy one can get during production of a new CCSI episode!!! Above a sneak peak at the reindeer during rehearsal. Everybody is so professional and talented and hard working, it is a pleasure!
Do you know we have a cast of 25 international actors? You can find them all at our fabulous producer

Ruis is directing. He is sooooo good! And the sweetest cat I ever met, purr purr purr.........

Opus and Roscoe! What a team. Not only did they write the first extraordinary episode of CCSI, they also do graphic design, are co-producing, and act!
Asta, Daisy and Zoolatry are all helping with the graphics!

Fashion Friday

O.k. I'm going. To the CCSI premiere, that is. After having to endure Karl these last few days the least he can do is take me! What do you think of this gown? I hope the show airs soon - I do not know how much longer Emil and I can deal with "Mr. Writer Karl'...

What a wonderful day yesterday was. After I woke up from my hang over that is. It was my sweet Ruis birthday. And all 22 parts for the second CCSI episode were filled. And the butler gave me chicken and beef. And the mailman brought us MAIL!!!! There was a big envelope all the way from TAIWAN from our dear friend Adan!!!

He and his human Michico are just the best! We got the wonderful postcard of cute Adan and the most beautiful piece of artwork: "...made for Anastasia and Karl. Michico just finished few days ago, the postcard of my hasn't send to her yet. Because Karl said we could take our time. The reason we are late because michico is making this. We both wish Anastasia would be happy at that side of rainbow bridge."

Thank you sooooo much Adan and Michico, that was the most wonderful present ever!

And we also got our calendar from the
Cat Blogosphere!!! It was a beautiful Monday.

The show is cast. Thank you Sassy, thank you everybody for auditioning.

And who cares if I look a bit hung-over - I am still THE Mancat...

Announcement and Seven Things Meme

Sassy accepted my script for a CCSI Holiday Mystery!!!! I am SO excited - I won't tell more until she posts about it....
And Opus and Roscoe, the FABULOUS writers of the last CCSI story tagged me for this meme a while ago. I am supposed to write seven things you might not know about me. That will not be easy as I think I 'spilled' all about me at one time or another....

1. I prefer 5 day old food served in a dish somewhere in the garden over fresh food served in the house.

2. I take either the maid or the butler for a walk around the house every morning. Sometimes I walk them both, one after the other. They follow without the need of a leash!

3. I talk very loudly when I wrestle with Edgar. I did so with Anastasia too.

4. I love to use the pile of potting soil outside the butler's front door as a litter box. I still refuse to use any litter box inside.

5. I like attacking grass bushels and then play with them.

6. I sometimes hide in the ground covering bush in the back garden and wait for someone to come by, cat or human doesn't matter, to attack them. If no one comes by I scream, I mean, call for them.

7. I sleep about at least 12 uninterrupted hours every night.

Be The Blog Award

...this award is presented to a successful blogger, one who can “be the blog” - making it their own, staying with it, interacting with the readers, and just plain having fun.
My wonderful friends
Opus and Roscoe gave me this award and I am very grateful!
I would love to give this award to

The Cat Blogosphere. This blog deserves every award that is out there but especially this one! It's THE blog and I wouldn't know what to do without it....
Skeezix. Now if one cat can "be the blog" - that'll be him! Not only is it one of the funniest blogs at all but he always let's us know about things going on and friends in need! Like Angus right now.
Gretchen. Sending out Mike to visit all of us must be the most ingenious idea a cat ever have had! Did you follow this guys traveling itinerary so far? And if you haven't gotten in line to have Mike over for a week go to Gretchen's blog and do so!

You Make Me Smile Award

This is Emil! Karl allowed me to post today because it was of me, in a way, that we got the "You Make Me Smile Award" from Baby Mao! I'd rather not go into the details of how that came to be - let's just say it seems that Baby Mao and I share a similar affliction... Thank you Baby Mao for giving us this award!Karl also allowed ME to chose who we will give this award to!!! I am so excited!
I chose:

Clover, because she is a youngster like me, and grows as fast as I do, and she is so cute you have to smile when you just see her.
Jack, because I laugh when I read his blog and I liked it how he dressed up his crazy humans!
Russell, because I feel a connection there... It makes me smile to see how he wiggles his way into a household. Just like I do here!
Yao-Lin, because maybe then he will be nicer to Baby Mao. And he makes the maid fall of her chair a lot, laughing. Which makes me laugh!

Mancat Monday

I very much apologize for not being around that much but the staff has "things going on" and is under the impression that that justifies cutting back my blogging time....
Any suggestions for staff punishment will be greatly appreciated!

Fashion Friday by Mrs. OZ

Karl showed me Anastasia's hat collection - oh dear, that girl was the Imelda Marcos of hats!
With Karl's permission I will model one once in a while so they don't get to waste...
(Ramses - leave the feathers alone!)

On another note: I am very honored to be featured as Cat of the Day - but I have to say that Karl submitted my profile without neither my knowledge nor my consent...
What does he mean by "She is not a companion cat"? I just don't jump in there, I need to know who I am dealing with. And about the hissing.... Wouldn't you hiss if you have 5 pounds of kitty land on your back out of the blue all day long?

I do have to say I got better. I think I may start liking them actually....

IDYA #3: DUYS (Dress Up Your Staff)

Here is Anastasia’s last Dare in her own words:

I Dare You All to Dress Up Your Staff. Dress up your humans in the most ridiculous, silly, weird, comical, insane, funny, humiliating, splendid, outrageous outfit you can imagine, post their picture on your blog and put your name and the link to the post in the Mr. Linky box below.”

And please, Dare your
nomss friend and if you don’t have one, make one!

Finally you can get revenge:
Let your humans experience what it feels like to be dressed up for public display!!!

As an added incentive I, Karl, decided to give a Value T-shirt of your choice from the
watgog store to the viewers favorite!
Everybody can vote on their favorite picture next Friday and Saturday (November 9 and 10). One vote per animal. Our picture is not eligible for voting.

I put the Dare up today, on the
Day of the Dead, in the hope that Anastasia’s spirit might come and dare you herself! Questions? Help? Email us!

And here are the maid and the butler, dressed up according to the written instructions Anastasia left behind:
Helpful hint: Temptations didn’t work… Try chocolate…. Each of them got a full pound of it – they still would not smile, no matter what – I was under the impression that they did not appreciate the experience….
Use of Photoshop and similar programs is strongly discouraged but if you have humans that absolutely go wild when you try and dress them up – you can use image editing as a last resort of course…
If you like the T-shirts they are wearing you can purchase them here.

If you accept the Dare you can pick up your button

Thursday Thirteen

Here are 13 reasons for you to accept IDYA#3 (I Dare You All #3) which will be posted tomorrow, Friday November 2nd at 7 am Pacific Time.

1 - Once again: you do not have to wear a pink wig.

2 - As a matter of fact: you do not have to wear ANYTHING.

3 - You can dare your nomss friend to do it too. And if you don't have a nomss friend this is a good opportunity to make one.

4 - It will be a lot of fun for you to do.

5 - You do not need Photoshop! The use of any picture editing program is actually strongly discouraged!

6 - You might feel really good after doing it.

7 - You will receive another fabulous button to put on your blog.

8 - One word: REVENGE!

9 - It will be revealing.

10 - It will be fun to watch how the others do it.

11 - It will be a bit different from what you usually do.. .

12 - If we get more participants than we had at the last Dare we will ALL wear the Groucho Marx glasses!

13 - It was Anastasia’s last Dare. She had it all written down right after the Pink Wig Challenge and then I came up with my nomss friend idea and got so excited about it that she said: “What the hell Karl. Just do it, I can wait.” She couldn’t, as it turned out. So I hope you will all accept the challenge in honor of her!

Those last two points should be reason enough for everybody to attend!!!!

Cherish Meme for Miss Peach

Our good friend Chairman Mao tagged us for this wonderful meme: Here are the rules for the Cherish meme, as written by Adan:

Hey, everyone, this time, I decide to start this cherish meme, here are some ways (depends on which person you write), and bring our love to Miss Peach~! She always makes us know what love is!

1. tell us what is the most sweetest warm thing you will do to your mommy (what is the sweetest thing that your kitty will do to you)

2. And, hug your mommy, tightly... (and, hug your kitty....tightly...)

3. Tag your good friend...

4. Leave your computer, and continuing hug each other...

Karl: I go between the legs of my staff and roll over and rub all against them and give their ankles little love bites and look at them adoringly. And purr loudly. Which I don't do a lot, my purring usually is very silent.

Mrs. OZ: I am new and I only do this today for Miss Peach! I go and sit on the human's chest and put my paws left and right of their neck and purr.

Emil: I touch them with just one paw, very softly and give them the look! The one that lets them melt like butter! Hahahahahahaha - I am GOOD!

In the spirit of the Ballici to spread this meme fast for Miss Peach to get better fast I tag several cats too:
Mr. Hendrix

Too Sad to Post

Please sign the petitions, see sidebar: Burma, the starved dog, animals matter.
Purr and pray for the animals and humans in the wildfires in California; the animals who died and got sick from the poisoned food; all the beings who suffer.

We are overwhelmed by the evil in this world today, so we will try and meditate on the good things that are hopefully there too.
Like this: Thank you Gattina for the wonderful header! She made it for us out of the goodness of her heart.
