Bad Girl

Haha! I really terrorized the staff over the last couple of days! I stayed out two nights in a row! When the maid and the butler came around Thursday afternoon and called me with promises of shrimp I just gave them “The Look” and walked away. Nothing they can do about it. Sometimes they trick me, though. They call Karl – and that do-gooder-I-am-such-a-people-cat” always comes when they call. And lets himself being picked up. Anytime! I never allow that outside the house. Sometimes not even inside the house. Anyways – they call Karl and pick him up and carry him in while telling him about the wonderful shrimp and beef treats that he will get. So naturally I have to follow! And then I can’t get out anymore. But not Thursday! And I stayed out and had such a good time that I did it again Friday night. I had shown myself during the day though – don’t want to scare the staff too much. But I heard how the butler gave the maid some medicine out of the big brown bottle (Konjaak, I think they call it) Friday night so she could sleep and not worry again all night long. Hahahahahaha – got to show them who is in charge sometimes!

Anastasia, Her Highness, Queen of the Wilderness, a Feline Unleashed!

( I might stay in tonight. I am kind of tired. And hungry. And thirsty. And I know they will just fawn over me all evening long!)

What a beautiful morning! I wake up and guess what: I AM CAT OF THE DAY at Emma's Kat!
Hurrrayyyyy! Yes, for all of you who didn't get it yet: I adore the limelight!!!

Karl thinks this will surely go to my head and make me unbearable for the rest of the week. I think he might be right.....

Thank You So Much Everybody...

...for attending our BBQ! It was a meowing success and we will make it a regular event!!!
Unfortunately Karl had a bit too much too fast to eat and got really sick... (see picture) or maybe it was the Tequila?

I am sure he will be better tomorrow and then we will visit everybody who came for a personal thank you note!

And who brought that Tequila? I have a dog of a headache myself - it did not go well with the nip....

Anastasia won the Catsup Cat of Character Cup!!!!!
Check the sidebar.

Show your Catity and help our friends, the dogs by signing the petition to stop Puppy Mills!!!

Karl says

I am overwhelmed!
Thank you so much everybody for your wonderful and concerned comments about my encounter with the
Bobcat, it makes my heart swell to realize how many wonderful friends I found in this short time that I am in this wonderful community!
Loud Purrrrrrrrrs to all of you!

I live out in the Sonoran Desert, and there is abundant wildlife around, including Bobcats (yes, plural!) and rattlesnakes (Anastasia has scary encounters with those as she thinks they are toys...).

But I was an outside cat all my life and would feel like I am in prison if I couldn't go out anymore. I did convince the maid - who was toying with the thought of us being inside cats because of the dangers outside - to go for a compromise: we only go out during the day.
O.k. once in a while we are not thinking and let the genes get the better of us and just don't come in in the evening. The maid and the butler don't sleep well at those occasions....

Thank you all again, we are very glad and honored to have found such wonderful friends!

Cats on Tuesday: Scary Encounter!

Karl escaped the big bad bobcat again!
No one really knows what happened: Karl doesn’t want to talk about it and I didn’t see it because I was hiding. But I heard the butler telling the maid that he saw the bobcat chasing Karl! So the butler chased the bobcat and then Karl showed up at the stairs where we all were a while later.

His heart hammered! And he looked around a lot and then he hid in the shed for the rest of the day.

We don’t like bobcats. They killed a friend of ours and ate him! That is horrible…
We asked caricature who writes that fabulously educational Blog about
cats if he could post something about bobcats – but we don’t know if he will have time and do it…

For Suzanne

We just heard the bad news from Daisy, so we will drop everything and spend the rest of the day in memory of beautiful Suzanne. We know you have peace now. Our thoughts are with your Mom in this hard time! Daisy was nice enough to allow us to share her beautiful card.

Seven Random Facts

We got tagged!!! By Fiona and Ali, The Attack Cats.

The rules: Each player starts with seven random facts about herself. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own diary about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment/pawmail that they have been tagged and to read your diary/blog.

Anastasia will do it:
1. I live by the motto "My way or the Highway!"
2. I love to eat bugs and insects.
3. I like to sneak up on Karl and sit on him when he is sleeping.
4. I do not socialize with humans, except for the maid and the butler.
5. I sometimes scare the maid and the butler by staying out all night long.
6. I eat very loudly, the staff calls it "bad table manners".
7. I am a very fast runner!

And I tag:
Fat Eric
Marie the Defender
Perfectly Parker

Tara, Princess Meezer

Disturbing News!!!

It seems that a human is invading cat privacy in the most horrifying way:
A German engineer, Juergen Petzold, currently living in South Carolina, has forced a camera on his boss, Mr. Lee, to document his whereabouts at all times! We think this is outrageous!
See the German article in Spiegel here.
And here is Mr. Petzold’s website, with links to the pictures of his criminal act on the bottom.
We encourage everybody to write a protest letter in the name of Mr. Lee!
We sure did. Let others know you did too:
