me on day 1

Today is the 5 month anniversary of my got'cha day.

On the eve of this event, I'm presenting yet another video.

This is me from the evening I was brought to my home. I was set free in the living room and given a toy mouse that I absolutely loved:

I was still a little scared of my humans, but I guess I was just weary.

I WAS very small, wasn't I?

humans make good beds!

The humans are again very busy- getting out of the house when it's still dark and coming back when it's again dark. Mama says that this is specially so as days are getting shorter here- now being winter in Australia and all, you know?

I spend most of the bright sunny times of the day sleeping and eating the food Mama leaves for me in the mornings. Weekends are different though. I spend the weekends watching what the humans do with their hands AND sometimes sleeping on the human's lap.

I think they make good beds:

*Yawn*... Okay, off to my catnap till the humans come back home.

kitten duty performed....

As you kitties know, I take my kitten duty very very seriously.

All of us experienced with humans, we know humans do not always act like we'd want them to. Right?

Like, I don't want my humans furs to smell like 'shampoo', but I guess it's just a human thing. They like shampoo and I have my suspicions that they even like the smell of it. I do not like this fact, but I guess that's part of the package and you cannot train humans of certain things- like grooming themselves like we cats do. Sigh.

Anyway- so when my humans use 'shampoo'- I do this:

I think it amuses my humans because they dont really stop me. Whatever works, you know?

I get very little sleep on weekends... I am amazed at some things humans do when they are home and I choose to watch them over sleeping!

One of those things is what they call 'doing laundry'. You see- it's when they wash their furs in a big white noisy machine.

Mama did her 'laundry' yesterday and I was adament that I WILL catch the 'furs' this time from that round window of that big white machine. So I did this:

Sigh. I still could not catch the clothes :(

Wish me luck for next time, eh?

[Note from Maussie:
Apologies for the video quality. I know it's bad :). I just did not want to distract Sherkhan by getting up to turn the lights on]

rugs are good!!!

My humans are home; and even though I just see one of them now, I know the other is behind that door on his human bed taking his nap. That tells me that today is a 'weekend'.

Mama told me that I am almost 7 months old now. Almost, as in- I still have 7 days to go. She kept on talking to Papa about how time flies and how it seems like yesterday when the humans got me home. I does not seem like 'yesterday' to me though. I have been in my home forever now!

Anyway, Mama looked into her big black box (insert by maussie for the human readers: laptop); and found some of my videos from when I was a kitten. Apparently, I have not changed much except for my size. I am bigger now...

YES! I am a BIG BOY now!

So here's a video of me playing with the floor rug and the cat tunnel in the living room from about 5 months back:

I was so silly *sneers* (and small)!

Shera in the BOX!!!

So... my humans got this box home... I think the box had some fuzzy drink thing that my Papa likes to drink.. so he got to keep the drinks and I got to keep the box. YES!!! Humans have no idea about which is more fun and which is less... I can't believe somebody'll choose those drinks over this fun box!

Anyway, it's a good box- exactly my size (meerowwww!!!). The opening was small and Mama thought that I will not be able to get in there- but I did!

See the video below:

I did startle Mama by jumping out of it all of a sudden, didn't I?


PS: See, how my Mama has learnt to meow? She is a furless wonder, isn't she?

Have I told you kitties about Greenie? Guess I haven’t.

Well.. Greenie is my friend. Mama says Greenie is my ‘Hobbes’… and when she says that, she calls me ‘Calvin’- which certainly is NOT my name and I have no idea where this is coming from;- but well… for now, I’ll just call him ‘my friend’.

Greenie is a green crocodile from the IKEA-place. He has been with my humans from before I was born. He does not do much usually- just stays there on the living room floor… I play with him a lot. But I’ve heard that crocodiles can be vicious, so when I play with him- I’m very very careful that I am not too agressive with him. Obviously… you know? Who wants to be bitten by a crocodile. No one!

Here is a video of me, playing with Greenie:

The bean who’s holding Greenie so that he cannot come too close to me, that’s my Papa. See.. I can always count on my Papa to protect me from vicious teeth!

vaccum monsters are still bad...!

I am tired today. I have not had the chance all day to fill up my catnap quota.

Mama was out of bed quite early for a weekend morning, but she's been upto what she'd say 'Mega Cleaning' ALL day. All the jars from behind the mystery door came out, the vaccum monster came out, the rugs that stay with me in the living room got rubbed with what she calls a 'lint roller', I can also smell some flowery thing that she rubbed everything with; and oh.. the litter tray crystals are all new...

I could sleep amidst all these, you see- we cats can sleep though anything, but it was too much fun smelling all those stuff that I don't really see everyday... except the vaccum monster... he makes too much noise. I wish he'd stay in his storage room for a long time now. I don't ever miss him.

Now mama has something on the stove and while that's 'cooking', she's helping me blog. Do you think the day has offered all that it could and I can now get some shut-eye?

human world is way too complicated...

I guess, this has become a weekend blog of little Sherkhan- as my humans are hardly ever home these days to help me blog other than on weekends. Both the humans are working a lot these days... something to do with 'keeping up in the financial crisis'.. whatever that means.

I do think that the human world is full of unnecessarily complicated things. I mean, can't they make their life as simple as we cats have: we sleep, we eat, we hunt, we play- and even then we have plenty of time to take care of our humans.

My humans are home today though and Mama is now helping me blog. I am a little suspicious that she'd flee like she does once I close my eyes, so I'm trying my best to stop it from happening. The trick is to sleep on the human's lap, or at least keep a part of your body on the human (paws work well in this case). That way the human cannot leave without you noticing- see Sherkhan has brains!!

To my human's defense- they ARE trying a lot to balance work and life. And they are not doing too bad either- there are things that's lagging behind a little, updating my blog being one of the major ones. You see, Mama loves me just as much, and so does Papa- and I am still the happy and affectionate kitten I was. It's all good really.

Anyyways... now I'm back to my one of the many catnaps of the day. Stay well, you kitties!
