Kitty Lesson 2

Ahhh..... the humans simply cannot sit still!

But, if I hold Mama's arms and remember to look all cute and innocent while I do that; then may be she will?

Blue Eyed Boy

I like to greet my humans when they come back to our comfortable little den from their daylong hunting.

Here is me greeting my Mama:

I think they like to be 'greeted' too, because they cuddle me a lot and calls me their 'Blue Eyed Boy' when I do what I do when they come back. I think that is a term of endearment they preserved for me. I think I like it too.

In the mend... where's that?

I have been ill lately with 'gastrointestinal infection' or something like that.

There has been many vet visits and even more 'meow' protests and requests to the humans for not taking me there, the humans paid no heed to them of course. I have been given 2 doses of needly things (I think they are called 'injections'), some pineapple (must be some human food, they taste like crap) flavoured medicines- and lots of painful belly pressing.

Well... as Mama puts it, I am in the 'mend' now. I think we can put those 'vet' things behind- for now.

Ciao, you kitties. I'm off for a bit to meow at the humans- I need some cuddling.

Health update

I have stomach infection- and that is what is causing me so much grief. Sigh.

And as you would be able to correctly guess, I was taken to the vet last night- after my humans got back home and found the situation unchanged. I have had this thing as a kitten, and guess what- it’s not fun. It hurts your belly and makes your food taste bad... and also- it makes you sleep a lot.

The doctor had told Mama that I am a little ‘prone’ to parasitic infections in the stomach- but with proper attention, I should be okay. That was the major reason the humans had taken medical insurance for me all those months back. It probably means that my humans love me and wants to take care of me... properly.

And they are... Even when I am being difficult and refusing the medicine-mixed food; and not opening my mouth to take syrupy med they are trying to syringe into my mouth!

I suspect a lot of vet visits in the coming week. Meow!

Am I sick?

Seems like my humans are worried; about me- what else? Their world revolves around me after all! Duh!

I have not been very well this weekend, you see. And yesterday, I tried to do my business in my poo box and something did not seem right. I, then, meowed plenty and got out of it and did it outside the box. Yup, it was me being a bad kitty!

I am pretty set in my litter habits- so that got Mama very worried. She thinks I may be associating ‘pain’ with the poo box? I guess it’s some sort of usual ‘complex human thinking’- and I don’t know what that means. What got her worried even more is that the poo smelt bad and did not look right either... But she said she’ll give me 24 hours to show her a sign that I was well.

Otherwise she’ll take me to the vet.


Now, how can I avoid the vet? How many hours do I have? 12?

Yet another 'humans are crazy' post

I was on one of my daily territorial ramblings when I saw this:

I sniffed that my humans were upto something, so I decided to take a closer look:

I think these papers are called 'manuals' and Papa has been reading them to create a 'backyard monster'!

And then, Mama took out her backyard monster and Papa, too, the one he created and they set off for a good few hours...

Humans... whatever can be done about them?

MEOW!!! I don’t like ‘July’!

Mama tells me that this time of the year is the coldest one of the year the part of the world we live in. I wouldn’t know for certain though. This is my first July, after all! All I know is that is really is quite cold these days and you know the best place to be when the temperature is like this?

Right in front of the big black box that gives out HEAT!

I ask Mama every morning not to go hunting for the day. She does not listen even though she says she’d like to. When she is home- I have a very warm bed on her lap and lots of cuddles. It’d have been good if Papa stayed in, too. I cannot decide whose lap I like more- Mama’s or Papa’s- because while Mama’s is cushier, Papa’s has more space...

The kinds of dilemma a kitten has to go through... *sigh*.

My Cat Tree!

I mentioned my 'cat tree' a few days back, did I not?

Since my humans are less busy these days and missing Papa's litter-mates quite a lot- they've been spending a lot of time with me. They have finally taken a few photographs of me on my cat tree.

Want to see? Here goes:

Perky one, yes?

My Little Human Friend

My little human friend (Papa's 4 year old niece) left for the far far away home about two days back with her parents.

Here's a few photos from two weeks back with me playing with the little one with.... guess what... ribbons!!! Very exciting!

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="500" caption="Little Human Friend"]Little Human Friend[/caption]

While I am playing here with my little human friend- Papa is, at the background, as usual looking for his life's answers inside his 'white flat box'. Humans have no clue how to have fun, the little ones know of it somewhat though :P

I hear my little human friend also has a kitty in the place where she went away. I wonder if that kitty blogs too?

Kitty Lesson 1

Today's words of wisdom from 'Sherkhan Kitty School':

    "How to make sure that the humans cannot flee while you are sleeping"

As the following photo would explain the tactic more clearly than words:

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Captivation Lesson"]Captivation Lesson[/caption]

Some more tips while we are at it (see the above photo for reference):

1. Make sure to look cute and cuddly so that the human (Mama, in this case) is sufficiently distracted from the fact that she is being captivated by a kitten.

2. Torch your eyes to frighten away potential distractors (Papa, in this case).

I'd say that it works as I am successful in keeping the humans under control for the last two days.

Try it, may be?

Sherkhan and the Shadow Deer

A few weeks back, the parents introduced me to the 'Shadow Deer'. They would stand in front of the wall in our hallway and bring him out for me to chase. And of course- I chase!

Look here! A video of me chasing the 'Shadow Deer'!

He is a harmless monster, isn't he? I'd say it's me who's the 'vicious' one in this partnership!

Loneliness is me

Do you know how late the humans are coming home these days?

Well... late enough to not be able to spend much time with me- when it’s dark black at the outside and the temperature drops to the lowest of the day. Then the humans sleep their long and once-only sleep of the day (that’s the other thing that annoys me, though, to be honest, they are much shorter these days than their usual), only to get out for the daily ‘hunting’ while it’s still dark.

I’ve been a lonely kitten the last few weeks. The humans got me a new and fun ‘cat tree’, too- so I guess I’ve been a lonely kitten on a perky cat tree. It does give the right picture, doesn’t it... sort of like ‘train in the rain’ as Mama quotes some wise human called Neruda sometimes:

“Tell me, is the rose naked
or is that her only dress?
Why do trees conceal
the splendor of their roots?
Is there anything in the world sadder
than a train standing in the rain?”

Why do humans play with words? Is it like their toy mouse? I think it is.

Whatever, back to what I was saying! Well they took many pictures lately but they are still not transferred to the ‘square black flat box’ (insert by Mauzzie for the human readers: laptop) and they did not get the time to help me post them on the blog. Well, that’s what they say.... Excuses, excuses and more excuses! I swear if I hear one more excuse I’ll meow very very loud as my complaint against my humans!

Meow :(.

Mama promises that she’d be good from tomorrow. It probably means that Papa’s litter-mates leave for the far away land sometime between now and the next sunrise (as I can smell the family on my humans when they are back at those unacceptable hours and my cat instincts tell me that THAT’s where they have been!), and they can again be ‘claimed’ by me.

I wish the humans were not so busy :(
