We kitties know which species is the most intelligent on this planet (clue: not humits or goggies...)

Searching for possible leftovers...
Well it has being a while since my last blog entry...didn't realise it...but you see I'm a really busy kitty with so many responsibilities...one of which is that I have to keep 2 humits in control as some times they can be really a pawfull...really such a hard work those humits...you always have to show them the right way to do things...I don't know how would they survive if I'm not around to keep them in control. I mean they can't go away on such a thing which they call 'holiday' because I won't be there to help them 24 hours a day...they wouldn't be able to cope on their own for a full week...they need to have me and the other two around 24 hours a day to feed, clean our litter trays, give me and the other too...their full attention 24 hours a day, to play with me when I'm bored, etc...otherwise their life will be meaningless...so you see humits do need us, kitties, to be around to help them cope with life and other unimportant things which don't include us...
But although I haven't being blogging all this time a lot of things have happened in the meantime...some quite interesting and other less important and worth wasting my precious time on recalling them...One of the most interesting things that took place was that ginger pest had tooth problems and was drooling like mad..(so funny...) and therefore humits had to take him to the vet (ha, ha...although I did worry for a while when I saw that dreaded basket coming out from the spare room... you never know who is in trouble till the humits turn their attention to you and start being really really nice...) where they removed his tooth (he, he...). If it was anybody else I might have felt a bit sorry for his condition...but not for that annoying loud and smelly pest...it was funny though...now we can call him toothless...although he doesn't seem to be suffering now..which is a petty...if anything he appears healthier and more annoying than before...grr...maybe humits can take him again to that vet humit and have some more teeth removed...whether they need removing or not...
Also Dora outside has being very naughty as she managed to catch a lot of fledglings (few blackbirds and the little robins that came out from the nest that was in our garden)...humits for a couple of days weren't very happy with her but they soon forgot all about the loss of those little innocent birdies and started justifying her behaviour on the grounds that she is a cat after all and that wasn't really her fault but the humits that let her outside all the time....
Oh well...humits...so unreliable...they can change their minds so easily...
What else happened...oh yeah...but I'm not going to mention it on today's blog entry...you'll have to wait till next time...meows and purrs for now!

It has being a while since I've blogged but you know how things are when you are a very busy kitty like me....not enough hours in a day to snooze, eat, bully the others let alone write...Actually I have being very very busy helping my humit to complete her research (what a week that was....we all got headaches and pulled a lot of fur or hair out) as well helping her with other assignments and work...boy there have being a lot of enquiries about human-kitty issues...humans are getting worse by the day it seems. It must be really difficult for all these poor cats to have to live and cope with humits that behave in strange ways...I mean humits some times can be almost impossible to tolerate with all these mood swings they get and depression and work related stress...they become inhumit if you know what I mean and then they will blame everybody else...mainly us because in most cases we can't talk in humit tongue to explain how wrong they are...Anyway the fact remains that a lot of humits seem to have issues with many aspects of a kitty's life that they should already know how to deal with, for example, when a kitty is not using the litter tray because she has either to share it with others or because of cleaning issues or even because of location and texture issues...I mean I purrsonally hate the woody stuff because it gets stuck on my paws and fur and then humit complains that I look dirty and messy and in need of brushing...just the thought of that gave me the shivers now...brrr! Humits that live with kitties they should know they are very lucky and privileged because they are allowed to share the shame environment with us and they shouldn't make fuss when we are doing only what it is only natural to us...not using an inappropriate located, not cleaned properly or even smelly because of other kitty litter box...we are kitties with standards you know....anyway time to stop...I think I heard a humit in the kitchen...purrs for now!

Today I thought that I should write something as recently I must admit I have being a bit lazy...I mean only when it comes to updating my blog entries...it's not that there are not things to write about...oh yeah there are plenty...a kitty's daily life is never boring despite general humit belief that we don't do much else than eat (a lot), groom (a lot) and snooze (a lot)....well not really, this is just a myth that you humits created and have sustained about us.
Yes I do like eating...you see you can't really say no to tuna and salmon treats but as I said before we eat less than humits and even dogs do..., yes we do groom a lot but this is only because we like to be clean and smell nice (and we do smell better than some humits and definitely a lot better than those silly dogs who they actually smell bad). Snoozing also is very important for us kitties so we can save energy for hunting and the possibility that we might need to escape from other predators (some silly dog perhaps...) and also and more importantly we don't snooze as much as humits think as we take more power naps than deep snooze and power naps are good for you anyway as humits keep saying.
But again humits seem to forget that we do other things too...for example we are most of the times there waiting for our humits when they come home feeling miserable and stressed so we can cheer them and help them feel a lot better...what else is better than seeing a cute furry face who looks so pleased to see you back (of course the fact that we are going to get fed as well it's totally irrelevant here...we are talking about the emotional support that we do offer in such occasions to the humits and not trying to look any deeper to the matter...end of story!). Do not forget that we also help you to relax and have some fun when we allow you to interact with us and entertain us by allowing you to play with us with those silly toys that you humits insist on buying for us and also that we always there to hear all your rumblings and moaning about other humits who don't seem to understand you or listen to you, etc, without ever complaining and always appearing to be really interested (although your discussions and monologues are often really boring and meaningless but of course you will never hear a kitty saying into her humit's face that she needs to get a life and stop moaning about how unfair life is...because that's life, unfair and cruel...get over it). Finally, for the time being, and most importantly we allow you to touch us to help you feel better, to pick us up and treat us like helpless humit babies and we even in some occasions we will touch you as well on our own accord just to make you feel better and to show you that we care....So as you see humits we do a lot more than just eat, groom and snooze and we don't even get paid for all our efforts (let's not forget here that we often bring home food for you too...) meoww!

There is so much bad press and publicity everywhere these days that unfortunately they can do a lot of damage and they can change a cat's life for the worse and damage their good relationships with their humats....I mean humats sometimes they seem to have far too much time on their hands and as a result they often come up with ideas and even worse solutions which are not for a kitty's best interest...
A good example is their current belief and understanding that us kitties can get really fat and become obese like themselves...I mean who ever heard such a preposterous idea...we DO NOT get fat (I repeat WE DO NOT GET FAT)...we simply just don't eat because food is there or because we are bored...these are silly only humat behaviours not behaviours that us, kitties, will implement under normal circumstances...
Listen once and for all humats, us, kitties, we'll eat only when we are hungry...most of the times little and often and just because some of us are naturally bigger than others (you know we simply are big boned and with a lots of furz) we will as a result look a lot bigger than others...you see our mass doesn't change, only the volume increases (and that volume is mainly fur) and therefore your scales are wrong...heavier doesn't necessarily mean fatter...just heavier bones or....err fur!
So yes fur is heavier than you think and therefore it is not our actually weight (or mass) that appears to increase...just a bit of extra fur...which of course means that as result there is no need for you to cut down on our daily food portions, treats and generally put us on a what you so called diet...diet is a human concept which doesn't apply to us...it's very similar to let's say having a vegetarian cat...he, he good one! Vegetarian cat! Ha, ha...sometimes I can be sooo funny...cat that doesn't eat meat or fish...not purrrsible...
Anyway and to get a bit more serious...so yes, cats don't get fat (of course as always there would be some exceptions to this rule...some kitties who are not well, mentally or physically, will get a bit overweight due mainly to situations and conditions beyond their own control...but these will be very very few cases and you can't draw conclusions from these very few cases that can apply to the general kitty population) therefore there is no need to put us, kitties, on a diet because you think that we overeat or that we are overweight...we are not.
So come on humat time to go back to normal, no need for dieting just normal big portions and treats again for me, a very poor, little and very hungry kitty...meooowww?

Yesterday I had a little argument with my favourite humat and as a result we both ended up being annoyed with each other. I'm not going to mention who's was at fault here and who was responsible for the little misunderstanding (after all we all make mistakes humats or kitties, don't we now?) but simply I want to mention that often when you are sharing the same personality with the person you live with this often can lead to a lot of problems...
You see, I strongly believe that us and our humats we are often sharing the same personality traits, which it is the reason why we are so compatible (serious talk here...the result of being the assistant of a professional humat) and we are forming such good relationships, relationships that humats sometimes they can't even have with other humats. This is why humats they like us, appreciate us and get so attached to us. Which, in general, is a good thing as it means that humats treats us as equals and even in some cases as better than equals (a little pampering doesn't hurt anyone especially us kitties).
The problem arises though when these similarities can lead to unpleasant situations, for example when both protagonists (whooa I didn't know that I know that word...who is a clever kitty then?) are sharing a trait that is not considered as a positive one...let's say for example that both are very very stubborn. This can only lead to trouble sometimes!
I'm well known for my stubbornness and determination something that my humat is also known for and which in some occasions has lead to rather unpleasant situations. After all accidents do happen and there is no reason to blame anyone for them...So when I make clear to the humat that I don't require any cleaning after a little accident I expect her to respect my wishes....but no, not my humat! Oh no, she has to clean me thoroughly without taking into consideration my own wishes...and in the end somebody ends up getting hurt and I, being told off...
If only she wasn't so bl***y stubborn....Oh well that was in the past and today things have got back to normal again (phewww)...as we both had to apologize to each other.
But situations like these often make you wonder...maybe it is not a good thing that we both are very similar but then again if she didn't understand me that well then perhaps I wouldn't have being the way I'm today (hmmm deep thinking here!). Well the important thing is that despite everything deep down she knows that I'm the one who is in charge at home anyway, not like the other humat who has not a clue or understands a lot about kitty psychology or behaviour...he is a typical humat you see, unfortunately...Anyway things are not really bad anyway if you think about it, even after our little arguments since humat apologizes with little treats and nice belly rubs...purrs for now!

Sometimes I really despair with my humat as she can be soooo unreasonable and out of touch with the reality...How on earth can she accuse me of being lazy when herself is as bad or even worse.
'You are neglecting your duties, Sheng Chi', she sayz....and she carries on...'you are not updating your blog as often as you used to...'.
Well she might have a little point here but there are a lot of reasons for not blogging often these days. You see she seems to forget that I spend a lot of time helping her with her work and study and that takes a lot of my time and patience at times...
I can hear you asking what do you actually do kitty? How can you actually help your humat? So I believe that this is the right time to answer all these questions and to make clear to those who are interested what my actual role of an assistant involves.
For starters I provide my humat with help and support, I'm always there for her when she needs me (and even when she doesn't) to purr and to allow her to cuddle me and pet me when she feels the need to alleviate her stress levels or when she needs to relax (this is a very important role, a role which all respectable kitties should be familiar with and they should always provide their humats with the necessary support...besides they do need us to help them cope with their own making but still stressful life).
Then it is my other also important role as an assistant; you see I'm helping her to find solutions to problems other humats have with their kitties....Yes do you believe it? How can anybody have problems with us? We are the perfect creatures for all the situations, we do not cause problems...how can we anyway, we are purrfect after all! And this is exactly the point that I'm trying to pass across to my humat when she has to advise other humats about their cat companions' behaviour. I'm trying to help and encourage her to think out of the box...it is not really the cat that is the problem but the humat that lives with her...humats often need to adapt to an environment where cats are living and often this transition can take some time or it doesn't go smoothly but as everybody knows, us, kitties we are patient creatures and we will allow our humats to take as long as it takes to adapt eventually to our way of life...
This is why my role as an assistant is really important, because I must help humat to help others so us kitties enjoy a happy environment with our humat servants...Meowws for now!

Anyway back to the snow...this was the first time that I saw so much snow in a day and snow that refused to melt for days and days...whoaaa...I'm so glad that I don't really live in a country where people and kitties get snowed in for days upon days or even months! Everything was white and very very cold...All birdies outside looked so fluffed and cold and hungry that I felt really really sorry for them and I wanted to bring them in but of course that wouldn't have being possible and I would have probably being misunderstood for my actions being a kitty, as we, kitties, supposedly hunt and catch birdies (although in reality I'm a more fishy kitty... I like my tuna more than my chicken flavoured sachet). At least my humats were very understanding and they were leaving a lot of food for the poor and cold birdies and as result we had many visiting our garden some that I had never seen before which it was nice and fun as I was trying to spot new ones.
But the matter of truth is that although I'm covered in lots of fur and even have fur under my paws (the humats call it tuft) which makes me suitable for such weather (yeah right) I don't really like snow and cold weather...as everybody moans about it, it is very cold and apparently treacherous and dangerous for humats when they are going out...I most definitely prefer nice weather, sunny and warm days when I can sit by the window sill and snooze under the nice and hot sun...yeah most definitely I like warm weather...plus I get bored with my humats complaining about the bad weather every single day and also being miserable and moody all the time...I really can't wait for the spring to arrive. Of course the worst part is when the weather gets too bad that humats can't go to shops to get my food and shops run out of cat food because they can't get supplies...I mean that is the worse case scenario for any kitten...it's like living in a disaster zone like in these movies we see on TV and DVDs....how can shops run out of cat food? Unheard of! They should have known better and they should have prepared themselves for such emergencies...I can't go half a day without my favourite tuna flavour sachets...Thank goodness that the snow has melted and everything is back to normal again otherwise I don't know what I would have done if I couldn't get my tuna treats...no, no, snow is bad...when spring is coming again?

Time to get some well deserved attention from sleeping humat!!
As we are now well into New Year and new decade for that matter and things are going back to normal very slowly that is (humats, being humats they haven't removed Catmas decorations and tree yet...they keep say that it is not time yet....well I don't know what they mean as the poor tree is dying indoors and needs to be outside and to also stop all these pine needles falling on the carpet and then ending up on my own fur and then humats will moan again that my fur is all messy and needs brushing...grrr...getting annoyed now...it's all the humats fault anyway for bringing the damn thing indoors in the first place...trees should be stay outside in their natural environment!!!)
Anyway since it is a new year and a new beginning (according to silly in my opinion humat tradition) it's about time to make some new decisions and to decide how to improve this new year.
Of course having to put on that horrible anti-flea stuff on me it's not a great start to the year...I mean how I've ended up with those little critters...I don't go outside to be exposed to other creatures. I think it is the humats' fault in the first place, they brought them home on purpose...part of their cunning plan to groom me once again...I can see very clearly now what they are trying to do and is not working...I will go into hide and will only come out when they are asleep...Oh hmm! This might not actually work as I will need to come out more often for food and stuff...Damn my cunning plan is not going to work...Perhaps if they use all the stuff on the other two they won't have enough left for me...If I also play it very cute...maybe they will feel sorry for me and they won't put that stuff on me...What a start for the new year...apparently the last time that we needed that flea stuff was back in March...It is scary how the humat can find out that we have fleas when we don't really scratch that much to cause suspicion...I think humat might know us a bit too well...maybe she is not humat after all...I always thought that she was part cat too!
Anyway back to my resolutions (as humats called it) for this new year...well I don't really think that I have any bad habits anyway but nevertheless I will try to eat a bit less to please humat (of course that applies to only when she is watching...when she is preoccupied....well that is a different matter...if I'm hungry and there is food...there is nothing I can do....I'm a cat after all!). What else I should do for the new year...Oh yes I will demand more attention...I've already started being more demanding...I tend to jump on the bed early in the morning and making certain that both humats are awake (if not I will scratch exposed skin or put tail on face to tickle) so they give me enough attention before they get up...After all humat said that I had being a very good kitty all previous year and therefore I think I fully deserve a bit more attention this year! Meooow!
