My cat duties

Working really hard....

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!

After the snow...eventually melted

Waiting for spring to arrive!

It has being a while since I've written anything on this blog but I blame the weather for this lack of creativity...you see when it is cold I get a bit too lazy and my paws feel a bit too stiff for typing...besides humat was a bit busier than usual and as a result I couldn't use the laptop to write...yes I know excuses...but still..good ones!

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?

New Year's Thoughts

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!
