Being rather lazy recently....

Not snoozing and eating all day...I do a lot of reading too!

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'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 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!

Diets and cats don't go together...

Not fat....just fluffed up... a lot!

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 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 is a human concept which doesn't apply to's very similar to let's say having a vegetarian cat...he, he good one! Vegetarian cat! Ha, ha...sometimes I can be sooo that doesn't eat meat or fish...not purrrsible...

Anyway and to get a bit more 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?

When the same personalities collide

Stubborn, who me?

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) 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!
