My Rug and I'm Sticking to it!

Good morning, Peaches here! My human is starting to pack stuff for her move!  Aaaagh! Check out the empty bookcase next to me!  Well she's not taking this rug cuz it's my favorite! And the rug next to it, too! Sometimes a cat just has to take action.  Note my new "protective posture." I made it up myself in order to secure this rug and any others I like.  Wouldn't you do the same?

When my human saw me in this funny position she said "hold it!" while she ran to get her camera. Being  a considerate cat (and always up for a photo op) I cooperated by staying this way for 5 whole minutes with my legs extended forward while she took my picture.  How many cats would be so accommodating?

Today we are joining The Cat On My Head's Sunday hop, hoping for empathy and hugs. Have YOUR cats ever made a move?

Celebrating Aviation Day #nationalaviationday

 My idea of celebrating National Aviation Day is riding IN a plane...whereas Paprika's idea is writing ON it! Show-off!


Okay so I finally purr-suaded my sister to ride with me.  It wasn't easy...

Happy Aviation Day to all!

Real Estate Woes Continued...My im-PURR--fect Hiding place.+ Friendly Fill Ins

Continuing our real estate saga, resulting from our human putting her home on the "market" (whatever that means)...

The invasions from aliens continued for a while. (We consider creatures who are not OUR human as aliens).  So of course we had to HIDE during the multiple invasions. Well here's the deal. I thought I'd found a PURR-FECT place to hide. I stationed myself under a long white piece of clothing in my human's closet. I was however AGHAST when my human showed me this picture.
Betrayed by my white feet!  

Seeing that the "jig" was up, I hastened to vacate my less than Purr-Rect hiding place.  

This week, we were "in the mood" to purr-ticipate in Miss Ellen's Friendly Fill-ins--for which we thank their creative  creators!  These answers are from me, Peaches

1. I love it when my hiding places are NOT discovered_
2. I know it’s time to vacate certain hiding places when my white boots give me away!
3. Others come to me do not come to me when they need "how to hide successfully" lessons.
4. We should never take our human for granted. We discovered this fact when the aliens arrived (see above) who did not cater to our needs as she does. In fact they wished we'd leave!

Hopefully you kitties all survived similar exas-purr-ations!

Tell-A-Joke Day

Wishing all a happy Tell A Joke Day!  Do you like our little joke?

National Tell-A-Joke Day was yesterday but we were VERrrry busy hiding in closets from our visitor invasions (called real estate prospects) so we are celebrating it today!  Somehow we've managed through all the hard times not to get mad at each other. Do you like Peaches' new hairdo?  I arranged it myself! - Hissingly yours, Paprika the Cat

Without our PURR-mission! Home Invasion!



Fellow fur-balls listen up! We here at Peaches and Paprika home have been subjected to the most unfair and inconsiderate of circumstances.  For 10 days, strange humans, not related to OUR human have been traipsing through OUR house.  We have been forced to hide in dark corners and closets to avoid detection, as we do not know their intentions.

Our human tells us she has listed her CONDO FOR SALE!  All we know is, we've put up with a lot of home invasions lately. Our human says they're called "realtors" and "prospective buyers."  Is that the same as "criminals?"  True, they have not tried to harm us, but you never know what they have planned.

I thought I had a great hiding place in the closet under some jackets.  However, my human informed me, she could see my snowy white boots under the jackets and some of my striped tail.  Dang!

We will report back soon to let you know what happens!
-- Peaches the cat.



Wait till you hear what happened today.  Our human suddenly stuffed us into containers, and wheeled us off to a strange place.  She called it "neighbors' house."  She did this WITHOUT OUR PURR-MISSION. Is there no end to the indignities we suffer here?  We arrived at a strange location, and were escorted into something called "neighbor's bathroom."  Our human unzipped our jails (carriers) and said we could come out but we saw nothing around us we wanted to come out TO so we stayed in the carriers.  At least we were safer there.  We moaned and howled a bit more because we were disoriented.. Our human returned to our new quarters to comfort us, whereupon she was reprimanded by her silly neighbor for paying us too much attention!  The neighbor who thought she would be getting some kitty love from us, urged our human to encourage us out into the living room. Well, against her better judgement our human agreed. Out we crawled....but Paprika was having none of it! She made a beeline  underneath the sofa which was exactly what our human knew she would do.  I, who am a brave cat, prowled around the kitchen and dining room, meowing with all my diverse meows especially the poignant meow (mrrrrowwww???) , because I had a lot to say about this situation.  


Once back in our OWN turf, we let our human know in no uncertain terms, our opinion of the whole episode which she irritatingly called "our adventure".  Hrrrrmph! No WAY!  We sulked for at least 5 days, including scowling at her with flattened ears.  From time to time, we fastened her with our best "How COULD you?" looks!  She better not pull this trick on us again, or we could do worse here!  Grrr...Mrow...


More Scowls Galore!

Happy World Lion Day

Our human thought it was Oh so cute to get us these lion costumes she saw on the internet so we could celebrate World Lion Day.  It's today, August 10, when these awesome majestic creatures are honored.  We TOLD her we were tigers not lions, but she urged us to get into the spirit of the game!  So we are!

To tell you the truth, we really enjoyed these costumes cuz they were soft to our furs and felt kinda comfy.  Paprika even roared a couple of times in a voice I'd never heard.  All in all don't you think we are fearsome felines or what!!

Here are a few snapshots of "us" getting ready for our 
"Queen of the Jungle" photoshoot...

What do you think?  Would we pass as "lions" in your book? Have you ever celebrated this day?
