Cat Sanctuary in Ottawa

I told everyone that our parents went last week to Canada. They also visited Ottawa where there is something important. One volunteer started to help cats there and now there is a SPECIAL CAT SANCTUARY right in the center of Ottawa by the Parliament building. This was mommie's favorite part of the trip.

This cat sanctuary has been here since 1970s and helps stray cats to get food. Mommie said she donated all her coins in her pocket to the cat sanctuary and then dad said this was over $3 because in Canada the coins have more than $1 sometimes. But that is okay because she would have gived more if she had more in her pocket.

There is also a strange groundhog in the sanctuary, and some black squirrels. This is funny because here in the midwest of america we have only brown squirrels.

Wordless Wednesday

Can you see what we seed in our yard?

Back on the internets!

Hello effurryone,

We are back on the internets! Parents were on vacation in La Belle Quebec all week so I did not get a chance to use the lap top since they forgot to leave it on for me. I am very happy they are back, although we did get a lot of R&R while they were gone. First, Auntie V. came to visit us every day twice a day to feed us and play with us. She played with us every day for 1 or 2 HOURS! The rest of the time we relaxed a lot. Then the rest of the week Auntie V. had to go on vacations herself so the Uncle S. came to visit us. We really likes him. This time I even liked him enough that I sitted by him on the couch for movie time. Usually I like to sit by myself in my secret spots in the corner or under the couch or on my kitty condo, but I made a special exception. Our only concern is that Figaro was on a diet all week so he was begging for foods ALL OF THE TIMES. Mommie said he needs to be on a little diet because he has some tummy fats. Last month he weighted 10 pounds 14 ounces. But yesterday he got weighted and he weighted 10 pounds 15 ounces. I weighted about 7 pounds 8 ounces last month and I dropped down to 7 pounds 7 ounces, just from FIG's diet. I do not knows why because I did not have to be on a diet because I am the perfect weight for my size (I am a small kitty...Figaro is a little bit bigger!)

Now that the parents are back we get to go outside again. Do you like how our FRONT yard looks? It is not as fun as the back yard which has froggies and fishes and a pond. But it is also acceptable for us, and we can find grasshoppers and other cool toys which hide in all the flowers!

Wow! Not only is Figaro famous for being a Therapy Cat, I am now also famous! The template we modified for the Kitty Bloggy got featured on the template site! Check it out here. Cool, right?

You can see a screenshot of the screenshot!!!

I like to sit on the bar chair while Mommie cooks up something nice, and she gives me a tiny bits of the foods if I ask sweetly AND don't go on the countertop. Here are the 13 things I likes to eat that I bet other cats do not.

1. Popcorn - it is also funny to play with. I specially like Orville Redenbacker Natural Simply Salted Flavour. Usually I get one popcorn.

2. Ice Cream - I especially like Edy's Vanilla. Sometimes daddy gets Chocolate Chip and then I can only have some if the chocolate chips are picked out. It is very lickable

3. Cookie Dough - I gets to lick the plate when Mommie makes cookies

4. Carrots - I like 'em if they are cooked, they are very sweet.

5. Pasta - I like uncooked pasta, my special favourite is the kind with spinach and cheeses on the inside. I can usually have one piece.

6. Bread and butter. I really prefer Panera breads sourdough bread, but any bread is fine really. If mommie goes to Panera she brings me some left-overs.
7. Cheeses. Lately I have been getting a little bit of Sharp Colby from Vermont. Both me and mommie thinks it is very deli-cious.
8. Milk. I like to drink a little bit of milk, but a lot of kitties like that! Mommie doesn't drink milk usually so I don't get it very often.
9. Pumpkin puree. This is very good and actually pretty healthy so I can have some in the morning with my break-fast. It is good with a nice piece of chickens.
10. Skittles. I like to lick up a skittle all around until I gotted all the coating off. Then I don't want it anymore. I usually don't get one of these, only by accident if one gets dropped, because red skittles can make a BIG mess on white carpet if they are licked.
11. Toothpaste. For whatever reason I like to put the bitey on the toothpaste. I am not allowed to do this and I do not like mint flavours, except in toothpastes.
12. Same thing goes for contact lenses solutions and lotion. Sometimes those things get hided from me and I have to search for them. I am learning to open the drawers so I can be a better searcher. So far I did not succeed in being a good sneak about that.
13. Feet. I like to lick feet. I do not know why, I think they tastes very good. Of course I do not put the bitey on them. Usually I lick strangers feet to see if they tastes okay. Then I hide under the bed!!!

Perseid Shower

I normally do not like showers because I do not like to get wet but we really liked the Perseid Shower. My mommie woke up at 4 AM and of course I was already awakened, and she took me outside and we saw FOUR shooting stars. That is more than how old I am which is 1 and one-fifth years old. I very much like to go outside especially at 4 in the morning. After we got back in I thought we were going to get fed but that was too early so I had to wait impatiently until it actually got light outside for breakfast!

Also. Here are some updates about our toilet training. We are now using the inter-amber disk with the red disk underneath of it for Figaro. Strangely it is very hard for him to adjust to it. He really does not like to go so now he is only doing the #1 two times per day or even 1 time. Mommy has to make him. On the other hand, I am only using the inter-amber disk without the red disk underneath. This is too easy for me. If I was the only one in training, I would be moved up to amber right now! But we are going verrry slowly so Figaro will not have any accidents. He ALMOST had an accident on mommie's important files in the den, but she caught him scritching around and stuck him on the toilet!!

Remember when we said Figaro will be getting a birthday present from Uncle S. because of his $10 gift card? Well today I helped him pick out his present on the internets.

Here is what we are getting. There are a lot of mice because that is our favorite. Also - all the things we are getting is organic and natural. This is very good for the environment, better than our other miceys which are not organic or natural but we play with all of them anyways. They are from Whisker City. We gotted him some Wool Mice (pictured on the left), some Sisal Feathered Mice, and a set of small organic mice. In total I thinks we gotted like 9 mices for only $10.

That is pretty much a very good deal. I helped Figaro find a good deal of course. When they arrrive we are going to show pictures of us playing with them. I hopes they come before parents leaves on vacation so we can get them to help us postify everything on the internets.

My Decoratings - Furniture Friday :)

Hi Kitties,

Remember in June when I picked furnitures? Well, these furnitures have arrived and now I have a classy classy bedroom just to myself (and the parents and Figaro, but basically to myself, at least during the day!) It has lovely curtaions (from Ikea) and a modern furniture called Wenge Emily from ModernLineFurniture. I used my plastic over the internets and it came straight to our house and into our garage for the parents to unload! I am pretty sure that the parent's government rebate check will cover the costs. If not they wll just have to work a little bit extra. I am so thoughtful. Do you see the lamp on the picture here, it is from IKEA too. We likes that store.

Here are some photos of us enjoying this furniture. There is a comfy king-sized bed, nice nightstands that are perfect for me to curl up on, and of course a beeauutiful dressing table with a mirror. I sits up there and tries on mommie's jewelries.

You can see Figaro thinks he will be sleeping on this bed. In fact now he spends the whole day sleeping there while mommie is at work.

If you can click on the pic-shur you can see the closeups of our new window curtains. They are very beauuu-tiful.

All I needs is a nice soft microfiber throw in dark purple to match the curtains. Where shall I buys it? I did not see one anywheres.

Sad Kitty News in our old Hometown

In our old hometown where mommie and our Cousin Missy (she doesn't blog) useded to live, we heared about a very sad story about a kitty. It gotted swinged around by its tail and died! :( There is not much informations but you can read about it here. Poor kitty...I know its parents must be very sad about this. I am very sad even though I did not knowed that kitty.

Yesterday I was sitting by Mombean's foot and giving her licks. Her foot is always dirty.

I made the most hi-larious face and then Mommy took my picture.
I wants to caption this for I Can Has Cheezeburger but I have no good ideas.
Anyone wants to help?
