First of all, I am really excited to welcome some great friends of mine to the blogosphere! I introduced them last week, and now Sen-Chan and Tom have their own blog, The Pouponette! Visit it to see all the fun they are having, find out what a Poupounette is, and see all of their beautiful pics!
I was a little bit confused when Ms. C took my favorite place to lounge away, the table in-between their two desks. She said something about "painting the ugly thing," whatever that may mean. But as you can see, she kindly placed a temorary table between their desks and put a nice, soft cloth on it for me. I think it really sets off my stripes:
But do not be deceived by that pose of repose. I have many games to play each day, each of vital importance. Some, like this example of Catzilla, I like to play with Mr. R:
This morning I was up very, very early with the crazies at 4am. I viciously attacked those monsters under the bedcovers. Mr. R tried to calm me with some corporal cuddling. Just what is corporal cuddling? Ms. C has located (but had nothing to do with the creation of) a fun and educational video concerning this topic:
When the corporal cuddling failed, Ms. C decided to just do the right thing after all and get out of bed. I followed her, and while sitting in the chair next to hers, discovered that my tail was getting out of hand!! You can see here, I almost Got it:
Never fear, even though you see my claws viciously extended in the previous pose, no harm came to any tails:

I am generous to my guests. I'm going to let him hang out in my favorite spot with me:
Adan, is it really you? Maybe I will be able to tell by your scent:
We quickly fall to the floor, rolling around, kicking and biting. This is fun! I am so envious of Lego who gets to live with you and pounce on you! Except...
No! it is not Adan! It is an unknown intruder-cat and I must defend my territory against it! Oh my goodness... this little toy is a freak! I was showing it who was Boss and all of a sudden it made a horrible, awful, scary noise. Worse than any thunderstorm, of which I am not afraid! I ran away (Ms. C: When you squeeze it, it plays "Oh Christmas Tree").
I will conquer my fear of that intruder soon. I wish it had been the real Adan.

You need to be able to accomplish a spinal-180 in order to do it. If you are not sure what that is, then take another glance at which direction my feet are going (front vs. back feet), or just ask your local feline. Following that, I often stand up, stretch, and sleep in the other direction for awhile:
And then back again. I'm really asleep now, very deep:
Here is a close up, I don't want you to miss a single important aspect of this position:
Just to make sure you really understand how deep a sleep can be accomplished in these ways, check out this video:
And finally, I often switch to the table in between Ms. C's and Mr. R's desk:
I really need to have the proper energy always ready in order to ambush Ms. C on the stairs, or to have a proper bout of the midnight crazies. Practicing these important elements of my days is the surest way to become an expert!

PLEASE chase me!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

“When I first met him at the breeders, he was already coming down with cat flu, so he wasn't feeling great, but he immediately knew what he wanted. He climbed onto my lap, and up my arm and to my face so he could give me lots of cuddles. This propensity for dishing out love is still, months later, one of his most endearing characteristics. He uses his paws, his head, and of course his tongue, to show his affection. And it's not at all limited to me. Anyone who crosses his path is treated as a potential best friend, and that includes all dogs!”
And as you can see, Sen-Chan really loves and cares about his “brother” Tom, the Spaniel. They play and nap together:
Like all of us kitties, Sen-Chan loves to stalk, chase, and play with his toys. Here is one of my personal favorite pictures of him, playing with the late Mr. Bun:
Unfortunately, Tom has a bad habit of stealing Sen-Chan’s toys (including Mr. Bun!) and chewing them to death. I am sure he just wants to share in the fun, but doesn't he know you can’t play with something once you’ve eaten it!?
In spite of this toy-stealing, Sen-Chan and Tom are devoted to each other. Ms. V writes that Sen-Chan “tries his best to keep Tom tidy and grooms him vigorously although the task is almost impossible. The two love to chase one another and often sleep curled up together.” I sure wish I had a pal like that!
Sen-Chan is so energetic that Ms. V has to feed him about six meals a day! If he's like me, I bet he wouldn't mind more! You can see just from looking at his pictures what a sleek, muscular, beautiful boy he is!

Anyways! Tomorrow is going to be a super fun day because I am going to be featuring a friend of mine, who you may have already had a glimpse of in the comments. He has 2 ears, 4 paws, claws, and whiskers too! I'd have done it today, but Ms. C is a little bit under-the-weather and I can't hold on to any whip to crack it on her.
See me saving you from the evils of the sweater-shaver:
I guard carefully and we sniff each others' noses, and come to a mutual understanding:
I type for you:
Is there a cord in your way? Let me get it for you:
Finally, I keep myself impeccably clean. I am sweetly scented!

There are many places in the house that must be explored each day. I make new discoveries all the time. I've only been in my new home just over a week now, so you can't blame me for not yet knowing every nook and cranny of my home. But I shall! As you can see here, it takes some effort now to fit my growing self under the drawers of Ms. C's desk:

In the meantime, I would like to share with you my favorite new resting places. Ms. C rearranged her desk and places a special piece of fabric beside her desk for me, as you can see. The positions are quite favorable:
I have really taken to sleeping in this spot. I can stretch out, and keep a close eye on Ms. C at the same time. Ms. C was laughing with Mr. R and saying "She's not going to fit there forever!" I have no idea what she means. I can fit almost anywhere.
I am always ready for my close up:
Finally, to the left, when I need to groom, I have a special piece of fabric that is very comfy and perfect for me. Ms. C thinks I look "vulture-like." Do you??
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! I know I am going to with Ms. C, now that she is giving me some tuna.

Supposedly this is supposed to clear the parasites out of my guts. But I don't appreciate it when they capture me and make me swallow the little pill. Yesterday it was just awful. It tasted so bad that I foamed at the mouth. Today, it was bad, but Ms. C coated it in the slippery, yummy-tasting butter and I did not foam. In fact, right after that she fed me some tuna!! It took that horrible taste away. I love her.
I also like to sleep in the same place with Mr R:
I also enjoy stretching to my full-length when I sleep on the couch:
It makes stretching my toes easier. Where are your favorite places to sleep?

Maybe you can see it in the picture above, but there is a furry mouse in the top level of the condo. I just discovered it today when I went to hang out in the top cubby for the first time, and the mouse and I had so much fun battling it out up there!
It's a great hidey-hole, and I have a clear view of both Ms. C and Mr. R when I am inside. I've also developed some new hobbies, including cursor-killing. I think a lot of you other cats might have known about this exciting game for a long time! I only do this on Mr. R's computer, and he assists me.
Ms. C has been giving me small spoonfuls of wet food today! Oh, I was so excited. As soon as she returned from the store and I heard the cans clanking together on the counter, I ran to the kitchen and let her know in my loudest (but cutest) voice that yes I am a very good cat and definitely deserve this treat! I may not care about regular treats, but wet food is another story. Ms. C said something to me about the vet finding a parasite in my bowel movement, and that I would soon be getting my medication with this wet food, but I am not concerned for now. As long as that wet food keeps coming!

Now, I am ready to PLAY!
I know I look vishus. But no claws were used in the making of this movie and no humans came to any harm. So please don't call the SPCH. At the end, I see a bug flying around so I have to go get that instead.
I am a very inexperienced cat when it comes to deer. Why are they "Vishus Deer?" Ms. C thinks they look like food with legs. I agree.
PS. Thank you for the tip, Parker. I now feel a little more informed about the bloodthirsty vishus deer, and have alerted Skeezix to this incident of their multiplication!
