Cats Can Play With Tennis Balls Too!

My mom has been trying to get some good action shots of me playing with my "tennis balls", but I run really really fast, so sometimes I am just a blur. Here are some memories from my old house of playing with "tennis balls". We had a good long corridor there so I could get a good running start!

I have a blue "tennis ball" that I like a lot......

.........but my green "tennis ball" bounces the highest!

The green one makes me run the fastest! I am very quick and light on my toes!

I have a yellow one also, that makes me run really really fast too.

Ok, so I have about 10 of these "tennis balls". I like them all a lot!

Misty says: Silly JB. "Tennis balls" are for dogs. Why do you always act so crazy?

(JB's mom here......I don't know why, but JB has always loved running after "tennis balls" and she still does at 8 years old! She is a dog in a cat suit! I just wish I could teach her to fetch, so it would not be so much work for me!)

Look What I Got! (Part II)

Look what I got! And this is after I already got my SmartyKat Scratch Scroll! Mom got me this tower too! It has a platform on the top so I can see what is going on around me. It has a hole to climb down to another level that is good for......

......taking baths! I wash myself a lot here.

I can get really clean on this level of my tower.

Then when I am done with my bath, this level is also really good for napping!

Mom says that I have to use the scratchy parts on this tower, or else! She put it right near our new luxurious sofas.......uh, so I have a couple different pieces of furniture to choose from....right, mom?

But Mom, It is So Luxurious!

This is one of our new sofas. When we got it delivered, I had to immediately go and snoopervise. I found that it felt very soft under my toes. My daddy says that I can not put my toes on it. He says if I do, I have to get declawed! He says I wrecked all the old furniture and I better not do it to the new stuff!

So, mom let's me come and sit on the new sofa, but I have to sit on my pad. I am a good girl.

But while daddy was on a trip yesterday, guess where mom found me? I made a fort under the pillow of the new sofa! It was the perfect spot for a nice afternoon nap, so do you blame me?

What mom?

You want me to come out? But this is so luxurious under my toes! Please, can't I stay, just for a little while?

The Little Stinker

........continued from my last post.

Here is PooPoo now. She has been sequestered to a bathroom after the PooPoo explosion. She does not seem to know what all the fuss is all about.

PooPoo says: "Mom, why are you putting me in this room by myself?"
Mom said:
"PooPoo, you are a bad girl, and you stink, and I can not have poopoo all over the new house!"

This is PooPoo's new pad. Please note that the brown mink style bed has been already been removed because PooPoo peed in it! Mom had to replace it with another freshly laundered bed.

You can already see from just a day or so, that PooPoo has soiled the towels, if you look closely.

Mom is at her wit's end with PooPoo. Does anyone have any suggestions for us? We have Feliway pheromones plugged in the room with her. Or someone mentioned Rescue Remedy, which we have not tried yet. But mom thinks the issues with PooPoo go deeper, and PooPoo might just have a screw loose!

PooPoo says: "I just don't know what all the fuss is about. So I stink a little bit. Isn't that allowed when you are 14??"

All is Not Well at Our New House

I finally got my mom to do a post for me. She has been so busy from the move and even had to fly to CA for a job interview yesterday! We are still settling in and here are some pictures from about a week ago when PooPoo came home. As you can see, it looked like all would be ok, and mom was very pleased with us, including PooPoo.......

Misty was a little bit scared and she still likes to hide under the treadmill! Sometimes I go under there too to keep her company......

PooPoo lounged around, glad to be out of jail!

Misty was confused and did not know where she lived any more......

Strange things started happening.....Misty started a workout program!

And what was even stranger? Misty and PooPoo sleeping this close to each other? What is going on?

......But then, slowly, all of the newness of the house wore off......PooPoo started acting up again, and she committed more crimes! Mom came home late last night from the airport to find that "our room" had a PooPoo explosion....PooPoo had soiled 3 of our beds and made many messes around the room! Ooooh, mom was mad!

To be continued.......

Home at Last & JB's Gotcha Day!

Greetings, to all my friends.
I just wanted to let you all know that we are all ok, and we are now in our new home! Misty and I got here Saturday night and were put in a room so we would not get too scared. I was still a little bit frightened to peek out of the room when mom opened the door!

Slowly I got more and more brave.....

Maybe I should go see what is down this hallway? I think a good snoopervising is in order.....if I am not too scared.

PooPoo update: PooPoo came home Sunday night and was put in our room with us. I will write about that next. Mom is still super busy unpacking, and we hope to get caught up on everyone's blogs very soon. We miss you all!


Oh, and before I forget! August 13 is a very important day for me! Today is my GOTCHA DAY! My mom adopted me on this day 8 years ago! Thank you, mom!

I love my mom. She takes care of me.

PooPoo is Coming Home From Jail on Sunday!

News flash! PooPoo gets to come home from jail on Sunday evening! Mom went by the jail to tell her the news this morning, and got the usual Tasmanian Devil reaction......from the top shelf of her double condo (uh, jail cell).

PooPoo said: "Why did you leave me here so long, mom?" Why? WHY?

Mysteriously, PooPoo's arthritic affliction seems to have vanished while in jail. Could it all have been a sympathy act at home before? So, uh, the double ground floor condo was not necessary?

PooPoo ran out of her cell when mom opened the door, for her usual brushing that mom gave her on each visit. PooPoo did not want to show it, but I think she is excited to be coming home.

*32 Days in jail in "double" condo = $692
*Gas for 26 mile drive round trip each jail visit = $6/visit
*Feliway pheromones to prepare for PooPoo's return home = $42
*New cat tree for comfort when sequestered in own room when return home = $150
*Unlimited swats, hisses, scratches, and just plain mean looks = Priceless
*There are some things money can't buy,....for the rest there is MasterCard.

Anxiety & Stress

Hi, it's me, Misty talking today........There are some odd things going on at our house. More stuff is being moved out. Something is definitely amiss! AND, my anxieties are kicking in. Maybe I should go join PooPoo behind bars so I will be safe?

Silly JB. She has been sitting on that SmartyKat Scratch Scroll waiting for mom to play with her ever since mom brought it home!
There are more important things than playing at a time like this! I am SO anxious!

Something is amiss! Oh dear.....my stress level is nearing its limit!

Look What I Got!

Well, after the slimy hairball incident, I did not think I could get back on my mom's good side. Misty and I tried to tell mom that from behind bars, PooPoo must have contracted another cat to do the dirty deed, but mom did not buy our story. But then guess what? Mom bought me this!

It is called a SmartyKat Scratch Scroll. Mom must know how smart I am! Mom bought it for me, but she said I MUST learn to use it, or else! I am not sure what she means by that......something about "how much money we have wasted on furniture only to have to bring it to the dump", and "you better not ruin the new sofas we have coming for the new house!".

What is this? Something is underneath my SmartyKat Scratch Scroll!!!! Mom, mom, it is a FEATHER!

Smells good. Sniffs nice.......very nice aroma.

Tastes like......chicken!

I approve of the SmartyKat Scratch Scroll! But I am not sure what the brown scratchy part is for yet.

Here I am using my new SmartyKat Scratch Scroll. It is sort of like a hammock on this side. See mom? I am using it.....just like you wanted me to!

We Are Innocent

We got in BIG trouble yesterday.

Misty: I didn't do it, mom, she did it!
JB: No, I didn't do it, SHE did it!

Somebody must have broken into our house and threw up this slimy hairball before they left.
It was not us! We are innocent!
