Caturday morning mania: It’s NOT Pon farr

No, I am NOT a Trekkie. The proper term is Trekker, thank you. That said, the playtime of Tito and Miss Jenny bears a close resemblance to Klingon foreplay. Pon farr? Not so much. Be aware, Tito is neutered and Miss Jenny is spayed. We are responsible kitty people. I figure that whoever wrote about the Klingons and their sex life had to have had a fascination with cats, big and small.

Jenny as Klingon
jIH dok !!!
Tito as Klingon
maj dok !!!

After the playtime and violence that occurs, this is the result.

Tito and Miss Jenny as Klingons
Tlinghan jIH !!!

Miss Jenny, as an orphan did not have a jinaq. Tito didn’t mind.

Ok, here’s a bit of humorous Christmas music. It may not be safe for work, so beware. This is brought to you by rathergoodstuff at Youtube.

Caturday: World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day. Today is a day for people around the world to come together in the fight against AIDS. In that spirit, Tito and Miss Jenny are wearing their red ribbons and encourage their fellow felines the world over to join them in the fight. If you are able, please consider a donation to help the fight.

You can read about World Aids Day here.

Caturday: The Neighborhood Watch

It’s Caturday. We survived the holiday the easy way. We did NOTHING. Ok, Lastech had to work, but you get my meaning. Yesterday we didn’t indulge in the Black Friday lunacy either. Instead, we went off and mingled with the tourists to get a few night photos that we’ll share later.

Here’s a bit of humor from Simon’s Cat.

And now for something mind numbingly cute.

Caturday: The rainy season has begun

The rainy season has now begun. It’s been raining since yesterday and it’s wonderful. It will turn our brown hills green and spring will bring plenty of wildflowers. In the meantime, it tends to make us lazy. Tito and Jenny are no exception. Here they are practicing being lazy. It’s what they do best.

Since we posted photos of the California sea lions at Pier 39, we thought you might enjoy this video from the Alaska SeaLife Center in Alaska. Cute doesn’t always come in small packages. Sometimes they’re big with magnificent whiskers.

Speaking of cute…or bizarre. Recently I wrote a post called Beware of cats bearing gifts. Today, I found this lol pic.

Caturday in the land of… OMG, where is the fog?

Hi folks. Actually the fog has returned, but it was an ugly and hot couple of days. This is normal at this time of year as we begin the change from the summer fog to the winter rain. While it was fine outside, it was a wee bit warm in the apartment for the furry ones. Still, we managed to get a pic or two.

Miss Jenny managed to find a cool spot to hide in. She only emerged in the evenings.

Tito tended to stay in the room with me, so I had another way to keep him cool.

Wet Tito
Here’s a wet and somewhat cooler Tito. I soak a washcloth and then wipe him down. He doesn’t mind at all, as you can see.

The fog has returned for the time being and we’re supposed to have a good rainstorm coming. Yahoo!

And now for a couple of bonus giggles courtesy of I Can Has Cheezburger.

Caturday Presents: A Birthday

On this day, many moons ago… Ahem, lemme try again. On this day, in the last century… No, not good. Ok. Once upon a time, this young princess came upon a frog…oops, wrong story. There’s no princess in this one.

Today is Lastech’s birthday. Since his birthday is in October, they wanted to dress up for the occasion and make a card for him. They did, and here it is.

Happy kitties

Caturday: The Evil That Lurks

Yes, it’s Caturday, but first things first. The proper pronunciation for evil in this context is the same as in the old classic horror films. Instead of pronouncing it as in the name Evel Knievel, it should be pronounced EEeee vill . The first half should be long and drawn out and the second half rhymes with bill. Got it? Good on we go.

Evil lurks in this house, erm, apartment. It has four legs and fur. It also has beautiful baby blue eyes.

basket kitties
Aw, isn’t it sweet and adorable? They love each other

Don’t let the fart monster’s beautiful blue eyes fool you into complacency. She’s evil.

Tito fear
I found Tito hiding in the bathtub with a look of fear on his little kitty face

Why fear? Well, he found this! [cue the theme to Psycho’s shower scene].

Evil Jenny

No wonder Tito is scared. I’m scared too. This morning I awoke to find her nibbling on my eyebrows. Then she farted.

So that you don’t have nightmares after that last photo, I’m including an adorable English bulldog named Porter. He doesn’t like his leash. It can be found on cobrakiel’s YouTube page.

Caturday: shelf monsters and pack rats

As anyone who lives with cats knows, they are mischievous, wicked, naughty, thieving little critters. Some, will steal your food like Kitsy used to do. His preference was bacon, but he would settle for pizza. Some are paper shredders. The Boober’s favorite was the paper towel roll. We used to have to hide the rolls in the cupboard.

Tito is the shelf monster. If it’s on the shelf, it won’t be for long. He’s an expert of knocking items off one at a time. This is quite disturbing at 3am. We learned the hard way that breakable items have to be stored away.

Tito wanted poster

This is what Tito is like in action. His nickname should really be Ruprecht. The important part begins at 3:55 minutes in.

Some, like Miss Jenny, love to steal various items from around the house and hide them in bed. She’s a regular pack rat. Trust me, you don’t go to bed in this apartment without going through the bedding looking for all the stray items. A ballpoint pen in the posterior is not my idea of fun.

Jenny wanted poster

This is just a small sample of the items found in our bed.

Found in bed: One sock, two corks, one mechanical pencil, one screwdriver, one broken clothes hanger, one bottle cap and one black plastic doohumflicky

Caturday: four legged Klingons

“And they call it kitty love…”

That’s where the cuteness ends: Jenny starts by kissing on Tito, they exchange a few licks, and settle down for a minute, maybe a few seconds.

The quiet before the storm

Then the wrestling begins. The headlocks and body slamming, what every Trekker recognizes as the Klingon mating ritual, somewhat different from the Vulcan mating ritual which also involves ass kicking, but of a Starship Captain.

Star Trek yourself
Someone could get hurt…

As I type this, for instance, Jenny is still greeting me home, dancing figure eights under the chair, pawing at my leg and grabbing my arm to rub against. With purring and claws. I’m already bleeding in three spots. I got bit. Not too hard but firmly.

I will show you a paper tiger
I will show you a paper tiger

Must be the Tortie (Tortoiseshell) in her, the little brute. As a wrestler, she has a very solid stance: wide with hind legs bent. We saw her more than once using this position to wrap Tito in an embrace before slamming him down. Then again, he gives as good as he gets, and even has her retreating often, though never for long. Never for long.

I’m bleeding from a fourth scratch now.

Jenny will also walk on my pillow stopping just long enough to nom on my skull. If I pet her, which I always do, she farts. If my wife leans over to nose bonk her, Jenny’ll cough in her face, like Carol Beer on “Little Britain”:

Her newest trick: not a cough, but a vurp (a burp which sounds vomitous). All I can say is thank Ceiling Cat she doesn’t eat mice. Things are gross enough. Annnnd, I’ve got an eighth scratch… Well, a puncture, more like… Still, I feel like one of Jack the Ripper’s playthings.

Caturday: Naps and Sunbeams

It’s Caturday again and time for our pointy eared people to have the spotlight.

Yes, Kitsy is far too thin in his photo. He was quite sick for a while. He’s eating better and slowly starting to put on weight.
