Caturday: Love is in the air?

Having love in the air is better than Miss Jenny’s farts, that’s certain. 🙂

There’s something missing from that photo though, and here it is:

Tito, Jenny and Titanescu
While not exactly lovey, Titanescu is sharing the cushion with Tito and Jenny. He IS trying to pretend that they aren’t there however.

This is a major step for our little grumpy Titanescu and it’s happening more and more. Our pointy eared people are spending more time in close proximity to one another.

Caturday: Bed hogs…I mean cats

As anyone with cats knows, they spend most of their time sleeping followed by going berserk for about ten minutes. Sadly, their manic moments usually occur at 0400 when we’re sound asleep at which point we become trampolines. As a result, it’s usually easy to get pics of them being lazy, but not playing.

Tito
Tito is now spending more and more time on the bed, rather than hiding in the other room.

Titanescu has such a funny look on his little fur face that I giggle just looking at it.

For your amusement (or horror) I now present a video by cyriak. It begins with cobwebs, but in true cyriak fashion, it ends up with a lot more and gets very weird. 🙂

Just in case the video creeped you out, here’s some cuteness to make the “ick” factor go away.

Caturday: It’s all in the eyes

Another Caturday rolls around and we’ve gone from having a heatwave to having a very cool spell. The pointy eared people are happier, at any rate.

This post is running late as Tito wanted lots of attention and it’s impossible to type around a cat with terminal elevator butt. Of course, he got a lot of scritches and pettings. As you can tell from the title, the theme is “eyes” today.

Here’s Tito looking calm and quite lovely

Lastech managed to get this photo by pretending to take pics of Tito.
Titanescu
Lastech took this pic of Titanescu. It’s amazing as Titan has his eyes wide open instead of half shut and looking grouchy. He really IS a handsome tyrant.

I couldn’t resist this vid by simonscat at YouTube.

Happy Birthday Lastech!

Today he is 49, so next year he hits the half century mark.  I can’t resist a dig as I’m going to be 52 at the end of the year. 🙂

For his birthday, I decided to take some photos that he took one night and play with them. They were taken with his phone, in the dark, and without flash. He came home with the first one and wasn’t fond of it at first. I played with it and showed it to him. He liked it and came home with a few more.

For Lastech with much love from me, Tito, Miss Jenny, and Titanescu

All photos are by Lastech and I call them Carousel Dreams

Here is the original photo he brought home. It was taken through the plastic sheeting that covers the carousel at night.

Caturday: New toys

Yes, there are new toys to play with. I’m not referring to the wonderful new toys that our friend Grace sent to the fur people. I’m referring to a couple of new photo editing sites that I’ve been using to make posters for the pointy eared people.

The photos below were made using PhotoFunia, a free site that is easy to use.

The new banner was made using a combination of PhotoFunia, Funnywow, and photoshop. Both sites are free. 🙂

Caturday: Fall has arrived…sorta

Fall is here. The weather is very confused. Summers in San Francisco are generally cold and foggy. Fall is supposed to be warm and sunny. Karl the Fog can’t seem to make up his mind if he’s coming or going. The other day at the beach (previous post) it was sunny but very windy and cold. We got so sand blasted that I was pulling sand out of my ears. Tonight, Karl returns and tomorrow we may have rain.

The weather isn’t consistent, but the pointy eared people are. They’re consistently strange, sleepy, or cute. Take your pick. 🙂

Tito
Tito: I will play with you and play with you and then I will put you in the bathtub.
Jenny
Miss Jenny: Sssluuuurrrrpppptttthhhhh
Titan
Titanescu: Не прикасайся ко мне!

And from ShoKo (Shorty and Koko) at Youtube, you have this video proving that cats are strange. 🙂

Caturday: Heavy equipment edition

My mad housekeeping came to a screeching halt this week. I was being careful not to terrorize the pointy eared people too much, but the addition of heavy equipment next door made that impossible.

backhoe
This is the view out my kitchen window

Missing from the pic are the huge dump trucks. Due to some major water main and sewer main replacement in the area, they have been bringing dirt in and taking it back out. The dirt is full of concrete chunks and makes awfully loud crashing noises when it’s dumped in the truck. Most times, the truck is parked on the street out front for loading. That pretty much puts it under my living room window.

Miss Jenny despises the dump trucks. When they’re parked out front, she growls continually until they go away. Then she runs and hides.

After the equipment shuts down for the night, Miss Jenny tries to crash the laptop by sitting on it.

Tito hasn’t gone to hide, but he won’t let me get more than a foot away from him.

Since Tito won't sleep while it's noisy, he makes up for it after it goes quiet.

Titanescu is unmoved. He just doesn’t care.

Titan didn't like the noise, but it didn't bother him too much

It wasn’t quite as musical as this.

Caturday: Lazy critters

Before we show off the pointy eared people, we want to give a shout out to all our friends in the flood zones of Colorado. We are fervently hoping the rains end soon and that there are no more losses, human, or pets. There is a Facebook page where they are posting pets lost or found in the flooding. I’m unable to post a link, but it’s called Colorado Disaster Wildfire / Flood Lost & Found Pets.

Another Caturday has rolled around and the pointy eared people are being lazy as usual. There are times when I really envy a cat’s ability to nap all day. I’m still on a massive cleaning and reorganizing binge, so I’m not around as much these days. I’ll be back eventually.

In the meantime, I’m busily cleaning around the fur people. I’ve managed to do it without bringing out the evil sucking machine. I’ve even made it a point to move furniture in slow motion so that they don’t go deep into hiding for hours, if not days.

The pointy eared people got gifts today!

I’ve been off doing a MAJOR cleaning and organizing of the apartment. I was doing the super boring job of sorting paperwork for filing when the mail arrived. HOLY WOW! It was gifts for Tito, Miss Jenny, and Titanescu sent by a wonderful woman named Grace.

This post is for Grace.

Titanescu helped with the opening of the box. He says the noms are wonderful.

Tito loved this mousie toy too. He was also tossing the balls in the air and catching them. He stopped when I grabbed the camera.

Thanks again from ALL of us. Hugs for you and scritches for your fur people. 🙂

Caturday: Summer has arrived

Summers in San Francisco tend to be cold and foggy, but all that changes in September. Karl The Fog goes on vacation and the days are sunny and warm. While fall is beginning to arrive for many, summer is just getting started here.

This week, it’s downright hot. Now I know our temps are nothing like we would get in the desert. However, we don’t have air conditioning and we have huge picture windows that get the western sun and heat the apartment up like an oven.

The fur people are NOT amused. We shall survive and they will too. I give them rubdowns with a wet washcloth to keep them cool. Tito and Miss Jenny like it. Today, I’ll try it on Titanescu. If I survive without being smacked around, I’ll let you know. 🙂
