Guarding The Tree

The day after Bob and Monika put up our Christmas tree, I found one of the balls on the floor and showed it to Bob when he got home from work. Since then I have been trying to stay close to the tree as much as possible to make sure no kitties try to steal the balls again, but one of them has managed to sneak while I was eating or using the facilities twice and taken one down. Last time Bob put the ball up higher in the tree, so hopefully no kitty can reach it easily.

Clever Pet

Look what Bob did. He has his own blog now, and he likes posting stuff like this on it.

He said he found the original picture on icanhascheezburger.

Spoil Sport

Last night I was in a playful mood and I came into the computer room, then peeked around the door frame and got my back feet running so that when Frostin came around the corner I would be able to surprise him and chase him through the house. As soon as he came into the hallway I charged straight at him and you know what he did? He just laid on the floor in front of me!!! I was so shocked I almost crashed into him. That spoiled my fun, so I just went into the computer room and laid down too.

Clever Prince

That Frostin sure is clever! He decided it was time for treats, so he went into the kitchen and knocked some dishes together to make a racket. Bob snapped awake and said; "What the heck was that?" and then proceeded to put his shoes on to go investigate. Monika got up a few seconds later and they both went looking all over the house. They checked the windows, the plants and everything they could think of and Bob finally noticed that the plates were crooked.
After he found out what woke him, they were awake though so he gave us our treats and he and Monika got on their computers.

Belly Toll Revesited

I thought you all might want to see what my belly toll looks like, so I asked Monika to take a couple pictures for me before she paid it.

Early Morning Belly Toll

This morning I greeted Bob just outside the bedroom door with a belly toll. I love getting my belly rubbed.

How Does This Work?

Yesterday morning after Bob went to work I found one of the toy mice and decided to see if I could figure out why the other cats like them so much. I picked one up and carried it across the room, then jumped up onto the bed with it, but it didn't do anything. So I laid it back down at the foot of the bed and cried to get Monikas' attention, so I ask her what I was supposed to do with it. It took her a couple of minutes to realize that it was me crying because I have never cried like that before, but when she did I looked at her then the mouse and back at her and asked her how it worked and you know what she did? She picked it up and through it across the room! Now I'll never know how to play with it.

Computer Room

I have finally started going into the computer room. I still don't go in there with the other cats for treats, but if Bob and Monika are both in there, I will come in and lay on the floor to be with them.

Sleeping next to Bob

Last night, when he was getting ready to go to bed, Bob brought me into the bedroom and put me on my comforter. I didn't stay on it long, but after he fell asleep I snuck onto Monika's side of the bed and curled up to sleep next to him. When he woke up this morning he saw me there and gave me good morning cuddles.

Scary TV

Last night Bob put the TV on the animal channel and left it on for us to watch while he was on his computer. Most of the time this was OK, but at one point while Bob was taking a kitty break and giving me pets a noisy dog came on and was barking so much that it scared me. Bob hugged me and said it was OK. That the bad dog was only on the TV and it couldn't hurt me. I'm glad Bob was there when it came on. I would have felt silly if I found out that I hid under the bed from something on the TV.

Looking For Monika

Yesterday afternoon, after Bob gave us our treats, I went into the computer room looking for Monika. Bob was in there checking his emails, but when I looked around I didn't see her, so I turned around and left again. Later when she came home I jumped onto the couch so that she could give me attentions.

V-e-t Revenge

They went and took me to the v-e-t last week. I came back with a clean bill of health, but I was mad that they brought me there so I didn't let them have any belly tolls all week. But I was missing the belly rubs that come from them too much, so I finally gave them one this morning.

Asbestos Exposure & Mesothelioma in Pets

Bob got a email from the Awareness Coordinator at and thought you all would like to see what it was about.

Here is the second paragraph;

"In order to help better educate pet owners on asbestos risks, we have created a pets-specific section on our website. This section covers how pets can be exposed, what symptoms they may exhibit and how to prevent exposure. I was hoping to either request a link to our site and/or contribute free content for publishing on your blog in an attempt to raise awareness."

Click here to see more about this important issue.

(From Bob(I also added a link under links of interest.))

Hurt Paw

Last week I hurt my back paw some how and I didn't want no one to touch it, but Bob and Monika gently checked it and I raised a big fuss. Monika said it looked like my claws were gone, but it was just because my paw was swollen. She checked again the next day and she could see them. It still bothers me a little now, but I am letting them touch it as long as they are careful.

Computer Room

Bob saw me sitting outside the computer room looking longingly at him and Monika, so He picked me up and brought me in to sit on his lap. He gave me pets and told me that I could come in the computer room when ever I want and that the only place we kitties weren't allowed to go into was the garage. At first I was a little fussy, but as he kept petting me I slowy calmed down and started to enjoy it. Then when I get tired of pets I went and laid on the phone stand for a while before leaving. I'm still not completely comfortable in the computer room, but I wasn't in our old home computer room for a long time either.

Fun with Frostin

I was feeling a bit kittenish last night so I snuck up behind Frostin and gave his tail a light swat to get his attention and then ran off. We chased each other all over the place. I like playing with Frostin and Munchkin, they are both a lot of fun, but Ashlyn is usually too timid to play, and I don't like Obsidian because he tends to try to make me his girlfriend. I would have invited Munchkin to join Frostin and me, but she was in Bob's lap. He is her favorite pet.

They're Back!

All of us kitties really missed Bob and Monika while they were gone this weekend. King Obsidian and Prince Frostin were all pouty, and Queen Munchkin and Princess Ashlyn tried playing hard to get, but they realized they wanted attentions too much to stay away from our humans. Myself, I just laid on the new couch and let them take turns sitting with me and giving me attentions.

Life at Our New Home

Black Cat asked if we are settled in our new house. Yes we all love it here. Now if we could just figure out how to get our pets to stay here instead of having to go to work all the time. The first week we were here Bob staid here with us and was straightening out everything to make it look more like a home. I enjoyed that a lot because he was always there if I wanted attentions. Now he is at work half the time so all of us kitties get lonesome. I asked him if maybe him and Monika could go to work at different times, but he said that they used to do that and they only got to see each other for a few minutes on the days that they both worked and that they like being able to be together every day much better.

Our Chair Is Back

Monika just found our folding chair and put it in the computer room for us this morning. We've all been taking turns sitting in it when we are not exploring.

Wandering Prince

Frostin is finally coming out and exploring though he still seems to like being close to our pets. He also seems to be facinated with the mirror doors in the bedrooms. It is nice to see him roaming around in the house and checking things out. I missed him while he was in hiding.

More Moving News

Bob and Monika are still working on getting everything put away, but it already looks like a home in here for the most part. Only problem is that all the stay cold stuff is in coolers because the compressor in the refridgerator died just before they started moving in. The Landlord is buying us a new one on Sunday and then our kitchen will be back to normal.

They Took Me With Them!!!!

Last night Bob and Monika started putting more stuff from the apartment into the car and took it away and then came back and started taking more stuff, but before they were done Bob's friend came over and they put Queen Munchkin, King Obsidian, Princess Ashlyn and I in cat carriers, then they put the last of the stuff into Bob's friends car and Monika put Prince Frostin on his leash and brought him out of the apartment so that Bob could lock it up.
We rode around in the wheeled monster for a short trip and we all serenaded Bob and Monika all the way there. Then when we got to the new house Bob unlocked the door and Monika started bringing all of us kitties into the house and letting us out of the carriers. King Obsidian, Queen Munchkin, Princess Ashlyn and Prince Frostin all ran and found places to hide, but I started exploring my new house right away.
Later everyone started coming out and exploring a little except for Prince Frostin who remained hiding under Bob and Monika's bed. After a while Monika brought him into the living room and gave him some cuddles, then he started to do a little exploring of his own.
When Bob and Monika went to bed I climbed onto the bed with them and found a new place to sleep. I curled up at the top of Bob's pillow near the corner and went to sleep there. Bob gave me pets and said he liked my new sleeping place and then he went to sleep.
When we woke up this morning Frostin was hiding under the bed again so Monika pulled him out and gave him cuddles and then when she put him back down he went and hid in the tub. Poor baby. I think he is more afraid than I was.
I'm so glad that Bob and Monika took me with them to our new house.

Indignant Princess

King Obsidian has an annoying habit.

When ever Bob gives us tuna he will finish his and then stand watching me eat mine and try to intimidate me into leaving it for him. This makes me nervous and angry both so I let my nerves loose a little and cough up a hairball all over it on him. I've done it twice now. You would think he would have learned the first time.

More Moving News

Monika took all the covers off of the bunk beds except for the cover on my favorite pillow to wash them and get them packed. I'm glad she left my pillow alone. I would have had to whap her if she took it.

Breathing Room

Monika closed us all in the bedroom and when Bob let us back out all the totes and boxes were gone. There's room to breath in here again, and they didn't leave us forever.

I Can Talk Too

Get a Voki now!

Saturday, March 29, 2008


They are still buying boxes and totes and filling them up with stuff. They changed the futon on the bottom bunk back into a couch to make more room to store all the full bins. Makes it a little harder to get to the top bunk and lay on my favorite pillow, but once I am there it is also harder for Bob and Monika to come and bother me when I am trying to take a nap. I have decided that they can pack all they want as long as everything stays in the apartment. When stuff starts disappearing I will decide if I need to be worried again.

Nervous Princess

I started getting real nervous yesterday because I realized that Bob and Monika are preparing to move and I was afraid I would be left behind again, but they both gave me bunches of cuddles and assured me that they would take me with them.

Friday, March 21, 2008

Smart Pet

Bob picked me up yesterday and I was all ready to start snarling because I do not like being held when he put me on Monika's computer chair and sat on the floor next to it so he could give me hugs and cuddles without holding me. I liked that so much that I rubbed foreheads with him and even purred a bit.

Lap Time

Last night while Bob was on his computer I laid next to him with my belly up to get some attentions. He came down and gave me belly rubs and then he picked me up and put me in his lap at the computer and gave me more cuddles. I staid in his lap for a while as he played on the computer, but I decided I don't like the computer as much as I like TV so I got down.

Snuggles With Bob

Last night while I was on the top bunk Bob reached up to give me pets and I decided I wanted some snuggles so I asked him to pick me up. This made him very happy because I usually do not like to be held. I only staid with him for about 3 minutes, but for me that is a long time.

V-e-t Day

I had to go to the v-e-t for my anual check up yesterday. It wasnt too bad except for when they stuck the thermometer in my butt, and when they took a fecal sample. I'll have to ask Max to teach me how to poop at will.

I Got Tuna!!!!

Bob gave the other kitties tuna water with a little tuna in it and then came to give me cheese because I have problems with some seafood, but I gave him sad eyes and reminded him that King Obsidian does too, but he is OK with tuna. He decided I was right and gave me a little tuna to try. It was yummy!


Now I just hope I don't get sick from it.

Nickname Meme

I got tagged for a nickname meme by The Zoo.
Here are the rules for the Nicknames Meme:
Post a link to the kitty who tagged you, and post the rules on your blog. List your real name, how you got your real name, nicknames you like/tolerate, and nicknames you wish your humans would stop calling you. Tag several kitties, and write a comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.
My real name is Boots. Bob named me boots because I have white feet and the white goes up a ways on my back feet so it looks like I have boots on.
Nicknames I like include Bootikins, Pretty girl and Sweety.
Nicknames I don't care for include Fussybutt, and Bad girl.

I Like My Claws This Way

This morning Bob was giving me snuggles at the bottom of the bed when he woke up and Monika was giving Munchkin cuddles. Then she told Munchkin that she needed her claws trimmed and mentioned that I do too. Soon as she said that, my ears went back, I snarled at Bob and I left. She sure knows how to ruin a cuddle.

Cousin Yogi Hanging Out

This is another video of our cousin Yogi. She's a little camera shy so she tends to stop all activity when Bob gets too close with his camcorder.

Cousin Angel

This is my cousin Angel. She is starting to get used to Bob. She used to run away if he got less than five feet away from her.

Bob is Magic

Monika was trying to catch me for cuddles last night and I ran under the bottom bunk to hide. Then Bob touched it and it turned into a couch!?!? I didn't know Bob was magic. I'm going to have to keep an eye on him.

My New Toy

Bob and Monika game home and then went out to buy groceries. While they were out they bought me a special new toy. It's a ball of yarn with a couple of loose strings on it and something that rattles inside. I love yarn. It is the first thing I started playing with when I was learning to play.
