Why do I love cats???

August 15, 2008 at 2:06 am (Cats, Uncategorized) ()

A lot of people wonder why I love cats so much.

At work I have quite a few cat things around me and I am pretty much known in the office as the crazy cat lady.

Firstly, I would like to say I love ALL animals, but cats just happen to be my favourites.

Why do I love cats in particular you ask?

Well, I love big cats because they are the perfect predator on land, and until man came along they were no doubt on the top of the food chain. For this they certainly deserve respect. They manifest the ultimate, to me, in power and beauty. They are perfectly suited to their habitat yet still have to struggle to survive and raise their young.

I love domestic cats because they still in quite a lot of ways do the things their big relatives do but in a smaller way.

I love that they are independant and that they can\’t really be trained. (A bit like me haha)

I know a lot of people are down on them particularly here in Australia where they have been blamed for the extinction or near extinction of several indigenous species.

But it is not the cats fault. It is the owners that abandon them or don\’t get them fixed that are to blame and it is in the cats nature to hunt and that isn\’t their fault either.

Anyway, mostly I love the soft fur behind their ears and their big round eyes. And the tufts of fur between their toes. And their little noses and whiskers. And the way their furs shines in the sunlight. And the way they purr when you pet them.

They know when you are down and they will spend more time with you.

Apparently it has been scientifically proven that a cats purr is partly a healing sound. This could be why they purr when they are in pain.

So that is why I love cats. But most of all I love my cats.

Here they are on an old quilt on the couch. That is about the close as they will get to each other. They don\’t really get along.

Thats all for today.

Love Me xxxxxxx

Crazy Fluffybutt…

June 8, 2008 at 4:41 pm (Cats, Uncategorized)

As most of you may know, I named this blog after my cat Fluffybutt.

I don’t really know why I did that, I just thought it would be cute and funny and easy for me to remember.

Anyway, at the beginning of the year I filmed her biting chunks out of a polystyrene box and spitting them out until nothing was left except the bottom of the box.

Finally I put all the bits of the video together and so I present –

Fluffybutt: Cat Sculptor (Also featuring guest appearance by Truffles)

Enjoy cat craziness!

Truffles and the tale of her mousey conquest

March 29, 2008 at 5:08 pm (Cats) ()

1206835717-hr-3560

Last night I was sitting watching tv, getting ready to turn my lights out for an hour when all of a sudden I hear a yowling coming from my dining room.

I turned around and saw my little Truffles cat with a limp lifeless grey body hanging from her mouth.

So I got up and went into the dining room, she had taken the poor creature under the dining room table and was proudly displaying her kill to me.

Not really wanting a dead thing in my dining room I tried to get her away from it so I could throw it away.

But Truffles became like a beast, she conjured up her inner wild cat and was growling and hissing and did not want to give up her kill.

So what to do I thought. I called my neighbour, Ian, and asked him to come over and try to help me.

When he arrived Truffles became even worse but he did manage to at least chase her out onto the back deck with her dead thing.

There she stayed for the next hour, first of all tossing it high up in the air, trying to bring some life back into the poor thing so she could play with it for longer.

Then the meowing started, there she was looking at me through the glass doors, all I could see where her big eyes and this little wet mangled furry thing hanging from her mouth.

She looked so funny. But I said to her she wasn\’t coming inside with her prey.

Later it disappeared. Did she eat it or dispose of it else where in the backyard, who knows? I just hope I won\’t step on it when I am hanging out the washing.

Ms Fluffybutt’s Outing…

March 11, 2008 at 3:09 am (Cats) ()

1205230168-hr-3484
So this morning as I had my breakfast with my girls, I noticed that Fluffybutt was limping and was having difficulty jumping from place to place.

As she walked she growled when she put weight on her foot and was more cranky than usual.

I worried about her during the day and told Pam about it.

So she said that if when we got home she was still like that she would take us up to the vet to get her checked out.

Well when we got home she was sitting in the trailer in the driveway and wasn\’t keen to jump out and was a bit unsteady on her feet when she stood up.

I picked her up and put her on the ground and Pam and I looked at her and she was still limping.

I called the vet and she said we could come up straight away.

It was really tough getting Fluff into the cat carrier and she meowed all the way up the road.

We got to the vet and went into the surgery and got her out of the cat carrier.

And we put her on the floor and all watched her and she wasn\’t limping anymore!

The vet examined her, took her temperature and did all the routine things but couldn\’t find anything wrong with her.

All through the examination Fluff behaved so very well and didn\’t worry as the vet prodded and poked her. The most cranky cat you ever knew was suddenly the most well behaved lady. Except she was shivering, poor little thing.

The vet decided to give her a painkiller and told me just to watch her and see how she progresses.

Well $118 later we came home and now she is limping again. But she is much more relaxed and settled.

Hopefully it is just a soft tissue injury and she will be better soon.

I will keep my eye on her and keep you updated.

 

Love Me xxxxxxxx

 

P.S. Photo of Fluff contemplating how beautiful she looks in front of the purple curtain.

Today Something Much Cuter….

February 29, 2008 at 3:38 pm (Cats) ()

1204328312-hr-3432

Fluffybutt\’s new special place. This is where she likes to sit in the evenings if she can\’t sit on my lap.

Makes it a little hard to use the computer!

But she looks so cute sitting there.

She is really a funny cat. She can be ever so grumpy but then ever so affectionate.

Truffles on the other hand is not affectionate at all, although I wish she was.

She will sleep at the foot of my bed or next to me but she hardly ever purrs, and she doesn\’t like to be petted too much.

Fluffybutt on the other hand loves to be petted and purrs like crazy and likes to sleep on me.

Funny the way they just have their own strange little personalities.

I guess that is why I love them so much and they are so special to me.

Anyway they are always there. I am thankful for that.

Love Me xxxxxxxx

Naughty Truffles ruined the blog I was going to write today…

February 2, 2008 at 5:07 pm (Cats) ()

1202000836-hr-3314

then I wrote another and 360 lost it all!!!!

Well, now I have to write this story all over again.

The last couple of weekends I have been to a kind of $2 shop and bought a few really funny things. You know where its made in China and the name is really silly because the english isn\’t quite right.

Anyway, I was just about to take photos of them to post, and went to where I had left them, only to discover that they were wet!

Yes you guessed it, my little precious had peed on the plastic bag these things were in.

So most of the things got a little wet. One of the things was the only one I could find in the shop and so hilarious that I have to salvage it. The other few things were only $1 each and there were lots so I can go back and get some more.

Therefore no blog about funny packaging today.

Just a blog about my naughty Truffles!

She has a bit of a history of peeing in strange places.

One night she peed on me. I was lying on the couch with a blanket over me and she jumped up on my stomach and I though she was going to sleep with me and then I felt a warm wet trickle and realised she had peed on me. That was just over a year ago so she was still pretty little though.

She has been known to pee in the dust pan.

Once she peed in a glass salad bowl on the dining room table.

Why she occassionally does this I do not know because she does have kitty litter that she does use when its raining and can\’t go out. Like today.

She does have a \”thing\” about plastic bags though.

The worst thing about this morning was, that where I had put the bag of things was next to my handbag on a cane lounge so everything kind of got peed on. The lounge cushions, my bag, a few other things… and now the house smells like cats pee! YUK!!!

Well looks like you will have to wait a while for my funny products blog.

Meanwhile if you haven\’t seen engrish.com you should have a look. Its great for a laugh.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Love Me xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

P.S. How could I be angry with that cute little face for very long?

Stowaway kitten takes U.S. plane ride in a suitcase

MIAMI (Reuters) – A kitten survived a plane trip halfway across the United States after accidentally ending up in a suitcase, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.Seth Levy\’s suitcase, in which 10-month-old tabby Gracie Mae stowed away, was mistakenly picked up by the wrong person after a 2 1/2 hour plane trip from Fort Lauderdale in Florida to Dallas-Fort Worth airport in Texas.But the man who took the suitcase called the kitten\’s Florida home and spoke to Levy\’s wife, Kelly, of Palm Beach Gardens, and agreed to hold the cat until her husband could pick it up, the Sun-Sentinel newspaper said.\”Hi, you\’re not going to believe this, but I am calling from Fort Worth, Texas. And I accidentally picked up your husband\’s luggage, and when I opened the luggage a cat jumped out,\” Levy recalled the man telling her on the phone.(Reporting by Michael Christie; Editing by Doina Chiacu)

My Crazy Fluffybutt…

January 12, 2008 at 11:51 pm (Cats) ()

1200210686-hr-3236

Just after xmas my friend Pam took me out to my mother\’s old house so I could collect some things from there I had left behind.

I brought back the things in a polystyrene box.

I put the box down just inside my front door on my big theatrical trunk and left it there for a few days.

Well, Fluffybutt decided she was going to be a sculptor and started biting off big hunks and spitting them all around.

Every time I tried to clean up the bits, she would bite me, so I left everything there for a couple of weeks.

Finally she had wittled it down to only the base of the box!

So here she is when she first started and then a bit down the track.

I have videos of her actually in the act so I will put together a little movie and post it in the near future.

She will also do the same thing with paper, straw hats, sticks and cardboard

We used to joke about hiring her out to the government so she could shred confidential documents for a living. hahaha

Oh and don\’t worry about her. I don\’t think she swallowed much of it, she is fine and I finally threw it away when she wasn\’t looking!

For all my new visitors that don’t know…

Fluffybutt is my grey cats name. I named my blog after her because it was cute.

Truffles is my black cats name. She is younger than Fluffy.

I love them both.

They are my little comforts at times when I feel blue.

Since I told my partner to leave Truffles has been sleeping on his pillow. (see photo and she hates having her photo taken)

What a cutie.

If you have pets, enjoy in their beauty, love their funny little personalities and take comfort in their gentle natures. Never be cruel to them. They don\’t deserve it.

Animals are wonderful. I love all animals.

If we didn\’t have them what would the world be like?

 

Love Me xxxx
