The Divine Ms. P: A lady knows when to show them and when to fold them.

Back to work Monday

The Princess Cinza: Dad is back to work after his four-day holiday weekend. That means we get Mom all to ourselves and we're hoping we'll have time to visit our friends on the blogosphere although Mom keeps talking about making lists and all the stuff she has to do.

What could possibly be more important than hanging out with us? Or napping?? (Mom seriously could do with a nap or two because we like to remind her of our divine presence during the night when she's trying to sleep.)

This picture is of a street menorah Mom took a few days ago and below you can see our menorah from last night.

Two surprises Sunday

The Divine Ms. P: Well colour me shocked -- in a good way.

I like the first meal of the day to be served nice and early, which is why I usually start my gentle morning wake up call between 4 and 4:30 a.m. (There's a reason why my humans feel like zombies all the time.)

Yesterday was day three of the Man's four-day holiday weekend. I was feeling generous and allowed him to sleep in a bit.

At 5 a.m. he woke up all on his own, got up and headed straight for the kitchen. At first I didn't bother leaving the bed because I've learned to keep my expectations to a minimum, but a few minutes later when I heard the right kitchen sounds I left my warm, comfy spot on my pillow and seconds later I was eating breakfast.

Mid-afternoon (again without any prompting), the woman got up in the midst of watching "Malice Aforethought" and fed us.

Perhaps my years of patient training are FINALLY starting to pay off!!! Then again, Christmas is over, so maybe it's a Hanukkah miracle. Or, it could be just a weird fluke because of the way the stars and planets were lined up. In any event, it was a good day.

Mostly cocooning Saturday

The Divine Ms. P: It's grey, wet and slushy outside -- perfect for a day indoors. We're going to watch films. As you can see I'm ready. The two remotes and the Man's glasses are sitting next to me on the night stand; all that's missing is the chips and dip and two sets of opposable thumbs.

I'm on my favourite pillow (before The Princess of Weird hogs it). I like the way the fabric shows off my divine furs.

Cinza: ZZZzzz...

Just chillin'

The Divine Ms. P: The man says the woman doesn't know how to relax.

See, this is how it's done.

Merry Christmas!!

Ms. P and Cinza: We have much to be grateful for, including this lovely gift from Zoolatry. (It's one of Mom's fave photos of us, so it means a lot to her.)

Being as we're two rescue kitties, we're fortunate to have a warm, comfy home with two people to torture and boss around (oops, to love and share our diva presence with), especially at this time of year when it can get very cold and so many animals are abandoned for one reason or another.

We wish a speedy and miraculous recovery for all the sick animals and people out there. We also purr for peace, healing and loving homes for the ones who have been abandoned and abused. And for everyone who lives with or works with animals (especially ones who are ill or have special needs), we purr that you will have the resources to always do your best even with the economy doing weird fish flops.

Cinza: Hey, enough of the mushy stuff, time for a game of cat and mouse. You can be the cat and...

Ms. P: Was everyone in your family weird or was it just you?

Ms. P doesn't wait for a response and walks away in search of a quiet place to snooze.

Weird Wednesday

Cinza: Everyone around here thinks I'm strange because I like to be chased. (At first my people thought I was skittish and might have been abused.)

Ms. P thinks my kitty mom forgot to have that important talk with me, you know the one where she'd explain that I'm a cat and I do the chasing, not vice versa.

But hey, I get a little bit of exercise and when I've had enough, I jump up onto the bed or on top of the kitty condo and wait to be petted (preferably petted with one hand, whilst being brushed with the other).

As long as I get what I want, I'm happy and all is right with my weird little world.

Two giggles Tuesday

Cinza: Sometimes when the litter box is clean I like to amuse myself by creating sand castles.

The other day I did it twice. Both times Mom went through the litter assuming I had done something. Both times she found nothing.

She mumbled something about me trying to gaslight her. I don't know what that means, but if it involves having fun, then count me in.

Happy latke season!!

Our slaves tried to get us to pose, but we refused after hearing there will be no sour cream or yogurt this year. We've heard rumours about mock sour cream made of tofu and the usual homemade apple sauce. Ick, that's not real food.

In a few days it will be Christmas, and we're hoping the almighty black cat goddess will intervene on our behalf and something edible (and therefore worth stealing) will be served.

We're not holding our breaths because blue is not a natural colour for kitties.

Another victory for the divas

No more sharing Mom's blog, we now have our own. It's ours, ALL OURS to do as we deem fit. Look out world because there's no telling what little furball we'll be sharing!!

Seriously amused will once again be Mom's blog and will be up and going in the new year. It will probably be mostly filled with her photos and incoherent, insomnia induced mumblings.
