She likes to lick the inside of the fridge....

Haruka's birthday!! part 1

A year ago today, we brought Haruka home from the shelter. A lot has happened since then.... I'd like to share some various pictures taken recently of her, including some with her birthday toy! I have a video for it, I just need to load it onto my computer and add some music :) Until then, KITTY PICTURES!!


I can't remember if I put her in there myself.

Ninja cat ears!

The more things change....

...the more they stay the same!

Like me taking forever to update this. Like the cats fighting. Like the cats.... snuggling?

They still fight; they still get all kvetchy and aggravated with each other, but we see more and more of THIS happening:

This happens at least once a day. Usually, they'll lay down, face each other, and start 'making out,' or grooming each other. Todd and I both think it's the most ridiculously adorable thing we've ever seen.

It certainly beats them fighting... which still happens, at least once a day. I guess you just have to take the good with the bad!

This reminds me--I need to update the logo for the blog since Chloe has arrived. Perhaps I will get on that....within a month or two ;)

Haruka's odd behavior.

And when I mean odd, I mean ODD. Lately, she's been aggressive towards Chloe twice a day (in the morning, and then in the evening, around the times she has her spazz attacks). She will run up to Chloe, hop up and put a paw around Chloe's neck and try to bite her. Other times, she's shoved her face in Chloe's butt and bit it (seriously).

To add to this, earlier this evening, she did a #1 and a #2 on the cat mat in front of one of their litter boxes. Is she angry? The box wasn't super-dirty. The mat is a week or so old (we had to replace the old one as it was getting shredded).

Of course, I also noticed she apparently chewed an LED light off of a strand I had around my office window. I have no idea when she did that, as I didn't notice until I took it down. Other than these crazy moments, she's fine. (I haven't noticed any problems associated with said light-eating, either.)

They have no crazy new food, they're still fed at the same times, but . . . Haruka is going batshit crazy! Any ideas? I mean . . . I've never really seen the whole biting-the-butt thing. Chloe was none too pleased. :(

Christmas with Haruka and Chloe!

It's been about a month since I posted--been busy getting stuff together for the holidays. We bought Haruka and Chloe some new toys for Christmas and would like to share a video of them playing with them sort of half-assed-like.

We all hope you're having a spiffy holiday season! Here's to potentially more kitty blogs in the coming year!

Snot. And cats.

Today, another example of sleeping kitten-cats on lofts and furniture.

This is a fine specimen. (Although it makes her head seem very itty-bitty compared to her fuzzy butt.)

The Chloe-monster has become temporarily legless on Todd's chair.

She's the shape of a rubber duck!

Anyway, I have a question. Chloe's got the snots. She's had a URI before, and if I'm not mistaken her other mother said that it could be something she has to live with (but isn't contagious). She's snorking at times, trying to get rid of her boogers. Sometimes, they dangle out of her nose :( It's tough seeing her so uncomfortable at times (the boogers bother her, but she's still playful and eating and such). We have powder medicine for her, but I was wondering if there are any kitty versions of nose spray available? I know I could look this up on my own, or call the vet, but I figured I'd give it a shot here. We both have wonky work schedules this week, and our car is in the shop until Friday. Borrowing the granny-mobile, but it has bad tires and is leaking something, so long distances/highway travel isn't a good idea at the moment. Bah!
