Above and Below

One of Max's very rare awake moments! Look how displeased he looks. :-D



Remember that today is Tummy Tuesday over at Lisaviolet's diary! Here's a picture of Sebastian's tummy when he was just a wee kitten. Everytime I see this picture I laugh. Look at the size of his ears! He looks like he's about to take off at any moment! :-D

ZZZZZZzzzzzzzz.......

Things have been hectic around here recently and so I haven't been able to take as many photos of my cats as I woul like. And sadly I just don't have the time to regularly keep up this Chat Katze blog. :-(
I'll still try to stop by the blogs in the cat blogosphere every now and then though and will post a picture every now and then here too.


Fortunately, things haven't been at all hectic for Max or for that matter any of my other cats :)

In fact, it's just the same old, same old sleep all day, sleep all night routine for them. They never get tired of that routine so they're all quite happy and content right now.

Wordless Wednesday...sort of


Grrrr!!!

My ISP, Cable & Wireless, is frustrating me to no end. I've been having problems with them for over a month now and it doesn't look like the problem will be solved any time soon, so my catblogging is going to be somewhat intermittent for now and I might not be able to reply to your very kind comments or to check your blogs as often as I would like to. :-(
I think Cable and Wireless should think seriously about changing their name to "Incapable & Worthless!" It would be more fitting.


Life can be truly frustrating, can't it? Aren't you glad you have cats to come home to? :-D

Man Cat Monday and a Tummy for Tuesday


I love this shot of these two slackers! :) Life must be grand when all you have to do is eat, sleep and look cute!

For more adorable kitties showing off their Tummies for Tuesday, make sure to stop by LisaViolet's Diary. And don't forget to pay a visit to Gattina and the other Cats blogging on Tuesday!

Weekend Cat Blogging with Sasha

So Sasha absolutely loathes the camera. She only has to see it and she's off in a hurry to...I don't know where. She does not want to be anywhere in the vicinity of the camera. She's not afraid of it, she just doesn't like her picture taken and will do anything to avoid me getting a proper shot. She'll come and rub herself against my leg so that all I can get is a back shot, or she'll turn her head right or roll over just as I press the button. :-/
So you can imagine my surprise when I took out the camera and she jumped up beside me and sat while I snapped several photos of her. She just sat there giving me a look that said, "Make sure you take enough pictures to last you a lifetime Miss, cause you ain't getting any more of me after this once in a lifetime opportunity!"

And then, once she had enough of the flashy box, she did her get-up-and-walk-off thing.
I think, though, that she did have someplace to get to in a hurry. You see I know she didn't want to be late to board the Friday Ark over at the Modulator and I know she really had to go get all cleaned up for this Week's Weekend Cat Blogging over at "Sher's What Did you Eat?" and the Carnival of the Cats over at Mind of Mog. Ooo! What fun this weekend! :-D

A Red and White Tummy Tuesday

Tuesdays are Tummy days over at Lisaviolet's Diary and this Tuesday is a little sad for LV as she had to have dear Red euthanised on Sunday. I love red cats but have only ever had one. His name was Gin and he died three years ago. He was such an adorable sweetheart.



And here is Sebastian showing off his tummy for Tuesday. Sadly, this little boy went missing (again!) two days after we had a hurricane pass through the island. This was about two weeks ago. He was scheduled to be neutered that very week, but because of the damage and lack of electricity, the vet's office was closed and the...ahem...procedure was to be rescheduled. I don't know if something happened to him or if he's just out chasing girls. :-\ I'm really hoping the latter is the case. We'll see...

Man Cat Monday with Max



It's so relaxing to just sit and watch Max do what he does most and does best : SLEEP! He's an expert at it. He does it anywhere, anytime, and it doesn't matter how noisy or how quiet it is. He sleeps curled up in a ball or straight out, on his back or on his tummy or on his side. He doesn't care that Sebastian will sometimes come and sleep right on top of him. He doesn't care. I'm sure if he absolutely had to, he'd sleep up side down or standing up! :-D
Of course he gets very angry when, while he's enjoying his favourite...er...activity, Sebastian comes along and decides to start ...uuhhhmm..attacking his tail!

Weekend of Silence & Remembrance


So many of our friends in the cat blogosphere are going through a very hard time with illnesses, deaths and missing kitties. So Kashim & Othello (who are hosting Weekend Cat Blogging this time around) have decided to have a Weekend of Silence and Remembrance in honour of our beloved friends who are no longer with us.

Wordless Wednesday with Sebastian

Man Cat Monday




What? You think I can't lift that? Ha! I scoff at you. Those weights are so light that I won't even bother lifting them...but rest assured that I could lift them with an elephant atop them.

Just look at this body. How did you think I accomplished such a toned, chiseled...manly body?

Weekend Cat Blogging

Max & Sebastian NOT drinking out of their water bowl


Our momma's very busy this weekend cleaning up after the storm. Gosh these storm things really are messy and leave a lot of work behind for others to clean up! I sure hope we don't see anymore of them this year!


Stripe

But even though she's pretty busy she still found time to get us ready to board the Friday Ark # 153 over at the Modulator and she's still gonna sign us up for this week's Weekend Cat Blogging! Yeah! This Weekend Cat Blogging is being hosted by BellyTimber.

Wordless Wednesday with KC

O.k. so maybe not exactly "Wordless" Wednesday :)

A hurricane passed through Jamaica over the weekend so I've been offline for a while. We just got back electricity last night. Internet service was down all day today and has only now just been restored. Hopefully by next week all should be back to normal for us here on the North Coast of the island. The South Coast, which was harder hit by the storm, will take longer to recover.

This was what KC did during the three or so fours when Hurricane Dean passed through.

It's Friday! It's the Weekend!

Yeah! It's the Weekend! And so it's time for another Weekend Cat Blogging, Carnival of the Cats and time to Board the Friday Ark No. 152 over at The Modulator! This Weekend Cat Blogging event is being hosted by Catsynth and Carnival of the Cats will be over at Stranger Ranger on Sunday.




Remember the Blue Bowl? That very bowl that Sebastian always loved to curl up in to sleep ?


Well, last weekend Sebastian broke the bowl. *sigh* He was in the bowl sleeping when something startled him. He jumped out of the bowl, pushing it off the table and it...broke. :-(

So now he just sleeps on the table with Max or sometimes he climbs on top of me and curls up in my lap. :-D

Tummies & Toes Tuesday

Today is Tuesday and that means lots of happenings in the cat blogosphere.

Over at lisaviolet's diary you can get your fill of soft, furry tummies today while Gattina and the other Cats on Tuesday Bloggers are telling us all about the antics of their lovely kitties.



KC & Max have decided to show off their tummies and their toes today...but they're not in the mood for any hard core partying. They've committed to continue their daily ritual of training for the "sleep your lives away" marathon!

BJ on Man Cat Monday


Such an elusive little boy this one is. I hardly can get a shot of him. As soon as he sees or hears the camera he freezes, turns around and jets out of there.

SPLASH!! Cat overboard!

Sebastian fell off the Friday Ark into the ocean!!

...well, o.k. ...what really happened was that he got a little carried away and jumped off the Ark and landed in a ...well...he landed in a fish pond! :-D

Yesterday evening I heard a SPLASH outside my window. Then a thud. Naturally I immediately thought to myself, "Oh yeah. Sebastian has something to do with that."


As I went to investigate, I saw Sebastian coming through the window dripping wet doing that funny little walk cats do when they're wet. You know the walk? Two steps forward, left back leg shake, one step forward, front right leg shake, two steps forward right back leg shake...He had apparently fallen into the Fish Pond outside.

He looked a little surprised and embarrassed to see me standing there staring at him. So under the bed he went and refused to come out for me to dry him off. In a little while he was out again, still kind of wet, but a little less embarrassed. Besides he was curious about those furry toys I was shaking at him.


Well he's all dried off today and has boarded the Friday Ark # 151 over at The Modulator.
But this Weekend none of us here at Chat Katze will be partying. We're too saddened by the heartbreaking news over at "What did you Eat?".
Our friend Sundance was diagnosed with FIP and was so very, very ill that his mom, Sher, had to make the very difficult decision to let sweet Sundance go.

Sher & Upsie are hosting this Weekend Cat Blogging and on their page is a wonderful tribute to our dear friend Sundance.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to Upsie and to Sher at this very difficult time.


Good bye sweet Sundance, goodbye.

Oooh Presents!!


So yesterday I got a notice to collect a package from the Post Office. Well, imagine my surprise when I saw that the package was coming all the way from Vienna, Austria. But whoever could be sending me a package from Vienna? Why, Astrid, Kashim & Othello!

You see, back in June, Kahim & Othello had a "Cutest Kitty" contest as a fundraiser for Megan's Elijah rescue, and Sebastian won the contest!


Well we were all so excited as we opened the package and saw all these wonderful prizes!


Sebastian promptly checked each and every one of them out and then grabbed one of the black furry toys and ran off to play with it.


He played with them for the rest of the evening. In fact by about 8:00 last night the white furry toy was no longer furry!

Thank you soooo much Astrid, Kashim & Othello!! :-D

We just wanted to take Time Out this Tuesday and

I'm too sexy...

When I looked at this picture of Stripe, I immediately thought of this song by Right Said Fred ? Anybody remember it? :o)

"...I'm too sexy for my shirt

too sexy for my shirt
So sexy it hurts


And I'm too sexy for Milan
too sexy for Milan, New York and Japan


I'm a model you know what I mean
And I do my little turn on the catwalk
Yeah on the catwalk, on the catwalk
yeah, I do my little turn on the catwalk..."

So let's celebrate by boarding the Friday Ark over at The Modulator! And don't forget to stop by

Heart broken

Oh my darling baby Sebastian has not come home for a day and I fear some dreadful thing has befallen him. He has never stayed away from home for any length of time before. He has not been neutered and so I can only hope that he is o.k. and has just gone wandering after some female. But this hope is so very weak. He still acts like a kitten in many ways, takes chances and has no concept of life preservation.

This is the last picture I have of my darling Seb as he stretched out with his best pal Max one evening.

I am utterly heartbroken :-(

Tummy & Tails for Tuesday!


It's Tuesday, which means that Lisaviolet's Diary is featuring lotsa nd lots of tummies today! It's also the day that Gattina and those other Cats on Tuesday Bloggers tell us all about their cute, wacky kitties.


But today BJ and KC wanted to show off not their tummies, but their tails.


The only time these two can be seen this close to each other is when they are hungry and there is food before them both. Once the hunger has been satisfied it's almost as if they suddenly realise how close they are physically to each other, they give each other nasty looks and growls and one of them will usually walk away with a hiss! :-D


Max, on the other hand, has no problem showing off his tummy this Tuesday!
