Lazy Weekends with Kitty.

As cat owners know, no matter what it is that their cat does, it's just as cute as it was the first time you saw it. This is very much the case with our kitty. She sleeps all day long, but no matter what, seeing her is just as new as when we first met her at the shelter. On the weekends, we get to see her basking in the sun, unless on weekdays, when we're off to work early and back late.

Waking up to Kitty.

Since we don't let Kitty into the bedroom (I am really, really allergic to her), we normally wake up to find her right at the bedroom door in the morning, screaming for breakfast. On the weekends, she loses hope because we sleep in, and hangs out on the sofa until we wake up. Since we live in sunny California, there is no lack of sunshine streaming through our windows each morning. Look at what we found on Saturday morning.

Kitty and the Brush.

Kitty hates when we brush her. Since she's so furry, we try to brush her weekly, but she hates it so much that she attacks the brush each time it gets near her. We have two kinds of brushes-- the Furminator, and just a regular cat brush. Kitty hates the Furminator. She growls and claws at us when we try to brush her with it.

I read that cats just love the Furminator, and that in some cases, they love it so much that they line up to be brushed with it. NOT the case in our household. The "brush" is really like a razor, I think. It just pulls out so much hair that it's hard to believe that it isn't painful. Her hair literally comes out in huge chunks, and it doesn't stop. It also causes a lot of static electricity, which makes her even angrier.

The Furminator reminds me of thinning shears that they use at the hair salon. I'm not sure what it's doing, but as long as you keep using it, hair just comes off in huge piles. It's nearly impossible to get a photo of kitty as she's attacking when we're using the evil Furminator, but we have a few pictures of her resisting the other brush. If we didn't brush her, she sure would be nappy.

Doggie kitty.

Bunnicula acts like a dog most of the time. She greets us at the door after a long day at work (she only comes to greet us if it has been over 5 hours), and she licks our hands and feet if they are close enough to her. Yum. Human feet. Pictures above show how lovey she is, and what we see when we open the door after coming home from work (these pictures are with my iPhone, so they might be a bit grainy).

Where is kitty?

More Stuff on Bunnicula.

I promise that we didn't hurt her in any of these photos.

Mouthful of Kitty Fur.

Kitty cleans herself obsessively.

Kitty Surprise.


Kitty spends a lot of time trying to get up from the floor. She's not really that fat. She's just really furry. When she stretches, her claws get caught up into the rug, and we find her wrapped up in it.

Bunnicula thinks Jon's legs are tree branches.

As soon as Jon sits on the sofa and stretches his legs out onto the ottoman, kitty takes the opportunity to lay across his legs like she's perched on a tree limb. She doesn't care that he already has his laptop on his legs. She just climbs over it.

No game playing for Bunnicula.

Kitty isn't interested in playing with toys. She'd much rather stare at the carpet.

Chicken Kitty.

Bunnicula is keeping her eggs warm underneath her.
