How to always get me out of bed

Just recently, Hero started squishing this kitty tent, because it’s apparently really comfy like that.

And because Lisa copies everything Hero starts doing…

Lisa is also squishing the tent now to make it a bed!

It’s so funny! Lisa copies all the little shenanigans from Hero as well.

Hero figured that he will always make me get up and out of bed, if he tries to climb the curtain in the bedroom. He knows that no matter what, I will always get up when he does that. I have to, because I’m too worried that the curtain rail could come crashing down on top of him.

Once I get out of bed, he comes running towards me to give me a big head bonk and a cuddle.

Naturally, Lisa learned from her brother and started doing exactly the same thing 🀣

I’ve got to laugh… The way in which they do it is amazing. They start off, as if they want to climb the curtain, having at least one paw clawed into the curtain. Then they will look at me, with every move they make, to see how I react. It’s obvious that this is totally to get my attention and make me get up.

Just little shenanigans like that. They’re really good kitties! Sometimes they just want me to get up earlier.

Kitchen rolls vs Lisa and Hero

Alternative link to the video on our Odysee Channel

I had just feed Sonic on the bed, when Lisa took the opportunity to get the kitchen roll lying next to me. He absolutely loves having a good fight with kitchen rolls and she always wins!

A few days ago, we saw this in the hallway to the bedroom…

Hero was sitting nearby… But

He had nothing to do with it of course.

Both little rascals absolutely love fighting with kitchen rolls. Honestly, if I was a cat, I would do it too!

First snow for Hero and Lisa

During the night from December 2 to the morning of December 3, it dumped about 3 or so inches of fluffy snow on us. Unfortunately, our balcony only got what little the wind blew onto the edge, due to the other balconies above and a roof. Hero and Lisa were amazed nonetheless!

Before I opened the balcony door to let them out, I had my phone ready to film their reaction:

December 3, 2020 Hero and Lisa experience snow for the first time!

Of course I have a few adorable photos too!

Hero and Lisa “What is this?!!”

And this is what it actually looked like outside

Can you believe that it’s now a year and more than 1 month that sweet Hero and Lisa came into our lives? They are thriving and happy!

Samantha is doing really well! These days, she loves to cuddle up in the rocking chair next to the heater with her beloved catnip cushion or she hangs out by our desks, watching what we’re up to on the Internet.

Sonic has a new basket, which we actually put on our bed. He loves it! As does Lisa. She regularly cuddles up with Sonic in the new basket. Hero will then often cuddle up to the basket on the outside.

The black blob are Lisa and Sonic. But I don’t know where one starts or the other ends🀣 I took this pic in the dark with flash, so I woke poor Hero up…

Sweet boy’s age is noticeable. Not by his great blood results and still healthy organs, but he’s sleeping a lot and slower. I just want him to be nice and warm and comfy, as well as close to us at all times. The only worry is his digestion, which is slow. So he’s getting extra fibre and drops which increase the digestive systems activity a bit. It works great! Though he does have days with problems, especially if he got into Samantha’s kibble for a bit. Regarding getting to her food, he can be real fast!

I’ll stop for now, since it’s almost midnight and I am getting real sleepy!

I’ll write another update tomorrow night, about a bunch of things, and the changes that are happening and about how I’m increasingly concerned about the economy and our freedoms.

I hope you and your furbabies are all well! Love to you all πŸ’– and purrs 😽 😽 😽 😽 πŸ’•

Late night post ;-) and update about Ralph’s blog

First off… Ralph deleted his blog. He felt better that way, because it was wearing on him that his blog is online, but he can’t blog anything himself.

Although I saved his complete blog. I exported the whole blog through WordPress and imported it into a new private blog on my WordPress account. It’s there, 100% complete with all the comments and everything in a fully functional blog, just private. It could be posted on again if Ralph and I find something that reduces or cures the shaking of his hands due to Essential Tremor.

Just wanted you all to know that we’re fine and everything is alright. You can always reach Ralph through my blog and email address, or his email address. Ralph also always reads the comments on my blog posts.

It’s in the middle of the night

It’s past 2am and it’s raining. We’ve had a thunderstorm come in every afternoon since Monday. The rain that started this afternoon is of the ‘constant nonstop rain’ variety. It’s nice to fall asleep to, but not so nice when the kitties want to hang out on our balcony catio all day in the sun and warm weather.

Earlier, Ralph and I were watching a movie and sweet Sonic joined us, cuddling up between us on the couch.

Now, the kitties are all asleep. They were really tired, after playing all evening.

Hero and Lisa started to party early in the day, by getting into a valerian root pouch that they ripped to bits. Then they rolled around in the mess of strewn about valerian root bits on the carpet 🀣 They were all silly and happy from it and having a really great time!

There’s always so much to post about… countless pictures and updates on how we’re all doing. Since that’s accumulating all the time and makes it a huge post in the end, I’ll just try to post often from now on. Just our every day life sure keeps me busy… Ralph could tell you about that and all my silly shenanigans when I am absent minded because I get distracted by cute cats…

So for now I will go to sleep, and post again tomorrow.

I hope you all are well! Stay safe and cuddle your kitties and loved ones πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜½πŸ˜½πŸ˜½πŸ˜½β£οΈ
