Kat Diary: Since Shrimp went over the Rainbow Bridge

Hey there, peeps! 🐭

Twitchy Twilight here – I’m filling in for Shrimp – (since she went over the Rainbow Bridge)- she and I still communicate – because we kats can do that.

The human is (still) working on a very special post about Shrimp’s last days – But since she can’t take pictures of Shrimp anymore, she’s drawing the pictures she plans to use for the post…


That takes a lot of time, because she hardly has drawn at all since the big Creature was born, and especially now that she has a new baby Creature to watch also, there’s very little time for drawing. She is SO out of practice!


I’ve never seen the human so unhappy as she has been since Shrimp got sick. And when Shrimp died, it was very traumatic for her (Shrimp died in her lap). She cried so much her eyes were swollen and she couldn’t breathe. Even the Vet and her technicians had tears in their eyes!


So since then, I’ve been babysitting the humans and trying to help them smile again. And my mommy (human) has noticed I’ve been following her to and from the bathroom (like Shrimp always did). She loved that about Shrimp – and she gets sad when she comes home at the end of the day and Shrimp isn’t there waiting for her all bright eyed work her tail straight up and vibrating with joy!


So, I’ve been working extra hard to make her smile;

My human wants to thank every one of Shrimp’s followers for not abandoning her blog – even when she couldn’t post for days at a time.

And I thank you too, because if you keep stopping by, I can FINALLY take over Shrimp’s blog!! 🐭

Meanwhile, my human will keep on working on that post, and I’ll be here to let you see my cuteness every day!



Kat Diary: Twilight Times

Hey there Peeps! 🐭 Twitchy Twilight here!

A couple of days ago, the human got home from work and noticed that my cute glow -in – the – dark collar wasn't on me when I came inside for the day.

And then she saw all the burrs stuck in my fur- (oops)-

I didn't tell her where I'd been, but somehow she figured out that I'd gone to a stream nearby so I could go fishing and duck hunting!

I tried not to let her know, because I didn't want her to be upset that I didn't catch her a fish or a duck, but I think what gave it away was that my paws were wet, and when I hopped up onto the bed to clean all the burrs off myself, they were all left behind, and some I couldn't get to myself, so she combed them out for me.

That was so sweet of her, and then she went out right away and bought me a new collar!

Isn't it purrty?

It's white satin with a white velvet bow (and a shiny silver bell)!

It made me feel so special – because after she combed all the burrs out of my fur, and bought me the new collar, she cuddled me and gave me treats and played with me!

So when she decided to change the sheets on the bed today, I had to show her how happy I was by making sure to leave a fresh deposit of fur and burrs on the clean bedding – just to remind her of our special day, and to let her know I didn't forget.

I was very careful not to miss a spot, since the human worked so hard to get the bed all clean and fresh and smooth out all the wrinkles –

I mean, it would be a shame to let all that effort go unappurreciated!

Maybe tomorrow I'll bring her a nice tasty mouse or a dragonfly to say thank you.

But for now, I see that I missed a spot on her pillow – I have to share some of my fur so she'll sleep better tonight.

Goodnight! 🐭

Happy Father’s day!

Hey there peeps!

Twitchy Twilight here! Shrimp and I want to wish all you Dads out there a happy Father’s day- 

Thanks for all you do- especially for you Dads who REALLY understand what Fatherhood is all about- and for you Moms who are struggling to fulfill a Daddy’s role as well as a Mommies’ role. 

Thanks for all the times you play with your creatures (and pets) when you’d rather rest because you know they missed you and want time with you.

Here’s a Fathers day purresent I caught for  you all by my cute little self this morning- (in the HOT SUN-when I could’ve been snuggling with my human).


P.S. Shrimp isn’t good at catching mice, but don’t tell her I said that!

Movie Kat- And Big news coming tomorrow!

Greetings Humans! ðŸ˜º ☕️ 

There’s been so much going on around here, that I’ve been running my fluffy little tail off trying to keep up – 

The Albino Flea (Twilight)- is still driving me flippin nuts, but she’s learning my lessons really well. 

Fur example, rule #213 (Shrimp’s rules fur the Discerning Kat)…. 

“Whatever the humans are doing, always get right in the middle of it immediately.”

Notice how well she’s doing with this one:


How purrfect! She even eats their popcorn too!!!😹 (Don’t worry, the human never put artifical junk in it)- 

And she’s also getting quite talented at “fishing”- fishing ice out of her water and into the floor, fishing the human’s keys out of her purse, fishing meat off their plate, fishing socks out of the laundry,…. Mol! 😹

I’m teaching her really well!

I have a special lesson planned for her tomorrow – but the humans are going to be gone most of the day because they have big news to share tomorrow- (I’d better get busy getting Twilight working on tomorrow’s lesson) –

Stay tuned!😺

Shrimp’s Helpful hints fur “Newly Adopted kittens”

Greetings Humans. 😺☕️

Whenever a newly adopted kitten comes into a home already occupied by a (lovely, intelligent) resident kat -(like ME-fur example)- there are a few things that it needs to know in order to adequately express it’s appurreciation to its new humans. 

A kitten needs to remember that the new humans love to keep the house nice and tidy, and to keep its new humans happy, it should always be willing to help out around the house – like this :

🐾  Always keep your toys organized so you can locate them when you want them. The best spot fur this, is right in the entry way of the living room. This way, visitors can see how well you take care of your toys as soon as they trip over them. 

Another very important thing to remember, is that your new humans want to know you love them. 

🐾 The best way to demonstrate this, is by finding a purrsonal object of theirs that they use daily (something like their iPhone charger, wallet, or car keys)- and hiding them fur yourself. This works best if it’s something very expensive to replace – don’t worry if they get “upset”- humans are weird and often cry when they’re actually HAPPY! 


Another thing that will make your new humans purroud is, demonstrating that you are fitness minded. 

🐾 The best way to do this, is by playing ball in the kitchen while they’re cooking dinner -(that way, you can be sure they notice you)- This is even more effective if the kitchen is small and they are working on several things at once.

😺Bonus points if you make them spill milk on the floor, or drop a steak. 

Another important thing to remember is, 

🐾 The only reason humans buy DARK COLORED furniture is so that you can accent it with your fur. 

Humans are weird about wanting everything to match, so be sure to faithfully donate your fur on everything in the house to give everything that coordinated designer look they always want. 

They are especially grateful if you do this immediately after they finish vacuuming!

Stay tuned for more helpful tips later! 😺
