Shrimp’s Back Porch Report

Greetings Humans!😺☕️Yep – you read that right. Today my report is from the back porch.

We are surrounded by wildfires, and the air around here is thick with smoke – no one is going outside – even the creatures! The human didn’t let me or Nut Bucket stay out either after she took this picture – she’s worried about the smoke affecting our lungs. This has been going on fur days. I’ve been bored out of my cute little mind – so I’ve even started playing with the Albino Flea!

That is, until she makes me mad…

Then she goes to the kat tree and starts pawing at the human to make her play and to get her sympathy! (Spoiled brat kat)!

Of course, the human always feels sorry fur the little flea…

Until she gets a look at my angry eyes glaring at her, then she decides the little furry brat had it coming!! 😹 MOL!

This is how the moon looked last night –

It looked bright red orange fur about the first couple of hours (before the human thought to take a picture)- and the color didn’t come out very well with the iPhone camera – but every night lately it’s looked like a creepy Halloween moon – and the air is thick and heavy.

I miss going outside and showing the neighborhood kats who’s boss- but there’s no way the human is going to let us out again until the air clears- so I’m going to be teaching the Albino Flea some manners meanwhile – let’s hope she learns quickly!


Monday Creature Feature!

Hey there, peeps! 🐭

It's cute little me – Twitchy Twilight!

I've been running all over the neighborhood trying to keep up with the Creature and the little grabby thing and help the human watch after them – man, do they keep her busy!

The little grabby thing is learning how to eat something that doesn't come in a bottle now, and some of her favorite foods are Blueberries and pears –

When the human feeds her, she'll usually eat whatever she's given, but whenever she gives her pears and Blueberries, the grabby thing opens her mouth wide and strains to bring her mouth to the spoon –
and then grabs the spoon right out of her hand! 😹

So, she painted herself and the kitchen and the human in Blueberries and pears – and needed a bath!

She had so much fun!

And of course, the human had to stop everything and take pictures!

Isn't she cute- (for a human)?

And these are pictures of them playing outside together:

They always have fun – until the grabby thing cries – then the Creatures also starts crying!

But the Creature loves to cook with her Parents, so she gets distracted easily from her crying!

Look at her kitty apron!

I wonder if she can make Fancy Feast?

Creature Feature 

Hey Peeps! Twitchy Twilight here! 🐭

The humans are all excited that the ittiest bittiest Creature can sit up all by herself now – (if you sit her up she can stay up, but she can’t pull herself up to a sitting position yet)!

She was purrty excited about it too – until she saw she had to eat asparagus, sweet potatoes and prunes for lunch instead of the big, fat baked potato (with butter and shredded cheese) that her sister was eating.

But she got over it purrty quickly (that is until the ice cream truck comes around)- because she’s all purroud of herself for being able to sit up without support – and she’s taking advantage of it!

In fact, she takes advantage of it so much that she wears herself out! (And the humans rejoice)! 😹

As for me,  I’m going to hide so I don’t wake it up – (that thing is LOUD)! 🙀


Monday Cattitude

Greetings Humans! 😺☕️

Well its Monday again- and I’m not feeling very cheery today because the Human is going to be spending the day with the Creature and its baby sister, spoiling THEM instead of cute little me.

See what I mean? 

And all because “it’s summer now and school’s out!” 😾 Well, MAKE IT START AGAIN! 

Twitchy Twilight and I want our human here (Creature-less) all day to spoil us and play with us and she just WON’T co-operate!

That means that not only will Twitchy Twilight and I have to entertain ourselves today, but when the human gets home, all we’ll hear about its how “darling” the littlest creature is. 

Oh yay.

Wake us up when it’s over!


And the Paper Wars rage on…

Greetings Humans! 😺 ☕️ 

Twitchy Twilight still just doesn’t get it – she has it stuck in that that triangle shaped head of hers that all this nice, fun paper is just fur her. 

Even after all my discussions with her! I think she thinks that if she ignores me long enough, maybe I’ll begin to think she’s right – the little flea brain!

Every time I pounce on the paper to entertain myself, here comes that little Albino Flea out of the flippin woodwork to try to run me right off it – but I’m not going anywhere! 

Look – I mean just LOOK at how she tunnels inside the Paper and tries to hide so she can scare me out of it! But I can always tell she’s there -just lurking under the surface…

And when the human tries to play with me, out pops that little white head and she plows right into my path like a flippin BULL!!

And the next thing I know, the battle’s -on again to defend my rights to MY PAPER!

–and my TOYS, and my treats, and my human!

Hey – I have an idea! Maybe I can stuff her into a suitcase and pack her off fur “summer camp!!” 😺

I’m sure they have one in the North Pole … 😼

Twitchy Twilight’s Frustrating FURiday 

Hey there peeps! 🐭 

Twitchy Twilight here – boy, yesterday was so frustrating for me and Shrimp! (But worse for me)!

It started out great at first – the humans were both off and human #2 left early for a doctor appointment, and I knew when I saw human #1 sleeping past 5:00 am that it had to mean she was going to stay home with us today, and I was right!

She played with us as she had her coffee- and we loved having her here spoiling us – but we didn’t understand why she refused to let us out – even though we both gave her our most pathetic cry of desperation (at higher volume than usual)…

Then, I followed her into the kitchen where she had the window open, and I noticed my carrier was out and she picked me up to put me in it when I heard a really loud ROAR and all of a sudden something fell out of the window just as she had put me in the carrier – and I got so SCARED! 

It sounded like the house was falling apart! At the same time, the wind slammed the bedroom door and I started crying – but instead of taking me out of  the carrier, the human took me out to the car in it – in the middle of a WINDSTORM and pouring rain!

Guess where we went? That’s right – the VET!

The human has made the appointment last week because she had noticed my gums were red and inflamed and my ears had felt hot for a whole week. I also found out I had to get a leukemia Booster!  🙀

The wind outside was even worse and I got so SCARED I had an accident in my carrier and Mom didn’t know it until they took me out -(oops)!

The vet checked me out and said I’m very healthy and that my gums are “within normal range” since I’d just finished teething – so my human was relieved and I was too – until they clipped my claws and gave me a shot!

I was so HAPPY when it was time to go home – but then as soon as I got home and calmed down again…

The human gave me A BATH! 

(But then she spoiled me and gave me treats)- and now….

I sure hope that windstorm is over tomorrow so I can go out and get dirty again!!

Twitchy Twilight’s Wacky Wednesday 

Hey there, peeps! 🐭🐹

Twilight here – the humans around here had some really pawful news from a furiend yesterday who is just like one of their own Creatures- (they call her their “adopted daughter -“) she was in the Emergency Room a whole state away in extreme pain and the doctors suspected a really pawful condition that would have just been too much for anyone to bear – especially someone under 25 years old. 

Read about it here –

They were all devastated and broken hearted and couldn’t think of anything but her and the pawful impact the diagnosis would have on her life and her family.

So I didn’t get a chance to grab the phone to post for today because the human was hanging on extra tight to it because they were waiting to hear the results of the MRI that would tell if that was the diagnosis or not- (a positive diagnosis would have meant emergency surgery).

Meanwhile, I  was being extra cute because I knew they were all upset and I was trying to help them stay calm. 

All the humans spent last night purraying that the diagnosis wouldn’t be anything so devastating so that she could have a chance at a normal life! 

This morning the news came back that the MRI was clear! They still don’t know what exactly is the purroblem- but she has been referred to specialists and at least now they know she will be able to recover!

Have a purrfect day!💘
