Tuxie Tuesday with update

Ah Kitties and woofies, I was glad to know that I'm not the only one who scrubs the windows and tub and that there are other musical kitties too who play the harp.

There were great suggestions for my mom to change to roman shades BUT that needs green papers to get (great idea though) and mom is as useless as (here comes her favorite phrase) (wait for it) mammary glands on a boar hog.  {Now here in the South we usually don't use the words 'mammary glands' and just go for the gusto and say the more coarse word I'm sorry to say; but here mom and I want to protect tender kitty and woofie ears and eyes} BUT... back on topic, mom is that useless when it comes to installing (or assembling for that matter) ANYTHING in the world.  So she'd have to snag a bean somewhere who knows how to do it and pay more green papers to git 'er done.  She also said that these blinds are of the better variety and custom done so she hates to get rid of them if I can re-train myself not to put on a show every day.

Oh, the other suggestion about closing the door..there are NO closed doors in this house.  If there are, the carpet is in grave peril as I and anycat dig and tunnel under the door to get in and tend to business as usual.  Vocalization is a freebie thrown in.

CK, this candy bar is not yours.  I took it from the Admiral's toy box so there!  Besides, you didn't invite me to teleport over.  So there!  Also, can any cat tell mom how to increase font size!?  This stuff here is microscopic!  YES!  As you can see, mommy made it bigger.  Fanks you kitties and friends.

  1. mom got lucky with our shades...her best friend has sewing skills. :) Maybe she can try some of that bitter apple spray we hear about so you stop playing the harp....

  2. I suspect you are quite talented with the harp playing so maybe with a little more practice, your mommy will learn to appreciate your musical skills more.

  3. Beautiful Katie Isabella, yeah, I typically use the coarse word too.

    I have several kitty fosters that scrub the windows with their front paws.

    I have to keep the blinds up in the rooms the cats room otherwise they break them. I have cheap plastic blinds and at some point will replace them but right now can replace the plastic ones really cheaply when they get destroyed. The only one that bothers me is the one in my bedroom. NO! I don't want it up most of the way. Then the sun streams in my face when I'm trying to sleep. But the cats don't care. After all, they are more important than I am. :-)

  6. Delilah is the musical kitty in our house. She plays the harp on the balcony door window! She doesn't even use blinds!

    We love your Mom's saying and we wish OUR Mom was as careful with her curse words around our delicate ears as your Mom is!

  7. Tell mommie to go to Design, then Template Designer, then Advanced and there she can change her font. xx

  8. What, your human bros can't can over and install the shades?? Your Mom gave them life! It's the least … Moving on, you have to highlight all the text and then go to the menu bar on top and pull down the one with the 2 T's. On our end, we can do Shift Command + to make the type bigger.

  9. Katie - the easiest thing is not to play the blings but then that's boring. Try sitting on your paws until Mom's out of earshot and then play the harp very loudly - we're sure your neighbours will come round to applaud you.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  10. MOL! All our shades and blinds are in various states of disrepair. Mom thought that was just the added bonus of haffin us to grace her life!

  11. Mom is very thankful that none of us has tried to be musical on the blinds. But now that we have read about it, it sounds like fun. Sounds like you got some good suggestions. How about putting them up until you Katie, forget about that exercise. Take care.

  12. I know what you mean about those words since I am a Southern Gentlemancat! Have fun pretty girl!

  13. Mom Carole, the Mom here thinks I might still paw at Roman shades, and then she would be super mad to have spent all that money. You, Katie, might behave better with curtains because you could possibly get behind them. There is some plastic film stuff one can cut to size and apply to the window to create a diffused light effect, which could help a little with the privacy aspect of things. Improvements catalog under Window Film gives a few types. Good luck!!

  14. Oh, and not sure if you would be willing to try this, but some mothballs in netting/pantihose remnant put on the window ledge might deter kitties going there. Once the habit is broken could be removed.

  15. Well hopefully Katie will get bored with the harp/blinds game and find another less annoying/ musical pursuit...We know she has it in her!! :p

  16. There are no closed doors in our house either Katie...I haven't had a shower or even a pee by myself for years - LOL!!!!

  17. I sing a lot too. And LOUDLY. Mommy thinks I make sweet music. *love*
    Maybe you could sing only to me? That would mean so much to me and save your Mom some green papers.

    Love, Your Boomie

  18. We had roman shades in one of our other houses and I almost ruint them trying to squeeze behind them.

  19. Luckily for us, we have drapes. No issues, except for when Moosey hides behind them so he can surprise Sammy. MOL.

  20. The only blinds in my house are cheap ones and they are in a window I can't reach! Talk about fun spoilers...

  21. you are such a dear... if there was a fly in the blinds, we go mad... we are sending YOU love and purrs... in adoration (for being you). Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  22. So Katie dear, not only are you a musical prodigy, you are also an ace wannabe tunneller. Go girl!!! Austin learnt that trick :( xx

  23. I so totally understand about those pesky green papers... They're the reason we don't have curtains at the moment.. Or another chair/couch.
    There has to be a way to curb the need to practice.. Some other kind of noisy toy? I mean musical instrument.. (that can be put up at night maybe)
    I used to have a kitty who played the rubber bands on newspapers. All I had to do was remove them when his playing went on too long. And trust me, it went on and on and on and on...

  24. Dear Katie,
    Me did not realize what a wonderful Cat From Hell you is! You will get high marks for all of those traits!
    Kisses

  25. Darling Katie, No one will steal your candy bar!!! It was furry nice of the Admiral to leave you such a well-stocked toy box ;-) She was very sweet like that (although evidently not as sweet as YOU, eh? Perhaps you are a bit TOO nice? On the other hand, your recent activity suggests that Nellie might soon offer you admission to the Cat from Hell club, ha ha meow. That's kind of a relief, actually, because I am not all that nice myself, so I don't want you to be a Good Girl who's Too Good for Bad Ole Me!) XOXOXO

  26. Katie, we have custom blinds on most of our windows too...and we like to play them just like you. When we get out of hand with them, our mom just keeps them raised up some. In fact, in Zoey's room the blinds are always kept halfway up...but that's so she can see out the windows better.

  27. Katie, we haven't heard those sayings before but we'd love to visit you to learn fun sayings from your mom and how to play the harp from you!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Mum laughed at that saying and said she will have to remember it.

    She keeps doodling with your stardust instead of helping us visit other friends!

  29. Allie scratches like that on the closet doors at night. Mom tried leaving them open but it really didn't help.

  31. Oh boy! I don't know what Roman blinds are, but they sound fun. :)

  32. he he Katie my girl - you are quite the character. You are always one step head (or maybe it's 2 steps ahead) of your mom. You are doing a good job of keeping her on her toes and her brain active.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What's your Mom's problem anyway? It sounds like you are being very helpful, and are so cheerful while you do it.

    I think your Mom is the one who needs the cattitude adjustment!

  34. As a Southern dawg, I can appreciate your humor as well as your gentility. And, really? Some humans close inside doors on kitties? Outside doors are bad enough, doncha think?

  35. Hi Katie Isabella !
    In our bedroom we have pulldowns from IKEA.
    You can´t play harp on them , but you can make a very irretating nocie when you scratch on them :)
    YAY ! Glad that your mom found out how to make the font size bigger !

  36. Since we live in an apartment complex, we are lucky, and so is Meowm. If something needs to be done, she calls the office.

    However, Meowm has been known to put together furniture that comes in a box (like our cat tree and her desk). She also changed out the seat on the human litterbox things. She can be a bit handy when necessary.

    Junior tells of a bunch of water coming out of the sink in the human litterbox room, andhow Meowm ran around like her tail was on fire to get that stopped. We are sorry we didn't all live here then to witness that!

  37. I've heard that the prong side of a vinyl hall runner (to protect carpeting) will deter cats. It doesn't feel very good on paws at all. One would trim it to fit the window sill or furniture--wherever Katie is at when she plays the harp :)

  38. Hey Mom! I saw your comment about my girl and I wanted to tell you that unfortunately she is sick. I think it happened around the time you lost your girl so you probably missed reading about it. Finny has gastrointestinal lymphoma. She is doing well but it's hard to keep her eating and holding it in long enough.

    I have enjoyed reading your blog and seeing how you have been able to find a new girl to love.

  39. Don't worry about the language sweet Katie. You have no idea of some of the things I heard while I was in the Navy. Paragon of virtue that I am, I never used that sort of language. :-)

  40. My Human still laughs about the old George Carlin Seven-words-you-can't-say-on-TV routine. And part of it was him wondering how a silly little word like t--- for mammary glands ended up on the same list with all those other REALLY big-time bad words!

  41. Our mom is so bad with tools that people who know her take them out of her hands and volunteer to do it for her. She laughs at their horrified looks when she does pick up a tool. Katie, you can come over any time if there's a door closed you don't like or you want to play with new toys.

  42. We agree about "no closed doors". The only ones we got wgt are close are the front and garage doors an THEY are all metal.
