Tuxie Tuesday

Mom said I have a gift for layin' around in this thing a few days before I have to use it for transport.  I mean my PTU.  I was in it lounging yesterday.  You can see my wee little teefs shining out too if you look closely.  After a trip to the v-e-t, I won't go near it for weeks!

I only need to get my claws cut.  They are like swords on top of needles.  I know mom wishes I would let her do it but I would apply my teefs to her hand of she tried.  I'm a sweetie except when someone is handling my paws for claw cutting.

Remember, as Precious says, Tuxies Rule.  (you-know-whats-drool) Well, let's face it.  ALL kitties rule.

No one would ever guess such sharp claws are hiding under those cute feets!

Cheri said...

We like to hang out in our PTU too when it is not being used.

Mo will hang in carriers - unless he somehow figures out it is for him. :) Mom says if she lived closer she would try to help with the clippy claws.

Brian said...

My Dad just clipped my claws last night and I loved it. I just sit there and offer him my paws!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Our mom trims our claws most of the time, but does take the opportunity to have a vet tech do it when we're at the clinic for other reasons.

She claims our reactions are more akin to being tortured, and she claims we're just drama "queens."

Sweet Katie, you're a trusting girl.
When Mom opens the door to my PTU's hiding place, I go and sniff and renew my scent on it. But, I nefer lay in it.

Sissy will snooze in a PTU. Jenna won't go near one.

You should let your mommy massage around your paw pads. I massage Sissy's paws with one finger and she loves it. She spreads her paws out and wants more!

Katie, Katie, Katie!! You should let your sweet momma cut your talons. Most humans have to pay good moolah for a pedicure! mol

I clicked on the photo so I could get a better look at your teeth. It almost looked like you were smiling a bit.

Just remember that there are worse things to visit the vet for than nail-trimming. Too bad you don't let it happen at home. But, you are like most kitties and it is too scary to have people cut your nails.

I doubt very much that Gracie or Millie would hang out in one of the carriers even if we had room to keep them in the house. Gracie doesn't mind trimming, it's picking her up that is the problem. Adorable photo of you, Katie!

Prancer Pie said...

You look adorable and quite comfy, dearest Katie. What a gorgeous tuxie girl you are! - Precious

Clarissa said...

Oh Katie, you are so cute in your PTU! We understand about the claw trimming thing. Some of us will allow mom to trim our claws and some of us have to let the vet do it. And then there is Fiona...she won't let anyone touch her toes!!!

Beth said...

You look very cute snoozing away in your PTU Miss Katie. Happy dreams! xx

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Binga hates having her claws trimmed too - my human does it when she is sleepy (and does it quick!). Boodie and I consider claw trims as pawdicures and our due.

Mary said...

Tuxies are awesome indeed, Katie! And you're also right that all feline brothers and sisters are magnificent. :) NONE of my four gorgeous kitties like getting their claws trimmed. We let the v-e-t do them too. It's the smart thing. Have a wonderful Tuxie Tuesday!

Nellie said...

You are looking awfully cute, Katie!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Mommy clips all our nails (doggy, kitties, bunny, guinea pigs!). Tutu used to bite Mommy when she does but Mommy is very firm and just keeps clipping. When she's done, we all get a treat so after a few times, Tutu got the idea that if she cooperated, nail clipping is done very quickly and she gets a treat! Now she just lies on Mommy's lap (like the rest of us). :)

BeadedTail said...

We biggified to see your little teefs! Our daddy holds us while Mommy trims our nails but we don't mind since we get treats afterwards.

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

Allie: YES! Tuxies Rule, and OBNOXIOUS SIBLINGS drool.

meowmeowmans said...

We would have never guessed you are so fierce, Katie! But we understand ... there are lots of cats who don't like their claws trimmed.

Moosey likes laying in his PTU, too. :)

Hugs!

Stacy Hurt said...

I do think that's a tuxie thang. Miss Jack will run (something she doesn't normally do) when she sees That Woman put her up close glasses on and get the nippers. Even though we all get treats if we are good during our mani's Miss Jack (who is truly the sweetest cat ever all the time) does nothing but growl during the procedure. If she feels the whole thing is taking too long she will indeed apply the fangs or just take her paw and whap That Woman in the face! *usually with the 'untrimmed' paw! Makes me MOL so much! I'm gusty, you know that, but Miss Jack, the sweetest little rolly ball haul off & whappin That Woman! Makes me wish I could operate a video camera!

Oh Katie! You slay me! My head has 'sploded! Love your little teefies! And your furs look so wonderful in that picture!

Leo says: Katie, wow! You are smokin' girl! Can I come over and share your PTU for a while? (I cant believe I just ASKED to go in a PTU... but dang, you'd be worth it!)

ABBY said...

Miss Katie
Mom is only able to clip my nails if I am asleep and she only gets one done. We tuxie girls don't like our paws messed with.

Keisha said...

U so cyoooot! :)

Daisy said...

Katie, I admit I do not like clawr trimming, either. My Mommeh usually tries to do only 2 nails at a time.

Katz Tales said...

We would do ANYTHING to avoid the vet! Au is patient but grumbles a bit and we two do our own. Meow to you Katie Isabella!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

You look so happy in the PTU (with the door open). We wouldnt.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Mmmmm, tiny teefs! I am furry happy to know you would apply them when need be. You know, it really is nuffing short of an outrage that the Humans feel the need to interfere with the natural life cycle of our fantabulous claws, which miraculously regenerate and then shed the old one. My Human finds the old ones sometimes and she just says, "Huh" and throws it away. What blasphemy! They should be treated as sacred relics. My Human just has no respect, that's all. Sigh. Shall I come over later and lick your poor little clippied paws???

The Island Cats said...

Katie, like you, I will lay in the PTU, but the minute I hafta go to the v-e-t and the door gets closed, I start singing at the top of my lungs!!!

Cathy Keisha said...

I wont let the peeps put me in my PTU without a fight but after I get home, I'll lay in it for days afterward if they don't close the door. Then I lay on top of it.

Oui Oui said...

Our mom cuts our nails too! But she does it herself. Maybe we should try biting, we hadn't thought of that. She started it when we were kittens (but not MMM), so we thought it was normal!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Katie, My sweet darling! Are you boycotting your devoted Spitty? Or are you off visiting that BOOMIE or somefing? Hrrrumph.

m.q said...

hii Katie,
you just look like me. Maybe we can be pals!!

Dear Katie,
It is true that all kitties rule but you are one cute kitty =^.^=

Marg said...

We like to lounge some in our carriers too but not often. The door might get shut. Hope all of you have a great day. Sorry we are a day late.

Selina said...

We do that too if MomKatt brings it up & leaves the flap down/open. Sometimes we "let" her catch us, if the right cat is in the carrier. My brofur, Feisal, used to love getting into any type of carrier or suitcase ....

PURRS!
