Candy & EK Have Arrived!

My new fursibs have arrived. Mom picked them up on Friday from Duncan’s Place.They are very little, and I guess they’re cute. But boy have they taken over! They’re constantly climbing on Mom and rubbing and purring on her, the little suck-ups. EK’s climbing all over her right now while she’s trying to type for me. They climb all over my cat tree and have usurped my little red tent. So far they haven’t gotten in my stroller, but I bet that’s just a matter of time. They haven’t slept in Mom’s bed yet, either, so that’s still all mine, too.

 EK (short for Evel Knievel. And he’s definitely evil.)

Candy. She’s ok. She’s quieter and doesn’t bug me as much.

So far they don’t seem very interested in toys, so my toys are still all mine! I did get Mom all to myself yesterday for #PPPawty so Mom could type and upload pictures for me. Mom’s also been trying to give me special treats just for me, but I didn’t eat them. Not sure which squirt wound up with my shrimps.

Speaking of toys, most of my favorite little toys have been missing for a long time. Mom looked all over for them. She even got a friend’s kid to help her look under the furniture. She even looked under the fridge. No luck. Well yesterday, we heard all this squeaking and EK wasn’t playing with my squeaky mouse on a stick toy. So Mom goes to see what he found and he was reaching under the little wine fridge. Mom moved it and there were all my toys! Over a dozen of them. I was so happy to see all my toys again. I guess squirts are good for something.

Anyway, Mom went crazy with the flashy box. There’s lots of pictures and even some video. I’m in some of the pictures, too. Because of the video, I did a link this time to the album. Click on the picture below to see more pictures. Enjoy!

New Kitties

So far we’ve sold 25 copies of ‘Summer at the Lake with Petie‘. I’m not sure how much money I’ve raised because the website keeps some and Paypal takes some, but its around $70 and probably more. Copies are starting to arrive at pals homes. @LilyLuWhoT has gotten her copy. Mine should arrive tomorrow. As you know, my goal is 100 copies sold. If anyone has ideas how to sell more books, please DM me. The kitties at Duncan’s Place and the humans caring for them really deserve the help. I did look into Amazon, but that would just make the books more expensive. I guess I need ideas how to publicize it better without being annoying about it.

Speaking of help, my wonderful friends, @whsker and @dashkitten, are not only getting a copy of Summer at the Lake with Petie, but they wrote about it in their blog: Dash Kitten’s Mewsings, I was so surprised!. I think that was such a nice thing for them to do. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised though. Dash and his human are always writing about others and are always looking for ways to help everyone. They are some of the most thoughtful pals out there in the Anipal Twitterverse and the Cat Blogoshpere.

The other excitement this last week was Petie and Pandy’s shower. The guys went hiking and the girls went shopping, and all kinds of interesting happened while we were out. Everyone had a wonderful time, and a few pals wound up in Twitter jail! That’s all I’m gonna tell you. What happens in Twitter stays in Twitter!

Armarkat Faux Fleece Deluxe Cat Tree

I got the coolest cat tree for my Gotcha Day. My gotcha day was actually last week, but my present didn’t come until Friday. It’s the Armarkat Faux Fleece Deluxe Cat Tree and Mom got it from Petco. It came in a great big box and Mom had to put it together.

It had so many pieces, I couldn’t believe it! It even had the tools to put it together. The tree came with good directions, too.

It actually went together pretty quickly.

Of course I had to inspect all the pieces and snoopervise the construction.

Look at how cool this is. It’s got 2 hidey holes for playing and sleeping. It’s got ladders for climbing and lots of scratching posts. At the top there are three platforms. I’m getting two brofurs so it’s perfect – we each get one!

I wasn’t to interested at first. I didn’t understand about climbing and how fun high places are. Then Mom rubbed catnip in one of the hidey holes and put treats in the top to make it more interesting for me to check it out. Once I climbed up to get the treats and play in the catnip, I saw how furry cool it was to be up high. Now I go up there without prompting cause I know how much fun it is. I’m a little nipped out in the first picture. MOL!

Look at my floofy tail hanging down. And my toes hanging out. MOL!

So that’s my Gotcha Day present. I think it’s a present for my brofurs, too, ’cause it’s big enough for all three of us. Only two more weeks until they come. I still can’t decide what to name them. I think I’m gonna have to live with them for a while first.

Oh, and Happy Howloween!
