Catthump Day

Halloween practice continues. Who needs a jack-o-lantern when you have an orange cat with eyes like these?

Monday Morning Gossip

The week starts off with a good gossip around the kibble dish to catch up on the weekend news and make plans for the rest of the week. Now, by the sound of it, the buns have moved on to renovating their space yet again.

Caturday Fishing

Fargo says: It's Caturday, take your cat fishing. It doesn't even have to be a real fish--just spend quality time with your cat.
(Here Fargo is playing with his "Pollock fish" a catnip fish toy in a "Pollock" splatter print.)

Free the Bun Monday

After an exciting weekend that saw the new refrigerator arrive Friday night in time for weekend vegetable storage and the death of the spin cycle on the washer on Sunday , we are happy to report that things (uncharacteristically) on Monday are looking up. The washer has been fixed and can now return to doing bunny laundry as necessary and the cats have been released from their respective prisons (GE repair specifically requests that animals be sequestered, otherwise they won't do the service). Bertie Bun, however, is still incarcerated in the family room with only Mercedes Bun and depleted kibble and vegetable dishes for company. Can you hear his plaintive SOS thumps (Free the Bun! Free the Bun!) where you are? Seriously, he gets stressed out when he's in the living room with the cats and prefers the family room where he can hold sway over Mercedes: he's just into drama and likes to maximize his haul of carrots and bananas.

What do you mean you're afraid to go down to the basement? It's not even Halloween yet! You've been watching too many scary movies! It's perfectly safe, go right ahead!

Not Speaking to You

We get off on fifty seven carrots
We get off on a thumping good time
Like the way it gets us
every time it hits us
We've got disapprovin'
We've got disapprovin' hearts.

We didn't cause the refrigerator's compressor to go out. We shouldn't have to suffer. You should have carried the new refrigerator home on your backs yesterday instead of waiting until the store could deliver it today (and between 3-7 p.m.)! We disapprove of having to wait for you to go to the store to get us fresh veggies on a daily basis. You should have a) planted a cat-proof garden so we could get veggies on demand, b)ordered a special rush delivery from one of the organic farms in the area, and c)arranged a field trip for us to said organic farm that included an unlimited tasting session in the fields of our choice. And what about our dinner? That delivery window encompasses our dinner time! When you should be focusing on our needs you are going to be trying to prevent the blind, deaf, and feral cats from escaping out the front door! We disapprove with all our hearts and we are not speaking to you!!!!

Catthump Day

Catthump day fortune:

Even though it started with a holiday, the week is still half over. Rest up for events yet to come.

Labor Day Advice from Mercedes Bun

1. Keep your people busy. It's called Labor Day for a reason.

2. Discourage them from taking a trip. You've just got them trained, you don't want to spend the time breaking in new staff. You come first.

3. They shouldn't spend so much time in the sun. It causes premature aging and skin cancer. They should be indoors, tending to your needs. (Except for any outdoor excursions you may have planned or tending to your vegetable garden.)

4. Most of all relax and enjoy the day, it's hard to run a household up to bun standards.

Remember, it's Labor Day weekend, your people are supposed to do all the work.
