The InvisaBug

Dear Blog (is that how I'm 'sposed to address this?),

Last couple days have been nice since Miss Mendy was humbled. It's been so nice to see her highness brought so low!! Got to tell you about my amazing adventure though!! You'll never believe this, but I think I may have discovered a new species of bug!!

Last night I saw this really really strange bug in Patti's bedroom. It was glowing red and zipped around like some kind of UFO. I've seen lots of bugs, but nothing like this!! What was it's intent? Was it going to harm anyone?? Like any normal cat, I snapped into alert mode and assumed my sacred duty of protecting my human... OK, that's a bit too dog-like, but I knew I HAD to get that bug!! It was my biological imperative!! The bug zipped and zoomed around the room, stopping sometimes to make funny jerky movements. I saw Patti busy waving a funny little metal cylinder around, but I didn't have time to think about that.... Focus, Kizzi!! You must catch the BUG!! There! It zipped across the ceiling, down the wall, across the carpet toward me and.... POUNCE!! Got it!! I know I did!! I was certain it was just under my paw and I didn't want to loose it. So, I ever so gently lifted up one toe, peeked underneath and doggone it (cat cursing again, sorry), the bug was GONE! NO WAY!! I am CAT!

I heard Patti laughing, but I was determined. I looked everywhere. I knew it had to be out there...somewhere... Wait!! I see it again. This time it's sitting on the mirror, but what was really weird is that it was suddenly joined by another bug just like it and they were flying in synch!! My Gosh!! Blue Angel Invisabugs!! Wow!! I waited till they flew down toward the floor and as soon as it did, POOF! Now it's buddy went invisible! This is nuts! Has to be some kind of insect uprising!!

The solitary glowbug crawled my way. I shuddered with excitement. Kitty adrenaline poured into my furry body.... POUNCE!!! At last!! I KNOW I got the darned thing THIS time! I heard Patti giggle again, but stayed intent on my task. Had to focus!! I was NOT gonna let it get away this time! Ever so slowly I lifted one of my toes so I could to grab the little sucker and just as I was ready to bite down on it's shiny little head, POOF! Gone again! WHAT?? How can this be! My honor is at stake!! I MUST catch it!

Suddenly it appeared to the left. I swung left. Then it streaked to the right. I jumped right. Then it started spinning around me like it was taunting me. That just made me madder!! OK bug, YOU'RE DEAD!! And I was hot on it's heels! I spun 'round and 'round and 'round, hot on it's tail till I was tipsy and sick. Then as quick as it started spinning, it stopped. I stopped and tried to beam in on it, but my eyes kept going round and round and round... weird. No time to think about that tho, back to the bug! This was my big opportunity!! It moved again. NOW it was ON my paw! This is IT!! POUNCE!!! I bit at it so loud Patti could hear my teeth snap shut, but once again...GONE!! I was furious!!

Just then Patti set the funny metal thing on the nightstand and rolled over. At least now she stopped laughing at me... But ignore her! Back to the BUG! I seached...up, down, behind me, next to me, under the bed... Where was it? Finally I just figured my monstrous bite must have scared it off, so decided to chaulk it up as a victory for me. Ah, the sweet sense of utter control!! Now I can sleep. I proudly liked my paws and jumped up on the bed and curled up next to Patti and fell asleep dreaming I was catching glowing red ivisabugs...

Her Magesty, Mendy,

Originally uploaded by pattivt.
Check out this face... Is that the look of entitlement or what??? And the red eyes? Are those eyes YOU would trust? Most humans fall in love with her, but I know better!

No fooling me with those "I'm just an innocent fluffball" look!!
Her Majesty REALLY believes she owns everything in sight - and in MY home, no less!! It's beyond disgusting, even for me!
And I'm a CAT!
Read on and you'll see why...

Kizzi's Victory!

I tell you. I don't understand humans. Mine got me and my mom, Leia, 4 years ago and life was wonderful until she rescued another Ragamuffin named "Mendy"... (I shudder just saying the name). Now me and momma Leai are just plain ole' easy goin', laid-back, way cool kitties, but Mendy is one of those Prima Donna-Princess types with a capital "P" for "pttttttt". Just 'cause she won some prize in some show years ago doesn't mean we have to bow down before her!

Talk about attitude! Mom and I were peeved when she first came, but we could tell Mendy came from a rough home, so we decided to welcome her and be friendly, but doggone it (that's cat cursing, by the way), no matter WHAT we do, she goes into hissing frenzy fits and starts shrieking and swiping her paws in all directions a rate that would make you think she's a B25! I kid you not! This cat moves AIR with those propeller paws. It must be compensation for being declawed, but that's no excuse for being rude!!

Well, she got hers last night and I'm flying high! I was watching my human brush her teeth when Mendy sneaked up from behind and for no good reason, flat out attacked me, screeching and hissing like all get out. Now my human is REALLY patient, but Mendy overstepped her bounds with this attack, 'cause next thing I know here comes a glob of water flying out of the cup aimed directly at Mendy's head! I freaked and tore off to the bed to be safe, but when I looked back and saw Mendy with a sopping wet head, looking utterly shocked and slinking off in defeat, it was the best!!! Patti went over and loved on her, but I still laugh thinking 'bout it!

Definitely a Kodak moment!
Bye fer now

My First Blog!

Dear Diary: This is new to me, so I'm not sure what I'm 'sposed to do yet, but I'm sure I'll learn in time. Today was a bit of a challenge as I've been trying to get all the blog settings right. These PAWS weren't made for typing! Anyway, I think I'm doing pretty good so far... Used to be all I could do was walk all over the keyboard and make my human crazy, but at least things are starting to make some sense now....

Just heard the can-opener so must run. Will be back soon
