The Most Wonderful Time of Year

Hello all my faithful readers,

Not many of your know it, but Christmas in my most favorite time of year! The humans put up a whole big green (yum!) tree with all these cat toys on the branches.

Here I am, pretending not to be interested in the green thing since the human is paying attention to me.. but just wait until her back is turned! (Do you see all the cat toys??)

Here it looks like the humans caught me just as I was trying to infiltrate another green thing, filled with yet even more cat toys! I'm trying to act all nonchalant..

It's hours of fun! If that's not enough, they put many mysterious boxes, wrapped in paper and ribbon. I love ribbon.. and would eat it if my humans let me. They get very anxious when I try... I love the boxes too.. I sit on them when they're all wrapped up, but they get better since the humans eventually open them and just leave them lying around! So many boxes to get into.. so little time!!!

Did I mention they put green things out everywhere? The whole house is draped with things to eat for me. And I do, even though it's all plastic... This green thing was real though.. so delicious! Imagine my excitement!

If that wasn't enough, the humans give me new toys filled with catnip.. perhaps not the smartest idea on their part. But hey, who am I to complain?

And that is why this is the most wonderful time of year.. Wising everyone a very, Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year. And remember.. a Merry Christmas for a cat looks like this:

A Merry Christmas for a cat does NOT look like this:

What a wonderful idea.. podcasting the very relaxing sound of purring. Every week they will present purring and whatever other cat related things that happen to strike their fancy. There might be featured guests, roving reporters or (everyone’s favorite) show tunes!. All content is cat approved, of course.

What the heck ...

So what the heck did I do .. stuffed in a cage.. taken in that loud car up to those scary ladies on the mountain who weigh me and stick a needle in my arse? Now I have to eat tarter control food and loose my tasty treats? Bite me!

The Meaning of my Kitty Life

Finally.. the meaning of my life.. explained!

Scary thunderstorm last night. It was short but that stuff is pretty loud with my lil ears! The folks seem to be planning or organizing some kind of trip again. Back to the kitty retreat? Sigh ...

Update from Tub

A brief update on my life. Why from the tub? Because that's my favorite hang out.. of course!

The humans have been feeding me the fish cat food lately. It's been good. I love it when it's extra stinky!

I got some new toy mice. I know the humans have bought me about 50 of those things.. but who knows where they go? Oh wait, I do! Half of them are under the couch and the other half I've stuck in my secret hiding place. A place that I will not divulge here, in case the humans read my blog.

The cat grass has been pretty consistent over the summer. Too bad I keep eating it until it dies. What can I say? It's a dependency.

Another, rather disturbing note. I just looked up "Anya" on google images. Who are these naked women.. and why do they have my name??

And the humans haven't put me in the cat hotel again.. yet. Though I see some sort of "count-down" timer on the female-food-giver and lap-owner's blog. 42 days and counting down.. This is not a good sign. I'll initiate Operation Insert-Self-In-Suitcase-And-Every-Other-Open-Bag tomorrow! Tomorrow and every day! It's my favorite plan..

Warrior Kitty

Recently, a black bear wandered into a backyard in West Milford, New Jerse and was confronted by a 15-pound (7-kilogram) tabby cat … and then promptly fled up a neighbor's tree. Hissing at the base of the tree, Jack the clawless cat kept the bear at bay for about 15 minutes, then ran him up another tree after an attempted escape.

Finally, Jack's owner called the cat inside, and the bear disappeared back into the woods.

Full-grown black bears weigh between 200 and 600 pounds (90 and 270 kilograms) and measure as much as 6 feet (1.8 meters) long. Their diets can include fruits, honey, insects, acorns and animals as big as moose calves—a fact apparently lost on Jack.

Well, the bear hasn't met me yet either! Unlike Jack the Cat, I would lull him into a false sense of security and then pounce!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm recovering from my stay at the kitty hotel.. no pictures though.. forgot to pack batteries for my digital camera. I also lack an opposable thumb, therefore I reallly, can't take pictures..

Anyway, just letting everyone know that I'm still beautiful.

And don't forget it!

I'm getting suspicious about my roomies.. they're packing again, getting things ready and set out. I think it's just a matter of time before the dreaded suitcases make an appearance! I hate it when they leave.. and I've covertly tried to get packed away many times in a effort to go with them. They always find me though..
My first, unsuccessful, attempt:

My next, more sophisticated attempt..

And then I tried "blending in" with the clothes, so they would pack me along with them!

*sigh* Didn't work!

In any case, I know that they're on to my plans. I have to try another strategy. Since I am now a web-surfing kinda cat.. I left this web page open for them to review:
How To Travel With A Cat
I promise that I'll be good! Honest!

Pretty slow day today. Interrupted but slow. I was trying to get some sleep when all heck broke loose on the roof above us. Some workers up there doing something. Whatever it was it was loud as heck. I know that all I really do is sleep but still very inconvenient!

I think something is up. Michael just got back from some kind of trip and poof first thing he does is get on the internet and connect to Holly's Pride (my vacation condo for when they go to a nicer condo). I don't know what is going on but I suspect there is a trip about to happen and I'm going to be one very upset purrson!

Full House of Irritants

Man we had a full house on Saturday. We had 9 humans in the apartment for Easter. With most of them around until like 11pm. People think I am antisocial and they get all weird when I respond negatively to them. How would you like it if you were one in a room of 10 and everyone keeps coming up to you and start running their hands through your hair? It's annoying. Geesh.. humans!

Laundry! Arg!

Now for those of you who know me you might be wondering why I added Arg to that. It's because of the nerve of my roommate Michael. He was up late last night (until 10pm) doing laundry. By the time he got back I was already sleeping. I didn't even know that there was a big fresh basket of warm goodness right out of the drier. As a result I was not able to spend the entire day sleeping in it.

This really sucks. You know when those two do laundry can be real hit and miss. I may get another chance this week or it could be three.. geesh.. dorks!

I feel very controlled... or without control.. a rant and a hiss!

Some people say I'm moody and a generally angry being. They say that I'm purring one minute and the next I'm trying to bite you. It's not like I ever draw blood ;) .. OK well not often!

I think i have good reason though and maybe yah I'm like that sometimes but what can you expect? Let me give you some examples. So like today Esther is going all out and making a chicken and sausage Jambalaya. It smells great and she is slow cooking it so I have to bear with the smell all day. Lets keep in mind that I have a VERY keen sense of smell.

So like it seems great.. but I won't get any... It is only for Mike and her. Yes I know they are a couple and I'm kind of like a permanent case. It Kitty Kalen (remember Kato?) if I may .. but still.. every day its the same crap they provide for me. Some stupid mush in a can. Fish, chicken, mysterious meat. Its not like flaked .. usually lumped.

You'd think they are trying to keep me on some super diet or something. And how about that "door" I mentioned before. It's hard not to feel like a prisoner when you are always kept from opening these things. Locked, inaccessible to me.. whatever it is all the same. And they go out it and disappear for 12 hours at a time.. sometimes even for three days. It gets lonely.

Sigh.. I guess I just hopped off the bed on the wrong side. I'm making them seem all bad but it is really perspective. I love 'em anyways even if they sometimes take my grass away from me!

I only have a few seconds. My roomate Michael is packing up stuff from his old job to return things to the office. This is exciting stuff because he has lots and lots of brief cases, bags, luggage, and stuff from his job. I have a bit of a fetish for those things... c'mon lots of girls like purses.. I just like more utility! Sucks though because he has to give most of them back.

Plus have you ever tried to get into a purse?

I'll end with a quote:

"Time spent with cats is never wasted." - Sigmund Freud

He was on to something there :)

Yawn .. A Lazy Sunday

It's a pretty lazy Sunday around here. My one roomie (Michael) is procrastinating a bit before he gets down to some paperwork. He is a psychoeducational consultant (whatever that means). He used to be a clinical consultant (not sure what that means either) but it did make him travel a LOT. I used to try to sneak in his luggage to go on some glorious trips but he always figured it out. My other roomie (Esther - Michael's wife.. yes I live with married people.. is that weird?) is here sleeping after a night shift (she's a nurse). I may crawl in with her later to catch some daytime Zzzz's.

Yah that probably sounds a lil weird. But I lived with them before they got married and they seemed to just have kept me around. I'm not complaining. They are "usually" good roommates. They get out a lot more than I do. I'm more of a home-body and into the ol' routine .. same kind of place .. same kind of meals.. yah know all that.

Kinda low on food around here .. all I have left is meat products.. don't get me wrong I'm not vegetarian but I do like a bit of greens here or there. I'm going to snoop around a bit later to see what I can find.

Well I'm off.. there has to be a keyboard to sit on somewhere.

Ahh how cute is this!

A slow Saturday

Well ok every day is kind of slow for me.. but not much going on today... Just cuddled up on the couch with my roomies to watch the pilot of some new show called Raines. I slept through most of it so I did not keep up. My roomies decided to watch another episode of the show (they worship their DVR) but I decided to come on here and write a little bit.

The news has been depressing lately. Anyone seen this awful poison cat food news going around? Really sucks .. they are calling it Rat Poison now.. hopefully no one did this on purpose. That would really be awful.

I looked up poison on google images and this was the first picture:

This is more along the story lines. Though I must admit their hair is almost as puffy as my fur.

I'm hoping to work out a bit today.. maybe some sprints ... or some kitty soccer.. we'll see... gotta stay healthy with all this bad health stuff going around in the news.. Gotta cope somehow!

Welcome to the Meow Down!


Hello there! Welcome to the Meow Down! This is my first blog and is going to document my very exciting life! Well OK everyone may not find it so exciting but I like how it is going so far.

My name is Anya. That is actually the short form for my full name that is Anyanka and I live in Canada. You may be very surprised but I do not even speak English! I actually use a beta version of the Google Translation program to translate everything into English so you guys can read this! It is crazy how this new fangled technology works. I'm going to try to post pretty regularly for a little while at least. I have lots to share! It will be lots of work because I do not type so fast. Hunt and paw all the way!

Here's just some hints of what is to come!

* A discussion of the great mysteries of my life (what is behind that door)
* A discussion of my favorite pets (micies!)
* Blabbing about my roomates
* Food talk!
* Pictures! I'm totally photogenic!
* Why I actually LIKE laundry!

;) It should be fun!
