We're Here!

We've moved and we're not happy about it!

I look a little scraggly because I had a little accident on the way over and Mommy had to towel me down. I couldn't help it - I was just a tiny bit scared.

We came over to the new apartment last night with Mommy, and both Deli and I are very upset! We didn't let her get any sleep last night because we were both walking around crying. The movers are coming on Friday with the rest of our furniture, so this place is empty and scary!

Mommy keeps saying that we'll learn to like it, but I decided to spend most of my time under the sofa. Mommy put my hairy blanket under there with me so I felt secure.

Delilah is even more upset than me and does not want to eat, so Mommy is off to buy some tuna (which she loves more than anything) and maybe some other things that she'll eat. Mommy had a cat many years ago that had lipidosis, so she knows that not eating for too long is very bad for a cat. I didn't eat until this morning, but she breathed a sigh of relief when I did.

What's even worse about the situation, is Sweet Pea is enjoying OUR former home! This is definitely a travesty!

Ahh, the memories of being back in our real home with all those boxes. Maybe Mommy will change her mind and move us back there soon.

Tortie Tuesday

We're still in the throes of our packing and moving, and we won't be back to posting full-time until we're actually set up in our new place, but Mommy asked me to write a post to announce a special event we have coming up in May. On May 17th, it's both mine and Mommy's birthday and collectively we'll be turning 444! She'll be 44 and I'll be 4. I guess that means she's twice as old as me, although she looks and acts a lot older sometimes.

For our birthdays, we're going to have a big contest and giveaway with prizes! We won't tell you exactly what the prizes are yet, but we do need your help for our contest. Since it's Mommy's birthday too, it was my idea to do something that involved one of her favorite things - Tortie toes! She thinks mine look like big fuzzy caterpillars and she's always smooching them. If you're a Tortie (or Torbie, or Tortico, basically any 'Torttoes'), and you have a blog, we need a photo of your toes for our contest! The prizes won't be just for Torties. All kitties will be able to enter the contest.

To send in your Torttoes, please send them to themonkeycats at gmail dot com. The more toes we have, the more fun the contest will be.

Hopefully we'll be back soon with new photos in our new place!

Finally Friday

Our fast approaching move is starting to overwhelm Mommy! She has so much to do, and not much time left to do it. We wanted to let you know that we probably won't be around much in the next couple of weeks.

We're going to lend a paw or two and help her pack...but first, naps!

Have a great weekend!

Tortie T(h)ursday

Sweet Pea here!

I am very happy that I won my first bout in The Kitty Fight Club! Thank you to all who voted for me and a special thank you to my cute opponent, Virgil, for such a great match! You should stop by his blog today because they're having a 'commentathon' for a really good cause!

I am almost 7 months old now and Daddy says that I'm getting to be as beautiful as Delilah. I'm almost a ladycat, so I'm learning to pose like one too!

I've learned a lot of my moves from Deli, and even though she is envious of my thumbs, I think that deep down she's kinda proud of me.

She did mention something about an important vet trip I have to make soon because I'm getting to 'that age'...and then she snickered. I don't know what she means, but it must be fun if Deli was laughing! I love surprises!

Tortie Tuesday

Most of you know that Sweet Pea is entered in the Kitty Fight Club over at Misha's this year. I am writing this post to let you know the reasons why you should NOT vote for her. I have uncovered shocking facts that will definitely sway you. Of course, the threat of censorship is always looming. Mommy is the only one in this household that knows how to click the 'Publish Post' button, so hopefully most of my words will be heard.

Here are the reasons you should not vote for Sweet Pea:

  1. Not an actual Monkey! Do you see her face in the banner? Her name in the profile? I think she should automatically be disqualified from the contest! (Mommy: She most definitely IS a Monkey, Deli. We've just been too lazy to put her picture in the banner and change the profile)
  2. She has extra toes! Surely she isn't a cat, because cats don't have thumbs! (Mommy: Yes they do! Even some of your friends have extra toes! Hey, maybe she'll even learn how to click the 'Publish Post' button with her extra digits.)

  3. Photoshop. That's right, her photos are not real. She's not that cute in person. How can anything be this cute? (Mommy: You're being silly. Of course she's that cute. I don't even know how to use Photoshop.)

  4. She has bad breath. (Mommy: Unfortunately I can't disagree with you on this one, Deli)
  5. She's stupid. (Mommy: Deli, is there something on your mind you want to discuss?)
  6. Sweet Pea is evil and plotting against Samson and I. (Mommy: No comment)

Now that you know the truth, I urge you to NOT vote for Sweet Pea by NOT clicking HERE!



P.S Hypocrites!

Mancat Monday

With our moving date coming up on the 30th, this place has become a mess! I am a very clean cat, and to protest, I told Mommy that I would not pose for my Mancat Monday pictures until it was cleaned up. Of course, Mommy knows me too well and promised me treats if I gave her a couple of good poses.

How's this classic handsome Mancat pose for you?

Serious and floofy. Hold yourself back, ladies.

Hey, is that a cobweb?

Coy and pensive...oh, and of course, floofy.

Treat time! Hand 'em over, Mommy.

Don't look so shocked, Ball Guy. Yes, I can be bought.

Finally Friday

I'm so happy it's Friday! It's chilly and rainy, and Mommy has had a long week. I predict a little sleeping in and snuggling this weekend.

I better practice.

I'm pretty good at this!

Also, little Sweet Pea is battling it out in the first round of The Kitty Fight Club. You can help her out and vote for her by clicking here

Kitty Fight Club 2

Sweet Pea here!

When Samson and Delilah's Mommy told me that she entered me into a fight, I was very honored and excited. Finally I get a chance to show off some of my moves! I may still be a kitten, but I've been training with Delilah for a few months now, and I'm ready to kick some furry butt! I was a little disappointed when she said it was a 'cute kitten' fight and that I wouldn't really be rolling around on the floor wrestling a kitten, but being cute is also one of my talents (according to my Daddy), so I'm going to do my best!

The handsome Misha is hosting the second annual 'Kitty Fight Club'. Samson was in the fight last year, and he said it's just as grueling as a tumble with Delilah. That sounds like my kinda fight!

This is the photo I entered for my first round:

I'm up against the extremely cute kitten, Virgil, from The House of Cats for the first round, so I'll need all the votes I can get. Our round starts sometime today, so please go visit Misha and vote for me by clicking here!

Tortie Tuesday

The packing mania is continuing over here chez Les Monkeys and Samson and I are the victims of a severe case of 'Packing Necessary Things too Soon' syndrome! Mommy washed and packed both of our hairy blankets!

She replaced it with one of our Boogie Mats for comfort reasons, but I don't think she realizes the implications of removing our beloved hairy blanket. Samson isn't nearly as attractive to me without the feel of the marvelous texture of Peggy's Blankies beneath my paws.

Our love nest has gone from this:

To this:

Don't bother fixing yourself up, Samson. I've got a headache.

Mancat Monday

The Easter Bunny made an appearance at our house yesterday and he left a little pink replica of himself filled with premium catnip from Jane and Alice's garden! I named him Buddy the Bunny

I gave him a proper welcome and whispered in his ear to warn him about Delilah and how rough she is with catnip bunnies.

Here comes Deli! It's better if you don't look directly into her eyes, Buddy.

Move on, Deli, nothing to see here!

It was worth a shot.

Be strong, Buddy!

Thankfully The Casbah Kitten makes very sturdy toys, because Delilah is ruthless!


P.S We are purring hard for our friend, Loki, as he's in the cat hospital with an intestinal blockage. His Nanny is very worried about him, so please join us with your purrs so he can get better soon and go home to Nanny.

Tortie T(h)ursday

Sweet Pea here!

I want to show you all how good I am at traveling. Every Friday, Samson and Delilah's Mommy comes by and picks up Daddy and I in a big machine! Usually they keep me in my PTU, but recently I've been making a fuss. Daddy insisted that I would be fine outside the PTU, and I was! Of course as soon as we got to our destination, I was put right back in the PTU so I wouldn't escape, but at least I got to sit like a human being for a little while.

I was very relaxed, even though the big cats' Mommy was worried I'd run around inside the car and cause an accident.

Daddy knows best! I just love him!
