Taking the Reins

Whoo-ha to you all, my loyal followers!

I am currently watching a horse doing some funny moves on the TV-screen. Right now it’s busy lifting one hoof slowly in the air, setting it down slowly, and then doing the same thing all over again while a lot of two-legged ones are clapping enthusiastically. Really, it’s a shame seeing a carrot muncher degrading himself in this way! Horses should have more pride and learn from us cats how to train their humans, instead of letting themselves be “dressaged” as it’s so fancily called…..

Here is a painting of a “showjumper” that ought to be in every arena to remind horses of their Inner Power:

I think this horse put on a lovely show, don’t you?

Which reminds me that it is time to take up the reins and launch myself into the Chinese New Year which just happens to be the Year of the Horse! But I guess you all knew that already, right?

It’s been the Chinese New Year since the first full moon at the end of January so by now we have all had a chance to feel its energies. A year of horsing around in lucky colours red , green and purple, sporting a jasmine buttonhole while playing on the horses marked with lucky numbers 3, 4 or 9, indulging in fun and games and adventures and making some fast decisions is what I understand it is all about.

Well, I am all for fast decisions- if I don’t like something up comes my Mighty Paw Mighty Quick! Lord Tiger got quite a surprise the other day when I EFFECTIVELY AND RAPIDLY took control over a new feathered wand…

And as for fun and games- we have plenty of those at our place being 4 lively Mouseketeers….

Sir Rufus is very good at thinking up new ways of moving stuff around and hiding things in unexpected places. Hiding behind doors and suddenly appearing is also one of his favourite passtimes.

Charlie Chaplin is our racehorse and he has incredible speed once he gets going. He is excellent at navigating- things in the living room often swing and sway dangerously once he starts galloping at maximum speed, but rarely does anything fall down and break…..And if it does we all BELIEVE it’s because bits and bobs ACTUALLY WANT to drop and break…. They were just waiting for a gentle nudge….

WOW ! Just found this painting as I was surfing the web. I want to be this feline imperial rider!!! I want to get my horse to stand up on two legs at my command and look fierce.

Sorry, feline followers, but I must be off on a moonlight canter now. But first I must dive into the warderobe and dig out a red or green riding jacket, preferrably with a number 3 or 4 on it. I must also sport a sprig of jasmine in my lapel. My steed of choice will be a stuffed toy unicorn who lives in the bedroom windowseat who I am sure is ready for a lark! Then I will be all set for a bit of cross country in the bedroom where I am gonna enjoy bounding across my Mom’s legs over and over again, rearing up all ready to go-go on my enchanted imaginary steed, my feathered wand held victoriously in the air.

It will sure be a wild ride- and a wonderful way of starting off the New Year in the spirit of the horse! Wooohaa!!!!

HALLOWEEN PHOTOFIGHT

Our MOM loves Halloween and she also loves  dressing up for the occasion. Fine, MOM- we allow you to have some fun with black lipstick, spooky eyeshadow and Morticia Addams style of dress, trying to look hairy scary LOL!

BUT-she also wants us three felines  to dress in spooky style- which we DON’t want to do! And on top of everything  be PHOTOGRAPHED  wearing some RIDCULOUS  outfit!

Last year Charlie wore  a magician’s hat which was so large that he was almost totally hidden beneath it. Lucky him! Of course it was pretty fetching since he has dramatic black and white markings in himself.

I had to pose together  with a silly bat with squinty eyes…. Bat looked happy,I did not! Yes, we were  both caught on camera in these silly outfits. Tricked but not treated if I may say so…

What about SelmaViktoria?

I think she gave our Mom a taste of her claws which are delightfully sharp and to the point…

So no Halloween photos of Selma last year…

Anyways, yesterday our MOM  was jumping around all excitedly,  cutting two holes in a large tablecloth telling us in a silly voice  that we would love wearing this stupid thing…

We think NOT! In fact me and Charlie Chaplin showed her in every possible way that this was NOT gonna happen. We did not appreciate having a tablecloth put over our heads, making us look like a pair of ghosts! So  suddenly” somebody” decided to turn the photoshoot into a photofight. I think it was Charlie that jumped on top of me, bored with the props which consisted of a  couple of sad green pumpkins and our old “friend” squinty bat:

Half Nelson by Charlie

However, a few moments later I got the upper paw and Charlie made a mighty quick gettaway:

Halloween photoshoot becomes a photofight

Poor MOM! Well, it’s all her own fault. She should have listened  in the first place, shouldn’t she?

Meanwhile Selma Viktoria took the opportunity to steal the limelight.

Here she is posing as good as gold with a couple of pumpkins :

CHILLIN WITH PUMPKINS

OK, MOM, at least you go ONE of us felines to pose for a HALLOWEEN photo this year! ‘

And Selma got quite a few treats for her effort!

Guys, have a Miauverlous Halloween and give em two-leggeds a real good scare!

PUMPKIN TIME!

Hi there, feline followers!

“The pumpkins are glowing, the skeletons dancing,

Ghosts  down the streets come prancing,

Chilling our bones with their screams,

Playing funny tricks with our dreams.

Headless monsters go creak in the night

Making us shake with delicious delirious delight!

Boooo!”

Was my poem scary for you, felines???

HALLOWEEN  is  here and I am busy getting into the mood. As I guess you all are, my followers!!!

This time of year it is so much fun with all the glowing pumpkins. My whiskers get all excited checking out the feline ones. Here are three of my favourites

1.The LOOKALIKE.This looks just like handsome magical  me so gotta LOVE it! Purr!

2. The Pink Panther goes Halloween. I love this smart and intelligent panther. He has it all:

3. The BAT CAT. Eat your heart out, Batman. Here comes the Batcat- cool, smart and supersonic!

Just wanted to share with you a piece of evidence showing that we cats are excellent pumpkin carvers. Dogs DO TRY – I say no more… Let the picture speak for itself:

Exactly!!! Well, we must remember dogs are dogs and they eat everything and wag their tails when they are happy. So this dog doesn’t really suprise me much!!!

BTW I KNOW that you are all looking forward to my Halloween outfit but PATIENCE!  I have not quite decided on my costume yet so you will have to  wait a little longer… But I promise something

SPOOKTACULAR!
