Nip time never gets old

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First off I wanna say how sorry I am that I missed my last Monday’s blog post. Mom L and I were all set to get down to writing, but then I had a really bad pain in my right hind leggie and Mom L and Dad P dashed me off to our best animal emergency hospital. It always happens on a Sunday, right? Long story short, it seems I have a soft tissue injury likely gotten when I was trying to get away from that little foster introoder Pipsqueak. He is a five month old black kitten who is always tryin’ to sniff my tail or my butt. Sheeesh! I got some pain meds and that helped lots, but then I had to make another last minute trip to my regular vet two days later. I have a urinary tract infection, perhaps caused by stress?

I am lots better now, but I am still spending most of my daytime napping behind the couch. I am very cautious around the foster Pip. He is such a gentle kitten, not aggressive at all. I just don’t want another kitten to get used to; Katie was enough. Hopefully he will find his true forever home soon!

Now on to my happy nip post! Even an old gal like me, at 14 years, can still enjoy some sniffin’ and pawin’ at nip, right? Mom L loaded up the scratcher on our ball chasin’ toy and sat back to see who would try the nip out first. Guess who??? ME!!!

Mom L wasn’t fast enough to catch me rubbing my face in the nip, all she got were my “what’cha lookin’ at” looks!! MOL

You interrupted me!!

And she got another one trying to capture me enjoying myself!

Come on Mom L; cut out that photo stuff!

We sure did get some great video of Katie havin’ a total Nip Out! She wasn’t gonna share that nip with anyone, not even her new buddy foster kitten Pipsqueak.

Katie was too busy to even notice Mom L and her camera.

She was happy to touch noses with foster Pipsqueak but she wasn’t movin’ over to let him onto that scratcher.

When Katie stopped, she just kind’a stared off into space for a bit! Silly Katie.

Whoa!! Why is the room spinning??

When was the last time you had a nip attack??

Katie’s First Art Project

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

First I am so sorry I didn’t post my Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. Mom L injured her right index finger and could not type for me.  She is lots better, but if you find silly typos in this post, please ignore, Ok?!

Right! Moving on to the amazing start of a potential artist in our furramily.

Our Sunday morning started off pretty much as usual, kitties snoozing in our unmade bed.

Mom L thought Katie looked bored so’s she opened up a cat game on her iPad to see if Katie might enjoy it. I know I sure did the first time I tried it. That squeekie mousie is really fast on  that screen.

Examining her palette

I am sharing a couple of her photos from her first experience, but if you are in a hurry, just skip forward to the slideshow to view all her actions captured by Mom L.

Hmmm…I can see that I need more paw whacks in the top

You see every times Katie paw whacks that schmousie running around the screen, she makes a random color splatter.

Hmmm… maybe just a touch down here will add to the interest of my color palette

Here is the entire art project in a short slide show.

And here is Katie’s final product. Isn’t it beautiful?

Katie struggles with choices

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I gotta tell you guys, that KK aka Katie is a crazypants silly kitty! Why she struggles to make up her mind what she wants to do with all that energy she has. What toy to play with first? What scratcher to use now? Who do I chase, Savvy or TKS? On and on her choices go.

She has a favorite cardboard scratcher lounge that Mom L got her when she first came to my castle in 2018. It is a bit of a wreck now but KK still loves it best, especially for her “posing place” and “napping place”.

Posing

And then there is her napping pose.

Zzzzzzzz

Now you know how much she adores her cardboard scratcher lounger thingy, right? So here is where a fun thing happened. KK just could not decide whether to enjoy her scratcher OR enjoy one of her other favorite toys, the tower of spinning balls!

Hey wait a minute! I’m not sure if I wanna stay on my scratcher or whap the balls!!

Then she just became more undecided.

Hmmm—I seem to be losing grip on my scratcher but just look at that ball whapper toy!!

Then she started to make a decision.

I’m gonna scratch!

Then she hesitated over that decision.

Oh gosh! I still think I wanna whap those balls

Until finally she combined both!

KK is such a silly dilly kittie and she amuses all of us with her indecision about which toy attracts her the most. Do you ever have trouble deciding which of your toys you like best? Let’s hear from you in comments purrlease!
