whodunnit?

sorry for the lack of posts... prada is still up to being naughty... today she was driving me insane... she spent the afternoon running around all crazy... jumping and sliding across furniture... and ruining the blinds... did i tell you that she already broke three of them? we can kiss our deposit goodbye...

anyways, good ol' daddy and i have been arguing about who's been making trouble... i say it's prada... he says it's kolohe and that i shouldn't blame prada all the time...

so along with the wonderful ornaments of the animals, came a small bag of doggie treats... i just left it in the box and left the box on the living room table... the next morning someone pulled the bag out of the box and attempted to eat it... but the bag was still sealed... of course i thought it was prada... she's the nosy one... so i threw it back in the box... the next day i find kolohe crouched on the floor next to the table... i thought he barfed up his food because he is notorious for that... i look closer and he's eating doggie treats!

so of course good ol' daddy gets on my case for blaming his beloved prada... hmmpphh... i still find her just as naughty as the day we got her...

ornaments appear on the floor every now and then even though we tried to hang them out of kitty reach... but today i caught kolohe attacking one of my very nice ornaments... he was standing on his hind legs and all, trying to knock it off... i suppose at least he tries to knock them off and not bite them like prada... i didn't tell good ol' daddy about this ordeal for he would point out that prada isn't always the one to blame... but he'll read this and eventually tell me so...

he thinks that i treat prada like cinderella... ha!

i will try to post more, but i've been somewhat busy working on getting this particular job... if i do get the job, i will reveal what it is... i hope i get it... it's the coolest job in the world... to me at least!

an early christmans present...

yesterday my husband surprised me with an early christmas present... he sure does know how to bring tears to a woman's eyes... they were handmade ornaments of the animals... if you send in pictures of your pets to this lady who makes them, she can either make custom pillows, stockings, or ornaments of your animals...

http://www.bestfriendsstudios.com/


here is kolohe... i love how it looks exactly like him... fat and bushy...
here's prada... her coloring is a little off, but that's ok... i guess in the picture that my husband sent, she looked a little brown... and we all know she's a little off the begin with... however, her little beauty mark makes up for it! she also doesn't have her blue eyes... but since her eyes are wide and dilated most of the time, they would look brown...

and here's the bestest dog in the world... yoshi... i like how she added the scarf on yoshi... and the button nose... she was also kind enough to make yoshi look thin... heehee... this is the closest i can be to her... and feel like i'm still petting her because the ornament is quite large.... i miss my dog...
because they are kind of large, i couldn't hang them in the tree... and the tree is kind of full with ornaments already... so i hung them with the stockings... also this way, prada has no chance of getting to them and destroying them...


she has been trying to tear xmas lights off of the tree and pull ornaments down.... she was biting my giraffe ornament the other day and getting mad because she couldn't pull it off of the tree... she also still likes to sleep under the tree... i wonder if she'll try to open gifts when we place them under the tree....

our morning routine...

as of late, prada has been hanging with me in the morning and being quite a sweet kitty (most of the time)... this is only because she is cold and wants to cuddle...

sometimes when i pet her and she's laying next to me, she tries to bite...

one day she found my laptop to be quite comfortable... her feet are so fat and heavy that while i was trying to chat, her resting foot kept pressing keys and making my laptop go whacko...

prada's first xmas tree...



last year we didn't get a tree for two reasons... one, we were going to be out of town... and two, we figured prada would destroy it...

this year we decided to get a tree... we continued our tradition of going to the mountains and chopping a tree down... (from a tree farm of course)... we brought the tree home and the kitties had a good sniff fest for about an hour... kolohe liked sitting under the tree... prada was curious at first, but then didn't seem to care... she tasted it here and there but this tree is kind of pokey so it deters her somewhat...

tonight we decorated the tree... she already pulled down the tree skirt because she likes to lie on it... i think she thinks it's a new comfy bed... she was also trying to knock ornaments off while we were decorating... we tried not to hang any too low where the kitties would find them interesting...

prada also likes to drink tree water... and likes to dip her paws into the tree water... i hope she gets bored of that soon...

so far so good... no leaning tree of pisa either...

prada likes to sleep under the tree...

hide and seek prada


there are times when prada will disappear and we have to scour the whole house looking for her... sometimes not even the rattle of the treat bag will lure her out...

one day i was looking all over for her... i went into the garage and called her... i heard her bell faintly but did not see her... then i see a tiny head...

she finds the weirdest places to sleep... who would've thought a box of junk could be cozy?

12.02.2009

if prada were a human bean...

good ol' daddy says this character reminds him of prada... her dance is kind of how prada walks since she seems to have a bum back leg...




in prada's case, it would be:

praaaaadaaaaa....

what....

did you steal the chicken off of ryan's plate?

yeah, and? i'll do it again!

praaaadaaaaaaaa...

what...

did you bite big brother kolohe on his butt?

sorry... now i'm going to do it again!

12.01.2009

the thievin' weasel strikes again...

we were getting ready for dinner... my son's plate is set and waiting... he turns to get a fork... he turns back... he notices his chicken drumstick is gone... we hear growling... we look... and there is the weasel with a whole chicken drumstick hanging from her mouth...

we chased her for a good five minutes... i've never seen her cling onto something so tight! good ol' daddy was yelling at her to drop it... like she understood... like she even would....

we finally cornered her and she dropped it... waste of a chicken drumstick....

we give the kitties small scraps regardless... i told good ol' daddy that prada doesn't get any due to her stunt that she pulled... of course he didn't listen and spoils the brat with some pieces of chicken...

i can't believe how fast and sneaky she is...

11.30.2009

how can people do such things?

this sweet little puppy was found by my husband's cousin and her family... they found her in a dumpster.... seems as if someone dumped her in there...

they're looking for a home for her.... they would like to keep her but they have a 12 year old hard- headed husky who's used to being an "only child"... they're hoping he'll change... the kids are already in love with her...

how can you not be? she's so adorable... shame on the ones who dumped her like she was trash...

a year ago...


a year ago, in early november, we had to put our beloved akita, yoshi, to sleep...

i was not ready for another animal to join the family... i thought it would be a while...

a year ago to this date, we had a naughty kitty enter our lives...

funny... has it only been a year? it seems like a lifetime with her antics! maybe that's why she is extra cranky today.... she's celebrating her one year of torture...

i know... i'm being dramatic...

life would be somewhat boring if we didn't have her... the little devil that is prada...

11.22.2009

another rude awakening...

good ol' daddy let you know who in the bedroom again this morning... and can you guess what happened? clawing my corner of the bed again... i got up, clapped my hands, and she just stared at me as she happily clawed away... grrrr...

we had doggie visitors today... my son's father got a new puppy... a dalmation/ beagle mix... pretty cute puppy... prada didn't want anything to do with him though... she was hiding in the garage and whenever the doggies peeked in, she would extend her paw out to swat at them... i closed the door, but not all the way... i guess she could still sense them by the door, so she would throw her weight to pop the door open just so she could hiss and swat... so evil...

kolohe and prada were having major fights tonight with one another... so bad that i finally had to separate them... so right now he is in our bedroom as princess brat is living it up in daddy's lap, wrapped in a blanket...

11.21.2009

a partial rude awakening...

this morning i woke up to prada chewing on my hair... i swatted at her and tried to move away, but i guess my hair was tasty this morning... then she proceeded to claw the corners of the bed... i keep telling daddy that that is why she is not allowed in our bedroom!!

11.19.2009

the laundry basket...



for some reason, the kitties love the laundry basket...

11.17.2009

almost makes me want to go vegan...




sad... utterly sad... i'm 1/4 chinese and am ashamed... i wonder how they fried the fish with it still being alive... so cruel...

more on declawing...

Fisher%3A+Opponents+of+declawing+cats+show+their+claws+-+San+Jose+Mercury+News

i guess from her previous article, she has received a lot of hate mail... here she defends herself... i don't know if i agree with her sources... from my previous experience with working with kitties who have been declawed, they were more mean and difficult to work with...

ohana...

if you've seen lilo and stitch, we were all touched by the moment when stitch says, "ohana means family".... of course our beloved pets are ohana...

so why am i so irritated with them today?!? i guess like regular family members, our animals can kind of get on our nerves from time to time...

this past week i lost almost half a roll of toilet paper thanks to paper shredding prada...

i caught her peeing in the bathroom sink again... i only noticed because kolohe was standing outside of the bathroom staring inside looking like, wtf?

kolohe has been driving me insane with his "starving kitty" antics... he was bugging me like there was no tomorrow and would sit right in my face or right on top of my laptop as i was trying to use it... and then meow meow meow... in his pitiful voice...

prada was all over the kitchen counters, sink, and stove... licking whatever crumbs she could find... it annoyed me so much, she spent a time out in the garage...

then over the weekend, all they did was chase each other and fight... granted one night they were very hungry because i napped through their dinner time... so their fighting included running and jumping on and over me...

gotta love them though...

11.12.2009

the pink bed...

when we first got prada, i bought her a small doggie bed because she liked to sleep in things so much and she was kind of outgrowing the kitty condos... she would sleep in it all day long...


kolohe has never liked to lay in beds and never went into the kitty condos... i think he mainly never went into the kitty condo due to the fact that he's too big... i guess one day he decided to see what it was like to sit in the bed... and ever since, it's his daily routine to lay in the bed all day... and when he's not asleep, he's staring out the window... the pictures below are from when he first decided to try the bed... you can tell that he's a rookie at it and didn't quite know how to fit in it... he is a now a pro and curls up happily in it...


it's kind of funny that he enjoys the pink bed... prada has not touched her bed since kolohe claimed it as his... when she sits in the window, she tries to fit as much as her potbelly will allow, and try not to touch the bed... stubborn she is...

11.10.2009

what's been going on...

rare moments when kolohe and prada get along... that's usually when they're looking out the window together or out the door like here... i thought it was funny that their heads are positioned the same in both pictures... i think they were watching a bluejay...

prada was extra moody today.... in the morning she was all sweet and loving... mornings are usually when she is at her best... tonight she's a brat... we were holding the kitties close to one another and kolohe licked her ear... she tried to bite him and hissed... after that they ran around and fought with each other... sometimes their fights are really bad and i have to separate them... and of course it's prada who eggs on the fights...


last night we had salmon for din
ner... the kitties were acting as if we were their best friends... of course they won tiny slivers of salmon... for some reason prada felt that she had the privilege to jump up onto the table and over my plate of food! i yelled at her and she jumped back over my plate and onto the floor... that was a first for all of us... she is also still into the weird habit of growling, swatting, and hissing at us as we offer her food... so weird...

we put everything away after dinner but good ol' daddy left the foil with salmon fat and grease on the stove... for some reason he thought prada would leave it alone.... HA!! So, we're watching tv and i hear a thump... i yell at daddy to get his brat because i knew she was on the stove... he sat there with a smirk... i got up and tiptoed to the kitchen... there she was, not even phased that i was there, licking away at orange grease... i grabbed her and took her to daddy.... all he could do was laugh because she had an orange mouth... should've taken a picture but i was lazy to get the camera...

banning cat declawing...

Fisher%3A+Cat+scratch+fever+-+San+Jose+Mercury+News

some of the cities in the state of california would like to ban cat declawing for it is cruel... i agree that it is cruel, but i'm not so sure it should be banned... prada drives me crazy with her toes in everything and i'm really sad about all the holes and scratches my leather couch has... but i wouldn't subject her to having her claws cut off.... however, the person that wrote this article kind of has a good point as well too...

11.08.2009

starving kitties...

or so you would think... the diet is supposed to be 5/8ths of a cup that is free fed through out the day for kolohe with a 1/4th of wet food mixed with dry for dinner... he is on a special diet for his urinary tract... prada should be getting 1/2 of a cup free fed through out the day, but her food never gets measured out... probably why she looks like a pot belly piglet...

why does it always seem that they are hungry?!? prada is sort of a natural scrounger... eating whatever crumbs she can find... but everytime we get up to go to the kitchen, she runs to the garage door thinking we're going to feed her... she's forever on the counters and in the sink, trying to find food...

kolohe right now is at 14 lbs. and the doctor said that's okay... he could lose a pound or two...

today he was driving me insane... i gave him all of his food and he was still hungry! he was giving me his sad meow, informing me that he was hungry! when he's hungry he really bugs too... he will also give small love bites to let you know how hungry he is... we finally just dumped food in his bowl and he actually ate it all... so today's total was maybe 1 and 1/2 cups... he also had some treats...

dinner time is horrendous too... partly our fault because we'll give small table scraps... they hang around us... little kitty heads pop up at the table... sometimes it's so bad we have to lock them up... usually they get fed the same time we eat dinner so they're not as much as nuisance...

just drives me crazy that the way they act, you'd think they were starving!

I Can Has Swine Flu? A Cat Comes Down with H1N1

I Can Has Swine Flu? A Cat Comes Down with H1N1

i thought i previously read that our beloved pets would be safe from this.... i guess not... kind of scary...

daddy's naughty brat...

also daddy's spoiled brat.... prada is up to her weird antics again... the other day she pooped in the sink... the litter box is cleaned daily... what, does she want us to clean it hourly for her? brat...

she has been daddy's palsy walsy lately... as you may know, she's not really a cuddly kitty for she is still somewhat feral and doesn't like to be touched or held so much... but lately she's been cuddling with daddy... i guess that's when you know that the weather is getting colder... she's looking for heat...

so for the first time she slept in the bed with us... kolohe was mad... he usually sleeps with me and lets me use him as a pillow... prada was right in the middle, hogging the bed and blanket.... so i had the joy of freezing my butt off til about five in the morning when she woke up and left...

she also ate a spider the other day as well...

as i'm pulling my hair out over her, daddy smiles, laughs, and spoils her even more....

11.02.2009

happy belated halloween...

got the kitties simple costumes, for this was the first year i dressed up kolohe and the first for prada as with every thing else in her life so far...

kolohe had a bandana with skulls on it... we laughed because you could barely see it on him... he's just too bushy... he was very good about wearing it... didn't mind it at all... well... partially didn't mind... i like the expression on his face... heehee...

prada on the other hand, wasn't too happy... i was surprised that i was able to get on her jester collar in the first place... she ran around all wild and was wrestling with herself, trying to get it off... heehee... it was funny to watch her... she even hid from me when i was trying to get a picture of her... here she is with her "stink eye" stare...
then she got tired of running around for a brief moment, so i took it as a photo op...

10.29.2009

national cat day...

happy national cat day! we will be off later to by them gifts... even if the devil doesn't deserve one... i'm sure daddy will beg to differ...

just some pictures to show the personality differences of them...

kolohe sleeping... in the same spot where our akita used to sleep... i think he misses her... here he is very gentleman like...

and here's prada right after playing with one of her favorite toys which is a ball in a track kind of dealie... notice how she's not very ladylike...

10.28.2009

thievin' weasel take 2...

so last night i had a bowl with tostino pizza rolls in it... i didn't finish the last two because they weren't that good... i guess they're only good when you're drunk...

i'm on my laptop and i see ms. prada creep towards the bowl... i kicked at her and told her to get away... she stayed where she was with her eyes fixated on me... i kicked again... next thing you knew, in one quick swoop, she grabbed a pizza roll and was off... brat... my husband laughed and told me it was my own fault because i should know that she is sneaky, has no fear, and doesn't care when i yell at her...

tonight she was on the kitchen counter enjoying some spaghetti sauce off of a ladle... one would think that we were starving her or something....

10.27.2009

thievin' weasel...

prada has a new nickname... the thievin' weasel... she has been very sneaky as of late... stealing kolohe's food (even though ol' daddy defends her by saying that kolohe steals her food)... on the kitchen counters and kitchen table...

today was funny though... i was eating cream puffs... the small kind that you defrost and then enjoy... so i ate all but one and left it on the coffee table... i left to go get my son from school... because why would kitties touch a cream puff? came back home... and i noticed the empty bowl... i had to think, did i eat it? or did someone else eat it? when i came in, i did notice her grumbling but i didn't know why and i didn't see her with anything in her mouth.... my son then said that prada was growling in the bathtub and it looked like she had a piece of hot dog bun in her mouth... he got it and low and behold it was a cream puff...

in other kitty news... kolohe barfed like four times today... i hope he has no obstruction... we just came from the vet over the weekend because his allergies are acting up and his back left leg is bruised and irritated looking... he's on antibiotics but i haven't given it to him since he's been puking.... then i also don't know if he's puking because someone named daddy gave them a bunch of chicken last night... so tonight it was a dollop of cottage cheese for dinner in hopes that his stomach will calm down...

my apologies once again for the delay in posts... i have lots of good pictures to put up as well as some videos... and i'm hoping to get that done.... if only facebook games didn't take up so much of my time! heehee...

need an animal sitter?

we always enjoy when we get to babysit for our friends' animals... this past weekend we sat for a little rat terrier/chihuahua mix puppy... her name is dakota... she is a happy go lucky dog... very sweet and very cuddly!

the funny thing was we're not used to small dogs... she was basically the same size as prada and of course kolohe was huge compared to her... so it was also funny that the cats were trying to hide from her all weekend... or stared down at her, perched high above for safety... a few times prada got brave and even chased her around the house... i guess she can handle dogs her size more than big dogs...

another thing we weren't used to was having a puppy.... she chewed on everything! she found things i didn't even knew existed and chewed on them! she totally demolished a pencil.... and found some tie straps that she started chomping on... she even tried to chew the "do not remove" tag off of a blanket! and she also chewed apart her harness! while it was on her! i thought she had caught her teeth on it... but no... she was chewing on it! she wasn't quite house trained either but that was ok... we have cats that cough up hair balls... same kind of clean up...

we took her to the dog park and she had a blast out there... she is quite the people person.... she would just go up to people and randomly jump into their laps... it was kind of embarrassing.... good thing most animal owners are friendly and thought it was cute...

oh... i also forgot to mention that she slipped under our fence while in the backyard and ended up in our neighbor's yard... it was sort of a dilemma because it was early in the morning and we didn't want to disturb the neighbors.... luckily they were awake and we went back there to get her...

yes, it was quite a weekend with such a tiny dog! but she was very sweet... it was hard to stay mad at her=o)

9.21.2009

the box kitty...

prada really loves boxes and any small space that she can get into and hide... my son makes tents for her all the time and she actually sleeps in them... she'll even go as far as to protect her sanctuaries from big brother kolohe.... she'll swat at him when he comes to check out her property...

before we get to the box pictures, prada has been her usual self... on the counter, finding crumbs... we were letting her into our bedroom for a while until i kept catching her claw the corner of our bed! i discovered a time where she can be a decent kitty... seems to be that her best mood is in the morning... then she sleeps most of the day... then when daddy gets home, she acts up.... and he laughs and thinks it's cute as i am fuming over the trouble she is making...

the following box pictures aren't of her in the box, but shows her oral fixation that she has.... the first picture shows a nice punture of the two canines... vampire prada...



then here is a picture of how she just chewed down the edge of the box.... she was a busy kitty...


9.09.2009

wow... a month went by?

my apologies for not keeping up to date... of course i was on vacation... and then my vacation got somewhat extended because since we were flying stand- by, we kept getting bumped off flights... of course i had no arguments... but it was a waste of half a day and tiring to keep going back and forth to the airport...

then upon returning home, i hurt my left shoulder... went to the doctor and he said it seemed that i had shoulder tendinitis... so i was out of commission for a while... and actually, it still kind of hurts=o(...

let's see... prada is still the same... she's one year and one month old... and still a ball of fire... kolohe has been more sneaky... he lost some weight while i was gone so he's more agile now... which is a good thing i guess...

we were debating on getting a cat tree... but since my parents moved to hawaii, we inherited furniture and the cats have been having fun jumping on that...

they are also still trying to sneak outside...

here are some pics sent via phone while i was still in hawaii...



8.08.2009

happy cat day!




happy cat day! i am missing my kitties dearly even though i am here in paradise... the weekend report so far is that kolohe was intertwined in the blinds in the window... prada loves to do this too... this could end up to us either replacing blinds or not getting our deposit back when we decide to move out...



here is kolohe being clingy with my husband... he does this to me too all morning long...


no pictures of prada sent via mobile phone... i guess she behaves with my husband... go figure... .

however, the other day my husband and a friend of his came back from lunch and his friend did not close the screen door well... my husband noticed that the door was open and no kitties were to be found... he goes out to the front porch and prada was sitting there by the door... she saw him and then ran into the house... kolohe was still missing... my husband goes around the corner to the gate and sees kolohe clinging onto the fence, scared, not knowing what to do... so he had to rescue him...

hopefully they won't try to sneak out again... this is the second time... the other time i was feeding birds and i thought i closed the door enough, but kolohe pawed it open, came outside, and prada followed... when i turned around, they both saw me and ran in the house...

8.05.2009

on vacation in hawaii...

but i had to share this before i forgot about it...

prada is still at her worst... one day i came home from a doctor's appointment and she was waiting at the front door... as i was thinking how cute it was of her to be waiting at the door, she casually walks over to the couch, stretches as far as she can, and attempts to claw the couch as if it were her scratching post!! i can't believe she did that.... she did it so nonchalantly too... leather couch now has new holes in it... grrr...

one early morning i jumped up in bed because i heard a loud crash in the kitchen... of course my husband slept through it and i had to wake him up and tell him i thought someone was in the kitchen... he gets up and goes to investigate.... prada had been on the counter and knocked down a pyrex baking dish from the dish drainer.... good thing it didn't break! it was a very nerve rattling experience though!

when i landed in hawaii, i had a picture text from my husband... my poor kolohe was lonely and all cuddled in his lap=o(

8.02.2009

weekend report...

kind of a busy weekend with the cats... funny how they can rule your world... they ran around all crazy, beating each other up... kolohe only will drink water from the tub faucet and now prada has picked up on that idea and will only drink water from there as well...

prada was missing for a bit... found her curled up in a laundry basket and she almost couldn't get out because she was buried under clothes... she is still scared of dogs... my son's dad came over with his little min pin and prada just stared from thirty feet away all bristly... at least she wasn't hissy...

speaking of hissy, she was in a bad mood the other day... it was dinner time and i guess she was cranky... so i fed kolohe... and as she was being nosy and trying to go after his food, i picked her up to carry her out of our room... as i tried to put her down, she hissed at me and tried to bite my face! she then ran into the garage... so i told my son to feed her because she was going to kill me... he opened the garage door and she ran forward hissing and swatting her paws... so her punishment was she had to wait for her dinner... then my husband fed her... she seems to like him best...

discovered that kolohe loves to play with balled up tissue paper... he looked so cute playing as if he were a kitten again...

we brought the kitties outside in the backyard today... they lounged in their carriers... i know, kind of lame but they enjoyed it... i only have one harness so i felt bad if kolohe had his on and prada either couldn't come outside or be in a carrier... this way it seemed equal...

7.30.2009

nosy prada...

i was cleaning the house... vacuuming and mopping... prada was so curious yet she kept her distance... she did run though when i came too close to her with the vacuum... when kolohe sees the vacuum he hides... he hates it... so i thought it was funny to see prada out the corner of my eye while i was cleaning... she didn't like the mop either when it got too close...

i then finished and went to go rinse out the mop... as we all know when prada hears the water in the tub running, she comes running out of no where to come and play with the water... so she did that at the same moment that i whacked her head with the mop... whoops.... i didn't mean to... i was turning to put it in the bucket and she ran into it...

7.29.2009

who ate the hot dog buns?


most of the time we're good about putting away things in the fridge or microwave... i guess we used the microwave and forgot to put a package of hot dog buns back in the microwave... even though they were placed on top of the microwave, someone gracefully climbed up there and knocked them down to the floor...

if kolohe got to it, he would've been in one of his sick modes from ingesting plastic... and besides, he's too fat to get to the top of the microwave... the bag was also dragged about four feet across the floor... kolohe is not that persistent...

so.......... who else do we have as a suspect? hot dog bun bag was shredded... buns shredded... crumbs everywhere.... sounds like her...

7.28.2009

the toilet paper battle...


continues...

so we try to make a point of closing the bathroom door each time so that prada can't shred toilet paper... well, this morning my husband thought she was out of the bathroom, so he closed the door... i guess she was hiding in the bathtub...

i wake up, go to the bathroom, see her sleeping on the bathroom rug and also see shredded toilet paper... so now we have to make sure she's not hiding in the tub...

why can't she just unravel? unraveling is fine... shredding is not! at least you can salvage unraveled toilet paper!

sad facts...

this was taken from a blog that i read frequently thoughts fur paws... some sad facts about loving, caring animals...

“In the U.S. alone, nine billion animals are raised in the most egregious factory farm conditions and brutally slaughtered for food every year. On top of that, we hunt 200 million animals annually, kill 20 million in research and testing, another 18 million for dissection, 4 - 5 million so we can kid ourselves that we look sexy in their fur and 5 million dogs and cats die each year in shelters because we treat them as disposable.”

why can't we figure out better ways to lower these numbers? like moderation with slaughterhouses... i'm sure we don't go through that much meat... and for research and dissection, use the animals from the animal shelter (gosh i feel bad for saying that but i think 5 million animals going to that is better than 38 million right?)

mr. bunny...


one day when i was living with my grandma, i came home and noticed a bunny in the yard... of course i have to try and befriend and touch any animal i see that seems homeless... he was actually rather tame and he came right on over to me when i brought him out some baby carrots... so i lured him into the animal carrier with some more carrots and in he went...

then, i didn't know what to do with him... he was so sweet and dignified though, i almost wanted to keep him... but i had kolohe and yoshi at the time and we were trying to find a place to live that catered to animals, so i had to do what i really didn't want to do- take him to the humane society...

i took him there and they didn't want to take him because i found him in a different city... i was like oooookay... now what? because they had built a newer humane society "closer" to where i found him, i were to take him there...

i called my husband and complained that i didn't want to leave him at any humane societies... so as he is the fixer of all things, he found someone at work that was willing to give him a home... i dropped him off at his workplace and he just placed him in a box... i guess the bunny was pretty strong because he hopped out and started hopping all over the place freaking out my husband and his boss...

at least a home was found for him... my job had been done... i do wonder how he's doing.... he was such a nice bunny...

feeling special and touched...

as i was reading through my daily blogs today, i discovered that i received an award! honestly, i didn't think that my blog was really out there being read and maybe even bringing some entertainment... so thank you keiko and luna for reading and thinking about us!



it means "your blog doesn't stink" and recipients of the award must link the blogger who passed it on to them and also pick five more blogs to pass on the joy to...

here are the five that kolohe and prada chose at random because we read so many wonderful blogs out there:







thanks again!

one way to cool off...


when kolohe was in his lighter days, this is where he liked to cool off and nap at the same time... now he's too fat to either make the jump into the sink or can't fit into it comfortably...

hot weather...

couple of bad things when the weather is warmer.... prada is more moody... and we have to open windows for fresh air and ventilation... of course this wouldn't be a bad thing.... too bad prada tries to chase things outside of the window, jumping on the screens, popping them out or scaling the screens and ripping tiny holes... and as for the kitchen window, she actually ripped out some of the screen from the top of the frame... yeah, we're not going to get our deposit back on this place when it comes time to leave...

flies...

i'm sad to say that i lost another fourth of a role of toilet paper... i guess i forgot to close the door to the bathroom last night... but i shouldn't have to remember to close the door! i should just be able to leave the bathroom as is and not have to worry about toilet paper!! ok... that was my rant...

yesterday my husband was in and out of the garage, letting a few flies in... as him and his friend were about to leave to go mountain biking, his friend was looking in the garage and asked if the cats like to hang out there... i told him they're really only in there to use the litter boxes... they left and i go peek in on the cats... they're sitting there, quietly but focused... they were following flies around... it was funny because i've never seen them do something together...

somehow the flies made their way into the house (the garage door stays a crack open so cats can go in and out) so the cats were chasing them throughout the house... the only bad thing was prada scaled one of the screens putting small holes in it.... nail trim time...

it is quite amazing to watch how focused and strong their eyesight is... sometimes i'm staring at them like what the heck are you looking at?

i have lots of pictures to post with other stories but i can never find the right usb cord to upload them because we have so many that goes to different things and my husband just leaves them all over the place...

ahoy counter top...

prada on the counter eating spaghetti noodles... as i tried to catch her in the act, she jumped off... but evidence was hanging out of her mouth... i never have the camera when i need it the most...

7.14.2009

passed out prada...


just wanted to share a pic of prada during one of her passed out moments... at times she likes to stretch out as far as possible, making herself look like a lanky weasel...

7.13.2009

peepee prada...

prada has picked up another bad habit... i do not know the underlying cause... behavior or something or other... anyways... my husband was passing by the bathroom and saw prada in the sink... peeing in the sink...

we don't know if she has been doing this often and never caught it or if it's a recent thing... we were wondering because when she does play in the sink, she scratches like she's in a litter box... but if she were constantly peeing in the sink, wouldn't the sink smell?

either way, what the hell... i have never, ever dealt with such a weird ass cat... and to think that i had a dream that she died and i actually shed tears over her...

a picture from memory lane...


i believe it was two summers ago, or whenever the simpsons' movie came out, only a few lucky seven elevens were converted into quickie marts... we were fortunate enough to have one of those near by where we lived... i took my son there, stood in line, and saw what they had to offer...

we came home with squishies and somehow one got knocked over... who would've known dogs like squishies... i was going to get mad, but yoshi helped a lot with the clean-up...

silly girl...

have i mentioned how prada plays and goes wild at one hundred percent then passes out completely wherever she is at that moment?

she has a new sleeping spot... in the bathroom on the floor mat... she even claws it so that a corner of the mat comes up and makes a pillow for her head...

so far we have not lost any toilet paper for this week...

7.06.2009

the house survived... barely...

house was in tact for the most part... prada seemed to have missed us... my kolohe definitely missed me... as i entered the house, he came running towards me... unfortunately my poor boy has a limp... he has allergies on and off and right now his left paw is all inflamed...

have gone through almost two toilet paper rolls in about a week... i swear i've been closing the door at night.... why must she shred the good toilet paper?!?

kitties still chasing each other like crazy...

prads still in and out of paper bags and boxes...

prads still biting and scratching... time for a toe nail trim...

kitties shedding like crazy because no one was home to pet them 24/7...

i guess kolohe was so lonely, he won't leave me alone and has to cuddle with me... so i have been covered in his hair...

6.26.2009

dust-off...

which i found out can also be used as prada-off... another tactic i discovered when i find her on counter tops... she hates it... it's cold, a blast of air and a scary noise... have i finally won? maybe not entirely because she still jumps on counters... but it is less frequent...

will be out next week... mini vacation to disneyland... hopefully the kitties will behave... hope the furniture stays in tact and who will spoil king kolohe?

6.25.2009

never bite the hand that feeds you...

kitties get hungry... my husband only feeds them a small amount in the morning... kolohe is easier to feed because he lets you know it... prada only bugs when she's really really hungry...

it wasn't quite dinner time for them yet and i was going to give prada a small snack... so we go to where her bowl is and as i bend down, she screeches, hisses and swats at me...

no snack for her... brat...

paper bag prada 2...

oh for the love of paper bags...

one day prada was playing in a paper bag... this particular bag has handles on it... for some reason she things she can slink in and out of the handles...

as she did this, she got stuck... and panicked... so the handle ripped off and was stuck around her neck... this freaked her out even more... she ran around the house all crazy... i tried to assist her but i was laughing too hard... that and she wouldn't let us near her... finally she got it off and went to go hide in the garage...

below we had to stage the photos because when the actual event happened, it happened too fast for me to get photos... but these photos are just as funny...

paper bag prada...

today was a warm day... so prada is in one of her extra moody hissy fits...

anyways, prada is very fond of paper and plastic bags... she even tries to squeeze into small ones... i think she likes the sound of the bags because perhaps it reminds her of the crunchy leaves that she used to sleep on when she was out on her own...

a few pics of prada in bags...

two dumb dumb heads...

one evening my husband thought it would be nice to carry prada outside.... squirrel-y prada who doesn't like to be held much in the first place...

so i'm sitting inside, watching tv... i hear the roar of a car, a bang against the screen door, and witness scared-y cat kolohe streaking to the back of the house... i glance behind me and i see my husband's shadow dashing across the front window...

prada was loose...

i come out yelling and asking what happened... apparently the loud car that went by spooked prada that led her to twisting out of my husband's grip and at first she tried to run back into the house, but the screen door was closed, so she crashed into it... she then dashed around the corner of the house... she was extremely scared and cowered behind the trash bin... she also wouldn't let my husband pick her up... he had to use his sweatshirt to cover her and grab her...

i told him she's never allowed outside again... thank god she doesn't know how to climb a fence... we could've had a harder time catching her...
