It's All Fun and Games Until the Kitten Grows Up

 


 


DORI
: Welcome to Kick the Litter, a new feature here on It’s a Wonderpurr Life where members of our family, comprised of cats from varying backgrounds, generations, and breeds, gather each week to mix humor with intelligent debate over Hot Topics that pertain to not only us, but to cats in general all over the world. Hi evfurrybuddy, I’m yoor host, Dori, the Baba Wawa of the cat blogging world. *wavy paws*



HERMAN
: Each week we choose our topics with the intention of educating human caretakers, many of whom have the wrong impression about caring for cats. Sadly, it’s an uphill battle, but we hope our debates will bring awareness and open dialogues among humans to benefit us all. Today’s Hot Topic is one that hits home with our family.




CRUEL ABANDONMENT OF UNWANTED FUR KIDS



CANDY:
Over the past few weeks we’ve heard several conversations between my parents over someone they know who got rid of their cat or dog because it grew into something that didn’t fit into the life they envisioned with their pet.


OPIE: I hate that word. Pet. It makes us sound like we’re possessions. Owned, like a lamp or a couch.

Herman's ManCat Cave

 Once Upon A Time...

Anipals loved to pawty and had Wonderpurr Adventures. And no one loved pawties and adventures more than Herman TattleCat. 

After Herm and Belle got meowied  on Mackinac Island, Michigan with their huge wedding trending Number One on Twitter, they moved into their first home. There Herman built himself an awesome ManCat Cave. 

He was so proud of his ManCat Cave that he made it part of the tour when he and Belle threw their first party. You're welcome to join the tour. You might even recognize some familiar faces among the guests.


No Pink Poufs allowed in ManCat Cave!
I'm talkin' to you, PhiBotticelli.

Today’s subject for discussion is especially dear to those of us on this panel because five years ago this week we nearly lost a beloved member of our fam—


RABBIT
: <zooms into room and jumps onto couch, knocking Herman to the floor> I’m here! What did I miss?

DORI: Nothing. Yoo aren’t on today’s discussion panel.

HERMAN: <eases to feet> Do you have any idea how rude you really are?

RABBIT: I’m not rude, I’m enthusiastic. So, what’s today’s Hot Topic? Why are cats afraid of cucumbers?

HERMAN: Don’t be stupid.

RABBT: I wasn’t one of over forty thousand Googling that question last month, dude.

HERMAN: Today’s Hot Topic is:

Feline Urinary Blockages Can Be Deadly

RABBIT: Naw. That’s not a good topic. How about Do Cats Fart?  Ten thousand average searches on Google last month. Lotsa people desperate to find the source of a bad smell in their living rooms.

Thirsty Squirrels and Easter Breakfast




Dearest Friends, Well, it’s been a Wonderpurr week at my house, the place where I live. I hope yoo are feeling encouraged by the approach of Spring, even if it’s dwagging it’s foots in yoor part of the world. Please treat yoorself to a pwetty potted tulip to cheer up yoor room dΓ©cor. No lilies cuz they are toxic to all who nom them, but yoo already know that.

At my house we went for weeks without any rain, so much so that my momma began to worry about Sassy Squirrel who lives in the tree behind our catio. I overheard her ask Daddy, “Are they getting enough water?” Daddy – who has been married long enough to know where Mom was going with this question – replied, “I’m sure Mother Nature is taking care of them just fine.”

“Mother Nature is a temperamental bee-atch,” Momma replied. “Look at the death and destruction from the tornadoes she sent to Mississippi and Arkansas.”

We lived in Mississippi on the Memphis border up until three years ago. Yoo don’t want to fool around with them tornados.
