Xanthe's Late Night Report

Meow to All!

*Meow* Nishiko and Me can jump higher each day! We can jump onto the Kitchen Tops now! We have seen so many things before Mummy and Daddy have put them away *Meow*.

Mummy and Daddy are checking up on us more often now than ever especially when we sneak off into the Kitchen... My favorite place in on top of the Big White Machine that keeps all the food for Mummy and Daddy. There is a box on top of the Big White Machine with little boxes inside it that keeps changing every day or two! It's nice to go there to relax and sleep *Purrs*. Sometimes I even share it with Nishiko.

There are lots of sponges in the Kitchen too! Nishiko is particular fond of sponges but now Mummy and Daddy hide them from us. We can't find them anywhere now. But it is fun exploring the tops. We never know what crumbs we're going to find on them but we're both seem to be getting sore tummies seen trying the different crumbs and Mummy is worried about the smells coming from the litterbox...

Nishiko's Tittery Tuesday

I've been sulking today...

Why, you may be asking? Well, Mummy forgot to do my Monday Update, yesterday! That's why!

I sat on her desk in front of her flat box with lots of buttons on it while she was doing other things on her multicoloured flat box. I tried to get in her way. I meowed at her and sat on the flat box with lots of buttons on it. But she just moved Me to one side and said "it's too late now darling" and apologised to Me and said "we'll do something tomorrow". *Meow*

Then today just before kitty bickie time Mummy yelled at Daddy and they got all panicky and then suddenly they put My Dear Xanthe and Me into our Kitty Carrier and we were taken by foot along the horrible path - with all the scarey noisy machines on wheels next to it - to the V-E-T! Daddy's Mummy couldn't take us in her machine on wheels like usual but met us there to take us home. My Dear Xanthe and Me were horrified! The V-E-T stuck that thing up both of our bottoms. Oh it was horrible! It was painful! Then a prick on the back of our necks! For the first time I realised what a woofy was, too! *Meow*

I was not pleased.

I've been weeing on the carpet again to show how displeased I am. I was trying to cover up one of my 'accidents' this afternoon and ended up having an argument with Mummy about Me not wanting to go in the litterbox but I just wanting to cover things up. I go Mummy very confused! *Meow*

But one curious thing that Mummy has been doing is that she has been designing a book for her and Daddy. A book with pictures of My Dear Xanthe and Me! Oh, I think it's looking pretty good. I want to share the website with all you Kitizens so that you can get your Mummys and Daddys to create books of you! Then we can all be famous together! *purrs*

Ok, I suppose I should show my Cuteness to you now that I've said my part...

Purrs to you all!

Xanthe's Thursday Update

Meow to All!

It was Daddy's birthday yesterday day! Happy Birthday to My Daddy! *Meow meow meow* He got lots of colourful cards which Mummy put up high so that Nishiko and me can't get to them and chew them. Mummy let Nishiko and me choose a present each to give to him which I think he liked receiving too. Mummy called them books. Daddy likes reading lots and lots of books! Books makes peoples very smart! Daddy is the smartest man I know! *purrs* So Nishiko and me were very good with Daddy yesterday.

Mummy gave me a clawicure today. She trimmed all my claws and even filed them which felt funny. She said she was bored being at home with her bad back even when Nishiko and me try to keep her busy. Nishiko isn't too fond of the clawicure. I'm only just getting used to it.

Oh dear! The other day Daddy and Mummy put Nishiko and me in the big pink bowl full of water! It was horrible and we both got very wet and spent a lot of time grooming ourselves to get dry afterwards. But Mummy made it up to us afterwards by doing a photoshoot which she says she'll post this weekend. So make sure you look out for that...

Nishiko's Monday Update (late edition)

Purrs to all!

Tis is a photo of me on my Daddy's back. I think Daddy's shoulders and back are really comfortable and I can see a lot from up there. Plus his hair tickles my nose and is nice to chew on *purrs*

Mummy is still off work with her bad back, she told us that she'll be off for the whole of this week, so My Dear Xanthe and me will need to keep her busy! If anyone has any ideas on how we can do this please let us know as my usual weeing on the carpet seems to be having the wrong effect on her *meow*

Mummy came home from the human V-E-T today with some treats for Xanthe and me. New kitty bickies! Very tasty! Royal Canin? Very tasty! Mummy says we are only allowed a few each day to make them last, which is ok I suppose. Mummy also bought Your Cat Magazine, September issue, which she says she's going to read it to us when Daddy is out at work this week so that we can learn things! Ooo... I get to tell you interesting things about us Kitizens in future posts, ooo...

I would like to say at this point, congratulations to Harley who won the Cutest Cat Photo Contest on Facebook *purrs* Well done Handsome Harley, hehe... I came in a good 7th place, which I am quite proud of...

That's all from me tonight, I'm off to play with Xanthe.

Diego and Miracle or littermates, Stormo and Greamer are sisters!

Miracle gave birth to her first litter of 4 Kittens 5 weeks ago. There are 2 females and 2 males. There names are M.J, Darcy, Indie and Hunter. Darcy and Indie will soon be moving into there new home with their auntie-cat, Diego and Stormo. So they won't be far from there litter mates! Oh it's just one big happy family over there! *smiles*

Greamer tells me that the kittens are so playful and that Miracle is looking after them well.

Here's a photo of the cheeky little Kittens, aren't they adorable?! Indie is having a nibble on M.J's bottom! *lol*

Xanthe's Thursday Update

Meow to All!

I hope everyone is well tonight?

OMC! Congratulations to handsome Misha, the Next Top Cat Model for New Zealand. I feel so lucky to be part of a group of multi-talented Kitizens... Daisy, I liked your Catnip Haiku, I asked Mummy if she could teach me to become a Kitizen Poet, she said that it might take some time but she'll give it a go *purrs*... Fin, you are lovely and a little daring... I'm exploring the sink at the moment, still not to sure about the water that comes out of the silver hole!... Dante? So handsome for an older Cat but are you sure you're not a Lion? *meow* Ooo...

My Mummy is poorly again. She has bad pains in her back. She cries out at times. She can't stand for long. She lies down or sits in her Computer Chair. She can't play with us alot. So Nishiko and I cuddle up to her when we can to keep comfy *purrs* On her Computer Chair *purrs* Mummy got into the big sink today. It was filled with lots of water and white stuff. She was still in pains as she cried out abit when she was in there. Nishiko and I kept an eye on her from a distant. Daddy was out at the time. But Daddy has been home looking after Mummy too. We're one big happy family.

Nishiko is nudging me... hold on... what?

Tell them about my contest and Handsome Harley!

Alright and then I've got to go.

Thank you! *meow*

Nishiko is at 6th place and we had a nice surprise this morning as we found Handsome Harley in 7th! Now Nishiko still wants Citizens and Kitizens to vote for her but she wants them to vote for Handsome Harley too! So now we have two links for you to click on:

I reckon Nishiko has a crush on Harley!

With that I say my goodbyes and go to cuddle up with My Daddy.

Wordy Wednesday

Hello Everyone!

Isn't it all going so well? I'm have fun, Don's having fun and the girls are whizzing around the house having a great time! *smiles*

Xanthe and Nishiko have started to claim my PC chair as their own for the better part of the evenings this week and here is a picture to prove it...

Nishiko and Xanthe in Mummy's Computer Chair

I've ended up perching on a cushion on the floor, with my chin resting on the desk! *lol*

I feel like I'm becoming more cat like each week or rather more in sync with the girls each week. We seem to understand each other. Yesterday, I was on the floor on all fours chasing the girls around with a toy! hehe... The most fulfilling part of it is when the Kittens run up to you when you come home from work in the evenings, crying 'Hello Mummy!' and asking for a cuddle and a play before being fed. Yeah, I'm having great fun and I love them to bits...

Nishiko is doing very well in her current photo contest, for those who are following it, you'll be aware that she's made it to 6th place in just a matter of 2 days and there are 4 more days of voting to go! So for those of you who would still like to vote for her and help her reach 1st place *lol* here's the link to her voting page:

I don't think you actually need to sign into Facebook to vote, just click the big green vote button and it'll add you're IP address to the voting poll.

Well that's it from me tonight, I hope you're all well.

Hugs and kisses,

Kitty xxx

Nishiko's Monday Update

Purrs to All!

Thank you all for your messages. I like reading them all. It's nice to know that there are Kitizens out there who are just a chatty as we are. *purrs*

My Dear Xanthe and I were put under a bit of stress, yesterday. Our claws have been shortened and blunted! We can't climb as well as we could a couple of days ago. No curtain climbing, not even a trouser leg! It is quite furrustrating!

Xanthe was most surprised as Daddy took hers off when she was napping. When she woke up she couldn't do a thing. Poor Xanthe. Meanwhile, I was awake during the whole proceedure. Mummy and Daddy was holding me down and telling me how good I was, even though I was crying and wanting to get away. But they fed me my favorite kitty bickies afterwards.

Xanthe didn't win her photo contest on facebook. She wasn't as upset as Mummy was. For those who want to know the top three winners - who weren't as cute as My Dear Xanthe and my Mummy's Photo *meow* here is the link:

OMC! Mummy told me that there is now another contest on facebook and that she's entered a picture of me! It's a photo contest for the Cutest Kitty!!! I'm the Cutest! I said so on Saturday! I'm going to win! I'm going to be the winner! *meow meow meow*

Erm, really??? Tis difficult to get the votes, Nishiko!

Xanthe! Monday is my day! Go away! I'll fight you later! *grrr*

Sorry... Erm, to all my dearest Kitizens and Citizens, please find a link to my voting page below, and vote for your Cutest Kitty, Me! *purr*

Nishiko, darling, that's enough!

Mummy! *purrs purrs* I better go...

Happy World Cat Day!

Happy World Cat Day!

Happy World Cat Day!

We've been having great fun today. We've been up all hours of the day, Mummy and Daddy too! Tis photo was taken at 4 in the morning as Mummy was trying to get back to sleep, hehe *purrs*

Oh! I have an update on my photo contest too! Mummy says that we are in 20th place and that we still have quite a way to go and only 2 days left. So now I'm worried that I'm not the cutest Kitten in the contest. But Mummy tells me that I am and that people must be cheating on the votes. Naughty! If you want to vote again here is the link:

You're not as cute as me, but Good Luck, Xanthe!

Awww, Erm... Thank you, Nishiko...

Xanthe's Thursday Update

Purrs to All!

OMC! It feels like a while since I've talked to you all on here, hehe... Well, we've been busy looking after Mummy... She went back to work today and promised that I would have my say on the blog tonight as it was wordless wednesday last night and she was not well on Tuesday. Poor Mummy... So Nishiko and I have had our sisterly disagreements, nothing that we can't handle... Oh and I had to go back to the V-E-T yet again on Tuesday! But it was not as bad as before because I didn't have that nasty thing up my bottom! *meow*

Anyway, Mum managed to enter me and her into a photo competithon on Facebook with the animal rescue site! Ooo I'm so excited but Mummy is more than worried, she tells me that we don't have enough votes to win and above all that there are people on there who are cheating because it is suppose to be a human and furry competithon but some poeple are just showing photos of furries. Oh! The horror of it all! To all my Kitizen furends who are on facebook and would like to vote for Mummy and me, please follow this link...

If you have any problems just message me, Mummy will pass it on *purrs*

Here are some photos of Nishiko and Me looking after Mummy this week. Daddy took the last one of us asleep together. Mummy turned them into black and white pictures, what do you think?

Nishiko's Monday Update

Purrs to All!

Awww, poor Mummy hasn't been well since yesterday so she was unable to post our slideshow! Xanthe and I were a little upset as there are some good photos of us we wanted to show you all, but we know that Mummy needs her rest.

Oh the horror that was Friday! We were taken to the vet! It was worst than last time too. I came out of our carry case first and they looked me over as before and then they held me down and stuck this thing right down my throat! Yuck, I nearly gagged! Then they gave me a prick on the back of the neck. But My Poor Xanthe had it worst than me. She had that horrid thing up her bottom again and I had to watch the vet do it to her, unable to protect her from it because I was locked back in the carry case... My Poor Xanthe was crying for help and I was crying to be let out to scratch that vet to pieces!

We had a much better day on Saturday though. We've been playing in the room with the big bouncy bed! Mummy took photos of us too. Here are some of us playing one of our favorite games...
