A Few of Our Favorite Things

Thanksgiving was WONDERFUL! There were a lot of noisy people in our home that night. We didn't like it and hid under the bed. Later we were lured out by the smell of roasted turkey. We were afraid, but we were more hungry then scared. The humans were nice (just too noisy for us old cats) and we were happy when they went home. Now we have a fridge full of turkey and we meow like crazy every time one of the humans goes into the fridge. The humans also shared some turkey with the homeless black cat who lurks around our house. We don't like him very much, but since it was Thanksgiving we thought it was nice to share.

All of this turkey eating has had us taking cat naps longer then normal. We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and got to eat some good stuff.

Pandora tagged us for this animal meme. Sorry it took us so long to do it Pandora. We were just lazy over the holiday weekend.

Favorite place to sleep?
Opus: On the cat bed in front of the radiator in the bedroom.

Roscoe: On the cat bed in front of the radiator in the hallway.

Favorite music?
Opus: Classical music

Roscoe: Broadway musicals, especially "Cats"!

Favorite toy?
Opus: Feathers on a string and empty boxes

Roscoe: A vet doll that my Grandma gave me when I was kitten. It has cat nip in it. I still have it after 10 years and still love playing with it!

Favorite flavor of Stinky Goodness?
Opus and Roscoe: We love anything that smells like fish (even if it makes our breath stink)! YUM!

Favorite human?
Opus: The female human of course!

Roscoe: Yea, she has been the only constant thing in our lives. We were given the female human for Christmas ten years ago and we still have her! Too bad she doesn't smell like cat nip like my toy!

Favorite game?
Roscoe: We like to play fight.

Opus: Yea, sometimes it sounds so real that the female human comes and breaks it up. She must think that we are really fighting.

Roscoe: Well, you do bite rather hard sometimes.....

Opus: Just pay back my little friend (snicker snicker)!

Favorite window?
Opus: We love the bedroom window!

Roscoe: The sun shines in there all afternoon. Perfect for sun bathing!

Favorite naughty thing to do?
Roscoe: I enjoy jumping on the human's bed at three in the morning and meowing for no good reason.

Opus: I like to sharpen my claws on the furniture. It is strange though, no matter how hard I try I am not able to tear the fabric. I just don't understand.

Female human: Shhhh, the boys don't remember being declawed when they were kittens.

And now we tag Derby, Charlie, Edsels, Boni and Gigolo Kitty!

What Do You See?

At Cat Naps in Italy, we are still trying to work the bugs out of our new template. We have noticed that the pictures we have added are not always downloaded onto the screen. Below is a picture of what our blog SHOULD look like. We were just wondering what YOU see when you open our blog.

This is just too much work. I think we need a nap!


Is this was what you see?

Our New Look

Roscoe and I spent the afternoon working on our blog with our male human. It took a lot of time and effort, but we finally finished. We hope you like the new look of Cat Naps in Italy. Thank you Danilo for all of your help.

We Are Back

Dear Felines and other four legged furball friends,
What a crazy couple of weeks it has been! First I was feeling under the weather. Then one of the humans (not wanting to be out done) went to the hospital. Our routine has been so messed up, we didn't know what to do!

Yesterday the human came home and is in good health. This means Roscoe and I can return to our normal blogging activities. Roscoe is hard at work writing about our adventures in Pisa.

Thank you all for your thoughts, puurayers and kind words. Your friendships mean so much to us.

With much love and appreciation,

Dear Friends

Dear Friends,
We are so sorry to have kept you in the dark. The good news is that Opus's eye cleared up before the trip to the vet. He is doing well and has appreciated all of your kind thoughts and words. The bad news is that we will still be hauled off to the vet for our yearly shots. Some cats just can't win.

One of the humans in the house is sick and in the hospital. This is why we have not been able to write. The computer has not been available. All is well, but until the human returns home life is a bit out of order for us. Do they realize how traumatic it is to mess with a cat's normal routine?

It was not our intention to have kept you all in suspense for such a long period of time. We will write soon about our adventure in Pisa. Until then, keep us and our humans in your thoughts and prayers.

Dear Fellow Felines...

Dear Fellow felines, fans and friends,
We are so sorry to have kept you in suspense for such a long amount of time. I assure you, this was never our intent. The truth of matter is that I have feeling a bit under the weather. I developed some sort of infection in my eye. It has turned a bit pink and is slightly swollen. I had hoped that it would pass, but after several days, it is clear that it will not. Tomorrow our humans will take us to the mean vet for a check up. My poor left eye can no longer go ignored. Unfortunately, we are also due for our yearly shots. This means that both my brother and I will be dragged from the safely of our home.

I hope to be back writing soon. I can not wait to tell you all about our adventures (and we did not get caught this time). In the meantime, I am taking it easy while Roscoe remains faithfully by my side. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, you all know how nasty the vet human can be.


P.S. A hint about our travels: we had NOTHING to do with the broken tower. It was leaning when we arrived!

First, A Nap

We had such a great weekend. The humans went away again. And believe us, when the humans are away the cats will play! We had another exciting adventure. We can not wait to share it with you, but first a nap. We are so tired from all the fun we had. We are off to dream little cat dreams. Then we will tell you all about our weekend! WHAT AN ADVENTURE!
