Smelly cat?


Does anyone know this song that my Mum keeps singing to me? Its apparently called Smelly Cat.


"Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat
It's not your fault"
...

If its not my fault, who's fault is it? I don't buy the food...

Awesome mousing footage!

Holy CATS! I cannot believe that I just found these videos that Mum has never posted. This was the best video ever. One day, back in the fall I was chasing this mouse out on the back patio. It was lots of fun chasing him, but frustrating too, because he ended up getting away. I think Mum was trying to set this to music, but since it just hasn't ever happened, I'm posting it now. I hope you enjoy this totally pawsome footage of me:

Clovers are my friend

We have a lot of big clumpy clover patches in the back yard right now, Mum doesn't understand why the grass doesn't grow, but clovers have no problems. I think I like clovers, they make good hiding places to watch birds.


Just watch, now that I posted about how I like the clovers, she's gonna go out there and pull them all up.

Surprise Gifts are pawsome!

I got THE coolest surprise today. I had kind of forgotten that I entered a contest on Percy's blog back in December and was chosen as the winner.
Today a big Fedex box came to the house today. Mum saw it when she pulled up in the driveway and wondered to herself "what is coming via Fedex?" She picked it up and it had my name on it, not her's. She brought it in for me, just as I was going out back to do my patrols and daily bird watching, so I let her open it for me. When I came back in I was very impressed to see a whole bunch of great gifts.

There is this neato round thing with this crazy ball that I just can't grab, it had some preemo nip that Mum put on the scratchy part in the middle that got me a little loopy.

It also had some yummy food samples from Taste of the Wild, it is my favorite flavor FISH. More specifically trouts and salmons. I think it's quite delish.
What's even better is that they gave me a gift certificate, so I can have Mum go online and buy a big bag of that yummy food!

Thanks again for picking me Percy!!

Da Bird

Not the usual berd I usually talk about, this is Da Bird, my new favorite toy! It's a fake bird that I can chew on and catch, it's pretty much the best toy ever, as many of you can probably agree. I don't get to play with it all the time though, Mum keeps locking it up in the closet when we get done with it. She thinks I'll shred it up and she'll have to pay moneys to get another bird. She might be right...

William ornament 2010


A few very lucky people in the world were honorable enough to receive a limited edition William ornament for Christmas this year. For those of you who did not get one, here is a photo of one of them. Mum says she would have made more, but she did not have enough jar lids. She will begin collecting lids now, for next year's version. I think this would be the coolest thing to have on your tree for years to come.

Meet Orange

My Mum is back home! She wanted me to show you this kitty. She calls him Orange, no idea where she came up with that name... he is a feral kitty that lives outside at the store where she goes to teach at in Riverside, CA. He is a tough guy kitty, he is independent, he gets in fights with other kitties and raccoons. I think he usually wins his battles, but as the WB says, "you win some, you lose some". I feel bad that he has to live outside, but the nice people in the store feed him stinky goodness and dry food everyday. He hangs out there and has places to hide and sleep. He talks to people, but doesn't want to be touched. Mum talks to him when she sees him. He has been there for a really long time, and she says he's looking healthier right now than he has in the past, he's got extra fluff on him. It would be nice if he had a nice house to live in, but maybe he doesn't want a nice house, maybe he likes his freedom, who am I to judge?
There are another couple of kitties who live around there too, so he is not alone. I guess the store people figure that they can just feed them and keep them happy outside, rather than calling it in to the animal control people since they are independent cats and they might not get adopted. I think I have mixed emotions about that.She was taking pictures while he was in the middle of a bath, so that's why he's got his mouth all funny looking, he was licking his lips.

baby sitter's lap

I am with the babysitter for a few days. She has a pretty pawsome lap to nap on, so it's not so bad.

Quality time with the Berd

So, me and the Berd were spending some quality time together on the back of the couch today.

Once again, I was just trying to get to "know" her better, but Mum kept saying "William, No", or "Hey!" to me
Thanks to Mum's defense shields, this Berd has no obvious fear of this cat, this stalking machine of doom, she is not scared of me. What berd would sit and preen in the face of their predator? Guess I need a new tactic.
I'll just stare at you with contempt for now Berd...you win this time...

I'm glad I don't have to work every day.

For four days this week I was tasked with supervising the guys who were replacing our bamboo floor with tiles.  It was exhausting. ...
