Just A Cat In A Box On A Friday

Posted by terrepruitt on June 23, 2017

There are some people (I happen to be one of them) who think there is no such thing as too many cat pictures. If you are one of those people then perhaps you might also think there is no such thing as too many pictures of cats in boxes. What is it with cats and boxes? So funny. And many of you know that the smaller the box . . . I mean, the more that it is less likely the cat will fit, the more they like the box. Well, our little cat has no problem fitting in boxes because, well, she is little. But it is odd to me that she just recently started sitting in this box. It has been on the bedroom floor for a long time. We (the cats and I) play with the shredded paper. But lately I will find Nessa in the box. Silly cat.

Cat in a box for the Friday Photo.

Today I Was Buzzzy

Posted by terrepruitt on June 5, 2017

Oh, I know it is not Friday and I am just going to pop a picture up at the last minute. But you would not believe the day I had. Wow! Basically I spent it dealing with my dad’s estate.  I did work on my website to adjust the SJCITY Fit stuff, that was the extent of work on my work today. I spend an hour (at least) trying to get a HUGE hornet out of the house. Oh, perhaps that can be my post. It actually was a funny story. I was upstairs working and I kept hearing some rough-housing downstairs. I would hear what I thought was a cat running up their tower. Then I would hear some scampering. Then quiet. Then noise. And this went on for a bit. Finally, I thought, I had better check because if they have been playing this long it is probably getting to be at the rough point. Just like with kids it goes ok for a bit then after a while it seems like someone gets a bit rough and someone ends up getting hurt. Before I went downstairs I thought I would check to see if one of the cats was up here (she has found a new spot). Sure enough, Teagan was on the throne.  That meant Nessa was downstairs playing all by herself.

When I got downstairs, she ran, looking guilty, and one of our speakers was crooked. So I thought she had went up the tower, onto the speaker, across the curtain rod, to the entertainment center. So I straightened the speaker and said, “No, Kitty.” And she looked guilty. So I went into the kitchen. Then I heard her rough-housing again. So I came out to see what she was doing, and she gave me that I’m-not-doing-anything look. Parents in all forms have to be familiar with that look. So I went back into the kitchen. Then she was at it again, so I came out again. This went on at least four times. Then as I was walking out I heard the tiniest “Bzzzz.”

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitI pull back the curtain and I see this HUGE WASP. It was HUGE. I have never seen one so big. Yeah, in the house. By then Teagan had come downstairs and realized that there was prey to be had and wanted to get in on it. So I scooped them both up and locked them in my office. And I spent the next hour trying to get the thing out of the house.

I was afraid to disturb it so much that it flew INTO the house. It was pretty much staying in the window area. So I opened the sliding glass door which is right next to the window it was in (which doesn’t open because it is a picture window). Then I got a handful of clothespins and I clipped the curtains together. There is a set of two over the picture window and then the one that is over the slider. I was hoping that I could fan the wasp with the curtain and encourage it to go outside. Well, it wasn’t budging with the curtain fanning.

I got my blow dryer thinking I could blow it towards the open door. No. It just hung on tighter. All the while I am going outside to look at it from the outside because I don’t want to open the curtains enough to look and possibly let it out into the room. Then I got the cobweb duster. It extends really far and I thought I could use that. Again, I didn’t want to open the curtain too much but I had to get the duster in there. So I just poked in there. And the wasp moved but it slipped out of the place where it is too high and I hadn’t clipped the curtains (of course) and landed on the wall. But it was the wall almost right above the open door. So I swooshed it out. Well, I had hoped I got. I looked and couldn’t find it.

But I didn’t take down my curtain contraption or let the cats out of the office until my hubby got home to check for me. Geez. So I had sat down to try to think of something to write and was on my computer when I heard all the commotion. Nessa wasn’t playing with her sister or playing by herself, she was attacking a wasp.

Here is Teagan and Nessa on the tower. This was in January 2017 . . . I was just going to post this but then realized I could share a portion of my crazy day.

What do you do when a bee/wasp gets in your house?

Cat Got Her Tail

Posted by terrepruitt on May 15, 2017

Because it is Monday, and sometimes we all just need to start the work week (for those of us that start our work week on Monday) off with something silly.  This is silly and it is quick.  It will only take you about 30 seconds to watch.  There is nothing exciting about it.  There isn’t even sound!  No “wait-for-it” moment.  It is just our cat being silly.  It makes me laugh when she gets her tail.  I don’t understand the situation when animals try to get their tail.  Do they not control it?  Do they not know it is connected to their body?  What is up with that?  That is part of what makes it so funny to me.  And then, once they get it, what do they do with it?  Bite it, then realize, “Oh!  That’s my tail!”?  I don’t get it.

Sometimes I will not even understand what she is doing.  I will see her staring at something, but I don’t see what because it doesn’t cross my mind that she is staring at her tail.  What, is she waiting for it to move?  Does it move by itself?  I think that is what happened here – I didn’t realize she was staring at her tail until she grabbed at it.  So THEN I picked up my camera and only caught 28 seconds of the vicious attack.  Ok, not vicious, I am trying to add excitement and drama to a silly little clip.

This is Nessa and she often gets her tail.

Thank you for watching!

Cool AND Safe Cats

Posted by terrepruitt on May 8, 2017

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitWow!  I thought I had written about this a long time ago.  A long time ago as in almost two years ago when we got the cats.  You may or may not know that we adopted two cats back in July of 2015.  After bringing them home I discovered they had ringworm.  So, going off of what the internet said on how to handle it – aside from just lighting the house on fire – I put a strict protocol in place for these new cats.  They were restricted to a room until they had the course of medication and their cultures came back clear.  It was 30 days.  I vacuumed and wiped the room down twice a week.  It was a long 30 days.  The poor kitties new to us and their new home were locked in a room.  And it was HOT.  It was super hot that summer.  Since it was so hot I wanted to leave the windows open at night for them.  But my husband was afraid to.  It would be really easy for an excited cat to jump through the screen at the animal in the yard.  So I bought temporary screens.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4164/34500992546_91b36584e3_o.jpgI want to remind people that in July of 2015 California was still in the drought and things were very dry.  Our area was very hot.  When there is not enough water things get out of balance.  So, the earth doesn’t have enough water to quench the thirst of the vegetation.  The vegetation doesn’t grow so the insects and animals don’t get the proper nutrition.  Things get out of whack.  When the body isn’t in balance the things that are encountered every day sometimes get the best of a body.  I am saying all of this – not that it is EXACTLY why, but – because that year there was a huge outbreak of ringworm in the shelters.  A week after we got our cats I discovered they had ringworm.  Shortly after I discovered that and let the place know where we got them, an article came out in the paper saying it was the worse they had seen in a long time.  Kittens and cats were being brought in with ringworm in record number.  This was AFTER I told my vet I thought my cats had ringworm and he scoffed at me.  He said in all his years as a vet he had only seen one or two cases.  Well, that year there were many cases.  The shelters were having to treat all the kitties.  I say all this so that people know it was just an unusual thing.  Most of the time cats and people don’t get it even when they are exposed because we are healthy enough to fight it off.  But I think the drought had a lot to do with it.  It was unusual for there to be such an outbreak of ringworm.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitAnyway . . . I read a lot of reviews on the internet regarding temporary screens.  A lot of the reviewers were upset because they were using screens to try to keep dogs and large cats from getting outside.  Well, I guess I am familiar with screens enough to know that if a large animal wants out bad enough it is doing to get through a screen.  And I wasn’t planning on using these permanently.  Also, I wasn’t planning on using them as the only screen.  They were really just to reinforce the screens that were already there.  I hate the heat.  But I am thankful that it was so hot that summer because I think that it helped keep the cats’ energy low.  So it was really unlikely that they would jump though the window screen so having this as an extra reinforcement was perfect.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitI think they really appreciated being able to have the windows open.  Even though the screen over screen allowed less air in than just the one screen would have it was still more than a shut window.  Both my hubby and I felt better having that extra reinforcement.  I thought they worked great.  They weren’t a perfect fit, but they were perfect enough considering they were a standard order.

The one large screen fit in the large window great.  It was able to be held in both ways . . . as in it didn’t fall into the room and the way it fit in the window frame it would not be able to be pushed out.  The screen for the smaller window would only fit when we took the window out.  It was something we had to do every night and every morning, but I think it was way worth it to allow the cats to have some air AND to give us peace of mind.

I know there are others out there that might want to have that extra reinforcement for their windows so I would suggest getting a temporary screen.  The ones I got from Quality Screen Co, LLC (LP) were adjustable so they worked great.  I went looking for my post regarding these screens when I saw this post – Stay safe and secure open windows! – on Katzenworld.  That is when I discovered I had not written a post.  I thought this would be a good time.  The weather is getting warm and open windows provide relief from the heat.  A temporary adjustable screen could help reinforce the screen already in your window and save you and your pet from an unfortunate situation.

Stay cool and stay safe!

Catchelors And Catchelorettes

Posted by terrepruitt on March 13, 2017

This is kinda old, but also kinda cute.  Purrfect Match: Love in the Cat Cafe.  I tweeted it when I first saw it, but I am doing some computer clean up and I ran across it again.  Have you seen it?  It is a little video series about people adopting a cat from a cat cafe.  They are kind of likening the series to one of those reality dating shows.  The videos are about two minutes long so it is a quick thing to watch.  It is cute.

The first episode is called “The Cat-Chelors” and it is 1 minute and 59 seconds long.  Ha,  ha, ha.  Already they are being clever.  The “cat-chelors” are Love, Tommy, Stevie, and Misty.  At the time of the filming they were residence at Meow Parlour in New York.  The video documents Erica Williams and John Stevens’ quest for a cat.

 

Purrfect Match: Love in the Cat Cafe, Part 2 is 2 minutes and 35 seconds and it is called “One-on-One Dates.”  In this one you can see Erica, the self-proclaimed cat whisperer, get closer to her pick.  We got to see a little bit of Love.  Then Tommy was doing his cute thing.  He seemed very interested.

 

In Purrfect Match: Love in the Cat Cafe, Part 3 ”Playing the Field,” which is 1 minute and 43 second long, we get to see a bit of Stevie.  He is white and part Siamese.  Not sure, but he looks like he might be a trouble-maker.  We also see the fun couple meet Misty.  But we don’t see much from Misty.  She seems really tired.  But according to Erica, she is like touching a cloud.

 

Purrfect Match: Love in the Cat Cafe, Part 4 “Kitty + Us” we get to see which cat makes the two newly engaged couple a threesome.  Erica likes girls cats and that Misty was super cute and soft.  But they had a good visit with Tommy.  You’ll have to watch a see.  You’ll find out before the 2 minute video is done.

 

I think this is a super cute way to highlight cat cafes.  So many people have not heard about them and this is a fun way to get the word out.  I think they could do it in two five minute videos or even one seven to ten minute video.  I would prefer that over the four separate videos.  But it is still cute.  And I did watch them all.

What do you think?  Don’t you think this is really cute?

Cats, Crazy, Valentine’s Day

Posted by terrepruitt on February 13, 2017

You may have read somewhere on my blog that we have two cats.  You may have read somewhere on my blog that we had ONE cat.  It took me over a year to even think about getting another cat.  Notice I said CAT.  So when I finally got to a point where I was entertaining the idea of getting A CAT . . . it was really hard to be faced with the idea of getting TWO.  The one I wanted came as a pair.  Now, I still would opt for ONE cat as opposed to two, but that will not happen because there is no way we would get rid of either one.  Although, I am still learning about two cats.  It is not easy having two cats.  I had always heard that cats did not like change, that cats liked to have the same thing to eat – all the time.  But lately I hear they get bored and want something else.  So when our “big” cat doesn’t bother me for dinner, then when I put it out she barely touches it, I think she is bored.

So then I spend hours on the internet trying to find a food.  Because I am picky.  I prefer grain free and limited ingredients and you may have read somewhere on my blog that our last cat did not like fish.  So, I have never researched any cat food with fish until these two.  They like fish.  Once I find something I will feed them on the internet, I used to buy it, but now I have to go find it at a store because I would rather buy a CAN as opposed to a case (and only cases can be purchased on the internet).  Because apparently only ONE kind of food with fish will do, so I don’t want to buy a whole case and be stuck with it. The little one will eat different kinds, but it seems the “big” one likes ONE kind.  Even though she may seem bored she won’t eat anything else.  Sigh.

Today I was trying to put together a Valentine’s Day routine for my Nia class tomorrow after spending a bit of time looking for new food for the cats.  Then I give it to them and the picky one does not like it and spends the next two hours telling me about her dissatisfaction.  Poor girl.  It is sad because if it were the little one, I probably would have opened another cat food.  But since it was the one who could stand to lose a pound, I just look at her and say, “You have dry food if you don’t want to eat your wet food.  Sorry, Girl.”  Man, why did I bother?  Didn’t get as far as I’d have like on the routine and I felt as if I wasted my time.

Cats are crazy.  But really, it is probably humans that are crazy to try to live with such amazing creatures.  🙂  So will you tell me about feeding two cats?  What do you feed your cats?  And how do you get one to slim down but not the other?  What are your feeding practices?  Do your cats tell you when it is time to feed them?  I know this is a lot of questions, but, I want to know these things.

Looking Down From The Throne

Posted by terrepruitt on January 13, 2017

So here we are rounding into the middle of January 2017 already.

We had a cat before the two we currently have.  This was her “throne”.  My husband and I call it that to distinguish between the tower, the little scratching post, and this scratching post.  This scratching post has a spot where they can sit.  Nessa and Teagan LOVE it.  They have scratched the carpet off of the post.  I need to re-carpet it.

Here is Nessa hanging out on the throne looking down on her subject.

First Cat Appearance In My Friday Photos

Posted by terrepruitt on November 4, 2016

I did say that there would be a lot of cat pictures.  I take HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS.  I am trying not to make my Friday Photo just a succession of cat photos.  I am trying to space them out.  It is difficult.  This one is from over a year ago.  They have actually grown a bit since then.  But they still lie around together.

Teagan and Nessa in the window seat.

Treat Or Complete

Posted by terrepruitt on October 31, 2016

When we had Spot, I spent a lot of time researching food.  I have a friend who did the same thing.  We were interested in what we were feeding our cats.  We both believed that wet food was really good because of the moisture content.  Cats don’t typically drink a lot of water so it is helpful when they can get moisture from their food.  So a while back I looked into a lot of different foods trying to find a wet food that I could feed Spot.  Spot did not like fish.  So I never looked into any food with fish it.  I would sometimes buy a can of cat food that was fish, but she wouldn’t eat it.  I stuck to the other meats available for cats.  Our two new cats (we’ve had them almost a year and a half, but I still think of it as being new) LOVE fish.  Well, I have been feeding them tuna and they love that.  It seems they don’t like sardines.   Teagan stuck her nose in the dish and then walked away.  She’s the “healthy” eater.  Nessa ate a little, but, my conclusion is . . . they don’t like sardines.

Now, this post is not about what food is “good” and what food is “bad” because to me that is really just opinion.  We all have different situations so what brand or type of food is better or worse all depends.  But I do hope there are a couple of things we all agree on.  One is that cats are “obligate carnivores”.  Meaning they biologically have to eat meat.  Their bodies require meat.  And another is, they need complete nutrition.  Now if they are out in the “wild”, whether that be the backyard or the jungle and they are eating WHOLE animals, then they are more than likely getting what they need.  But when we feed them, we need to make sure we are providing what they need.

Because food changes often, researching and looking into food is almost a constant thing for me and because these girls like fish, I am looking into and researching cat food again.  I spend a huge amount of time researching cat food.  Pet food is just like people food in that nutrition is very convoluted.  Anyway, what I am finding lately is there is a lot – I mean a TON – of supplemental food out there.  Not just what I think of as treats, but food that, for a second made me happy, but then I realized it is not good enough.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitWhen I saw some of this food that just had a few ingredients I was excited, but as I said, for a second.  Then I thought, “Wait.  Where is the Taurine?  Where are all the other vitamins and minerals that the cats need?  The ones that are found in bones and ALL of the organs of prey?  Awww, man, this isn’t complete food.”  And then I read the rest of the label and, sure enough, it is just supplemental food.

I am really flabbergasted by all of the supplemental and complimentary products out there.  I don’t remember seeing any of these when I was looking years ago for food for Spot.  But now, almost every product I pick up says it is supplemental and complimentary.  And I have always been looking at foods with limited ingredients, so that is where it is tricky.  It sounds great to look at a label and see “tuna and water”.  Sounds like that is what we SHOULD be feeding our cats, but it is not . . . they need other things too.

So I’m just putting a reminder out there to read the labels of the food being purchased.  I am not saying read the ingredients and try to determine if the product contains what your cat needs.  I am just sayin’ make sure the food being fed provides a COMPLETE diet.  Often times, the list of ingredients looks really “nasty” and full of chemicals, but depending on the food you buy, most of it is necessary.  Because most of the food sold in stores is not a complete animal, there needs to be vitamins and minerals and things added to the food.  It has to be added for the cats’ health.

If the label states it is only for supplemental or complimentary feeding, then additional food, food that is COMPLETE needs to be supplied.  The food is labeled one way or the other so one doesn’t even have to read all the ingredients and try to figure it out.  Just look for information stating it is a complete food.

Cats are trickier than dogs, I think.  Cats have that whole obligate carnivore thing going on.  Plus sometimes the cats themselves might appear picky in what they eat.  There is so much out there, I am sure you can find something that makes you both happy. They will also be healthy when they get a diet that is COMPLETE and has all that they need to be that way!

What does your cat like to eat?  What is her favorite treat?

Quick Re-Visit Of Somethings

Posted by terrepruitt on August 31, 2016

I have some follow up information on some of the posts I have posted:

I made another batch of Sweet and Savory Mixed Nuts, actually I made two.  I made one like before actually sweet and savory, and I made a sweet and spicy.  I didn’t measure the cayenne pepper, I just sprinkled a lot more in the mixture.  I also found a packet of crushed hot red pepper flakes in the refrigerator, ya know the kind you get when you order pizza to be delivered?  I used a package of those.  So I don’t know how much that is.  But last I heard it was a good amount.  When I first told John he said, “Is that all?”  And I reminded him I am not really trying to make them HOT, just give them a little warmth.  But then he ate them and said it was a perfect amount.  But ya know, sometimes with things like this it seems like the spices can be all in one spot.  But hopefully the batch he took to work this morning for a snack was just as good.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, PiYo, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitOur cats, formerly known as Smokey and Esmeralda, have adjusted to their new names.  They are now Teagan and Nessa.  My hubby and I are convinced that Teagan actually likes her name as about the same time we decided to change it she became a little bit more affectionate.  I think that Nessa likes her new name too, now, but she was quick to warm up to it.  Who knows if cats actually care, but it SEEMS like they do.

When I taught yoga at The Dancing Cat earlier this month, I forgot to mention that they have adopted out eight one cats!  That is awesome.  I am not sure if that number has gone up, but I am hoping for them to hit at least 100 when they close in November.  Again, them closing in November is the last I heard, but perhaps that has changed.

Awhile back I posted about this sugar that I had purchased because it was the only kind in the store.  I had posted about it because I thought that maybe since it was less processed it actually “lasted” longer in the hummingbird feeders.  By “lasted” longer I meant it didn’t get grungy as fast.  Well, I have to take that back as I think it didn’t get grungy because the birds were eating it so fast.  We have had a very active hummingbird community this year.  It is really cool.  Over the many years that we have lived here we have probably had about 10 hummingbirds at a time come into the yard to feed.  But there is usually one very possessive bird that thinks he rules the yard and he spends most of his time chasing all the other birds off.  This year they all seem to chase each other around, but no one bird stands out as the boss.  And we have had more birds than ever.  It is really cool.  I filled five of our six feeders on Friday, today is Wednesday and I filled three again today.  I filled one yesterday.  So in about five days I had to refill our feeders.

Speaking of hummingbird feeders, I still maintain that our old hummingbird feeder, the one that is really difficult to clean, is still the favorite amongst the birds.  They will always empty that one first.  It always has the most birds around it.  I really think they can get to the nectar better because of the way it is designed.  I can’t get in and clean it better because the way it is designed, but I think they like it best.  The birds do eat off the other ones, but they don’t get emptied as fast as the old one.  The new ones, though, as so awesome to clean.  It literally takes less than five minutes each to soap ’em up, scrub ’em down, and rinse them out.  I love it.

We are planning on taking down at least three of the feeders this winter.  I will leave up the two large easy to clean ones and the small one that is super easy to clean.  The hummingbirds LOVE that one.  We take down the oriole feeder, the hard to clean feeder, and the hummingbird bar.  Any birds that are still around will still have enough to eat.  If as many birds that are around now, stay around, I will keep up all the feeders, but the numbers seem to dwindle in October.  We will see.

 

Well, that is all for the updates for now.  I have thought to do a post on some of these things, but then realized none of them really warrant an entire post on its own, so I am lumping it all together!
