My cat Snape, that is. Check it out, her picture is on Cats Where They Do Not Belong

She does not have a job to carry things to. She cannot drink out of that water bottle. Get out of there cat, you're being ridiculous.

I put some salted tortilla chips in a bowl last night for a snack and I didn't finish them so I left the them on the table. I ate some more from the same bowl a few minutes ago.

Then about 30 seconds ago, I saw my cat jump up and lick a bunch of the chips then walk away.

For all I know, she also did that at some point last night. And I just ate chips covered in cat spit.

The reason for posting this was mainly so my mum could see it, since her old, crappy browser doesn't like YouTube.

1. My friend's cat scratched her face: last night there was a thunderstorm and the cat was scared so naturally she jumped up on the bed and scrambled under the covers. There might have been a human's face in the way or something, I don't know, it's all kind of a blur - getting under the covers, that's the important thing.

2. Snape bit her own tail. And went "ow! Moooom, somebody bit my tail!" Poor, silly cat.

I would like to go to bed but I cannot because my cat is sitting on my leg and scrunging her claws on my knee and purring.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I pretty much already know what her meows mean. They mean: "letmeoutletmeoutletmeout! Open the dooooooor, I want to go oooooooout! Sweet, door's open! Ooh, it's cold. Make it not cold! Hey, don't close the door, I might want to go out later!"

1. I'm sitting at the computer and Snape comes over wanting attention.
2. I pat my lap and she jumps up.
3. I pet her a little.
4. Out of nowhere, she whips around and bites my hand.
5. I take my hand away and she wanders off.
6. ABOUT 30 SECONDS LATER, she comes back all sad kitty face, "meow, pet me!" like I don't remember what JUST HAPPENED 30 SECONDS AGO.

I just realized I've been sitting here petting my cat while looking at pictures of cats on the internet. At least I'm not wearing a shirt with a picture of a cat on it at the same time. That would be a bit much.

And then Snape got her claw stuck in my chair and I had to help her, and obviously if she gets her claw stuck in something and I unstick it, it must be my fault it got stuck in the first place and she has to bite me to even the score. Yep.

...actually, she also bites me when I'm brushing her and she's had enough. Could a bite be cat-language for "that was very nice, thank you!"? That would explain a lot.

Hmm, I wonder where Snape is today...

She's on!

ETA: D'oh! Fixed the typo.

After the contaminated pet food scare, I've decided to start feeding Snape better food. I went to Whole Foods today and got her two raw, shelled prawns. I put one in the freezer and put another on a plate for her. She wasn't interested. But I had a bright idea: she likes butter so I'll give her a nice, buttered shrimpy and she'll eat it right up! I spread a little blob of butter on the prawn and stepped back to watch. She poked at it and managed to swipe up most of the blob on her paw, then she licked her paw and walked away.

Plan B: I'll chop up the other prawn and mix it with her food. I don't put it past her to pull out all the prawn chunks and eat the food but it'll be a start.

I used to feed Snape Nutro Natural Choice food in pouches and that was one of the brands contaminated with rat poison so that's out.

I know a natural, raw diet would be ideal but given that I can barely manage to feed myself either, it's going to have to be ready-made food, at least for now. I got Newman's Own canned food and she's eating that but she's not enthusiastic about it. On the other hand, she doesn't eat a ton anyway. She'd always lick the gravy off the Nutro chunks but I'd end up throwing away a lot of the chunks themselves.

My question is: have any of you heard anything bad about Newman's Own? I looked for reviews online and I mostly just found sites selling the food. The ingredients seem good, anyway.

See, I told you I'd stop posting about my store.

Here she is on the treadmill I bought off craigslist. I have since erected a barrier around it so she can't try to get on it while I'm using it. But I move the barrier partly when I'm not using it and she likes to sit on it.

I got a digital camera, so it was only a matter of time before this happened.

Snapey in a bag:

(yeah, I know, I need to vacuum)

Last night, I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth and Snape was there. I had a paper grocery bag containing a few boxes of pads. It was sitting on top of a cardboard moving box, because I never unpacked a lot of my stuff. Snape was very interested in the bag. She kept standing up to peer into it. Then she managed to pull it onto the floor. Then she pushed out all the boxes and sat in the bag. She likes bags.

Thanks to [ profile] careena, I will sit here clicking the "Show me another cat in a sink!" button until I starve to death. Show me the cats!

More about cats: at about 3:30am this morning, I had to pee so I got up and went to the bathroom. Whenever I come out of my bedroom in the morning and go into the bathroom, Snape comes in and tries to persuade me not to go to work that day. Also she has to watch the toilet flush. And maybe go in the cupboard. Anyway. The problem with getting up at 3:30am is that Snape apparently can't tell time and expects me to come downstairs with her after I'm done in the bathroom. So I got a blanket and went to lie on the couch and keep her company (Snape pees on my bed and laundry if she gets into my bedroom so it's off limits).

So she came and sat on me. That was nice. She's pretty active during the day and won't usually sit on me for very long. We both took a nap on the couch.


She's much bigger than in the icon now. I need to take more pictures.

I don't think you've heard enough cute stories about my cat lately.

The other night, I made a fried egg sandwich for dinner. As I came into the living room, I checked Snape's food bowls and she still had crunchy food and squishy food (chunks in sauce) left over from breakfast so I assumed she was OK and sat down on the couch to eat my sandwich. Then she went over to her food bowls and meowed. So I put my sandwich down on the couch and went to get her some fresh squishy food. And she promptly jumped up on the couch to lick my sandwich. She likes butter.

Tricksy cats.

I took a half pill of ambien and then some over-the-counter allergy medicine. I somethimes stare at the monitor without moving my head for too long and I get a little disoriented but this is more than usual. Dang. I'm usually careful about that sort of thing. It's supposed to be non-drowsy allergy medicine anyway. I'm just spacing out a little. Wooo. My head's all... heavy. ANd I can sort of wave it around slowly and it's weird. Don't worry, I'm going to sleep soon. At least I'll probably sleep through Snape's midnight yowlings this time. I guess she's in heat. She's about 6 months old and I was going to have her spayed but she has a little problem with her bladder and they'd like to see that cleared up before they do the surgery. So walkin around yowling it shall be for the next couple of weeks.

Assuming I haven't poisoned myself, see you tomorrow for the update on my action-packed, fun-filled weekendstravaganza! Here's a little preview: they were ringing up the sandwich and the guy handed me the bag and I said "could I have a pickle, please?" and he gave me not one but TWO pickle slices...
