In this long hiatus, I managed to get me two babies.
When I first moved into my place in fabulous Arlington TX, I got the first one, Kula Mari from the neighbors in the duplex. She was an orange furry ball with yellow eyes, and sittin’ off to the side, checkin’ everything out. She was stand-offish (& still is!) , and really hissed at me when I first got her home. I kicked her ass and locked her in a closet for like two days. I fed her, but nothing else.
She came up outta that closet brand new; completely changed and co-operating. She couldn’t wait for me to pick her ass up and show her it was ok, and that I still liked her and wasnt gonna kill her today.
She’s real quiet; I really don’t think I’ve actually head her meow louder than ‘a whisper. She just lays around lookin’ cute all day.
She’s the Resident Valley Gurl, everything disgusts her, she hates women, and is usually found on top of the frig surveying her kingdom…
*Kaluha “Kula Mari”*
Kela Mylee is another story. She has had 2 litters (Kula too!), she is the baby of the family. After Kula’s Litter, her parents had another one. No, I didn’t plan on gettin’ a second cat, but they moved and left 3 lil babies in the place (the cretins!). They lil eyes were barely open, and still nursing. And alone.
I took one, and the other neighbor took the other two. I went to Wal-Mart, and bought a lil nursing bottle, and some ‘First Milk’ (yeah they sell it off the shelf…). I fed that baby by the bottle every two hours, and got me a warm wet, soft rag and wiped her down like her momma would. I held her and rocked her; she slept on my chest like a real baby every night till she got her lil legs under her, and started explorin’ the joint. She was ‘vocal’ from the git and soon started ‘talkin; to me all over the house. Still does, especially when I’m not movin fast enuff on the food bowl or cat box detail…
Kela loves everybody, especially men. She’s usually found sleepin in the middle of my bed, or on someone’s lap. Because of the way she got here, I can’t move in this house without Kela. She always somewhere in my area.
This is their page, and all updates on ‘the gurls ‘ will be found right here.
Kela would love this! Talk about livin’ large!
Kela just home from the vet. She hates the whole thing. #notgivinaphuck
This is the attitude of the gurls right now.
WE are discussin’ makin’ another move back to Texas. I told my babies when we came back to Cali that we weren’t movin’ any more, but due to family circumstances (I’m not feelin’ Cali any more!). We outta here.
They will get over it…
I’ve figger it out…
Y’all know I have two what I call menopausal (fixed & fat) female cats.
It just dawned on me my role around this house. I am the head cat-poop-scooper, feed-bowl filler and water bearer, and human scratchin’ post (when the other one is not quite so appealin’)’door-person (they play that dayumm door 50 times a day!).
I am also required to administer under the chin rubs and over-night cuddlin’ when requested by either party, and break up jealous bytch fights. These usually happen when one wants to be in Mommy’s lap and the other beat her to it.
I think Ive truly spoiled these broads. I cant move around my house without Kela (this includes trips to the ladies’ room) and Kula thinks she’s a dog and will follow me across the street to the corner store, stand outside and wait for her Mommy to come out. She does the rollover thing. And every time I cook bacon, Kula comes runnin’ from wherever she’s at inside or out for her share. I finally just started cookin’ her a slice or two so she can stay the h3ll off mine and I can eat my breakfast in peace…
My babies get a can of tuna apiece every other day and I have been known to buy them canned white crab meat and grilled chicken strips by the bag (if I don’t cook and strip them myself). And I wonder why I have to kick they ass to make them eat kibble…
I even enable their drug use. I buy catnip toys or raw catnip and dose they asses 2-3 times a day. I have to admit I get a kick out of seein’ them trip off of it…
My sister calls them “the rich bytches”…
She sounds jealous, but she might have a point.
Pre-Xmas Portraits? dec.22.2009
;”>Gettin Ready for Xmas!
They are my babies. What can I say?
Thanksgiving Day 2009
Last year, and this year, ::the gurls:: will have their Thanksgiving Day dinner too . I usually cut up the meat, (chicken-dont do turkey; not crazy about white meat) and raw greens, and a lil brown rice. And they get to drink half-n-half.
I guess they spoiled…
When The Babies Bring U Gifts… (Nov 18 2009)
(**sigh**) I know they love me, but dayumm.
Kela brought me another ‘gift’ just now. I been lookin’ out the door for her for a min . (its 40 degrees outside; I guess I just cant accept that they have fur and its no big deal!) When she came in she was ‘talkative’ as usual. But when I turned on the lights, there, smack in the middle of the living room floor is a live mouse!
I ran str8 out the door and got called a neighbor, who happended to be sittin in his car, talkin to his girl (she NEVER goes in his apt! whats up with that?) and got him to remove the evidence. She sittin there like she had a solution for the national debt… I kno I saw a smile.
I guess she sensed I did’nt care for the 1/2 a bluejay she bought me last weekend…
I have decided, since we live in a apt with more concrete than grass, I will grow some…
I’ve tried this one time before, and promptly killed the dayumm grass. This time we got blades!!!
Kela M. is in flickin’ heat!
Kela is in heat!
Lawd I’m in a bad position. If I let her out, she’s comin back with babies. If I don’t she will drive me insane!
I cant do the kitty thing again; they both have crept up on me with 2 litters each (and within days of each other!) You have no idea what its like to have 10 cats (Kula had 3 and Kela had 5 the first time) in a loft apartment. I’ve got 7 this time (Kula = 3 and Kela = 2) and its truly an unreal experience.
They have been literally held prisoner, since they gave birth this last time (Kela was first on Jul 14th, and Kula came in 6 days later on Jul 20th.) They had to go out and get preggers immediately afer they dropped the first loads, to have another litter so soon. Until Im able to get them fixed, theird world will consists of what they see out that window…
Anybody know of a lost-cost or free spay and neuter service or program I can go to near Arlington TX, let me kno.
The Gurls went and got their shots today.
While this may not mean much to anyone else, its a HELLUVA big deal to me! I was goin to the Red Box at CVS, and they had the low cost spay and neuter booth up in the parking lot! I was ecstatic!
It was #70.00 for both of my babies, and for the full series. I thought it was my birthday(which is actually the 27th).
This means they are one step away from sterilization,. I’ve been working with Friends of Animals ; they have a low cost program where you pay $65.00 for a certificate you can take to the vet, and get your pet fixed. Now that’s for cats, I’m not sure what they cost is for dogs..
**sigh**…a much needed rest for my nerves. No more kittens under foot. Only two litter boxes. I can see it all now…
Kela’s still callin for her big-head ass boyfriends, tho…
My hope and dream is to wedge Kela into the vet tomorrow (9-8), and get her fixed.
I will rest better; the gurls want to go outside and since I am ‘noid that they will come back preggers, I’m not lettin em out. They wildin’ and I cant take it any more -little do they know…
One down, one to go.
**Made It!** Kela is now sterile and I am drunk! Celebrating the fact that I can now let my gurlz out, without worrying about another litter of kittens!! God is soooo good! “Teekela” is doin ok; she’s layin around and dont want to eat. Thats to be expected; she just had a full hysterectomy…po’ baby…I be glad when she’s herself again…
Update: Everybody is fully re-cuperated from their surgery, and back on the block! Both ::the gurls:: made it thru ok- I was givin the pain meds so they would calm down mostly-and doin fine. I am curious tho as to why they put dissolvable stitches in Kula, and I hadda take Kela back to have hers removed…
*but no bother. its all good…
::the gurls:: got they scrap on!
I know it’s been a brief sorta hiatus, but I haven’t been able to tell u that I finally got ::the gurls:: fixed; no more kittens jumpin all over lil my spot. Cat person that I am, I’m not one to want 10-12 cats around. These hoes have had two litters apiece since March- 6-10 days apart!-so u kno I have had enuff!
N E wayz, ::the gurls:: are fixed now, so I guess they just not feelin’ a tom cat, no how, no way. They layin on the patio, sunning’ like cats do, and along comes this big-head (they all have big heads to me!) striped tom loopin by like it was nuthin’ tryin to sniff them out. Shyt, Kula was the first to get froggish! Next thing you know, her ears are laid down, pupils full, and that snatch of hair on her back was standin’ straight up! She was growlin’ real low, like, “Ok mofo, don’t come get it, don’t catch this fade fool!” Lookin’ just crazy. I was scared to go near her.
Kela came from the blind somewhere; she took the fade to him. Out the corner of my eye, I see this flash of grey, and she was on his head! She had him good too; seemed like her claws were posted where his eyebrows shoulda been. Kula is now in the fray again, swappin’ him upside the part of his head that Kela didn’t have hold to, and he took off under the neighbors SUV, knockin Kela off his back on the way.
Funny as hell!
I called ::thegurls:: back where they lived- it was hard; I had to threaten Kela, with her ghetto ass. She wanted to stay in the middle of the parkin’ lot, talkin’ shyt and sellin’ wolf tickets.
But I liked the fact that they was goin’ down for each other like; no matter how much they tiff in here, they got each other’s back
