Hiding from the Ham

That Hammy! Lately he is trying to do EVERYTHING that I do. He's been lying on my spot on the tower. He's been trying to attack the toys the same way I do. He's such a copy-ham!

One thing he's not ever going to be better at is being a secret-hidden-cat! I have that nailed.

This is my very favourite spot!

I can spy on that Ham and make sure he's not copying me!

So far, it is very quiet. That's never a good sign...

I might need to go ultra-covert if I'm going to catch him!

We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone on Facebook for leaving us lovely posts :) We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends :)  I know we're not so great at blogging regularly, but now that it's heading into winter we'll make Rumblemum post more often (or she won't get cuddles! She needs LOTS of extra cuddles in winter to stay warm!)

Work all night/sleep all day

I have a new job - it's an exciting and dynamic night job!

It is my job to bring at least TWO toys from the living room into the bedroom, and notify the Rumbleparents that I have done so by singing a mighty and majestic song.

"Meroww merow merowwwwwww"
(this gift I bring to you)
"Mew maow MOWWWW"
(a sacred gift from pussycat)
"Meoww Meeeww MEW"
(shower me with praise and LOVE)
"Maow merow meroooo"
(and be grateful it is not a rat!)

After my song, Rumbledad must get up and give me scritchies and praise for being ever so clever.

Typically I shower them with my gifts at about 2am. It's lucky that I have the day to recover so that I may again sing my mighty tune.

If I don't get enough sleep, I'll be out of tune
for my next performance!

Sunday Hammy

Hello everyone!! This is HAMMY! I thought you might want to see my 'please can I have some ham' eyes!

Maybe just a small package of ham?
Now that the weather is getting cooler, I've been snuggling under the covers again. Sometimes Rumbles 'doesn't know I'm there' and he stomps on me... but that's OK. I still love him.

Doctor Rumblepurr - available for house-calls!

Rumblemum has managed to come down with a cold, she's feeling very miserable and sorry for herself.

I decided to put myself in a convenient place so that she would feel better. Now every time she needs a tissue, she'll have ME close at hand! I'm also keeping the tissues warm, so really I deserve twice as many treats for being such a good boy.

You know they say "starve a fever, feed a cold TUNA", right Rumblemum?
And speaking of tuna being a cure for a cold, maybe I need to be vaccinated
with some tunas... just in case...

I don't even know why you buy tissues with cute animals. You have ME.

Nurse Hammy CLAIMS that he is also being helpful, but really all he wants is cuddles. They're not the medicinal cuddles like I give.

I know what you're going to say...

I'm going to post this photo, then I'm going to hear a lot of 'Oh that Ham! He is SOOOO cute!' and 'Oh look at those TOE-HAWKS!'

Let me tell you, life with the Ham is NOT all cute and toe-hawk filled! Why just the other day he swooped in and nomed MY chick-hen! Can you believe that?

Yeah that's right, you lie flat. Flat and full of MY chick-hen!

A long while back I promised to post a photo of Rumbledad's Lego R2D2 - a Rumblepurr always keeps his word!

Beep boop bop beep (translation: bring me tuna)

The Ham and I

Sometimes me and the Ham like to hang out together.

La la la. Just minding my business. Washin' my paw
Hmmm, it appears that Hammy doesn't mind me standing
majestically over him
What's that you say? I should give him a POKE? Well... ok...
I mean, you guys do come and leave lovely comments. It's the
least I can do...
"Why NO Hammy. I have NO idea who
just poked you. See how innocent I look?"
My innocent eyes have gotten me out of many the misadventure! heh heh heh...

I'm BACK and I'm CUTE!

Hello my friends! We've been away for a lonnnnng time... Rumblegrandma was over visiting us, and we were soooo busy being spoiled that we hardly had any time to be online!

We're sad she's gone, me and Hammy were very pampered while she was here. I think the Rumbleparents will have to up their game!

Even though it is summer and VERY warm here, I still love to be tucked in under my favourite blankie. I make Rumblemum keep the fan on me so I don't get too warm.

I'm dreaming of BOOOOTIFUL ladycats!

I bet BOOTIFUL ladycats dream of me?

The power of the Rumble

I know for a lot of you January means freezing cold, snow and sniffles. For me, it means SUMMER! Sun and lazing around in sunpuddles and hoping that the Rumbleparents remember to turn the fan on so it wuffles my floofs...

On this lazy summer day, all a mancat really wants is his nip cigar.

I reallllllly want some nip, but it is soooooo far away
Maybe if I lean in a little bit...
If you look, you can see the tip of Hammy's tail.
And he is NOT HELPING me
C'mon Ham. Just give it a nudge my way!!
Darn. It's still sooooo far. Why can't it be close. I WISH YOU WERE CLOSE!
OMC!! The sheer power of my MIND moved this nip near!

I will now attempt to get some tunas, and some turkeys using the power of my mind. If it worked once, I know I can do it again! Ommmmmmm...

(Our friends at Furry Bottoms wanted to see the R2D2 that Rumbledad built - we'll post that in our next post!)

My new bed

Rumbledad got a Lego R2D2 for Christmas... I think that if Hammy was a robot, he'd be an R2D2. They just seem pretty similar. That doesn't mean I'd be C3P0 tho. I'm much too good looking.

The upside of him getting this? I get a new bed!!

It fits me perfectly! Thank you Santa!

Yeah that's right. You're not gonna throw this box away

I love a bed that accentuates my floofs!

I wonder if they make Lego Ewoks? I think I'd like an Ewok

And my new bed is multi-purpose! I also use it as a ramp - I run up it and launch myself onto any toys that are lying near by. It's awesome when a gift does so much.

Blurf is the noise we make when we're SO FULL of yummy stuff we don't want to move! Me and the Ham both had lots and lots of turkey and ham... we're so tuckered out we both went to sleep on the cat tower at the same time! A Catmas miracle!

Double blurf
I woke up when I heard that it was time for me to open my gifts! I say MY gifts, because that Ham didn't even open his eyes to look at them!

Our friend Miss Candy sent us this lovely nip-filled fishie! As you can see, I liked it (in a polite and demure way, as is my fashion)


I love you little fishie!

Nothing will ever come between us

And I won't let that Ham drool on you

And a lovely card too!
 And our friends at The Poupounette sent us these beautiful gifts!

Oooo shiny! 
I'm going to be mauling you latter, little bug toy!
Merry Catmas to you all, and we're sending lots of cuddles and purrs to all our pals.

Look at how totally helpful we are!

What cha doin', Rumbledad?
I'm not so sure you're doing this right. Maybe you should put this
guy into a box first? Boxes are pretty awesome...
And this end of the wrapping looks like it's a bit too much. You should use
less paper
*sigh* That Ham has no follow through

C'est moi!

Don't you just love it when your favourite chair has your name allll over it?

Maybe it should be "Le HANDSOME chat"?

Thank you all for your lovely birthday wishes! I had an excellent birthday, tho not as many treats as I deserved! I did get many snuggles, which was almost as good! And some chick-hen... which is TOTALLY good!

We are very thankful - a note from the Rumblemum

Hi all,

There is no Thanksgiving in New Zealand (and I miss it very much, I loooooove turkey!) This year though, we have our own Thanksgiving.

You may remember Rumbles being very ill about 6 months ago, and they found his heart was enlarged. Yesterday he had to go to the heart specialist for them to check his progress and see what happens next.

We are so thankful that his heart hasn’t gotten any worse, and his liver function is good as well (it wasn't last time). We are so thankful that he's happy, and zooming around and just generally being a wonderful boy.

Hammy was thankful when he came home - poor Ham was home alone all day, and I think he realised how much he loves his big bro.

And I'm thankful for all of you who were so kind when Rumbles was sick. I hope you're all having a Thanksgiving, no matter where you are in the world. :)

I am thankful for BOOTIFUL ladycats, tuna, the Rumbleparents, all my friends,
 and my favourite chair (ok... and Hammy)

Behold the BooBoo face!

Rumbledad has been COMPLAINING that we haven't been blogging enough. I try to tell him that we are weak and need more tuna to fortify us enough that we can write our blog daily. He just shakes his head. *sigh*

I think I've mentioned before that I have a nick-name... well I actually have a few, but my main one lately is BooBoo.

Why BooBoo, you may ask... well behold my BooBoo face!

Look how sweet I am!

Who could resist such a love-love face? Nobody, that's who!
Well ok, maybe HAMMY could resist. But I wasn't counting him. He can't
get me tunas.
