Oh woe is me!

My friends, I am being horribly neglected lately. Rumblemum has been busy with work and she's taking some classes... including DRIVING class. She better not be thinking of driving me to the VET.


It's so hard being abandoned.

I don't know quite what to do with myself

NO Hammy. I don't know when she'll be home.

It better be SOON tho.

Layers of cute

I've finally taught that Ham his place.

As the older brother, I should have first pick of where I want to sit (which is usually on MY chair) and that Ham should adapt and find a place of his own.

Good boy Hammy

Training is hard work

I've decided it's time to train the Rumblemum. She's pretty smart (for a human) and I think she has lots of potential. She's picked up my first lesson very well!

When she gets home from work every night I've got her trained to say 'Smoochies... SMOOCHIES...' and lean in towards me. As a reward I give her a smoochie.

My next lesson will have something to do with tunas. Lots of tunas.

SMOOOOOCHIES!!!!
A bit of good news about that poor freezing kitty from the other day - the wonderful people at The Southern Cat Connection have rescued and named her Sunrise! Here's hoping that she finds a wonderful forever home soon. You can find out more about this kitty on Dashkitten.com :)

Things are out of balance here....

I have always been the one to cuddle Rumblemum at night, I have a special place up by her head.

Lately that HAM has been stealing my cuddles *pout* He goes and snuggles up to Rumblemum and I don't wanna have to be near him... so no cuddles for me :(

Rumblemum has a bit of a dilemma (or so she SAYS!) because she loves us both equally, she doesn't want to push Hammy away when he comes for cuddles... but she sure misses my cuddles.

Who WOULDN'T wanna cuddle ME?

In a turn of good luck I found a way I might be able to turn this around and show her who the most deserving kitty is... recently I won THIS!!

Ooo shiny!! 
It's the Mark Poulin ring from Glogirly's contest a while back!! Rumblemum LOVES it and I was super thrilled to have won it. Maybe this will show her who should be getting ALL her cuddles... *pointed look at Rumblemum*

A big thank you to Mark Poulin and Glogirly, and an EXTRA special thank you to Miss Katie from Glogirly  (and some SMOOCHIES to her as well!)

Easy like Sunday Rumblepurrs

My friends, it was a lovely summer day today. Hammy and I enjoyed the sun and lounged around. I reclaimed MY chair.

Even though this chair smells of Ham, I claim it as mine

Hammy you can stop hopping around, I'm
not moving!

Le chat - that's ME! 

Somebody peel me some tuna and feed it
to me

Par-tay!

Rumbledad had a Superbowl Party this year, and I hosted it! Because the game airs here on a Monday, Rumblemum (who does not care for football one bit!) had to work and that left ME in charge.

There were a great many shenanigans during the day, including that Ham flaunting his tummy and making beggie eyes for snacks! He also managed to steal a rib-bone off of someones plate (he was immediately caught and the bone confiscated, at which point he howled for it! Hammy, you are a cat. Not a woofie. Just sayin'.)

I kept the general order around here, and the house was in tip top shape when Rumblemum got home. I may or may not have flaunted my tummy as well, but what happens at Superbowl stays at Superbowl.


Hard work being me

Fly free, sweet Prancer Pie

A special mancat has gone to the bridge - Prancer Pie from the Prancer Pie blog has passed tragically soon.


We send our purrs to his family. Fly free sweet Prancer, I know our Inigo will be there to meet you.

Comments are off for this post - please can you take a moment to stop by his blog and say some words to his family.

Proof that the Ham is a weirdo

We were lying in the sunpuddles the other day, totally enjoying the warm... till Hammy felt that he'd had enough warmth.

So he did this.

Check it out Rumbles! I'm under cover!
Ohhhh Hammy. *sigh* 
What? I'm SUPER comfy.
...because MOVING out of the sunpuddle would have been silly. Ohhhh Hammy.

It's a trap!

We recently got an email from the good folks at Dropcam - they're doing a fun blog challange! They wanted us to post about our quirks...

Hammy and I both LOVE these super floofy blankies. Rumblemum bought several of them because they're so soft, so now there's one in almost every room of the apartment.

Hammy and I cannot resist them! Whenever we put our paws on them, we are compelled to knead them then floomp into a puddle.

Well yesterday I took it one step further. I became a very floofy purr-ito!

How can this be so comfy?

Who cares, it's like a cloud! 
This is the best quirk EVER!

Some Sparkle in our lives!!

It has been a remarkable week.

First off, our wonderful new shopping tote! Miss Sparkle the Designer Cat is on it!! I (of course) love it for the bootiful ladycat on the outside. I also love it because Rumblemum bought some fresh fish and put it in there! You can get one of your own on Zazzle, and they help get the message out that declawing is not cool.

Then we got our Secret Santa gift... and it was from Miss Sparkle!! What an awesome coincidence, it's a Sparkley week, for sure!

Pretty sure it says 'Hammy' 

But... the big news? THIS was on the front of the package! Those Customs kitties must have been napping, they didn't steal my toys! Or maybe Binga gave them the hard word? Either way - WOO HOO!

Hooray! It passed!
NO Hammy. It CLEARLY says d'Artagnan Rumblepurr. Nothing about
YOU.
Inside... was MAGIC.


Oooo bubblewrap and packing paper! I must maul you!

I spent like 10 minutes mauling the wrapping. I loved the bubble wrap. In this photo you can see I've mauled it so it's by my back paws, which are for MEGA MAULING.


BUNNYKICK!!
Of course everything that I do, that Ham has to do too.

Ooo this IS fun!
Ok, make with the gifts now!
I like THIS one!

Look at all this LOOT!! We LOVED every bit of it!


SILVERVINE FISHIES!!!
MEGA GREENIES!!!
And there was a bootiful card as well!

OoooooOooOoo
There was even something for Rumblemum!! A while back some stranger kitties came in and knocked her Bast statue off its shelf. Several times. Till it lost an ear and had dents in it. Miss Sparkle send a bootiful NEW statue!

So pretty!

Rumblemum took many, many photos of me doing goofy things like this with my new toys:


WAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!
Till she smartened up and just made a video.



Thank you SO much to Miss Sparkle. We are thrilled. Rumblemum has taken at least a million photos. All is right in the world.

Happy new year to all my friends, I hope that 2014 is a wonderful year.

Le Ham

Hello my friends! This is HAMMY!!

I wanted to let you know that we had a GOOD Xmas. I got... HAM!! Yes, I got lots of ham. I also discovered that I LOVE turkey almost as much (Rumbles says turkey is better than ham. I don't quite agree with him yet)

Today is New Years eve for us, and I'm hoping me and Rumbles get some champagne ham at midnight. I know where I'll be sitting - in my favorite chair!

See? It says 'Le Chat' - that's ME!
*whispers* Rumbles is a little cross with me. He says this chair is his chair... but look how cute I am!

2014 is the year of the Ham

Happy New Years to all my friends, I hope it's a wonderful year for you all and that the bridge stays CLOSED in 2014.

And now a note from Rumbles...

And ladies? I'll be here on MY chair, ready for the midnight smoochies!

Finally! I get to open the #oznzmas Secret Santa package!

Woo hoo!! I FINALLY got to open my #oznzmas Secret Santa gift! (Tho I MAY have already tried to open it when Rumblemum brought it in from the mail...*innocent eyes*)

But I didn't ACTUALLY open it, so Santa couldn't
be mad.

I went mental over the package - I wanted it open NOW NOW NOW! Inside the bag was another bag, a really pretty one! Of course as a refined mancat, I patiently waited for my gift.

MINE! MINE! GIMME!
If I had thumbs this would be unpacked by now.
Hurry it up.
And what was that Ham doing?

Wake me when it's time to carve the ham.
But back to ME and MY gift...

Oooooo... this looks GOOD!
It says 'Party Mix'... I need some BOOTIFUL
ladycats to come by and share!

I sure like the smell of these ones!
Gonna get this open...
MIGHTY PAW power!
Attackkkkkkk!!
HaHA! I showed this package who was boss.

You can see in the last photo that Rumblemum got something as well! A really pretty bracelet!

We all feel really lucky (even lazy Hammy) and we want to say a BIG thank you to our Secret Santa!

Outside in the Kritter Kondo!!

We sure love summer, and we were so excited to go out on our deck for the first time!!

 Rumblemum wanted to make sure we were safe, so she won't let us go out unless we're in our Kritter Kondo. We loved going out when we lived at our old apartment but it's even MORE fun to go out in this apartment! There are all sorts of birds flying by, and we can smell the trees and stuff!

ooooOoooO... I love the smell of outside!
Look how wide my eyes are! 
Hmmm, it feels like someone is watching me...
Oooo Rumbles! Look at the birdies!
Do you think if we worked together we
could catch them?
*drool*
I'm gonna head inside and get some bird
seed.
Don't you go anywhere, Mister Bird!
We had so much fun outside, and we can't wait to go out again. We really want to thank our friends at Kritter Kommunity for inventing such a wonderful product, and an extra big thank-you for the amazing customer service recently. They really went above and beyond to make sure our order got to us.
