Going to need to enroll in the Maine Coon Protection Program... - Rumbles

Mummy has lots of knickknacks that for some reason moved to a very high bookshelf after I joined the family.

There were two cookie jars that were left on the counter because they were large (pfft. Like that's a reason)

This is one:

This is the other (oops):

Needless to say, I have no idea what happened, but I suspect it was that evil walking fish that has caused me grief in the past...

I'm sure that all my anipals know about the walking fish. It sneaks into our houses and does horrible things like scratch the sofas, chew shoes, knock things over... and WE get the blame!! Humans never see the walking fish because it has hypnotic powers over them. Only cats and dogs can see them, and we're the ones that get the blame for the evil it does!

I ask you... is this the face of someone that could do something naughty?

I might have to dye myself orange and paint on some stripes to avoid trouble...

MANcat Monday - Inigo

Sometimes a mancat wants to be alone. With his baby seal Thwack. On his pink blankie.

Independent front and rear Rumbles - Inigo

In case any of you doubted that my brother is a strange one, I have further proof. This is how he likes to sleep.

Yes, he actually is asleep in that photo. He was like that for about a half an hour. Daddy calls it 'Independent front and rear Rumbles' because he is soooo long that his front half doesn't know what his back half is doing most of the time.

He became aware that he was the subject of discussion and photos, but he wasn't really sure why. It didn't prompt him to move.

Nope. Still not moving. But fully awake at least.

He sleeps like that quite a bit, I don't know how he does it.

It's hard being the normal one in the house.

Proof we've enjoyed the holidays! - Inigo and Rumbles

Especially the ham. And the prawns. And the tuna.

We've been doing lots of zoomies to try and work off the xmas tum-tums, thank goodness we got some great jingle toys from our grandma!

This is still pretty darn fun.

Cuddling the mummy is a full time job - Inigo

Mummy and I have a long standing tradition of cuddles. Before Rumbles came, I would sleep along side her with my head on her pillow and she would put her arm around me like I was a teddy bear. I'd purr her to sleep.

After Rumbles joined the family, this lessened... mostly because Rumbles decided that all the mummy cuddles belong to him *harumph* I couldn't be fussed to argue it. I was a little put out to see him take up MY spot next to her, with HIS head on her pillow getting the teddy bear cuddles... but a good big brother puts up with such things.

Since mummy hasn't been feeling well, I decided it has something to do with the inadequacy of the Rumblepurr cuddling. Because of this, I've taken over my rightful cuddle spot.

Rumbles has not taken the news of his usurping well.

Last night he jumped on the bed and stood there, waiting for me to move. I didn't.

Then came the nudge. Gentle at first, but more insistent. I ignored him. He tried the nudge on mummy but she ignored him as well.

He moved to the bedside table and thought over his options. A few moments later came the POKE. First he poked me between the ears. I didn't react. Then he poked mummy's face. She didn't react.

Victory for ME!!! Rumbles retreated to knock things off of shelves, and I slept the night content in my cuddles.

Our award (finally!!!)

We're sorry mummy has been so slack with letting us blog, we've been very patient with her till now... but if she didn't get the lead out she was going to be getting some toe nomming tonite!

A MILLION thank yous to our friends, BOOTIFUL Katie and her HUBBA HUBBA mummy GloGirly! If you haven't see their blog, you need to! 

This is such an honor, and with honor comes responsibility! So here are the rules:

  1. Copy and paste the Kreativ Blogger picture onto your blog. 
  2. Thank the person who gave you the award and post a link to their blog.
  3. Write 7 things about yourself we do not know.
  4. Choose 7 other bloggers to award. 
  5. Links to those 7 other bloggers.
  6. Notify your 7 bloggers. 

And on to our facts!

Rumble facts:

When Inigo first came to live here he made himself right at home right away, but his favorite place was on his tower. In fact, Inigo loved his tower so much for the first two weeks Daddy would move the tower into the bedroom so that Inigo could sleep on it next to the bed (and it is not a small tower!)

(2) Inigo used to TELL on me when I did things that I shouldn't!! If I stood on one of Daddy's speakers (a no cat zone) Inigo would run around mewing till someone came and took me off! (Inigo quickly learned to run directly to Daddy rather than Mummy, 'cause Mummy would just take pictures rather than take me down)

(3) I have a real hatred of the Koala that lives on the shelf

Fluffle facts:

(4) Rumbles was once sleeping so soundly on the back of the sofa that he fell OFF and onto the floor... and didn't even wake up!!

(5) Everything that I do, Rumbles HAS to try. He's even got the 'ragdoll flop' mastered (but he's still not as good at it as I am)

(6) The one toy that Rumbles is not allowed to even go near is my beloved baby seal, Thwack. I think he knows that Thwack is off-limits, cause he doesn't even try

Rumblebum fact:

(7) When Daddy isn't home, we like to snuggle. We don't do it when he's around and it makes him think that mummy is telling tall tales when she says that we were snuggling.

And now, our seven friends!!

(1) George the Duck (cause we wanna know his secrets, he's a mighty fine duck)
(2) Our very articulate pal, Misha
(3) The lovely Miss Sweet Praline, who keeps us very entertained
(4) Cleo, who is far from grouchy!
(6) Sparkle, of the sparkling wit and wisdom!
(7) Your Daily Cute - we wanna hear Moo stories!

Bad mummy...

Sorry all, mummy hasn't been well and she is neglecting our blog.

The good news is that she is paying more attention to US!

The bad news is that she isn't sharing us with you.

We'll be back soon - especially as we've won a cool award from our pals Glogirly and Katie!!
