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.

To infinity!!!

We have been coveting all the photos of you guys who have those infinity scratchers, so when Rumblemum saw one on sale she knew she had to get it for us.

Rumbledad scoffed and said we would never use it. Boy did I prove him wrong!

This is GREAT!

So comfy! It's contouring to my rumble-curves perfectly!

I reckon this must be a throne, because I feel regal.

King Rumblepurr - admire me, loyal subjects!

What do you mean 'I'm not using this for the purpose in which it was intended'?

Me and Hammy don't want to use this as a scratching post, it's way to comfy. Not that I let Hammy sit on it. It's MINE.

Sometimes me and the Ham work together

Rumblemummy tries to be very sneaky when she makes the bed, because me and the Ham LOVE to help.

We've learned that if we stand on the sheets she's trying to take off, she will bribe us with Greenies and Orijen Tundra treats to get us off. If we nom them REALLY quick we can zoom back to stand on the new sheets she tries to put on the bed (and then we get MORE treats!)

Today she thought she would do the sheets while we had our dinner. Nice try Rumblemum, but I cottoned on to what she was doing and zoomed in to help. Hammy noticed my zooming, and he was right behind me!

So we both got to have appetizers before dinner! heh heh heh

And now, behold my handsomeness.

I am NightRumble - protector of the city and bed!

Wait - I think I hear a sheet being put on! I'm on my way!!

Unfairness in the House of Ham

Hello everyone, it's HAMMY here!

And a special hello to Miss Brulee!! *tee hee*

It's so unfair. I want to play with my toys, but I can never find them! Do you know why?

It's because RUMBLES likes to take EVERY toy from the fun, sunny living-room and transport them into the back bedroom!

Well hello toys. I've been looking for you.
I don't understand it. It is not a short trip either! He has to drag them alllllll the way down the long hallway...

Long hallway is long
And then it's like he just makes a pile out of them! He doesn't even PLAY with them, he just likes to surround himself with toys.

 Why can't I have my OWN toys. HAMMY toys?

Do you know what he says when I ask him? I bet you can guess... he says....

*innocent eyes*
Is it any wonder I look gruff sometimes?

Beware the gruff

That Ham... he has the nickname 'Gruff-puff' because THIS:

Bah humbug!

Office manager

Rumblemum gets to work from home on Fridays, and I get to be her supervisor.

Without me, nothing would get done.

You're not working hard enough, Rumblemum

Hammy the diva

Rumblemum has been trying to get a photo of "her big handsome Ham" in honour of this being his calendar day on the CB calendar.

He says he won't look at the camera for anything less than two packs of ham.

As his agent, I claim 100% of any ham revenue gathered from his image, so I'm trying to encourage him that he needs to have a photo taken. He's still refusing (I think he may be smarter than I suspect...)

And so, I give you... ME!

Behold the paw perfection!

Action Sunday!

I figured you guys must be getting sick of Sunday Ham, so here's a few shots of me in action. I'm a very mighty hunter, as you can see. My prey? A blue spring. I am very careful, they say the blue ones are the most devious ones of all...

See my mighty stance? I am poetry in motion!
I'm too fast for the camera!!
My handsome tocks are mocking your camera, Rumblemum!
Now I pause to give a little bit of 'Boo-Boo Steel' 
(for the ladies)
Then I'm back on the hunt!

The sad part of blogging

We lost a beautiful friend today, one of our very first friends from the blogosphere.

Sparkle the Designer Cat was more than a beautiful ladycat, she was kindness and an encouraging voice for us. Her stories about life with Binga and Boodie made us feel like they lived next door. Funny and educational and never dull... Sparkle was the total package. 

Our heart goes out to her family. She will never be forgotten. 

Comments are closed on this post, but if you could please stop by her blog and leave one for her family.

RUMBLES! It's time to PLAY!

You can see the mischief in my eyes!
Not nap time! NO NO! It's PLAYTIME!

Sunday Ham

Hello everyone, it's HAMMY!! I know Rumbles posted some photos of the new tower a couple of days ago, but he neglected to post any photos of ME!

Welcome to Hammy Towers! 
We both love the tower, but it's a bit of a competition as to who goes where. Lately I've been enjoying being on the very, very top!

How's it goin' down there, Rumbles?
I'm pretty sure Rumbles doesn't mind me being the tallest kitty in the whole world. I think he quite likes it actually.

Hmmm... you know, if we broke through the ceiling, we could add another
level on to Hammy towers...

Attention: Ladycats of the interwebs!

I'm just going to sit here... on my soft
fluffy blankie... ALLLL by myself...

If any ladycats wanted to come over for
a snuggle...I could probably find some room 

for you...
