Ramona's Top Cats

Canberra BKThis little sweetheart is Miss Ramona. She had a very rough start in life. She was very sick and almost lost an eye, but thanks to some very nice beans, she's now happy and healthy. She lives with her biological brother Harper, her adopted brother Brendan (who is a very wise senior catizen who teaches her the ways of the cat), and two very nice beans.

Miss Ramona feels lucky to have found such a wonderful furrever home. She knows not all poodins are so lucky, so she's set up a team ('Ramona's Top Cats') to help raise money for the Conway Area Humane Society to help other poodins in need.

Rest in Peace, Sweet Trixie

We are all very sad to learn that Trixie went to The Bridge this morning.

We will all miss you Miss Trixie, but we are comforted to know that you had a long and happy life and that you are with your brofurs, Norton and Ralphie, now. We know how much you missed them, especially Norton.

Rest in Peace, Sweet Trixie.

Little Luna - all your poodin friends are thinking about you and hoping furry much that you can find your way home.

Tiny baby kitten cleaning her tail

Y'know what's possibly even cuter than a kitten who is tiny and sleepy? A kitten who is tiny and who is holding her little tail between front paws and giving it a good clean.

Five things about Canberra BK and Jasmine

Here are the rules (copied from Eric and Flynn who tagged me):
The player of this game starts with 5 weird things/habits about their self. In the end, you need to choose 5 people to be tagged and list their names. The people/kitties who get tagged need to write a blog about their 5 weird things/habits, and state the rules clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victims a comment on their blog that says, "You're tagged, read my blog for details".
Update: was just catching up on some blogs and I discovered that Sweet Ariel tagged me too!

Five things about Canberra BK

Canberra BK1. I love to have conversations. I never stop vocalising, unless I'm asleep. When I see Jasmine, I start meowing (I usually have lots to tell her). Then when Jasmine pats me and tickles my tummy, my meowing turns into purring. Then as I start to doze off, the purring gets a little quieter, but keeps going. Jasmine can always tell when I've eventually fallen asleep because that's the only time I'm quiet! :)

2. I'm very daring and not afraid of high places. Sometimes when Jasmine is in the shower and has left the bathroom door open a little bit (I ask her to because I don't like it when the door is closed!), I jump up onto the bathroom sink and then to the top edge of the shower frame so I can keep having conversations with her, and also check out the ceiling.

3. I love pats and noogies and headbutts more than anything, even more than food! When I see Jasmine, I usually head for the bed, or my special snoozy spot (a place up high on a pile of storage boxes which Jasmine has covered with lots of soft blankets), and demand pats, rather than heading for the cold box and demanding food.

4. I don't really like to be picked up and held (although I will let Jasmine do this briefly), but other than that I'm a super-friendly poodin. I will very happily give headbutts to, and have conversations with, pretty much everyone.

5. I can distinguish the sound of Jasmine's car from other cars.

The other thing I was thinking when writing this list is that I very much like to 'splore and 'vestigate things and also to sit in boxes, but these aren't weird habits because all poodins love these things! =^..^=

Five things about Jasmine

Jasmine1. She is kinda obsessed with Rubik's cubes and solves them over and over again. Her best time is 20 seconds, her average time is 29-30 seconds. Here's a video of her speedcubing on the London Eye last year. She can also solve it one-handed (although this takes several minutes instead of 30 seconds) which means that she can pat a kitty and solve a cube at the same time!

2. She likes to teach other people how to solve the Rubik's cube. She even wrote a beginner solution, which she has used to teach lotsa beans. Not sure how this would go with poodins though. I think opposable thumbs are pretty important for for being a good Rubik's cube speedsolver.

3. She has always loved poodins very much, even when she was just a little burpy thing. This is obviously not weird since poodins are awesome, but she also told me she doesn't want to have little burpy things, she just wants poodins! Is this weird? Not sure.

4. She is also kinda obsessed with tech gadgets. She loves her iPAQ hx4705 and has it with her always.

5. She likes to combine her obsessions, so she synchronises all the poodin blogs to her iPAQ. This means she can read them on her iPAQ while on the train or while curled up in bed.

Now I tag Storm & Mocha, and Grr, Midnight & Cocoa. I realise this is only two kitty families, but there are five poodins!

I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by Eric and Flynn! I need to post 5 weird things about me and about Jasmine. I need to have a think about this, so for now, I'll leave you with another sleepy kitten to enjoy. Purrs.
