Harry’s Kitty Korner #4: It’s Cold Outside but Warm in Grandma’s House

I’m glad my sister and I are indoor cats because it’s gotten really cold outside. There was supposed to be a snowstorm here, but we were lucky and only got the freezing temperatures. We had just a little snow a few days ago. I’d never seen the white stuff before because Hermione and I were born in the summer. I had fun looking out at it, but I was able to stay warm inside.

Hermione and I have been having fun playing with all the toys our grandma person, Debbie, has gotten us. One of our favorites is the “bee” toy. I love catching it in my mouth. After I jump and fly in the air after it a few times, I have to take a quick cat nap.

 

I still wish the old cat, Stripey, would become pals with us. He seems interested in us but then hisses or growls when he sees us and runs away. It’s okay. I’m sure he’ll come around one day. I’ve seen him sniffing around the house looking for us, and he even plays with our toys.

It’s great living with Debbie and her daughter. Hermione and I are treated like babies. Debbie even put a bumper sticker on her car about us.

Until next time. Handsome Harry aka Harold when I’m naughty.

Feature Friday Film: The Ups and Downs and Ins and Outs of Kittenproofing

If you’ve been keeping up with this blog, you’ll know that I’ve been featuring a Kitty Korner column written by my author’s real-life kittens, Harry and Hermione. These two kittens are sure keeping Debbie on her toes, so I thought I’d help her (and you readers) by showing some kitten proofing and cat-proofing tips. Have a mice weekend, and keep those kitties safe.

Hermione’s Kitty Korner Post #3: I’m a Curious Cat

Purrs, it’s Hermione with more adventures from my kittyhood to share. Now that my brother Harry and I have been exploring the Big House, we’re having so much fun. I’ve discovered many new things. Here are some of them.

Debbie’s desk is a great place to perch, but I don’t think she agrees. She tells me to get off her computer. I don’t understand why she objects. She keeps so many papers and other stuff up there.

A room they call the “kitchen” is full of fun spots. There’s a door that opens to a cold place with delicious smells. They call it a refrigerator. When someone opens it, I like to stick my head in and check out the yummy stuff inside.

I also found an invisible machine in the kitchen that makes water sounds. Debbie calls it a dishwasher. I can’t figure out what it is, but I’m very curious about it.

Further down the hall, there’s an interesting room. The people in this house go in this small place they call a “bathroom.” I think it’s similar to my litter box, but they close the door behind them when they go in there, and sometimes I hear a strange flushing sound when they leave.

Besides being curious, I’m also quite nosy. I love checking out what that girl Holly is doing on her phone all the time.

Now you all may be wondering the progress between my brother and I and the old cat, Stripey. It’s slow but sure. He still growls at us and occasionally swipes the air, but no fur has flown between us yet.

I’m almost six months now and, as I’m growing up, I’ve mastered some interesting skills. I can balance on my scratching post with my cute white booties.

I can also stretch high on the post. Aren’t I long?

Hope you’re enjoying my adventures. Purrs until next time, Hermione.

Harry’s Kitty Korner Post #3: My Mew Year’s Mews

Meow, there. It’s Harry with my third Kitty Korner post . Sorry I’m a little late wishing you all a Happy Mew Year, but I’ve been busy. Hermione and I (and Stripey, too) received lots of fun toys for Catmas. In fact, our stocking runneth over. Debbie put all our toys in a paw-printed box that has a lid, but she keeps it open, so we can jump in and take out our favorite playthings. As you can see, Hermione is quite adept at that.

  

What else have I been up to? Well, sis and I have been allowed to go into the big rooms more lately, and we’ve had some encounters of the Stripey kind. In fact, I got to sit on a window with the big cat, but I couldn’t get to close to him because he still hasn’t accepted us yet.

The younger human they call Holly has tried to introduce me to Stripey on his cat tree, but he bares his teeth and hisses.

On a happier note, I’ve been exploring the big house. I still can’t go in unescorted to the back room, bathroom, and master bedroom, but I love chasing toys across the kitchen floor with Hermione, and I found a hiding place under the pantry.

 

I also discovered this literally “cool” place when Debbie opened up this door in her kitchen. Not only is it cool, but it smells nice, too.

That’s about it for my New Year’s mews. Whiskering you all have a purrfect 2019.
