Feline Friends Friday: Sad Cat Diary

I’m not a sad cat myself, but I think we can all related to some of these inner kitty thoughts. I mean, all of us cats know you only do 2 belly rubs…more than that and we will likely attack. And those dang squirrels are always mocking me. Let us wallow in some shared kitty misery for a bit, but then cheer up, because it’s Friday!

Cat Lady Covets: Kitty Heart Pillow

Kitty Heart Pillow - Modcloth

What’s better than one kitty on a pillow? Two kitties in the shape of a heart! This pillow makes my heart burst with happiness πŸ™‚ And it almost makes me want another cat in the hopes that they would curl up and sleep like this together, but knowing Tux I’m not sure he would go for that. He’s the king of the house and commands our undivided attention at all times. And I do love the fact that if he wants to cuddle he has to come snuggle up to us. So for the time being I’ll just look at this adorable little pillow when I want to see kitties cuddling.

Daily Dose of Dapper: Lazy Birdwatching

So I was in the top-level of my perch drifting between sleep and birdwatching when I heard some interesting noises coming from the other window. Do I go look? I’m just so comfortable here, and so sleepy. Maybe I can just jump down with the front part of my body Β to investigate and my back-end can stay comfy? Yeah, I’m doing it!

Ok, now that I’m down here, I’m not really sure I can pull myself back up there without jumping down a level first. I have pretty strong abs but I don’t know think they’re that strong. Good idea in theory, not really in practice. Ugh, guess I have to jump down all the way now.

Tux Tuesday: CatConLA

So yesterday my Aunt Amy alerted us to CatConLA – a convention in Los Angeles this summer that’s basically like Comic-Con for cat lovers. OMG, can you believe it?! I think we pretty much have to go, right? We can promote tuxthedappergent.com, and also find out about all of the newest cat toys, food, apparel, and more. The speaker list is also pretty amazing (see below). The expo takes place on Saturday June 6th and Sunday June 7th, 2015 at The Reef LA. Who’s going to join us?!

Daily Dose of Dapper: Purrito

Tux burrito 1

Grandma came to visit this weekend, and I snuggled in her couch-bed sheets, making myself into a kitty burrito! I got so wrapped up in the sheets at one point that mom was looking for me and didn’t even know I was in there until I started moving a bit – I’m so sneaky!

Feline Friends Friday: Cats vs. Bananas

So we didn’t realize this was actually a thing, but apparently cats and bananas have been arch enemies for quite some time now (well, long enough to make a whole video montage). Watch as these felines battle the evil bananas, with a special surprise ending.

Cat Lady Covets: Cat Stripe Tote

Cat stripe tote

It’s pretty much guaranteed if you see me walking around SF I’ll have a tote bag with me. Partially because of the plastic bag ban (and requirement of paying 10 cents per paper bag) and partially because I’m just a bag lady. Girls require lots of stuff, and my tiny cross-body purse I carry all the time just doesn’t fit everything I need on a daily basis.

Since a tote has become an everyday accessory for me, I want to make sure I have a variety of cute, quality ones to choose from. I saw this tote at my favorite local boutique and fell in love with the simple design and black and white motif. Black pretty much goes with everything, and shows a love for cats without screaming “crazy cat lady.” Not that I mind that label, but subtle is always more chic πŸ˜‰

Daily Dose of Dapper: Pedicure Time

Tux licking toes

As a dapper gent, I like to keep up good grooming habits. That includes nails and feet, which most guys seem to forget about (or think it’s too “girly”). Let me tell you, there’s nothing like a great pedicure. I start by grabbing one of my feet, then licking and cleaning between my toes. After that I bite my toenails a bit to get rid of any hangnails or scraggly ends, and finish with a relaxing full-leg cleaning. It’s pretty amazing.

Daily Dose of Dapper: Cozy Treehouse

Tux in blanket

It was nice and warm over the weekend, but in typical San Francisco fashion, it cooled back down today. Mom noticed me all cuddled up in my tree, covering my nose with my tail to stay warm, so she wrapped my favorite soft blanket to keep me warm. What luxury! And since it feels like a Monday (does anyone else keep forgetting it’s Tuesday?!), I’m going to sleep in.
