Cher has informed me that she likes to play “find the kitties” in my daily outfit posts. Since they show up so often in my posts, I’ve decided I need to introduce them and explain why they’re always there.
This is Ruckus.
We adopted her about two years ago (on Valentines Day!). She likes to play fetch and carry around her favorite toys (not kidding), swim in the tub (not kidding) and go for walks (still not kidding). What? You don’t believe me? Well, I’ll give you some links to videos proving these feats in a little bit.
This is her favorite toy. They were on clearance at Target last year, they look kinda like Saturn with a big ring and a bell in the middle. We have about five left. She’s destroyed the others or they are lost in the dark abyss underneath my stove/fridge that I refuse to clean out for fear of what else I might find (gremlins?).
This is Meatloaf (or The Meatloafy)
She is attention hog and LOVES Joe, my husband. I can prove it.
This is Meatloaf. Laying on Joe (hi Joe!) and he’s not holding her down. She’s just laying there. For real. I have quite a few pictures like that. It was just too cute!
Anyway, they tend to follow me around when I get home because it’s dinnertime and I haven’t been home all day (they love me!). I take my outfit photos at night (I have more time), usually right after I walk in the door. But, I will feed the little monsters first. Then, I rush out, set up the tripod and take the photos, attempting to do it before they’re done eating. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Meatloaf also LOVES my tripod. She bites the legs pretty much everyday.
Unfortunately, this is the best shot I have of her chewing on the legs because she kept moving!
When Rucku and Loafy (my weird little nicknames for them) aren’t terrorizing me when I try to take pictures, they can often be found sleeping. Pretty much anywhere. But the best (and cutest) sleep spots are those that interfere with me or Joe.
Ruckus, for example, likes to nap on me. More specifically, my feet.
Yup. Those are my feet. Ruckus curled up around them and on them. My feet went numb. I didn’t have the heart to move her and thankfully my camera was within reach!
Loafy likes to sleep on Joe (as you saw above), on Joe’s coat, or on the rare occasion that she can’t be on Joe or on his coat, she likes to sleep wrapped up in a blanket on a pillow. For real.
Come to think of it, Ruckus likes to sleep under the covers too. But she’s much cuter about it. WARNING- this photo is the cutest thing you will see today, probably this week. Ruckus really was passed out under the blanket like this- don’t mind the noise, it was taken with my cell phone.
Oh yea and this is in my bed!
The little monsters are spoiled and loved. They LOVE attention and people, so I figure you should all get to know who they are, since they wind up in so many of my photos.
They are hilarious. If you want to see videos of Ruckus playing fetch, eating fries or swimming in the tub, check out their blog (yes, my cats have a blog!). There are tons of videos, photos and other hilarious stuff to keep you entertained.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming!
