Double Duty

Apparently the Roomba/Scooba is not only for cleaning your floors, it doubles as a kitty transportation device!

Thousand Word Thurday

Sometimes it is hard for my IRL friends and family to believe the stories I tell them about Buttercup since no one ever sees her (with the exception of my mom I think!) She is the shyest little girl when strangers appear. I don't know why she is like that. But without further ado, here is my eccentric little princess Buttercup:

This habit can get a little annoying, especially when you walk through the kitchen and step in a puddle, but it is getting better. We have changed to bowls that do not tip over, so at least some of the water remains in the dish. She used to do this with the water bowl that had the huge reservoir bottle on it. She'd push it with her head until the bottle would come off spilling a gallon of water all over the floor. Now that was a mess to clean up.

The Guardian

Remember the box from CTMH? Little Bear has made it her job to protect it at all times and get some belly rubs for being so cute about it.

Do they get along?

A few people have asked if my cats all get along. Here is the answer.
Buttercup and Bunnie cuddling yesterday:And them about three seconds later:
But seriously, they all do get along fairly well. The exception now is with Little Bear and Bunnie. Since Bunnie is getting older I think she is vying for a higher level in the household pecking order. Plus she is about 9 months old which makes her like an adolescent. One second she is sweet and then she is a rascal! Notice she is the instigator in the photo above. And 99% of the time, she is the instigator in all play fights (or real ones). She just really likes to try and get Bear riled up. She hisses at her when she passes and will even swat! Little Bear takes little notice of her behavior, but I know if things get out of hand, Bear will be more than happy to set Bunnie straight. Afterall, this was her home first!

One Word Wednesday

SUN!!!

Buttercup is usually coiled in a tight ball while sleeping, but apparently when the sun is out she does this goddess-like pose.

Let me introduce meow-self...


I am Oscar P. Fleas. What does the "P" stand for you ask? Pumpkin. Not one of my prouder moments letting the humans talk me into that name. But at least they usually just call me Oscar. Yes, I was named after the furry green guy from Sesame Street. Because, supposedly, I looked grouchy when I was disturbed from my naps as a kitten. Let me just add, wouldn't you be grouchy too? The human I refer to as The Provider of My Food (POMF) is running this new blog and wanted one of us (her four cats) to give a little introduction about ourselves and what we will be posting about. I immediately volunteered. After all, I have many roles here including being the head of the welcoming committee. So I, Oscar of the house of four purrs, welcome you, reader, to our newly established blog. May you find many posts to scratch on...oh not that kind of post? Well what good is this thing then?...ahem....make yourself at home. And now, my human would like to say a few words.

Thanks Oscar. What a lovely intro. I know you love me for more than just providing your food. But we can reveal your softer side in a later post. Welcome to my blog about cats. Mostly the four I own, but I know there will be a few appearances by some cousins and maybe even friends. And so we are all on the same page, here are my four purr-babies in order of age:
Little Bear has been with us almost 5 years.
We got Oscar (as seen at top of post) in October of 2005, he will be four in August.

Buttercup was from a litter of seven that I fostered the 2007. We had to keep her. Ok, I had to keep her.
And Bunnie was my last foster in 2008. She will be one in May.

So there you have the cast of "characters" that will be telling their tales on Life with 4 Purrs. I hope you will share some of your pet stories with us as well. Thanks for stopping and see you soon.

PS Oscar requests that you bring catnip!
