H is for


Mom bought catnip and catnip spray last night and my siblings and I are going crazy! Momma is enjoying the antics and laughing at us, but that's okay! Catnip is way too awesome. She bought the catnip seeds below and it's currently in the process of germinating right now. I'm so excited!

G is for


Getting into the garbage can is just oh so much fun! There's so many treasures stashed away in the black bags. I can't believe some of the things that my humans are willing to toss. Tasty morsels of food, things that make perfect toys, etc. I just don't understand how they could get rid of stuff.

F is for


Having been an outdoor cat in the beginning of my life, I was well aware of the nasty, vile little creatures. I can't think of one cat that enjoys having the blood-suckers eating away at them. The first thing my mom did when she brought me home was give me a bath and put some icky smelling stuff on me to rid me of fleas.

Now I don't have to bother with fleas too much. The humans sweep the floor often, add apple cider vinegar to our water, put stuff on the carpet, and put stuff on us to make sure we don't get fleas. Every once in a while there will be an outbreak since my older siblings go outside, but it doesn't get too bad.

And let's just say that I have lots of it!

I'm constantly on the move! I run, I jump, I lunge, I dart, I attack, I maul... Sometimes I wonder if somebody spikes my water with energy drinks! I can't even imagine how I would be with an energy drink in my system. I think I would drive everybody crazy.

I think what contributes to my energy is the fact that I am still a kitten, but man oh man do I wonder if I'll ever slow down. It's quite enjoyable to be so energetic. Especially when I can drive everyone crazy.

My mom has a 13 year old Labrador mix named Sandy and I adore her. I jump on her back, attack her tail and legs, and eat from her food bowl when she's trying to eat. For some reason she puts up with me! Every once in a while she'll bark a warning at me, but not once has she bit me.

I love you, Sandy!

C is for


My first experience with canned food was back on the day that I was captured. Mom gave me a couple spoonfuls before she carted me off to the vet clinic. Since that day I have been absolutely obsessed with the stuff! It is so tasty in comparison to the dry kibble that the humans force us to eat.

B is for....


I admit it. I seriously am obsessed with banana peels and I don't have a clue why. If there's a banana peel sitting somewhere within my reach I will go for it! They make an awesome toy and I read somewhere that fleas generally stay away from them, so it's a win-win situation!

But really, my banana peel obsession isn't all that weird. I mean, c'mon, I'm a kitten and I'll play with anything. Plastic grocery bags, clumps of Angelo's hair, milk jug rings, string, cardboard boxes, chapstick tubes... The list could go on and on and on.

Back to the subject of bananas! There's a song about banana phones. That's reason enough to love them, right?

A is for Aiyana - Yup, that's me!

Fancy that! I can use myself as the subject for my first post for the A to Z Challenge.

I am a tortie kitten getting close to 7 months old. My mom initially rescued me when I was around 5 weeks old from a gas station parking lot when I was really sick. She brought me home, nursed me back to help, and I joined the group of cats in the house.

I have 5 brothers and 1 sister, and I have to say I am the crazy one! I terrorize all of them, even the cranky old Russell who doesn't like anyone. I'm constantly getting into trouble and being a butthead. Like for last night as an example, I was trying to eat the airline tubing that my mom has for a fish tank in her room. She told me no, shooed me down, and I went crawling for her forgiveness. 10 minutes later I was back to it.

Here's a list of some of my favorite things ever:
Belly rubs.
Tubes of chapstick!
Helping with puzzles. (Although, it's more like stealing puzzle pieces than helping.)
Lazer lights are the best invention ever.
The dog's treats.
Strings on pants.
Plastic bags.
Good hiding places to sneak up on people and attack them.
Wet food.
The dog's food.
Harassing the other cats to play.

That's all I'll post for now 'cause I have a to-do list today about a mile long.

Mom is borrowing a camera. I was sleeping when she decided to bother me.
