MangoKittister 2011

Hey, Sage! This is Mystic. I’m talking to you. Pay attention!! I’m taking over because you sometimes are a thorn in my side.  Go chase a squirrel or something….

What? OK, OK!  You can have the computer back in a minute. Just let me tell about Mango Minster 2011. I’m entering in the Kitteh category and I hope I win! Then we’ll talk about who’s boss around here.

Speaking of talking, I can tell you I sure do qualify for the Kitteh category. First, and foremost, I’m a CAT. Not a wimpy D-O-G (shhhhh, don’t tell Sage I said that). There is no way I listen when our Hu-mans call me. Even for dinner or (gasp) a bite of ham. I hear them but I come when I want to. I have them so trained they bring the ham to me. How about that, Sage? Usually I’m in my meditation mode, curled up in a ball contemplating my toenails. I can do that for hours. And hours. And hours. Probably 20 hours a day, but who’s counting?

You ask what my favorite toys are? Well, give me a box anytime–none of that expensive cat nip infused mouse-looking stuff. And just let a fly get in my house. That requires acrobatics and skill to achieve the ultimate in torture. Then I sit back and watch my Hu-Mom finish it off with the fly swatter. One of the highest in Kitteh entertainment. But let me get on with my story.

You probably know I have a sister named Thailing. She looks like a long-haired Siamese but I’m the one who talks the most–that’s why I’m telling this story. Thailing likes to hang out on top of the pantry–she stays away from Sage. Sometimes she hangs off the fridge–of course it’s all about treats for her.

I think I need to give her some lessons on how to cope.

Talk about coping! I have put up with a lot. I can’t even enjoy a good bucket without Sage butting in.

I do love getting into things, though.But, when Sage took over the cat tree condo, well, that was a huge event. Thailing and I started eviction procedures, but Sage’s attorney won. We had to compromise–Sage got the condo and we got the penthouse. I sometimes curl up the condo, though, when Sage isn’t looking! (Don’t tell her though).

And then there was the sink incident. That was just the other day!

So, that’s my story. Don’t feel sorry for us. We get the upper hand lots of times. I even think we are becoming friends! I go over and rub on Sage sometimes and she told me she secretly liked it. Hehe, little does she know…….

  1. Thank you Ann, for a wonderful and funny story! All your pets are so beautiful and you write so well! I love to think what our animals might think!
    Have a lovely time! Teje and Nero
    Big hug for Sage!


  2. Oh Sage, I love your kitties!! It is so nice you all get along so well!! I can see who is boss in your house. It is the same in our house!
    Thanks for your visit, do come again soon.
    xx, Bambi, Happy & Fern


  3. Mystic, you seem very well balanced for a cat. You know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, and steadily mark your doggie by rubbing on her, until she is totally marked as belonging to you. Most devious, in true kitteh fashion. Good luck!

    Jed & Abby


  4. You are a little scary. I see the way you smack your hapless doggie in the face. The poor little dear. Momma says you are adorable. She is so easy. Good luck in the show.



  5. Hi Mystic, it is so unfair that Sage got the condo. I mean they call it a CAT tree for a reason. Our big lumbering oaf (Fenris) has invaded our study and is seriously cutting into our lap time. I mean how can you enjoy sitting in your Mom’s lap when a dog nose might be stuck in your face at any second. Socks has the humans trained to bring him treats, Scylla & Arty are working on it although Artemisia did get the Daddy to make scrambled eggs just for her when she first moved in. ~AS & S

  7. Mystic is our favorite. She is cuddly, a brilliant conversationalist in telling you about her day, and loves her puppies as long as Sage doesn’t forget not to rough-house. She starts each morning wanting a tummy rub while telling about her night.


  8. Mystic – How benevolent of you to allow Sage access to your kitty condo. I know I would do no such thing if Sage was at my house! – Queen Tasha


  9. Hi there, just wondering where you got your cat tree? I’ve been looking for one exactly like that and haven’t had much luck! Thank you in advance!
