Qtip Hates Her Halloween Costume!

Qtip is a grouchy peacock~

Qtip hated her Halloween costume!

For the first time ever, she ran off while trying to put it on and wedged herself under the bed!

Lol, she did get a trip to the neighbor's house later to make up for it.

Qtip the Cat Breaking into Neighbor's House

Qtip the Cat Burlar strikes again!

Qtip let herself into the neighbor's apartment, and in the last pic the owner, Ed, is saying hi to Qtip.

This apartment is where neighborhood cats Yellow and Jobs live, and Qtip always loves to visit, or break an entering, as it were.  Click the link for more pics.

A Seahorse Swimming

Action shot of a seahorse swimming.  Well, technically he is just hanging out attached to a leaf of seaweed.

Aren't these creatures amazing!?

Pic taken at the Monterey Aquarium.

Pussy Pole Dancing

Our motto is 'Every Hole is a Goal'.  Apparently, Qtip's motto is 'Every Pole is a Goal'.  Qtip does some pussy pole dancing in the garage.

The bottom of the pole has been wrapped with carpet to protect cars from scratching, but the top part of the pole, which Qtip is shown climbing, is just paint.  Click the link for more pics

Qtip is a Sneakerhead Cat

Qtip is a sneakerhead cat.  She has an especially fond spot for the Supra Skytop, and used to pose inside pairs of them when she was a kitten.

Here is a series of shots of Qtip posing in front of a giant outdoor wheatpaste of a Supra Skytop II.

Qtip the Cat Attacks Again!

Qtip attacked her Dad again, leaving him with bleeding scratches up and down his arms. This is the 2nd most vicious attack that Qtip has handed out.

The first and craziest attack can be seen HERE.

As we wrote the first time, this is why you might want to not take your cat out on leash! (but we keep doing it!)

Actually, Qtip attacks like this when she is scared, and she seems to be most aggressive when scared outside.  Oh man.  Click the jump for more pics of blood and gore.

Cat Burglar Caught Red Handed!

Qtip is a funny cat, and one thing she loves to do is break into neighbor's houses and apartments.

Here are pics of Qtip the Cat Burglar caught red handed trying to climb into the neighbor's window.

As you can see, Qtip gets busted by the cat who lives there, who then struts around tail up!

The 1st Scratch Ever from Iggy!

Iggy is such a sweetheart, that she never even scratched Mom or Dad while she was going through her kitten stages.  Well, technically Iggy still is a kitten, but she has already blossomed into a well behaved fine young lady.

The other day, Iggy scratched our foot for the first time, but it wasn't on purpose.  If fact, it was probably Dad's fault.  Dad was playing with Iggy in the shower, but then he forgot that she was in there and turned the water on Iggy in there!  Iggy came skyrocketing out, and accidentally scratched Dad's foot on the way.

Sorry Iggy!  (but Iggy is such a sweetheart that she was soon purring and cuddling wrapped up in a dry towel.)

Iggy is a Guitar Lover

Iggy is the sweetest cat in the world.  All she wants to do is give love, play and pet from being petted.

This shot was taken looking straight down after Iggy came up and nestled herself in between my body and the guitar.  She looks up as if to ask, 'Is this alright?'

Of course it is, Iggy you sweetheart!

Too Fast For Pics

Even though it was daytime, Iggy was too fast for a pic!

Cat Shaming - Qtip Dragged Poop onto Mom's Yoga Mat

When it comes to the litter box, Qtip is a very good cat and has never pooped outside of it.

However, Qtip does have long hair and sometimes poop from the litter box will get stuck in her hair and dragged around the house.

Well, last week Qtip brought a whole ball of poop and left it right on Mom's Yoga mat.

Shame Qtip! (but you can see from the look on her face that she is not too embarassed!).

This Cat Does Not Trust Cameras

Iggy is the sweetest, gentlest, most trusting cat.  But she doesn't trust cameras.  If your hand reaches out to her by itself, she will lean into it, and pet herself against your hand purring.  But if you reach out while holding a camera, she gives you this look of not being sure, before getting up and walking away.

Qtip, on the other hand, is a ham for the camera.

Warning: Smog Can Lead to Health Hazards like Albinism

Smog pollution can lead to a lot of problematic health conditions--just not sure that albinism is one of them.

But Iggy the Albino Cat is pictured chilling on top of a Smog City sticker on a guitar case.

Pussy's and Bikini Tops

 Iggy the pussy cat also loves stealing mom's underwear and stuff.

Here she is perched over her prize of mom's bikini top.  Look at her claim it with the expression on her face in the 2nd pic.

Iggy liked playing with the strings~

Tag Teaming Butt Sniff

Qtip knows just how to meet a dog.  This is Oscar and his first time over to the house.  Look at Qtip stand over Oscar's shoulder to dominate, and then Qtip and Shasta tag team a butt sniff.

Oscar likes it! (Look at that face in the first pic! Too Cute!!!)

How to Introduce a New Cat into Your Home

Cats are insecure, territorial and confrontational by nature. So, it can be tricky to introduce a new cat into your home.

The best way to do it is not to let the cats loose immediately.  Rather, the way to have new cats meet each other is through smell first.  An animal carrier like the one above allowed the cats to approach eah other on their own terms, and avoided a fight.

This is a friend's cat, Smoggy, who visited the house.  After Qtip climbed over the cats carrier, they got to smell each other.  When the carrier opened, the Smoggy came out and explored the house while Qtip sniffed out her kennel.

This cat play session went well--there were no fights.  But Smoggy was scared, maybe of the dog, and hid most of the time in the closet in a bedroom.

Qtip got FAT!!!

During the first two years of her life, Qtip almost never found an empty food bowl.  Well, the weight got stacked on, and Qtip became a fat cat!

Here she is spilling out of Mom's arms at Griffith Park.

Qtip is now on a diet, and has probably lost 20% of her body mass from the time this picture was taken.  She still ain't thin, but she's not tripping on her ball sack belly!

New Subdivisions Take Forests Away from Wildlife

These deer were spotting grazing next to a semi-busy road in Carmel Valley, California.  We were visiting friends who just moved into a brand new subdivision built there within the past five years.

Humans are stealing forests from wildlife.  These deer are next to the road eating because there is no where left to go.

Good luck deer!  Look at the way their ears line up in the last two pics.
