We left this cute umbrella straw in a cup on the kitchen counter. We return later, and the straw is missing. A while later, Rosalina comes over with the straw in her mouth, the umbrella shredded, quite proud of her work. The picture also shows a cute inflatable flamingo, which she later popped. We managed to fix it with glue, but the straw couldn’t be saved.
I haven’t talked about my Siamese cat sisters, Rosalina and Carmelita, all that much lately, so I thought I would, once again, recount a few things about my precious, little angels. Because you can never talk too much about your pets. To start, both cats like sitting on Mother Duck’s lap. Usually, Carmelita sits on her lap during the first half of the day, and Rosalina sits on her lap in the evenings. I have no idea why they won’t sit on me during the day time, but…Continue reading Cat Naps in People Laps
Thanksgiving was last week, and though my post is a tad late, getting a post published the day after the holiday it’s about isn’t too easy. So I didn’t. Ahem, I just thought I’d write a little bit about how our Thanksgiving went, along with a little gift we got for our lovely Siamese cats, Rosalina and Carmelita.Continue reading Spatchcocked Turkey and Cat Towers
I’m not sure when I last talked about “the beans” (AKA our Siamese kitty sisters Rosalina and Carmelita), but any day not spent discussing adorable kittens is one day too many. (They are no longer technically kittens, but in my mind, they will be babies forever.) Today, I wanted to write about how cooperative our little kitties have become with each other.Continue reading Carmelita and Rosalina Learn to Share
It is often said that Siamese cats are among the more intelligent cat breeds. Nevertheless, as sweet and wonderful as Rosie and Carmelita can be, they don’t always seem like the brightest kitties in the world. I don’t know about you, but repeatedly getting on my kitchen counter and stealing bits of rubbish straight from the trash can doesn’t exactly scream “intelligence!” It wasn’t so very long ago, however, that Carmelita surprised me with a rare display of cunning. Or maybe it was just my imagination… Continue reading How Smart Are My Siamese: A Case Study
Seeing as our two Siamese kitten sisters, Rosalina and Carmelita, have proven to be an endless source of entertainment and silliness, I thought I’d write about another goofy story. Since we’re currently living in a rental, we have a huge pile of boxes overtaking the dining area. (Who uses dining rooms anyway when you can eat dinner on the couch in front of the TV…?) And our cats love chewing on cardboard, so we have a blanket on two of the boxes to prevent our feisty felines from tugging on a few bits of cardboard that have become loose. This story revolves around the fact that Rosie enjoys napping on this blanket and Carmelita’s obsession with going under blankets. Continue reading A Surprise from Beneath the Blanket: A Kitty Story
Good day, everyone! I always like to write about interesting things that have happened, both for sharing with you all and for myself to read about years down the road. And before I forget, I’d like to share a few silly stories about one of our two Siamese kittens, Carmelita. Rosalina, being the friendlier of the two, gets a lot of attention, and sometimes it’s good to focus especially on our dear Charmin’ Carmen. Continue reading Three Random Tails About Carmelita
Hope everyone’s doing well. Now that we’re several weeks into this COVID-19 thing, I can’t get over how quickly and unexpectedly life can change. One moment, our top goal in life is to find a new home so we can move out of our rental. The next, we’re discouraged from even leaving the house, let alone the whole state, and our top struggle is finding toilet paper rather than a new home. Continue reading Life Update: Empty Grocery Stores and Cuddly Kitties
G’day, everyone, just thought I’d write a little update concerning our two new kittens, Rosalina and Carmelita. Both kittens had several vet visits recently to finish their vaccines and to take care of a little tapeworm issue, but other than that, they’ve been quite happy and healthy and have grown a bit, too! Carmelita was a whopping six pounds when last we checked, while tiny Rosalina, probably the runt, was only three or four (I forget…or she gained a pound between vet appointments). Continue reading Over a Month with Carmelita and Rosalina
I am happy to introduce you all to the two newest felines to be adopted into the Duck’s household. Named after two gaming ladies (Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy and Carmelita from Sly Cooper), these two 9-week-old kitten sisters (predicted birthday June 23…though the papers say May 23…so are they actually three months old…? I’m so confused!!!) are Lynx Point Siamese, which basically means they’re a mix of Siamese and tabby cats. Carmelita (on the left in the banner) is the bigger, more beige one, while Rosalina (on the right) is the smaller, whiter one. Continue reading Introducing Carmelita and Rosalina!
