Oscar and friends

Location: Melbourne, Australia

I am the youngest of my family. I was adopted by my Mum and Dad who I love very much (even though I bite them). I like to do nothing and everything (all at once). I have Cat-itude and I wanted this blog to tell you all what I think about everything. So listen up.

We got tagged!

Riley the dog (yeah I know he is a D O G but he is a nice one) tagged us as did Fat Eric (but we is only doing one post back.)

5 Weird Things about Me and my humans!

The player of this game starts with "5 weird things/habits about yourself." In the end you need to choose 5 furries to be tagged and list their names. The furries who get tagged need to write a blog about their 5 weird things/habits and their humans 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

Here are the weird things about me:

1. I like to drink from a dripping tap but never lap at the water coming out of the tap - instead I like to stick my head right in and let it run off my head - then I lick that water.
2. I have never had any milk. Mum tried me with kitten milk when I was first adopted but I wouldn't touch it.
3. I love to see what you are doing or eating, but I won't eat from your fingers.
4. When someone rings the doorbell, I growl, then I run and hide.
5. Sometimes i mistake Mum for my girlfriend and try to .... um... have my way with her arm or leg (*total embarrasement telling you that one).

Here are the weird things about my beans:

1. My parents breed tropical fish and love fishing but my Mum is soooo allergic to fish that if she actually eats any, she ends up in hop-ital.
2. Mum and Dad call us fluffies, furries and finnies their kids, probably because they are having so much trouble having their own.
3. My Dad works weird hours, so when he is on nightshift, we can sleep with Mum all night and then sleep with Dad all day. They are home with us a lot, which we love.
4. My Mum does lots of craft things - she is always knitting, sewing or stitching.
5. My Dad rides a Motorbike. He looks really funny with all his protective gear on, but Mum says it is to protect him so that we have Dad with us forever.

I am not going to tag anyone, but if you want to do this on your blog, let me know so I can check out your answers as well.

A post at last

Hey guys, hope you have all been okay. Mum hasn't felt like posting for me lately so I had to store up all my pictures until she was ready. It is kinda annoying but I am trying to understand like a good kitty.

Mum often says to me "not sure what funny stuff you are made of Oscar, but you sure are crazy at times". So Dad flipped me over and read the ingredients. Who would have known I would have that much sugar in me? Maybe that is what makes me so crazy at times. ??

Everyone is fine. Molly is going through a rebellious stage at the moment. She likes to sit by Dad's bike and pretend she is a bikers chick. She kinda lazes around the bike trying to look mean and waits for the other kitties to notice her. She has even talked about getting a leather jacket - I think she would look pretty silly don't you?

I have been kicking back a lot and just relaxing. Mum caught me snuggled up in bed with Dad yesterday.

It was so warm and cozy. I loved it........

Until Mum started with the camera. Mum! Can you get that camera out of my face!

Mum said she is sorry she didn't get the tagged things done yet - she will do them - better late than never I guess.

Now let me go back to sleep

product reviews

Thanks guys for your comments about my Mum and Dad. They are feeling a little bit better. Mum still is not well, and has had lots of problems with dizziness. But she will be okay. She is still home re-coop-erating. I like having her home a lot. Unfortunately this is the third time they have been through this; Mum said it gets harder every time. I wish I could help them. She still crys a lot, but Dad has been looking after her and between us we keep Mum busy so her mind isn't on her sadness. Mum said it is just going to take time for her to cope better - when the pain is not so fresh. I hope she gets happier soon. I don't like seeing her sad.

I thought, since the cat was out of the bag (excuse the pun) about Mum and Dad's business, I might start doing a few product reviews.

Here is my first review - it is about Fluroscent plastic balls. They are heaps of fun. They are light so when I bat them, they fly right across the room. They have two little pellets inside them that make the ball rattle and wobble when it moves - cool as. They don't stand up too well when Dad stands on them though. Then he yells at me for leaving my toys in the hallway - sorry Dad. Mum and Dad sell these for just A$0.85 cents each - Cool - that means beans can buy a lot for their fluffies.This is my star pick. It is a Stripey legged dangly! It has both a suction cup that you can suction it to glass or if you want, you can slip the body of the kitty over a door knob. I love the stripey legs - and it has bells on each of the feet. I wanted to play with this one more but Mum said it was a shop item, and not for me. They come in black, Blue and Pink (why would I want a pink one?). Mum and Dad sell these for A$3.50 each and they practically walk out the door by themselves. This is definately my favorite toy at the moment.

Mum - can you get the toys out again so I can play with them? I know they are shop samples that you were photographing, but I hadn't finished reviewing them - and my reviews might take a while, so just leave them here on my couch. Mum? Mum - come back.....
