Have You Ever Heard of Catamole?

Posted by Francesca

We Frenchies often catch sight of the cats sleeping in the most unusual places and they seem to take great liberty in choosing those spaces.  We've come to accept that we just never know where we'll find one of those fur balls all curled up and fast asleep.

Look at Tang all curled up in Martha's molcajete - the bowl, or mortor, she makes guacamole in!

I have to admit, she looks very peaceful sleeping like that.  Did you know that this molcajete is carved from volcanic rock?

Franny, have you ever tried sleeping in a bowl?  It looks like it could be comfortable.

Oops!  I think I woke her up.  I can see those alarming orange eyes.

Yoo-hoo!  Tang!  Why are you asleep in Martha's molcajete?  Were you dreaming of guacamole?

We're missing Martha's tejolote, the pestle, for grinding in the molcajete.  I'll just go and fetch it.  I have a craving for a little catamole right about now.

  • This is hilarious Franny. a tejolote to grind in the molcajete for some catamole. I would love to have a taste of catamole too. If only I could catch one of the neighbour's cat but they are much bigger than me.

  • Hello girls,
    That Tang is so cute. I think I like Tang cause the face is pushed in sort of like a chow. That bowl looked like it would be nice and cool. Do they come in chow size? Martha should sell them at Pet Smart in with her bedding items. hehehehehehehe
    Well gang, I thought today would be another great day for some deck time. So I go running out onto the deck and waaaaaa, deck is all wet. It rained. Wet feet, wet feet. Ewwwwwwwww. Back in the house quickly. Going back to bed. Will check in later.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Good morning ladies,
    Oh, Tang, don't be afraid of the girls. They can do many tasks around the house, but they'd never hurt you.
    Hey, Kitty, do you sleep in any bowls?
    Lynn, we didn't know much about mange either. I'll let you know more after I see Dr Becky. I sure don't look good. What was red and sore is now drying up. It's itchy! I'm taking my pills 'cause they help be relax & sleep.
    Will check in later to read what everybody is up to.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Hello Ladies & Glue Squad Buddies,
    It is a rainy day here in Colorado and snow in the mountains. Yahoo!!!!!

    Girls, this catamole tease sounds pretty fun. Tang just doesn't understand Frenchie humor does she? How are the kitties doing? We need updates girls, as I bet they are growing fast. Rebel, I hope your shots arrive at Dr. Becky's. I am sure that will help lots too. Abby, thanks for the inquiry on my cards.I told Laura to send you my e-mail and we can girl talk. Dudley, it has been smokey here so this rain will be nice. Looking forward to hearing of your adventures today. Cora Belle and Rebel, just have "cc" time and eat Warrior Prince Biscuits.
    Hugs & smiles,
    Lynn

  • Haha! That's more like it, F&S!

  • F & S

    Those fur balls are gross sleeping in bowls. There must be cat hair all over the counter - my mom wouldn't like that one bit.

    Maddox why is it that we hate to touch a wet deck? Everyone in my house feels the same way - wet paws YUK.

    Mom left again at 6 this morning this is really starting to get on my nerves. Is it Saturday yet???

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Let me see now, catamole; just how many things could we make from cats. On second thought we better not go there. Mommy is still feeding that little cat. It still runs from me when I go into the back yard. It must remember the ‘great chase’ we had. It was great for me but I don’t think it was too great for it. Cat’s are funny that way you know. Let me see what I can do today. Got it! Take another nap, that should do it.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • You KNOW I'm going to say it!!! Yukky poo spitting cat hairs out of my mouth...ya Zoe I agree! But for sure Tang looks cute...what a smooshy-mooshy face... muah! ;-)

    =^. .^= Rebel, that is an absolute NO-NO in this house, the ONLY furniture I'm allowed on, besides a couple of chairs is the computer table and the bed stand dressers...I "won't even try" to go anywhere else! J.D. pruuurrs to you!

    have a great day everyone!
    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, Once again I love seeing you beautiful girls in the kitchen and how fun to see beautiful Empress Tang in Martha's molcajete sleeping! Sure looked like she was happy until you two girls woke her up! What the heck is catamole anyway?! You sure have fun, don't you girls?! How nice to hear from 7 of you buddies this morning and you all wrote nice comments! Will check back later for the rest of you buddies! Hope you all have a great day! It's foggy here every morning and sunny in the afternoon-sort of changing to fall! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hello Empress Tang, your esteemed highness, Lynn, Maddox, Beautiful Kitty, Delia,Rebel, F and S, and my buddies-
    No worries, Empress Tang, I am sure francesca and Sharkey were just teasing you the way brothers and sisters do in the same home. It looked like a nice place to sleep but our hairs shed all over....
    Corabelle, hope you get lots of rest and some maple bars today. Rebel, get better real soon and rid of that itchy mange so you can have fun fall adventures. Hello to Sparkle, you must be tiny to be smaller than a cat. Zoe, its not saturday yet but the middle of the week so that's good. Kirby, its rainy here today so nice nap weather. Hugs to Dudley and Sonya today. Delia and Kitty, hope you are enjoying some feline cuddle time! Lynn, mom is looking forward to some girl talk with you! Mom is doing research on victorian halloween pictures because she was asked to paint jack o lanterns on the animal hospital window! She is going to read next to me upstairs. Abby is cuddlying with her gran papa so I am zipping off this note and was so HAPPY to see gorgeous Empress Tang! Maddox, keep dry and I will contemplate Autumn's changing leaf hues in your honor. Love and Peace to all, James Byron Dean the persian

  • I love it!

    Tang has some nerve, huh!

    What's next? She'll be lounging in the roaster! :)

  • ..I like kitties..they do such weird things..we don't have any indoor kitties anymore..just the wild feral guys and they are a handful..I gave up trying to chase them..they just look at me now and go on their way..they know I can't run anymore..but the older cats pretend to run from me to make me feel important...it feels like fall..I must get outdoors and get some fresh air and plan the rest of my day.eveybody have a good day..love, Cora-Belle p.s. Lucinda got my stupid cashmere home-made vest out..thought she lost that thing! Yuk!!

  • Hi Girls & Glue Squad, I's been a few days since I posted; I must speak to Mom about my computer time once again. Everyone is going to think I'm in timeout again, NOT. We just can't seem to coordinate our schedules. Tang sure looks pretty comfy sitting up there catching a few zzzz's. Bet she was still keeping a eye open on you. Everyone sounds like they have been very busy. Maddox, I DO enjoy the cooler weather and have been spending quite a bit of time outside. Rebel, hope you are feeling better, let the meds do their job and you will be back to normal in no time. Cora-Belle, that was so nice of you to give the Chiweenies presents to remember you by. I'm sure they won't forget you.

    Hi Lynn & Delia and to all my buddies - got to run, think Mom needs her computer now.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow

  • Mmm. That catamole looked tasty to me, not gonna lie. Mom does not like when Willa the Cat gets up on counters or the eating table, otherwise she can go wherever she wants. Today she went out to sun herself on the upstairs porch and then went down the tree and went walkabout for a little bit. She came back all satisfied with herself. I think she met up with Orange Cat, who is a stray that lives under the front porch. Mom has tried to catch Orange Cat a few times, but I can tell you that THAT is not going to happen; Orange Cat did not get to where she is by being dumb. I admire her, and I think it's nice that Willa went to visit her, but I'm glad Willa came back, too. Otherwise I'd have no one to chase!
