Good Morning!!! Welcome to the final summer class of Yoga. Thank you all for joining me these last few weeks. It seems some of you have really taken yoga to heart, and are getting in tune with your bodies.

Since we have all practiced and improved, today we will have a double session. Not to worry, I believe this will be very relaxing.

Hey!!! Monty Q! Get away from that pig....it belongs to Miles.

Deep breath.......



Aaaaahhhhh, very relaxing. And notice how the moves are dedicated to my favorite rock artists!

Hey!!! Monty Q! I warned you! Stay away from the pig.

Deep breath.

I dedicated these moves to some of my favorite baseball players in honor of the All American Favorite Passtime.

And for refreshments we have lobster

And Tuna
Oooooohhhhh! A fountain of oil from the tuna can
And a whole pig just for Miles.

Enjoy everyone.

I will not be able to post much this next week. But I will be back for the Presidential debates. I am looking forward to addressing the most pressing issues facing this country.

(Monty Q! I told you stay away from Miles' pig!)

Happy yoga everyone!

Luv,
Skittles, The Huntress

Sunday Meme



Marie, The Defender tagged me for a meme. I'm supposed to tell a proverb. I have lots a proverbs!

My pet human has one: "If all the horses were the same, it wouldn't be a race."

Here is mine. I think it's from something called the Sermon on the Mount.

"Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape."



Now for something completely different, I am tagging two humans this time.

I tag the Lutheran Surrealist, who considering his current postings, most likely will come up with a proverb about hell fire and damnation. (just kidding!)

I also tag Helen.

Good Times at Grandma's


Just one more photo of me in grandma's garden.

Forgiveness Friday


Yeah!!! I'm Forgiven!!!!

My grandma sent me an email today. She said:


"You certainly saved me from the rat in the garage. It has never returned. The crickets are jumping in the yard at night.YUK! If you were here your hips would be to wide for the gate. Keep up the yoga, you look great!"

Grandma

She also said that I was never really in "the dog house" with her. Weird, what would that be like? And I'm not sure I like the comment about my hips. I weigh only 7 lbs, so how could I have big hips?


P.S. Next Tuesday will be the last summer Yoga class. I will be too busy in August with the upcoming presidential debates to hold class.

As such, next Tuesday will be a blow out. Reservations are required!

Thursday Thirteen


THIRTEEN THINGS I LIKED ABOUT STAYING AT THE HOME OF THE MOTHER OF MY PET HUMAN


1. Grandma and I would have morning conversations in the kitchen.
2. Her house is really very comfortable, except there is the one room I wasn't allowed in.
3. Her patio is especially nice. Every day around 4:00 pm, I would take an afternoon siesta there.
4. The grass in her yard
5. The lizards
6. The grasshoppers
7. The bunnies!!!!!
8. She lives in a very nice quiet neighborhood without a lot of outdoor kitties. (The whole place was mine!)
9. She protected me if there was a coyote alert.
10.She took very good care of me when my pet human was away.
11. I sat in her lap every evening to watch Larry King and Anderson Cooper, and we would cuddle.
12.Her herb garden
13. My grandma herself!


Am I back in your good graces, grandma????? Remember the time I chased the rat out of your garage?

Love,

Skittles, The Huntress

Yoga Tuesday

Good Morning Everyone!

Today our yoga lesson is light because of Summer. Here we go:




Yes, let's relax and enjoy some refreshments.


Mea Culpa Monday















I am so embarrassed! The mother of my pet human called me. She was sooooooo upset!!!!

She read my answers to the last meme, and how I had referred to living at her home in the OC as "OK."

Boy, did I get an earful!

That was a very bad choice of words. I truly loved being at her home. Here is a photo of me sleeping on her nice wool blanket. She spoiled me rotten! Every morning she and I would have our conversation time, while we waited for my pet human to wake up. And her garden had the most wonderful selection of lizards, grasshoppers and bunnies! She even protected me when there was a coyote alert in the neighborhood.

I do miss the mother of my pet human! I'm sorry!

Luv,

I am only 4 years old, so I did not exist.

2. What were you doing 1 year ago?

Oh, that's fun!!! My Pet Human and I were coming home from Las Vegas to beautiful San Diego. But we were looking for a permanent home in SD, so we were staying with my pet human at her mom's house in "The OC" of famous TV popularity. The OC is very uptight, pretentious, and materialistic. But I like the garden of the mother of my pet human, so it was an ok time.

3. 5 Snacks you enjoy:

lizards, beetles, quail, chipmunks, finches, and POINT LOMA PARROTS! (well I wish I could eat a POINT LOMA PARROT!)

Yoga on the Dirty Bed

Good Morning Everyone!!!!!

Welcome to Yoga Tuesday, and I'm in a mood to play a practical joke on my pet human!




She stripped the bedspread and washed it (again!) just 2 days ago. But this is how it looks today! Won't she be surprised that I put these photos on the internet.

She is sooooooo fussy sometimes. I mean, what's with a little dirt and hair anyway??


OK, everyone.......deep breath......hold........hold......exhale slowly through your nose.


We'll have a lovely Coq au Vin and a nice Napa Shiraz (partly to help calm the pet human down!!)

Answers From The Candidate I


First, thank you to Sly, Karl, and Daisy for submitting questions. Here are my answers:

Karl at Cat Realm asked: What made you enter the race?

Karl, what a fabulous question!

The primary reason for entering this particular presidential race is to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

As you may know, I have a military background, as I was born on the Naval Base at Port Hueneme, California. (it's pronounced why-knee-me). I saw first hand the sacrifices our soldiers and sailors make for our country and it's citizens. Even though Bush is a hawk, he has stretched and weakened our military overall. The Constitution states one of the main purposes of our federal government is to protect the nation. We need a strong military.

The Global War on Terrorism has failed. Global acts of terrorism have increased since 9-11, according to a Rand report. Time to bring the troops home, strengthen them, and protect the country. We did not need a separate federal agency, Homeland Security, to do this. Our troops are our homeland security.


Daisy asks: If elected, do you think you will have time for yoga classes?

YES!

Yoga is a key component of my daily routine. As you may recall from my biography, I was very aggressive and anti-social after spending my childhood abandoned and fending for myself. My pet human was very wise to teach me this essential relaxation technique. Without it, and her continuous love and support, I may still be suffering from feline PTSD, and unable to share my visions with America and the world.

I will continue with Tuesday yoga classes. However, since being president surely will be more than a full time job, I may have to drop Monty Monday or Thursday Thirteen.


Sly asks: how did you get so beautiful? (Daisy and Karl want to know too)

Oh, Sly!!! (blush, blush)

My beautiful tabby markings, especially my spotty tummy, come from my genes. These are inherited traits.

I do work hard at staying healthy. I exercise, especially yoga. I supplement my diet with natural foods, such as lizards, beetles, grasshoppers, and an occasional finch. (I keep trying to get one of the Point Loma parrots.....) I also ensure my pet human brushes my coat every day to keep it soft and shiny.


Thank you all for your questions! I look forward to answering more.

LOL: Means Location of Lizard

Dixon Hill here to assist you ma'am.

I understand Data and LaForge were unable to locate the lizard body, which is why you have called me in.

I have conducted a thorough search of the premises, and I have interviewed Skittles herself. The body is nowhere to be found!





This can mean only one thing.....Skittles ATE the lizard!

Therefore, Dragonheart has won for guessing the lizard was in her stomach. Monty Q receives an honorable mention for suggesting the litter box. I understand what the giant tabby was implying, but unfortunately Skittles does not have a litter box. She uses the great outdoors.

Next time, Mr. Data, please remain as a sidekick. Don't go off on your own as Holmes.

Good morning, everyone! What a beautiful day! I am so happy to be here, alive, and in San Diego! Life is good!

WOWIE!!! Have we been to a few parties lately? How many trips to the buffet at Sadie, Speedy, and Scout's did YOU make????? Be honest now.

So today's class will focus on some relaxing exercise that will help you trim the tummie.

Deep breath.....hold.....hold.....hold, exhale through your mouth.














Snacks today are light. Tuna, the best way......

A Clue!


My Dear Watson,

I have uncovered a most auspicious clue in our search to find the lizard body. As WW told us, she found the second piece of lizard tail in the front spare bedroom. This is how I found the bed skirt on the bed.













Quick, Watson, let us slide the bed aside on it's casters to find the body!






NOTHING!











Foiled again, Watson. Time to leave the holodeck and head to 10 Forward while we contemplate the crafty Skittles, and plan our next move.

Friday, July 06, 2007

Aaaaaahhhh! Gwass-hoppa

If I'm not bringing in lizards,








it's grasshoppers! And it's a spotty grasshopper, just for Spotty Sunday!!!!!














Thursday, July 05, 2007

My Dear Watson


My Dear Watson,

As you know, I have been called in by WW, aka Skittles' Pet Human, to determine the physical location of a certain lizard body, or perhaps two lizard bodies.

One tail was found in the front hallway. Another part to a tail was found in the front bedroom.

Let us begin searching the house for additional clues. In the meantime, I have heard rumors of a cat blogosphere, in which felines around the world share their secrets with one another. I will first check the internet, and search the felicitous feline websites to determine if Skittles has in fact already given away the location of the body/bodies.

I understand there is a prize to the cat who guesses the location/s. Perhaps they will post their guesses here. Or perhaps not.....I suppose they are loyal to their own kind!

We'll get to the bottom of this mystery! Really, how smart can a "formerly feral" feline possibly be!

Yoga Winner



Thank you all for participating in last Tuesday's yoga class. Next week will be more intensive, especially since my pet human is not as busy with the horsie, Ballou.

Update: Ballou is in an indoor stall, with rubber mats, and no sand to get into his digestive tract. He is doing better. Thanks to all who sent their prayers.

Now, I offered a prize to the most creative yoga name. Daisy came up with a cute name: Warrior in the Bushes. It was a tough decision. But Zippy, Sadie, and Speedy win with:


Hmmm, we like da half monty wif a twist and da turkey.

I think this would also make a good sandwich. See you next Tuesday!

Thursday Thirteen



Thirteen Things I dislike about this "dog."

1. It takes my favorite portrait place on the chair underneath the African Art.
2. It doesn't bark or growl, so I don't know where it is.
3. It's blond.
4. It doesn't smell.
5. It looks like it's sneering at me.
6. What's it doing in the hallway?????
7. Could it help me protect the house???? NOT!
8. My pet human likes to hug it while watching TV......aaaaaggghhhh! what about me?
9. I never know where I will find it.
10. It's fur doesn't shed
11. It doesn't need to be brushed.
12. It doesn't have fleas (my pet human says I have to accept the flea stuff on my neck.)
13. It's just cuteness, cuteness, cuteness............ugh...makes me sick.

Tomorrow I will start posting more about my political beliefs.

Yoga Tuesday

Welcome back for our third yoga class. Are you feeling a little more limber? Are you feeling a little more at peace and harmony with the world?

Today's class will be brief, because I have a special surprise! In honor of Independence Day, I am throwing a party for all my yoga students! Yeah!!

Here we go with class.....hehehehehe....I made my pet human chase me all around the house and yard to get good photos!

You will also notice, I didn't include any position names. I thought it would be fun to make up names. You can pick your favorite position and give it a name. Most creative name wins a prize!





Oh, I feel so relaxed!

Now lets go to the barbecue patio and have some grilled turkey


and some grilled scallops and shrimp


and surprise! for desert we have a gelato bar!!!! All your favorite flavors!


Let's sit back on the front patio and watch the fireworks from Seaworld.



God Bless America! Keep Our Troops Safe!

The Horse Whisperer

My pet human went to the ranch this weekend, and she is very sad. Ballou (pronounced by-you), a very handsome and friendly buckskin, is very ill.

Ballou used to be the personal horse of Senor Sandoval at Rancho El Topo, in the Sierra Juarez mountains of Baja. Senor Sandoval was a true horse whisperer, and a true gentleman. He passed away almost two years ago, and Rancho El Topo has not been the same since. My pet human and her friends loved Senor Sandoval very much, and they miss him.

Now Ballou is very ill. He has colic, and after 1 month of treatment is worse. My pet human helped walk him until late last night. The vet could not help much.

It may be unusual for me to ask the cat blogosphere to pray for the recovery of a horsie, but I sure would appreciate it, on behalf of my pet human and Ballou.

Luv,

Skittles, The Huntress

Yoga Tuesday

Welcome back for our third yoga class. Are you feeling a little more limber? Are you feeling a little more at peace and harmony with the world?

Today's class will be brief, because I have a special surprise! In honor of Independence Day, I am throwing a party for all my yoga students! Yeah!!

Here we go with class.....hehehehehe....I made my pet human chase me all around the house and yard to get good photos!

You will also notice, I didn't include any position names. I thought it would be fun to make up names. You can pick your favorite position and give it a name. Most creative name wins a prize!





Oh, I feel so relaxed!

Now lets go to the barbecue patio and have some grilled turkey


and some grilled scallops and shrimp


and surprise! for desert we have a gelato bar!!!! All your favorite flavors!


Let's sit back on the front patio and watch the fireworks from Seaworld.



God Bless America! Keep Our Troops Safe!

The Horse Whisperer

My pet human went to the ranch this weekend, and she is very sad. Ballou (pronounced by-you), a very handsome and friendly buckskin, is very ill.

Ballou used to be the personal horse of Senor Sandoval at Rancho El Topo, in the Sierra Juarez mountains of Baja. Senor Sandoval was a true horse whisperer, and a true gentleman. He passed away almost two years ago, and Rancho El Topo has not been the same since. My pet human and her friends loved Senor Sandoval very much, and they miss him.

Now Ballou is very ill. He has colic, and after 1 month of treatment is worse. My pet human helped walk him until late last night. The vet could not help much.

It may be unusual for me to ask the cat blogosphere to pray for the recovery of a horsie, but I sure would appreciate it, on behalf of my pet human and Ballou.

Luv,
