This week’s Phantom Phriday is a sleepy one. Earlier today, I noticed the cats weren’t buzzing around the living room like they normally do, so I went back to my room to find Phantom, Sogo, Aya, and Rio all lazing around.
So that left Omi to be the missing one. A short time later, I heard some rustling upstairs in Katie’s room. Sure enough, it was Omi. All 5 now accounted for! He rushed downstairs and jumped up on the table for pets.
I think this is the first time in a long time that I’ve gotten all the cats featured in a Phantom Phriday! Happy Friday to all!
Happy Friday! This week is an update on Sogo. The little calico is settling in more and more every day and, for the most part, gets along with the other four. Aya seems to be the only one that she’s not that fond of, but Aya takes longer to warm up to being around others. Even so, they get along okay and I think they’ll be fine around each other in time.
Sogo seems to be most fond of Rio, our older calico. Rio pretty much mothered her when we first took Sogo in, so I think they formed a bond because of that.
As for us, Sogo seems to have claimed us as her humans. She’s quite an affectionate little one and I’m happy we were able to give her a home.
This week’s volume is cutting it close, but we managed to get it in before midnight! Tonight we are preparing to make our own cat food so that the cat crew can start their raw diets. They’re not handling the smell of raw chicken and not being able to eat it yet too well.
“What are you doing, human? Why does it smell good?”
“Hand over the chicken and I wont shred your face in your sleep.”
Our first Phantom Phriday of the year features one of Phantom’s greatest foes – the mandarin. Phantom hates it’s citrus-y goodness with a passion and goes to great lengths to avoid it, usually by backing far away from it and dashing off to his nearest safe spot.
“That smell offends my senses, minion.”
“I knew it was you..”
“Wait, minion. Why on earth are you moving it closer? Get that away from me!”
“..Bring that any closer to me and I’ll pee on everything you love.”
There’s still a bit of 2015 left to go for me, but many of my friends are already in 2016, so happy new year!
2015 has been a difficult year for me and those around me, so here’s hoping the new year will be much better for everyone. I’m sure most have heard about the flooding going on here in Missouri. I live quite close to the affected areas, but luckily we live on higher ground, so we’re fine. My roommate went out on Wednesday morning to see the rising waters and take a few pictures and you can view them here – Historic Flooding in Valley Park, MO.
Ending my last post of the year with an update on the little calico (pictured above) from the previous post. I’ve named her Sogo and she’s doing much better now. She seems to be fitting in well with the others, though she’s still cautious around them at times. She seems to be happy here and that makes me happy.
This week’s Phantom Phriday is cutting it a little close to being out of Friday, so here’s a quick post featuring Aya and Rio!
Aya is really starting to take after Rio. She copies Rio if she sees her doing something, like flopping over like this.
She’s also started to bring Rio toys that Rio loves playing with (milk rings and brightly coloured strings), which makes her look more like Rio’s servant. I’m sure Rio thinks of her as that anyway, haha.
I took some footage of the two playing around, so enjoy and happy Friday! (what’s left of it anyway..!)
