Phantom Phriday Vol. 20

A bit late with today’s Phantom Phriday, but it’s still Friday, so on with the show!

Today we’re featuring Rio…Purrincess Rio. The once tiny calico is now large and in charge of the nekotachi and, of course, her peasants.

“I don’t know what you’re doing, peasant, but I don’t trust it.”


‘Rio has presented her belly. You know what to do.”


“What are you looking at, peasant? You don’t see Rio. Rio’s not spying on you or anything.”

Happy Friday! (what’s left of it, anyway!)

Phantom Phriday Vol. 18

Welcome to the return of Phantom’s corner! His Greyness has been doing well over his long time off, still ornery as ever. He’s been waiting somewhat patiently for me to pick up my blog again, so without further delay..

“That’s enough chatter, minion. On with the show!”

Today, we’re going to check in on a moment in the day of Aya. Aya has decided to give the peasant some help in keeping her other peasant alive (in game, of course!).

“Peasant, what is this your doing?”

“You know what you’re not doing that you could be doing?”

“Petting Aya, that’s what!”

That’s all for today! Join us again next Friday!

Until then…

“Sogo sees you with her eyes, peasant.”

Phantom Phriday Vol. 16


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!


Phantom Phriday Vol. 15


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.

Phantom Phriday Vol. 14


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?”



“Is that…chicken?”


“Hand over the chicken and I wont shred your face in your sleep.”

2016 Start


Happy New Year!
I hope everyone’s start to 2016 was a good one. I spent most of the first resting and reading, but we did go out for a couple of hours to survey the flooding in Valley Park. The waters had gone down some, but, as you can see in the photos below, there’s still quite a bit under water.

The rest of my evening was spent snuggling up with this cute kitty below.

Goodbye 2015

Taken by Katie

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.
