Winter = fun

I like winter. Snow is awesome. Cold is good, because I pant less. And I get to dress up in the coolest sweaters.

That is all.


Review: iRobot 530 Roomba Vacuuming Robot, White

A few months ago, the humans bought this rather strange cat toy, which they refer to as ‘Roomba’. It’s quite big for a toy, and I wasn’t too sure what to think of it at first. Curiously, it seems to have a mind of its own, navigating the room with seemingly no input from anyone else. The most entertaining part is definitely this rotating brush thingy, which¬† I love to try and catch in my paws. Sometimes, when I manage to catch the brush and stop it from moving, Roomba rewards me with a little jingle, something about ‘error #6’, and passes out. All very strange, but quite fun – until it runs out of energy and goes to sleep. My idiot sister likes to bark at Roomba – but she likes to bark at most things, and – annoyingly – at me.

  • Fun: 4/5
  • Surprise factor: 4/5
  • Value for money: 1/5 (probably one of the most expensive cat toys I have ever seen)
  • Audio: 4/5
  • Total: 3.3/5

Expensive cat toy

1 year of living with my awesome family!

1 year ago today, I joined my new family! I don’t really know what a year means, but apparently it’s very important and stuff. And fun! I’ve done a lot of really, really interesting and fun things during my first year of living with those two crazy people (and cat, for some of it). And fun! And interesting! I remember when I first joined my new family, it was very cold. And it’s very cold now too. So funny! One year ago, I was very small. I’m still quite small, but also quite fat. That’s my name. Gemuk! I’m bigger than my brother. And fatter. But not much. Look below at all the fun I had in the past year, in the form of my own personalised calendar-thingy! Yeah!

Review: Multipet Ba-Da-Beam Rotating Laser Cat Toy

Firstly, I want to get something straight: the dog has far more toys than me. Apparently, this is fair. Just one of those things in life that I just have to learn to live with I suppose.

One of the measly few toys I have is this green turret-like thing that shoots laser beams all around. I have to say, it is actually quite entertaining, at least for a little while. After 5 to 10 minutes, I tend to get quite bored. Then again, I tend to get quite bored of most things quite quickly. Especially the dog. Idiots bore me more than anything. Anyway, I digress. It’s probably a good thing I tend to get bored of the toy after a while, because it switches itself off after 15 minutes or so. It does get me running around for a bit, which I suppose is a good thing. All in all, though, I prefer catching flies, or chasing my idiot sister around the place. My biggest qualm with the laser toy is that I still haven’t figured out how to switch it on myself, and I’m probably the smartest creature in this household. I hate it when I have to rely on humans for anything, so I really only use this toy when one of the humans happens to feel like turning it on – I’m certainly never going to beg for them to do so.


  • Fun: 3/5
  • Long-term entertainment: 2/5
  • Durability: 4/5 (the dog hasn’t managed to break it yet, unlike most of my other toys)
  • Ease of use: 2/5
  • Value for money: 3/5
  • Total: 2.8/5

Tastes like plastic.

Review: Coleman Supersized Moose Trophy Dog Toy

I have many toys. Lots, but not enough. I like toys. I want more toys. One of my favourite toys is my moose. It’s big, and soft, and I like playing tug-of-war with it, and shaking it about, and generally going very insane while holding it in my mouth. I also really like humping my moose. I like toys, and I have lots, but my moose is definitely the best toy I have for humping. Nothing else is quite as humpable, not even Gila. I like toys. My moose is awesome, and it squeaks. Sometimes it squeaks when I hump it. Sometimes Gila squeaks when I attack him. I want more toys.

  • Fun: 5/5
  • Durability: 4/5
  • Value for money: I dunno?
  • Fluffiness: 4/5
  • Humpability: 6/5
  • Total: I dunno? Awesome!

    Fluffiness: 4/5

The art of appreciating the mundane

Humans are so wasteful. Or, to be more specific, the humans I’m forced to share an apartment with are so wasteful. Nearly every day, I see them throw away empty cardboard boxes, or empty paper bags. Perfectly good empty paper bags. Perfectly good, usable, empty paper bags. The other day, I decided enough was enough. If they were going to throw away this paper bag, they were going to have to throw me away with it. Needless to say, they didn’t.

Mine. All mine.

They just waited until I got hungry and walked over to my food bowl, and then threw away the bag.

What are you looking at?

The bastards. They know me too well.



Rolling on my back while being tickled is endless fun. Sometimes, Gila joins in. He doesn’t seem to really get it, though. The games he likes playing are very weird. Cats are very weird. Gila is a cat, but he looks like a dog. Sometimes, he pounces on me out of nowhere, and then chases me through the apartment, which is awesome fun. When he catches me, and I chew on his fur to return the favour, he screams like a little baby. And then comes back for more. I think he’s a bit funny in the head. I think I’m a bit funny in the head too. Apparently, all pugs are a bit funny in the head. I like being tickled. I like my bones. I have lots of bones, and I like chewing on them. Gila doesn’t have any bones. He doesn’t like bones. Cats are very weird. Gila is a cat, but he acts like a dog. A weird dog. He has lots of strange toys that smell like the stuff that cat stuff smells like. The smell makes him go all funny in the head. I don’t need that smell to go funny in the head. Apparently, I was born this way.
