Tricky Kitty Reaches for the Stars!

I wish I could escape into Charlie’s head as he sniffs Tricky Kitty!

Charlie says: Crazy cat lady is not making sense.

Oh but I am!

On the 14th Dec, lovely Janice Horton’s book “Reach for the Stars” is launched and to celebrate she’s holding a “where would you wish to escape to” PARTY! Celebrations start here!

And Tricky Kitty?

A fiendish trick played on me by gorgeous Janet Sumner Johnson! She held a trick or treat party and Charlie won the trick! Yay! Thank you lovely Janet! There was an extra pack of yummy jelly beans too but I ate them. Ahem.

Dashing through the snow!

Welcome back, Jennifer! You hadn't written in almost a week, right? Missed your cute posts. Congratulations to Charlie on winning his tricky kitty!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Perfect gift for you two!
I don't think you're a crazy cat lady...

Brian said...

Give it a bitey Charlie, maybe it tastes good!

We can only hope that Charlie got to play with the jelly beans first!

Such a cute kitty. :3

Brigid said...

Charlie is looking so curious.
Have a great week:)

Hi Old Kitty .. lucky both of you I reckon .. jelly beans and Charlie's Tricky Kitty - great thought by Janet.

Dashing through the snow? Not down here .. the sun is out and the full moon (nearly) set in the western sky this morning .. lovely site to see .. cheers Hilary

Lynda R Young said...

lol at the Tricky Kitty. I think my hubby owns a moose like that. So amusing.

Madeleine said...

Congrats Charlie. What a great party. Congrats too to Janice Horton and good luck.

Dave King said...

Intriguing!

Ciara said...

We went to visit kittens this last weekend. We are on the fence at the moment. They were so adorable at only three weeks old.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Okay, but what does Tricky Kitty do? LOL. Congrats to you and Charlie for winning the trick!

Counting down now...We hope you have time off over the holidays, Jennifer. The bonus to working at a North American university is that they're closed between Christmas and New Years. Some even get two weeks off! Not sure what it's like for you, but hope you'll have a great break.

P.S. I mailed off a card to you a week ago now, just a day before I got yours--thank you so much!

Janet Johnson said...

Fiendish trick indeed! Just wish I could pull tricky kitty's tail. Just once. ;) if I were Charlie, I'd be confused too!

Hilary said...

I always wish I could know what was on Alex's mind

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oooh Janice's "party" sounds fun!

Deborah said...

Charlie, nice gift!!!! I love to win prizes :) If only I can win the lottery!!
xxoo

I cannot give my cats anything with catnip. They go completely wild and crazy. I actually fear for their little hearts! They not only destroy the catnip toy, but then try to eat the carpet/it/anything that touched it.

Thanks for letting me know about Janice's book!

Creepy Query Girl said...

cute!! Congrats Charlie:)

Theresa Milstein said...

Congrats on your win. Does Charlie like the tricky kitty out of the package?

Are you really dashing through the snow? This morning, it was cold enough to snow. Luckily, it was sunny and the large moon shone on my ride to work. It was striking.

Talli Roland said...

Tricky Kitty? Haha! Love the name.

Clarissa Draper said...

What a cool toy--tricky kitty! Charlie looks intrigued. I won't tell him you ate all the Jelly Beans.

Rene said...

We have one of those kitties!

Lydia Kang said...

He looks like he can't wait to play with it!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Charlie - how mean is Jenn eating your jelly beans!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Hart Johnson said...

I bet if you let him try long enough, Charlie can get in there... Thanks for the heads up!

Marg said...

Oh Charlie, that does look like a fun toy. You need to try it out. We want to see what it does. Hope you have a great week. Take care.

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Tricky Kitty sounds a good name for you! Haha!!

Tell Charlie he's very photogenic :)

My cat is so jealous of your cat. And I won't tell my cat yours is prettier.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Charlie looks like he can't wait for you to opening that packaging.

Enjoy, Charlie!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Watcha tinkin about Charlie? You look a wittle confused!

Jemi Fraser said...

That's awesome! Although Charlie looks a little confused! :)

HubbleSpacePaws said...

Lucky, lucky Charlie!! And thanks for the link - I'm looking forward to the book... uh, make that books. I splurged!

I hope Charlie gets some other goodies for Christmas. I had to give Peaches her Christmas present early. She was mad at me when I went away for Thanksgiving...

LTM said...

omg--tricky kitty. LOL! I love that toy. The cat that poops jelly beans. I'm sure Charlie's stumped by that one. :D <3

Susan Fields said...

Yay for jelly beans and Tricky Kitties - I love blog prizes (and I see Charlie does, too!)

Stephen Tremp said...

You need 87 cats to be a crazy cat lady. Maybe Charlie just needs a nip of the ol' cat nip.

Margo Berendsen said...

I'm curious exactly what does the Tricky Kitty do? And what did Charlie do when the kitty was unwrapped?

Patsy said...

That Tricky Kitty isn't going to be able to take a move without Charlie being on to it!

Len Lambert said...

Hi Kitty! Why didn't you leave some jellies for Charlie???? :)

Take care! Have a nice Wednesday!!! :)

meowmeowmans said...

You look like you're about to give that thing the bitey, Charlie!

Soggibottom said...

Charlie think you deserve CATNIP AT LEAST :-)

Thank you xxxxxxxxx

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Is tricky kitty for Charley or you? We notice it says jelly beans on the front of the box so we assume it is either for you or it's for Charley and the jbs were for you to eat as you watched him play. :)

Deniz Bevan said...

Lucky old, Charlie, winning a prize!

A.M. Kuska said...

Congratulations Charlie! Not sure if I could eat anything brown coming out the back end of a kitty, even if he promises its candy. ;-)

Samantha Vérant said...

Hey! You are not a crazy cat lady! (or so Charlie told me, which means, quite possibly, I am crazy!) Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Janice Horton said...

He looks likes he's concentrating hard on getting into that tricky wrapper - and delighted at the thought of a wind-up chase. That is a clockwork mousie I presume...?
Into the mind of an old kitty is absolutely an excellent choice for 'Wish I Was Here...!'
Love, Janice xx

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Tricky Kitty is hilarious and so is Charlie's expression. Ha!

Summer Ross said...

Lovely to see you again! Charlie looks as handsome as ever.

L.G.Smith said...

I think I have a reindeer like that. Cute. :)

New follower!

rumpydog said...

Oh Dog! I didn't realize you look so much like Malachi, the kitty that came to our house and asked me to help him! woo woo woo!

Melissa J. Cunningham said...

Cute pick! And MAN, you get a lot of comments! Either you have a lot of people who really love you or that are a ton of cat people following your blog! LOL Love you and your comments on mine!

The Golden Eagle said...

Congratulations on winning the trick! :)

Thanks for the links!

Medeia Sharif said...

I'll check out the link.

Congrats on Charlie's win. I don't think cats like jelly beans anyway (well, maybe to paw across the floor).

LynNerdKelley said...

Charlie is one lucky kitty now that he has his tricky! Glad you enjoyed the jelly beans. Yummy!

Al said...

Charlie wouldn't have wanted the jelly-beans anyway

fairyhedgehog said...

Tricky kitty is so cute! As always :)

Cheri said...

Charlies you have to let us know how the toy works and if you like it!

Nezzy said...

Yep, this Ozark Farm chick thinks both you and kitty are gonna be happy campers there!

Cute pic sweetie!

God bless ya and have yourself one marvelous day.

BTW: Giveaway, my place, ya'll come. The cider simmerin' on the stove and the fudge is gooooood!!!

Mr Puddy said...

Tricky Kitty look so wicked for me, I hope you have good fun with it, Charlie : )
Thanks so much to you and your mom to be a great friend to me and purrs for me.
Luv
xoxo

Clarissa Draper said...

Hominy is white corn. We call it something different in Mexico. I'm not sure what they call it in the UK.

TK and Squashies said...

That is a silly gift. How much fun can you get?!
We thinks it's a great present.
We loves you both!
TK

Kristen Pelfrey said...

Jennifer, hooray for treats of all kinds. Charlie will enjoy his kitty, you got jellies, all is right with the world!

Jay Paoloni said...

So many times I thought, "I wish I were my cat"! The perfect life, sleeping on the sofa, going out for a walk, back in, eat, sleep, play, sleep, purr...
But you shouldn't have eaten Charlie's jellies ;)
You two are a perfect team!

Liza said...

I love when my kitty gets curious! Yours looks happy too!

D.J. Kirkby said...

Now, I thought Tricky Kitty would dispense catnip not poop jelly beans...I can see why Charlie was puzzled...maybe he should start inventing cool gifts!

Esme said...

Charlie, congrats on your win. I hope we get more posts, we have missed you.

KarenMcG said...

Well, Charlie, that's a really nice looking box there. Bet what's inside is even better.

"The Boys" and I are glad to see you stopped by Kittens 'n Things.

klahanie said...

And nothing like a 'Tricky Kitty', unless you think about a 'Dodgy Doggy'. Sorry Penny, I'm kidding.
And there was some serious snow to dash through on Friday! :)
All the beast, I mean best.

I wonder how often the cats think we lowly humans make no sense whatsoever.

Congratulations to Charlie on winning his tricky kitty!
