Tucker Opines on Halloween

img_2348Hello There Friends,
So this week the humans celebrated this thing called Halloween.  The Tribe of Five would like to go on record as saying that there is absolutely nothing for felines to celebrate on Halloween!  And why do I say this, well, allow me to explain.

First, the humans have been known to attempt to shove their felines into ridiculous devices of torture that they refer to as “costumes”. They know better than to try that with this Alpha but they did do it to Alberto last year. (You may recall his blog about The Great Halloween Indignity) I am happy to report that this was the human’s first and last attempt to dress any of the Tribe of Five for this event.


Still, not all cats have been able to avoid these indignities, I was horrified to see photos of felines strapped into these items of torture all over the internet (see samples above). Just take a look at their faces and tell me that they’re enjoying themselves!

img_2361Now, if you are a kitty who’s managed to escape the whole costume thing there are other things about this Halloween that I find disturbing. For instance, the male and female humans leave five days a week to a place they call “the business”. Now since they own this “business” I can only assume that they have total control over what happens there. And this is why I got my whiskers in a twist when I saw this photo. Evidently they allow other humans to bring their canines to this “business”. I am highly insulted that they have not invited the Tribe of Five to work there (not that we felines actually work, we are far better at snoopervising.)  Just let me say the humans have a lot of explaining to do!

img_0092And, as if the indignity of knowing your very own humans are secretly spending time with other humans’ canines isn’t enough to send us into a tail spin, then there is the torture we go through every night of this Halloween. Now everyone with half a brain knows that the doorbell is not the feline’s friend. (Note to guests, you can find more about doorbells and other rules you should know here.) And it’s not just one “ringy dingy” or even two “ringy dingys”, it’s the constant torture of this despicable doorbell thing causing us to run and hide every few minutes. Poor Oliver only got as far as the dinner take out bag before the hordes of costumed candy thieves arrived.

All night it’s the same hellish routine, get settled on your favorite spot on the sofa, then the demon doorbell rings,  run and hide only to start the routine all over again in a few moments.  I don’t know what you humans find so entrancing about wearing stupid clothes and putting stuff on your face so you can hijack candy from your neighbors (and I might add that teaching this horrible practice to little children is beyond the pale!)

img_2105
The Tribe of Five took a poll and we all decided we’re boycotting this Halloween thing next year and are considering drastic measures to keep the humans from opening the front door.  I mean just look at what Halloween did to Al this year!

So my fellow felines, unite against this anti-kitty holiday and join us in our boycott of this disgusting celebration next year. Felines Unite!!

It’s Linky Party Time! 10/6

Five cats in hats celebrating Linky Party
Hi There,
Oliver here. It’s pawty time again and I’m hosting this one. When #TheTribeOfFive was deciding which blog post of ours to feature, I stretched out and contemplated for quite a img_0097-1while. I finally decided that we wanted to highlight our “Let’s Talk About Adoption” post, even though it was for Remember Me Thursday on Sept. 28. Pet adoption is a big deal in our house (all five of us are rescues) and besides, you get to see the awesome kitten pictures of each of us (and a tribute to  Miss P. and Buster who crossed over the Rainbow Bridge).

But enough about us, here are my three picks from the last party, enjoy and please join us in the Linky Party Festivities, all species of pets are welcome!
Purrs & Head Bonks,
Oliver

Arrrrr – Erin the Princess Cat
black and white cat on pirate ship

I always love to read about the goings on in Erin’s regal residence and this story had me enthralled. Seems Erin found herself on the high seas with quite a cast of characters. This is what happens when you take International Talk Like a Pirate Day too seriously!

A Beautiful Tribute To Zoe – 15andmeowing

zoe

We love the felines at this wonderful blog. They took the time to send love and condolences to our friends at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life on the loss of their beloved fur kid Zoe. The Tribe of Five sends our love and prayers as well. Say hello to Miss P. and Buster Zoe!

Sister Saturday with Dolly – Brian’s Home

long haired gray and white tabby cat
I love to read the updates from the female felines at this blog. Dolly is one pretty kitty and the two sisters here at the Tribe of Five are thinking a “Sister Saturday” would be a good idea on our blog as the brothers seem to take over the blog writing!

Five cats in hats celebrating Linky Party

 

Hi All,
Oliver here. Since I’m the first member of #TheTribeOfFive to opine out loud, I”m  hosting the Linky Party. I hope you enjoy my picks from the last party.

Oliver the kitten's siganture

BasilBasil the Bionic Cats Summer Pawty

I must say, those British moggies know how to pawty! Cat shaped treats, steak on the grlll ,kung fu kitties, birds and more. Basil, you`re the man!

 

 

ColleAll Things Collie – They bring Me Joy

I loved the way the collies human shares her heart about her love for her fur kids. Our humans always tell us how much The Tribe Five means to them. I wish every animal had humans that loved them that much!

ashmaTales of Asthma and Allergies With Gracie – Brian’s Home

There are lots of kitties with allergies and asthma. Our very own Miss P. (who crossed the Rainbow Bridge four years ago after living a rich and happy 18 years) had asthma all her life.

 

 

 

 

Miss P.

The humans knew how to keep her healthy and her asthma attacks to a minmum so if you’re an asmathic kitty, dont worry, you can live a long, healthy, happy life.

Time to Pawty-Linky Party 4/15

Five cats in hats celebrating Linky Party

Aaaaaaaand, it’s pawty time again! Lily here hosting this party. I’m all decked out in my Easter bonnet so naturally I’m the most likely pick for hosting. First, I want to share my three faves from the last party, ‘hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

The Catburry Bunny Auditions – 15andmeowing.com

gray and white cat in bunny ears

My only complaint about this post is that I didn’t get to the audition. I saw so many great catidates, I wouldn’t have been able to choose just one but IMHO cats make the BEST Catburry Bunnies and there should be more next Easter! I do have to say though, this purrticular contestant looks less than enthusiastic.

Sunday Selfies – Purrseidon

black and white cat selifie

We felines are great fans of the selfie, I mean, look at that gorgeous profile! I also enjoyed the other selfies except for that one with the loooooooong nose, kinda’ freaked meowout, if truth be told but, as you can see from Purrseidon’s picture on her blog page, she is one very brave cat, definitely braver than this feline!

Sunday Selfies, Maverick & Charlie – Animal Shelter Volunteer Life

adobtable siamese cat
I know, this is another Sunday selfie post but I was taken with these handsome fellows. Maverick in purrrticular, reminds me of our very own Alberto. If the truth be known, every one of the Tribe of Five has some Siamese, even Oliver who resembles a Holstein more than a Siamese! I sure hope these handsome fellows find forever homes soon!

And Now…..Let’s Party!

black and white shelter cat waiting for a forever homeAnimal Shelter Volunteer Life – Tramper’s Sunday Selfie

I picked this one because I love anything that sheds light on animal shelters and, Tramper is quite a handsome guy. I was adopted from our local shelter (all of The Tribe of Five are rescue kitties)  and the female human loves to do whatever she can to help our shelter and shelter animals. You may not live close enough to adopt Tramper but you can give a forever home to a feline at your local shelter. (Look how great I turned out)

black and white foster dog gets forever homeTravels With Barley – Happy Trails To You

I loved this story and wanted to learn more about humans who foster pets. My humans fostered a year ago but they were “foster failures” and Alberto and Oliver are still with us. Fostering is so important and for the humans who are called to do this I give them a two paws up and say a heartfelt “THANK YOU”!!

collie puppy socializationA Well Socialized Puppy Is A Happy Puppy

I know, this is about puppies but there is wisdom for humans with felines to learn as well. This takes me back to the fostering topic as the female human is quite convinced that the early socialization Alberto and Oliver received helped shape their personalities to be calm, human friendly felines.
