Mom to Rascal and Rocco

Well, we asked you to tell us about your blog (or a friend's blog) for M&G.  We do this for blogging cats and dogs and rabbits and ... but this week we are doing this a little differently.  It's the story of Rascal and Rocco as told from the perspective of why their human helps them blog. 

I began blogging about Rascal and Rocco simply as a way to keep my sanity! I am only a slave to their every whim. They do not come and curl up on my lap (unless they decide they want to and then I am to comply or else!), or purr and love against my leg.  No, they demand food, attention, and the opening and closing of doors at their bidding.

They agreed to let me blog about them only because they believe they are the most fabulous looking beasts in the universe and they couldn’t wait to have their pictures plastered all over the internet so everyone could agree and admire them.

In fact, further proving their vanity, they’ve started the Pet Parade to show off in front of everyone and march their glorious paws all over the internet. They’d love for any and all pets and animals to follow in this weekly procession, so don’t be shy, join in!

I truly believe they are plotting to take over the world, but don’t tell that I’ve warned you!

They act like kings! If they so desire to nap in a particular place, anything in their way is shoved to floor without a second glance and I left for me to pick up. Not that’s they’d care if I just left it, but I would like my house to stay somewhat clean! I have never known such demanding cats as these! I might live in complete fear of them, if it weren’t for the comic relief they provide.

They are huge, but I don’t think they realize this. They try to squeeze into places where they don’t fit, boxes, bags, lunchboxes… and yes, have actually gotten stuck! They are also not so nimble as other cats I’ve known. They trip over things, misjudge a jump, or most often leap with an arrogant nose in the air, but rather than landing gracefully on the counter or what have you, paws will go every which direction like a cartoon character, and they’ll slip and fall to the ground! Then dash away with a wounded pride!

I find them sleeping in the oddest places, too, such as in the dish rack or a pizza box (when empty, but still warm). They constantly crack me up and rather than always sit here shaking my head in disbelief myself, I was compelled to share these stories with others who might enjoy, at least crack a smile, and possibly even sympathize with me, a slave to two obnoxious felines.

And now I have an adorable little dog, Max, who his wiggling his way into the blog as well.

Keep up with all their crazy antics at RascalandRocco.com.

  7. How funny! Napping in the dishwasher basket. Two of our crew tries to climb in there, but they are only being nosy, not looking for a napping spot.
    It is a pleasure to meet you, and I hope to visit your blog. My own cats' blog has been rather neglected due to personal issues at home, but the Talk With The Paws crew is still up and running, so that's who we are, since you probably won't recognize our name.
