Notes from Snoops and Kommando Kitty

Greetings from Snoops and Kommando Kitty. It’s been a while since we’ve written a post ourselves, so we thought we’d share some thoughts. It’s been really hot here, and the house doesn’t have air conditioning, so there won’t be anything too exciting.

Our human brother finished our catio a few weeks ago. We were just getting used to it when the heat set in. Mom has refused to install a fan, so it’s a little humid at the moment. Now we need to get them to reroute the traffic. It’s pretty quiet most of the time, but there’s something called “rush hour” when cars use the road.

Cat TV hasn’t been as interesting as we hoped. Mom doesn’t have a bird feeder in the summer because she can’t keep the squirrels out long enough for the birds to get to the food. We don’t really understand why she can’t just feed the squirrels. They’re fun to watch too. We have seen a couple of hummingbirds. Maybe we could get her a book on how to attract really interesting stuff. Perhaps a wildebeest.

Mom seems to be a little on edge lately. We’ve been trying to help her watch videos to relax, but she has really bad taste (they’re all about humans). Then she gets upset when we stop the video or stand in front of it to keep her from seeing what is going on. Maybe we should get our own Netflix account. That way we could find the good stuff for her.

Our human nephew is getting bigger – and louder. We’ve never been around small humans before and hope that Mom doesn’t intend to make any permanent additions to the household. There doesn’t seem to be a mute button on him the way there is on the computer and television.

We’re rather disappointed. We keep hearing about cicadas, but still haven’t seen any. The ants that have gotten into the house are boring. The humans saw recipes online, so they must be good for snacking. They don’t let any other insects in here to chase, but there’s supposed to be a lot of cicadas so maybe a few can sneak in.

Our human brother has been cleaning out the pantry. He says he’s going to make it easier for Snoops to catch any mice that get in there. We’re looking forward to whatever he comes up with. In the meantime, he’s unearthed some treats that got buried. We’ve decided that he can be pretty useful, and we should keep him around.


Have you guys been shedding extra this year? We got rid of our winter fur a few weeks ago, but the heat wave seems to have released a new bunch. We don’t really mind, but Mom says that fur in her face is more annoying in the humidity than the rest of the year. Like we said, she’s seemed a little grumpy lately. (Probably the heat.)

That’s it for us. Hope everyone’s having a good summer so far. Purrs and head rubs.

  1. Great post!! Sushi and I have been watching for those cicadas too. Hoping the human will make us some cicada tacos- 🌮 but she doesn’t like bugs like we do, so we bet she won’t. Paws crossed though!

  2. You guys are so tolerant and understanding. I have some heat beating tips but I think they only work in dry climates, anything that circulates the air is good, and frozen stuff especially for the non human family members.

  3. Nice to see an update from you two. I am sorry you don’t have a/ and no fan in the catio- that is so wrong. Try youtube, videos for cats and you will find lots of things to amuse yourselves. We hide when the little person is here, only Joanie likes her. XO

  4. You guys got a catio! Wow! What fun! When we lived in the city, we LIVED for the catio. Now that we live in the middle of nowhere we can go out when we want. We are lucky in that the hots have not started here – yet! We get really hot summers and almost everybody has an air conditioned house. Us, we have a portable one that keeps the living room cooler and we love to lay in front of it when the hots hit! We too find our human gets cranky when its HOT! We prefer to hide in the cool in the basement.
