"No... not me"- Animal Photo Hunt #6

Cokie the Cat posted this week's Animal Photo Hunt.  We have to post some pics of pals that are not us.
Well, here are some of my friends that are not me.  Cool!

Not me... this is Cokie the Cat.

I know it's hard to believe, but this is not me, either.
Nop, not me.  This is my friend, Iñigo Flufflebum.
This is almost like me... but not.  This is Bebe Le Blanc.

Ceci n'est pas un chat.

Family Friday: Liah

Hello!  I'm Liah, the princess of the house and the youngest, so I'm Mom's little baby.  I'm not sure if I'm a dog, I'm either a human baby or a cat (cats are my best friends).

This is me when I was little.

I used to have long hair...

... but, sometimes, I had a bad-hair day.

Now I have it shorter.  It's easier to comb and a lot more cooler.

If the plush is a little big I always act with caution.

Mom loves to dress me up, specially at night if it's cold.

My favorite place to sleep is under Mom's bed, or under The Other One's bed, if she's taking care of me.

I love fans.  If there's one on, I'm in front of it.

I love my Mommy and I'm always looking up to her face (specially if she's eating chicken, mmmm).

I like to nap on the sofa, sometimes behind the cushions.
Thanks, Piru, for allowing me to write about myself today.

Ola kala!

Tourism Tuesday: Paseo de la Princesa, San Juan

On today's post we'll visit the "Paseo de la Princesa", at Viejo San Juan, Pueto Rico's capital.  Since it's far away from here, I invite you to go in my very own airplane: The Furry-plane =^..^=

The Furry-plane

Paseo de la Princesa
There are soooooo many interesting places at San Juan, a town built since the Spanish occupation in Puerto Rico, centuries ago.  The Paseo de la Princesa, go around the big walls that protect part of the city. 

The walls are very wide and strong.
There's a corner with some benches and a great view.
This is The Other One's favorite bench under the tree.
And here's the tree.  Isn't it magnificent?
And this is the view when you're sitting in the bench.
Here's the "Puerta de San Juan" (San Juan's Door), where you can read an inscription in latin giving the welcome to visitors.

From the Paseo you can see the bahía (bay) the main entrance of many ships to Puerto Rico.
You can see some birds, too, fishing with their loooong beak.
And, if you stay long enough, you can also see personal sailboats...
... and the sunset.  Beautiful, isn't it?

Family Fridays: Prince (again)

Last Friday, I was complaining about Mom's petition to share MY BLOG with Prince. I thought my friends would back me up on this, but it was the other way. Some of you liked Prince so much that you asked for a day every week for Prince. I couldn't believe it! But Mom and The Other One liked the idea and talked me into it. So, from now on, Fridays will be "Family Fridays", (and my day off). Every week, one member of my family will have the opportunity to write about himself and post some pics. But, since it's MY BLOG, I'll retain the right to edit every entry- in case someone try to write something negative about me. So, now, I'll leave you with my brother Prince.

Hi, I'm Prince. I'm 6 years old. I'm not as fat as Piru...
- "I'm not fat, I'm husky!"
Anyway, I used to be very athletic and thin, but since Mom doesn't allow us to go out all the time, I sleep aaaaaalllllll day and I have develop a little round belly.

It seems bigger here, but it's jut the angle of the camera.

I'm the one who lives under the shadow of my famous brother, Piru. Yes, I don't get the attention he gets and all the purrrings and nosetaps from his friends around the world. Everybody always say how handsome Piru is, how beautiful, how this, how that... pfffft! But, I'm not jealous, no, I'm not. Do you know why? Because, in real life I'm the romantic one and I have other characteristics of my catonality that makes Mom love me, too.

As I told you before, I'm the romantic one. Can you resist this face?

I'm the strong one.

I'm, also, the most brave. I'm the one that defends the house from other cats; those intruders run away like crazy when they see how ferocious I get when they invade my territory. Maybe, because of that, I also get the fame to be the most grumpy, but that's not true.

I'm a sweet boy that loves to give Mom headbumps and meaws for prawns, specially to The Other One, because she gives them to me directly into my mouth- *sigh* I love to be spoiled!

And after that prawns bellyful a good nap is a must.

I have to admit that, sometimes, I'm a little harsh, specially when Mom gets me to the vet. As Piru says: I hate vets, I really do. She took me to one the other day because I had an itch that was driving me crazy... and her, too.

First they put you in a cage, inside a car- I hate cars, too- and to the vet even worst. There, someone that you don't know, tries to touch you and put needles in you. Then, they throw you in the cage again and you can't put the bitey on anyone.

Where's the justice?

Back home, Mom tried to give me some medicine. She took my favorite wet food and put a crushed pill on it. She thought I wouldn't notice. What was she thinking?

I won't eat it, you eat it!

Then, she tried to crush it even more and give it to me dissolved with a syringe. I put on such a fight that end up with that horrible mix coming out of my nose. Ugh!

What a horrible taste had that stupid pill!

Mom, I won't take that medicine, I'm out of here.

Well, Piru's friends, it was nice to meet you all. All this writing have make me tired, so I'm going for a little doze now. See ya!Aaaaaaaaawwwwwwnnnnhhhhhhh!

Please, purrs for Iñigo Flufflebum

My friend Iñigo Flufflebum, from Rumblebum, is sick. He has a large build of fluid around his beautiful heart and the vet thinks it is cardiomyopathy. He has to stay at the vet at least until Monday, but his Rumblemum brought him his friend Thwack and one of his fleecy blankies. At least, poor Iñigo won't feel so lonely. We are purrring a lot for him and sending him *headbumps* and *nosetaps*, from Prince and me, barks and tail wags, from Kala and Liah, kisses and blessings, from Mom and The Other One, so our friend will feel better soon.
Please, purrr for Iñigo, visit his blog and leave a comment showing your support.

Ola kala! for Iñigo

I proved Mom wrong!

JEJEJE... yes, I proved Mom wrong. About what? Well, yesterday I asked my friends for a place to stay until the construction on my house is finish. Mom told me that I'm to demanding and hard to please, and for these reasons I wouldn't find anyone that would want to take care of me. But she's wrong. Yes, Mom, I have friends that love me and want me to move in with them. YES!!! My good friend Mario, from Mario's Meowsings, was the first one to answer my request. Then the beautiful Dolly, from The Little Dog Speaks, also volunteered to have me in her house. And my other good friend Max, from Adventures of a Blind Dog in a Big World, also told me that I have a space in his house. All offers are good for me. So, Mom, start packing my things, I'm out of here.

Tourism Tuesdays: Lares, Puerto Rico

My second Tourism Tuesday: yay!
Today, we're going to visit Lares, one of Puerto Rico's municipalities. Lares is the pink area in the map.

Lares is a historic city known as "La Ciudad del Grito" (The City of the Shout), because in 1868 it was the place where pro-independece rebels wanted PR to gain its freedom from Spain. It was soon extinguished though. They even had their own flag which many Puerto Ricans now consider a symbol of their wish for independence. This event in PR's history will be celebrated next September 23, with a holiday.

The landscape on the way to Lares is beautiful. You can see a lot of different animals and trees.

The geography is very irregular with a lot of mountains.

There were a lot of cows eating grass.

There's a cattle farming.

A small man-made lake for the cattle.

The welcome sign.

A house with the Lares' flag.

Lares' famous ice-cream parlor.

The Heladeria Lares is famous around the world because they are very creative and make ice cream of whatever you can think of. For example, rice and beans ice cream, avocado ice cream and many more. Mmmm, all of them delicious!

People love to go there. There were a lot of people at the ice-cream parlor.

There were a lot of people, too, at the town center square in front of the ice cream parlor.

They had a sculpture of Ramón Emeterio Betances with the flag of Lares.

At the center of the square was a mosaic with the map of Puerto Rico. Here's the west area.

And here's the east area, including Vieques and Culebra.

Mom had to come back home because it was going to rain a lot.

So, if you come to Puerto Rico, don't forget to visit Lares.
