Battle Cat.

When I was a kid, I used to watch He-Man (and the Masters of the Universe!!!) and thought pretty much any superpower could be summoned by standing in front of something big and gray and hollering "I have the POWER!!!"  This assumption also involved having a tough cat friend that would be my strong, clever sidekick.  Like Battle Cat, who was seriously badass. 

"I have the POWER!!!!"  It would work in all kinds of situations, like when my blood sugar gets all crazytown and I need the insulin to start working immediately.  I'd stand in front of something gray, hold aloft my magical ... sword, I guess ... and the blood sugar would start to come down without fail. 

Instead, I get this 'gray thing':

She's working.  Obviously.
Lazy, fat, and dozes off on the couch after she watches her "stories."  

I've tried standing in front of her and making reference to "having the POWER!!!" but she doesn't seem to care.  She just patters around the house, leaving her little pawprints everywhere (see them, right near her leg, on the fabric of the couch?) and staring blankly into the crinkly tube?

She's even started using the tube as her own, personal top hat.  Like she's the dim little rabbit in a sad magician's act.

I'm starting to think that she's the one that has the power.  


The faces your cat makes crack me up! She's so stinkin' cute though. Wonder how the three of them will do when BSparl comes around!

Happy Thanksgiving to you & your family!

I hope once bsparl arrives that you will still post photos of this cat. I like reading about her the best!!!

Happy thanskgiving, sparling family!!!

I think I know your problem...the correct phrase is, 'By the power of greyskull, I have the power!'

Try it and let me know if it makes a difference. :)

Cats always have the power ;)

LOL Well, at least you don't have a Scardy Cat. The only "power" K.C. has is to run and hide from all things scary. Like the doorbell. Or me walking in flip flops. Or Pete shaking the can of WD-40. Or the movement of the toilet paper roll. You know, menacing stuff like that!!

agreeing with casey, of COURSE the kitties have the power! and I will waiting for you to call Siah "Little" but alas, kitty is still sausage!!!

Invest in a injection molding machine and make Siah a rubber face gaurd and make a saddle for her. I bet the outfit would prompt the "Bad Ass Cat" in her and then wont you have some fun.

(You may want to stock up on patch repair kits for the walls ahead of time, just a thought)

I wish you well


Siah is the Queen of the castle...in her on mind hahaha


Happy Thanksgiving!

i'm with casey...cats always have the power.

I used to summon my He-Man powers as well!! Did you ever try, "Thunder, Thunder, Thundercats, HOO!!"
