Sister Saturday: Dark and Gloomy Isn’t Fun with Kiki

sister saturday kiki 01 11112023

Hello everyone, I heard it is Sister Saturday and I also heard that it’s my turn. Well, I’m here, wide awake and alert. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, or even a huge exaggeration, I’m not really wide awake and I’m not overly alert either. It’s hard to keep my eyes open.

Maybe a nice big stretch will help. I’m still not totally okay with that silly time change thing. It just seems dark way too often these days. Then on top of that it has been cloudy, dark and gloomy here. It seems like it should be snoozy time pretty much all day. Yes, I know, that’s pretty normal for us kitties.

I’ve been doing a lot of this. It seems like the thing to do and I’m pretty darn good at it. I can belly up witht he best of them!

But I also end up doing a lot of this too. Enjoy your Saturday everyone and don’t forget to leave your daily link over at The Cat Blogosphere for a chance to grab an entry for the end of the month drawing.  Okay, that’s it for now!  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!

Kiki, you are the BEST snoozer! I love your sleeping poses, you’re irresistible.

BTW, it’s been mostly grey and gloomy here too, with only a couple of days of sunshine here and there. It’s not much fun for kitties or humans, this time of year! But soon it will be Santa time, with lots to entertain you, and in about five weeks will be the Winter Solstice. That means we soon will be getting more daylight again! So take heart, we’re one day closer to spring. 🙂

Sweet kiki, how nice of you to show off that lovely furry tummy. We agree here too that it’s too dark too early. We had rain all day long yesterday but before it started precious was on the patio for a solid 2 hours in the dark in the morning.

I want to reach in and rub your belly, Kiki 🙂 Dark and gloomy, but we have you little sunshine, Kiki!

None of us like the time change either. Mom wouldn’t mind the clouds if it meant we would get some rain. It’s been months since we’ve had more than a few drops.

Mornin’, sweet as can be Miss Kiki – You are too precious for words. Seems the time change is getting harder to adjust to, as although we’re early birds (or kitties!) it seems like it’s nighttime before we know it.

You are a smart kitty for sure, Kiki. Snoozing is the best way to spend those dark and gloomy days. XO

Dark days for us people need a good book and a cat to cuddle. You need a lap, we need a cuddle, what’s not to love about a dark day?

If there were no dark and gloomy days we probably wouldn’t appreciate the sunny happy days.


Sorry about all the gloominess outside by you…we have had some glorious days here, and even us pups are thankful for that!

Snooze on, Kiki! Maybe the sun will be out for Sunday!

Kiki, you are so adorable. Winter is a good time for lots of cozy naps, but you also need lots of playtime to stay healthy. It’s a lot for a kitty to balance. If you keep doing your big stretches and belly-up rolls, I’m sure you’ll make it through winter in good shape.

Chaplin: “Hmm, this sounds like the ‘Dark Saturday’ that Dada’s favorite band Metric sang about once.”
Charlee: “I cover my paws with my face too when I’m sleeping sometimes! When he sees me doing it Dada always says ‘Charlee can’t even today’, whatever that means …”
