The Elvira Factor -2


Hi everyone! I haven’t written a post since June so I figured I would give you an update.

I have heard the term, terrible twos before, but never realized just how terrible they could be until Rudy and Rusty arrived. They never stop moving. One of them gave Friday quite the chase. Not sure which one, they look the same to me. Mom claims that one is smaller with a grumpier face and little hairs that stick out by his ears that make him look like Grandpa on The Munsters.

Rosie is in a snit because every time she tries to watch her string show on youtube, this happens:

Yup, one of the terrible two’s.


My sister and I are all settled in here. And we already have seniority now that there are 3 cats that arrived after us. I like Tuffy, he visits me sometime and he is not like those other two.

It is getting colder here than I am used to. She opens the windows when it is only 60 degrees. Who does that? Maybe she is part Eskimo or something. Emmy and Joanie have a heated blanket. Maybe mom will set me up with one of those too.

Penny claims she is going to write a post next Tuesday with lots of Thanksgiving tips. I will believe it when I see it.

Don’t forget to vote today! I have been reminding people to do that for years- check out this post on my blog from November 2016- click here.

  1. Interesting post, Elvira. I think my kittens have the terrible twos also, even though they are actually three. They just haven’t grown out of it. XO

  2. Nice to hear from you again, Elvira. It sounds like life is very lively with the two year olds running and playing everywhere.

  3. Well Elvira those newcomers will keep all of you on your toes (paws?) for a while as they explore their new home. I think things will settle down soon – really I do. In the meantime, I hope there will be more heated blankies for all of you coming soon because my Mom says she thinks this will be an “EPIC” winter! EEEK!

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. Good to hear from you, Elvira. Glad you’re settling in. We definitely recommend an electric blanket. They’re as warm as a human and don’t move around as much

  5. A very consise report on the Meowing Crew, Elvira! Good news about you and your sister settling in well. I am glad you like Tuffy. Too bad about Rosie not being able to watch her string. Looking forward to Thanksgiving tips! All in all, sounds like the Meowing Crew is doing well adjusting to the new additions.

  6. Terrible twos is a very real thing. I so remember.

    You made me laugh at the cold. You’ll get used to your new environment. You’ll see.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. xo ♥

  7. Charlee: “It sounds like you are settling in nicely, if only those rambunctious orange cats wouldn’t keep tearing up the place. Kind of like what Bean does here.”
    Lulu: “Hey, I like Bean.”
    Charlee: “Of course you do. You’re a dog.”
    Chaplin: “We are starting to use our heated cat cups here, too! It’s down in the 60s and Mama and Dada don’t turn the heat on until it’s down in the 50s. Brrr.”
    Bean: “If you are chilly, come on down here and let’s play. That’ll warm you up!”
    Chaplin: “Hard pass, thanks.”

  8. We have 12 kitties of different ages at my house.. And one AssWabbit who shall be nameless (Rabbit) who makes up for the fact that we have so many seniors. Momma tells Daddy to stop complaining because one day Wabbit will be old like the others are now, and he’ll miss the mischief. Daddy says he is pretty sure he won’t.

  9. Great post, Elvira. We hear ya about the weather … the colder temps are definitely on their way. We hope you get one of those heated blankets — how awesome would that be?

    Oh, we voted, too.’

  10. It’s delightful to see you do a post Elvira, I used to read your words before. Have fun watching the newbies try to figure things out!

  11. Im so happy Elvira you are starting to feel comfortable and Friday seems to love her life there.❤️❤️❤️
