eye of the tiger

April 21, 2012

That Pumpkin is so hilarious. Last night I just had a feeling she would be outside and when we got to our front porch, she was sitting on the steps just waiting for us! [She lives next door]

And sometimes when you go on the porch you just hear “Maw. Maw. Maw” and then you see a dot of orange –


And then she charges in!!




She actually doesn’t like to be pet that much, but she loves to RUB on anything! Our legs, tables, the porch. Rub, meow, rub, meow. Last night she rubbed herself down the sidewalk about 3 feet!


The human meal of the morning was a strawberry + banana smoothie


The Mix:

  • 5 strawberries
  • 1 small banana
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 5 ice cubes


  • Granola
  • Chocolate coconut butter that was too dry to magic shell for me Sad smile


Matt just got home from the market and we’re packing up to head to Hillsborough. My good friend Matt Compton is getting married today!

Your cat is adorable! As well, your breakfast looks delicious as usual. Enjoy the wedding!


2 KathEats April 21, 2012 at 7:52 am

She’s not ours, but we love her as our own in the next yard over :)


3 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats April 21, 2012 at 7:52 am

that smoothie looks so good! If only it weren’t 40 degrees here in Chicago… Have fun at the wedding!!!


4 Molly @ RDexposed April 21, 2012 at 7:56 am

Her entrance looks epic with your pictures!

I’m feeling soo hot right now- a smoothie would be ideal!

Love Pumpkin! I always wanted a cat that color! It seems like the grey ones grab my heart more.
Have fun at the wedding today and show us some pics of the food you had there too. (If you want… :)


7 Grace @ Grace Dishes April 21, 2012 at 8:49 am

I love these pictures! Your cat is so precious.
Have a lovely weekend! Breakfast looks yummy :)

Our neighbours have two cats that like to wander over to our backyard…they never let you get close to them unless you are gardening! Then the one cat loves to come and rub up against your legs…funny cat!


9 Sydney@ Nutrition with Sydney April 21, 2012 at 9:24 am

Every day that you post pictures of your porch, I fall more in love with it! It just seems so perfect! (Or maybe I should say purrrrfect this morning??) :)


10 Kelly @ Vegolosophy April 21, 2012 at 9:27 am

That cat is just too cute! Have fun at the wedding!


11 Andrea April 21, 2012 at 9:35 am

Your smoothie looks delish! Have fun at the wedding today! :)


12 Angel7 April 21, 2012 at 9:59 am

If the cat gets in the house, does that bother Matt’s allergies, even if the cat is not in the house while Matt is there? I believe that the cat dander is what bothers me.



13 KathEats April 21, 2012 at 10:55 am

Yeah, she can’t come inside : (


14 Averie @ Averie Cooks April 21, 2012 at 10:25 am

Have fun at your friend’s wedding! Safe travels!


15 Sue April 21, 2012 at 10:30 am

I think that Kitty thinks she is yours, or actually you are hers…..all that marking means something!


16 Laura @ She Eats Well April 21, 2012 at 10:30 am

The kitty is so cute. I love orange cats, as my first pet ever was an orange cat named Murphy. I might have to recreate your breakfast – strawberry and banana is a classic combo and it’s perfect for a hot day – it’s 78 in SF today! Happy Saturday!


17 Tiffany April 21, 2012 at 11:23 am

I love your smoothies in a bowl. I always want to make one but I love the thickness and doughy taste of overnight oats. How can I recreate that in a smoothie bowl? lol

Have a great day!! :)


18 KathEats April 21, 2012 at 12:12 pm

You can blend it up like one of my Dough Boy Smoothies?


19 Stephanie @ Legally Blinde April 21, 2012 at 11:44 am

Your smoothie in a bowl looks really delicious! I might have to try that out soon. Yum! Enjoy the wedding :)


20 Alyssa (factsandflax) April 21, 2012 at 11:48 am

I have an orange cat but he is much fatter and weighs about 20lbs! He could use a heart breakfast like that 😉


21 Katie @ Creature of Habit April 21, 2012 at 11:58 am

That’s a daring neighbor cat. We have a few local cats that like to come chill in our garage but I don’t think any have made an attempt at the actual house. Probably for the best. Our dog would eat them alive lol.


22 Annette @FitnessPerks April 21, 2012 at 12:18 pm

I love smoothies in a bowl!! SO refreshing and delicious :)


23 jojo April 21, 2012 at 12:34 pm

The cat is so cute!! She must really like your porch :)
The granola mix looks great for a warm morning 😀


24 Eileen April 21, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Ha, aren’t neighborhood cats great? A couple of our local cats just LOVE to hang out in our backyard and stare at the birds. We don’t know any of their names, so we named them all after food–meatloaf and porkpie and fishsticks. :)


25 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More April 21, 2012 at 1:05 pm

YUM! Smoothie sounds pretty good!

Have fun at the wedding!


26 Sierra April 21, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Do you know if your neighbors are taking care of pumpkin properly? A happy cat doesn’t tend to wander as much from home this one seems to!


27 KathEats April 21, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Yes, totally. We are close neighbors.


28 Hannah April 21, 2012 at 11:30 pm

CHOCOLATE coconut butter? This chocoholic did not know such a thing existed. MMm! Is it found at Whole Food-ish stores?


29 KathEats April 22, 2012 at 7:28 am

Yes, called cacao Bliss by artisana


30 jassy @ Healthy Egg April 21, 2012 at 11:31 pm

cats are snobbish and proud…they know what they want you just let them be :)


31 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count April 22, 2012 at 7:54 am

Yummy sounding smoothie!


32 occula April 23, 2012 at 11:03 am

Awww! We used to have a neighborhood cat who would run up the stairs and into our apartment if we held the door open too long while unloading groceries, etc. He was such a sweetheart!
