An Ode To Sketchie

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on October 23, 2009

Straight out of a horror film…

IMG_6194

Last night, my brother in law Steve came over and Eric, Steve, and I got cozy in the family room and watched The Bourne Identity. Eric and I are huge fans of the Bourne movies. We have watched each one probably over 10 times. I also may or may not have a crush on Matt Damon. shhhhhh. ;)

Eric and I are going to bundle ourselves up in about 7 blankets and watch #2 and possibly #3 tonight! Can’t wait.

The weather is perfect for some snuggling and movies…

IMG_5361

After the movie finished last night, Eric was showing us his new media player. It lets him play You Tube videos on the TV. He decided to put on a bunch of Sketchie’s videos that have now become quite popular! One of Sketchie’s videos now has over 122,000 hits…pretty crazy! This cat delivered when he was a kitten. haha.

Without further ado, I present to you a little entertainment on your Friday night. I hope you will get a laugh out of Sketchie’s crazy kitten ways! :D

Let’s start off with the first day we brought him home…April 28, 2007:

His body was too funny!!!!

Let’s just say that Christmas is a very interesting time of year with Sketchie around!!! This was his first Christmas in our condo…

Make sure the music is turned up for the full effect!

 

Sadly, our Christmas tree doesn’t stay in one piece very long! Does anyone else’s cat climb the tree?

Sketchie as a kitten fighting with that ‘cat in the mirror’…

OMG!!!! Cats are so rediculous.

And now the one that has over 122,000 views! A You Tube Sensation!

 

Nothing makes us laugh harder than that loud ‘DONG’ at the start of the video when he hits his head. That explains so much…

And now for some kitten pictures…

IMG_3085

Those awkward teen years…

He’s a great listener….bahahaha

He loves his mice…

IMG_0246 IMG_0279  IMG_0425

MY BEH-BEH!

IMG_0306 

Small spaces…

IMG_3011

We once found him sleeping in an empty tissue box.

[I’m joking, but that would be hilarious]

IMG_0430     IMG_5969    

Oh no you didn’t!

I think this post officially breaks me into Crazy Cat Lady territory if I wasn’t there already! ha!

Now I want you to tell me about your pets!

Do you have any? What crazy things do they do?

If you have any pictures of your pets online or any videos please link to them! :)

My husband and I have a big purebred Alaskan Malamute kennel and a black lab. We do dog sledding expeditions with the malamutes, which is SO much fun! All our dogs are our beloved pets! They are the coolest, cutest, fluffiest babies!

AMAZING!
Totally made my Friday! Sketchie is AWESOME. I showed your blog and him to my cat obsessed friend and she fell in love :)

She was the one who turned me onto cats actually. Before her I was totally a dog person.
But she convinced me to foster a pregnant cat when we were roommates together in university.
Boy am I glad we did. The pregnant kitty had 3 of the most adorable kittens I’ve ever seen.

Here they are for your viewing pleasure.

I have two cats Pookie and Smeagol-I feel like I talk about them a lot but they are so fun! I can’t imagine coming home to a house without them-especially when my fiance is working late =)

Here they are..Pookie is the white Persian and Smeagol is the brown tabby

Whitney @ Lettuce Love October 23, 2009 at 7:22 pm

Those videos are great.

My parents’ cat, Clementine, has knocked down the Christmas tree almost every year. They always buy a real tree and you have to keep water at the bottom. Water goes everywhere, all of the ornaments break, and the lights become tangled. It is such a pain to re-decorate the tree and clean-up but it is also really funny :) Pets make life so much better!

You’re right, cats are redic!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 23, 2009 at 8:08 pm

haha we bought a fake tree b/c we didn’t know what he would do…plus we were in a tiny condo so it worked out. All our decorations are plastic. In this house, he will be closed off from it (we don’t let him on the one side of the house) so I don’t think he will get into too much trouble :)

I am a proud crazy cat lady too! :-) Sketchie is beautiful! I love the pic of him under the brown bag with his tongue sticking out! I had a cat that used to do that! Too cute!

My cats have never climbed the Christmas tree though and after seeing the video of him doing it, I wish that they would! Maybe I could teach them!!! Yes! I’ll make it a December goal! bah!

ahhh I LOVE bengals! when hubby and i were first looking at cats I so wanted to go buy a bengal from a breeder – but then we got realistic and realized rescuing a cat was a better option for us.

My cats totally freaked out while I was watching that video because they heard sketchie meowing and went to investigate upstairs to see if there was a visitor – hahahahahahah!!!!

Ahhh I love how much joy pets bring! We have 2 cats, Smuckers and Scout. They are quite the handful, especially Smuckers who is like a dog. She also jumps up and tries to wrap her paws around the doorknob to get out. I don’t know what she would do ever she ever actually succeeded!

I am not a cat person, but Sketchie is one gorgeous cat! That last video had me laughing so hard!
We have a miniature schnauzer, Rufio (like from the movie Hook). He’s insane and we love it. His newest trick is he sings to us! I have pics of him all over my blog, and a video going up in the next day or two. I love him so much!

Krista October 23, 2009 at 8:12 pm

My cat climbs the Christmas Tree too. He also tries to eat the fake needles of the tree, which then lead him to puke…you would think that he would figure out that he shouldn’t eat them!! :)

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 23, 2009 at 8:39 pm

Sketchie will eat just about anything. Bugs, paper, lint, you name it. ESPECIALLY if we tell him no, then he gobbles it down as fast as he can, haha

My roomie currently has a cat, but it’s rather boring haha. I grew up with a shi-tzu bichon puppy and though she lives with my parents, she’s my baby :) Now she’s 15 (so OLD in dog years!) and she’s losing her sight and hearing. It’s funny though because her new thing is to move her big bed (a pillow at least twice the size of her) around our kitchen. It takes her a looong time and she’s out of breath, but it’s all she does now! Makes me laugh every time.

I may have already labeled you into the “crazy cat lady” realm considering the only way my husband got it when I said where I got my AWESOME SUPER-DELICIOUS Glo Bars was to finally just say “It’s Sketchie’s mom!” Then he got it :) I always show him the Sketchie pics! LOL.

Love Sketchie. Don’t leave him unattended or I may kitty-nap him!

Aw, Sketchie is beyond cute! I think I’m a dog person (a small dog person, at that!), but a cat like Sketchie would win me over any day. I recently adopted two rats, and they are so fun. The older one is my ‘lap rat’ – perfectly content to sit in my lap and get scritches for hours on end. :)

Reply

Melanie October 23, 2009 at 8:42 pm

AAH!!! This was the greatest post! I’m such a Sketchie fan…ad I’ve talked about him so much that my husband had to come sit here while we watched the videos. We have a little girl, Shelli. She’s a bobtail, so she’s *really* clumsy. There are pics up on my blog. We’ve got that same squeaky mouse that chirps whenever it touches anything, too!

Last thought about the blog; I’ve got to say, it’s pretty freaking righteous that you guys appeared to be watching The Jeffersons during the “Sketchie vs the Mirror part 2.” Joey noticed that right away.

Hope you have a good night:)

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 24, 2009 at 9:30 am

Everyone mentions the Jeffersons, but we have never seen it in Canada- I think it was either a commercial using that music or it was on and we just never caught it. lol.

Reply

Melanie October 24, 2009 at 10:59 pm

It’s a pretty funny show. The theme song is iconic, though…that’s what people remember. At any rate, it provided an excellent “musical score” to Sketchie’s epic battle with the cat in the mirror;).

I love cats but my allergies get in the ay. I had to take allergy pills as a kid because I loved cats.

Now I have two dogs: Leo the co-dependent powderpuff chinese crested and Peanut the independent Pomchi (pommeranian chihuahua mix). Love them dearly like they are my kids.

I have a fair bit of pics on them at my blog itallchanges.wordpress.com

BTW I love the ode to sketchie. Made me giggle and remember some of the fun times with my kitties. And his markings are gorgeous.

LOL! I have 3 kids…ages 9, 7 & 6. They sat here and giggled and laughed watching all of these….the bonk into the glass and climbing the tree got watched over and over…then we had to look through the other vidoeos of Sketchie on you tube….great Friday night entertainment, Ang!

I’m a total cat convert after this hilarious post. Sketchie is awesome!

I’ve always been a dog person. When I was little, we had a terrier mix named Blondie who had a masochistic desire to attempt to eat bees. She was stung in the mouth more than once, but somehow, it didn’t deter her. Gotta love crazy pets!

Samantha October 23, 2009 at 9:12 pm

I’m so in love with Sketchie!!

ERGH about the Christmas tree…I’m dreading putting mine up this year. Last Christmas my lovely little Chloe passed away the day after (which was devestating!). I was so upset that my husband went out and foreced me to get two kittens (which I felt guilty about)…but of course, no one can replace what you lost..they’re just different! (-:

The kittens turned about to be a blessing, but they climbed up my tree so I immediately took it down. Now that they’re bigger cats, I’m hoping the urge won’t be there this year otherwise I have no clue what I’m going to do!!

Man. I had Chloe for 18 years (since I was 9) and she never ever climbed the tree or did anything bad.

Clarissa October 23, 2009 at 9:16 pm

Your cat is absolutely adorable, not to mention completely entertaining. That is a huge compliment, considering I’m such a huge dog fan. I was wondering though, is Sketchie a specific breed of cat that I’m unaware of? I’ve never seen a cat with such a beautiful pattern. (Well, besides leopards.) His fur is such a trip. I love it.

I remember the first three years I had my sweet kitty Montey….our xmas tree was bare for about 4 feet from the bottom up…we could only have ornaments on the top 3 feet of the tree because otherwise he thought it was there for him to whack with his paws…after that, never had any incidence….he would just curl up under the tree and sleep…it was very sweet. He never did try to climb it though…. hee hee…I miss him, and sure enjoyed your pics and videos…

I have a 9-year old cat, her name is Peashi, and she sleeps about 20 hours of the day. She has long legs like Sketchie, and when she isn’t sleeping, she likes to drink out of the bathroom sink. The door is usually closed, but she “stands” up and stretches her paw to open the door.

Sketchie is seriously beautiful. And obviously a comedian! And a YouTube star. Quite the CV he’s got. :)

I have two pups, a chihuahua (Tamale) and a miniature dachshund (Mistletoe). Tamale is… feisty, to say the least, but I love her dearly. Missy is disabled and uses a doggie wheelchair and loves getting attention and treats!

We have two cats who are almost 2 yrs old, Arty & Fuey (their “proper” names are Arturo & Fuente – they’re named afer my husband’s favourite cigar – but they only get called that when they’re in big trouble, lol) Last year was our first Xmas with them and definitely our last with a mini-tree (it was about 3 feet tall). They sniffed it out and seemed uninterested, but when we came home from a night out with friends, there were ornaments everywhere and our tree was laying on the floor & had definitely lost the battle. Not sure if you will be able to see this video from my Facebook…Fuey once got his head stuck in a tissue box and I nearly pee’d my pants laughing at him: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/video/video.php?v=61044671221 And finally, check out this video on YouTube and see how Sketchie reacts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ih6W19KTlZo My boys FREAKED and spent a good half hour after I shut it off searching for the unwelcome cat, lol!

Sketchie is so cute! I was laughing so hard at the video when he bangs his head on the mirror! lol.

I don’t have any cats, but I feel like I live at a circus most of the time. We have two dogs and a bird, and they all have their own fair share of character. Especially the bird! She’s camera shy, so whenever we take out the video camera, she pipes down, but here’s a video of her beat-boxing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eIJv9_qotM

P.s…you’ll see what crazy REALLY is when you watch this. I talk to her like she’s human. Actually, my boyfriend and I both do! lol.

I can go on and on telling stories about them. like how they sleep in crazy places in crazy positions, kick all the decorations out of the christmas tree, play soccer with whatever. And how one always plays with stuff she shouldn’t and then runs away WITH the thing when I try to take it. And how the other one crashed behind the heater because when she sprinted and tried to jump, she forgot that we had removed the window-sill that was on top of the heater.
Just made me realize…I have to write a cat-blogpost soon!

I can’t see myself ever owning a cat (or a dog, for that matter) but Sketchie definitely makes the prospect more appealing.

I guess I’m not a “conventional” pet person. My ideal pets include pot-bellied pigs (have to get a bigger yard first) and sugar gliders (the absolute cutest things in the entire world).

BUT, my boyfriend and I just happened to bring home a pet today – he’s a hedgehog and we haven’t even named him yet but he’s quite adorable.

Ásta Sigrún October 24, 2009 at 6:49 am

Hey Angela, your best bet is to put citrus on the tree, e.g. put the peel of an orange and lemons inside behind the décor so it’s not visible, but cats apparently don’t like that :) Also put it around the gifts- it doesn’t have to be noticeable:)
Take care

Thats such a good idea because Sketchie HATES citrus peel. He scrunches up his face and swats at it!!! HAHAH

My dog bashes his head against a door if it’s closed- it opens up a couple door at my parent’s house, but doesn’t really work in our townhouse. He still thinks it will though.

There are pictures of him all throughout my blog, but especially here http://spottyprep.blogspot.com/2009/01/my-wedding-day-my-husband-and-i-with.html You do have to scroll through about 4 wedding pictures first though!

sketchie is such a cool looking kitty. i’m sure you are one proud mama ;) hehe

Aw, Sketchie might just be the coolest cat ever!

I have a cat, Pinot, and a dog, Zoe. They are my world!!

Last year, Pinot was a kitten at Christmas time…so she didn’t really attempt to climb the tree. I have a feeling this year’s gonna be a different story ;)

I’m not really a cat person, but Sketchie is probably the cutest one I’ve ever seen!! I’m in love with his cheetah spots :D

I have a golden retriever, Maggie. She’s the sweetest dog ever! I miss her so much :( She better remember me when I come home for Christmas

I grew up around cats! Unfortunately, my fiance is deathly allergic to them so no more kittys for me… we are planning on a hypo-allergenic dog once we move from our tiny condo into a house with a yard!

Thanks for the laugh, I needed that this morning. I have a rescued dog and kitten, and they light up my life. The cat is a new edition, Dallas (after the Cowboys). He’s affectionately named Tom Sawyer because he makes playing with his toys so difficult. Much like Tom and his elaborate plans to help Jim, the slave, escape in the novel Huck Finn, Dallas dive-bombs off the couch for a toy he was sitting next to a few minutes before. He stalking toys from behind the wicker on the dining room table, and stretches to attack it, when he could just walk around the table and get it straight on. It’s fantastic to watch.

I have a cat named Elmo… and she fetches, and chases her tail, so we’ve always said we think she’s actually a dog just masquerading as a cat.

Up until August, we had two cats, but the older one, who was 16 years old (we’d had him since I was 7, so for 13 or so years) got sick and we ended up having to put him to sleep. He wasn’t the most quirky cat, but he loved rubbing his face all over my head right after I showered. And if you made him really mad he would spit at you. He was the cutest cat, Himalayan with big blue eyes.

Your cat is adorable! And very entertaining…

Sketchie is hilarious! I want to meet him!

I am totally a crazy dog lady. I got my first puppy this spring, a little golden retriever named Lily. She is now 8 months old. I think of her as my daughter.

Her quirks include giving high-fives, always bringing visitors a stuffed animal as a gift, and going through the laundry to find my socks then bring them to me in the morning!

I love her to bits, even though last night she chewed up my favourite heels from New York City….but I can’t stay mad at her for long ;)

So cute, and I don’t even usually like cats! I especially like when he is fighting with the “other cat” (ie: his reflection), and jumps around the corner expecting the other cat to be on the other side :)

The bourne movies are awesome! I think the top CIA agent, Pamela Landy has a pretty awesome name, but then again I might be a little biased since it’s my first and last name :).

Oh my gosh Angela this was hilarious!!!! I loved the videos and my mom and I are cat lovers (we have a “mutt” Abyssinian and Bengal mix) so we laughed hysterically at the videos of Sketchie. Those types of cats have so much personality! Thanks for sharing with us, he’s a beautiful cat!

Sketchie is so beautiful!!! My cat, Yoda, a large black and white rescue kitty is my ‘beast’. She knocks things off the counters to watch them fall, burrows under my blankets, drinks exclusively from the bathroom sink WHILE I’m in the bathroom and loves clean laundry. I loved that video of sketchie climbing the christmas tree, now I don’t feel alone! My cats always ruin the tree!…. and play hockey with the GLASS christmas ornaments.

Oh my goodness! Sketchie is hilarious. That video of him fighting with himself in the mirror is so funny!

We have a cat and a dog… they both have been up to such antics lately, but my favorite is my “I am T-Pain” app on my iPhone. Let’s just say that the dog howling on auto-tune makes for a racuously good time! Haha

Sketchie is the CUTEST cat EVER! I’m not a big cat person, but I’ve been toying with the idea of getting one. If we did, it would have to be one as cute as your little guy! :)

That Christmas Tree video is totally destined for National Lampoons Christmas Vacation! While I was watching the YouTube sensation video, my kitty was going nuts at the meowing!

haha so I was showing my mom pics of Sketchie and remembered there was this post full of pics and videos so I showed her…. she might have just become Sketchie’s #1 fan. She thinks he is the coolest looking cat and wants one for herself. :)
