A Very Special Caturday

in All Posts

Hey, hey – it’s Caturday.


If you don’t know what Caturday is, please go check out Katie’s hysterical weekly blog series.  Plus, today is Katie’s birthday, so Caturday is extra-special.


Last night, Katie hosted an awesome ‘girls only’ party with many, many different desserts and a multitude of different alcoholic beverages.  Hilarity ensued, as I’m sure you can imagine.


I totally dropped the ball and only took photos of cats, despite the fact that a dozen of my friends were at the party.  I guess Caturday rubbed off on me. 


Fun fact – Ralphie (the black one) is Weaz’s (the white and black one) mommy.  And yes, Ralphie and Weaz are both girls.  Katie also once had a male cat named Gracie.   Another fun fact – Ralphie hates my guts, and I don’t know why.


Post-party dinner:


Wild rice, roasted sweet potatoes, steamed cabbage and kale with nutritional yeast, and black beans.


And a breakfast of champions – Panda puffs, vanilla yogurt, and a banana.


My goals for today:  work hard and train hard.  I really want to get in a sold triathlon workout today – my race is NEXT WEEK!  Where do the days go?  I feel like I just signed up!


* No cats were harmed in the making of this Caturday.  Weaz got high on cat nip and climbed into the plastic bag herself.

  • katie @ KatieDid July 9, 2011, 9:36 am

    I… like… dogs 🙂 no hard feelings though

    • CaitlinHTP July 9, 2011, 9:39 am

      Me too 🙂 Not a cat person!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg July 9, 2011, 9:37 am

    Good luck with your workout today!

    Cats are hilarious.

    Oh those pics are precious! My cat once climbed into a binbag full of stuffed toy animals (to go to a charity shop) and went so deep in it that only his head poked out. SO cute!!

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen July 9, 2011, 9:46 am

    I wish there was a “cat nip” for dogs b/c I can’t even imagine how crazy they would act.

  • Alayna @ Thyme Bombe July 9, 2011, 9:52 am

    This is hilarious. I have two cats and they both snore like pugs.

  • Aine @ Something to Chew Over July 9, 2011, 10:00 am

    I love how you have to earn a cat’s love!

  • Katie July 9, 2011, 10:02 am

    Haha I saw the “Caturday” title and thought I was on the wrong blog for a second 🙂

  • Baking 'n' Books July 9, 2011, 10:03 am

    Your racing next weekend?! Always on the go! Are you at the clinic as well or writing?

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 9, 2011, 10:09 am

    Aw, kitties! I would love a cat.

  • maria @ Chasing the Now July 9, 2011, 10:27 am

    I am so allergic to cats… sadly enough.

  • Cara July 9, 2011, 10:47 am

    Hilarious! Have a good one!

  • Ashley @ the fit academic July 9, 2011, 10:49 am

    haha, I love that you have that last little note because my first thought was totally “WTF is the cat doing in the plastic bag???? Can’t it suffocate/die that way???”

  • Marie July 9, 2011, 10:54 am

    HAHA WEAZ! Caitlin that picture Katie has of you and Ralph is hilarious. 😛 <-Ralphie

    • Marie July 9, 2011, 10:55 am

      😛 it’s supposed to be a tongue-out face… whoops

      • Marie July 9, 2011, 10:55 am

        =P ?

    I saw those Panda Puffs at Trader Joe’s yesterday and I almost bought them! I love the GF Puffins, so I’m sure I’d become addicted to these too. Peanut butter cereal…hell yes!

    • Caroline @ The G-Spot July 9, 2011, 11:00 am

      I am completely addicted to GF Puffins too and let me tell you — the PB Panda Puffs provide the same crunchy satisfaction. I’m obsessed! 🙂

  • Caroline @ The G-Spot July 9, 2011, 10:59 am

    Caturday –I LOVE IT!! Oh, my gosh, I could contribute oh-so-many photos to this. 😉 Happy Sat(Cat)urday!

    ralph says to expect a call from her lawyer for using her likeness on the interwebs without her consent.

  • Zo July 9, 2011, 11:33 am

    I’m sure my cat thinks everyday is caturday. They are definite attracted to
    plastic bags and all things crinkly!

  • Amber K July 9, 2011, 11:34 am

    I wish I could get a cat to not like me! They freagin’ love me and if they get anywhere near me I break out into a massive full body rash. Shoo cat, SHOO!

  • Molly @ RDexposed July 9, 2011, 12:06 pm

    I do the same when I go somewhere and there’s a dog!

  • Kris July 9, 2011, 12:23 pm

    Oh I love cats – I had to give mine away due to my son’s allergies. 🙁 I miss my fur babies!

    The picture of Weaz made me laugh – one of my cats got tangled in a crinkly plastic bag like that, scared himself silly, and ran around my house until he ran head first into a mirrored closet door! Smashed the mirror, shook his head, and kept running until I could catch him and pull the bag off. Silly boy! (No cat was harmed there either… just stunned a little).

  • Karin July 9, 2011, 12:37 pm

    Too funny about the cat nip. Enjoy your workout …must say im jealous

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs) July 9, 2011, 12:39 pm

    I have a dog AND cat… never thought I could like a cat, until she came into our lives. She looks a lot like the top one (black and white)!

  • Kierstan @ Life {and running} in Iowa July 9, 2011, 1:18 pm

    Hope you got in a great workout. I just did my first brick workout ever today (bike-run) and it was a killer! I hope to do a tri someday, but man, that was tough!

  • Victoria (District Chocoholic) July 9, 2011, 1:31 pm

    More tri training = more time to practice the human noseplug.

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 9, 2011, 1:59 pm

    I’m not a pet person….but cute pics! Have a fun workout 🙂

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss July 9, 2011, 2:13 pm

    hahaha such a cute cat picture! I abaolutely love cats and luckily have the sweetest one as a roomie. 😛

  • Bay July 9, 2011, 2:28 pm

    Quick question: what does your pantry usually look like? What are some things that you always have on hand?

    • CaitlinHTP July 9, 2011, 2:32 pm

      pantry staples:

      Several kinds of canned beans
      Nutritional yeast
      Pancake mix
      Several different kind of nuts
      Nut butters 🙂

      • Bay July 9, 2011, 2:43 pm
