File Under: Our the Mom Is Insane

Furriends, we just don't know what to think. Our Mom LUFFS Darth Maul and she found this online. We really think she might bring it into the house... like we don't have enough of her stuff here as it is. WE think he's a little bit ebil looking; she thinks it's one of the cutest things she's ever seen. We've even heard a SQUEEE or two. Which should only ever be heard when looking at cute kitteh pics.

And she thinks we're crazy....

Leia's Tummy

Good moring, furriends! It's way too hot here; we're only able to get Porch Time in the early morning for a few minutes. Mom says the "heat index" was at 110 yesterday. We're not sure what that means, but we do know it means HOT HOT HOT!!

Anyway, Mom was telling me last night how much she luffs my tummy floof. She loves the shading - I've got white, black, gray and cinnamon all mixing together. Then she always wants to snorgle my floof! Hoomins. The things we kittehs must endure.

Stay cool.

The Rest of the Story

Dear Furriends, we haz a confession to make: we aren't really the snuggle bunnies that yesterday's picture hints at. Our the Mom has a lot of pictures of us hanging tight with each other like that, but it's not affection - we were really banding together against cousin Max.

Max and his the Mom lived with us for a few months; he's not a mean dog but he's a Yorkie, and they LUFF to chase and bark at things. Like innocent kittehs. Like us.

Now, Max has gone back to Florida, and we have returned to our usual ways. Leia would snuggle with me all day long if I let her, but I need to be a free ranging mancat, can't be tied down to one ladycat. (Mom's note: free ranging inside the house only).

Mom Letter

Dear the Mom,

A-hem. We haz something important to discuss with you regarding our litter boxes. We appreciate when you clean them out. However - it is NOT necessary for you to use words like "Stinky Makers" to describe the fragrances we leave behind.

Or to sing the "Stinky Stinky Stinky" song when you do clean them out. That's especially rude.

Yours Pawsomely,
Toby & Leia

The Kitteh Who Came Before

Today we're going to remember the Cat Who Came Before, Yasmina. She came into the Mom's life at the vet clinic where she worked. Mina was an eight week old tot who was abandoned by her former hoomins there. She went in for the first set of shots and just never got picked up again.

Even as a kitten, Mina was intensely regal. She didn't play... didn't chase jingly balls... ignored the danglies with supreme disdain. She did develop an interest in hanging out with the Mom's baby niece in the baby crib - or maybe it was the baby bottle that attracted her. (No, this was not encouraged and eventually Mina stopped). And she always had the softest fur imaginable. Mom swears she's never felt anything else like it.

Sadly, she developed this thing called "cystitis" at an early age and had to always be on the special foods. And there was a lifelong tendency to pee in the wrong places, but Mom says she just accepted it as part of the Mina package since nothing she tried fixed that (and is extremely grateful that neither Leia or I have this habit).

Mom tells us stories about her sometimes. Mina was an amazing cat, beautiful, soft and intelligent, but she didn't play well with others. When she was fifteen years old, she had to be helped to the Bridge.

And that is the story of the Kitteh Who Came Before.

A New Toy

Looky!! This is our newest toy from Cat Faeries. It just arrived yesterday. It's a 9 inch twig with leaves, with primo nip, AND it makes a pawsome crinkly sound when we attack it. Purrrfect for bunny kicking, too.

Mom opened it up and called out - first to arrive gets it first. That was me!! Here I am, taking it under the bed so Toby couldn't steal it from me. He did get his turn later though.

PS: This is a tricky weekend for a lot of us kittehs (and woofies). Lots of noisy things will happen tonight and mostly tomorrow night. We plan on finding a nice, cozy place under the bed or maybe in the closet to hide.

Flashback Friday

Here are are, about a squillion years ago. Neither of us anywhere near to a year old, learning to play with each other. Now, when I first came to live with my Mom, there was already a kitteh in residence - Yasmina. Mom says she was a royal, regal Empress of All Kittehs kind of cat - all I know is, she was a little bit scary. (Mina went to the Bridge before Leia came here).

I had the Mom all to myself for about a month, then she brought home ANOTHER KITTEH. Even though I was very young, I didn't take kindly to this ....this... intrusion. This was MY house. But Mom didn't listen to me at all on this issue, and thus Leia stayed. And she's still here, about five years later. Hmpf. - Toby

I never met the Great Yasmina, but I have heard many stories about her. But I did need a home desperately. I lived at the Stabby Place for awhile, in a PTU on the counter. Many people looked at me, and one even took me home, but brought me back after one weekend. She already had lots of kittehs and woofies, and it all scared me very much. So much that I kinda lost my head, bit the woman, ran up the curtains. And then Mom came, and adopted me, and loved me. Toby still lets me know every so often that he wants to be a one-cat home, but mostly we get along ok. And I don't let him get to me anyway. - Leia

PS: Sammy the Meezer is having his dental surgery today. Please purray for him!!!
