So the Mom Went Shopping...

and let's stop right there. Do you ever dread, or feel suspicious about, their shopping trips? You just never know what they are going to drag home, do you?

And after today, we will carefully inspect everything she tries to get in the door. Because we might just want to put down a firm paw on it.

She bought a new sofa. A NEW SOFA!!! Do you, dear furriends, know what this means?

• Strangers in the house
• Rearranging of everything in the living room!!!
• A complete disruption of all that we have been comfortable with for years now
• WHY?

Ok, well, we might be willing to consider this. It does add extra seating for us all, and more impawtantly, will keep Mom from sometimes making us move from the bed during the day for her own naps, etc.

And she swears she did all she could to make this as feline friendly as possible.

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

We wish all our furriends and their families a wonderful holiday weekend.

To our furriends who have lost loved ones, especially recently, we know this will be a difficult weekend. You have our warmest good wishes. Jasper's family - we know you aren't American so this isn't your holiday, but still, we are thinking of you today as well.

PS: Mom wants to know if anyone's hoomins are brave enough to venture out shopping tomorrow? Or tonight?

Goodbye, dear Russell

We just read that Russell, another wonderful orange, has left for the Bridge.

None of them are fair, but this one, really really really isn't fair.

Please go visit his family if you can.

Sun Vs Bug

Ok, so the two of us are just relaxing, enjoying our Easy Sunday sun bath.

(yeah, we know only Leia is pictured here, but trust us, we WERE both right

And then Mom walks in and sees this really big bug on the floor. She looks at
us - we look back at her - and she wants to know why we aren't doing anything
about this great big bug on the floor.

Well, that's not entirely fair. We WERE watching the bug. Just not, y'know,
doing anything about it.

So she ends up dealing with it. Well, duh.

Bug or Sun Puddle (and on a cold day too!)?

We aren't stupid!

Well That Was Rude Wednesday

In the wee hours, Mom and I were headed towards the bed. In the dark. I knew she was there but I guess she didn't see ME. Hoomins have no senses, I swear.

So we collided. People, she actually stepped on my toes! She apologized so I was gracious about accepting. And then:

"I'm glad it was you and not Leia. You're the feline equivalent of the Washington Memorial."

???<>! Mom! (I don't really know what the Washington Memorial is, but I'm thinking it must be big).

This is what I have to live with. No respect.

PS: My official lab report came back. Nothing to worry over.

Purrayers Needed for Russell

Our furriend Russell, another orange, is having medical problems.

Please go visit his family and offer support, if you can.

A Word about Litter Box Liners

The feline community here is taking the day off, so it's my turn!

And I want to talk about... litter box liners. It's unbelievable what I've been going through lately just to find durable liners. Unscented. Not even going to talk about price, either. Until recently we used Jonny Cat liners. Those critters were very tough.

Then they started carrying only the scented ones. Anyone who knows cats, knows they hate scented stuff. Also, who wants to do anything to risk putting them off using the boxes? That's got to be one of the Top 5 in Unwanted Cat Issues! I've tried two others since, neither were very good.

FINALLY I found a good substitute today - Boots & Barkley liners. So far I'm very pleased with them. Paws crossed that they don't start with scents.

In other random news.....

I had to verify that I'm not a bot earlier today. What this site used was amazing and unique. Never seen anything like it, so I made a screen shot. And here it is!
 Wishing everyone and their furry families a great pre-Thanksgiving week!

I Haz a Suspicion.....

My Mom and I were snorgling today. She was giving me the usual - head and tail scritches,
letting me rub my chin against her face, all the normal stuff.

She also likes to give me big compliments. Which I love and agree with. Yes, I'm beautiful, soft, graceful, intelligent, wonderful, with the most beautiful green eyes, and I especially agree that Toby does NOT deserve me. I love him, but he really is a cad with me.

Then she starts with how I'm the most beautiful, etc, kitteh in all the world. And I realize - she says pretty much the same thing to Tobers! When I point this out to her, she says the same thing can be true for all kittehs in the world at the same time. That we are all the most beautiful, wonderful, etc., ever ever ever.

There is a flaw here somewhere, I'm just not sure where.

The Report

Well, Mom took me to the Stabby Place yesterday afternoon. At least it wasn't on Caturday!

I was not pleased, and I let her know with a few well timed meoWWWs in the car. But not on the way back, I was too tired.

Oh, the indignities I suffered! The lady vet there was ...ok... I guess... who can ever say their vet is NICE? These people poke and prod us, and deserve a good whap for it, I say.

Mom said there was a pretty, white furred ladykitteh in the waiting room. I wouldn't know, I didn't want to meet her. I don't want to talk to my own ladykitteh at home, why would I want to meet a strange one?? (Mom is laughing. I don't know why). Then I came home to recover.

Mom has the rest of the report:

The vet looked at the slides and said she only saw fatty material, so we are pretty sure it's nothing. We're waiting on the official lab report, which will be back in a week. We want to thank all our furriends for their well wishes!

I Have a ....Lump

Mom says I have to go to the Stabby Place very soon.

She found a soft, movable lump on my chest.

I meowed that it was nothing, but do Moms
ever listen to us? NO!

So tomorrow she is making an appointment
for me, for Caturday if possible.

Isn't that just an awful way to spend
your Caturday?

Caturday Is Here!

Time to party down, feline style!
Plus, our Mom has a three day weekend
so we get lots of attention.

Maybe a bit too much.... hmmm..
anyway, we hope all our furriends
get extra time with their hoomins
this weekend.


PS: I wanted to prove that I, too, could entirely
fit into this box. Not just that little hussy girl, Leia.

Here I am, surveying my kingdom 
atop my favorite throne.

It's good to be a Princess!

She's having some problems right now and could use your support.
