Thankful Thursday

Angel is thankful Mom lets him stay on her recliner when he is up there. However, she does have two other recliners to choose from when this happens. Our couch has built in recliners on each end.

Rumor has it Angel's days may be numbered here. He May be going home as early as next weekend to live with his mom again. Mom is getting so sad by this but says his mom needs him. In fact, it was 11 months ago today he came here! I'm going to miss my buddy!

Photo Hunters - Jiggly


This is the jiggly part of Angel.
We have been working very hard to make it less jiggly.

Friends Friday


Remember our friends Calle, Halle and Sukki that sent us this? Well, they now finally have their own blog. Be sure to stop over and say hi and give them a big warm welcome.

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful Mom was able to finally tame me. I was a very skittish feral kitten when she first adopted me. My foster mom wanted to keep me longer to socialize me more but since we have such a quiet house and Mom has lots of experience with kitties, she let me go early. She came "that close" to giving me back, but then we had a talk and I finally smarted up. When people come over (except Angel's mom) I run for the hills. Just ask Chey's mommy, she knows first hand.

Mancat Monday

This is Angel and I waiting for Mom to come back from her scrapbooking weekend. Angel's mom took very good care of us while she was away. Out of all of us we think Angel was the happiest to see Mom. It was so cute and she was squeeing up a storm.

This is the house where Mom stayed. It had some killer icicles hanging all around. Luckily it was bitter cold so they weren't melting and in danger of hitting someone. Yesterday morning the actual low got down to -10F/-23C.

All of her friends who had cats missed their furries and were anxious to get back home to them. Mom's real good friend was working on an album of her kitties. She and her fambily have always had black cats. The picture of her friend with the reindeer ears holding her kitty is taken in his "deluxe condo in the sky" on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. What a view they have!

Formerly Feral Friday

Mom couldn't believe how close Angel and I were on the bed.

She then scooted me over right up next to him and we laid like that for a very long time. This would never happen first thing in the morning (usually 4:50am) as we are too busy growling and hissing at each other. Mom says "Go figure!"

We are giving Mom the weekend off to go scrapbooking so we will be back on Monday. Angel's mom will be staying with us to cater to our every whim. Have a great weekend everyone!

1,000th post!!!

Mancat Monday has been interrupted for this news break.

IT'S OUR 1,000th POST!

Holy mackerel! Mom just went all the way back and found the very first blog dated April 27, 2007. That is when Laila was born (if you count back 6 weeks from the time she was caught and the vet guessed her age)! So much has changed since then. Cerise (RIP) and Lilly (RIP) were the authors and now we have taken over for them. What started out as a blog for Mom turned out to be one for us. We have met so many new friends along the way and treasure each and every one of them. We haven't run out of subjects or pictures yet so we can see it going at least another 1,000!






Easy like Sunday morning

With a temp of -3F/-19C and wind chill of -16F/-27C at 6:30am, this is the place to be today.
