Happy Memorial Day

A very special thanks to all the servicemen and servicewomen who have and currently do serve our country so bravely to make it safe for us. Our Mom is a product of two WWII veterans. Grampa was a pilot in the Army and Gramma was a WAVE in the Navy and taught radio. They were very brave to volunteer to fight that war.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

It has been very hot here the past few days and today is to be even more hotter and humid. So we are gonna chillax here on the bed in the nice, cool air conditioning.

Mom told us that we are going to get to meet the Mom of Victor Tabbycat and Nina Torbie on Tuesday. She will be in town for a seminar and Mom is going to pick her up at her hotel, go out for dinner then bring her back here to meet us! She's also going downstairs to meet Angel too! This is so exciting! We can't wait!

Where is Angel?

Mom went downstairs last night to visit Angel after helping his mom out so decided to take a picture with her phone to show how much he blends in with his new floors.

Can you tell he is getting thinner? Mom can really see it. It's so funny how he tries his darndest to get her to follow him into the kitchen to fill up his food bowl. When she says "No, Angel" he gets a frown on his face and meows back at her. Too funny!

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that the top of the kitchen cabinets don't go all the way up to the ceiling.
I love to go up there to keep a watch on my Kingdom.

Especially for my Loki


These two pictures were hand picked especially for my handsome mancat, Loki, who was
starting to worry as I wasn't on the blog for a few days. I am fine but that Minchie has been such a blog hog! I hope you like what I picked for you my sweet! Purrs and nosetaps!

Toesies Tuesday


Minchie always makes sure his toesies are sticking out now when he's in the closet on the shelf so Mom can see he's in there. Last week he got locked in there for about 7 hours. Funny thing, when Mom discovered him via his muffled meows, he didn't come out right away. Just too comfy on that red blankie.

Mancat Monday

When my former Daddy came to visit me a few weeks ago, in the gift bag was this hat that was suppose to be for Laila. Well, every time Mom tried to put it on her head she ran. She's a fast one!

So, guess who she grabbed next?

Here I'm showing the top of the hat. I really am learning just to go along with her and it will soon be over. Plus, I get lots of Temptations afterward as a reward!


To show I'm still a fierce manly mancat, I'm sharpening my very lethal nails on my tree.

Happy Birthday ML!


Today is a very special day in the Cat Blogosphere. It's the birthday of Mommy ML, who keeps everything running smoothly with all the important information we need to know. She is awesome and does such a great job! We can't begin to tell her how much we appreciate her and all her hard work. Happy Birthday ML!




Angel!

This picture was taken while Angel was living with us and never got posted. Mom went downstairs to visit with him this week and his new diet food is really starting to make a difference. But he still tries his darndest to get Mom to follow him to his food bowl thinking she'll take pity on him and fill it up for him. He is very happy to be back with his mom and loving his new wood floors. He blends in so well with them it's hard to see him at times. We miss you Angel!

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback goes back to June 2007 not long after Mom adopted me. It's my first visit to Dr. Jen. I sure was a little wee one back then! Since then I've put on an additional 10 pounds!

Dr. Jen giving Laila a good looking over. She weighed in at 3 pounds 11 ounces.

Heart sounds good and strong.


Not too thrilled to be here, but dealing with it.


Such a trouper getting her shot.


Dr. Craig just had to stop in and meet the new little girl.

As soon as we walked in the front door and I announced who was here for her 10:30 visit, all the girls behind the reception desk jumped up with delight knowing a new little kitten was coming in. They all just squealed with delight and couldn't get over how beautiful she was. Of course, momma stood there very proud and Laila seemed to be enjoying all the attention. She got a clean bill of health except for a few little coccidia still showing up in her poopies. She'll be on an antibiotic for that for ten days. It's a liquid and administration of it did not go well for me at home later! Got most of it in her. Will have to bring the treats into the routine for the next administration tomorrow.

Thankful Thursday

Oh, here, darling sister of mine, let me clean the top of your head that is so hard for you to get.


Laila is very thankful that Minchie is there to help her out. And, yes, she does return the favor.

And then...it's wrasslin time!!!

Window View

Mom literally stopped in her tracks when she saw this sight. She ever so slowly snuck out then came back with that flashy box. We are never up there together. She wishes she could have gotten a picture from the outside though.

Toesie and Tail Tuesday

Would you say Laila has grown out of her tunnel?

Mancat Monday

My furs and this cat tent fit in very nicely with our color scheme.

And now for your viewing pleasure. We apologize for the bad quality but Mom's camera takes terrible videos. She's been shopping around for a new camera so hopefully when she gets one, we'll be posting movies of us in action.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

It's been a little chilly here lately, so we are gonna chill out on the bed today.
That big gray lump on the bed is Laila, believe it or not.

National Straw Hat Day

We know you all have seen these pictures before, but, as hard as we try, we just can't seem to improve on them.
Priceless...indeed!

Formerly Feral Friday

I'm hiding from Mom. We play this game where she chases Minchie and I all over saying "Gonna get you! Gonna get you!" We're sure people walking past our door must think she's a little crazy.

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Thankful Thursday

We are thankful for being able to open up the windows and slider to sniff the clean air (as clean as it can get living near Chicago). Last night we had terrible thunder boomers that scairt us so much that it woke Mom up. She got up and calmed us down though. Mom's are great in that way. Thanks Mom!

Meet my Dad

Mom met Dad down in the lobby and brought him upstairs. He walked in first and came over to the cat tree where I was perched on the top. He said hello and I got a little scared because I didn't know who he was so I jumped down and ran around to the back of the couch. Mom kept calling for me to come out so I did meowing all the way.

Had to check out the bag of goodies he brought.

Here Dad is petting me while I'm sniffing out this very cool wand toy.


Oh boy! There are even more toys and goodies in the bottom of the bag!

Here Dad is feeding me the organic treats he brought.

Mom said the look on his face showed how much he still loved me. He is so happy that I have a good home. We want him to come visit anytime he wants.


And the SHOCK of the evening was when Laila came out of hiding in the bedroom to see what all the excitement was!

This is all the cool stuff that was in the bag. He even brought Mom two pair of absolutely beautiful earrings his brother's fiance made! You may want to check out her website.

Note from Mom: It was a most enjoyable and great evening! I don't think Minchie really remembered his dad, but it has been almost two years. I also found out he found Minchie on Craigslist. A gal had to get rid of him because she was highly allergic to him. When he went to her house, he said her arms were all red from the allergies. Sadly his dad may be moving to New York for a job, but we are happy for him. We will always stay in touch and he gets to visit us each day on the blog.

Thank you so much, Ozgur, for driving all the way out from Chicago! I just wish Minchie hadn't been so sleepy toward the end of the visit. Guess all the excitement just wore him out! This meant so much to me to finally get to meet you in person! And thank you again for all the wonderful gifts for Minchie and Laila and my earrings. It was so nice of you.

A former Daddy visit!

Mom says my former Daddy is coming over tonight for a visit! I haven't seen him in almost two years and Mom has never met him. He and Mom are very curious to see what I do when he walks in the door. He has also promised Mom he won't try to steal me back. I must rest up for all the excitement tonight!

Monday, May 10, 2010

Mancat Monday

Believe it or not, Minchie was just coming out of the top part of the two tier kitty condo behind him when Mom snapped this picture. He struggled and struggled to get his whole body inside but realized he didn't fit so came back out. Mom wasn't quick enough to get the first shot of him coming out. Silly boy!
