We like sitting with Mom while she wastes time works on our blog and we visit our friends.  Just because her sister is on vacation this week, she thinks she's on vacation too, so we are way behind in visiting and commenting.

Since it's Caturday, here's a repeat of the Caturday Song video.  We just love this video!

Angel is waiting for Mom to open the refrigerator so he can sneak some ham.

Thankful Thursday

Laila is thankful for the hairball medicine Mom gives us every week.  We rarely see hairballs on the floor, which makes Mom very happy because if there is one, she'll undoubtedly step on it.

Whisker Wednesday

This is our cousin, Sushimi.  She is not a fan of the flashy box either.

Tummy Tuesday

 Laila is shamelessly showing off her floofy tummy just begging for some snorgles.

Happy Birthday to our friend Jan. Thank you so much for helping the CB run so well!  We really appreciate it!

Mancat Monday

OMC!  The cold front finally arrived last evening so today I'll be soaking up all the window sniffies I can as Thursday they are saying it's gonna be 100F/38C!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Chillaxin waiting for the cold front due later this afternoon.  We need window sniffies very bad!

Photo Hunt - Hot

Today's theme is "hot".

Laila's favorite place to stay cool when it is hot outside, is inside in one of her Costco boxes in the nice air conditioning.  And it has been hot here in ChiTown!

Today's flashback is from October 2009


We are thankful for sun shiny days.

A Mancat and His Sports

Minchie's favorite part of the local news is sports.  However, we are Cub fans, not Sox fans!

International Box Day

In celebration of International Box Day, Mom made a special trip to Costco yesterday to get me a new box.  It's very festive, only she didn't bring any of the nuggets home for us.  But she did buy one of their rotisserie chick-hens which she shared with us.  YUM!

Minchie is trying to weasel into MY new box.  Sorry, dude, but it's MINE!

Mancat Monday/Meet Misha

 Mom says we have to close the curtains later this morning when the HOTS (near 100F/38C) come, so I'm soaking up some rays now.


 As promised, here are a few pictures of Misha, the kitty Mom was cat sitting for this weekend.  She's very tiny, very soft and so sweet.

 It was hard for Mom to get pictures of her because she was all over Mom rubbing up against her legs and doing roly-polys on the floor.

 Time out for a toesie wash.

It was nice meeting you, Misha!  Mom looks forward to cat sitting for you again.

Happy Father's Day

Minchie wishes his former daddy a Happy Father's Day.

And Mom wishes her daddy (RIP) a Happy Father's Day.

It's Caturday!

 I didn't expect Minchie to be on the chair when I jumped up!

 Okay, I'll let him give me a head and ear wash before I kick him off.

Mission accomplished!

Mom is cat sitting for a kitty in our other condo building this weekend that she's never sat for before.  She's a beautiful, petite gray tuxedo named Misha.  Mom will try to get some pictures of her.

Friday Flashback

Today's flashback is from February 2009.  It's Angel's first day when he came to live with us for that year.


Auntie Dee, who is one of our neighbors, is having wood floors installed in her condo so her kitty, Angel, will be staying with us a while. Until he gets use to us, Mom is keeping him in the bedroom.

Angel is under the bed and I am on guard to make sure nothing happens to him and to keep him from being scairt.

Angel came out to use his litter and grab a bite but then saw Mom at the bedroom door with that evil flashy box so he scrambled back under the safety of the bed. Laila doesn't really know what to make of him but I love having another Mancat in the house with me.

Where's Laila?

This is a sight we never see!  Laila up on the dresser.  Mom ran for the flashy box and quickly took this picture.  Mom is totally obsessed with Marie (the white kitten) and the Aristocats.

Whisker Hump Wednesday

How about these whisker humps and whiskers!

Tail Tuesday

Minchie thinks he is hiding from Mom.

Mancat Monday

Minchie found a great sun puddle for working on his fur tan today.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Even though we are having the HOTS outside, Minchie just couldn't resist starting out this Easy Sunday on top of all this comfyness.  Hope everyone has a great Easy Sunday!

Photo Hunt - Clean

Today's theme is "clean".
Here Minchie is taking his turn to clean Laila's head and ears.  They do this to each other many times a day.

Friday Flashback

Today's flashback is from July 2007.


This is now Laila's absolute favorite toy!

She thinks it's a real birdie. Plays with and "kills" it then picks it up in her mouth and runs away with it just to drop it and start the little game all over again. It was hard to get this picture as she moves quick! It's so funny to watch! Who needs TV!

Thankful Thursday

Nothing could make Laila happier.  Nomming on cat grass while being combed by Mom!

Toesies Tuesday

 Here I am with my sweet turkish princess, Baby Patches. Today we are featuring both of our toesies.

Baby Patches

Do you see the similarity?  These Turkish Angora toesies pack a lot of punch but can also be gentle when we give our mom's sweet pats on their faces.

Hug Your Cat Day

Today is Hug Your Cat Day.  Well, in our house, we get hugged many times a day.

This is Mom hugging me the day she brought me home from The Buddy Foundation.

She gives very excellent hugs!
I think I was giving Mom smoochies on her face.

Remember...take time to hug a kitty today!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Today we are chillaxin and resting our toesies from all the fun we had and dancing we did at Truffle's debutante ball yesterday.

Had a Ball at the Ball!

Today is our friend, sweet Truffle's, first birthday and in celebration, Mom Paula had a Debutante Ball in her honor.  Visit HERE to see all the beautiful and handsome attendees.

Of course, Minchie attended with his turkish princess, Baby Patches

Laila had to be a tag-along as her mancat,  Loki, is busy selling his house.

We wish sweet Truffle a very Happy 1st Birthday (and sweet little Beignet too up at the Bridge).  She has turned into a simply gorgeous ladycat!  Looking forward to sister, Brulee's, first birthday in August now.
