Friday Flashback

This flashback is from December 2010 and it was titled
FORMERLY FERAL FRIDAY 

No greater love does a Mom have than taking down her beautiful Christmas tree two years ago a week after it went up and giving the tree, lights and garland away...

...because her sweet, baby feral kitten, Laila, was terrified of it and wouldn't go into any room it could be seen from.


Well, this year she decided to try a little 2 1/2 foot tree. Mom was in the recliner when Laila jumped up next to her. Laila soon spotted the tree and within a minute tore out of the room, terrified. So, the next morning Mom took the tree away. She carried Laila, freaking out all the way, to the desk to show her the tree was gone. Then put her on the floor where Laila ran around looking all over to see what the tree had gone to. Satisfied that it was gone, she was a happy little girl once again. Now Mom is stuck with dozens and dozens of cat ornaments.

So, that's why we don't have a Christmas tree.

Mancat Monday/2000th Post!

 
OMC!  Would you believe this is our 2000th post!  What started out as Mom's blog back in April of 2007 slowly was taken over by...
 

...Cerise(RIP) and Lilly(RIP).  We have met so many wonderful friends, humans and kitties, over the 5 1/2 years!  We treasure each and every friendship.

Photo Hunt - Fall


 
Today's theme is fall. 

When drinking water out of the sink, our tails are necessary to help with our balance so we don't fall in.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

 
There are many days Mom's bed doesn't get made.  Today happens to be one of them.  Have an Easy Sunday everyone!

 
We would like to thank all the brave men and women who have served in the military protecting us and our freedom over the years. And a special thank you for those currently serving in these very troubling times. Without your unselfish bravery, we would not be able to enjoy the freedom our country affords us.
