Today's flashback is from October 2011 and was titled:
MEET PEGGY SUE
Mom is taking over the blog today to tell about the little kitten she rescued yesterday afternoon.
Her paws and belly were pretty dirty from crawling around the engine of that SUV. She ate that entire can of stinky goodness Laila and Minchie donated.

This is her bed in the isolation room they have her in.
This is the little 8 week old kitten I rescued with the help of our maintenance man and a neighbor. She was loose in the underground parking garage of my condo building and ended up inside the engine of a huge SUV. I was getting her all set up in a huge box in the bedroom until I could get ahold of Laila and Minchie's former foster mom, Sue, who runs the cat section of The Buddy Foundation. She said they'd take her! I got to help give her a bath and got to towel dry her. I named her Peggy Sue. Peggy for me and Sue for Laila and Minchie's foster mom who did the intake on her. She has to stay in an isolation room until she's checked out by the vet next week. Then I can go back and visit her when she's put in with the general population of kittens and will get more pictures then. Oh, and she only weighs one pound!
I was so lucky they took her but because I'm a supporter they didn't hesitate. Whew! She was not afraid of me and I was quickly bonding with her. When I was towel crying her she was purring up a storm and at one point was licking my neck. I miss her so much but they will have no trouble finding her a great forever home. Sandy, the neighbor who helped me, even offered to pay half of her expenses if I kept her. She has four big birds so living with her was out of the question. It's just too crowded here for three kitties.
Here you can see how much use Minchie gets sharpening his razor sharp claws on the cat tree. Well, another thing he does on the cat tree is he likes to EAT it sometimes! When Mom catches him doing it she yells at him but he just keeps nomming away. What a little brat he can be at times!
Mom likes to sort the laundry on the bed but this one day we were sleeping on the bed and she didn't want to disturb us. So, she brought the laundry into the living room and plopped it all on the couch to sort. Well, didn't we follow and curl up on the couch then.
This flashback is from when Angel was living with us.
Angel and Laila have a love/hate friendship going on. Mainly because Laila loves to be the boss lady and Angel hates being bossed around, especially by a silly girl. But overall, they are very good buddies.
...for these most awesome totes we won in contests on their blogs. They are very sturdy and Mom just loves them. They would also be purrfect for going downstairs to get Angel and bring him up in one so we can have a play date.
Have any of you girl cats ever seen a pink nip cigar? In the box of presents we got for Christmas from all the kitties from Jacqueline's Cat House, in addition to the two brown nip cigars, was this cute little cigar just for me. A few times I have caught Minchie trying to sneak in a puff or two so you can imagine the whapping he gets for doing that!
Our job today is to lay in bed keeping it warm for Mom. She has been sick for a few days with a cold/flu. She is also ready to give Minchie away to a good home because he's been a very bad boy while she has been sick. Getting into all kinds of trouble. Anything for attention.
These frootbats are in honor of Titus from The Furry Kids who had to be helped to the Bridge yesterday. He was the King of the Frootbats in the blogging world. We will miss seeing those scrumptious pink frootbats on Fridays. Purrs and hugs to his family.
This is why we had no post yesterday. Mom abandoned us and spent New Year's Eve and Day with our furry cousin, Lady (golden retriever). She is a great comfort dog helping Mom not miss us so much. But we are very happy she is back home with us.
