Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from February 2008 and features Angel Lilly

Kitty Lawnmower

Lilly really getting into her cat grass.

Mom had to use duct tape to tape it down to a plate so it stayed put.

Thankful Thursday

My bloods that got stolen the other day showed everything is great!  Mom was very happy to hear that.

Oh, yeah, I love sleeping in my PTU!

Singing the Song of My People

 Singing the song of my people to Mom as she kidnaps me and hauls me off to see Dr. Mindy.

Pleading with Mom to go home NOW!
 Trying to get away from the choke hold the tech was putting on me.

 Checking my heart.  Dr. Mindy said it sounded good.  After that she took me in the back and stole my bloods!

Mom has a hard time with trimming my furocious nails, so Dr. Mindy stole those too.  We'll get the results of the stolen bloods sometime today.  

I was a very good boy for everyone and they just loved having me visit.  They also couldn't get over how much of a momma's boy I am.

Throwback Thursday

Today's throwback is from February 2008

Trapped in the PTU!

Lilly wasn't too happy she had to go the the vetty bean last Saturday to have her bloods taken to check her bun and creatnine levels.

Don't worry, Lilly, you will be back in no time.

Better thee than me! hehehe!

Tuxie Tuesday

You cannot imagine how silky soft the top of Laila's head is.  In fact, her whole body is very silky soft.  When she was a wiggly kitten, it was impossible for Mom to hold on to her because she'd slip right out.

Photo Hunt - Cross

This week's Photo Hunters theme is CROSS.

This is Roomba, one of the many feral kitties Mom fed at her day hunting job. In the background is the road all those ferals would cross every day, all day long. When Mom would watch, she'd hold her breath and pray none of them would get hit by a car. It was amazing to watch, though, as you could see their ears turning like radar listening for the cars and trucks. Thank cod she never saw one get hit!

Waiting Patiently

Angel Lilly was sitting on the window ledge hoping Mom would open the window so she could get some fresh air.  But as you can see, there is a lot of snow outside so it's a pretty good bet Mom didn't give in to her.

Safe Travels to Our Cousins

Here are our cousins, Sam (the three-legged bundle of energy on top) and Henry, who live with Mom's niece in Chicago.  

They are leaving today on a great adventure with their Mom and Dad.  They are moving to Portland, Oregon.  How exciting!  Keeping our paws crossed that they handle the long ride with no problems.

Happy Birthday Minchie!
Today is Minchie's 11th birthday!!!  Happy Birthday to our sweet mancat!

Big Time Trouble on Tuesday

For those of you not on Facebook, yesterday Mom made Mexican lasagne and put it out to cool.  Well, you guessed it, I started licking the melted cheese on top. 

It was quite a challenge for her to find something that would keep me out of it.  hehehe!  Well, she thought of the laundry basket and it worked.
Then she looked over and saw me sitting on the top of the basket.  She said a few words from the HBO list, lifted me very gently from the top then decided to move everything to the dining room table and block it off from me.

It's so hard for Mom to stay one step ahead of me!  MOL

Mancat Monday

 Mom is always trying different enticements to get me off  her computer desk so she can do whatever it is she does on the computer besides our blog.

 This wand toy is very interesting.

Yep, I'm just about tempted to jump off and play with it.

Easy Like Sunday

Minchie likes snoopervising Mom while she's on the computer from his blankie.

Photo Hunt - Elegant

Today's Photo Hunt theme is ELEGANT.

This is a picture of Laila when she was a kitten wearing her elegant diamond studded head band.

And Minchie wearing his elegant diamond tiara the day of the Royal Wedding a few years ago.

Hangin' at ma sink

This is probably my mostest favoritest place to hang and sleep. Whenever Mom turns the water on I come a runnin' like a little bat out of "you-know-what" to get ready to lick the water drops off the bowl and under the faucet. Mom knows this is gonna happen, so she braces herself for my presence.

Thankful Thursday

Minchie is thankful for the many layers of comfy Mom has provided for him.  Also, do you notice the color coordination we have going on here?

Tuxie Tuesday

Laila understands why Mom loves to wear these very comfy loafers.  It's like resting her paws on pillows.

Happy Gotcha Day to Us!

Many thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for our cute graphics for our special day!

This is Sue, the foster mom (holding baby Laila) who fostered both of us in her house before Mom came and adopted us.  She is the sweetest lady! 

The first picture taken of Laila at our house as a 10 week old little kitten. She came to live here on July 6, 2007. She was such a tiny girl!

One of the first pictures of Minchie taken on July 6, 2008 on his first day here. Laila is under the couch hiding from him. They both got along very quickly.

It's so strange how we both came to live here on the exact same date a year apart.

Is it safe to come out from under the bed yet?  Those boomers last night were pretty scary!
