Special Request

Our sweet friend, Katie Isabella, asked if we could post some pictures of our cat themed bathroom after she posted pictures of hers.  Well, as promised Katie, here you go!




 
This room is very tiny as it only has the toilet and tub but outside the door is the sink and vanity area.  Minchie thinks he's hiding from the flashy box in the last picture.  MOL

Today's flashback is from August 2008 and it was titled

MANCAT MONDAY

ManCats, like ManBeans, control the remotes in their houses.

Ah, Mom, I think I may need help with the tiny little buttons. These ManCat paws are just too big and powerful.

Womancat Wednesday

This baggie is full of the beautiful white furs Mom combs out of me every morning.  You are probably wondering why she is saving it.  Well, the Mom of Benny, Sadie, Ringo, and Lucy is asking for fur donations to make adorable finger puppets.  We almost have enough to send to her.

FROOTBAT FRIDAY

Turkish Angoras have large ears. All the better to hear when the can of stinky goodness gets opened, the treat jar gets opened, when we gets company, when momma gets home from her werk place, when bratty little sisters sneak up on you.

We Have a Winner!

We are so excited that we were the winner in Summer's recent newsletter giveaway for the "Rescued Volume 2"!  And see those darling rubber duckies?  Summer's human knows how much we love them so Vana's (Summer's half-sister) breeder gave them to her as she just needed the ribbons, but not the duckies stuck on them, and knew we'd get a kick out of them.  We can't wait to get started reading about our friends and their rescue stories!  Thanks again, Summer!

It's been very cloudy, rainy and foggy here in Chi-Town lately so we are spending a lot of time snoozing the time away.

Mancat Monday

 Being that it is National Napping Day, how comfy is this?  One of my comfy fleece beds on top of my comfy couch.  Oh, and it is snowing!  We have not seen measurable snowfall (only 7/10ths of an inch!) since December 18th!  So far it looks like three inches of the white stuff.

And here I am sitting on my favorite kind of paper.  It's from Chewy.com!  We won a package of our favorite treats from a giveaway over at Three Chatty Cats. Thanks guys!

TUESDAY TWOSOME

No place in our house is sacred from that flashy box!!!


For those of you wondering why they say you need one litter box per cat, see above. Mom is so proud of us for keeping our boxes nicely covered up of the stinkies.

No better way to start a new week than with a fresh piece of tissue paper!  And it's blue because I'm a boy.

Today's flashback is from August 2008 and is pretty funny.

FRIDAY MEME FUN 

I saw this meme on Praline's blog and it looked like a lot of fun.

The rules: All you have to do is Google your first name with the word "needs" behind it and post the results. So I Googled "Laila needs" and these are but a few of the 26,200 results.


Laila needs to step up and face the best.

Laila needs better hand placement.

Laila needs to back off!

Laila needs a nice outfit to wear after her day at the beach.

Laila needs to learn to keep her mouth closed.

World Spay Day


In honor of World Spay Day, Laila is celebrating by showing off photos of her bare/"covered" belly after she was spayed a little over four years ago.  And what a coincidence it falls on Tummy Tuesday!
 
After my surgery, they sent me home in this awful "bonnet" to keep me from bothering my stitches.

It felt so good sitting in front of the door airing out my tummy and getting all those nasty V-E-T smells off me.

Mom felt so sorry for me with that awful "bonnet" on my head, that she took it off and rigged up this contraption on my tummy to keep me from the stitches.  

Because my furs were so silky soft, I had trouble keeping the tube sock on so Mom reinforced it with one of her nylon knee highs.  Don't I look silly, but, hey, it worked!

Finally the knee high and sock got to come off!  Here I am showing off my shaved tummy.  You can barely see the scar.

The message of World Spay Day is that by spaying or neutering your pet, by supporting spay/neuter efforts in the United States and abroad, and by informing others of the importance of spay/neuter, you become an important part of the solution!

Mancat Monday

You can always tell when it's laundry day at our house as Minchie loves snoozing on the dirty towels.  Next best thing to snoozing on Mom's lap.
