Laila's trip to the vet
Heart sounds good and strong.
Not too thrilled to be here, but dealing with it.
Such a trouper getting her shot.
Dr. Craig just had to stop in and meet the new little girl.
As soon as we walked in the front door and I announced who was here for her 10:30 visit, all the girls behind the reception desk jumped up with delight knowing a new little kitten was coming in. They all just squealed with delight and couldn't get over how beautiful she was. Of course, momma stood there very proud and Laila seemed to be enjoying all the attention. She got a clean bill of health except for a few little coccidia still showing up in her poopies. She'll be on an antibiotic for that for ten days. It's a liquid and administration of it did not go well for me at home later! Got most of it in her. Will have to bring the treats into the routine for the next administration tomorrow.

The new 2008 Stuff on My Cat calendar is out!
This picture of Lilly graced the December 29/30 page in this year's calendar.
I'm hoping this one will make it in the 2008 calendar! It did produce a lot of comments, so we're keeping our fingers and paws crossed!
Let the shedding begin!

Happy Birthday Sparkey!

We have hundreds of cat toys in the toy box, but this is their favorite
Laila trying her darndest to get Lilly to play with her. Right after this was taken, Lilly expressed her displeasure with her little bratty sister being in her face.
Big thunder, lightening and rain storm last evening. Laila doesn't seem to be bothered by them. She actually was sitting by the sliding glass door watching all the lightening and rain hitting the glass. But open a plastic bag and she runs. Go figure!

Laila meets DaBird
Laila really thinks the feathers at the end of DaBird is a real bird that she has caught. It's so funny, when she catches it and has it in her mouth, she starts growling for a few seconds then walks proudly away with her prey. Thanks to David at http://www.coolcybercats.com for selling this in his ebay store and watching his videos of his furries catching their prey.

Mornings...Laila's favorite time of the day
I think it's about time to start looking around for a new digital camera to replace this four year old+ camera.

Not too spoiled

What a turnaround!
Part of the morning routine here is after I get their food tray all situated, Lilly gets her treats. To keep Laila from trying to steal Lilly's, I thought I'd give her just one to see what she would do this morning. As I bent down to place it in front of her, her little paw came up and swatted the treat right out of my hand and devoured it! Too funny!!!

Eric Clapton wrote this song just for me
I now truly believe cats can read your mind!
Another Laila action shot
I'm so frustrated! Since I still can't get Laila to trust me enough to pick her up, I just noticed filming this that she has a "booger" that needs removing. She's just too fast. I know in time (I hope!) she won't be so skittish with me, but I worry about trying to corral her to start her on her kitten shots. I've pretty much not tried to pick her up the past few days (therefore not noticing the "booger". With all the kittens I've had, I've never had this problem.
Knew this would happen

We have all survived Day 6
Soon she won't be able to fit under here.
Lilly can't help but be a bit curious. This poor little 16 year old "senior" is holding up well. Just waiting for the mom instincts to kick in. So far she's "talking" to her a lot.
Laila has adjusted very well to her new environment. My only regret is that she still is skittish toward me. I'm just being patient letting her approach on her own. However, when she is "still" and resting I can then go over to her, pet her, which she is crazy about, and then pick her up and hold and bond with her. Just going to take some time.

Laila cat dancing
No rest for poor Lilly. Those antennae ears are always tuned into the little ball of fluff.
A rare still moment. Planning her next attack.

Roomba is missing
These two were playing with each other. So cute!
All of a sudden his mom showed up Monday with three kittens in tow! We see her everyday but never with kittens. We think Roomba got kicked out of his home. We're all so sad. One of the guys at work said Roomba was like our pet. I'm not giving up on him yet. Hopefully the mom and kittens will move on soon and he'll be back with us again.
Picture taking challenge
This cube gets moved around a lot with her jumping in and out of it.
Laila has discovered the comfortableness of the dining room chairs. Is this the making of a "couch kitty"?
It's so hard trying to take pictures of her! She's gone in a flash before the camera can even react! The hissing and growling is getting a little better from her big sister too. Last night let her have the run of the place and all went well. Today going to leave her out while I'm at work. Lilly sleeps all day so I know they'll be fine.

She loves laying on her back in my lap.
A rare still moment.
Closeup for her fans.
Waving good bye!
