Laila really has the hang of this toy.

You can really get an idea how big she's grown in this picture.

Well, we have a 4:30 appointment with Dr. Mindy today, rescheduled from last Friday's day after the storm outages. Hopefully I'll remember the camera to capture the fun. Hahaha!

It's a Push Me Pull Me!

Walking by the front door I happened to glance outside and I stopped dead in my tracks. A two headed cat!!! Upon a closer look, it was Roomba's mom, Eureka and one of her babies. Luckily I had my camera with me.

Our favorite music video

Time out to cool off

Time for me to stop, rest and cool off from a work out with the turbo scratcher.

4 months old already

Mom, why don't I get to drink the good stuff?
I'm sitting here watching Laila play with the turbo scratcher and just marvel at how smart this wee one is who I am always accusing of not having all her brain cells developed yet. What was really amazing was Saturday night I'd ordered a pizza and was waiting for delivery. I face the front of my 102 unit condo building on the second floor close to the front door and cars pull up all the time. Well, when the pizza lady pulled up Laila stopped what she was doing, ran to the slider, stopped, listened, ran to the foyer, stopped, listened then ran to the bedroom. Within minutes the pizza was at my front door. My company was just as shocked as I was that she somehow knew someone would be at our door!

Laila living dangerously

Laila discovered how to get up into Lilly's favorite space in the linen closet.

Hopefully Lilly won't come by and kick little Laila out. There is plenty of room for the both of them in there!

Lilly seemed too cramped so I took out everything except a cushy towel.

Sisterly love


I love you Lilly! Won't you play with me?

Lucky Laila

We had a 2:00 PM vet appointment today for her last round of kitten shots but their manager called from her cell phone saying they had no power or phones. Looks like we'll reschedule for next week. Everything I was going to do has been affected by the storm/power outages. We are so lucky to have power!

It was raining trees yesterday

They say we're in for more later this morning. EEK!

Thursday, August 23, 2007


We just had a hell of a storm!!! Tornado warnings and all!!! I was terrified seeings how I'm a tornado survivor! When it stops raining I'll go out and check on Roomba. The last I saw before it hit he was in the bushes up against the building. I'm sure he's terrified! Winds in excess of 80mph! WHEW!

My goatee

Momma says my goatee looks like a Pepperidge Farm goldfish. What do you think?

It's a true miracle!!!

Monday when I was leaving for lunch at work, Roomba did his normal escorting me to my car. Well, all of a sudden he was getting a little too close and all of a sudden he started rubbing up against my legs and feet!!! I was in total shock!!! Also, I was terrified praying he wouldn't be all lovey-dovey then decide to give me a love bite. Each time he did it that day I prayed he'd behave. He even did it to my boss! This video was taken yesterday. I'm now totally at ease with him doing this. When I try to walk away, I practically stumble on him as he just doesn't want to stop. Now I'm worried he may try to spray me to mark me even further! Hahaha! In all the years I've been feeding my ferals at work, none have ever begun to respond to me like this darling boy.

In honor of all the Pink Ladies out there

Since our furriend, daisy invited us to be members, I just had to go out and get my first piece of pink accessories.

Let sleeping kittens lie

What better way to spend a rainy Sunday.

Meet Laila's new playmate

No matter where I put this stuffed animal (a Himalayan that looked just like Cerise) Laila can't resist dragging it down on the ground and playing with it. I finally just gave in and am letting her have it. I have thousands of stuffed cats and this is the one she likes best.

Here they are battling on top of the cat tree.

Time out. I really think she thinks this is a little sister she can beat up on. It's so funny to watch! Guess I'll have to find another one for me now.

Here's cousin Gizmo all grown up

This is how cats prefer their swimming pools to be filled. It was originally bought for his doggie sister, Lady, but he claimed it before it had a chance to be put outside and filled with water. How we cater to our furries!

Meet cousin Gizmo

Gizmo was rescued in the field behind my office building four years ago with his two brothers. They were only about four weeks old at the time. We caught them and Buddy Foundation fostered him. Eventually my sister adopted him.
Everytime I see him I tell him if it weren't for me, he'd be coyote food!

Learning all about the computer

By keeping this space clear for Laila it keeps her out of the far! To the left of the desk is their toy box overflowing with their toys. Not too spoiled!

Daily spa treatments

Momma tries to catch me everyday to comb my beautiful furs. I just love to feel the toofs of the comb against my furs and momma loves combing kitties so we both get a lot of satisfaction from my spa treatment.

Oh, yes, that's the spot!

While momma works on the belly furs, my job is to clean the tip of my tail.

Our first Tummy Tuesday

This is our friend, Angel, who you all met the other day. He has such a cute, soft and big tummy, we thought he would be our first submission. You can see other Tummy Tuesday entries over at lisaviolet

This is another one of my favorite toys. My snake! I drag it all over the house with me.

I'm in training for any real snakes that may sneak into our house. I'll be able protect momma and Lilly

Meet Angel, our very good furriend.

I've been cat sitting for a friend and neighbor's cat, Angel, for a few days and caught him in "action" while playing. For a big boy, he can still move! Usually he comes upstairs and stays with me and the girls but because of Laila and Lilly still adjusting to each other, thought it best he stay in his own digs this time.

Oh, yeah, remember Lilly?

Lilly was out and about this morning while I was playing with the cat dancer with Laila. At 16 she either is having trouble seeing it or just isn't interested in it. Back in her younger days, it was her favorite toy and was a "world champion" cat dancer player.
I guess it's just easier to play with it laying down. She's been such a good girl putting up with this wild little sister of hers.

Laila celebrating St. Patrick's Day early

What the devil did she do to me now!

Thankfully I'm growing like a weed and won't be able to fit in this contraption much longer!

My cute little Irish kitty.

New Roomba videos

After Roomba is finished with his "roly poly" he jumps up and leads me to the way to the front door where his food and water bowl is. If I'm not right behind him, he stops and, through his body language, tells me to keep walking and FEED ME!!!

Silly Roomba always does his "roly poly" for me when I am walking to the front door of the office.

Aren't I getting more beautiful by the day?

I'm surprised I haven't gone blind yet with all the flashes going off from that thing momma calls a camera. She caught a good video of me this morning chasing my tail in the bathroom sink, but it's too dark to post. She keeps talking about getting a new digital, but I have yet to see it!

One of Laila's favorite toys

She just loves her big, bright crinkle ball. For a time it was almost as big as her! Lilly has taken a noticable turn towards her new little bratty sister. I rarely hear growls, hisses and spits spewing from her anymore. Either Laila is starting to grow up a bit or Lilly has finally had the last word on the subject! Before you know it they will be sleeping together and bathing each other...I hope!

Just the right size

Hi mom!

Laila will watch TV from up there. You should see her scale the cat tree! Unfortunately she does the same thing with the furniture. But fortunately my furniture is very kitten-friendly. Sadly my skin isn't. heeheehee!

Princess Laila

She's not such a cute little princess of late. I have tons of little kitten scratch marks all over. I'd forgotten how painful those can be! Poor Lilly is being "attacked" with them too. Mine I know are purely accidental but poor Lilly!

Laila is taking over the house

Surprisingly these two objects on the end table don't fall off like the other table but I did have to remove all my silk greenery. I don't smoke and don't allow it in my place either, but the ashtray is a Waterford Crystal one and I keep it out only because it's so pretty. It will be fun to compare this picture a year from now to see how big she's gotten. I'm figuring Laila was born around April 27 so that will be her official birthday.

Kitten magnet

It seems like everytime I sit down at the computer Laila all of a sudden decides she wants my undevided attention. She won't stop pawing at me and mewing until I pick her up. How can I resist my little cutie pie?

What's the sink attraction?

Laila licking up the water mom splashed.

Came in to brush my teeth and look what I found!

Bacon! Bacon! Bacon! Gimme bacon!!!

Oooh! Now what is this wonderful smelling thing she's showing me.

Yummy, yummy, yummy! Just a few licks is all I got.
