I am a bad, bad kitten!

Yesterday I had an appointment to go to the V-E-T in the PTU and decided at the last minute I wanted NOTHING to do with that! Momma tried three times to get me in the PTU. I put up a good fight and finally won in the end. hehehe! Here is a picture (which doesn't do it justice) of just SOME of the puncture wounds I made on momma letting her know just how much I didn't want to go. Finally, after a lot of screaming and crying from her, bloods dripping down her arms and shoulder, she conceded. She was very mad at me and kept mumbling something about having all my pretty little sharp nails yanked out when I go in for my surgery that is gonna yank out all my kitten making parts. GULP! I hope she calms down and changes her mind! Momma went to the vet without me (YAY!) but took my poopie with her. At least there was good news in that department. All the coccidia bugs were gone....finally! No more pills. She says now she's going to give me some drugs to make me sleepy and make it less stressful for me when it comes to getting in the PTU. I'm anxious to try those out!

I am not alone

Everytime I turn around there are cats everywhere! I finally figured out how to get to the top of the tall dresser (heeheehee!) and all I found were these weird cats that I couldn't get to play with me.

As long as mom leaves enough room for me to lay down I can't really complain.

Another game I love to play

When mom sees me ignoring my turbo scratcher, she puts it half underneath the tv stand and make it's a game and challenge for me to crawl underneath and play with it from there.

She says soon I'll be too big to fit.

So, in the meantime, we work well as a team keeping me amused.

My song for Lilly

You keep slappin’, when you oughta be playin'
and you keep losin' when you oughta not fret.
You keep hissin' when you oughta be playin'.
Now what's right is right, but I ain't lost a fight yet.

These paws are made for boxin’, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these paws are gonna beat the crap out of you.

You keep ignorin' me when you should playin’
and you keep thinkin' that you´ll have the upper paw.
Ha! I just found me a brand new pair of gloves yeah
and what I know you ain't HAD time to learn.

These paws are made for boxin’, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these paws are gonna beat the crap out of you.

Are you ready Lilly? Start boxin'!

This song is especially dedicated to henry helton

These paws are made for boxing

Mom didn't name me after Laila Ali for nothing! My paws are getting very strong in my boxing matches with Lilly. For being a kitten, I can really hold my own with her! Laila Ali would be so proud of me!

One of the ways I drive momma crazy

Sometimes I chill out in my litter box then when I know I have her undivided attention, scoop up some litter with my front paws and "pretend" to eat it. heeheehee!

Our cousins, Sushimi and Gizmo

We couldn't get our blog to add a picture today from home so mommie added this one she had at work. These are our cousins, Sushimi (on the left) and Gizmo. We wish they could come over for play days but Lilly probably wouldn't be nice to them.

I'm such a big help

This is the chair momma sits in when she is on the computer.

This is where I sit and supervise the content of our blog and she transcribes what I want to say. She is a very good employee!
She was also telling me that my sister that I never knew and went to kitty heaven 2 1/2 years ago, Binky Baby, always sat like this on the chairs. She's thinking maybe a little piece of Binky Baby is living on in me.

Kittens just want to have fun

Here I am trying to get big sis's attention so she'll play with me. All she ever does is growl and hiss at me and bop me on my head. I won't quit until I win her over!

Oops! Yes, mom, I'll behave. hehehe!

Am I getting lazy or what?

How nice there is a water source for me in one of my favorite places to rest.

Now, that was refreshing! When momma comes in to use my sink and sees me in it she just laughs and walks away and says she'll come back later. I've done a pretty good job in training her, wouldn't you agree?

See how much I've grown since this picture was taken not long after mom brought me home.

Good bye sweet Bootsie Cutesie

Got very sad news today from Julia in Tacoma: "Hi, Peggy. Just wanted to let you know that Bootsie Cutesie went to be in Kitty Heaven on Friday night. She stopped eating again. They did an ultrasound and found iratable bowel syndrome, acute pancreatitis, and bowel cancer. Saying goodbye was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Ed was there with me when she passed on. She is greatly missed!!!!!!!!!!"

We've known Bootsie and her mom since we've been surfing the internet and have become such good friends. Not many of the ol' gals and guys left of the original crowd. Lilly, Snuitje and Fafnir are it I believe.

We are so sad for Julia's (and ours too!) loss.

Trying it on for size

My little kitten head is still too small for this pumpkin hat. I'm sure mom will bug the heck out of me as I grow to see when it finally will fit. I'm really getting nervous. I heard her say this is the last picture she has of me. That only means one thing. The blinding flashy box will come out and I'll have to humor her. What a kitten must do to keep her momma happy and amused!

Bunny Ears

I'm not quite big enough for the Bunny Ears yet, but I look too cute anyway.

It's a "kitten thing" what can I say?

Getting ready for the "hunt".

Okay, I take one piece of my dry food out of the bowl, drop it and bat it around trying to catch it like I would a real mousie in the outside world.

My favorite part of the game is when I get it underneath the bowl holder and create quite the challenge for me. Us kittens need to keep our hunting skills sharp, right?

Just the right size

Thanks to Auntie Holly I'm staying nice and warm this morning. When we got up it was 38F outside! BRRRR!!! Momma has to dig out a winter coat because she's going to watch her nephew's 9:00 am football game. BRRRR!!!

My first taste of the Nip

Hmmmm...what's this?

Yummy! Tastes pretty good!

I was a good girl and ate all the nip. Now what? Momma says I'm still too young to understand what it's all about. But it sure was tasty and I hope she gives me some more again soon.

Printer problems

How good are you at diagnosing computer-related problems??

What would be the first thing you might think if a User called and told you they were having problems with their printer?

Issue: Whenever I print, the paper comes out wrinkled, crumpled and even shredded! Sometimes the ink is wet and smeared.

Now, make your diagnosis then click on the video.

And, no, this is not Lilly. heeheehee!

What a change in the weather!

Momma has put Auntie Holly's blankie on top of me because the weather here in ChiTown has turned very Fallish. Until I get all my winter furs and big girl kitty fat it's important she keep me nice and warm in the cool weather. Anycat want to join me?

R.I.P. sweet little Herman

My good friend John posted on one of the cat message boards we frequent the loss of this little guy.
From John: "I lost little Herman last night. He'd been playing and eating so much yesterday, but last night he started going downhill rapidly. I called the emergency vet, but they never called back. Herman was in my arms looking up at me and I was whispering how much I loved him when he slipped away. Been a pretty rough time here. John "
We will be lighting a candle for little Herman tonight to help light his way over the Bridge. Hugs and purrs to you, John, and the rest of your furries who will be missing him too.

Pink is definitely my color don't you think?

It goes so nicely with my pink toesies and nose.

That can't be comfortable!

I wonder if Laila thinks by sleeping on/in my shoes, it will keep me from going to work and leaving her alone during the day.

We're worn out!

Mom's two nieces, Katie and Kelly, came over yesterday afternoon for a visit and played with us. We had so much fun! They have kitties too so they know how to play with us. In fact, Lilly use to live with them but their kitty, Toodie, didn't like Lilly so Lilly came to live with mom and has lived here ever since.

We slept on our "one of many" beds for many hours recharging our batteries. We hope they come see us again very soon!

Christmas in September!

WOW! A package came just for me!

Auntie Holly and the Boyz sent me a pet store!

How did they know I love pink?

Mom says she's never seen toys like this before.

So far this tunnel and chirping mouse are my favorites!

Thank you so much for these awesome gifts!!! That was the nicest thing anyone has done for me (except for the nice lady who trapped me out in the wilds) and it makes me so very happy! You have been such a great friend to our mom and us over the years! Cat people are very special and we are so glad we found you out there in cyber space! Hugs, purrs and head butts to you and all your furries!!! Love, Laila, Lilly and our mom!

Rainy Friday

Chillin' on mom's dresser.

What's with all these cats?

"No special reason" present

It took me a minute to figure out how this cool toy worked.

Note to self: be careful not to get paws stuck.

Double decker fun!

Good work Cousin Bailey!!!

Dead mouse.

Bailey, the great Mouse Hunter.

My niece, Katie, IM'd me this morning and here is a condensed version about the pictures above. "Bailey killed a mouse. Bailey wouldnt sit for the picture but I took a picture of the mouse. I saw it bolt last night and I freaked. Wouldn't even get off the couch. She had him pretty cornered last night. Came down this morning and she was sitting on the stairs. She ran ahead of me and at the bottom of the stairs there was a little dead mouse. I gave her treats. I wonder if she was trying to bring it up stairs or she killed it right there. She is really proud of herself. The last time we had a mouse she just stared at it."
Good work Bailey!!! This is also the little kitty who literally stole a piece of ham out of my mouth and wouldn't give it back! Hahaha!

Canoli kitty

Now what is she doing?

I guess I'll humor her and let her have her fun.

Enough already!

One thing I've learned in my short life here on earth is to be cooperative and let mom do what she wants and soon it will be over then I get lots of lovin' and treats for being such a good girl. I know she would never do anything to hurt me either in these little games she plays with me but if it brings a smile or laugh it's all worth it!
