Winter storm warning!

Hurry home Mom!!!

Lilly's fasination with water

Here she is drinking out of the bucket. How unladylike!

Now she's testing the temperature to make sure it's to her liking.

In the past week two water mains have broken due to the bitter cold and we've had our water shut off to fix the problem. When that happens Mom fills a bucket so that she can use the toilet if she needs to. But Lilly thinks she fills the bucket just for her!

Halloween kitty

I am so floofy and big when I do my Halloween kitty impurrsonation that Momma couldn't get me all in the picture.

It's been a long time

Mom said it's been a long time since Lilly showed any interest in the bathroom sink. Being the good sister I am, I let her enjoy a few minutes. She loves to drink the water right from the faucet, unlike me, who is scairt of it. I much prefer to lick the remnants off the bowl.

As you can see, Lilly is way too big to fit in the sink like I can.

Yay! Mom is back home!

Lilly took this picture of me depressed as no one was here to turn the faucet on so I could lick the water off the sink and underneath the faucet while Mom was gone. Oh, woe is me! Boohoohoo!

Hi Mom! I'm so glad you are back with us. We missed you soooooo very much! Now, can you PLEASE turn the water on for me?

Wayward kitty finally back home

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Some kitty math: How many lives did little tabby Gracie Mae use up when she crawled into her owner's suitcase, went through an airport X-ray machine, got loaded onto a plane, thrown onto a baggage belt and mistakenly picked up by a stranger far from home?
"She's got to be at four or five now," Seth Levy said after his 10-month-old pet was returned Sunday by a kind stranger who went home to Fort Worth, Texas, with the wrong bag and Gracie inside to boot.
The last time Levy's wife, Kelly, saw Gracie was before she took her husband to the airport. The 24-year-old went back to her house in Palm Beach Gardens late Friday to find the bottom step, where Gracie would usually be waiting, empty.
She tore the house apart looking for the cat, who had been spayed just days before. She and her dad took out bathroom tiles and part of a cabinet to check a crawl space and papered the neighborhood with "lost cat" signs.
Then she got a phone call.
"Hi, you're not going to believe this, but I am calling from Fort Worth, Texas, and I accidentally picked up your husband's luggage. And when I opened the luggage, a cat jumped out," Kelly Levy quoted the caller saying.
Rob Carter said he made it home with the suitcase before realizing it wasn't his -- and there was a big surprise inside.
"I went to unpack and saw some of the clothes and saw it wasn't my suitcase," he said. "I was going to close it, and a kitten jumped out and ran under the bed. I screamed like a little girl."
Carter said that he eventually was able to get the cat to come out from under the bed.
"In the morning, I got close enough to see its collar and the phone number on it," he said. "So I called the number and got a hold of the crying wife of the traveler."
The tabby made the 1,300-mile trip home on an $80 plane ticket. Carter said he considered keeping the cat before he knew she had a home.
"We were going to name it Suitcase," he said.

Well, we are a very unhappy bunch of kitties. Mom is abandoning us again! She says she'll only be gone one night so I guess we can somehow manage. She got invited to attend a Creative Memories scrapbooking regional convention at a local resort. This can only be bad news. She'll probably be raiding our food/toy fund to finance new products in the coming months. Boohoohoo!

My favorite spot

Either I'm getting bigger or the top of the cat tree is shrinking, because it's not as roomy as it use to be. This is where I sleep a lot especially at night.

Another favorite spot

This is another one of my favorite spots to keep warm. Notice I hang around the heat registers a lot.

Staying warm

This is one of Lilly's favorite spots to stay warm. She has been spending a lot of time back there lately. It finally warmed up into the 20's yesterday but we now have three inches of snow on the ground and this afternoon the temps are going to drop again. Boohoohoo!

Roomba's cool new house

Here's the cool new house the nice lady, Andrea, dropped off. In fact yesterday when Mom was there feeding Roomba and taking this picture, Andrea stopped by to check on him too. She'd been there earlier to put food in his bowl and told Mom she knows he's been using the house, which she thought so too. Boy, that is one spoiled kitty! I'm starting to get very jealous! She's going to be dropping off some hay today to put inside for him and talk about trapping him to get him fixed, whatever that is. I didn't know he was broken. Poor Roomba! No wonder he is so spoiled!

-7 actual temp, -22 wind chill!!!

BRRRR!!!! You cannot believe how cold it is outside! We don't know for a fact, we're just going on what Mom said, but we know she would never lie to us. The only reason she will be going out today is to feed Roomba and buy me more canned stinky goodness. That's our Mom! What she won't do for us furries.

A nice lady on Friday brought a really cool feral shelter she had an extra of for Roomba. Mom thinks he's been using it because the food she put in the top "bunk" of it was gone and when she showed up to feed him yesterday she said she heard him mewing in the bushes and it was taking him longer than usual to come to her so she's thinking he was winding his way down out of his new house. Mom said she'll take her camera with her today to get a picture of it.

Camouflage kitty

See how well I blend into our recliner? Mom says she bought it with me in mind. I rarely lay here much preferring the matching couch. This is one of Laila's favorite spots when Mom is here watching tv.

You can't get me!

I amaze Mom that I can still fit underneath the dresser...all ten pounds of me!

Swiffer tail

Here I am resting after using my floofy Swiffer tail to dust the coffee table. See how nice and shiny it is once again? Mom gives me lots of Temptations as my payment for helping her with the housework.

Snug as a bug

My pink towel matches my pink nose.

My turn to post!

Lilly here. Mom made the mistake of leaving the camera on the floor so I took advantage of the opportunity and snapped my picture since my bratty little sister, Laila, hogs OUR blog all the time! Looks like I need Mom's help in getting all of my furry self in the frame. My legs are really much longer than they appear here. Have a great weekend efurrycat!

Cyclops Kitty

Very funny, Mom! Anything for a photo-op!

Mystery solved

It's a steering wheel cover! It's made out of sheepskin and silky soft just like me. Mom says it's like having me with her during the times she isn't home. She doesn't even need gloves when she drives now.

A late Monday Mystery

Can anyone guess what I am sniffing? It's the same color as me and just as soft. That's why Mom bought it.

Monday, January 7, 2008

A day like yesterday only comes around once in 100 years or so.

We had record setting temperatures of 60F/16C here yesterday. All the snow is pretty much gone. Mom has all the windows open right now airing out what she claims are kitty farts. MOM!!!

We were very happy to see her last night on her return from her scrapbooking weekend. No pictures of us were scrapbooked as she worked on her Ireland trip. Auntie Dee from downstairs came up and visited which we loved. She takes such good care of us! Mom says she only has one more overnighter this month then she's done for a while. Yay!

Blogging with Mom

Here we are working on our daily blog. I'm still too young and inexperienced to be trusted alone on the computer. Mom is locking up the computer for a few days because she's abandoning us again! Geesh! We can't wait until she stops this and stays home to concentrate 100% on us again! She says she's going to a scrapbooking retreat. We'll just see how much work she gets done.

Silky, shiny furs

Here I am after a wonderful combing by Mom. We are both lucky she loves to comb/brush kitties and I love to be combed/brushed! Lilly gets jealous and horns in sometimes as she loves it too.

Happy Mew Year!

Once again Mom abandoned us on a holiday! She went to Cousin Gizmo and Sushimi's house. Here she's letting them have some shrimp. Do you think she thought to bring some home for us? NO!

We had another snow storm. Here is Cousin Lady playing in it. Boy, we sure are glad we don't live out there anymore!

This is what Mom's car looked like after the snow was all over. Poor thing isn't use to being parked outside.
