Saturday Caturday

Mom thought she better post a picture of us in case anyone has forgotten what we look like since Angel has sort of hogged our blog this week. We think Mom is gonna get that flashy box out and take more pictures of him as she's running out.

Angel loves laying on the rug in the kitchen. We think he's lying in wait for some foods to drop to the floor.

Formerly Feral Friday

Angel and I share a common bond being that we were both feral in our start to life. Angel was born in a barn on a farm in July of 1997 and came to live with his Mommie when he was four months old. And I was a very scairty wild little feral 6 week old kitten living out in the wild. Can you tell we love living inside now?

Last night was the first time Angel ever played THoE (thundering herd of elephants)! He and Minchie were chasing each other all over and Mom was getting such a kick out of watching them. For such a BIG Mancat, that orange boy can really move!

Thirteen pounds + four

Mom has had to stop feeding us our stinky goodness on the tray and has moved it up to the counter. Angel came barreling through and gobbled up all of Laila's and we were sure mine was next. Mom says he weighs something like 17 pounds but does eat a diet food but while he is up here with us on vacation, he's eating our foods too.

Someone asked how long Angel will be staying with us. At least a week more, maybe more. The longer he stays, he more Mom says she's not giving him back. If anything happens to his Mommie, he gets to live with us. We thinks it even written down on papers somewhere to make sure.

Oh, yeah, Angel's Mommie is spending the night with us tonight because she's having a procedure done today and will be knocked out and can't stay alone. Slumber party!

Tummy and toesies Tuesday

The only tummy Mom could find for today
is Angel's with his toesies thrown in for good measure.

Mom says thanks for all the birthday wishes! She had a wonderful time in the Chicago Loop on top of the John Hancock building yesterday. We will post a picture or two at a later date. She and her sister froze their little hinees off down there! Sophie, did you see them walking around down there? They were the very touristy looking ones. Ha ha ha!

Mancat Monday Guest and a Birthday

For some reason I am obsessed with sniffing Angel's furs.
He's being very patient with me and putting up with it.
And he has a very cool Harley Davidson collar which really makes him look very Mancatly. Hey, with a name like Angel, he needs all the help he can get! Angel is a former barn cat and everyone thought he was a she so they named him Angel. Then the vet told them she was a he but they decided to keep the name Angel anyway.

Oh, yeah, today is Mom's birthday. She is being abducted by her sister and taken downtown to the John Hancock building and having lunch on the 95th floor at the Signature Room. Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Saturday Caturday

This cat bed use to be Angel's but he never used it so Mom bought it from his Mom a few years back. Here Laila is making sure he doesn't do anything bad to HER bed.

We got maybe 3-4 inches of snow last night so Mom is not a happy camper!

Friday friends

Here I am keeping Angel's blankie nice and warm for him.

Here we are having a Mancat pow-wow.

Watch out, Laila is heading this way.

Don't worry, Angel, I'll protect you from my vishus sister.

Angel is giving Laila his best laser eyes showing her he's not afraid of her. I'm keeping her at bay and trying to get her to stop the hissing. I really think she's just jealous that Angel is taking away my time with her. She's very possessive of me. Girls!!!

We have a guest

Auntie Dee who is one of our neighbors is having wood floors installed in her condo so her kitty, Angel, will be staying with us a while. Until he gets use to us Mom is keeping him in the bedroom.

Angel is under the bed and I am on guard to make sure nothing happens to him and to keep him from being scairt.

Angel came out to use his litter and grab a bite but then saw Mom at the bedroom door with that evil flashy box so he scrambled back under the safety of the bed. Laila doesn't really know what to make of him but I love having another Mancat in the house with me.

Spring fever

First off, yesterday's toesies were Laila's.
Thanks to one and all for trying to guess whose toesies they were.

This picture was taken last week when we had all those nice warm days and the windows were open. We were just glued to them taking in all the smells we'd forgotten. Thanks Mom!

Toesday Tuesday

Now, whose little toesie could this be?

Mancat Monday

Don't even think of trying to steal my catnip candy cane
or I'll get you with my laser eyes.

Sunday, February 15, 2009


Since we don't have an Easy Like Sunday Morning picture (that can only mean the evil flashy box will be busy this week!) we are going to show you a few pictures Mom took yesterday when she went to see the Lipizzaner Stallions. These are about the only pictures she took that turned out and is crabilating about getting a new camera.

These horsies are absolutely gorgeous and so white they blinded her eyes.

This was the biggest horsie and just loved showing off his impersonation of "Hi ho Silver!"

And here they all were at the end performing their last dance.
If these beautiful creatures ever come to your town, our Mom highly recommends your Mom's go to see them.

Happy Valentine's Day


A very special thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for our beautiful graphic of us. We couldn't figure out what to post and she saved the day and came to our rescue.!

We wish everyone a wonderful day with their special Valentines.
We consider all of you our special Valentine!

Formerly Feral Friday

Laila! Geesh, you're killing me sis with all your heavy furs!

Mommy's little angels.

This Formerly Feral little girl just adores her brofur!

Mancat Monday

I'm always trying to jump up on Mom's lap or on the desk when Mom is on the computer. I'm very attached to my Mom and need to be as close to her as possible at all times.

Well, this time (again!) I really did a number on Mom's arm jumping over her to get to the keyboard. I really hurted her bad and it was bleeding lots. So she washed it out real good and put the hydrogen peroxide and wrapped her arm in towels and it finally stopped bleeding.

Note the scar just to the right. Another wound from me that has healed but left a scar. I have a feeling I'm do for a good nail trimming.

Laila's vet visit

Here I am up in the front seat with Mom. Note that I am buckled in with the seatbelt too.

Here I am all scairt and trying to hide underneath the cabinet so they don't see me.

Dr. Jen is getting a little too personal with my belleh. Me and all my furs weighed in at 12 pounds 13 ounces.

Here she's checking out my heart. Yep, she said it was beating.

This is Dr. Jen and I back in July of 2007 when I was a 10 week old baby kitten. Here you can see how little I was back then and how much I have growed.

Boy, am I glad that is all over. I got an A+.

V-E-T time!

Today I have to go to the V-E-T in the PTU for my annual checkup. Maybe if I don't look at Mom she won't see me and she'll forget.

A big thank you to our buddy Jimmy Joe for awarding us this cool award! His Mom Bean has been very busy so we are truely honored they found the time to acknowledge us.

Formerly Feral Friday

This formerly feral little girl is just gonna "hang" today.

Thankful Thursday

Laila is thankful she has her tunnel to hide in.

EEK! This is our 666th post!!!

New furrends

Yesterday Mom went to her friend's house to help her get set up with that evil Facebook all us cats complain about. Her friend has two kitties and a doggie.

Here is Colby helping and putting his two cents in.

Maguire preferred to stay in the bedroom napping and letting Colby snoopervise.

Niki was a great distraction help. She looked very fashionable in her Harley Davidson hat.

Mom!!! What's going on here? Mom said they were doing everything they could to distract her and get her to pay attention to them.

Mom had a lot of fun and wanted to bring all of them home with her but her friend wouldn't agree.
