Tummy, toesies and tail Tuesday

Once again we have Angel who never lets Mom down with a shot for tummy, toesies and tail Tuesday. Here he's put a new twist on his tail. The Q Logo! She says she's going to work on getting shots of us this week with that flashy box thingee.

Mancat Monday

I am King of this house.

Angel hanging with his good buddy.

Mom slip and slided through the snow yesterday morning to the hospital emergency treatment center and got put on Augmentin for seven days. Already the bites are looking betters! She still had two years left on her tetanus shot she got back in 2001 from another cat bite so she didn't need another one of those. She is finally on the road to recovery, but the pills are making her very sleepy all the time. We are all getting along real well too.

Where did spring go?

Nine days into spring this is what we woke up to!
Mom says it looks like lumpy mashed potatoes.

Mom has decided to go to the hospital emergency treatment center today but wants to wait until the roads are in better shape. Her bitey isn't swollen but is pretty red so she thinks she should have it checked out. Of course these things always happen on the weekend, just like a few weeks ago when Mom got the shingles.

All quiet on the homefront

A huge thank you to everyone who offered encouraging words for our Momma yesterday with all her wounds from us. We don't know what got into us! I (Minchie) was just defending her from the bitey Angel put on her leg. She stayed home all day snoopervising us to be sure nothing crazy happened again. When Angel's Mom got home from her work she came up to babysit us while Mom went out and bought a Feliway plugin refill and get Chinese foods. So far we are all behaving again like nothing happened.

Here is a picture of the biteys on her leg.

Taken yesterday.

Taken this morning.

Mom will be seeing her friend who has a PhD in medicines today and will get her opinion if she thinks she needs to have it looked at by a doctor. We really don't think so, but she knows if that red starts spreading anymore she will have to.

Friday fiasco

The Mom here. This has been the morning from hell! First it started out with Laila freaking out for no reason on the kitchen counter and scratching up my right arm as she's hell bent on getting off.

Then as I was getting ready to help them with the blog Minchie decides he wants to walk over the keyboard onto my lap, as usual. Well, something happens and he gets freaked and is doing everything possible to get off me quick and with that he gets me on my left arm/hand and a good puncture wound on the right, not far from Laila's scratches earlier. I'm bleeding like a stuck pig and I'm screaming because it hurts like you know what. Run into the bathroom to start washing all the wounds out when all of a sudden an excruciating pain is coming from my right leg. Angel is down there biting me and attacking me! Well, I really go insane now and Minchie was right there and he and Angel start this horrible fighting and I'm trying to get them off each other, blood dripping everywhere. They chased each other all over fighting like this for a few minutes then Angel hightailed it under the couch.

Things are not good here right now. There are orange tuffs of fur all over. Glad I don't work today so I can keep an eye on things. Also have to keep a very close eye on the bite marks. I've already had to go to the ER because of a cat bite years ago.

At this point, not sure if Angel is going to get to stay here. We'll just see how it goes. And...no more Minchie on the computer desk and my lap while on the computer!

Thankful Thursday

Minchie is very thankful that Mom hasn't returned the crock pot to Angel's Mom yet that she borrowed to make the corned beef and cabbage dinner. He just loves to lay on it and take naps and keep an eye on who comes through the front door.

And of course, little Miss Laila Ali has the upper paw on Minchie.

Tummy, toesies and tail Tuesday

Mom can always count on Angel to come through for her for a Tummy Tuesday.

Easy like Sunday morning

I'm saving room for my sweet love, Baby Patches, to come join me in a Sunday afternoon nap. But really, any kitty is welcome to join me.

Minchie and Angel sharing a bite.

Angel's turn to put the sniffies on Minchie.

Formerly Feral Friday

Laila just loves to lay on the bed on sheet washing day. She loves the comfyness of the plumpy matress pad.

It's almost hard to see her here with all her white plumpyness.

Thankful Thursday

Mom is very thankful that Laila and I like having Angel living here with us for awhile. We would like it if he never went back home, but hims Mom would miss him too much. He has really fit in very well. He use to come up and stay once in awhile when the ChiTownTrio were alive and he and Cerise were real buddies. Lilly just growled and hissed at him all the time like she would all kitties. But she was old and not in the best of health. I don't know what it is about Angel, but I am sniffing him all the time and Mom thinks this is very weird.

Wordy Wednesday

Laila made it onto stuff on my cat again!

We is all plum tuckered out with all the celebrating of the green last night. Angel's Mom and Grandaddy came up for our traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner. They ate tons and what spilled on the floor Angel went around scarfing up. What a good "little" vacuum he is! Of course Laila, the scairty cat, kept her distance. I must say I made a pest of myself. When there are a lot of people around and I don't get Mom's undivided attention, I let her know it with loud meowing and making quite the pest of myself. We hope everyone had a fun day too.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Angel O'Rimm

McNamara's Band

Oh! Me name is McNamara, I'm the leader of the band.

Although we're few in numbers

We're the finest in the land.

We play at wakes and weddings

And at ev'ry fancy ball,

And when we play to funerals

We play the march from Saul.

Oh! The drums go bang,

And the cymbals clang,

And the horns they blaze away;

McCarthy pumps the old bassoon

While I the pipes do play;

And Hennessey Tennessee tootles the flute,

And the music is somethin' grand;

A credit to old Ireland is McNamara's band.

(This is just the first verse of the Irish song about our band)

Mancat Monday

Here I am showing my sweet love, Baby Patches, that I can touch my nose with my tongue. If this isn't a show of great mancatlyness I don't know what is!

Sunday, March 15, 2009

Easy like Sunday morning

I'm just laying here dreaming of my sweet love, Baby Patches.

I'm in my box hiding from the boys.

I'm the official guard cat today while these two sluff off their duties.

Saturday Caturday

Oh, yes, my catnip carrot that I haven't seen in awhile.

Must put the bitey on it real good.

I think Laila is eyeing my carrot. She better not get any ideas!

Formerly Feral Felines Feeling Friendly Friday

Well now, what have we here?

Looks like some cute little toesies to me.

Think I'll just settle down here in this spot.

Now that is one floofy plume Laila has there.

Minchie is so happy that he got the "seal of approval" from his former Dad regarding Baby Patches:

Dear Minchie: She is indeed a beautiful cat. Perhaps it is time for you to meet another Turkish Angora. I am sure she will like you very much and I can already imagine the loud conversations you will be having about fur care, whisker polish, blanket obsessions, and yoga poses during sleeping. :) former dad

I'm in love!!!

Baby Patches


Minchie here. Every day when we log onto the internets we check out the CB first to see what all is going on for the day. Today we read about a new member, Baby Patches, and guess what? She's a Turkish Angora, just like me!!! This is love at first sight peoples! Isn't she beautiful? And Mom is just obsessed with calico kitties so you just know she approves. I hope you will all go and visit Baby Patches and see for yourself just how gorgeous she is and that she is the one for me.

I hope my former Daddy approves too.

Cerise and Uncle Cyd

The little cutie is our sister-who-came-before-us, Cerise. She is about five months old here. And laying next to her is Cydney, a HUGE Himmie that was her cousin but they called Uncle Cyd. He was the kitty of Mom's sister.

See how big Uncle Cyd was? He is the reason Mom got Cerise.

Angel is still with us and we are loving every minute of it. Laila has even stopped the hissing at him. Mom also had to finally take his Harley Davidson collar off because I, Minchie, kept trying to chew it off and one day I had him pinned to the ground tying my best to get it and there was a bit of a issue so since it's off, there is peace and quiet again. I just wanted to be a Harley Davidson Mancat too!

Tummy and toesies Tuesday

For some reason Laila can only do sideways tummy and toesies shots.

Angel is always ready for tummy and toesies pictures.

There isn't a picture of Minchie today as Mom says she needs to get the evil flashy box out and stock up on those poses. NOOOO!!!!!

Mancat Monday

I love my M-Cats Club badge!!!

The two Mancat dudes hangin.

Mom has been having to keep a close eye on Angel as he's been sticking up for himself with that pesky sister of mine. Lots of hissing going on. She's a real bruiser, that wild feral girl, and poor Angel doesn't know how to play with her like I do. But for the most part we all get along great. It's great having another Mancat to hang with!

Easy like Sunday morning

It has been raining "cats and dogs" non stop all weekend so what better way to spend a Sunday. Actually, we did this pretty much all day Saturday too.

A very dear friend of ours, Calliope ("Vicious killer princess" ) was helped to the Bridge yesterday. At one point she lived very close to us then they all packed up and moved to Montana. We are very heartbroken for her family. Your memory will live on forever in our hearts precious one.
