Photo Hunters - Public

Today's Photo Hunters theme is public.

When Mom went to Ireland three years ago, she took a picture of this public toilet in the Village of Cong, where they filmed the movie "The Quiet Man" with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara.

Here is another picture of a public toilet. This was taken at Moriarty's - Gap of Dunloe
Industries in Killarney, Ireland.

This public toilet is located in the Irish port of Cobh, formerly known as Queenstown, the last port the Titanic called at on April 11, 1912.

And these toilets are NOT public! MOM! Put that flashy box away so we can take care of business!

Christmas in July

This year we partnered with our very good friends, The Kool-Kittie-Krew, for Christmas in July! We were so excited!

Checking out the package the man in the blue shorts brought us. When he came to deliver it, he rang from the lobby and told Mom "Hi Peggy, this is Tom the mailman. I have a package for your cats." He knows us very well as we get lots of packages and cards throughout the year. More than Mom! MOL!

Stuffed to the brim!

"Mom, I think we won the lottery!"
We kept very busy all evening checking everything out and smelling all the smells of Skeeter, Pandora, Cricket and King. They live in the Pocono Mountains so everything had a very clean smell to it.

Even Mom got presents. A very wonderful smelling little jar candle, a Pocono Mountain magnet (which is already on the frig!) and Pocono Mountain key chain.

Even Angel got presents!!! Mom went downstairs to give him his. He was very excited too!

Very cool toys!

And that is really some powerful catnip! It knocked him out almost immediately.

Thank you so much good friends for all of our wonderful presents! We love everything and now will have lots to play with while we stay inside keeping cool from the horrible hots outside.

Also, please keep the Mom of The Kool-Kittie-Krew in your thoughts and prayers. She just found out she is facing more surgery in a few months.

Laila loves to lick her pawbreaker catnip ball.

Taking a break from all the nip rolled up into this ball.

This is the kind of candy we love!

Mancat Monday

Minchie's favorite thing is getting scritches. Mom needs to get some current pictures of him taken as she's run out and is having to go into her archives. This is the day she went and brought Minchie home from the shelter.

Laila can't quite fit on the top of the cat tree with Minchie.
Parts of her are hanging over in order for her to fit.

Frootbat Friday

Here's Minchie showing off his frootbats (and whiskers!) the day Mom went and picked him up at The Buddy Foundation. Those frootbats don't miss much!

Thankful Thursday

My sweet ladycat and Turkish Princess, Baby Patches, surprised me this week with a box of goodies for me for my birthday!

OMC! I can actually smell her wonderful kitty smells on everything in here!

Thank you so much, my love, for the wonderful gifts, card and freeze dried chicken breast treats. You are such a sweet love for thinking of me on my birthday. Purrs and nosetaps!

Happy Birthday Minchie!

Today I am six years young! And it's also my former Daddy's birthday. Happy Birthday Dad!

Got a birthday card the other day. Would you say this is THE most appropriate card for me, Minchie "The Donald"!

It's from my friend Kiddy! I've already been sung to by Mom many times already and gotten lots of extra breakfast treats. So I'm gonna nap the day away and rest up for the big party tonight. Come one, come all!

Thankful Thursday

Mom found this beautiful huge box down in the garage in the recycling dumpster and brought it up for us.

We love to play with Mr. Mousie in and around the box.

Here you can tell how sturdy the sides are. We love recycled boxes! And as soon as we destroy them, back into the recycling dumpster they go.

Thanks, Mom, for finding the greatest boxes for us!

Tail Tuesday

We are very proud of our floofy tails.
Minchie's looks like his came from a coon skin cap.

Mancat Monday

Today's blog will give you your long awaited Angel fix. Mom drove him and his mom to the vet Saturday for his annual check up.

In March he weighed in at 19 pounds and today he weighed in at 17 pounds! His diet is really working to everyone's delight!

Lots of furs were coming out of him so Mom was brushing him a lot. This is what she got out of him!

The whole clinic must have been wondering what all the laughing was that was going on in their exam room. Poor Angel was not at all happy, but knew enough not to fight it and it would soon be over once our mom got her pictures.

Then Mom got creative and made a "The Donald" toupee for Angel.

Meet Angel "The Donald"

Dr. Mindy was very pleased with his weight loss.

By the time they left, the room was pretty well covered in orange furs. Angel got a good checkup but his asthma is a little worse so his transdermal medical will be double now.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

We're gonna hang in here on the nice cool tile while the hots is going on outside.

Silly Saturday

This picture was taken back in the summer of 2007 when Laila was a baby kitten. Mom had her wrapped up in a small lambs wool cat bed. We think she looks like a cannoli.

Formerly Feral Friday

Once in awhile Mom has Canadian bacon for breakfast.

One of the best things about being a formerly feral girl is that I always get a few morsels!
