Happy Halloween!

Minchie is thrilled to have his pumpkin hat on again this Halloween.

Imagine the shock we all had when we opened up the Halloween card from JoJo and Sammy and saw the kitty on the card had the identical pumpkin hat on as Minchie in the top picture!

Minchie sniffing the wonderful JoJo and Sammy smells on his card.

Thank you to JoJo and Sammy for this cute card!

We hope everyone has a fun and safe HALLOWEEN!

Photo Hunters - Dark

Today's Photo Hunter theme is dark.

On Friday mornings for the past 4 weeks, mom has been going to her church to help out with child care for the sticky beans while their moms attend a study on effective parenting. The church has a school and one of the hallways is decorated with Midnight Cats.

Aren't these just the cutest dark cats you've ever seen?

Mom squees up a storm every time she sees this wall.

Friends Friday

Here is what our friend, JoJo, looked like when she was a itteh bitteh kitteh. No wonder her mommie and daddy fell in love with her at first sight! Our mom will be taking care of her and Sammy again starting Sunday for 5 days while her daddy travels to the other side of the world again.

Two cuties on Thursday

We had a special request today from our good friend, Kiddy, who doesn't live too far from us, that she wanted to see me, Laila, in a post. Minchie has been a hog with the posts the past few days. So, for your viewing pleasure, Kiddy, here I am! Sorry my brother is in the picture too, but Mom didn't have one of just me. Think it's time she empty out that camera of new pictures she's taken. Stay warm Kiddy! It's gonna be like winter out there today!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Since Mom is going off today to Chicago and abandoning us, this is where I'll be if you need me.

And JoJo and Sammy will be doing the same. Mom said their daddy is going on another business trip on the other side of the world, this time to a different country she'd never even heard of. She will be taking care of them starting next Sunday thru the following Thursday.

Friday Flashback

This Friday Flashback goes back to July 17, 2007.

We have hundreds of cat toys in the toy box, but this is their favorite.

The faceoff.

Everyone in their corners.

Laila trying her darndest to get Lilly to play with her. Right after this was taken, Lilly expressed her displeasure with her little bratty sister being in her face.

Big thunder, lightening and rain storm last evening. Laila doesn't seem to be bothered by them. She actually was sitting by the sliding glass door watching all the lightening and rain hitting the glass. But open a plastic bag and she runs. Go figure!

Hello Mr. Leaf

Mom brought in one of the leaves from the balcony. She just wanted Laila to see that they aren't evil and that she doesn't have to go flying over to the slider each time they move. Mom is just scairt that Laila will one day push threw the screen.

Laila is still very cautious and not trusting of this evil introoder.

Being the peace loving mancat of the house, I welcomed the evil introoder leaf and just walked away.

Hmmmm. What does JoJo spot up on the end table?

Why, it's Mr. Fishy! She really doesn't care about Mr. Fishy, all she cares about is drinking his waters.

JoJo and Sammy are in trouble! They knocked down the phone in this picture and now their phone isn't working. We think they should become members of the Naughty Kitty Club with us!

Happy Tock-Tober Birthday Derby!

It’s Derby's birthday today! In celebration of this day we wish him a happy birthday by showing our tocks!

Minchie has no shame.

Laila decided to clean up her tock shot this year.


Toesies Tuesday

Laila likes to lay here like a possum and trip Minchie as he walks by.

Sammy walking back to the bedroom to wait for her daddy to get back home this afternoon.

This is JoJo with her tummy, toesie and tail for the world to see.

JoJo and Sammy's daddy gets back from his business trip on the other side of the world this afternoon, so Mom only has one more visit. She is sad that she won't get to play with JoJo and get all those snuggles and kitty kisses. But Mom knows they will be very happy and excited to have their daddy back.

Mom, if you would clean off this shelf it would make a wonderful place for a nap!

JoJo is all packed and ready to go home with Mom. Just kidding Dan!!!

This is how JoJo and Sammy spend their Easy Sundays.

I see you little mousie!

Maybe I can get you from this side.

So close, yet so far. Minchie! Instead of just sitting there doing nothing, HELP ME!!!

Sammy, the monorail kitty.

This picture was not taken by Mom as Sammy is still not coming near her and now she is hiding when Mom goes downstairs to visit. She is sad, we are happy. hehehe! Her daddy emailed this one to us.

Thankful Thursday

We are very thankful that Mom can help out JoJo and Sammy's daddy while he is on his 10 day business trip on the other side of the world.

Here is a closeup of JoJo. Mom says she wants to steal her as she is so much fun and is just all over Mom when she is there.

JoJo is quite the playing machine.

Sammy is a very cautious little girl. At least this time she's out and about and not in hiding like the last time Mom cat sat. We think she knows how obsessed Mom is with calico kitties and is scairt she'll steal her from her daddy.

Mancat Monday

Here I am guarding the chair Mom sits in to put her makeup on. Since she lost her jobbie last year, she doesn't sit at it every day like she use to. But when she does, I like to hang with her in the corner and snoopervise.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

It got up to 88 degrees here in ChiTown yesterday and another 80 degree day is forecast for today. So we are just gonna chillax here on the floor to stay cool. They say cool air falls, so we are ready and waiting for it to fall and hit our hot furs. Mom was sweating like a pig and finally caved and turned the a/c on for a few hours to cool the place off.

Also, remember JoJo , the kitty whose Mom died of the nasty "C" two months ago? Well, her daddy has to go to India for business tonight and will be back Oct. 19 so Mom is gonna be taking care of her and her sister, Sammy. Mom had never touched Sammy before but yesterday was the first time she was able to. She is a gorgeous calico girl and you know how Mom is just insane over calico kitties! Hopefully she won't hide this time when she goes downstairs to take care of them. She told JoJo's daddy Sammy just may be missing when he gets back home. So be prepared to see some pictures of these two in the coming days.

Formerly Feral Friday

Laila is on leaf patrol. She guards the house so none get inside. So far, none ever have.
