Mancat Monday

This is the spot where I snoopervise Mom to keep up with all the happenings of the CB. It's also the first website we go to each day.

Starting tomorrow afternoon, we are under a blizzard watch. "They" say we can get 18-24+ inches of the white stuff. Mom has to be out most of the day tomorrow to take our auntie for an outpatient surgical procedure so she's purraying it waits until they get back.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Don't you just love this wonderful sleeping nest Mom made for me?
Oh, please don't make me get up. May I please have my stinky and crunchy goodness and treats brought to me here today?

Photo Hunters - Standing

Today's Photo Hunters theme is standing.

Before Minchie came to live with us from The Buddy Foundation (like I did too), Mom brought home some of his furs she stole from him for me to smell and get use to. Here I am standing to get a good whiff of this curious smell.

Formerly Feral Friday

So, what do you all think of my new Costco box?

I guess being formerly feral is why I don't appreciate the finer things in life like cushy cat beds and pillows for my head. Give me a good ol' cardboard box any day!

I'm spying on Mom as she sits at the computer.

What I won't do for treats!

Tober the Cat guessed right yesterday about what was on top of my head. The cap from this container. It kind of reminded Mom of a little kitty bellhop cap and wanted to see how cute I'd look with it on. What a mancat won't do for some treats!

Temptations on Tuesday

Mom finally found the new catnip flavor of Temptations that just came out. Of course, she had to buy us a bag to see what we thought.

We both give it a two paws up!!! These are now our favorite!!!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

I'm keeping the bed warm for Mom to crawl back into. She has been sick since yesterday with chills, sweats, coughs and hurty head. Laila and I will be very busy today taking real good care of her. We hope she stays awake for the big Bears vs. Packer game today here in ChiTown. A big win for our Bears would make her feel all better!

Photo Hunters - Hands

Today's Photo Hunters theme is hands.

Here are pictures of Mom using her hands to give our sister, Lilly (RIP), her daily sub-q fluids.

Pulling up skin to make the "tent".

Sticking the needle in the base of the "tent" underneath the skin.

Mom adjusting the IV tube.

It's in and Lilly doesn't even know what's going on.

Such a good girl!

These frootbats are turned on 24/7.

We are in a deep freeze today! -6F/-20C when we got up this morning! Wind chills of -20F/-29C. Good day to snuggle under the covers!

Thankful Thursday

We are thankful we have each other.

Tummy and Toesies Tuesday

Laila loves having her tummy combed by Mom. She makes quite the pest of herself until Mom gives in. And she must be combed in her Costco box. She loves to squirm around in it so Mom can get every fur.

Mancat Monday

Not many of you know my full name is Minchie Meow. It took Mom a bit to realise why the Meow was part of my name. Being the Turkish Angora that I am and true to my breed, we love to meow A LOT!!! Just ask Baby Patches's Mom! There are days when it drives Mom crazy and no matter what she does, she can't get me to stop. I have a lot to say! I also love to sing arias for her in the evening that I'm sure the whole building we live in can hear.

This is the greatest cat bed. It comes with it's own built-in pillow. Later dudes!

Photo Hunters - Shadow

Today's Photo Hunters theme is shadow.

When Angel was living with us that year (almost a year ago he went back home!) he loved to lay in the morning sun. Today if he were to do that, because he's lost weight on his diet, his shadow wouldn't be nearly as big! We miss you buddy!

Friday Flashback

This Friday Flashback goes back to July 28, 2007.

Laila's trip to the vet.

Dr. Jen giving Laila a good looking over. She weighed in at 3 pounds 11 ounces.

Heart sounds good and strong.

Not too thrilled to be here, but dealing with it.

Such a trooper getting her shot.

Dr. Craig just had to stop in and meet the new little girl.

As soon as we walked in the front door and I announced who was here for her 10:30 visit, all the girls behind the reception desk jumped up with delight knowing a new little kitten was coming in. They all just squealed with delight and couldn't get over how beautiful she was. Of course, momma stood there very proud and Laila seemed to be enjoying all the attention. She got a clean bill of health except for a few little coccidia still showing up in her poopies. She'll be on an antibiotic for that for ten days. It's a liquid and administration of it did not go well for me at home later! Got most of it in her. Will have to bring the treats into the routine for the next administration tomorrow.

Tummy and Toesies Tuesday

Mom says that my tummy matches the snow that is coming down outside. We are under a Winter Advisory with 2 to 4 inches expected so that means Mom is going nowhere today. Yesterday she took Angel's Mom to the human V-E-T as she's been real sick. She has an infection that has gone into her sinuses. Angel has been very busy down there taking real good care of her.

Mancat Monday

This mancat is ready for spring!
We want to see green grass and sit in the window with the window wide open and smell the fresh air.

Purrfect day to hang in my cube. All the beans are complaining about how bitter cold it is outside so I'm taking their word for it and laying low.

Laila's Aunties

We hit a wall today as to what to post about, so we thought we'd show you pictures of Laila as an itteh bitteh kitteh with her two favorite aunties.

Mom's sister.

Angel's Mommie.

Friends Friday - ANGEL!

Finally! Pictures of Angel and how good he is looking on his diet.

Angel has his lasers on to make sure Mom doesn't have that nasty ol' PTU with her to take him to the V-E-T.

His nice and svelte backside.

And his handsome, svelte front side.

Angel is sending telepathic messages to Mom to fill up his food bowl.

Total concentration.

Showing Mom, with his eyes, where the food container is. Like she doesn't know! MOL!

The last ditch "PLEASE FEED ME!"

Mom stood her ground and didn't give in to Angel's hypnotic spell.

Thankful Thursday

Laila just loves laying on the blankie with Mom in the recliner. Her favorite spot is at the bottom where Mom always leaves a big spot for her.

Tummy and Toesies and Tail Tuesday - Oh My!

What a show off! Minchie needs a combing real bad but fights Mom each time she tries.

Mancat Monday and Judi Birthday Wishes

We are waiting for our ride to the big party going on over at Sammy and Andy's house to join in on the big birthday celebration for their mom, Judi.
