 Laila is reflecting on the old year wondering what the new year will bring.

Cousin Bailey is on the road traveling to her new home in Florida with Mom's niece.  She is being a very good girl and loving the car ride.  We wish them a very safe trip.

Happy New Year!

We are wishing all of our friends a very safe and Happy New Year!  See everyone next year!

Formerly Feral Friday

It's hard to believe this cute "little" girl was once a tiny little feral kitten running around an apartment complex until caught by The Buddy Foundation.  Sadly, she was the only one of her siblings caught.  With a lot of patience and work, she adapted to the good life indoors.

Thankful Thursday

What a nice surprise to receive a Christmas package last week from our very good friends over at Jacqueline's Cat House.

Minchie's curiosity got the better of him.
OMC!  Look at all the goodies!
Laila has her eye on that baggie overflowing with mousies.  Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy and Daddy Cat also sent duplicates of what you see here for Angel!  How so sweet of them to think of him!  Mom hasn't gone downstairs to give them to him yet but will take pictures when she does.  Thank you so much for thinking of us at Christmas.  You are so sweet to think of us at Christmas.

Remember JoJo and Sammy that Mom cat sits for in our building?  Well, their daddy is going to Hawaii on vacation tomorrow and she will be taking care of them for 12 days, so you will be seeing some pictures of them in the days to come.

Tail Tuesday

Minchie's tail comes in handy to help keep his toesies warm.

Secret Paws Presents!

Mom finally let us open our Secret Paws package from our new friends, Penelope and Kozmo, of Cat From Hell's Blog.

Holy carp!  The box was stuffed with all kinds of goodies!!!
We sniffed and sniffed for quite some time all the interesting smells that came with it.  In fact, at one point, we started smacking each other around because we didn't want to share all the great toys and treats with each other.

Mom even got a present!  From Penelope and Kozmo's mom.  A calendar of her cat paintings!  Mom is so excited because this will be the calendar she keeps on our frig and will be able to see it every day!  Thank you so much for all the pawsome goodies and most of all we are thankful for the wonderful new friends we have made!

Today's Friday Flashback goes back to Oct. 6, 2007


I was hiding from mom and for some reason she found me right away. Boy, she is good!

Thankful Thursday

Laila is very thankful that Mom doesn't put up our Christmas tree anymore because she is terrified of it.  Mom says Laila is more important to her than any tree.  Plus, Mom just knows that I, Minchie, would climb it!

Toesies Tuesday

Toesies are very useful for bunny kicking and holding onto catnip toys.  Minchie does very well without thumbs!

Mancat Monday

 Each morning after Minchie has finished his breakfast he stands in front of the guest closet just staring and staring at Mom until she opens it for him.

This is where he sleeps the morning away.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Can this box BE any smaller!  Laila's current favorite place to sleep.

 We are so excited!  Our Secret Paws package came!

It's from Nellie and Kozmo of The Cat From Hell  

We like to wait until Christmas Eve or Christmas night to open ours.  We'll be back with pictures of what's inside.  We can't wait!  Thank you Nellie and Kozmo!

It's Caturday!

Minchie loves jumping up to high places.  This is about as high as it gets here!

Friends Friday

Angel's mom had to go out of town for business two days this week so our mom went down to feed him twice a day.  Mom was trying to get him to play last night before she fed him but would have nothing to do with playtime.  In desperation he turned on his lasers full blast to show her the way into the kitchen to get the food in his bowls stat!

Pink Fev-vers!

How's this for a fev-ver toy!

Tummy, Tail and Toesies Tuesday

Another great shot of Minchie on one of his ham-micks showing off his tail, tummy and toesies.  Mom says they should make these for humans.

Mancat Monday

Okay, Mom, I've been a good boy and let you take pictures of me and my bow tie (you may need to bigify picture to see it).  Please, please, please take it off now!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

This is how we'd like to be spending this Easy Sunday (minus watching that man on tv) but it's another day Mom is abandoning us.  She's been putting tons of miles on the metal monster this weekend, but that's okay, as long as we aren't in it in the PTU on the way to the vet!

Ess Kind of Caturday

I've been begging Mom to get me a second Ess scratcher since Minchie has two ham-micks.  Maybe Santa Claws will bring me one.

Friday Flashback

This Friday Flashback goes back to Oct. 2, 2007


Checking out my construction

Hey, this is cool!

Oh, dear me, now what do I do? I think I need to add more tunnels to make it stronger.

Lilly and I both guarding our ends.

We Need a Bigger Sink!

 Laila was maybe 6 months old when this picture was taken.

Now 4 1/2 years old, we think it's about time she realize she's too big to hang out IN the sink.

Toesies Tuesday

Laila uses her toesie to show everyone the cat hair magnet is HERS!  The cat hair magnet even acts as a magnet for little mousies!

Mancat Monday Guest

 Angel is not a happy camper.

 No wonder they call this a Prisoner Transport Unit!

Last Saturday Mom took Angel and his mom (who is a person with a disability) to the vet as his asthma was acting up a bit.  Dr. Mindy took a picture of his lungs and they were filled with fluid so he got stabbed with a steroid that works real fast in eliminating the fluid.  Mom will take him back tomorrow (while his mom works) for another stabbing of steroids that is longer acting.  We are keeping our paws crossed this helps, as it has in the past.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

This looks like a good spot for Laila to spend Easy Sunday today.  Mom was gone most of the day yesterday and will be gone again a good part of today so being Easy will help us pass the time until she gets home.

Photo Hunt - Ripped

This week's Photo Hunt theme is ripped.

Laila is loving laying on this ripped Lean Cuisine box.
"No, Mom, you make not take it and throw it away yet!"

Froot Bat Friday

"If you go to a CFA cat show, you will see the judges doing things to get the cat's undivided attention, with his or her ears perked up as high as possible on the cat's head. This is because one of the most defining points of a Turkish Angora is the ears. According to the Breed Standard, the ears are "large, wide at the base, pointed and tufted. Set closely together, high on the head, vertical and erect." 

Big froot bats...yup, this Turk's  got 'em!

Laila loves our multi levels for snoopervising outside.
