Friday Flashback

Today's flashback is from February 2009 and titled


Angel and I share a common bond being that we were both feral in our start to life. Angel was born in a barn on a farm in July of 1997 and came to live with his Mommie when he was four months old. And I was a very scairty wild little feral 6 week old kitten living out in the wild. Can you tell we love living inside now?

Last night was the first time Angel ever played THoE (thundering herd of elephants)! He and Minchie were chasing each other all over and Mom was getting such a kick out of watching them. For such a BIG Mancat, that orange boy can really move!

Thankful Thursday

 We love when Mom brings out the tube of Petramalt for hairballs.

 Minchie's turn.

 Now it's Laila's turn.

 We really are good about sharing and taking our turns.

Our Chicago Blackhawks are going to the next round on the way to the Stanley Cup!  They had a great series against Wally, Ernie and Zoey's Detroit Red Wings.

Happy Memorial Day

Today we honor and remember those who served in the military and who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

At all the National Cemeteries all the graves will be marked with small American flags. Our Mom's Mom and Dad are both buried here in Milwaukee, WI and their graves will be decorated also. They both served in WWII.

Headstone of Mom's mom.  Mom's dad's name is on the other side.  They are buried together.

Photo Hunt - Copper

Today's theme is "copper".

This is the cute "copper" Mom did a four hour ride-along with when she took a Citizen's Police Academy class five years ago.  He didn't mind the pictures because one of his female "copper" co-workers was a scrapbooker like Mom.

This is the cute "copper" in his squad car dropping Mom back at her car when the four hours was over.  Mom had so much fun because the "copper" was a beat officer in the beat where Mom's day hunting job was and helps out in the beat where we live too.  Lots of inside info!

Friday Flashback

Today's flashback is from January 2009 and was a

Mom went out and bought a bag of red pipe cleaners and makes all these cool toys for us out of them. My purrsonal favorite is when she bends them into the shape of a fish. I bat them all over the house. Every couple of days she makes a new one for me.

 Laila checking out the catnip duckie Mom won in the last auction for ML.

 Got me some powerful catnip on this dude.

 Let the licking begin!

 Starting to feel the mind altering affects of the catnip.

 Help!  I can't get up!

 Thanks a lot, Laila, you didn't save much catnip for me!

Womancat Wednesday

Laila just loves her Cat Hair Magnet.  As you can see by the bristles, it gets used a lot.  Lucky for her Minchie steers clear of it.  Minchie is a very smart boy!

Friday Flashback

Today's flashback is from December 2008 and was titled


We have furrends who live in Helena, MT that feed the ferals who show up on their big deck. This guy is Jupiter and Mom almost fell off her chair this morning when she saw his picture. At first she thought I'd escaped and went to visit them. We are hoping David will feel sorry for him and try to get him inside. Maybe once he sees how much he looks like me he will!
