Happy Halloween!


Our buddies up in Wisconsin, Tucker, Benny and Sadie, of It's All About the Cats, did a post of them all wearing this cute Captain America shirt.  We expressed an interest in trying it on, so they sent it to us.

Mom knew it would fit me so I got elected.  So I guess this is my Halloween costume too.
Laila was very busy sniffing the curious smells on the shirt.  No way would it even go over her head.
Here I am balancing myself up next to the ESS because for some reason I only wanted to walk backwards with it on.  Mom was LOL'ing a bunch.
You can't tell, but here I'm walking backwards.
Thanks for cutting off my head, Mom!
Please get this thing off me!
Raspberries to you, Mom, for the embarrassment.
Finally she took it off!

I'd like to forward it to a new home for photographing and sharing on their blog. Who wants to give it a try? We will ship anywhere in the U.S. (note that the shirt is a small size.) Email us at lailaandminchie @ gmail. com (without the spaces) if you would like to participate and then forward it on to the next person (er, cat).

Womancat Wednesday

 Yes, I am very comfy.  Thank you for asking.

 It amazes Mom how I can curl up on this little two story condo for some serious snoozing.

That Will Teach You!

Just as Mom was going to take a picture of me with that evil flashy box, I stuck my tongue out.  That will teach you!

Mancat Monday

 Mom made this very comfy new "throne" for me.  

Now if she would just put that evil flashy box away and let me enjoy my throne.

Laila just loves to stir up all kinds of trouble with Minchie.  Girls rule!

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from January 2011


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.

Minchie's Bunny Ears

Mom says she just can't resist Minchie's big ears.  She's always doing this to him.  What a good little man he is to put up with it.

Free tummy rubs and snorgles today.

Mancat Monday

Minchie posing with his card from his buddies from down under, Rumbles and Hammy.  The hot mancatlyness may be too much for all you girls out there!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Minchie's getting a head start saving up his body heat for the winter-like weather we will be having this week.  BRRRR!

It's Caturday!

Laila is on high alert.  She hears birdies chirping outside and is bound and determined to make sure they don't get inside.  Oh, and she also does this for rustling leaves.  Silly girl!

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback goes back to November 2009.
It was when Angel was living with us.
I am President of the Mancat Club in our house.

And Angel is the Vice President.

Minchie is loving the new bed setup with all those silly stuffed animals gone.  We have two openings for anyone wishing to join in.

National Feral Cat Day

For many years Mom fed and provided shelter to the feral cats that hung around her office building.

This little trio of kittens were rescued by Mom and her boss in 2003 in the back lot of the office. The little gray one ended up being our cousin, Angel Gizmo, who lived with Mom's sister.

Angel Gizmo preferred Christmas trees to outside trees after his rescue.

These are just a few of the many ferals that hung around or visited over the years. The building was sold the summer of 2009 so the ferals have gone elsewhere. Mom drives down that street often and still looks for her buddies but has never seen one. 

National Feral Cat Day was launched in 2001 by Alley Cat Allies, the national advocate for feral and stray cats and a recognized authority on Trap‐Neuter‐Return. Check out their site for information on lots of ways you can help feral cats!

Tocks on Tuesday

In honor of Tock-tober, Laila is flashing her 'tocks 
while she drinks up her sink water.  Notice her little pink tongue made it in the picture too.

Mancat Monday

See the top of my head?  I'm surprised there is any fur left on it because Mom is always kissing it.  Geesh!

Easy Like ESSunday

A few weeks back our friend Newton, from Sometimes, Cats Herd You, did a post like this so we are "borrowing" it for today's Easy Sunday.  Laila agrees her ESS scratcher is the purr-fect spot to get her Easy on.  And for some reason, she likes her ESS upside down the best.

Photo Hunt - Plant

Today's Photo Hunt theme is PLANT.

Here is a picture of our auntie trying to plant a kiss on baby Laila's little pink nose.  Doesn't look like Laila is cooperating.

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback goes way back to September 2007 when Laila was a five month old kitten.  


Getting ready for the "hunt".

Okay, I take one piece of my dry food out of the bowl, drop it and bat it around trying to catch it like I would a real mousie in the outside world.

My favorite part of the game is when I get it underneath the bowl holder and create quite the challenge for me. Us kittens need to keep our hunting skills sharp, right?

Let the Action Begin!

Remember yesterday Laila was just hangin' waiting for some action to start with Minchie?  Well, Minchie snuck up on the cat tree unbeknownst to her.  Bet you can imagine what happened next!  MOL!

Who Done It?

 Remember Laila's favorite new place to hang out?

Well, when Mom got up this morning, this is what she found.  We are not telling how this happened!  hehehe!
