Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

We are wishing all of our friends a very safe and Happy New Year!

What better way to end this year than to get an award from our good friend, Flynn. Thank you! One thing we will miss in the new year is not having one of Flynn's calendars with pictures of he and Eric.  We have so enjoyed seeing their pictures throughout this year.

Mancat Monday

 These three blind mousies were in our package from Toffee, our Secret Paw.  These little doods are my favorite kind of toy.

 Come here, little white mousie, let's get a good look at you. 

And this little mousie matches my furs.  I love batting them all over the house and they make these little rattle noises when I do.

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from December 2007 and was titled:


For those of you familiar with the website stuffonmycat.com you know they come out with a calendar each year. Well to our surprise in the 2007 calendar, our Lilly is the featured cat this weekend on it! Being that I'm into scrapbooking, I did a page layout of the occasion and this is the actual calendar page. Miss Lilly is walking around like she's a star today and being very demanding. See how fame goes to your head?

Oh, how Mom misses her "Calendar Girl" Angel Lilly.  She was such a good girl to let Mom wrap her up in that garland.

Thankful Thursday

 Mom finally let us open our Secret Paws package from Toffee of DaisyMaeMaus!

 I didn't know what to go for first!

 Toffee even made a stocking for us.  It's nice and soft for sitting on too.


Mom loves this jingle bell bracelet.  Of course she had to put it on me.

Thank you once again, Toffee, for all the wonderful gifts!  This will keep us busy for a very long time.  Can't wait to try out the yummy treats and stinky goodness!

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from December 2009 and was titled


This is a picture of mom's Christmas tree from a Christmas gone by. She just loved it!  It had a cat angel tree topper and 99% of the ornaments were kitty ornaments.

Our sisters-who-came-before-us, Angel Cerise (left) and Angel Lilly (right) just loved laying underneath it. This was Christmas 2006, Angel Cerise's last Chrissymouse with Mom.

Well, when Christmas 2007 came along, Laila was a 7 month old kitten. Mom slowly introduced her to the tree but no matter what, Laila absolutely would not go into any room that she could see it from as she was terrified of it. And being we live in a one bedroom condo, she was very limited on where she could go. For two weeks Mom put up with this and feeling just terrible her little girl was so terrified of it. Well, mom said Laila was more important to her than a tree, so after enjoying it for 2 weeks, one night before Christmas she came home from work and took it all down and put it away. It still took a lot of patience for Mom to get Laila to come out into the living room again with it gone, but finally succeeded. Mom has tried much smaller trees and nothing works. She was a terrified little 6 week old feral kitten when she was rescued so who knows what she went through those first 6 weeks.

So, you are probably wondering what happened to the tree? Mom tried to sell it but no one was interested so she donated it last year to Angel's mommy's work as their office tree was falling apart. She hopes to get over there today or tomorrow to visit it and take a picture of it.

Secret Paws Package is Here!

 Our package just came and it's from Toffee Kyoot Ripple Fuzzypants of Daisymaemaus blog!

Mom opened it up quickly but saw not everything was wrapped and then closed it up right away after she got a picture.  She won't let us open it until Christmas Eve.  Boohoohoo!

Thank you, Toffee!!!  We can't wait to see everything in there.  Of course Mom will be there with the flashy box and another post.

Wasn't it nice of Mom to put my ham-mick on the couch and off the cold floor.

The Waiting Game

 Ut oh!  Here comes trouble!

Laila says she can wait forever for her turn in the wicker castle.  Laila wants to know if this picture makes her head look tiny or her body too plump.  MOL!

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from November 2008 and was titled
 Fierce Fighter Day - A Day of Memories

Whiskers and Purrs are sponsorin’ Fierce Fighter Day today in honor of Felix and all of Those Who Came Before who fought illnesses or any other struggles. We are honoring our three sisters who came before us also known as the Chi Town Trio.

Chi Town Trio

Binky Baby was a FIV kitty. We didn't find this out until she was about 10 years old. Because she was a very passive cat it was not passed along to Lilly and Cerise. She crossed the bridge March 5, 2005 at the age of 13. She was Mom's favorite.

Cerise lived to the ripe old age of 17 1/2. She was known as the vet's "Miracle Kitty" as she was a feline heartworm survivor back when not much was known about it. Then for years she battled kidney disease and crossed the bridge June 18, 2007. Cerise was around when we first started blogging.

Most of you remember our Lilly. She lived to the ripe old age of 17. Her kidney disease was being kept in control through diet but in the end it took over and she crossed the bridge June 5, 2008.

Now Mom has a new crop of kitties, us, Laila and Minchie. We are the loves of her life and keep her very amused and are a lot of company for her. She still misses the Chi Town Trio so much it hurts as they were with her for so long and helped her get through so much, just like we are now with this horrible economy.

Thankful Thursday

 Our friends over at Catsparella had a Giftskins customized cat wrapping paper giveaway and we won!

We chose the Meowy Christmas gift wrap design, and had it purrrsonalized with these adorable pics of us in our Santa hats.

Laila was very busy checking out the cute design and counting how many pictures of her were on it.
Then she claimed the paper hers and decided it was a great place to lay.
Sorry, Minchie, Laila isn't going to share with you.

Womancat Wednesday

Mom doesn't understand why I don't like to lay on this blankie.  It's Minchie's and I don't want to get his stinky mancat smells on my furs.

Toasty Tummy Tuesday

Mom was wondering why I haven't been laying in my Costco box lately.  Well, let me tell you, there are a few hot water pipes underneath the floor in our condo and when the heat is on, they generate nice, warm spots on the carpetSo this is pretty much one of my favorite spots where I'll be hanging the rest of the winter

 What you doing, Mom?  Looks like you need some snoopervising.

 Hey, these scraps of paper are a lot of fun to play with.

 Whoa!  Look at all those kitties in Santa hats on that paper!

 Oh, so this is the package that will be going out to our Secret Paw this week.  Sure hope they like everything!

One last inspection before Mom tapes the box up.
