All Worn Out

Every night Mom plays with me and my feather toy until I drop from sheer exhaustion.  It's great exercise for me and hopefully I can drop a few pounds.  I always had to sit on the sidelines while Angel Minchie always hogged the playtime.  It reminds her of my kitten days.

Mancat Monday Guests

Remember our cousins, Sam and Henry (brothers from same litter), who live in Portland, OR?  We thought it was pretty funny that their Catdad called them "demon seeds" on his Instagram account.

Sam, the one in the middle of the picture, is the tripod kitty they adopted.  You can see his story HERE.

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!

Today's flashback from April 2009


These are mine toesies. These are some of the things I use them for:
  • Digging to China in the litter box
  • Gently patting Mom's face in the morning to get her up to feeds me
  • Holding them out for Mom so she can trim the nails (with the promise of treats afterwards)
  • Boxing with Laila Ali in the morning while we wait for breakfast to be served
  • Playing with mine toys
  • Getting Mom's attention
  • Getting to the top of the cat tree in split second time
  • Making biscuits on Mom's tummy
  • Giving kitty massages to my sweet Turkish Princess Patches

I Was a Winner!

 I was one of the lucky ones who won a copy of "Prancie's Prayer" that was written by Ellen of
 Loved the story and all the adorable illustrations.  

 Waiting for Mom to turn the page for me as I don't have any thumbs.

The part of the book where Pumpkin is laying in the outside manger next to baby Jesus reminded me of my cousin Angel Gizmo who loved laying next to baby Jesus in his manger, only his was inside.

Thank you for the adorable book and come Christmas, we will keep it out on our coffee table.

Laila the Landscaper

I just love when Mom brings me fresh wheat grass.  I use my landscaping skills to shape them into a little Christmas trees.  Mom finds this quite amusing as, if you know me well enough, I'm terrified of Christmas trees and am the reason we don't put one up.
