Laila Does Tock-Tober

 Here is my latest Tock-Tober shot of my tocks in honor of Derby.

I'm sure Derby would approve!

Thank you very much.

A Visitor From Montana

Last month a friend of Mom's from Montana was in town for business (a yearly trip) and this was the first time it worked out that they got together.  They had met for the first time years ago at O'Hare airport when he transported a kitty his former neighbor (when he lived in Illinois) was going to adopt.  They have known each other since the very early 2000's via his website and cat cams (  David brought me a bag of these awesome Yeowww!!! toys that he sells in his online stores.  She took him to the shelter I came from and who he donates to a lot and they got the royal tour.    He also got to see in person the Buddy brick he bought back when the shelter was built.  We have a brick there too.  Maybe next year when he comes in I'll get to meet him in person.

Flashback Friday

This sweet flashback from December 2009 shows how thankful we were for each other.


Hold on Minchie, I see a spot on the top of your head that needs cleaning.

While I'm checking your ear out for cleaning, Laila, I'll tell you a little secret. We are both very thankful to have each other to help out with the cleaning of the furs that are so hard to reach.

I Think Not

So, Mom, you say you want to wash your hands?  Can't you see I'm chillaxin' in my sink?

Flashback Friday

Laila and Angel Minchie were great wrestling buddies as this flashback from November 2009 shows


Minchie is down for the count.

Now Laila is down for the count.

Laila resorts to two paws!

And once again, as always, Miss Laila Ali is the winner!!!

Flashing back to my sweet angel mancats from November 2009


I am President of the Mancat Club in our house.

             And Angel is the Vice President.

Anyone Up For It?

I'd invite a handsome mancat to join me in this box,  but it might just be too much of a tight squeeze.  But it sure would be fun trying!

Friday, September 20, 2019

Flashback Friday

Sweet Angel and Laila synchronized snoozing in this November 2009 flashback


That teenie tiny box is now Laila's favorite. And that is Minchie's pink mousie getting too close for comfort to these two formerly ferals.

Tummy, Toesies and Tail Tuesday

Laila has fallen over on her back because of all her floofy tummy furs and can't get up.  Can anyone help?

Friday, September 13, 2019

Flashback Friday

Great November 2009 flashback of best buddies, Angel and Minchie, planning their day.


We are very handsome ifs, ands or "butts" about it!

Go Away!

Mom!  Please get that flashy box out of my face!

Love My Costco Boxes

Well, it's about time!  Mom finally picked up a box for me last week when she was at Costco.  After this posts, I'm jumping in and taking a snooze.

Friday, August 30, 2019

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback shows Laila checking out some pretty fall leaves I brought her back in October of 2009 


Oh my, what have we here?

Help! It's stuck on my furs!

It smells familiar, like when I was a tiny kitten living on the outside. Mom said these leaves came from the town I was rescued from.

My Little Carpet

How dare Mom park her computer chair on MY little carpet.  I'll show her!  She can't pull it out to sit on.

Friday, August 23, 2019

Flashback Friday

Today we have a great flashback from October 2009 when Angel Minchie and Laila were earning their keep


BAM!!! Take that you creepy crawly spider!

He's all deaded now.

Mom says that's the only job we have here to earn our keep. Keep the house free of bugs.

Laila is trying to eat the darn thing. But keeps spitting it out. Must taste pretty nasty. He was pretty nasty looking too.

Heavenly Pillow

This comfy fleece blankie I am resting my head on while snoozing, was Angel Minchie's favorite place to sleep.  Mom just can't bring herself to move it.  This is the first time Mom has ever seen me touching it since he ran off to the Bridge.

Black Cat Appreciation Day

Today is Black Cat Appreciation Day so we are paying tribute to our sister Angel Binky Baby.  She ran off to the Bridge fourteen years ago before we started blogging.  She was so pretty and very sweet and lovable and slept with Mom every night.  Mom still misses her.

Friday, August 16, 2019

Flashback Friday

Today's flashback from October 2009 shows Angel Minchie and Laila having one of their "epic" battles. 

It looks like Angel Minchie has the upper paw, but Laila was usually the winner of these battles.  She's not named after Laila Ali (former professional boxer who competed from 1999 to 2007. She is the daughter of world famous boxer Muhammad Ali) for nothing!

Love My Cat Tree

Love all these levels of my cat tree that Mom keeps right in front of the slider.

Friday, August 9, 2019

Flashback Friday

Our sweet angel, Angel, is the star today for this flashback from October 2009


Angel had the best tummy this week for Tummy Tuesday. He's waiting for Mom to brush that belleh of his.

One Spoiled Cat

How sweet of Mom to keep a cup of fresh water by the bathroom sink (where I love to drink out of the faucet) for me.  I'm not too spoiled, am I?

Friday, August 2, 2019

Flashback Friday

Angels Minchie and Angel are not happy being disturbed in this October 2009 flashback
Please put that flashy box away so we can get our mancat sleep.

Toesies Tuesday

Purrfect spot for resting my toesies.  I love laying on these little rugs Mom has.

Friday, July 26, 2019

Flashback Friday

Today's October 2009 flashback shows a cute trio if ever there was one


It's so seldom the three of us are all together like this that of course Mom had to run and get the flashy box. We were good and stayed like this for her so she could get a few shots.

Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Toesies Tuesday

Lots of room to stretch out my toesies on our couch.  It's not often I lay on our couch in the summer.  But I just felt like I needed a super comfy place to lay today.

Friday, July 19, 2019

Flashback Friday

Today "Angels" Angel and Minchie are hanging out in this flashback from September 2009


Us dudes are gonna be hanging by ourselves today as Laila goes in this morning for her dental surgery. At least we'll be getting a break from getting beat up by her all day long. hahaha! Good luck little sis!

Thick Coats of Fur Come in Handy

I rarely go inside this cat bed but today I decided to give it a go.  You'd think it wouldn't be comfy with laying on all that wicker but with my padding and thick coat of furs, it's not bad.

Thinking of my brother Angel Minchie and wishing him a Happy Birthday up at The Bridge.  There is still such a big void in our lives but we have lots of wonderful memories and pictures.
