TOYS!

Wow, TBT  showed us a little bag he had set aside for NEW YEARS EVE presents.  It seemed odd, but he said that iffen he was gonna open a bottle of shampain, we should have Nip and treats too.  That sound good, but we were still confoosed...

When he opened though, we almost unnerstood.  Here are the new toys...
 But they were all hard plastic.  We're not really fond of toys like that...
But he esplained.  The round one has flickerin lights init.  Thats cool but there is nothin Nip or treats about it.  The yellow one can has Nip powder init...  THATS more LIKE it!

He filled it and we batted it around.  Then we learnt that Nip bits fall out the 3 little holes!  Lick, lick, lick...

The last one is COOLEST!  It gives out treats!!!  The top comes off an he filled it with treats.  We stared at it a bit, but nothin happened...

So he said "Be like Elmer Fudd and WHAPPIT".  Still no clue...  So he batted it a couple times an treats fell out the hole (cleverly not shown here).  I tried that an it WERKED.  Its a bit tricky to manage.  I (Iza) am good at it.  Ayla isnt, so she just follows me around grabbin a few...


 I think thats a bit of werk to just get a few treats.  But thats how we are mostly gonna get them now.  I gotta admit it is a bit of fun.  Especially since Ayla cant get anny unless I help her.  BWA-HA-HA...

Hide and Seek

IZA:  Its one of the best games.  It was Aylas turn ta hide.  I counted my front toes "...8, 9, 10" (that takes longer than ya might think.  I started lookin around corners...
 Well, she wasnt hidin behind the food bowl...  I heard a slight noise in the vent space and looked in...
Hah-hah, CAUGHT her!
AYLA:  I GOT ta start hidin SOMEPLACE ELSE...

Prezzies!

 Oh Bast, we botched a post!

Well, actually for TBT.  And we are SO embarassed that we dint post on this before.  Because we THOUGHT we had an we DINT!  Well, actually, we did, but TBT set it for 31st when he meant 21st!  We JUST noticed that!

So let us show ya the great stuff that Natalie sent us.  COOKIES!  OK, Bein type cookies not fer us, but WE get treats evrytime TBT eats one.   An we watch him very carefully about that.  The deal is that we get about a pawcount of dry treats (our favrits) each cookie he eats.   

So he eats a "Berry Thumbprint" cookie, and we get some treats.  He eats one cinnamon ball, and we get a few more treats.  So here is the enjoyment!

The box arrived!
 TBT opened it and saw COOKIES!


There were TWO containers!

TBT put some in his FANCIEST bowl for eating.  Williamsburg cobalt blue...  He only uses that stuff fer special occasions...
He loved them!  And we think we got more treats that night than anny day before...

Thank you SO MUCH Natalie.  We are SO SORRY we were late getting this posted.  Good thing we happened ta look back and noticed!  We would have felt just awful...  Scarlet and Melly and Natalie are such GOOD friends!

"Helpful"

IZA:  I help TBT a lot.  In fact, I dont know HOW he functioned before I got here!

For example, I help him stack the papers nice an neat...
 I hold the corners in place...
When he is tying up the bundles of noospaper ta be recycled I help him subdue the twine so it doesnt be all fighty...

Then I make sure the empty box doesnt fall off the table an break.  Cuz iffen it did, he would hafta get another box!
 Yeah, its not goin annywhere...
 I even point out where he lost his pen so he can write stuff...
I am SUCH a helpful girl!

Chrissymouse Eve 2010

Dear Sandy Claws -


We know ya will be busy tonite, so we wanna help a bit.  We have so much.  The house has toys all over, we got cat trees ta climb, we got treats, we even have fresh Nip.  Goodness sakes, we have our own ROOM now.  So, ta make it easier for you, ya dont hafta stop here tonite.


And we're makin a special request.  Iffen there is annythings in your big bag what is meant for us, we wanna ask that you deliver them to the local kitty shelter.  The kitties there need it a lot more than we do.

And iffen ya get the chance, could ya please take some of those poor kitties and deliver them ta GOOD homes with nice Beins?  Or at least leave a kitty toy in GOOD catless houses ta make the Beins think about adopting one?


Thank You,


Ayla and Iza

Chrissymouse Card(s), Part 2

Well, first, we wanna say that TBT mailed our Chrissymouse cards Friday. 

Second, when we asked him why he hadn't had us SIGN the cards, he turned a bit green in the face (not a good color for a Bein) and apologized.  So we pass the apology on to you who receive them. At least our names are printed in the cards...

Third, since TBT did all the addressing werk (somethin that completely baffles us), there may have been some mistakes.  We saw his list today.  Quite frankly, we dont think he did a very good job.  We KNOW positively that he neglected to add some new kitties to the addresses.  So if the address only mentions the older cats in the house, forgive him.  His memory is not very good!

Fourth, while we havent checked completely (we have some spotty memories ourselfs), we are worried that the addresses MAY have included a kitty or 2 that has gone over The Bridge.  Iffen that happens, please forgive him.  He is only a Bein, and therefore "faulty".

Fifth, he says (cuz we dont keep track of such things) that some cards may have been sent to old addresses.  He says it is hard to remember who moved this year.  Purrsonally, we assume the postal people know where all the kitties live and will make corrections.  TBT isnt so sure.  So iffen ya moved, the card might not find you.  Or it might...

Sixth (using the OTHER front paw), we wanna apologize for the uninspired design this year.  We think TBT is gettin weak in his declinin years.  He says he was "rushed".  We say he is no artist.  He objected ta that, but when we pointed out that the cards are kinna "sideways", he went all green again.  Case closed...

Seventh, we are proud of TBT for makin us new return address labels.  It took him a while ta remember how ta do it.  But at least we got our names on the envelopes!  An it was a close call, too.  The printer ran out of ink at the end of the label page!  He had enough, but "barely".   So we will give him a slight "paws up" fer that.

So, for the kitties what he dint have addresses for (or got wrong), we made him sit down an make a new card for everykitty!  He was good about it, we hardly had ta use our claws at all.

We still have objections.  Neither of us looks like this.  But he said they were VERY FAMOUS MEEZERS and it is "symbolic" (like Rudolf or a Snowbein), so we will go along wif that.  But shouldn't our names have been in GREEN?  He is SO hard to manage sometimes...


We cant guess to the size options.  We hope you can make it whatever size ya need. Hope ya can make it fit...

Oops, we hear the treat jar bein opened, gotta run...

Oh, and oops, we meant ta add ta a post a few days ago that TBT posted step-by-step pictures of assemblin the new kitty tower, but it seems we dint save it.  It is HERE!

Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  We just got up from our afternoon nappin.  This is a typical session.  First, we are both asleep.  Then I wake up cuz Iza has ta TELL me she is gonna move...
So, she gets up an stretches...
Turns around...
Then falls right back asleep...
 Wakes up again an decides she needs ta groom herself...
 Which makes me decide I should too.  I mean, if shes gonna keep me awake, I might as well...

Then its back ta sleep!
