Friday Flashback

IZA:  I decided on a flashback for today.  This one is from this date, 2009.  I hadnt been here a whole year yet, and was still fitting in...

 *****************

I sure went all floofy lately!  I got reasons...  Ayla is in heat an that is confoosin me, cuz she doesnt play all normal.  An LC has started whappin back when I pounce her.

So I been learnin how ta floof my tail properly.




 
I know, I know, I gotta short little tail.  But I keep it high cuz Im a proud happy kitty...   That counts, right?

Girlcat Thursday

IZA:  I was vigorously nibbling out a small furmat on my back leg last night...
And just fell right asleep, leaving the leg there.
 This sort of thing cracks TBT up!

Tummy Tuesday

IZA:  I love laying on my back next to where TBT prepares his foods.
 That way, if something falls (or gets deliberately dropped), I see it coming the whole way.
The anticipation is half the thrill.  And with my lightening reflexes, stuff seems to fall in slow motion!

Chrissymouse Presents

We got some nice stuff from TBT.  New rattley mousies, some ham, some chicken, some soft treats.  We are loving them.

But we gotta say we are amazed at one prezzie. 

It was in a small box.  From Sandy Claws!  It was...  Lost toys!  He FOUND them for US...
We were amazed!  Clockwise from top left: 

1.  The oldest toy of the house.  It was Tinkerbelle's in 1986, and Skeeter's from 1999 to his passing over the Bridge.  It showed up a few times for us, but disappeared again for YEARS!  It is "softie mouse" nearly nothing but cloth, but oh so nice to hold mouthily.

2.  Fuzzy Shrew!  We remember it, barely.  It was gone for years.  Actually, only I (Ayla) remember it.  It vanished so long ago.

3.  Blue Rattley Mouse!  There is a red one and a green one, but Blue has been gone SO long!

4.  Rainbow Something!  We all remember that, but we sure havent seen it for a few years.  It was filled with Nip!

5.  The Nip Ball!  TBT can make it come apart and fill it with NIP!  It might be older than Softie Mouse.  TBT says that Tinkerbelle played with it as a kitten, and THAT would have been around 30 years ago!  He says it came in a box of Purina Catnip.  It got lost before.  TBT found it after some many years unner the basement stairs behind some ceiling tiles before Tinker went away and it was old then.  And it got lost again when Skeeter and LC played with it.  But it is back!

6.  Pinky Mouse!  No rattleys, no Nip, just soft bitable stuffed cloth.  We remember Pinky Mouse, but he was gone for SO long.

And the best thing?  They were all in a little container stuffed with NIP!  They all smell like Nip!

We were losing our minds all day playing with them.

Thank you Sandy Claws, that gift of gifts from the past was the BEST!  However did you find them in yer brief visit here?  We are so amazed and SO thankful. 

This is one of the best Chrissymouses EVER!

Chrissymouse Poem

We saw 3 mice on Catmas Day,
On Catmas Day in the morning.

We saw 2 mice on Catmas Day, 
On Catmas Day at the lunchtime.

We saw 1 mouse on Catmas Day,
On Catmas Day in the evening. 

We saw all 3 on Catmas Night
On Catmas Day in the Nightime,

We gave them cheese
And peanut butter
So as to make their day
And bid them well, 
For Catmas isn't for chasing...

  *****

Merry Catmas Day to all cats, woofies, mice and all.  May there be peace evrywhere this day.

But tomorrow is another day, MOL!

Chrissymouse Eve

We are all snuggled on the waterybed,
Visions of Mousies dancing in heads,

And if Nip should appear
In the morning my dears
We'll grin from ear to ear.

But there's more to be dreampt,
For fancy meals dreampt,
And some new toys be dreampt,
And excitement be dreampt.

For tomorrow is Chrissymouse Day!

Thursday Thankfuls

We havent done this for a while, but it seems the right time to do it again...

We thank TBT for giving us this great place to live.  We each came here in odd ways and for odd reasons.

I (Ayla) came here because I was too small to be a Breeding Queen and was unwanted by the breeder.

I (Iza) came here because my Meezer colors were all smudgy and I was unwanted by the same breeder.  And then we learned I was a Tonkinese and that was natural fer me.

I (Marley) came here because I was in a shelter, was given to a nice lady who turned out to be allergic to cats, and was found by another Being who led TBT to me and who bought me so I could be happier.

We all found our forever homes here.

We all beat the odds...

And we are forever thankful for our luck...

And TBT better be thankful to have US too!

MARK:  I am...

Toesie Tuesday

IZA:  First, we wanna thank Ann Zooltry fer the great new Chrissymouse Header.  We don't know HOW she does it.  Is that great or WHAT?

Second, I love showing off my toesies! 
They are SO impawtant to us.
TBT doesn't QUITE unnerstand.  He is more "fingerish".  He doesn't unnerstand claws, though.
*I* admire my toesies often.  And I give them LOTS of attention.  TBT clips his fingernails once evry couple weeks and thinks it is about the same.  HA!  Little he unnerstands he does.

Mancat Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  There seem to be 2 of me today!   
 It IS rather peculiar...
Im avoiding staring at the Other Me.  I dont wanna start a fight, ya know.   Im not sure what I might do iffen I stared at me...
TBT said something about "through the looking glass", but I touched it (carefully from the side so I wouldnt see me doing it) and it is too solid ta go through.  TBT is allus making jokes like that that dont make anny sense!

Caturday Saturday

AYLA:  We know a lot of our friends are having much worse weather than we are, but a backyard covered with nasstty frozen rain is no fun either.  So we have ta stay inside today.   TBT says it MIGHT melt toward evening, but then it will be wet.  Or dark and then he wont let us out annyway.

So we are looking fer fun things ta do.  I may study the new book that arrived fer us (I'm probly the only kitty here who could unnerstand it...
Iza an Marley are still decidin what ta do.  Iza is in favor of asking TBT ta toss kibbles around ALL day long (well, only between meals, of course).  Marley is thinkin more about wand toys and seein iffen the patio unner the deck is ice-free soon enough ta at least go out THERE before dark.  

And we all plan to nap a lot, but that isnt all that unusual!

Hidey Friday

MARLEY:  When TBT gets ta doing laundry and picking up stuff around the house, he cant allus see where his feet or WE are.  So its a good idea ta NOT be underfoot! 

I dont normally like ta stay UP on stuff like Ayla does, so the overhang of the waterbed is a good place to be UNDER!
And the cleaning up never lasts long around here, so I wont get bored waiting to be "out and about" again.

Softness Enhancement

AYLA:  Ive said it before
And I'll say it again.
No waterbed is so soft
 That a few more towels wont improve things!
Take it from a Professional Princess!

Tummy Tuesday

MARLEY:  Im doing Tummy Tuesday again.  Iza was off nappin somewhere.  Literally, ya snooze, ya lose!
 You are welcome ta try an rub my belleh.  But iffen ya do, I will grab yer hand with both front paws (and claws gently) and lick yer hand furiously tryin ta get ya to stop!
Im not in the hurtin bizness, distractions werk just as well.

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  I usually nap here.  But sometimes I just like ta sit here, ya know?
There is walled space around me and nokitty can come push up against me.
Besides, I chased the last kibble TBT tossed into here and I decided ta just stay...

Easy Like Sunday

IZA:  We are all taking it EASY in the bedroom today.  It is kinna cold outside an tomorrow is sposed ta be better, so we will wait.

I have a bit of a dilemma.  TBT dumped warm laundry on the bed and of course Ayla and Marley went right for it.  But I was already in the dresser drawer, and ITS pretty warm now from me laying in it.
You can see that they spaced themselves carefully.  I would have to either lay down on top (and Im not that great at balancing on loose soft surfaces) or I have to curl up nearly touching Ayla.  Which would bring up the question of direction.  Do I curl up nose-to-nose and let her breathe on my face or do I face away not bein able ta see iffen she is gonna whap me?
I think I'll just stay where I am - its simpler.  And it keeps evrything peaceful...

Remembering Skeeter

It has been 8 years since Skeeter left for the Rainbow Bridge.  

Today, as on so many days,  he is in our thoughts.  But today is the special day for that...

Thursday Twosome

It is THAT time of year!  Its rainy today and TBT says it is gonna get cold and windy tonight.  Then it will stay cold a few days.  Then rain some more.  After that it will just be generally cold for a Few Big Moons.
There better be some sunpuddle days coming along!  Meanwhile, we are just sittin around near each other, waiting for something to do...
