We Are Back

Not that we wanted to be away, but TBT said the puter was being mean and there were problems.  We weren't happy about that, but we didn't have much choice.

MARLEY:   As the calmest, I will start us going again...  

I had to look at empty bowls a few times!  Not that we didnt get fed as regularly as often, but TBT doesn't normally leave the empty ones on the floor.  Its a depressing sight...

A food bowl on the floor should mean food is coming.  

The good news is also that we had whole CASES of foods arrive yesserday.  Some of the best yummies!    We are all OK.  Lori is loving it here.  She and Laz play constantly, bunny-kick each other mercilessly, and then go nap together right after.

I've never seen anything like THAT!  

I just stay peaceful and watch them.  I think it is like how Beins watch superhero action movies...

Cat Test


We took the Cat Psychopthy test at   Surprize, we are different!

Cat Psychopathy Test

Results:  AYLA

  • Your cat is 24.2% less bold than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 1.6% more disinhibited than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 14.6% less mean than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 12.1% less unfriendly than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 12.3% less psychopathic than the average cat overall.


Results:  Marley

  • Your cat is 24.2% less bold than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 3.4% less disinhibited than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 29.6% less mean than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 27.1% less unfriendly than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 21.3% less psychopathic than the average cat overall.

Results:  Laz

  • Your cat is 10.8% more bold than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 3.4% less disinhibited than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 25.4% more mean than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 7.9% more unfriendly than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 10.7% more psychopathic than the average cat overall.

  • Your cat is 12.9% more unfriendly than the average cat.
  • Your cat is 26.7% more psychopathic than the average cat overall.

Draw your own conclusions.  None of the results surprised us.  Lori is a wonderful DemonessKitty but expect she will calm in a few months.  And she suits Laz just fine...  Both are bundles of energy. Laz has the playmate he always needed and Lori LOVES him.  They both tear around the house recklessly.  Marley is calm.  Ayla loves me...

Who else has tried this test?  Did the results make sense for yours?


We are still having problems here.  Some new cables fixed a few things,  Email is still weerd.  TBT is workin on it.  We cant help much.

But we have some pics...

Lori is loving the TV chair...

But we are focussed on some problems TBT is werkin on.  We will post when we can...

The Start Of A New Year

We are looking forward to a Great NEW YEAR!

The days are getting longer.  It gets colder, but we are well-furred.

Lori will get outside (on harness many times but free when she recognizes the yard fence) in Spring.  

Laz and Lori are loving each other.

Marley stays calm.

Ayla is out of the bedroom more recently.  Still a bit twitchy about it, but more often is better than less.

TBT is doing house-fix stuff again.  He dint do much of that last year, so we are glad ta see him active again.

Secret Paws

LORI:  Ayla, Marley, and Laz decided I should be our Spokescat this year since it is my first Secret Paws experience.   Thats a Big Girl responsibility, so I am taking it seriously!  I made TBT takes LOTS of pictures.

First, our Secret Paws were CHARLEMAGNE AND TAMAR.  

Now ON to the prezzies!   

There was this nice big box...
And in it was a lovely bloo bag!
And it was full of wrapped prezzies.
We went for the little one wrapped all differnt.
It was a toy ball of yarn.  Neat, we have never seen THAT before.  And there is a bell inside!
And we love tissue paper...
Next, we opened the 2 matching prezzies.  TREATS!  Who doesnt love treats?  And they seem really healthy, so we can have more than one at a time.
Then there was one gift addressed ta each of us BY NAME!  Cool...
But I had ta check out that ball of yarn first.
I got SPRINGS!  I adore springs.  
They are SO pretty and bright.
I tried to get at them right away, but I cant open the bag.
Laz told TBT he needed help opening his.
I took some time to just amire everything.
And a little grooming allus helps when ya are all exited!
And Charlemagne and Tamar must have known we lose them fast unner furniture and weerd places...  Cuz we EACH have our OWN bag of springs!  I also stopped to read the nice card they sent.
Wow, I cant wait ta play with that ball of yarn!
Marley enjoyed one of the treats...
As did Ayla!
We will be "springing" around with our new toys and enjoying the treats for a long time...

Chrissymouse Day

 It was joyful and got good prezzies, but it is late, so details tomorrow.  But a pic...

Friday, December 24, 2021

Crissymouse Eve

We are spending the day listening to classical Chrissymouse Musics.  We have gotten more treats today, and expect more tomorrow.  It is a time we all get to go to fatness.  Even TBT is going to have extra chocolate tollhouse bars and fruits.

There might even be "steaks and bacon" involved.   And of course we will get some plain and simple, without his weerd flavors added.

He has our little tree up.  With MOUSIES!

It could use some lights...  But, WOW, MOUSIES!

And there will be our Secret Paws stuff unner it tomorrow when we all get up.  Sandy Paws delivered the box of goodies  but TBT will open it in the morning.

Lori has never seen one before an is all wide-eyed at it.  But She unnerstands not to attack it.  Yet...  

We will all do it together on Chrissymouse Morning....

Oh Bast and Sandy Paws and Secret Paws (an TBT) we thank you for all this goodness we expect to discover soon...

To all, a good night nap (warm and snuggly), happiness in the morn, and joy in life...  May all of yer prezzie dreams come true...

Thankful Thursday

We are thankful for our friends.  Who continue to visit us and leave comments even when we can't. 

I (TBT) have been having computer problems the past month (actually longer, but some are more recent than others).  This is not where to discuss details, but I had some time where posts wouldn't get through unless I copied them and tried later.  And I kept forgetting to do that.  And I had a week where random "0s" started appearing through my comments and forum posts.

That last has gone away, but I still have problems with posts not showing up.  Recreating comments is always of less quality than the original.  It the randomness of the odd problems that drives me crazy.

But I have been working on researching some of the problems.  Sometimes, just updating and restarting helps.  I'll stop there.

Right now, visiting and commenting seems to be working "mostly" well.  I think I lost a few of 50, but I left those sites "unanswered" so I know to check later.  Re-comment, if they didn't show up eventually.

I and The Mews love you all!  When we can't comment, we read.  

We are thankful for all the cards snail-mailed and emailed.  The snail-mail cards are posted to the front door (it is steel and we have LOTS of magnets).  Tomorrow, we will print out the emailed cards and add them.  We have of course, already seen and appreciated them, but we want to take a total picture of them all to post.

We are thankful for all the pictures of decorated trees.  We sometimes don't get around to that, so it gladdens our human and kittie hearts to see those of others.  Such beauty, such differences, and such a great sense of design is impressive.

We are thankful for joy of the season.  It doesn't require snow to make it a holiday.  It is feelings of connections to others.  Gifts are symbolic of love.  Things like card exchanges and secret paws represent that.

We here are thankful for our good lives.  I walked into the bedroom this evening, and saw Laz and Lori curled up together, Marley asleep on the bed a couple feet away, and Ayla on the shoe rack towel above them.  I was thankful just to see that.

We are all thankful for our general good health.  Even Ayla at 14+ (and deliberately self-isolating as she is) seems healthy, alert, and loving.  Laz and Lori have formed a bond.  Laz and Marley still wrassle friendly. Lori falls asleep on my lap often and joins we under the covers most nights. 

I am thankful that I am a lucky cat-daddy with these 4.  

Ayla is lovey to me.  Marley is calm to all and loves my attention.  He nearly passes out when I Zoom-Groom him....  Laz took some work, but settled in.  And he is seeking my attention more, gradually.  Lori brought joy to me and more peace to Laz.  Laz doesn't feel a need to challenge Ayla anymore.  Lori follows me around the house and I give her lots of attention.  This year's attention means a lifetime of loving connection..

I am thankful 4 cats can live in peace...

Some previously-used pics to show the above...

Love, peace, happy...

Talk about SIZE difference...
Ayla happy on The Lap...
Marley and Laz lap-brofurs...
