Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  Everyone was resting this afternoon except ME and TBT.  He was outside werkin in the yard.  We had all been out there around him (lookin fer mousies) but we got tired and went inside. 

Iza and Marley were on the bunk beds.  I don't like it there, too low...
But they sure do look comfy, dont they?  I gotta try it there when they are out.
So there I was just standing arund, deciding where ta nap.
Ever find yerself not being able ta make up yer mind about where ta nap?  
I looked left...
I looked forward...
I think I'll just sit here and wait fer TBT ta come in and make a lap!  Or feed us.  Either is good...

Flashback Friday

IZA:  It was this week in 2009.  I had just had my Ladygardenectomy.  TBT had ta put this awful cone on my head so I wouldnt pull out the stitches.  I hated it!  The only time it came off was dinnertimes!
So TBT tried making a "onesie" fer me.  That was better, but I could get at the stitches.  And he SHOULD have decorated it BEFORE he put it on me!
Then he found an inflatable collar (for small dogs) and that werked really well!  I could eat and poop normally.
But I sure was happy ta get it off...

Valentine's Day


And there is room in this drawer fer TWO!


OOH, I just HAVE to add that was so thrillifying when Spittikens popped out of the tunnel today.  I had my best stuff on, and Spittikins joined in.

He is SUCH a good mancat to indulge my goth whims like that!

But then we sat and groomed each other for HOURS...


 Oh thank you my beloved one.  This IS the best day of the year (so far).  I wish this could go on FOREVER, but you said you had ta get back home before dark, so I unnerstand.  Oh, my dearest one, thank you for spending your half day with me...

 If we had red tulips here, I would present you with one, my sweet sweet Spittikins...

Comment Troubles Again

We have routinely had problems with getting comments to our friends to show up.  It had been going pretty well the past few weeks but suddenly got bad again today.

Of the first 10 friends we visited, only 2 comments got through, and THEN, the picture verifications showed up.  No matter how carefully TBT looks, he can't seem to satisfy the picture-identification-demands.

We don't know what makes those picture-demands show up.  And, do you get them when visiting US?  We cant tell.

We read that Google has made some changes, and mebbe that is the cause of the new difficulties.

We love ta visit our friends.  We love ta leave comments.  We feel like if ya dont see comments from us, ya dont know we visited.  And that ya would stop visiting us...

We worry that the Gods Of The Sites are trying ta get us to leave by making it hard ta comment.

We keep trying.  We will visit friends again tomorrow to see if things werk better (sometimes they do).  We love our friends.  It is all so annoying and baffling...

Womancat Wensday

AYLA:  I was feeling glamorous, so I posed for TBT nicely.  He likes it when I do that...

Twofer Tuesday

IZA:  Its a DOUBLEDOUBLE Twofer Tuesday.  First, there are TWO pictures of ME (and I know you all will appreciate that)...
 And there is Marley in the background, so that is ANOTHER TWO!
And quite frankly, I don't want to try counting higher than that.

PS:  "Count" Dracula assisted in this post...  Though I probably shouldn't have suddenly opened the curtains...

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  An open and well-filled cloth drawer is a wunnerful thing ta discover!

This looks like a good spot ta nap fer a while.  Hmmm, will I fit better nose left or nose right?  I DO certainly want to be facing front, in case Iza tries ta surprise me or TBT stops ta give me some scritchies...
I suppose it doesnt really matter, I'll move around a few times annyway.

Easy Like Sunday

We were all just nappin good after the last snow.

Ayla finds the best spots in the bedroom.  Thats her territory in the daytime.

Flashback Friday

AYLA:  It was 2009 this month.  I was a year here and purrfectly happy when suddenly TBT brought another female Meezer in.  I wasn't happy then.  But TBT had an agreement with a breeder about adopting a couple Meezers "not right fer being Queens".  I was here because I was too small.  Iza arrived because "her colors were smudgy".

The Tonks immediately commented that Iza looked like a Tonkinese.  TBT dint know about Tonkinese, but upon looking up images, saw a cat just like Iza.  So cool...  Izas colors were "smudgy" because she WASNT a Meezer like me.  She was a Tonkinese.  Whew!

But I had to show her my paw...
Who knew she would get so much bigger than me?

Thankful Thursday

MARLEY:  This is NOT "The Back Of Disrespect".  I was just looking out at snow falling.  And OK, this was actually couple weeks ago.  It was snowing so I was watching the strange stuff.
But it got boring, so I took up my usual position on the lower shelf of the plant rack.
 Nappin in bad weather is good...
But I kept watching it outside.
Scary stuff!
Best ta just sleep...  And groom...
Ooh, I hear a can being opened!  Bye...

Womancat Wensday

IZA:  Annyplace can be comfortable... 

TBTs computer desk (he built hisself) is SO OLD he made this box unner it to hold fanfold computer paper!  Naturally, he doesnt use that paper annymore, but he used ta store junk in it.  But he took the junk out.  I hopped right in. 

I figure that annyplace I nap is MINE!  So in I went.  I liked that I was surrounded.  Cavish, ya know?
He took 2 pictures of this unusual event.  So why waste them?  Enjoy it twice, MOL!
And further proof that I can nap ANNYWHERE...   Here I opened the door under the bathroom sink!  And found a spot that was "comfy enough".
Napped annywhere weird lately?

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  No kitty here.  Just brown tabby boxes.  Move along now, nothing ta see here...

Easy Like Sunday

MARLEY:  I'm pretty big fer TBTs lap.  My paws can really put some weight on parts of it...
But he waits until I settle down and then everything is OK.
If he goes OTB before I do, I think I will have him stuffed and set in the chair with the heaty mat unner him...

Caturday Saturday

IZA:  The Heaty Mats...  I love them both.  The Minor one is good for a bit of warm-up after a quick walk outside on the deck.
The Major one is great for when I've been outside too long hunting for mousies and got colder than expected...
Having a choice is so great!  The Major Heaty Mat is so wunnerful!

Flashback Friday

MARLEY:  It was today in 2011.  I was still very new (see how small I was?) but even then I was settling in between Ayla and Iza ta keep things peaceable!
I even took the top cat tree platform so I could watch over the Sisfurs...
I kept good watch.
And if a Sisfur started a bit of a hissy, I reached out ta say "Be Nice, We Are Family"!
And I allus watched ta make sure TBT knew I was doing my job being a good Brofur.  I was too young ta be a Mancat then, but I was trying...
And when a Sisfur wanted ta complain about the other, I sat there and listened.  Sometimes just listening helps.  Neither of them had a boycat to meow to about the other until I arrived.
Ayla already liked me, but when Iza decided I was OK, I knew it would be good here.
