10 Years

TBT here:  It seems strange that Skeeter went over the bridge 10 years ago.  It doesn't seem like it was that long ago.  I still miss him.

Protector of sisfur LC...

Such a handsome and loving cat...  He could slip under the covers at night and rest next to me without disturbing my sleep.  Happy to be close to me.

He had gorgeous fur patterns.  Spots...
He had a wonderful send-off...

And he stays in our thoughts every day in the yard...

Easy Like Sunday

IZA:  Well, TBT did put the drawers back in the "places they came from".  So much fer our "condos"...  But he has this piece of carpet that just fits them.
That, on top of his cloths, IS pretty comfy. so I won't complain (much).
 I could do without the flashy though...
And Marley likes it too.  These drawers are big enough for him...
Ayla doesnt.  It isnt high enough fer her.  Well "Boo-Hoo"!  It suits Marley and ME.

And since SHE is happy curled up on the top of the shoe rack towels, we are ALL happy.  So it is a good start to the day...

Caturday Saturday

IZA:  Well, I cant spend ALL Day and Night on the wunnerful new heaty mat.  I need ta be near TBT when he sleeps too...  So I found a spot where TBT layed some mats on the bedroom floor while moving more furniture. 

Its temporary, but why not take advantage of new spots while they last?

Flashback Friday

This day in 2012, Marley was enjoying the huts on the cat trees.
They fit him purrfectly back then.
He loved all of the huts...

And my Dad was here.  He had his favorite chair, and enjoyed having Iza sit with him.  Iza liked him too.
Dad always claimed he didn't like cats "all that much", but he always gave them good attention and especially good solid ones like Iza.  I think he thought "guys were supposed to prefer dogs".  He was always good to the family cats though.  He even got caught talking to them nicely when he thought no one else was around.  LOL!

Dad had the best last couple years here.  He was sinking, alone, in Florida the 4 years after Mom died.  Taking care of him for 2 years was good for me too.  We talked a lot.  He didn't always make sense around sunset (that is an actual specific problem), but he did remember things most of the time and seemed happy to be with me (and the cats).

 And no one knows I am there.
It IS camo after all...

Wonderful Whiskeratti Wensday!

IZA:  We dedicate this post to the Whiskeratti.  They are Wonderful!  They heard my cry of loss about the great warm heaty mat and said they weren't using theirs (of the exact same kind) and THEY SENT US THEIRS!!!

I am SO THRILLED.  This heaty mat warms to 90F.  The weak replacement mat TBT tried only got to 83F.  Warmer (to some degrees) is better!

So, without (much) further comment (until the end), here are pictures of my delight...

I smell a cat!  It must be a Whiskeratti.  Oh joy to sniff a scent from a friend!

Yeah, just TRY to get me offa this...

Oh, so much thanks to my Whiskeratti friends!   When even TBT failed me, they came through.

TBT:  Iza detected the warmth of the heaty mat the moment she came inside from being out on the deck.  She detected the difference in warmth immediately and curled right up on it.  The problem with the original heaty mat from Art Of Paws was that the power AC/DC adapter plug fell right apart the very first time I unplugged it to move it.  Cheap construction on the Chinese plug!

To make sure that is never an issue with the plug on the mat the wonderful Whiskerattis sent, I plugged the mat plug into an extension cord and wrapped the attachment with several feet of duct tape.  The Iza-beloved heaty mat will never have the plug break again.
Ayla and Marley will discover the new RIGHT heaty mat soon.  But Iza and I are so thankful to the Whiskerattis for sending us theirs...

Furniture Examination

IZA:  TBT was moving some furniture, and I learned that some of these things are just little caves!  I mean, Ive slept in the drawers that open up, but I never realized they came all the way out...

So I hopped right up ta take a look-see.
Hmmm, this has possibilities!
A few folded towels, mebbe even a half a curtain, a couple toys stashed inna corner...  And there is  even a little cave fer each one of us!
I wonder iffen I can get TBT ta leave the drawers out and fix it up a bit?

Meal Mat Monday

AYLA:  Since Iza is a Hungry Hungry Hippo, I like ta eat my meals separately.  Usually up high on the shoe rack or high windersill in the bedroom.  But sometimes I just dont feel like jumping up ta eat.  So sometimes I have my bowl on the bed.

TBT gave me my own tablecloth!
But since Im down low, it IS wise ta check the door ta make sure Iza isnt sneaking up on my food...
Shes not, so I can eat in peace at my new fancy spot.
It also helps that TBT is standing right there...
