Easy Like Sunday

AYLA:  I've been spending a LOT of time with Dad lately.

He needs my purrs and such, so I've been doing my best.

Like, I keep his lap warm.  Cuz I heard it was good fer his sore hips.
Besides, I feel safe on his lap too.  An he calls me "Princess Twisty-Whiskers".   No idea why, they seem normal ta ME!
I slowly fall asleep there.


No real The Dad Report, he is doing a memory thing today:

Caturday Saturday

MARLEY:   Dad says I am becoming a "messy eater".

But *I* say those spillovers dry up and become "very tastey crunchies".  And yes, I am getting rather "plump" lately.  Dad leaves a big bowl full of kibbles out lately 24/7 AND tries to give us canned "stinky goodness" 2x a day.  Who am I to complain?  I don't plan to climb any trees these days annyway...

Flashback Friday

AYLA:  Today we go as far back as our pictures exist.  April 2008!  It was Skeeter, LC, and Me back then. LC and I loved Skeeter.

We were sniffin where some night animal came by.  Possum...
LC liked being out at the far end sniffin the possum...
The smoker was always a popular place ta sniff.  Pork shoulder that week.
But we were ready ta come in fer dinner.
LC agreed.

I have no idea what dinner was that day, but I know we all enjoyed it.  TBT gives us good foods!

Thankful Thursday

We are thankful today for a wonderful picture from Ann of Zoolatry.  She added us all to Dad and his walker.

TBT and the Easy Riders...

We may have Dad print and frame that one.  As a good reminder for him to be careful around ladders...

Tonkinese Female Kitten

TBT:   I placed a deposit with a tonkie breeder for a female tonkie kitten in December.  Iza was such a wonderful loving cat that I sought another.  I know, a new kitten won't be Iza.  But in general, I will hope for some similar characteristics of her breed (person-oriented, silky fur, lapcat).  

The good news is that the breeder thinks I am a perfect person for one of their kittens.  I had them read my blog to see about Iza and the other Mews.  They put me high up on their waiting list.   I am grateful for that.

The bad news is that their most recent Queen had to have a c-section and none of the kittens survived.  I am crying for them; People, Queen, and lost kittens.

The good news is that their other Queen should have a litter in March and the kittens available in June.  I can hardly wait.

If this seems a bit transactional, it is.  I want a female tonkie; I wont hide it.  Most of the cats in my life have been random, not by breed (other than Ayla - I really wanted a Siamese).  This one is for me by choice.  And it will almost certainly be my last one.  At 70, I have to think about my age at a kitten's senior years.

Her name will be Lorelei Lee (aka, Lori) to match Lapis Lazuli (Laz) from the Robert A Heinlein books.  Never mind that Lapis Lazuli is a male cat; Heinlein is a bit fluid about gender anyway and I like theme names.

I am waiting for June, 5 months...

No Dad Report today since it is me posting.

AYLA:  Sometimes Dad has chicken fer dinner.  There are bits left over and I like those, but the chicken fat is the best part! Serious YUM!

Dad tries to save the bowl for ME when I visit him in the TV room.
He KNOWS I really love that chicken stuff...
May you all get stuff you LOVE!

Mancat Monday

MARLEY:  I love the Otto-man.  Serious comfort zone!  It is temporarily away from Dads TV chair (he needs paths for the walker-thingy) but I still like it.  He can see me there.

I love to stretch.  Dad says I have "jazz paws".  
But he really likes my tummy and floaty paws.
When Dad is watching me, all is well in my world.  I'll be over for scritchies later.

The Dad Report:  Nothin new today!

Easy Like Sunday

 MARLEY:  I usally sit on the chair arm and Dads leg, but yesserday I did some actual lap-sittin.

Mostly though, I just sit on the floor next ta him.  I still get scritchies there, but on the floor, I also get a few treats.  Treats are good...

No real Dad Report today.  He says today is just like yesserday.  But he has some neat pics of hisself:

My Gotcha Day

MARLEY:  Today is both my 10th Gotcha Day AND Flashback Friday, so I am showin MY FIRST DAY pictures.  And since we cant have a pawty (Dad is just not up to it and his walker-thingy would scare evryone annyway), I'm showing LOTS of them!

And here I am now on MY FAVRIT SPOT...

Laundry Hamper Thursday

AYLA:  You've seen me in the laundry hamper before, but I DO like it there a lot.  It is soft, hidden, and smells like Dad.

Until Dad can make a good lap again (he cant put a foot up on a knee these days), this is the best I can do.  Ya take what ya can get sometimes.

Werdy Wensday

LAZ:  I am watching the Fishie TV channel.

I could see better if Mr Algae-Eater Fishie was doing his job.  
Or if Dad scraped it off with his sharp-edge thingie.  But this isnt the best time ta ask for small stuff like that.  I'll wait...

BTW, there are some spaces on the top large enough fer a paw ta reach in and maybe grab something tastey.  But we dont.  They are sort of like minor fambly members, ya know?  And also, BTW, the little ladder is there just for us kitties.

There is no Dad Report today.  He posted, but it is all celebrating Bein Inauguration Day happystuff...  Not that ya cant go read it or annything, but it is more TBT stuff than Dad stuff.

New Nappin Spot

LAZ:   I found a new napping spot!  I can watch Dad in bed from here.

Seems like the least I can do, after all.
When he settles down and falls asleep, I go curl up against him and purr...

Mancat Monday


Hmmm, should  I wait ta see iffen Laz leaves anny food or just stick my nose in?

Dont worry.  I let Laz clean the bowl.  After Dad took the picture, he put down more food.  And brought Princess Ayla another bowl in the Mews Room.  He can get around well enough for the impawtant things.  And Miss Deb takes good care of the litter boxes...
