Kitty pile-up

Our weather is cooling off now and even fall-like.  Yesterday Momma expected to find us in Hollie's room soaking up some sun puddles.  Instead...

She took some more pictures with different angles and thought we were sorta in the shape of a heart!


Awww!  Tee hee! 

Today she went looking for us on the pillow again but we were in Hollie's room sun-puddlin.

Tee hee!

Thanks, everybuddy, for the nice comments for our loss of little smidgie.  It meant a lot to our Momma.  We are adjusting to a bit of a new routine and we are doing our best to keep Momma entertained and her mind off things :)

The tree outside this window has little fruits on it that the Starlings seem to love.


The tree branches come so close to our window and the birdies are just Right.  There.


I gotta get a closer look!

tee hee!

If you are looking for me in my usual places...

I'm not there any more...

I didn't talk about it much, but I've been dealing with chronic kidney disease for a long time.  Seven years.  Finally, though, my little kidneys said "enough!", and they pretty much weren't working any more.  I went to the v-e-t yesterday and Mom had them help me on my next journey, Over the Rainbow Bridge.

I feel like a kitten again.  And I have my tail in all it's long and beautiful glory.  hee hee!
Thanks, Mom, for not letting my fierce kitten-tude scare you away those 14 years ago and for bringing me home out of the wilds.  Life was good.

Until we meet again...

Easy Sundays

It is a usual Easy Sunday/Easy weekend around here.

Minnie and Ditto 09/03

Momma went out and about to get both us and her some food supplies.  At the pet store check out, she had close to 30 cans of a couple different flavors of stinky goodness.  The store clerk asked her how many cats she had.  She answered "7...but that is food for just two of them..."  tee hee!

Ditto 09/10 

This weekend has been really nice here.  Outside's at least 20 degrees cooler compared to last weekend so we get to enjoy open windows and the cold air blowy machine can have a rest.  Our backyard is becoming a squirrel playground.  We do like to watch them run around but we think it is a little bit rude that they can go into our catio and we can't!

Ditto 09/17 

Our momma likes to play with building toys.  She doesn't appreciate it when we chew on them play with them too, though.  She had some sets out today and while she was gone we destroyed them had a go at playing.  At least she had the fun of building everything again when she got home.  tee hee! 

Ok, time to get back to takin' it easy.
Have a great week ahead, everybuddy!

Some boxes were left on our doorstep this morning.
I thought I'd help get this one open.


I was having a bit of trouble.
Then I realized there were already some empty boxes!


I know!


What was I thinking!
And there was this other box too that Momma opened.


oh...wait...hang on...


Ditto!  Get outta my box!

Two! On TWOsday

That's us!
The TWO of us!

We're TWO!

Yes, today is our estimated-but-pretty-darn-sure-of Birfday!  And we're TWO!
Ok, so it might have been yesterday but we didn't want to be overshadowed by Eclipse day.  tee hee!  Besides, how often do you get to be TWO on TWOsday?

Plus this way we can take an extra day to celebrate get to do whatever we want and not be accountable.

"c'mon Ditto, you've gotta lay on the cuteness" 
oh, wait...we do that everyday anyways...

"how's this?"

Oh, yeah!

Time to go climb some walls.
We hope you'll help us celebrate with your own brand of crazies!
tee hee!

Mancat Monday

Happy Eclipse Day, ev'rybuddy!
Our momma had the chance to take the day off special.

Momma never got any special eclipse glasses (or a welding helmet, tee hee) so this morning we helped her make a viewing box.

"I dunno, Ditto, I think she needs a longer box..."

Thankfully, for her sake at least, she listened to us and made a second box that was longer so her image of the sun would be bigger.  Still...

So that is what she saw.  The top row is the start, the middle four pictures on my left and right are the peak (supposedly we got around 76% where we are) and the bottom row is the end.

"It's getting dark out there!"

It did get kinda dark in the house.  For all we knew it was just clouds.  We don't get what the fuss was about.

 "ho hum!"

Caturday closeness

Ditto here .
I think I've mentioned before that I like hanging out close to Minnie.


Today Momma was giving her the brush.

In this case I might have been a little too close...

What do you think of my white furs?
tee hee!

Mancat Monday

So there I was, just hangin out...


"Aack!  Sharpie!! What are you doing?!?!?!???"




After my dismount Momma wasn't so sure I was Sharpie...


She still isn't sure.
tee hee!

Road block

Move it, Sharpie!  You are in the way.
Momma says I aught to just use the tree on the other side of the penthouse to get down.
Oh, sure I could, but...


tee hee!

How could she???*

Earlier this year Momma packed us up in our ptu's and took us on a 40 squillion mile drive.  She took us into a v-e-t office...but not our usual one.  And then she left... without us!  That time she was gone for something like 8 days squillion years.  Then this weekend she did it to us again!!!  At least this weekend it was just for the one night.  Even tho it felt like another 8 squillion years...

So we missed the loud boomies and exploding sky over our house.  We remember last year and think we're kinda glad we weren't home Caturday night.  Momma remembered last year too and how afterwards we were sensitive to loud noises.  This would have been Lilly's first experience and Momma thought she would have a really hard time.  She said it would be good practice for us too, to just spend the night out of town.

Momma took an extra day today to hang out with us.  We did miss her and while we aren't being especially cuddly (gotta make her feel bad, tee hee), we have been following her around and keeping a close eye on her.  We've mostly been relaxing and catching up on bird tv.


Momma said the house was really calm and quiet boring without us here.
tee hee!

*pretty easily, apparently

The purrfect weekend...foiled

by Smidgen

Caturday started out pretty much as usual.  A little later in the morning, mom started messing around with our ptu's.  Uh-oh!  I made myself scarce!  If she had a car ride in mind for me, I wasn't going to make it easy.

Turns out tho, it was the boycats and that kitten Lilly that she packed off.  She came home later in the herself!  Oh my cats!  This looked like the start of the most purrfect weekend!

But then later in the night, not long after it was dark, the sky exploded over our house!  Fireworks, mom said.  I guess this is the first weekend in June when our town sets them off for their annual Pioneer Day Wriggley Day celebrations.  I guess they don't realize he isn't here anymore...or that he never liked fireworks...

So here I am with my Easy Sunday.  Mom took off again earlier this afternoon and when she came back ::sigh:: she had them with her.  Turns out she let Sharpie, Ditto, and Lilly spend the night at camp to escape the firework boomies.

well, I'm going to get back to my Easy Sunday, such as it is.
