How We Met

My husband and I were out of town for the weekend. We kept seeing this kitty that tried to enter a hotel through the lobby with guests. Apparently someone dropped her off, 'cause she was still in the parking lot the day of our departure. I bought a cat carrier and she travelled with us to the cat house. She's been part of the household now for 10 years or more and she enjoys her daily time in the garden window shared with her 11 kitty buddies. Orzo is a real sweet kitty and she loves sleeping with her mice.

the weather is all
janet can't stop talking about seeing old man winter just won't give up and move north into canada way to late for him to be sticking around or dropping reminders around the country! we had windchills which made it feel more like the lower 30s and temps not getting warmer than 47 either! just so sick and tired of all this crap as twc now is saying cool/wet stuff will stick around now till the end of july thanks to el nino who can go blow too! suposed to hit the upper 50s and 60 today, but think we won't get above the lower to mid 50s if that! sandy,ab,haley,angels

sports day today!
hoping we'll see you today for sports day as we know how much fun we always have together here for it and board games as well. got a mixed bag of weather promised here starting as sunny and we're outside till around noontime or early afternoon then in-side as we're supposed to have rain/showers with a strong cold front which will drop temps back to the lower 50s for daytime highs and lower 30s for nighttime/early morning temps. frosts likely and not good for flowering bushes/flowers which don't like the cold. janet got out and walked the entire middle st. block this morning a bit later than she had planned, but was happy she did get out and walk as she got a few pictures of flowers and the sky before the sun was up! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Dear, dear Orzo,
It is always such a pleasure to see catmail from you. We meow together so infrequently these days, I am quite honoured that you remembered my birthday. I would have been 13 on the 13th! MOL!

Thank you for what you said about my profile picture with Ana. My Mama made it for us.

And thank you so much for the platter of catnip cream puffs filled with mouse mousse and my birthday vote.

I am enclosing a vote for you and wishes for you and your family to have a very blessed day.

we got
1" fresh sleet on the ground much like old man winter did to us early in april last year as well! it's already starting to melt as it was 36 when janet originally went out to get the first of two thursday papers and shoveled the ramp to the stone path going to the driveway and then outer driveway before cleaning off her car and then taking pepper out as well. all should melt with the lower 40s here today or most should before the 60s for tomorrow and all of next week! sandy,ab,haley,angels

got warmer temps coming in starting tomorrow lasting through till tuesday next week or maybe if we're lucky all next week through easter and melt some of the 7-9+" of snow still left on the ground. would be nice to see it or most of it disappear be-fore easter and then have a nice easter for a change no snow, but as of right now likely will be white! sandy,ab,haley,angels

it was so nice
seeing all of you and our friends yesterday much like it was back in early january before all the snow and cold hit for janet's 57th birthday and now nat's 21st! he doesn't look it as janet doesn't look her 57! all is good in life when you get compliments like that from people! janet's itching to get things out to decorate outside for easter, but likely this year the way the snow is slow in melting as the weather just won't cooperate not only for her, but others, she's thinking of geting spray paint out and doing it that way on the snow as it melts away, she's seen others do it and why not her??? sandy,ab,haley angels

hoping to see you here for nat's big birthday bash all day on both of our pages. it's to honor a hard working young man who spends his time divided between taking care of mommy, all the housework inside/out/pepper too/and online college classes. janet thought this would be her last way to say how proud she is of him with all her and our friends some who know him and others just of him. sandy,ab,haley,angels

hi orzo
we had another round with snow here in ga. started wed afternoon and quit sometime Thursday morn we got bout 3 inches and was 5-6 up in the mtns above us.
is most all gone now and supposed to get warmer. but now they are calling for some rain in the weekend the weather hoomans were calling for some freezing rain sunday. momma is waiting for the weather to come on to see if that has changed.
momma will be at gma's this weekend so we will have to miss our game sunday. bummer on that but we know gma is more important to momma.
bummer dr spock crossed over today but he did have a good long life as he was 83.
momma is not real happy at work since her office manager hired someone she knew already and she treats her special and has taken to being unfriendly toward momma. she either treats her like an idiot or bites her head off over nothing this gal took some of momma's work load which was good and she does most of the end of the month stuff now that momma used to do. well last month momma asked off on thr at end of month almost two weeks before and was told she needed to be there cause of end of month. but lo and behold when that day came, the "pet" was given that day off. boy was momma pissed and said something bout it and was ignored. hhhmmppphhhhh I say is not right. momma called in sick one day cause her vertigo was acting up and she was throwing up. well boss terrie told her she would have to bring a doctors excuse. how rude. so momma told her fine she would just come on to work and puke in her trash can and she did too!!!!!! u go momma and the other buddy of boss has now been out two weeks with tummy and diarrhea and didn't go to the doctor till the 2nd week and not one word has terrie said bout that
is not right and momma is not happy and is getting to where she just does her job and tries not to say anything cause at 61 it woild be hard to get a job somewhere else and momma has been there 14 years
okay I quit grumping for momma we just hate to see her so bothered by this cause she is even tho she tries not to show it I guess some of the members here will say she has probably done something to cause it. that okay too

well we may have some storms over the weekend
I have rambeled enough yall have a good weekend purrs

another cold day, but nothing we can't take, a bit colder tomor-row morning all before we have a nice warm up all next week, but at a price, 2-4" snow sun night into mon which if you see 2 blogs one is for sun and the other monday due to janet being outside shoveling so she can get to work on time and then a sinker tues/wed snow to ice to rain praying it gets to the rain stage this time as it got stuck in ice mode last time we got one of these storms earlier last month! sandy,ab,haley,angels

below zero once again, but that's been typical this month as it's been the coldest and snowiest on record in some 20 or more years and also broke the 5 ft. snow mark we set back in '11!! we did get to the lower 40s for the first time since before christ-mas and melted a bit of the snow, which turned back to ice yes-terday as temps dropped all day long and bottomed out around 12 for a daytime high! we're gonna make the mid 30s tomorrow/sat/ wed of next week and 40s on sunday, but again typical of what it's been like here another weekend or start of the new week storm moving back in! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Nose kisses
Do you give noses kisses as much as i do? Rub your cute pink nose to your Mom's nosey?

There is not a week when I don't give nose kisses. And here's a proof. Mom changed my profile pic with us nose kissing.

I often give Mom a kiss after our grooming session. She kisses my forehead and I kiss her back on the nose. Mom is overjoyed and proud when I kiss her as it is a precious expression of my love. Moreso when it is captured in a photo. I have several shots in different occasions nose kissing Mom but Mom says this is our best and memorable shot as this was taken on my 9th birthday, November 3, 2014.

Have you kissed your beloved fur babies today?


p.s. I rub my nose firmly and Mom could feel my wet nosey. Teehee!

Kitty heaven
Mom's travels has brought her to different cities in Europe, the US, Middle East and Asia. But one of her most memorable trip was in Japan. In April last year, in full bloom of the cherry blossoms, Mom & Dad travelled to Osaka and Mom made sure to include a visit to the very first cat cafe, Neko No Jikan. Mom asked for directions from the hotel concierge and when they got off the train she asked directions from a young lady who kindly led us to the cafe, about fifteen minutes walk from the train station. Mom was amazed as she heard stories of how kind and hospitable Japanese are to tourists and she experienced it first hand with the young lady walking with Mom & Dad to show the way to the cafe.

Mom & Dad were given handling instructions: wash their hands, keep their voices down, no flash photography. Clearly, the cafe put the interest of the cats first and foremost which made Mom happy as the kitties welfare should be top priority.

Mom and Dad sat with the kitties for an hour. Some were showing off climbing and running, some were sleeping and some would just sit on their lap purring. There were pure breeds and rescued kitties all together. One kitty even took a sip at Mom's drink. Teehee! All the kitties were calm, relaxed, happy and good natured which shows how well they were cared for. It was such a calming and peaceful experience that both Mom and Dad plan to go back on their next trip to Osaka.


p.s. Mom shared photos taken with her iPhone and they are in my gallery.

A picture is worth a thousand words
Thank you for the compliments on our photos. You see, Mom is an aspiring pawtographer. Mom started taking photos of me the day I arrived in my furever home. Since then she has chronicled my life in photographs. She started using a point and shoot digital camera and soon after she got a digital SLR as recommended by her friend. Since then, she has hounded me with her camera never missing a good pose and a special occassion. Mom is a pawparazzi! Teehee!

To this day, she has thousands of photos saved and backed up and we share these photos on CC, FB and Instagram. As for me, I enjoy the photo sessions with Mom, I am a purrfessional model! I sit or lay still and even cooperate when she asks me to look up or look to one side. My fur sibs enjoy the sessions too. Mom says we like the clicker sound of the camera as we all pose for her. And the fun part is when we get a reward, a treat for being good and cooperative subjects.

Looking back at the photos, it is heartwarming to see us all grow into beautiful, happy and healthy babies.

Precious moments captured in time that will last forever. Priceless!

Best Friends Furever
To complete our furmily, our baby and youngest rescue is three year old happy girl Bullie-Boo. Bullie showed up at our doorstep in 2012 as a kitten with huge ears, lovely green eyes and beautiful swirl markings. Dad felt that we already had a handful having two special needs kitty with Yak and Bait but Mom fell in love with little Bullie and convinced Dad to take her in. Little Bullie's idol is her big brother Tong. She would follow him around, play fight in the garden with Tong, chase critters and bugs together.

Having Bullie became a blessing to us and her brother Tong. During the long months of Tong's anxiety issues, Bullie was Tong's constant companion and comfort buddy. She would tease Tong for a play fight, chase each other up the stairs and she would even cover his pee and poo whenever Tong would leave them uncovered in the box. Sometimes, Mom feels guilty as most attention are with us four kitties. But Bullie doesnt seem to mind as she is one happy and independent bundle of joy. She's most happy playing chase and play fight with Tong and she can play happily too on her own with her favorite rabbit toy.

But Bullie is also one naughty little girl. She loves to pick on her sister Yak. When she gets the chance, Bullie chases Yak and gives her the thunder paw. Mom and Dad now sees to it that they are supervised when together.

Tong and Bullie are inseprable buddies or best friends furever. Tong being the alpha and Bullie the little soldier. When Tong meows, surely Bullie will come running to his rescue. These two have a special sweet bond and both Mom and Dad are so grateful for taking Bullie in at the right time for a special reason... to be Tongs companion and best friend.

Thank you Bullie for choosing our home and loving Tong just the way he is.

Happy Monday
We continue to introduce our furmily and today the spotlight is on my mischievous and zany brother Tong.

Tong was one of the neighbor's kitten roaming freely who found his way to our home whenever he gets hungry. Tong had a mischievous wide eyed look and does a head tilt which Dad found too cute, innocent and funny. Thus his name, Tong.

Tong is a free spirited kitty. He loved to explore the garden, climb trees and windows. But our home was his solace and safe haven. Though he would roam freely (he was fixed at six months) he would always stay close to home, however did not want to be confined indoors. At an early age, Tong had tantrums like a child. He would push over a flower pot from the ledge, he would climb the screened door whenever he wanted to be let out, he would meow excessively when he did not get his way.

Despite his ways, Tong was adorable and sweet that any mischief he does is almost always acceptable. Most times he would provoke the neighbors cat and most times and he would run screaming to us for help. He has a loud cry for help that we recognize and that means he needs to be rescued.

When we moved to our new home two years ago, Tong had the longest adjustment period as he no longer was permitted to go outdoors. He overgroomed, had bald patches, sprayed pee outside the box and meowed constantly. With anxiety meds and TLC, Tong improved after several months and is now a happy indoor kitty ... who still demands for his food at the exact feeding hour or else ... he will hound you relentlessly.

Mom's love for Tong is truly unconditional.

Happy Monday.

Today is a gift.
Be a blessing.
Be a friend.
Take time to care.

Have a wonderful week.

better late than never due to janet and nat being outside. she pulled more muscles on her left side that's in addition to cuts on her hands as well as 2 bruised fingers on the left one and a partly sprained right wrist from doing ice in the gutters and ice dams on the roof. more snow 1" tomorrow, then more this weekend don't know the amount yet, and a sinker likely tues/wed. we don't need anymore a break is what we need! sandy,ab,haley,angels

We have more white stuff falling from the sky today. We might be getting another 2-3" of the stuff, and they said Sunday would be only 8* for a HIGH...can you believe that, what kind of HIGH is 8*? That sounds more like a low to me.

Mom walked down to Family Dollar and got us a big bag of cat kibble, a big bag of litter and 12 cans of food...I think we are good to go for awhile so mom doesn't need to walk anywhere on Sunday.

That bratty sister of mine, Sheba thinks she intimidating me by growling at me all the time. She does NOT like me for some reason. I am the ONLY cat she walks up to and just sits and growls at me...she thinks I am scared of her but I am NOT and I just sit and stare back at says I am the bestest boy cause I never growl back. I am a gentle-cat and would never hit a girl cat unless she pawsmacked me first, which Kelsee of ten does, but she is only playing...she never growls at me.

Mom had to update JAVA on her puter again. It seems like every week they have an update for that. version 8 was what she updated to yesterday and then she had 19 windows updates as well.

Oh oh, gotta run, I see my buddy, Mr. Squirrel running along the back fence, gotta watch him and see that he makes it without falling off.

have a pleasant afternoon!

Mom's sweet ginger boy and great love, Bait
Today, we introduce our sweet ginger boy, Bait.

Ba-it in our language means good boy. And yes, he was the sweetest and most loving ginger kitty.

Bait would watch Mom feed the kitties. He did not assert himself but clearly from his built he needed a good feeding. Mom made sure he had a meal but sometimes she would have to look around for him. Like most tom, Bait had facial scars and a slightly torn ear. He sure has been around but he was one very sweet boy who allowed Mom to touch him right from the start. He would come … and he would go … then one day … it was time to get vetted and neutered. From that day on, Bait was ours to keep forever. Bait quickly transformed into one very handsome ginger boy. His fur grew, his body became fuller and his eyes shone with love and appreciation.

Bait was a happy, calm and contented kitty. He loved his keebles and wet noms. Like Yak, he had chronic gum disease and tested positive for FIV. Bait’s case was more serious as he had more frequent inflammation bouts. He had more and frequent steroid dozes. But despite his condition, he remained the sweetest and most loving boy. He loved to be petted and combed. He would lay down with you on the couch. Rub his head against your chest and greets you with a happy tail always. Like Yak, Bait had daily supplements to boost his immune system. And he took them like a pro.

Yak and Bait had their first dental surgery in 2013. The surgery did wonders for Yak but not for Bait. His gum inflammation recurred quite quickly so we were back with his medication. Seven months after, he had another surgery to completely remove his teeth. This time, he had an infection but soon recovered. Then rashes appeared on his body and he had to be treated once again. Immediately after, one Friday afternoon, he was diagnosed with diabetes.

Mom said ... if we can manage FIV then we can manage diabetes. Bait had blood tests, meds were given and Mom got him his new Hills Prescription Diet W/D. Mom was petting him on a Sunday morning, reassuring him that all will be well ... but Mom noticed a very sad look in his eyes. The next day, three days after being diagnosed with diabetes, at 630 pm, Mom's sweet boy gave up and crossed The Bridge in Moms loving arms...

Leaving a vote for you.
