About Me

Active within 2 Days

Hi! My name is Handy Andy #149735 WOW COTD! THANK YOU ALL!

I am Domestic Shorthair from Minneapolis, MN

Nicknames: Handy Andy! Andy is a short haired white with grey tabby spots.

Age: 6 years old

Gender: M

Coat: short haired

Education: Andy and Milo came in as rescues from the streets, from the same area. Andy, grey tabby spots on white, was rescued at about 6 mos of age. Milo is a long haired black cat, declawed, who came in originally with Andy, was adopted out to someone with a small dog, but returned, because they were not getting along. He is happy to be home! They have made an easy transition to living with our family, formed a close friendship bond with each other, and enjoy playing MHL Hockey. Obviously they learned to skate on icy city streets. As of, 5/21/10 Andy and Milo were adopted, but it didn't work out for them, so they returned to our foster home. Andy is now with us permanently due to the discovery of a heart murmer. Milo finally found a forever home! Hope to see him again on a new page of his own and the name has chgd to Myles!

First COTD was given to Andy and Angelo, our foster kitties back then on 2/11/2010.

WOW! TODAY 4/15/14 ANDY WAKES UP AND RUBS HIS EYES WITH HIS PAW--- COTD! MY OWN FIRST COTD! THANK YOU SO MUCH DEAR CC FURRENDS! HE BOUNCES OUT OF BED TO HUG EVERYONE, WHO HAS STOPPED BY FOR THE PAWTY!

THANKS MIKE & FAMILY VOTE #1600!

My favorite tricks and treats are: They are survivors-- Andy was only about 6 mos old when he first arrived. He is full grown now, but still on the small side. Milo is a young adult, perhaps about 3 yrs. They love to run, roll and play and are always an inspiration to watch. and They like anything, as long as its food or water!

Where I hang out: Wherever his new friend Honey is!

My favorite grubs: Friskies' canned. He is on a high quality dry kibble, but he loves his Friskies!

My pet peeves: People, who consider cats and kittens throwaways. Andy is very social and obviously had a family when he was a small kitten, but now he was found roaming the streets and no one to claim him. He was very thin, had scratches on his nose, but was otherwise healthy. Milo, the LH black cat, was neutered and declawed. No signs of anyone looking for either of them.

What I love about my owners: She saved us from the life of being strays. The rescue group she fosters for made sure we got neutered, health checks, and treated for worms and other parasites.

My cat hobbies: Eat and sleep-- mom offered a toy to Andy when he first arrived and he was afraid of it. Gradually he learned to play again.

Pet motto: One more stray out of harm's way!

How We Met

WOW! ANOTHER COTD TODAY 4/21/15? HUGS TO ALL DEAR CC FURRENDS!

Andy came in as a foster and went to many adoptions for over a year. Somehow the right person never came along. His friend Milo found a forever home, but they did not want two cats, so Andy stayed on. Then, when his annual vet exam came up, it was discovered that he had a heart murmur. Probably had it from birth, but it was in a place that was hard to detect. That was the clincher for mom. No more stress for Andy. He would stay with us forever!

WOW! AND THANK YOU ALL DEAR FURRENDS FOR THIS COTD TODAY 4/15/14. THANK YOU BOO KITTY AND MOM FOR THE BEAUTIFUL FRAME. WE WILL BE COMING AROUND TO THANK EVERYONE INDIVIDUALLY THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, BUT WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS ALL OUR LOVE FOR YOU AND HOW MUCH ANDY, MOM AND ALL APPRECIATE YOUR FRIENDSHIP!

Its biscuit day. I LOVE to "knead the dough" on Gma's lap. There is just something about watching her wince and hold her breath when I really get into it,and the claws come out.

The "vacation" has been extended
Gma gets to go play with the intruders for a couple more days. I DO hope they bring me something special back from their trip for all the grief and agony I have had to endure. Check out Steve's gallery pics-there are two of the guilty subjects she is watching and feeding. What do they got that I ain't got!

Did I tell you Gma is cat-sitting her son's cats for the week? Kid you not-3 indoor,two outdoor. Anyway,I'm NOT real fond of her coming home smelling like stranger. No....I've been a good boy about it. I HAVE thought of batting her in her sleep though....

sleepover tonight/games tomorrow
that's what vacations are for usually to try to get things done you don't ordinarly have time for unless you make the time. with janet's new schedule she's gonna have a few longer shifts as she told them she can work 6-12 tues/sat/sun and can't the other days due to errands on mondays, then grocery shopping and the rest of the errands thurs/fri depends which day the shopping comes in. last day of high humidity and heat lower 90s got boomers possible this afternoon and again tonight then only lower to mid 60s tomorrow ideal for sports outside for sure! only gonna last one day then 70s through the weekend except near 70 on sat with what we hope will be a good soaking rain not rained here in just about a month! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hi Handy Andy and family!
Greetings from the Great Beyond! Angel Buster here with a big thank-you bouquet of Forget-Me-Nots and Angel's Breath for everyone sharing in the family COTD with us! The girls took a vote and decided to let me deliver these beauties along with a thank you vote! It was a spectacular day at the old homestead yesterday, being our birthday AND Mother's Day as well, so Little Miss, our mama, was the special guest of honor! Thank you all for making it a most memorable occasion!

Angel Buster

Smokey, Molly,

janet's trying to get
through the remainder of cc seeing she got this page started only after finishing the other page and leaving entries on both fb pages this morning as well. still nice and warm out there and janet's hoping on sitting out which is why the rush to get through stuff online first. no shopping nat's friend screwed u the works and you don't want to be caught out on the roads later on due to UMass graduating today so avoid it with all costs! so now no shopping till after errands on monday, then again at the end of next week barring things going on. at least now janet doesn't have to run around like she's done everyday this week after she's gotten home from work! :) sandy,ab,haley,angels

Boggles my mind.
We open 4 tabs of CC every morning to do our rounds,out of those 4,maybe 1 works right. All the others have missing pics,missing blog space,and just missing all together! I don't get it! And they all rotate which one will be all fritzed out. I need to drink more coffee in the morning,maybe its me. Nahhhhhh.........

Cubicle day!
I love nothing better than a good box to play in. I mean a REAL box-4 sides,no way the creepers can peek in and see I'm not doing anything but sleeping on the job. WHY do they call them cubicles of they have one side open? Humans-make no sense to me!

you and molly jean
are most welcome for the parties to celebrate badges of honor! such a delight to see two in the same family within days of each other as we've had that happen too! felt more like the end of winter around here with snowflakes flying around, wind chills down into the lower 30s and not getting above 47 for a high. supposed to get to 60 today, but janet feels the lower to mid 50s is more in line. sandy,ab,haley,angels

It feels like winter again....
with our temp of 39 degrees with 20mph gusts of wind making it feel like it's in the mid 20s! We had some nasty winds yesterday that knocked power lines down less than a mile away from us in the afternoon when mom generally helps me blog. They finally got it fixed late last night so I'm happy because it means I can meow at my furiends today.

We have a new 'stray' that's decided that this is her new home. She's about a year old, has beautiful gray & white fur, is super furiendly, loves to be picked up & cuddled...& she took right to sleeping in the kitty houses with the rest of the outside crew. What's even more amazing is that they accepted her right away as if she belongs here! Since she's decided this is her new furever home mom has named her Lacie. She's exploring every inch of outside & has put JJ in his place when he kept following her...MOL! Bartholomew still comes by once a day too but he doesn't stay long after he's done eating. As soon as he's done he takes off to the next house so I guess he's decided to be a 'neighborhood within a country mile' cat...MOL!

Patches lost a tooth last night. Problem is that she can't find it to leave for the tooth fairy...MOL! It had bothered her for a couple of days so mom was planning on taking her to the vet today to have it removed but called them when she saw it was gone. They said to watch for any infection & call them back if any was seen but so far she's doing great & ate her breakfast fine. In fact she licked all of our bowls clean...MOL! Mom worries about Patches undergoing any surgical procedures at her age so is thankful it came out on it's own.
The rest of us girls are doing great & are trying hard to stay out of most mischief. That's not an easy task either...MOL! Well, gotta run (literally) so will meow at you again soon.

Hugs,
Monkey for NICE Crew
