How We Met

He cried outside the condos for several nights. One day as I was leaving for work, he tried to walk in! I thought surely this cute fellow has a family. He is just at the wrong door! But there he was again. So finally I prayed and promised if he is here tonight, I will foster him. He was there. So we went to the vet and he has no microchip. No collar. No one in the neighbourhood knew him, and no one reported him missing. So now he is my baby!

I'm purring load to know Misty and Quincy are both doing fine.
Thanks a lot for telling me about Sammy and his Mom. We miss them so very much and think of them all the time.
Yes, we're going to move to the house over the next months but first Mom wants to make an enclosure in the back yard to be sure it will be safe for us. We're going to have a bunch of new places to explore!

Mom's Grandma & Aunt are coming home tonight and they will be staying to spend Easter with us. They live in another city and it's been quite long since we saw them last time. We've spent most of the day helping Mommy with the laundry and the cleaning of the house.
It was a sunny autumn day, windy but still warm. We now told Mom everything looks purrfect and that she can relax for a while and help us with our blogs.

I hope Auntie & Grandma bring us some Easter treats! He, he! I remember Auntie likes coming our hairs, so I will enjoy having her home.

I hope you all have a very blessed Wednesday and a super nice week too!!
With lots of love,
from your friends always,

Hi Vika
Today we woke up to 4" of new snow..can you believe that??? After all that nice warm weather..snow!?? How dare Old Man Winter make a comback and ruin our Spring...mom had to turn the heat back on today, it is only 28*.

Mom got a part time {real part time} job only 3 days a week starting around 1:30 to 2pm..she can go over. She is walking 1 dog and feeding the dog and 2 cats and then coming back home..she is getting $100.00 a week, but that is all. Better then nothing until something more permanent comes along.

She works Tues, Wed and FRI and the dog is a Bassett Hound named Sadie and 2 cats are Trickles who is a b/w longhair male and Barnabas who is an all black longhair male.

Trying to warm up today..mom took 2 of our beds downstairs already cause it was so warm out...so the 4 of us are fighting over 2 beds..Win gave up and jumped on moms bed, Kelsee is in the closet, Kali is in a bed and I am roaming about.

Have a nice afternoon!

Wanna be called Viktor & VIKA???
Today it is 55* outside and so mom went outside when we got home and she pulled a lot of dead leaves out of the dirt for her flowers, she swept the dirt up, straightened the yard up a lot and made her flowerbed edging staright.

You just know we all had to go outside with mom and supervise and be sure she does a good job so our yard looks pawsome, right??

Mom took me to the Vet this morning for the follow up to see if all was alright and I am 100% good to go.

My Vet said "Ok Handsome, you are good to go home and take care"...I like my Vet, he calls me handsome all the time. Not Winston, only me!

Have a super afternoon

♥Monday Mews From Buenos Aires!♥
Hello my dearest son Vika!!I hope you're having a great night!! Yes, we know about your new fur sisters Quincy and Misty and we're more than glad they're living with you. You have a lovely family and a very kind and caring Mom!! How are the girls doing? Do you know how is their Mommy doing? We pray for her every night. We also miss Sammy.

We had much trouble to log on CC but we finally did it. It has been raining for four days but we're still having warm weather. We're having autumn and Mom tell us the city is full of fallen leaves everywhere.

Mommy's ankle is a lot better although she has not gone back to work yet. She will be off work until the end of April. Mom says she has now some more free time but instead of helping us with our kitty blogs, she has been accomodating ornaments and hanging picture frames in the walls at the house she bought with Dad. MOL! Bad Momma.

Yesterday my parents and my Grandma had a great time at the Purr Fest. This event was organized to help the homeless dogs and cats at our local shelters and it was a complete success!! We raised tons of food and medicines and 2000 pesos to help the fur babies in need.
Mom is more than happy about it. Many local designers took part of this fest and sold lovely stuff for cat lovers. Mommy wanted to buy everything!! He,he!! She was also able to meet many wonderful people who works for the animals, some of them even live close to our home.

I'm now having a nice napp with Sally.

I hope you have a pawesome week and a purrfect night...
With much love,
from your friends always,
Lola & all the Buenos Aires Kitties!!
Love ya lots!!

April Fools Day, Viktor
Thank you, my friend. Yes I am feeling much better. I am back to pacing the house and meowing...and mom couldn't be happier...MOL!!

Today it is 60* with sunshine and clouds and it is really windy, too. WE got outside and the wind blows stuff around outside, so we come running back in..what scardy cats we are...MOL!!!

Mom has windows open and all heat off today. It is just pawsome, but it is supposed to get cold again WED through the weekend and be only in the 30's-40's, but we will take today and put it in a jar.

I helped mom clean the house and dump garbage today. That was fun...I actually watched her sweep and mop and I was chasing things she was sweeping, then after she mopped the floor I put my paw prints on it...that is helping, right?? Then I followed her down to the dumpster to dump the trash. Am I a good helper or what???

Our BIG CATS won yesterday against KC, 4/3...just got one last run to beat them on Opening Day!! Go Tigers!!

Have a pawsome afternoon!

My Dearest Son ♥ Vika...
How are you, Mom Jenny and all the fur babies doing tonight?...

Things have been doing well for all of us here.
We had rain this weekend and spent most of it napping while our parents kept working on the house. Unluckily there haven't been more crickets visiting me, but you never know when one of those little bugs will show up.
Mom's foot is doing fine. Dad took her to the movies last night and after that they went to an Arabian restaurant for dinner.

Next weekend there will be an event named Purr Fest in Buenos Aires. It's an event for cat lovers where many designers will show their cat stuff for humans and for kitties. Mom can't wait to go. She thinks it's going to be much fun and best of all, the money they rise, will go to help the local dog and cat shelters.

I hope you have a purrfect night. I send you a huge bunch of whisker kisses and hugs...
With much love,
from your friends always,

My Little Son ♥ Vika...
You will never believe what happened yesterday: I caught a cricket!! It was pawesome because it came through our living room window and we live in a 12th floor. The window was a little bit opened and I thought I HAD to catch him. Things like these don't happen twice. MOL!!
Mom didn't know what was going on when she saw me jumping and making funny noises. Sadly after a lot of work she took the cricket from my paws and said they were nice bugs. Crazy Momma. She put him over a plant and closed the window. Bummer!!
Mom is doing much more better. She's walking without her crutches 2-3 hours per day. Her foot swells and she gets tired but she's not in pain anymore and she fells glad to be on her way to recover. Thanks a lot for your get well wishes for her.
With lots of love,
from your friends always and forever,

I sure hope you're right!
And part 1 of your master plan is in place. Team Steve beat Team Norway in the tie-breaker this morning and that means all three feline curling teams are for sure going the medal rounds!
1st place - Team Mallow (Sweden)
2nd place - Team Mike (Canada)
3rd place – Team China
4th place – Team Steve (Great Britain)
Tomorrow Team Mallow will play Team Steve and Team Mike will play Team China to decide the matchups for Friday’s medal rounds. But we are ALL in, so let's get some rest today so we can leave China shards all over the ice tomorrow. -- Mike

Well, the final tournament standings are in
and Team Mike came in at #2. That means we play China in the semifinals on Wednesday and how we do in that determines whether we play in the Bronze medal game or the Gold medal game on Friday. Team Mallow is #1 and Team Steve has to work a bit harder, they tied for 4th with Norway. That means they play a tiebreaker game tomorrow which they need to win or they're out of the medal rounds. So let's cheer for Team Steve tomorrow while we enjoy our day off tomorrow and get lots of rest for the for the semifinals! -- Mike

How pawtastic is that? My sister, Kieara is on Team Mallow. I can't wait to wipe her tail on the ice. MOL. Our younger brother, Sebastien, is competing in the Four Kitty Bobsled events with his team-mates Exit, Sammy, and Ernie. Sure hope they don't crash.

Have a purrtastic Monday.

Hi Vika!
The tournament is well underway and we have won 5 games out of 7. Here are the standings after this morning's games:
1st – China
2nd – Team Mallow
3rd – Team Mike
4th – Team Steve
Right now, it’s looking really good for all of us kitty teams to get into the semi-finals on Feb 19th and the Medal rounds on the 21st.

We have our last two Tournament games tomorrow against the USA and China to determine the final standings. China will be tough, but Team Mallow beat them yesterday so hopefully so can we. Good work! -- Mike

♥ Happy Valentine's Day!! ♥
Good evening dearest Vika and Mom Jenny!! How are you?
Thank you ever so much for your get well wishes for Mommy. She's feeling a little bit better today. We miss our friends a lot. Mom is super glad to help us with our blogs tongiht. She has a new armchair with a footrest in which she can sit keeping her foot up over a pillow. It is cozy and Mom can use her notebook when she sits there.
Sally and me have been exploring the armchair making sure it's good enough for Mom. (Tee-hee!) There is a photo of me doing that at the bottom of my page.
We hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow!!
Our parents will have a special meal at home. Grandma will be cooking since Momma can't walk yet. She uses crutches to move inside the apartment but she's not comfortable with them. I don't like them either, in fact I've been hissing to them since Mom brought them home.
It's windy in Buenos Aires. We've been napping with Mom and watching TV with her. Many thanks for your love, friendship and support. They mean so much for Mommy.
Sending you tons of love and special whisker kisses,
with much love,
from your friends always,

Curling - Final Practice
Okay, curlers, we’ve worked on all the skills and you all looked great in the Opening Ceremonies. But I sure didn’t know they were going to keep us in a dungeon until it was time for the show!

Now it’s time to get down to business. The Round Robin starts on Monday in the Ice Cube Curling Centre. Our information package says that “ ..the design features a combination of smooth and well-rounded contours reminiscent of the shape of the curling stone, which is accentuated by the bright polished surfaces of its façade.” So, here is the schedule:

Team Mike:
Feb 10 – vs. Germany & Switzerland (double header)
Feb 11 – vs. Team Mallow (Sweden)
Feb 12 – vs. Russia
Feb 13 – vs. Denmark
Feb 14 – vs. Norway
Feb 15 – vs. Team Steve (Gt. Britain)
Feb 16 – vs. USA and China (double header)

There could be an extra tie-breaker after that before we go into the semi-final and then the medal games. Come on, Team Canada, let’s bring home some medals!

Curling – Third practice
Sorry to be late (Huff! Puff!) We had to make the Royal rounds and then change out of our Coronation finery. Busy day today!

Everyone has been practicing their sweeping technique while waiting for their skips to arrive, they’ve gotten very good at it and it’s time now to talk some strategy. Mike directs Timothy to throw a rock, with Vika and Uncle Buddy Budd sweeping the rock stops in the outer edge of the target area. Now Mike tells UBB to throw a rock. UBB stands there, waiting for Timothy’s rock to be moved away as they’ve been doing so far in practice.

Uncle Buddy, you goof! Do you think when Team Mallow has a rock sitting there and it’s your turn to throw, they will neatly move their away so you have a clear shot? Nuh-uh! What you have to do now is either throw your rock so it curves around Timothy’s to get even closer to the button, or you have to hit Timothy’s rock and knock it out of the way.

UBB winds up to knock Timothy’s rock right out of the park, but to his surprise HIS rock bounces wild and lands out of the scoring zone also. In today’s practice, Mike says, we’ll practice knocking the other guy’s rock out of position so that ours winds up in a better one.

Mike directs UBB to take a shot with the help of the sweepers his rock lands in the second ring. Now, Vika, see what you can do about that. VIka lines up the shot and with the help of the sweepers his rock lightly taps UBB’s to the outer ring of the target, while landing just short of the bulls-eye. “Hey!” Vika remarks “this game is a bit like pool, too!”.

Now you’ve got the idea, says Mike, and now he directs Timothy to pretend Vika’s rock belongs to the opposing team and see if he can take some points away from them. Timothy gets busy figuring the angles while Mike moves down to the end of the lane to direct the shot. Another practice is underway.

Curling – second practice
Mike walks into the curling rink and is happy to see his team members already there, practicing moving the curling rock down the ice. Many different styles are being used, the most creative one is Vika, who starts the rock sliding and then rides it down the lane like a bronco, using foot drag power to bring it to a stop right on the bulls-eye (called the “button”). Mike flips through the pages of “Curling for Rockheads” and points out the problem with this method:

“The current WCF rules states that the rock must be clearly released before it touches the hog line.” Kitties begin to snicker and nudge one another and Mike assures them that it really IS called that before continuing,

Now, if our shots don’t count we can’t win our medal, so we have to play by the rules. You HAVE to let go of the stone, Vika. So that’s where the sweepers come in. Mike demonstrates by standing near the button while Vika throws a rock, which travels down the lane, veers off slightly to one side and slows down just before reaching the outer ring. Now Mike directs Vika to try again, this time while UBB and Timothy move ahead of the rock, using their brooms to rub the ice in a sweeping motion. Mike explains that this melts a molecular layer of ice for a very brief moment, resulting in a molecular layer of water. This creates an even lower friction and allows the rock to travel farther before slowing down.

The result is what all the kitties can see: Since the rock is dragging less on both sides, the rock will travel straighter. If it’s moving too fast, of course, we need to stop sweeping. Now Mike moves down to the target area while UBB takes a shot. Vika and Timothy wait for Mike’s direction as to when and how fast to sweep. The rock sails neatly into the target area and lands touching the button. No bronco riding required.

But after practice, let’s have some ride ‘em races just for fun!

Hi Vika!
Thank you so much for helping us celebrate our birthday yesterday! Even though it's a little sad not having my brother here with us, I just know he was watching and enjoying the show! :) He was always a little character! And I had a blast, too! Thanks to everyone who brought toys and treats! I sure appreciate it! I'm dropping of a big thank you vote and a little goody basket filled with all kinds of good stuff! I hope you had as much fun as we did! Hugs and purrs

Autumn (and of course, Summer!)

(snicker), Vika,
I am very glad your sister is on the opposing team. She’s got quite an arm on her, though. -- Mike

Hi Vika!
And your esteemed family, too, of course! Just wandering around bored today so I thought I'd drop off a birthday invite for you. It's my birthday Tuesday, but it's also Autumn & Summer's birthday, too. Of course, I am MUCH older than they are. I'm coming in a 16 years old next week. Whew! The youngsters are only 3. Ah, to be 3 again! On the other paw, I do get all the special privileges. Best spot by the fire, first at the food bowl, getting to sit in any lap I want. Eh, maybe being the old guy isn't so bad. :)

Hot Rod

PS - Maybe you can haul your rock over and give us a curling demo at the party! :) ~HR~

Curling – First practice
The three teams are assembled on the ice. Mike & A. Mallow arrive, carrying ten copies of “Curling for Rockheads” which they distribute to the team members before giving a quick overview. They also hand out pairs of special curling shoes. One shoe has a normal sole, but the other has a slippery sole for sliding down the ice.

While Mike gives the overview, A. Mallow supervises as the kitties put their shoes on and of course Steve has to try skidding across the ice on the slippery shoe. Following close behind is Gracie Twinkle-toes, who collides with Steve and they go down in a graceless heap. Vika completes the furry pileup.

“I guess we should learn by doing (sigh)” Mike says, so Timothy, since you are the Lead, you get to throw first. Timothy (who obviously has not been listening to the overview) picks up the heavy curling stone and winds up to waft it through the air but Mike stops him. “It’s not a football! Watch”

To demonstrate, Mike takes his position with one foot against a brick that has been frozen in place at the back of the lane. After pushing off, he carefully twists his stone by the handle to aim it left or right. As he releases the stone, it slides down the ice, much like a bowling ball. A. Mallow and Steve then come onto the ice and furiously sweep in front of the stone as it slides toward a big bulls-eye painted on the ice at the other end of the lane.

“The object is to get the stone as close to the middle of the bullseye as you can.” Mike concludes, and then he and Mallow and Steve each take their team members to separate lanes where they spend the next while practicing the techniques of aiming and releasing the stone. Next week, we’ll add the sweepers.

Yowie, Vika
Our Angel Jezebel was missing those pointy ends, too. Humans didn't really know too much about that back in the day, and Angel Grandma & Granddad had it done to her. She was pretty good with it, she just never liked digging in the litter box and it took Mom about 40 years to learn why.

Hope you had a good time at Babushka's and you were good there. -- Mike
