Busy time, with new job and all

I work nights as a server so I work more often as I depend on daily pay.  This of course, means more goodies for my cats so forth. They are adjusting to mommy working nights with daddy.  I was able to get some snapshots of my babies on my day off.  They like to sleep with mommy.  Smokey was hiding that day, stormed in the area.

What I came to when I wanted to nap. They took over

 Kitty shut her eyes as I snapped. Grrrrr
 Tigger and Whiskers don't like it I moved into their "bed".
 Whiskers says it is hard to get beauty sleep.
 Kitty being "regal".

New job and 1 year anniversary of Lady's passing.

I haven't forgotten my wonderful friends on here. I have started a new job as a server and I am really picking up hours.  I am thinking Whiskers is stressed from this actually, which I hate. She has peed elsewhere since I took this job. I had to. I could use advice on this please.   The pets are thriving though, mommy is now able to buy special goodies for them with my tip money.  They are loving the cooler temps as I am.

Sadly, this weekend will be first anniversary of Lady's passing. We still miss you, the cats do too.  Tigger was her pal.  Lady, I am sure you showed Admiral and the other cats whom have made their way to Rainbow Bridge. We love you xoxoxoxoxox

update on the strays and the WWE smackdown here at home

Well I have decided to contact the humane society about her cats. My boss said I could go to jail for trying to do the right thing, ie, taking the cats.  I might foster one of them.  Matt and I will take more food this weekend.  It just amazes me how anyone can treat animals that way GRRRRRRR!

As for our home, we are now the house of the WWE Smackdown cat edition.  So many fights.  Yep, my good ole yardstick comes in handy ( to separate not hit them).  Kitty loves to antagonize everyone and Whiskers is such a drama queen about it.  Smokey had let them know he won't tolerate it!  Tigger has been involved with a few scuffles.  Of course it was grocery shopping day, they love that.  It is so much fun to try to keep them out of the stuff.  That right there is a chore lol. Enjoy your weekend and be safe out there.

Ticked off, animal neglect makes me MAD!

Hubby and I went for a walk in our old neighborhood and saw our old home.  Our landlady had 7 cats and 1 dog and her "trusted" caretakers were supposed to watch out for them since she is in a nursing home.  Well we had learned the dog died and so did 1 cat (that we know of).  The other cats looked horrible and the signs of neglect were there.  

I had met the new tenants and they told me that the "caretakers" told them "don't feed the f-cking cats".  I went through the ceiling.  I was ready to take the ones who would come to me right there.  That night, we brought a bag of food and dumped it in their bowl and told them "help is here".  Since we moved out two months ago, their weight has dropped drastically.  What would you all do?  Hubby and I said next weekend we just might snag Mary and keep her here til we can get her to a no kill shelter.  The other cats are more skittish.  I am just livid!!  I am also ticked the "caretakers" accused the neighbors of poisoning them. I know that is a LIE because they have cats and feed strays.  They are like us.  

From our home, all is good.  I found the cause of my vertigo (migraine associated disequilibrium) and I am treating it with diet and meds.  Whiskers and Kitty are still the divas around here.  I tried to get recent pics but those lil stinkers knew how to get me.  Smokey is just being the man of the house and Tigger likes to lounge around. All good here.

Lazy Thursday

I passed on the condolences to Oren's parents.  He was only a year old and they still hurt very much but they were thankful. I said I have great people I know on here.  We have been hit with storms and you can guess how the cats love them, they don't. They are glad to have mommy home as I can spoil them.  Whiskers loves to dominate the bed and the others the food area.  Go figure.

RIP Oren

Hubby and I were very sick and saddened to learn of Oren's passing. This was our neighbor's cat we have mentioned.  I guess he found some stuff the landlord never bothered to clean up.  If you move, please be careful of what you move into.  I feel sick as we were around Oren so often.  I also loved how Oren basically would tell Queenie Whiskers to jump in the lake.

Back to the norm

Mommy spent some time in the hospital but she is fine.  That means Queenie Whiskers is no longer the queenie of the house.  They too have been in the spirit of the Olympics.  This includes judo and wrestling.  I personally love beach volleyball in the litterbox.  Amazing how hard they can toss stuff.  We are happy to be back.  They have tried to own the house but mommy stopped that one lol.

Sunday, August 5, 2012

I promise I will visit all pages this week. Again, some more stress times.  I have a 2nd blog that does tell of what goes on.  Oh we had the Cat Olympics in our home and I have some amazing stories to tell.  Kitty kisses and of course, I have stories to tell of cat mischief.   XOXO

Dealing with vertigo

Misbehaving is so much fun

Yep, they just love to show me their antics.  For some reason, Whiskers and I assume it was Kitty decided to have a fight near hubby's head while he slept.  He wasn't amused but I kinda was hehe.  Kitty and Tigger have had more of their smackdowns and I am thankful nothing has been broken in the process.  They all can tell you how mommy gets peeved when something is broke.  Smokey is still the senior wise cat.  They must know mommy is having some good days with less vertigo so they figure I need "laughs".  I hope everyone is keeping cool, we are.

Sorry not on recently

Mommy still dealing with vertigo.  We try to take care of our mommy with love but we still get into mischief.  Namely Kitty and Tigger doing their smackdown WWE style.  I was able to snap a pic of Kitty helping do laundry.  Gotta love this lil girl.

Cats just want to have fun

Now that our mommy is doing better, she has that camera out again.  Oh, she has great peripheral vision so she tends to catch us doing naughty stuff.  She misses nothing grrrrr.

Whiskers in a box, a nice surprise.
 Kitty being a diva in my chair.
 Kitty wanting to attack Whiskers
 Smokey being so sweet and practical ;)
 Tigger and Kitty wrestling around.  Kitty loves to pester everyone.

Everyday is a holiday for the cats

Mommy isn't feeling too hot lately (vertigo) so I am posting pics. I do have to say Whiskers is a great nurse.
Tigger is royalty in dad's chair.

The last two are feeding time. I just love how Tigger can't seem to find his food.

Happy 4th from our home to yours

May your holidays be a safe one xo

Queenie bee Whiskers is back.

She thanks you for the well wishes, we think she had a "bug".  Hearing her "whine" and try to get testy was such music to my ears. I was worried what I would walk into when I came home from work but Queenie W is better.  I thank all of you for the well wishes and purrs. We think you rock!  Pictures this weekend.

My Whiskers seems to be under the weather :(

She isn't herself tonight and mommy is worried.  Keep her in your thoughts tonight, please.  xo

Kicking back on Tuesday

My friend came over with me and visited our home for a bit. Only Whiskers would come out and be a loving lil girl. Tigger was watching from a safe distance and Kitty and Smokey hid.  I got these good pics of our kitties today.   The first one is Smokey at our feeder, I love how the cats "dig for gold" and make a mess.

The 2nd picture is of Tigger and Kitty. I was trying to get Tigger in this pic but Kitty wanted to ham it up :)

Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde

I remember that tale but in this case, it is a she and she has taken up residence here in our home. You all know her as Whiskers, my sweet tortie.  From yesterday, her antics included antagonizing the other cats for no reason, bullying Tigger off our bed and also taking up an attitude with hubby and I.  She also got my hand (see pic)

Well today when I woke up for work, Whiskers was the sweetest lil cat. She let me love on her and she was purring like a loving lil girl.  Back to being my princess.  Gotta love cats like her, I sure love mine.

Missing Arty Mouse cat.

Cats just love to help me knit

Not much to write about as this has been a stressful week. Thank goodness for my pets to calm me.  For stress relief, I had decided to make a coworker a scarf for her darling daughter.  One of the colors I had wanted to use was a dark pink and it had got tangled up. While I was trying to untangle the mess, Kitty and Tigger had decided to "help" me.  This is was the result.  I had to pick a new color and my coworker just laughed :).

Shenanigans Sunday

Don't let these looks fool you.  This was Shenanigans weekend.  It was a contest to see who could misbehave the worst.  Whiskers loved to nip my hand if I moved the wrong way.  If you touched her the wrong way, Whiskers was a drama queen.  Kitty had antagonized Whiskers to no end yesterday and Whiskers had to discipline her.  Tigger and Kitty got into it many times over the weekend.  Whenever I got my art work out to work on, the cats all wanted to help make a mess of stuff.  Let us not forget Tigger trying to help hubby make dinner (ie trying to nibble).  I love it when Smokey tells on them, he looks a certain way when he is tattling on them. I wouldn't have it any other way :).  

Rainbow Bridge

For our fur friends that lost loved ones, know they are at a wonderful place called rainbow bridge.  They can play and do all they want pain free.  My dog Lady is there and I am sure she is welcoming all of your furbabies.

Wayback Wednesday

I had found these shots of the diva, Whiskers.  The 2nd one is a fave of mine.  She was probably a year old or two.  The first pic she is thinking "get that camera out of my grill" lol.  

This cat was my a stray my mother in law was taking care of.  He brought his family (mom cat and kittens) with him.  How cute :)

When we lived in Lafayette, these were our neighbor cats.  Mowmow (back cat) had a crush on Whiskers. He tried to court her and she was ticked!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

A hum drum Tuesday!

Whiskers has now taken over the bed and home, it is her throne to do as she wishes. Smokey has his hands full keeping the other cats in line.  Today for some reason, Kitty and Tigger have harassed each other.  Yes we have had to break up the fights.  This is Tigger posing for the camera. Don't let the looks fool you, he loves to knock over trash cans grrrr.

 The next two are me trying to snap Kitty.  The 2nd pic was after I called her, she wanted to play lol.

We moved and are back

A few weeks ago, hubby (the cats daddy) suffered a mild TIA and that took us away. He is doing much better.  Then we moved and needless to say, the cats hated the move.  Luckily, they took over the house in no time.  The car ride was the worst part of the move, the cats were ticked.  We miss you

Whiskers taking over our furniture early on hehe
 Kitty back to normal in her hiding spot.
 Tigger doing nothing hehe.
 Smokey relaxing on top of hot laundry lol.

Our neighbor cats

We are pet sitting for our neighbors and this is two of their cats.  Oren and OJ, who now run the house.

OJ might be a kitten but he is becoming king pretty quickly and I will assume he will dethrone Oren ;)

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Sorry it has been awhile with blogging but we are back.  I have a few videos of my babies.

The first video is of Whiskers greeting the neighbor cat Oren.  Oren loves to sneak out of his house.  The 2nd video is me playing with Kitty, my peanut!
