Photo Hunt-Furry

The theme for this weeks photo hunt is Furry. This is an easy one so mom said we could do this with no problem.This is Nemo's fur after bunnykicking his cigar for a long time. His belly was less furry after this.
This is Patches and her furry belly soaking up the sun.

Hi guys, just a word from Patches. I want to apologize to my mom and dad for puking so much yesterday. Mom did not feel well and was trying not to puke herself and I had a hairball so I woke them up to the noise of me trying to puke. I am not one to stay in one spot so I leave a puke trail. Mom made dad clean it up. I'm sorry guys. I'm also sorry that I puked again after mom left for work. I really don't mean to but sometimes I gotta puke. Mom always yells because we have only 2 rooms with carpet and I always puke on the white carpet, never the linoleum or wood floor. I just wanted to say I'm sorry. Me and mom seem to always be sick at the same time.

Fashion Friday

Again we have older pictures for fashion Friday. Mom says we need to get new fashions so we have something to show off. Mom hasn't found anything lately but she will keep looking. This is how we stayed warm at our old place. When we lived in Wisconsin we lived in a very old and very cold house. Mom would put our sweaters on us to stay warm. We also would wear our sweaters when we needed to go in the car in the winter. It made us really easy to deal with mom said.I think its very hard to find outfits to match my own colors.

This sweater no longer fits either cat but it was very warm.I have to clean my brothers dirty ears.

Sad News

We have some sad news to report today. One of our grandma's cats went to the rainbow bridge yesterday. No one really knows how old he was and we always thought he was a young cat because of his size but we are kinda thinking maybe he was older. It seems as though he started to lose weight but eat a lot, he lost some teeth and then lost control of his bladder. He had an appointment to see the vet but was ready to go. Even though this cat was not nice to us we are sad to see him go.
Goodbye Steve-o or Squeekers.

Mancat Monday

We haven't really done anything all weekend. It was nice. It got cold again and we don't like that. Mom and Dad went shopping this weekend and they always spend more money on us then they do themselves. That's OK with us. They bought us different foods to try. We are usually pretty picky on what we eat and mom is trying to find something that we like that isn't full of junk. We will never give up our fancy feast stinky goodness or dry food though. Now we have 3 different bowls on the floor to see what we eat. It is like a buffet. Here is my mancat Monday picture. I'm very manly.No Patches that is not a turd. It is my nip cigar. Every mancat needs a cigar.

Finally Friday

No new fashions today. Mom is lazy I think. It seems to be a recurring theme. Mom keeps saying she is so glad that it is Friday. We want to thank Daisy and Everycat for editing our eye pictures and emailing us tips. Mom is going to play around with Photoshop this weekend and see what she learns. Until she learns it everyone might have to deal with our glowing eyes. Guess what else mom has been too lazy to do this week? Take pictures. Not a single picture was taken since our Fashion Friday post last week. That is ridiculous. We won't stand for that again that's for sure. It is not like we were not being cute. There were plenty of opportunities for pictures. Here are old pictures of us.This picture is from 2004 at my first Christmas. It is a little bit of fashion for me. I'm very dramatic and love my long scarf and my grandma's chair. I'm cute aren't I?
This is me as a baby in 2005. I no longer fit on that perch or in it for that matter. Mom misses me as a kitten. She says I am much heavier now and crush her when I make biscuits on her ribs. I was shy for the camera when I was little.

I hope mom has newer pictures of us for next week. We need to train her better.

Wordless Wednesday

What an important day in history yesterday was. It made moms eyes leak. This is our look toward the future.Don't mind my glowing eyes. I'm not sure how to make them better and neither does my mom. Any tips?

Mancat Monday-In training

So everyone has seen how handsome I am and how big of a mancat I am today. I'd like to show you how I got started as a mancat. I was not a very manly cat at all when I was brought home from a farm.I was a very dirty cat and very small.I grew up though. Mom says I grew pretty quickly. Can't tell from this picture but I'm wearing a bandanna even as a kitten. This was a month and a half after I came home.This is a recent picture of me. In September I will be four years old. That is my favorite blanket to cuddle with. It has been since I was a kitten as you can see.

I hope everyone is having a great Monday and Martin Luther King Jr. day. Dad has the day off and mom is working at home because at her doctors appointment today she got blood stolen from her finger and arm and a shot in the butt. Mom was curious if anyone has suggestions for dandruff. We are going to try new food but she is up for any other suggestions. Mom has been having troubles with blogger and uploading pictures lately so our posts keep getting later and later.

Fashion Friday

We will show ways mom let us stay warm tomorrow. Mom's car would not yesterday morning so she worked most of the day at home with us. It was nice to have her here to keep us warm.
Now it is time for Fashion Friday. We don't have many fashions but we'll work on that. These pictures aren't the greatest. We are working on modeling for treats. Also the room is messy. Don't mind that.See my sailor suit. Mom was going to edit it and make the picture better but iphoto was crashing and pictures wouldn't upload last night so she had to quick do it before work.Here I am licking my lips. Again sorry for the picture quality. I really wanted my treats they were dangling in front of me.
Patches thought she should get treats too even though she wasn't modeling.

Cold Thursday

As you can see we are doing everything we can to stay warm today. The weather people say something about an Alberta clipper being in town. We don't know what that means but we know we don't like clippers getting near our hairs, feet or hoohas so it must not be good. We feel very bad for any cat who lives outside. Mom said she'd open the house to every cat who wanted to come in for the night last night but she couldn't afford to let the heat go out with the door open. We've never ever known it to be this cold before. The news people said its been about 12 years. It sounds like its cold everywhere. Windchill is supposed to get between -40 and -50. We are keeping our mom and dad warm too. They are warm and we like to cuddle with them. Nemo will be posting for fashion Friday tomorrow. It is supposed to be a little warmer so he can model without freezing his nips off.

Wordless Wednesday (Almost)

Sorry we haven't posted in awhile. Mom has been tired. Our dad had another appointment for his throat yesterday. Things looked normal so he is good for another 6 weeks. Please continue to send purrs and prayers for him to not have any more abnormal cells on his larynx. We had lots of snow this weekend and then more snow on Monday and mom might get another snow day today. She's hoping. The high for Thursday is -1 before the windchill is considered. That is furry cold. Here is our picture for the day.As you can see we have been spending a lot of time on this love seat. The love seat is in an alcove with all windows so the sun comes in here and we can see lots of stuff. Patches does not like to share the spot though so its rare to get one of us together.

Photo Hunt-Aftermath

We have decided to do the photo hunt for this week and give it a try so here it goes.

The theme for this week is aftermath. At first we weren't sure how we were going to show aftermath and didn't really know what it meant so mom had to explain it. She said the best way would be to show the before picture and then the aftermath of it so here it goes.This is us with our new catnip toys. We play and play and lick and bunnykick them.

This is the aftermath. Nemo bunnykicks so hard he makes hair from his belly fall off and then we are both lazy for the rest of the day.

Hiding places

Let me tell you, our humans have been lazy on letting us post this week. We've been giving them lots of opportunities to talk about stuff by what we do. We got some grass for Christmas and dad is growing it for us. I, Patches, finally found it on top of the fridge so have started to go up there to eat it even though its not quite ready. Nemo has been jumping up there and then to the cabinets and then meows because he doesn't know how to get down. Mom and Dad run to get the camera but by that time we have snuck off and then just been lazy. Mom found a new outfit for Nemo but has no energy to go upstairs get it, bring it down to Nemo and take a picture for Fashion Friday. That will have to wait for next week. These pictures are a bit old but mom always laughs when she sees them. We like to hide in weird places and she will call and call for us but we don't come out. At least we are really cute when we do it.

Tattletale Tuesday

OK, so our pictures of having to take the bath make it look super terrible but really its not that bad. Afterwards, they turn the heat on high and wrap us in towel and treat us like babies. For Patches, she gets to use the blow dryer and fluffs her up real nice. Mom loves to cuddle with us when we get all dry because we are so soft. Mom is so glad that we are so good and just kind of walk around in the water. We really have not been doing much lately. We did help with taking the Christmas decorations down. We like to jump in the boxes and inspect everything before it gets put away.
Nemo has been doing lots and lots of napping just like usual.
Sorry this is so late in posting. Mom was trying to get it ready last night and our Internet went down and just got back up. Ugh, technology

A Bath!

So we started out the New Year trying to be less crabby but do you know what they did to us since they had the day off. They gave us baths. Nemo gets a lot of dandruff but greasy and we are making sure there are no more fleas. We haven't had a bath since we moved in August. We were not pleased about it either. Lets just say we are trying to not be crabby, but its really hard. Hopefully this doesn't continue throughout the year. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Mom apologizes for the fuzzyness of the pictures but she says its hard to track down a wet cat that is constantly shaking the wet off.

Thursday Thirteen-New Years Resolutions

Happy New Year everyone. We can hardly believe that its a new year. We stayed up late to watch the new year come in but it didn't look any different than the old year. We wanted to share our New Years resolutions with you. Hopefully we can stick to them.

1. Welcome the baby into our family and not be grumpy about it. (This is number one because it might be the hardest, especially for Patches)

2. Enjoy more time with my nip cigar I got for Christmas.
3. Spend time seeing the rainbow with my nip rainbow.
4. Being more nice to my sister and not bothering her all the time (Nemo)

5. Tolerate my brother more so I'm not always hissing at him (Patches)

6. Not drop as many bombs in the litterbox (Nemo)

7. Convince mom that we need a kitty stroller so we can go out strollering when the baby comes.

8. Not puke from high places so I can hear it go splat and make a big mess. (Patches)

9. Sleep even more in the sun.

10. Maybe not eat all my fancy feast the first night mom fills the bowl. (Nemo)

11. Blog and visit our friends blogs on a regular basis.

12. Not be as crabby.

13. Enjoy the year with my mom, dad and new baby and have fun.

Hope everyone has a great start to the year. We hope this is the best year for everyone. The last few weeks have been kinda sad around the cat blogosphere and we hope it goes better this year.
