We feel so famous lately because we keep having pictures and news on the cat blogosphere. Mom went on this morning and saw this:
We want to thank Ann at Zoolatry for making this great graphic. There was one made before as well that we didn't get posted but we thank you still. Now that all the help has left the cats seem to finally realize that he isn't leaving. They are getting closer and more comfortable being around him. Patches finally forgave Mom and is sleeping next to her again. Hopefully we will have more baby and cat pictures soon.

Easy Like Sunday Morning!

It has been a whole week since Mom and Dad came home with this little screaming thing. We are adjusting better than Mom and Dad expected. Patches is starting to forgive Mom and sitting on her lap again. Nemo even gave some rubs to Owen's head. We want to thank you all for visiting our blog and leaving such great comments about our new addition. The basket started out as a way to introduce the cats to the baby. Owen has taken to the basket and loves to sleep in it for naps. It is about the same size of the bassinet at the hospital. Luckily Owen sleeps well at night and Mom is starting to recover and is able to move up and down the steps a lot better. Mom is excited to feel better and to get back to doing the blog. We don't have many pictures of us with our new brother because we don't like to get too close yet.Here is Patches checking out what is going on.

After Sunday all the family leave and Mom and Dad are on their own. We'll see how that goes. Mom has to go back to the surgeon on Tuesday to see how her healing is going. We'll try to post more this week with more pictures.

Owen Malcolm
born 4/15/09
7lbs 4 oz.
20 inches long

Guess what everyone? We have a new addition to the family. We are happy to show off little baby Owen.
The abduction wasn't completely successful so mom had to be cut open to get him out. Our mom and dad were gone for quite a few days and Mom is still in some pain. Updating will come as soon as mom feels more up to it but here are some pictures to tide you over.
P.S. Today is our Dad's birthday. We have lots of birthdays in April in our family. We wish him a very happy Birthday.

Tuna Cake

Here is the tuna cake I got for my birthday.This tuna cake was really yummy!

Thank you to everyone that wished me a Happy Birthday. It was a pretty nice day. Now my mom and dad are trying to get this baby out so they can be home for the weekend. We will probably not post for awhile until Mom has time to help us. There will be a lot of visitors for the first few days so Mom hopes she will have time to give an update.

Happy 5th Birthday Patches!

This is my very first picture. This is when Mom fell in love with me.

Today is my birthday. Five years ago I was borned on my grandma's farm. My mom and dad saw me when I was only a few days old. Mom had been wanting to get a calico cat and I just was born at the right time. They told Grandma that they wanted me so she kept her eye on me. I was borned in a chainsaw box and tried to escape several times. Grandma finally took me and my litter mates inside and mom and dad came and visited me many times. Mom says I'm getting old because I'm getting some gray hairs. My mom cat was a dilute calico so I say I'm just changing colors. I'd show lots of pictures of me as a baby but that was a time before mom and dad had a digital camera.

This is me as a tiny kitten at one of my Mom and Dad's visits.

I will post a picture of me and my tuna cake tonight. I have lots of tuna and temptations and lots of nip to share so teleport over and we can celebrate.

Tomorrow morning is when Mom and Dad will go to the hospital to start the abduction. Hopefully we will have a baby home by the weekend. We are not so sure about this but Mom bought us Sheba to butter us up so maybe it won't be too bad. We will post pictures and info as soon as our Mom and Dad get home with the new baby.

Fantastic Friday

We would really like to thank everyone who has purred and prayed for our family so hard. In every way your purrs have helped. We are so glad that we became a part of this community. It had seemed like we were going to have a rough year and Mom was hopeful with the start of each month that this month would be better and we can finally say that April is going to be a good month. Our Dad's biopsy came back great and he has to be seen every 8 weeks instead of every 6 weeks is good news. Our Mom found out yesterday that she got the job she was hoping for. Although she is sad to leave the people she is working with and nervous about starting a new job with a new baby she is excited. We are happy for her because she will be making more green papers and won't be so crabby about money. For the baby news today is the baby's due date. They have that abduction thing set up for Wednesday next week and Mom will be at the hospital all day but hopefully then she can get that baby out and bring it home. Oh and Patches' birthday is on Tuesday. She will be 5 years old. Mom still needs to buy her a can of tuna and her 5 year old candle. We will be sure to post pictures of it. This weekend is supposed to be nice so we are hoping to go out on our leashes like the pictures. We are sick of the cold weather and want to get outside more. We hope everyone has a great Easter weekend!

Mancat Monday

Mom still hasn't had that baby yet. If she doesn't have it by Thursday the human vet is scheduling an abduction or something like that. We got a little bit of snow yesterday. It is all sunny today but Mom said that looks are deceiving and it is not very warm out. We did get to go out on Friday and had our first run in with a squirrel. It was making all sorts of noises at us. At first we wanted to eat it but the leashes got in the way. Then it was just annoying. It finally saw that we weren't going to be able to chase it and went away. Well back to being a lazy mancat.

Another Dad Update!

As you can see Nemo also fits into our two story townhouse. As you can also see, I am not pleased. He is showing me his belly and being submissive but it does not make me any more happy that he is in there.

Mom is taking over our blog to give you a Dad update. We said as long as we got to post a picture of us today she could talk about Dad.

We want to thank you all for all the purrs and prayers. We think they are the reason we can report such good news. At the biopsy and doctor was really concerned because it came back in about 4 months time. The first biopsy was moderate dysplasia and he made it sound like this looked exactly the same and it was either the same tissue or worse. This biopsy came back negative for any abnormal tissue. The thing they took off was a pus filled granule that was probably caused by the first biopsy. He still needs to go back for regular checks but instead of 6 weeks they will be 8 weeks apart. This is also great because it means less payments to the doctor as well as him not having to have a camera stuck up his nose and down his throat. It is a happy day at our house. Thank you all again for all the purrs and prayers for us. That is one less thing for us to have to worry about. It means a lot to all of us to have such support from people we have never met.
