Sweet Nighty Nite

 I was tired. I jumped up on mom to nap.


But while I rested on her chest she
typed on the laptop, she was moving
too much.

I got down to nap with Chey, 
well really to nap ON Chey. 

Misty



Cats, Cats and More Cats

 Cats, Cats, and MORE CATS!!!

Everywhere!



I feel so our numbered!

Mom went over to help Aunt Kim move
some furniture the other day and look,
she came back with pics of Bubba and Zora!

CATS!

Sleep, Wake, Sleep....Please

 Mom can't sleep.....

             so she said, "I can't sleep, you don't sleep"!!! 


Really wish she would
turn that light and the TV 
off so we can sleep.

Play Time and Being Loud

 They do play. Lily don't like mom to see her playing with Misty though but she is getting better about it. Used to mom would see her and then she would get ugly or run off.


Mom was able to get some pics of them playing 
the other day.
 






Makes mom happy to see this.
However, mom can't figure it out cause
Lily is very vocal when playing with Misty.
So mom is not sure if she is showing her rear
or just being loud.

There are those times that mom knows that 
when the hiss comes after the loud meow playing 
that its not good. Mom calls Misty away. Sometimes
Lily gets the water bottle taken to her.

Oops.....I have never had the water bottle
taken to me.

I have jumped off the couch and started
towards Misty and Lily when Lily is
being ugly, going to break it up but
Lily runs off. Can't let her be ugly to my
new sister.

Coat of Many Colors

My sister from another mother than 
I came from is so 
pretty.

Look at her posing for mom
to take her pic in front of
the Merry sign.


Look at her. Beautiful coat of
fur.


Sort of like a coat of many colors. 


I like Lily Bit. She is taking to me
little by little.
We play some then she gets mad
at me but I will win her over.

Russian Blue and Tortoiseshell

 Mom loves to read up on things.

When I came to live with her she did a lot of reading on cats in general and then more on Tortie's and Tabby's. My mom was a Tortoiseshell so that makes me part Tortie. But with my markings I am a Tabby too....they call us Torbies. According to my markings I am a Mackerel Tabby. That is determined with the strips going down.



Since Misty has come to live
with us she has been doing
reading up on her. 
She thought right from the
start that she was a Russian
Blue mix. Lately there have been
markings showing up on her coat.
They are gray just like 
Misty but the markings are
lighter. 

Misty's lighter markings
look like this.
They call this a Classic
pattern. So Misty is
a Russian Blue Tabby
mix with a Classic pattern.


It was hard to tell much about
her till recently cause she
was just a baby. There are
several types of gray cats
but we are pretty sure she is a blue. 
She has the Russian Blue 
smile 

And the triangle shape
face. 

The internet talks about their
striking green eyes but 
Misty's are still changing. 
The bottom of their
paws stay a mauve 
color.

Russian Blues are
sweet-tempered, and loyal cat who 
will follow her owner everywhere.
The internet also said that
they are very social creatures and
highly intelligent animals.

Yay, now its time to talk about me.
Tortoiseshell cats are beautiful creatures 
affectionally called “torties.” Best known as “the divas 
a Tortoiseshell cat would be rare if
were of the male gender, we are all 
pretty much females.

I know that if you know anything
about cats you know that 
most cats have a CAT-I-TUDE.
Well for us Torbie's since we have
Tortie in us, we have not only
the CAT-I-TUDE but we have
what is  known as TORT-I-TUDE.
The great part is a Tortie is
considered good luck.

Mom loves both my bad traits and my
good traits. Just like Misty, she loves
her also.

Curling up on Mom

I am growing fast mom says!
Plus just this past week I have
taken to curling up next
to mom to sleep
instead of on top of her.


But even with that, there are
still days that I prefer 
to curl up with mom and her
have her arms around me.

Problem she said was that it
was hard to edit pics on the 
laptop!
But she put that aside so that I 
could sleep on her and worked
on the pics later.

That was sweet!

Laying Low

 Hi, I have been laying low lately, have you missed me?

(chilling with mom)

Still adjusting to that little gray rat being at the house.
We run and play some but I am still upset with mom
for bring her home. I jump her a lot just cause
she is THERE. I don't hurt her, I just tell her
to back off. Mom tells me that I am showing my Tortie side 
when I act like that. I hope that I can change my
my attitude. I forgave mom some last night
and I snuggled with her several times
in the middle of the night. Mom even gave me
some great head rubs.

Becky AKA Zora or Zora AKA Becky - Who Knows

 Mom went over to Aunt Kim's the other day and she Misty. Not sure why, Chey did not get to go. I did not get to go. What's up with that?

Mom said it was cause Bubba was there and Misty knows Bubba. They used to play together.

WHATEVER!

Mom did show me this pic though. It's Zora AKA Becky.


I wanted to know why her two names were so DIFFERENT.
Mom said it was cause when they got her, she was
a stray over by Kim's mom's house, that they were
trying to come up with a name. Aunt Kim said Zora.
Uncle Mark said NO!
Why?
The reason behind Uncle Mark's no was this~
He told Aunt Kim that out of all the letters in
the alphabet, she wanted to use the Z twice for
the cats. You see the other cat, the first cat
there is Zuzu. So Aunt Kim calls this black
beauty Zora and Mark calls her Becky.
Mom calls her both.
Poor cat is probably so confused. 

Anyway, like me she loves to sit in the
sun puddles that come through that
window.

I Won - Best Festive Pet

 Mom entered this pic of me in a Festive Pet contest for the Dept. of General Services.



This is the department that mom works for. 

IT WON.
I WON.
Or was it Mom's photography?
Nope she says it was me.

Sweet!
We got a $25 gift card, can't wait to see from where.
Petco? Toys? Food?
Have to wait to see when Mom goes back to 
work next week.

Do You Believe

   Well All I have to say is that it is not oh my breed. 

Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, in Canadian folklore and American folklore
is an ape-like creature that is purported to inhabit the forests of 
North America. Supposed evidence of Bigfoot's existence is based on a number of disputed video recordings, audio recordings, photographs, visual sightings, casts of large footprints, etc


Do you believe?

Mom watches these shows that talk about this two
legged creature all the time. Mom believes in a lot
of things but she is not so sure about this one, cause
if its been seen as much as they say, why has no one
caught or killed one? And why when hunters go out
looking and hunting for it, does one never shows?
Its just all strange. 

I have never seen one, and I am glad!

Crazy Cat MOM

 

I think mom has turned...


Turned for sure, from the dog person
she once was to a 


crazy cat woman!!!




I don't think she bought any of these but
she really thinks the one with the 
cat crawling through the lines is 
really cool.

Photo Shoot

Mom set up this spot in front of the tree.


She wanted to get pics of us furs and she
started with me.

I however was not having anything to do with it.
See the gray in the right hand corner?
Yep, that's me jumping over it all.


Me again, right hand corner.

Mom gave up. But after a bit of playing 
I crashed on top of the cat tree.
Mom played then.





 She said she will work with the other two later,
I wore her out.

Finn From Facebook

 Scrolling through FB the other day mom saw these pics.

Here is what it said under the pics~ 

Finn, a Golden Retriver had to wear a cone for 14 days, so his owner got crafty with them.

(Star Wars)


Poor doggie.......but creative.
So glad it was not me.

Queen of the Back of the Chair

Misty seems to think she is queen of the  back of the new chair.   Well, I have news for her... never mind, I can't get up there anyway....
