Lady


Lady is 15 yrs.old and still plays like a kitten at times, although she spends the majority of her time sleeping. Her fave nap spots are a basket of old potholders on the kitchen counter and an empty cabinet, which I have to leave open all the time. Here, she is watching wildlife on a purrpad on the table. Another fave activity for the Lady is begging at the cat cabinet for treats! She meows quite loudly when she wants her treats! She also loves couch time with me and snuggles in for hours of tv watching. Even though she doesn't like that I took in more cats, she is quite tolerant as long as they leave her alone. I've had her since she was a newborn ( I took her pregnant Mom in when I had my very first apartment, which started a lifetime of rescue for me) Lady has been very healthy and even though we've moved a lot, and I've been thru a lot, she has been my constant companion. I share my pillow with her every nite and I wouldn't have it any other way! -Jess B.

Good morning! Isn't Lady a beauty! Would she be considered a grey & peach tortie? Beautiful coloring! And she looks like a real sweetheart. I love the pic of her crossing her legs! So proper, like she's posing!

Emma's Kat said...

Btw, I like Kat's Katty Vo-kat-ulary and Kat's Chatter! Any more suggestions?? I'm gonna try an finish getting the list typed sometime today and then everyone can see if I've forgotten anything.

Kim said...

Good Morning my friends!!! I'm sorry that I missed everyone yesterday, WHAT A DAY!!!

Jess, you've give Lady the perfect name! Just look how ladylike she's sitting in the pic on the left. She is so pretty and her color is just amazing!!! Thank you for sharing her, she's gorgeous!

Well, Simon is not going to Seattle, however, he is most likely going to Northern California. My second choice said she wanted to be thought about if things didn't work out with the first family. Long story short, things fell through with the first family, through no fault of their own. They would have been such a great home for Simon. My second choice is also a great family! I'm very lucky to have been given such great options for my baby boy!

We have to new pets! Sally and Molly Brown. They're...RATS! I'll post a story on them with my other blog, in a day or two. Don't say gross, they're very cute, very clean, and very friendly. Did you know that Rats are the cleanest and smartest of all the small pets? AND, they're litterbox trained!

Well, I need to read yesterday's posts so I'll be back later.

Kim said...

Good grief, another day of poor grammar and spelling!!! ARGH!!!

Riquel said...

Good Morning! Lady is very pretty...I like the buff markings on her fur. She is very cute.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Lady is a real beauty. Look at those unique colors. And you get a sense of her personality and composure through these pictures.

And Jess, you have had her since she was born, in fact, you had her mom, wow. And she "hooked" you on cat rescue. What a great story. Thanks much for sharing. I'll be adding Lady to my favorite cat photos.

Maybe sometime you can post a close up of her face, looks like the stripe down her nose is beige??? Does she have any white fur anywhere, or just the beautiful peachey beige?

She was well-named, what a beautiful Lady.

DEBRA said...

Hello efurryone!

Lady is just a stunner. I bet she is as sweet as she looks. What a lovie little baby she is! Jess that is great you've had her since she was born. I bet you have lots and lots of good memories!

Kim said...

Jan, wanted to make sure you got my comment about Flumpy. He is so beautiful!!! His fur looks SO SOFT! I love his story of how he came to be the supervisor of the household. That you and you're hubacnd are the staff is so funny! And he takes care of Meepsie, how sweet! I'm so happy to finally get to see the famous Flumpy!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Kat,
It was Katnippia who suggested "Kat's Vo-cat-ulary", it is cute. Kat's Chatter is cute, too, might be better used for other postings, reference. Bet we all got a million of 'em, ha-ha. Like I said, it's a clever group.

Also, we do need to emphasize the purpose of the "secrets" and DLS -- "Dirty Little Secrets" -- is NOT to exclude anyone. It's much more fun the more are in on it.

Certainly don't want anyone to feel they are being left out or we are talking about private stuff just between us. If we had private jokes, well, that's why there is email.

danielle said...

Good morning Fuzzies!!! I have a DLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lady is just beautiful!!! She looks just like a lady.

I want to see the rats. I can't wait.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Oh, and I wanted everyone to know about Pet du Jour. Got an email from the "Blogs of Summer" that my nomination was being disregarded since Rita had posted the blog was "Closed".

Since I nominated PDJ, noticed several others did as well. I really enjoyed Rita's blog and it was great to go back and forth between Kat's and Rita's blogs.

I have always felt (ahem) that the closing is only a temporary phase, anyway. Maybe I'm just grabbing at straws cause I don't want to see her go...???

I'm trying to think if there is anything we can do to get PDJ at least up for nomination???

Claire said...

Jess, what a wonderful story of love. She is a beautiful girl, I love her face. It is wonderful that you have devoted so much love to helping many cats over the years but she is still #1. Bless you.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

First things...well,first: Lady, you are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your picture with us!

Hey: how about "Catalist" ?

Good morning all!

katnippia said...

Good Morning Fuzz Family !!!!!!

Lady you are a very beautiful young 15 years old. I just love your coloration. Jess, you are truely a special person for taking in her momma when she was pregnate.

Hey Deb ! I know your "Dirty LIl Secrets"
Muahahahahaha

Karen C. sorry I missed yah last night. Stressful evening at work, I think I still have a booty.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Oh, catalist is good.

Or modify just a tweak to Kat-alist???

The possibilities are infinite here, what with interchanging CAT and KAT. What a clever group!

Kat, you'll have to keep all these catchy names on file, whatever you don't use now, you may need later.

Well, Karen C should be on her way to "free" little KC in a few hours. Hurry up, Karen!!!!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

And you know, Kim, Rose has been strangely quiet about the UPS guy who delivered the camera. Notice how she never responded to any of the questions? Hmmmmmm.

Also, I wonder if the catnip came yet? It was coming USPS Priority, not UPS.
Hmmmmm....! Just wondering.

Did Rose ever say if she got pictures of the UPS guy????

katnippia said...

ML - i don't recall her saying anything about the UPS Guy. There were a few questions about it, but no answer. I wonder?

Well off to walk to pupskies, and to go pick up and application.

Emma's Kat said...

Rose!! You got some 'splainin' to do!! Now! ;)

Deb - I love Kat-alist, but I want people to see the link and know what it is. Like you said though, ML, I will definately have to keep all these terms written down for future usage!

Emma's Kat said...

Cecelia - How's Bubbles doing post surgery!!??

caspersmom said...

Lady you are aptly named because you look like a regal lady. You look so soft and cuddly. Love your coloring. Jess, thank you for sharing Lady with us.

Am having trouble posting as it's to early for me. My favorite is sleeping until seven and I have been awake for about an hour now. We Californians are not used to Eastern type of weather, which we are having now. It is 79 degrees and very humid. Just typing breaks a sweat on me.

Oh BTW Kim. Our son had a rat when he was young. I think I posted this once before somewhere, but he kept pestering me for one and so I caved in. Darn if I didn't get attached to him. His name was Herman. Got so angry at our sons when they accidently killed him. Got over it because they really didn't mean to do it and they were really remorseful also.

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

Lady is perfectly named, and she is a beauty! Jess, how lucky you are to have been owned by her always.

KIM--Thank you, yes Flumpy is VERY soft, and has a beautiful plumey tail. When Meepsie was a kitten, she thought it was a marvelous toy. One day she put a BIG bitey on it--that's the only time in almost 5 years that I've seen Flumpy hit her. Even then, it was just a bop on the top of her head!

I wonder if Rose just KEPT the UPS guy? You're right ML, she has been very quiet about it!!

I know a COUPLE of DLS's!! USPS says that Danni's will get to her on Saturday-but I don't believe them. If anyone wants to know what it is, just email me! Except Danni, of course...TeeHee. Deb's is just beautiful...TeeHeeHee!

For anyone who didn't see it, Gheeri's Servant posted in the middle of the night, to wish Flumpy a Happy Birthday!! Thank you, GS! It is also her daughter's 5th birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISABEL!!!

momsbusy said...

jess, lady is beautiful. her colors are so befitting one of her regal position in life. she even knows when to assert her voice to get her point accross. "I am to be fed my kitty treats NOW!" so sweet you share your pillow with her everynight. thank you for giving us a glimpse of your precious baby.

momsbusy said...

mpd is infecting me!! ooo, that rhymes!

cecelia, how's bubbles?
rose, we need ups man details.

i know a dls, a dls, a dls. hum hum hum. MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

momsbusy said...

happy, happy birthday isabel!!!!
may all your wishes come true!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Hey, Mumma,
When you say Danielle's DLS will get to her on Saturday, do you mean the thing I emailed you about, the *******? Or is there another one out there for Danni?

Good grief, Charlie Brown, this is getting con-fusing.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Oh, Kat, you must have a section for blogger's afflictions, such as MPD, the dreaded blogger virus. And the various strains. Ha ha.

Maybe we'll have to submit new diseases as we get them. Ha ha.

Rascal said...

Lady is correct to demand that at least one cabinet door be left open at all times. In my house I would prefer all doors be left open at all times, but my humans are not smart enough to learn this trick.

Gail said...

Another one of my grankitties. She is a beauty.

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

No, No, ML, this is MY dls for Danni, the one I told you about that I was going to send to Rose. Nevermind, I'll email you...Good Grief!!

MOMS? ROFLMBO? Oh, I think I got it--the polite version!!

I did NOT stay up all night(unlike some people I know), but I went to bed laughing at the pictures Casper's Mom sent, and got up laughing at Kim's BAAAD joke!

Talk about Bad Jokes--it's headed for 103 here today--that's BAAAAAD!!

Emma's Kat said...

Kathleen - How are you today? And Cairo & Rosie??

caspersmom said...

Yep, 103 in Washington is not good. It's suppose to head to 106 here in Northern CA. I'm sure not looking forward to it as I have to go to town when I would rather stay home. Got to do my volunteer work at the library, then do errands. Aaarrrggghh, on the errands.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISABEL. Have a fun day. Will check back in after din-din tonight. All of you have a great day.

LOA said...

love the lady we had a cat like her her name was Freackles and she was my hubbys baby and no lady ahahah

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Well, Jan, now I am totally lost. Who knows how many other DLS's are floating around Kat's here. Oh, happy happy Danni.

Can't believe the temps in WA State? 103???? It's not even that high in Dallas (my hometown), and Big D is much hotter & dryer than Houston. Although Houston is miserable in it's own special way...sweaty, humid, steamy. Guess when it gets "too hot" doesn't matter where you are.

Okay, Kat, you must add ROFLMBO to the Voc-Kat-ulary, 'cause I dunno what that is.

Kathleen, how are you and Rosie and Cairo doing these days????

Rose, where are you? We want to know about this UPS guy. Now!

Meowmepurr's Mumma in Washington State said...

LOA--welcome back, and Thank You for your sweet comments on my sweet Flumpy!!

ML-ROFLMBO= Rolling On the Floor Laughing My Butt Off (most usually seen as ROFLMAO-the less polite version)

KAT-I hope you're taking notes!!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

KC UPDATE:

Deb just called, lil KC is FREE!
She is in the car and Karen and Company make their get-away. YEAH!!!!

The shelter was not nice about it, apparently, but it is a done deal.

YEA, confetti falls...yea yea yea KC...

danielle said...

I can't read or type much but go to my picture site if you like Jake.

Victor Tabbycat said...

She commented that she finks no one is readin her bloggie, but that's not true! I am! This poor lonely bloggin kitty needs help, but I don't haf her email. If any of you know her, please let her know her bloggie is brokened. Fanks!

Oh, an puleeze cum see my new pictors. Specially if you want to know how to play wif toys. Fanks!

Bonnie Underfoot said...

I believe Lady is a dilute tortie! Lovely girl. I request my treats wif the same purrseverence. And I cross my paws. It's the ladylike fing to do!

Kim said...

Mr. Victor, I would love to come see your new pictures! Thank you for your polite invite!

Still working on yesterday's post. MAN, did I miss A LOT or what??!!!

OK, tattoo pics are now posted on my blog, FINALLY!

HAPPY BRITHDAY ISABEL!!!

Rose said...

quick note on the UPS guy...
.......HYAK!..........
No Richard Gere, all wrinkled, sweaty, and apparantly no "strong enough for a man" deodorant........
.......HYAK!...ptooey.............
My UPS guy from Edison, now, HE can be wrinkled and sweaty FOR DAYS! And I love the line Karen C suggested: "you look Hot, would you like a drink?"...num-num...like Emily says... :P


Hello Lady! You Do have pretty colors in your FuZZ!! So, you're a "Sassy Senior"?! I think the bit about sharing your mums pillow is the sweetest thing I've ever heard! Big squeezes, please, like Loa always says!

I'm going to add everyone's name to my address book, so, like it or not, you're gonna get "Jersey Fresh" DIGITAL pictures on a regular basis!

ML! We revieved the catnip just a while ago! I gave first dibs to Emily with the not-so-little fabric bag of Nip-have several pics of her PLASTERED, and Louch-ing it up for the camera!

I know some Dirty Little Secrets!!!
~~~~ML, Danielle AND DEB!!!~~~~~~
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm dirty little secret...Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-!!!!

Blogger's frustrating me as I'm trying to make The Royal's site look better. I wrote a shorter bio (thank Heavens!) and it saved it to My Profile, but hasn't changed it on the template...ML e-mailed me a tutorial, gotta go see whai I've been doin' stupid...
Another thing!! I kept getting an error message when I clicked on the "blogger" icon to go back in. Ended up having to reboot, and then it's undecided if it wants to let me back in or not. Wierd.

Kat, when I click on Blogs of Summer, I just get a white screen - why would that happen??

I rathr like Kat's Vo-Cat-ulary, but ML is right, keep all suggestions, 'cause they may be needed in future!

Need to look up Jenn's e-mail so I can spam her with pictures! Oh, she may be in Canada by now for Vaca...probably the Only place on the North American Continent that's COOL! The Northwest-103F?
Why, that's indecent!

Wanna check on a few sites...also, spend some time sorting Blogger-stuff, so I can start adding links and stuff...

Chat Later

p.s. In case you were wondering about the mailman? Don't. Drier and no B.O., but no Derek Jeter, either...

Rose said...

Hey Victor!
We just visited your site and saw your toys!! It's unfortunate that our apartment doesn't have stairs to play on, like yours, but we LUV your toys!! We have to show you some of our favorite toys, too!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Hi! Just talked to Karen C. again. The "vicious" KC has had a preliminary vet check & has her health certificate. She is ready to FLY! CAN'T WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW. Karen C. did warn me that this "man eater" KC, will want to chew ML & my fingers with her little teefies! OHH,,so scared! AHHHHH....Karen C. says that KC hasn't stopped purring. AWE!!!!!!!!!!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Hey there, victor tabbycat, went to the blog and tried to leave a comment. They have "comment moderation" turned on where they must approve and then post any comments. Unfortunately, there is no email for her.
Does anyone know how to get in touch with them?

Gheeri's Servant said...

hola, Fuzz Pack! How's doin? I just came back from some finalizing with PetsMart for re-entry to the company. I can't wait to start grooming again, but I'm nervous, too. Lots has changed since I worked there, even though it's only been 6 years. As I'm typing, Gheeri is sprawled across the desktop right in front of the speakers. As if! How DARE I try to listen to BonJovi while I type/write?! LOL The Tobe-meister is laying on a rug next to me, and the dog is scared sh!@less by my feet because there's a BAD thunderstorm here. She's a thunder-phobe. Actually, she a lot-a-phobe, lol. Anywho, thought I'd drop by and say hi!

Kim-thanks!!!!!!

Victor Tabbycat said...

ML, do you fink maybe she gave Blogger the wrong email address? I wish we could tell her!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

I was just checking the site (http://daisymaemaus.blogspot.com/) to see if there were any clue how to get in touch.

She may not realize she has the blog set up to not post comments until she marks for post. Do you know an email address?

I was thinking of contacting tech support and seeing if they could help out, they should have a working email, it appears she has not chosen to share it. She's got some beautiful cats.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Well, Deb, I'll break out the steel mesh gloves for tomorrow. Maybe the full body armor??? And let's not forget the stun guns.

I mean, this is a one-pound 5 or 6 week old kittenwe're talking about.

Can't wait, just keeping my fingers crossed about Missy.

Rose, glad to hear you got the nip. Sorry I missed the call, was out walking Ms Bear.

So sorry I sounded mad yesterday when you called. Thought you were a Humana person calling, and I had about had it with them.

If you didn't know, while waiting for Medicare to become effective 7/1, Charley switched to Humana in Feb, canceled back to Medicare in March, all before he was actually on Medicare. We even got a cancellation letter. Now Humana says it will take a few months to actually cancel and are collecting the premiums. But, get this, since we canceled in March, they are denying any/all claims. Whhhhaaatttt!

Again, sorry Rose.

LOA said...

MMIWS u ar welcome and it good to know u girls dont read my comments ahahahahah and she how bed i spell ahhahaha Rose i just gat your side in the mai i love your babys so u can send me pic all u want when i cant sleap i love comin on her and seing all the babys thank u ladys her is my email icelandic57@ hot mail PS MY RIQUEL IS HAVING A BIRTBAY 7/27

LOA said...

ahahahahah look at my spelling birtbay hahahai need help BIRTHDAY

Gheeri's Servant said...

Oh, boy... A FUZZY BIRTHDAY COMING UP!!!!!

Emma's Kat said...

So, GS! Did you get my email w/pix?

Cecilia said...

Lady you are a pretty girl. I love your coloring.

Karen C. said...

Lady has such beautiful fur! Very pretty colors and she doesn't appear to be 15 at all. She does look as though she's earned the spot on your pillow, Jess. I hope she's there for many more years to come!

I think Kat Speak would be a cute title for the list.

I'm trying to post really quickly due to the fact that I was VERY LATE getting to work and now need to be a model employee (or at least look like one).

Shhhhh! The 7 week old, 1 pound kitten with the words FRACTIOUS and UNCOOPERATIVE on her shelter papers has stopped purring, licking, exploring, and play-nibbling on my daughter Kelly's fingers and is now curled up asleep in her lap, per a recent phone report. The baby KC no longer hisses and doesn't huddle up in a scared kitten ball anymore. Her ears and tail are up, alert and happy (when awake), and she wants to purr, cuddle and play. She was friendly with all the vets too. If she's in your lap, she'll climb your shirt and up to your shoulder to play with your hair.

Oops - gotta go...people coming.

Karen C. said...

one more thing for those who don't know - LOA'S BIRTHDAY IS TOMORROW!!!!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Deb, oh, Deb, come back down to earth and post NOW. You know what I'm talking about.

I love KatSpeak. Kat, what do you think????

Riquel said...

and she's gonna be oooollllddd!!!
LOL...just kidding mom!

Emma's Kat said...

I love that! KatSpeak, and written just like that. Hmmmm...I think we have a weaner, er....I mean winner!! Ok, now I gotta finish the list. I did start it, honest!

LOA said...

ja but u ar right behind me kid ahahahahahah u ar old ahahhaha

Emma's Kat said...

Deb, ML...and I can't remember who else had the conversation about Kim's tattoo...Anyway, have you checked out her site?? She posted the pix of her tatt and her new hairdo! Sexy momma! ;)

Kathleen said...

Hi all,
Yup going to get up to 103 where I am. It is a Spare the Air day which meant that I could ride BART (subway) to work for free, however, whenever they do this they turn off the air. Dressed in a suit today b/c I had a meeting, soaking wet by the time I got to the office!
Anyway, positive cat update: Cairo has stopped terrorizing Rosie (that I know), Rosie is getting very good at growling and hissing, and it appears that Cairo may have given up on Rosie. Now if Rosie can only stop being so paranoid. Hope this truce holds. My boyfriend is taking Cairo to his place tonight so that Rosie and I can have our time and then he is taking Cairo to the vet tomorrow.
Someone is pooping out of the two boxes that I have (sometimes). Any suggestions?
Can someone explain the whole secret thing to me? I'm confused...

Simba said...

I's mad at Kathleen...I wanted to be Rosies online boyfriend, and I don't think she ever told her about me. So now my feelings are hurt...my mommy told me all about Rosie, and how pretty she was, and how we kinda looked alike. I got all excited...and then I never heard anything...oh well, guess I will have to move on...*sigh*

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Simba - don't worry, I bet Rosie hasn't had a chance to get on the computer and see how handsome you are. After all, Cairo's been terrorizing her. But, Cairo's going on a sleepover tonight and Rosie will have the computer all to herself...
Midnight

Simba said...

hmmm...I don't remember mommy telling me about Cairo...what does SHE look like? *growl*
maybe Rosie can talk to me tonight.....but I might be sleeping...I have had a long week. We have this grey cat that lives with us, mommy calls her Indigo, but she doesn't talk to me, she is kind of snobby, Indigo that is. She is always terrorizing my friend Charlotte, so I can understand how Rosie feels. Munckin, she is all these funny colors, she smacks me sometimes...just cause I am trying to sniff her rear end! But she can sniff mine all the time, and I am not supposed to get upset. So Rosie and I have something else in common besides looks...roommates that give us a hard time!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

HELLO TO ALL! Sorry about not posting earlier. What a day!

Okay, first: WE SOLD OUR HOUSTON HOUSE!!!!!! Fireworks, confetti, and all that jazz! We have to be out by the 3rd. No problem...had movers in to bid today and hired one.

Aha, a birthday for Riquel coming up.....fun time for DLS's! Loa, I love your blogs! Don't worry about spelling, half the time, my brain and my typing don't work together at all!!!!!

ML: Get your iron mesh gloves ready for tomorrow, KC sounds like a "killer"! Can't you just picture her curled up and sleeping with Karen C.'s daughter! Oh, the horror! Be afraid....be very afraid.....!!

EVERYONE CHECK OUT ROSE'S BLOG, NEW PICTURES OF THE ROYALS!!!

KatSpeak is purrfect!!!

WHAT A GREAT DAY! LOVE & KISSES TO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!

Kathleen said...

Congrats Deb!
Yes, Cairo hogs the computer so when she is away...
Plus, Rosie is a little guy shy, it might take her a little time.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Oh, everyone, if you haven't checked out Rose's blog, do so today.

She has got the best pictures, just too cute. Of course, she has great [actually, royal] subjects, but she is learning to use that new camera so fast.

Oh, her blog is at: http://roseandtheroyals.blogspot.com/

Cecilia said...

Hi All. Just wanted to tell everyone that Bubbles is fine after his operation. He hates the E-collar, but I hope he will learn to tolerate it. I posted some post-op pics on my blog.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

CONGRATULATIONS, DEB!!!

Selling the house, liberating little KC, no more torture doctor...doesn't get much better, does it????

It's been a good week, for the most part.

BTW, Charley's nurse, Beverly, came by today, said the agency told her NOT to stop coming. The therapist and the lab tech also called to schedule appointments.

Kathleen said...

Hey Rose,
Is your black and white (name?) a Turkish Van, looks an awful lot like Cairo.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Everyone, go leave Bubbles good wishes and cheer, he is not a happy camper.

Cecilia has the neatest clock to count down the time left until Bubbles can get out of the E-collar.

And lots of great pictures to document this whole "adventure".

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Kathleen, I just emailed you about my secrets.

Do you have more pictures of Rosie and Cairo??? Sure would like to see them. You ought to start a blog, too, just post a few photos.

Rose, have you posted how you got Emily? She really is beautiful.

Karen C, any chance of a photo of lil KC today????? PLEASE....!!! I honestly cannot stand this waiting.

Deb, you're right, I'm not going to sleep a wink tonight. We'll be up on the blog all night, won't we. wonder what we'll be talking about? Hmmm.

Karen C. said...

ML - I have an old digital camera (no screen where you see the picture before you take it and doesn't work with XP - that's how old) which I have left with the kids. It holds 80 something pictures. I told them to fill it (so far, it's up to 40 something). I'll be posting some on my kitty blog tonight and e-mailing some good ones (I'm assuming there will be good ones) to everyone when I get home. Stay up late and you'll see them....

Karen C. said...

Sorry you have to wait so long, but the kids all have XP on their computers and I've kept ME on mine for the camera and some other things. They aren't allowed to use my computer, so photos have to remain in the camera till I get there. (I'm building myself a super computer with all the latest good stuff, but I'll still have to have my second one running for the camera.) I can't wait to share pictures!

Karen C. said...

By the way, I know an EXCELLENT DLS about Danielle - MUAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Karen C. said...

One more thing...if you check out my kitty blog (Grr Midnight & Cocoa) today, feel free to comment on Grr's extra large tummy. We may need to sign her up for a gym...

Karen C. said...

I mean in the last picture - where Grr is standing up...

Kathleen said...

Have started taking pictures of Rosie and Cairo just with a disposable. Finally learned to leave a camera out so that I can get some hopefully good shots. Wouldn't know how to create a blog if it sat on my head, we'll have to talk further.

Rose said...

Hi again!

What Exciting Times we are having!

Deb: CONGRATS ON THE SALE OF THE HOUSE!! Wow...2 weeks from today and you'll BE IN MARYLAND!
In 24 Hours, K.C. will be IN HOUSTON!
HooooRahhhhh!

Danni will have her DLS tomorrow...Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha!!

I really am having a blast with the camera! Kathleen, Emily, (my black and white FuZZ) has short hair...no plume of a tail like Cairo! But I fancied a familiarity in Cairo's face with Emily. Also, someone mentioned (sorry, I forgot who!) that, except for her ears, she resembled a British Short Hair...if so, maybe she comes across being Queen honestly!
ML, I adopted Emily when she was, I was told, 5 weeks old. The woman had bottle fed her and her 2 brothers her husband found in a dumpster behind where he worked. The vet estimated the kittens were around 10 days old. It was hard to leave her brothers behind! But I was living in the Transitional Housing Program at that time, and I was worried I may have broken an unwritten rule. David, who I mention often, ran the Program, and used to have me kitty-sit his cat when he went away, and I took care of a Louche Tabby for 4 months for a young pregnant girl also waiting for a housing voucher, but not in David's program. I picked Emily up when I still had a hundred miles left on a huge $1,200.00 mistake of an Oldsmobile! I thought about fibbing about Emily, but I just came out with it, and David laughed at me and said "I never told you you couldn't have a cat!
Emily LOOVES her Uncle Davy! Soon after I got her-3 weeks, actually, I was hospitalized for a month, and he would go and feed her, give her fresh water and play with her each and every day! I think she was a little disappointed when Dave bought me home! No, not really! She must have been asleep in the bedroom, I called her a few times, and she kinda stumbled out, all groggy, seemed to suddenly remember me and hopped towards me, meowing a 'hello'! I picked her up and cried! All I kept telling the docs was "I have a kitten, I gotta go home!"

Oh!! Will there be a pic of K.C. tonight!!!

I'm getting ready to monitor the flight tomorrow...ML, you're going to be on until you have to leave for the airport, right? Yeah, Don't forget the Maille Suit!!
What was their problem about releasing her today??! Honestly!

ML: Listen Up! I didn't think twice about how you sounded when you answered the phone! Actually, I didn't know it was you! I thought you had a bodyguard! No, really, I still know how to talk to "irates"-second nature! Especially easy when the "irates" arent irate at me! That catnip is amazing!! I was playing around like I was snorting it, and do you know, I think I got a buzz from it?! Emily just was lovin' the little 'nip pillow! That's her own special pillow now...I gave the Young Royals just a pinch of 'nip, but they didn't seem to notice...maybe it wasn't enough. Either that, or I heard kittens don't have any effects from it until their something like 6 months old. I really was afraid to have Brutus partake of it! He might put a hole in the wall, I dunno!

ANOTHER lightening storm moving through...Emily's been under the bed the better part of this afternoon!

Yeah, she's warming up to the kittehs on her own terms...the routine now is the three of them "help" me make my bed in the morning. Emily chases Marigold and she gets it right back from Marigold...Brutus suprises Emily (and me!) sometimes with a head-butt or a nose to nose hello...This afternoon, Brutus was asleep on my legs (yes, took another pic for comparison to the other picture on the site), and Marigold was sleeping on Emily's num-num sweater. Emily came striding straight towards us, was going to hop on the sweater, noticed Marigold sleeping there, so just hopped on the ottoman next to my legs and a sleepnig Brutus. She stayed there quite a while, but wasn't ready to lay down...I don't think it's long in coming. Especially now she can "get happy" with that awesome organic 'nip!

Ohboy, I may have set a record...the Weather Bug just chirped at me...think I'll go check it out...
wow, Loa's birthday AND Riquel's birthday...My head's a buzzin'
(really should put the catnip down now...)

Will check in later!

Okay, first: Rose: It is catnip, not "Rosenip" -- LOL. I can see Emily loves her nippy pillow! Your description of Brutus on nip is hysterical!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOA & RIQUEL!!

What kind of operation did Bubbles have? I have a suggestion about the e-collar thingy. When I had "the girls" spayed, instead of the e-collar (which they hated), I decided to use a product called -- second skin patches. It is a breathable "bandaid" like patch, it sticks on the boo-boo & the kitty can't lick at the stitches & wound. To remove the "second skin", simply pour baby oil over it and let it sit for a few minutes, then peel it right off. The patch will stay in place for at least a coupld of weeks. My vet now uses them instead of e-collars. How is that for my creativity? It really works, I promise and kitty will be much happier! Let me know what you think.

I've kind of been out of the loop for a few days. I've been chained to my desk at work. My boss spends about 1/2 of his time outside the office, but he was in all week. When he is there I am busier than usual. Also having problems posting at work. Blogger doesn't seem to be working reliably. Now I'm home and my mouse isn't working! Plus I've had the weirdest week. My ex-husband is crying on my shoulder because he's getting divorced again. (It just keeps getting better...NOT!!)

Lady is beautiful! Its funny she likes to sleep in the cabinet. Most of my cats over the years have liked to hide away in small spaces.

Wanted to commeent on yesterday's cat- - Flumpy is one gorgeous hunk of fluff! Would love to see the belly fur.

I'm off to check out the other sites. I want to see the royals, little Miss KC, and Kim's new 'do and tatoo. Hope the mouse cooperates!

Gheeri's Servant said...

Kat, no I didn't get them. Unfortuanatly Yahoo was being stupid yesterday and I couldn't reply and half my messeges didn't come up.... :( So sorry...

katnippia said...

GS- glad to see you back. i hope you are able to get back in a petsmart grooming.

I hope everyone had a wondrful day!

Emma's Kat said...

Okay, I'm back! We had a game night at our church. Pretty fun. We all bring something to chow down on and a fave game. We have a few tables set up and a few games going. Anyway...

Deb - Congratulations!!! Are you gonna miss your house? The new one is so gorgeous!

ML - I can imagine you and Deb aren't gonna sleep a wink. I'll wake up tomorrow and check comments and there will be 100+ from you and Deb! LOL! How do ya like my little scroll bar thingy for the Blogs of Summer. The list of blogs started pushing all my sidebar content to the right bottom of the blog because there have been so many added. So I discovered the scroll bar from Lyn @ Bloggin' Outloud. Cool huh?

Kim - You still awake? Probably not as I know you have early risers! How has your day been?

caspersmom said...

Loa, I have always told my kids that THEY were getting to old for me. Not the other way around. Our youngest will be 42 at the end of the year.

ML was so glad to hear that the nurse was going to still be coming around. Hope it stays that way.

Deb, congrats on the selling of you house.

Oh Danni, I also know your DLS!!

Well it didn't get as hot as they said it would by six degrees. Once it gets to 100 what's the use. Tomorrow it's suppose to be 113 here. A blast oven, and I have a memorial to go to.

Kim said...

HI Kat. I'm here for the moment. I broke down and took an Ambien tonight. It's starting to kick in so I'm typing very slow. Sorry I didn't really get back to you. Today was a very stressful day both at home and at the Armory. One of our soldiers died in Iraq. It was an accidental shoot. Alan was the seniour officer and had to deal with the news media. He couldn't say anything so he gave the Protcal info to the person who could take care of haneling PR and Media. It was a bad, sad situation. He was so young. He just graduated in 2004. He joined the Army to make money for college. It' just a sad situatuation for his family and friends. Anyway, it' hard for his Unit too. what a sad day. I hope and pray that they wont take Alan. He did his time during Desert Storm, while he was still regular Army. He's in the National Guard now, full time guard. I don't want him to go, I'll be lost without him! If he has to leave for his tour of duty, would anyone want to come and stay with me for the year or so that he'd be gone?!

sorry, Ambien making me groggy and emotional. I think I'll go to New Zealand for a while or back to Hawaii, less guilt if I go there instead. I need to lose 15 pounds though 20 would make me SUPER HAPPY! OK, getting loopy now. I am going to go to bed in just a minute.
Kat, share your tattoo's too!! Must show them, you mentioned them.

Deb, check out the tattoos and the do. I have better pics that I'm going to send everyone, before and after pics

LOA said...

katnippia said...

Kim- i'm sorry that your day was not a very good day. And with a very sad event to boot.

caspersmom said...

You are a youngster Loa. Hope you have a great day on your Birthday. Birthdays are special no matter the age. I am 67, oops no I am 68. I keep saying 67 for some durn reason. There is a saying out there when you ask an older person their age they say 39 and sticking to it. Well, for some reason I keep saying I'm 67.

Hi Riquel, love your blog, love your cats.

Everyone, check out Missy's blog for pictures of KC and the schedule. In a very few hours, KC will be flying to Houston.

I'm going to try to get a few hours sleep, if possible.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Ahhhh...am I the only one up? Well, I know Karen C. is up because I just saw the cutest pictures of KC!!!!!!

Kim: Hopefully you are sleeping. I'm so sorry for your husband's loss. Our soldiers are so brave! I am sending prayers up right now for all of them & that your husband won't have to leave -- he has done enough! Take care & I will talk to you tomorrow!

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...
