Mancat Monday

Figgy's hammock.
Hi everyone, it's the Mom today.

Last week, I went to visit my friend S and his kitty, Figgy.  Figgy is about 20 months old.  He is a handsome orange mancat.  I love visiting with him.  He loves to talk and play - sometimes he'll play fetch with me for an hour!  He has so much energy.

Anyway, S had seen Carmine's hammock, and I thought Figgy might like one, so I sent his dad the link in case he wanted to get one for Figgy.  He decided it was a good idea and ordered one!

So when I was over there last week, we got it out so I could set it up for Figs (my nickname for him).  It is made a little differently than Carmine's, and the instructions were not very helpful!  I played around with it for a while and tried all kinds of configurations trying to figure it out.  Oh the joys of being blind as a bat, haha!

Meezer Monday

The neighborhood flame-point Siamese.
Hi everyone, it's the Mom today.

I take a walk nearly everyday around my neighborhood.  When I first started doing this, D pointed out an adorable flame-point Siamese in a window (that's him to the left).  There are actually a few people with kitties in that building of row houses.  Someone also has a black and white cat. 

Anyway, when I first started walking around the neighborhood, I saw this adorable flame-point a lot.  But suddenly he disappeared - for months.  

Then, one day, we were walking by his house, and D said, "There's an orange cat in the window!"  I asked him if he was sure it was an orange cat and not the flame-point Siamese.

Thankful Thursday

Lita hangs out on the floor with one of her toy mice.
Hi everyone, it's Lita today, and we are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

The Mom was talking to her friend, J, earlier this week, updating him about life and how Carmine and I are doing.  The Mom has known J since college, and they have been good friends a long time.  In fact, J helped the Mom a lot when she thought I was headed to the Rainbow Bridge at Christmas.  He called a bunch of vets and places to find out who did in-home euthanasias because the Mom couldn't handle it.  Now she has a lot of options when the time comes, but I don't plan on going anywhere for a while - you all are stuck with me! 

I have really been struggling with my arthritis lately.  Sometimes I even show my pain, which I never do unless the pain is really bad, so the Mom knows it must hurt a lot.  She has been keeping me comfortable with some pain meds, but she really wanted to get me on this stuff called Adequan.  Angel Jewel used to get it for her arthritis.

Mancat Monday

Carmine in his heated bed.
Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

It has been nearly 80 degrees here the past couple of days.  The Mom wonders why mes likes curling up in my warm bed when it is that hot.  Wes does not has our window air conditioner put in yets, 'cause the Mom has to get some kind of special brackets for it.  So it be hot in heres during the day.  

What can mes say?  Mes likes it warm!

Thankful Thursday

Carmine loves hanging out in his leopard cat tree in sun puddles.
Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Today, wes is joining Brian's Thankful Thursday blog hop!

See my new cat tree?!  Our friend, E, sent it to us as a housewarming prezzie!  

When the Mom came home one day a couple of weeks ago, hers found a Chewy box y hers door, and this was inside.  Hers was so excited that she didn't even wait for D to wake up to help hers put it together - hers figured it out by herself - and there weren't even any HBO words!  MOL. 

This may not seem like a big deal, but it is for the Mom because the directions were only in potos, and with hers very, very limited vision, hers has a hard time with pictures.  So hers was happy hers figured it out alones....with a little help from mes.
