Sammy Sunday

Today it's all about me! I get to tell you how I came to live with Mama.

Mama had a kitty for 17 years & he went to the Rainbow bridge in 1998. The man in Mama's life at the time told her "no more pets". He said it was too hard to say goodbye & he couldn't do it again.
Fast forward to 2002: Mama married my "Daddy" & he got her a Betta fish for a pet. Now Mama was really lonely without a kitty, so she talked to the fishie like he was her baby. A friend of theirs told "Daddy" that he needed to buck up & let Mama have a cat "for goodness sakes"!
So, Mama saw in the paper that the Humane Society was having a special adoption program for kitties & talked "Daddy" into going. She really wanted a little kitten, but my brother & I were the youngest there, at 4 months old. Mama came over to the cage we were in & started petting my brother, Sosa, on the head. I was afraid that she was gonna pick him so I went over & knocked him out of the way!
She looked at "Daddy" & laughed, she told him that she had just been chosen by me. The nice ladies from the Humane Society got me out of the cage & handed me to Mama.......I gave her lots of headbutts & powerful purrs, she just couldn't resist me.
When they told her what they named me, she almost started leaking from her eyes. The kitty Mama had for 17 years, his name was Sam. She also had lost a woofie a few years before Sam went to the bridge, his name was Blackie. Mama said it was meant to be for me to come live with her because I was a black cat named Sammy, that Blackie & Sam didn't want her to be lonely & sent her to find me.
I think she's probably right & when it comes my time to go to the Bridge, I'm gonna thank them for sharing Mama with me!

Playday Thursday....

Mama finally found some batteries for our Red-Dot game........we had so much fun with it!! We didn't get to play as long as we wanted though. Mama got a little worried about Emma, who she called "Miss Huff`n Puff". She played the hardest & was puffing & panting, so Mama thought we should take a break. She did say that we could play later though.......

Emma Saturday

The first thing we want to do is apologize for the crappy way the last post came out. Mama is so trying to figure it all out.

Today is all about me, Emma. I am the most beautiful girlcat in this house (DUH, Mama!!! I'm the only girlcat in this house!). I came here to my furever home almost 2 1/2 years ago. I used to live on the farm where Auntie Lori lives now. I wasn't really very social when Autie Lori brought me to Granny's house for Mama. I hissed, growled & tried to hide so no one could find me. I was not a happy all. Then, when Mama & "Daddy" brought me home I was really p*ssed!! There were 2 strange cats here that I didn't know, one of them (Fes) was almost as p*ssed as I was.

I lived in the litterbox room for 2 weeks & slept in there at night for a loooong time. Mama would let me out for awhile so I could get to know my new brothers, but she stayed right with us. Probably a good thing, Festus & I growled & hissed at each other all the time. She was afraid that Fes might hurt me since he was about 100 times bigger than me. It didn't take very long before Sammy & I were snuggling & grooming each other. For the most part, Fes & I still don't have alot to do with each other & sometimes we still growl & hiss, but I love both my brothers in my own way.

It even took me awhile to get very loving with Mama. I still don't like it when she picks me up or tries to hug & kiss me. But I do get on her lap & I love for her to give me pets & scritches. I give her tons of sandpaper kisses too, that way she knows I love her. I don't like it when Mama gets sad, I usually get on her lap & put my face up to her face & meow that everything will be OK.
So there you have it, a whole post about me. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Pictures of US

We talked Mama into posting pictures of us. We think that we're way cuter than sticky & baby beans.
This is Sammy. Notice Festus in the box next to him.

This is Fes in a box.....he almost always closes his eyes when Mama gets the flashy box going.
This is Emma, probably wanting Festus to get out of the box so she could get in.
Pee Ess to Fin: This is what we usually do when Mama tries to take our picture......hee hee........
Oh yeah, Mama is feeling better, she just ate something that she knew she shouldn't. Silly Mama, she'll never learn.

Sticky-bean & Baby-bean.......

Here's a picture of Mama's little beans she's gonna take care of. Mama got to hold the baby-bean for almost 2 hours yesterday & she even went back today for awhile.
The dad-bean gave Mama this picture, it was taken the day the baby-bean was born.
From now on though, Mama needs to take pictures of US & put them on the bloggy. It's called The Chesney Cats not Mama's sticky & baby beans.
Mama may not comment on the other bloggies tonight, she hasn't been feeling very well this evening. But we're gonna make her read them so we know how our friends are doing.

Sad, Sad Weekend..........

We are so sorry to hear of Pixie crossing the Rainbow Bridge. But we are happy that she is no longer sick. It's just sad for those left behind.

We are hoping that Pixie & Squirmy are getting to know each other & are running & playing together.

Purrs for Squirmy please

UPDATE: Squirmy was injured worse than Auntie Lori thought & the V-E-T had to help her go to the Rainbow Bridge. Please purr for Auntie Lori & her kid-beans, they are very upset, especially the girl-bean as she's the one that was driving & ran over Squirmy.

This is Auntie Lori's kitty, Squirmy. Auntie Lori just called Mama & said that Squirmy got "a little run over" & that she was taking her to the V-E-T. Please purr that she isn't hurt too bad & that she'll be OK.

Why we hate rain........

This our kitchen ceiling.....isn't it lovely?? Rain is gloomy enough, but this just sucks! Mama's been trying to get "Daddy" to do something about it for months, but since he doesn't live here anymore, he doesn't care. He told Mama that he would come down on weekends to work on things, but he doesn't.

We do have a ray of sunshine in all this rainy weather.....the little sticky-bean that Mama takes care of, became a big brother this morning! She can't wait to get her hands on that baby-girl-bean!! At least we know she can't bring her home. So, Mama has 2 weeks off because the Dad-bean is staying home with the Mom-bean. We have plans to love on Mama, ignore her & bug no particular order. We are gonna let her put pictures of the little beans up next week. The sticky-bean has a birthday on Tuesday, so she will get pictures of them then. Mama has been taking care of him for 2 years & she can't believe that he's 4 yrs old already!

This has mostly been about Mama & we can't let that happen too often. We'll make her post about us next time.

We've had 2 whole days of sunshine & have we been loving it! Unfortunately it's going to leave us tomorrow & we have chances for rain for the next 4 days. That sucks, but it could be way worse.
We are purring for all our friends that are in the path of hurricane Ike. We wish it would just disappear & leave our friends alone.

Rainy Days & Mondays.......

It's been rainy & cool here today. Not much good for anything but napping so that's what we've been doing. Waiting on sunshine for tomorrow..........

Thanks everyone for the well wishes for my Gotcha sure know how to make a fella feel special!! I did get extra treats & put in extra snuggle time with Mama, I even slept with her all night! I'm trying to snuggle with her while she's typing this post, but she says I'm not helping.

Mama was getting ready to take her shower this morning & she ran out & got her flashy box........she said she had a once-in-a-lifetime photo op......
I look like I'm nipped out here, but I'm not. (darn it!!) The reason Mama calls this a once-in-a-lifetime shot is that if me & Emma are this close, it usually involves growling, hissing & biting! We don't get along real well most of the time. Not to mention that Emma has the idea that this cabinet in the litterbox room is HERS! She even put the bitey on Sammy the other day cause he was up there with her......that's strange because she loves, loves, loves Sammy. Me....not so much. Oh well, we have to change it up sometimes, we can't let Mama think she has us all figured out...........

Happy Gotcha Day, Festus!!

This is Mama taking over the blog. I can't believe that 4 years ago today I went & picked up the love of my life!! He was just the cutest little furball ever. Don't get me wrong.....I love all 3 of my babies, but Fes is my snuggler & we share a bond that I don't have with Sammy or Emma. They are more loving than they used to be since I became a "single mom", but Festus has been a lovebug from the first moment I ever held him!

I wish I had some baby pictures of him but somehow when I changed computers they didn't come along.....

This picture of him was after his 1st (and so far last) haircut:
He looks like he's trying to figure out how that happened to him.
Happy Gotcha Day, Fes!!

Sorry we haven't been blogging, Mama said she's been down in the dumps. We thought she was going to work when she left here, not to the dumps!! Anyway, we told her that all our new bloggie friends would forget about us if we didn't blog soon, so she said we could blog today.

Mama's been hanging out with us alot lately, as she should. That way we can totally ignore her unless she's trying to read the paper, work on the bean snuggle she's making or when she's at the computer. That's when we all want to be loved on, sometimes all 3 of us at the same time!

She did go to town on Sat. to see Auntie Lori, you know what that means......loving on baby kitties! So we left her a couple of surprises for when she got home. One of us (not saying which one) yakked a big ole hairball on the kitchen table, it was a beauty!!! We wanted her to take a picture of it, but she just cleaned it up & gagged. And one of us (again no names) left a nice pile of yak in the livingroom......too bad she doesn't go barefoot. Hee hee.

The only thing is, she had a surprise for us too. When we were checking out the other kitty smells on her, we noticed a different was WOOFIE!!!! And not Auntie Lori"s woofie either, we know Shadow's smell & this wasn't it. It seems Mama decided to go to her friends house to get her hair cut. Mama's friend has a mama chihuahua with a baby. Mama was loving on a baby woofie!! She said the baby had Parvo awhile back & almost went to the Rainbow Bridge, twice! But the baby's well now but apparently being sick stunted her growth because she is the same size as a 10 week old puppy. That's how old she was the first time Mama saw her & she isn't any bigger.

We're sorry the baby woofie was so sick & we're glad she's OK now, but Mama has GOT to stay away from ALL babies.......we don't want any babies of any kind here!!!! Silly Mama.
